Glenn's take on National Treasure II

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. I'm glad you're here. My name is Glenn Beck and I want to talk to you about a couple of things. I want to start with something real positive. I went to see National Treasure over the weekend, the Nicholas Cage movie. I don't know if you've seen it already. I personally, I think I liked it better than the first one. I don't know. I'd have to see the first one. I really liked the first one. I mean, you know, it's an American Indiana Jones. If you are looking for anything deeper than that, you are going to the wrong movie. But that's what it is, an American adventure in Indiana Jones. And I saw the second one and I liked it as much as the first. My daughter said on the way out, she said, I think that's better than the first one, Dad, and it's been a long time since I've seen the first one but it's pretty close. I liked it. But here's what I liked about it. I liked the fact that, A, there wasn't any offensive -- there's nothing offensive in it. I didn't feel uncomfortable sitting next to my family. I didn't have to walk out and go, no, that's not exactly what was going on. I didn't have to explain who the bad guys are and who the good guys are and that the black had -- sometimes are white hats. Sometimes the bad guys are good guys. Sometimes the good guys are bad guys. I didn't have to do that. It really felt like movies the way they used to be made where a parent didn't have to explain or to back out and correct the bullcrap that had just been pumped into our child's head. Am I alone feeling that? I know I'm not.


 


 So that's one of the things I liked about it. It was just good clean fun. I liked the fact that the Nicholas Cage character, who's a good, decent guy. Again I didn't have to explain to my son who didn't see it yet because he's 3, but I could watch that movie and I won't have to explain to my son, well, no, a good guy doesn't behave that way. That guy was honorable every step of the way. Even in kidnapping the President, it was honorable, and I know that sounds strange but he didn't actually kidnap the President. And when the President -- and this is my favorite part, and I wanted to cheer and I wanted to ask you, am I alone in this feeling. If you saw national treasure, when he kidnapped the President and then went down beneath Mount Vernon into the secret tunnels and they were there and Nicholas Cage said I want to do this to -- sir, I want to do this to restore my family name and you, sir, can restore this national treasure to the United States, bring something back that hadn't been seen forever. It wasn't "And we can all get rich." It was, "And we can do good." The President said to him -- and this is my favorite part. The President said to him, why would you think I would do that? And the Nicholas Cage character said, because whether you were born to be the President, sir, or you just found yourself the President, I believe that the President is an honorable man and when push comes to shove, the President of the United States will always do the right thing. The President looked at the Nicholas Cage character and said, nobody believes in that anymore. And Nicholas Cage said, sir, everyone wants to believe.


 


 I don't think I have seen a truer line in a movie in I don't know how long. "Sir, everyone wants to believe." That's the thing that Barack Obama has captured when he talks about hope and change. He's not talking about what it is, and that's the problem. But he's showing us, he's giving us that feeling that we had with Ronald Reagan that we're not these people, that we are great people. We want to believe the President of the United States is an honorable man. We want to believe those in congress are there doing an honorable job, but nobody believes it anymore. But we want to believe. I know I do. But so many times the truth doesn't matter and so you know what? We have to get to the truth. We have to.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
