Man In The Moon: Glenn Beck Unplugged

On Friday morning, Glenn Beck spoke to a packed house in the Grand Ballroom at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah. The event was an unplugged Q&A session between Glenn and the fans who travelled from all over the country to attend The Man in the Moon.

Glenn walked out to a standing ovation alongside Stu and Pat, and Glenn kicked things off by telling fans he wanted to talk to them about the things that were on their mind.

The first fan question was from a dad who brought his kids to the event, and he wanted to know the best way to get them engaged in this movement. Glenn suggested people pick up Constitution Quest from TheBlaze Marketplace as a way to teach history and the Constitution to young people.

Glenn said The Man in the Moon is being made for other people as a way to connect them with the message. Glenn said he struggles with putting his name on books and events since it turns off people outside of the people who are in the core movement. The American Dream Labs are an attempt to get into entertainment and culture since that is "the first stop".

Fan asks if Glenn is planning to do anything to encourage racial diversity. He explained that six years ago he had a dream about George Whitfield and had been reading about him, and in the book he was reading Whitfield was preaching under a tree to a huge crowd when someone defecated on him from a tree. Glenn closed the book and didn't read it for six months because he felt he would be "that guy" - spreading the message and being attacked for it. He explained that the Civil Rights movement he has been talking about is rooted in spreading the importance of the Bill of Rights, and the man who will lead that movement is African America Ken Hutcherson. Glenn said not only has he been sincere and honest in dealing with Glenn, the fact that Hutcherson has Stage Four cancer means that he isn't looking for fame because he will pass away.

"Rights do not belong to one color. They were given to man and they were given by God," Glenn said. "We just need leaders in each community to tell their people 'get into the boat now' and it's coming."

Another fan asked about the history of revolutions, and Glenn said that best thing you can study and teach is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The idea of talking about any kind of armed revolution is extraordinarily dangerous, and that God must be at the center.

Glenn the audience that everyone needs to be at a place where if they feel a prompting from God that they are willing to act on that prompting. He told the story of how they found the song for the end of The Man in the Moon, which they only found a few days ago. He said the musician who composed it was playing

"Do exactly what God says and we'll be fine," Glenn said.

Glenn then moved onto the importance of culture. He explained we already have all the people who are "We the People" and we need to reach others. He also said that you have to look at both parties and see if they really stand for what you believe in. He said "There's going to come a time when you will have to say 'If this is what the GOP stands for, I want nothing to do with it.'"

Moving to education, a fan asked if there were plans for TheBlaze to make supplemental material for homeschooling. Pat  took the opportunity to plug the Education Conference tomorrow. Glenn said that he was putting all of his money onto the table for TheBlaze, The Independence Museum, The American Dream Labs, and more.

"What I'm telling you here is I am looking for Haim Solomon's. People who are looking through investments or because they want to do the right thing," Glenn said.

It's hard to fight against people like the Tides Foundation and other groups with unlimited funds, but Glenn said they were doing everything they could as fast as possible.

Towards the end, Glenn discussed the importance of friendship and how Pat was always steadfast in his support of Glenn even when he was at his worst. Glenn said that because of Pat the things that are happening now with Man in the Moon, TheBlaze, and more are possible.

A fan from Hong Kong asked if the movement would be taken internationally, and Glenn said that he has felt like it would be but first things have to be fixed in America. Other countries don't understand the Tea Party and movements like this one, and that Americans will have to lead and do so without arrogance.

"We have to have our [freedom] so strong that the rest of the world looks to it," Glenn said.

One fan asked if Glenn planned to talk more about Jesus Christ, and Glenn said that he would continue to speak about his faith and would do so in an open and inclusive way.

"The only answer is God and I will speak as non-divisively as possible," Glenn said. "We are all in the Army of God.

Things got emotional with the second to last fan who talked about making a quilt for Glenn, and he told the story of how he keeps all the quilts fan send him. When his dog Victor passed away he brought a few down and put them on the floor for him to lay on in his final days.

Glenn thanked the fans for coming and walked off to a standing ovation.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
