Are cyborgs attacking America's trees?

Glenn used two extended metaphors on TV tonight: The Borg, cyborg villains of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and a Cottonwood tree.

Glenn focused on China today, specifically on the movement to a post-American world. What is a post-American world? One where America is no longer the world’s premiere superpower. The most likely new replacement? China.

Our leaders aren’t exactly helping. People are being told that China’s rise and America’s fall is nothing short of inevitable. On the surface, China looks great. Almost everyone has a job and only a slim percentage of people live in poverty.

But Glenn pointed out that things aren’t quite so great. Have you heard of Foxconn? Glenn talked about the manufacturing company where people live in dorm-like buildings, eat in giant cafeterias for every meal, and seem to do nothing but work in the factories all day. It’s the same routine over and over, and each and every day. Workers have even described themselves as brainwashed machines. Unsurprisingly, there have been multiple suicides at “the campus”.

Glenn compared the Chinese to “The Borg” from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Like The Borg, who were cyborgs that operated with a collective mind, the Chinese citizens are trained to operate as a collective, not as individuals. The Borg take individuals and erase their personalities when they absorb them into their collective, and Glenn believes the Chinese destroy the individuality of their citizens.

Glenn also took time to tell the story of a Cottonwood tree. The tree, which appeared to be one of the strongest around, had been around for years and years. Kids played on it, lovers kissed under it, and families camped under it. For years the gigantic tree would color the sky red and yellow when its leaves changed in the Fall. But the tree grew in a place with a high water table, so it always had easy access to water. In fact, the roots never needed to go deep as it always had everything that it needed right at the surface. Until one day, people found the tree had been uprooted. It wasn’t broken or snapped, but it had been pulled out of the ground. Why? Because the roots weren’t deep and it always had what it needed right in front of it.

How did this story relate to the rest of the show? Well, Glenn didn’t explain that and left it open to audience interpretation. (editor’s note: I tried to tie it back to the Borg analogy and I believe that if Earth were to ever be invaded by cyborgs we can easily uproot Cottonwood trees to defend ourselves. I have to emphasize that this is NOT the official explanation of Glenn, The Glenn Beck Program, anyone on the TV staff, or any reasonable person. Just a writer for glennbeck.com who shares Glenn’s love for sci-fi.) In all seriousness, the parable calls for Americans to dig deep and find what matters. Our roots have become shallow and we have lost our connection to history and creativity.

Glenn promised to focus more on how Americans can deepen their roots during the rest of the week.

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.
