GLENN: Let me just play a little bit of audio for you and see if you can tell

what's missing.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was

home to many peoples. To British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican...


PRESIDENT OBAMA: To countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land. We

didn't always get along, but over the centuries what eventually bound us

together, what made us all Americans was not a matter of blood, it wasn't a

matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold

so dear. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal,

endowed with certain inalienable rights, life and liberty and the pursuit of


GLENN: Stop.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's what makes us unique.

GLENN: No, no, there's something missing here. What was missing? And you notice

a very long pause before he said it. So I believe he was, "Do I edit, do I edit,

do I edit?"

STU: You don't think it was he was trying to remember the words?

GLENN: No. He's got 1400 TelePrompTers! Really?

STU: Did he have a TelePrompTer at this ?

PAT: He always has a TelePrompTer.

GLENN: He has a TelePrompTer in the bathroom! Have you ever seen him without a


PAT: He doesn't address 6 year olds without a TelePrompTer.

GLENN: Have TelePrompTer, will travel.

PAT: Welcome to the kindergarten class of... 2010.

GLENN: I mean, come on.

STU: True, but I just haven't confirmed it for this.

GLENN: No, I haven't confirmed it, either, but I would be wildly surprised. I'm

surprised that he doesn't have, like, TelePrompTers on leashes where he walks

and, you know, it's like those polls coming out of his belt and they go to the

polls of the TelePrompTer and the TelePrompTers are on little wheels and so

every time he walks, you hear... (making squeaking sounds.). I mean, come on.

The part that he's missing there is that all men are created equal and endowed

by their creator with certain inalienable rights.

Now, I want you to know church is on Sunday; God is the rest of the week. He

forgot God on Friday. However, I believe he may be in Day 2 of the 40 day and 40

night challenge. He may have been impacted by in fact, I'm going to guarantee

that he has been impacted by 8/28. Now, I don't know if that means that's why

he's taking the 40 day and 40 night challenge or if he is, but he has decided

that he's got to go to church. And so the president went to church with his

family yesterday and I think that's grand.

PAT: You think it's grand?


PAT: Yeah. You don't because I mean, you don't use that word a lot.


PAT: So I know when you use it, it stands out.

GLENN: It stands out.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. I think it's grand.

PAT: It's grand?

GLENN: I think it is, don't you?

PAT: I think it's marvelous, which is a word I don't use all that often.

GLENN: What's another word that you would use all the time that might fit what

you're really feeling?

PAT: I don't like to get cliche when I'm describing the president, you know,

going to church.

GLENN: No, I understand that. I understand that. So Stu, do you have a word?

STU: Convenient? It's very close to the White House. It's convenient.

GLENN: Oh, yes.

PAT: That's a good word.

STU: Convenient.

GLENN: That's a very good word. For a minute there I thought you were

STU: No.

GLENN: saying it was politically convenient.

STU: No, no, it's close to the White House. It's easy to get to.

GLENN: It is easy to get to. I think you're right. I think you're right. It is

convenient. That's a better word than grand or, what was yours?

PAT: Marvelous.

GLENN: Yes. Convenient.

STU: Convenient.

GLENN: Convenient is a good word. So I think, America, that just shows how

freaked out of their mind they really are. Now, my staff just fell

PAT: Your staff just fell.

STU: Did your staff fell?

PAT: Did you hear the giant bump? That was the staff. Somebody made him a Moses

walking staff and he brought it into the studio.

GLENN: This is really sweet.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
