Caller: Beck fans are the most amazing people out there

This morning on radio, Glenn took the opportunity to brag about what an amazing audience you all are. He brought up Facebook, and how so many people would be lifted by our remarkable audience. You.

Glenn said:

I've always had a deep profound respect for our audience. I've always felt -- I say this all the time in business meetings and everything else. People don't understand what our audience is. They really don't. They think that -- somehow or another, what's the secret to your success, like we did something. It's not. It's the audience. I do believe that you're a beacon. Everybody is a beacon. You attract what you put off. And so we generally put off, you know, we believe in a better world and we believe that we can be better than we are and we believe in -- in, you know, make it yourself and stand out your own two feet and question with boldness. And so that's who we're surrounded by. We're surrounded by good, charitable individuals.

Following his praise of the audience, Andy from Massachusetts called into the show. Andy asked Glenn to pray for him as he has been dealing with "some personal demons." In answer to his simple request, Andy was flooded with responses from all of you on Facebook, encouraging him, offering prayers, and saying you were all there for him.

Immediatley after Andy's call, Chris from Montana called in, revealing some personal issues he is also currently struggling through. While Glenn was able to point Chris towards the apostle Paul in the Bible, his true strength will come from all of you sending thoughts and prayers his way.

Listen to these heartwarming calls below:

GLENN: Let me go to Andy in Massachusetts. Hello, you're on the Glenn Beck Program.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn.

GLENN: Hey.

CALLER: I wanted to comment on your Facebook post. I heard you talking about it. Last night I actually commented on that post. And I've been going through a lot. I struggle with some personal demons, so I asked you simply to just pray for me. I know sometimes you comment. Sometimes you don't. Occasionally you do. When I woke up this morning, there were over 110 responses from random people who I don't even know who said that they would pray for me and God was there for me and that's such a humbling thing. Beck fans are the most amazing people out there.

GLENN: Can I you something that's why I said to Pat you should read my Facebook posts. It's not just the posts. It's the comments. We all have trolls, but my fans are getting better at just not responding to them but if they do respond to them it's with love and once that happens, it doesn't happen anymore. They just move on. But the responses from the fans, and the intersection with the fans. Facebook was up in our office in New York talking about our fans. And the way we're interacting with our fans. And they said that there's no one using Facebook the way we're using Facebook right now. And there's nobody that is interacting with their fans the way that we're interacting. And I will tell you that just in the last couple of months, the Facebook experience has changed. You know, just over the last summer, it was -- you know, it was typical. It was typical. It had -- but now people are starting to care for one another. They're starting -- it's an amazing community. And Andy, you're exactly right. And I bet -- did I comment on yours this morning?

CALLER: You didn't but I think you liked it. It was almost -- there was like 250 likes on that comment. I think that you did like it.

GLENN: There was a couple of people that I liked and I couple that I stopped and commented on. That were saying the same thing. Hey, I need some prayers and everything else. And I saw the number of responses on some of these. And it's so heartening. You're exactly right, Andy. This audience will -- once you get into that community, you realize you're not alone. It's -- it's honestly, it's the secret to our summer events. Why they're so important. And it is the secret to -- you know, when -- for instance, with dough this book signing tonight or tomorrow night, it's kind of that same kind of feeling. We get together and you just -- you're just in a room and you're -- the closest I can explain is when you go to Disneyland. And you just -- you know how you get your guard down and you're like, I'm safe and you know that nothing bad is going to be lurking around the corner, unless it's Jeffy. You know, it's just kind of that feeling of I am around a bunch of people that know that the world doesn't have to be like this. And it is so great. Andy, we'll keep you in our prayers. Thank you so much. Let me go to Chris in Montana. You're on.

CALLER: Glenn, first of all, I'd like to say I've been a fan of yours since were you funny.

(laughing).

PAT: Holy cow.

GLENN: Been that long?

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: It's been that long.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: Sorry, Chris.

CALLER: I would really like to thank you. Last week I found out my wife -- we've been having our problems. We've had a really bad year. We have lost three dear members of our family. Two of them was in the same week. In February. It's been a tough year on our marriage. We've been trying to go to counseling. We've been separated since right before Thanksgiving. And last week I found out she was having an affair. And it wasn't a sexual affair but it was an emotional affair. And she had the man in my house. And I'm a truck driver and I've gone five days a week and she told my kids to keep it a secret. And I have to believe there was no sexual anything with that. And I don't think there was. But I'm like, you know what, this isn't worth it anymore. And you know, I've been really looking and thinking about the pivot point that you made, the comment. And this is my pivot point. And I've been on a destructive behavior this whole year. I've been drinking a lot and I don't know where God is or anything. And I was raised Catholic. So anyways, I picked up -- I've been going to the counseling and I'm like, I'm done with that, too. And the counselor said keep the work book and the other day my mind was going a thousand miles an hour. And I picked up the work book and my mind calmed down. And I wanted to keep with the counseling. And I'm like, how do I find God. Well, I was Catholic, so I called a priest. I meet with my counselor tomorrow at 11:00, with a priest at 1:00 p.m. and I'm going today also. And I want to thank you for that.

GLENN: Good for you.

CALLER: You're an amazing person, Glenn. I thank you for everything you've done for all of us. And that's all I really wanted to say.

GLENN: Chris, you just hold on, brother. God exists. And you'll find him. If you turn over every stone and -- if I can just -- if I could make the suggestion, I have fallen in love with Paul, the apostle. Read Paul. Start at Acts and just read Paul. He's such an amazing guy. And every answer that you need is right there. But you'll find God. And He does exist and I'm telling you, you know, I wrote to somebody the other day that if you just -- if you just make a promise to yourself to do no more damage, just I'm not going to fix it. I'm not going to do any more damage and I'm going to go to bed tonight. I'm going to make it through the day. And I'm just not going to do any more damage, and I'm going to keep my integrity. I promise you, you're reaping the seeds that you may have sown even unbeknownst to you. You're reaping the things that you have sown. There's a new harvest. Till all of that ground. Just turn it all over. Now plant new seeds. You're going to be planting a while and it's going to take a while for the season to change. But it will sprout new plants and I'm telling you, if you sow seeds of honor and integrity and decency and kindness and love and charity and forgiveness, I promise you, that that harvest is going to come in and you will not believe -- you will not believe that you are the farmer of that field. I've been there. I know. God bless you. Thank you, Chris.

CALLER: Thank you, Glenn. I love you, man.

GLENN: I love you, too. Thank you very much.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
