Glenn celebrates Yom Kippur with a story of “courage and human dignity for all the world”

Below is a rough transcript of this segment

There's a little-known story from 1944. A group of Hungarian Jews attached to a German battalion that was retreating in 1944 and it was on this day that they were ordered to clean and dig trenches. They were being used as human mine detectors.

So on the eve of Yom Kippur, the Nazi commander, knowing that this was the holiest day of the year, that this was the day of the fast, this is the day that Moses came down from the mountain and saw what they had done. They were worshiping a God, a false God. And so they had to cleanse themselves and purify themselves. This is the time of the year that the Jews believe that you have to get your house in order for 40 days. You review the year and you look at all the things that you've done wrong and then God sets it right. You atone and then God sets it right and then He charts the next year for you.

I've known the story of Yom Kippur and I know the day of atonement and I love this holiday for the Jewish people. I think this is one of these holidays that we as Christians should not have brushed off. This is really a great holiday.

And I've known this for a long time, but I just had this feeling that this year is different. I have a feeling that we're kind of being locked in to where we are right now. This is kind of the idea behind this holiday, is you're kind of locked in. Wherever you are today, God is making that contract and saying, okay, this is the year. This is where you're going now. And whether you atone or not, you're kind of locked in. So if you are in sync with him, great. If not, you're going to spend the next year with Him trying to reminded you, you've got to get in sync with Me. He's going to bless you one way another. It's just that the blessings kind of suck because they're for your own good, as my mother used to say.

So it's 1944. This German battalion, they're taking all of these Jews and they're using them to search for mines. They're starving. But this Nazi commander knows that they have to fast on this day. And he said, anybody who is fasting is going to be shot.

So on Yom Kippur, it began to rain. They're on the Polish/Slovokian border and they're working and they're looking for mines. They're digging trenches. And they're always starving, but on this day, they choose not to eat. And as they're given their meager rations, the prisoners spill their coffee as they run into the gullies. And they take their bread, which is stale and moldy, and they stuff it into their pockets. Those who had memorized the Yom Kippur prayers said them. And as the sun was setting, and they were preparing to break their fast, they were confronted by the German commander who knew they had fasted. And he said instead of execution, we're going to have some fun, boys.

And he told them to climb a mountain. And then he forced them to slide down the side of this mountain on their stomachs. They were tired. They were soaked. They were emaciated. And they had to climb up and down this mountain 10 times. And their clothing was ripped, their stomachs were ripped. But they lived.

That soggy, muddy Yom Kippur night should be a sign of courage and human dignity for all the world, but most of the world doesn't know about what happened on that hillside. What happened on that hillside because he kept making them go up and telling them to slide down. And they kept doing it. And this German commander realized, I cannot break their will.

I wonder how many of them as they were climbing up that mountain thought of themselves a little bit like Moses. And it made them stronger, as Moses climbed up that hill. And then slid down his mountain to see what was waiting for him at the bottom.

Seeing that he couldn't break their will, he decided he would let them live another day.

Yom Kippur is the day that God decides who's going to live, who's going to die. Who is in His time and who is before His time. We are supposed to atone, ask for forgiveness, clean the slate and start again.

Can you imagine if America, Jewish, Christian, atheist, Muslim, everybody -- if we just this weekend said: You know what, I'm really sorry. I'm sorry for the pain that I've caused. I'm sorry for the things that I have done wrong. I'm sorry for the things that I didn't do that I should have, and I'm sorry for the things I did do that I shouldn't have. I'm sorry that I was just not awake yet. I'm sorry that I'm still not wide enough awake but I'm getting there.

'I'm sorry that I have lied to myself and said that I'm not capable of doing it. I'm sorry that I have blamed other people for my faults, my mistakes. I'm sorry that I tried to shift the blame. I'm sorry that I just didn't have a positive attitude. I'm sorry that I was looking at things and seeing the glass half-empty. I'm sorry I stood by and did nothing while others suffered.

Not another day. Not another day. I may have misread my entire life incorrectly. I may -- this might be the day that I was born again. This might be the day.

And God says, This is the day that you can start all over again. And I will bless you for that. I will take you and write you in the book that matters and this year is going to be your year.

I don't know why I have connected with this story this year more than I usually have. I just love the tradition of it. But this year, I think we are making a contract. I don't know why and I don't even know what that means. Just something in my gut says we're making a contract. Where you are right now spiritually, where you are right now mentally, where you are good or bad, where you are, a contract is being made.

I urge you, as the sun goes down today, and Yom Kippur begins, I urge you, take an inventory of your life. I urge you to take this weekend. It's the holiest weekend of the year for the Jewish people. We all come from the Jewish traditions. Even the Muslims come from -- everybody but atheists -- well, I shouldn't say that, because they just -- they just don't know it yet.

But we all come from the Jewish traditions. This is one worth remembering. This one is worth saying, help us chart a course for the next 12 months, because it's going to be a remarkable 12 months. I don't know what happens, I don't know what comes, but it's going to be a remarkable 12 months. And let me say this to the Jewish people. You are not alone.

I want you to take on this holiest of holy days, on a day when Germany and Angela Merkle has said that they are going to they're going to put guards, troops around every synagogue. Think of that. Troops around every synagogue in Germany. They are worried about the safety of the Jews again in Germany. Later on in the program, I hope to get to a little bit of the essence, the beginnings of never Again. but some of us have said that and some of us actually mean it. Never again.

It doesn't mean that we're not going to go through those horrors again, but this time hopefully there will be more of us that go through it together. More of us that will say, not on my watch. More of us that will actually care about our fellow human being, even though we're different from one another. I would love to see more Christians trying to save the Jews' souls. I'd like to see more Christians try to save their own souls.

By actually standing up for the Rights of people to live and to follow the dictate of their own spirit. Never again.

Israel, know that means exactly what you think it means to millions of non-Jews. You're not alone.

Happy Yom Kippur.

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

THESE TOP 10 Founding Fathers' quotes help us remember America's original vision

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.

We live in a dark time, so it is more important now than ever to make sure you are anchored to the truth.

Glenn was recently on the “Chicks on the Right” podcast for a follow-up interview after Amy Jo Clark and Miriam Weaver joined Glenn on his podcast back in March. The three dove into a lively discussion that touched on several things happening in Glenn's personal life, and Glenn delved into the importance of truth in our increasingly Orwellian society.

Glenn told the “Chicks” about his upcoming first novel for young adults, Chasing Embers, which is set in a dystopian world where the wildest WEF fantasies have come true and history has been completely rewritten. Glenn revealed that he was inspired to write the book while reading Karl Marx. He reflected on how Karl Marx was, and still is in many cases, considered this articulate revolutionary, but when compared to the words of the Founding Fathers, his articulation and arguments pale in comparison. He wanted to explore the idea, "What if Jefferson was the revolutionary again, not Marx?" Chasing Embers asks how we preserve the philosophies of the founders and the values of the Constitution so that our children have a chance to discover it if the world turns completely upside down.

Glenn also discussed how important it is to learn history, to anchor yourself in truth, God, and the Constitution, and our responsibility to preserve them in the face of the dystopian movement that is increasingly encroaching on Western civilization. Glenn described the country as "suicidal" and posited whether we can rein in a nation that is hurdling itself towards the brink. He said we can do our part to help, but unless the country decides it wants to live, it will die. We have to be prepared to endure such a scenario with our morals intact and the necessary knowledge to rebuild on hand.

Towards the end of the conversation, Glenn revealed some of the lessons he's learned in his decades on radio. He said that you have to know yourself--both the good and bad--be ready to defend your beliefs, and admit when you are wrong.
