Glenn Beck: Firm Reliance

GLENN: The founders at the end of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson didn't write, "And we have faith, and we'll mutually pledge to each other our..." didn't say that. With firm reliance on divine providence we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor.

Here's what I want you to do. In all things that we talk about, prove me wrong. Prove me wrong. I'd love to be wrong. Prove these things to be true or false in your own life. Do not take my word for it. Don't take anybody's word for it. When you read a story in the New York Times, the Huffington Post, The Blaze, the Glenn Beck newsletter, do not read it and take it as fact. We try our best, but there are some sources that don't try their best. We do. But it makes no difference if you say, well, Glenn Beck told me that's true. What? A preacher can't give you faith. Only you can. The press and special interests are not going to give you faith, they're not going to give you hope, and they're not going to give you charity. I won't, either. But the media will tell you and politicians will imply that Americans are stupid, incapable, gullible, need a shepherd. They can't do it themselves. They're like sheep. "We need more Washington, we need more programs." They'll tell you that the biggest day of charity is April 15th. That's the biggest lie of them all. I won't tell you those lies. I'll just tell you what I believe and what I have found to be true and how I arrived at that conclusion. You may not arrive at the same conclusion. I challenge you to find your own conclusion. But I also challenge you to do this: I want you to start dismissing the press and those sources that you have found to be so untrue. Don't argue with them anymore. Don't let them bother you anymore. Remind me if it starts to bother me. Just, you know what they are? They're Biff Tannen: What are you looking at, butthead? They're so wrong, I expect them at some point, our foes, to come out and say, "Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here." Really? That's who you're dealing with, Biff Tanner, or Tannen. What's his name? Tannen? Tannen or Tanner? Biff Tannen. We can argue about the lies, but we will never get to the truth by arguing over lies. We won't defeat the back room, back‑stabbing power politics of the past. You can't defeat them. You have to dismiss them. You? You I'm going to dismiss now. That's what we have to say. Just dismissing. No harm, no foul, just dismiss, you're done here. Who are you to say? I just have the fire of the truth on my side. That's really pretty much all it is. The more we argue about our rights being lost or stolen, "They are not." "Yes, they are." "No, they're not." The more time we lose. The door is being closed. We have to start arguing about our responsibilities. And really not even arguing. Just deciding what our responsibilities are. Our first responsibility is this: Vote. Vote. Get involved and vote. Find something that you believe in. Find the truth. Put your faith in somebody. They may violate it. But who knows? You might find a higher truth with that person and it gave you a little more faith. Get involved. It's our responsibility. It is our responsibility to give until it hurts, to inform ourselves before we try to inform anybody else. It's history. It doesn't belong to those at Yale or Harvard or Columbia. It doesn't belong to those at school‑lastic. It's your history. It is our responsibility to raise our kids are values and principles. And to teach them about what our founders said were nature's laws and nature's god. Pick up your God‑given responsibilities. Stop talking about your rights. Start picking up your responsibilities and your rights will be restored automatically. That's a pretty hefty claim. How does that work? Well, if we're taking care of each other, if we're actually tithing 10%, all of us, and I don't care if it's at your church. Give it to idiot but, you know, give it to PETA. Give it to something you believe in. If we are all giving until it hurts ‑‑ we're the most charitable nation on the planet. If we are starting to give our money to things that help people who are homeless, help people who are unemployed, help our neighbors. Don't give it to some faceless organization that's going to ship it some place else. We got problems here. And we have the ability to take care of each other. If you don't do it, well, the government will have to. There's no ifs, ands, and buts about it. The one thing that they have, the one thing that they have, and I happen to believe in the dark forces. Let's call is the dark Sith, the one thing the dark Sith or Darth Vader has is a little bit of truth. Satan always uses a little bit of truth. No matter what it is. He uses something that is true. And then it's perverted. So what is, what is, politically speaking what does the opposition have that is true? People are suffering. People will go hungry. People don't have jobs. Those are true. And so they follow that truth with, "And the government has to fix it." No! That's the falsehood. Mixed with truth. And so what they do immediately is say, "Well, you don't care about people." Yes, yes, yes, I do. I give 10% of my income. And if we are all giving 10% of your income, as a minimum, and you have to have faith that you'll be able to make it. I know that's hard. Pay it first. Pay it first. And have faith. You will get more truth by doing it. And you will have greater faith. If we all give, if we all help each other, the government will say, what are you doing? We don't need this program; we don't want your program. We will have the moral authority to be able to say small government! People are suffering, until our neighbors join arm in arm and take care of our neighbors who are suffering. Faith, hope, equals truth and charity. It is the answer.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
