Glenn: Change your outlook, change your life

The below is adapted from Glenn's monologue on radio today

I want to just explain something that is more of a personal note.

For the long‑term listeners and readers that are really trying to actually change their lives, I am convinced that we are the open‑minded ones and they are the closed‑minded ones.

How many things in your life have you changed in the last five years? How many things did you think you knew and your opinion has completely changed in the last few years? They try to say that we're closed‑minded, but we are the ones that have left the Republican Party. They are the ones that still bought in to the Democratic Party. And they bought into it hook, line, and sinker. And they still do. They still do. No matter how many times they're betrayed, no matter how many times their values are betrayed, they still hold on. So whatever. And I say this to the Republicans as well, those people who say "No, no, I'm telling you, John Boehner, he's my guy. Now that John Boehner is in charge, he..." Uh‑huh. How many times do they have to stick a fork in you?

I have learned, I think you have as well, that the answer does not come from Washington. The problem comes from Washington.

It's very easy to figure out what the problem is, but you have to change the language. You have to accept the true language and not the language that the progressives have given.

The progressives came in and they were exposed during the Woodrow Wilson administration because they became overzealous. They were exposed for what they were and so they had to change the Progressive Party, they changed the progressive name into liberal.

A classic "liberal" used to mean, and it does everywhere else in the world, that you are for small government, that you are for maximum freedom of the individual. Well, they had to change that. And so now we have been arguing conservative and liberal.

They're not liberals. They're progressives. And they are in both parties. And when somebody stands up and says "I'm fighting for you," if he's fighting for the Constitution and limited government, then he is fighting for you. But if he is fighting for expanded power over people's lives, he is not fighting for you, at least in the way that our understanding always has been.

What we all claim we want - and I know I want: Give me responsibility or give me death. Not just liberty. I'm not looking just for freedom. I am looking for personal responsibility that comes along with that freedom.

Now, we have given up on Washington, even though at the same time the ironic thing is we have never had more clout or power in Washington, I contend, for at least in my lifetime. We have real true constitutional watchdogs in congress and in the Senate, but we have given up, and we're starting now to pay attention to our own homes, which frightens me little bit because maybe we have not paid attention to our local issues as much as we need to because the progressives are busy taking over state by state and town by town. And you'll see it. And you'll see it but all the new regulations that your city is putting in. Those are all things to shackle a man.

But I have had an interesting summer for reasons that we'll get into some other point. I am going to change the way I work. We already have changed the way we work. I am going to focus more on the things that, quite honestly, bring me joy.

I have focused for so long on the things that have made me miserable. I have told you in the past ‑‑ and I know you feel exactly the same way ‑‑ that we have watched people kill the country we feel deeply about. Those on the left don't, but we do. We feel it's an exceptional place, and I feel as though I have seen a killer that I can identify, the progressive movement, and we have seen them lie their way into our child's bedroom every single night and smother it with a pillow. And every day we get up and we're like, "No, don't. No, no, he's a killer. He's trying to kill everything that you love. Don't. No, no. Will somebody listen?" And every night they come in.

This is what I feel like my job has been: To try to ring the bell. To warn you that there is somebody that's trying to smother everything that we hold dear and love and kill it. And we have watched them do it. And for the most part we feel at the end that they've been successful, and we haven't been.

That is not true.

But because of that feeling, I think that we have paid a real price in who we are. I know I have paid a price higher than I thought it was going to be, and I think my family was the next thing on that block. And I'm not going to pay that price. That is not a price that I will pay. I am just not willing to do it.

And so I am going to start focusing on the things that bring me joy, and Man in the Moon was the first step in that direction. And being able to lift people up.

The other day we had a woman in the audience.After the show we had the cameras go out and get comments from people and what they thought. This woman, she had I think blue hair or green hair. She was 20‑something, nose ring, and she didn't look like what anybody in the media would say is a Glenn Beck fan, but she was. And she said, "I just wanted to thank Glenn for giving me something and speaking the words that I didn't even know I needed to hear." She said, "Now I know. Tomorrow will be better. And I can make it. Because I'm the one writing the chapter. I'm the one writing the story." It was fantastic.

