Developing: President Trump will meet with Kim Jong-un face to face

In a bizarre development, President Trump has decided to meet with Kim Jong-un. Apparently, it's not a joke. And I hope the president brings a taste-tester with him.

South Korean officials were at the White House to brief top administration officials about South Korea’s recent talks with North Korea in Pyongyang.

According to South Korean officials, Trump’s agreement to a meeting came after Kim Jong Un said he would halt nuclear tests and move toward denuclearization. They also said Kim Jong Un understood that joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises will continue as planned.

South Korean National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong announced the future meeting in a brief statement at the White House. He said Kim Jong Un “expressed eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.” The White House said no specific meeting date has been scheduled.

A report yesterday said a letter delivered by the South Koreans to President Trump contained Kim Jong Un’s message about denuclearization and wanting to meet with Trump.

But a senior administration official later told reporters that Kim’s message was verbally delivered by the South Korean officials during their Oval Office briefing with Trump.

The same senior official tried to downplay the proposed meeting saying, “What we’re talking about is an invitation by the leader of North Korea to meet face to face with the president of the United States. The president has accepted that invitation.”

In the meantime, the status of current sanctions and pressure remain unchanged.

No sitting U.S. president has ever met with a leader of North Korea.

Trump said he thinks the North Koreans are “sincere” in their desire to meet. He credited our “very, very strong” sanctions, and increased Chinese pressure.

CNN was right. If he pulls this off, he will be remembered as a great president for this alone. However, in today's upside down world, I expect the Nobel Peace Prize to go to Kim Jong-un and not Donald Trump, if it were achieved.

But we've got a long way to go.

No sitting U.S. president has ever met with a leader of North Korea. Former president Jimmy Carter visited North Korea in 1994, giving then-dictator Kim Il Sung a hug after their meeting. North Korea hinted around about freezing their nuclear weapons program back then too.

That was almost 24 years ago. Unfortunately, the more things change, the more they stay the same in North Korea.

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.
