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.

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.
