Administration grants executive privilege to Eric Holder

The investigation into what role Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department played in Fast and Furious continues to rage on. Representative Darrell Issa has threatened to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for not turning over the necessary documents, but Holder has continued to defy orders.

Never one to shy away from controversy – or create some of his own – President Obama has now come out and claimed ‘executive privilege’ on Fast and Furious. It seems like a weak moment for the administration, who to some degree is admitting they are in trouble.

“Here's my question. My question is are you going to investigate this and will you put people in jail that deserve to be in jail no matter how high they go up after they leave office,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “It looks like President Obama now is claiming executive privilege on Fast and Furious. They're in trouble and they know it.”

Holder and the Justice Department have been a doing a song and dance for months – offering to comply one day and missing deadlines the next.

“They said that they, ‘Oh, we'll turn over all the documents. We have nothing to hide.’ All of a sudden, ‘Umm... executive privilege.’ They know they're in trouble,” Glenn said. “This is the most corrupt administration I think probably of all time.”

While Glenn did not accuse President Obama of any wrong doing in relation to the Fast and Furious investigation, he did take a hard stance on how to prosecute government officials who break the law.

“And I wonder – because we set a precedent with Nixon, and I'm not saying that the president is involved in anything and, you know, should go to jail,” Glenn said. “If you're breaking the law and you're involved in corruption, no man is above. I think, you know, people say, ‘You can't put the president of the United States in prison.’ Oh, I think that's the best place for him.”

Glenn believes such action would send a message to politicians and to the country as a whole that this type of behavior will not be tolerated. “I think that sends a message not only to, you know, our own politicians, ‘It doesn't matter how high you've gotten. You can still go to jail,’ but it also sends a message to the rest of the world and to our kids.”

Perhaps the best news to come out of this whole ordeal is that it seems the American people are finally putting their foot down.

“This administration is on fire. It is on fire,” Glenn concluded. “The good news is I think America's waking up to it.”

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.
