Marcus Luttrell opens up about the man who saved his life

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to his good friend Marcus Luttrell about the man who saved his life – Mohammed Gulab. If you have read Marcus’ book, Lone Survivor, you are familiar with the iatrical role Gulab played in aiding Marus and the team that came to rescue him in the aftermath of the failed Operation Redwing. Since that day, Gulab and his family have been under increased threat, and with the release of the movie adaptation of Lone Survivor due out in December, Marcus is looking to bring his friend to the United States to ensure his safety.

“[Marcus] happened to fall into this village, and the guy who was really his savior was Mohammed Gulab,” Glenn said. “And this guy is now entering a situation where he's known as the guy who saved Marcus Luttrell, and when the movie comes out, it will only get more dangerous for him over there. He is coming over to the United States for a visit. I would like to see that we could get a Green Card for him because he is increasingly in more and more danger and he saved, not only a friend of mine, but he saved… a man I believe is an American hero.”

Gulab will be arriving in Houston, Texas this week for a short visit with Marcus, but Marus explained that his friend is not looking to cut corners or gain U.S. citizenship – he is simply looking for safety on a temporary basis.

“[Gulab is] probably the most honorable man I know, other than my brother – willing to hang it on the line for a total and complete stranger… He hadn't had any problems before I rolled in there. But since then, his family members have been killed; his house has been burned down… They try to kill him daily,” Marcus explained. “With the release of the movie, we want to get him back over here, so he can ride it out… Everybody talks about him becoming an American citizen, but he's a proud Afghani. If he did come over here, it would all have to be the right way, the legit way, following every rule because that's just the way he is. He doesn't cut any corners and he doesn't believe in that.”

The future of Afghanistan is unkown. Marcus explained that when the U.S. military pulls out of the country, there is a very probable chance the futile democracy will crumble and Gulab’s safety will be less certain.

“I'm surprised he made it this long without our help. So if anybody deserves any kind of asylum or our help, it's him,” Marcus said. “He not only saved my life – the people who rescued me, the Rangers and Green Berets, he's been helping out with intelligence for our government to chase down bad guys over there. So I wouldn't understand if they denied him, when most people can just walk over here freely.”

Glenn asked Marcus to explain one of the more interesting facets of his relationship with Gulab. The men speak on the phone on a regular basis despite the fact that they do not speak the same language.

“Does he speak English at all,” Glenn asked. “Because I know he speaks Pashto.”

“No, he's got fragments here and there,” Marcus explained. “This may sound funny, but it all falls back to when I was in that village for that week. I just go off the inflection in his voice, and he goes off of mine. I just kind of can understand where he's coming from, what he's trying to say to me, and how things are going out there just by the way he talks to me. That's how close we became… It's crazy how close you can become to somebody when they are a lifeline, when you absolutely positively have to hang on to every word they say, every emotion they throw out, just because you think they are going to keep you alive.”

“I think this is the spirit of speaking tongues,” Glenn surmised. “You can understand him, he can understand you, but you don't speak a word of the language. I think it's a God thing and a heart thing, Marcus.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
