GLENN: I believe that what America needs more of is poetry. I think that

PAT: Only if it's really good, though.

GLENN: Well, no, it's got to be like award winning poetry.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It has to be award winning, social justice, climate poetry.

PAT: That's what it has to be.

GLENN: Yeah. It's not I mean, if it's just any kind of poetry, well, then with

he don't need that. But award winning climate and social justice poetry, there's

nothing like it.

PAT: Preferably given by a, shall we say robust 16 year old girl. That's what I

think

GLENN: Oh, that never happens.

PAT: No.

GLENN: See, you wouldn't happen to have that on tape.

PAT: No, way. Well, wait. Do I?

PAT: Truth to power.

GLENN: Van Jones is in the audience.

(Audio playing)

VOICE: I am a resident of Stockton, California, the southern sister of

Sacramento, the baby cousin of the Bay Area. That was the standard number one

applied five years ago when I was 11, when it was 2005 and George W. Bush was

nine months into the second term of a presidency he shouldn't have even won in

the first place.

PAT: You go, girl.

GLENN: Wait, wait.

VOICE: Broken like the wings of a fallen angel. Disaster sounded like a drowning

jazz band. That was the

PAT: Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band.

GLENN: You have to hear this from the beginning. You have to really listen to

the audience. The audience

PAT: Great.

GLENN: This is in the Bay Area and Van Jones is there and he's about to award,

you know, for the greatest social justice, environmental movement kind of

poetry. Here she is talking about George Bush. She was 11. She was 11 and when

Katrina happened, and listen to the crowd. Play, can you play it again?

PAT: Yeah.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: She's standing and she's kind of, I don't know if I can do this.

PAT: She's kind of warming into it.

GLENN: Do it, do it.

PAT: Go, girl.

VOICE: I am a resident of Stockton, California, the southern sister of

Sacramento, the baby cousin of the Bay Area. That was the standard number one

applied five years ago when I was 11, when it was 2005 and George W. Bush was

nine months into the second term of a presidency he shouldn't have even won in

the first place. And Katrina wrecked Louisiana's ninth ward. The levees broken

like the wings of a fallen angel. Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band.

PAT: (Laughing). I love that! Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band.

STU: That's deep. That is deep.

PAT: Oh.

PAT: She nailed it.

GLENN: Man, she's got it on the ropes now.

PAT: She nailed it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: The whole situation with that one sentence.

GLENN: Sounded like a drowning jazz band.

STU: Ooh!

PAT: Ooh.

VOICE: That was the standard number one applied five years ago but it is still

right here acceptable today because (inaudible).

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, some.

STU: Stop!

PAT: Double helix?

STU: Stop with your double helix! It's so ridiculous.

GLENN: Do we have the, do we have the presentation of the awards from Van Jones?

PAT: I didn't stick around for that.

GLENN: Because she oh, you didn't?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Oh, she won.

PAT: Did she win?

GLENN: She won.

STU: But that was really good, though.

GLENN: But, but, but... he couldn't just pick the top three. Oh, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Oh, no.

GLENN: Oh, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No. No, we had to find the best four.

PAT: How many were there? Four?

GLENN: Yeah!

PAT: All right!

GLENN: And I want you to know you're all winners. You're all winners.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: That's right!

GLENN: No, you're not, Van. They're losers. They lost. They lost. Yeah, you walk

away you're not all winners. Otherwise you'd all get a prize. And only four of

them did, even though only three of them were supposed to. "We just couldn't, we

just, there's not enough slots because you're all winners. "

PAT: I don't think they were expecting the 16 year old to be as good as she was.

STU: Yeah, a drowning jazz band.

PAT: Drowning jazz band thing.

GLENN: That was really, really good. Now here

PAT: And then when she compared abortions to broken levees, that's when I knew

this, this woman is on it.

STU: And, you know, she's come out there and say talk about a helix, we would

all be like, whatever. But when she brought the double helix?

GLENN: She's bringing the double helix to town.

STU: Wow. She got

PAT: She brought it.

