Media, with no facts, plays politics with tragic shooting

Rather than seeing a leader stand up to tell the truth and lead with common sense in the face of senseless tragedy, Glenn saw everyone trying to blame conservatives, talk radio, Sarah Palin, and more in an effort to push their own individual agendas.

Glenn said, “I have so desperately this weekend looked for a leader, looked for someone with common sense, looked for someone who would tell the truth. Instead I find a sheriff who has no facts and blames it on talk radio. Instead I find, I believe it was Time magazine that said, if I may quote: 'We have none of the facts yet, but who would be surprised if this was a Glenn Beck fan'. I've looked for anyone that would not play politics with it.”

“This isn't about politics,” Glenn said. “[Al-Qaeda] try to convince their own population that it's about politics, it's about oppression, it's about a group that can't be stopped because they're too big and powerful. So you have to go out and strap a bomb to yourself and blow yourself up. It's not about freedom fighters. It's about terror. It's about murder. It's not suicide; it's murder. It's madness. It's mayhem.”

Glenn said that there are three potential dangers facing our country. There are madmen, there are those waiting for collapse and chaos, and then there are terrorists. “There have been terrorists. There have been American terrorists. There has been the D.C. sniper and there's been the Oklahoma City bomber. Terrorists. Americans. And they will come again.”

“There have been crazy people, and they will strike and they will kill and they will come again. The question is, do we make them all about politics? Do we Balkanize ourselves? Do we become the Israelis and the Palestinians where people are just killing because they don't even know what they're killing for anymore?”

Glenn said that Jared Lee Loughner clearly falls into the category of “madmen”.

Stu pointed out, “He was a hardcore atheist, he believed -- one of his favorite books was the Communist Manifesto. He believed George W. Bush was responsible for 9/11. He thought the Mars rover landing was fake.”

Glenn explained that every individual has a choice, and Jared Lee Loughner chose to be a killer. “The killer this weekend had an individual choice: Kill or don't kill. He chose. He was insane. But now the media and the politicians have a choice: Use this for your own political purposes or be bigger than that. America demands bigger people. America deserves bigger people. Because there are those on the left and the right, and we've been doing research over the weekend on the left and the right who do believe violence is the answer. I am not one of them.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
