Glenn: We do need a fundamental transformation

We all remember the eerie words then-Senator Barack Obama delivered on the waning days of the 2008 campaign trail:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

In a surprising turn of events, Glenn found himself agreeing with the President on radio this morning… kind of.

“I wrote some notes yesterday, while listening to some church talks. I don't know who was even speaking, and I don't know what I actually heard,” Glenn said. “But this is what I wrote down: Transformation is good and it is needed.”

Yes, that’s right, Glenn found himself writing that our country is indeed in need of a transformation, though its doubtful it’s the same kind of transformation the President had in mind.

“Now, I can't believe I wrote those words because we've been talking about fundamental transformation for awhile,” Glenn said. “But you know what? Fundamental transformation is what we need. We do need a fundamental transformation… But it's not the kind that we're getting.”

President Obama has become known for his apologist tendencies – in many cases telling our enemies they are justified in their disdain for America. While Glenn agreed there is plenty of evil in America’s past, he disagreed with the President’s tactics.

“There are a couple of things that our President has tried to do. He's gone around the world apologizing. He's gone around the world, gone around our country and told us how bad we are as a nation. And in some things, not the things that he talks about usually, but I've done much of the same thing. I've talked about how bad we've been in certain things,” Glenn explained. “What we did to the Native Americans; what we did to African-Americans. Horrible. The way we've behaved in the Middle East, not as our soldiers but as our government, in our lifetimes. Horrible. What we're currently doing. Horrible. And there's something to say for bringing shame and sorrow on to ourselves to see what we have done.”

“Sorrow is good when it breaks a nation and then empowers them to be better than they ever were. But when sorrow is turned into guilt and someone uses guilt to destroy, to pin down, to create more hardship and more sorrow and more anger and divisiveness, it's wrong,” Glenn said. “We do need a fundamental transformation, we do. I don't know if this generation will get there. I fear it won't. But I hope it does. We have to look for those things that are authentic, real, true, and everlasting. Will we ever really be able to connect with the things that we hold self-evident… We have to build a better man, a better person inside each of us. And when we do, people will want to be a part of that. We have to be people of decency. We have to be a people of honor, charity, and a people of big vision. A brighter tomorrow is on the horizon, should we choose it.”

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
