Liberty:

This is a picture of my grandson Brady, in his front yard in Houston TX.  This was his first Memorial Day.  My daughter and SIL made the pic, and I thought it was a great photo with many possible implications...past, present and future...ripe for several significant captions. Feel free to post in the Fan Corner.

Heroes:

Like many young men of his day, may Dad, James D. (Slim) Landrum, was eager to serve in the armed forces for his country. His three brothers were in different branches of the military so he chose the Navy. He wanted to be on a submarine and, being 6’4”, he had to “shorten” his height to get in. He was an electrician on the USS Grenadier and on his 20th birthday was captured by the Japanese. His sub had been damaged and the crew had to abandon ship and scuttle the sub. My dad was in prison camp for about 2 ½ years under which he endured much torture. While there, several of the prisoners made an American flag out of bed sheets that one of them had sewn and used colored pencils for the stars and stripes. This was at a great risk of life if found out by the Japanese, therefore, this act of bravery to this day shows me the love he had for his country. Upon liberation from Omori prison camp my father decided that the stars and stripes were going to be prominent over everything else. He took a firemen’s pike to use as a flag pole and made his way to the front of everyone at the edge of the water to make sure “Ol’ Glory” was seen by all. He carried that love for the flag until the day he died in 1980 and did not see that flag again as they had decided to give it to the man who had sewn it. Many years later, my oldest brother, Jerry, located that flag after much research and my family has been blessed to see it on display at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond, VA where my dad and all of us grew up. To this day I still miss my dad but I believe he would be saddened by the condition of this country today and the lack of respect given to our armed forces and the flag that has represented one of the greatest nations (under God) that this world has experienced. My dad is indeed my hero.

God Bless,

Freedom:

Dear Mr. Beck and Blaze staff,

I saw your email message for Memorial Day and wanted to send you this link of my 6 year old daughter singing the National Anthem at a Saint Paul Saints baseball game last night (Sunday, May 25). If you have any time to watch it I was struck by a few things.

We loved that a serviceman was with her on the field as she sang - not only did she sing for him but for all of our patriots both past and present.  I explained to Montana before singing that when she sings the National Anthem, she is telling a story.  A story about America, and it's God given freedoms that many have fought to preserve.

She/we were unaware that as she sung the words "the bombs bursting in air", the bombs would literally go off. This was completely unexpected but a very cool touch!

Just wanted to share it.  Happy Memorial Day!

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
