Glenn is going to the border...

On Tuesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn delivered a monologue further explaining his stance on the immigration crisis. Glenn made it clear that amnesty is not an option and the government must work swiftly to handle the “border crisis.” Meanwhile, it is time for the American people to step in and begin correcting the “humanitarian crisis.”

Glenn announced he will be visiting the border town of McAllen, Texas on Saturday, July 19. He will be joined by politicians like Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and faith leaders as Mercury One begins to distribute the goods and services it has accumulated through donations to its Children and Family Border Relief Fund.

Over the last several days and weeks, Glenn has read countless emails and social media comments from fans who both support and oppose the position he has taken on this issue. On radio this morning, Glenn shared details about his upcoming trip to the border and sought to further clarify why he believes “there is no justice without mercy.”

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

We announced yesterday that I'm going to go down to the border a week from Saturday. And we have been asked if we would provide aid to the churches that are actually standing and bearing the brunt of what is happening on our border. This is Cloward and Piven. They're trying to collapse the system. We can't allow the system to collapse. We have to dig in and do all that we can while we stand and fight against illegal immigration. While we stand and say, ‘These people must be returned home,’ we must have compassion and not allow the system to collapse.

I am being joined by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) and Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) a week from Saturday, and if you think those guys are soft on illegal immigration or soft on the Constitution, you might want to check yourself before you wreck yourself. I announced this yesterday on television, and we saw people change their position – not everybody – but a lot of the people who had written just two, three weeks ago who said they'll never watch or listen; they're going to cancel their subscription; they're definitely going to stop helping Mercury One help people; those people wrote to us and said, ‘I have been thinking about this. I've been praying about this. I have been watching what's going on. And I do not agree with illegal immigration.’ Neither do I. ‘But we have to be human first, and take care of human needs and don't let the system collapse.’ The way we will lose is by appearing to be something that we're not, by appearing to be hateful people that don't care about children. That's how you lose. Guarantee it.

Do you know how we lost the gay marriage thing? Because we made it about homosexuality. I don't hate homosexuals. If you are in love with another person, and you want to get married, okay. But don't force me to perform the marriage. Don't force me or my church to accept you into the fold. There are other churches that will. That's my right to freedom of conscience. Your right to freedom of conscience is you want to get married. Great. Why is the government in the marriage business in the first place? Control. Power. To be able to use this to separate one another.

I am for legal immigration reform. The system does not work. But we've got to change. Nobody is going to listen to you if they think they're a hatemonger. They're not going to listen to you. You're going to lose this again. So, what can we do? Pick up our personal responsibility with malice toward none and charity toward all and go and serve.

Now, I'm going down to the border in McAllen, Texas, next Saturday. I am also going to the border at night with Louie Gohmert. Louie is going to help us unload these trucks. Louie is going to be there along with some of the pastors. Some of these pastors disagree with us. Some of these pastors are all for illegal immigration. What we're doing is not political. Because I can tell you Louie Gohmert is not for illegal immigration. Ted Cruz is not for illegal immigration. Mike Lee is not for illegal immigration. We are all for the rule of law.

But our first responsibility is take care of one another. And we can do that together. And as we do that, believe me, we will be having conversations with people. We will be having conversations and they will probably be the first conversations where we're not yelling at each other. Why? Because everybody unloading those buses will know we love people. We don't hate people. So we're starting at a different place. ‘Look, you care about the children just as much as I do. By the way, can anybody tell me at the HuffPo how many truckloads of food they've raised? Can anybody tell me any liberal talk show host – how much money you have raised? Can you tell me, anybody, anybody, who has gone down there and actually unloaded the buses or the trucks, the semi-tractor trailers, how many have you fed? How many of the liberal talk show hosts on MSNBC have gone and actually had a breakfast and a lunch where they served these people?’

I will tell you that next Saturday, I'm going to be doing that. And I invite everyone else to put your time – not your money –where your heart is. My heart is with anyone who is suffering. My brain is with the law. The law must be enforced. My heart is where I have mercy. And there is no justice without mercy. You have to have both of them. And right now, the conservatives only look like they just want judgment, and the liberals only look at it as mercy. You cannot have a rule of law if it is nothing but mercy. You cannot have justice without mercy. You need both. So why don't we lead the way? Why don't we do both? Why don't we demand real justice by being the first to stand up? Let us lead the way with mercy and duty and sacrifice and honor and integrity. And we will humble ourselves. We will swallow or pride. We will do the right thing even though it really kind of rubs us wrong because we shouldn't have to be doing this if you would have obeyed the law in the first place. But we voted these people in.

Please don't tell me, ‘Well, I didn't vote these people in.’ Really? Because I see the results of Congress. I see what John McCain did. I see what George W. Bush did on the border. So don't tell me we didn't do this. All of us have been involved.

I would like to ask you if you'd like to join me. This is not going to be a path for the sunshine patriot. It's not. I will tell you, you're going to make enemies on both sides now. I've already done that. I have already been called a traitor to the Constitution, a traitor to the republic. You name it, I've been called it. So now I am not popular on the right or the left. So be it.

I said last night, my fans are mocking me on Facebook and that's okay. Believe me, I went into this one wide open. I know exactly where I'm going. I know exactly who I am, and I know exactly what the consequences of that could be. And that's fine. But what I said on TV last night is: I've said a lot of controversial things. I've asked you to do a lot of crazy things. People will say all the time to me, ‘Glenn, you know what? You were right on so many things.’ ‘My gosh, I can't believe your track record.’ ‘You know, I thought you were crazy on the collapse of the economy in 2008, and you turned out to be right on that one.’ ‘I thought you were crazy about Cloward Piven, and then I started seeing stuff.’ ‘I thought you were crazy on the Progressives.’ ‘I thought you were crazy on what happened in Egypt.’ ‘I thought you were crazy that there could be a caliphate.’

I’m not talking about the border. I am talking about the human condition. I am talking about our heart, and I have never been more right on anything in my life than I am on our heart. If we close our heart, if we don't do the hard work right now – and I mean it's going to be hard. You're gonna do things and you're gonna stand with people you don't want to stand with. Nothing worthwhile comes easy. Hard times make us, to quote JFK. We don't do these things because they're easy. We do them because they are hard, because they're right. I've never been more right on anything ever in my life, and if it means I do it alone, then I will do it alone.

But I ask you to join me because I know who you are. I know who you are. It's why I love you so much. It's why I love this audience so much. It's why I have so much respect for you. You are unlike any other audience. You really are. You are not the typical talk radio audience. You are not the typical television audience. You are so atypical. I wish there was some verifiable way I could prove it to you. There is no other audience in the history of mass communication like this audience. Period.

I have said this to you since September 11th – and this does not come from me, this comes from my gut, from the prompting, whatever you want to call it – you are going to be responsible for a great change. You are going to be the ones that save the nation. And if I have to be out in the middle of a field all by myself with 10 people saying: Love one another. Be better than everyone else. Do the hard thing. Be kind. Be gentle. I know the world wants you to hate. I know the world is teeming with hatred. It's teeming with darkness. Shun it. Be good. Be a beacon of light and hope. Be the flame on the Statue of Liberty that the whole world looks to and says, ‘I want to go that way.’ You will be the shining city on the hill. I don't know what that city looks like in the end. But that's what we're supposed to build. And the eyes of the world will be upon us. They already are. Let's show them who we really are. Let's prove the world wrong.

If you'd like to make a donation and join me, you can make a donation at MercuryOne.org. If you can't make a donation, because you can't afford one, just pray for us. If you don't want to make a donation, please accept my hand as your friend, and I hope someday you'll be able to join us.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
