During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the proposed merger of Comcast and Time Warner Cable on Thursday, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) suggested partisan politics might explain why Comcast does not carry TheBlaze. If the multi-billion dollar merger is approved, Comcast will control more than half of all U.S. cable subscribers.

“They had quite a conversation about TheBlaze on Capitol Hill. There were hearings about the Comcast merger, and there were a few voices that spoke out – [Blake] Farenthold, (R-TX), Tom Marino (R-PA), Mike Lee (R-UT), Louie Gohmert (R-TX),” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And Louie Gohmert was the one – I'm in the middle of a meeting and someone passes their phone over to me to see, and I read this transcript and couldn't believe it.”

Watch Gohmert’s back-and-forth with Comcast Executive Vice President David Cohen below:

Lynne Costantini, president of business development at TheBlaze, released a statement after the hearings reaffirming the assertions Gohmert made.

TheBlaze “has actively sought these opportunities consistent with Congressman Gohmert’s remarks,” Costantini said. “Many independent networks like TheBlaze seek to gain additional distribution by buying or partnering with existing networks that have broader distribution and subsequently rebranding those networks to include content with more viewership and appeal.”

On radio this morning, Glenn thanked the audience for their dedication and consistent support over the last several years as TheBlaze has continued to grow.

“We bring this to your attention because you are involved in helping us get TheBlaze all across the country. I want you to rely on the power of God and not the power of man and know that there are no hiding spaces in the world. Do things with exactness,” Glenn said. “In our conversations with certain cable companies, they have been more than arrogant… It's nice to see that there are some people in Congress who have not been purchased. We're grateful that they're not just going after this particular case, but we know that these guys also go for the truth on everybody.”

Even though Glenn believes things will work out the way they are supposed to, this Comcast/Time Warner Cable merger has caused many sleepless nights for Glenn and his staff. As Glenn explained, this merger should cause sleepless nights for anyone who believes in the freedom of opinion.

“Make no mistake: A Comcast/Time Warner merger is really bad for your voice… I can tell you this: A man can go start his own network and be successful,” Glenn said. “However, what's caused me sleepless nights is [the cable companies] still our gatekeepers, and I can't get on to your television box.”

Through persistent phone calls and emails, TheBlaze audience has had an enormous impact in a very short period of time. And Glenn explained that much more can still be done, but he also believes that government regulation is strangling the industry.

“We want you to know that you can make a difference. You can accomplish the things that you want to accomplish. But… get the government out of the cable industry,” Glenn said. “And you know why I say that? Because then I can start my own cable company – one that will not have all of these huge packages. We'll let you choose which networks you want. We'll completely redesign it, and we'll redesign it for a contemporary world where you have ultimate choice.”

“So government, get the hell out of the way and we'll give people choice,” he concluded. “But that's not in the cards today. What's in the cards today is more control from a single owner. Not more control for you but control for them.”

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.
