3 ways to get TheBlaze

Hello America,

I’ve been out on vacation this week with the family visiting friends and working with the American Dream Labs team on The Man in the Moon. I have some exciting updates that I'll share with you Monday on the radio show. But I wanted to write you all a note to just say “Thank you” to everyone who has participated in our “Get TheBlaze” campaign over the past few weeks and encourage you to keep making your voice heard. I’d also like to ask those of you who haven't contacted your TV provider to take a few minutes today and make your voice heard by requesting that TheBlaze be added to your channel lineup.

We’ve had 97,000 people contact their TV providers via e-mail, 43,000 place phone calls, and countless numbers of posts on Facebook and Twitter. Those are incredible numbers, and I’m so very blessed to have such an actively engaged audience.

Just last week, we announced four new TV providers that have listened to YOU, their customers, and added TheBlaze to their channel lineup: Blue Ridge Communications (the nation’s 21st largest cable operator), BEK Communications, Sweetwater Cable Television and Atwood Cable. Those are just the first wave of new providers, and I’m excited that they've joined DISH Network in giving their customers the choice of TheBlaze.

In addition to the four new providers, there is some movement with other groups interested in adding TheBlaze. Unfortunately, my staff has sworn me to secrecy - and are most likely reading this e-mail now to make sure I don’t slip up - but we are making some movement with other providers and it is truly all because of your phone calls, e-mails, tweets, and Facebook posts.

And yet, despite your phone calls, there are still some out there who are not listening. On Facebook, most of the major TV providers are delivering generic responses and links off their page to make sure your messages don’t go viral. Meanwhile, the Executive team at TheBlaze, who are working day and night to get our channel into your homes, are being told that there isn’t enough interest or they aren’t looking to add any new channels until at least 2015.

Look, I’m behind a microphone three hours every morning having a conversation with an audience of millions. I think if I gave responses like that to the people who were investing their time and their money into my product and my company I would be left on a street corner speaking into a tin cup.

I’ve always said that I have one of the best audiences in the world, and that’s because we treat one another with mutual respect and we are working together, you and I, toward a common goal: The restoration of America and everything that made it great. Everything I do, I do it because I want to reconnect us all with the things that made this country great. The things that made us good. And TheBlaze is going to be play a big role in how I personally will do this. Everyone has their role to play in life, their own way that they will contribute to this common goal. This is mine.

But I need your help, because only YOU can make these giant media companies pay attention.

Here are three ways that you can help us get the attention of these TV providers: 

  1. Call 1-800-996-2529. We will connect you directly to your cable company. By far, this is the most impactful thing you can do because it directly impacts their bottom line and you’ll be dealing directly with an employee of your TV provider.
  2. Post a message on your TV providers Facebook page. We’ve got a list of links to most of them HERE. This is a way to publicly show your support for TheBlaze and a way to spread the message to other people and get them to join our cause.
  3. Send an e-mail. We’ve made it quick and easy, just click HERE and we’ll help you make your voice heard in just a few minutes.

Let’s show them that there is demand for a network that deals in truth and that there are people out there in the country who want another option than what is currently being offered by CNN, MSNBC, Al Jazeera America, and all the rest.Again, and I cannot say it enough, thank you for your dedication and your support. 

Laus Deo,

 

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
