GLENN: I want to play one of the worst campaign ads I think I've ever, ever heard. If you were like me and thought Shirley Sherrod deserved no should demand an apology, listen to this campaign ad.

GRAYSON: I'm congressman Alan Grayson and I approved this message.

VOICE: Religious fanatics try to take away our freedom in Afghanistan, in Iran, and right here in Central Florida.

WEBSTER: Wives submit yourselves to your own husbands.

VOICE: Daniel Webster wants to impose his radical fundamentalism on us.

WEBSTER: She should submit to me. That's in the Bible.

VOICE: Webster tried to deny battered women medical care and the right to divorce their abusers.

WEBSTER: Submit to me.

VOICE: He wants to force raped women to bear the child.

WEBSTER: Submit to me.

VOICE: Taliban Dan Webster, hands off our bodies and our laws.

PAT: Whew.

GLENN: That is an incredible ad. You have a candidate saying women must submit to their husbands, submit to me. That's an incredible statement. Accurate. It is in the Bible, but is that, that the way people live their lives? Is that their understanding of that phrase? Is that this guy's understanding of this phrase? That's incredible. Taliban Dan indeed. Unless you care to look at the entire statement. Now, this isn't lost videotape. This isn't videotape that, oh, well, that was an hour later in the speech. Let's just listen to what he said in context.

WEBSTER: A journal, second? Find a verse. I have a verse for my wife. I have verses for my wife: Don't pick the ones that say she should submit to me. That's in the Bible, but pick the ones that you're supposed to do.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Do you understand what just happened? Don't pick the verses like she must submit to me. It's in the Bible, but pick the ones you're supposed to do. Do you hear that?


TheBlaze: Grayson is more awful than we thought

STU: Yeah. And, you know, the audio gets cut off a little bit there, but he goes on to say, you know, instead pick the ones like love your wife even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it, as opposed to wives submit to your own husbands. And that's where he picks it. As opposed he takes out, as opposed to and just plays wives submits to their own husbands. That's incredible.

PAT: This attack ad, I don't know if we've mentioned yet, is from Alan Grayson.

GLENN: Alan Grayson. I don't

PAT: One of the most despicable people.

GLENN: I don't know how Alan Grayson wins.

PAT: How he lives with himself. I don't know how he lives and sleeps at night.

STU: If your wife or daughter started dating a guy like this, you would cry. You would cry yourself to sleep at night. He's a horrible person, horrible. I mean, that's not just a bad politician. That's horrible.

GLENN: No, no, I don't think that I've ever seen anybody in congress as bad as Alan Grayson, I mean as a person.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, I don't know him. I just know his words, and there's they're not we're not taking we're not taking him out of context. We're looking at his words and the things that he has said and done, and there is no limit to this man. There is no floor

STU: No.

GLENN: to this man. There's no place that he is unwilling to go.

PAT: And it's interesting because even when it was brought up that, hey, you took that way out of context and made it and they even edited the part where he's talking about it's in the Bible a little bit to make it fit better into the statement, to make it sound like that's what he was saying. When that was brought up to him, they still defended the ad.

STU: Yeah. It's not

PAT: They didn't back off from it one iota.

STU: It's not like he was saying we didn't have this one video, that's not all he said. They are standing by that that's okay to do.

PAT: Do you have their comment, the comment from the campaign?

STU: Yeah. Give me one second. I'll pull it up here.

PAT: It is unbelievable. They're standing by, taking him out of context. And is this not what everybody was screaming, the Democrats were screaming during the Jeremiah Wright period? "You're taking him out of context! Sound bites, it's a sound bite world!" When you take somebody out of context, that means that you change the meaning of what they're trying to say. That was never done to Jeremiah Wright. That's absolutely what was done here with Daniel Webster.

STU: Yeah. Here's the campaign spokesman for Grayson: The Taliban is an extremist government regime that forced its crazy rightwing views on the populous it governs. If elected Dan Webster would force his crazy rights extreme crazy rightwing views on Central Florida.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So here's the thing, Central Florida.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: You just have to ask yourself this one thing: We can disagree on policies. We can. You can be for healthcare, you can you know, you can be for bigger government, but is there any shame? Is there anything? Do you just accept any character because your side will win? You know, I who was it that said last week when they were talking about, you know, the guy in Delaware, that he should have won because, well, the Republicans would have definitely won in Delaware? Who was it that said, well, when? Or what? Win without values and character and the integrity and the principles that we all uphold or strive for, what is it what is that win worth? This is the kind of thing that Americans need to be striving for now. We can disagree, but we have to be able to tell the truth. When America said they wanted hope and change, I wanted hope and change, too, from the Bush administration. I didn't like the way the Bush administration was handling things. We can unite on that, but you can't have somebody like Alan Grayson in office. It's it's reprehensible. It really is. Do we have that little respect for our republic? Do we really have that little respect for the congress? I mean, I know congress is unpopular, but why? Because of this! Are we going to restore it or not? Not talking about policies. Just talking about character. Does character matter? The answer is yes.

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.
