"We have to be the people who show the new way": Glenn joins Tea Party leaders in effort to clean up D.C. monuments

In Washington DC this morning, Glenn joined Mike Lee, Matt Kibbe, and leaders and members of the Tea Party Patriots and Freedom Works for a gathering on Capitol Hill.

The National Day of Service kicked off with a few short speeches, with Glenn delivering the last address to those who came out to pick up trash on The Mall. In his speech, Glenn focused on the lack of trust between the American people and the progressives running Washington DC, and he made a point to criticize both the Republicans and Democrats for causing the problems facing the country.

“It’s about being authentic, it’s about being real,” Glenn said. “That’s the problem with our country. Who trusts us? Our own people don’t trust us.”

Glenn wondered how anyone could even begin to negotiate a deal that would end the government shutdown when the President and his administration wasn’t acting in good faith. He pointed to reports that President Obama had “essentially rejected everything offered by House Republicans leaders in their proposal.”

Despite the tough times currently facing the country, Glenn said that things were going to be fine and that we were at a pivotal point in history.

“We’re at an amazing point. The whole world is going to change, the system doesn’t work,” Glenn said. “We’re not doing anything worldwide on principle so the West will reset.”

He emphasized that there was nothing to be afraid of as long as we all stick together, paraphrasing Benjamin Franklin’s “: We all better hang together or we’ll certainly all hang separately.”

Glenn then told the story of the origins of the Republican Party and the end of the Whig party. The old Whig Party fell apart over the issue of slavery, with a small group of anti-slavery members disrupting the Whigs and forcing many of the party leaders out of office. Many of the anti-slavery members ended up joining the newly formed Republican Party, led by Abraham Lincoln.

Today, Glenn argued, America is at a very similar point in history. A small group of principled politicians in the House and Senate are standing up for what they believe in, and as a result they are disrupting the progressives who are at the head of both the Republicans and Democrats.

“We have a virtual one party system,” Glenn said. “But it’s all coming undone.”

“Today I bring you good news. This things over,” he continued. Glenn said that the leaders on both side know that common sense is starting to kick in and people are recognizing the failure of leadership coming from the progressive.

“We have to be people who show the new way, a better way, where we treat people with respect,” he said. “Let’s live like free men. Let’s live like decent Americans.”

As the speeches wound down, the gathered crowd headed to the Mall to clean up the monuments. Since the beginning of the government shutdown, the Mall and the monuments have been closed to the public because the government cannot maintain them and pick up the trash that comes with tourists.

The clean up effort was inspired by South Carolinian Chris Cox who has been mowing the lawn and picking up trash around the Mall to keep it from falling into “a disgraceful state.”

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.
