Day 3: Strengthen your voice

In the wake of the tragedy in Arizona, there has been a rush to pin the shootings in Arizona on the rhetoric of the right and the Tea Party despite there being no evidence to support this. As Rahm Emanuel has said, never let a crisis go to waste. The left is using the tragedy to further their own agenda – regulation of free speech – and now Rep. Clyburn, Al Sharpton, and Congressman Sherman looking to blame the right and regulate conservative speech.

To show how ridiculous it is to link Jared Loughner to talk radio and the Tea Party, Pat played some audio from Congressman Sherman, who admitted in an interview with Megyn Kelly that there is no evidence to support the comparisons.

Congressman Sherman said, “Well, it's clear from his web postings that he had picked up some of the extreme right positions such as that our currency is not real currency, et cetera.  You do hear that in the blogosphere on the extreme right.  But again my point is if you have a heart attack, you stop smoking, whether or not you can absolutely prove that the nicotine that you've taken in caused that particular heart attack because you know that breathing in toxic fumes is going to be harmful to our political system.”

What’s wrong with this statement? Well, pretty much everything.

First, the Congressman only uses Loughner’s obsession with currency to tie him to the right. But as Glenn points out, George Soros is concerned about currency as well.

What else does Loughner believe in? Well, he seems to share some interests as Van Jones.  Stu said Loughner believes in “The Communist Manifesto, one of his favorite books, the fact that he believes George W. Bush took down the twin towers.” Stu added, “His classmates say he was a left‑leaning guy, that he was a pot‑smoking hippie, that he was quite liberal.”

Glenn made the point that the right could try and peg the killer as a left-wing liberal, but they haven’t because its unnecessary and wrong. Glenn said, “Maybe we just haven't played the game enough.  Because that's what ‑‑ that's what people say:  Well, they'd do it to us.  Well, they're doing it to us.  So maybe we should do it to them.  Is that the solution; is that the answer?  Or would that lead to more trouble?  That would lead to more trouble.  You have to believe that the truth shall set you free.  No matter how dark it is, the truth shall set you free.”

Glenn said that it was important to stand fast and to speak the truth. He said, “So the first day was the victims and the shooter.  Who were they?  The second day was what are the people in Washington going to do?  What are the people with power?  What is their response and their plan?  Today it's about you.  So now what are you going to do about it?  You know the facts.  You know who this guy was.  You know the truth.  You now know what they're going to do.  You know the Republicans are not mounting an aggressive campaign.  You know that the progressives are.  You know that the media is in bed with the progressive campaign.  They have a story line and they will execute that story line.  You know it.  You see it.  It is only a matter of time before voices go away.  Which brings me to you.  What have you done to strengthen your voice?”

Glenn said it was important to prepare yourself by being armed with the facts. He said, “You must be your voice.  Have you prepared?  Have you done enough homework?  Have you put yourself in a position of credibility with your friends?  And your family?  Look, some people are not going to listen to you.  Get over that.  Most of them will be in your own family.  Get over that.  Have you put yourself in a position to reclaim your own voice?”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

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."
