Glenn: Darkness tried (and failed) to destroy my family

Glenn shared the below message on his Facebook page this past Sunday.

Father's Day. I have much churning inside of today.

My father and I were strangers for most of my life, but in the late 90's we really tried. We were best friends for about five years.

Then after a family incident I found out that he was not the man I thought he was. In fact he was the opposite.

7 years ago or so, I was crushed. My entire world turned upside down and inside out. Everything I thought I could trust and was real was gone.

I guess I knew it was coming in some way.

I had heard the whispers of darkness.

"I will destroy your family."

We have had a very tough 10 years.

Darkness tried, ripping my children from the path and from me, it tried turning my little ones, it tried accusing me of being a poor father and it tried to fill me with despair that we wouldn't make it.

The only thing that succeeded was ripping my father out of our arms.

But the family stood. We held on to each other and the truth.

My sisters and brother are closer to each other and me than ever before.

But, I lost my father and all that he taught was almost destroyed in the process.

Someday, maybe this week, maybe next year, I will share what I learned because the darkness is whispering its lies to all of us.

I praise God that I am not lost! The Lord loves us and guides us. God IS my Father, the author of all that I am. And so to him,

"I thank you Father in Heaven for all of the good and the bad. The wisdom to know the difference between the two and the strength to choose you and your path.

I thank you, Father for allowing me to be born at this time, for your redeeming power that causes me to stand when I see.

I thank you for my children, amazing wife , her parents and yes, my parents. I thank you for an earthly father who tried. I ask you to forgive him for his faults as I ask you to forgive me for being so blind to his pain and struggles for so long.

The only gift I can give to you, Father, is a promise that I will try to be better, that I will search for your words in your text and in the text of my life.

The training wheels are off but I am still a bit wobbly. I will fail and fall at times but I know that you will always be running just behind me saying, "I've got you, I've got you!"

"Thank you for my life".

Happy Father's Day.

That goes to George too.

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.
