Two vets are marching 300 miles to Washington D.C. to deliver a strong message to the President

Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been locked up in a Mexican prison for 171 days. The 25-year-old decorated war veteran was arrested for weapons possession on March 31 at the San Ysidro checkpoint in California. A Florida native, Tahmooressi was in the process of relocating to San Diego for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder when he was apprehended. He faces a sentence of six to 21 years in a Mexican prison for carrying his registered AR-15 rifle, .45-caliber pistol, and 12-gauge pump shotgun in his car across the border.

Tahmooressi’s plight has received attention from the likes of Montel Williams, Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA), and others. A WhiteHouse.gov petition requesting the White House demand Tahmooressi’s release garnered more than 100,000 signatures, but the Obama Administration has refused to take action. Frustrated with the status quo, two Marine Corp veterans are now trekking 300 miles on foot to Washington, D.C. to personally deliver President Obama a message.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Marine Corps veteran Terry Sharpe is 63 years old and began walking the 287 miles from his home in Summerfield, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C., two weeks ago to raise awareness about Tahmooressi, who has been in a Mexican prison since March.

[…]

On the third day of his walk, he crossed through Danville, Virginia, and was stopped by a man named Allen Brown who wanted to know what he was doing.

Brown happened to be a Marine Corps veteran as well. By coincidence, they both were part of the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines during the Vietnam War, deployed in the same location. Sharpe was in Kilo company, and Brown was in Lima company. The men both turn 64 at the end of the year.

Sharpe told the Free Beacon he knows this situation could be “solved with a phone call.”

“I got aggravated because nothing is happening and I said I’m going to walk up to Washington, D.C., and tell President Obama to make the phone call,” he said. “All he has to do is call the president of Mexico and tell him to let the boy go.”

On radio this morning, Glenn praised the veterans for their action and offered Obama and his press secretary a bit of advice on how to handle the situation.

“Imagine you're the PR person of the president,” Glenn said. “You go in and say, ‘Mr. President there are two elderly men… Let's bring them in. Talk to them in the Oval Office, and we will take one picture. No recording of anything. Just hear them out… and then you walk them to the front door, shake their hands, and they're off on their way.’”

Given the current controversy surrounding the VA and American military intervention abroad, Glenn believes the simple act of Obama meeting with these men could make a “huge” impact.

“Why doesn't he do that? It's like he doesn't even care,” Glenn said. “All of the divisions of the VA and everything else – you could use that and say, ‘Look, I talked to them about Tahmooressi, and I also asked them about the healthcare of the VA’… It would be huge.”

“You could absolutely turn that to your advantage,” Pat agreed. “You’ve just done their work for them.”

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.
