We are in what is possibly the final battle for the American way of life, Glenn says. But it's by no means a physical battle. It's a spiritual battle against true evil and Glenn warns that if we don't keep it that way, it will be the death of the American experiment. But as the Left's tactics grow dirtier, we shouldn't lose hope. The forces for good are growing stronger every day. Parents are standing up, the mainstream media has some new competition, and whistleblowers are letting the truth be known.

GLENN: So I have -- I had kind of a fun week, if you've been listening all week. You know I -- I have been a little -- a little on the edge. A little on the edge. To the point to where, I don't know. Maybe I want to spend my life as a dog. You know, dog's life. It's very popular, I'll show you in a few minutes.
Oh, what's happening with people who want to identify as a dog. That is finally we've gotten to the civil rights program.
Gotten to the place, where we can finally say, what needs to be said. People can choose to be dogs.
But I've been -- I watched the news. And I watched for things that the average person doesn't necessarily watch for.
If you read my daily email newsletter. Which is free every day. Give it at GlennBeck.com.
If you read that, you see things that media is not talking about. Even conservative media. Not talking about.
And when you start to piece all these puzzle pieces together. You see a pretty bleak picture.
And we're at a place, where the dye has had been cast. The Rubicon has been crossed. And we're here.
And it is a battle. We are at war. We are in a spiritual war, primarily.
And too many of us don't even know what that means anymore. But we're not fighting flesh and bone. We are fighting evil. True evil.
And the longer we wait, the stronger evil will become.
The longer we -- the longer we wait, the more chance, it comes to blows. And that will be the death of the republic. And the death of the American -- you know, the American experiment.
It will be over. And I don't know about you, but I am -- I have children. I have four.
I have grandchildren. I have two. And I'm desperate for them to live, a full, happy, comfortable life. Even if it means, I give my life, or I give up all that I have. So they can have -- and we overuse freedom and liberty. Nobody knows what that is.
So they have opportunity. Opportunity.
That's all I want them to have. Honestly, it has been a very tough battle. And I know you feel the same way.
I've at least had the luxury of -- I was going to say fame and fortune. But fame is a curse. And so is fortune, in many ways.
But it's a nice way to go. If you're going to go to hell, it's a nice way to go with fortune. But I've had a much more comfortable life. It's easier for me to think, than it is probably for many in my audience.
Because they are -- they have the daily bills bearing town on them every day.
So we all have our own things that we're carrying through.
We've all been injured.
We've all been foolish. And we've also been blessed enough to do some things that will prepare us.
I've been sued. I so far, haven't been arrested. But, you know, I don't know what will happen next.
You know, when they're arresting just anybody. When they can arrest attorneys, for giving somebody advice, that's not illegal, you know, we don't know what will happen next.
I have worked hard, to serve the Constitution. I've worked hard to serve my fellow man.
I have served my God. And I cannot even say, to the best of my ability. But I have tried.
And moment -- you know, momentarily, occasionally, once in a while, I forgive myself for being proud of what I've created. Because I didn't create it.
I was allowed an opportunity in America. God gave me certain abilities, and I'm a lucky man. I'm a blessed man.
Still, with all of that going on, we have to realize where we are right now. I always talk you to, we're on the highway, and we're passing the exit signs. And the bridge is out.
Well, we're now, you know that point in the movie, where they're on a bridge. And it's either open. Or there's no way out. And all the cars are coming up behind them.
And you will be killed by the bad guys.
And they're like, what do we do?
We're at that moment, right now.
What do we do? We are in, what possibly is the final battle for the American way, of life.
The American truth, justice, and the American way.
I don't really care if we're a poor nation. I really don't. I don't want to be a poor nation. I don't want to have poverty. But I do believe that we have been so misguided. We have lost our way, so expertly. That we have put all of our belief, that what America is, is about success, money, ease.
An abundance of food. We don't have to work hard. And that's not true. That's just not true.
As we advance as a species, are we any better than the people that came before us?
Are we any better than those who we say, we stand against their principles?
We fight with words, we fight with votes. And God bless it, with politics.
But we don't fight alone. I couldn't say this you to, three years ago, fewer years ago. Because we were still putting our faith in one man. In the office of the president of the United States.
And I think still too many people are doing that. But I know today, that I'm not fighting this alone. I'm fighting this you with.
We're fighting this battle with parents, that will stand up. So many parents won't say anything.
