Glenn Beck: 10 Million Watchdogs

GLENN: I want to have a serious kind of ‑‑ I don't even know what to call ‑‑ a call to action here. I'd like to ask you to become a part of America's future. I'd like to ask you to become a part of the solution and not the problem. For the last few years ‑‑ and I'll just give a real quick update. Last hour go back in the archives, the radio archives at GlennBeck.com and listen to last hour's monologue at the top of the hour to give you kind of the history of where I've been and why I am doing what I do on the radio. But I have, in a nutshell if you've been listening for a while, I think you can sense the darkness, the sadness quite honestly that has been in me for the last couple of years and specifically in the last year. We are headed for real destruction, and I have been ‑‑ I feel like I have been a watchman on the tower just as much as you a re, and you know the frustration of just trying to wake your friends up and they won't listen to you. And you're like, jeez! Well, what ‑‑ part of the problem for me is I have felt like I have been behind the game. They had such a lead on us, I couldn't figure out, and it really started with George Bush violated the border policy. That's when I was like whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, what? How can you say you are trying to keep us safe but you won't secure the border; that doesn't make any sense at all. And that's when I started to question everything in my government and say, wait a minute, these things don't make sense. And they're huge. And I couldn't figure it out and I couldn't figure it out and I couldn't figure it out. And then I warned against John McCain and Barack Obama, but Barack Obama's such an obvious Marxist: No, no, no, that's crazy talk. "We're going to be socialist!" "No, no, no, that's crazy talk." And here we are. Nobody would listen. Because I couldn't put all of the pieces together. Well, I will tell you that I have only begun to expose the pieces that we have found, and I know what is going on now. I know the answer. They are fundamentally transforming ‑‑ Pat, do you h ave the audio piece from Barack Obama we've been playing for the last few days where he says, you know, in five days we begin, and this is his word to us, this is his promise.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

GLENN: And they cheered, and that is how liberty and freedom ends. The sound of a cheer. Our freedom and liberty is so fragile right now, we should whisper her name because too loud of a voice could shatter it. We have never been more fragile than we are right now, and people don't see it. They refuse to see it. But a few weeks ago I was on television, and I won't tell you what episode at this point, but I was on television and I said something on the air and it took my breath away. And when you know what episode, which I will share with you some point later, and you know what I discovered, what clicked finally in my head by accident, it darn near took my breath away, and you can see it once you know. You're like, whoa, what happened there? I went home and I rushed home to watch it on television. My gosh, could you see me? Do you know which one? Yeah. And it's when it clicked. And it's when I knew. It's when all of the pieces that didn't make sense suddenly made sense, and I knew what we were facing. What you don't know is I then went to several people that I really truly respect and I can tr ust, and I asked them to form a research team and, in fact, Stu didn't even know this until this morning, but I put a research team together that worked for me, and they are people that don't have an agenda. They just want the truth. And I have asked them to disprove my theory. But it involves transformation, and I hope to be able to come to you with names, dates, events, more than just threads, more than just feelings. But to show, be able to draw up the whole picture for you.

But once that clicked in my head, it was like a bomb went off in my head because I knew what we were truly facing and then I went into the deepest depression I had been in for a while on this because I'm like, you know, the end seemed, from what is it, Gene Wilder in the producers, "No way out, no way out." That's the way I felt. "I want my blue blankie. No way out." And I didn't know how to answer the one question that everybody asks me: What do I do. I haven't been able to give you that answer. I've been able to give you pieces, et cetera, et cetera. But I will tell you that I'm going to ask you a favor. I'm going to ask for you to ‑‑ you know, I've actually read in, you know, blogs: Glenn Beck is trying to build an army. No, I'm not. No, I'm not. But I am going to ask you to volunteer for service. You leave your gun at home but you bring your brain.

