Glenn interviews Brad Meltzer

Glenn interviewed author Brad Meltzer in the studio this morning about his new book, "The Inner Circle", and some of the fascinating research he did along the way. Watch the video above for more. Or check out highlights from Brad below:

" You know, the National Archives when I went there, I found out that they have a secret cave.  All over the country they have caves where they store documents because the greatest thing that we need to store our great documents is not space.  We need temperature.  We need the temperature to be cool.  So it's an issue of funding.  And the way they can afford it is they bury it deep down in these underground caves.  I said I want to go to these caves, show me these caves.  And so I went out to Borders, Pennsylvania and there are old caves and old gold mines and mines that are out there that have been turned into cave storage sites.  And as I described it at the end of The Inner Circle is exactly how it is in real life."

"And then I heard this amazing story about Ronald Reagan.  Ronald Reagan in his last moments in the White House, he writes a letter, a secret letter and it says, don't let the turkeys get you down.  And then he draws a picture of a turkey.  And he puts the letter into the desk of the Oval Office and he leaves it for George H. W. Bush.  And then when Bush leaves office, he leaves a letter for Bill Clinton who then writes his own letter and leaves one for George W. Bush who leaves one for Obama.  It's the greatest private tradition of the modern presidency. "

" Here's the best part.  And [George H W Bush] says, listen, he says, I never felt the loneliness some presidents have described.  He said ‑‑ and this is fascinating, especially in today's times.  There will be very tough times made even more difficult by criticism you may not think is fair.  I'm not a very good one to give advice but just don't let the critics discourage you or push you off course.  Of all the things he could talk about in this letter, right, of national security, of the environment.  He basically talks about critics and criticism.  This is the thing that sticks in the president's mind when he's in office.  And he says ‑‑ and I'm amazed by this.  He says, you will be our president when you read this note.  I wish you well, I wish your family well.  Your successes now is our country's success.  And I love this ending.  He says, I am rooting hard for you, which is just such, you know, typical George Bush. "

"I realized he did send me the greatest secret of the U.S. presidency.  And he sent me the reminder that we are run by our own.  Right?  Whether we like it or not, whether we put them up on pedestals or down in ditches, the presidents of the United States, whoever they are, are still us.  They are regular people."

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
