Glenn to California Conservatives: Good 'requires people to stand and give it all'

Glenn was invited to speak at David Horowitz's West Coast Retreat in California over the weekend, pressing the importance of culture and American history to a large and engaged audience.

In his opening remarks, Glenn laid out exactly why culture was so important, pulling out a line from the Disneyland Prospectus he won at auction in 2010.

The Prospectus says Disneyland will be based upon and dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and hard facts that have created America. And it will be uniquely equipped to dramatize those dreams and facts and send them forth as a source of courage and inspiration to all the world.

"That is what all of us must take up and do. We have a story to tell. We have the greatest story the world has ever heard - the story of real freedom," Glenn explained.

Through the power of technology, anyone who wants to tell a story - whether through music, film, writing, etc - can do so. But Glenn stressed the importance of the story itself. He ran through tales from throughout American history, from Edison to Tokyo Rose to Woodrow Wilson, that many have never heard. He said if these stories, and the truths within them, are told in a way that connects and resonates with people, it can cause a shift in the culture and the way people think.

"Progressives are nothing more than patient communists. And so we now are building a movement that is also patient. Must be patient. Must know that we have allowed over a hundred years of damage to be done and there is much to repair," Glenn said.

After running through stories from different periods of history, Glenn admitted that it's easy to think that it's too hard to fight when things are dark - but everyone must make a choice to stand and to live.

"The good guys win in the end because good is a much more powerful force. But it requires people to stand and give it all," Glenn said.

"Dietrich Bonhoeffer won. Martin Luther King won. Gahndi won. Jesus won," he added.

He encouraged people to think back to 1940s Germany. While that may have been one of the world's darkest hours, people chose to stand up and fight back against Hitler and the Nazis. Just a few years later, the nation of Israel was founded. Could anyone have seen that coming when Hitler was rising to power and extinguishing the lives of million of Jews in Europe?

"Stand back and watch the awesome power of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob," Glenn said.

But it's not easy to stand. It requires you to know who you are and what you believe, and it requires you to be an example to others. To paraphrase 'Star Wars', it's easy to give into the Dark Side. Glenn told a personal story of his own internal battles between love and hatred.

"One day I was facing a really tough day and I had two ways to go. I could let my political foes have it and I could smear them, or I could let them continue to do what they were doing and I could let that battle be fought by a power far greater than me and believe in Divine Providence and not become someone I despised. But it was very hard and it would have been a very easy win."

In order to stay focused on the right path, Glenn carried a compass that George Washington used during his time as a surveyor and repeated the mantra "Stay true, just get through it." While he was holding the compass, he found a thumbprint that he believes came from George Washington, and he imagined Washington rubbing the same compass and repeating the same mantra as he faced his own struggles.

"Stay true just get through it."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
