Greed, excess, manipulation, robbery: this budget bill represents the worst of Washington DC

TWO THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO PAGES... that’s how long the newest budget bill is.

A small select group of lawmakers wrote this monstrosity and delivered it to the rest of Congress last night. But no worries! I’m sure your Congressman has PLENTY of time to read over this thing and make sure all your needs are met. There’s NO WAY this thing gets rushed through. Oh, wait... THEY’RE VOTING ON IT TOMORROW.

Two thousand, two hundred and thirty-two pages. Let’s put that into perspective for just a second. Expecting someone to read this bill before they vote on it tomorrow would be like asking them to read War and Peace, not once, BUT TWICE. War and Peace is only 1,400 pages. Not even a speed reader could get that done.

The truth is obvious. Most of Congress won’t even attempt to read this, but they’ll be guilted into voting for it anyway because... “THE GOVERNMENT MAY SHUT DOWN IF WE DON’T!!!”

$1.3 trillion of YOUR MONEY is at stake here. Yeah but, we’re dealing with a lot of complicated things this time, right? The border wall, DACA... If you were hoping to hear about either of those you’re going to be severely disappointed.

Those two issues, which held up the budget agreement last time, are nowhere to be found in this two thousand plus page mega-bill. Wow, it’s almost like neither side actually really cares about either issue. Almost like it’s just one big game.

So what IS getting funded? Well... Planned Parenthood is still getting money from OUR pockets. A half a billion dollar project to build a tunnel under the Hudson River is in there. I’m sure that doesn’t benefit New York Senator Chuck Schumer at all...

This isn’t governing.

The amount of wasteful spending is out of control. We’ve cut taxes, so we SHOULD be cutting back spending, but Washington is raising the national debt at a historic rate. In the last six months, the national debt has grown by ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. Has the debt grown that quickly before? Oh sure, back in 2009 during the GREAT RECESSION.

We’re now looking at $21 trillion in total debt, and there is NO sign that ANYONE in Washington cares to do anything about it. To the contrary, they just hid even more wasteful spending into a two thousand two hundred and thirty two page bill that THEY KNOW everyone won’t have time to read. This budget bill represents the worst Washington DC stands for: greed, excess, manipulation and outright robbery.

This isn’t governing. Who in Washington will take a stand and stop this?

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.
