Glenn responds to the tragedy in Arizona

The nation was shocked this weekend by Jared Lee Loughner’s attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that left her in critical condition and six people dead, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge. Glenn joined the rest of the country in praying for a full recovery for the wounded and for peace and comfort for those who are grieving the loss of loved ones.

Glenn said, “My family and I have been praying for the Gifford family. I didn't, I didn't know her really. As you know, I don't follow the individual politicians. And we looked for anytime that we have said anything about her, and the only time we've ever brought her up is I used her as an example of someone with some political courage. I don't agree with her and her policies, but she was someone who came out and spoke her mind against her own party at one point, and I highlighted her as someone who had courage. We pray for her and her family and all those involved.”

Glenn was celebrating his anniversary with his wife on Saturday afternoon when he heard the news of the attack on Giffords. He recalled, “I was actually at Spider-Man when I got word and my wife and I, we were having our anniversary, and I wanted to make the day about my wife because she has put up with so much this year.”

During the show, one of Glenn’s security members turned to him and alerted him that there had been an attack on a Congresswoman. “About halfway through the performance, Matt [a member of Glenn’s security team] who is with me leans over and whispers in my ear, ‘I'm sorry, sir, but I'm told that you need to see this.’ I looked at his screen and all it said was, congresswoman shot in the head. Several may be dead. That's all I knew. I didn't know if it was Michele Bachmann, Nancy Pelosi. I didn't know who it was.”

Glenn had the same immediate reaction that many have in moments of tragedy; he wanted to make sure his family was safe. “I immediately closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and said, ‘Please make sure my children are secure.’ He said, ‘Already done, sir.’ I said, ‘Can you find out who was shot? What happened?’ He said, ‘Yes, sir.’ He got up. The other member of the detail then was now outside the door of the performance and the two of them stood now at the doorway watching me while trying to find out what was going on. My wife said, ‘What's happening? On our anniversary.’ I just squeezed her hand and I said, ‘Nothing, it's all -- everything's okay. Just watch.’ She knew.

Glenn said, “We must, we must look at the examples of Gandhi and Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ who, while everyone wanted violence, they stood against it. While the easy way was violence, they stood against it. They were outspoken. They had fiery words. They turned over the tables of the temple. But they were against violence. And in the end all three of them were killed. All three of them.

They thought, those at the time, that their message would be silenced by violence. Somebody violent thought they could stop them with violence. And in the real end, all three of those men won.”

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
