Why is Glenn going to Birmingham on 8/28?

Glenn opened the doors to a studio audience on last night’s TV show, and he shared a story about why he is headed to Birmingham that he hasn’t told on air yet. How did he end up going to Birmingham on the five year anniversary of Restoring Honor? It’s a much deeper than story than you probably expect - and nothing about it is a coincidence.

Tickets for this event are now available here.

Below is a transcript of this story:

I’ll tell you a quick story. For about five years, I’ve known what I’m now beginning, not wanted to do it, argued all the way—you’ve got the wrong guy, all of it. He doesn’t listen to me. At one point probably a year ago, probably last summer, I knew what we were going to be doing. It was like heavy on me.

I said to Him finally, you’ve got the wrong guy. I don’t have the resources to do this. I don’t have the connections to do this. I’m a stupid TV guy. That’s what I do. You’ve got the wrong guy. You know what he said to me? Because we have kind of a contentious relationship. He said to me—in all due respect, this is literally what I heard: Sit down and shut up. I’m like well, that’s not helpful. I don’t know how that helps because I know you have me doing these things, but I can’t put them together because I don’t have any of the resources.

You’re showing me things, and then you’re not giving me the ability to—shut up and sit down. There are others. Okay, so where are the other people? So, a year ago, shut up and sit down. This preacher comes, and I’m speaking. He’s from Birmingham, Alabama. I know I’m starting this event. I don’t know where to start it. I don’t know what’s going on, but I know it’s going to be big.

This preacher is sitting there. I don’t know he’s a preacher, don’t know anything about him. He’s about the fifth row back. He’s about where you are. I’m talking, and I’m doing this whole thing. I keep looking at him. And God is like you’ve got to talk to him. By the end, I think I’m doing all the whole speech just to him, okay? God wouldn’t leave me alone. Everybody leaves. He’s gone. There’s about 500 people. I said to one of the guys on my staff, “There was a guy in about the fifth row.” He said, “Right, the African-American guy?” I said, “Did you feel something too?” He’s like, “Oh my gosh, yeah.”

I said, “God is telling me I’ve got to talk to him.” I go out, we find him, and I said to him I don’t know what we’re supposed to meet for, but we’re supposed to talk. Now, this happens to be the preacher, the bishop at this church, this black gospel church in Birmingham, Alabama. He said it’s funny because God told me I was supposed to write you a letter last Monday. He said I didn’t know I was coming here, so I wrote you a letter because I’m supposed to do something with you, but I don’t what it is. I said well pastor, the only thing I know is I’m starting this thing.

At that time we both just kind of sat back, and he said I’m willing to do it. I said ooh boy, having me in a black church in Birmingham, Alabama, that’s not going to be popular. He said God sure tells me that’s what should be done. I said well, me too. If you’re in, I’m in. Now, I don’t have all the resources, God.

Now, I say yes to him, and I immediately think that’s a 1,600-seat church. There’s only 1,600 seats. I say this on the air, do you know how many people are going to come, God? You know how many people are going to come? Sixteen hundred, much more than that. He calls me up the next day, and he said Glenn, the mayor has called. The city has called. They’re thinking now about possibly just giving you the stadium because so many calls are coming in.

They’ve already talked about blocking the streets, because I’m thinking to myself, I see in my mind what God has planned, there’s a march, and there’s a march in Birmingham, Alabama, but I don’t have any of those resources to do that. All of a sudden, they’re talking now about possibly blocking off the streets in case you want to do a march. Oh, and there’s 22 acres over here where people can gather, and you can do something on this 22 acres. I didn’t have any of the ability.

So, what I would say to you is we have to unite. We have to re—read Acts 2. We have to unite, be of one heart, of one mind, know exactly who we are, and then sit down and shut up because the Lord is going to use each of us in His own way at His time.

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences


  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.


  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.


  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
