Who Is the Most Honorable Family in Politics Today?

With both George and Barbara Bush being hospitalized just days before the presidential inauguration --- and in light of the respectful letter Mr. Bush sent President-elect Trump about missing the festivities --- Glenn and his co-hosts paused to reflect on the Bush family.

"Say what you want about the Bush policy, but they respect the office of the presidency," Co-host Pat Gray said.

Glenn concurred, noting the reverence Bush 41, Bush 43 and Jeb have for the United States and the presidency.

"I truly believe that the Bush family is one of, I would say probably the, most honorable family in politics today," Glenn added.

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Do we have an update on George and Barbara Bush? I know she was hospitalized yesterday, which was really concerning. But he has been -- he was really sick, he had to have an operation yesterday to remove something from his throat, a blockage in his throat. Supposedly doing well. She is just in, as a precaution, because she was coughing a lot.

JEFFY: I'm sure she was just -- I mean, that happens a lot. Husband and wife come in like that. And she's really concerned and starting to freak out.

GLENN: Yeah, they're the kind of couple too though that I think love each other so much and have been together for so long, that they're the kind of couple that dies together, you know what I mean?

I said that to Tania. She said -- because I hadn't heard that Barbara Bush was in the hospital. She had just gotten a text alert. And I said, "No, it's George H.W. Bush."

And she said, "No, Barbara has just been put in too." And we were talking about it. And I said, "That's the kind of couple that they die together." They're just this sweet pair that go together.

And she said, "I don't know. I think maybe they'd do anything to not have to comment on why they're not going to go to the Trump inauguration."

What do you think is the giant scam?

STU: I don't know. His letters seem to kind of --

GLENN: I didn't read the letter. I didn't read the letter.

STU: I mean, he said like, "My doctors tell me if I go outside in January, I might wind up 6 feet under."

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: It's interesting that really until the election, the Bushes really did not show any love at all to Donald Trump.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Since then, they have really respected the process and they support him.

GLENN: They have to. That's what we're supposed to do. We're supposed to do that. You can disagree with the policies --

PAT: Say what you want about the Bush policy, but they respect the office of the presidency. I think -- I think H.W. did. George W. Bush. As much as I'm not a fan, he did and does.

GLENN: I have -- and Jeb.

PAT: Jeb.

GLENN: I truly believe that the -- the Bush family is one of I would say probably the most honorable family in politics today. Do you think of a -- do you think of a family -- I mean, there's very few.

STU: Yeah, they definitely respect the office. And I think they do those things well. I mean, you would expect it. It's the only family that I can think of off the top of my head that's had two president --

GLENN: Kennedys.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, not two presidents.

PAT: Name another guy too, name another man who would have put up with the bashing he's received over the last years, where everything has been blamed on him. It was absurd the things they blamed on him. They said nothing about him. He never said anything. You never heard George W. Bush, "No, I didn't do that. That's not my fault. That's Obama." You never heard any of that come out of him. He just took it. He just took it.

STU: Cheney was a little bit more outspoken.

PAT: And you would expect that from Cheney.

GLENN: Yeah. George Bush said to me right at the end of his time in the Oval, he said, "I am prepared -- I did what I felt was right. And I am prepared to be the most hated man in the next 50 years. Let history, once everybody involved in this is gone, let history judge."

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: "I'm prepared."

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
