Join 1791 During November and Give Our Vets a Hand Up

Next Friday on Veterans Day, I am doing a special on veterans and the struggles they face. They are overwhelming. At least 21 vets kill themselves every day. We are failing those who have never failed us.

Recently, I challenged not just myself, but everyone I work with to look at the way we do our jobs and try to do good instead of just focusing on doing well. I am so proud of the people I work with, many of whom are veterans, and their genuine devotion in making a difference.

The team at 1791, our clothing company, spent some time listening to one of the vets that works with us. Her name is Jessica, and she came up with a really great idea about doing a better job of doing good while doing business.

#1791HandUp4Vets

This month while Mercury One moves our 4000th Christian out of danger in Syria and Iraq, 1791, is doing something here at home for our vets to keep them warm this winter and get them back into the workforce.

This Veterans Day, we want to do more than just remember our heroes. We are going to make sure they have the skills and clothing needed to interview and secure a good job. For those who are still on the streets, while we work to find them shelter and a home, we also want to help keep them warm. It's a small gesture, but one that will have a significant impact.

We invite you to join us.

During the month of November, you can take an active role in giving our vets a hand up. At 1791.com/veterans, you'll find information about our One to Wear, One to Share campaign, our Add a Jacket program and our Hire a Vet project. You can also see personal stories from veterans who have experienced tough times and come through it as survivors.

Let's Come Together

We can all say we support our vets, that we love and appreciate them, and for the most part all of us do --- left and right. But during this next election week you will also find Veterans Day on the calendar. We believe this is an opportunity to show our vets through deeds --- not just words --- that we do care about them. Our country has never been more divided. Let's come together on something we can all get behind: Helping our humble and most deserving --- our vets.

I have personally partnered with companies like Wells Fargo to help build and give away houses to vets, my family of companies are working through our elected officials to improve the Veterans Administration, and our people and Mercury One have volunteered time as well as raised awareness and funding for new medical facilities and treatments that are pioneering ways to treat our vets who, all too often, fall through the cracks.

I am proud that this November 1791 will add more kindling to the fire that is burning in all of our hearts to serve these men and women. 1791 is making an effort to do business in a different way, putting our priorities in order and simply trying harder to be better men, women and people. Come with us on this journey to change our little corner of the world by changing ourselves first.

Watch the video above and then join us in any way that fits you. Even if you decide to do something entirely different without us, our hope is that what we are trying to do, sparks something great in you. Together we can make a difference.

Give a Veteran a Hand Up Now

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
