Glenn reacts to 'Lone Survivor' movie trailer

This morning Glenn decided to drop a quick humble brag to Stu who was getting excited to check out the newly released Lone Survivor movie trailer.

"What that just came out today? …I've had it for two days," Glenn said poking Stu.

Lone Survivor is, of course, the movie based off of Marcus Luttrell's book that recounts his story of being the only survivor of the four members of SEAL Team 10 of failed mission Operation Red Wings, June 28, 2005. Marcus is a friend of Glenn's and a consultant on the movie.

"He was a consultant on it and so I asked Marcus timidly a couple of weeks ago," Glenn explained, "he was in my office and he was looking at my bookshelf and he had his back turned to me and I said, "So Marcus, is it — is it right?"  And he looked and he turned around and he just looked at me like he was going to kill me and he went, "Oh, it's right.  It's absolutely accurate."  And I said, "So it's what you envisioned?"  And he said, "No.  It's what I see in my nightmares all the time"."

"I don't know how possibly difficult that must be to actually watch," Stu commented.

Glenn, who will be attending a screening with Marcus and his wife, explained that Marcus's wife, Melanie, had an extremely hard time getting through the movie the first time she watched it.

"She said that she watched it the first time to make sure that it was, you know, accurate and she was watching it from the clinical sense," Glenn explained. "And then they watched it a second time and she said, "I broke down halfway through and I couldn't take it."  She said, "The first time I was just watching it as the action and all the technical stuff."  She said, "The second time it washed over me:  This is my husband.  This is what happened to my husband."  And she said, "It's really powerful and overwhelming"."

Actor Mark Wahlberg will be playing the role of Marcus. The other men of SEAL Team 10 who lost their lives during Operation Red Wing were Mike Murphy, Danny Dietz, and Matt Axelson. They will be played by Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, and Ben Foster.

The movie will hit theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on December 27, 2013 and will be released nationwide on January 1-, 2014.

Watch the trailer below:

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.
