GLENN: First let me go to Pat Gray who, boy, oh, boy, in Houston, Texas. You guys are suffering from global warming of biblical proportions.

GRAY: Oh, like crazy. Yesterday the global warming has kicked in to the extent that didn't get out of the 30s in Houston, Texas yesterday. We were melting, melting. Oh, it's tragic, tragic.

GLENN: Let me ask you this, Pat. Global warming is so bad in Houston, Texas. When was the last time you had a snowstorm?

GRAY: Well, we actually had a snowstorm in 2004. That makes two this decade. Now, the time before that was thirty years ago. We've had two within four years in this. And see, that's because of the incredibly hot temperatures and melting of the icecaps and all of that, right? It snowed on Christmas Eve in 2004. This is the second -- it's tied for the earliest it's ever snowed in Houston. The last time it snowed this early -- you know, and it didn't stick but it did snow -- was 1944. In other words, we're burning up, we are burning up here.

GLENN: You are so hot. Did you not see the movie where they were all trapped in the New York library?

GRAY: Day after tomorrow, yeah. They had to escape from the cold that was sneaking up on them and you could see it running behind them, right? You could see it coming up on them behind them?

GLENN: Remember?

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you see what's happening here?

GRAY: We're flash-freezing, aren't we?

GLENN: You are.

GRAY: It's getting so hot that it's becoming cold. Oh, boy.

GLENN: Look, it's the circle of life.

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: It gets to like 100 degrees.

GRAY: Right.

GLENN: And then in some cases -- 

GRAY: It's 100 below?

GLENN: It becomes 100 below. It's a circle. It's like the crazy genius thing.

GRAY: That makes perfect sense. It's like the idiots of Unt deal.

GLENN: Yeah, exactly right. And idiots does come to mind in this story but I'm sure it's only those Holocaust deniers and the people who deny global warming.

GRAY: They have got snowing, practically white-out conditions in New Orleans this morning in, by the way.

GLENN: You know what -- isn't that interesting. Oh, as Bush leaves, white-out conditions in New Orleans.

GRAY: See what I'm saying?

GLENN: See what I'm saying there? White-out. Why not blackouts, huh?


GRAY: I thought it was the chocolate city. No, not according to Bush. As soon as he leaves, yes, as you pointed out, white-out.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Anything he can do to make that city white.

All right. So Pat, tell me about Compean and Ramos.

GRAY: There's a real push behind the scenes to grant a commutation. They've, you know, all along the Bush administration has said, "Well, there's a process." Really? What was the process for the 177 you've commuted or pardoned so far? Did they all go through a specific -- no. Did Scooter Libby go through the process? No, he just, he granted him a pardon because it was a Draconian sentence. So anyway, now they've gone through all that process. They've filled out the papers, they formally requested it, they've gone through the pardon chief or czar or whoever that is and there's real, there's a real push in the Senate -- it's bipartisan actually, and in the congress and they are putting real pressure on the Justice Department and there's been apparently some movement within the Justice Department that this could become a reality. And they are pushing for a commutation rather than a pardon because we all know that this is way too personal and nobody's going to admit any kind of guilt or wrongdoing here. Fine. Just let them go home.

GLENN: Just let them go home.

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: They have already served more time than they would have if Johnny Sutton wouldn't have trumped up that charge.

GRAY: Right. Yes, that's right.

GLENN: So -- and nobody's asking for, you know, expunging of the record.

GRAY: Nope.

GLENN: Just time served, they're done.

GRAY: We're not asking for any mea culpas, we're not asking anybody to fall on their sword, no resignation. Just let them go home to their families and then they can work out the appeals process through the court system and deal with that. And I know they want to, but that's not what we're trying to get accomplished with the Bush administration now.

GLENN: Right. So what is the best way? Because I don't want people to write the White House and -- 

GRAY: No.

GLENN: And to be rude or anything. It's just got to be, "Look, please, please -- 

GRAY: Just do the right thing.

GLENN: Please let the right thing happen. They have served more time than they would have if it hadn't have been a game here. Please just let them go home to their families. Is the best way to deal with this, Pat, to make phone calls or to fax or to write, e-mail the White House or to leave it alone and call your congressman? What's the best thing to do?

GRAY: No, I would do all of those things. I would call -- but again, like you pointed out, it's got to be really respectful. I would keep it positive. I wouldn't try to place any blame, "Look, you did this, you did that." Let's not do any of that. Just, isn't it time these guys go home. Let's just let them go home to their families. Now they've served their time, they paid their price, they paid for the crime.

GLENN: If they done, if this doesn't happen, most likely these guys are going to be in jail for the full eleven years.

GRAY: That's what it looks like to me. Nobody's heard, as far as I know, Obama even mention them. I have no idea where he stands on it, none.

GLENN: Nor will he.

GRAY: No.

GLENN: Nor will he. This will be -- these guys are going to be forgotten. In about four weeks they will be completely forgotten if they are not taken care of right now.

GRAY: Yeah, that's -- 

GLENN: Go ahead.

GRAY: That's what we're afraid of is that if it doesn't happen now, it may never. So, yeah, the paperwork's all done. Next week is a critical, critical week for Ramos and Compean. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers and just do what you can. Phone calls, letters, and e-mail and very, very respectful and positive.

GLENN: Okay. Pat, keep me up to speed on this, will you?

GRAY: Okay.

GLENN: Whatever you do, for goodness sake, bundle up. Go to a library.

GRAY: Thank you.

GLENN: If you go to a library, bring some Dura-flame logs or whatever. Don't burn books. Don't burn books.

GRAY: Appreciate the safety tip.

GLENN: Thank you very much. All right, Pat Gray.

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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
