Donald Trump renews pledge to GOP

In last night's debate, Donald Trump was asked if he would reassert his promise not run as a third party candidate. His answer was surprisingly deferential.

"I've gained great respect for the Republican leadership," said Trump. "I've never done this process before. I've never been a politician. I mean, for the last six months, I've been a politician. But I will tell you, I am totally committed to the Republican Party. I feel very honored to be the frontrunner."

During The Glenn Beck Program Wednesday, Glenn and co-host Pat wondered if perhaps comments made this week by Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh --- who lambasted Trump for attacking Senator Ted Cruz and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia --- made an impact.

"I think something affected him this week," mused Pat.

Agreeing, Glenn offered his take: "I think it was the loss of Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh."

GLENN: So let's start with the two promises that were made last night. One was Donald Trump. He was asked, "Will you again reassert that you will not run as a third party?"

VOICE: Are you ready to reassure Republicans tonight that you will run as a Republican and abide by the decision of the Republicans?

DONALD: I really am. I'll be honest. I really am. I mean, people have been putting me to the test -- I really am. Can I just finish?

VOICE: Oh, please.

DONALD: I've gained great respect for the Republican leadership. I've gained great respect for many -- and I'm going to even say all. I mean, in different forms for the people on the dais. In different forms. In different forms.

But I have great respect for the people I've met through this process. I've never done this process before. I've never been a politician. I mean, for the last six months, I've been a politician. But I will tell you, I am totally committed to the Republican Party. I feel very honored to be the frontrunner.

(applauding)

And I --

PAT: I think something affected him this week.

GLENN: I think so too. I think it was the loss of Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh.

PAT: And Rush. Yeah.

GLENN: I think that's what happened to him. Because he was very, very differential.

PAT: I think so too.

GLENN: I only had a problem with him saying, you know, I have a lot of respect for -- I've gained a lot of respect for the Republican Party and the establishment -- you know, not the establishment. How did he say it exactly? Maybe he did say establishment. But, you know, the establishment of the Republican -- the system of the Republican Party. That's not what I would really want you to have respect for.

But he has grown in respect for that. And kind of the left-handed compliment to everybody on the dais was, you know, typical Donald Trump. But did you believe him?

PAT: I believed that he means it right now. But could that change? Absolutely.

STU: Well, it's kind of the only standard with Trump. Right?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Do you believe he thinks it right now? Because obviously next week he could have the opposite opinion and no one is going to care.

PAT: Yes, right.

STU: I mean, he signed the pledge and then he backed off on that, and now he's back on it. I mean, who know what he'll feel next week? But I think he actually meant it in that moment, which is really the only standard you have with Donald Trump. Does he really mean it in that moment, or is he lying in that moment?

GLENN: Well, I thought he meant it in the moment.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
