Glenn not radical enough?

GLENN: Line 4 with Steve in Mesa. Hello, Steve.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: Good. Go ahead.

CALLER: Well, you inspired me to start learning my history and I started with the Constitution and I'm reading the book The Politically incorrect Guide to the Constitution. And the one thing that jumped out at me when I read this is that there was a debate by our founders on whether to have a national government which is top down, you know, based on the British model or a bottom up version of the government called a federal government where the states gave the rights, you know, bottom up to the federal government. We have and they agreed to have a federal government where the states retained the rights and gave the federal government very limited rights. In fact, the Bill of Rights was first rejected by the founders because they said the federal government has no power anyway. You know, we wrote out a couple of detailed powers that the federal government has. So you don't need a Bill of Rights. It's limited in the first place. But thankfully they said, no, no, that's not good enough. The cleanest form of government is the government that is closest to the people. That's what the founders wanted. So the local government, the state government was where all the power was because the people could control it. At the federal level you no longer can control the power because it's not close to the people, hence we have morphed into a national government. Where I say, Glenn, you are not radical enough because we're not finding the next president that will give the power out of Washington back to the states. Everybody we're talking about still wants to take control of the federal government or the national government I should say now and say what to do.

GLENN: Okay. Steve, hang on just a second. America, the reason why I took Steve's call is because I knew, my phone screener just up above here says, Glenn, you're not radical enough. So I knew he was going to get to that point. But Steve, did you know this about the federal government, how long ago? When did you start learning this?

CALLER: Couple of days ago?

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: I mean, I had a general idea, but

GLENN: Steve, did you think that I was radical enough two days ago?

CALLER: Yeah, I did.

GLENN: Yeah, okay. But now that you're learning history, you are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute! We are way behind!

CALLER: Correct.

GLENN: Steve, what you do with your history, what you do with the things that you, you know, that you learn is up to you because there shouldn't be a giant control. I'm not a leader. I'm not a guy who's out here saying, hey, vote for me or anything like that. I'm a guy who is just like you. I just happened to start earlier than two weeks ago. I'm discovering a lot of this stuff for the first time as well. And what I learned last year, what I really came when I figured it out and I knew what was happening in Washington, that's when I knew you'll never beat this. If you try to beat it through politicians and through parties. You will only beat this if you educate the American people. Because then these things become self evident. We have to restore, restore. Well, how do you restore something? I want to explain that at the top of next hour because up on one of the windows in my office is a whole thing that I wrote, when was it, in June, July? I wrote this whole thing out. I came in one day and I wanted to be able to see it all the time and I don't have a blackboard in my office. I just have windows, and there's a lot of writing on my windows. And so I took an erasable marker and I started writing down restoration. It's what led me to say we must do 8/28. And I want to share that with you at the top of the hour because you will see how simple it becomes and how everybody else is going to take you right down the same path that we keep going over and over again and nothing will change. There must be a fundamental restoration to avoid a fundamental transformation.

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?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
