Revenge vs. Love: This election choice is clear

There's one day left before the most important election of our lives and most important election since 1860. And the candidates were out making their final case to the American people, and this is the case that the president has been laying out for the last couple of weeks. This is the one he's been laying out as his final case to the American people.

You may be frustrated sometimes with the pace of change. I'm frustrated too sometimes. But you know where I stand. You know what I believe. You know I tell the truth. - Barack Obama

Wow. He's frustrated just like you. Going on his how many vacations a year, jetting all around, not having to worry about the price of gas. He's frustrated just like you. Just like you. But you know that he always tells the truth. You know where he stands. That's his case. You know where he stands. Israel doesn't know where he stands. Iran doesn't know where he stands. The SEALs don't know where he ‑‑ the parents of SEALs who have lost their lives don't know where he stands. People who said, hey, gas is too expensive and then hear him say it was only $1.87 when I got into office because Bush had destroyed the economy, they don't know where he stands. Small business owners don't know where he stands. People looking for a job don't know where he stands.

We've discussed several times before, including very recently, the proven lies. There are things that you don't really know where he stands and then there are proven lies that he has told. I've never looked back, and this is not a judgment on him. This is more a judgment on America and the press. I've never looked back and marveled at how many people will fall for and accept, knowingly accept a falsehood. I've never seen it before in my life. And after being caught in lie after lie after lie that he has the audacity to look the American people and the media in the eye and then say, you know I always tell the truth." You can't go through all of the things that we have gone through over the last four years because it is unbelievably numerous. The places where he actually lies to you. Says one thing but then is caught on tape saying something else behind closed doors.

He was asked, is it fair for somebody like you making $20 million a year to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or a bus driver? And Romney said yes, I think that's fair. That didn't happen. That's not true. That was an out‑and‑out lie. And every fact‑checker on the planet has already said, "That's a lie." And Obama knew it. Romney was specifically referring to the principle that capital gains should be taxed lower than other income because it's been taxed once already, a principle, by the way, that Obama agrees with in his own tax policy. But that hasn't stopped President Obama for knowingly distorting and lying. Obama has continually lied about Romney's plan for GM. And while lying about it, he calls Romney the liar. Even though virtually every fact‑check organization has backed Romney on it. Romney wanted GM to go through bankruptcy. A managed bankruptcy. That doesn't mean put it out of business and destroy it. Every airline has gone through management ‑‑ what is wrong with us, America? Then Romney wanted to go the extra step and say loan guarantees from the U.S. Government to keep them going forward: Obama continues to claim that women rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms. They don't. Planned Parenthood doesn't do mammograms. But that's the way he can say, "I'm not talking about abortion. I'm talking about the great work that Planned Parenthood does on mammograms." They don't do mammograms! Obama claimed that Romney lied about oil production on government lands. He didn't. He was right. And virtually every fact, I think every fact‑check organization verified that within minutes of him saying it. For eight years now Obama has claimed that business get a tax break for shipping jobs overseas. Romney says, I've been in business my whole life; I've never even heard of that. I've been global business. I've never gotten a tax break. Obama mocked him, called him a liar.

So what are the facts? If you ship your jobs overseas, you can deduct the moving costs. Now, that's not a tax break. You're spending the money to move overseas. That's no tax advantage. That's ‑‑ the tax advantage would have to continue on after the move. Just like every other company in the world. It's not a special thing. If I move my company from one place to another, if I move it from New York, please, people in New York, move to Texas. And on Wednesday listen to me. If he loses, if Romney loses, move soon. I will get a business deduction for moving those people from New York to Texas. That's the way it works. That's not to move people overseas. It's fairness. It's the same for every company. Are you telling me that there aren't some companies that need to say, "Hey, Bill, we've got to open this up in China. We've got to be over there. We need a representative." So they're not going to get their tax deduction for moving but they will some place here in the United States? That doesn't make any sense. There's no incentive for being overseas.

On the Benghazi situation, even Candy Crowley admitted after the debate that it was Romney who was right about the way Obama had presented that attack. He continues to lie about that. Obama hasn't ‑‑ he keeps saying it: Mr. President, I'm sorry, but we don't know that you always tell the truth. In fact, I contend a vast number of Americans know just the opposite.

We also know that you're nasty, you're small‑minded and you're divisive in much of your rhetoric. And I know you don't like to hear that and nobody likes to say that to the president of the United States. But we have tons of evidence of you doing it, from 2010:

But they're going to be paying attention to this election. And if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying we're going to punish our enemies and we're going to reward our friends who stand with us on it... - Barack Obama

We're going to punish our enemies? He was specifically talking about anyone running for the GOP. Punish, if Latinos don't punish our enemies. If that is not small, nasty and divisive, I don't know what is. But that's just ‑‑ that's just one of the many examples. That one's from 2010. I can give you one from this weekend.

And at the time the Republican congress, any Senate candidate by the name of Mitt Romney (Boos from crowd) No, no, no. Don't boo. Vote. Vote. Voting's the best revenge. - Barack Obama

Let me tell you something. I am going to share this with you. I wasn't going to, but I am. If you look at history through a biblical world view, the last step before a nation is completely destroyed is they drive the righteous from among them. If this isn't a sign from a group of people that will drive the righteous from among them, and that's the last step before God's wrath comes, I fear for our country and it is ‑‑ it cannot be overstated. It cannot be called paranoid. The best revenge, punish your enemies, and Valerie Jarrett last week saying "we don't forget"? That's Occupy Wall Street. That's the French Revolution. Now it's our turn? What are you talking about? You've had the last four years. What do you mean now it's your turn? That goes to Vladimir Putin: I'll have more flexibility. Hear me. If you are a God‑fearing person, hear me. Last call, America. Last call. Because the righteous will be driven from among them.

But I believe in the American people. I believe that we are not too far gone. I believe that people can watch and see the difference. They can feel the difference. When you watch Barack Obama, you can just see he is angry. When you watch Mitt Romney, you can see he is not. We are not an angry nation. We don't listen to demagogues like that. It doesn't work. No matter how much power he has amassed, no matter how many friends in the media he has, Americans know. And if they reject it this time, and if they're so dead inside ‑‑ that's a possibility. If they're so dead inside that they can no longer see the difference between good and evil, we will be destroyed because we will be a remarkable evil on this planet. Our technology alone would make us so dark and so spooky that it is beyond comprehension. But I don't think we're there.

Thomas Jefferson said trust the American people. They will see their mistake and they will correct it. I have prayed this whole election. For 40 days I have fasted: Lord, just let people see who Mitt Romney is. And let people see who Barack Obama is. I didn't ask for any special favors, not somebody to win one way or another. Just let people see who they are. Now it's up to you. Now that you've seen them, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to vote because it's the best kind of revenge? May I ask, revenge for what? What have we done to people that make them so angry? What have we done? We disagree with each other. What have we done to you? Created a country that allowed you to become the president of the United States of America? My gosh, what a curse around your neck. What have we done? That's how twisted and evil and angry and divisive they really are. And you hear that...and then you have to choose: Do you want that... or do you want this.

Did you see what President Obama said today? He asked his supporters to vote for revenge. For revenge. Instead I ask the American people to vote for love of country.

- Mitt Romney

The choice is a simple one and it is in your hands tomorrow.

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

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.

You.

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.
