Friday night, Glenn Beck delivered a rousing keynote speech to a packed ballroom at the Summer Retreat for David Horowitz’s Freedom Center. Before the speech, Beck told TheBlaze that he hoped to “inspire people to learn who they are and to stand as an example for others.”
Speaking for nearly an hour, and without a teleprompter or a written speech, Beck inspired the gathering of conservatives by showing them dozens of historical artifacts from his own personal collection, while explaining each item’s significance and its connection to what is happening in America today. George Washington’s compass, Thomas Jefferson’s Koran, wooden sandals worn by a Japanese-American held in a WWII interment camp, and Tokyo Rose’s microphone (below) were all part of the presentation. While displaying the microphone, Beck shared the real story of her patriotism — a story too often left out of history books.
On more than one occasion, the audience gasped audibly as Beck showed items such as Auschwitz mastermind Dr. Mengele’s signed order for a barrel of the deadly chemical luminol (used for killing children), a fake passport forged by Raoul Wallenberg in his efforts to save Hungarian Jews from being transported to Nazi death camps, and Walt Disney’s original proposal for Disneyland.
Speaking about the importance of “taking back the culture,” Beck surprised the audience by sharing the shocking statements about eugenics from playwright George Bernard Shaw and the underreported story of President Woodrow Wilson’s connection to the pro-KKK movie “Birth of a Nation.”
The audience listened with rapt attention as Beck opined, ”We win in the end if we are strong, if we are gracious, if we are decent, if we are humble, and if we don’t care what the world does or says about us.”

***HCC UPDATE as of Sunday, March 23, 2014, 5:00 pm***
The Health Care Compact (HB 227
) is currently in the OH House State & Local Government Committee. The Health Care Compact was introduced by OH Rep. Wes Retherford & Rep. Terry Boose.
Proponent testimony in support of the Health Care Compact (HB 227) was given in February. (To read the testimony click here. Then scroll down to Feb 18, 2014, open the menu and scroll down to HB 227.)
Opponents of health care freedom in Ohio are trying to stop the Health Care Compact (HB 227) and will be giving opponent testimony in the OH House State & Local Government Committee this coming Tuesday. It is important that we let the committee members know Ohio wants health care freedom.
The Health Care Compact is the one tool that will give Ohio the Constitutional authority to remove ourselves from the chains of Obamacare. We have continually waged this fight against Obamacare in Ohio for the last 4 years! Passing of the Health Care Compact will put us one step closer to our goal of stopping Obamacare in Ohio. But this can only be done with your help and support!
How you can help!Please sign the petition in support of the Health Care Compact
to show Ohio legislators you support true health care freedom in Ohio. After you sign it please forward it your friends, family and social network.
Please contact the below members of the OH House State & Local Government Committee and encourage them to support the HCC and putting Ohio residents back in control of the decision making process regarding our healthcare.
