Difficult times have come, but how can Americans overcome?

Glenn kicked off the radio show this morning with two stories that may seem like they don't affect your life, but Glenn really thinks that they do. In one, a woman shot a man in what she claimed was self-defense and then took his photo with her cell phone before driving off. In another, a man posted a video of his wife's temper tantrum. Reacting to the videos, Glenn was left wondering how Americans have become so self-absorbed and in love with themselves - and told listeners about a Bible passage that showed exactly what was happening in the world.

"When I watched that videotape, I saw those two stories last night and I thought to myself, we are in interesting times," Glenn said.  "Men now are lovers of themselves.  They are not ‑‑ they are not in love with anything but themselves.  Geraldo Rivera tweeting a picture of himself, he is a lover of himself, not truth.  Himself.  We are covetous.  With Al Sharpton, boasting.  That he took the anger and he organized that anger.  Look at our president the way he stands, with his chin up in the air like Mussolini.  We are proud.  We are arrogant.  We are blasphemous.  Chanting hail Satan.  Just outside of the capitol in Austin."

"We are disobedient to our parents.  Tell me the respect that we have for parents anymore.  "I want my healthcare."  You had yours, grandma.  Remember that quote?  We are unthankful.  How many times have your kids really been grateful for anything, really, truly grateful?  We are unholy.  We don't have natural affection towards people anymore.  We don't have natural affection?  We don't ‑‑ we're turning into those people in China that ‑‑ remember that video that came out about a year ago where a kid was run over in the street and they just kept running over him, and people would actually step over this child?  Do you remember that?  We are losing our natural affection for each other.  We are truce‑breakers.  Do our ‑‑ do our allies even know where we stand?  Does our word mean anything anymore?  We're false accusers.  "You're a racist!  It's your fault!"  We are despisers of those that are good.  We are traitors, we are heady, we are high‑minded, we are lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God.  There are those who have the form of godliness.  At the same time those who have the form of godliness deny the power of God.  Men are corrupt.  And those who are godly, those who try to stand for those things that are right are suffering persecution and soon prosecution."

Glenn said that the news today reminds him of 2 Timothy 3 in The Bible:

3 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money,boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, [a]haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of [b]godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6 For among them are those who [c]enter into households and captivate [d]weak women weighed down with sins, led on byvarious impulses, 7 always learning and never able to come to the [e]knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.9 But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as [f]Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.

10 Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, [g]perseverance, 11 persecutions, andsufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me! 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is [h]inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for[i]training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

Glenn said, "As I lay in bed last night truly frightened for my country and mankind in a different way, not about the red, white and blue - but about humanity. And then I turned the page to Chapter 4 as I thought to myself, 'So what do we do? What do we do?' Tell the truth. Tell the universal everlasting truth. Say it with everything in you. Reprove, rebuke, exhort, beg if you have to, with all long suffering, endurance. Because the time will come. The time is here. When most people just will not be able to endure the truth, they'll chase after their own lusts and their own desires and they'll heap those things on themselves and they will surround themselves with teachers and professors and educated of the world to give them and tell them the things they want to hear. And they will turn their ears and their heads and they will no longer even listen to the truth. And then they will just start listening and accepting fables."

"But we have to keep our eye on the truth, and nothing grand, nothing profound, if you will, nothing Earth‑shattering, nothing that anybody had to study for, you know, 40 years. I've spent my whole life. Simple. Truth. And endure all the things that will happen. And become an evangelist for that truth. The truth that there is a god. He's going to judge all of us in the end. He's the only ‑‑ he's the only time that there will ever be true justice. There will never be justice. There will never be equality. There will never be anything because man is involved. But there is coming a time when he will judge, and whether it's you or the other guy that "gets it" in the end, I got it. I'll be judged, you'll be judged and so maybe we should serve him. And the best way to serve him is to serve our fellow man. And how do we serve our fellow man?"

"You know what? As a parent, as a parent there are times when you just cannot console your own children. There's nothing you can say. They're beyond reason. And you just hold them and you just tell them it's going to be okay. It's going to be okay because I know tomorrow comes, and I know we can start all over, and I know, honey, you don't want to hear this, but this will make us stronger. It's going to be okay. Find the truth and dedicate your life to it."

"I'm a watchman on the tower and it is my responsibility to tell you the things that I see coming, but once I've told you, you are the watchman on the tower. If you don't say it, if you don't preach it, if you don't dedicate your life as much as I dedicate my life. Every second of the day I'm trying to find out how I'm trying to get more people to understand. If you don't do it, judgment's on you, not me. It's your job."

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
