Glenn: You were born to do incredible work

As you may have heard, Glenn welcomed his first grandchild into the world yesterday - beautiful baby girl named Lorelai Rose DiDonato. On radio this morning, Glenn reflected on the experience of bringing a child into the world and the incredible joy and optimism that comes along with it.

"I got to tell you, yesterday was the birth of my granddaughter who is beautiful,” Glenn said. “She was laughing, and she was smiling. And she's perfect in every way. She's perfect.”

Glenn explained that he was talking to a friend recently who has been really down on his luck. He has been out of work, and he is discouraged. But Glenn decided it was time to change the tone of the conversation from despair to hope.

“I said to him, ‘Flip this around. Congratulations!’ He said, ‘What?’ I said, ‘Congratulations. You weren't happy there anyway. You weren't happy. That's not what you wanted to do. You now have the opportunity to start your life over again. The universe or God, whatever you want to call it, has just handed you this opportunity to be the authentic you, to reach inside of yourself and really be you,’” Glenn explained. “He's always wanted to be in business for himself. He's got dreams, aspirations. Go do them. Now is the chance to do them because everybody else is going to be cookie cutter. You are going to go to another job, live in fear of losing that job, and it will be another job you don't want. Take off your mask.”

While Glenn would not necessarily describe himself as a Marianne Williamson fan, he did find great truth in a quote he was recently sent of hers.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

“I watched my grandchild yesterday. May I learn from her what it is like to be childlike again. We surrounded my daughter's bed yesterday and held hands as a family, and we prayed. We gave glory to the creator of the universe and gave Him grateful thanks for entrusting this little child to us and begged for his strength to raise her back to Him,” Glenn said. “And in that prayer, I begged the Lord: I know you sent her to us for a reason, and I know she has much to teach us. Please, let us be humble enough to see the lessons that come from her. She's a powerful spirit. Every child that is born today is born for a reason. They have something inside of them they are supposed to do, and it is important work.”

“It's easy to think that about your children. Start thinking about that with you because you were born for some incredible work,” he concluded. “I don't know what it is, but you were supposed to do something. Free yourself of fear and do it. Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
