American Revival - Fusion Magazine, March 2010

For the past few years, I’ve gone on tour for a handful of weeks, twice a year. In the summer I usually keep things light, sharing funny stories about my family or discussing whatever craziness is going on in Washington. At Christmas, my shows are usually more reflective. This year, though, I decided not only to hit the road earlier (I hope to see you all this month) but I also decided to take my tours in another direction.

First, let's start with the broad strokes. I'm a "big picture" kind of guy, so let me lay it all out for you before we go into the details. I'm calling it my American Revival: Faith, Hope and Charity tour. Catchy, right? Wait, it gets better.

You know how past shows have lasted about 2 hours? Not this one — try 8 hours. Yes, this is going to be a daylong event, at every stop I make. And instead of it being just me on the stage, this year I'm bringing along some friends — three special guests. But don't worry; I'll be participating throughout the entire day.

As far as "what" I'll be talking about, I'm going back to the source:

• The Founding Fathers were divinely inspired, and they created a spiritual country rooted in a firm belief in God. Today, we're told that God has no place in public life, and the devout are too often dismissed and ridiculed.

• When the Founders were literally inventing America, they knew that if the people didn't trust them, they'd never have the necessary support they'd need to lead. Honestly, do you trust the government today? Hope is truth, and, as I look around, there's far too little of both for me.

• And then there's the idea of charity—from barn raisings to natural disasters, Americans are the first to roll up their sleeves and lend a hand. They always have been. But today, the government is mandating charity through handouts; even though private citizens have always given more each year than any organized charity could dream of.

The fundamental ideas of Faith, Hope and Charity are an American bedrock. They sustained and supported us for hundreds of years and, by returning to these core values, we can restart the heart of America and revive our spirit individually, and as a nation.

At every city I'll be joined by the incredible spiritual writer David Barton, who'll further address the idea of Faith. The noted economist David Buckner will discuss Hope, and how our economy can come back from the brink. And Judge Andrew Napolitano will talk about Charity, the Constitution and how we can strengthen our dedication to both.

Everyone who attends this event will be given a binder full of incredibly practical, diverse information. I want you to think of the binder as a "living" growing collection of information that you and your family can use and share.

What I've saved for last is without question the most important part of the program. You.

When people get informed, they get empowered. When people get empowered, they take action. And when people take action, things change and anything is possible. Come out and join me and your neighbors for a day like no other. Politicians love to say that America needs to be a "big tent" with plenty of room inside for all kinds of ideas (that is, as long as those ideas line their own pockets and serve their special interests). Well, I'm not feeling the ideas that we care about are being discussed enough and I'm fed up. So I'm packing a "tent" of my own and taking it on the road. It's an American Revival through Faith, Hope and Charity. Head over to www.glennbeck.com for details and tickets, and I'll see you there.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
