GLENN: Restoring Honor is our goal on 828. This is something I have potentially not talked an awful lot about what it is, for a couple of reasons. One, I honestly didn't know exactly how we were going to pull it off and what we were going to pull off until about a month or month and a half ago. And now, I just don't -- I just don't care to tip my hand. I ask that you would come and bring your family, bring your children, this is going to be a historic day, it is going to be a day that I think will shock those naysayers, those people on the far left, those people who think we are going to dishonor -- I can't believe they are actually printing these things now -- dishonor the military, dishonor the civil rights movement, it is about Restoring Honor, and we can learn an awful lot from our military, the honorable men and women of our military and we can learn an awful lot about honor of those who stood or sat down or linked arms. I mean, anything that you think that you're going through now, and you're worried about, et cetera, et cetera, you have not taken a billy club to the head. None of us have. These guys did learn, restoring hon. It is really an amazing, amazing event. Trying to bring people together, and make a commitment to be the best people that we can be. It's in Washington, D.C. on August 28th, it is a rather expensive event, and I love -- as well, the media, that is printing, this is a promotion for this or that, you go ahead. I invite you to come and cover the rally. Please, cover it. Let's have the whole world see the message of August 28th. You'll know that what it is, not from the media coverage, but by the lack of it on August 29th. If it is what they say it is, it will be everywhere August 29th. You have to experience this yourself. Now, we have asked you to make a donation to this, all of the -- all of -- any dollar that is not spent goes to the special operations foundation, which these guys are the -- they do all of the -- you know, special forces, anybody that is hurt, anybody that is killed in the line of duty, taking care of the family, it is really, truly an amazing organization. The special operations warrior foundation, it gets all of the proceeds in and above what it cost to put this thing on. We have had some amazing people step to the plate, and help us. And is Jerry on the phone? Jerry Falwell is on the phone with us from liberty university and he has just made a donation with the university that I think is amazing. Hi, Jerry, how are you, sir?

JERRY: Hello, is this Dr. Glenn Beck?

GLENN: Yes, it is and I'll be giving dental exams a little later on today.

JERRY: I was congratulating you on the honorary doctorate that our board of trustees conferred, for helping to bring this country back to its founding principles it's well deserved.

GLENN: Thank you very much, sir, I truly appreciate it. And you guys have been so very helpful, and I'm looking forward to the time that we're going to spend working on projects on trying to educate people from coast to coast on who we really, truly are. I want to thank you first of all for your donation to the 8-28 event. Can you explain what it is?

JERRY: We've donated a four year scholarship to Liberty University for eight semesters beginning the fall of 2010, and this is -- we're doing this because when we read how the Restoring Honorary is to recognize our First Amendment rights, honor the service members who fight to protect our freedoms, that's just something that's dear to what we believe, and we have over 15,000 members of the armed forces who are serving right now who are students in our online program. So we have a special office that services them, we match whatever assistance the government those men and women of the armed forces, and it's just because we believe it's so important, what they're doing. The sacrifice they're making. And we also donated an online scholarship to liberty university online, for those who cannot relocate to Lynchburg, Virginia, that will cover an undergraduate degree or a graduate degree.

GLENN: How much does the online run? It's 80,000 for the four year resident, what does the online run?

JERRY: It costs about 36,800 from start to finish to complete an undergraduate degree, online, or about 19,800 to complete a graduate degree, because it doesn't take as many years, but it's -- that's what's being auctioned off right now to help you with what you're doing in August, and to --

GLENN: Right now, the four year resident tuition scholarship is $27,500. I'm not even sure, do you know, Pat, when does this auction end do you know?

JERRY: 11 more days I think.

