Who Will You Serve?

From WOWO radio in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Today, we are out on the road in Indiana with Carly Fiorina and Ted Cruz. And people in Indiana have to make their choice. Peter King, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner --- they have all made their choice. They're stumping for Donald Trump. But the people that matter are the people in the the heartland. It goes back from the coasts in to the center of the country, people connecting with their heart over their head. Meaning, softening their heart and not letting the anger that has been played in their head for a long time take root. How will they decide?

I think it's wildly appropriate that this election now comes back to the heartland, the people who have connected with the hearts --- with the values --- and have actually lived the values of this country for their whole life.

Driving through farmland, we're seeing the people who work with their hands. This is the largest manufacturing state in the union, and they've lost a lot of jobs. A lot of people are angry, but they know the principles that will bring them back home again.

We're connecting in the heartland with people's hearts, as opposed to the heads of the intellectuals on the coast, as opposed to the heads and the talking heads in Washington, D.C., and New York. It's the values and the principles that got us here.

In Boston, Howie Carr, a talk radio host on WRKO wrote an op-ed piece. He's in the tank for Donald Trump, which is fine. As long as you're out and open about it, I'm totally fine. I have a bigger problem with people who pretend to be neutral and they're not neutral.

But Howie Carr has come out for Donald Trump. And here's what he said:

I now have a roommate at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. It's my wife. She was elected yesterday as a Donald Trump delegate at the national G.O.P. convention. And unfortunately for Dying Ted Cruz, she's not a double agent for him or any other Canadian-born RINOs.

Yesterday's congressional caucuses in Boston were yet another sad day for the GOP here in Massachusetts. Weekends are when the Cruz people try to make up for the beatings they absorb from the actual voters every Tuesday. And as bad as Tuesdays are for Cruz's cult, Saturdays are usually their time to slither back into the game, mainly because nobody is paying any attention.

But yesterday in Massachusetts, the local RINOs could deliver no more than four or so of the 27 votes on the table for the Calgary comet, Rafael Eduardo Cruz Jr., the Calgary comet.

Until this week, everything seemed to be falling into place for the Beacon Hill RINOs. Remember, their agenda is rather modest: six-figure state hack jobs for themselves, a few rattlesnakes, and a lot of sex offenders in the ladies' room. But that's about it.

All of yesterday's caucus locations were picked to assure a minimum turnout of actual voters and a maximum turnout of Cruz's crew of toothless snake chuckers.

This is an adult writing this, by the way. It's not a high school student. I just want to point out that the locations of the caucuses were not picked out after Ted Cruz was on the campaign trail. All of these things have been decided long before. But he claims they were selected for a maximum turnout of "Cruz's crew of toothless snake chuckers."

Yay, verily, the howl of holiness was expected to be heard in the blue hills yesterday. Tongues were to be spoken, and the gospel according to Pastor Beck. Turn to Chapter 11, brethren. He was to be preaching among the hookworm-afflicted fans of the junior senator from Texas. "Put your hands on your radio," he writes.

These Cruz RINOs have no shame. Their phony baloney hack jobs are on the line. After all, they claimed my wife hadn't shown proper ID, even though she had a certified letter from the town clerk attesting to her credentials. She was even born in the US, and that really bothered the Cruz Kool-Aid drinkers. Lying Ted stuck his minions on me, my wife said.

The fact is, there are more of us than them. Promoting Al fresco baptisms in the local creeks is not the way to build a majority, no matter what the voices in Ted Cruz's head tell him. So now my wife heads to Cleveland with me, and, no, we won't be ducking any of her fellow delegates in the Cuyoga River, no matter what his pet serpents tell Rafael at all to do. Can someone shout an amen?

That is not from the left. That is from talk radio. That is from the bastion of the right. I want to talk to whoever might be left because Abraham Lincoln was right: If this nation is to fall, the threat is going to come from within.

I want to take you back to April 30, just a few days ago, well, a few days and hundreds of years.

April 30, 1789, George Washington had just raised his right hand and placed his left hand on the Bible, which had been hastily opened randomly because they were running behind schedule. And he put his hand on Genesis 49. After he took the oath of office, the crowd cheered, "Long Live Washington!"

Then he walked a few blocks to attend a service, as was passed in the congressional resolution two days prior.

