The timing seems incredible - the NRA convention is in Houston and all of a sudden a crazy man comes running into the Houston airport with an AR-15 and shoots it into the air. The shooter ended up putting the gun down, pulling out another and committing suicide. Glenn went over the details on this story and gave some of his own analysis on radio.

According to KHOU-TV, 29-year-old Carnell Moore of Beaumont,TX posted two "cryptic messages" on Facebook:

Moore posted two cryptic messages on his Facebook wall Wednesday: “This Life Will Crash Tomorrow!” and “I recently had the chance of staring death in the face, and she was beautiful.”

Glenn said that he didn't think there was anything "cryptic" about those comments and that it should have set off alarm bells among some of his friends. He also thought the timing of the incident happening during the NRA was almost too incredible to believe.

"I'm sorry, but I find it a little hard to believe that somehow you or another the NRA convention was happening here and somebody would come into town you from out of town, grab a hotel room and then decide to kill themselves in the airport after firing an an AR‑15," he said. "What are the odds on that one?  Somebody call Vegas."

"Amazing coincidence at least," Pat said.

One detail that Glenn felt didn't quite add up was the fact that he wanted to commit suicide by cop, but ended up killing himself before the police did.

"I said immediately, I said, this sounds like a guy who wanted to die, shot them up in the air because he could do death by cop.  But what didn't work on that piece of the scenario is why did he shoot himself.  If you're too much of a coward to do it, you go to the airport and you shoot up in the air and you have a gun and you're wielding it and you've already demonstrated that you'll shoot, and you'll be shot.  Now, why would you then shoot yourself?  That's the only thing, you're saying in your suicide note, I'm going to have the cops help me with that.  Well, you didn't.  You could have done that in your hotel room," Glenn said.

And while Glenn did say that he felt it would be a huge coincidence that this would happen in the same town at the same time as the NRA, it's equally possible that Moore was just crazy.

Glenn emphasized that there were still lots of unanswered questions and that he was simply speculating and looking for answers, and that the journalists at TheBlaze.com will remain focused on reporting the facts of the case as they come in.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
