Does total commitment require boycotts?

I am sickened by our silence on Planned Parenthood and almost everything else.

Webster defines total commitment as the alignment of one's motives, resources, priorities and goals to accomplish a mission or to accomplish a specific task, or to follow a person.

How many goals, missions, tasks or people are we actually in total commitment to?

I would wager that most Americans aren't even in total commitment to their spouse.

When I tour with our AMERICAN History Museum, I show a document written to George Washington in the middle of the night after a crucial battle in the Revolutionary War. It was written by General Anthony Wayne and out of its four lines, one haunted me for quite sometime after I first read it.

"Your men (on the battlefield) behaved like men who are determined to be free."

That is total commitment.

I am so disturbed by Planned Parenthood selling body parts that I have lost sleep. I cannot imagine living the way these monstrously cold people do.

Chopping children up and then selling the parts. Read that line again.

They are chopping babies up and selling their parts.

What other time in American history would we have stood by quietly or expressing our 'outrage' in the same way and tones we express our opinion about a bad movie.

Are we at all disturbed?

When it first came out, many, if not most expressed shock but then what did we do?

Do you know why the progressive left is winning and fundamentally transforming the nation?

Total commitment.

They have worked toward this goal for over 100 years. In the 1980s, groups like the Tides Foundation set goals and went all in. They have massed huge amounts of resources, placed people in the boardrooms of America's largest and most influential corporations. They control our universities and schools. They boycott any one who stands against them.

They work as a group and are totally committed to a secular nation that has very little to do with our founders or our founding ideas and documents.

Apparently their vision has very little to do with life that they don't approve of. Remember it was this week that General W. Clark called for interment camps for radical Americans.

If a person on the left was exposed like William Ayersin the 1970s or 80s, others took him in and rehabilitated him and his image so his work and influence could continue.

Martin Luther King and Gandhi were very clear. Non violent resistance does not work without boycotts. I know this to be true.

No one is afraid of you or your cute little belief. They know you won't do anything about it. Most of us profess belief but never put it into action. It's too hard.

It is why are churches are empty. They don't stand for anything. They never put belief into action.

Talk is cheap.

Do you know why Hollywood continues to insult you, entire news divisions leave you out at best or mock and ridicule your position and people rush to post rainbows with their company logo when the position is highly controversial?

Because you will not boycott. They know you will not stop buying, watching or using what they make.

Moreover, because we like to be for things and not against, we will never organize. Because we are capitalist, our millionaires and billionaires want a return on their investment. If it doesn't return something directly to them, they are not interested.

Fortune and sacred honor? There is no honor and lives mean next to nothing. ISIS is selling 9 year old girls into sexual slavery.

Nothing but fortune is left.

Money doesn't talk it screams!

When you finally choke off your support and do so in an organized and loud fashion, you will stop things like Planned Parenthood's abortion mill. But until we do, things will continue to get worse.

What is it you actually believe?

I believe all lives matter. I am totally committed to that cause.

When will the large majority of Christians stand for something, ANYTHING, and mean it.

We are 70% Christian as a nation.

How could we be funding this with our tax dollars? How can we be using these products?

Maybe Christianity in America is nothing more than something you say you are and then you go to service on Christmas. It's the least we can do.

How can we stand by while life is being destroyed and sold like scrap parts. While children are being sold into slavery?

This is obscene and evil.

I have never been for boycotts. But I also have never been in the minority opinion before. I have news for Christian AMERICA:

You are a stranger in your own land. You are no longer in charge.

We have effectively lost our second citizenship by remaining quiet and refusing to stand with the tactics of men like Gandhi and King. It makes us uncomfortable. Too much of a hassle or maybe we just don't like to cause trouble. Have you listened to the words that used to stir us? "In liberating strife." Strife is part of growth.

"Who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life."

What is it you stand for, because I no longer recognize my country and I don't think anyone else knows what it stands for either. Except perhaps a growing evil.

I refuse to lose my first citizenship in His kingdom.

The time to stand is now.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
