Glenn Beck: 97% Arlen



Pennsylvania's own Arlen Specter

GLENN: Okay, here's Arlen Specter. Now, how did Arlen Specter used to vote, Stu?

STU: Well

GLENN: Oh, he's got it right here.

STU: I've got it right here. Arlen Specter was, as you remember him and frustrating to conservatives, a Republican that tended to vote with Democrats more often than Republicans.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Which was our problem with him initially.

GLENN: But it wasn't like overwhelming. It was just on key issues if I'm not mistaken.

STU: These are taken on the contentious votes. So not, you know, the sort of

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You know, the votes that don't mean anything.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: These are the contentious votes. Now, this is while he was a Republican before this year, before an important Quinnipiac poll would show him behind in the primary, the Republican primary. So his normal voting was 58%. With the Democrats, he's a Republican, voting with the Democrats 58% of the time.

GLENN: Now do we have the audio of how he said, "I'm not going to change." Do we have that audio?

STU: Yes, we do.

GLENN: Go ahead. Play the audio here.

VOICE: I will not be changing my own personal independence or my own approach to individual issues. I will not be leaving an automatic 60th vote. I know some of the media stories since my statement was released this morning are taking a look at the 60th vote and I will not be an automatic 60th vote. And I will illustrate that by my position on employees choice, also known as card check. I think it is a bad deal and I'm opposed to it and would not vote to

GLENN: Okay, so what he's saying here I think we got it. What he's saying here is he's not going to be a 60th vote.

PAT: He is not going to be an automatic vote.

GLENN: He won't be an automatic vote. He is not going to change didn't he say he is not going to change the way he votes?

PAT: Not going to change the way I vote.

GLENN: Or he is not going to change his viewpoints.

PAT: None of my viewpoints.

GLENN: Don't count him in.

PAT: I am the same maverick, which I have always been. My friend, John McCain says.

GLENN: All right.

STU: So follow this time line. The beginning of the year he's voting 58% with the Democrats as a Republican.

GLENN: 58%, 58% as a Republican.

PAT: That sounds about right, 58%.

STU: But then he gets Pat Toomey is going to enter the race, there is a big poll that comes out where he is 12 points behind Toomey. So he is a Republican now having a challenge from the right. In fact, a lot more Republican. He goes from 58% agreeing with the Democrats down to 16%.

PAT: That's absolute coincidence, absolute coincidence. It just happened to be better Republican.

STU: Exactly. Thank you, Arlen. So then he makes this speech saying he's not going to just all of a sudden change and become a

GLENN: 68 to 16 in the other direction.

STU: Right.

GLENN: But then when the polls don't change, he decides to jump ship.

STU: Right. And he decides to become a Democrat. So he goes from 16% voting with the Democrats to 69%.

PAT: Another flabbergasting coincidence. There's liable to be some Democratic bills that came along that I happen to be in favor of. That's all that is.

GLENN: That's all that is.

PAT: Conspiracy theory, helicopter, oh, my God.

GLENN: No, there's no helicopter. Those are the polls shifting so fast.

STU: But, of course, that's not the end of the story.

GLENN: No.

STU: Because Arlen Specter goes over to the Democratic Party and now he's being challenged from the left. Someone supposedly more liberal than him.

GLENN: So he goes more left.

STU: So he goes even more left. So he goes from 69% voting with the Democrats now to 97%.

PAT: What did I tell you? I said I wasn't going to be automatic.

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT: That's not automatic, is it?

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.
