Glenn's test results 'better than expected' following 'miraculous' visit to Mayo Clinic

I could not let another day go by without thanking you for prayers and a loving Father in Heaven for answering them.

As you know, I took off a month over the summer. Thank God, I feel good and my voice is strong. With an abundance of caution though, I decided to go to some of the best in the field to just look at all of me.

For too long I have had symptoms, they come and go, but they are never gone. I thought last year things were gone for good but no such luck.

Thankfully, with your prayers, all turned out as good as hoped and better than expected.

I spent a long few days at the Mayo Clinic.

This place is a miracle and it was incredible to watch them work.

Brilliant people and so very kind - from the doctors, nurses, administrative to the security staff. All beyond professional staking out the territory of truly kind caregivers and scientists.

Each doctor on the team, I believe there were 8 doctors involved, knew my case, did their homework and came prepared to help and heal.

I have never seen anything like it.

I asked the one of the nurses, "I am being treated like a king, but what is it like for the average person?" I am not sure she understood the question but her reply was simple: "just like you."

I was so happy to hear that.

I was told, but did not verify, that they can process 5,000 patients a day.

At the end of my stay, I speculated to the head of the medical team assigned to me that if I had taken this on my own and just gone from doctor to doctor like usual, it would have taken me about a year to complete this work and all of these tests. He felt it may have taken a bit longer. Wow. What a blessing.

The insurance company is raising the rates again on my company's "Cadillac insurance" and the government thinks it too good so they are fining (taxing) the company (me) for providing this health care for my employees, but thank God I do.

Yes, I can afford this on my own but my employees couldn't and I believe they deserve the same care, treatment and opportunity as my family does. It is a core principle for me. None of us are worth less in God's eyes. I believe that insurance is the last thing we cut. I was the one who needed it this time.

I would hope that companies understand the value of providing this kind of health care and employees understand the strain it puts on the employer but it is worth it when you need it. My only hope is that we can get the government out of this before they destroy truly remarkable medicine and the general public's access to it.

I wanted to thank all of the doctors and nurses that helped us through this last week.

I grew up hearing about the Mayo Clinic. They have quite a reputation to live up to, they need to know that they surpassed everything we even thought a hospital and great health care could be.

If you or a loved one need answers this IS the place to go.

They found new, well-founded and dynamic answers for me.

Not a surprise that presidents, prime ministers and kings from around the world come to them for help.

The doctors were gifted, kind, steady and empathetic. They were beyond thorough. We all got on the plane late Friday night with a truly grateful heart.

As an aside, they say my vocal chords look better than they did a few months ago after my break. What is more important, they believe they now know what is causing that and everything else that is going on. Finally a universal answer that is provable on scans. The doctor that found it, "had a hunch". An answered prayer.

We have started new treatment and are praying for miraculous and lasting results over the next few months.

I need to thank you and all that prayed last week without even knowing why.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you. We could feel them and they were answered. And thank you to Mary and all of the wonderful people at the Mayo Clinic for making an exhausting week one to be written about in our family journals as a very positive experience.

From Dallas, Goodnight America.

I could not let another day go by without thanking you for prayers and a loving Father in heaven for answering them.As...

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."
