There are over 40,000 preachers ready to stand against the government

Yesterday, Glenn announced the next phase of the movement that began at Restoring Honor. If you remember, Glenn ended that event with close to 300 faith leaders joining arm-in-arm as a new Black Robe Regiment. Since that day, the Black Robe Regiment has been quietly working and growing in the background, but now they are ready to stand and take action. David Barton has been a key organizational force in that group, and joined Glenn on radio to give an update on what they are doing next.

"Black Robe Regiment is what the British called the American pastors in the American Revolution. Because pastors back then -- black pastors, white pastors, Catholic and Protestant all wore black robes. And the British blamed the American Revolution on the pastors. On that Black Robe Regiment. Literally, they said that had it not been for those pastors, America would still be a happy British colony," David said.

David then told the story of how George Whitfield, a preacher, was influential in both American politics and the military.

"When we had the Stamp Act that really kind of started the whole process of moving toward the Revolution, when it came time to protest the Stamp Act in London, America sent two people to London to protest the Stamp Act. One was Ben Franklin, the other was George Whitfield. So there's a guy very involved in politics. Then when it comes time -- Whitfield is one of the first to tell the Americans, if you want to preserve your freedoms, you'll have to separate and become independent. Whitfield is the guy credited with starting the American military, the first military flag, and the first military motto. So when he died in 1770, which was the end of the Great Awakening, at his death, he was buried at a church in Newbury Port, Massachusetts. When George Washington sent the first expedition out to start the American Revolution, it was to Quebec in 1775. That expedition going out of Massachusetts stopped at the church at Newbury Port, where Whitfield was buried. They went inside. They had a sermon. After the sermon, they lifted the top the sepulcher, and the soldiers all reached in and cut off a piece of Whitfield's robe to take with them into battle. Because he's the father of the military. Now, how many preachers today would be accused of being the father of the military or are arguing economic policy in front of parliament or starting the military. That's the Black Robe Regiment back then."

Today, David says the Black Robed Regiment has grown to 40,000 preachers. These are men with character and backbone, who are standing up for Biblical principles and freedom of conscience.

"It's not only the time, but we're now seeing people respond," David said. "We're seeing pastors respond in a way we haven't seen. We have seen in the last few days, 40,000 pastors sign a petition that says, I will go to jail before I follow what the Supreme Court says if they get marriage wrong. They can do what they want to. 40,000 pastors, including one pastor with a 35,000-member church. And those are usually the guys that don't have the backbone, is the guys with the megachurches. We will not comprise on this. We will go to jail on this. But we're standing for the biblical definition of marriage."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
