NAZARENE FUND UPDATE: Glenn calls for prayers as operation of 'saving generations' begins

As thousands of displaced refugees flood Europe from the Middle East and governments struggle to deal with the ever-growing crisis, entire communities of Christians continue to face imminent extermination at the hands of ISIS and other Islamist extremists unless they are rescued.

Thanks to the outpouring of support from thousands of donors responding the the #NeverAgainIsNow campaign, the Nazarene Fund has grown to the point where many of these asylum-seekers can be extracted and settled in new safe haven countries.

Joining Glenn as a guest on his TV show Thursday, Johnnie Moore, who is heading up rescue operations in the Middle East, reported on how things are coming together - quite miraculously, even.

Glenn asked his audience for their prayers going into this next phase, which Moore described as "very sensitive" and "very complicated."

At one point in the conversation, Glenn brought up a disturbing call he'd received from his publisher saying they'd just received a "giant" order of his new book, It IS About Islam from the Middle East. With that said, Glenn asked Moore to talk about some of the dangers he now faces.

"How much danger are you guys in by us just talking about it? I mean, are they aware - really aware of what you're doing and what we're doing over here?" Glenn asked.

Moore responded simply, "Yeah, they are."

He went on.

"Sometimes you do things because they're right. And you try to be smart about it," Moore said. "I believe this is bigger than us. I don't think this was our idea. We couldn't have cooked this up."

JOHNNNIE: Before we started actually having that totally unplanned conversation on this radio show, that birthed this gigantic movement.

GLENN: My gosh, that is how it happened, wasn't it?

JOHNNIE: You know, if we would have sat down and we would have planned this for three months, none of this would have happened. We were just talking. It happens.

GLENN: That's right.

JOHNNIE: You know, we were hoping we would save a few families here and there. You know, we'd do some good. And now we're looking at moving entire communities and saving generations.

GLENN: Okay. Real quick. I want to touch base on one thing. Again, I'm not asking you for a dime. If you want to donate, you can. Now.mercuryone.org. Go to GlennBeck.com. Look for the Nazarene Fund. You can donate if you want. What I am asking you now, until we start moving families -- until I can show to you, here's the fruit of what you've already done. I don't want to -- I don't want to ever ask you to trust me, ever. I want to be able to show you now, here's the fruit of our labor, and then you decide whether it's good or not. But I'm asking you for -- I am asking you for -- for prayers right now, because we're about to go into this next phase.

JOHNNIE: Yeah, we're going to be taking people out within weeks. And we need people to be praying. We have a number of countries that are -- have either decided or will decide in the coming days to take hundreds of people. And this is very, very sensitive. It's very, very complicated. That's why you have to talk about it very, very carefully. And trust me, once we get them out and we tell you the stories, you're going to see why we're so optimistic. There are so many miracles that have happened. I mean, real legitimate miracles again and again. God is with us. That's very, very clear. This should be much, much more difficult than it is. And I don't mean to say it's easy. But it should be much, much more difficult. But now, more than money, we need people to pray that this all works perfectly.

STU: Johnnie, if this is too specific, feel free not to answer. But you're going back and forth to the Middle East all the time. What is your frequent flier status now?

(laughter)

I mean, are you up to executive platinum at this point? I mean, you've got to be --

JOHNNIE: The type of airlines you use to fly into the Middle East don't exactly have the same type of --

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Johnnie, let me ask you this. I got a really disturbing call from my publisher and they said, "Hey, we just got a giant order from the Middle East. A giant order for your new book, It Is About Islam." And they wanted -- I think it's being shipped to Beirut for the Middle East. They're taking all the books there, and then they'll ship it out. How much danger are you guys in by us just talking about it? I mean, are they aware -- really aware of what you're doing and what we're doing over here?

JOHNNIE: Yeah, they are. They are. That's why we talk about it carefully. But the fact is, is that sometimes you do things because they're right. And you try to be smart about it. But I believe we're taking all the precautions we can possibly take. We're being very, very smart about what we're doing. And I believe this is bigger than us. I don't think this was our idea. We couldn't have cooked this up.

GLENN: No.

JOHNNIE: This happened. Here we are, and God's with us. He'll help us. And we'll save generations.

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."
