Week of Violence: What Do We Tell Our Kids?

It was a day of reflection and uncertainty for many following a week of violence in the United States. For parents, the events presented a particular challenge: How to explain the hatred and violence to our children.

"So last night, I am watching television with my son, and it's a split screen of New York and Dallas. And we see New York, and we're paying attention to New York and watching what's happening, and expecting something to happen in New York, and all of a sudden the camera starts running down the street and people start to scatter. And you realize something has happened," Glenn said.

He went on to explain how his son reacted to seeing police officers down and coming to the realization it was happening near his hometown in Dallas.

"I felt him kind of just lean back towards me, and I grabbed him and I hugged him. I didn't know what to say. And I said, 'You're going to be safe. Everything's going to be fine. But, son, this is what we've been talking about. Your life is going to be different than mine. This is why we have to be good, decent people, and rely on God.'"

That was Glenn's experience with his son. When his executive assistant Michelle said the next day, "My world is upside down," Glenn gained a different perspective.

"She had the same experience with her boys. And she said, 'What do I say to them?' and I realized, 'Oh, my gosh. I've only thought of it from my point of view.' Michelle is black. I didn't even consider that her sons are watching these marchers saying, 'black lives matter,' and that has to be conflicting there," Glenn said.

A discussion ensued between Glenn, Michelle and head of content Ellen Wheeler, all of whom are parents facing the same dilemma.

"If you don't root yourself in something that is eternal, if you don't grab onto something that, you know, doesn't have its foundation in sand, you don't make it. You don't make it. Because this is just the beginning of this," Glenn said.

The platitudes delivered to those born in the 50s and 60s no longer work because the future will be a vastly different experience.

"I can't give you the same guarantees that our parents gave us --- go to college, you know, get a job, do these things, and life will turn out okay," Ellen said.

Michelle agreed.

"You can't hide it. You can't hide it from them. You can't pretend that the world is so great, and you have to be honest," she said.

"I'm convinced of that. You have to tell them the truth because we're not solving this. They are. They were born for this time, for this purpose," Glenn added.

Principles will be the key to surviving the coming storm.

"The only thing you have is an iron rod of principles to hold onto. Grab hold of the iron rod. Because we are all going to need it, and we're all going to need each other," Glenn said.

CEO says TWO-THIRDS of ammunition deliveries have gone MISSING with UPS

Patrick Collins, CEO of TheGunFood.com, says he's "lost" thousands of dollars worth of ammunition. Why? Because customers’ orders don’t always seem to make it to their doors — especially when delivering with UPS. In fact, he says out of 18,000 rounds of ammunition shipped through UPS, only a third were actually delivered. That's a lot of ammo to go missing. So, where is it?

Collins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail the issue, the lengths his company has gone to work with the delivery service, and the lack of detailed response or explanation from UPS.

Collins said UPS blames the packaging even though his company has always "met and exceeded" all available packaging protocols.

"I have pictures of how the packages are packed (and) within the packages," he explained. "And I have all of that information. In fact, we changed our protocol here at TheGunFood.com to have our drivers, when they drop off the packages at the centers, they have to actually take a picture of it on the conveyor belt when UPS takes possession of our packages."

Collins also told Glenn his company isn't the only one to have ammunition go missing during delivery. "I know quite a few other folks, that have had well over $300,000 of ammunition gone missing. And it's really changed the way we have to do our business," he said.

"The Glenn Beck Program" reached out to UPS to ask why ammunition and gun sellers might be having these issues, but the shipping company didn't exactly answer the question.

"Dear Glenn Beck Program ... Regarding your question about shipping ammunition, as a common carrier, UPS transports ammunition that constitutes cartridges and small arms as defined in federal regulations. UPS has safety protocols to help ensure the safe transport of ammunition in our network. We work with our customers to address their concerns including those with packaging. You can find out more about how to ship your ammunition on UPS.com," Glenn read.

