Gingrich rising?

Is Newt Gingrich set to surge back to the top of the GOP nomination race? Probably not – but that’s not stopping some conservatives to make that prediction. Why? Glenn presents a “conspiracy theory” on radio today that may explain the rush to claim Gingrich is rising in the polls.

This morning on The Drudge Report, the main story was “Lazarus Rising Again?” below a photo of Newt Gingrich. The focus of the story was Gingrich’s comfortable lead in George, his home state.

But does Gingrich have a shot at winning the nomination?

“If you look at the polls the answer is no,” Glenn said. “The whole story is well, about Georgia, his home state.”

Who is being hurt most by Gingrich staying in the race? It seems to be Rick Santorum.

“The easiest path for Rick Santorum to get the nomination for the Republican party is to beat Newt Gingrich in Georgia,” Stu said.

“Newt Gingrich is a spoiler for anybody but Mitt Romney,” Glenn added.

“Look at Newt Gingrich, who every single time when he was winning in South Carolina kept saying over and over and over and over again that Rick Santorum should drop out. He couldn't say that enough. Now that he's the guy that's 10 points behind Rick Santorum he has forgotten that analysis mysteriously,” Stu said.

When Gingrich was close to Romney in the polls, he repeatedly called for other candidates to drop out and unite behind him to oppose Mitt Romney.

Stu added that Santorum’s best shot to win the election is to win Georgia or Virginia in order to knock Gingrich out of the running for good.

“The worst thing to happen for Mitt Romney would be for Gingrich drop out,” Glenn said.

But why would Newt still be running? Glenn presented a theory.

“It sounds so conspiratorial,” Glenn prefaced. “But I just know these people as I get older and as I have spoken to the candidates that I trust. There's a GOP apparatus.”

“Is it possible that the GOP apparatus has made a deal with the Gingrich stay in?” he wondered.

Glenn said that it’s too easy for a President to surround themselves with Washington insiders, which is one of the reasons that policy sometimes changes little from President to President.

“What I'm afraid of is that the President gets into the office and he's not connected already to himself and to a group of people. The President cannot do it alone,” Glenn said.

“If you pull all of your team from Washington, you're in trouble. You're absolutely in trouble,” Glenn warned.

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."
