‘You want a revolution?’ Glenn explains why your most powerful weapon is your right to vote

Glenn spent a large portion of this morning’s radio program discussing the standoff in Nevada between the federal government and the Bundy family. Glenn advocated for a peaceful resolution to this tense situation.

“I will tell you that I do believe that the federal government does want to put ranchers out of business… I do believe these things are happening, and it's called Agenda 21. We wrote a book on it. I am fully clear on what the federal government wants to do,” Glenn said. “With that being said, no matter how clear I am on these things, the answer is not violence.”

Glenn spoke of the power and importance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Pledge of Nonviolence, which was signed by those who marched alongside him in 1963. The pledge reads:

1. As you prepare to march meditate on the life and teachings of Jesus

2. Remember the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation – not victory.

3. Walk and talk in the manner of love; for God is love.

4. Pray daily to be used by God that all men and women might be free.

5. Sacrifice personal wishes that all might be free.

6. Observe with friend and foes the ordinary rules of courtesy.

7. Perform regular service for others and the world.

8. Refrain from violence of fist, tongue and heart.

9. Strive to be in good spiritual and bodily health.

10. Follow the directions of the movement leaders and of the captains on demonstrations.

But several listeners called in this morning to explain that while they too do not advocate violence, they are unclear how much more Americans are supposed to take. It is easy to feel powerless, and yet, Glenn reminded his audience that 2014 offers a unique opportunity to kick-start a different type of revolution - a non-violent one rooted in principle.

There are no two ways about it: A lot of bad things are going on in this country right now.

Are things happening that are very bad? Yes. Are they killing people with drones? Yes. Are they spying on you? Yes. Are they using the I.R.S. to harass you? Yes. Are they trying to put ranchers out of business? Yes,” Glenn said. “Yes, they're doing all of those things. And all of those things are bad. And all of those things we have to stand up against.”

But we must not forget the power we have to affect change. With the 2014 midterm elections just around the corner and a bevy of strong candidates running in tight races around the country, this is the time to get involved and really make an impact.

“May I remind you: We do have representation. We do have people that are coming up for election in the next 60 days,” Glenn said. “You want to do something? Put your gun down. Go grab some signs. Go grab some information and go door to door in Kentucky and get Mitch McConnell out. Go door to door in South Carolina and get Lindsay Graham out. You want to make a difference? That is a way. You want a revolution? There's your revolution... Everything hasn't been exhausted by any stretch of the imagination.”

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."
