GLENN: Now, I want you to hear this audio. This is a mother crying about her son

PAT: Two of them. Two of them.

GLENN: It's sad. Now it's a double whammy. Now it's twice as sad.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Two children that did not have access to broadband. Here it is.

LOCKLEAR: My name is Rhonda Locklear. I'm from Pembroke, and I'm a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

PAT: Did you get that? She's a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

GLENN: I love the Lumbee tribe.

LOCKLEAR: I have two children and like any mother, I want the best for my boys.

PAT: Like any mother.

GLENN: Don't make fun of her.

PAT: I'm sorry.

LOCKLEAR: Jacob, my oldest, is a transfer student to UNC Pembroke and Isaac is in the eighth grade at Pembroke middle school. Like most families across the state who either don't have access to high speed Internet or who can't afford it, we were stuck with dial up service.

GLENN: Oh, no! Stop it!

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: No, no!

PAT: Stuck with this, until just two months ago!

GLENN: No, I won't

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear.

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear of

PAT: In this country!

GLENN: In the richest country in the world!

PAT: Best, neatest, most amazing, not the best but the

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: Neatest?

GLENN: No, one that has made so many terrible mistakes.

PAT: Mostly crappy, technologically superior, though.

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: Not superior?

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: To anyone wet.

GLENN: Only superior because we rape the rest of the world.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But we don't we have somebody that has dial up. Hang on. It gets worse.

PAT: In this country.

GLENN: No, it goes no, listen.

PAT: Hang on.

LOCKLEAR: I feel that this has put my family, my sons in particular

PAT: Get this.

LOCKLEAR: at a severe disadvantage.

STU: No, no.

LOCKLEAR: Isaac depends on the Internet to complete his assignments for school. He often uses the internet to work on reports or often at times to just do research.

STU: Research, that's it!

LOCKLEAR: I watch him struggle with the dial up service and observed him get frustrated.

GLENN: Stop, stop! I watch him struggle with the dial up service!

PAT: As he tries to download the pages. Come on!

GLENN: I can't... take it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: Can I tell you something?

GLENN: Where is my grandfather?

PAT: You and I were together when we struggled with the pages downloading when we had 14.4 modem? Remember that?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: (Making staticy noises). And at that radio station, I think AOL was about the only thing going and you would start loading a page and you'd leave and you'd come back in 15 minutes when it's done.

GLENN: Now imagine, imagine trying to do

PAT: Imagine it now trying to do a project.

GLENN: Why are you making fun of her?

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm trying to empathize with her. I can't even empathize.

STU: I can't even tell when it's the audio or when it's him, it's so

GLENN: I'm trying to just wonder where our grandparents went to. Did where our grandparents go?

STU: Well, they had DSL.

GLENN: No, no. No, no.

PAT: We're in library deserts now.

STU: At T3.

GLENN: I mean where did our grandparents go and they left us without a boot in the ass. Because there's a few people that need some of those boots in their ass. And you know what? Quite honestly she may be one of them.

PAT: May? I'm sorry. Did I hear the word "May" come out of your mouth?

GLENN: I mean, can you imagine? Can you imagine if you would have gone at least maybe my grandfather was different. If I would have gone to my grandfather and said, grandpa, I'm just struggling with this dial up service.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: He would have said

PAT: A guy who grew up in the Depression.

GLENN: "Get the hell away from me and go do your homework." That's what he would have said.

PAT: Pick up an encyclopedia. There are things called books.

GLENN: How about a library? I don't know how far she is from a library but how about a library?

PAT: She might be in a library desert.

STU: Or an Internet cafe desert.

PAT: Right.

STU: She could easily in an Internet cafe and you are making fun of her.

PAT: She could easily be in an Internet cafe desert.

GLENN: I don't think any of this is necessary.

PAT: You want to hear the rest?

GLENN: Yes, go ahead.

PAT: It's good. It will get even more horrific.

LOCKLEAR: Because he cannot move around on the Web like he likes.

GLENN: No, not like he likes.

STU: He likes to go around on the Web quickly and he could not do that.

PAT: He could not surf the porn sites that he likes to surf.

LOCKLEAR: Seemingly easy assignments took him hours to complete.

GLENN: Hours.

STU: Pictures of Megan Fox took him hours to download.

PAT: One naked lady took him an hour and a half to have it load on the Web.

GLENN: I don't think this is necessary.

LOCKLEAR: It is hard to watch. Isaac got very upset.

PAT: When all he could see was her forehead.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

PAT: And he was waiting and waiting for the chestal area to appear.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: And it took hours at a time for that Web to download it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: I wept as I watched him try to drool as those pictures would not load onto that page. I love it when people can make

GLENN: Do not, please

PAT: five syllables out of a monosyllabic work.

GLENN: Do not encourage him. This is not helpful.

STU: You are right. I'm sorry.

GLENN: I'm putting it

PAT: Once it started loading her feet from the bottom up and he waited four and a half days until the knees appeared. By the time it got to her hips, he realized she was in a miniskirt and he was so upset, he wept as I did as well.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
