Glenn: You cannot remain silent. One way or another, you will be counted.

Remember when Glenn said that Valerie Jarrett's family had an FBI file? He was called a hate monger, a conspiracy theorist, and a racist. It turns out he was right, but the progressives don’t even care. The radical pasts are being whitewashed, the country fundamentally transformed. It may feel like it’s too late, but you must take a stand. Glenn believes this audience will play a role in saving the country, and the time to unite is now.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors.

GLENN: Years ago, we told you the story of Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett. We told you how they came together. We told you that Barack Obama, everybody in his family had an FBI file. And everybody in Valerie Jarrett's family had an FBI file. We were called hatemongers. We were called racists.

PAT: Conspiracy theorists.

GLENN: All these kinds of names. It has now been verified --

PAT: Yeah, but just by the FBI.

GLENN: Yeah, just by the FBI, that Valerie Jarrett's family -- her father, her grandfather, and father-in-law all had an active FBI file because they were hard-core communists.

PAT: Under investigation by the US government.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

PAT: Her dad, pathologist and geneticist, James Bowman, extensive ties to communist associations and individuals, according to his lengthy FBI file.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

PAT: In 1950, he was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman Was also a member of a communist sympathizing group called the Association of Interns and Medical Students.

He moved to Iran to work, according to the FBI. And we all know that.

Also, her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, also another big-time Chicago communist, he's the one that had all the association with Frank Marshall Davis, right? Who was Obama's --

GLENN: Uh-huh. Communist friend and mentor.

PAT: -- community friend and mentor.

GLENN: Uh-huh. So we have -- we have all of this. Now it doesn't matter. We have been tainted as conspiracy theorists. They have been white-washed. They're communists.

And, you know, you cannot -- again, I'd like to hear the turnaround story of the president. Okay. So you have communists in your life. Okay, you grew up with a mom and dad that hated America. Grandparents that hated America. Frank Marshall Davis, who is -- is really one of the spookiest guys you'll ever meet.

And that's knowing that Jeremiah Wright is down the line. You have all these people. Tell me your turning point. Because you could have a turning point. You could have all these people in your life. You could grow up hating America and then you could go, you know what, I was wrong about all of that. He's never had a turning point. Nobody's ever asked him. Same thing with Valerie Jarrett.

So what does this mean? Nothing at this point. Nothing. Nothing. Except the people that are leading you in Washington do not view this country the same way. The fundamental transformation of America is something that has been planned for decades. Decades.

It started with Woodrow Wilson. It was -- it was picked up by radicals in the 1950s and 1960s. Communist radicals. Those communist radicals had children, and they are currently in power. This is why the government of the United States makes no sense to most Americans.

It's why we're violating our Constitution. Because they do not recognize that Constitution as something sacred as we do.

I want to talk to you here. And I want you to listen to me. And maybe only 10 percent of this audience will hear this.

But it's that 10 percent I'm counting on. I have told you from the very beginning that I've had a feeling, probably starting in 2005 or 2006, I've had a feeling, this audience is going to play a role in the saving of this republic. Now, I don't know how it's saved. I can't tell you how it's saved.

We passed all the exits. I begged America to get off all the exits. We passed them all. Next stop: Cliff.

The bottom of the canyon. I don't know how we save it. Maybe we save it in remnants in pieces. Maybe our children hold it in their hearts. I don't know. Maybe we turn things around so dramatically, that we do save it intact as it is.

But I felt that for a very long time. I have told you that I have had promptings. And if you don't believe in promptings, that's fine. Whatever. I believe that God speaks to all of us. All of us. He's speaking to you.

But it's all hands on deck. And I've said for a long time, I don't even know how to do any of that stuff, and it doesn't make any sense.

And I know that what we're supposed to do is things like we did last Friday. It's why we're kicking things off in Birmingham, Alabama. I think Birmingham, Alabama is going to be a place that restarts the country. It's known for all of the bad things that happened in the '50s. I think Birmingham, Alabama, is going to be known for all of the good things that happen here on out, just like Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is forever going to be known for its good people, and I think Birmingham is going to be next on that list.

The South will rise again, and this time it will save the country, not divide the country.

But I've told you for a while, and many people have not understood. And I'm begging you now to try to understand. I'm begging you now to take your life and your time seriously now. Far more seriously than you've ever taken anything before. I am -- I am issuing a call. Please, please, I beg of you, this is far more serious now than anything when we started the Tea Parties or anything else. This is it.

The gay marriage ruling is about to happen. We told you last hour what that means. You could lose your job. The world will change. Now, the other one won't happen overnight. But your First Amendment right is going to go away. Possibly your job. My job.

And the world also will change overnight if we have a massive terror attack. If Greece collapses, I don't know how that happens, but that's the beginning domino of what sets the European theater on fire.

