Kim Jong Un's trusty aid lands in D.C.

Yesterday, the most senior North Korean representative to visit the U.S. in 18 years arrived in Washington. Kim Yong Chol is a “trusted adviser" to Kim Jong Un, which raises the question – how bad do you have to be to become one of Kim Jong Un's trusted advisers?

Chol is the former chief of the North Korean military intelligence agency and he's in Washington to continue discussing a potential meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. Although, we can't rule out the possibility that he's really here to shop at Costco for Kim Jong Un. You know, pallets of Diet Coke are hard to come by in Kim's communist paradise.

The last time there was such high-level contact between the U.S. and North Korea in Washington was when Jo Myong Rok met with President Clinton in 2000. That meeting was so productive that here we are 18 years later starting over from scratch.

South Korea considers Chol one of the most powerful people in North Korea. He is director of the United Front Department, which oversees relations with South Korea. He is vice chairman of the ruling Workers' Party Central Committee, and a four-star general. He also leaves the mints on Kim Jong Un's pillow and reads him bedtime stories (Goodnight, President Moon is said to be a favorite).

Chol was North Korea's official envoy to the Winter Olympics in South Korea this year, along with Kim Jong Un's sister. No word yet on whether those two are an item, but TMZ will be all over this one (TMZ at the DMZ!).

Because of Chol's aggressive past, South Korea has been shocked by his sudden willingness to talk peace.

The State Department had to grant Chol special permission to visit Washington this week because he had been blacklisted for his involvement in the 2014 cyber-attack on Sony Pictures. Because of Chol's aggressive past, South Korea has been shocked by his sudden willingness to talk peace. Anyone who's ever seen a movie knows this can only mean one thing: “It's a trap!"

It hasn't always been smooth sailing for Chol. Just two years ago he was demoted to a three-star general after dozing off during a meeting. Still, that was a lot better treatment than the last guy got who chose to catch some Z's in a meeting with Kim. He was executed by anti-aircraft gunfire. That's just how the cookie crumbles in Kim Jong Un's world… well, if they had cookies there.

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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

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.
