2012 Depression

Another candidate threw their name in the hat today, but it doesn't help that the current frontrunners all seem kind of...bad. Romney is talking about global warming, Palin has another controversy, Pawlenty flirted with Cap & Trade as governor, Newt Gingrich was interesting in 1994, Rick Santorum may not have the funding. Is Obama beatable? Maybe.

The guys started off with Romney, who said, "I believe the world's getting warmer. I can't prove that, but I believe basically what I read is that the world is getting warmer. No. 2, I believe the humans are contributing to that. I don't know how much our contribution is to that because I know there have been periods of greater heat and warmth past."

Glenn said, "Three years ago, I think it was three or four years ago when we were writing one of the books I said that the world is getting warmer. You have to look at the thermometer. Is the world getting warmer? Yes or no. Now, does man contribute to that? I don't know. Should we be responsible? Yeah. We should take care of the planet. We should do what we can do burn clean energy, to do the things that we have to do to take care of the planet. Yes. Is this what Mitt Romney is saying or not? I have no idea."

" Do you have to go any farther than Romneycare? No, you don't. We've been trying to say, well, yeah, it's going to be hard for him and then he does this dumb thing over the weekend. Wake up! Either you're a conservative now or you're not. Which is it, Mitt? Which is it? And he's still walking that fine line," Pat said.

Just five minutes into the radio, Glenn was begging someone to name a good candidate. "Because I might just take some hemp and start fashioning a rope to hang myself. Name them," Glenn joked.

Pawlenty?

"His name kind of sound -- it reminds me of polenta which I like, you know. My wife makes a mean polenta. So, I could go for Tim Polenta. I would be, like, Okay, that sound good. Is he going to give us food, yummy from the oven? Tuscany sounds good. So, yeah, I can go for that but then it also sounds like placenta and that's not good. So, I'm back to where I was at the beginning. He could be either good or bad and I don't know which one," Glenn joked.

Gingrich?

"I had this weird vision this weekend that Newt Gingrich was this election's John McCain where he's, like -- he's a big name and then completely invisible for, like, six months and then all of the sudden -," Stu said.

Bachmann?

Glenn thinks the media will tear her apart and we'll all be stuck defending her rather than hearing her debating the issues. "You think what they do to Sarah Palin is bad? Oh, my gosh. Wait until Michelle Bachmann wins in Iowa. Wait until she wins in Iowa," he said.

Before this goes any further, all of these candidates should declare with 'certitude' they don't have any pictures of themselves in their underwear.

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."