"To [UPS], it's just a write-off. However, it's becoming a very expensive write-off. I would like to thank you for bringing a lot of attention to this because it really is a big deal," Collins said to Glenn. "It impacts people on multiple levels, more than your average citizen would think. Imagine if the police department doesn't receive the ammunition that they need to serve their civic duties."

"Well, imagine if you got sloppy with ammunition and you were just kind of losing some from time to time. What would they accuse you of?" Glenn replied. "There's no excuse. It's either theft from their own employees or it is part of a hidden policy that is disrupting the flow of ammunition ... and their stonewalling here bothers me, because there should be an answer. What happened to it?"

For the first time in its 67-year history, Disneyland omitted Walt Disney's iconic opening day speech from its anniversary celebration, leaving fans to wonder how the company could have gone so "woke" that they would even erase Walt Disney from Disneyland.

But Glenn Beck thinks the reason is actually easy to spot if you listen carefully to what Walt Disney was really saying back in 1955:

To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world. Thank you.

"Do you hear what they deleted? And can you understand why they deleted it? To all those who enter here, greetings. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, and the hard facts, that created America. To send them fourth as a source of courage and inspiration throughout the world [...] They're not only cutting Walt, the founder, out of Disney, but they're also cutting America out," said Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Program" Tuesday.

"The America that we all grew up in, the America that we thought we knew, is gone. But it's only on hold. And it's on hold, because it is in each of us — those of us who lived it, who know its truth, who know its promise, who have received its inspiration — it should now give us courage to continue to stand up, because we know what it was. Our kids don't. But I want you to know that it has only been put in a closet for a while, and it is our job to open that door and take it back out of the closet. It's only on hiatus if we choose, otherwise it is gone," he warned.

Glenn said he believes Walt Disney created Disneyland to be the exact opposite of what Disney now is. The original mission statement was about who we are as Americans, and who we can still be. But we must recognize that times have changed. We're not living in the same country anymore, and we're not playing by the same rules.

We are surrounded by chaos. When children are assaulting police officers, something is very much broken in society. This chaos is spillover from the BLM riots in 2020 that were allowed to run rampant. The legacy of those riots is skyrocketing violence, rampant crime, and an insane George Soros-led crusade against enforcing laws.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck says another aspect of America’s chaos is driven by the active campaign to destroy the traditional family and Judeo-Christian morality. This campaign is most obvious in the gender and sexuality confusion raging across America. It’s a campaign fully endorsed and promoted by the Biden administration.

The fact that American children are a primary target of this indoctrination is disgusting evidence of a dying culture. All this chaos is the Marxist playbook in action – destabilization to usher in a new system. Glenn reveals the decades of painstaking work by devoted Marxists to organize and indoctrinate. As of now, their plan is working. Will law-abiding and God-fearing Americans refuse the planned takeover?

'This is INTENTIONAL': Financial expert says Democrats are ruining economy 'on purpose’ — here's why

Former investment banker Carol Roth joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to answer his latest questions regarding the economy: Are we in a recession, despite what the White House claims? At what point do the Fed’s interest rate hikes become dangerous? And how are we expected to bring down inflation when interest rates continue to climb?

No matter what the White House says, the economy is not healthy, and spending billions of dollars on the "Inflation Reduction Act" won't fix inflation. The reality is that the Fed's tools can't fix the supply and demand imbalance "unless the Fed can stop printing money and start printing oil and printing food," Carol quipped. "But they're really focused on the demand side, not the supply side. What we need to be focused on is how do we get more supply in these key areas so that we balance out that from the supply side, not the demand side," she explained.

Carol emphasized that the "Inflation Reduction Act of 2022," which is now backed by West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, will only make things worse —and the Democrats know it.

"[Senate Majority Leader] Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) came out and said it, [the Inflation Reduction Act] is Green New Deal Light. This is about spending more money on their climate hoax instead of fighting inflation. He put it out there, it's in a tweet ... they're saying the quiet part out loud. They don't care; this is what they're trying to do," she added.

"I'm calling it 'the Great Reset-sion,'" Carol said. "This is intentional. They are doing this to us on purpose."

Carol went on to explain what this all means for you and what's still to come. Watch the video clip below. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