STU: She got George W. Bush there.

PAT: She brought it. She's all up in there.

GLENN: Is this video available on The Blaze?

STU: It is.

GLENN: It is? You have to watch this video.

PAT: It's funny.

GLENN: It's on TheBlaze.com. It is especially when you see her doing it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: When you see her doing it, it's a wall of sound. That's what it is. It's

just a wall of sound coming at you.

STU: I just love the self importance of it all. It's just this idea where she's

talking about the San Joaquin Valley and she's just in that, like

GLENN: We feed you!

STU: Yeah, when you're 16 years old, you believe what you think is that

important. You're convinced of it. And just the passion is admirable. It's just

passion toward nothing.

PAT: It's, I think to me it's the best poetry since...

GORE: One thin September soon, A floating continent disappears, In midnight sun,

Vapors rise as, Fever settles on an acid sea. Neptune's bones dissolve.

STU: She is better.

GORE: Snow glides from the mountain. Ice fathers floods for a season. A hard

rain comes quickly. Then dirt is parched. Kindling is placed in the forest for

the lightning’s celebration. Unknown creatures take their leave unmourned.

PAT: Kindling in a double helix.

GORE: Passion seeks heroes and friends, the bell of the city on the hill is

rung. The shepherd cries. The hour of choosing has arrived. Here are your tools.

PAT: Polar bears drown like a drowning jazz band in New Orleans when the levees

break and people get abortions.

GLENN: You know what's funny is when we released the Overton Window and we

released the ad do you have the ad by any chance? When we released the ad for

the Overton Window and it was Rudyard Kipling, they all jumped on the wagon on,

"Oh, this guy's crazy poetry. Glenn Beck's writing crazy poetry." No, it was

Rudyard Kipling.

PAT: And they were also saying it was nonsensical.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It was ridiculous, it was pathetic. Because they thought you wrote it.

STU: Right. So that's their automatic response is to criticize.

GLENN: Automatic, it's ridiculous. Did you listen to the Al Gore poem? It's just

worst.

STU: That really is one of the greatest moments of audio of all time, though.

GLENN: What is it about these elitist snobs?

PAT: Neptune downs in the levees of New Orleans.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: SUVs can't be gassed up. They're drowning in Neptune's tears.

STU: (Laughing). So awful. Such an awful failure.

GLENN: Wait just a second. The Times and everybody else just comes out and just

says, "Oh, Glenn Beck is crazy." Now, let's play these poems back to back here.

Go ahead. Here's Rudyard Kipling.

(Audio playing)

VOICE: As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of man. There are only

four things certain since social progress began. That the dog returns to his

vomit and the sow returns to her mire. And the burnt fool's bandaged finger goes

warbling back to the fire. And then after this is accomplished and the brave new

world begins, when all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his

sins, as surely as water will wet us, as surely as fire will burn, the gods of

the copybook headings with terror and slaughter return.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Whew.

GLENN: Okay? And if you know the whole poem, it's unbelievable. Now, here's the

whole poem from Al Gore.

GORE: One thin September soon, A floating continent disappears, In midnight sun,

Vapors rise as fever settles on an acid sea.

GLENN: Neptune's bones dissolve. Now wait. Now, go to the condom chick.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: I'm more entertained by the audience than by her.

PAT: They are. They're good.

GLENN: Yeah! Bring it!

STU: She's better than Gore, though. Even at 16. I think.

VOICE: I am a resident of Stockton, California. The southern sister of

Sacramento, the baby cousin of the Bay Area. That was the standard number one

required five years ago when I was 11. When it was 2005 and George W. Bush was

nine months into the second term of a presidency he shouldn't have even won in

the first place.

PAT: Go!

VOICE: And Katrina wrecked Louisiana's ninth ward. The levees broken like the

wings of a fallen angel. Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band. That was

the

GLENN: Stop.

STU: That is awesome.

GLENN: With terror and slaughter returned. (Laughing). This time the gods of the

copybook headings, they are only going to dissolve Neptune's bones.



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?

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?
