Who’s your daddy, NYC? Bloomberg goes after earbuds

Just when you thought New York City’s nanny state could not get any more ridiculous, Mayor (or is it emperor?) Michael Bloomberg has announced a new public health initiative (a.k.a. a way to further strip New Yorkers of their freedoms). This time, he is going after your headphones.

“Now we didn't get to the new thing that the Mayor McFascist wants to put together for you,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I think it's really good. He's concerned about your hearing. And he says the ear buds that you might wear now are too loud.”

The New York Post reported “health officials are planning a social-media campaign to warn young people about the risk of losing their hearing from listening to music at high volume on personal MP3 players.” The program will cost upwards of $250,000 and “will target teens and young adults… using social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.”

Nancy Clark, assistant commissioner of environmental-disease prevention at the New York City Health Department, told the Post, “With public and private support, a public-education campaign is being developed to raise awareness about safe use of personal music players… and risks of loud and long listening.”

He's going to spend a lot of taxpayer money,” Glenn said. “Sure you're in Iowa or Washington state saying, ‘that's why I don't live in New York.’ No, your money is going to New York City so Bloomberg can put together a nice little package to save the ears of New Yorkers because apparently they're too stupid to turn down the volume themselves.”

Under the guise of improving the quality-of-life in New York City, Nanny Bloomberg has banned salt, trans-fats, smoking, bottle-feeding infants, guns, soda, and Styrofoam, so naturally it is time to regulate what you listen to and how you listen to it.

“He's going to try first to educate,” Glenn said. “But if that doesn't work, which I don’t know, [New Yorkers] are too stupid to figure out the coffee and the soda with the pizza, so do you think they will figure the volume out? He's going to have to be regulating the ear buds – what can be sold, and what should be worn, and how loud things can get.”

“If you're against that, it's most likely it's just because you're an extremist,” Glenn concluded, “because [Bloomberg] knows better.”

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.
