WATCH: Powerful new commercials preach "work is a beautiful thing"

A new crop of commercials is drawing on values of hard work and ingenuity that once made America great. A new ad for the Cadillac ELR is aimed at “workers, not wishers.” Walmart, meanwhile, released what has become a controversial ad featuring Mike Rowe. It contains one powerful message: “Work is a beautiful thing.” On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the pro-work message.

The Cadillac ELR is a new electric vehicle from the brand. While Cadillac was part of the infamous government auto bailout, the commercial explains that it is an unmatched work ethic and desire for more that got a man to the moon and made Americans the world’s best consumers.

“I want to point out Cadillac got a… bailout from us. I'm tired of people telling me, preaching to me, ‘We're the greatest country in the world because we just get it done. By the way, thanks for the billions of dollars of bailout because we just couldn't get it done,’” Glenn said. “[But] I want you to listen to this [commercial] and tell me that this isn't what America is starving for."

Watch the commercial below:

This is a message that President Ronald Reagan eloquently delivered, and it took him all the way to White House. Glenn believes Americans are desperate to hear those ideals once again, but it is unclear who is in a position to deliver them.

“This is what Reagan won on because he believed it. We are repeating the 1970s, and they don't even see it. Remember, we went from Nixon, who was just riddled with corruption, riddled with progressivism…  He really washed our innocence away… So then we went from Nixon to Ford, who was just an imbecile, into the socialist country of America, the socialist direction of Jimmy Carter,” Glenn said. “Jimmy Carter was telling us, ‘Put a sweater on.’ Americans don't put a sweater on. Americans go find new energy.  That's what we do… If you give a man a handout, he loses a piece of himself. He loses self-respect. You have to earn it. This is the winning message."

“Now, I don't know who is going to come and deliver that message to America,” he continued. “But if we really want to survive, if we really want to make a difference, we will hear that message. That message is the message that will win in every place, every place. It will win.”

Pat and Stu both pointed out that Cadillac is a higher end car manufacturer, and the base price of the ELR is $75,995. Is this message of hard work and dedication one that is purely aimed at the wealthy?

“Is it notable at all that this is a commercial targeted at Cadillac buyer – somewhat of an upscale buyer,” Stu said. “This message in our past resonates to Chevy buyers, and Ford buyers, and Kia buyers, anybody. This should be the message that resonates with every American.

“I think it does,” Glenn interjected. “I don't think this is a rich man's [message]. This is an American message.”

Another commercial that gained a tremendous amount of attention is Mike Rowe’s appearance in a new Walmart ad called “I am a factory.” It coincided with the launch of Walmart’s initiative to purchase $250 billion of American-made products over the next 10 years. Many have since criticized Rowe for partnering with the retail giant because he is supposed to champion the little guy. Not standing by idly, however, Rowe has since released an epic response.

“Play the Mike Rowe ad for Walmart,” Glenn said. “He's getting crap because ‘Oh, Walmart. Why are you with Goliath instead of David?’ He said there's nothing inherently good about being small or inherently bad about being big. And it's true. It's absolutely true. Life is what you make of it.”

Check out the 60-second spot below:

“If Walmart is putting $250 billion into getting Americans back to work,” Pat said. “How do you bash them for that? Because they' so big? It is bizarre to criticize… What small guy is going to spend $250 billion getting Americans back to work?”

On Sunday, Rowe took to Facebook to take on his critics.

“Honestly Kevin, who gives a crap about your feelings toward Walmart?” Rowe asked one man who questioned Rowe’s decision to partner with Walmart, often a major target of those who like to demonize business.

“[D]ozens of American factories are going to reopen all over the country. Millions of dollars will pour straight into local economies, and hundreds of thousands of new manufacturing positions will need to be filled. That’s a massive undertaking packed with enormous challenges, and I want to help,” he added.

“Isn’t this the kind of initiative we can all get behind?” he concluded.

But there was more.

“I’ve looked up to you for the longest time,” said the same man, Kevin. “What happened to your support of the underdogs? Sad times Mike.”

Rowe didn’t hold back:

Be strong, Kevin. I’m flattered that you’ve looked up to me in the past. Hopefully, I’ll redeem myself in the future. But I’ve never supported the “underdog” simply because they’re not the favorite. Size might matter in some pursuits, (I’ve been assured it does,) but in business, there’s nothing inherently good about being small, and nothing inherently bad about being big. My foundation supports skilled labor, American manufacturing, entrepreneurial risk, a solid work ethic, and personal responsibility. We reward these qualities wherever we find them, whether they’re in David or Goliath.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
