Glenn declares today "the beginning of miracles" at fiery FreePAC speech

On Saturday, thousands of conservative and libertarian grassroots activists gathered in Louisville, Kentucky for FreePAC Kentucky. Hosted by FreedomWorks, the event featured conservative pundits, politicians, entrepreneurs, and community leaders offering solutions to the problems that face our nation. From TheBlaze's Andrew Wilkow to Kentucky senate candidate Matt Bevin, FreedomWorks president Matt Kibbe to Reverend C.L. Bryant, the day's speakers sought to provide the tools and techniques needed to "take America back from the Washington establishment."

Glenn delivered an impassioned keynote address to an enthusiastic crowd in which he outlined why we must learn to understand our history before we can work to restore our nation.

"We don't know our own history," Glenn said as he showed the audience a handful of historical artifacts from his collection. "We have seen these times before. History tells the story."

The story of Iva Toguri (aka Tokyo Rose) is one that has been lost and distorted many times over. But, as Glenn explained, it is important to teach our children the truth so that we can understand she was in fact a hero not a traitor. How did her story become so sensationalized? The government and media needed a scapegoat during a trying time in our nation's history.

"This happened because the media and big government decided they needed food. They needed some story to tell," Glenn explained. "Unless you have people in media who are true to the truth, unless you people in government who are true to the truth, it happens again."

As Glenn worked his way through the collection, it became clear that history is easily manipulated. History is easily changed. But we cannot blame the United States as a country. Instead, it is the American people who are corruptible.

"It was the people that lost their way," Glenn said as he shared the story of Toguri, "not the principles behind the country."

Glenn read an excerpt from a book written by Thomas Edison around the time funding for motion pictures was being sought. In the book, Edison explains the power of motion picture, for he believed with video capturing history in real time nothing could be distorted. Sadly, we have come to realize that this is not the case. And Glenn blames the persistence and foothold of the progressive movement for the manipulation. Edison didn't truly understand the progressive movement or the influence of the media and university system.

Today, we have seen the progressive movement infect both parties. But, as the FreePAC event so wonderfully demonstrated, there is a talented, passionate, and articulate crop of small government, liberty minded Americans who are willing and ready to go to Washington and fight the good fight.

"These are the people we have begged for. These are the men and women we have prayed for. We need to go and convince our friends and our neighbors they are here. We cannot get tired," Glenn said. "Big government is a philosophy in both parties, period. It is antithetical to the American system, period. These are the beginnings of miracles. It requires us to stand. It requires us to get hit."

Glenn concluded his remarks by quoting a passage from the Disneyland Prospectus he won at auction in 2010:

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.

"I challenge you to know what you believe in and then hold fast to it," Glenn said. "I challenge you to know the hard facts, the ideas, the ideals that founded this country. Internalize them, live them, preach them, and send them forth as a source of inspiration to the world."

Throughout the speech Glenn referred back to a theme found in the Gospel of John in which Jesus reveals himself to his disciples and his miracles are discussed. Glenn emphatically stated that if we continue to stand exactly where we are supposed to stand, God will take care of the rest.

"I testify to you today," Glenn declared. "This is the beginning of miracles."

Watch Glenn's speech below:

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
