Glenn pledges $100,000 donation to Christians United for Israel during keynote speech

Tuesday night, Glenn Beck spoke before the Christians United for Israel Conference in Washington D.C as part of their “Night to Honor Israel”. In the speech, Glenn called for Christians everywhere to unite and stand for Israel. But he said it was more to just say you were standing for Israel, those actions need to be put into words.

“Miracles do happen, Pastor Hagee got me to come back to Washington D.C.,” Glenn joked as he opened his speech.

When Glenn spoke two years ago, he said that the world was about to turn upside down. Today, he said, the world is truly spinning out of control. But after two years of calling for Christians to stand with Israel and an evening full of speakers celebrating the relationship between Christians and Jews – Glenn was left to wonder if there was anything left to say that hasn’t already been said. After all, how can a speech halfway around the world help save the Middle East when no one in the Middle East appears able to help their neighbor?

But Glenn said there was only one answer that could empower people of faith in the Middle East to stand against their enemies: God.

“Christians in the Middle East and Jews in the Middle East are standing because they have a power unlike any other power on Earth. They have the power of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” Glenn said to applause.

Glenn also denounced the current administration’s treatment of Israel, one of America’s closest allies. He said “our government is on the wrong side” when it comes to the state of our foreign policy in the Middle East.

One of the major themes of Glenn’s speech was the historical persecution of the Jews and how much of what we see today echoes what we have seen in the past. Despite the overwhelming historical evidence, America does not seem to recognize that the same patterns of willful ignorance and hatred are repeating themselves.

“We haven’t always been blind. We choose to be blind,” Glenn said, “We have been convinced some way or another that this time is different.”

To illustrate his point, he brought out several historical pieces, including a handmade whip from Auschwitz, a teacher’s manual that explained how to identify Jewish students and explain away their sudden absence to others in the class, and a letter signed by Neville Chamberlain. He spent a lot of time with the Auschwitz whip, pointing out that someone had to hand make an instrument of pain and torture for another human being.

What are the roots of the problems facing Israel, America, and the rest of the free world? Glenn pointed to Timothy 2:3 , which said:

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.

Greedy, boastful, arrogant, ungrateful, and unholy - does any of that sound familiar?

But as much as the problems are found in the scriptures, so are the solutions. He pointed to Ezekiel and the "Watchmen on the wall", whose job it is to warn when trouble is coming. Glenn put himself into the shoes of the watchman, saying that he dedicates himself to warning others about what he sees coming. But others also have to stand and be watchmen themselves.

“I firmly believe that each one of us was born at this time for a reason,” Glenn said. He then made a call for each and every person to gird themselves and prepare to be an outcast as they stand for Israel and for truth.

Putting his own words into action, Glenn pledged a $100,000 to ChristiansUnited for Israel and their campus outreach program.  “We must have our shoulders behind them (the youth) and prop them up and do all that we can do. These are the days,” Glenn said. “It will be amazing to see God’s work”.

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:

And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:



Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

RELATED: 'Arrogant fool' Jim Acosta exposed MSM's dishonest border agenda — again.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
