GLENN: I am just watching the video of what is happening in our country and I almost said I can't believe it. But I can. It is the beginning of what I have been warning was coming our way for a very long time. And I cannot impress upon all those involved: Peace. Do not do anything stupid. And I know how difficult that is. Believe me. We just have to be extraordinarily careful. Last night I wrote on Twitter I am an imperfect messenger and I have been going over in my mind in the last two months all of the stupid stuff that I have done in my life. All of the things that with hindsight just ‑‑ let me put it this way: You know how we spent most of our life saying, "Oh, it doesn't matter what we do?" We're about to find out, oh, yes, it does. Oh, yes, it does. And it is hard to bridge the gap between sanity and insanity. It is hard to bridge the gap between the life that we have lived for so long and the life we're about to go into. Do you remember when I said to you last year, when I said to you, "Please, the only thing that will make any difference, the only thing that will matter will be your word. Don't defile your are honor, your integrity, your word. Let your yes mean yes. Your no mean no. Values and value." If you didn't hear that message a year ago, I ask that you hear it now. I don't know exactly ‑‑ I don't know how to do my job anymore. I don't. I don't. I was thinking about it last night and thought, maybe ‑‑ I've been saying for two some years, when people start to say these things, when people, when there's somebody else willing to say these things, willing to do these things, I can go away. I can be done. And I can just go back and just do what I want to do. I'm not this guy. I've told you this for a long time. I'm not this guy. I don't want to be this guy. I don't like walking down the street anymore. I walk down the street and it's either somebody who is so gracious and so nice, or just hates my guts. It's not what I ever wanted to do. But I found myself in a position where I thought I have to do it because it's what I believe. I believe that so many people now are waking up and they are feeling the same thing. You don't want to do it. You don't want to say these things. You don't want to go to these town hall meetings. You don't want to believe the things that you're beginning to believe. It was easier a year ago when I played the clip for you about Barack Obama saying that he was going to build a well‑funded civilian defense force.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We cannot to continue to rely only on just the military to achieve the national security objectives we set. We have to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well‑funded.

GLENN: It was easier then to say, "No!" Then as I started to interview people that used to work at ACORN and it started to dawn on me that ACORN was the beginning of it. It is an ACORN. It is a seed. It's a seed that's going to grow into a mighty oak. Have you ever listened to the name, the acronym, what is it Action ‑‑ what is the acronym for ACORN, Pat, do you know?

PAT: American Community Organizers Reform now.

GLENN: That's the dumbest name I think I have ever heard. They came up with ACORN then found the words to the name to be able to make it into the acronym. Why? Why would they want an acorn? Because it's something that's small that grows into a mighty oak. The mighty oak. SCIU is part of ACORN. They have infiltrated now Americor. Americor has been a good organization. The people in Americor, many of the people in ACORN, they don't ‑‑ they don't know. They don't see it. It's a hostile takeover. What has happened to these organizations, at least Americor is what is happening to our country. It is being fundamentally transformed. When I said that they were building a civilian force, nobody wanted to believe it. I still don't want to believe it. But when you see The Drudge Report today where the AFL‑CIO has come out and has promised to counter anyone speaking out at these meetings that they would counter anybody that was having problems at these town hall meetings, you ask yourself; is that not a civilian force? When you see what's happening across the country, where the Democrats actually have the balls to stand up and say, "This isn't a grassroots effort." And they hold people out of these meetings until the SCIU and ACORN members, again the roots of the civilian force, go in and take the seeds. What is happening to our country? You know, when I said SCIU and ACORN, these were the brown shirts. People said that's crazy. And I hope to God it is. But you tell me what they are if they're not thugs enforcing the will of the masters in Washington. Be very careful, because the things that I have told you on this program were coming are here. We are in the most dangerous point in our republic, I believe, since the Civil War. We may be in the most dangerous place ever, because our people are different. Our people are not as connected to God as we once were. Beyond that, the world is wildly unstable. I told you, what was it, the beginning of July or the end of June, that I had one of the first English translations of a book that is being published in America in about two weeks. It's called "The Coming Insurrection" these are communists that are saying attack the families. You must disintegrate the family. You must disintegrate society. You must disintegrate. All of it must be destroyed. That's happening with the extreme left. There are those on the extreme right that also would like to destroy everything so they can rebuild. A revolution is not the problem. The problem is never revolution. The problem is who takes control of the revolution? Anybody says that they want violence and they want a revolution. Back them up off of that. Because where is George Washington? Where is the man on the stamp? If you don't have a strong man of real character, you won't survive, because someone else will take that role. I can give you a list of bad people on the left and the right that would love that control. I can't give you a single name of a man that is modeled after George Washington. Not one. But he is here. But somewhere he is here. We need more ‑‑ we need more time. We need more time. There's great, powerful ‑‑ there is great and powerful hope. There is great and powerful hope. There are miracles that you will witness in your lifetime. Great, grand, mighty, powerful miracles that you will witness. But we must be prepared. We must be peaceful. We must be armed with the truth. We must be armed with the truth.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:
