GLENN: Well, the savior of the universe, Barack Obama, and his socialist plan to save the universe, the stimulus, have run into a few bumps in states with Republican governors. Not enough bumps but a few. Rick Perry is not taking a big chunk of the money. Looks like Bobby Jindal is not taking it, either. Nor will Marc Sanford from South Carolina. Sanford has this little problem with the stimulus. You know, he apparently thinks that we got into all of these problems by spending too much. What a dope. So Sanford's not going to take the money. Well, he said there is one way, if he could use it not to create billions of dollars of future programs but to pay off South Carolina's debt. That makes sense, right? Get out of debt. In tough times, you get a large amount of money from an inheritance. Grandma dies, you are having a tough time, what do you do? A lotto ticket. You know, you get a large sum of money from robbing an heiress in a drunken casino, whatever. You use that money if you're smart to pay off your debt. Then you can have the pressure relieved so you can make wiser choices for the future. Well, the problem with the plan is -- hang on. Give me a second. I'm thinking. Oh, I know. The problem with that plan is it doesn't give the White House or Washington any control, which is the motivation behind the stimulus package in the first place. White House budget director said in a letter to Sanford that the federal stimulus law does not law President Barack Obama to make an exception for that cash. Sanford sought a waiver last week asking to pay off the debt rather than use the money to create jobs and avoid deep program cuts. So Obama would really love to help out, but he just can't. It's just, oh, man, my hands are tied. I'm going to use all of my political power to break those contracts at AIG but I'm stuck. Man, I want to do that. Oh, well, I guess the federal government's just going to have to hold a gun, which I don't believe in, to South Carolina's head. That's my only option, guys ..

Think about what this means. The country spends too much, they try to solve it by spending even more and then it's actually against the law to try to be financially responsible with the money when you get it! No, no, you have to trap yourself into programs where you are forced to spend even more for many, many years down the road. And Mr. "I'm looking for any way to take the bonus money from AIG employees who are in contracts with their employer, I just can't seem to find one possible way to make an exception for the governor who wants to pay off his debt Obama," it doesn't really work for me. And what's the classy way President Obama's handling this? His minions at the DNC are running attack ads against Sanford. Just know if you want to stand against this president, he swings a mighty big hammer. Oh, which reminds me, has anybody seen that sickle laying around anywhere?

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
