Kirk Cameron: Monumental

This morning on radio actor Kirk Cameron  joined Glenn on radio to discuss his upcoming documentary, Monumental, which will air in 500 theaters nationwide as a live one time only event on March 27th.

“This is A) a great movie to see. B) a great movie to bring your kids to, and teach them about the history of our country, and C) it is important, because we need to start supporting people that are doing things like this,” Glenn said about the movie.

Glenn also told his radio audience that if Monumental is a success it will lead to even more from the filmmaker. “Kirk has huge plans from here,” Glenn said. “This has to be a success, and there’s reason for this to be successful.”

Monumental describes Kirk’s year and a half long journey to figure out what is really going on in our country, where we have gone astray, and how we, as individuals, play an important role in getting America headed back in the right direction.

Kirk's interest in politics began when, as a father concerned for his children's future, he became deeply concerned about the direction the country was taking.

“I’m trying to figure out what I can do. While news is filled with people who are blaming one another for the problems, I’m looking for a solution that will really work. I figured, maybe you go and talk to the men and women who built this place. Maybe our forefathers would have something to say about what we’re doing wrong, and what we need to do to fix it. So I went on this journey to retrace the escape route of the pilgrims out of England,” Kirk explained.

Kirk traced the Pilgrims from England to Holland, where they stayed under the care of their pastor, John Robinson, and learned the nation-building principals. They brought those principals to America on The Mayflower, laying the foundation for what came to be the freest, strongest, and most secure nation in the world.

So what were the principles that the pilgrims used to create the foundation of the greatest country the world has ever seen?

“It is immortalized in 180 tons of granite, sitting on a hill in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and I want to reveal it to all of you by taking you on the same journey I went on,” Kirk explained.

Kirk describes the monument by saying, “It lays out the strategy of a free and just society, so that if we ever lose our way we can find our way back by coming to this giant monstrous piece of granite. And hardly anyone knows it's there.”

“You could look here, and restart it all,” Glenn said.

Both Glenn and Kirk agree that the only way to get America headed back in the right direction is to by fixing ourselves, our families, and our communities.

“Long lasting change for the good is not going to start in the Oval Office, it's got to start at the kitchen table,” Kirk said. “It’s not something that can be turned around in four years. It took a lot longer to get this way. It’s like turning around a giant barge in the ocean. It’s going to take a while. But, if we start now I think we can do it. And pray, because I don’t think that people have the willpower and the stamina, and the courage, the virtue, and the character to make it happen over the course of the next couple of generations without the power of God working in their hearts.”

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
