The midterms proved at least one thing, voters couldn't care less about celebrity endorsements

The great, wonderful Beyoncé wants you to know that she can be whatever she wants, whenever she wants. Sure, she's a musician—and, if you count 22 Grammys and 63 Grammy nominations, it's fair to say that she is considered good—although, who's to say how much she actually writes or performs, besides singing and occasionally rapping. But Beyoncé wants you to know that she is so much more.

Beyoncé can also be an academic. No Ph.D. or prior research needed. If she wants to be an academic—voila!—it is done. A few years ago—around the time that she appeared on an award show in gilded lingerie in front of a sign that said FEMINIST—Beyonce wrote an academic paper titled "Gender Equality is a Myth!" (Yes, she included an exclamation point! Gasp!) Note that Beyoncé happens to be one of the most privileged people on the face of the earth. Which brings me to my point.

One of the many roles that Beyoncé has awarded herself is political activist. She prances around the world spouting off nonsense like she's a professor of political science or a longtime politician. And, believe me, her opinions matter more than yours—to her, at least, all of which is part of the reason a recent poll determined Beyoncé the "Most Divisive Celebrity in the Country."

Actors and musicians have always done this weird thing where they interpret their fame to be a malleable, god-like expertise. Because people, in their minds, worship them for their abilities as an actor or musician they assume that they possess unlimited knowledge and that their opinions matter more than anyone else's. We are all quite familiar with it.

Leading up to the midterms, Comedy Central poked fun at this:

The justice, now, is that people have come to see through the cloud of smugness coming from celebrities. This week's elections proved that people are no longer swayed by celebrities' endorsements. Taylor Swift's fawning over Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen wasn't enough to win him the spot. The same thing happened to candidates endorsed by Dave Chappelle, Oprah Winfrey, Will Ferrell, Rhianna, Puff Daddy, and the scores of Hollywood elite who championed Beto—yeah, it was a bit odd that so many Hollywood actors were fawning over a candidate in a Texas election.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News:

Last night, the American voters–once again—told Hollywood that they simply don't care what they think. All across the country, Hollywood darlings were rejected by the voters.

It's almost as if being a celebrity doesn't automatically instill you with the secrets of existence. I doubt the message will get through to celebrities, though. I'm sure you noticed: They tend to be a bit lacking in self-awareness and humility.

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.
