Glenn remembers JFK

On radio this morning, Glenn marked the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination by reflecting on JFK’s legacy and pondering how we would be accepted in today's political climate.

Today is the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK. We mark the death of JFK as a profound change and an acceleration of our country into darkness. It only takes one event like this to change the world, and this death changed the world.

Make no mistake: JFK was getting ready to run for his second term. He didn't really have any big accomplishments. He is not a guy that was going to be remembered in the history books. Camelot is not true. Camelot is something that was changed after the fact. That was Jackie Kennedy. He had Bay of Pigs. He did bring us through the Cuban missile crisis, but he's not a guy that had accomplished an awful lot.

What was it? What was it that he did do? He had us look up. He had us think big. He had us dream, against all odds. The people in the 1960s that I know, it sounds strange for my kids to even understand, but we didn't think we could go to the moon. The people who are living at that time, who are our age now, they didn't think that they could go to the moon. We take it for granted. We look at it now and my son doesn't understand why we haven't been to Mars. Everything's possible now. It wasn't back then. And so when he stood there in front of Congress and said, "I have a goal that within this decade we land a man on the moon and return him home safely," that was outrageous.

So who was JFK? He's been coopted by the left, but would people like Orrin Hatch, would people like Mitch McConnell even accept a man like John F. Kennedy today? You see, the left will say that, "Well, of course he would be right there with the left today." Well, he might be because when you boil a frog, as long as the water is tepid when he gets in, right? But if you do it slowly, he'll be boiled. But if it's hot, he'll jump out I contend that the water would be so hot right now that JFK, if you could bring him back, if you could bring back the politician that JFK was, he wouldn't be accepted by the Republican Party because he would be a TEA Party radical. He wouldn't even recognize what this country had become. And I'm basing that on his words.

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.

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?
