Beck: "It's a new era"

As other media networks are going crazy as they scramble for clues, listeners and viewers are wondering where they can keep seeing Glenn once his daily TV show ends. So what’s next? Don’t worry, Glenn’s has a plan and he’s been thinking about this new direction for quite a while. He’s not going to be relegated to Twitter, YouTube, or (thankfully!) MSNBC. Glenn hinted at some of these big plans on radio this morning.

“It is a new era. Yesterday, in case you didn't hear and you are tuning in for the first time today and you don't know what's going on with me, I'm sorry to waste your time with something, and if you are a fan and you have come to rely on one of my many branches of my business that being Fox, we announced yesterday that I will be transitioning at Fox,” Glenn said.

“I'm going to remain with Fox producing some specials. I don't want to get into any more detail than that. We are still going to be working together. We signed a new deal with Fox.”

“Beyond that, I am not going to be doing the 5:00 TV show for very much longer. That will be transitioned out of at their convenience. I have told them that I will work and I will honor my contract and do everything that they would ever need all the way. I am not only respectful of Fox and what it is. It is the most powerful name in news. That is not just America, that is in the globe. There is no other news organization like Fox,” Glenn said.

“I remember how hard that was to get anybody to listen when I was over at CNN, and I don't have any illusion to think that I'm anything other than the guy I was when I first walked through the door at Fox, and I know as the door hits me in the butt one day that I will be that same guy, and I know who Fox is. I know who Roger Ailes is. Roger Ailes is the guy if we don't have Roger Ailes we probably wouldn't have had Ronald Reagan as a President. So I honor his service to his country. He's a businessman. That's what he does. He's done an amazing thing for our country. I don't know honestly if we would survive as a country. I don't know if we would still be the United States of America if it wasn't for Fox News and Roger Ailes.”

“The people that have been there all of these years holding down the fort, Bill O'Reilly has become one of my good, good friends. Don Imus, a legend, has become a good friend of mine. My floor crew yesterday, I mean, the show's not over, and I'm not going away, and when I talk to the floor crew yesterday, we all kind of teared up. I mean, okay. I cried. They teared up. . They're the best people I ever worked with. They're just amazing.”

“With that being said, it's a new era.” (editor’s note: emphasis mine)

“I want to talk to you frankly here. As frankly as I can be at this time, but you are a good friend of mine. I hope that you have come to know that I try extraordinarily hard to never dishonor myself. I am a guy who is a work in progress, but I try really hard.”

“I will tell you that part of my frustration is I am a businessman. I am fiercely independent. I have done an independent radio show since I was is 13 years old. Pat knows when he worked with me 30 years ago, 20 years ago, how I am just an independent guy, and I have my own way of doing things,” Glenn said.

“I'm an independent guy, and part of the problem bringing that down to cable news is locked to a certain city. I am locked to other people's time not mine. And other people's money not mine.”

“Sometimes I want to spend more money and some of the Fox people who work on the show have been paid by me, the research that we do. Much of it, I paid for myself. If anybody thinks I got rich off Fox News, you're out of your mind. I spent a lot of money on that show because I believed what I was saying.”

And even though Glenn is leaving his news show, he doesn’t intend to leave a vacuum in the news arena.

“That's why last fall I created The Blaze. You'll notice it's not the Glenn Beck Blaze. You'll notice that I hired really competent, people that have made the industry say what the heck is he doing? I know exactly what I'm doing.”

“It is a new era and The Blaze is going to lead the way. That is only one of the ventures.”

“There will be no interruption between you and I as we start to ramp things up. If I left the show and it is up to Fox when I would leave the show, I will work for as long as they want, but when they're ready I will transition off the show.”

“If I'm not ready with the things that I'm going to launching, I will tell you that I will have the bridge and you and I will meet still every day at Glennbeck.com.”

“I won't charge you anything.”

“I will meet with you every day to make sure you see the things that you see the things that you need to see. But we're also going to be doing things, looking for different audiences, younger audiences, comedy audiences as well. Everyone who thought that they had corralled us in one little space, better look out.”

“Because we're about to saddle up and we're coming riding for you.”

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
