Are we a nation divided?

What a blessed weekend Tania and I had. I asked for your prayers on Friday as I have a tough week ahead of me. I have a few TV specials and am off radio all week, then back on September 2 with a whole new season of great stuff.

This weekend we were so deeply touched. We spent time meeting with those who, on the surface, are very different than us.

We went to meet with the Archbishop of Los Angeles on Friday.

What a good and decent man. While we don't agree on everything, we do agree on this: Hearts are growing cold. We are a nation divided against itself and we must change that by working toward reconciliation. It will be found through service and love. A reconciliation with each other and the truth of who we are and who in the end we all answer to.

Then, we spent Sunday morning with our religion followed by a service at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston. I spoke with Joel and Victoria before and after the service. They are always so kind and gentle. While again, we might disagree on "religion", just as I might have with the Archbishop, we are in total agreement on faith. We all agree that revolution is not needed but instead a "servalution", as Joel called it.

Service to our fellow man IS service to God. Service will soften our hearts and in turn will turn our country and world.

Then tonight, fourteen friends came to my home back in Dallas to hold a gospel worship service. I am not even sure what "religion" they are. We failed to worry about that. :) We instead shared our mutual faith. Faith that tells us all that nothing is too big for God. He is a God that creates not divides and never wounds but always heals.

They sang and sang and sang, while I prayed and read and listened to them and Him. It was a night of songs of comfort, unity and healing. Wow.

How blessed we are. I will share a short video with you. It doesn't do it justice.

What great voices and friends. Coming to praise and comfort, sing and pray, and laugh and cry all in joy!

So many friends that love and serve God. All coming together. Each strong in their own religion and because of that fact, they are unafraid to stand with someone completely different than them in so many ways. As this white bread, damn near albino Mormon, sang with fourteen black and Hispanic (maybe two white people too) gospel singers, I realized how blessed we are as a people.

We are a nation divided by political interests but we are not a nation divided when we focus on principles and values. When we do that, it is amazing how much we find in each other where we are almost exactly alike!

We really have so much in common. This weekend in all of my conversations I found that we all feel like an outcast because those in or out of our own religion question our motives, or faith.

Yet, we all came together under the banner of love, service and love of God.

I figure, If everybody I know is in my religion or everyone I know loves Jesus, I just don't know enough people.

Let me share something really dynamic and true.

"Something has begun."

Something full of joy. Something bigger than you or I can imagine. Something born of God. There will be no one "leader." Instead, it will be millions of us coming together to help, inspire, lift up, love and heal. It is going to be amazing, if we "let go and let God", as us alcoholics say. :)

Good and God are coming in a big way. I have no idea what role religion plays. That is up to the churches, I suppose. But I know this, millions of those who attend those churches (and will continue to do so) will join with others who have deep faith and even those with no religion and we will, together, practice what Ben Franklin called the "American religion."

There is a God

He will judge us

We should serve Him.

The best way to serve Him is to serve our fellow man.

... And America will find herself again, she will be good again and we will save ourselves and our children from the hatred, rage and injustice so many feel tonight. All will be right and well.

PS: In between these incredible encounters, I had an amazing series of email exchanges about being a better man and better people with my favorite atheist Penn Jillette. Followed by a great hour with another friend who is agnostic about how we can help each other reach more people with the message of love, charity and decency.

I am sure many in their circle tell them the same thing. "How can you be friends with that guy, he is a religious freak etc." Just as some in my circle or the circle of the Archbishop, Joel, my Mormon bishop or the gospel group at my house must hear: "How can you be friends with (him/them)? (He/they) don't believe the same stuff."

Here is the first miracle: We all have so many friends that understand that we don't all have to believe the same thing. In fact, they almost all believe that the world wouldn't be as great of a place if we all had a uni opinion. There are no "loyalty oaths" in the land of the free I understand. What matters is how you live your life and how you treat your fellow man. The rest is up to you and God.

As I learned last night "there is no one greater than Him."

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
