GLENN: Two words: Thank you. What an amazing, amazing weekend. Thank you. Thank you for trusting me with your time. Thank you for trusting me with your hard earned money to be able to get across the country. Thank you for coming in, what is the media saying? Tens of thousands. We're still waiting for the real number. We have obviously you've seen them overhead shots. We have we'll show you tonight the comparisons of crowds in the past. The number is at least 500,000. The high estimate I have heard is a million. I don't personally believe that. I believe that it could be as high as 650, maybe 700, but I think the number is probably closer to 5 to 600,000.

PAT: You know it's big, though, when even MSNBC is citing the number 500,000. Scarborough said it, what, three times this morning?

GLENN: Yeah, this morning.

PAT: In the report they are spending all kinds of time on this item.

GLENN: So you know that and you know that it's big when no one will print the number. Only CBS News said it was 87,000, which is just I mean, look at the pictures.

PAT: Ridiculous.

GLENN: 87,000? Wait, how did you even come up with that? It's 23,471.

STU: It's insane. If you had 87,000 people there, then the capacity, the largest crowd you could possibly have is, what, 100,000? We've quoted how many different rallies there that have happened over the years that have been 200,000 and 300,000 and 400,000. It's insulting and whoever made that estimate literally should shutter the doors of their company, terrible.

GLENN: If you look at the photos, you go to the Restoring Honor page, the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor page and look for the photos and click on the, what is it, the five photos of just the crowd, what is incredible is when you see the aerial photo, understand that there is that the trees are blocking a lot of the crowd. So if you go one, two, three, four, five photos down, you see the beginning of what's under the trees. And what's under the trees is remarkable. Absolutely remarkable.





8/28 Photo Gallery: How many people attended 8/28? Take a look for yourself...

PAT: I mean, there were 87,000 people at 6:00 in the morning, you know? They didn't start until 10:00.

GLENN: There were thousands the night before.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: And we haven't even had a chance to talk about the revival that happened at the Kennedy Center. What happened at the Kennedy Center was possibly more remarkable than what happened at the mall on Saturday.

My fear is and I don't want to spend a lot of time talking about what the media has said because they have proven themselves to be, in my opinion they have proven themselves to be so untrustworthy and so out of touch that it's really not even worth reviewing. I mean, I know Pat is itching to review. How many times on this program did I say, media, be careful what you're saying and what you're printing because you don't know what's on the program. No one has asked me what was on the program.

PAT: Oh, no, they did. MSNBC reported right before the program what was on the program.

VOICE: You have plenty of people as you mentioned set to speak. You have Sarah Palin today about 10:40, Michele Bachmann, congressman from Minnesota also set to speak, a tea party favorite as well as Dick Armey also expected a little later today.

PAT: So how did you enjoy Michele Bachmann and Dick Armey's speech?

GLENN: I didn't know she was there. Oh, I saw her in the VIP section. I did see her down in the crowd during my speech.

STU: She was probably at some point, spoke to the person sitting next to her.

GLENN: She did speak at the rally.

PAT: She, nor Dick Armey spoke at this rally, nor were they on schedule, they were never scheduled to speak.

GLENN: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.

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.

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?
