Romney goes off on heckler

Mitt Romney’s skills as a businessman may be his greatest strength heading into the GOP primary, and they were addressed last night at the debate. However, Glenn pointed out that the far left will use his business background and success to attack him.

During the debate last night, Romney discussed how he upgraded his states S&P rating through a combination of spending cuts and new revenues, but argued that raising taxes are not a key part of getting on sound financial footing.

“I don't believe in raising taxes and as governor, I cut taxes 19 times and didn't raise taxes,” he said. “I went to the legislature and I said I want expanded powers to unilaterally be able to cut spending, not just to slow the rate of growth but to cut spending, and they gave it to me and I did. Of we cut spending. Every single year I was governor we balanced the budget and by the end of my term we had put in place over a $2 billion rainy day fund. That kind of leadership is what allowed us to get a credit upgrade from Standard & Poor's and that's the kind of leadership we finally need to have in the White House.”

Glenn agreed. “We have been saying for awhile that we have to have somebody run this country with some common sense. It is a business,” he said.”

“Unfortunately, you have people that are demonizing corporations and businesses and I have news for you,” he added.

It didn’t take Pat long to play audio of this demonization in an attack on Romney. At the Iowa State Fair yesterday, a heckler who shouted out that the government should abolish the Social Security cap so the rich would “pay their fair share” into the fund.

Romney, however, handled the heckler well. “You know, there was a time in this country that we didn't celebrate attacking people based on their success and when we didn't go after people because they were successful,” he said.

“All the streets in America are connected. I've watched people attack Wall Street. You know what? We're not going to tear down other Americans,” he said.

And when the heckler kept attacking corporations, Romney said, “Corporations are people, my friend.”

“Everything a corporation earns ultimately goes to the people,” he clarified.

While Stu, Pat and Glenn think he was absolutely right in his points, the crew agreed that he’s going to be attacked for his comments.

“You can't love jobs and hate the people who give them,” Pat said.

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."
