Must Watch: Tearful Montel Williams has a plan to "pay our debt" to forgotten veterans

Earlier this week, 22-year veteran and television personality Montel Williams made headlines for an emotional speech he gave about the ongoing VA scandal during a Memorial Day picnic in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. On Wednesday's radio program, Glenn praised Williams' willingness to speak so frankly about the issue and said he is "exactly right."

Watch Williams' Memorial Day speech below:

“If you saw me in the speech – I don’t think people understand why I feel this way,” Williams told Glenn while holding back tears. “I visit our guys at Walter Reed, Bethesda. I cook for our guys around the country. I cook for their family members, for the people who serve them.”

“I’m walking the walk my friend. And right now I am so offended and disgusted by what we are doing as a nation to the guys who let us live this democracy we have.”

TheBlaze.com was among the first and only media outlets to post Williams' speech, and he subsequently penned an op-ed for the the site detailing the extent of the problem and offering a few solutions. He has come under serious fire from many on the left for associating with Glenn and TheBlaze.

While Glenn and Williams certainly do not align on much politically, the treatment of our veterans is a topic in which they see eye-to-eye. Glenn invited Williams to join him on Thursday's Glenn Beck Program, and Williams passionately explained that he is simply looking for an outlet from which he can draw attention to the deplorable conditions our servicemen and women are arriving home to. Furthermore, he offered a substantiate, straight forward solutions that can - at the very least - begin to solve the problem and allow the American people to repay their debt to our veterans.

In the interview, an emotional Williams said that President Obama could order a surge over the next 90 days simply by issuing an order as Commander-in-Chief. If the different service branches brough soldiers in the reserves back into service on temporary active duty, they could man military hospitals and clear out the backlog in 90 days.

"Why do we need to do it with military personnel? Hear me, please understand, our soldiers are in pain and right now you can’t send a person who doesn’t understand how to speak the speak to a soldier, to understand and get him to open up unless it’s another soldier. So why don’t we employ the ones who are out of work right now?," Williams said.

“Direct each branch of the service to do this today – 90 days from now we’ll have a backlog cleared up and we’ll understand what the baseline is for what we now have to commit to, to pay for and to take care of our obligation and our debt to our soldiers.”

Williams, clearly getting choked up, said it was on the American people to fix this issue.

“It’s not the President, it’s not Congress, it’s not the Senate. It’s We The People owe this debt. You had a barbecue on Sunday? You did so on the backs of young people who can’t be treated. How dare you. Pay your debt.”

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
