Glenn draws comparisons between Chris Christie and Neil Armstrong after amazing speech

There were several great speeches coming out of the opening night of RNC speeches - but none has generated more chatter among political junkies that Chris Christie's keynote. Some have said he sounded too much like the nominee that a supporter, claiming that he frequently referenced himself rather than praising Romney. Others thought the speech was simply "good", but Glenn thought it was one of the best speeches he had ever heard and that it evoked memories of some famous American icons.

"I thought he was off the charts last night," Glenn said.

"His message was right on target, I thought. It was firm, yet optimistic. He didn't go after Barack Obama, which I found extraordinarily refreshing, yet you knew exactly what he was talking about. It was, I thought, deep and yet accessible. He was a guy I thought last night that would appeal directly to the Reagan Democrat, to somebody who just doesn't watch politics very much, and they could understand it. He voiced the direction of the country in a way that the average person could access. Which I thought was fantastic."

While Stu and Pat thought it was good, neither of them were blown away and felt that it was a little rushed.

Nevertheless, portions of the speech reminded Glenn of a letter written by Neil Armstrong, where the deceased astronaut called for Americans to look forward to the future.

Glenn read three of powerful paragraphs from the letter on radio:

In my work I depended on many people. In space flight, whether it be a fellow crewman or a flight controller in mission control on Earth, I was often trusting that person with my life. When you depend on others, you want to be able to trust them. You'll want to know that they say what they mean and they mean what they say. And they will want to feel the same about you. Your word should always be beyond question.

There is much uncertainty to life. Good health may be taken away from you without warning. Material possessions may be lost due to circumstances beyond your control. The one thing that cannot be taken from you without your consent is your character, which includes your beliefs, your ethics, and your principles. So guard them with care. They are your most valuable possessions.

The 21st century has much promise. Remarkable things may be created and achieved, and each of you will have the opportunity to play a role in achieving and creating a better world. I know you will true. Good luck. I wish I had your future.

Neil Armstrong

 

"That's incredible. That's one of the most powerful three paragraphs I've ever read in any letter. That is so powerful, and that is the message that I think that Chris Christie was delivering last night. I wish I had your future. There is a brighter tomorrow. It's not on the path that we're currently walking down, but there is a brighter tomorrow. And all it requires is the truth and common sense," Glenn said.

Last night, Christie told the audience, "Now, we believe that the majority of teachers in America know our system must be reformed, to put students first so that America can compete. Now, teachers don't teach to become rich or famous. They teach because they love children.e believe that we should honor and reward the good ones while doing what's best for our nation's future, demanding accountability, demanding higher standards, and demanding the best teacher in every classroom in America. Get ready. Get ready. Here's what they believe. They believe the educational establishment will always put themselves ahead of children. The self interests will always trump common sense. They believe in pitting unions against teachers, educators against parents, lobbyists against children. They believe in teachers unions. We believe in teachers."

"Outrageous. Outrageous. I mean just one of the best speeches I've ever heard. And exactly right for the times. I thought the right tone, the right tenor, the right verbiage, everything," Glenn said

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.
