Glenn Beck: 10 Million Watchdogs




Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

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.

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.
