The interesting link between Justice Kennedy and Salzburg

On a Monday morning in Salzburg, Austria, in the crisp air beneath the Austrian Alps, Justice Anthony Kennedy spoke to a room of 80 students about an unfolding world. For an 80-year-old man, Kennedy proved knowledgeable about the murky future of the cyber age. Kennedy was a special guest at the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change, where lectures focused on the role of populism in global change.

"Journalists have to begin to understand we are in a new world," Kennedy told the students, over the course of an hour. He described the unprecedented change that the internet had brought to the profession, and the immeasurable impact that digitalization has played on the Fourth Pillar.

He said: "The cyber age has tremendous potential, as indicated with Wikipedia. But if it bypasses space and time where there's just this obsession with the present – this neglect of our heritage and history – then our world will change."

Perhaps surprisingly, he also praised the unique capacities of Wikipedia, lauding its ability to bring inspirational works to a modern world, at an unprecedented speed and volume.

Supreme Court Justices make use of their summer break in different ways. Justice Kennedy first visited Salzberg in 1988 – the same year he was appointed to the Supreme Court, so Salzburg has become an important, though somewhat unseen part of his career as Supreme Court Justice.

For years, Kennedy has taught International and American law at the University of Salzburg in Austria during the court's summer recess. The class is offered as part of the University of the Pacific's McGeorge School of Law's summer program. Justice Kennedy made a custom of visiting Salzburg, the gorgeous postcard of a town near the southern border of Germany, a peaceful, village-like town full of waterfalls and palaces.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

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.
