Chris "Balloon Head" Matthews

Chris Matthews went after Michelle Bachmann for comments she made during her response to The President’s State of the Union regarding the Founders and slavery. Glenn took exception to Matthews’s remarks, and he showed who the real balloon head was on radio this morning (hint: he’s a host on MSNBC. OK, that doesn’t really narrow it down).

“And I think it is high time that recognize the contribution of our forebearers who worked tirelessly, men like John Quincy Adams who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country,” Rep. Bachmann said.

“Well, I don't know what to make of that, Sal. That balloon head. That's not what our history was founded on. We created the Constitution which includes treating slaves as three fifths of a person. It went on all of the way to the Civil War. We had compromise after compromise trying to avoid a war. We went to war and lost 600,000 people in the worst catastrophe in our history because slavery continued to the 1860's and only ended because of that war. And here's this woman you've made your spokesperson saying that somehow the founding fathers dealt with it. That's the one thing they did not deal with. That was the horrible compromise that was at the heart our Constitution. Why do you put someone like this forward who is a balloon head, who knows no America history?” Matthews responded.

Well, Glenn really didn’t like those comments as it showed a complete misunderstanding of history.

“You self-sanctimonious, self-important balloon head, America has had enough. Do your own homework,” Glenn exclaimed.

“Here are the exact words on July 5th, 1852, balloon head. Frederick Douglas said, "I defy the presentation of a single pro-slavery clause in the Constitution. Interpreted as it ought to be interpreted, the Constitution is a glorious liberty document," or, Chris, was Frederick Douglas just too stupid to understand the Constitution?”

“If you want to disagree with Frederick Douglas and which basically you would be calling him stupid, calling him not intelligent enough, not up to your high ivy league tweed jacket balloon head pipe smoking nonsense, go ahead, go ahead. I'm going to stand with Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas.”

Glenn said that the only reason people like Chris Matthews are going after Rep. Bachmann and Sarah Palin is because they might run for President and they would have a good shot at winning.

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."
