Did Glenn run the Boston Marathon?

GLENN: Now, here's a big oxymoron. Now let's go to Happy in California.

CALLER: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: What's happening, Happy?

CALLER: Hey. Well, you asked me to call back in because I and Flat Glenn ran the Boston marathon on April the 20th and you asked for a followup and pictures, et cetera.

GLENN: Okay. April 20th.

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: Have you checked the calendar?

GLENN: No, I ran it. I finished it. We ran for

GLENN: Have you been running since April 20th?

CALLER: Yeah, we ran for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. We finished. I've got pictures of Flat Glenn with a medal. I want to send it to you.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: And video of the excursion is at http://run.flatglenn.com/.

GLENN: Okay. Now, for anybody who doesn't know what Flat Glenn is, I don't even really know how Flat Glenn started, but I just realized somebody with the name of Happy probably does. How did Flat Glenn start, Happy?

CALLER: Actually I honestly don't know, either. I just love him like I love you.

GLENN: So Flat Glenn is one of the Insiders is an artist and he made this is it on wood or fiberboard?

CALLER: Kind of a pressed board, yes.

GLENN: So he made this Flat Glenn caricature and then made it on the pressed board and now it has traveled the world like I don't know how many times over and people take pictures. The Insiders, they will say, hey, I'm going to the Great Wall; send Flat Glenn. And so then there's this picture of Flat Glenn standing there. It's really, I don't understand it but it's kind of actually kind of cool. But I would just

CALLER: The big problem on marathon day was that there were over 200 Duncan doughnut shops that I had to get Flat Glenn to run past.

STU: (Laughing).

CALLER: Plus all of the progressive bookstores on all those campuses, oh, my God, it was really tough.

GLENN: Was he shouting, Woodrow Wilson sucks! Listen, Happy, do one thing for me. When you say "We ran the marathon,"

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: Would you just at least recognize for yourself that Flat Glenn isn't a real person?

CALLER: I might be able to do that but, you know, it was for a good cause. I mean, it was to try to find a could you for cancer and

GLENN: Did you find one?

CALLER: Well, not yet but, you know, the best day or the worst day of running a marathon is better than the best day of chemo.

GLENN: Have you had cancer before?

CALLER: No, I haven't, but that's the only reason that I do, that I run marathons is to raise money. Raise money

GLENN: For cancer or everything?

CALLER: For research.

GLENN: For cancer research?

CALLER: You bet.

GLENN: Do you know somebody who had cancer?

STU: Can't he just care about people?

GLENN: Yes, he can care about people! But he's like, "I run all the time with a piece of wood strapped to my back."

CALLER: No, no.

GLENN: I've got to do it for cancer! I mean, I'm just looking for some I mean, you can care about cancer because you're, you know, whatever.

CALLER: No, I met an 8 year old girl who had been fighting cancer since she was 2 1/2 and that was my initial reason for starting to run and to run for a cure and that was five years ago, and I've done 11 marathons and raised thousands of dollars.

GLENN: See, that's a good reason. Now, the bad side of Glenn, Flat Glenn would say, "So wait a minute, all I heard was you met an 8 year old girl and then you started to run." That's I mean, and I think those things should be thought about before you came on air. Happy, thanks so much and congratulations and send us the pictures, will you? That's Happy in California, and I'm Sad in New York. Back in a second.

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.
