GLENN: Let me go to Jill in Ithaca. Hello, Jill, you are on the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Yes, why don't you really tell people the choices they would have under the proposed healthcare plan. Why do you make it sound like it's a dictatorship? Why do you do that?

GLENN: Well, because I happen to believe that we are headed towards a dictatorship.

CALLER: Well, you couldn't ‑‑ could you prove that in court?

GLENN: No, but I could make a very strong case, Jill.

CALLER: Well, you haven't yet. You are just trying to scare the American people.

GLENN: Okay. What is ‑‑ take away ‑‑ take some of the things that I have talked about and challenge them. Go ahead and take them piece by piece on the case that I have made that we're headed towards a dictatorship.

CALLER: Why don't you give me one to start, Glenn.

GLENN: Okay, because see, what I'm doing here, Jill, is just proving to the audience that you don't listen to this show. You don't know who I am.

CALLER: I listen occasionally. I don't listen to you ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, it's occasionally.

CALLER: Yes. It's annoying, number one. Number two, I just listen to see what you guys are up to to scare the American people.

GLENN: No, I'm not trying to scare them. I'm making a case, Jill, and I have said on this program, which you would have known if you had listened to me. If you disagree, I would like to hear the argument. And please, take the things that I have presented and show me where I'm wrong because I want to be wrong, Jill. I do want to be wrong. I wanted to be wrong about George W. Bush, but I wasn't. And it's weird because, Jill, you would have agreed with me on George W. Bush. But now that it's your guy ‑‑ pardon me?

CALLER: Excuse me? You weren't wrong about him? Or you were wrong about him?

GLENN: Oh, no, I wasn't wrong about George W. Bush. I thought George W. Bush was taking us into a nightmare scenario. I warned about George W. Bush on the border, I warned about his spending, I warned that he was a progressive president, that he was opening the door. He's the guy that opened the door for all of this.

CALLER: Did you encourage people to vote for him in 2004?

GLENN: Oh, sure, I absolutely did. And then got on the air in 2005 and said what a terrible mistake I had made. Yeah.

CALLER: And you couldn't figure that in the first four years? You didn't see that the first four years?

GLENN: No, I didn't quite honestly, Jill, because I have blinded ‑‑ Jill, Jill, Jill, Jill, Jill, Jill, would you like to have a conversation and hear this? Or do you just want to spew your propaganda points?

CALLER: No, I don't want to practice your ‑‑ I'll have a conversation.

GLENN: Okay, good. I didn't see it because quite honestly I was blinded by September 11th. And I believed that we were ‑‑ and I still do ‑‑ that we have gigantic enemies across the sea that would like to destroy us. And I didn't believe ‑‑ excuse me, Jill. I think this is my time. I didn't believe that the Democrats even understood the enemies that we faced. I still don't think they do. I think quite honestly I think Barack Obama is in bed with some of our enemies. He's at least encouraging them. We're making deals with Syria? What is that all about? So I was blinded by September 11th to some of the other things that I wasn't for. I made a choice, and that was really the wrong choice. And I at least had the courage to say those things on the air because, see, I'm not about parties, Jill, but apparently you are.

CALLER: No, I'm about American rights and not being spied on by FISA, things like that.

GLENN: Oh, you're about ‑‑ FISA. So in other words, the ‑‑

PAT: That's still going on, by the way.

GLENN: Does the same thing that Obama, the thing that Obama said he was against but then went and renewed, you are against?

CALLER: I'm not about parties, either. So ‑‑

GLENN: Okay, so wait a minute. So you're against Obama for that same thing?

CALLER: I guess we agree on that one.

GLENN: So you'll admit your mistake for going after George W. Bush and voting for Obama because he was against that? You'll admit that mistake?

CALLER: No. Because I was ‑‑

GLENN: Oh! What a surprise double standard.

PAT: I didn't see it coming!

GLENN: I admitted my mistake but you won't do that on yours.

CALLER: It's a mistake. I'm admitting that single mistake.

GLENN: So it was a mistake for you to come out against George W. Bush and support Obama on that. Were you blind or did he just lie to you?

CALLER: I guess he wasn't as ‑‑ he wasn't honest, you are right. Or he had other ‑‑

GLENN: No, no, he wasn't as honest. He either lied to you or he did not. Did he lie to you?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: He lied to you? Okay, good.

CALLER: On that one.

GLENN: So then we've got one. We have one that we agree on. Look at this. [ APPLAUSE ]. We're coming together, bringing people together, Jill. Now give me one topic ‑‑

CALLER: Let me about ask you lying. Did you lie on The View about what happened?

GLENN: Oh, wow. Jill, you missed the independent investigative reporter that proved that I was telling the truth!

STU: From Amtrak, a statement from Amtrak.

GLENN: A statement from Amtrak.

STU: You should listen more than occasionally, shouldn't you, Jill?

GLENN: Isn't that weird.

CALLER: No, I can do what I want because I'm an American.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Be stupid. That's what ‑‑

GLENN: No, you can go ahead and be ill informed and then come and bring bogus facts to the table.

CALLER: Where is that independent ‑‑ I'll look it up.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead. Fine. Stu, where would she find the independent ‑‑ where would she find that report?

STU: We'll put it in our free e‑mail newsletter that we want your e‑mail address on.

GLENN: That we would love e‑mail address on at GlennBeck.com. You can find it through Breitbart News.

STU: It was only 17 minutes long. So it might not have been in‑depth for you.

GLENN: Yeah, it might not have been in‑depth enough.

CALLER: Well, you don't know me. You shouldn't make a comment like that, Glenn.

GLENN: Oh, well, I'm sorry. I just thought you were making a comment about me being a liar on The View.

STU: The only problem is we only listen to Jill occasionally. We don't have all the facts apparently.

GLENN: So Jill, may I ask you this question?

CALLER: You can ask.

GLENN: Oh, well, thank you very much.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I'd like to know that when you see the evidence by an independent investigative reporter and it shows that Amtrak made special accommodations for Whoopi Goldberg, et cetera, will you then apologize to me? Hello?

CALLER: (Inaudible).

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
