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 Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
