Glenn: "I can't believe what I'm looking at"

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 1.07.14 PM

All this weekend at the Mercury Studios in Dallas, Texas the Miracles and Massacres Museum and the lines are already out the door. Glenn found himself routinely saying ‘I can’t believe I’m looking at that’ as he took the tour, passing by amazing item after amazing item. Then there’s the ridiculous 4D experience - Glenn explained on radio today.

"The staff has been working last night at 2:00 a.m. We finished the last piece of the museum. And I can't even say that. I finished my last part of the museum and then everybody else was working all the way through the night, then went upstairs to the American Dream Labs to where the 4-D experience was finished," Glenn said.

"We had to reshoot a bunch of stuff in the middle of the night last night because I didn't like it. I'm just -- I'm a little choked up because I just walked out of the studio or station 33 where we have put this 4-D experience together. It is phenomenal. It is absolutely phenomenal."

Glenn was amazed at the way his team at the American Dream Labs had taken his idea for the 4D D-Day Experience and turned it into a reality.

"It's really amazing. And now what they've done is they've put all these screens that you can actually see through. You don't even know there's a screen there. And you can see through them. So there's multiple layers of screens and projection of war and it's phenomenal. And it tells the story of D-Day and it's remarkable."

Last night, Glenn changed a lot of the museum to make it more accessible to children who were coming to the studios and to build it that way from the start the next time the museum is open. The move was inspired by Walt Disney, who designed his parks with kids in mind.

"The one thing I thought about this morning at 3:00 in the morning is I should have been on my knees not in prayer but on my knees to see it from a child's perspective," Glenn explained. "[Walt Disney] would get down on his knees the whole time and he would look at things [from a child's viewpoint]. That's how he got the perspective of the buildings right. That's all forced perspective. The buildings look bigger than they are and they did it through stage techniques."

"But when [Walt Disney] was designing his park, he was down on his knees the whole time. What does this look like as an 8-year-old child? And that's the way we need to design this museum. That's the way this whole thing needs to be done. And right now, we have spent two weeks just putting things in just so you can see them, but it all needs to be done in a way. We've got to be able to tell history. The only way we're going to save our country is to be able to sell the story, tell the story of who we are and why we're here."

He also explained that he plans to find new ways to bring these experiences to people where they live in a way that doesn't cost them anything.

"We just have to give these things because you need to see it. You just need to see it. And we need to bring it to you," Glenn explained. "You need to be recharged. You need to have somebody to fill your tank without wanting something in return. And it is my greatest desire to be able to given things to you that I know we can do, that will hold you up without wanting or asking for anything in return. To serve one another."

In the end, Glenn said he wants to do these things because of the special relationship that exists between himself and the audience.

"You don't know how much you bolster me. We have this great strange friendship. You don't know who I am. I don't know who you are. But you -- you think you know who I am but you listen and you're probably pretty close," Glenn said. " I feel you. It's the weirdest thing. And I think it's the reason why we're successful, is because I can feel you. It's weird. And when I get a chance to meet you, it means the world to me. It just means the world to me."

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?
