Kavanaugh might be the force to turn back the blue wave

Regardless what the absolute truth is about Brett Kavanaugh during his high school and college days – and we'll likely never know with certainty – the fact is, Senate Democrats stooped to lowly political warfare to try to derail his confirmation. And while it looked like the dirty tricks might work in their favor early on, it now seems the strategy may be backfiring. Polling indicates that the Kavanaugh circus is energizing Republican voters.

RELATED: THE VOTE: Finally the end is in sight — or is it?

An NPR-PBS-Marist poll this week found there is now a negligible difference between the percentage of Democrats and Republicans who consider the upcoming mid-term elections to be "very important." That change is significant because when the same poll was taken in July – well before the Kavanaugh hearings began – the percentage of Democrats who consider the mid-terms very important was significantly higher than Republicans. In the new poll, the "very important" response from Republicans is up twelve percent. Pollsters are convinced this is the Kavanaugh effect.

That trend is also reflected in polling from six states with competitive Senate races: Arizona, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, and Texas where Republicans have either narrowed the gap or pulled ahead, largely thanks to the Kavanaugh battle. Nationally, Republican donations are up 175% in the last week.

Until yesterday, only two Senate Democrats up for reelection – Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota – had not publicly opposed Kavanaugh. Heitkamp is considered more likely than Manchin to lose in November, yet she announced yesterday that she will vote "no" on Kavanaugh. Manchin is apparently still reading the latest FBI report, or more likely, testing which way the political wind is currently blowing in West Virginia.

Democrats had Republicans right where they wanted them – divided over President Trump. They were ripe for the taking.

Democrats had Republicans right where they wanted them – divided over President Trump. They were ripe for the taking. The last thing you would want to do strategically is anything to make the different Republican camps come together on an issue. Democrats had one job, but they wasted their anti-Trump political capital on trying to take down a Supreme Court nominee who wasn't even the most conservative pick on Trump's shortlist. Imagine what this process would have been like if Trump had picked Amy Coney Barrett.

That's not to say Kavanaugh's confirmation is a done deal of course. It will be shocking if there's not some late-breaking, last-ditch, new accusation or line of attack on Kavanaugh today ahead of the full Senate vote tomorrow.

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.
