Here’s What You Need to Know About Trump’s Decision to Shrink 2 National Monuments

President Donald Trump signed two proclamations Monday afternoon to shrink Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments by 85 percent and 50 percent respectively. Backlash from leaders of the outdoor recreation industry, environmentalist groups and some Indian tribes began almost as soon as the decision was announced.

Yvon Chouinard, billionaire owner of Patagonia, immediately announced plans to suethe Trump administration and delivered the following message via his website’s homepage

The President Stole Your Land. In an illegal move, the president just reduced the size of Bear Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments. This is the largest elimination of protected land in American history.

“Ah, no, they didn’t ‘eliminate’ the land,” Glenn responded to Chouinard’s message on the show today. “The land is still there and the Federal government still owns it. If you like to wear Patagonia clothes and go hiking, what the president did was make it allowable for you to hike there. Otherwise, you just had to go stand on the road and look at it.”

Glenn took to the chalkboard to clear up all the confusion and misinformation regarding our country’s national monuments which in accordance with the Antiquities Act of 1906 are designated by the president and protected by the government as ‘important objects of historic or scientific interest.’

“The Antiquities Act was supposed to protect archaeological sites from souvenir hunters,” explained Glenn, adding, “Once the land is declared a national monument, it’s closed. And I mean closed to ranching, mining, and development — but also to you. Don’t you dare pitch a tent there. This is not a park.”

Conservationists will be relieved to learn that the land in Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante no longer designated as national monuments will still belong to the Federal government and will continue to be protected from development and exploitation. The difference is: you just might be able to use it.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
