Glenn: "There are miracles on the horizon"

I want you to know that I am proud to say I'm your friend. I am proud to claim you as an audience. I want to spend a few minutes, and just before we get into all the news of the day, sometimes you get so close to something that you don't see it anymore. And I want to make sure that you take some time today to see what you are building.

I grew up at a bakery - and you'd never guess by fluctuating weight. When I grew up, we all worked in the bakery, and high father was a fantastic baker. We used to have bubbling chocolate and bubbling butter always on the stove at the bakery. And that was because if something hot came out of the oven, you could just dip it in butter or dip it in chocolate and you could eat it. And I mean, it was fantastic. But I got so sick of it because I was so close to it.

My father's bread was just some of the best bread ever. I have a dear, dear friend who makes bread in Phoenix, Arizona. She's got to be in her 70s now. It's the best bread I've ever had. Every time I go, she makes a loaf of bread for me. And it's the best bread I've had since my grandmother or since my father. But I used to take my German chocolate cake this my lunch and I would trade it for Wonder Bread at school because Wonder Bread had chemicals in it. Wonder Bread was the greatest. And we couldn't have Wonder Bread.

I was so close, the kids would look at me and and I know now they were teasing, but they were like, 'We got Wonder Bread. We got some Wonder Bread today. What have you got?' I'd be like, 'I got German chocolate cake.' 'I don't know. Okay.'

But I was too close to it. So I didn't see it.

I want you to see who you are.

I believe this radio audience and this growing network has the most incredible listeners, readers, and viewers in the country, possibly the world. I don't know how you measure this, but here we are a little group, a little group of people that are mocked and ridiculed, held out as hate mongers and everything else. We're not a religious organization. We're a group of people that actually believe in something, and to categorize our beliefs into something as shallow as politics is to grossly distort what is actually in plain view for thin to see.

I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by people who really do believe that the world can be a better place. All you have to do is care for one another. Love one another. We don't have to agree with everybody. You don't have to legislate or tax kindness or charity. In fact, you can't legislature self into a place of love. What this audience and what this staff suggests is the world can be a better place if we just live our principles and our values.

Through Mercury One we were the first, if not the first on the scene for Hurricane Sandy. The stories we didn't tell of the people who you fed, you clothed, you gave shelter, you gave water to is astounding. How you changed of Chris Kyle's children and in 24 hours you stepped to the plate and offered what is going to be a million dollars, by the end of this hour will be a million dollars, a million dollars for disaster relief. I give you my word every dollar of that, every dollar of that will go to the people of Moore, Oklahoma. What media group can claim this? None. Not NBC, not ABC. How much money, honestly how much money do they raise when they do their hurricane relief funds and they have every band and they spend millions and millions of dollars?

I got home night before last at 6:30 or 7:30, I don't even know when the first tweet came out and I said, 'Tornado. Give. We're going to go ‑‑ I need some trucks. We're going to deliver some food that we have through Operation Blessing. I need two semi‑trucks, two eighteen‑wheelers.' An hour later I had them. An hour after that we were packing the trucks. Four hours after that, we were pulling into a church parking lot, just down the street where the devastation was, and a woman came up wearing flip‑flops and a T‑shirt in the middle of the night and said, 'Is this where I can get some food.'

Ponder today and accept that you are part of a growing group of people that is truly amazing. Understand that you make a difference. If you are still filled with those silly or old‑fashioned ideals that the world scoffs at, that the media mocks, that Hollywood tries to tell you doesn't exist and never did, know this: Mr. Smith does go to Washington but only when we expect him to be there.

When we accept that Frank Capra was panned over and over again by the same kind of jaded insiders that too many times we find ourselves listening to today. When we accept, then we can choose a different path and change the world. I do believe, and I think you do too, that whether it's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington by Frank Capra or It's a Wonderful Life, another movie pronounced dead on arrival at the time of release, just know this: That world does exist, even in small doses. But because you live, the world is a better place. Because you choose to believe and strive, neighbors in the end really do rally around friends, strangers, and neighbors. Because you refuse to give up, there are people who went to bed last night, even if it was on a cot in a church hallway with the press outside trying to talk to them and ask them how they feel. Because you live, perhaps somebody went to bed last night thinking to themselves, it really is a wonderful life.

The good news is it has just begun.

There are miracles on the horizon.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
