Glenn Beck: What Would 'Sully' Do?




Watch Glenn Beck weeknights at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

Here's the one thing: There's a lesson we can teach our kids in three big stories in the news: President Obama's dwindling Cabinet picks, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and the pilot who parked the plane in the river.

In the same day, Tom Daschle withdrew his name as Obama’s pick for health and human services as did the woman who was supposed to be chief performance officer -- both for tax problems.

Phelps won a bunch of gold medals in the Olympics, yet he's already had a DUI and there's a picture of him smoking pot out of a bong.

While everyone makes mistakes, including me, is there anyone in public life trying to hold themselves to a higher standard?

Why are we in this mess? Because no one thinks their actions matter.

Whether they serve or not, the damage is already done by all these Cabinet picks. As for the ones who are in, because they were too big to fail, they are setting a poor example.

In Phelps's case, they say it doesn't matter what you do in your personal life, just keep performing. That's a lie.

Then we go to our third story: "Sully" is an actual hero, because he was able to safely land a plane on the Hudson River, saving everybody and doing something no one else has ever done before. A couple weeks after that miracle, while no one else was watching, he quietly calls the library to apologize that he can't return a book, since it's in the hold of the plane.

Nobody would have said a word if he didn't return this book and nobody would even know because he didn't hold a press conference or beat his chest about it. He's a hero. But "Sully" knows that things matter the most when no one is looking. The guy is still striving to be a better person and do the right thing. He doesn't even need to read the book, because he's already living it. The subject of the book? Professional ethics.

"Sully" is the guy who we should have as our treasury secretary, because he knows how to handle a crisis and acts ethically when no one is watching. All the other stuff he can learn on the job.

Maybe the standard of "What Would Jesus Do?" is too high, because Jesus is perfect. We're not and everyone makes mistakes.

Maybe we should all wear bracelets that say, "What Would 'Sully' Do?"

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
