What's the best movie of the summer according to Glenn?

Glenn had some down time this weekend, and he decided to take his wife on a date to go see the movie Moneyball. What did he think?

"Best movie I've seen in a long time.  I'm taking everybody on staff," he said.

"This is an incredible movie.  It is absolutely everything that I have been trying to explain.  When I say spit yourself out of the system, this is exactly what I mean.  It's exactly what I mean.  The whole world is being redesigned.  The whole world is unsustainable.  Everything you knew in business, every old ‑‑ every system is not going to work.  Spit yourself out of the system and redesign it now.  Turn it upside down now before it's turned upside down on you anyway.  This is the nonrevolutionary side of my message.  This is the smart businessman part of the message," Glenn said.

The movie deals with coach Billy Bean putting together a team of inexpensive (and somewhat unwanted) players using statistics rather than some of the traditional scouting practices. The team ends up being very successful despite its lack of big name players.

While Glenn hadn't read the book, Stu explained that the overall message was about finding a way to succeed by thinking outside the box.

"It was a bunch of players that nobody wanted and ‑‑ because they kind of figured out a better system, they were able to bring them together to form a winning team cheaply.  You know, going against all sort of predetermined thinking.  And that's the message of that book.  It's really not about baseball.  It's about thinking outside of the box.  It's about coming up with something that no one else has seen," Stu said.

"I wish I would have known something about baseball because, oh, my gosh.  I would have been on this story a long time ago.  You've got to go see this movie.  You haven't seen it yet; you have to go see this movie.  If you want to know the nonrevolutionary terms of what I mean on the world's going to change and don't let it change on you, everything you think you know is about to change, this is it," Glenn said.

"This is the more optimistic, 'Hey, we're still going to be playing baseball' kind of message that I'm not sure is exactly true, but hypothetically I'll say the ballparks are still open in my world," he joked.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

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?"
