Stand Firm: Truth Speaks, Lies Whisper

It's a tough day in America. First and foremost, please pray for the people involved in the Virginia shooting, the police, their family members and all of our congressional members.

It's going to feel good to lash out with words today --- but I urge you not to. Instead, stand firm in the truth. And the truth is, we don't yet know the motivation behind what happened at a baseball field in Virginia.

Please, let's do our best not to speculate. This guy may have been completely nuts. This guy may be politically motivated. If so, he could be a liberal who believes Republicans are evil because of their beliefs or he could be a conservative who believes Republicans are evil because they're not doing what they promised. We just don't know.

So please, it's going to feel good to lash out. You literally will get hit with a rush of dopamine. When you read or post something that makes you go, "Yeah, stick it to him!" you literally will get a hit a chemical rush that plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior. It will feel good. But just because it feels good, doesn't mean we should do it.

Look, I am sick and tired of the hypocrisy just like you are. Here's what I want to say: screw you, Democrats. I mean, look what's in Vanity Fair today. It's a whole painting of Trump's hell, where they've made all of the people around Donald Trump --- you know, Paul Ryan and everybody --- look as though they are literal demons and Klan people and everything else.

What I want to say is, if we would have produced something like that about you and Gabby Giffords, you would have been scooping people up. You were on the air saying, "Gabby Giffords, this is Tea Party rhetoric." You did that for days, even after it was discovered the guy votes Democrat --- and he was insane. You still were doing it.

Turn around is fair play, isn't it? No, it's not. It's not.

We have to find a way to reduce the friction, to reduce the chaos, to reduce the hatred --- and it's going to go against everything that feels good.

We don't know anything about the Virginia shooter yet. Even after the reports come out, we may not know really anything true about him. But what is going to be said about us?

We've been talking about this for a while. I said years ago --- and I don't even know why I said it . . . I'm not smart enough to come up with this --- everything that you think is solid will be liquid and everything liquid will be solid. The world will be upside down and inside out. There was really no reason to start saying that in 2006, but now we see what has happened.

As convinced as I was on that, I am also convinced, equally so, that there now is no truth. There is no truth, and that is by design. Our colleges and universities are telling us all truth is subjective. That truth is a lie. It's a myth.

I want you to know, I am not going over the cliff with the rest of humanity. There is truth. It is easy to find.

Common sense does not exist anymore. It is now uncommon sense. But everybody still has access to common sense. They just have to listen to the small voice, to the still, small voice. Listen. Truth speaks; lies whisper all the time.

But you can find the truth. It is verifiable. It is easy. There is truth. My question to you is, what is the truth about us?

Are we people who are at civil war and are ready to condemn our neighbors and our friends --- who I am convinced, with an exception of probably 10 percent on the right and 10 percent on the left who want us to hate each other and need us to hate each other --- there is a good 70 to 80 percent of this country that doesn't want any of that. And I stand in the middle with them on that point.

I will live next to any man, no matter their faith, their creed, their color, as long as they respect my right to live my way, just like I respect their right. It doesn't matter to me.

I believe that is the majority of Americans. You can allow yourself to be derailed and believe that we're in the minority, but I will go to my grave not going over that cliff with the rest of humanity. I do not believe that is who we are. And I would rather go out believing that than buying into the darkness that we're at civil war --- that we've got to go to war, strap arms to us and hate the other side.

I'm not going there, and I invite you to join me --- because the truth is a much better place.

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
