Glenn: We are in a country that no longer recognizes the truth

In the days following the Boston Marathon we all watched the utter failure of the media to report factual, accurate, and pertinent information. We witnessed the cover up of important evidence by both the government and press – from the alleged deportation of the Saudi national to the radical underpinnings of the Tzarnaev brothers. And now we are inundated with countless conspiracy theories and falsities about the bombings that disrespect those affected by the horrific event.

Sadly, such behavior is nothing new. We have seen these practices in the aftermath of September 11, Fort Hood, Benghazi, Newtown – the list goes on and on. We no longer place the necessary emphasis on truth, and as a nation, we have collectively lowered our standards to the point where disinformation can easily flood airways, newspapers, and websites.

“Well, here we are, in a country now filled with people that can't recognize the truth at all,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “We're filled with a country that would rather eat each other than actually listen to reason. There is no such thing as common sense anything, anymore. There's no such thing as reason anymore. We are being separated by conspiracy theories, by disinformation, out‑and‑out lies, money, power.”

In the aftermath of an event like Boston, we expect to see a period of unity and national pride. But there has been very little harmony over the course of the last week.

“When you talk about the Boston marathon – something that should have brought us together, something that we've never seen before in the streets of America,” Glenn said. “We have never seen people blown up in our streets like they blow them up in the Middle East. We've never seen that. We've never seen legs and arms blown off in the streets. And now, and now we don't even know what's true. Now we have no idea. Now we have a president and a press willing to go along with it, saying that ‘this is just religious extremism, this is just a problem with religion; this has nothing to do with Islamic extremism. Islamic extremism doesn't exist. These were religious extremists.’”

The media has proven time and time again that it is no longer capable of performing its most basic duty: providing the public with the best, most factual information it possibly can.

“I'm wondering when America is going to turn it off.  When America is going to not feel relief when you watch this stuff on television and so you say ‘I'm not going to watch it anymore,’ and I highly recommend it,” Glenn said. “I do not recommend that you unplug. You have to know what's going on. You have to be involved. But I highly recommend you stop listening to the merchants of disinformation, out‑and‑out lies.”

“I'm sorry,” he continued. “I wish we could be farther along on TheBlaze. I wish there were others that would join us. I wish there were those who had a sense of time, that had a sense of history, that had a sense of what's worth fighting for, what's worth standing for, what's worth dying for.”

Similarly, we now have a government no longer seems to respect its job of being of the people, by the people. “So America, you are going to two places. You've got two choices,” Glenn said. “You've got the people who are in bed with big brother and are telling you things that you know are not true.”

“No, you see, see, America, it's really not that hard to figure out what's conspiracy and what's not. You look at the patterns of people,” Glenn explained. “Is this pattern of this government to take responsibility, to tell you the truth on what's really going on, or is the pattern of this government to tell you, ‘You've got to sign it before you figure out what's in it.’ Is the pattern of this government to throw people under the bus that do not agree with them, while they hide the things that they've really done?”

There are certainly no easy answers to the problems that face America today. There has been a breach of trust on the part of both the government and the media that will be hard to reverse. But ultimately it will be up to the American people to put their differences aside and decide just how important the truth is. In turn, they will also have to be diligent in parsing out the disinformation that exists.

“You're going to have to decide,” Glenn concluded. “I've made my decision, and I would suggest that we stop arguing with each other and we find people that maybe we disagree with, but we can still see the light of day. We can still see the light of truth. We can still see who we are and what the truth is of what happens to our country if we fly apart and we don't trust anything. We've got to trust something. And that something has to be based in fact and has to be based in common sense.”

 

 

 

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.
