'I Was a Bad Dad Last Night': If Your Family Is Like Mine, You Are Wasting a Lot of Time Doing This

The real problem here is: We used to look for honesty. That's what we were looking for. Honesty.

Strength in leadership was way back. Honesty. Then somebody who shared my values. That's what we were looking for.

Now we're looking for strength. Be careful on what you wish for, strength doesn't come from a president or the Oval Office. Strength comes from its people. Strength comes from the character of a country's people.

A president could launch a war, but it's the people that are going to win it. A president could do something that would cause just economic chaos, a president could destroy what was the greatest health care system in the world. But a president nor Congress can fix it again.

It's going to have to come from the people. What we decide to do with our day every day.

That's what's going to save our families. That's what we get up to do every single day.

There's a phrase that I read when I was, oh, in my 30s and I was sobering up and I was trying to find answers. And it was, 'that which you gaze upon, you shall become.' What are we gazing upon? What are we spending all of our time and our energy on?

I was a bad dad last night. I think I'm at the top of my stress level and I'm so tired when I get home. I've been getting home at about seven or 8 o'clock at night and my kids need my attention. And my wife needs attention.

And I put my hand on the doorknob, and I think, "All I want to do is go to bed." I am so tired. And my family wants my attention and needs my attention. And what makes it, I guess, better, but in some ways worse, that's all I want to do is give them my attention. I just want the energy to be able to give them my full attention and to be with them.

My son, his voice changed this summer. I just thought like eight months ago, he had the perfect Charlie Brown voice. He always has. He sounds like Charlie Brown, or used to. And I wanted to record him reading some Charlie Brown. And I just thought of it this spring. And I thought, "I've got to do it before his voice changes."

His voice changed.

This is my first son. That has thrown me for a loop. It's not -- it's like he's changed. It's not like talking to my son anymore. My little boy anymore.

I don't want to miss anymore of their childhood. Last night, I came home. We were so tired. I tried to do what little I could with everything. And then everybody was like, "Brush your teeth. Do this. Do that."

"I'm not going to argue with you anymore. Get up to bed."

And I just couldn't take it. And I snapped.

Is this really what we're spending our time on? What little time we have, we're arguing. Get your ass upstairs and brush your damn teeth, or I'll take the braces off of your teeth myself.

You've been sick all day. Your mother has asked you to go to bed. Get your ass in bed.

What little time we have, we're spending it arguing with each other. I'll bet you that's happening in your family as well. And it's happening in our family -- our country. Instead of doing something great, instead of doing something worthwhile, instead of building something that makes people stand back and go, damn, look at those people, we're wasting all of our time arguing with each other.

You want to talk about North Korea. Good, then let's talk about North Korea. Let's talk about the millions that could die and the -- and the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, that are being tortured. And definitely, the millions that are being starved to death. And we've not cared.

What have we done about it? Nothing. And now we -- now we're all so damn convinced that it's time to go to war. Why? Why? Why?

Because the press has decided we have to pick this up now? Because the president has said something and we can't go back on his word, we can't look weak? I don't care how we look anymore. Can we do the right thing for once? Can we do the right thing because it is the right thing? Not because we have to.

But we're never going to get there, until those who know they have to brush their teeth. Go upstairs and brush their freaking teeth. And those who have got to put the video game down because you're not supposed to be playing video games at this time. Put the damn video game down. And we stop wasting what little time we have arguing and we actually come together and try to do something positive with our time.

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.
