Original story below:

Glenn broadcasted Friday’s radio program from Liberty University in Virginia because he was invited to speak the school’s convocation. He admitted he had written and re-written his speech several times over the last couple of days, and he ultimately decided to bring along a few historical artifacts from his collection to illustrate how times are changing.

“I got up this morning, and I thought, ‘Who am I to speak today,’” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But as I got here last night – and I brought a whole bunch of stuff to share with them – I kind of changed the direction this morning… But it is really pretty much the same conversation that I had with my daughter yesterday at lunch… I told her, you know, the seasons are changing, and we just have to know who we are. And we have to know who we serve. And we have to know who has the answers. And it's not the guys in the long robes.”

Glenn took that stage around 10:30am ET, and his radio program and TheBlaze TV carried a portion of the address. While video of the full speech will be available on GlennBeck.com later Friday afternoon, below is a highlight:

To begin, Glenn explained that Friday’s graduates are “entering a time unlike anything America or the world as ever seen. While the possibilities are truly endless, it will be more necessary than ever to enter the world firmly rooted in principle.

“The times are changing, and if we are going to rebuild our nation and keep people free, then we have to look at the source… And the more political answers that we try to find, the more lost in darkness we become. The more we try to find the answers through science, through technology, the more lost we become,” Glenn told the crowd. “The answers are quiet, the answers are simple. And the answers are here. I brought some things with me that I want to show you.”

Two of the things Glenn brought with him were the personal Bibles of King Louie XV of France and King George III of England. Both books were in pristine condition – as though they had never been opened.

“If you look through this, it is absolutely perfect. I don't think the pages were ever turned,” Glenn said. “What do your scriptures look like? Will someday somebody say, ‘This was my this is my sister's scriptures. Look, they are in perfect condition,’ or will they have been pored over, dog-eared, written in? That tells the story of your life and your path. This is what freed the world. And this came at a great price.”

The graduates at Liberty University today are entering a less than perfect world, and Glenn encouraged the young men and women gathered in the room to be prepared.

“I am asking you: What is it that you believe? Are you willing to give your life? It's real. This is not a textbook. Your classes are over. Life is about to begin. And it's real. What are you willing to do? What is it that means something to you,” Glenn asked. “Expect miracles in your lifetime. Live in such a way that you can demand miracles, expect miracles, call down miracles. And then when they happen, pronounce them, declare them, never be shy. No matter how small or how big, don't explain it away. That is the awesome power of Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
