'Notice and act': Glenn's deeply personal thoughts on love

Tonight, I was going to take my lovely wife out to Billy Bob's for her birthday. It is really all that she wanted as a gift. Time, dancing with her two left footed husband.

We were getting ready to go in when something came up that forced us to leave.

We met this nice couple at the door who was going in to buy tickets. I stopped them and offered our tickets to them.

He recognized me right away but didn't say anything, just smiled and nodded. I nodded back and smiled.

When he offered to buy the tickets we refused. I told him to pay the tickets forward to someone else and began to walk away. As we did, he apparently told his wife who came running up behind me and said, "I just want to hug you please."

It was so nice. Later on the way home we stopped for some gas, I went in and there was a man and his son. They were from out of town. Again, so kind.

Then I met a man who came across the store and said, "I am from Australia. I have a two hour train ride and I listen to your podcasts. Lately, you are the only thing that gives me hope."

With such joy in his eyes, he shook my hand and looked almost through me and said: "thank you."

I cannot tell you how uplifting it was to hear. Especially tonight.

We may never meet, but I believe the spirit speaks to all of us in our lives.

Because I am a known person, yet most strangers to me, people will say what is on there mind and it more often than not it is something that helps me and on many occasions is an answer to a prayer or plea to my Father in Heaven.

I urge you to act and speak through your "promptings" or "feelings" (however you describe that moment when you know you should act or speak out).

You never know, but that little bit of human connection may be the only positive connection that person has made that day.

You are the answer to someone's prayer right now. Who is on your mind to call, write, reach out.

Maybe you are lying next to them reading this. Maybe they are upstairs all tucked in. Kiss them and tell them: the truth; I love you; I am sorry; I need you; thank you or whatever it is that you should not let pass another second.

Call them tomorrow. Just tell them! "I meant to call and then things spiraled out of control and then time passed and now I feel weird about it." They will understand. They have been there.

It might be a stranger or someone you don't know well that you will see at church. Maybe, like with me tonight, it is just someone standing in line at the gas station.

Perhaps it is someone that lives alone or at work that just really needs to talk to someone that cares. It doesn't have to be deep or take much time. It just has to be real.

If we are going to fix our country and world, we need to fix ourselves first. It will take acts of epic courage in the end.

Let's begin to strengthen that muscle today.

Say the things that are on your heart.

Turn to that person in line at the store and express the feeling that you are being given.

Let's not just notice people, let's really see them and then notice and act on how we "feel" and on what we hear from the spirit.

I am always turned off by us Christians, even in my own church and me included! We all want to get people baptized. I get it. I want to share what I have found as well. It changed my life. But we spend so much time trying to figure out ways to talk to people about Christ.

Why don't we figure out how to just LOVE EACH OTHER? No motive or hidden agenda.

If I could master anything in life it would be this: To truly love people, the first time I meet them. To have such compassion for others that I would want to really listen to them and see what is happening in their life good and bad. To be able to do that without fear! Wow! What a world we would experience.

I doubt I will ever "master" that but I think the first course in Love 101, just might be to notice and act.

I am greatly blessed that so many feel they know me. In many ways we do know each other. Perhaps we do "know each other" more than any other "celebrity" and "fan" group out there. Maybe it is because we share so much in places like Facebook.

Please always remember, to God, everyone is a VIP and our head and hearts are His Facebook. "Share" His comments when you know He just "liked" someone.

Thank you to all those who answered my prayers tonight.

From Dallas,

where the greatest woman I know is laying next to me because long ago she noticed me and then had the courage to to turn around, come back a few steps, shake my hand and say "thanks for all the laughs on the radio,"

Goodnight America.

Tonight, I was going to take my lovely wife out to Billy Bobs for her birthday. It is really all that she wanted as a...

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."
