Will Britain Leave the European Union?

While American's are caught up in choosing their next president, Great Britain is fighting for its sovereignty and the future of the European Union.

European Union Parliament member, Daniel Hannan, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to discuss what has become known as The Brexit - or Britain's exit from the European Union.

"We have a referendum on the 23rd of June," Hannan said. "It's exactly as you say. It's on whether the UK leaves the European Union. I am, as you correctly guessed, campaigning to leave. That would mean that my job disappears. I would be giving up a comfortable and well-remunerated position as a Member of the European Parliament because there wouldn't be any more British Members of the European Parliament."

Just like in America, the issue seems to come down to money. Big business wants to stay in and the people want out.

"I think it is fair to say I think both sides would acknowledge this, that the elites tend to be overwhelmingly for staying in --- big business, the mega banks, the politicians, the civil servants. The campaign to stay in is being bankrolled by Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan and a couple of big multinationals," Hannan said.

One thing that will not help the elites is enlisting the aid of America's 'Elitist in Chief.'

"I think the prime minister called in a favor and invited your president to come over and help him. And last week, Barack Obama made a speech saying, 'If you guys leave the European Union, you'll be at the back of the queue for a trade deal with us,'" Hannan said.

Being told what to do by a foreign government typically doesn't go over too well, and it comes as no surprise to Glenn.

"You guys never get involved in our politics," Glenn said. "And honestly, when a leader does tell us what to do, we're like, 'Screw you.' So I imagine it was the same effect over in England."

Ted Cruz had a much different reaction than Obama's.

"There was another much less widely reported intervention because it was much more polite," Hannan said. "This morning, in the London Times, there was an article by Ted Cruz where he said, 'Look, of course, it's for you guys to decide. I'm not going to suggest which way you vote.' In other words, he didn't do an Obama. But he said, 'If you do decide to leave, you would be first in the line for a trade deal because you guys are our friends. And it's up to you to exercise your sovereignty however you wish.'"

In addition to Ted Cruz respecting national sovereignty, it was a breath of fresh air for an outsider to appreciate the the U.S. Constitution.

"Yeah. I've become really obsessed with [the U.S. Constitution] because it applies so uncannily to our present debate about the EU. You know, there's that great line about destroying our free system of English laws. There's a line about taking over the power to control the naturalization of foreigners. Even --- this is where it gets really weird --- there's even a really eerie anticipation of the fact that my parliament, the European Parliament, every month shuffles between Brussels and Strasbourg. It's a huge expense and a great inconvenience," Hannan said.

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.
