More uncertainty in Japan

Last night on TV, Glenn gave an explanation for how a nuclear reactor worked. Using M&M’s  and kitchen utensils (seriously) he demonstrated all the lines of defense present in the nuclear reactors in Japan and how safe they really are. It’s taken a once in a thousand lifetime sized earthquake to put the reactor in as bad shape as it is now. But what has happened in Japan since the show ended last night?

“So here's what happened last night, in between the time of the TV show and now, there has been another explosion.  And as we explained last night and I showed you the many containers, the outside container which is not really meant for protection of anything, I mean in anything significant, that's what's been blowing off.  And so it's not part of the containment system.  And I said last night as long as the containment system remains intact, you're okay,” Glenn said.

“The fuel rods can melt down.  You're going to have ‑‑ you know, you're going to have leakage in the air, et cetera, et cetera, but you're not talking about a nuclear explosion,” Glenn explained.

“So the design of this nuclear power plant is for the rods, in worst‑case scenario, melt down and then they just burn into this floor which supposedly is not ‑‑ you are not supposed to be able to burn through,” he said, noting that this is based on information he’s heard (you can read some of his sources here)

Glenn continued by explaining that as long as the giant steel and concrete containment units surrounding the rods cracked as a result of an explosion yesterday. “We don't know how bad, we don't know what it is,” Glenn said.

But does the disaster in Japan mean that we should stop investigating the use of nuclear energy here in America? Glenn doesn’t think so.

“Now, if the media wants to do something decent, stop talking to me about how there might be an earthquake in Minot, North Dakota where they're X number of miles away from a nuclear power plant.  For the love of Pete, yes.  And you know what?  Monkeys could fly out of my butt at any moment, too, and that would be a really bad scenario,” Glenn joked.

“Where is the media showing us the hope?” Glenn asked.

“Where is that plan?  Why doesn't the United States say, you know what?  We're going to ship all the lead over, get it over from wherever,” Glenn asked.

Glenn continued, “And we'll get the lead and hammer it out into the fine sheets that you need.  China, you can get, you know, the people over there that can weld it.  You know, let's ‑‑ is there anybody working on that plan and take that stress off of Japan?  Wouldn't that be helpful to do as the international community that everybody loves so much?”

And, of course, Glenn is the crazy person for telling people to prepare for any possible scenario by stocking up on food? As Pat pointed out, reports are coming out that grocery shelves are starting to go bare in Japan.

And what about the impact on energy?

“Japan now, gets 30%, I think, of all of their energy from nuclear power.  When they don't have nuclear power, they are going to have to burn something.  They are going to burn more oil,” Glenn continued

“All these oil rigs, we don't know if they're even safe yet.  We don't know if they're going to be opened up again or when they're going to be opened up.  They are already saying we're going to need to import more oil than we ever have before.  Is anybody talking about how Libya, their oil fields are basically shut down at this point?  That's 3% of the world's oil.  Where are you getting the oil?”

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?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
