Korean peace: Either history will be made or we're being set up to be duped again

Does it kind of seem like everyone’s jumping the gun a little bit lately when it comes to North Korea? Now, don’t get me wrong, last week’s meeting between the two Korean leaders was historic, but it was hard to see it as anything more than a suped-up dog and pony show.

The two leaders shook hands while posing for cameras on each side of the border, and Kim Jong-un rode around in his limo with his platoon of bodyguards running ridiculously in formation around the car. Kim Jong-un pledged to denuclearize, shut down his nuclear testing facility, and even put an end to the seven-decade-long war.

It was a heck of a spectacle, but I fear it may be little more than just that --- a highly produced and choreographed show.

I woke up this morning and saw that the president of South Korea has called on President Trump to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on North Korea. Now I realize that presidents have been given that award for far less --- Obama received his for waking up that morning and brushing his teeth --- but we might want to tap the brakes a bit here.

I’m not diminishing what the Trump administration has achieved here, but South Korea is clearly engaging in a charm offensive. Look, I get it, if this whole thing goes south --- pun kind of intended --- South Korea would take the worst of it. They’re desperate, and for good reason, but we can’t let that manipulate us into making a mistake here.

I hate to do this, but I’m going to rain a little on this parade. Look, the North Koreans are smart. They should have fallen after they lost their benefactor, the Soviet Union, but they endured on. Somehow a country the size of PENNSYL-FRIGGIN-VANIA has been able to hold the attention of the entire world for SEVENTY YEARS.

It’s really kind of amazing. Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union, North Korea has held our attention by dangling its nuclear program like a worm on a hook. It even tempted President Clinton in the same way President Trump is being tempted now. Clinton gave in, dropping sanctions and providing humanitarian aid. He even sent Madeline Albright to meet with Kim Jong-il in the same way Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong-un.

North Korea has promised a lot of things lately, but all that is moot until we hear what they want in return.

Those negotiations ultimately failed when it was found out that North Korea was continuing their nuclear program in secret. But in the end, they got what they wanted. Clinton dropped sanctions and gave relief. Their nuclear program continued.

North Korea has promised a lot of things lately, but all that is moot until we hear what they want in return. Nothing is free, and I fear that they’re going to ask for more than we’re willing to give. Never forget, North Korea is STILL North Korea. They haven’t changed. They’re still murdering their own people, and more recently Otto Warmbier, from within concentration camps. Two things are about to happen.

Either history will be made, OR the entire world is being set up to be duped --- AGAIN --- the same way North Korea has been manipulating the world and surviving for the last 70 years. Let’s pray that it's the former.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
