Secession talk grows to all 50 states

All the talk of secession has spread through the United States like wildfire. It’s really something that shouldn’t be taken lightly - after all, conservatives mocked Alec Baldwin for claiming he’d leave the states if Bush won. Why are they now lining up to secede? The bigger question Glenn has: why in the world would you sign that petition? On the White House website?

"I'm having an argument with a dear friend of mine who wants to sign this petition at WhiteHouse.gov to secede and I'm like, 'Stop.' She said, 'I'm not going to do nothing. I've got to do something. I'm not going to just sit around and do nothing. This is for my grandchildren and my children.' And I'm like, 'No. No.'" Glenn said. "You're giving your name to data collectors."

"There's nothing on the positive side," Stu added. He pointed out that even if the petition gets a lot of signatures, President Obama isn't going to suddenly tell states to leave.

"What about Iowa? Can Iowa sustain themselves?" Pat asked. "California would not be able to do it now with all the help they are getting. Texas is probably the only state that could sustain itself."

Texas does have a significant number of resources, including natural gas and oil. They also have their own state-controlled power grid. All of that plus a booming economy that has added over a million jobs while the rest of the country has been embroiled in a recession.

"I think there's a general frustration with the government that gets, you know, illustrated by things like this. But the vast majority of people want to make America better. We love America," Stu said.

"Here's what's really interesting. This is the difference between progressives and conservatives or libertarians. We say we want to secede. The progressives say I'm moving to France. We don't want to move to France. We want to live here. We love it here. We love the Constitution. We want to live here, under our Constitution. You want to live in France. So when you want to make us France or China, we say there's already that country. You should go try that country because you'll love it," Glenn said.

Glenn then got serious, saying the calls for secession show a growing frustration among conservatives who are for freedom, and part of that freedom involves not being trapped when blue states vote to put the country on a path of progressivism.

"We want to live our life a certain way. That's why we came here. If you don't like it, that's fine. And that's why when people said peaceful secession, I believe they really mean it. I don't really care what happens to Massachusetts. I don't. I don't. I want the people to be happy and everything else. But I never fought them on universal healthcare in Massachusetts. If that's what you want, that's fine. California, I love California. Massachusetts, not so much. California I love. I've always wanted to live in California. I love to visit California. Not so much lately, but I like to visit. I have always wanted to live there. I would build my company there if it wasn't so crazy. But it is. Okay, so it's crazy. You want to vote crazy? Vote crazy all you want. I'm not paying for it," Glenn said.

"We're not talking about getting rid of the United States of America. We're saying we want to be separate and independent states. We want to work together. We'll still be a union. I don't have a problem with California. Don't tell me what to do with my land and my town. We're making that decision. That's what's made us unique," Glenn said.

"Yeah, it's the constitutional argument. We'd love to have a place where everybody, all the states work together and that the federal government does the things that, you know, we give it power to do, such as national defense. The major big things that we do together." Stu clarified.

"Right," Glenn said.

"And we disagree. I disagree with the people in California, Massachusetts with the choices that they are making tore their own state. I go there and I think you're nuts. But that's okay. That's your right to be nuts," Glenn said. "I don't want to be a separate country. I really don't. I'm proud to be an American. I don't want to be a separate country. I just want to honor the Constitution. And many states are no longer honoring the Constitution. The federal government is no longer honoring the Constitution. That's what we mean. Honor the Constitution. The Constitution now and forever."

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?"
