Glenn Beck: A pivot in America's history

Learn more about the 8/28 Rally...

GLENN: Last week five prayers were answered at one time, and please mark on your calendar 8/28 and also 8/27. I have told you that on Friday, the 27th, we were going to be doing something spectacular. I will tell you this, that we had one thing planned. We had RFK stadium all ready to go, we had this giant fireworks thing that we were going to do and this whole program, and we just couldn't get it right. We just kept — we didn't, we didn't secure RFK because it just, it just wouldn't fit. It just wouldn't fit, it just wouldn't fit.

Something happened last week that is coming together in a miraculous sort of way that I believe we're going to announce on 8/27. We'll give you details. And then hopefully at 8/28 will be unveiled at the Lincoln Memorial as well. It has — I don't want to — I want to make sure this is accurate. I just talked to one of the guys who was with me and he believes this hasn't happened for 234 years. Would you say that this is something that hasn't happened since then?

PAT: Yeah, not that I know of.

GLENN: This is — and if it comes through, and I have handshakes from everyone, if it comes through, it is a pivot point in this country's history. It is something black, white, yellow, brown, it doesn't matter. It is all about character and it is uniting. When I — I had a conversation this weekend. I got a phone call actually while I was on a boat fishing in the river in Driggs, Idaho. I'm out by the Grand Tetons and the phone rings and it's a call from somebody who is — I couldn't not take the call. And when I told this individual what I thought we had put together and wanted to ask him if he wanted to be involved, he said, holy cow; really? It is something you will want to witness. History in the making. A historic event. Do not miss it. Washington D.C. August 28th. I ask for your continued prayers and I — God knows what I'm talking about. Ask Him for — ask Him for His divine providence and the finger of the Lord to appear. So far — and I can't wait to share this with you. So far His — it is only through divine providence. It is really only through divine providence that this is happening so far. I ask you to continue to pray like you've never prayed before because I tell you, I didn't know when we were first — when we first started this, I didn't know what we were — where we were headed. It's one of those things that you're just like, okay, Lord, you want me to walk down this road, I'll walk down this road. Now I see it, and I see how it has come together one piece at a time. And it is, only through divine providence I think this could happen. So keep this in your prayers. Keep this event in your prayers.

I also think that is why you are seeing the left organize beyond your wildest imagination against this event. They are saying now, we've got to have more people there than — you know what? Every American is welcome. And just like Martin Luther King ‑‑ I just keep thinking, I just know this to be true — I believe Martin Luther King, his message is right, and it has been perverted. And one of his messages, one of the things that he strongly believed in was you put these two images side by side, you put the racists next to the beaten down man and America will see and they will choose the right side. Let me tell you this. I believe that to be true. Just like Martin Luther King, just like you, just like George Washington, just like really I think every average American, you believe in the decency of the American people. If people want to come and protest this event, they are going to be so unbelievably exposed. You can come and stand with us. That's why I ask you, don't bring signs. Bring your children, please. Don't bring signs. Bring your children. They can stand shoulder to shoulder with us. Once they see what we are doing, once they see what this event is, they are going to be so exposed as nothing but haters. August 28th, Washington, D.C. Please join us as we turn the page in American history.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
