‘You’re going to hear me scream’: Montel Williams continues to sound the alarm on the VA scandal

Montel Williams once again joined Glenn this morning to discuss the ever-growing VA scandal. As Williams explained, the horrendous conditions our veterans are facing that has seen at least several dozen die while waiting for care are not going to change simply because President Obama nominated a new VA secretary. Now is not the time to back down, and both Glenn and Williams challenged the audience to keep people informed about this crisis.

It is no secret that Glenn and Williams would be considered strange bedfellows. Williams explained he was recently approached in an airport by two individuals who had heard him speaking on Glenn’s show and wanted to thank Williams for his tireless work.

“I was in the airport, and in the span of two minutes – I’m not kidding you – one guy came up to me, stopped me for a second, and he said, ‘I really want to thank you for what you're doing for vets. I heard you on Glenn Beck, and, you know what, I don't know what drew to be on his show, but when I heard about you being on this show, I tuned in to hear what you had to say,’” Williams said. “Another guy came up to me [and said], ‘I heard you on Glenn, and you don't give up.’”

Williams has faced a good deal of backlash for appearing on Glenn’s radio and television shows to discuss the VA scandal, but he has publically thanked Glenn for his willingness to give him time to talk about the issue.

“I've had others in the non-conservative, the other media, saying to me, ‘I don't know why you're talking to Glenn.’ ‘Why are you talking to Glenn?’” Williams said. “It's not because you're the only person that wants to talk to me. It's because I think we are showing the rest of the country that no matter what your politics are, when it comes to the politics of those who allow us the freedom we have, we have to put down our differences and come together to solve these problems.”

Just last week, a veteran died in an Albuquerque, New Mexico Veteran Affairs hospital cafeteria. The man was just 500-yards away from an emergency room, but instead of rushing to get him assistance after he collapsed, an ambulance was called. In the 30 minutes it took for an ambulance to arrive, the man died.

“What happened in Albuquerque, this is absolutely ridiculous,” Williams said. “I've been watching the news. Just because we put a man's name up as the future VA secretary… all of a sudden everybody thinks their problems are solved. The problem is not solved.”

Ultimately, Williams was clear that this is not an ideological issue. This is an issue of doing what is right for the people that risked their lives for our freedom. Williams intends on holding Washington’s feet to the fire as the election season ramps up, and he asked others to do the same.

“I voted Republican until I got out of the military. I vote independently now. I'm not a Democrat, and I never will be. And I'll never be a Republican ever again,” Williams said. “But I will tell you this, what I want to do this November is… make sure that anybody who voted against or did not vote for something for our veterans right now, I'm going to hold them accountable. You're going to hear me scream.”

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."
