GLENN: We were talking before we went to break a minute ago about the passage of this healthcare bill. Nancy Pelosi is now all of a sudden for it. You know, she's like, you know, that Senate bill, that's pretty sexy, I'm thinking that's pretty good. Of course, it's the fastest way to a single payer healthcare plan. It just is. It will collapse. There's just no way around it. It can't be done. But they're not going to tell you that. This bill will pass before Christmas. I believe they will pass this. What day is Christmas? What day of the week is Christmas?

PAT: 25th.

STU: 25th.

GLENN: Thank you. Oh, is it on the 25th this year?

PAT: Two weeks from today. Two weeks from today.

STU: Yeah, 25th. And then the New Year's is the 1st.

PAT: Of

GLENN: I don't have that. I'm questioning then, I think everybody goes to, everybody will pretty much go to vacation, what, a week, a week from today? I mean, not everybody will, but a lot of people will just go

STU: A lot of people will take that Christmas week off, sure.

GLENN: It will happen a week, you know, the Saturday, a week from tomorrow up to Christmas. Find out when they leave. It's going to happen. I think they are going to pass this thing. While everybody is nestled all snug in their beds with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. It will lessen the blow, they will think, because we'll be gone for three weeks, two weeks. And it will just be, "That's old news, yes, we passed it. The president signed it. What? It was a Christmas Gift to the American people."

Here's what I want to ask you. Look at who's guiding us right now. You know, they came out, Creamer came out yesterday. We told you about Robert Creamer. He is a guy who wrote a progressive book that David Axelrod says is a blueprint for the progressive victories. They have used it did you see the show last night, Pat?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I mean, I showed, in the monologue I showed exactly what they say and what they're doing. And it is Robert Creamer's plan.

PAT: I thought it was amazing.

GLENN: Amazing.

PAT: The Creamer plan that we just have to say everybody's for this. Everybody's you know, there's total, it's just like what they're doing on climate change. It's total consensus, everybody wants it, we've always wanted it. And then the montage.

GLENN: Of all the people saying that.

PAT: All the Democrats saying that.

GLENN: We played montages last night on the TV show. Do we have the audio? Can we get the audio to play them on the radio?

PAT: That's what I'm starting to look for now.

GLENN: We played these montages last night where, okay, this is Creamer said, "Oh, I don't have any power; they are not doing this." And I said, okay, here's what he says to do and here's what people are doing. And we showed them, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And it is I mean, some of them are verbatim from the book, verbatim!

PAT: I think it was John Kerry that was exactly.

GLENN: Exactly word for word from the book. All right, the reason why I bring him up is because here's a convicted felon. The progressives are all excusing him because, well, he was just stealing money from the bank, you know, for a good cause. What? We have ACORN. I'm asking you for the character of the people. You have Van Jones. You have communications director that, she thinks of Mao most often. Look at the character of the people. John Holdren, our science czar. If there's a population explosion, I can help you reduce the population, through sterilants in drinking water and forced abortions. Now, he said, "Well, that was at a time when we thought the population explosion, that was in the Seventies and it was a time of the..." but he's never said that it was a crazy idea, never. He says the population thing didn't happen. Not that even if the population thing did happen, we shouldn't put sterilants in drinking water! Look at the character of these people, and I ask you and this is controversial, but why stop now? Do you believe that America has been the greatest gift to man? Over its period of 233 years, we have made colossal mistakes but is it a divine nation, a divine idea, a divine idea the Constitution, would you say that it has done more good than any other nation in the history of planet Earth? We've made mistakes. If you are a God fearing person and I am if you believe good and evil which I do this nation is not going to fade away. This nation is far too powerful. It is far too powerful of a tool in the hands of evil. I have news for you. I believe, because we are a powerful, powerful nation, we're not going to fade away. We're either going to get better and be good or we are going to be a force for great and powerful evil. A powerful tool is only destroyed if there's nothing else to do. But if the opposition side, the side of evil, can turn that and use that and distort that power and distort that source of leadership and use it for the dark side, I mean, I hate to get all Darth Vader on you but that's really who we are. We're either going to be a force for good or we're going to be a force for evil. Let's just hope in the end we turn out to be Luke who might have started losing his hand and everything else and had some decisions. But in the end he stood and said, I am not going to go there. Let's just hope we're that and not the Darth Vader character.

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.
