Is this America’s Sumner moment?

Right now, we're playing out the same patterns that have occurred throughout history: we will follow whoever will give us stability. Time and time again, people have ignored evil and jump through crazy hoops in order to "keep their stuff".

During the radio show today, Glenn told the story of Charles Sumner, an abolitionist Senator who was attacked on the Senate floor by pro-slavery rival Congressman Preston Brooks. Glenn said that Sumner and his allies were the Tea Party of the day.

Brooks only received a fine for the attack and no jail time, and in the South was cheered for his actions. He ended up resigning his seat in the House of Representatives.

Glenn said that back during the Civil War and the end of slavery, the people in the South were willing to do anything in order to maintain their property. As Glenn put it, they would do anything to "keep their stuff".

Today, Glenn said people are doing the same thing. They are being told by the government that if we don't support the rebels in the Syria the region will be destabilized, so people go along with it so they "keep their stuff" and maintain stability.

Glenn said that it doesn't make sense the United States would suddenly find itself at the "red line" with the Syrian government after 98,000 have already been killed in the war because a hundred people were attacked with a chemical weapon.

"Now, I want you to understand, 98,000 people have been killed by Assad. 98,000 people. Why did that happen? That happened because the Middle East went unstable. Why did that happen? Because somebody saw a guy set himself on fire in Tunisia, then they saw a little thing in Egypt happen, the Arab spring, then it went to Algeria and Libya. Then the people in Syria said well, we have a dictator too. Maybe we should stand up, because this is the way of the world," Glenn said.

Glenn warned that the same intelligence people who said Benghazi was a spontaneous uprising resulting from a YouTube video are the same ones saying Syria used chemical weapons.

"They know that it was a YouTube video and we should listen to them and go give arms and send our troops to work with the people who are eating others on the battlefield. Why? Because we want our stuff," Glenn said.

Why did people in the South cheer on Sumner? "Because they wanted their stuff," Glenn said. "People were property. What the argument was in the south was, if you get rid of slaves, we're wiped out economically. We've not nothing economically your life as you know it is over. And so people were willing to jump through any crazy hoops to be able to keep their stuff."

"Man's story always repeats itself. We are repeating it again. We are giving arms to cannibals. Why? Because were being told by our government, our leaders, who we should not trust, we are being told that if this falls apart, then all your stuff a gone."

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."
