Election by Numbers: Arizona and Utah Results

Co-host Stu Burguiere broke down election results from yesterday's votes in Arizona and Utah. Trump said it himself --- Mormons don't like liars --- and Utah voters came out in force for Ted Cruz. In Arizona, border issues and early voting dominated, winning the state for Trump.

Utah Voting Results

Ted Cruz: 69%

Kasich:17%

Trump: 14%

"You know what is really remarkable to me is that the media last night was saying, 'You know, it's over. You know, Ted Cruz can't get at least to 50 percent. Can't get at least to 50 percent. Can't get at least to 50 percent," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "He's at 69 percent, and then all of a sudden it didn't matter. Utah didn't matter."

Stu agreed.

"That's the way they were presenting it all night. The big prize goes to Donald Trump. Also, Ted Cruz didn't come away empty-handed. He also won in Utah," Stu said.

Arizona Election Results

Donald Trump: 47%

Ted Cruz: 25%

Marco Rubio: 13%

John Kasich: 10%

The real story, however, is the delegate count. Here's how it played out:

Delegate Results in Arizona and Utah

Trump: 58

Cruz: 40

Kasich: 0

"We should say the good news for John Kasich yesterday is his delegate total brings him now to within only 23 delegates of Marco Rubio," Stu said. "So he's catching up to the guy who is out of the race."

Money is a key issue for the three remaining Republican candidates, as no one expected the primary battle to go on so long. Glenn went to opensecrets.org to learn who is donating to Kasich's campaign besides George Soros.

"So far, there's no names that are attached to this. But the last Federal Election Commission report that came out was on March 7th. And the website breaks down the money that's been donated to each of the campaigns," Glenn said. "Listen to this: Donald Trump is getting 7 percent of his contributions from large individual donations. ...He says he's funding. No, he's not. He's given his campaign a loan, he gets all of that money back. So Donald Trump gets 7 percent from big donors."

Additionally, Ted Cruz receives 58 percent from large donors. Hillary Clinton receives 76 percent from large donors. John Kasich receives 81 percent from large donors.

"Cruz is still waiting for anybody to come, you know, the big money to come in. The big money is not coming in. This is all on us."

So if you believe in Ted Cruz, it is radically important to support him right now at keepthepromise.org or tedcruz.org.

One key note, Donald Trump has yet to break the 50% mark in votes --- or in general election polls.

"He cannot break 50 percent. That means 50 percent of the GOP is not for him, will not cross the aisle for him," Glenn said. "That's deadly, absolutely deadly when it comes to the election after the nomination."

Listen to this segment beginning at mark 1:18:08 from The Glenn Beck Program:

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
