Muslim reformer says this could be the key to stopping terrorism

On last night's TV show, Glenn welcomed Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American-Islamic Forum for Democracy. The discussion centered around the problem of political Islam, something he has been trying to stop. Jasser himself is a Muslim believes it's critical to call radicals like ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood "Islamic extremists", not just "extremists" and "violent extremists". Why?

Dr. Jasser: When you say why moderate voices can’t speak up, when you have foundations in the tens of the millions, like the Clinton Foundation, that accepts foreign donations, and President Clinton says oh, it’s not a big deal, it is a big deal. I’m proud of the fact that our organization doesn’t take foreign money, because that would make me beholden to the Mafia that is suppressing free speech for reform in Islam. People like Grover, the Clinton Foundation, and others, that sort of say 'well, the Islamists, we won’t use even that term,' it obstructs me, it prevents reform, and the Islamists dominate the narrative.

Glenn: Okay, why does it obstruct you? Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton, taking all that money, and she said everybody knows there’s nobody that loves, you know, or stands for women’s rights more than me. Why does it actually…why is that a lie?

Dr. Jasser: Because if there’s no problem in Islam or Islamism, it’s just about violent extremism as the government wants to call it, I don’t have any relevance. You might as well talk to Buddhists and Christians and atheists about the problem, because it’s all about Whac-a-Mole for the terrorists. If it’s about Islamic reform, then you have to bring to the table Muslims, and that’s the cognitive dissonance. The president at his White House, you know, shindig a couple weeks ago said oh, we have Muslims here because we need them to help us, and yet it’s not about Islam. So, why were you calling in Muslims? So, this is the issue. Al Jazeera outlaws the use of the term Islamist because they realize if we defeat political Islam and the concept of all Islamic states, the Qatari government which funds Al Jazeera, the Saudis, will lose power to the people and free movements.

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."
