Glenn: Live like people determined to be free

Glenn talks about the time frame in which things will be happening now that Obama has won re-election. The tough times will hit more quickly than they would have if the election went the other way - so how do you prepare? Look at things differently -- and behave like people determined to be free.

"So I saw a post online from somebody who kind of made sense there for a while, John Michael Greer. He's a historian and conservationist. So, you know, only about half of it you're going to ‑‑ he believes, I'm sure he believes in the electronic winter tree. But he says we have to come in terms of the fact that we don't have limitless energy and we don't have limitless resources and we don't have limitless time. Now he's talking in the conservation way. I'm not. I think you can read this, take it out of the conservation idea and look at this as our life. We don't have limitless energy. You have limitless energy? Because I don't. We don't have limitless resources."

"So now what do we do? If we recognize those things, we have to be somebody who, as George Washington was followed by Anthony Wayne and they won at Stony Point, Anthony Wayne wrote a letter to him. He had a bullet in his head and he had been shot during the operation and he said to George Washington, he said first I've got to write this letter to Washington and then you can take the bullet out of my head. He said, "Your men and officers behaved like men determined to be free." The only way you behave like people that are determined to be free ‑‑ and I'm not sure I even understand what that truly means, but write that down. Put that in front of you: Behave like someone who is determined to be free. That will change your life. I have a feeling that is a life‑changing phrase. You don't ‑‑ you don't fritter your time away. But we need to do that as a group or there will only be 10% of those who believe in the Constitution and we will be the absolute outer fringe. They're trying to make us feel that way."

Glenn pointed out that in the critical swing states there was only a 407,000 vote margin between Obama and Romney.

"407,000 votes. Let's make sure we keep this into perspective. They're going to try to teach you that this was a mandate. 407,000 votes. That's not a mandate. That's not one side being dead. That is a well contested battle. And our side, a lot of them didn't stand up. Their side, they got all the new people out. They got all the people out that they have been going for. We didn't. We didn't. Now how's that possible? We had fewer people vote this time because we are not behaving like people determined to be free. And so those of us who are awake, those of us who are doing the work, we need to realize that things are not going in our direction with the media and with education, and we have to make changes, now."

"Things are not going in our direction. With the media. With education so we need to make changes now. Things are not going our way in Washington and we need to make changes now. This blogger writes:

If you’ve ever seen a fifty-year-old man trying to pretend that he’s seventeen, it’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing to everybody and it rarely ends well. That’s what America is right now. It’s two hundred something years old. It’s not an adolescent anymore. It needs to ditch the bright red car, stop trying to pick up teenage chicks, stop the binge drinking, and actually deal with the fact that there’s only so many years left. You need to do something useful with that time and not go around with everybody else – you know, China and Europe -- just rolling their eyes and trying to pretend that they don’t notice how we’ve combed our hair forward over our bald spot.

We are not in our mid life crisis. We are well into our autumn years. And we're about to head into winter. Now whether we see green shoots or not and spring crops up is really only up to us."

"I've talked to several people this weekend. I did two fundraisers in the last four days for Israel. I did one at Dallas Cowboys stadium on Thursday, and yesterday I did one in Houston. I was raising money in Houston for a hospital in Israel, and when I was over in Israel, I said that I would raise money for them because it was a children's hospital and they wanted to build a ‑‑ it's a regular hospital, but they wanted to build a children's hospital and they serve everybody, Christians, Jews, Muslims, everybody. And as a father of a child with special needs, I thought it was really worthwhile. But they've changed. They are no longer trying to build a children's hospital. They believe they need to build an underground hospital, one that will withstand bombings. They're right. The world is changing quickly. Quickly."

"So what do we do? How do we prepare? Well, first live like someone determined to be free. And that means cut yourself some slack from time to time because there's a lot of work to do and not everybody's doing it. We have to, and we will, but, you know, More‑On Trivia was Friday. Lots of laughs. I went to Skyfall this weekend. Great break. Go do something. Go enjoy. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself. Life is not just a dirge. It's not. But focus when you have to."

"This blog, again he was going on, you know, 'What can we do because, you know, things aren't sustainable because the UN can't take over fast enough.'But he actually had some good things in it. Get ahead of it. Get yourself some space. Work through the learning curve. Pick up a skill that you're going to need. Do it now, so by the time that it's necessary, you're comfortable with it and you know what you're doing. If you've already insulated your house, you may have a solar hot water system in place if you can afford one. You've torn up some of the grass in your back and turned it into a vegetable garden so you can stretch it out for staples. Know how to cook from scratch so you're not dependent on the vast corporate structure. Maybe you started developing some tradeable skills. Maybe a little basement workshop where you're doing something you can barter with your friends. Maybe you should brew some beer in the basement."

"The reason why I bring this up is I just want you to look at things differently. Look at the world differently and realize that our time frame has been shortened, I believe, but it will all work out to be for the best and for the best of the country if we behave like people determined to be free."

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.
