Glenn's powerful letter to his daughter Hannah

Back in 2010, Glenn was asked to give the commencement address to Liberty University. Looking to his journal for inspiration, he found a letter he wrote his daughter Hannah on her first day of college.

My daughter just started her first year in college and as I was flying here today, I didn’t feel like I had anything to share with you that you hadn’t already learned here. I took out my journal and looked up the things that I wrote to my daughter as she was sitting there listening to one of her professors on her first day as a Freshman.These are the things that I wrote to tell my daughter:

You are never alone and there is never trouble that is beyond help. Your father loves you and your Heavenly Father loves you.

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow may never come, but as long as we have today, it’s never too late.

Question with boldness. Read what they tell you not to. Challenge everything. The educated of this time are growing arrogant, and arrogance leads to darkness.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant. However, sanitizer is a must, especially in New York City. In New York City, honey, it’s best both times just not to touch.

Look for the exits. They may save your life.

Respect others. Know that they are most likely afraid, just like you. In fact, I found more arrogant and forceful they become, the more afraid they are.

The worst thing in life you can do is dishonor yourself or your family and then go living a life without setting it right.

Marry for love, marry for laughs, but most importantly, as my wife Tania taught me, marry with God. For without God, life’s storms are too strong to withstand.

Wealth and fame are an illusion. We’ve been rich, we’ve been poor. We’ve been happy both times. The only times I’ve truly been miserable is when I was lying to myself or to others.

Alcohol and drugs make life easier for a very short time and then they destroy. There is no experience that is bad. Experience just is. It’s what you do with that experience, how you’ll use it. Will it shape your life for the better and help you become a stronger person? Or will you allow those experiences to smother and destroy you? Call 911 first and then call your dad.

Always have a picture on your desk of someone you admire.

Don’t let life wash over you wave after wave. You’re not a rock. Learn from the waves. Learn from the currents. Choose to sail.

"I am that I am" is the most powerful phrase in any language, as it is the name of God. Never use it in vain. Use it to create who you want to be. I am, blank. But know if you don’t fill that blank in, someone else will. You can ignore it, but if you do, it will be filled in by others or just life. There will always be many that will try to fill that blank in but only you can fill it in and be happy.

The Lord lives and He is personal. He loves you, and he’s always there to help. But we have to train ourselves to hear it. We have to use our faith and exercise it like a muscle. The more we use faith, the louder he becomes. Serve Him in all things. Stand where He asks you to stand. Stand, for you do have a purpose. Your job is just to remember who you are, remember what you agreed upon. We’re meant to be happy. But remember, no pain, no gain. Life is hard and then it gets harder. And then you die. But every single second of life is worth it.

Always say what you mean and mean what you say. Turn the other cheek and always forgive. But don’t forget so much that you put yourself in the same situation.

Question authority, including everything that I’ve just told you. Make these things true because you know them to be true.

You have everything you need. You have everything you need to be happy. May you figure that out before I did.

People are good. They want to do the right thing. Give them the opportunity.

Shadows are darkest at noon, and it always gets colder before sunrise.

It’s never wrong to do the right thing.

Learn to love others that you don’t know or really don’t like.

Read the scriptures every day. They are alive, and He speaks to you through them.

There are no coincidences in life.

Learn, laugh, love. Sleep hard and sleep less. Pray on your knees. To whom much is given, much is required. You’ve been given the world and beyond.

Only date those who love you as much as I do. Only date those who will treat you as I have tried.

Never want anything too much. You’ll always end up paying too high of a price one way or another.

If you must shoot, shoot to kill.

Labels are meaningless.

Someone you meet today is afraid or suffering. Find them. Comfort them.

Never let the sun go down without saying you’re sorry for your wrongs.

Your dad misses you. Call him. Call him now. What? Why haven’t you called him yet?

Life goes by far too fast. Keep a journal. Write what you think; write what you question; write what you know.

There is order in all things. Stay in that order. Stay in the flow.

You will find very few real friends in life. Cherish them. Things will change and you’ll fall in and out of each other’s lives, but when you do come back, it will be as if you never left.

The hardest thing to do is to admit failure, to admit weakness. Only the very strong do. The weak never ask for help.

Fasting is prayer. Fasting without prayer is a diet.

And why? Why haven’t you called your father yet?

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
