'This has been a tough year for us' - Glenn reflects on deep structural changes in his company

I just got home after a long day.

A ton of radio interviews, radio and TV show produced, production meetings about 8/28 and a live virtual book signing where I signed 2,000 books.

In the end, I come home tired by uplifted. I saw something in my Mercury staff I haven't seen in a while. Real excitement to be a part of something.

This has been a tough year for us and I think I saw the beginning of a rebirth.

I have changed almost everything at TheBlaze and Mercury in the last 8 months. While you haven't seen it yet, you will soon.

We are not making cosmetic changes but deep structural changes in all that we do. 8/28 in Birmingham is a new beginning for my company as well as myself.

While I was sick the company became a job for many and we drifted into a business instead of a mission. As I got well I began to change things.

This week I began to change the mission statement of Mercury (the parent company of TheBlaze and all things we do). I am basing it off of the Hobby Lobby mission statement.

In order to effectively serve our owners, employees, and customers the Board of Directors is committed to:


  • Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with Biblical principles.
  • Offering our customers an exceptional selection and value.
  • Serving our employees and their families by establishing a work environment and company policies that build character, strengthen individuals, and nurture families.
  • Providing a return on the owners' investment, sharing the Lord's blessings with our employees, and investing in our community.
  • We believe that it is by God's grace and provision that Hobby Lobby has endured. He has been faithful in the past, we trust Him for our future.
  • This is so powerful and when we align everything to our mission statement everything will fall in line. Why can't a news/information and entertainment company dedicate itself to truth like this?

    Today while we had a company meeting on security and we laid out new procedures to keep everyone safe, I saw fear in the eyes of some.

    I do what I do because I am driven by what I believe. Some aren't sure what they believe, some don't believe what I do, and some are at the beginning of their life. Who am I to be cavalier when so many around me are the ones that do the work, fail to reap the rewards that I do and yet are put in tough situations?

    When I spoke to them today, I saw fear at first in some, but I saw something else.

    Kindness, compassion, love, decency and determination.

    I work with the greatest team and they get better everyday.

    I am lucky to work with them. All of them.

    And we are honored to serve you. I do not know what the future holds for me, my company or my country. But I do know it is an honor to be alive at this time when each human has the opportunity to live for something far greater than himself. When each of us will be tested and pushed to the limit. We live in a time that will produce giants that the world will revere and study for generations to come.

    The conflict is real, evil grows unabated, but light, love, courage and truth that we find right now will mold us and shape us for two generations.

    We do not make history, we are made by history.

    Who were you when we met in Washington five years ago on August 28? Who will you be five years from now?

    Thank you all, listener, viewer, reader and coworker alike for a very satisfying day.

    From a darkened home with one light about to snap off, goodnight America.

    I just got home after a long day. A ton of radio interviews, radio and tv show produced, production meetings about...

    How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

    In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

    Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

    "Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

    Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

    "We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

    "Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

    One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

    Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

    Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

    "Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

    "You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

    New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

    Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

    On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

    Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

    As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
