D-Day vet went missing yesterday, and you'll never believe where he was found

Today, people around the world are remembering those who fought and died for freedom in World War 2. But one of the most inspiring stories of the day may be that of Bernard Jordan, an 89 year old British D-Day who walked out of his nursing home in Hove, England yesterday without telling anyone where he was going. After being reported missing by the staff and a search by local police, Jordan was found exactly where he needed to be today - on the beaches of Normandy, standing alongside his fellow veterans, commemorating the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.

Jordan, who allegedly was stopped by the staff of the nursing home from attending the event, had left the home Thursday morning wearing a grey rain coat and a jacket adorned with his military medals. It was only later that night, after police were called, that the nursing home found out from a fellow veteran that Jordan was fine and at a hotel in Ouistreham, France, about an hour outside of Normandy.

Police have spoken to Jordan, and his friends are going to make sure he gets back to Hove safe and sound. A police spokesman said, "We have spoken to the veteran who called the home today and are satisfied that the pensioner is fine and that his friends are going to ensure he gets back to Hove safely over the next couple of days after the D-Day celebrations finish."

Peter Curtis, the chief executive of the company the runs Jordan's nursing home, has denied reports Jordan was banned from attending. Curtis said, "Mr Jordan has full capacity, which means that he can come and go from the home as he pleases, which he does on most days."

Jordan served with the Royal Navy during Operation Overlord, the code name for the Battle of Normandy which led to the liberation of Western Europe from the fascist grip of the Axis Powers. 

"I'm not surprised to hear he's gone missing," said Brighton councillor Les Hamilton. "The memorial services meant a lot to him. He clearly didn't want to miss what might be his last one."

Jordan attended the 50th and 60th anniversary's of D-Day as well in Normandy.

Jordan's service to the community didn't end after the war. He also served as mayor of Hove, England, an experience of which he said, "I was able to take my chance, serve the people of my town and do a job I loved. I am very proud of what I was able to do. For anyone who is interested in becoming Mayor, you must be prepared to work hard."

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
