WATCH: Dem Congressman's scathing critique of Obama's $100 million trip

Democratic Congressman John Barrow (D-GA) made headlines over the weekend for his scathing critique of President Obama’s upcoming trip to Africa. The trip carries a whopping price tag of $100 million!

“Now, while you're all fired up… let's go now to what Yahoo is calling his triumphant return to his homeland, the president's trip to Africa,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Here's a Georgia Democrat, John Barrow, criticizing this $100 million trip.”

BARROW: Madam speaker, very soon thousands of folks in my district in Georgia and even more across the state will be furloughed as a result of the budget sequester. Studies have shown that the sequester will cost the Georgia economy approximately $107 million. Meanwhile reports circulated this week that President Obama's upcoming trip to Africa will cost the taxpayers nearly $100 million. Madam speaker, no one here questions the need for security for our commander‑in‑chief, but we do question the need for such expensive trips when so many folks across the country are being forced to cut back because Congress can't get its act together. A trip of this magnitude isn't unusual, but these are hard times. $100 million could be better used to keep folks on the job. I urge the president and everyone at the federal level to lead by example and not take the fact that Congress can't get its act together and rub that in the faces of hard working Americans. With that I yield back.

“Here's the interesting thing,” Glenn said. “You can take this and you can just say, what do you say we don't do $50 million conventions for the IRS and we save the $50 million they've just sent to ten different households as refund checks? There's $100 million there. There's $100 million there.”

“Now, I know that's nickel‑and‑dime to the, you know, to the president. He says that that's no big deal. I'm sorry, it is a big deal,” he continued. “$100 million, how many people are working their brains out that you had to take money from their check? How many of us, how many of us have given our blood, sweat and tears to make up just that $100 million? You don't find $100 million on the street corner. How many of us have worked our whole year and worked the first, what, three or four months of that year to send you money in Washington to have you abuse it like that? It's offensive and it's immoral.”

Stu was quick to point out that while he agreed with Rep. Barrow’s criticism of the trip’s price tag, his decision to tie it into the sequester is pretty unconvincing. “His tie‑in to the sequester, his point there makes it so obvious that the sequester is a BS argument,” Stu said. “If they are making trips for $100 million, we have $100 million right there from the IRS, how many more programs? You're telling me you can't cut 1 or 2% off of that budget. It's insulting to say that.”

“It’s so offensive. And when will the American people be outraged,” Glenn asked. “They have taken your money. And they are growing the size of this government that is so inept and so out of control that this is the way they're spending your money.”

WATCH Barrow’s remarks below:

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.
