GLENN: Fatherhood.gov. Taking time to spend with your children always pays off. Get involved, even in the smallest ways. Fatherhood.gov is a site for dads that has tips and resources. All right. Here we go, let me just — take the time to be a dad. Today's tips. Experience the joy of reading without the cost of buying books. Visit your community library and get a card for each member of your family. Oh, that is great, isn't it?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Gather your already read books and donate them to the local library, school or shelter. The books will be enjoyed again and you'll reinforce to your children the value of reading, and they will gain a better understanding of the importance of giving to others.

PAT: Donating them really helps them understand the value of reading rather than, I don't know, reading to them. So I think that's a really good idea. Donate over reading to them is a really good — that's good. I hadn't thought of that before.

GLENN: From fatherhood.gov, next tip: Turn off the water while you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime. You can save up to eight gallons of water a day.

PAT: I knew a father who didn't do that.

GLENN: And his kid's in prison now?

PAT: His kid's kid is a drug addict, murdered three children.

GLENN: Next one, many electronic devices and appliances use power even when they are switched off or not in use. You can save money and energy by unplugging the items that aren't being used.

PAT: Boy, if there's a memory I have of my dad, it's when he would walk around the house unplugging everything.

GLENN: Earth friendly cleaning products are widely available and kinder to our air and water. Or you can make your own cleaning supplies with white vinegar, lemons, baking soda and other basics you probably have in your kitchen already.

PAT: Didn't you and your dad used to do that all the time?

GLENN: Check online in your local library for the step by step cleaning green?

PAT: At the bakery you would make your own cleaning products? Remember that?

GLENN: For Father's Day let your family know that you'd like to share a family activity rather than receive gifts. Instead of collecting another tie, take a photo of yourself and your children enjoying time together.

PAT: Good idea.

GLENN: Eliminating the wrapping paper. And if you take a digital photo, if you take a digital photo, it will generate less waste on Dad's special day.

PAT: Wow.

STU: So fatherhood is about saving wrapping paper.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: If you can just eliminate the wrapping paper.

PAT: Well, and unplugging. I mean, don't oversimplify this too much.

GLENN: Visit a farmers market.

STU: Unplugging appliances, too.

GLENN: Or a farm where you can pick your own produce.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Locally grown fruits and vegetables do not need to be shipped which contributes to reducing carbon emissions.

PAT: I actually did that with my mom, not my dad.

GLENN: Bring your own bag to the grocery store. You can probably pack more items per bag and many stores offer a discount for using your own bag.

STU: What does this have to do with fatherhood?

GLENN: Fatherhood.gov recommends instead of buying Halloween costumes, help your children create them using items you already have at home or ask a group of friends to join you in swapping costumes. Recycling the ones the kids wore for previous Halloweens.

PAT: We don't wear a lot of Halloween costumes in June, but —

GLENN: Fatherhood.gov recommends

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: Another tip for dads, buy compact fluorescent light bulbs.

PAT: CFLs, uh huh.

GLENN: Last about five years and use less energy. Switching just one standard bulb to a CFL can help you reduce your electricity bill by as much as 75 cents per month.

PAT: 75 cents! Woo hoo, that's some serious savings, boy.

GLENN: Now so you know —

PAT: That adds up.

GLENN: Fatherhood.gov goes on to say, Spotlight on Dads. Spotlight on Dads' resources are designed specifically for dads and for programs to be able to share with fathers. Spotlight on Dads helps dad think about ways their involvement affects the lives of their children. Each contains a suggestion on books or movies that the government would like to recommend that can be used by Dad to learn more. And a page of discussion and thought provoking questions to further think about each issue. These tips and our tips for green dads are designed for dads to give a quick and easy suggestion on ways you can get involved with your children every day. Fatherhood.gov.

STU: I like the fact that you can, you can save energy and you can save 75 cents a month with the fancy light bulbs but then, of course, you have to spend that immediately on the green cleaning products that are much more expensive that you have to use for the other part of fatherhood.

GLENN: May I just point out, we could have the planet a lot greener if we didn't have kids.

STU: Wow, that's — that's the best path to fatherhood right there, no kids.

GLENN: Fatherhood.gov would like to recommend get rid of those bratty, snotty kids. Stop having so many kids.

PAT: You know the resources they eat up?

GLENN: Not as many resources as this federal government eats up on wasteful things like fatherhood.gov.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
