Why is Paul Ryan easy to defend?

On GBTV Monday night, Glenn took a look at all the criticisms being thrown at Romney's pick VP Paul Ryan and reached one very clear conclusion: Paul Ryan is an easy nominee to defend. While many are jumping to label him as "extreme" in order to scare people into voting for four more years of progressivism, the truth is that the "extreme" nature of his stance on policy is just his willingness to tell the truth about the problems facing America and the solutions.

"Ryan's is the first budget proposal that actually deals seriously with coming economic Armageddon we are facing," Glenn said. "Instead of making whimsical promises of a 'green economy' saving the day, or believing that we need to spend more to reduce the deficit - as Joe Bidenhas said - Ryan's plan actually addresses bloated government agencies and reduces spending by more than $5 trillion over 10 years."

Ryan has also come under fire as "the end of Medicare as we know it."

"Ryan's plan does not destroy Medicare. But doing nothing will destroy it. And certainly stealing $700 billion from it to spend on different Obamacare functions will too," Glenn said.

Glenn explained that while Medicare currently deems which services are covered and what price the government will pay for coverage, Ryan's plan puts control back in control of the market and the consumer by determining the total amount of money for beneficiaries to spend on their own private insurance.

When tested, the Ryan approach has actually been more successful.

"The Ryan approach actually reduced spending by nearly 10% in a single year, while still providing seniors with the same comprehensive insurance coverage," Glenn explained.

The biggest danger to Medicare is Obama, who is doing nothing to prevent the upcoming entitlement train wreck.

Glenn continued into the attacks on Ryan that he wants to take away birth control and women's rights. This comes from his support of the Sanctity of Human Rights Act, which would have defined human life as beginning at conception. There was no mention of going after birth control at all - that's all fear mongering and lies.

"Here is why they are really on the attack - because there's more to Ryan than just his budget plan. He's young, he's bright, and he can defend his positions extremely well. He's already gone toe to toe with Geithner, Biden, and Obama himself and come out shining every time," 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.
