Glenn's son was baptized over the weekend

It was quite an eye opening experience for Glenn this weekend as he had the opportunity to baptize his son Raphe. As he stood there in the water with his son, Glenn was overcome with a sense of purpose and clarity on what our biggest job as parents truly is.

"My son got baptized this weekend. In my faith we don't do infant baptism. We do it at 8 years old, the age of accountability when you can decide, you know. I don't believe in original sin, and my son now knows if he's stealing something, he now knows he's stealing. Now he's being held accountable. And so at 8 years old we get baptized and so he did that, and I had a chance to baptize him myself. And standing there in the water with your son at 8 years old gives you a couple of things: One, what a huge responsibility it is to be a parent and, jeez, have I taught him anything of value. Have I ‑‑ I mean, he's there, but this is his first step. Does he even really understand it? And then the second thing that crosses your mind is how fast time is going."

"I was talking to my sister yesterday and one of her friends who is a friend of mine, a childhood friend of mine, passed away. She was, what, 52? And we're getting to the point, has anybody else gotten to the point in their life yet where you're the next generation now? You know how you ‑‑ remember when you were a kid, you had the uncles who were like, 'Oh, and I got bad gas and I got ‑‑ I had to have my liver removed and... and Ethel fried it up with some onions and we ate it and it was delicious but then it gave me some bad gas.' And you always had those talks with the old people who were always losing teeth or something was going on with them. They were always having organs removed or exploratory surgery and then they would just die. And ‑‑ but you always had generations in between you. Now I'm to the point to where it's my parents and then I'm the one that, with the bad gas. We're the ones!"

"Time is going so fast. And for me at least, it ties in to the election because I don't think I'm alone. I think some of us feel like we've wasted four years. We did all these things and we wasted four years, and more of our brothers and sisters out on the streets, they still don't get it and they don't care."

"So what are we going to do? Waste another four years? I want to talk to you about that tonight if that's the way you feel because that's the way I feel, and I want to talk to you about it tonight because I think I have some perspective on it."

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
