Glenn: Never Quit

After a long Thanksgiving break, the last thing Glenn wants to do is look at the news. No one wants to talk about geopolitical topics (unless it's how Hamas is the victims of the evil Israelis) and there are too many stories about how Obama is the greatest president since Lincoln. It makes him want to unplug, until he remembers the first lesson he learned from the radicals: overwhelm the system. In the aftermath of the election, Glenn feels overwhelmed and knows that other conservatives feel that way too. But on Monday night, he had a conversation with the audience where he explained why and how they needed to keep everything in perspective.

"After the election we feel defeated, we feel like we spent four years and got nowhere. We feel discouraged and perhaps at times don't have the will to want to bother fighting it anymore. And i have to tell you the natural man in me feels the same way. That's why I thank God for my kids. They teach me more than even my parents did. They bring everything into proper perspective," Glenn explained.

"On Saturday I went to my son's baptism. I got to baptize him and let me tell you there is nothing more clarifying than standing in the water with your child. It were as if time suddenly stood still and nothing else mattered other than that little boy and the path being set before him. And the responsibility I have as his parent to help him stay on that path."

"Is there any job more important than that?"

Glenn said he is often told he is a celebrity and an entertainer with the ability to impact millions, and in comparison to that what can everyday people do to change the world.

"If you are a parent, I have news for you: you are a celebrity, too. With little fans who look up to you. Who believe in you. Who love you unconditionally. They want nothing more than to just have even a few minutes of your undivided attention. That's where it all starts."

But that's not where it ends. Glenn explained that with voter turnout at an all time low, it was time to come up with a new plan to change the direction of the country.

"We're preaching to the choir and the choir gets it. And I've got news for you, we're not going to bring people in with just anti-Obama stuff. That's why Kerry lost in 2004. The left had everything going for them on paper: unpopular president, media lining up to bash bush, hollywood... And they lost. We have to be for something. We must present the solution. We must show people the way out how to lead," Glenn said.

"My goal is this: When you watch the news, and you don't know what to do or how to do it or how it all works -- you also say 'Yet' because you know where you can find the answer."

Glenn hoped that viewers knew that they could turn to his show as a place to find answers and solutions, a place to recharge and refocus on where things are going when the news of the day seems so overwhelming.

He also said that much like a person can make an impact on the life of their child and other members of their family, his audience also makes a tremendous impact on him and his life. He told the story of a woman who made him a quilt that he and his wife use at their home, and she saw the video and reached out to say she was glad to see it in their home. He said another viewer made him a Christmas sweater that he planned to wear this year as well.

"The time you take to spend with this program and the ways you go about showing your support makes a difference in my life," Glenn said. "No matter how big or small the gesture, if you make a difference in peoples lives - even if it's only one person, it's worth it."

Glenn said that he was going on a book tour later this week. "I know we're not going to get to chat like we did in the days when it was just a few of us hanging out at the book store.But even the short amount of time means something to me. And I hope it means something to you."

After telling the audience about his friend Marcus Luttrell, a former Navy SEAL, and his motto of "Never Quit", Glenn encouraged the audience to take the time to keep perspective on the effects they have on the people in their lives.

"I hope you haven't unplugged, because we may be wounded, we may be disorganized and a little dazed and confused. But we're just getting started and we win in the end."

Candace Owens, BLEXIT founder and author of the upcoming book, "Blackout," joined Glenn Beck on Friday's GlennTV for an exclusive interview. available only to BlazeTV subscribers.

Candace dropped a few truth-bombs about the progressive movement and what's happening to the Democratic Party. She said people are practically running away from the left due to their incessant push to dig up dirt on anybody who disagrees with their radical ideology. She explained how -- like China and its "social credit score" -- the left is shaping America into its own nightmarish episode of "Black Mirror."

"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is Godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we a flawed. To be human is to be flawed."

Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower during the Obama administration, was found dead near Plymouth, California, on Friday.

Authorities said 66-year-old Haney died from a single gunshot wound to his chest, which was determined to be "self-inflicted." Read more on this here.

Haney was a good friend to Glenn Beck and the program. On radio Monday, Glenn said it's almost impossible for him to believe that the man he knew so well could have taken his own life.

"He was one of the most honorable men I've ever met," Glenn said. "A guy who was willing to put himself in danger. A guy who knew what he was dealing with, knew that he could be killed, or that he would be disappeared, or that he could go to prison. And he was absolutely unafraid. And this is one reason why I know, why I so strongly feel that he didn't kill himself."
