'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.

    There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

    "My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

    There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

    Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

    It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

    On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

    In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

    On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

    For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
