WATCH: It’s time to take control of your own life

It’s time to stop accepting the world the way it is and to start fighting for something different - and much, much better. That was the message Glenn shared this morning on radio during a passionate call for people to break free of their comfort zone and to start fighting for what they really want and believe in. Why are we still trusting the systems that have been around for twenty or thirty years to be they key to the future? It’s not going to work. Listen to Glenn’s message HERE and start changing thing now!

Below is a rush transcript of this segment:

GLENN: I have to tell you, and I want to share this with you, I want to share this with you, because I want you to empower yourself. I want you to find out what it is in your own life and empower yourself.

We are in the age of a renaissance. Everything is about to change in a very good way. And it could go dicey. I mean, I think it will. It's going to go dicey. The world will come unhinged for a while. But if we hold on to each other, we'll be okay.

But we have a choice. We can either make things good and right and better and empower ourselves.

Do you realize that the bushmen in some place in Africa, as long as they have access to a smartphone in the middle of a bush, they have access to more power and information than President Clinton did in 1986. Your smartphone, what the hell are you doing with it? What are we doing with it?

Now, I want to tell you, I just said to the floor crew, I have been trying to find somebody that would listen to me about a redesign of a camera and a whole camera system. This studio, I own a stupid movie studio, and all the technology put in here was put in the '80s, and we're still putting the same crap technology in this building because that's what everybody makes.

I know what the future is. And it ain't this. And for how long, Stu? Five years, four years? I've talked to Canon. I've talked to --

PAT: You've been on this camera kick for a long time. I think it's six years.

GLENN: I've talked to everybody. I talked to the head of equipment at Warner Brothers, and I explained this idea. And he was like, that's really good. Now, do you know how do that? Yeah, I'm not going to do that because that would probably put me out of work. That sounds good.

PAT: I'd rather buy the 80,000-dollar camera that doesn't work as well. Why don't we just keep doing that?

GLENN: Yeah, we'll just keep spending money like it's crazy. So I just said -- and this is the mind-set that I want you to have. I've talked to all kinds of people. All the people I've talked to are either experts with no money or people with money and no expertise. And I can't get those two together. I can't get those two together. And I just know what the future is.

So I just said to the floor people, you know, these guys are creative. They're creative. They know what it is. I mean, who owns the jib? It ain't me. Who owns the jib?

CRM. Okay, a lot of times individuals own these big pieces of equipment. These pieces of equipment were made by guys -- I think steady cam thing was made by a guy in a hotel room.

STU: That was Rocky. One of the first uses of it was Rocky because they did it in Philadelphia, by the way. The whole reason that's tied to Philadelphia because they wanted to get around the unions.

GLENN: Isn't that crazy?

STU: That's how innovations happen.

GLENN: Exactly. That's how innovation happens. And what we've become is a consumer nation. Wait for somebody to make something, and then I'll buy it. And I know someone will make something better, and I'll buy that. And I'm just waiting for the next thing that's better. What are we waiting for? That's not America.

America is the one that says: I don't have to do it that way. I want to get around the unions. I want to get around this. I want to go around the price. It doesn't make sense to me. So I just said to the guys, you know what, let's redesign it ourselves and put it up on Kickstarter. I don't know how much it will cost us to do it. I don't have the money to do it. So let's just build one, and then we'll put it up on Kickstarter. Because I think it will revolutionize television. What are we waiting for? That's the key. What are you waiting for? What is it in your life that drives you?

Everything, look, everything is about passion. It's about intelligence and passion. As I tell the staff here, somebody is like, well, I'd really like to try this. Okay, what are you waiting for? Well, I just wanted to see if you bought into it and, you know, if you would help me get some people -- no, I'm not going to help you. I'm working on stuff I can't get done. And the things I can't get done usually tell me because it's not quite right because I can't convince enough people that it's right or I don't have the right team around me to see that vision. So then I have to keep working on it. You have to go out and convince two or three people. And with your passion and your intelligence, you go out and you convince two or three people. And you get them to buy into the -- the -- what you're trying to do. And then you do it together.

And then, you don't go to some VC. Some venture capitalist or anything else. You don't have to do that. Put it on Kickstarter. Here's an idea. I think this would revolutionize -- Pat and I were talking about this. This is how crazy the world is getting right now.

Do you realize that right now if you could come up with a tricorder. Now, this is somebody -- a Star Trek fan. A tricorder. This is a tricorder prize. Okay?

STU: I don't know what a tricorder is.

GLENN: Okay. Tricorder is when Bones, the doctor in Star Trek back in the 1960s, he had this little device that he would hold up. And it would be like, [sirens].

PAT: It would tell him exactly what what's wrong with you.

GLENN: He's an alien with a head cold.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Total future stuff. You know, like --

PAT: In Star Trek 4, he held it up to somebody in a hospital, and he realized they had kidney failure and he gave them a pill and it corrected their problem.

GLENN: Okay. So that's what it is. You don't have to be a doctor. Just turn the tricorder on. And you're like, oh, he has kidney failure.

