Meet the patriot who is caring for the National Mall during the gov't shutdown

Meet Chris Cox, a man who has become known as the "Memorial Militia" because he has taken it upon himself to care for and maintain the memorials and monuments on the National Mall during the shutdown. Glenn introduced Chris on Thursday's Glenn Beck Program as someone who internalized President John F. Kennedy's famous words, "Ask not what you country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

Chris initially went to D.C. from his home in South Carolina to patrol the memorials, and after two days on the Mall, he decided to undertake a custodial role because of the accumulating trash, leaves, and overgrowth. He bought a blower and began clearing paths and tidying the area. His mission: Make the Mall look "more like a golf course than a ghetto."

Throughout the week he found enjoyed a primarily warm welcome from Park Services and his fellow citizens. Yesterday, he noticed a large log blocking a path, so he brought his chainsaw and began clearing it so joggers wouldn’t have to jump over it and wheelchairs could get by. Chris explained he spent a couple hours clearing the lofand was given a vote of confidence by most of the officers he came in contact with. One, however, was quite heavy handed.

Chris explained that he will continue his efforts - completely out of pocket - until he is told not to. He views his small actions as a way to serve his country, and he is most honored when veterans approach him and thank him for the work he’s doing. In reality, Chris believes he is the one who should be thanking them. Various people have handed him small donations over the last few days to help cover his expenses.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
