What has happened to American's ability to endure?

Last night when he got into D.C. last night for his speech, Glenn saw two stories on TheBlaze that affected him deeply and brought to mind a conversation he had with his kids about the nature of endurance. In one story, a woman shot a man in what could have been self-defense, but then she ended up taking out her cell phone and taking a picture of the body before driving off. And then in another, a man was so fed up with his wife’s temper tantrums he decided to secretly videotape her with his cell phone. What is happening in America?

"Last night I saw on the front page of TheBlaze, I saw two stories that really impacted me in a way that I don't know if I've been impacted this way, this deeply before. There are two stories on the front page of TheBlaze," Glenn said.

"One is a woman at a gas station in Houston who has an argument with a man, they're not even sure if they knew each other. They're looking now for witnesses that were close to find out exactly what happened. But a woman is grabbed at a gas station and she kind of shakes him off and she goes in and she grabs a rifle and she points this rifle at this guy, and they're just talking. And nobody really knows what happened. And then she shoots him in the chest. He dies. She takes out her cellphone, takes a picture of his dead body, gets into her car and leaves. What the hell is that?"

Watch video of the incident below. The woman claims the man, Louis Daniel, was making unwanted sexual advances and she feared for her life. She did not wait for the police to arrive, according to TheBlaze:

"Then there was another story," Glenn said, "There's this woman in the car and the headline is Man uploads wife's tirade and files for divorce. And I'm ‑‑ I don't know why I even clicked on the story because it just doesn't even sound interesting."

"I click on it, and I start watching this woman," he continued, "and it's probably midnight and I click on the story and I just want to see what it is real quick, and this woman is sitting in a truck and the guy is filming her and they're driving. And she starts saying, take me to the lake. I want to go to the lake. I just want to go with a boat to the lake. Why? And he says, honey, I've got to take care of my truck. I've got to ‑‑ all I want to do today is I want to clean my truck and I've got to, I don't know, rotate the tires or something. 'It's always about you!'"

"And she just goes crazy. And she starts acting like a 2‑year‑old and it is so deeply disturbing because, quite honestly, it says something about parenting. We have parented people who aren't even able to function anymore in our society. We have parented a group," he said, "but some of us have parented, some of us are still parenting, but our parents so lost track of what's real. And I'm sorry, Little Miss Princess, but you don't always get your way. Life doesn't always work out the way you thought it would."

"Best thing that we ever did I think as a family for our older kids is we put values and principles on our chairs at our kitchen table, and there were about eight chairs at this table and each one, one said hope on the back, one said charity, one said honesty. And sometimes, you know, if one of the kids was having a bad day, you know, I'd say, 'You know what? You need to sit in the self‑control chair. You need to sit in the honesty chair.' And sometimes I would say it to myself: I need to sit in the honesty chair today. And there was one value that we wanted to put. We had the kids decide with us what are the values that are ‑‑ that we want, what are the ‑‑ what are the things that are important in life, and there was one and it was endurance. And my kids fought against it: 'Dad, you always make life sound like it's such a drudgery! No, endurance doesn't belong here!' And I said, yes, it does. 'Dad, man, you don't have to endure life.' Yes, you do."

"Much of your life, you will just have to get up in the day and endure until you can put your head on the pillow that night. Most of life is just endure 'til the end, just endure this. You think I ‑‑ and this wasn't popular. 'Do you think I wanted to go to all of your dance recitals? There were a lot of those things I just had to endure. And I did it with grace and a smile. I wanted to kill myself every time.' They're like, 'I've got another recital. I'm in a new play.' 'Oh, you've got to be kidding me. That's great.'"

"Endurance. Nobody can endure anymore. Everybody's special. Everybody gets their own way. Life has to be fair. Everybody has to have their portion. 'This is what I was promised.' You're not promised anything! Nothing! Forget about the government. If the government goes away tomorrow, who's making you promises?"

"Hutch said last night on TV, he said, 'Glenn, we just have to get people to ‑‑ just have to get people to realize that when they're hungry, I guess they will work.' He was making great points on we've got to cut welfare. We have to cut this giant state and we have to require people to work. And I got so frustrated, I said to him, 'Hutch, at what point do you think people are going to work?' 'Well, if they're hungry enough.' If they're hungry enough somebody is going to come and say, 'You know why you're hungry? Because those people over there, they have all your stuff and they don't want you to eat.' And they'll organize and they'll kill that person for that food! Our society has completely broken down. And if you don't see the handwriting on the wall, I ‑‑ it's probably because you're watching ‑‑ did you hear about the new prince that was born yesterday?"

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.
