GLENN: All righty. When your friend says something like this...

PAT: I just can't wait to see Michael Moore's new movie about the evils of capital I am.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: You know what? His last movie proved once and for all how bad our healthcare system is.

GLENN: Yes, yes.

PAT: For example, Mr. Tub of tubbiness, why is our life expectancy lower than other countries around the world, hmmm?

GLENN: That is a great point.

PAT: I know. That's why I made it.

GLENN: Consider this. Location A has a life expectancy of 78.7 years, and location B as a life expectancy of 75.8 years. So you could reasonably assume that location A has a better overall healthcare system, right?

PAT: Yes, exactly. Finally you're getting it. But one with a higher life expectancy obviously has universal healthcare, right?

GLENN: Ooh. No, sorry, sorry. If you looked at Page 253 of Arguing With Idiots, you'd learn that location A is actually Utah and location B is Nevada. Two states that share a border with nearly identical healthcare systems. Neither with universal government healthcare. And their difference in life expectancy is larger than the difference between the U.S. and other countries that you're complaining about.

PAT: Oh, you are just trying to change the subject.

GLENN: You mean by changing it from life expectancy to life expectancy?

PAT: Just shut up and let me finish. Stop trying to shout me down and shut me up.

GLENN: I'm really not

PAT: And cut me off all the time.

GLENN: I'm not. I

PAT: Let me get a word in edge wise.

GLENN: All right, go ahead.

PAT: If it's not the healthcare system, what is it, smarty fatty pants?

GLENN: Well, for example, Americans have a really big country that they live in with those really long roads. So we drive our cars much more than other people in other countries. That means we have more car accidents.

PAT: So.

GLENN: And our homicide rates are higher than any of the other countries as well.

PAT: What does this have to do with anything?

GLENN: Well, if you take out the accidents and the murders, things that have nothing to do with the quality of our healthcare, guess where the U.S. comes in on the life expectancy chart?

PAT: Number one million?

GLENN: Well, you were close. Number one.

PAT: What?

GLENN: One.

PAT: Excuse me?

GLENN: So unless countries like

PAT: What number is it again?

GLENN: One. So unless countries like France have somehow developed a way to unslash the neck of a murder victim or detelephone pole a car after an accident, you kind of just lost Mr. Idiot.

PAT: Well, they haven't figured out any of that yet because they have been working on how to stop you from eating their entire populations! Populations, eating them!

GLENN: Sorry, I missed that.

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
