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.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
