Lang Lang plays anti-US song at White House dinner

Glenn doesn’t usually call for someone to lose their job (not even Keith Olbermann), but whoever helped plan the reception for Chinese President Hu at the White House may want to start drafting a resume. Glenn had the story on radio this morning.

“I think we could put a pencil into the Office of Protocol and maybe a puppy that cannot, no matter what you do, be house‑trained, a pencil and a carpet‑pooping, wetting puppy in the office of protocol in the White House and they would do better for our relations in the rest of the world than the clowns that are currently running,” Glenn said on radio. (Wonder what that would look like? Click here.)

Glenn explained that world famous pianist Lang Lang played a song in the White House called “My Homeland.”

“No one in the Office of Protocol said, hey, what's that song about?  Because they talk about, you know, when the tyrants come, grab your rifles,” Glenn said of the song, which refers to the United States as one of the “tyrants” and “the jackal”.

“Can you imagine the reverse of this?  If it was an official state visit, Barack Obama is there and they bring out some American to perform for the Chinese in Beijing and he sings some anti‑Chinese song?  That would be an international incident,” Pat suggested.

“Now, apparently President Hu knew exactly what this song was and when it was written.  Apparently everybody in China knows this song.  It is a very famous song.  But our Office of Protocol doesn't!” an exasperated Glenn said. He added that anyone would an ounce of curiosity may have asked what the song was about, especially since they knew of the selection ahead of time.

This is just the latest snafu from the White House Office of the Chief of Protocol, which also allowed President Obama to give the Queen of England an iPod and Gordon Brown a set of DVDs (which didn’t work in England’s DVD players) in 2009.

In typical Glenn Beck fashion, the conversation did degenerate into a joke fest at times. Most notable, Glenn asked Stu and Pat if they were “up on their Lang Lang”, to which Stu and Pat said they were up on their KD Lang and Clubber Lang, but, sadly, they did not know much about Lang Lang.

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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