I learned something a couple of weeks ago when we got our second dog. There is something about a giant 100‑pound German Shepherd that's running towards the fence at you when you try to come to my house, it sends a message. But there's something even more powerful, more than twice as powerful and that is two dogs running towards the fence. I learned this because I was in training with the dogs, and they are canines. They're police dogs and I need them unfortunately because the world we live in, I need them for protection for the family. And that's the first line of defense. And as they were going through training there in the side yard, a neighbor was walking their dog and they stopped and they just watched for a second. And they watched as the dog trainer, the dog handler was there all in a giant suit, a dog bite suit and had a little club. It's kind of a soft club that he kind of irritates the dogs with and then me with the two German Shepherds. And my family was out there and we all we want through it and we do it all the time and make sure that they're well behaved, and as we sat there and I released the dogs and gave them the command and they went and they ran after this guy and pushed him down to the ground. And they just ‑‑ and they were ready to rip his arm off. I thought, boy, I don't want to be on the receiving end of that. There's a healthier fear that comes along. Then he said to me, he said, okay, and he really got him riled up and he's like, okay, you ready? Okay. And I said, yeah. And he's menacing. And he walked away about 20 feet and he said ‑‑ and he stood there with a club and he as like, come on, come on! And I released the dogs and he didn't move. And both the dogs stopped and just stared at him. And I said, what kind of horrible attack dog is that? He said, can you call them off? I said, yeah. I gave them the command and they came back to me. They put their faces up to my leg and I petted them and I'm thinking, bad dog; you're supposed to bite him. And he said, that's amazing. He said, your older dog, he said, he hasn't been through this training in four years. He said, he remembers. And I said, what? He didn't do anything. And he said, no, yes, he did. I didn't move. And if I'm not moving, if I'm not threatening, he's just supposed to watch me and make sure I don't move until you arrive. That's when a light bulb went off.

I know what's going on in our country now and I have a research team that is doing some research on this to be able to present you with the facts. When I have facts, when I have enough, I'm going to come to you. I can lay out the things that there is transformation coming, and I can point you in the direction, but I would like to have more. But I don't even think it's necessary now to have more. If you just continue to listen to the program, I will spell it out for you and you'll see it yourself and you will begin to see it. People are writing me now, they are seeing on television, they say, Glenn, I'm watching your show, I'm listening to your radio show, and I'm seeing it; oh, my gosh, how did I miss it. But I'm going to continue to do that. But I'm going to tell you now I have to remove ‑‑ I feel, I have just had this impression that I need to remove myself from the problem area now. I need to stop looking at the ‑‑ I know what the problem is. I have to stop admiring the problem, and I have to now look for the solutions. And I know what some of the solutions are, and they are coming to me fast and furious right now, and I have never been more hopeful because I think we got them. But I want to do the same thing that I did on the economy. I' m not going to come to you and just say, "Hey, let's do this!" This is too serious. It I took me a long time to come up with the answer for the economy and to warn you on the economy. I didn't come on the first day that I knew the economy was going to fall apart two years ago. I shut my mouth for a while.

The same thing with this. I didn't go on. I just kept saying to you, there's something wrong, there's something wrong, there's something wrong, this isn't right. But I took my time and did my research and did my homework. I am going to meet with some of the best people I can find, and I've already got them lined up, and I'm going to meet with people from several different fields, and I mean the best of the best. And I am going to find the answers and I am going to bring them to you, but here's what I need you to do first. I need you to be a constitutional watchdog because we need to stop these people in their tracks, and the one thing I learned is while there is one thing about one watchdog, there's something more than twice as powerful in two watchdogs. Now imagine with the radio audience and the television audience, imagine ten million watchdogs. I need you in the next couple of days to help me. This is like a 100 front war. He is overwhelming the system. It is right out of the playbook from Saul Alinsky. It is what a community organizer does: Overwhelm the system. That's why people call me ‑‑ in fact, somebody just called me a little while ago and said, Glenn, how come you didn't talk about this. I did. I just no longer have the time to stand on one issue because the entire forest is on fire.

But see, here's the secret: I or Rush or anybody else, they don't have to do it alone. We don't need the mainstream media anymore. The paradigm is about to shift. Don't worry about the media. The media will find themselves in the dustbin of history. We have each other. We currently have all forms of communication available to us. We currently ‑‑ and I don't know how long this lasts, but we currently have an unrestricted Internet where we can communicate and we can find the answers. You will be amazed on how many answers you can find. You will be amazed on how transparent things really are when you just know what to look for.

