Steadfast and Honorable: You Are the Audience That Saves the World

I want to thank you for being here every day. I want to thank you for listening to this program. It's an honor to serve you.

Here's why: I have said --- I think almost since 9/11 --- that this audience is going to be the one that rescues the free world, that rescues the country. I don't know why, but I've always believed that.

Let me try to give you the reasons.

I'm going to give you the first reason in the context of what's going on in the country right not and its direct correlation to this Megyn Kelly interview with Alex Jones. JPMorgan Chase has asked to pull their sponsorship from the show on Sunday. Are you kidding me? Time magazine made Hitler the man of the year! What has happened to our country, where we can't listen to an opposing view or something we don't agree with?

Explain it to your friends upset by this interview by asking this: What do you think of safe zones on schools?

And you answer: I think they're ridiculous. I think that's absolute hogwash --- safe zones in schools.

And here are the follow-up questions: Then why can't you handle an interview with something that you don't like? Why can't you handle the news that exposes you to things that you don't necessarily agree with?

"Question with boldness, even the very existence of God." When Thomas Jefferson wrote that, was there a more dangerous thing to question than God? I mean, that was insanity. Nobody questioned God.

Question with boldness, even the very existence of God, for if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear.

Now, the key is honest questioning. That's the real problem. There are very few people in journalism doing honest questioning these days. And there are more voices that are just throwing out red meat. And, quite honestly, in the past, mine included. That's not going to get us anywhere because we're all starting to go into our caves.

And here's what's going to happen: If these boycotts continue, where they are affecting NBC and a real journalist sitting down with a controversial newsmaker, then you won't have any news. You know where you'll get your news? NPR and PBS. They will nationalize the news --- congratulations on that. They will say, we can't afford it, so the government needs to underwrite it. You want to know where the boycotts lead us? They lead us to the BBC, nationalized news.

Will your own voice be represented there? What will the national news media say about the voices online? I can tell you right now they'll call it fake news. Ted Koppel says it's fake news. He thinks we should license people to be able to put their opinions online. That's the crazy world we're entering in.

Now, what we're feeling is chaos. We are feeling disruption happening in the old world and in this new world, and it's going to be tough to get through. But because you are who you are --- you understand honest questioning, you understand there are no safe zones in life, you understand the First Amendment to mean no infringement on the press --- because you know what that means, you know that anybody who wants to write a story can write a story.

You are going to be the audience that saves the world because every other audience is starting to run and hide from the things that make them uncomfortable.

We all should be doing one thing every week that puts us in an uncomfortable position. You should be challenging yourself, your friends. Challenging yourself to meet new people, to get new experiences --- at least once a week. You should say, "I can't believe I just did that. That was cool. That was a little scary, but that was cool."

We're calcifying, and we need to break that up. Freedom, as they say, isn't free. Liberty isn't free. Liberty takes work --- mind work. It doesn't take guns. It takes nimble minds.

Right now, we're living in a world where you cannot define right and wrong. What is right and what is wrong? People in school are being taught that there is no right or wrong. Two plus two equals five, if you can show me the work. At the same time, we are taking apart every single truth that we know.

We are now entering a world where we are programming AI. Well, we have to have certain axioms that we know are true as we program AI: Human life is paramount. If we teach that all truth is subjective, what do you think is going to happen when AI is asked, can you solve these problems? "Sure, I can. Humans are a virus. Humans are causing the problems."

How can we possibly wrestle with the questions that we need to program AI, if we can't decide on truth --- if we can't even have a conversation that explores the truth?

So, I just want to thank you for being here, for being steadfast and not going over the cliff with the rest of humanity. This audience is --- and always has been --- special.

Thank you for the honor of serving you.

Editor's Note: This article is based on Glenn's radio monologue delivered on June 13, 2017.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
