Facing your Storm


FaceYourStorm.com

GLENN: Unlike the contestant in More-On Trivia that couldn't find the down side of printing money, there is always a price to be paid. The dot-com bubble burst. We cured it with a housing bubble. It burst. We're curing that with a money bubble. It's the last bubble. When this one bursts, there ain't anything left because our money will be worthless. And why did we do this? Because we didn't want people to suffer. Politicians wanted to get reelected. They wanted to be able to say they were doing everything they could and people don't want to suffer. So they solved the dot-com bubble with the housing bubble. When that burst, they don't want anybody to suffer. Well, you know what? There is suffering out there and there's nothing wrong with suffering. There's nothing wrong with it. We all suffer. We all have our own crosses to bear, or if that's too politically incorrect in this Christmas season, we all have our storm to face.

I've been so encouraged -- let me read the letter to you. I have been so encouraged by the letters I'm getting. I'm getting thousands of them. "Glenn, my name is"... blank. "I put that authenticate myself. I don't want to just be Joe the plumber. Last week I tried to hang myself in my closet. The shelf broke and here I am. I'm ashamed of myself, but it feels good to tell you and to thank you for my life. After it broke, I just laid there in my closet. I got up. I went out to my truck and I just drove. You were on the radio telling us about your past and the sweater. I have two daughters. I'm happily married. Just the same old story. I lost everything. You made me realize I actually had it all. Thanks." Now, this is a guy that gets it.

There's going to be a lot of pain. When you look at the numbers of the people, the companies that have said, you know, AT&T, 12,000 jobs announced today, I mean, I sat at a big boardroom table with the head people of GM a couple of weeks ago, one of the days where they laid off I don't know how many thousands of people. I didn't know about it until I got in the car and we were leaving that they had just announced it and I was -- I had the meeting right after the meeting when they decided what was going to happen. And they looked like they had been beaten up with a baseball bat. I mean, I just, I met with them before. I had just never seen them that way. They were just beaten with a baseball bat because they see the human toll. And we can't be blind to the human toll, but you've got to stay in the boat to help others. You've got to get in the boat. I mean, if you're so close to the boat you can reach out and grab it, the boat is moving. Grab the boat and get in now. Take care of your own stuff. Get in the boat because you're going to be asked to help. It is all hands on deck. You are going to be asked to help others.

I asked my team to put together a website: Faceyourstorm.com. This is a different, a completely different website and I'd like to make this a place where -- I mean, it's going to be up to you, but I'd like to make this a place to where people are sharing their storm, they're sharing what it is they're either currently going through or have just gone through. You know, I meet people and they keep saying to me, especially after the show, thank you. Thank you for sharing the story. Thank you, I didn't know; I thought I was alone. You're not. The secret is sharing it. Everybody feels alone. Everybody feels that their problems are just out of control, their guilt, their storm, whatever it is is out of control. And, you know, if we would just talk to each other, if we would just share with each other, we would see, "Oh, my gosh, so many other people have it worse than mine."

When I was going through a storm here recently and I kind of yelled at God and said I don't want to do it anymore, I can't do it anymore. Do you know what the answer was? In prayer the answer was, focus on other people. I didn't even know what that meant. So I started focusing on other people. It was about a week into it that I was so absorbed in the other things that were going on in people around me, in their life that I had forgotten about mine, and I didn't forget about it per se. I just, I wasn't dwelling on it. I was fixing mine while helping others and paying attention to others. I invite you to go to faceyourstorm.com and, please, share your story. Some of the stories that I have read, please, if you have written me, if you have stood in line just to say hello and shake my hand and hand me a letter, please, I don't want to post your letters without your permission and I don't have everybody's phone number or whatever. I just have these letters, and they're incredible. Please, please, if you have a storm or if you've shared them with me in writing, please go to faceyourstorm.com and help other people overcome their obstacle. They think theirs is the hardest. When you share yours, they will see, holy cow, if they did it, I can do it. Even if you haven't done it yet, go there and find a way to connect with other people. Just put it down on paper, even if this is your first step. Just put it down. Don't identify yourself. Just put it down. Get it out. It's poison. Get it out there. Share it. You will find comfort. Please don't identify yourself. Faceyourstorm.com.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
