Eco-terrorist wannabe Steven Lerner still works for SEIU

Last week, Glenn was very careful to say that Steve Lerner could not be confirmed as a current employee of SEIU. Thankfully, Wade Rathke came along to clarify that not only is Lerner still affiliated with SEIU, he’s on the payroll. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning and laid out exactly what this means. (See The Blaze story here)

“ACORN founder Wade Rathke has been busy mocking the story that broke,” Glenn said.

“And yet didn't he just say that not only is Lerner still with SEIU but he's also being paid,” Pat said.

“He says he has not been fired by SEIU.  He was placed on leave last fall to think through his contribution to the union,” Glenn said.

“ A lot of people get paid to think through,” Stu joked.

Glen joked, “ I tell you what I wouldn't be doing.  I would not be plotting the economic decline ‑‑ collapse of the United States of America.  I'd be on a beach.  I'd be like, I'm busy.  I am busy and I need another Mai Tai to think this through.  That's ‑‑ I'm very ‑‑ I'm this close.  Wade would call me:  Glenn, are you still thinking?  Yes, I'm ‑‑ man, I'm close.  You wrecked my concentration.  Now I need another month.”

“But it's not like, though, Glenn, this guy is still going to high level meetings at SEIU.  It's not like he's attending conferences among leadership,” Stu said, mocking the idea that Lerner has no influence when he is speaking at major conferences the The Left Forum.

‘This is Wade Rathke, placed on leave last fall to think through his contribution to the union but he was certainly present at the recent international executive board meeting,” Glenn said.

“The Blaze writes, ‘This is important for several reasons, not the least of which is that his ties to the plot to destroy the American economy are tied now much more closely within the ranks of the organization that time and time again President Obama has declared to be the most important to him strategically and politically. ‘”

Remember what President Obama has said about SEIU in the past? “I spent my entire adult life working with with SEIU,” the President said while campaigning. “ I didn't just suddenly discover SEIU on the campaign trail. Your agenda's been my agenda in the United States Senate.  Before debating healthcare, I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members.”

“We were so careful on SEIU to say that he was not part of SEIU when this story broke because we didn't want to smear SEIU and say that they were connected to a guy who seems to be plotting,” Glenn said. “And so we didn't want to smear the whole SEIU.  And now they are coming back to us and saying, how dare you smear him by saying he's not with us.”

“And this guy is not a nobody.  There's no way the president of the United States does not know Stephen Lerner or know of him.  There's no way.  This guy is a huge, huge power figure on the American left with the unions.  Huge.”

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.
