SCANDAL WEEK DAY 1: The NSA

Several full blown scandals have bombarded the Obama administration in the past few weeks alone, building on an already impressive list of past scandals. So much has happened recently that one might easily forget about Operation Fast & Furious, the dozens of spectacular green ‘investment’ failures like Solyndra, or even garden variety intimidation like Vice President Biden forcing a veteran ABC news reporter into a storage closet for more than an hour.

It’s basically a full-time job to keep track of all the corruption in this administration, and since we know you are far too busy to pick up a second job chronicling Obama’s lies & abuses, we will attempt to do it for you this week on GlennBeck.com. 

DAY 1: Domestic spying, NSA

When President Obama told graduating students to dismiss the voices who warn of government tyranny, he did so knowing full well that just days earlier his administration had obtained a secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over all call data on millions of regular Americans. Not calls from terrorists, but all call logs “between the United States and abroad” or “wholly within the United States” must be handed over to the NSA, no matter what the content of the calls.

But that was just the beginning. Here’s a timeline with all the key dates and information you need to know (to date) on the NSA scandal:

  • June 5, 2013: The Guardian runs story revealing the NSA is collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily.

  • June 6, 2013: The Washington Post runs story revealing both the U.S. & the British are intelligence mining data from nine U.S. Internet companies in a very broad & very secret program.

  • June 10, 2013: U.S. ‘disappointed’ to learn Hong Kong allowed Snowden to leave country, asks Russia to extradite him.

  • June 23, 2013: Surprise! Former Facebook security officer joins NSA.

  • June 28, 2013: Feds previewed NSA leaks before Guardian printed story, but didn’t raise any security concerns about content of NSA leaks, seemingly contradicting Boehner & Obama’s security concerns.

  • June 29, 2013: Report: NSA technology designed to ‘destroy privacy’ can store one billion cell phone calls every single day.

  • June 30, 2013: The new cold war? NSA bugged European Union offices.

  • July 5, 2013: Bolivian president threatens to close U.S. Embassy after Snowden plane incident.

  • July 5, 2013: Venezuela & Nicaragua offer asylum to Snowden.

  • July 8, 2013: Snowden interview: he totally predicted exactly how U.S. would respond to his whistleblowing.

  • July 14, 2013: Snowden has docs containing an ‘instruction manual’ detailing inner workings of the NSA.

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."
