GLENN: Don't you just hate selfish people? Always talking about themselves, blah, blah‑blah, ignoring the collective. I sure do. And so does today's czar. He's against reproductive rights. I mean, not, you know, the abortion kind of reproductive rights. He's totally cool with that. I mean your right to have kids. He said, quote, individual rights must be balanced against the power of the government to control human reproduction. Sure, sounds obvious to us. But some small‑minded people out there have crazy beliefs, and this czar has pointed out, quote, some people, respected legislators, judges and lawyers included, have viewed the right to have children as a fundamental and inalienable right, yet neither the Declaration of Independence, nor the Constitution mentions a right to reproduce, end quote. So who's this crazy czar? Who's the one that has the president's ear?

PAT: Is it Leonard Nimoy, Dr. Spock?

GLENN: No, it's not Dr. Spock.

PAT: No?

GLENN: No. I'll keep going. Quote: In the United States individuals have a constitutional right to privacy, at least to the extent that a woman has a right to choose not to have children. But that right's not unlimited. Where the society has a compelling subordinating interest in regulating population size, the right of the individual may be curtailed, end quote. If it's boring, you know, we'll probably let you have your kid, but compelling? Who needs an abortion? You do! All right, who's the czar? Who's the czar?

STU: Alec Baldwin? He loves kids.

GLENN: No. Okay, last hint. If you still need convincing on the legality of this whole "You can't have any children," our czar has an argument that's impossible to disagree with. Quote: The law regulates other highly personal matters. For example, no one may lawfully have more than one spouse at a time. Why should the law not be able to prevent a person from having more than two children, end quote. Boom! There it is! Case closed.

STU: Great logic.

GLENN: Yeah, it is. Okay, what's your guess?

PAT: Ernest Borgnine.

GLENN: No, he's not a czar. I don't think you guys understand this ‑‑

STU: Who's that lady? Charo? Is it Charo? Because she's so good with the kids, really adorable and just ‑‑

GLENN: The answer is science czar John Holdren.

STU: Oh, wow!

GLENN: The best friend of science.

PAT: Who would have seen that coming.

GLENN: He is the best friend of science and worst enemy of the future ratings of Nickelodeon.

VOICE: Ooh, sorry. Just like everyone who plays this game, you lose. But at least you'll die a little smarter just for listening to... Know Your Czars!

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.
