Glenn: God is the answer

Between the government shutdown, the debt ceiling debate, the fight to defund Obamacare, and the current state of Washington, it is difficult to find much hope. On radio this morning, Glenn explained that it is time for the left and right to come together on the things that can unite us against the progressive element on both sides of the aisle, and we must look to God for the guidance and answers.

“We told you their intent. Fundamentally transform the United States of America. Redistribute the wealth. I told you that they see us as the wealthiest 1% of the world. So even the poorest among us are going to get hammered,” Glenn said. “The ship has already sailed, and they're counting on the power and the philosophies and the traps of men. There is only one way to beat it and that is to be absolutely clean; to do the right thing; to do the hard thing; to stick together; to be with like‑minded people that you think at least will stand when it comes time to stand; to be people of peace.”

You know, you can take and look at the correlation of when the Western world started to slide off the cliff. The Western world started to slide off the cliff when we started to lose our faith. Look what happened in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Look at that 150 or 200‑year period. For the first time in and around 1800, the world saw the individual for the very first time. We ended slavery, and the West declared slavery was wrong. Some lasted longer than others. We lasted longer here. Some just gave it up, some had wars over it, but we did it because we saw the power of the individual. That was a new idea. We went from candles and fire to heat and electricity. We went from drilling holes in people's heads to penicillin. We changed the world.

Why? What happened? I contend it is God. People found a real understanding of all men are created equal. You don't have to believe in God, but that is an important thing. All men are created equal.

Now, the reason why the French Revolution lost is because they went on to say all men are equal. No, they're not. They don't have equal outcome. They're created equal, so everybody gets their fair shot. Once you say all men are equal, well, then you've got a problem because once you start to look at wealth and everything else and equal outcome, then somebody has to change the rules to make it work right for somebody else. No. No, what we had was everybody is an individual and everybody has to stand on their own two feet. But then you couple that with faith, which taught charity. It is the Judeo‑Christian value of charity. And the Judeo‑Christian value of the power of the individual, that God loves each of us and created each of us as individuals. And he loves each of us. Good or bad, black or white, we're all his children. All of us. And it's for him to settle those scores. It's for us to try to do the right thing.

When you couple those two things in, all of a sudden invention kicks in. All of a sudden goodness carries the day. We've lost that. And anybody who tells you differently, I mean, look, I'm not on a mission. I'm not a preacher. I'm the worst guy to come and talk to you about these things. And these are the things that I've never wanted to do. I get up every day and I have to change this. But I get up every day and I don't want to do it. I don't want to do it. Somebody wrote to me and said, man, your ambition and the things that you're doing, I just don't want to do them. Well, neither do I.

So what drives me? I feel compelled to because I've been given much. I've been given freedom. I've been given an opportunity to wipe the mistakes of my past away. I've been given the opportunity to be who I want to be. And it's irresponsible. No, it's grotesque for me not to put every dime of everything I have, every breath that I have into that.

As I was sitting last night again at the hospital with my son, last week I was in the hospital with my daughter and last night I had to take Raphe to the hospital. He fell and he cut his head open. And I was sitting there and quite honestly, I was trying to make him think of anything, anything but getting stitches in the back of his head. And so quite honestly, not to be crude, after we prayed, I started telling him fart jokes because he's 9. And fart jokes work at 9. And so we were readying the torpedoes and launching them away because that's what kept him smiling and laughing. I got home and I thought, strangely, that's one of the best memories I have right now. I'd rather do that than anything else, just be with my family and just laugh and be there.

We're all in this together. The message is simple: Decency, honor, integrity, goodness, kindness, charity. God is the answer. Anything else will take you off course. And we will slip into the history books as a once‑great nation and a once‑great people. I'm not going to be a part of that. We can win because, if we are on God's side, who could possibly defeat him?

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
