Zenobia Dobson raised a hero

Zenobia Dobson—this is the mother we should be talking about instead of “affluenza” mom.

Zenobia Dobson buried her 15-year-old son with the kind of dignity we all pray for in a time of devastating tragedy.

The week before Christmas Eve, her son Zaevion Dobson, a football player and mentor at Fulton High School in Knoxville, Tennessee, jumped on top of three girls to shield them from a spray of bullets shot by gang members. The girls survived; Zaevion did not.

Ms. Dobson spoke about his actions and finding optimism despite "her baby's" death.

"It was an honor for my son to protect another individual," Dobson told CBS News.

That's the kind of mother Zaevion Dobson was privileged to have—a mother who instilled in her son a level of character that would cause him to unthinkingly shield innocents from danger, giving his own life in the process.

While “affluenza” mom was raising a spoiled, irresponsible killer, Zenobia Dobson was raising a hero.

Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said this about Zaevion’s sacrifice: "I have a military background, that's the actions of heroes."

The teen's coach, Rob Black, said the sophomore was well liked by teachers and students at Fulton.

"This is a fine, fine young man who is a success story," he said. "And I want to try to continue to celebrate the life that he had here and the impact that he made on his peers," Black said.

A GoFundMe account set up to cover funeral expenses surpassed its goal of $60,000. An update on the page states that all remaining donations will be used to create a memorial in Zaevion’s honor.

Thank you, Ms. Dobson, for raising a young man with valiant character.

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.
