Glenn Beck: Faith, Hope and Charity





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

On Friday we unveiled these posters.

I always felt they would play a big role in the coming year, but I just wasn't sure how. But as this administration inexplicably saddles the country with more debt, more entitlement programs and even more spending, it's clear: What we are becoming is not who we are.

We've never been a nation that jams it through. We've never been a nation that believes in a free lunch. We've never been a nation that asks for a handout instead of a hand up.

This is who we are:

Hope: What other country on the planet — better yet, what other country in the history of this planet — has inspired so many people to risk life and limb to get there just for the chance at a better life? There's not even a guarantee. People don't take their families on a raft, through shark-infested waters, because they are searching for a handout.

You've heard it a million times: They are coming for the hope of a better life. They know that in America all you need is a dream and anything's possible. Last I checked no one is floating their way just at the chance to get into Cuba. Hope has always come from America.

How did it provide it?

Faith: Samuel Adams felt America was put together by divine providence — all of them did. They relied on it. God played an instrumental role; He was the one we had to have faith in. George Washington said: "It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor."

Charity: When there is an earthquake or tsunami, when there is hunger and poverty, there is no other country in history that has been more charitable than America. Name the country more giving and more generous than America. France? Spain? Germany?

Faith, hope and charity: They are the essential teachings of Christ.

I said something a long time ago — way back when I was still living in the "Marxism has been discredited, there's no one left who believes that" fantasy land — I said that America could never be destroyed from the outside. I remember the day I said it because it was Sept. 11, 2001. Militarily there is no equal. If the world tried to attack us and we decided we weren't going to bother with "smart" bombs, we'd control the world in a heartbeat. The only way to destroy America is from the inside: Collapse our system; bring us to our knees financially.

Little did I know there were people already on the inside who actually want to do just that. But who would want to attack hope? Or charity? Who doesn't want that? Who would attack faith? OK, they've been coming after that one for quite some time now:

We can't sing Christmas carols anymore. Instead our kids learn about the wonders of the winter solstice

Can't have those evil 10 Commandments on the courthouse steps: "Thou shalt not commit murder" is just so controversial.

And of course, we can't have that offensive "God" word on my money

Who would spend time attacking these things? The overwhelming majority — religious or not — isn't really offended by the term "God," but the progressive left is. Funny, they are the same people attacking me (remember, I hate Jesus).

Progressives are fully aware that you must rot America from within in order to bring her down. It's been the plan the whole time: Make progress — baby steps — away from the Constitution. Why are we surprised by it now? And radical progressives are infecting America by deceiving unsuspecting people on their true intentions. We saw the defend education rallies. Who doesn't want to defend education? But spend 10 seconds browsing their site and you're suddenly in a Marxist hot-zone. They can't win people over to Marxism, so they resort to deception.

Back to the posters:

Why is George Washington hope? Because without the truth, it's false hope. President Obama is out there saying the worst is behind us:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Experts from across the political spectrum warned that if we did not act, we might face a second depression. So we acted — immediately and aggressively. And one year later, the worst of the storm has passed.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Really? Because I was reading the news today and saw that America has moved "substantially closer" to losing its AAA status. And things will "further deteriorate" before they start stabilizing. I'm not understanding how that's better.

Everyone knows the worst is not behind us. It's not difficult to see the current spending is unsustainable. We are on the brink and this president has taken already bloated government and he's trying to make it even bigger. It's like the fat lady I read about today who weights like 700 pounds and she's actually trying to get to 1,000 pounds. That's her goal. Why would you do that unless you wanted to hurt yourself? It makes no sense. That's America right now, except the radicals aren't admitting it's the goal.

What happens when everything comes tumbling down? Where's the hope come from then? This hope promised the worst was behind us. Now it's an emergency. Can you trust him? Name the institutions, besides the military, you can trust. The Senate? Democrats? Republicans? The EPA? Is there anything you believe in?

Hope comes from a belief in something. How can you have any hope if they are rotting everything from the inside? The truth must be restored.

Charity: What was one of the first things Barack Obama did in office? He tried to take away tax incentives on charity. He wanted to teach us how to be charitable. Really? Americans need a lesson on charity? That's odd, because even though being one of the most-taxed nations on the planet, we are also — bar none — the most-giving country that ever existed. We don't need that taught to us; we've got that down, thanks. Although maybe Joe Biden could use a lesson, given that he only donated 0.003 percent of his income in 2007. I'll put the progressive George Soros against the conservative philanthropist Jon Huntsman any day. One will die powerful and the other one will die penniless because he's doing what he chooses to do.

They are taking charity and rotting it from the inside.

In the end this is the answer, but it's also the disease, because if you change these faces to these: Faith with Al Gore; hope with Barack Obama and charity with Nancy Pelosi.

Against health care? Well, you must be against Sally Jerkinsenberg who was born with no kneecaps and no eyelids. She's constantly falling and then the dust goes right in her eyes. Why do you hate her? We just want to give her the right to health care.

Don't let that be lost on you: They are asking you to have faith in them, not God. Faith in government to be the grantor of rights. Two days before we celebrate the real savior's birthday, listen to this from Tom Harkin:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SEN. TOM HARKIN, D-IOWA: What this bill does is we finally take that step. As our leader said earlier, we take that step from health care as a privilege to health care as an inalienable right of every single American citizen.

And as I said before, this bill is not complete. I've used the analogy of a starter home in which we can add additions and enhancements as we go into the future. But like every right that we've ever passed the American people, we revisit it later on to enhance and build on those rights.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Tom, you don't have the power to grant people rights. You don't create them or enhance them. They are not yours. Let me show the Declaration of Independence: All men are created equal and endowed by their creator.

Who the hell do you think you are Congress? Last I checked you didn't create me. If you start depending on government to grant you rights, you've done two things: Turn the republic upside down and built handcuffs and a cage for you to live in. You will be completely slave to whatever the creator deems is best for "the collective."

What they are about to pass is not a tumor: You can try and cut this out but once this bill passes you won't be able to cut it out. It's a bloodstream disease; it's in our system — incurable. It's about to be in every cell of our bodies. That's why it's 2,300 pages filled with things like this on page 1557: Provisions for a "comparative effectiveness research" center in which panelists will have experience in a wide variety of areas, including "economics."

Wait, I thought the problem with health care in America was that it was all about money? This is a bean counter in Washington, one that you will be powerless over. They'll tell you what treatment you can and can't have.

America, this is the moment. The fundamental transformation of America is here.

I know you are busy. I know you have other things going on in your life. But I also know that this is still America. It was right before Christmas 1776, Washington had lost two thirds of his army. They were about to face a far superior army. They wanted to go home. Congress ran away. Washington's bold plan was to just go get them or be slaughtered. As everyone freaked out, Thomas Payne wrote in the follow-up to "Common Sense":

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: It is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated."

We're not tired. We're going to keep on fighting this thing. We know what this bill means and that it seeks to fundamentally transform America. We will fight it with everything in us — not with bullets, not with guns, but with faith, hope and charity.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
