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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
