Glenn: "My job is no longer to warn. My job is to help chart a new course."

Glenn started the radio show this morning in a very different way than most people were probably expecting. While the rest of the mainstream media was focused on the latest information and misinformation coming out of Boston, Glenn was mentally and emotionally in a very different place. He found himself re-evaluating his role in the national conversation, one where he was no longer the person trying to warn people about impending trouble, but one where he was inspiring and uplifting Americans who were struggling during increasingly tough times so they could continue to care, to comfort, and to restore America.

He had spent the day Tuesday with a friend and employee who has been very sick for the past few years and likely has only a few weeks left to live. When he got on the plane and started to head home, he found himself in a very philosophical mindset - and decided to try and inspire people this morning rather than focus on the anger that comes from the attack on Boston. He played a scratch track of a song that will be played at the opening of The Man in the Moon, a beautiful song celebrating America.

"I see my job as it has been in the past, to warn. It is not one I've wanted. It's not one that's a lot of fun, quite honestly. It's not one that is worth any kind of money that I could make. But it's one that I strangely found myself able to do," Glenn explained on radio this morning. "I haven't felt it was my job to lead, it is my job to warn."

Glenn said that there are a few things that people need to know today.

"Here is the lesson that I think we've got to learn. Our society is on a course of destruction and disaster, and I think we all know it. Our families are on a course for disaster, and I think -- I hope we know it. Our finances are on a course of disaster, and I think we all know it. The world is on a self-destruct course," Glenn said.

But what's the solution? Some will surely come out and call for more restrictions and more security - but will that really protect us? Glenn said that twelve years later, the terror attack in Boston still happened - just a few miles from where the hijackers stayed a few days before 9/11.

"The lesson we've learned here is they can't protect you. And you have to stop giving away your freedom. America is no longer the country that she was 12 years ago. She never will be. America has fundamentally been transformed. And so it's time to chart a new course," Glenn said.

Glenn said it was time for a new American Revolution, but not one fought with guns. One fought following the example of Ghandhi.

"This is a personal revolution," Glenn said.

"My job is no longer to warn," Glenn said. "My job is to help chart a new course. More than that I think or less than depending how you look at it, I think that's so my job is to help keep you awake. I think my job is now to help you feel. To help you to continue to care. To help you not get so beaten down. To stand with you and show you the light at the end of the tunnel, because there is one. It doesn't look like we thought it would look like. I think that's even better."

"I do believe that the America we all grew up in is gone. But something better is about to come around the corner if the people who believe in the Constitution keep their heads and restore, rebuild and remain awake."

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."
