More ridiculous testimony from the Trayvon Martin trial

Those hoping George Zimmerman gets a harsh sentence cannot be thrilled with how testimony is going for the prosecution’s star witness, Rachel Jeantel. Jeantel was the last person to speak to Trayvon Martin before his death. Glenn and Pat reacted to the latest nonsense on radio today.

Yesterday, Glenn read some of the tweets that have magically disappeared from Jeantel’s Twitter account that don’t paint the young woman in a particularly favorable light. In addition, during her testimony yesterday, there was an uncomfortable moment when Jeantel was forced to admit she was unable to read the letter she allegedly wrote because it was written in cursive – and she can’t read cursive.

“She supposedly wrote this letter to Trayvon's mother saying, you know, I was on the phone with him and I know what happened and I heard it all, but when asked to read it on the stand, she couldn't,” Glenn explained. “The prosecutor said, ‘Why not?’ And she said, ‘Well, I can't read cursive handwriting.’ Now, she had already testified that… that was her letter, she wrote it. Can you write cursively but not read it?  How does that work out? It wasn't her letter. She didn't write it.”

The downward spiral continued when the prosecution tried to cover up the racially charged nature of the “creepy white cracker” comment Jeantel testified Martin said to her while they were on the phone that fateful day by claiming Jeantel does not fully understand the language.

Here is a sampling of the questioning from the defense yesterday:

ATTORNEY:  Trayvon Martin saying creepy ass cracker and using the N word, that people like ‑ people speak like that in your culture. Did you hear that?

JEANTEL:  Yes, sir.

ATTORNEY:  Well, what culture is that, where people describe other people as creepy ass crackers?

JEANTEL:  Pervert.

ATTORNEY:  I'm sorry? Do you understand what I mean by the culture, the culture that you were raised in, the culture that ‑

JEANTEL:  The area I was raised, you're saying to say?

ATTORNEY:  Right. I'll say it this way:  The people that you live around and with call white people creepy ass crackers?

JEANTEL:  Not creepy but cracker, yeah.

ATTORNEY:  So the creepy is the pervert part that you were talking about?

JEANTEL:  No.

ATTORNEY:  So forget that for a second. You're saying that the culture that you live in, in your community people call ‑ people there call white people crackers?

JEANTEL:  Yes, sir.

ATTORNEY:  And do they use the N word regularly?

JEANTEL:  Yes, sir.

ATTORNEY:  And you're saying so did Trayvon Martin? Trayvon Martin referred to white people as crackers, correct?

JEANTEL:  I don't recall, sir.

“Now there's a black culture,” Pat asked. “And, by the way, it's the same culture, apparently, that the President spoke of in Dreams From My Father, where he mentioned the culture over and over and over again.”

“Listen to that. Listen to that. Let's listen to this logic here,” Glenn continued. “Cracker is not a problem. It's just part of my culture. It's not a problem. It's not racist. That's what she said. It's not a racial slur. It's not racist. It's part of my culture. Okay… What kind of culture is that that says that creepy crackers? Well, it's a repulsive one. It's a repulsive one, yes.”

Considering Jeantel was once considered a star witness for the prosecution, her credibility (or lack there of) could quickly become an issue. Many on the left have come out against those who are questioning the culture and character of Jeantel – claiming those who are looking into her background are trying to ‘smear’ her. And yet, when you are reading someone’s own words – as is the case when Glenn read Jeantel’s tweets and testimony – the only person smearing Jeantel is herself.

“So let's put [Trayvon] into perspective on who he was,” Glenn said. “That's a culture that they should be getting away from. Isn't it? That's a culture we should be getting away from. That is a culture that is destroying people like Paula Deen for engaging in that culture 20 years ago. And, yet, we're smearing Jeantel. No, we're not. We're playing her words and showing you what her culture is.”

“And if you don't like looking at the transparency and seeing what your culture is, well, then maybe you've got a problem and that's what this attorney did. He didn't bully her. He made her look into the water. He made her look into the mirror,” he continued. “What does that mean for the beloved Trayvon Martin? What will that mean if I then say, ‘Yes, Trayvon was part of that culture, he did say that thing’? She knows. She knows the life she's living is a lie. She knows that her culture is the underbelly of what culture should be. She knows it. Otherwise, she would have been proud to answer that question, but she wasn't.”

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."
