GLENN: Now, we have some audio here. I want to play Joy Behar apparently on The View said this about Michelle Bachmann.

BEHAR: So, while Tea Party favorite Carl Paladino is making a lot of noise with his anti gay comments, many on the right have been noticeably silent. Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann sidestepped the question this morning on Today but it seems strange that a woman, even on the right as far as she is, wouldn't say something about equal rights. So, where are Michelle Bachmann and the other so called mama grizzlies on this on the other social issues? Joining me, what is up with her? Why doesn't she open her mouth?

VOICE: Bachmann?

BEHAR: Yeah, Bachmann.

VOICE: I don't know that it's you know, a Congresswoman's job to defend a candidate. I think she can she can endorse if she like, she can comment, but's not obligated. I think it's up to pundits to say what's what and, you know, someone like me, a conservative pundit, I am absolutely not defending a Carl Paladino. Someone like Ann Coulter wants too. That's perfectly within her purview, but I don't leave it to Michelle Bachmann to get up there and say yea or nay to every kind of candidate, you know, gaffe.

BEHAR: Don't you think she should have said something, though?

VOICE: Absolutely. I think it is a human imperative to weigh in, especially when it's someone in your party, when it's somebody that is conveying messages about your party, especially when one of the messages, because she's one of these women on the right who's running and suggesting that this is the year of the woman, that in itself is sort of a socially progressive impulse about including more people and here's this comment that's very much about excluding people and she's not she's not weighing in.

BEHAR: Do you think it shows the true colors of these mama grizzlies so called? I mean, that's against a Federal program to help poor kids get health insurance, Michelle Bachmann. She's no mama grizzly. She's against children. Who is she

PAT: She's against children, which is why she's had 23 foster kids, five of her own.

GLENN: Michelle Bachmann, why do you hate children so much?

Congressman Michele Bachmann

BACHMANN: Geez, Glenn, thanks for that wonderful question. I appreciate it. We love children! What can I say? My husband and I have five biologicals, we've been blessed to have 23 great foster kids. So, I am the old woman that lives in the shoe.

GLENN: Okay. Well, so, you obviously don't hate children. Let me rephrase it. I wasn't aware, apparently, that you, you know, care so much about children but you have so many. Why do you hate the planet so much?

BACHMANN: You know, what's funny to me is how the left describes loving children. They believe that if truly government should be the one to rear your children, not the parents, and the more that government can take over various functions of rearing children, that in their mind is being pro child. In my mind, I want to empower people to be able to make their own decisions. So, if we want to have a mom or the dad stay home to take care of the children or educate their children themselves or put them in an alternative to public schools, people should have that choice and that is considered anti child to the left.

PAT: They love children so much they would like to have them aborted right up until the time of birth, too. That's a beautiful kind of love right there, but Michelle

GLENN: It depends, unless you're Peter Singer, which you can abort up to two years of age. Michelle

BACHMANN: That's right.

GLENN: I think the real question here is not about how you hate children, about why you hate the planet so much, but why there isn't a Bachmann/Christie, Christie/Bachmann ticket for 2010.

PAT: That's the bigger issue.

GLENN: That is the bigger issue.

BACHMANN: But, see, you have to have the campaign manager. That's the prerequisite.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Is that all it will take? We can make that happen.

GLENN: If that's all it takes, okay.

BACHMANN: If you're volunteering me, I'm volunteering you.

GLENN: Okay. I will I'll campaign. I'm put yard signs out. Okay.

BACHMANN: Okay. Wow. Then we win for sure.

PAT: I don't think you can run, though, until you address a Congresswoman from Minnesota must address a controversial statement from a gubernatorial candidate in New York. I don't understand why you haven't been all over that, Michelle!

GLENN: I live in the next state over from New York, and I don't even pay attention to this race. What was the controversial statement that he made? He's damn near nuts. He's still better than Cuomo, but he's nuts.

PAT: Yeah. I support Lazzio

BACHMANN: What they were very upset is they had I was on the Today Show with Meredith Vierra.

PAT: And she's always so fair.

