Awwww! Charles Manson got a girlfriend

We have a saying around the Mercury Studios - love is contagious. And it looks like Charles Manson and a really misguided young lady have caught the fever! That's right, America's best known psychopath Charles Manson has found love and is getting married. If it can happen to him, it truly can happen to anyone!

The guys reacted to the news on radio this morning:

FOX News reported:

Mass murderer Charles Manson has gotten a license to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison.

The Kings County marriage license, viewed Monday by The Associated Press, was issued Nov. 7 for the 80-year-old Manson and Afton Elaine Burton, who left her Midwestern home nine years ago and moved to Corcoran, California — the site of the prison — to be near Manson. She maintains several websites advocating Manson's innocence.

The license does not specify a wedding date and indicates the couple has 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.

"It's creepy weird. She moved there to be with him when she was 19 years old. She has to be very disturbed," Glenn said. " He's missing teeth. He has the swastika on his forehead. He's not a good-looking man. He's one of the men that make me feel good about myself."

Glenn said that the story reminds him of an old Irish saying, where one man comes upon another man and asks for directions.

"You know, there's this Irish tale or saying, and a visitor is walking down the street. In the farm country of Ireland. And he comes across a farmer. And he says, hey, can you help me? I'm lost and I need to get back right back on track."

"The farmer says, sure. Where you headed?"

"The visitor tells him. The farmer sits there for a while and scratches his face and looks down at the dirt and then looks up at the sky and then looks at the guy and says, yeah, if that's where you're going, I wouldn't start from here."

"And I love that story because that's the way life is. If that's where you're headed, you can't get there from here. But you have to. And I think the problem is, is that families will look at somebody like this, and you'll say, I just love her so much. We have to give her a chance. We got to do this. People just know. You know what's the right thing to do. You just do, but you dismiss it all the time. And it's because you're like, no, we got to get back on track."

"No. Those and it's have been passed, you're not going to go back that way. It's a completely different route now. I know you're standing out in the middle of the field, and I know where you want to go, and you're right, you shouldn't start from here. But you got to shed the past. Shed what you thought you knew and I'll show you a completely new path. Unfortunately, I think too many of us we look at the things going on in life, and we look at people in our life, and we know what the right thing to do is, we just don't want to accept it."

"I think if you're her dad, you're looking at that like, I can't. Dad, I got it.  I get it.  But you got to listen to common sense.  She's checked out.  She has checked out.  And you have to do the right thing for the rest of your family.  That would be so hard, wouldn't it?  Imagine your daughter, that would be so hard."

The guys wondered what the rest of this woman's life looks like after making headlines as the wife of Charles Manson. Who would hire her? Who would want to associate with her?

"What happens after?  Obviously, he's going to die in prison at some point in the near future.  She's going to be 35, 37 years old. now widowed from a mass murderer.  What does the rest of her life look like?" Stu asked.

 

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."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
