'Our Doors Are Open': New Orleans Sends a Powerful Message to Houston

Texas will be dealing with the effects of Tropical Storm Harvey for a long time. The storm peaked as a Category 4 hurricane to flood tens of thousands of homes and claim dozens of lives. In its wake, the city of New Orleans has signed an open letter to the state of Texas remembering how Texans pitched in to help after Hurricane Katrina and vowing to offer assistance in any way needed.

“Twelve years ago, you took in hundreds of thousands of us,” read the letter, which was published Sunday in the Houston Chronicle. “You opened your homes, closets, and kitchens. You found schools for our kids and jobs to tide us over.”

On radio Monday, Glenn took a moment to read the letter and admire New Orleans’ example of Americans coming together.

“The enormous loss of property and livelihood provides us an opportunity to wrap our arms around American neighbors who need our help,” Glenn said.

“Our doors are open,” New Orleans wrote in the letter. “Our clothes come in every size. There’s hot food on the stove, and our cabinets are well-stocked. We promise to always share what we have.”

GLENN: Why is a horrific tragedy the price we have to pay?

Hurricane Irma slammed into the Florida Keys Sunday morning. Then it made its way west, up the coast of Florida. Weakening for a while to a category two, but by the time it hit Tampa overnight, it felt anything, but a category two. Irma's eye didn't strike Miami directly, but the city along with the most of the southern and west coast of Florida were hit with storm surges and widespread flooding. And it's not over yet.

We still don't know the overall damage, but it's safe to say, it's already one of the worst storms in Florida's history. Followed by one of the worst storms in American history.

Half of the state of Florida is out of power today. The combination, one-two punch of Harvey and Irma, come just as we are reminded today of the 16th anniversary of one of the most tragic days in American history, certainly the most tragic day of my lifetime. The human toll of these hurricanes, thank God, does not believe anywhere close in America to the horror of September 11th, 2001.

But the enormous loss of property and livelihood provides us an opportunity to wrap our arms around American neighbors who need our help.

Do you remember how we all felt? It's September 11th. Do you remember how we all felt that night? I remember that night after working late, we all went to an Outback Steakhouse. And we -- we shook our heads and couldn't believe what our day was like. And we talked about how America was about to change. But we listened to each other.

We helped one another. We were on the same team for a while. You could feel it in the air.

I think we felt that same thing with Hurricane Harvey. We have the opportunity to rally again, to get back on the same page about something other than ourselves.

After Katrina, the city of Houston opened their arms to the people of New Orleans. And now, New Orleans wants to return the favor. The city captured the spirit in a heartfelt message to Houston, I'll share later. It's amazing.

The way of life you love will carry on, they wrote. You taught us that. Your courage and your care continues to inspire our whole city. We couldn't be more proud to call you our neighbors, our friends, and our family. Texas forever. We're with you.

The attitude of service is what made America great. Why do we keep forgetting that?

America is great because America is good. And we have seen it on display.

My question is: Why does it always seem to take a horrific tragedy? Why is that always the price we have to pay to get there?

During World War II, FDR called America the arsenal of democracy. Today, what we're seeing in Houston, what we're going to see in Florida, is America as the arsenal of generosity.

You want to make America great again, let's just continue to be known for that.

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.
