'We have people on the ground' - Glenn explains why he has to be cryptic about the Nazarene Fund

On radio Monday, Glenn gave an update on what the U.S. now wants to do with refugees from ISIS and from Syria.

"John Kerry has come out and said, 'we're going to take 200,000 refugees.' Well, here's the problem with this. We don't want refugees," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to break down the difference between refugees and those seeking asylum.

"Refugees connotate a group of people that are going to go back home once the conflict is over," Glenn said. "The Muslim world can take care of the refugees."

Glenn explained there's a huge difference between refugees who will be accepted back into their countries and those who are marked for death and have nowhere to go.

"What we are looking for are people who are seeking asylum," Glenn said.

Glenn told listeners the Nazarene Fund to rescue Christians seeking asylum has raised over $7.5 million and people are now on the ground in the Middle East, working to secure their release. And while Glenn is typically pretty open about the details of his ventures, he said he won't be able to share very much during the next several weeks to protect those involved.

"I have to be cryptic, but I have to tell you the main thing I'm going to ask you for is prayer," Glenn said.

I don't have the latest number. But it's probably about $7.5 million that we have raised here in the last three and a half weeks. And I've never seen anything like this. Every dollar, so, you know, every dollar of the Nazarene Fund goes to help free those Christians in the Middle East. And I do emphasize that for a reason. The president has now come out and said -- John Kerry has come out and said, "We're going to take 200,000 refugees." Well, here's the problem with this. We don't want refugees.

Saudi Arabia has more than enough room. Jordan has enough room for refugees. Europe and the United States and the western world does not need Muslim refugees. There is enough room in Muslim countries, let them do their five pillars with their own people.

Refugees connotate a group of people that are going to go back home once the conflict is over. These people are not coming home. Now, how do we vet them? Well, let me tell you. You know how you get on a list for a refugee to come to the United States? You have to go to our embassy or our consulate, and you have to be put on a list. Well, who is doing the vetting there? Who is putting the people on the list? Well, in those countries, we hire Muslims to do that. So how many Muslims are coming in compared to how many Christians are coming in? If you're a Christian -- the number one we complaint we get from talking to the Christians over there is, "We can't get into the United States because there's no Christians that work at the embassies that will even listen to us. We're second-class citizens."

So you don't want refugees. You want those who are seeking asylum. There is a huge difference. And what is happening is, we are being told, "You know, you don't want any of these people anymore." Yes, you do. You want those who are seeking asylum. The Muslim world can take care of the refugees because we have seen how refugees in the Muslim world are used. And eventually nobody wants them. And they are going to create a Palestinian state in our own country and in Europe. It will be the same thing. The refugees never go home. Ask Jordan. There is no solution there.

They are used by Islamists to change the course of countries. What we are looking for are people who are seeking asylum.

Now, we have raised about seven and a half million dollars in the last three weeks. And because I am who I am and because I also overshare, because I am transparent, like it or not, sometimes in all the wrong ways I am transparent, I am -- I've put people in danger. Our own people. And we have -- also, because I am who I am and we're vocal -- and, you know, It Is About Islam, is being sold in the Middle East. The book.

When I got a call from the publisher and they said, "We just received a rather large order for your book in Arabic in the Middle East." Like, "That's not going to be good, is it, for my travel over -- anywhere in that?" No.

I'm going to ask you for a favor. I am -- I'm not going to talk about this for the next few weeks. I'm going to kind of just not talk about it. Because we have people on the ground. And I'm not going to give you anymore information than that. We have people now that are trying to get out, but if they are known that they're trying to get out with us, it puts everybody in danger.

And so what I'm asking you for is just a pause on information for a while. And let our proof be in the pudding. There are some things that are happening around the world because everything is changing so rapidly. You know, I think what's really a good thing is these countries over in Europe, they -- they were saying, "You know, we're not going to take any asylum seekers. We're not going to take anybody." But now when they have this group of, you know, 400,000 20-somethings, men who are coming over that are Muslim and you can't tell the difference between the Muslim and the Islamist and Europe is freaking out, they look like haters. They won't take anybody.

So what a lot of these countries are now starting to think and consider and do is, they are -- they are trying -- we are -- they are -- they are -- people are trying to convince them that it would be in their best interest to not look like haters and turn everybody away. It might be in their best interest to look and vet in an organized fashion a large number of Christians and bring the large number of Christians into their nation and let the Arab world deal with the Muslims because they're best equipped to know who the good ones are and who the bad ones are. We're best equipped to know who the good Christians are and who the bad Christians are. And we are looking at levels of presidents and prime ministers at this moment trying to get countries all around the world to take them.

And you are leading the world. When I say that, I mean that sincerely. You are leading the world in this effort. And so we will have more to report here in the coming weeks. But I said that we were going to make some dramatic moves by Christmas, and I believe we are going to do that and maybe more before Christmas. And I'll give you more details as I can. But I would just ask for this: More than money, more than anything else, pray, please. Pray for those people who are on the ground trying to get them out. Those who need to get out. And those leaders of countries, including our own to see the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker. And see the wisdom in taking asylum seekers.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."
