Do Glenn Beck and Van Jones actually agree on something?

The morning after the Charleston church shooting, Glenn went on air and said that he believed that something good would come out of the horrific tragedy. Many in the media have focused on racism and gun control in the wake of the shooting to advance a progressive agenda, but there’s been another voice echoing Glenn’s positive sentiment: Van Jones. Could this end up being the strangest of strange bedfellows, or does Van have a hidden agenda?

GLENN: So VGLENN: So Van Jones, who I'm definitely not a fan of, has said something quite interesting about Charleston. Listen to this.

VAN: Something is happening here in Charleston. I'm proud that we're showing it. I'm also proud of you for calling it what it is when you say that it's racist terrorism. We can't defeat demons that we can't face.

You know, James Baldwin said, not everything that can be faced can be overcome, but nothing can be overcome until it is at least faced.

Here they're facing the demons, and they're coming together because they're facing the demons. I think there's a balm in Charleston for America, and I don't have words for it. I'm not usually at a loss for words. I do not have words for what I say.

PAT: That's pretty interesting that because -- you've been saying that from the very beginning. From day one, which was, you know, Thursday. Thursday morning you said something was happening and something could would come out of this really awful tragedy. Right?

GLENN: Yeah. While everyone was still reeling from it, I had the feeling that you were going to see an Amish moment coming from this community.

PAT: And we have.

GLENN: Something great -- and we have. Last night, yesterday, on the bridge was absolutely amazing.

PAT: Yeah, 15,000 people.

GLENN: Show up. And it's a unity line across the bridge, led by the victims' families. I mean, there is something special about this church. There is something special about this community.

PAT: But this is a revolutionary communist who is saying this at an interesting time. MSNBC is trying to stoke the flames of racial division. Then you have Van Jones saying exactly what you said.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Which is exactly what you said would happen when Van Jones was doing his revolutionary -- communist revolutionary propaganda before he said, drop the radical pose.

GLENN: I said about Van Jones. This was years ago. I said about Van Jones. Be careful. This guy is extraordinarily dangerous and he is smart.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And he is going to -- he is going to go all lovey-dovey on you. And he is going to image himself as a Martin Luther King or whatever.

PAT: Right. Right. He has a hard time sticking to it, though. Because he was doing the lovey-dovey stuff for you for a while, remember, calling you his brother, saying he loved you, all that kind of stuff. Then he kind of drifted back to his radical nonsense and rhetoric. And now he seems to be once again parodying what you've been saying about the Charleston situation.

GLENN: He's a dangerous guy. Very, very dangerous guy.

PAT: But like you said, smart. He's really smart.

GLENN: No, no. He took the summer after he left the White House, and he spent three months studying old tapes of Ronald Reagan, trying to learn how to speak like Ronald Reagan. Trying to learn the ins and outs of Ronald Reagan. Trying to be able to parrot. The guy is an actor. He can parrot just about anybody. So he's just a really dangerous guy.

Now, I hope that maybe he's dropped the --

PAT: Maybe.

GLENN: -- maybe he's dropped the radical ends as well as the radical means. I don't know. I don't know Van Jones. I don't want to know Van Jones. I don't trust him. Van Jones, who I'm definitely not a fan of, has said something quite interesting about Charleston. Listen to this.

VAN: Something is happening here in Charleston. I'm proud that we're showing it. I'm also proud of you for calling it what it is when you say that it's racist terrorism. We can't defeat demons that we can't face.

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?
