Glenn: Character matters

Glenn was back on radio today and gave his first reaction to the latest Weiner scandal in a different way than most. Instead of focusing on the salacious details of the sext messages, Glenn talked about why character matters and how people completely disregard character, instead they focus on political agendas.

Transcript of segment below

GLENN: No, but that's also ‑‑ I mean, I have been in that situation where I've had things that I didn't want to come out. I mean, you know, I lived a pretty dicey life. I was an alcoholic. Nobody in my life knew it, except for Pat. Nobody in my life knew it. I've lived that life before. And when you're in it, you think that this is going to destroy you. Stu, you were with me the day I thought I was destroying my career.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And I came out with the truth and I said, yep, this is who I am.

STU: I mean, that's ‑‑ you know, to Pat's point, that is part of probably what has helped your career and has made you a unique personality on the air. I mean, most people don't do that and ‑‑

GLENN: Yeah, but that's what we have to start convincing people, that the truth will set you free. I mean, the day ‑‑ and you know it, Stu. I looked at you and I said, write this day down. This is the day that I ended my career, right? Remember that?

STU: Mmm‑hmmm.

GLENN: Okay. So that's what happened to me in, what, '95 or 6 or 8 or whenever it was. I thought I was ending my career, but instead, the opposite is true. People are looking for ‑‑ first of all, why do you think it's going to end your career when you have Eliot Spitzer and Weiner both running?

STU: And leading at the moment at least.

GLENN: Yeah. You could ‑‑ "We've got this picture with you and hookers and one dead hooker and you blood‑splattered with the knife in your hand." "All right. So I'll just run for mayor of New York."

PAT/STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: It doesn't seem to matter to anybody anymore.

STU: I don't think there's any chance Eliot Spitzer loses in his race for city comptroller. I mean, I think there is a chance Weiner, because he's just so over‑the‑top crazy and these things keep coming out. We haven't seen a poll since this last scandal obviously. I'm sure in the next day or two we will and you'll have a better idea.

GLENN: You know what kills me? Is we are trusting ‑‑ New York is. We're not. New York is considering trusting their money, their money to a guy who was taking money and giving it to hookers. A guy who is so deceitful all the way around, and you're talking about trusting him with your cash. It's really insane.

STU: Yeah. He went about this I think in a smarter way than Weiner in that he went for ‑‑ he went for a low‑profile job that no one really understands and that no one knows any of his competition. Where Weiner, I mean, you know, the mayor of New York is ‑‑ I mean, it's one of the most important jobs in America. I mean, it really is. It's the biggest city in America. It's one of the biggest ‑‑ you put it on a scale of economies worldwide, it's one of the biggest economies for countries. So this guy, imagine Anthony Weiner, we talked about this yesterday when you were out, Glenn. It's like, imagine this guy with the stuff that he does up to now at least a minimum of 14 months after he got kicked out of congress was still having these sex chats, was having these sex chats during the time his redemptive article in People magazine came out. While it was happening, they started a week before the article came out. The guy that's that psychotic, imagine him having the power of Michael Bloomberg in this city. I mean, look what Bloomberg's done with it. Imagine if Anthony Weiner gets that power what he will do. I mean, hide your daughters. God only knows what will happen in this city if this guy gets control of it.

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.
