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.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
