We have a choice: Love or Hate

Glenn recounts a recent incident that he’s seen too many times. Walking down the street, with his family, and someone who disagrees with him politically starts viciously berating him. Pat was also with Glenn and wanted to give this person a piece of his mind - how did Glenn respond? The way he hopes to teach his kids how to respond.

Glenn explained that during a trip to Anchorage with Pat and his family for an event, a woman started yelling at him and calling him a "hater" and a "racist". He was walking with Pat, his son Raphe, and his small security team.

As security moved to get Glenn and Raphe to safety, Glenn stopped and simply responded to her: I love you.

At first she was undeterred, but after three times of her shouting and Glenn only responding with love she stopped.

"What was true in the end, if we were both stripped down and we had nothing but the essence of who we are, it is true. If we were both at the pearly gates, we wouldn't be arguing about politics. I would tell her I love her. If she were laying in the streets bleeding to death, I would help her."

"When you get down and you have nothing left, that's when you realize you're either love or hate. And I refuse to be hate. I don't want it. I don't want it in my life. I'm tired. I'm tired of it. And love has an amazing power."

"We think we're not teaching our kids. We think we've blown it. Well, here's your opportunity. My son, I don't know what my children are going to think. I really don't. We shield them from an awful lot, and maybe I'm making the same mistake that so many of us make on September 11th. I think I'm protecting them, but maybe I'm not. My son said, 'why, dad? Why do people say that about you?' I said that I had the strength to say that because of my son. I wanted him to know. I wanted him to see the difference. How do you respond? I wanted him to see hatred and love side by side and let him choose. Which did he want?"

"Day before yesterday, I come home, I'm dead‑tired after the show, long day, not feeling well, and I get home and I have meetings that night at the house. The guys from the offices in New York are in. We're working on so many different things and my wife had just said, 'This is the last meeting at the house.' And I said, 'I know, honey.' She said, 'We've got to have the family time.' I said, 'I know.' And she was right. And we eat and then I go into my office and Joe writes and says, 'Glenn, we can pull this off if you can find the trucks' and so I tweet from my office. And I call my wife in and I said, 'Honey, I think we're going to go to Oklahoma tonight.'"

"Now, it's 8:00. Just finishing up my meeting. Supposed to read to my son. We're on I think Book 7 of the Lemony Snicket. And I go into my bedroom and I start to pack. And my son comes in and he's in his pajamas and he's holding his Series of Unfortunate Events in his hand and in such an honest way, he comes in and he said, 'Dad, why do you have to leave?'"

"I got down on my knees with him and I said, 'Do you see the pictures that we watched together on television when I came home? Do you see what's happening?' He said yes. And I said, 'That's not just something on television. That's real. And those people don't have any food. They don't have any water. They don't have anything. Their dads can't tuck them into bed and read to them. I have to go because that's what we're supposed to do, Raphe.' So proud of him. He just gave me a hug, told me he loved me, and I told him I loved him and we'd read tomorrow night."

"I got home yesterday blurry‑eyed. I could barely stay awake. I read to him. I'm not sure if the book completely made sense the way I was reading it. I don't know if you've ever read to your kids when you're really, really tired and you're like, 'And then cat... fishbowl... I put on my pants...'."

"But we teach our kids. We teach our kids exactly who we are, by what we do and what we say. They are always watching."

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.
