What did President Bush say in 2007 that has even more significance today?

During a 2007 press conference, then-President George W. Bush warned the United States would be forced into another conflict in Iraq if troops were withdrawn too soon. As the American people prepare to hear from President Obama about his strategy to deal with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Glenn played Bush’s words on radio this morning and explained why he does not believe Obama’s instincts on Islamic extremism are reliable.

“To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready… would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda,” Bush said in 2007. “It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.”

“It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous,” he concluded.

As Pat and Stu explained, while they are certainly not Bush’s biggest fans, they never doubted his intentions when it came to keeping the American military and the American people safe.

“George W. Bush is a guy who obviously had a lot of flaws, but I do not doubt that he loves our troops more than anything,” Stu said. “And I do not doubt that he really believes Islamic extremism is a serious problem. And even he wasn't even close to [handling] this right.”

While Glenn doubts Obama will really put forth any real policy or strategy in his speech tonight, Stu is quite fearful of what military intervention would look like under this President’s leadership.

“I don't trust him with this sort of power,” Stu said frankly. “Legitimate military intervention, a crushing blow to ISIS, I do not trust this president with the lives of our most important resource: Our troops. I don't trust him with that. I don't trust him executing that power well.”

“This president – and I'm not judging him and I'm not saying he's on the side of the Muslim terrorists or anything else – I'm saying I don't believe his instincts on Islamic extremism and my instincts are in line,” Glenn concluded. “I just don't believe it.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

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.
