Who knew? All it takes to heal the world is a little hug.

Hey, you know what we should do to fight the murderous, bloodthirsty drug criminals ravaging Mexico? Hug 'em. That's right. Just give them a nice big ole hug. Poor fellas, they're just hurt in their hearts, that's all. And I'm sure all we would have to do to stop that army of crazed, money-hungry, power-starved, fully-weaponized outlaws is to extend our arms in a warm embrace. They just need a hug. That's why they've been murdering journalists and politicians at unprecedented rates, right?

Well, that is the world according to Andres Manuel Lopez.

Obrador, Mexico's newly-elected president, who ran under the slogan "hugs, not bullets."

Reuters spoke with Obrador's proposed interior minister, Olga Sanchez, who said "Not only will it be amnesty, it will be a law to reduce jail time. We will propose decriminalization, create truth commissions, we will attack the causes of poverty, we will give scholarships to the youth and we will work in the field to get them out of the drug situation."

There is no doubt that, within minutes of the "hugs, not bullets" campaign's success, crowds throughout the world will break out into the street. ISIS will officially disband—it turns out they were only ever in need of an embrace. Israel and Palestine will break down like two bitter lovers finally rekindling. England and Ireland. Ukraine and Russia. Pakistan and India. And, within a week, all borders will be replaced by hugs. What a time to be alive, folks.

There is no doubt that, within minutes of the "hugs, not bullets" campaign's success, crowds throughout the world will break out into the street.

Things are about to change. The world of our children and grandchildren will know no currency. People will be able to buy a sandwich with a song and a bicycle with a smile. Each and every child will be born with bongos and a complimentary Doobie Brothers "Best Of" record.

While some of that, let's be honest, sounds all right, the sheer delusion required to believe that a world like that is possible by simply hugging the bad guys, well, it's hard to even fathom. Although, it's a level of delusion not exclusive to Mexico, and I am positive you know what I mean.

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.
