Gary Sinise talks about his mission to raise awareness for and honor our veterans

On radio this morning, conservative actor and musician Gary Sinise joined Glenn to talk about a wonderful partnership he has forged between the Gary Sinise Foundation and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation called Building for America’s Bravest. The project is aimed at honoring and supporting our nation’s heroes.

“I have a great partnership between my foundation, Gary Sinise Foundation, and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in New York,” Gary explained. “And we created a program called Building for America's Bravest. It's a home building program to address the special home needs of our very, very severely wounded warriors. And we have concerts going all over the country. I have a great band, Gary Sinise and Lieutenant Dan Band. We go all over the world doing shows for our military and veteran communities. And for the Building for America's Bravest program. And one of our warriors, Travis Green, is somebody we're building for in the San Antonio area and we have a concert on Friday night at the Lila Cockrell Theater. We want everybody in that area to come out and support this great American.”

Gary went on to talk about how he has really began to devote himself to helping veterans and their families.

“At the Gary Sinise Foundation our charge is to serve and honor the needs of our military men and women, our First Responders, our wounded, our gold star families. And I do that on a very, very regular basis. I leave tonight to go to D.C. to do some events. Then I'm in San Antonio on Friday for a concert there for Travis Green. Then on Saturday I'm in Dallas for a big event there called Skyball, which is a big military support event,” he said. “And I'm just constantly on the road doing this stuff right now. CSI New York got cancelled. So, you know, I'm spending all my time on this. To come on your show and to be able to talk about Travis Green, what he's given for his country and to encourage people in San Antonio to buy some tickets and come on out. It's not that expensive and the money goes to help support this great American who's given his limbs for our country and he's got a family and we want to help him out as we want to help so many of our wounded. You can look at the Building for America's Bravest program on the Gary Sinise Foundation website.”

For those who will not be able to attend Gary’s upcoming events in Texas, there are still ways for you to get involved in this great cause.

“You can donate at GarySiniseFoundation.org. Like I said, we're doing these homes all over. I've done 20 concerts in the last 18, 19 months just for the wounded. I have three more concerts this year for our Building for America's Bravest program,” Gary said. “We're going to chip away next year and do as many as we can. This is just, you know, this is an important part of my life and I feel we always have to recognize our veterans for what they do for us. We have to keep our military strong.”

“Gary, thank you so much,” Glenn said. “And thank you for all of your service, and, quite honestly, just the way you seem to live your life. You're a decent, decent man and we appreciate it.”

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
