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.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

You can donate to Grace's legal fund here.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
