Glenn’s chilling White House conversation

Much to his critic's surprise, Glenn was not afraid to speak out against the policies of George W. Bush during his presidency. Glenn was invited to the White House during in time at CNN to discuss some of the topics on which he was very critical of the Republican president.

One of these topics was the Middle East.

"He told me things that were going on in the military, and he told me why he was not saying those things. It was because of a promise that he had made to the Pentagon — that he would do it their way because they didn't want to make the soldiers into monsters. And he said if we really release all the information, that's exactly what the left will do," Glenn explained.

"I understood that," he added.

It was when President Bush started talking about what the next president would do that he was alarmed. The day Glenn was speaking to President Bush was the same day that Barack Obama made the claim that, if elected, he would just bomb Pakistan. President Bush told Glenn that no matter who was elected the policies would basically remain the same.

"George Bush said to me — he was standing in the Oval Office and he pointed to the Resolute desk — 'Any man who sits behind that desk, anybody, doesn't matter who it is, Hillary Clinton or anybody, when they sit behind that desk, they'll realize they have very few options.  Their hands are tied. Don't worry. Whoever sits in that chair will execute things pretty much the same way I have.'  And he smiled like, see?  We're all good. And I thought to myself, no, that's not good. That's really not good," Glenn recalled.

"First of all, I don't want it executed this way," he continued. "Second of all, who's tying the hands of the president? Who is tying the hands?"

After the news broke about how the NSA has been collecting private information from millions of American citizens, Glenn's conversation with George W. Bush was highlighted in his mind.

"I was thinking about what I wanted to tell you this morning on the NSA whistleblowers," Glenn said to his radio audience. "This is a story  we've been on for a long time. We've told you all these things, but we were called 'conspiracy theorists' by the mainstream media. And we had very brave whistleblowers come out and talk about this. And we've tried to report it in a responsible way. But that conversation came to my mind because off the air with some of these whistleblowers they have told me it will never be dismantled, Glenn."

They told Glenn that because of both the Republicans and the Democrats, it will never be dismantled. Both parties are doing it.

"Who is George Washington, and will stand up and say, 'I'm going to give up all of that power. I'm going to shut it down.' Who will do that?" Glenn asked. "And who will he got to support him? Because the NSA and everybody else has all of the information on all of them. You really think they're going to be able to shut it down? Anybody who tries will be destroyed. The whistleblowers we have talked to had guns pointed at their heads by our FBI for trying to tell you the truth."

"Thank goodness people are starting to listen."

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."