(Remember, we're not a Christian nation. We're not a nation that was founded at all on God. God played no role in this nation. Yes, we took a 5000 Year Leap in 100 years after the Constitution was ratified. We took a 5000 Year Leap. We went from fire to electricity. We went from, excuse my French, and I know it's not actually French, crapping in the woods to indoor plumbing. People had lived in poverty. People had lived without medicine. We went from hacking legs off, from something that had been done for thousands of years, and within 100 years, we had anesthesia. What gave us that 5000 Year Leap? Freedom did. The freedom to use your own mind. The freedom to be able to pursue your own happiness and keep the gains that you made from it. No longer could a Lord or a Lady say to you, a serf, "that's my idea." No. Now because of Ben Franklin's idea, the patent, it was your idea. You could keep it. The copyright says it's mine.)

George Washington walked a few blocks to attend a service passed in the congressional resolution just two days before his inauguration. It read:

"Resolve that after the oath of office shall have been administered to the president, he, attended by the vice president and members of the Senate and the House of Representatives, shall proceed to St. Paul's Chapel to hear divine service."

This chapel still stands. It's the oldest church on Manhattan Island. It's now known as The Little Church That Stood. It's across the street from where the World Trade Center once stood. It's the building that didn't have a single broken window. No damage.

It is here that Washington spent hours in prayer with the Senate and the Congress. He made a covenant with God there in front of the House and the Senate. They made a covenant: You will be our God, and we shall be your people.

Now, whether you believe in this toothless snake-charming stuff or not --- I do. And I believe we have more than ample evidence to show that God's hand has been on this country. Not always to guide it, because we're not always listening to him. We make mistakes over and over again, but he has protected this land. You know it and I know it. No land has been so protected as this land.

And I believe this covenant is still in effect, and it has protected us for a great while. But now, even talk radio, even talk radio is mocking God. We are shunning him. Openly mocking him, on all sides. We have chased him from our public spaces and our conversations. His laws aren't recognized anymore in our local courtrooms. Certainly not in our schools, our businesses, nor in most of our homes. And not only can we as a people not name the basic ten laws of God -- try it, right now. Can you name the top Ten Commandments? They're only ten. Give me the top ten. Give me the top seven. Ask your children. Can they? We don't even know them, so we break them as individuals and as a nation on a regular basis.

We have become lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal and haters of things that are good. And we wonder why our nation is in trouble.

It has nothing to do with Washington, D.C. It has nothing to do with those we sent to Washington, D.C. It has everything to do with us. Because those in Washington, D.C, are a mere reflection of us. Who are we?

Are we Hillary Clinton? Is that who best represents us? Because we're not a Democracy. We are a Representative Republic, which means, we find the people like us, whether we like it or not. The only reason why Hillary Clinton can get away with what she's gotten away with is because the Democrats were like Hillary Clinton. Not all of them. And not knowingly. They don't necessarily engage in it, but they tolerate it.

The only reason why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and all of the dirt bags in Washington on the right are there because that's us in many ways.

America is going to face the choice: Are we Hillary Clinton? Are we Bernie Sanders? Are we Marxists or are we criminals? Are we bullies? Are we the status quo? Or are we, the people of courage? Are we still a nation of God? Have you ever seen an election like to before? Because I never have. I've never seen an election like this.

Last night, about 1 o'clock in the morning, we pulled up into a Courtyard Inn, Fort Wayne, Indiana. I had flown in yesterday afternoon. I had spoken to about 6,000 people, away from my family and my business until Wednesday night.

This weekend, this weekend it was amazing to read Facebook, people mocking me for now losing money to be with losing Ted Cruz. I'm putting my money where my mouth is. How about you, blogger?

I met a woman last night in line. She came up to me. She looked a lot like my mom. She came up to me, and she said, "I'm a regular person, Glenn. I have a regular job. I don't have a lot of money." She said, "But I've been listening to all of them." She said, "I so believe that there's only one way out of this." She said, "I've heard you talk about for so long, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor, but this is really the time, isn't it?" I said, "Yes, I think it is. That's why I'm here." She said, "This weekend, I gave the maximum donation to the Cruz campaign." She said, "I can't afford that." She said, "But I took it out of my savings because we got to stop this."

I've never seen an election like this where every single state counts. Indiana doesn't usually count. Hell, Texas doesn't usually count. It's usually over by Florida for sure. But every single state, every single one is being asked to stand, every citizen. This may be our last chance. And I mean that. Because I know God is just, I tremble for my country. Thomas Jefferson.

The Supreme Court judges that will be appointed are enough to seal our fate alone. But this is an individual choice. There's no collective salvation and he's asking each one of us to choose. It's the only way to really break a covenant. America is at a crossroads. Will we choose a king? Because he'll let us.

Because we're the only nation since ancient Israel to actually have made a covenant with him, it has to be broken, I believe, by all of us. Now, I know a lot of people will mock this theory, but in a way that will prove my point. We've become a nation of unholy people, and he wants to see all of us, each state choose.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
