Couple Sank Boat They Sold Everything to Buy. The Internet Wants to Give Them a Second Chance.

It’s a story that could only happen in 2018.

Nikki Walsh, 24, and her boyfriend, Tanner Broadwell, 26, dreamed of leaving behind a normal life and sailing the Caribbean. They sold everything they could and bought a 28-foot sailboat for $5,000.

Unfortunately, the couple didn’t have sailing experience prior to buying the boat, and they didn’t buy insurance. Broadwell’s father taught the pair to sail, but it wasn’t enough to help them navigate the foggy night when the sailboat hit something in the water and capsized.

Walsh and Broadwell aren’t ready to “give up on their dreams,” and apparently, people don’t mind helping them. The couple’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $14,800 so far to finance the couple’s sailing dream, surpassing their $10K goal.

Glenn and Stu talked about this unbelievable millennial story on today’s show.

GLENN: So tonight you don't want to miss TV. There is something really wrong. (?) and we're going to use just the facts from the New York Times. Of course not yesterday's New York Times. We're going to tie a few stories together for the New York Times because they refuse to tie them together for themselves. So we will show you that tonight at 5 o'clock with the rest of the media, would like to pretend this isn't the article you're looking for.

STU: And then at 5:30, the news and why it matters. The brand-new (?) please check that out. (?) Sarah Gonzalez.

GLENN: So some millennials got into a boat.

STU: They did. This is a very sad show today.

GLENN: Sounds like a joke.

STU: First of all, we sound (?) disappointed by the experience.

GLENN: That was a really sad --

STU: That was -- (?)

GLENN: They did -- you know, meanwhile, stuff. They weren't beheading people.

STU: Some millennials decided they wanted to leave the world behind. Because how can we live our lives when we're working most of the day and you have to pay so much just to live.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: So purchase (?) a boat that is 50 years old. They sold all their possessions. Bought this boat. Decided to embark on their journey. There was one problem. Neither of them had learned how to sail. They also didn't buy insurance.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

STU: Perhaps, (?)

GLENN: The nice thing about boats, Stu. Once you buy it, you don't have to (?)

STU: No maintenance costs. There's no effort at all.

GLENN: Those are easy. Those are great.

STU: Well, they capsized (?) to Key West. They were pulled into a channel. Ran aground on a sandbar. Either were hurt. They did save their dog. And they tried to get the internet to pay for their new boat. They needed $10,000 to salvage their boat. And they still don't know how to sail. They still have not (?) 13,108 I couldn't even dollars because the rest of society is so stupid.

GLENN: Misses me off. Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. We'll see you tonight at 5:00.

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.
