GLENN: This just came in from the Jerusalem Post. Glenn Beck confounded his

colleagues in the media when he brought hundreds of thousands of Americans to

the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall in Washington DC for a rally called

Restoring Honor. The speaker said nothing controversial. The crowd was

enthusiastic but not rowdy. U.S. President Barack Obama was never even mentioned

by name. In the event, the massive crowd gathered. They prayed. They celebrated

American military heroes. They listened to patriotic speeches and songs. Then

the participants picked up their garbage and went home.

So, what was it all about and why do so many people see it as a watershed

event? Although Beck called the rally Restoring Honor, it really wasn't about

restoring honor. It was more about restoring something even more important. It

was about restoring the American creed, the creed that is so engrained that it

has served as the subtext of every major political and civic speech by every

American political and civic leader since the 18th century. The American creed

has two main components. First, its core belief is that America is an

exceptional country and the American people are exceptional as a nation. Second,

it asserts that, as Abraham Lincoln said first outright, America is the last

best hope for mankind. The reason Beck's rally was a watershed event is that in

the age of Obama, millions of Americans for the first time feel the need to

reclaim what they believe is their birthright as Americans, because what

distinguishes Obama from his predecessors is that he is the first American

President who clearly rejects the American creed. This basic truth was first

brought to the public's attention during Obama's visit to Turkey last year, when

a reporter asked him, Do you subscribe, as many of your predecessors do, to the

school of American exceptionalism, that sees America as uniquely qualified to

lead the world or do you have a slightly different philosophy? Obama replied, I

believe in American exceptionalism just as I suspect the Brits believe in

British exceptionalism and Greeks believe in Greek exceptional; that is, the

President said, no, he doesn't believe in American exceptionalism. He rejects

the American creed. This is why Beck's rally was important, because it's the

building block of America's national DNA.

At the rally Beck and the crowd assembled, committed themselves to repairing

the damage that Obama is causing.

That's not quite right.

With the multitudes who congregated to the Lincoln Memorial two weeks ago,

they understood that America's greatness as a nation is entirely predicated on

its creed. If the creed is abandoned, while America may hang on for awhile, its

path to ruin will be sure. Lincoln once called America God's almost chosen

people. In saying that, he linked American history to the history of the Jews,

whereas the Jews singled ourself out as the chosen people by agreeing to accept

God's law. In Lincoln's view, Americans accepted the burdens and the gifts of a

unique national path and mission in accepting the American creed.

It goes on, but it's right. We are in a precarious place. I'm going to show

you tonight a couple of charts and a couple of facts. I'm going to show you what

the White House is now saying about the Bush tax plan. I'm going to show you

what George Soros is up to. Tomorrow and the next day, I'm going to show you the

real intent behind the kindness and compassion of those who want to save the

earth, those who just want to take care, make sure everybody has healthcare.

I'll show you who -- I'll show you the monster that hides behind, but the most

important thing that I have to share with you is that the seasons are changing

and I hope we go into spring but I fear we're going into winter, metaphorically

speaking, of course, for those bloggers who don't understand things like this.

We must reach in and be our higher self. No. We must reach in and be our highest

self. The call of the American -- the call to American -- America's greatest

generation is coming. Are we prepared to be leaders? Are we prepared to be

people that help? I know there are people, as we pointed out, there was one we

talked to on the Mall on Saturday at 10-2-10 who said to fight and kill the

capitalist class is okay. There's going to be a lot that are willing to fight,

but blessed are the peacemakers. Have you prepared to lead as a peacemaker,

because in the end they will be the ones that will win. Don't miss a second of

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
