Chris Kyle's killer found guilt - here's how Glenn reacted to the verdict

Eddie Ray Routh was found guilty Tuesday night of capital murder last night in the killing of 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. He will spend the rest of his life in prison. After reading the news, Glenn wondered if the sentence truly fit the crime.

Last night, as I was going to bed, my wife said to me, there's a verdict in the "American Sniper" trial. I held my breath for a second, waiting to hear what that might be, no longer really believing that justice in America exists. Guilty. Guilty. However, life in prison without parole may not be enough for Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield's killer, but at least it's not the tragedy of justice we saw go to the Kyle family in the Jesse Ventura case. Last night I wrote on Facebook that I was a little tired and a little grumpy and maybe I shouldn't be thinking out loud, but I want to know what the real motive of the killing really was. If he's insane, he should be hospitalized, not imprisoned, but I don't believe he suffered any kind of PTSD. He didn't see any action at all, and in fact, if he has PTSD, I have watched two seasons of the "Walking Dead". I might have it too. So why is it that he killed these guys?

The president could come out and say maybe it was workplace violence. I would just like the news occasionally to make sense and to tell us really what is happening in the world. I know that Hillary Clinton could come out and say what difference does it make. We've got two people dead now. What difference does it make if he was suffering from PTSD or maybe he was just a guy walking down the street that just decided to go kill some Americans. What difference does it make?

Maybe the president could come out and explain that Chris and Chad were just some random folks that were killed. I don't know what the jury knows. I accept their verdict. I have a feeling he's not going to do well in prison. I just wish somebody cared enough about our soldiers and their families and the truth to see that justice is really served and answers are finally had. Truth and justice used to be the American way. I'm not holding my breath. I know the president just hates to comment on local stories. I know he hates to comment on local shootings, you know, before a verdict comes out, but now that it's out, maybe, just maybe, the president could call the wife of one of America's greatest warriors and offer some sort of heartfelt thanks on behalf of a grateful nation. Maybe he could do that.

My guess is he's too busy today apologizing for something Americans have done, apologizing to the Muslim world, maybe he's going took busy today condemning Christians. I know he's got a full schedule of betraying Israel. He also has to take over the Internet sometime today, but maybe on the back nine at some point, he could pop a text message her way. After all, he did insist that he had his own private BlackBerry that we all spent a fortune securing, so he could do things like that.

One other note on this: Nobody has talked about the family of the killer either, and if we do admire the Amish and the way they handled things, we should also be praying for the family of the killer and thinking about them today, for the hell that they have gone through and pray for their healing as well. No one is left untouched by this awful thing called war that I don't even know what it's about anymore.

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."
