To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? Rand Paul grilled by host

Rand Paul appeared on CNBC this week and was attacked for his stance that vaccinating children should be the parents decision and not mandated by government. The host just could not understand why Senator Paul wouldn’t want the government to have full mandate on what’s injected into our bodies and what's not.

CNBC's Kelly Evans asked Sen. Paul, "Did you really just say to Laura Ingraham that you think most vaccines in this country should be, quote, voluntary?"

Rand didn't back down. He said, "I guess being for freedom would be really unusual...I guess I don’t understand the point of why that would be controversial."

Evans continued to grill him over the issue, and he emphasized his belief that while vaccines are one of the greatest medical breakthroughs in history, they've also historically been voluntary.

"I think they’re a good thing but I think the parent should have some input. The state doesn’t own your children - parents own the children and it is an issue of freedom," he said.

As the interview wound down, Sen. Paul criticized Evans for her lack of objectivity. "I think this is what’s bad about TV sometimes so, frankly, I think, if we do this again, you need to try to start out with a little more objectivity going into the interview." he said.

"Holy cow. I love him," Glenn said after watching the interview

"I think [Rand Paul's] right. I think vaccines are voluntary. And everything in life is a choice. With that being said, then society has a choice and they can say, well, you're not going to -- your kids won't go to school. And businesses have the choice to say, if you don't get a vaccine, you can't come to work in my office or, you know, we don't want to serve you. So everybody has a choice. But you can't take away people's choice to augment or change their body," Glenn said.

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.
