The President Named His Inauguration Day a 'National Day of Patriotic Devotion'

Glenn reacted sharply to President Donald Trump's recent executive order retroactively making the day he was inaugurated into a sort of national holiday.

"Can I ask, when did nationalism become okay?" Glenn said on radio Tuesday.

Cohost Pat Gray responded by pointing out there's a fine line between patriotism and nationalism. And when does patriotism become nationalism?

"When you lose reason," Glenn said.

GLENN: Can we just discuss something and you guys convince me it's not creepy? Can you guys do that? I need to be convinced that this is not creepy.

PAT: Sure.

GLENN: The president signed an actual executive order making the day he was inaugurated retroactively like a national holiday.

PAT: That we can't celebrate because it already happened?

GLENN: Well, is it for every year? This is what I'm trying to make sure --

STU: No, I think it's just a one-day --

GLENN: Just a one-day thing. Retroactively -- what did he name it, Stu?

STU: Give me one minute. I think it's National Patriotic Devotion Day.

GLENN: It's scary. That's spooky to me. It's just spooky to me.

PAT: That's not spooky at all.

(chuckling)

I can see other countries doing that.

JEFFY: We get to celebrate it.

GLENN: Raise your hand if you think that's at all spooky. Yeah, okay. Two for, two against. All right.

STU: It said -- it was the forty-fifth president proclaimed January 20th, 2017, his Inauguration Day, to be a National Day of Patriotic Devotion. Trump made the proclamation, quote --

PAT: Does that mean to him then, kind of? Sounds like --

GLENN: No.

PAT: Sounds like a tribute it to himself.

GLENN: Listen to the --

PAT: All right. Let's hear the body of the work there.

STU: In order to strengthen our bonds to each other and our country and to renew the duties of government to the people.

PAT: Okay.

STU: A new national pride stirs the American soul and inspires the American heart. We are one people, united by a common destiny and shared purpose.

GLENN: Can I ask, when did nationalism become okay?

STU: November 7th, right? Wasn't it?

GLENN: Seriously. When did -- people write about this new nationalism --

PAT: We've always been super patriotic. Used to be called jingoistic. But --

GLENN: Yeah, but we're not nationalist. Yeah. But we were never -- when somebody would say we were a nationalist, we would say --

PAT: Well, when does patriotism become nationalism? I don't know. I don't know where that line is.

GLENN: When you lose reason. When you lose reason.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So I don't know. But people are throwing around that we're a new nationalist country. And I don't like that. That's not good.

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
