Glenn opened the radio program this morning with the latest details out of Boston.

“It is quite an amazing week in America as we see things that have happened that we have never seen on the streets of America before,” Glenn said. “We have seen American’s limbs blown off in a marathon in Boston. We have seen our press go in to massive denial. We have seen our president meeting with Saudi officials while they are getting ready to whisk away suspect #1 in the middle of the night.”

TheBlaze has been tirelessly reporting the story all night long, and Glenn recapped some of the most pertinent information.

5:00PM ET: The F.B.I. released photos of two men suspected in the bombing of the marathon. They were described as extremely armed and extremely dangerous, but not necessarily with guns.

“Now they do have guns obviously,” Glenn said. “But the reason why these guys were so dangerous is because they know how to make bombs out of pressure cookers and every day items.”

10:20PM ET: An armed robbery involving two male suspects was reported at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, Massachusetts near MIT. An MIT campus officer responded to the robbery and was shot and killed in his vehicle by the two suspects. The two suspects then carjack a black Mercedes SUV. It was pursued by police vehicles. They drove six miles to nearby Watertown.

12:48AM ET: Radio traffic indicated that during the pursuit the suspects were tossing multiple explosive devices outside of the windows of the vehicle. The car came to a stop on a residential street in Watertown, and the suspects engaged in a shoot-out with police who were chasing them. One transit officer was hit and critically injured. One of the suspects was hit multiple times and taken into custody. The second attempt to flee is at full speed in the SUV. After the vehicle is barraged with gunfire, the suspect escapes and reportedly flees on foot.

“So you understand, these are not normal teenagers,” Glenn said of the suspects.

1:10AM ET: The injured suspect is rushed to Beth Israel hospital. They report he is suffering from too many gunshots to count.

1:35AM ET: The suspect is pronounced dead after 15 minutes of failed resuscitation. He is believed to be the black hatted suspect in Monday’s Marathon bombing.

“I want you to hear me carefully,” Glenn said. “There is so much information going through here. It is critically important that you understand that this is suspect #2 that just died and suspect #3 that is still on the loose. Suspect #1 – the government is going to try to hide suspect number one. Do not forget him.”

Police cordon off a 20-block area of Watertown and order the residents not to leave their homes as they conduct a house-to-house search and a street-to-street search for suspect they say is number one.

“I say he is number three,” Glenn added. “He's the guy in the white hat.”

3:36AM ET: Residents in and around Watertown should stay in their residence. They should not answer the door unless it is identified as a police officer, as tweeted from the Massachusetts State Patrol.

5:45AM: The Mayor of Massachusetts suspends all public transit service in the Boston area. The public is told not to congregate in groups, as residents in six Boston neighborhoods are told to remain in their home and stay off the streets.

5:52AM ET: Harvard University announces it is not opening due to the public safety concerns. MIT has already closed down.

6:39AM ET: The Associated Press announces that the suspects are Russian from Chechnya, and had lived in the United States for at least one year.

8:00AM ET: Boston police commissioner says all of Boston must stay in their homes as they search for the surviving suspect in the Marathon bombings.

“All of Boston is locked down as they try to find another suspect in the bombings on Patriots Day,” Glenn reiterated solemnly.

“Unless you look at Patriots Day as the shot heard around the world; unless you look at Patriots Day as the beginning of this country and people – Jihadists that wanted to make the statement of Patriots Day as the day to destroy the United States of America,” Glenn concluded. “These are not Tea Party members. These are Russian Chechen Jihadists.”

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
