GLENN: Speaking of Michelle Obama, Michelle Obama came down from the second

story where she was eating pea soup for lunch and she came down and she wants

to, I don't know, put carrots in front of us. She's -- she gave a statement

about how we cannot leave it up to the parents because childhood obesity isn't

just a public health threat, it's not an economic threat. It's a national

security threat as well. (Sniffing).

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Here she is.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Let's be clear. These folks don't just support this bill as

leaders and as professionals but as parents as well. And we know that ensuring

that kids eat right and stay active is ultimately the responsibility of parents

more than anyone else. And everywhere I go, fortunately I meet parents who are

working very hard to make sure that their kids are healthy, they are doing

things like cutting down on desserts and trying to increase fruits and

vegetables. They are trying to switch their kids to kind of healthy habits that

will stay with them for a lifetime.

PAT: Making progress, mmm-hmmm.

MICHELLE OBAMA: But when our kids spend so much of their time each day in school

and when many kids get up to half their daily calories from school meals.

GLENN: Oh, my.

MICHELLE OBAMA: It's clear that we as a nation have a responsibility to meet as

well.

GLENN: We do.

MICHELLE OBAMA: We can't just leave it up to the parents.



Michelle Obama: Child Obesity a ‘National Security Threat’

GLENN: We can't just leave it up to the parents.

PAT: We can't just leave it up to the parents. You know, I love that. She's done

that several times now. Yes, it's the parents' responsibility. I'm sorry, we

have to do this anyway. Yes, it's the parents' responsibility, but we can't

leave it up to the parents.

STU: We know the government, when we try to do stuff through the government, it

doesn't work.

PAT: It doesn't work. There's no evidence that it works. And yet we're doing it

anyway.

STU: We're doing it anyway.

PAT: I -- what? And she's -- how many times has she done this? We've got several

of those sound bites.

GLENN: Why do you hate children? Why do you hate children so much?

PAT: I think because I have six of them and they irritate me in my own home.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah, it's spread out by --

GLENN: See, we cannot leave Pat.

STU: No.

GLENN: Can he want leave the parenting of Pat's children up to Pat.

PAT: No, you can't.

GLENN: It's not going to end well.

PAT: No.

STU: He will probably serve his kids Christmas cookies.

PAT: Look at how fat my kids are. Look at the obesity.

GLENN: Okay, they're not fat. You are but they're not.

PAT: Right, exactly.

GLENN: Because you know why? Because you -- the only thing left in the

refrigerator after you're done are the carrots.

PAT: The crumb. The crumb that's even too small for a mouse.

GLENN: Here, have a carrot, kid.

 

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."
