GLENN: Oh, yes. It is Friday. That means we open up the phones to you and ask Glenn anything. The number is 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. I asked yesterday several times what exactly did we get for giving up the missile shield. What was it that we exchanged things for in the missile shield? The front page of the Drudge Report today is saying that the polls said we have been sold to the Russians, and they are exactly right. But what did we sell out for? What was it we got? You know when Ronald Reagan went to Reykjavik, he had the missile shield. He had Star Wars. The only thing is we didn't have Star Wars. We were bluffing. We didn't have it. But we sure made them believe we had it because we could negotiate. Well, now here we have the missile shield. Eastern Europe is begging us to install it. The world's on fire and what happens? What do we do? We give it up? For what? How did we sell out Eastern Europe? What did we sell it for? I contend we sold it for GE.

VOICE: GE, we bring evil to life.

GLENN: In a strange coincidence yesterday, just hours after we announced that we were giving up the missile shield, GE announced that they would be meeting with Vladimir Putin along with, who is it, Merrill Lynch or one of those?

PAT: Yeah, Chase? J.P. Morgan Chase, yeah.

GLENN: One of them that's still in business. Obama says that he just got something faster and better. I don't know what that is. What is it that's faster? Ron, what is it that's faster and better than the missile shield? Putin is now praising Barack Obama saying that he's a brave, brave man. Oh, yes. Oh, yes, there's somebody I want to get praise from, Vladimir Putin. Ahmadinejad meanwhile says Israel will not last long. Netanyahu is asking the world please, please don't abandon us.

So let's just see who we've abandoned here recently. We've sent a statue back, a bust of Winston Churchill, or tried to. Hey, hey. Yeah, that statue of Winston Churchill, no thanks. You can have it back. We said that to England. The prime minister said no, no, no, that was a gift from our country after September 11th. Yeah, that's okay. You can send it back. No, no. No, it was a gift. You can keep it in one of your museums if you wish. No, that's okay. Why would you do that? We give the queen an iPod with all of the hits of Obama, all of the great speeches of Obama. Why would you do that?

STU: It did have the High School Musical soundtracks on it as well.

GLENN: It did? I didn't know that.

PAT: That was huge. That was huge.

GLENN: That's media spin. Why wouldn't they put that in there?

PAT: Now, the Gordon Brown movie collection that's not compatible with the British system, did that have High School Musical as well?

STU: I believe it did.

PAT: It did? Okay.

STU: He couldn't watch it. He wouldn't know if it did. But it could have.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: We have now alienated our allies, our ally of Israel. Israel knows who they're dealing with, with Barack Obama. We have sent people over to Syria; meet with them. We've now received a nice book from Hugo Chavez. We've got people here in America making great movies about Chavez. We have our congressmen going down to meet with Fidel Castro and his brother and, you know, we really should look into the great system of Cuba.

PAT: Don't underestimate what he's sure, it's communist but look what he's put together.

GLENN: Look what he's brought.

STU: Look at the weather down there, beautiful.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

PAT: Absolutely.

GLENN: That's fantastic.

PAT: Beaches and gambling.

STU: You're underestimate you can't just monolithically paint Israel as understanding, you know, who Barack Obama is. If I remember that poll right, I think 4% of Israelis believe he's in their corner. So

PAT: That's typical of Glenn, though, continually exaggerating the point.

GLENN: I know, I'm sorry.

PAT: It was 4%?

STU: 4.

GLENN: I was painting with too broad of a brush.

PAT: Stop it.

GLENN: There's 4% of the bristles that shouldn't have been in that paint.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: I apologize.

STU: It's important to admit the truth, Glenn.

GLENN: I believe we are, for the first time in our history, we are seeing our country on the wrong side of history. We are seeing our country push our traditional allies away and embrace our traditional enemies. What are we doing? What did we get in return for selling out Eastern Europe? You don't just give that up. Is it a coincidence that GE gets to go meet with Vladimir Putin now? Traditionally speaking, what happens is the former Soviet let's just call a spade a spade. The Soviet Union, they announce something like this, that there's going to be a meeting weeks before there's an announcement of a giant deal. Was a deal made with American big business that is in bed and in the Oval Office? Was a deal made to sell eastern Europe out? I hope to God not. I hope to God not. But the Poles say today, not the polls but the Poles, the Polish believe they have been sold out by us.

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.
