Michelle Obama: 'Our souls are broken'

So patriotic it'll bring a tear to you eye... Thanks to Insider Payallin for sending this one in...

GLENN: The media is heralding this guy (Barack Obama) as a Messiah. There was a story in the paper over the weekend about how "24" made this possible, how David Palmer's character on "24". People see Barack Obama and all of a sudden they're okay because they think he's David Palmer. I got news for ya. If you're so stupid that you think that Barack Obama is David Palmer, you shouldn't be allowed to be anywhere near a voting booth. If you didn't think a black man could be President of the United States until you saw a TV show, you shouldn't be allowed near a voting booth.

William Crystal has a great article today, op-ed column in the New York Times of all places, and I just, this speaks to the arrogance. Fast forward last Monday, Bill Crystal writes: Wisconsin, Michelle Obama, in the course of a stump speech marked, for the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country. "For the first time in my adult lifetime," we talked about this last week. For the first time in her adult lifetime. Now, she came out later in a speech and she said, no, no, no, it was just because of politics. You know what? It's a recent thing in my adult lifetime that I've been disgusted by politics. Isn't it a recent thing? I was disgusted in the 1970s. I had hope in the Eighties. I even had hope in the 1990s. I didn't lose my patriotism. I didn't lose my hope in America. I was never not proud of my country. I'm not proud of the way my government works. I'm not proud -- not even of the system. I'm proud of the system. I'm not proud of the weasels that we have elected. I'm not proud of the stupidity of some people, the way they look at Barack Obama and say, "Oh, I don't know about his policies but he's got a nice website. I don't know about his policies but I sure like that message of hope and change." I'm not proud of that, but I am hopeful that there are more people that pay attention to policies that just think that he's David Palmer because if the majority of Americans just are voting for him because they think he's David Palmer, we're doomed.

So Bill Crystal writes on. He says, "Life for regular folks has gotten worse over the course of my lifetime." This is according to Michelle Obama. "There the through the Republican and Democratic administrations, it hasn't gotten much better." Life has gotten so much better in America. We are just at the beginning in my adult lifetime for us to pay for the mistakes that we have made. But you can't tell me that life isn't better than it was when you were growing up.

Now, there are things that I'd sure like to change but it has nothing to do with government. It has everything to do with who we are, what we've done, what we've allowed to happen, what we've allowed in our own homes, what we've said, "It's all right." It has nothing to do with the government.

Now, she goes on and she says all last week, she was just talking about the political process. Bill Crystal says, "That's not what she was talking about. She argued in a Wisconsin speech that America's illness goes far beyond its flawed political process." She says, "Barack knows..." this is how spooky this stuff is. "Barack knows at some level there is a hole in our souls." This is a variation of language that she had used earlier in the campaign trail. Quote: "Barack is the only person in this race who understands that before we can work on the problems as a nation, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation." Ooh. Wow, we have broken souls and apparently Barack Obama, a vote for Barack Obama is a vote for healing your soul. "Barack Obama", quoting, "is going to demand that you shed your cynicism, that you put down your divisions, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones, that you push yourself to be better and that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved and uninformed." Okay, okay. Gosh, how is he going to do that? How is he going to force us to come out of our comfort zone? How is he going to force us to come out of isolation? How is he going to force us to put down our divisions? How is he going to force us to shed our cynicism, that we engage? How is it Barack will, quote, "Never allow us to go back to our lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed"? You don't have to work to improve your souls. Just vote for Barack Obama. Our lives will be changed if we vote for Barack Obama, and I believe that's true.

I go back to the word, I scroll across the paper yesterday. Arrogance. I told you on this program, and Bill Crystal points it out. I told you on this program, I think it was after Iowa. I said, listen to the speeches that Barack Obama gives. He's brilliant. It was only Barack Obama and then late in the campaign Mitt Romney that started using the word "We" over "I." Barack Obama has used it the whole time, we, we, we. Hillary Clinton will get up and say, I'm going to do this, I have this platform, I'm going to be able to do this. Barack Obama says we're going to make the change, we're here, yes, we can. I don't think he believes it. I told you at the time that I thought he was brilliant for doing it because it makes it look like it's us, we're in it together. And we are in it together, but I don't think he believes that we're in it together. I believe this guy believes he is the chosen one, not in a Messiah sort of way but a political Messiah. He's the one. He's the anointed one. He's the guy that America has been waiting for. He says we're going to make the change that we seek, we're the ones. We are the ones we've been waiting for. It's true. We are the ones. I said right after 9/11 the greatest American generation is this one. It's the one that stands up and does the hard work. I'm not sure he believes that because he's going to force us to push ourselves to be better. He's going to force us to engage. He's going to demand that you put down your divisions, that you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone. He's going to unanimous that we do that. I believe Barack Obama believes he's the one that we've been waiting for, not we're the one. He's the one that we've been waiting for. And what is it that he's going to force us to do? What is it that he is telling us, you're going to get out of your comfort zone? I'll tell you this, 52% income tax, that's out of my comfort zone. I don't know about anybody else.

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.


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."