They'll say it privately. They'll say it to their neighbors. They'll say it to somebody else, in the school board meeting. But when it comes time to stand up. They don't want their children to have any problems at school.
They don't want to be a pariah in the neighborhood. But I'll tell you right now, I know there are standing up.
There are moms in this country. They're for liberty. They're conservative. They're independent.
Even some of them are Democrat. A lot of them are. That are seeing the insanity in our schools.
I am personally waiting for more teachers to join us.
I am -- I am -- I am waiting for the teachers, who don't believe in pedophilia and Marxism, to stand up and say, I reject my union.
We need some courage there, gang. I mean, unless you're with Marxists and pedophiles, and child mutation. You know, mutilation.
But then, I oppose, what you believe. Because I am for children being children. I am for children having innocence in their childhood.
I am for children being safe from predators. And I know, we fight with doctors, by our side. There are doctors all over the country, that are -- that are against us. And standing up. And risking their license, to stand up and say, no.
No mutilation of children. No. You don't have to take the vaccine.
No. You should be able to consult with your doctor. And if you have a different treatment, that you want to try. You should be able to try.
There are doctors who know, first, do no harm. Scientists. The scientists that are standing up.
That know that science is based on provable fact. And that science is always wrong. Until new fact -- or only right until new facts come along. Which makes the old science, outdated, and wrong.
Scientists that know that the military-industrial complex wasn't all that Eisenhower warned about. He warned about the military-industrial complex, becoming so big, that it could control Congress.
That we could be in never-ending wars. But he also told us about education. Getting into bed with the government. And training a whole new generation. To be slaves of an out-of-control government.
He warned of a scientific complex, where our scientists would no longer be able to think individually, because so much of the study would be funded by the government. Which was looking for answers, that they wanted.
When we fight today, we fight with the scientists who know that. And will stand up. And say, no. This is wrong.
And there's lots of them.
Today, we fight against the mainstream media. But we're fighting in a different way. We used to have to fight them with every fact and everything else. Now with the new media. Something, when I started the Blaze 12 years ago. People said, I was insane.
This would never work. You can't get past the mainstream media and the big networks. And yet, we did it.
And look what has spawned from that. Now, we are fighting with the voice of a new media. Where soon, and I mean very soon. The mainstream media has to answer to us. We're no longer in a position to wear we have to answer to them.
We have to say what they are charging. And then, you know, prove them wrong.
Instead, they're going to be in the position, very soon. Where they have to prove us wrong.
And that has taken a toll on so many people in the media. That got out and risked everything. And came to the new media.
And they're still coming.
We're now fighting with actors and actresses. And writers. And directors. And gaffers. And cinematographers. And stage people.
That have had enough of the insanity. That are now coming to something even newer than the new media.
And that is the new Hollywood, for lack of a better term. We have seen amazing advances, from the Jesus Revolution to the Chosen.
Those are not low-quality, conservative films. That is the highest quality.
And we're now making inroads to distribution. Once we have full distribution, the whole world changes.
We fight with Mike Lee.
We fight with father and son, Rand and Ron Paul. We fight with Chip Roy and Ted Cruz. We fight with the members of the Freedom Caucus.
And there are many others in Washington. In Congress. In the Senate.
That are actually fighting. We are also fighting with others in Washington. Like whistle-blowers.
Have you noticed the number of whistle-blowers?
And we also fight with people who are silently standing in place. Not abandoning their posts. And trying to protect what they can from the inside.
We fight for the rule of law. The Constitution.
We fight for the rights have all mankind.
We fight with posts on Facebook. And X, and Instagram.
Blah, blah, blah. One hundred different places. We get to raise our flags. We fight it every day at the gun range. We fight it when we buy the hunting license at Cabela's.
In our hearts, we know we -- we don't care about the stupid bear. The black bear. The deer.
In our hearts, we actually have compassion for these animals. And we take their life to feed our families.
It's not a sport where we kill them and leave them aside, as the media would have them believe. It's not brutal and grotesque.
That's why we go to the firing range. Because we have a responsibility, if we're going to hunt, to take the animal down in one shot.
We have a responsibility to -- if we carry a gun. And we're seeing a crime. And people in danger. That we pull our gun out, and we don't get other people killed. Including ourself.
We care about being outdoors. We care about the land. We care about the timber. We care about the smell of pine. And how cold the waterfall is coming off a glacier.
We care about these things.
