Obama advisor endorses Mitt Romney?

During a confrontational interview with Chris Wallace, David Axelrod attempted to dodge questions about the Presiden't tax returns and may have inadvertently endorsed Mitt Romney over his former boss.

Chris Wallace asked Axelrod, "The president introduced his ‑‑ or released his tax returns this week. It turns out that he paid a tax rate of 20.5%, which is a lot less than the 30% he talks about. And yes, it is lower than what his secretary pays. And the question I have, if I may, David, the question I have for you is if the president feels so strongly about tax fairness, is he going to contribute money to the treasury, and they have a special department just for this-"

"Listen, Chris. First of all, the reason that his tax rate was so low was in part because 22% of his income was donated to charity, mostly to these Fisher Houses around veterans hospitals," Axelrod shot back.

But does the high percentage of donations on Obama's part signal a strong passion for charity? Possibly, but it seems suspicious when compared to previous years of giving.

As Glenn wrote in a CNN Blog not long ago, "According to his tax records, President Obama gave about 14% to charity last year, a laudable amount by any measure. However, that's twelve times the rate he gave before he arrived in the Senate in 2004 and over 35 times the rate in which he gave in 2002 when he managed to donate only 0.4% of his quarter million dollar income."

Axelrod continues, "The larger issue, the president's proposal would have him pay a higher rate of taxes in the future.  Governor Romney's proposal would have him pay a lower tax rate in the future.  So that's fundamentally different.  We're arguing for a system that is fair."

"Maybe he doesn't have the address.  Maybe he doesn't know where he should send that because if you want to pay more in taxes, you can.  They don't stop you," Glenn joked. "You can pay more. You can pay down the debt."

Of course, maybe Axelrod does believe Obama is as full of it when it comes to his economic plan as the rest of us.

During an appearance on FOX News Sunday morning, Axelrod said, "The choice in this election is between an economy that produces a growing middle class and that gives people a chance to get ahead and their kids a chance to get ahead and an economy that continues down the road we're on."

Was that a nod to Mitt Romney?

Regardless, he's absolutely right. We can't continue down the road we are on.

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.
