GLENN: I have to start with John Conyers. John Conyers actually no nonparity sort of way actually said this

CONYERS: I love these members that get up and say, "Read the bill."

GLENN: Stop, stop. This sound like a comedy show, doesn't it? Doesn't it sound like, I love these ‑‑ so this congress member came up to me and said, "Read the bill (laughing)." Yeah.

PAT: Why would you do that?

GLENN: Why would you ‑‑ I love these guys, "Read the bill." It's crazy.

CONYERS: The bill, if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Have you not heard that yet, Stu? This is great.

PAT: Is he not a lawyer?

GLENN: Play it again. Of course, he's the head of the judiciary committee.

PAT: Yes, he is.

GLENN: Here it is.

CONYERS: I love these members that get up and say, "Read the bill." What good is reading the bill if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill.

GLENN: So he's just going to sign it!

STU: Wow.

GLENN: So the solution is, no, no, no, I need two attorneys. It's 1,000 pages. I need more time. I'm not going to sign this. His Lucian is just sign it.

STU: Luckily, though, we are in a system where our president has promised us five days of time to look over every bill and post it online so we can ‑‑

GLENN: Yeah. And that doesn't happen. That didn't ‑‑ no.

STU: No, he said he was going to post them online, all look at them. So you can more than two days of lawyers. It's twice as much time as he needed.

GLENN: Do you have the audio? We played it last night on TV. Have you put the audio in the audio vault of Barack Obama actually ‑‑ no, you don't.

PAT: I was just looking for it. When he was complaining about Bush?

GLENN: When he was complaining about ‑‑ it was on NewsBusters, I think? Is that the conservative site?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: NewsBusters. They posted it yesterday, I think. Of senator‑elect Obama saying, you know what the problem is; this administration just rushes these giant bills through congress. Nobody has any chance to read them. And Randi Rhodes is, "Yeah, I know, that, also, one was 14 pounds." I know. Well, that's when accidents happen. This has got to stop.

PAT: I think I have it.

VOICE: NewsBusters.org posting a November 2004 interview with Air America's Randi Rhodes where Senator Obama complains about the Bush administration.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: When you rush these budgets that are a foot high and nobody has any idea what's in them and nobody's read them.

RHODES: 14 pounds it was.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Yeah, and it gets rushed through without any clear deliberation or debate, then these kinds of things happen. And I think this is in some ways what happened with the PATRIOT Act. I mean, you're ‑‑

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Unbelievable. I'm going to weigh the bills. I want to weigh all of the bills. 14 pounds! Oh, I'd like to weigh the other ones.

STU: You've got to love NewsBusters. They catch everything. It's such a needle in the administration. They just hate that.

GLENN: Just the worst.

STU: Don't you hate when you say things on record and people go back and look at them? When you're actually ‑‑

GLENN: No, I don't mind, I don't mind that unless I've been a complete and total hypocrite and I don't have a reasonable explanation for changing my point of view.

STU: There is a reasonable explanation. He's in power now. That's the explanation.

GLENN: Yes, yes, okay. That's all I was asking for.

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.
