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.”

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.
