Which Super Bowl winner missed the birth of his child to play in a football game?

Superstar Quarterback Joe Flacco missed the birth of his second child yesterday in order to play for the Ravens against the Browns in the NFL's second week. Flacco's wife Dana gave birth to a baby boy about an hour before kick-off. On radio this morning, the guys debated whether or not a football game was a valid excuse to miss such an important life event.

"So I want to ask ya, how many of us would be dead, dead if we were Joe Flacco today?" Glenn asked on radio this morning.

Flacco was warming up when he got a phone call from his wife telling him they had a new baby boy.

"I think it would be over.  I really think it would be over.  You can't miss a birth," Pat said.

Glenn said that he was faced with a similar situation when his daughter Cheyenne was born. Her due date was scheduled to be just a few days before the launch of his TV show on CNN. Rather than risk Glenn missing the birth, Tania ended up inducing a few days early so Glenn could be by her side.

"Still she was upset at me a little bit," Glenn said. "That's the date the network picked to launch the show."

Glenn and Pat took the opportunity to mock Stu for not going to Israel for Restoring Courage and using the excuse of his unborn child, even though Stu still had a few weeks before his son was due.

"Let's just put this into perspective.  If if he were, like, the quarterback and  let's say that they were going to not just a regular game but it was like, they were going to play some special game.  They only played one a year, like Super Bowl but it was played in someplace like in Israel," Glenn joked.

"I'm glad you're pointing this out because this is an interesting flip‑flop for you guys.  I was supposed to go to Israel for your little cute event," Stu said.  "Let's put me, our experiences as described up against each other. When my wife had a baby, I took a week off to help care for the baby and her.  You rescheduled your wife's birth so you could do a television show.  Let's see which one America stands with. "

Ultimately, Stu ended up defending Flacco.

"Look, you don't schedule a birth for CNN Headline News.  However, for the National Football League, you absolutely do," Stu said.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
