'They edited the heart out of it': Glenn dismayed with how CNN handled his interview with Don Lemon

I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to Republican talking heads.

If this is what they think Republican voters are I am so glad that I have NOTHING to do with the GOP.

Does the media even begin to understand that for most conservatives, Obama is yesterday's news? We got it! I believe we are MUCH more offended by Boehner and McConnell and the rest of the GOP establishment.

We expect to disagree with the progressive left. But we have been betrayed and lied to by "our own."

Over that, I, for one, am D O N E with all of them. We are never going to fix our nation by starting with D.C.

Maybe it is because I just spent the day in media and politician hell, but I really am so frustrated by everyone who just keeps bringing it back to what politician X or Y did.

I just saw my appearance on CNN. I recorded it earlier today. They edited the heart out of it. I wish they would have left the real conversation - the meaningful conversation Don and I had.

Nope. They left in the stupid Palin "dog" question and left out my reaching out and begging, pleading and making a real case that those questions and comments are a waste of our nation's time.

We need to stop empowering these political games. Who in the media will be brave enough to have an entirely new conversation?

I wish CNN would post online the unedited interview, because Don and I, who don't agree on very much politically, made real progress as people. Even if it was for just five minutes.

Why doesn't someone dial test something entirely new? Honesty. Truth. Decency. Compassion.

I have just wasted 40 minutes of my day watching the news.

People are dying, 8-year-old girls are being raped right now, homosexuals are being beaten and stoned to death and men and boys are being beheaded and their moms sold into slavery.

I am done with this. If I can't fix my own radio show and get my own show to begin to take action of healing, help and decency then I need to go away myself.

I don't know how much more I can do and fail.

This isn't about anyone else but me. Maybe I need to leave the media and public life and just walk the walk in my own neighborhood and life.

Each of us are going to be held responsible for our own actions and our friends, family and everything that is meaningful is on fire and we are engaging in a clown show or an angry venting.

Both are important, but I just can't do it anymore.

Ben Franklin said around 1773 that he could no longer be with friends anymore. Because most failed to understand the gravity of what was really happening in the world.

He felt almost dirty by talking about normal things. I feel the same way.

God is going to make me account for every moment of air-time, every word and every action I chose to put my effort behind.

I am not the man I need to be.

These times require a Lincoln, Gandhi, Mandela or King.

I don't know if they exist or if any of them would even be listened to today. We have sold our principles for power in our parties. We have lost the ability to reason and we certainly don't even begin to engage in a real and authentic conversation.

I am sorry to be a downer. But it is the truth of how I feel tonight.

Tomorrow, I am going to share the speech I didn't finish at the Capitol today - because we only can stand 10 minutes per speaker. I will ask if CNN will allow me to play the unedited interview (that makes Don Lemon real and really likable). But we couldn't play that because we only have 8 minutes and we have to talk about the latest stupid thing someone has said.

America can listen or not. But maybe sooner rather than later, you and I will just gather under some new "liberty tree" and have real conversations and take real and meaningful action.

No one will cover it... But the best part is:

NONE OF US WILL CARE.

From Orlando, where one man did change the world, but people are working harder than ever to tear him down 50 years after his death.

Good night America.

God lives and He will set things right with or without us.

PS: I am turning off my iPad without proof reading this. So sorry if it doesn't make complete sense, but you get the gist.

I am watching Don Lemon on CNN. They are talking to republican talking heads.If this is what they think republicans...

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
