Glenn became emotional on radio today as he talked about what is coming in the days ahead with the immigration battle and other political fights. Progressives have already nudged and nudged - with the IRS and other scandals - the only thing left is a shove. We must be ready to stand our ground - and the only way to successfully do that is by changing our hearts. Glenn explains on radio today.
There is a story on the front page of TheBlaze now, the leading story, and it just was posted and it is trending big quickly and I need you to get this out as soon as you can and really educate yourself on this and make a decision on where you ‑‑ where you stand on this. It is a story, revolt among Republicans on immigration bill. 70 House members risk career in planned showdown with John Boehner, and everyone else involved in this. This is a ‑‑ this is a very ‑‑ this is the beginning or the end of the TEA Party, quite honestly, those with real value. Because they are going to be destroyed by this or they will be victorious. This is probably akin to the Rand Paul moment where he turned drones around. If the American people choose not to stand with them in a very visible way ‑‑ and I warn you, listen to me carefully: There will be those who join your ranks that are trying to pretend that they are you and they will be racist, they will carry racist signs. They are not on your side because they're not real. There may be some racists that join your ranks as real racists, but they are not a friend of the Constitution; they are not a friend of yours. And most likely, only because I read Cass Sunstein and I take the man seriously, as everyone should now that the IRS has done their job, I warn you, you will be infiltrated. And... now... is... the time.
I have begged you for years do the 40‑day, 40‑night challenge. Get the bad stuff out of your life. Don't hate. Serve. Love. Be charitable. Be good. Charity for all. It is time to double our efforts on serving others, and the reason we serve others is so that we do not change. Our hearts are going to be hardened. They are going to do everything they can. They already have. They have done everything they can to piss you off. It is only going to get worse. We are approaching the days of sicking dogs on people. They've already done all of their nudges. They did it with the IRS, they did it with the snooping. They are doing all of the nudges. The shoves are about to become part of your life. And it is ‑‑ it is essential.
Let me say some things that are probably going to lose respect for me, but... I have a hard time reading the scriptures. I have a hard time reading the Bible, all the thees and the thous and everything else. And I have told you, I have told you I think pieces of this in the past that I know where I am headed on two fronts, and I'm not going to get much more specific here. Next hour I'm going to tell you about the second front. But the first front ‑‑ the second front I like; the first front I don't, and it's a front that I have avoided like the plague. I've avoided it for a couple of reasons: Because in my head I think I know what it means, but I don't. In my head you don't want to be anywhere around someone like Martin Luther King because it leads to misery. I... there are just a very few things that I know in me for sure, and I know that we are not battling enemies of ours; we are battling enemies of His. And so they are His to take care of, and He will. We have to have the full armor of God on us, and I don't know how all of this works, but I know that the Black‑Robe Regiment plays a role. The Black‑Robe Regiment are Jews and Christians coming together, preachers and pastors and rabbis, priests coming together and standing together and putting all differences aside for the civil rights of man. Not playing politics, that's where you will get lost. If you start to worry about your ‑‑ if you will start worrying about your congregation and what they'll say, if you start worrying about how much money you will lose, you will lose. Don't pay any mind to where you are going to get your food or your clothing. Don't pay any mind to that. Know that somehow or another if you're doing the right thing, those things will be taken care of if you're a preacher or a pastor or rabbi. If you are standing for individual communication, individual responsibility to God, not some sort of a collective salvation. It happened before, and I know this to be true. And when we started in Washington, I was prompted that there needs to be a Black‑Robe Regiment again. I didn't even know what it was. And David said, "You're repeating history," and he explained it to me. And it's what the founders had, it's what the abolitionists had, it's what Martin Luther King had. It's what they tried to put together with people like Jim Wallis, but we know who he is and we dismiss him.
I will tell you that it has grown stronger in me and you have heard me talk about it on the air. I have been calling out the preachers and the pastors and the rabbis. And I don't know what you're doing with your priesthood, but if you have not done something that somebody without their priesthood cannot do, if you're not living your life at a much higher level, you will lose that power. If you are not on the edge, if you are not raising a standard for all man to see, you will lose that ability and that station.
