Silence in the Face of Evil Is Evil Itself

Hello, America, from Las Vegas, Nevada.

I got up this morning, and I prayed about what I was going to say to you today. Because I have a lot on my mind. And I thought to myself, "Maybe I, maybe I don't say anything."

You know, it's really interesting. I've had an interesting 15 years. And for the life of me, I can't figure it out. I know my talent didn't get me here. I am quite possibly the worst talk show host on radio. My talent didn't get me here. My talent got me to where I was in the 1990s, and that was pretty much nowhere.

But I was on the air in WABC in New York. So the first talk show broadcast I ever did. Clinton had just bombed the aspirin factory, and Stu was my producer at the time. And I had spent the day reading the words of Osama Bin Laden because that was the target, according to Clinton. That was the target of that aspirin factory. Because he said, "Osama Bin Laden is a very dangerous man." And I didn't trust Clinton at all. And so I looked up this Osama bin Laden. I couldn't even pronounce his name. You know me with names.

I think I called him "Bean La Dean." I don't know how I even said it. It was embarrassing. But the point was, nobody was saying his name.

America really hadn't heard his name. And I spent the day reading his words. And I got on the air, and I said, "This guy is a danger. Clinton was right."

And I was accused by Republicans of trying to make the poll numbers of Bill Clinton go up by saying that. I said, "Look, you don't even know me. I'm not a fan of Bill Clinton at all. You don't know me. I want to talk to you about the facts of Osama Bin Laden." Nobody wanted to talk about the facts. They wanted to make it about politics. They just wanted that guy out.

And in frustration, after taking many phone calls, all of them accusing me of just trying to help Clinton, I snapped. And I said, "Mark my words, there will be blood, bodies and buildings in the streets of this city, New York City, within the next ten years. And the signature on those deaths will be Osama Bin Laden. Will you then care about terrorism?"

I forgot I even said that until I heard the name Osama Bin Laden about September 13th. And I looked at Stu and I said, "Oh, my gosh."

In 2004 --- late 2003 and 2004, I started talking internally and then started talking a little bit on the air because I wasn't sure, and I was afraid honestly. I was afraid of you.

I started saying on the air, "I don't, there's something wrong with the GOP. There's something wrong with the Bush administration. We're not going to be able to continue down this road. They're betraying all of the principles that we hold."

I was a big supporter of George Bush. I wasn't in 2000. But 2001 changed my mind. He got up there with a bullhorn, and all of a sudden I found myself "rah-rah. The Patriot Act. Rah-rah. Let's go kick some ass."

By 2004, the rah-rah had worn off, and I started to see what they were doing. By 2006, I saw what was happening on the border. And I had guest after guest after guest after guest on, all of them GOP, and I said, "Do you realize what's happening? Do you realize --- are you hearing, are you feeling the people out here? Because you have to change your ways because something is happening in America that I've never seen before. I can feel it." Very few understood what I was talking about.

2004, I start talking about a housing crisis, a banking crisis. By 2007, I'm ringing the bell so much, I'm losing radio stations. They're saying, "Glenn, you sound crazy." I'm on CNN. Just weeks before the crash, I have a guy on the air and he's talking about the Dow going to 33,000. In the middle of this interview, this expert that was on, beloved, everybody thought he was a genius, in the middle of the interview, I stopped and I looked right at the camera and I said, "Whatever you do, do not listen to this guy. We have a better chance in the next year of going to 5,000 than 33,000. Don't listen to this man." It didn't go well for the rest of the interview.

But more people listened to him than listened to me.

I'm putting together this crazy trip over to Israel. And I'm hearing in my prayers, "You have to announce this Monday." And I'm like, "I don't even know what I'm supposed to do."

"You have to announce it this Monday."

I fly over. Miracles happen. Open up --- we're the first Christians to ever speak at the Western Wall, ever, since Roman times. The mayor of Jerusalem is shocked. The rabbi of all of the holy places tells me he's shocked that the Lord told him, "Yes, let this Christians speak." It was a miracle. I didn't even know what was supposed to happen. I still don't know why we did it. I had to --- I had to announce it on Monday. I don't know why.

Friday, following after that Monday, Friday, Barack Obama comes out and asks for the Auschwitz lines to be reinstated, the 1968 borders. I get it.

