Glenn willing to lose $54 million because ‘my word is worth more than $54 million’

Glenn passionately explained the importance of keeping your word and the value of your name over every other fleeting interest that may cross your path now and again. Glenn said he’s been to the lowest of lows and knows what it’s like to have lost everything - he’s not willing to go there again no matter what the financial cost. Are you willing to do the same?

The conversation started after looking at the actions of several progressive members of the GOP, including Grover Norquist and Karl Rove. Glenn criticized them specifically for their willingness to sacrifice conservative principles in order to achieve their immediate interests.

"This is what Karl Rove and Grover Norquist and everything else are doing. 'We have to win. We have to win. We have to win. Yeah, I know those are our principles, but we have to win.' You're going to lose both of them," Glenn said.

"Money doesn't talk. Money screams. Principles don't mean anything to anybody. They do to me. And if we all stand alone, then so be it. We all stand alone. If we lose this voice, then we lose this voice," Glenn said.

You know, I wrote an email on another topic this morning. On something that people have been saying, 'yeah, well, we can't do. We can't do. We can't do. Because, Glenn, the company could lose $54 million.' I wrote this morning, and I quote, 'my name and my good word is worth more than 54 fricking million dollars. I don't care.' When I was down on the ground as an alcoholic, I prayed, Lord, just give me my name back. That's all I want is my credibility. Please, nobody believes me because I've lied to everybody. All I want is my name back," Glenn said.

"He allowed me a second chance to get my name back. I am not going to violate that. Because I know what it means when you have nothing and no one believes you. I can live with being broke. I can live with not having money. I can live under a bridge and be fine as long as I have my integrity. I will not lose my integrity."

"Now, how many people feel that way?"

"Very few."

"Why?"

"Because very few have lost everything including their name. When you have zero and no one will cross the street to help you because you've been a dirtbag, that's when you change. That's when you know what truly is important to you. I know that. So if I lose this game pointing out what my principles are and trying to warn people, that's okay."

Glenn recounted a conversation he had off air earlier in the week about first and second principles (or principles and interests). C.S. Lewis wrote, "You can’t get second things by putting them first; you can get second things only by putting first things first." There are the "first things" you do which are for the greater good, and then there are the secondary things like money, survival, and shelter. Lewis said you can't skip the first things in order to get to the second things.

"America has to wake up. You either stand for something or you don't. The reason why we're losing everything all around the world is because the world knows we don't stand for anything," Glenn said.

"The reason why people are going over to join ISIS is because they do stand for something. It's crazy. It's deadly, but they stand for something. Jesus and Hitler had one thing and only one thing in common. They could both look a man in the eye and say, I can feed you. Jesus meant, I could feed you spiritually. I will change you fundamentally. You will be happy. You will be fulfilled. Eternally, I can feed you."

"Hitler focused on second principles. I will give you literal food. I just got to get rid of these people. So they violated their first principles of, we're all in this together. I don't kill other people so I can have their shoes so I can have their house, so I can eat. I don't kill other people to do that. To hell with that. I'm going with him because I need food."

"And what happened? Jesus won. There are 2 billion people who are Christians. And a handful of Nazis."

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.
