Mike Slater discusses recall effort against San Diego Mayor under slew of sexual harassment allegations

Glenn's in San Diego today and happened to swing by City Hall. Above the door it reads, "Good government demands the intelligent interest of every citizen." To get a better Mayor it's going to take an informed and active electorate. Consider Bob Filner San Diego's wakeup call. Hopefully they take it.

Glenn's in San Diego today, one of the very, VERY few conservative places in California and, unfortunately, home of disgraced Mayor Bob Filner.

Filner, who has recently undergone a slew of sexual harassment allegations, announced he that despite the claims of kissing, groping, and assaulting women in the workplace, he will not be resigning from office.

TheBlaze.com reports,

"Filner apologized to voters, his staff and the women he allegedly harassed, but added: “Words alone are not enough. I am responsible for my conduct. And I must take responsibly for my conduct.”

The allegations resulted in widespread calls for him to resign, plunging the nation’s eighth-largest city into political turmoil.

When the allegations surfaced, Filner apologized for disrespecting women and said he needed help. But soon after, he said he was innocent of sexual harassment and resisted calls to leave office.

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee called on Filner to resign as did leaders of the San Diego Democratic party.

The former congressman was San Diego’s first Democratic mayor in 20 years."

Not a good start for San Diego's first Democrat mayor in 20 years. Hopefully the voters won't make the same mistake again. But as horrible as Filner already sounds from the reports, he's worse. And the Democrats holding him up right now aren't much better.

It's rare for conservatives to side with Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, but when it comes to this dirtbag, they do. The DNC Chairwoman called for Filner to step down, calling his behavior "reprehensible and indefensible".

Filner is less than eight months into his four-year-term, has refused to discuss the allegations and doesn't seem to see the need to step down. Instead, he will undergo therapy.

That's not sitting well with many in San Diego, who are working to gather signatures to recall the mayor. Among those leading the charge is radio personality and friend of TheBlaze, KFMB's Mike Slater. Mike joined Glenn on air in San Diego this morning to discuss not only the effort to recall Filner, but to explain to the national radio audience just how bad this guy really is.

"For 20 years he was a Congressman and was able to get away with this stuff," Slater explained. "No one paid attention to him.  He's been mayor eight months and acquisitions from my high-profile women at a dean, a -- top-notch women saying he would grab around their necks, pull them closer and try to, quote, stick his tongue down their throat. You would work better without your panties on at work tomorrow. Awful stuff."

"Did anyone file assault charges?" Glenn asked.

"Not until now," Slater answered. "We have been approaching that question a lot of different ways and we talked to a lot of women. 'If you have ever been assaulted, why didn't you come forward?' And a lot of genuine reasons. Worried for their jobs or didn't want to be branded as a "woman that Bob Filner assaulted". That's not what they wanted to be known as. And this is all about a lust for power. Eliot Spitzer, Weiner, those are lusts for sexual gratification. Bob Filner has a lust for power. Every woman he did this to, he had a position of strength over them, whether they wanted an endorsement from him or they wanted some come bane contribution organization whatever."

"A sick pig like that at the head of that city that's unbelievable," Pat interjected.

Two make matters worse, there are two women on the city council who have claimed to stand for women's rights their entire careers standing by Filner's side.

"Is there a chance this guy — this is the death of shame. We thought we lost it in the '90s.  You are seeing it in New York, which is you kind of expected; but you are seeing in San Diego, California. This is a — one of the only conservative places in California," Glenn explained.

"It's about an eight-month long recall effort to recall this man and we'll send an a message to the entire country," Slater said. "We're going to do better than this."

"Democrats are standing by him because of the progressive agenda," Glenn added. "It is a power of the collective over the individual."

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.
