'They're not expecting us to talk to each other': Glenn talks about his lunch with Mark Cuban

On Friday, Glenn welcomed Dallas Mavericks owner and businessman Mark Cuban to Mercury Studios for lunch. In the past, Cuban has described himself as an “independent leaning to libertarian,” and while he and Glenn did not see eye-to-eye on everything, they found common ground. On radio this morning, Glenn shared details of his conversation with Cuban and explained why the best thing we can do is simply talk to one another.

One of things Glenn was most surprised to learn about Cuban was his stance on healthcare. While Cuban has spoken openly about his desire to see less government – not more – he is an advocate for a single payer system.

“I had lunch with Mark Cuban on Friday. Spent two hours with him. One of the first things he said to me was, ‘You and I disagree on an awful lot, especially where the President is concerned.’ And I said, ‘Oh, I thought you were a libertarian.’ He said, ‘I am,’” Glenn explained. “And then he talked to me about how he's for universal health care, and he's been to the White House several times and talked to the President… He's very well thought out on these things. [But] I disagree with almost everything that he said.”

When it comes to the NSA and government surveillance, however, Cuban seemed to have a much more libertarian view.

“It was such a bizarre meeting because I really was thrown. I really had heard that he was much more of a small government guy. He's not,” Glenn said. “But when it comes to the NSA, I said, ‘So you're for the NSA spying, then.’ He says, ‘Oh, my gosh. Absolutely not.’ This must be where he deems himself libertarian… He is a guy you could stand with on surveillance… He's also very strong on business.”

Cuban agreed to spend an hour with Glenn on air sometime in the near future, which promises to be a very interesting conversation. In addition to his support of universal healthcare, Cuban also told Glenn he favors the $15 an hour minimum wage recently passed in Seattle.

As Glenn explained, there are a lot of things he and Cuban disagree on, but dismissing someone because opposing viewpoints is playing right into the progressives' hand. They are banking on the fact that people will never actually take the time to have a conversation with one another and realize the common ground they share.

“Now, this is really radical thinking. But it is the thinking that they're not expecting. It is the thinking that that they haven't prepared for,” Glenn said. “Look at Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck. We all know the players that try to keep us apart… What did they assume we would never do? They assumed that we would be so arrogant that we would never talk to one another, find out the truth, and compare notes.”

The same can be said of all Americans.

“They're not expecting Americans to start reaching out and talking to one another. They're expecting Americans to grab their guns and become violent that… That will not work,” Glenn concluded. “So the point is… we could just be against Mark Cuban… or I could say, ‘Mark Cuban is a friend with the NSA’… Let's start making friends. Let's start looking for strange bedfellows that we can unite with. We've got to stop the division.”

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."