I need you to help me define what the fronts are. What are the lines that they are moving in and pushing on. For instance, healthcare cannot be passed. No form of universal healthcare. Because it is not about the healthcare. It is about the structure, and I will outline this in the next few days. Structure is what matters. Nothing else matters. Structure is what matters. We need to watch the czars. We need to watch cap and trade, structure on cap and trade. We need to watch ‑‑ quite honestly we need to guard, as much as I hate every member of congress, we need to guard congress because the executive branch is devouring all other branches. They are devouring it, and the people in congress are so stupid, so insipid or so in on the game, they are going to find themselves irrelevant wildly fast. We must guard all three branches of government. It is a shell game. It is a transformation. And what I said to you over a year ago, you will wake up someday and your country will not be the same. It's happening, and it's happening right now. But one person can't watch it all. No media source can even do it. I have ‑‑ it's Sophie's Choice every day. I come in and I don't know what to talk about because I've got so much to talk about. I can't cover it all. I can't do it all justice. Don't worry about it. You just make sure they don't move. You just pin them and make sure they don't move. That's all that has ‑‑ there needs to be wrenches in the gears of this government. I have never been for a "Do nothing" congress. I mean, I like it when they do nothing. It's much better when they're doing nothing than something. But I have never been ‑‑ I've always hated the obstructionists. I've always hated the parties who were like, "Yeah, well, now they're just going to thwart everything." And they do. The Republicans do it and the Democrats do it. It's time for the people to do it. Stop the machinery of this government because they are building something, and you do not want to have that unveiled. Believe me, you do not want that unveiled. Stop the machinery of government. Watch them on ‑‑ and here's the great thing. You don't have to watch them on all fronts. There are 10 million listeners. Pick the thing that interests you. Are you into guns? Are you into healthcare? Do you know it? Do you feel it? Do you watch something on TV and say, "I know this, I know what they're doing!" Follow it! Don't pay attention to all of it. You'll get lost. That's what they want us to do. So don't follow all of it. Follow the thing that your gut says "This is important and I understand this and I get this." Just follow that one thing and alert me. We will put the gears into at least neutral. Eventually we will jam that back into reverse. And if we don't, we'll strip all the damn gears because it will be time to get out of the car and rebuild it the American way. So I ask you, will you be a constitutional watchdog. The time has come to bark and to bark loudly. Understand what this means. What this means is you may be called a racist, a homophobe, a hate monger, you want to starve children. Whatever it is, whatever your category is, they will find a way to ridicule you because that's what Saul Alinsky taught them to do: Have no fear. No fear no more! Stand up! You know the truth. Stand for the truth because only the truth will set us free.

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

I can no longer relate to the modern pro-choice woman. I don’t want to shout my abortion. I want to pretend it never happened. Up until the SCOTUS leak, I had done a pretty good job of burying my 20-year secret. But the Roe v. Wade information earthquake triggered an eruption. I can no longer pretend to be ambivalent or leave it to blue-check pro-lifers to speak for me. My days of repeating the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra like a good, GenX libertarian feminist are over.

Some pro-abortion activists call their life-ending procedure “self-care,” like they just booked a hot stone massage or a facial at a spa. This is a polite euphemism many women tell themselves – not because we are cold-blooded killers, but because it’s how we survive. We HAVE to lie in order to justify what is actually taking place. Denial is a protective coating, a barrier from the truth. Remember, any woman born after Roe v. Wade has been programmed to believe that abortion is a natural-born right. “It’s legal; therefore it must not be evil. This is a medical procedure. Women do it every day.” Planned Parenthood has a nice way of describing abortion on its website: “A doctor uses a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus.” “Gently take the tissue out.” Benign euphemisms that wrap our hearts and minds in a suffocating cocoon. Benign euphemisms to keep us in line.

