Trump's New Conservative-free, Free Child-care Policy

Finally, a true conservative platform, something Republicans can hang their hats on: A government program to guarantee paid leave! And you thought this day would never come.

"If Barack Obama would have proposed this, we all, of course, would have been against that. But today, for some unknown reason, I am so in love with this. I think it might actually save us money. It might actually be the thing that we need to turn this country around. It's about time we have paid medical leave! It's about time!" Glenn said, kicking off his radio program Wednesday morning.

Glenn hasn't been this excited since the 1990s.

Here's a bit of what Ivanka said yesterday about this great, conservative government program:

My father has created a plan that is designed to bring relief and to provide working parents with options so that they can make the decisions that are in the best interests of their families: safe affordable, high-quality child care should not be the luxury of a fortunate few.

"Wow, is that the language of the left," Co-host Pat Gray said, crashing everyone's happy place.

"Language of the left! What are you talking about?" Co-host Stu Burguiere interjected.

"Language of the left! We have been saying this for a long time. We need safe and affordable child care. We not only need paid medical leave, we need the child care. And it needs to be safe, and it needs to be affordable," Glenn said.

Stu added that even though the free market already provides safe and affordable child care, it doesn't go far enough.

"The government should be involved in controlling those costs because this is too important of an issue," Stu added.

Welcome to the new conservatism!

"That's not conservative," Pat said, holding his ground stubbornly.

"Yeah, no, it is. No, it is. No, I've heard . . . traditional families. Kids. Families," Glenn argued.

"You don't care about kids? All of a sudden this guy doesn't care about kids," Stu said.

While traditional conservative principles would hold that parents have responsibility for their children and child care, the new conservatism says it's the government's responsibility.

"Not everyone is some rich person like you, Pat. It's unbelievable. The government needs to step in when the market fails," Stu said.

"Hang on. Let me see if I can speak his language. Pat . . . this is going to save us money," Glenn said.

"In what way?" Pat asked.

Because, duh, maternity leave. All these women that would be going on disability will go instead on free government paid leave so they're saving money and will have extra cash to put into the economy. Plus, stay-at-home moms are also eligible for the free government program, so that's even more money for the economy.

"One of the fastest ways to grow the economy are programs like this, where we give money to people where they can spend it into the economy," Stu said.

"Hello!" Glenn echoed.

The bottom line is we're going to save money, and Trump's new free government program for child care is very conservative. It is not socialism. It is pure capitalism. And Trump is not a socialist. He is a nationalist. He loves America. Yeah, he's a national capitalist. Is there something wrong with that?

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

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!"
