Glenn: No matter how hard you try, you leave a mark on your kid.

"I am George Washington."

"When I wrote those words in the book Being George Washington a few years ago, partly I did it to raise some eyebrows but mainly I wrote it to make a point. I am George Washington. You are George Washington. At least we should all be striving to be George Washington or Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther King or even Edward Janssen of 118th Avenue in Puyallup, Washington."

"Edward Janssen was my grandfather. I want to be like my grandfather. I spent a lot of time this weekend thinking about my children and being a dad. Being a dad is so hard. I don't know if anybody else thinks this, but it is so damn hard. It's the hardest thing I do. I can do just about anything without even thinking, and being a dad is I caught myself a couple of weeks ago telling my daughter who is now pregnant that I'm excited to be a grandfather because I know how to do that. I know how to do that because of my grandfather, Edward Janssen. I had a good grandpa."

"I know how to be a grandpa. But I'm a good dad too. I have to start saying that out loud. It's hard. I've always thought even when Pat and I were together and Pat would see me in the drinking days, I used to always think that I was a better person and a better dad when I was drunk because I could slow down enough. But I wasn't obviously. But what I was was less self conscious about, I wasn't so fixated on me. I wasn't people are not awkward around kids. I am. I don't ever know what to do around kids. Even when I was little, I was better around adults. In fact, you know, moms used to like me and I think that's why dads didn't like me. Because I knew how to work the system, and I was better with adults than I was with kids."

"But I thought about it last week. I was not really ever good with dads. I'm not sure if dads just saw through my bullcrap. I think now that I'm a dad, that's probably what it was. Dads have just this vision, they see through the bullcrap. Or it's because I didn't relate to dads. I don't ever feel like I know what to say or do. Are we that different from each other? Is it just that we all have some area in our life like this and mine just happens to be, I don't know, not making my kids cry all the time by saying we're all gonna die? Is that what it is? We just all this different skills?"

"We have different tastes, we have different skills, we have different likes and dislikes. We may have grown up decades apart on the other side of the continent or entirely different faiths and social levels, but really in the end we are so very much alike. We've all done things we wish we hadn't have done and do things we wish we had. We talk too much and ponder too little. We hurt others when we hurt and argue over stupid things, like working too much at the job or not working enough at home. And we, all of us, lay down at night and we worry. What happens if I lose my job? I've got to be better. I've got to keep my eyes open during the ballet recital and let it imprint on me so I can recall every detail when she gets off the stage. Was I too harsh when I scolded them the other day or not harsh enough. Crap. That's gonna leave a mark. And you know it will because it left one on you. I don't want to be like my dad and, holy cow, I've turned into my dad. No matter how hard you try, it seems you leave a mark on your kid."

"Hannah, my second oldest who is now pregnant with my first grandchild, was driving home with me the other day, and she started talking about Prince Eric and it took me a while to remember who Prince Eric was. And she said, man, Dad, you know, that was way too soon when you told me about Prince Eric. I'm like, what are you talking about, Prince Eric? 'My goldfish.' I said, 'Your goldfish?' 'You don't remember Prince Eric?' And I'm like, 'Oh, yes, I do remember Prince Eric. Prince Eric was the goldfish. You had Ariel. It was right after The Little Mermaid came out and you had Ariel and Prince Eric'.

"'And Ariel died, like, on the first day and you were so traumatized. And then you went to school and Prince Eric died. And so I went and got another Prince Eric and just put Prince Eric in there. And that damn goldfish died, like, eight or ten times and I kept replacing him, and you kept coming to me going, 'Dad, look how fat Prince Eric got from breakfast this morning.' And then he would suddenly lose weight and then he would have a spot where he didn't have a spot. And she thought she was the greatest goldfish keeper of all time."

"For years I kept Prince Eric alive by replacing him and flushing the dead Prince Eric down the toilet before she would get home. She was 13 years old. Prince Eric had finally kicked the bucket about 10 and she's 13. And we're laughing and talking about it, and she talked about what a great person she was. She could have goldfish because she wanted to get more goldfish because she could keep them alive unlike anybody else. And I just started to laugh. And she said, 'What?' And I said, 'Let me tell you a little bit about Prince Eric.'"

"And she said, 'Dad, all I remember is just thinking, Oh, dear God, this is too soon. I don't know what he's going to say, but it's too soon.' And I'm like, 'You were 13. You can get over the damn goldfish that I replaced.'"

"The whole point of this is sometimes, sometimes you're not just the best father. Sometimes you try to do the right thing because you're trying to protect your kids, and for some reason or another it doesn't work out so well."

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
