Ted Cruz to join Glenn and Mercury One at the border this Saturday

The Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund has raised over $2 million over the last several weeks, and Glenn is going to the border town of McAllen, Texas on Saturday to begin distributing aid to local churches and charities. On radio this morning, Glenn announced Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) will be joining him and several other politicians and faith leaders in McAllen. Glenn also expressed his frustration with the media coverage of the immigration crisis.

“Why is nobody covering this,” Glenn asked. “This came out yesterday. This is a big deal. Why is no one coming that Ted Cruz is going down to the border for a relief program?”

As Stu pointed out, there is a subset of conservatives that do not agree with the position Glenn has taken on the border because they see it as ‘soft.’ With conservative stalwarts like Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), and Cruz lending their support to the Mercury One relief effort, however, the criticism becomes more difficult to justify.

“From the conservative side of things, it's really hard to call you the ‘traitor to the conservative cause’ on the border when you're being joined by Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert,” Stu said. “There's been very small subset of conservatives that have come out to try to attack you and say how weak you are on the border… The bottom line is: It's total BS. And it makes it so much more laughable when people like freaking Ted Cruz are coming down to join us.”

Glenn admitted he had not thought of the conservative angle. Instead, he believes networks like CNN don’t want the narrative to be anything other than ‘Republicans are evil people who are fighting with one another.’ Covering the Mercury One relief efforts and the $2 million Glenn’s audience has raised does not fit the narrative.

“The number $2 million was released and… nobody has reported that. They reported that I was first going down because… there was a ‘conflict.’ ‘Look, conservatives are fighting,’” Glenn explained. “But as soon as that number became overwhelming, all of the coverage stopped. Have you noticed that? Then Ted Cruz is going down to provide relief? No coverage. That's not news.”

Ultimately, the only way the immigration crisis in general will receive adequate coverage is if readers from TheBlaze and other conservative news outlets start sharing these reports with their friends and family.

“When I said to you when I was at Fox, ‘it's important that you let people know that we surround them,’ that ‘you're not alone,’ ‘you're doing that.’ Even if you just sent a check in for $5, I want you to know you're doing that,” Glenn concluded. “This is about mercy, not just for the people coming across the border. This is about mercy to our own Americans – the farmers, the ranchers, the sheriffs’ department that don't sleep anymore, the border patrol… I want you to know, you are changing hearts. The world may never see or make little note of what we do. But in the place that records our true citizenship, it is remembered and noted.”

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

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?