I was raised in the Bible Belt and to believe that sex before marriage was the gravest of sins. You’d be better off robbing a store by pistol than to be caught fornicating with a boy. And yet I did fornicate with a boy. No boy I’d ever be proud to bring around to my parents. I never gave him the option to talk me out of it. I just demanded he pay half for the procedure and never speak of it again. I told myself it would be easier to survive the hidden shame of the abortion than wear the shame of my sin on my belly for the next nine months.

...the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job.

I took the so-called “easy” way out at six weeks along and swallowed a pill I got from some abortionist who gave me the creeps. He was no medical saint like the one portrayed in “The Cider House Rules,” nobly saving women from coat-hanger abortions. The doctor in my story made a quick buck at the expense of terrified “good girls.” Years later I would learn he kept aborted fetuses in buckets and was under investigation for shady medical practices. I couldn’t leave his clinic fast enough, but at least I wouldn’t have to miss work or skip my college classes. I could finish my degree and still make my parents proud. How convenient. But the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job. Now I had to see a real obstetrician, get an ultrasound, and deal with the aftermath.

This doctor’s office was nicer. It had bright lights and pink walls. Although my doctor was professional, I still felt the quiet judgment in her voice. I refused to look at the image of my tortured fetus on the screen. I knew what it would mean if I did – my feminist career ambitions would lose the battle to my soul if I looked at that baby. The doctor told me the fetus was still viable but likely mentally damaged. The “kinder” thing to do would be to finish the job at an in-clinic abortion. End the fetus’ suffering and end my own self-torture. I woke up from anesthesia to learn the abortion was complete. It’s over so quickly, but the internal conflict hangs. And hangs.

You find weird ways to cope. Not long after, I discovered an abandoned robin’s egg, still perfectly intact. I wrapped it in a sock and carried it with me for over a decade. If I couldn’t do right by my own child, maybe I could keep this unhatched egg safe. Eventually, I had to come to terms with the fact that the bird egg was dead, and I got therapy. He was a good New York psychologist. Secular, liberal, tolerant. He helped me to forgive myself, but I always knew who I really needed to ask for forgiveness …

It’s easy for a young woman with all those stockpiled eggs in her ovaries to be pro-choice. She can toss away the miracle of life like a rotten banana or a bruised apple because it is easily replaced. It wasn’t until I was forced to confront the mortality of my own fertility that I felt the full force of my regret.

But I do not write this letter to achieve redemption or to be the new face of the pro-life movement. You will not see me pleading with women outside an abortion clinic. You will not see me protesting with a cutesy, homemade sign at the March for Life. You will not see me sparring on Twitter, confronting baby-killers with cold, hard facts. For now, you will not even know my name. I suppose this is not very brave, but my story is not complete and God’s work in me is in an active state. Mine is a modest mission: Maybe if I’m honest about my own wounds, I can help other women like me to heal. Maybe I can love the terrified, knocked-up woman in the Bible Belt who believes the best worst lies our society has ever told, better than any conservative talk show host ever could.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound. It’s naive to think we will fix this mess for the unborn overnight and deprogram men and women plugged into 50 years of slick, well-packaged lies. Slavery was legal in the U.S. for over 200 years before we fought a war to end it. And it was another 100 years before we ended state-sanctioned racism.

When it comes to the issue of defending innocent life, I know it’s hard to be patient. This is a clear battle of good vs. evil for many on the right, but you need allies like me – the former “safe, legal, and rare” pro-choicers who are afraid to come out of the shadows. Afraid to become a political prop in the culture wars, but willing to do the quiet missionary work in our back yards.

I hope for the day future progressives look back in horror at today’s progressives fighting to keep abortion on demand. I hope for the day the New York Times publishes the pro-life version of the 1619 Project. Maybe they’ll call it the “1973 Project,” “whose mission is to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of abortion and the contribution of the pro-life movement at the very center of our national narrative.”

Until that day, I want to help these women to be braver than me. To see beyond their impossible tomorrow. If I had allowed someone the chance to help me be brave, I might not have had the same successful career, but I would have a 20-year-old son or daughter in whom to invest this unexplained overflow in my heart.
