A Day to Remember

We all love our holidays. For most of us, they are an opportunity to slow down and spend time with friends and family. They are rare moments where we get to stop and reflect, and in these tough economic times not everyone gets to be that lucky. More than ever, those of us who get to slow down are the exception, not the rule. But whether you’re spending the day at home with family or you’re at work with your co-workers, I ask that you join me in remembering our fallen soldiers today, Memorial Day.

Memorial Day, once known as Decoration Day, began shortly after the Civil War and commemorates U.S. men and women who died in military service. In light of the recent successes in our War on Terror, it becomes too easy to forget the price many heroes paid to secure our freedom and make these brief victories possible. In great celebration, we should also remember great sacrifice.

I have talked a lot the past few months about courage, and no group embodies that virtue more than those fighting and dying across the world for man’s freedom. Regardless of your political viewpoint, you must support and admire those engaged in wars and conflicts in the defense not only of our country, but also in support of oppressed people across the globe. With all the chaos brewing across the globe, there's no more important time to stand for man’s freedom, and U.S. men and women in the armed forces live that idea every day. As Billy Graham said, “Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” I for one am strengthened by each and every soldier, veteran, and military family I have come across in my trips around this great country. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

Traditionally, Memorial Day also marks the beginning of the time when people, including me, begin to tune out. You spend more time with the kids and more time outdoors. By the time you get back on track in September the whole world could have changed. It's great to spend more time with family - but I challenge you not to unplug and to stay tuned in because freedom's enemies are certainly not taking the summer off.

I also challenge you to join me this August in Israel for Restoring Courage, whether in person or through other forms of support. I might be there with seven people or 7000 or completely alone, but I will stand and make a clear statement to those who oppose freedom. I hope you choose to stand with me, no matter your religion or nationality, because man's freedom isn't just an American thing, it's for every single human being on planet Earth.

Take today to thank our veterans, pray for the brave men and women overseas, and remember those who fell defending the right for man to live free. Let us be strengthened by their courage. And let's make it contagious.

Laus Deo,

Glenn Beck

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."
