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.”

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
