Marco Rubio: Is America Still An Exceptional Nation?

Senator Marco Rubio gave a great speech this morning that focused on ‘choices.’ Life is all about choices, and he shared the message that the future of our country is in our hands, the American people just have to de. America is at a crossroads and it’s time to make a choice between the option Obama is offering to the American people, that we are a nation of “haves and have-not’s” or the option of the American ideal that we are a nation of “haves and soon-to-haves”.

So, what is the conservative movement?

Senator Rubio defined it by saying, "we believe that the way prosperity is created is when people have the freedom and the opportunity to pursue their dreams.” Which he went on to compare to how small businesses get started in our country, and how they’ve been the engine of cities and towns throughout America. Rubio went on to discuss tax policy, the budget, and jobs, but where he seemed to really hit to the heart of the crowd was when he hit the topic of the American people.

“You have to be strong economically, you have to be strong militarily, but there’s one other area you have to be strong in—and that’s your people have to be strong. Because at the end of the day what makes our nation distinctive is our people. Our greatness does not derive from our government or from our laws, or from our president, or certainly not from our congress—the strength of our nation is from our people.”

This was the key message Florida Senator Marco Rubio shared with CPAC attendees this morning. Senator Rubio was one of the biggest speakers of the day, and one of the most powerful speeches so far—one that could have easily served as the closing keynote.

Senator Rubio brought up the recent attack on religious institutions, mainly the Catholic Church, that are being forced through a healthcare mandate to follow his ideas. The federal mandates are forcing our religious institutions to pay for things that their faith teaches them are wrong. Rubio stated,” you may not agree with what that religion believes, but that’s not the point. The point is that the first amendment still applies.” He went on to say that “the federal government does not have the power to make religious organizations pay for things they think is wrong.”

The senator went on to discuss how important it is that we stand up for our God given freedoms and rights. He used the example of the Nazis and other great evil’s in the world that would have won had it not been for the American people. He said the greatest example the world could have is “the American example.” What happens if that example no longer exists? “We should be grateful and thank god every night that he has placed us here in this nation at this time in history.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

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?"
