Congressman attacks conservatives for opposing regulation on internet

Did you hear that conservatives are trying to shut down the Internet? And they want to destroy the environment? It’s news to Glenn and crew too, but that didn’t stop Congressman Markey from going after the GOP in a new, slightly unhinged, attack.

You can watch the video (courtesy of The Blaze) below:

Markey said, “On Wednesday this week they brought to the House floor a bill to repeal the Environmental Protection Agency's authority to regulate greenhouse gases. Then yesterday they passed a resolution to repeal the FCC's ability to ensure the openness of the Internet.”

“Does anybody have a problem with the openness of the Internet? You can get on the Internet and pretty much write anything,” Glenn said.

“Their bill will do exactly what they say the GOP is trying to do. The GOP is trying to stop them from radically altering the Internet,” Pat said.

Stu pointed out the ridiculousness of their argument, as progressives are trying to add FCC regulation to the Internet, which is inherently free already. “When you add regulation to it, you can't make it more free. It was already free,” he said.

Glenn said, “Anybody who uses the Internet, really uses the Internet, you know how free it is. YouTube, what is that? You can go and post your own news story. You can put it anywhere and if you have done a good enough job, it will catch on.”

Markey also said, “So, as time ticked down on Friday afternoon the Republicans in Congress were trying to shut down the Internet and the Federal Government simultaneously. They didn't shut down the government and we're about to make sure that they don't shut down the Internet, either. We are going to organize, mobilize, and get energized to fend off these assaults.”

“What a ridiculous idea. So, if we don't set a new set of regulations, the Internet will stop and you're talking about companies that want to make money off of the Internet. Why would they shut down the Internet? It would just shut down, you know, a third, a quarter of their business? Why would they do that?” Stu asked.

“It's so amazing, though, if you boil down this argument … if you boil down Markey's argument, what he's saying is the government doesn't have enough power. Who believes that in America? Who sits back and thinks, gosh, if the government had only more power to control our actions?”

“And this is a guy, by the way, that is the mental muscle behind the global warming bill they're trying to pass,” Glenn said.

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.
