GLENN: Hang on just a second. This is breaking news. We should have started it the right way.

DAN: This is breaking urgent news on the Glenn Beck program.

STU: That's right. Thank you for that wonderful introduction. Right now I'm in Washington and we're watching the congress at work. They realize we are in an energy crisis and they realize that people are paying a lot of money for gas. It's really weighing on people's personal budgets and their pocket books, if they carry them. And right now, Glenn, they are doing that by, of course, the one step that congress is allowed to take under the Constitution which is interviewing Scott McClellan about his new book.

VOICE: Do you know what steps were taken by the White House to conduct an investigation into the internal leak?

GLENN: Are we talking about an oil leak here? What kind of leak? One of the refineries that is leaking right now that is causing this oil?

STU: Well, Scott McClellan wrote in his book about that Valerie Plame thing. So... thus the hearings. Hold on. Listen.

VOICE: -- sentence. Now, this would seem -- well, do you regard this as in any way in violation of the President's pledge to find out all the information he could and making public about --

STU: That means a million barrels of oil have been found.

GLENN: Well, how is this finding oil?

VOICE: It does undermine our system of justice in my view.

STU: Yes, yes. Do you hear that?

GLENN: I don't know what you're --

STU: That means ANWR is open.

GLENN: No, I think this is -- I think this is really just about the Scooter Libby thing.

STU: No, he's got a new book out. Listen to this.

VOICE: He did say anything that was involved in this -- I said on his behalf no one would be on this --

STU: You know what that means, Glenn.

GLENN: No, I --

STU: We can now drill off the coast of Florida. In fact, all of that gas is already to the pumps. You are probably down to, like, $2.50 a gallon right now if you check outside.

GLENN: But Stu, I really do believe this doesn't have anything to do with oil.

STU: No, no. Listen, listen, listen.

VOICE: I do not know that. I do not make that claim and I do not have the information to know whether or not that was the thinking. I had already left the White House by the time he commuted Scooter Libby.

STU: Oil on the continental shelf is now available to be drilled. See, he's switching to oil technology.

VOICE: Let me, on behalf of some members of the committee apologize to the aspersions of your motives instead of questioning --

STU: (Inaudible). He's nonconcerned about the evidence of Scott McClellan.

GLENN: Yeah, now that he's got a book out. This is amazing. This is absolutely amazing. What is up with us! This is absolutely incredible. I can't take it anymore. We'll go back to Stu in Washington maybe a little later on in the program. Stu, are you back in the studio yet?

STU: Yeah, Glenn, I'm here. Thank God that oil shale has opened up.

GLENN: Amtrak is really fast.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
