Glenn tours Ground Zero

Glenn was in NYC for radio today and over the weekend he visited Ground Zero for the first time in years – his first visit to the memorial, which opened last fall.

“I found it a disturbing memorial,” Glenn said, “extraordinarily appropriate, but I hated it at the same time.”

Yesterday, Glenn took his kids downtown. They first toured Federal Hall, where George Washington took the oath of office for the first inauguration, gave his inauguration address, and then took everyone down the street to St. Paul’s Church. Glenn explained that St. Paul’s actually owned the field that later became the World Trade Center. “It is the miracle church – the little church that stood,” Glenn said referring to the building having withstood the attacks on 9/11 that took out so many of the surrounding buildings.

“And it was in there that I contend George Washington and our country made a covenant with God,” Glenn explained. “We will be your people if you will be our God.”

Glenn described what it was like visiting the 9/11 Memorial for the first time, and shared his thoughts on the formerly named “Freedom Tower” – which he is less than pleased with. Glenn discussed how World Trade Center 7 was the only building complete thus far, and how his tour guide expressed her thought that they may never be able to complete them because they may never be able to fill them.

He went on to describe how the space where one of the most dangerous buildings use to stand, a building that people had to have hazmat suits on to go into, a W Hotel now stood – open and full of people.

“Meanwhile, the church where we made the covenant was standing there in disarray,” Glenn said.

Glenn was struck by the explanation given by the tour guide as to why St. Paul’s Church was spared during the 9/11 attacks when all of the surrounding buildings were destroys and have their windows blown out. There were a couple of theories: one, a homeless man in the steeple opened a window, which they know now not to be true. The other theory, which is true, is that a tree fell on the church and protected it.

“Oh, it was a tree…” Glen said sarcastically.

The tour guide, who Glenn said was great, didn’t seem to believe it was the “tree” that saved the church any more than Glenn did. She mentioned her faith, and how it was the only thing that allowed her to get through the tragedy of 9/11.  She also told Glenn that they are specifically told in their training not to mention God, but unless she could at least say faith she wouldn’t do it.

Church attendance in the United States was at record highs in the days following 9/11, today tour guides at the memorial aren’t allowed to mention God.

“How upside down are we?” Glenn asked the tour guide.

“Pretty upside down,” she responded.

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
