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.

It's amazing to see just how strongly many LGBT+ Americans are allied with Palestine in the Israel-Palestine conflict because the Palestinians aren't exactly pro-LGBTQ.

Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz decided to go into the West Bank to ask people on the streets of the Palestinian territories to explain their views firsthand. What he discovered was a shocking and even violent intolerance for the LGBT+ community.

Ami joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to share a sample of his eye-opening footage and the stunning reactions he received from pro-Palestinian (and vehemently anti-Isreal) LGBT+ Americans.

On direct orders from President Joe Biden, the Department of Homeland Security has released 79,652 migrants into the United States in just the last month after they were detained for illegally crossing the southern border. This brings the total number of illegals that have been caught and released into the United States on Biden's watch to 1.335 million people.

"At this pace, the ones that we catch and release — not the ones that we didn't catch — [will total] 3.5 million illegal immigrants in the United States in [Biden's] first term," said Glenn Beck on the radio program.


Biden’s border crisis is getting EVEN WORSE | #shortsyoutu.be

Perhaps these shocking statistics had something to do with the Biden administration's quiet approval of a plan to complete a portion of former President Donald Trump's border wall in southern Arizona.

On Thursday, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the completion of the U.S.- Mexico border wall in Arizona’s "Yuma Sector," despite Biden's oft-repeated promise that "not another foot" of Trump's wall would be constructed while he is president.

A Department of Homeland Security announcement cited "immediate life and safety risks" for migrants attempting to cross into the United States illegally as well as the first responders and agents working in the area "where there is a risk of drownings and injuries from falls."

Interestingly, mainstream media outlets seem to have suddenly seen the light when it comes to the actual function of a wall. Yes, walls provide security and help keep people safe. Biden's border walls "will better protect migrants who can get hurt slipping down a slope or drown walking through a low section of the Colorado River," according to NBC News.

But people on social media noticed more than a slight discrepancy in the way news about the border wall was framed under President Trump.

In 2020, NBC News said "President Trump's border wall endangered ecosystems and sacred sites." But on Friday, they said closing the gaps in the wall "won’t be much of a deterrent," according to Arizona environmentalist Myles Traphagen who has been "mapping ecological damage left by border wall construction" under former President Trump.

"Biden had pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction, but the administration later agreed to some barriers, citing safety," AP News reported.

"In addition to posing 'safety and life hazard risks for migrants,' the [D]epartment [of Homeland Security] said the gaps in the wall presented 'life and safety' risks to first responders in the area," reported CNN.

"Completion of the wall was at the top of former President Donald Trump’s agenda, and border security remains a potent issue for candidates of both parties going into this year’s primary elections. President Joe Biden halted new wall construction after he took office, but he has since made closing the gaps just south of Yuma a priority," said NBC News.

Earlier this week, CNN wrote an ugly, baseless trash piece titled “An 'imposter Christianity' is threatening American democracy” that argued American Christianity is being overrun by radical "white Christian nationalists" and supported that premise with far-left thinkers and biased New York Times best-sellers.

BlazeTV's Glenn Beck said the article was so bad, it made his "eyes bleed." So, on the radio program Thursday, Glenn debunked it all in an epic takedown of CNN's lies — and he brought all the facts from history that prove "everything CNN is contending here is wrong."

As many Americans fear a coming recession, the Biden administration has conveniently decided to say that we can't trust the conventional definition of "recession." Instead, we'll just have to wait until after the midterm elections to know for sure. But that's hardly the first time the left has redefined a word or phrase as part of its terrifyingly Orwellian "strategy" to control language for political purposes.

Glenn Beck posted a list of terms the left is redefining under President Joe Biden alone.

People also reminded Glenn of a few more redefined words or phrases to add to his list:


And don't forget Asian Murder Hornets and Monkeypox:


On the radio program, Glenn Beck ran through an extensive list of other simple terms the left is redefining to fit its narrative, just as the minions of Big Brother in George Orwell's "1984" used "newspeak" to further their totalitarian propaganda.
