Dan Blog: Where in the world is Joe Biden?

Joe Biden burst on the scene promising to join Barack Obama and make some real change in this country. He never could have imagined the scope of the change he’d experience in just a short time on the campaign trail.

Just a few short weeks ago Joe Biden had the press hovering outside the gates of his Delaware home, waiting like vultures over their prey, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Senator and maybe even a scoop. Once selected, Biden was all too happy to hop aboard the Obama express to the White House. Perhaps it was that daydream dancing in his head that had him talking about Amtrak all the time.

Paying nearly $200 round trip to ride the super plush, super high speed Acela Express train everyday to and from Washington D.C. isn’t exactly the ‘everyman’ tale that Obama had hoped to hear from his newly crowned running mate. Joe---tell me about the Corolla you drive around or something---anything but the most expensive, CEO train in America! I guess Barack Obama was too blinded by his angelic choir and foam Greek columns to notice or care. Neither candidate cared---- after all, the democrats could do no wrong. It’s time for change!

Then John McCain announced his running mate.

And---to quote the immortal host of ‘Unsolved Mysteries’, Robert Stack (God rest his soul)---‘he was never seen again’.

Glenn mentioned it on the radio program that he has vanished---and it’s true. Joe Biden got some change all right---the only problem is that the change involves going from shining star to flickering flameout.

Here are about the only two things I’ve seen in the media in the last couple of days that the press felt worthy to mention of Biden. First up:

Biden: Palin not a step forward for women---she’s a step backwards

Ouch. Yeah, that’s the road you want to go down, Joe---to bash women. No seriously, that will play well. Go with it. Don’t forget to work a train mention in there too.

And the other story:

Biden comments called a ‘new low’

Catchy headline with no meat, perhaps? Biden hopes you think so and brush off the headline because if you click on the link it only gets worse. When talking about special needs children and stem cell research, he said ‘well guess what folks, if you care about it, why don’t you support stem cell research?’.

Joe—good job getting at least some media attention---bad job on it being because you are questioning how much Sarah Palin cares about special needs kids…you know, ones LIKE HER OWN child.

Thinks aren’t looking good for the Amtrak warrior these days. Despite his superhuman taxpayer funded efforts of riding in a huge, plush recliner for an agonizing 90 minutes to and fro work---which make Marcus Luttrell’s efforts look like kids play in comparison (Marcus—I know you know this but just for the sake of my own life---that was sarcasm) ---Joe is somehow not stacking up against the hockey mom from Wasilla.

At least Joe has a lot of time on his hands on that train, as he’s looking out the window and into houses, to wonder just how in the heck he’s going to not get embarrassed in his debate with Sarah Barracuda.

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.
