'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.

    On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

    A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

    In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

    "I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

    We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

    On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

    The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

    But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

    "I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

    Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

    "You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

    Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

    Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

    Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

    "The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

    "He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

    "This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
