Starting the New Year Right: Glenn Honors Fallen Veteran

Glenn shared a photo of the bracelet he's been wearing since Christmas on Facebook this weekend. The bracelet once belonged to SGT Patrick Tainsh of the 5-15th Cavalry, who was mortally wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq on May 29th, 2012. SGT Tainsh was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his determination and heroism.

Glenn wanted to start the new year right by recognizing SGT Tainsh and others who have fought and died to protect our rights. The responses that poured in were inspiring.

Here is Glenn's original post:

I don't know if Patrick's mom is still a fan, but I met her years ago on the Christmas Sweater tour.

She asked me if I would wear her son's bracelet for a few days.

She told me his story.

I told her I would be honored to wear it. I wore it every day for a couple of years.

Patrick was an amazing patriot who turned his life around with the help of amazing parents. He was killed in action saving the lives of others. Any parent would be more than proud to call Patrick "son."

I just wanted Mrs. Tainsh to know that I still think of Patrick and I have been wearing his bracelet again since Christmas.

My kids are old enough now to ask, and remember who Patrick was and why I wear his name.

Let me start this new year out right. By thanking those who have fought and the families of those who died to protect my family and our right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

You are not forgotten.

Among the replies was a post from SGT Tainsh's commander Stacey Corn, who shared details of the heroic actions of Tainsh and others that fateful day.

I was SGT Tainsh's commander and he was my gunner. I was with him the night he died. What he did that night was heroic. There were many acts of heroism that night, A.C. Collette was the medic that exposed himself to enemy fire and moved under SGT Tainsh covering fire to render aid to PFC Ramirez who was mortally wounded. SGT Tainsh did not stop until he ran out of ammo even though he was mortally wounded. The very definition of a hero. This is the bracelet I wear every day. Thank you for remembering him and all that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Others who knew Tainsh added their own memories of the fallen warrior.

To complete the circle, Deborah Tainsh --- who gave Glenn the bracelet in the first place --- entered the conversation with her reply.

Glenn Beck I will always be a fan. Thank you for everything. My husband USMC Sgt Major retired David Tainsh passed away Dec 23 2014 from stage 4 lung and brain cancer attributed to agent orange. A highlight of his life was meeting you and having you wear Patrick's bracelet.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

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.
