This is the conversation every parent needs to have with their kids

Everyone knows that Glenn isn't always the most fun person to be around. After all, this is a guy who spends his free time studying World War 2 and the rise of a caliphate in the Middle East. Who doesn't want to be around that all the time? (Please, note the sarcasm). Anyway, what was a recent dinner like between Glenn and his daughter Hannah? And why is this the conversation you need to be having with your own kids?

Below is an edited transcript of this segment

I was having dinner with my kids, I think it was last Sunday and, you know, you don't always want to have dinner at my house. It's not always a pleasant experience. I know it's hard to believe. It's not always a pleasant experience. Call 'em crazy.

And my children know because my daughter Hannah started, along with Mary, started to track my predictions when they were young. They wanted to see if dad was right. And they started when any I was in music radio, and I would say, this is going to be the next hit, and they're going to release this one and this one and this one. And they started doing it with Britney Spears records, believe it or not. And then they started watching all the other things I would say would come, and they would track them, and unbeknownst to me, until they were like 16.

And then when I said, look, I don't know if you guys believe me. This is when we're getting ready to go to FOX. And I said, 'I have to have a family meeting. Do you believe what I say is coming to pass because this is going to change all of our lives and not necessarily for the better? Do you believe it?'

And that's when my girls told me: 'Yes, dad. We believe you. We've been tracking you since we were little. Yes. '

They didn't tell me that.

So a couple of weeks ago, last week or the week before, we were having dinner on Sunday, and we all get together as a family and we're all sitting around talking, and my daughter Hannah said:

Hannah: So, dad.

Glenn: Yes.

Hannah: I got to talk to you about ISIS and what's happening here.

Glenn: Okay.

Hannah: You said the other day that it's going to be too late soon.

Glenn: Yes.

Hannah: What exactly does that mean?

Now, she said it like that because the undercurrent of the conversation, the unspoken words, were 'I don't know if I really want you to tell me the answer'. And I said to her what I would say to you now:

Glenn: Honey, I did my best. I did my best to warn. I did everything I could. But there were too many people asleep and too many that don't want to see this. And so what I'm telling you now is the world is about to change. I don't know when. But it's about to change.

Hannah (pause): Right. And that's the part I would like you to clarify.

Glenn: I don't know if I can. I just know it's not good on how things are going to change, but how we deal with it has to be good. I just know that we're not all going to be walking around the way we are now feeling as secure as we do now, having the things that we have now. Life, as we know it, this age, is about to pass. A new one is about to dawn. How we all react as a society is going to set the course for the next chapter.

If we pull together, if we stand as one, if we forget about our individual religion and start living our individual faith, and that as Ben Franklin used call the American religion, there is a God. He is going to judge us. The best way to serve him is to serve your fellow man.

If we start to do the right thing and actually live what we are learning in church or synagogue or on the mountaintop and we start to unite and be good to one another and help one another, we're going to make it and be fine.

I took my kids four years ago to Auschwitz, and I told them: Now is the time to decide who we are going to be. The world goes insane, who are we going to be? Are we going to be the Oskar Schindlers? Are we going to be the righteous among the nations? We met one, Paullina, who saved as a kid, who saved Jews, her and her family. Who are we going to be when the time comes? The time is almost here. So who are we going to be?

That's the conversations that we should be having with our families.

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."
