Glenn Beck: What does it all mean?


Related: How newspapers covered the 8/28 Restoring Honor event

GLENN: We're keeping a scrapbook of all of the newspaper articles of everything leading up and afterwards. If you could send them to us, we sure would love to see yours. Also there's coverage on all of the front pages that we had access to this weekend at GlennBeck.com. There's also a place where you can upload your photos. So we have a central place. This made history this weekend. This will be in American history books, as I told you it would be, and I have something that I cannot wait to tell you about. In fact, I couldn't wait. I found out right before I went to bed on Saturday night and because a phone call came in and I actually went out and everybody was going into their bedrooms and everybody was tired. And I got everybody up, told them the news, and I can't wait to tell you. I hope I can be able to tell you maybe by the end of the show, if not sometime by the end of the week. But this made history this week.

Now, what does it mean? Because if it's just another, as the media says, it's just a tea party rally, if it's just another tea party rally, well, then that doesn't mean anything. Because gathering people in the public square to protest something doesn't mean anything. It shows that there are people that are willing to stand, but to do what? That was the message that nobody has covered. With firm reliance on divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. That is the key.

So here's what I want you to do in the next 40 days. Remember the phrase that came from Thomas Jefferson. It changed my life. Question with the quote, the full quote is, when it comes to religion, above all things fix reason firmly in her seat and question with boldness even the very existence of God. For if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear.

That changed my life. Fix reason firmly in her seat. And question with boldness even the very existence of God. Find out what you believe. Don't go to church because you've always gone to church. It's not enough. You must have a personal relationship. You must know that he exists. You must know who you are in relation to him. When times are when times are troubled I'm almost quoting the Beatles here. I'm trying hard not to say Mother Mary comes to me. But when times are troubled, you must know that everything is going to be okay. Because he cares. And you must trust him.

Remember I have said for the last two years, there's going to come a time when you are going to feel, you're going to hear inside yourself, turn around, go the other way, you're in danger. And I've told you for two years, please work on listening to that inner voice, please, please. You're going to need that you must exercise that muscle. Now is the time. I can't emphasize enough. You must work on that. You must know him personally. Because if you know him, then you can have firm reliance. With firm reliance on divine providence. Remember, that's that the Lord will help you along the way if you're living within His God's not on your side. He's not on my side. We must align ourselves so we can be on His side. And then you are in the flow of life and things just coincidentally happen that help keep moving you forward. That's divine providence. It's not, God is on my side and I cannot be stopped. That's arrogance. That will get you killed. With firm reliance on divine providence. That also implies that once you know it, you know that you have a purpose. When I say that I believe that it's been my job to tell you these things, you must understand, that doesn't make me special in any way. I don't believe that makes me special. Quite honestly it's a curse most of my time. I'm sorry I don't it is a blessing to be in service, but it's hard times. And it will be with you as well. But all is well, my friend. It is all going to be more than good. You are in his service. You were born for a reason. There's a reason you're here. There's a reason you were born at this time. There's a reason you were born having the skill set that you have. Now, you may not think that you have any real skill set.

A story that I didn't have time to tell that I wanted to tell so badly on the air or on the stage is a story about and I think I may have told it on Friday. Stop me if I've told this, Stu. But the story of my friend Keith Ablow, where a third grade teacher stopped a guy from killing his family. Now, how did that happen? He remembered what the teacher had said when he got in trouble and said, you know, everybody says you're a bad boy. You're not a bad boy. When he was in third grade, he got into trouble, and the teacher could have just flown off the handle. But instead pulled him aside and said, you know, Johnny, you work, you work so hard and here you are doing this and it's because people say you're a bad boy. But you're not. You're good. You're a good boy. 30 years later he's about to kill someone and he stops because he hears her words. That's not who you are. You're a good boy. You may not think you have any skills. You may not think you have a purpose. I'll bet you that that third grade teacher had no idea. She might have died at the end of her life and said, I didn't accomplish anything. She saved lives! Just by doing what she was supposed to do! By not flying off the handle at a kid who was a bad kid all the time and getting into trouble. Instead of chastising, she hugged him and said, you're not that boy. She saved lives. Do not discount the role you play. Do not look to others and say, well, they have a bigger voice, they have a bigger platform. You may be the most important person on the planet at this time, and you may not accomplish anything in your head. But you are the key. You just have to listen to that voice inside and then do what he asks you to do. Unless he's telling you to kill someone. Then that's a voice that needs to be medicated. Firm reliance and divine providence. You know who he is. You can count on him. You know you are going to be okay, and you know your relationship with him, that you have a purpose. With firm reliance on divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives. Well, that's MLK, that's Lincoln, that's all the veterans. But it's also George Washington, who didn't die. He just gave everything to his country. He served and served and served and served and served and then served some more. And then he went home and then they knocked on his door and he answered the door and he said, have I not yet done enough for my country? The answer is no. And he got onto his horse and he served, and he served, and he served. We're going to have to give things up to serve, but it's good. We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes. It means we must do the hard things now. We may not be able to retire at 65. We may not be able to go and live our dreams. We may not be able to have that, that house or that car or whatever it is. We may the not be able to afford X, Y or Z, but that's okay. Because we will sacrifice our fortunes so our children don't have to pay for our lifestyle today. It's immoral to stick them with this bill. It's immoral.

As a father of a special needs child, I know when my daughter had strokes at birth, I got down on my knees and I said, Lord, give it to me. Please, I'll take it on. Please let her have a life. Please. Where are those parents now? I'll tell you where they were this last weekend. They were in Washington, D.C. You know and I know. We will all take the hard hit for our kids, our fortunes, our benefits, our perks, our soft lifestyle. And I know a lot of people say I have worked and I've struggled my whole life. I know that. I know that. I know. But you are going to be asked to struggle a little more not only for your children but for your grandchildren. Tithe 10%. I introduced the Black Robe Regiment. These people are in trouble. They are in trouble. The media hasn't noticed them yet quite honestly because the adversary hasn't noticed them yet. We're not battling flesh and blood. The great thing is darkness does not understand light. They have no idea. It has no idea where we're headed. And that's good. But understand once it does, the very gates of hell are going to open up. These people are going to be challenged in court, they are going to be challenged with the IRS, in their own pulpits they are going to be challenged. People will leave their churches because they are going to start saying, look, there are certain absolutes, there are certain things. All men are created and created equally, and they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, which means you can't take them away. You can't destroy them. These rights are my right to life, and that means all of it, my right to life. You do not diminish life at the end, you do not diminish life in the inside. My right to life, my right to liberty, which means you can't just pick me up. You can't do these things. I have a right. It's given from God. It's inalienable, which means you cannot take it away. And pursuit of happiness: I have a right to keep the sweat from my own brow. I have a right to dream. I have a right to pursue my dreams. I do not have a right to success. I have a right to pursue what will make me and my family happy. That's what they are going to preach. And if Americans understand those things, everything else will solve itself. You must tithe because these people are going to be in trouble. They are going to come under attack. You must seek these people out. You must seek these rabbis, these priests, these pastors. If they are teaching you about politics, that's another story. Run from them if they do. If they say vote for a Republican or a Democrat or independent, run from them.

And the last one is our sacred honor, and that is truth. Tell the truth in all things. Tell the truth when it hurts you. Tell the truth especially when it hurts you. Tell the truth at your own peril. Tell the truth. Stand in the blaze of the truth. If you are standing in the truth, nothing can hurt you. You will be behind the shield of the Lord. Stand in the truth. And pass these things on to your children. And we will not just survive. We will prevail.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
