WATCH: The incredible interview with the Berlin Candy Bomber

Glenn spoke with a living legend named Gail Halvorsen on TV last night, the original “Candy Bomber” from World War II. During the Berlin Airlift he began attaching little parachutes to chocolate candies and dropped them for German children to eat. He never could’ve imagined the everlasting impact this one small act would do.

While in Berlin for the Berlin Airlift, Halverson came across a group of children along the fence outside the airport. He was used to kids in Europe begging for candy when seeing American soldiers, but these didn't.

"It was against the rules to drop stuff out of airplanes, and I got along well because I followed by all the rules," Halverson said.

"When I did it, I hoped nobody found out about it. I met those kids at the fence, as you saw, and when they didn’t beg for any chocolate, and they didn’t have any for two years — kids around the world where I flew before would run you down in the street in this uniform, 1945 uniform, and grab your arm. After an hour when they didn’t beg and I turned to leave to catch my Jeep, I realize that, and I felt my pocket, and I said I’ve got to give them something. And I had the two sticks of gum," Halvorsen

He broke the gum in his pocket into four pieces and pushed it through the fence. Their faced lit up with joy.

"I said I’ve just got to give those kids more. And I didn’t want anybody to find out about it because I didn’t have permission," he explained.

"So Gail, when you’ve looked at this now for the last several decades, and you’re thinking about this, you’ve had to have reflected on this. What is it about the candy drop, what you and your fellow copilots and everybody else got involved eventually? What is it that you think…why has this lasted? Why has this become so legendary? What is it about this," Glenn asked.

"Well, I think it comes back to enemies becoming friends and how does that happen. Jesus Christ said greater love than this have no man than he lay down his life for a friend. Thirty-one of my Air Force buddies and 39 of my British comrades gave their lives, not for a friend, but for an enemy who became a friend. So the bottom line I think it is, it just exemplifies the durability of the truth that the only way to real happiness in life is not a bigger car than the neighbor or a bigger house but getting outside yourself and serving someone else. Serving others is the only solution to happiness," Halverson said.

"And the idea that…it was those kids, not me. Scrooge had been standing at the fence, and the kids had done the same thing. So the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow, and the metamorphosis from killing each other just a little while before to flying day and night is the thing that changed everything around."

"I came back, I lived in a barn, up in the attic of a barn. There wasn’t room in the inn at first. One of my buddies bombed Berlin during the war not long before, and here they were just getting back to the states, meeting the family so the kids didn’t say who’s that stranger coming through the door, and they asked they go back to Germany. And my buddy bombed them. He got shot up."

"One member was almost dead when he got him back to England, and I looked at him in the eyes, and I said, 'Friend, how do you feel leaving your family again and feeding the guys that tried to kill you?' And he took a moment, he looked at me, and he said, 'Hal, it’s a whole lot better to feed them than it is to kill them. I’m glad to be back.' That’s the healing balm on the wounds of war, the service."

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.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
