Glenn to college students: 'You have all the power'

Glenn welcomed a number of college students to the Dallas studios Monday night for some unorthodox teaching. While the conversation took a number of different turns, they all came back to the next generations responsibility to restore man’s freedom. For the first time in history, people are empowered to directly connect with one another regardless of geographic location. It is cheap and easy to make your voice heard. But with that power comes the responsibility to use it wisely. Here’s what Glenn wants every college student to understand.

Glenn: It used to be a big deal to make a long-distance phone call. When I was a kid, I remember getting a person-to-person long-distance phone call. You know what that is? That’s when you would call the operator. Because it was so expensive, I didn’t want to pay for that call unless I got somebody on the phone that I was looking for. So, I would call the operator and say I’m trying to call Peter in Texas. The operator would say okay, hold please. Then they would find Peter, get him on the phone, and they’d say, “Peter, Glenn, Glenn, Peter. You’re connected.” And then they charge you for it. That’s how crazy things were.

Now, you can FaceTime anybody around the world.

With Periscope, you are the journalist. I don’t need CBS News to go out with film canisters. When I was your age, they used to have to go out with film canisters, have somebody there, film it, go into a dark room, develop it, edit it, put it on, so we had a 5:30 newscast. That’s insane. You have all the power, and you know it, and so do the people that want to push this scale that way.

When you look at Facebook, and it says post, replace that in your mind, with publish. You are Thomas Paine. You’re a publisher now. You are somebody who can say your views to anyone in the world. All men are created equal. It doesn’t mean all men have something equal to say. So, it’s going to depend on whether people like your opinion and you can figure out exactly the best way to present your opinion to get more people to watch or to listen or to read, but you’re a publisher. You’re a videographer. You’re a filmmaker. You’re everything.

You don’t need the middleman anymore. That’s why government is terrified. That’s why politicians are no longer listening to you. They can only listen to each other because they’ve got to hold onto their power because you’re about to take it from them. And that’s a good thing.

We’re about to experience freedom unlike we’ve ever had at any time in the history of mankind if you can keep it. It’s the Ben Franklin after the signing of the Constitution—'Mr. Franklin, what did you give us?' 'A republic, man, if you can keep it.' It’s up to us to educate. History is never—the entire timeline of America is a blip in human history, and it’s a freak of nature.

Man has always been oppressed. It’s much more like it is in China. It’s much more like it is in Africa or the Middle East. That’s the natural state of man because natural man is an enemy to God. Natural man is an enemy to someone else’s freedoms. It’s natural man who then says I want to obey a higher purpose, a higher calling. I want to obey God, and I see my fellow man as another created being who has all the right to live and live the way he wants that I do to be able to then say, “Brother, why don’t we help each other? Why don’t we work together? And why don’t we find other like-minded people?” That’s what happened for the first time in human history, and it’s your job to renew it. Thanks, guys. You’re great.

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."
