Glenn Beck: Miracles in Wilmington

Did you miss or do you want to see it again? The full archive for America's First Christmas is now available on the Insider Extreme...

These guys yesterday did three, three wildly different shows yesterday. The TV show was just magic. It was just magic. I don't know if you -- I don't know if you saw it, but the show last night was about -- the show, television show was about miracles and there were three miracles I think that happened. You know, I saw in the press this morning that the miracles were, they quoted me as saying -- which I didn't say -- something like the miracle is the amount of people that came. The miracle was how many people went Christmas shopping there. I'm like, did you even watch the show?

There is a -- there is a company that is correcting people's hearing, and I don't mean like with a hearing aid or anything else. I had these two wonderful women in my office on, I think it was Monday. Did we leave on Monday? Yeah. It was on Monday right before I went on the plane. And they were in my office and they had both had their hearing restored, not enhanced. Restored. And it's an incredible piece of hardware. I mean, it's just, it's amazing. In America. Only from America. And they're sitting in the office and this one woman is talking to me about how she would always look to other people. She would always look for other people's reactions because she was deaf and she only had about 30% of her hearing, I think, and she was in crowds, she just couldn't hear. Just, she was always bluffing. And she just told this story about how, you know, she's this beautiful, beautiful woman and how she used to have, you know, these hearing aids in high school and I -- and she's talking the story -- telling the story, I thought, how many, how many guys wouldn't have dated her because, you know, she had the hearing aids. "Oh, yeah, she's the one with the hearing aids," or whatever. She talked about how in her high school and her college she was bluffing and she so desperately wanted to be one thing and had to change her major because she couldn't, she couldn't hear. She just couldn't hear in this classroom. And the professor was a guy who actually had experience. So he wasn't working out of the textbook. So you had to listen to him. She said, I couldn't hear him. She said, so I had to, I had to leave my dream job. And she said, now that I was -- then I was, you know, stuck in this dead-end job and, oh, it is just heartbreaking. And she got married and she had kids and then she had this device implanted a few years ago when they were just beginning to test it, and you put it in and then it has to heal for eight months and it's actual restoration of hearing, not like a cochlear implant. And the amazing thing is, she said when they turned it on eight months later, she said, I heard the crispness of the air conditioner. I had never heard it before. And she just described the sound of air to me. And think all the things that we take for granted. She gets into the car and, she said, I heard my child's voice for the first time: Mommy, did they fix your ears? And the way she told this story, I mean, everybody in the office was crying. I get to Wilmington, Ohio, and what were there? About 2,000 people in line at the bookstore, which, because I was told last night before we got on the plane, because of our appearance in Wilmington, Ohio and the people that showed up just at the bookstore, the bookstore has hired three people that they have laid off. Three people now are going back to work at this bookstore. I just think that's great. Thank you for coming.

In that crowd there were, let's see, a mom, a dad, and this son. And he was about, probably 7 or 8. And he had hearing aids. And I was talking to the parents and I asked him a question, and he looked right directly up to them because I could tell that he couldn't hear me. After hearing this story on Monday from these two women, I could -- I just, I knew what he was feeling. And there was Miracle Number 1.

Here I am, I know this technology exists. I know this family probably doesn't know about this technology and I just don't think they could afford it. It's $30,000 an ear. And we can. And I looked at them and I thought, that is not a coincidence that they were sitting in my office on Monday and I know about this and now I see him, and I know we can restore his hearing. So I pulled them off to the side, and during the television show -- they didn't know this, but during the television show, we brought them up. And when I come back from vacation, I'm bringing them in to meet with the doctors. I want to see if there's a way we can restore his hearing, we're going to do it. Just such a cool, cool thing. And there were four miracles, at least four miracles that I personally witnessed yesterday. It was such a great trip out to Wilmington, Ohio, so great.

When I got off stage somebody told me that, again on a handshake, business comes to town from North Carolina. They had heard us talking about Wilmington and they wanted to check it out. They have been up for the last week and they had a handshake deal last night that they were going to hire between 25 and 50 people out of Wilmington, Ohio. They heard us talk about it. They were going to hire these people and expand their business, and they decided to do it in Wilmington because they heard us talk about it and they thought, wow, this sounds like a great community. They went up to check it for themselves and they liked the way the people did business there, all on a handshake. I mean, it was just really fantastic. If you want to help this town out, still the Wilmingtongeneralstore.com still has all of the shops and stuff that you can go and buy something from. These people work their brains out. I didn't get a chance to meet this family that is living in a -- sharing a one-room apartment with another family and they are so destitute that they go to the Wal-Mart to warm up, and they opened up a storefront yesterday and they were selling anything they could get their hands on, used records and everything else. George Lange went into their store and he took a bunch of pictures of them. We'll have to show them to you. It's just amazing, amazing people that did whatever they could to be able to find something of value that maybe somebody would want for Christmas. Instead of just standing there wanting a handout. Wilmington, Ohio. Thank you. Thank you for giving us the Christmas spirit. Thank you for showing us the way out.

 

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."