BACHMANN: And that's all she was worried about was my opinion on statements that were made by the Republican governor candidate and I refused to go there because, quite frankly, that is not what people are interested in in the country right now. They want to know will this candidate bankrupt the country or not. That's really what they're worried about and will they uphold the Constitution or not. That's why when we go back, if I'm lucky enough to win my election and go back, I'm already planning to have weekly classes on the Constitution and bring some of the best minds in the country. Can you imagine if one of our Supreme Court justices, a Roberts or an Alito or a Thomas or a Scalia comes in and teaches members of Congress about our declaration, the Bill of Rights, about the Constitution

GLENN: Michelle, how how sad is it that we that you have to hold a class in Congress for people who are swearing to uphold it? They should know what it is before they swear they're going to uphold it!

BACHMANN: Well, but don't you think that it's a good idea to do it because

GLENN: Oh, I think it's a great ad idea.

BACHMANN: Because just like if you're a major league football player, baseball player, you continually practice. So, you have to continually hone your schools and let's face it, we have a lot of fabulous people who are coming in who will really shake up Congress, probably for the first time in our lifetimes. So, why not give them the tools that they need to make these arguments on the floor, in committee, with their constituents back home, so they can truly know what it is that is the foundational building blocks of our great country?

GLENN: Michelle, I'm just I'm trying to get onto the server of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. I'm trying to I just made a $10,000 donation to the chamber.

BACHMANN: Good for you. Oh, bless you.

GLENN: My dad was a member and I've asked you the servers are down at the chamber. I want to make this the biggest fundraising day for the Chamber of Commerce in its history and I still can't get on the site. I don't agree with everything the chamber does. I think the chamber's on the wrong side of a lot of issues, but when you are targeted and you know this you and I and the chamber, we're some of the most targeted people in Washington

BACHMANN: That's right. You're right. You're right about that. So far in my race Bill Clinton and Joe Biden have come in. Now speaker Pelosi and President Obama are both scheduled to come into my state.

GLENN: Is that help you raise money and get people to vote? Is that

BACHMANN: I think it's on the other side.

GLENN: Really? They I think they may be mistaken on that one. I think that might

BACHMANN: They're sending in every big Howitzer they have in the country to come into my state because they you know, I'm their target. I'm if you're running, you would be their target.

GLENN: Right. So, if they so, what I want to ask you is, there are people that won't agree with everything that you say. There are people that don't agree with everything that I say and there are and I don't agree with everything the chamber says, but when you see the forces that have alined with each other on the left, we're talking radical revolutionaries, you can talk to me about the border and disagree on the border, but that doesn't mean the violent overthrow of the United States government. Do you agree with me that we have to make allies with good, decent, honest people that we disagree with or we're not going to be able to win? And I don't mean win the election. I mean save the republic.

BACHAMANN: That's exactly right. And I think one of the best stories is the book The Miracle At Philadelphia. It talks about how we actually have the compromises to get the Constitution and these men were not all like minded but they figured out they had to work together to fashion this document to move the nation forward and we need to do that going forward. I agree with you. I don't agree with every position with the chamber, either, but they're being falsely, outrageously, hippocratically maligned. Remember it was President Obama when he was running for President who his team disabled his software for his donations so that any donation under $200 couldn't be tracked and he refused to appoint enough people to be a quorum on the committee that would do the review because his campaign was out of compliance. I don't know that he still has appointed enough people to have a quorum. This is a scandalous story and so now he's projecting that same kind of action onto the chamber. It's scandalously outrageous.

GLENN: All right. Michelle Bachmann, best of luck to you. You keep going. I know you're facing an uphill battle, but you are really, truly I can count them on one hand, people in Washington that I trust with the future of my children and the republic. You are one of those people and I and God bless you and we pray for you every night, Michelle. You keep going and I want to just make it clear before she hangs up, she did make the announcement that as long as I'm a campaign manager, she and Chris Christie will run for President and vice president of the United States in 2012. You heard it here first and I'm glad I could help make that happen. Michelle? Go ahead.

BACHMANN: It is a humbling honor. Thank you so much, Glenn.

GLENN: You're welcome. Go back to hating children now. Congresswoman Michele Bachman.


 

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.
