GLENN: Speaking of Michelle Obama, Michelle Obama came down from the second

story where she was eating pea soup for lunch and she came down and she wants

to, I don't know, put carrots in front of us. She's -- she gave a statement

about how we cannot leave it up to the parents because childhood obesity isn't

just a public health threat, it's not an economic threat. It's a national

security threat as well. (Sniffing).

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Here she is.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Let's be clear. These folks don't just support this bill as

leaders and as professionals but as parents as well. And we know that ensuring

that kids eat right and stay active is ultimately the responsibility of parents

more than anyone else. And everywhere I go, fortunately I meet parents who are

working very hard to make sure that their kids are healthy, they are doing

things like cutting down on desserts and trying to increase fruits and

vegetables. They are trying to switch their kids to kind of healthy habits that

will stay with them for a lifetime.

PAT: Making progress, mmm-hmmm.

MICHELLE OBAMA: But when our kids spend so much of their time each day in school

and when many kids get up to half their daily calories from school meals.

GLENN: Oh, my.

MICHELLE OBAMA: It's clear that we as a nation have a responsibility to meet as

well.

GLENN: We do.

MICHELLE OBAMA: We can't just leave it up to the parents.



Michelle Obama: Child Obesity a ‘National Security Threat’

GLENN: We can't just leave it up to the parents.

PAT: We can't just leave it up to the parents. You know, I love that. She's done

that several times now. Yes, it's the parents' responsibility. I'm sorry, we

have to do this anyway. Yes, it's the parents' responsibility, but we can't

leave it up to the parents.

STU: We know the government, when we try to do stuff through the government, it

doesn't work.

PAT: It doesn't work. There's no evidence that it works. And yet we're doing it

anyway.

STU: We're doing it anyway.

PAT: I -- what? And she's -- how many times has she done this? We've got several

of those sound bites.

GLENN: Why do you hate children? Why do you hate children so much?

PAT: I think because I have six of them and they irritate me in my own home.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah, it's spread out by --

GLENN: See, we cannot leave Pat.

STU: No.

GLENN: Can he want leave the parenting of Pat's children up to Pat.

PAT: No, you can't.

GLENN: It's not going to end well.

PAT: No.

STU: He will probably serve his kids Christmas cookies.

PAT: Look at how fat my kids are. Look at the obesity.

GLENN: Okay, they're not fat. You are but they're not.

PAT: Right, exactly.

GLENN: Because you know why? Because you -- the only thing left in the

refrigerator after you're done are the carrots.

PAT: The crumb. The crumb that's even too small for a mouse.

GLENN: Here, have a carrot, kid.

 

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.
