Gerald Walpin Is Superman




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

We've been telling you about the firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin, who the White House claims is, "confused, disoriented and unable to answer questions."

Well, I've spoken to him twice before and Wednesday night I even put him through the official state mini mental exam to check him out. Believe me, the only thing wrong with Gerald Walpin is that his heart hurts from being thrown under the bus by the system he served for so long.

The one thing that nobody in Washington or the media seems to understand is that Gerald Walpin is superman.

Let me tell you a personal story about my grandfather. He was my hero; he was Santa Claus; the strongest man in the world. He was a sheriff, a vet. He even punched a horse out when it needed to be put down; he was a strong man; he was my superman.

When I was 14 years old, my family took away the keys to his truck after he drove it through the window of Sambo's restaurant. Three weeks later he started driving his tractor instead. When they took the tractor keys away he started riding the lawnmower.

Then, all of a sudden, grandpa just went away; I never saw him again. My family thought it was best that I didn't see him in that state, so that I'd remember the man he was: the superhero.

Well, Gerald Walpin is somebody's superman, too, and he is living proof of the American dream.

Walpin grew up in the Bronx — so poor that his parents didn't eat dinner so that he could. They'd avoid answering the doorbell because it could be the gasman. And even though he worked hard enough to get into Harvard, he was unable to pay for it.

But Walpin wouldn't let his dream die. He wanted to be a litigator, so he went to Yale law, took on massive loans, eventually got a scholarship and graduated in 1955.

He's also been Superman to Sheila, his wife of 52 years. She still remembers their first date, it was a double-blind date and Gerald took her to a cheap restaurant because it was all he could afford. They were married less than a year later.

Gerald Walpin is Superman to his three great children: Amanda, Edward and Jennifer. They know their dad as a 1st lieutenant in JAG; a special U.S. prosecutor who took on the longest criminal jury case at the time; a pitbull who went after conservative Roy Cohn, the infamous council to an aide of Senator Joseph McCarthy. They know him as an attorney who helped to indict Nixon's top two Cabinet members and who represented Mia Farrow against Woody Allen.

And they know him as a great dad: Taking them on trips all over the world, from Russia to Afghanistan to Turkey and everywhere in between.

Gerald Walpin made such an impression on his children that when the youngest one graduated from college and could've asked for anything she wanted, she asked that the family take another one of those cherished vacations together.

Gerald Walpin has done amazing things for his children, his six grandchildren and his country. But none of that matters to our government, which is trying to tear down this distinguished man by claiming that he's like my grandpa: Driving along on the side of that road to Sambo's on his lawnmower.

He's not.

When the government's thirst for money and power would drive them to destroy a man like my grandpa, your dad or Gerald Walpin, who is next?

Wednesday night I asked him, "Do you think you're going to win?"

"No," he said.

"So why are you doing it?"

"Because I couldn't live with myself if I didn't."

To his wife, to his children, to his family, Gerald Walpin is more of a hero now than he's ever been because he's doing the one thing that so many others are afraid to: He's standing against those who can make the planet spin in the other direction.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
