Media and crowd gush during Inauguration coverage

Since the start of the New Year, Glenn has refrained from talking about the President as much as possible. But with every news outlet on the planet talking about Inauguration Day, Glenn could not totally escape the coverage of ‘that guy’.

“Now, yesterday the President gave his inauguration speech, and I'm proud to say I saw the highlights of it and that was only with a gun to my head,” Glenn said to open the radio show this morning. “That was somebody saying, ‘You have to watch this, or I pull the trigger.’ And so I watched a little bit of it – as much as I could stand.”

The President seemed to spend a lot of time talking about how it is time to act on all of the progressive policies he couldn’t enact during his first term (for fear of retribution) because he has a lot more latitude now.

“It’s time for a lot of stuff,” Pat said. “Immigration and amnesty. It’s time for climate change.”

“You know what it's time for,” Glenn continued. “Job creation and spending cuts.”

“No, not time for that,” Pat joked.

After all, social issues and environmental policies are far more important than, say, the unemployment rate and the fact that 88 million Americans are out of work.

“He's got some schools to build, which I thought we were doing last time. He's got railroads to build, which I thought we were doing last time. He's got some teachers to hire, which I thought we were going to do last time. And hire some cops, which I thought we were doing last time,” Glenn said.

Despite the nature of the ideological diatribe the President gave, his friends in the media were more than happy to instantly declare the speech inspirational or, in the case of Chris Matthews, “Licoln-esque.”

When you compare Lincoln’s inaugural address to this president’s, the similarities become abundantly clear:

“They both gave their inaugural address in English,” Glenn quipped.

Over at CNN, correspondent Jim Acosta had a “thrill going up my leg moment” when he giddily reported:

KOSTA: Obviously this is the moment that everybody is waiting for on Inauguration Day, when the President and the First Lady step out of their limo and walk down Pennsylvania avenue. I feel like I should pinch myself.

“I think I should pinch myself,” Glenn asked in disgust. “Are you not a grown man and a journalist?”

Meanwhile, Al Roker squealed like a teenage girl while trying to get Vice President Joe Biden’s attention on the parade route, and politicians fawned over celebrities like Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson.

The press also spent a lot of time referencing the respectable (but not nearly as impressive as 2009) 800,000 person crowd that has assembled in Washington D.C.

“I've never felt this way about [the President's] crowds. This is the first time I've ever seen the crowds and thought, this is the USSR. This is the way it happens in North Korea,” Glenn said. “I expected them all of a sudden to make patterns spelling out of his name.”

Stu insisted that it wasn’t so much the pomp and pageantry, but the message that was conveyed by the President in his speech that should be most alarming. Glenn still took issue with the television production of the event.

“It was just the way it was shot,” Glenn said. “It looked weird. It didn't look – it didn't look American.”

Ultimately, Glenn, Pat, and Stu managed to watch very little of the day’s events.

“[Inauguration coverage] came on the TV after the news. I had to run to the other side of the room, and get the stupid remote, and change it,” Stu said. “I just pressed the button and it landed on another local news channel that was covering it. It was torture. I just wanted it to end.”

Glenn, on the other hand, took a slightly different approach.

“That's why I have a gun,” Glenn said. “I shot my TVs out.”

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.