At some point, the last domino falls, and we've got nothing. We have to be men and women of character. We have to stand.

You know, there's a symbol now that is being spray-painted over in the Middle East, and it basically looks like a U with a dot over the center of the U. Do you know what that means?

They spray paint it -- they're now spray painting it on doorways. A U with a dot over it. That means Nazarene. That means somebody who worships the Nazarene is in this house. That means, if you're spray-painted, that means they're coming to kill you and your family and burn down that house.

That's what's happening in the world. These guys are so sick over in the Middle East, they have now built cages and put GoPro cameras on the cages. And they're putting them down and sinking them with people in it in the pools. They're drowning them and then watching them. And putting them online. They have now taken explosive cord and wrapped it around eight people's necks and blown their heads off.

Evil has been unleashed.

Last night, I posted on Facebook, I posted that I was going to be speaking at a church here locally. And it's a megachurch. This is a big church. It's a great church.

Ed Young is the pastor there. Good man. They do a lot of really great stuff. People started posting: Wait a minute. You're a Mormon. You can't talk there. I would never go to a church if a Mormon was talking. Then somebody else started posting: Well, that's a megachurch. Don't ever walk into megachurches, because those megachurches, they're in it only for the money.

Somebody else posted: Well, it's you Christians -- what are you? Crazy? Are we insane? Have we lost all perspective? Do we not know what time it is?

We better come together. We better come together for reconciliation and not winning. Just reconciliation. Put our differences aside. Love over revenge. Charity over restitution. Hope over fear. Courage over apathy and cowardice.

If I were to be hit by a bus today, I could at least go to my grave saying, I did my best to prepare this audience. I did my best. I didn't know how to do it any better.

There's a reason we're all together. There's a reason you're listening now.

I think we're still a little early. We still have time to prepare. But my gut says the world is going to catch up. It's going to catch up to us before we're ready and before we want it to. But I still tell you and I believe this, this is the audience that can and will change the course of history. We can bend the arc of history towards justice and reconciliation and love. Away from hate. Away from discord.

Charleston changed the course. There are many that want to bend the arc of history towards hate and violence and race wars and civil war and destruction.

Those who want to stoke the fires of hatred, they lost! Because people stood together. People of all different color. Of all different faith. From all over the world. They stood in Charleston.

And so what happened? The people who wanted to stoke hate, they didn't know what to do. They didn't know how to deal with you.

Darkness does not understand the light. And so they went for something else that could divide us: The Confederate flag. Let's go there. Well, Governor Haley disrupted their plan.

Because, really, is a flag -- even the American flag -- I'm sorry, even the American flag -- it's the principles. It's not the symbol. And there are far too many important things -- when you looked at that, I don't care what side of that argument you were on, when you looked at that, did you not say, really?

This is what's -- this is the problem? The flag, that's the problem? That's going to solve our issues?

No.

But this is what they do. They are not honest brokers, and they want to discourage you, and they want to break you. They need the bottom to rise up and cry out: Somebody do something! Because they are prepared to do something. They are prepared to squash the violence.

We must stand in the gap. That's our job. To stand in the gap where no one else will stand because they're too afraid. Courage is contagious.

It begins with raising your hand right now and saying, never again is right now. We said this insanity would not take place again. Not while I was on alive. Raise your hand and be counted because I warn you, you will be counted. Silence in the face of silence is itself evil. Silence in the face of evil is in itself evil.

You cannot remain silent. You will be counted.

Do something. Stand together.

I will be counted. I'm thinking about spray painting on my own house the symbol of the Nazarene. If that's what makes me a target, so be it. Target me first.

We must love all men. How Hillary Clinton can be getting the hate that she is getting online right now from the left because she said in a black church, all lives matter, and they are saying to her, no, they don't. It is black lives that matter!

You know what side is right. It is not black lives. It is not white lives. It is not blue lives. It is not unborn lives. It's not old lives. Young lives. Special lives. Rich lives. Poor lives. It's all lives matter!

Life is what sets us apart. We are a people of life! Other cultures are a culture of death. We are of life!

All lives matter.

Get your hotel room and join me 8/28 and 8/29 at Birmingham, Alabama. It's time we stand. Get your church to come. Get a bus organized and come. And it's time for all of us to stand together, and then leave that place with new friends and so when there is a -- when there is something that happens like it did in Charleston, we don't have to put out a call. We're already there. We're standing in the gap. When Ferguson happens, we're already there. When Baltimore happens, we're in the gap.

We stand. We say, enough! We say there are true eternal principles, and we will follow them, even to the jailhouses, even to the death, because I worship the Nazarene.

Never again is now. If you'd like to contribute, you can do it at mercuryone.org. If you'd like to join us, more details coming up. But get your hotel room, 8/28 and 8/29, in Birmingham, Alabama.

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.
