Jake Tapper Shocked at Glenn's Truthful Tweet

The Context

One of Glenn's tweets during last night's GOP debate raised a few eyebrows, including CNN's Jake Tapper. Glenn's honest assessment of Rubio's performance --- 'Rubio is killing it' --- threw Tapper for a loop, prompting him to tweet 'Interesting; Beck is a major Cruz supporter.' In turn Glenn tweeted back, 'Not "interesting Jake, just honest."'

The sequence of tweets went like this:

Why Is Telling the Truth Shocking?

Apparently there is so much dishonesty in the media, it's actually a story if someone tells the truth. Not only did Jake Tapper comment on Glenn's tweet, but The Hill and Politico ran stories as well.

"He had a great night," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program. "And how come I can't say that?"

Glenn went on to share his perspective on both Rubio's and Cruz's debate performances.

“I personally put them as a tie for first,” Glenn said. “One appealed to your heart. One appealed to your head. Cruz was much better on substance. Rubio was much better on zingers. It felt good to watch Marco Rubio. But it was good --- I mean, it was real substantive. And that's not taking anything away from Marco Rubio because he had some good substantive stuff. But he was better at zingers. Cruz was better at substance.”

Cruz Welcomes Rubio Joining the Fight

Cruz also answered honestly to Jake Tapper's post-debate question about Glenn's tweet.

“Listen, I actually agree Marco did a good job tonight,” Cruz responded. “He did something tonight that he's never done, which he actually for the first time took on Donald Trump. And I'm glad he did. Listen, Marco is not my enemy. Marco and I are friends. Marco and I would both make a much better candidate and a much better president than would Donald.”

Cruz's honest answer wasn't lost on co-host Stu Burguiere.

“It doesn't benefit him to say that Marco Rubio would be a competent president. But he said that he would be a much better president than Donald Trump because he's being freaking honest. The same thing you want out of a talk show host, you should at least require that much out of your president,” Stu said. 

Common Sense Bottom Line

The real story here is the media finds honesty shocking and worthy of coverage.

“The media just doesn't get it. Just doesn't get it. I tweeted back to Jake Tapper immediately. It's not interesting. It's just honest. That's it.” Glenn said.

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?"
