Today our nation faces a choice between transformation and restoration

Hello America,

We are now only a few days away from Restoring Love in Dallas, TX. It’s going to be an amazing week filled with music, service, faith, history and inspiration. For those of you who will be with me in Texas, you’re going to have the opportunity to roll up your sleeves alongside amazing, like-minded people from across the country during the events and the day of service. And for those of you who cannot join us in Texas, you’ll be able to watch exclusively on GBTV Plus.

We have arrived at a critical point in our nation’s history. We are being presented with a choice, and that choice is far bigger than whether you pull the lever for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. Don’t get me wrong, the election in November is by far the most important we have seen in our lifetimes. But we can only fix Washington if we first fix ourselves.

Today our nation faces a choice between transformation and restoration. There are people in this country who want to see America transformed, who want to see it become something different than what it has always been. They don’t want America to light the way, but fall alongside other nations on the global playing field. Whether they realize it or not, this transformation fundamentally changes America’s unique and historic role in the world from a beacon of freedom to something far, far less.

We choose a different path. We choose restoration.

For the past three summers, we have been on a journey to restore the values and principles that made this country great. Honor. Courage. Love. It began on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, where hundreds of thousands of people came together to show the world that we weren’t looking to Washington, DC for answers, but to one another and to God. The journey continued last summer in Jerusalem, where we declared that no matter what our leaders may say, “We the People” will never abandon our allies in a time of crisis.

On July 28th, the trilogy of events that began with Restoring Honor and continued with Restoring Courage comes to a close with Restoring Love. But this event is only the next step for the movement of peace and freedom that began on 8/28/10.

At Restoring Love, you will join individuals from across the country as they come together to serve their fellow man. You will connect with history that has been long forgotten. You will see amazing musical performances from artists that will inject “goodness” into the mainstream culture. Most importantly, you will find the tools, the strength, and the inspiration to move forward in fixing yourself and this great country.

This hasn’t been an easy journey. Those who want to transform this country have a nearly hundred year head start. But we are so close to turning things and we cannot stop now. We will restore America – and we will do it together.

It will be love that holds us together through the next phase of this journey.

Whether you are with us in Dallas, TX or at home watching on GBTV – don’t miss a second of this extraordinary event.

Be a part of history. Be a part of the movement to restore America.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

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."
