If it has been years since you've actually exercised your constitutional right to vote, does a state have the right to clear your name from its voter registration roll? According to the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision yesterday, the answer is, yes.

The five conservative-leaning justices on the Court ruled in this case that Ohio's practice of purging infrequent voters from registration rolls does not violate federal law.

Ohio says the policy is needed to keep voting rolls current by removing people who have died or moved away. Makes sense.

But how does the Left view this? The same way it views everything else in American life now – through the outraged lens of minority oppression. Justice Sonia Sotomayor says the ruling endorses the disenfranchisement of minority and low-income Americans.

Top Democrats are already saying this decision will give a boost to Republican voter-suppression efforts. Actually, Democrats who know their history will remember that the Democratic Party invented voter suppression after the Civil War, when the KKK roamed the South intimidating, attacking, and frequently killing black voters.

The Ohio policy is not harsh.

The Ohio policy is not harsh. If you don't vote for two years, you get a registration confirmation notice in the mail. Then, if you don't reply to the notice, and if you still don't vote for four years in a row, then you're purged from the rolls. So, you have a six-year window to make sure your registration is current. In many parts of the world, this would be considered a generous policy.

Clearly, more people need to vote in Ohio. And if Ohio has this problem, you know pretty much every other state has it too. We want our elections to have integrity, yet the Left can't stand this concept, or voter ID laws, which they say targets minorities and the poor who may not have the means to acquire an ID. These kinds of laws also unfairly target dead voters, which, let's face it, have been known to be the Left's favorite kind of voter.

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.