I started last week looking for music and everything else that is uplifting. We have always listened to, like, Christian music and stuff at the house, but that's not it. But for me, I want something else, and I want something fun, because I need to inject fun into my family life, while getting rid of all of the computer games and everything else.

Getting rid of electronics been a chore. But I have noticed a difference in my family since we turned the computers off. The computers are not allowed on while the kids are awake. I can go do my e‑mail and everything else when the kids go to sleep, but there are no games at all in the house. I mean, we took Wii away, everything. I made a rule: Anybody caught playing a game in this house, every computer and every electronic device in this house will go into the pool, and I mean it with everything in me.

I've already now seen the results of getting rid of it. It's good. You can still have the computer and everything else, but no video games. And we're just playing regular games as a family. And we have changed a few things. We're reading at dinner, we're reading our scriptures together and we're talking, we're playing a game right after dinner, after we all clean up every night. We're doing these things. And I've already seen a change.

The other thing I've done is I started trying to find songs  - and I'm going to find them in different periods, but right now I'm stuck in the Forties and the Fifties because the songs back then, especially during the Great Depression, were different.I contend that we haven't really seen anything like it since the 1960s.

Go back and listen to That's Life by Frank Sinatra. Really listen to the words of That's Life. What is that saying? "You know I've been up, I've been down, I've been a king, I've been a pawn, I've been everything. And every time I pick myself up again and I tell myself, that's life." Now, that's the exact opposite of what our society's teaching. You would hear that song on the radio today; I don't think anybody would pen those words anymore! But that's what made us great. You look at the words of Accentuate the Positive, or Swinging on a Star. You look. Look at the words. You want to swing on a star and carry moon beams home in a jar? Or would you rather be a pig? Listen to the words.

So I put together, I think there's 30 or 40 songs that I put together, and we have been playing them in the house for the last week. And I looked at my wife yesterday and I said, "You notice a difference in the house?". I have.

I want you to go on a journey with me. I want you to try an experiment. And this isn't for everybody, but if you are tired of being sick and tired, change your attitude. I want you to say these words:

1) I am healthy

2) I am happy

3) I am an unstoppable force as I do His will.

I am a partner with the infinite, and as He tells me what to do, I am unstoppable.

You start putting positive in yourself because we have put enough poison into ourselves. This society is poison.

You change just your home and what you pour into your head every day. I've only done it for a week now, and I'm telling you there's a huge difference. A huge difference. Pour it into yourself. Do an experiment. See if it changes your outlook.

You change your outlook, you'll change your life.

How RFK's example can help our nation in the wake of Trump's attack

How did you feel last Saturday when you heard the news that a former president of the United States narrowly avoided an assassin's bullet by a mere few inches? Were you angry at the media for their constant demonization of Trump and his conservative contingency? Did you blame the left for curating a political climate that fostered an assassination attempt?

In his immediate reaction to the news, Glenn pointed us back to a similar moment in American history: April 4th, 1968—the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

"The best speech I've ever heard given was by RFK Sr. on the day Martin Luther King was killed" - Glenn

Robert F. Kennedy, the father of current independent presidential candidate RFK Jr., was en route to Indianapolis when he heard the terrible news. His security team, expecting violent outrage across the country, asked RFK Sr. to turn around and head back to safety. But as Glenn said, RFK Sr. believed in the good in people and demanded to give his speech. He arrived in Indianapolis Park late in the day, and he addressed the crowd of predominantly black campaign supporters.

There were no riots in Indianapolis that night.

The message RFK Sr. gave that night wasn't one of vengeance, hatred, or hopelessness, but of calm and goodness. He appealed to the best in people. He called for people to set aside their differences, anger, fear, and confusion and instead express love and compassion towards one another. RFK Sr. asked for wisdom and the pursuit of justice so that we might be resolute in our unity as the country faces another difficult chapter.

What we need in this country is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another.

Glenn has made a similar plea to our nation—a plea for unity and not to lash out in fear and anger. Don't use this time to blame your friends and family who disagree with you politically for what happened or to tell them "I told you so!" Instead, reach out with compassion and grace. This is a turning point in American history. Let's turn it upward, away from hatred and violence and towards unison and compassion.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.

During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?
