Sen. Rand Paul introduces 3 bills a large majority of Americans would support - but they will probably never be passed

Last week, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) quietly introduced three pieces of legislation that could seriously impact the way Congress passes laws. The bills, S.1663 - Write the Laws Act, S.1664 - One Subject at a Time Act, and S.1665 - Read the Bills Act, aim to require Congress to write clearer legislation and actually read bills before passing them.

“I don't think these have a chance of passing, and they should. They should be passed,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is the kind of fundamental transformation that America needs going in the other direction. And see if these wouldn't have 80% popularity [with the American people].”

“Too often in Congress, legislation is shoved through without hearings, amendments or debate,” Sen. Paul wrote in a press release. “Elected officials are rarely given an adequate amount of time to read the bills in full, and unlike Rep. Nancy Pelosi, I believe we must read the bills before passing them into law.”

The Read the Bills Act, for example, seeks to right the wrongs that have arisen from Congress straying “from the salutary practice of full, verbatim readings of each bill before final passage.”

“In other words, we wouldn't have passed healthcare at this point because you would not have read 3,000 pages by this time,” Glenn said. “And they would have stopped and said, ‘I don't understand that.’”

“If the Republicans had any sense at all, and they actually cared, here are proposals that would be supported by 80 or 90% of the country,” Stu said. “That would do real help in limiting government and limiting the tricks that go on in Washington… But the point is, why wouldn't this be a huge push of yours, if you're the Republicans? It's hard to come up with another answer.”

As Glenn explained, Constitutional Republicans like Sen. Paul would have no problem supporting legislation aimed at limiting the power of Congress, but progressive Republicans, who make up the core of the Republican establishment, will not be open to ceding such control.

“You want to stop the progressive movement? This is the way you do it,” Glenn said. “You were just about to say it's hard to come up with a reason for [not supporting this] – unless you're a progressive.”

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.
