Glenn: You were born to do incredible work

As you may have heard, Glenn welcomed his first grandchild into the world yesterday - beautiful baby girl named Lorelai Rose DiDonato. On radio this morning, Glenn reflected on the experience of bringing a child into the world and the incredible joy and optimism that comes along with it.

"I got to tell you, yesterday was the birth of my granddaughter who is beautiful,” Glenn said. “She was laughing, and she was smiling. And she's perfect in every way. She's perfect.”

Glenn explained that he was talking to a friend recently who has been really down on his luck. He has been out of work, and he is discouraged. But Glenn decided it was time to change the tone of the conversation from despair to hope.

“I said to him, ‘Flip this around. Congratulations!’ He said, ‘What?’ I said, ‘Congratulations. You weren't happy there anyway. You weren't happy. That's not what you wanted to do. You now have the opportunity to start your life over again. The universe or God, whatever you want to call it, has just handed you this opportunity to be the authentic you, to reach inside of yourself and really be you,’” Glenn explained. “He's always wanted to be in business for himself. He's got dreams, aspirations. Go do them. Now is the chance to do them because everybody else is going to be cookie cutter. You are going to go to another job, live in fear of losing that job, and it will be another job you don't want. Take off your mask.”

While Glenn would not necessarily describe himself as a Marianne Williamson fan, he did find great truth in a quote he was recently sent of hers.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

“I watched my grandchild yesterday. May I learn from her what it is like to be childlike again. We surrounded my daughter's bed yesterday and held hands as a family, and we prayed. We gave glory to the creator of the universe and gave Him grateful thanks for entrusting this little child to us and begged for his strength to raise her back to Him,” Glenn said. “And in that prayer, I begged the Lord: I know you sent her to us for a reason, and I know she has much to teach us. Please, let us be humble enough to see the lessons that come from her. She's a powerful spirit. Every child that is born today is born for a reason. They have something inside of them they are supposed to do, and it is important work.”

“It's easy to think that about your children. Start thinking about that with you because you were born for some incredible work,” he concluded. “I don't know what it is, but you were supposed to do something. Free yourself of fear and do it. Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

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."
