Glenn Beck: Prom night plans in place

Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10

by Marcus Luttrell

GLENN:  Yeah, it is strange, but -- we have Marcus on the phone?  Marcus Luttrell is joining -- you must be so proud, Marcus Luttrell, to join us in this conversation.


GLENN:  Hey, Marcus, I tried to call you the other day.

LUTTRELL:  I was fishing.

GLENN:  You were what?

LUTTRELL:  I was fishing.

GLENN:  You were fishing?

LUTTRELL:  Yes, sir, I don't take my phone out there.  Sorry about that.

GLENN:  What do you mean?  Okay, hang on just a second.  I believe I learned in your number one New York best times -- New York Times Best Seller Lone Survivor that a cell phone is kind of important.  You never know when you might need one for a helicopter to come pick you guys up.  Marcus, I wanted to talk to you because remember we talked, what was it, about two, three weeks ago and I was getting ready to go on vacation and I called you, and if I'm not mistaken -- I just want to make sure I understood this right -- you said, "Glenn, you can call me anytime.  If you ever need anything, you let me know.  Whatever you need, I'm there."  Right?

LUTTRELL:  Yes, sir.

GLENN:  Now, that wasn't just like, hey, Glenn, if you ever need any radio thing.  That was kind of like, hey, if your family or you need anything personally, right?

LUTTRELL:  You need anything, you just call.

GLENN:  All right.  Here's what I have.  You ready?

LUTTRELL:  Yes, sir.

GLENN:  All right.  The night before the NRA speech -- by the way, are you coming with me or are we going to meet there?

LUTTRELL:  Yeah, I'll be there.  Oh, yeah.

GLENN:  Are you going to come with me or are you going to meet me there?

LUTTRELL:  (Inaudible).

GLENN:  What did you say?

LUTTRELL:  I'll come out there with you.

GLENN:  Okay, good.  On the way to the airport I might have to make a stop, and I was wondering if you wanted to come in, you know, and meet somebody.  I'm sure he's going to be a fan of yours.  Here's the thing.  Here's the thing.  My daughter has a prom the night that we're supposed to go to the NRA convention and I just thought, totally unconnected, I just thought the guy that's going with her to the prom might enjoy meeting somebody who fought 400 Al-Qaeda members and lived.

LUTTRELL:  Oh, we can definitely do this.  We can have a blast with this ole boy.

GLENN:  Oh, I just thought, I just thought since we're going to be together, I might as well take The Lone Survivor just -- I mean, just, you know, I would recommend -- what do you think, Marcus?  She should be home at 10:00?

LUTTRELL:  Yeah.  Whatever time you pick her up, we'll start from there, pick her up at 8:00, you better have her home by, you know, 9:00.  An hour, we better get moving then, boy.  Whatever happens to her tonight is going to happen to you.  Do you understand what I'm saying?

GLENN:  Have you ever -- I mean, I just want you to know I'm not above using you to protect my daughter.  Do you have any friends that are as slimy as me, they are just willing to use you as a prop?  "He'll kill you if you touch my daughter."

LUTTRELL:  What's this guy's name?

GLENN:  I'd rather not say.

LUTTRELL:  All right.

GLENN:  Unless I have to.  What did you say?

LUTTRELL:  I'll stay on him right now.  Just sit in front of his house every day, don't say anything to him.

GLENN:  Are you back in New York?

LUTTRELL:  Yes, sir.

GLENN:  What are you doing --

LUTTRELL:  It's the one day of the year that I come up here.  You said yourself before I got on the show.

GLENN:  It's nice, isn't it, Marcus?  Have you been out on the streets yet?

LUTTRELL:  Yes, sir, it's a great day.  I mean, everybody's walking around here, beautiful women everywhere.

GLENN:  I know, I know.  Hey, listen.  Take my advice.  Some prostitution rings are safer than others.

LUTTRELL:  57th, right?

GLENN:  Yeah.  I don't think that's a good -- I don't think that's a good -- I think they are all unsafe but maybe that's just the prude in me.  Marcus, we'll talk to you, my man.

LUTTRELL:  Yes, sir.

GLENN:  Thank you.  We'll see you soon.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
