VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: We're marching right to socialism. That's so crazy when people say that, marching to socialism. How irresponsible. You know, the Cato Institute has this terrible habit of noticing how government is getting bigger and bigger, regardless of what party's in power. They just released a report yesterday keeping the tally of this country's march to socialism. And when I say march, it's not really a march. It's more like a gold medal Olympic Sprint. Maybe that's just me. Our budget is now $3.9 trillion. That's double what it was eight years ago. Think about what that means. If we could somehow against all odds impossibly cut the government spending by 50%, we would only get back to where Clinton had it. Yeah. Yeah, but tea parties are all about Barack Obama. No, seriously they are. You know, Clinton wasn't exactly known for his Reagan esque spending cuts. Remember Ronald Reagan said we needed to get rid of the Department of Education? Well, under Bush, Department of Education spending actually doubled. But it's not just the amount of spending that has skyrocketed. It's almost the amount of ways that you can spend it or the government can spend it. In 1980 we had 1,123 different government subsidy programs. This is under Carter. 1,123. Reagan came in and actually cut the number way back. Remember he wanted to starve children. He hated government spending. He cut that number from 1,123 to 1,013. Wow, what a hate monger. Now, that might not sound like much until you look at it in context. Then you realize, wow, that's pretty impressive.

Midterm, George H. W. Bush not only had the amount go up from 1,013, he actually passed Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter had 1,123. George H. W. Bush had 1,176 ways he could spend your money. Government subsidy programs. After that the government really stopped trying to act like they even cared about it. You know, Bill Clinton increased the amount of giveaway programs by 21% in eight years. Then George W. Bush came in, you know, that hate monger that all hate mongers love because he wanted to starve children to death. You know, everybody anybody who was at a tea party loved George W. Bush because he wasn't out of control with his spending. George W. Bush came in with his compassionate conservativism and added 27% more programs on top of Clinton's 21% of increases. The result? We now have 1,804 federal subsidy programs. That is 78% increase in the last 23 years. The report says we are in the midst of the largest federal gold rush since the 1960s. Unfortunately in the 1960s we actually had gold. Can you believe these crazy nut jobs who are saying that we're on the march to socialism and gigantic oppressive g overnment? It's crazy!

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.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
