Glenn responds to the tragedy in Arizona

The nation was shocked this weekend by Jared Lee Loughner’s attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that left her in critical condition and six people dead, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge. Glenn joined the rest of the country in praying for a full recovery for the wounded and for peace and comfort for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones.

Glenn said, “My family and I have been praying for the Gifford family. I didn't, I didn't know her really. As you know, I don't follow the individual politicians. And we looked for anytime that we have said anything about her, and the only time we've ever brought her up is I used her as an example of someone with some political courage. I don't agree with her and her policies, but she was someone who came out and spoke her mind against her own party at one point, and I highlighted her as someone who had courage. We pray for her and her family and all those involved.”

Glenn was celebrating his anniversary with his wife on Saturday afternoon when he heard the news of the attack on Giffords. He recalled, “I was actually at Spider-Man when I got word and my wife and I, we were having our anniversary, and I wanted to make the day about my wife because she has put up with so much this year.”

During the show, one of Glenn’s security members turned to him and alerted him that there had been an attack on a Congresswoman. “About halfway through the performance, Matt [a member of Glenn’s security team] who is with me leans over and whispers in my ear, ‘I'm sorry, sir, but I'm told that you need to see this.’ I looked at his screen and all it said was, congresswoman shot in the head. Several may be dead. That's all I knew. I didn't know if it was Michele Bachmann, Nancy Pelosi. I didn't know who it was.”

Glenn had the same immediate reaction that many have in moments of tragedy; he wanted to make sure his family was safe. “I immediately closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and said, ‘Please make sure my children are secure.’ He said, ‘Already done, sir.’ I said, ‘Can you find out who was shot? What happened?’ He said, ‘Yes, sir.’ He got up. The other member of the detail then was now outside the door of the performance and the two of them stood now at the doorway watching me while trying to find out what was going on. My wife said, ‘What's happening? On our anniversary.’ I just squeezed her hand and I said, ‘Nothing, it's all -- everything's okay. Just watch.’ She knew.

Glenn said, “We must, we must look at the examples of Gandhi and Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ who, while everyone wanted violence, they stood against it. While the easy way was violence, they stood against it. They were outspoken. They had fiery words. They turned over the tables of the temple. But they were against violence. And in the end all three of them were killed. All three of them.

They thought, those at the time, that their message would be silenced by violence. Somebody violent thought they could stop them with violence. And in the real end, all three of those men won.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

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.
