VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: You know, there's a lot of things that just don't work. One of them is taxing the rich. What? Taxing the rich, no it doesn't does it work? Really? From the Baltimore Sun, one of Maryland's budget balancing tactics, asking millionaires to pay more money to the state this is from the Baltimore Sun appears to be backfiring. What? A year ago Maryland became one of the first states in the nation to create a higher tax bracket for millionaires intended to help balance the state's finances and make the tax code more progressive. But still quoting from the Sun it is finding that the number of Marylanders with more than $1 million in taxable income who filed by the end of April has fallen by 1/3 to about 2,000. Taxes collected from those returns as of last month have declined by roughly $100 million. Well, you need to tax the people who are left there even more! I can't really? You are saying that millionaires who can generally live wherever they want seem to be for attorneys and accountants and that their clients have moved out of state to avoid the new tax rate. Maryland is such a small state, it's so easy to move a few miles south to Virginia or a few miles north to Pennsylvania. So there are millionaires who are no longer going to be filing in Maryland and their tax returns. Allen Schiff, who runs an accounting firm, says that those in industries hit hard by the national downturn such as retail and banking are likely among those who no longer qualify to pay the millionaire tax. When you make that type of money, another 1% just doesn't matter. They have the attitude of, "Whatever." Really? Is that how they became millionaires? I mean, what's an extra $10,000 or $50,000 or $100,000? Who cares? Wealthy people love to give their money away to the government. And with Maryland state taxes, it's 6.5 for millionaires and the very next state over, Pennsylvania, having a 3% flat tax, surely that wouldn't inspire anyone to flee. Another 1% to 3%, 3 1/2% just doesn't matter. And the next 1% didn't matter and the other 1% just doesn't just keep raising it 1% a year. It's magic. It never matters!

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.
