North Korea Has Reopened a Hotline With South Korea. What Does It Mean?

North Korea startled the world today by restoring a telephone hotline with South Korea, an overture that lets the two countries speak directly for the first time in years.

On today’s show, Pat and Jeffy talked about President Donald Trump’s strong stance on North Korea, and a caller praised Trump’s foreign policy.

“Things seem to be maybe even improving,” Pat said. “All of a sudden, North Korea is making these gestures to South Korea.”

PAT: North Korea just reopened their border hotline with South Korea.

Does that mean something is working? Kind of seems like it.

JEFFY: It sure does.

PAT: Yeah, it's been tense over the last six or eight months. And everybody was wondering, was this the right thing to do? You just really ratcheted up the heat, but now it seems to have cooled off. Things seem to be maybe even improving somewhat.

All of a sudden, North Korea is making these gestures to South Korea. They're reopening the border with South Korea. They just did that today. They already tested it. It apparently works. It's open again. They've also extended an olive branch to the Olympic games that are going to be held in South Korea next month.

JEFFY: The winter Olympics happens next month, man.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah. So there was talk by Nikki Haley that we might not even go because the tensions were so high.

JEFFY: Yeah, because it would so dangerous.

PAT: That's down. That's over. We're definitely going. And North Korea has basically promised not to do anything.

JEFFY: You got to do it definitely had something to do with Trump's big stick, look, we're bigger, have a nice day.

PAT: Right. You know, and I said it's reminiscent of the my dog is bigger than your dog Ken-L Ration campaign.

(music)

My button is bigger than your button. My button is bigger than yours.

JEFFY: That's classic.

PAT: Did it work? I kind of think it did. It kind of feels like it did.

JEFFY: It sure looks like it.

PAT: 888-727-BECK.

Let's go to Elizabeth. No, it's 888. Hey, Elizabeth, welcome.

CALLER: Hi, Pat and Jeffy, happy to talk to you.

PAT: You too.

CALLER: I just wanted to call because -- well, first of all, I really have to commend you and Jeffy on your attitude about Trump. I was a Never Trumper primary and also in the general election.

JEFFY: It was a tough time, man.

PAT: It was a tough time.

CALLER: It was. I mean, I started out just because the media and the people in Washington, I just started out feeling I had to defend him.

PAT: Yes.

JEFFY: Thank you.

CALLER: But there's one thing I have to disagree with you on.

PAT: Okay.

CALLER: I love the tweets. I absolutely love the tweets. I'm like a kid at Christmas waiting for Santa, what's he going to bring me this time?

PAT: Are you?

JEFFY: You're definitely not alone.

PAT: Well, Christmas comes every day for you then. Because those tweets are non-stop.

CALLER: It sure does.

JEFFY: I was concerned this morning. I was working -- filling in for Doc Thompson on the morning show, on TheBlaze Radio Network, and President Trump didn't tweet all morning.

CALLER: Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: I thought he lost his phone. I thought we had to send help into the White House.

PAT: Fortunately --

JEFFY: He found it.

CALLER: I know it's like he's always pulling people's chains. He's got a quirky sense of mischief that comes through there. But, no, and don't get me wrong, I pray every single day for Donald Trump, for God to give him wisdom because sometimes the tweets go a little far.

But can you imagine if Solomon tweeted, you know, okay. You broads, stop squabbling, I've got a big sword. I mean, I don't know if he would do that.

PAT: I don't know either. There was a lot of wisdom there with that guy.

JEFFY: That's all.

CALLER: I'm so proud now to call him my president. I never thought I would be. And, of course, there's also -- we don't have to see Barack and Michelle in the White House all the time.

PAT: Thank heaven.

JEFFY: Amen.

CALLER: He gets a lot of points for that.

PAT: Yes, he does. Thanks a lot, Elizabeth, appreciate it.

JEFFY: That's for sure.

PAT: I mean, people do love it.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.

GLENN ON TUCKER: The elites are using COVID to reshape the world

Wasn't life supposed to go back to normal once the vaccines were widely distributed? The lack of information coming from the government elites should be a sign that maybe, just maybe — all their experts are out of ways to spin this? Or could it be the elites are using COVID to reshape the world into THEIR own image?

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.
