Media focuses on all the wrong parts of the DNC debate

One of the biggest headlines that came out following Saturday's DNC presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire was that Hillary Clinton was late getting back to the debate stage during a bathroom break.

Why are we even talking about this?

Pitch-hitting for Glenn on radio Monday, Buck Sexton shared his feelings on the matter.

"Places covered this as if this is something that needed to be covered because the debate was so boring and useless," Buck said. "That's right. You have major news outlets that are covering a potty break."

BUCK: One of the biggest headlines you see is that Hillary was late back to the debate stage. Then we find out it's because, you know, as one does during a debate, she had to have a bathroom break. And you could say, Buck, why are we talking about this? And that's a totally fair question. We're talking about it because the Boston Globe and many other places covered this as if this is something that needed to be covered because the debate was so boring and useless. That's right. You have major news outlets that are covering a potty break. What happened with this potty break? Why did the potty break go so long? Does anybody know how far away the potty was from the stage?

Ain't no potty like a Hillary debate potty because the Hillary debate potty is far away.

This is nonsense. And I'm reading this from the Boston Globe. They're talking about this. This is something we needed to know more about. We needed more coverage. That's how desperate they are for content though. This is the point. There's nothing else. The most exciting parts of this debate -- I already played for you the audio of Bernie saying, "Hillary, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do it. You know, it was a staffer." And then also that she was late back to the stage because she went to the restroom. I mean, you can't make this stuff up.

It's like they did a count of how many times a candidate would cough or something because it's not supposed to be about substance. And everybody knows it. This gives Bernie a platform. All Hillary has to do is show up. Just sit there and be Hillary. And everyone goes, oh, she is so poised -- I also love the sort of after action reports you get: Oh, she's so poised. It's wonderful.

Then there's Martin O'Malley, standing there just being Martin. Just not really -- we're not sure why he's there. He's not sure why he's there. Does it matter? Nope, doesn't matter.

Hillary is going in with a huge lead. Hillary is the nominee. We know that much. And the media is already going to have to try to find ways to make this more interesting, I would think. Because even the scant coverage -- you'll notice not a lot of coverage of her. You'll notice the media wants to go wall-to-wall Trump all the time. Whether you're a Trump supporter or not, I'm just telling you, Democrat media, center left media, left left media, all Trump, all day, all the time. Part of that is ratings driven. But I think we should all be clear that only part of that is ratings driven.

They believe, those who will also stand behind Hillary and do whatever they can to push her presidency, that the more coverage of Trump in the long-term, the less likely that there will be a Republican sitting in the White House after the 2016 election.

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?
