Trade places with Glenn?

GLENN: We've got a lot to talk about and I got to tell you. Maybe it's because I have teenagers now. But I have little kids and I have teenagers and the minefield that is parenting is just relentless. Is anybody with me? It's just relentless. And when my daughter was sitting here over the weekend and she said she was learning about the Progressive movement and, you know, so we started going over the stuff that she was writing about and how, you know, -- who she was having to study and what was being said about it. And her teacher actually is fair. I mean, I talk to her a lot about her teacher, oh, believe me. And she's like, he'll listen to the other side. And she said, I don't think he really has an agenda. She said, I think I know where he stands on things but he's at least a fair guy, unlike some of the other ones that don't even know the history. And when she said to me, "I'm looking for a college" and she wants to teach history but she won't teach American history because of all of the bad things that have happened in our history, she broke my heart, absolutely broke my heart. There is no more jingoistic kind of household -- Stu, have you ever met anybody more jingoistic?

STU: Well, no, of course not. I mean, there are gigantic, gigantic "Buy bonds" posters all over your house.

GLENN: I mean, my house literally, when you walk into my house, I have three bond posters from World War II done by Norman Rockwell. They're, you know, the freedom of want and freedom, you know, freedom of worship and everything else. I have a gigantic American flag from -- it goes two stories, a gigantic American flag from the 1800s that was in, I can't remember, some battle or whatever. I mean, it's like you walk in and you're like, holy cow, am I in the Smithsonian? I'm like in the American wing of the Smithsonian.

STU: This is what's disturbing, though, is I feel like you're becoming a tortured soul. I feel like I -- no matter how much money you have, I wouldn't want to switch places with you because you come in here, you know, after a nice weekend and I enjoyed myself with my wife and I had a great time. You come in here like your soul has been crushed every Monday.

GLENN: No, I don't.

STU: Yes, you do.

GLENN: No, I don't.

STU: Your life is -- you're becoming a martyr.

GLENN: No.

STU: Yes. What do you mean? How can you deny it?

GLENN: I've got kids. I've got four kids. Anybody with four kids, tell me they don't crush the very life out of you. You have four kids, it's not like, "Let me put on the cross again." It's that you've got four kids. And the struggle that they're going through, the things that you want to teach them, the things that you regret not teaching them, the things that you wanted to do and somehow or another you didn't do are coming back at you. You know, the things that they're struggling with in their personal lives that you remember in school. You know, you think that there is some shore that they can wash up on where they're safe, some shelter. The only shelter that our kids have is home. That's it. That's it. There's no other place where they're not being fed garbage. They're being fed garbage -- I've got to tell you about this play we went to over the weekend. Hang on for this because it -- it's amazing what was spoon-fed to this audience. My daughter, the one who says "I don't want to learn American history, I don't want to teach American history," my daughter almost said out loud, "Oh, please, please give it a rest" on one of the last scenes. She said, Dad, it took almost everything in me to not say it. She said, it almost just came out, it was just such propaganda. It was just, oh. And I mean, there is no place that you can go where they're not being fed a message most likely that is not the message you want them to be fed. Whether it is at school, whether it is, you know, just outside, just the advertising, whether it is on television. And we let it creep into our homes and we do it not because -- well, some people don't notice it. But some people are just tired.

I get home every night and I know there are things that I have to do, give the kids a bath, sit down, have dinner, say our prayers. We do all of that stuff. There are times when I go, oh, jeez, I don't want to -- I don't want to say the prayers with the kids tonight. It just -- I just want to sit down and watch TV. We're all so tired from running. And so we'll watch TV or we'll do whatever and we just are like, oh, well, they get the difference. Well, they don't. They don't get the difference. And we're being entertained with cakes and circuses while meanwhile people are in the basement stealing our most valued possession and that is the hope of our children that we are a great nation and that we are a great people.

Why is Barack Obama able to connect with hope and especially with the youth? Because it has been beaten into them over and over again. Not at your house, not at my house. At their schools, at their universities. We're bad, we're bad people, we're a bad nation. Well, we're not. We're a nation that has lost its way. We're not bad people. We're not killers. We're not people that take conquests, take land from other people. We're not somebody who has tried to take over the entire world. You know what? Most Americans, I think, feel like I do. You want to take it? Take it. You want to defend? Defend. You want to stand up for your freedom? Then stand up for your freedom. I'm tired of pushing you. I'm tired of you trying to tell me that I'm bad because I don't stand up for you and then when I stand up for you, you don't stand up for yourself. I'm tired of being told by George Clooney and the like that I'm bad because I won't stand up for Darfur. We're standing up all around the world. I'm tired of George Clooney and Michael Moore and Progressives like Obama and Hillary telling me we should listen to the UN, we should put all of our eggs in the UN basket because that's the way to solve things, when they won't solve Darfur. They got nothing else on their plate. Let them solve Darfur. They won't do it. To the point to where George Clooney himself said last week or the week before, at least give the UN soldiers enough to defend themselves and the people. Or have the common decency to pull them out. And yet they want more of the United Nations and yet we're the bad guys. I'm tired of it. I'm tired of it and I'm not going to take it anymore because it's not who we are. And I'm tired of somebody spoon-feeding me hope, spoon-feeding me change but the change they're asking to make is to bring us to a new New Deal which is not the change, is the essence of the change that got us here. I'm tired of people telling me how bad our government is, how bad our problems are and the way to fix it is to make the government bigger, to give it more power. I'm tired of it because it doesn't make any sense. And so we go home and we don't teach it to our children because we're tired of it. And I understand it, brother, because I'm just as tired as you are. But you know what? We've got to find a way together. They have taken our children away from us. They have taken the understanding of what this country really means, they have taken it and we have given it to them because we trusted them. We trusted that they understood America the way we understand them, that it's a good place that has made mistakes. That's not what they've taught. They've taught that we're a bad place, that can be so much better, if... I'm sorry for ranting so just passionate, and I'm a dad in a corner. And when parents get backed into a corner, look out because there's nothing I'm more protective of than my kids. And come hell or high water, I'm going to find a way. Come hell or high water, we will find a way to get our kids back on the right track, to teach them the truth. We'll find a way because we have to. Because real hope doesn't come from speeches. Planning for the future doesn't come from just looking at the future. It comes from looking at the past. And not just the past you want to look at but the actual past, warts and all, to see it for what it really was. Not the revisionist history, not the one that's all red, white and blue and party balloons and not the one that's all slavery and corruption, but the truth about America, that we are a free people that freed more people than any other people in the history of the world, that when America finally does pass, when America's sun finally does set, the world will weep because they will finally realize, as will we and our children and our great-great grandchildren, they will finally realize what we actually were and what we actually had.

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