GLENN: 11 more days, so it's another week, and we were down Pat and I were down when I gave the commencement address, we were down at liberty and I have to tell you, really not only impressed with the campus and what you guys are doing, but also I met many of the professors, many of the people that are putting your -- you know, your whole curriculum and everything your whole philosophy together every year, and it is really impressive what you guys are doing. I mean it's --

JERRY: A lot of people think it's just a Bible school, but it's a liberal arts university, it's fully accredited, 140 different undergraduate and graduate programs, with 63,000 students now. We just passed Ohio state to become the 7th largest university, four year university in the United States. So it's --

GLENN: That's amazing.

JERRY: -- because of our commitment to the founding principles to the Judeo-Christian ethic, and it's an exciting place to be.

GLENN: The law school was wildly impressive. Tell me --

JERRY: I was in Washington yesterday meeting with the ABA, it was accredited in record time, it's a fairly new law school, but it's -- those graduates are passing the bar, their bar passage rate is rivaling institutions that have been in existence for generations, and we're just so proud of what's happened here with these conservative young people.

GLENN: You have the mock courtrooms, and if I'm not mistaken this is why it was accredited in record speed, is because you have the mock courtrooms where you're not just teaching the book, you're actually teaching them how to apply it in courtrooms, and you even have the mark Supreme Court room.

JERRY: We emphasize on skills and actual -- the more practical aspects of practicing law, and that did help us attain accreditation much faster. But the courtroom you're referring to is an exact replica of the U.S. Supreme courtroom. So it's a great place for students to learn, and to get the experience they need. And I remember when I finished law school, they -- where I attended University of Virginia, it was mostly -- mostly taught theory, and I had to learn all the practical aspects of practice in law from other lawyers, but we've taken a different approach here, and it's -- it's one that's proven to be very successful.

GLENN: Jerry, I have to speak about something we've spoken about privately and I hope you don't mind, but when we first met and I went down, you asked me to give the commencement speech and I -- when I first met you, I thanked you for that and I said I know you must be getting heat because you're an evangelical in a Christian college and I am a Mormon, and those don't seem to go hand in hand with a lot of people in their minds. And I know you took heat for that, and I thank you for that. And you told me if you don't mind me sharing this, that you know what -- you know what time of day it is, and that we all have to kind of stand together hare and put our differences aside. That doesn't you endorse my faith or whatever, and that's fine. But we have to unite on things that are big, because we are in trouble, here.

JERRY: If we don't hang together we'll hang separately, I mean, that's what my father believed when he formed Moral Majority, was an organization of Mormon's, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, people of no faith. And there are bigger issues now, we can argue about theology later after we save the country. And I really think that we really do need to stand together, it's a critical time in our nation's history, and it's -- I met with a banker this morning, and he was telling me how all the new regulations, how much they're going to cost his bank, and how he's going to have to pass those costs onto the consumers, and he's going to explain how the Congress is hiding how they're paying for this new banking reform bill by taking money out of the federal reserve, and just some scary things that public doesn't even know about. But it's a frightening time in our history, and we appreciate greatly what you're doing to bring all these different groups together, Peter Littleback was so impressive with his book about George Washington, Sacred Fire, and when I got back to Lynchburg after become on your show. And we left my dad's office just like it was when he passed away three years ago, and I didn't notice it before but he had Peter Littleback's book that he purchased three or four years ago open on his desk when he passed away. But you're bringing all these types of people together on your show every day, and it's creating a partnership between groups that may have never talked to each other otherwise, and I think nothing could be more important at this stage of our history

GLENN: God bless you Jerry, we'll talk to you again and I thank you so much for your amazing contribution to the 8-28 rally, and we'll see you again my friend.

JERRY: Good news, yesterday was the first day that Glenn Beck Show was on the radio here on Lynchburg on WLNI, 105.9 so we can finally pick you up over the air waves.

GLENN: That's great. Thank you, I appreciate it. God bless you. Jerry Falwell from Liberty University. This is a university where your kids are safe, and your kids can actually learn, and not be filled with a bunch of nonsense. Liberty University, if you want to bid on that charity auction for 828, $80,000 value it's at 27,000 now for a four year full residence scholarship. Check it out at GlennBeck.com/828.

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?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
