TriBeCa Film Festival to award Glenn as Disruptive Innovator of the Year

Glenn's basketball skills may have proved to be disappointing, but he is being recognized by a prestigious event that takes place in New York City every year: the TriBeCa Film Festival.

No, this is not a parody post. Later this month, Glenn will be awarded the TriBeCa Film Festival's Disruptive Innovator of the Year award. Pretty impressive, right?

"The TriBeCa Film Festival is huge," Pat noted. "Who have been some of the other disruptive winners?"

This year, the other disruptive innovator is the guy who did Gangnam Style. Among last year's winners was Justin Bieber, who won the award for his use of social media.

"You are changing the way things are done," Stu explained of the award. "You're disrupting the normal processes with innovation."

"With innovation…so you're not being a revolutionary and destroying other people. You're disrupting the normal flow because you've innovated and made something better. And so they believe that we may change television and the way it's being done because we are disrupting the big studios and the big television networks, we're disrupting through our innovation and so the TriBeCa film festival is giving me that award," Glenn added.

If you're thinking, "giving Glenn Beck an award at the TriBeCa Film Festival can't be the most popular thing they've ever done," you'd be right.

Glenn explained that they called him before giving the award because it was going to be controversial. The award is called the Charles Darwin Award, so they thought Glenn might get too much flack.

"I'm like, I don't really care. Sure, I mean, I think it's great. I'm honored. The reason why it's the Charles Darwin Award is because survival of the fittest.  I believe in the survival of the fittest," Glenn said.

"At least in business," Stu responded.

Glenn added that he believes in survival of the fittest in business and humans, but he also believes in taking care of the elderly, the handicapped, and those who can't help themselves. But what's ironic is that the people who claim to believe in evolution so much, don't practice survival of the fittest — they're opposed to it, at least in practice.

"I don't believe that we just keep passing you in grade after grade after grade," Glenn said.

He went on to add that the failing banks should be allowed to fail. If people don't feel pain in their own lives or when they're businesses aren't doing well, no one will ever learn — people will not learn from their mistakes.

If Glenn had never been allowed to fail, he wouldn't be in the position he is now to receive this award.

"So thank you TriBeCa Film Festival," Glenn said. "...It's an honor, and I appreciate it."

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."
