"Strength in numbers": Glenn discusses challenges facing those who take a stand

With all the mounting problems America faces and a President seemingly bent on making them worse, this morning on radio Glenn explained what you can do personally to make a difference.

"Gather yourself together in groups," Glenn told his radio audience. "There is strength is numbers."

What Glenn means by this is to surround yourself with those who live by the same principals and values that you do. Stop going to churches where you don't believe in what is being taught. Find a new church — one that strengthens you.

"Stop with tradition. Stop with convenience. If those traditions are not strengthening you, and strengthening the message and the meaning behind those traditions," Glenn said.

Christmas and the 4th of July are also examples of what Glenn was trying to explain. Every Christmas, Christians around the country get angry about the "war on Christmas" being waged by special interest groups in department stores and other public arenas. What are Christians doing to actually strengthen the true meaning and traditions of Christmas? So many people spending time outraged by whether or not the clerk at Macy's can say "Merry Christmas" — why are we spending Christmas at Macy's?

"Our traditions are changing and many of them have been," he said.  "Christmas was about Christ.  Christmas was about service.  Christmas was about Thanksgiving and prayer and all the things that are meaningful.  Christmas was getting together with family.  Now it is about gifts, buying, stuff, stress.  That's not -- get out of that tradition, and restore the tradition."

What about the 4th of July?

"When the founders were around that tradition was about Thanksgiving, recommitment, education, service.  Now it is solely about let's go out to the beach or let's get some hot dogs, let's go watch a fireworks show.  And that fireworks show is what? James brown and Bruce Springsteen, and maybe a Céline Dion song in there.  You don't know what it is anymore," Glenn said.

Many of the things that were once hold sacred have been made into jokes. Glenn recounted a conversation he recently had with his daughter who is working on the sequel to The Overton Window. She explained that she likes the sequel more than the original simply due to the change in tone.

She said, 'as much as you don't like it, Dad, when you talk in church tones or you talk about Bible stuff, or you talk about the try-corner hats, or you're quoting the founders — people in my generation — it's been made to be something that you mock. and so we don't listen to it.'  It's frightening stuff.  It's frightening stuff," Glenn emphasized.

This is why Glenn is emphasizing that there is strength in numbers.

"Find those people who are rock solid, and then hang on to each other," he said.

It's not popular to be outspoken on the things that were once considered good in our culture. As soon as you start supporting the principles that the media is trying to silence, they'll try to destroy you.

Even Glenn, who is now one of the most controversial public figures in America and hated by many on the left, was once one of the most popular and likable people in the public eye. He had a 'Q-score' that ranked him more popular than the Pope and just under Nelson Mandela.

Glenn never changed. The media did.

This morning, Glenn asked the questions, "What is a man? What does he have if he doesn't stand? If he is on his knees? Don't live life on your knees. Say what has to be said. .  Say how you truly feel.  Remain on your knees for guidance, and protection because if you remain on your knees, for those things, it will be the only way you will be able to stand.  But stand you must."

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
