The most historic meeting between two adversaries since the fall of the Soviet Union just happened in Singapore. If you were following the news coverage late last night, you were witnessing history. President Trump and Kim Jong Un have now left Singapore after a meeting that has been anticipated for 65 years.

First… the bad. It absolutely turned my stomach to see the North Korean flag standing side by side with Old Glory. One flag stands for liberty, peace and opportunity, while the other embodies slavery, hostility and a cultish following. From all the pomp and circumstance yesterday and the handshakes and photographs of roundtable discussions, if you were worried that a cult leader, mass murdering communist dictator would gain legitimacy… you saw your worries materialize. That's exactly what happened. If this had been President Obama, everyone on the right would be destroying him over this. Can we concede that much? John Kerry, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes… we'd all be calling for their heads on a platter.

And I think it's important to look at this from that optic so that the current administration doesn't fall for the same mistakes that Obama did. We were right to criticize the Iran deal. The inspections were weak - they didn't include military facilities - the deal had a sunset clause, we gave them hundreds of millions of dollars in cash delivered in pallets on an Iranian tarmac, we didn't curb their ballistic missile program… I could go on and on. The deal was a disaster, but above all we assumed that Iran would pursue our interests. We thought we just scored an ally to fight ISIS. Now flash forward a few years and Iran has taken all those freshly unlocked billions and used it to sweep the entire Middle East. The deal between President Trump and Kim Jong Un can looking NOTHING like that.

In short, the Korean war was a diplomatic accident. It should have never happened. It's high time we ended it.

But now… the good. In 1950 Secretary of State Dean Acheson gave a speech to the National Press Club outlining the US defense perimeter following WW2. But during that speech, he mistakenly left off one key country: South Korea. Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong Un's grandfather, had been BEGGING Stalin to let him invade the South, but the Soviets were holding him in check. They didn't want to provoke a US response, but Acheson's speech provided an opening. It was immediately translated and rushed to Stalin's desk. Stalin called emergency meetings with both Mao and Kim. The attack order was given, and the rest is tragic history. Nearly forty thousand Americans would die in the next three years.

In short, the Korean war was a diplomatic accident. It should have never happened. It's high time we ended it. The President appears to have scored a huge opportunity here. Formally end the Korean war and denuclearize the North, but keep the legitimizing and complimenting of a mass murdering communist dictator of a slave state out of these discussions. This is his shot at making a good deal. Don't let us down.

UPDATE: Here's how the conversation went on radio. Watch the video below.

President Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore

Glenn discusses the most historic meeting between two adversaries since the fall of the Soviet Union.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
