Ron Paul on MSNBC: Homeschooling is a better alternative

This week alone, Glenn has shared two disturbing cases of the Bill of Rights literally being re-written in our children’s textbooks. An AP U.S. history textbook used in Denton, Texas defined the Second Amendment as “The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.” Meanwhile, students in Simpsonville, South Carolina were using a textbook that combined the Second and Third Amendments into one singular sentence: “The Second and Third Amendments — grant citizens the right to bear arms as members of a militia of citizen-soldiers and prevent the government from housing troops in private homes in peacetime.”

Cases like those, combined with ongoing concerns about the new Common Core standards, have lead many to question the state of education in America. Glenn has been vocal about his support and experience with homeschooling, and now former Senator Ron Paul has been speaking out about the benefits of homeschool.

“Ron Paul has a new mission in life. And amen, amen, amen,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It is to get 20 or 25 percent of the population to be homeschooled. And you would not believe the response of the people on MSNBC in this interview. Listen to this interview with Ron Paul.”

RON PAUL: I want people to be able to home school their children. Not everybody is, this is designed to pick out the leaders who want to, and maybe 20 percent might be interested in doing this. But they would at least see, these would be leaders who then would be talking about running for Congress and understand why the Federal Reserve is a problem today. We have been conditioned, in all our schools, that it's good to have a very, very robust foreign policy, to be involved in all these countries, we've been taught the Federal Reserve is sacred except for the last few years people are questioning the Federal Reserve. We've been taught deficits are good. Everyone has been taught one of our greatest presidents was Woodrow Wilson, but if you're liberal or conservative, if you look at Woodrow Wilson, he was, he violently abused our civil liberties. He was the one that told us we had to march around the world. He was the one that changed our foreign policy. And I'd like to show that some of our presidents, the only great president have been warmongers and maybe people who argued for negotiations might be a better president. So it will be a different approach. But it will be up front. It will be the freedom philosophy. It will be based on individual freedom and not a collectivist approach.

“Can you imagine the perplexing expressions on the faces of the people at MSMBC right now,” Pat asked.

There are definitely some issues with Paul’s reasoning when it comes to the curriculum he proposes, but Glenn sees an even greater problem.

“It's not a chance this is going to happen. Only because once this kind of thinking starts to take real root, and it already is, the federal government has got to shut homeschoolers down,” Glenn explained. “They have to because you will have too many free thinkers out there.”

“Yeah, there's other problems with this though, too, Glenn,” Pat said. “Obviously. You're ignoring them.”

“I know,” Glenn said. “MSNBC is about to get to them. Thank goodness they're there.

COMMENTATOR: 20 percent of children being homeschooled that's going to mean a vast drop in the number of women in the work force because it's largely women who are doing the homeschooling. A lot of women can't afford to give up their jobs. A lot of families can't afford that and do we actually wants to be encouraging women not to take part of the work force because we know how valuable that diversity is. I'm just, I'm concerned about advocating homeschooling on this level when women are having such a hard time already, staying in the work force.

RON PAUL: Of course those are the problems created by what I'm trying to correct because they have to be in the work force and they have to work and not take care of kids because of the system that we have, because it's survival for them. So you are, you're absolutely right, there isn't a choice.

“Stop for a second,” Glenn said. “Only MSNBC could come up with something this insane. So excuse me. We would be hurting women because we would be encouraging them to stay home with their kids? Because of the diversity in the work place, that's more important than having mom at home, teaching her own children.?

“Oh, diversity in the workplace is way more important than that,” Pat quipped. “Ron's wrong about that – they're not absolutely right. Like Stu said, there's many women already – more than 20 percent already at home and could do this. Do they want to? I don't know. I don't know. That's up to them.

“You have to want to do it,” Glenn reiterated.

“You really do. Not everybody is equipped to do that and I get that fully,” Pat concluded. “But it would be a good thing for your kids and for America. I mean, whether it's the man or the woman, one parent in the home, bringing up the kids, would be a good thing. Hey, I don't know how we've lost sight of that.”

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.
