Thank you Birmingham

In the news and online, it's not hard to find people speaking words that are divisive. People tend to avoid listening to voices that don't seem to fit with their perspective.

On radio Friday, Glenn expressed his appreciation to the people of Birmingham, who have demonstrated how to truly be people of unity.

Listen.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: Bishop Lowe is an amazing, amazing guy. Who studied the Koran.

Actually left Christianity when he was very young because -- this was back in the '60s or '70s. He was in college. And all of his Christian friends who were all white, he thought he was buddies. And he was going to date a woman, ask a woman to go out. She was white. And all of his Christian friends went away and said, no. No, we shouldn't mix. And he's like, aren't we the same on the inside?

Yeah, well, but no, Jesus -- Jesus doesn't want us to mix. So he left Christianity. And he started studying the Koran. And he was going down the -- he was going down the Elijah Muhammad road and started going, you know, really dark.

PAT: Wow. I didn't know that part about him.

GLENN: Yeah, he's very much like Hutch. He's very much like Hutch. You know, he was in the 16th Street Baptist Church when they tried to blow it up. He was in the next room. So he was safe. But he lost friends that way. I mean, he has walked the walk. And he is serious about unity. He is, you know, it doesn't matter what color you are. It doesn't matter what religion you are. He is serious about coming together because now is the time. He's amazing.

STU: And he's taking a chance too. You would think by -- you know, I'm sure he's had a lot of pushback.

GLENN: It was not popular to invite Glenn Beck to his black church.

STU: No. But when you have people and you find people who are willing to step out and do stuff like that, you really need to show them a lot of respect. And you need to say -- really point that out. Because we complain about this sort of thing all the time, that so many people are divisive. And they won't listen to voices that support the values that we talk about. I mean, they've done a great job here in Birmingham to go out of their way to do that. They've really opened up to people here. People you wouldn't necessarily think would be part of this type of a movement.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And, you know, the fact that that's happening is really encouraging.

GLENN: It's really encouraging. A lot of people -- in fact, I will tell you that the 16th Street Baptist Church, which is more of a progressive church, is right down where the -- where the -- the event starts tomorrow. The march starts. And, well, they've asked me not to speak in the church. You know, not to address. They've opened their doors to -- to all of us graciously. And are making sure everyone is comfortable and everything. That's really nice. Really nice. So we appreciate the hospitality of Birmingham. So appreciate the hospitality of Birmingham and all the people involved. If you'd like to get involved, you still can. Just find out about all of the events and how you can get tickets. Some of them -- most of them don't need tickets. Just join us. Just go to now.mercuryone.org.

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.
