Glenn: This is a repudiation of all those who claim we are not exceptional

As Glenn prepares for his trip to the border this weekend, he offered an impassioned monologue about what the immigration crisis says about our nation. For all of those – President Obama included – who try to downplay American exceptionalism and the role of this country as a beacon of hope for the rest of the world, this crisis should serve as a wakeup call.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

America has always been the beacon of hope for the rest of the world. Always. If it weren't so, people would not risk their lives and the lives of their children just to gain a foothold on our solid ground.

Think of this: There are thousands of children that now being sent by loving parents, who have not only put their children on death trains, but some of them have paid up to $7,000 to smuggle their children to the United States of America. That amounts to a year's salary for some of these parents. The fact that is happening should be seen for what it is: A repudiation – a strong repudiation of all those that claim we are not exceptional land and we are not an exceptional country and people.

Think of this. There are mineral-rich lands everywhere. There are beautiful vistas everywhere. But what we have always had is a rule of law based on some fundamental principles that have shaped this nation into what it's always been known for. We are the nation that doesn't leave men behind on the battlefield, or at least we used to. We're the first responders when someone needs aid. Even if it's an enemy on the battlefield, we'll a patch you back up. We led the drive for food in Ethiopia and Haiti. Our dollars, our churches, even the Peace Corps are a beacon of light in the world's darkest and most dangerous places. Even in war, we do not just kill our enemy and go home when the war is over because we always had the Judeo-Christian ethic of hate the sin and not the sinner. We heal the people and their land.

Even when we dealt with the Nazis, some of the worst scum ever to walk or crawl on their bellies on the earth, we didn't drag their bodies through the streets, as some nations do. We found the leaders, and we gave them an open and fair trail for all the world to see. Meanwhile, we airlifted food to the starving Germans, then we helped rebuild their cities. We are an exceptional people. This is what we are. This is what made America great. Perhaps after a decade or more now of war, we have been begun to forget what being good feels like.

Do we even remember September 11th? When we think of those days, the fear and the rage of September 11th, we fail to teach the lessons of that day. But, more importantly, we have completely forgotten the joy, the peace, and the simple kindness to total strangers on 9/12. We stood arm in arm with those who we thought actually were our enemies. We recognized on that day what truly made us American was our brotherhood in a higher purpose. America is great because America is good.

Man, I am really pissed off at everything happening in Washington. It's been happening for years. I am really upset about what's happening on our borders. They are fundamentally transforming the United States of America, and this is something I cautioned while Bush was still in office. I continued to caution we couldn't have two sets of laws, a set of laws for those in power or would be granted special exception, and then another set for others.

I, for one, love immigrants. I believe they renew us, make us stronger through naturalization. Our front door should be made wider by fixing the visa program, so those who want to stay here, those who have a job, those who will make us stronger can stay here. But I also believe, at the same time, we have to close all the windows and the side doors. No country in the world allows this to happen, and no country in the history of the with this kind of a problem has ever survived.

The families down on the borders need to be sent home. And quite honestly, their countries need to be held responsible for it. With that being said, the children – and yes, some of the bad guys that are there, too – instead of shipping them deeper into our nation, we need to gather them together and then we need to gather together and help those American towns and cities that are dealing with this crisis first-hand. The churches are overwhelmed, the public systems are overwhelmed, and our government doesn't seem interested at all in doing anything to make it better. They're just playing politics.

This government believes that with every crisis there's an opportunity to win in politics. I believe every crisis there is an opportunity just beneath the surface. It is not at political opportunity, but rather an American opportunity – one of service and kindness. One that reflects the true meaning of our nation, of what it means to be an American.

My charitable organization, Mercury One, has a goal this week of raising $1 million by this Saturday to help bring shoes and clothing and water and food and teddy bears and soccer balls to these children, who find themselves, through no fault of their own, in the middle of a political hurricane. As of today, we have already raised just over $700,000 from you.These are not corporate donations. These are denotions coming in, nickels, dimes, and dollars. That's a hard road to plow – $1 million coming in in $20 increments. It's even harder when you realize that most of all of my viewers and listeners feel exactly the same way I do: We're pissed off.

Most of us have done everything we can to ensure this wouldn't happen. We asked. We begged. We even marched. We were mocked. We were ridiculed and called racist. My listeners are nothing of the sort. In fact, my listeners and viewers are in a category all by themselves, I believe. They are the people in America that are willing to stand against the wind. They are willing to stand against the tide and be beaten up against the rocks. They will even stand against those who they share political ties with, even if their principles dictate otherwise. These are people who want to be better neighbors. These are people looking for anyone who will put principles over parties to join them with strong backs and strong arms. They are not rich. They are not powerful. They are just Americans. They're people who still believe in doing the right thing. As I said, the average donation is under $20, and many who have nothing left have volunteered their time or volunteered their prayers. They're loving, God-fearing Americans who still believe we are a special place – not because of who is in or who is out of Congress or the White House. But because we are still in charge of our house.

‘We, the people,’ in that big fancy script, doesn't mean anything anymore, I don't think. ‘We the people’ is so overdone. It is almost a joke. But when you get down to it, ‘we the people’ can and do make all the difference in the world. That's what sets us apart. A president or a congress, no matter which side, can't dictate that we need to be good to each other. No one can force you to love your neighbor, and no law called ever change your heart from hate to love. These things come from the free will and the free choice of service and the practice of those higher laws that has always set us apart as a people – those laws of faith, hope and charity.

I would ask: Will you help us change the world? I talked to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)on Friday. Ted Cruz has to speak in Denver. He's trying to find a way to get a plane to get him down to feed the kids, and then back up to Denver to not miss his speaking engagement. When I called him on Friday and spoke to him, he understood exactly what was going on. He sees it the same way I do.

We are going to fight fiercely, but we are also going to be the only ones standing up, bringing food. It's one thing for the president to feed some people. He's not doing it. It's another for those of us who have been called the haters and the racists to go and try to heal and to hold and to feed. How do you explain that? How does the left possibly explain that?

The truth sets us free. Judge us by the fruit of the tree, the fruit of our labors. You talk a good game all up. You could talk about loving people, caring about people, but judge us by the fruit of our tree. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is going to be there. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is going to be there. They all understand we are not allowed to talk about politics.We aren't going to talk about politics. The following Monday, that's when you talk about politics. You go back to Washington and say, ‘I have been there. I'll bring you the stories.’

I'm going to go to places no one's been allowed to go into. It's amazing what happens when you bring a quarter of a million dollars worth of shoes to children. The doors that opens. I'll bring my camera. I will show you what I see, and I will tell you the stories that I have seen –good and bad. But we will love first, then we will argue about policy.

Just maybe we'll have a better seat at the table. Maybe we'll be the ones to call everybody to the table because we are the ones that will know the situation. We'll be the ones who ever actually provided actual compassion – not compassion through tax dollars. I don't know about you, but on April 15th, I have never felt compassionate. I have never felt charitable. But when I actually reach in and do it myself, that's when my heart changes, and that's when the world changes.

If you would like to support us, you can go to MercuryOne.org. You can click on the Children and Family Border Relief Fund. If you don't want to give to that, you can give for the VA. We are also raising money to help our veterans. We are also helping Israel. You can help support the people who are being bombed now in Israel. You can help us build schools and help us build hospitals here in America. You choose. But we'd sure love your help and your support. Go to MercuryOne.org.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
