Travel Log: Glenn talks FOX News departure, GBTV, and his visit to Poland

I don't believe I have ever had a deeper, more profound and exhausting experience than the one I am living now.

Ten days ago I finished my five-year run on television. The emotions of leaving something as fulfilling and frankly intoxicating as Fox News have been difficult. It has also been tough to begin this new journey knowing that the viewer and I are being separated – even if only until 9/12 on GBTV – as I truly believe in the importance of what I have to say.

Immediately after my final show on FOX News, I was rushed across town to a Broadway theater where I spoke more freely about my career and the plans for my future than I think I ever have. Again I worried about the fans, who have become like family to me. Will they come? Will they understand what I am doing? Will I be able to pull it all together? Can enough like-minded people really change the course of history? (More photos here)

After the GBTV interview, I then went to say job well done to my AMAZING Mercury staff, a team that has set new and higher standards than any in modern media. I boarded a plane around 10pm that night.

I flew out West to first visit a sick friend and then host a Fourth of July celebration in Driggs, Idaho. Even though the crowd estimates were near 15,000 in this little town of 4,000, I again wondered if anyone heard what I was trying to say. Was I clear? Was I helpful? “Give me the words, Lord” I prayed before I went on stage. (See more Driggs photos here)

Early the next morning, we flew back to New York and dropped off one GBTV documentary crew, swapped them for a fresh team and boarded the plane immediately for a long flight to Poland. We were about to stare evil in the eye.

Having Tania and my four children near me made this pensive flight more bearable. My family slept, read and laughed over the next 12 hours. Tania finished ‘The Hiding Place" by Corrie ten Boom. I had finished it the week before and now was reading all I could to understand the mindset of the Germans, Poles and those rounded up during the seemingly never ending years of the Holocaust. I have never had more nightmares.

I didn't want to step on that blood soaked land. The sun went down and rose again just as we were about to land. I had slept very little and I was getting sick. By the time we landed I was feverish and exhausted. My body was playing self-defense.

We dropped my family off at the hotel. The children slept for a few hours and then went to the zoo. The adults however would not see their pillows as we had much to do.

Our first stop was the only operating synagogue in Warsaw. It was as rainy, cold and as gray as I had imagined a former Soviet country. I met with the Chief Rabbi of Poland. We had an amazing conversation for a coming GBTV documentary called "In Search of Courage". And while I was still 18 hours away from the gates, Auschwitz loomed over all of us.

Later, I met with local university students to talk about history, the future and courage.

Always being rushed, never having enough time, I slowed us down again in the Warsaw Ghetto. I couldn't get over the size of the wall. I tried to imagine the people, sights, sounds and emotions on both sides of that wall. I don't think there is a better example of the theory of "out of sight, out of mind" - at least for those on the other side of this wall.

We reflected at a memorial to those lost, ironically, built out of the stone cut for the intended use by Hitler commemorating his Victory . The Lord has a way of making all those who work against Him and His people in to Haymen of The Old Testament.

Tired, emotionally spent and with my neuropathy finding it's own again, we arrived at the airport where we had landed just eleven hours earlier. Tomorrow promised the best and worst of humanity. But first we had to clear security. For most of my team, it went as expected. But for one it did not. Due to a misunderstanding a member of my crew was at first detained and later held in custody. We waited as long as we could but eventually we had to take off without him as we had a tight schedule with a ghetto and two death camps that we had to visit and a flight window into the country of Israel that could not be missed. Eventually someone with the authority to make a judgement call cleared him through -but as there were no flights out, he rented a car and drove through the night. He arrived just as we were waking. That, however, was tomorrow. First things first tonight.

We had left Idaho on Sunday morning at 9am, and by the time the team laid down to sleep just outside of Auschwitz it was 1:30am Tuesday morning. Somewhere over the Atlantic a fresh Mercury documentary film unit was on their way to meet me in less that 18 hours in Israel.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
