Why were Glenn & Pat teary eyed after listening to a classic song from the ‘70s?

Glenn and Pat shared a nostalgic moment on radio this morning after they coincidently both listened to the same song on their way into work. Listening to the 1978 Ambrosia classic “How Much I Feel” had Glenn a little misty eyed for no discernable reason.

“I was driving in today and I was listening to an old song from the '70s. And it's called ‘How Much I Feel’ by Ambrosia,” Glenn said. “I was sitting in the front of the car, and I'm getting misty-eyed. And I'm thinking to myself, ‘This is the dumbest thing ever. I'm pining for a time that wasn't all that great.’”

“I pulled into the parking lot listening to that song,” Pat added. “What the hell am I pining for? My life is great right now. I have great kids. I have a fabulous wife. I got a great job. What am I thinking about 1979 for – when I made 500 bucks a month?”

Glenn came up with two reasons he looks back so fondly on that time: Life was simpler and the weight of the world wasn’t quite so overwhelming.

“We can think of is two things: It was a simple time, and we didn't have the weight of the world,” Glenn said. “When you're 19-years-old, you think that the world is still your oyster… Everything is a possibility. It's the best part of youth. Everything is a possibility. The older you get, the more you're like, ‘That's not going to happen.’”

With less than a week to go until he turns the big 5-0, Glenn found himself thinking a lot about ways to stay aware, engaged, and impassioned.

“Maybe I'm feeling this way because next week I turn 50,” Glenn said. “Don't let anybody tell you that your future, no matter how old you are, is set in stone. It's not. I was 35 years old [when] I joined AA and I started to change my life. And I remember thinking: I've made far too many mistakes in my life. I have treated people so poorly. Nobody is going to work with me. I'll never be able to change any of that. That's not the image that I have now.”

“I urge anybody who is under 30, think of this: It doesn't matter what you've done before. It doesn't matter what's happened to you. It doesn't matter how much your life has sucked or any of the mistakes,” he concluded. “You could have gotten out of jail yesterday. Good. Start all over again. You have time. You have plenty of time. Start all over again.”

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"

Former Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard and Glenn Beck don't agree much on policy, but they're in lockstep on principles.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Tulsi spoke with Glenn about one of her last acts in Congress, introducing the "Protect Women's Sports Act," which she says would "strengthen, clarify, and uphold the intent of Title IX to provide a level playing field for girls and women in sports." But since then, the Biden administration has gone in the opposite direction, and has supported allowing biological men to compete in women's sports.
