'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.

    Posted by Glenn Beck on Tuesday, August 18, 2015

    On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

    Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

    Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

    "Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

    ​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

    A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

    But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

    On his TV show Wednesday night, Glenn revealed where Black Lives Matter gets its considerable funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

    Shortly after this program aired, one of the organizations, Thousand Currents, took down their board of directors page, which featured one of these characters.

    Michael Rectenwald, a guest on Glenn's show, pointed out the suspicious change on Twitter.

    Do you recognize your country anymore?

    Me neither.

    Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

    "Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

    In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

    Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

    I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

    You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

    Keep up the good fight and God bless!
