Glenn explains the similarities between the fight against Common Core and the immigration battle

On Tuesday’s radio program, Glenn explained that we are “winning” the fight against Common Core because concerned parents and teachers of varying ideological backgrounds have come together to peacefully and eloquently express their dismay with the standards. With that in mind, Glenn wondered what we could learn from that success as it pertains to the current border crisis.

As Glenn and others have exposed, Common Core is nothing more than a business that is benefiting the likes of Bill Gates. Meanwhile, teachers are struggling to adapt to the ridiculous methods of solving and reasoning what used to be straightforward math problems. Parents are seeing firsthand the frustrations Common Core has caused while trying to help their children with homework. This has created a perfect storm of events that unites the left and right.

“[This is a] huge business… All these tests, they cost us money. It's anywhere from $15 to $45 per test per student every time they take it. That's an awful lot of money. Who is getting rich? Corporations. Bill Gates… we have him on tape saying there will be customers around the block,” Glenn explained. “Data mining alone is worth more than products now… Think of that. How much is this data worth on your family and on your children from the get-go? They'll know everybody there is about your child. They'll be able to market to your child from birth. So that's the right.”

“The left is coming out and saying, ‘Wait a minute, we were the ones that were supposed to agree with freedom. We were the ones that are supposed to love teachers, and teachers are being thrown under the bus here,’” he continued.

Over the last several months, TheBlaze has reported countless stories about parents who have stood up at school board meetings to express their concerns only to be silenced – even arrested.

“If [the parents] would have been angry, if they would have been vile, if they would have been shouting, no one would listen to them,” Glenn said. “But because these parents are in control and they're saying, ‘Look, I don't have to agree with everything, but this is wrong, and I just want some answers on this,’ when the State comes and starts cracking down, everybody is on their side…This is the secret. Now how can we do this on all fronts?”

Glenn believes it is vital that we strike a similar tone when it comes to the immigration debate. While it is true the scores of illegals crossing the border daily are overrunning towns and communities, it is time to “break the mold” and find the “right language” everyone can agree on. As Glenn explained earlier in the program, he believes it is time for the government to start focusing on the “border crisis” and the American people to worry about the “humanitarian crisis.” The only way that can happen is if we find a way to “shock the system”:

You have to shock the system at this point. You have to break the mold. Everybody thinks they know exactly who you are. They think you do. But they don't… We have a responsibility to our fellow human beings. And you have a responsibility of taking care of business. You have a responsibility in Washington of actually doing the right thing for the nation. We're doing the right thing here. Now it's your turn. We're doing it with charity for all malice toward none. We don't hate these children. We understand their plight. We want to preserve this nation so it can be a lifeboat for the rest of the world. We are great because we are good. Such an exceptional people, that even when it goes against our best interest… we will because we're good. We are good and that's what's made America great.

All of a sudden, the argument on the other side of [is] ‘Well, who will take care of those people?’ We will. ‘Well, somebody has got to do something.’ Yes, we will. Stop putting it in the hands of the government. It gives you the opportunity to say, ‘Yes, we will take care of these problems. We do care about these problems’…

You have an opportunity right now to change people's hearts that are your neighbors because you can agree on something, and that's the point of Common Core. Once you have one point of agreement, you can expand. But right now, it's us versus them. ‘You hate children, we don't.’ No, we don't hate children. We have compassion. We love people. We understand their plight… Let's first have the conversation of: We love these children…

I understand what you're doing with the buses and standing up. And good job for standing up and having the courage to stand up, but make sure that you are looking at the images that you are portraying. Don't do anything that looks violent or is, God forbid, violent. Make sure you're following the patterns of Martin Luther King because no one will disagree with you if you are peaceful, if you are loving, if you are kind, if you are gentle, if it is not about the immigrants, but it is about Washington. And you can't make the point about Washington unless people know you have a heart first.

"Speak from the heart first," Glenn concluded. "And then be strong on your principles and values of the Constitution and your own town."

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
