WATCH: Two Years Ago Glenn Asked His Audience for $1M to Save Christians, They Gave $17.5M—Here's What Happened

Today is a celebration. It is a celebration of courage --- the courage you showed by standing up and saying, “Never Again Is Now!” It's a celebration of commitment --- the commitment you showed to stop murder and persecution when the rest of the world remained silent. It is a celebration of strength --- the strength you showed by comforting and healing those displaced and traumatized by war. It is a celebration of prayer. It is a celebration of faith. It is a celebration of you.

Two years ago today, at Restoring Unity in Birmingham, The Nazarene Fund was born to help rescue Christians and religious minorities in the Middle East. The gifts you provided, both large and small, resulted in miracles for those seeking refuge from the horrors of war and genocide.

Glenn Beck at Restoring Unity in Birmingham, AL, August 28, 2015.

Since Restoring Unity in Birmingham, this is what your gifts to The Nazarene Fund have accomplished:

• Delivered Emergency Humanitarian Aid to over 35,000 people in the Middle East

• Cleared 4 refugee camps and moved 5,462 people into homes located in safe areas

• Evacuated 7,602 refugees --- who can never go home --- to safe harbors in 6 countries

• Sponsored the rescue and recovery of 61 mothers and children held as slaves by ISIS

Additionally, dozens of partners on six continents helped set right the injustices leveled on so many innocents. These partners are servants to the causes of justice, compassion and the rendering of aid. This is a celebration of them, too.

From everyone at Mercury One, we want to say “thank you” for believing that together we could do what seemed impossible.

We also want to thank you on behalf of the 50,000 Christians and other persecuted religious minorities you have directly assisted in Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and wherever the ISIS war has caused destruction, displacement and damage to the human spirit.

In 2016 and 2017, The Nazarene Fund has focused on the task at hand, placing all efforts on the mission to rescue, rebuild and restore people’s lives. Soon we will start a new chapter. And although much has been done, the work has just begun. Once again we ask for you to stand with us. To help us look evil in the eye and say, “No. You will not win today.”

Help us celebrate life. Help us celebrate hope. Help us celebrate The Nazarene Fund by donating at www.TheNazareneFund.org.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

Dan Bongino details behind-the-scenes 'SMEAR' against Parler

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually VALUES free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Big Tech isn't making it easy for organizations outside of the left's coalition to survive. Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer for Parler — the social media platform now throttled by Amazon, Apple, and Google. She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."