I come back, and all I can think of was Restore Love. Restore Honor, that was in Washington, D.C. Then Restore Courage. That was in Israel. And as soon as that's done, Restore Love.

I didn't realize at the time all I was doing was faith, hope and charity. Where does honor come from? Where does courage come from? Where does love come from? How do you put them into practice? Honor, courage, love.

And nobody wants to hear me talk about Martin Luther King. Not a damn person. Nobody wants to hear me talk about Gandhi. Not a damn person.

Every time I talk about Gandhi, I hear from Christians, "Why don't you talk about Jesus." Every time I talk about Jesus, "Why are you talking about Jesus?" Every time I talk about Martin Luther King, "Why are you talking about that communist?"

Nobody wants to hear that. Nobody.

But I do as I'm told. (See, I told you he had Zionist masters.) Well, if you consider the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob my master, you'd be right. And I say we must not allow hatred to conquer our hearts.

At the time, internally, I'm telling people, "I don't even know why we're saying this. We're not Martin Luther King. We're not Gandhi. We're a million miles away from that kind of anger. There's no real oppression happening."

You most likely were saying the same thing. The same time . . . I read the words of the people in the Middle East. And the people in Washington were all saying this is a wonderful revolution in the Middle East. The Arab Spring. It's a new era. It's Jeffersonian. I read the words of the people in the Middle East. It felt an awful lot like 1999.

And I say the Muslim Brotherhood is not a peaceful organization. The people in Washington like Grover Norquist that have brought the Muslim Brotherhood into our society, have brought some of the worst people into our government, into the highest levels, into the Oval Office. They should not be held up on a pedestal. They should be shunned. They shouldn't be on the board of directors of CPAC. Grover Norquist should not be at CPAC. Grover Norquist should not be on the board of directors of the NRA. We'll find out if anybody listens to that. They're trying to pull him off the board of directors of the NRA now with a recall vote. Do you belong to the NRA? You have until this weekend to vote. Your ballot is in the magazine. It's already come out. You have to have it in by March 1st. That's Tuesday.

I talk about the caliphate. Nobody wants to listen to the caliphate. I'm mocked by the right. I'm mocked by the left. I'm mocked by the media. Nobody wants to hear it.

I didn't get here by my talent. I know what I'm capable of. Why does God give you a voice if you can't do anything about it? Why does God tell you what is coming when you can't do anything about it?

I got up this morning, and I thought, "What am I going to say to people?" Tuesday is your last chance, America. Super Tuesday is your last chance. Everybody is making this about politics. Everybody thinks I'm sitting here talking about Ted Cruz because, I don't know, I get money from Ted Cruz, and I just don't like Donald Trump because I was in his office asking him for money, or whatever the hell his excuse his.

I'm not standing for Ted Cruz. I'm standing for the Constitution of the United States of America. I'm standing for the principles we all swore to each other, to our families, and to ourselves on September 11th, we would never forget.

There is a storm coming of biblical proportions, a storm coming beyond your recognition. When the economy collapses, when our currency is worth toilet paper, who do you want, who do you want handling our nation? You want somebody who has divide us, who is grooming Brownshirts? I was at the caucus last night. I had never seen anything like it. These Trump supporters were beyond recognition as anything I've ever seen --- rude, vile, nasty.

I don't want to say all of them. But there's enough of them. And the ones that I met that were nice, I don't how you can stand in the same room with them. I don't know if you look --- how do you look at those people and say, "Wait a minute. That's what my guy is encouraging." I have some audio to play for you from yesterday. "That's what my guy is encouraging." Everybody said the same thing, "I want change." Boy, America, you are going to get change.

Don't you even hear yourself when you say that? Because you were the ones that stood up and said, "Change to what? Hope and change, Mr. Barack Obama. Mr. Barack Obama supporters, change to what?" I just want change. Oh, dear God.

Why is a man given a voice? Why is a man given the vision of what is to come if he can't do a damn thing about it?

As I wondered what to say to you this morning, and I still don't know, all that went through my head over and over again --- and I know what this means for my business, and I know what this means for my friends, and I know what this means for my family. Because Dana Loesch is going to the FBI because she's getting death threats. I know another very famous media reporter that is also on the highest level of security because of the death threats that's coming in on them.

I know what all of this means. Just in your business, I know what it means. In your popularity, I know what it means. But all I heard this morning was, "Silence in the face of evil is evil itself."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?