I said to somebody the other day, they wrote to me and they said, you know, "I think, Glenn, that you are, you know, you're a leader of this and that." And I said, I don't know if that is true, but I have to stop, I have to stop rejecting things because I look at the giants of the past. I look at the George Washingtons and the Adams and all of those people, and I can see the potential in other people to be that, but I can never see the potential of me to be somebody greater than me. And that's a lie of the darkness. And I will bet you that George Washington and Sam Adams and Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King and Gandhi and all of them did not see themselves as those people. Those people were made into giants a lot later by other people. They just did the right thing and the right thing, the really right thing is total self‑sacrifice. If you lose your life for his sake, you will gain it. It doesn't make sense to a lot of people and those who wish to take things out of context will say I'm talking about suicide bombing. No. Behind me is a picture of Martin Luther King. It is the only one that is in the public domain that I can put on this set because the King family holds such a tight rein on everything. And the reason why it's in the public domain is because it is his arrest picture. He lost his life, his freedom, not for his own glorification but because it was right. And I can tell you he didn't want to do it. He knew what he was facing, as do all giants. Will you be a giant? You have been asking for giants. Find the giant inside of you. Look for those who are now taking a risk.
You have the guy from the NSA. I don't think this guy necessarily is a hero. I don't know who he is. I don't know enough about him. But the act itself is heroic. He tried to do it the right way. Who do you trust? He tried to do is the right way. He tried to get the word out. And now the media and everybody else is demonizing him. He's warning the people, "Your freedom is at stake." And how many are listening?
You have 70 people now, according to this story now with TheBlaze. I had a meeting with many of them. I looked them in the eye. Some of them I don't know; others I know. And they know this is it. The time is now. The time for political stuff to happen like the revolt is now. The time as a TEA Party member to stand is now. The time for the Black‑Robe Regiment is now.
Something happened on Capitol Hill that I won't discuss now, and I went. Something happened and I said this, I know, I said to this individual, I know, I'm on that. I know; I can't believe you're saying that. David Barton happened to be there about an hour later and I said, David, I have to tell you I have this piece, and I'm telling you the Black‑Robe Regiment must start right now. And he said, Glenn ‑‑ he shook his head and he said, "Glenn, itches just on the plane and I wrote a memo today, but the Black‑Robe Regiment, it has to start now. I just got an e‑mail from Jeff Allen. Jeff Allen's a comedian but he's spiritually in touch but he said, Glenn, I don't even know what this means. He said, I know you've been talking about things for a while, he said, but I can't sleep at night. I've been kept awake for the last few days. I have to ask you: What are you doing with the Black‑Robe Regiment? Because the time is right now. I know. I know. I know. If you haven't prepared to change your life, please. Please change it today. And change it for the better. Change it for all of the right reasons. Get all of the darkness out of you. There are ‑‑ a miracle is a change of perspective.
I'm working currently on, believe it or not, July 4th, 2014 now. And I told somebody the story this morning and I told them just the opening of it and they said, oh, my gosh, I never thought of that about the pilgrims. I said, what do you mean? And he said, the way you described the prayer, they all got together and they were not praying for the outside world to change. They were praying for their change, that they could be better. Even though all those around them were mocking, they weren't praying. They were praying for their heart to be softened. That they could be better. They're not going to change those other people. Treasure has been gathered up from all the world and bought all of the armies and the navies. It was purchased with blood money. You're not going to change those people. You're only going to get frustrated. You must change yourself. And the only way you will attract people is not through political rhetoric, not through anything. And I say this as such a flawed vessel. Do you know how many people the Lord had to go through to get to a recovering alcoholic Mormon? He had to go through a ton of people who just in the end were too weak to stand. I am a flawed person coming to you. I have no credibility on this at all. I'm a guy who has a hard time reading the scriptures and everything else, but I'm telling you... the only chance of survival is if you change your heart. It's hard because you got a lifetime built up. And even I have a lifetime. I said something last week, I said, I don't want to say divisive things anymore. And that day I called the First Lady a monster.
We're all trying. But set your feet on the path now. I know with everything in me, everything in me. Now is the time. And we are the people. It is you. Put aside all of your silly little belief that you don't play a role. Put it aside. Those are childish things. You are the person. We all are. And everyone's service is required at this time.
