You might be surprised by who has been targeting Tea Party Senator Mike Lee

Glenn was in a bit of a mood this morning, making it a perfect time for Pat to bring up some news out of Utah that would turn his smoldering grumpiness into a full-on inferno. A local paper in Salt Lake City, Deseret News, decided to publish a thinly veiled and passive aggressive op-ed criticizing "strident partisans" and "ultra conservative special interest organizations" operating in Utah. Who were they really going after? Glenn explained on radio Monday.

"They are taking Mike Lee apart in Utah. And I'm sorry, I really don't understand how you can look at Mike Lee and say he's an extremist," Glenn said. "I don't know when it became radical, especially in places like Utah to stand for the Constitution of the United States, but if you don't stand with people like Mike Lee, who is decent, honorable, quiet, adjusted, willing to work with people -"

Pat and Glenn dissected the article, which was written as a point/counter-point between a Republican and Democrat centered on a recent study showing Utahans want Congress to work with President Obama.

"Both of them progressive," Glenn said.

The Republican, Frank Pignanelli, wrote:

Most Utahns are pleased that our congressional delegation occupies extremely powerful positions. But we are also a proud people … and hope our representatives do not upset this opportunity to solve some of the many problems with the federal government. As the Utah Policy poll demonstrates, we want solutions to immigration, national debt, Social Security and all the troubles plaguing the federal government. Sorry, guys — the pressure is on.

"Yes, we do. Yes, we do," Glenn said. "And progressives have not given us any solutions except pile -- by the way, the progressives have had control of the Congress pretty much without exception, since World War I. With the exception of the 1920s and Ronald Reagan.  Can you think of any other time?  Possibly, possibly JFK.  Other than that, it's been an open runway.  An open runway for progressive policies.  How much debt have we had?  How is that working out for us?"

Pignanelli continued:

Ultraconservative special-interest organizations — especially those from out-of-state — should read and heed this barometer of Utah emotions. We despise their ridiculous threats against our federal lawmakers to take positions and make statements contrary to how we conduct business. Further, stacks of analysis document how Utah conservatives are of a different flavor than right-wing purists in other states.

"Why don't they just send a message right to Matt Kibbe?  It's MattKibbe@freedomworks.org.  You don't have to make it so cryptic.  Just send him a letter," Glenn said. "They're talking about Freedom Works."

Glenn also interpreted "right-wing purists in other states" as representatives in Texas.

But Glenn didn't just stand up for Mike Lee from the attacks from the press. He also criticized his good friend Jon Huntsman, who recently called Lee an "embarrassment".

"If you think [Lee's] an extremist and you keep going to -- and, yes, I'll say it, you keep going to people like Jon Huntsman. You're in dire trouble because that stuff won't work. We've had that now for a hundred years. That doesn't work. You have to reattach yourself to the Constitution of the United States. That's not radical," Glenn said.

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?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
