'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.

    How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

    On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

    Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

    Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

    On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

    "Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

    Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

    On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

    Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

    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."