So the guys who did SpaceX are now doing with Qualcomm, a 20 million-dollar prize for the tricorder. Why are they doing it? America is going to be about 20 million doctors short. Who would see that coming? I don't know who said that. I'm sorry. That's another monologue. We'll be about 20 million doctors short by 2020, 2025. That will cause a real problem. So what do we do? Well, you come up with things like a tricorder. And you don't give it to doctors. You make it available for parents. 3 o'clock in the morning, my kid is sick. Oh, he has a head cold. Oh, he has kidney failure. Okay, that one I have to have checked.

This one -- and it's all -- it is artificial intelligence, which will only get stronger. It's cloud-based. So all the information, you can cough on it. These are some of the specks they're looking for. Cough on it, it will analyze the spittle. You can prick your finger on it, and it will give you a blood test. It has to be linked to artificial intelligence and to the cloud and give you a diagnosis.

PAT: Wow. Do we know if someone is close to that?

GLENN: You ready for this? It's a $20 million X prize through Qualcomm and SpaceX people. A $20 million Qualcomm prize. They've had it out now for a couple of years. They're down now to the 15 finalists and expect to have a working one in 18 months.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Wow.

PAT: That's a bigger prize than they're giving to somebody going to space.

GLENN: That was 10 million.

PAT: Wow. Wow.

GLENN: What are we doing?

PAT: That's huge.

STU: If you point one of those things at Jeffy, it explodes.

PAT: Oh, my gosh. It can't compute all the various diseases on there.

JEFFY: Actually I'm a good test case for a few million.

PAT: Yeah. You might be. Syphilous. Gonorrhea.

GLENN: What's amazing to me is, this is the world we're living in. And why are we not taking -- we're the entrepreneurs. We're the ones who believe in the future. Right?

We're not the ones sitting, waiting for a handout. We're not the ones saying, oh, let somebody else do it. We're the ones out marching in the streets. We're the ones going way out of our comfort zone. I'm telling you, Pat and I were talking about something this morning. About going way, way out of our comfort zone. Way out of our comfort zone. We have to. All of us have to go way out of our comfort zone.

Let me ask you this question: What is it that you have done in the last four weeks, 60 days, what have you done in the last eight weeks that has made you really uncomfortable?

Have you done anything? If you haven't, you're not growing.

Let me say that again: Have you done something in the last 60 days that has made you way uncomfortable? And if you haven't, you're not growing.

STU: If you're no good at being uncomfortable, then you can't stop staying exactly the same. Right?

GLENN: What?

STU: If you're no good at being uncomfortable, then you can't stop saying exactly the same?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Fiona Apple suspect she beat you to the punch. Multiple years ago, she beat you -- this little monologue you're going on --

GLENN: I'd give good money to Fiona Apple to beat you in the face.

STU: She would probably do it with pleasure.

GLENN: I know you were in front of her. We were in front row and you were afraid.

STU: I do love her. But I was in the front row many times, but I don't think -- I don't think she -- she probably has no idea --

GLENN: No. She has no idea. No, you were just a random person that she could get up from the piano and just beat. Oh, yeah, no, not for any real reason. Just because she might attack someone in the audience.

STU: She's that awesome. Yes, that could definitely happen.

GLENN: You describe that as awesome?

STU: I do. With her? Yes.

GLENN: She is awesome.

STU: She is. But, you know, that's a great point. And I remember hearing that song years ago and thinking, that's a great point. If you don't put yourself into that place where you're doing things that make you feel that way, you're just living the same day over and over again.

GLENN: Okay. So one of my favorite lines from Muse, and I'll butcher it because it's been a long time since I've heard it. Is, I had a nightmare that everybody loved me for who I am. Crap. Now, I can't remember the last part of the line.

I had a nightmare that everybody loved me for who I am. I'm going to have to look it up. I don't want to butcher the last part of it. But basically it is, and so I wasn't the man I could be.

If everybody loves you for who you are, you're not going to push yourself to be the best man you can be.

STU: Yeah. This is kind of -- we're going through references, and I pray Pat has a good one coming.

GLENN: Oh, Pat has a solid one coming. It's going to be something like from Paul Revere and the radars. He's already gone.

STU: There's a line, it was -- the meanest thing you can ever say to someone is good job. It was in that movie, Whiplash. The drumming movie. Of course, this guy is a psychopath in the movie. You don't necessarily want to replicate his behavior. But when you think about that, it's so central to the way humans react to things. If you can sit there and be rewarded for your behavior over and over again, then, of course, you'll never change.

You know, it's -- it's very typical.

PAT: Although, some people are motivated pretty strongly by positive reinforcement and feedback.

STU: Yeah, that's why I wouldn't go as far. He was actually a pretty bad guy in the movie. But I think the point is there.

PAT: Did he get the kid where he needed to go?

STU: I don't want to give away the movie. He drums well.

PAT: Spoiler alert. Okay.

GLENN: Here it is. I've had recurring nightmares that I was loved for who I am and missed the opportunity to be a better man. Isn't that great?

PAT: Yeah, it's good.

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
