Surprising or no? George Will advocates for amnesty

Some people may find George Will’s latest comments on amnesty for illegal immigrant children shocking, others not so much. Stu claimed that Will has been on the amnesty bandwagon for some time while Glenn ripped the statement as ‘such a straw man’ argument. Glenn explains how the last step in the fall of the Roman Empire is when they opened up the gates and everyone flooded in.

“We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to America, you’re going to go to school and get a job and become Americans,’” George Will said on "Fox News Sunday". “We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county. The idea that we can’t assimilate these 8-year-old ‘criminals’ with their teddy bears is preposterous.”

"What a straw-man argument that is, but he's making the case for naturalization. You want to talk about naturalization, let's talk all day about naturalization," Glenn said. "Did anyone have a problem with Cubans coming in? Anyone really have a problem? If they built a car to float, I mean, I'm willing to bring them in, because they want it so desperately. Did we have a problem with the boat people coming in? Most people did not. If you are trying to get here because you want freedom and you want a part of the American dream - great."

Glenn and Pat explained that the issue is really about naturalization versus assimilation, where people come into the country legally to be Americans, not sneak across the border in the middle of the night with no interest in becoming a part of the fabric of American society.

"It is naturalization. Immigration and naturalization," Glenn said. "Calling for people what want to be Americans to come here and make us better.  Let us melt into one another."

"And you have to do it legally. That is an important part of the equation." Pat said. " The other thing, when he's saying that we can assimilate these kids, what does that say to the other kids and their adults?  We are assimilating not just kids with teddy bears, as he described. We're assimilating with criminals, MS-13 members and sometimes, in some cases, terrorists from Syria.  So we are assimilating all these, sometimes sending them back and they're signaling back to Mexico, Central and South America and send us everybody else."

While Stu did not agree with Will's argument, he appreciated that he was making it openly and honestly.

"I appreciate the fact he's making the argument and not hiding behind, well, 'we will be tough on the border;, but -- he's saying look, just let them all in. He's making the argument -- I like that he's making it plainly," Stu explained.

Stu argued that the argument of spreading the immigrant children out among all the different counties in America  is a very progressive idea. When Obamacare was presented to the American people, the logic behind the policy was always about everyone paying just a little bit more to cover the costs.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
