Glenn: "How stupid are we?"

Are people sharing too much on social media? Given the recent report on the IRS not only inviting themselves into your email inbox, but stalking your social media posts as well, Glenn thinks it's about time we have that conversation.

"How stupid are we to continue to post things on Facebook and continue to be as open as we are?" Glenn asked this morning. "You know, everyone on Facebook, they [Facebook] claim they own."

If public social media posts are fair game for the government, is it about time that Americans stopped sharing quite so much of their personal lives over the internet? Probably. But what will it take for the average person to stop updating their every move on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? Or is that the way it is now?

From Facebook and Twitter to Instagram and Foursquare, people all around the world are sharing more information, personal and otherwise, than ever before.

"It is truly amazing to me how many people will continue to give everything," Glenn said.

Glenn goes on to point out how easily all of the information we make public could be used against us.

"You're giving them every bit of information about who you are, how you think — you're giving them your entire contact list…all of your friends," he added.

The typical response from people who aren't as leary would be, "So what? I'm not doing anything wrong." But Pat points out, "Really? Because they change the definition of what's wrong and what's right a lot."

"It was totally in New York about a month ago to have a gun, and be on Prozac.  It's no longer cool to have a gun and be Prozac," Glenn followed up. "How about that one?"

Glenn isn't anti-social media. In fact, both he and his business use social media frequently. However, his is a word of caution to think about what you're making public. It seems like every day another story is breaking about how some group is being added to a watch list or labeled by the government. Just this week it was released that the DHS claimed to be watching Christians. A couple of years ago the state of Missouri added Tea Party & 9/12 activists to a watch list. The majority of the groups organize and/or communicate online in some form or fashion. It wouldn't take long to find anyone associated with these groups, in fact, that's the point of some social media platforms — easy organizing and direct communication.

The issue really isn't with the American people or emerging technology. It's with growing government power and overreach.

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."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
