Conservative firebrand Ben Shapiro joined Glenn Beck on the show today to weigh in on President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Ben was mildly disappointed with the president's choice, noting Kavanaugh's track record of avoiding controversial rulings. Given the obvious fact that the Democrats would reject the president's nominee no matter who he chose, why wouldn't Trump go with the more conservative candidate?

"This is why I say Trump should have just gone for it," said Ben. "If they're going to sink to this level of absurdity, then you may as well just go for the person you know is going to vote your way 100 percent of the time. You may as well just pick Mike Lee, because if they're going to go crazy anyway, then don't just rent the libs, own the libs."

"If the Democrats and the Republicans reject this candidate because he's too radical, I think we should go right to you," Glenn suggested. "I think you should be nominated because it would set the precedence of 'don't screw with me.'"

"I will say that the ratings for the hearings would just be extraordinary … We can make this happen, my hat's still in. If Kavanaugh falls through, go with me," joked Ben.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

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.
