The Most Dangerous Conservative in American Politics Rocks Red Shorts

Both Hillary Clinton's and Donald Trump's approval ratings are in the tank. Is there anyone on the horizon with true conservative principles that could win the presidency?

"I will tell you somebody who is playing it really, really brilliantly, who is acting like a president and who is not plastic . . . it's Ben Sasse," Glenn said Thursday on radio.

Sasse’s book The Vanishing American Adult is about family, not policy --- a refreshing change from a politician.

“That guy is positioning himself to be a guy that could be trusted for both sides,” Glenn said.

Sasse has an affable personality, a killer Twitter game and snazzy red shorts.

“He's young. He seems to gauge well on social media. He's funny. He's engaging. I mean, he's really smart,” Co-host Stu Burguiere said.

GLENN:  Hello, welcome to the program.

I want to talk a little about some poll numbers here.  I saw a poll that, you know, Barack -- I mean, sorry.  Donald Trump's, you know, positive rating is, what?  43 percent now.  And they're saying that's horrible and awful.  And it is.

PAT:  Well, the latest one was 36 percent.  But...

STU:  The average is around 39.

PAT:  Yeah, the average is 38 or 39.

GLENN:  Okay.  So I saw one that was Donald Trump, 43.  Hillary Clinton, 39.  So have you guys -- has anybody heard anybody mention that Hillary Clinton is polling around the same as Donald Trump?  And she hasn't done anything.

Remember, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

STU:  Yeah, Bush's approval rating, he left with around 30 percent, and it's up around 50 right now.  That's usually what happens.

GLENN:  And she was -- her whole campaign strategy was shut her up.  Don't let her talk.  And she won't hurt herself.

And her approval rating was supposed to go up, just by making her go away.  She's at 39 percent.

So for the high and mighty Democrats, we're both screwed, guys.  Both sides are screwed.

Who do you have -- who does America have that you can pull out and say, here's the next president?

I will tell you somebody who is playing it really, really brilliantly, who is acting like a president and who is not plastic -- in fact, I've read his book.  And it's the first book that I've read from a politician, where he actually wrote it.  And it's not about policy.  It's about family and everything else.  Ben Sasse.

STU:  Yeah.

GLENN:  I mean, that guy is positioning himself to be a guy that could be trusted for both sides.  Now, whether anybody wants a nice guy, I don't know.

STU:  And I think obviously Donald Trump is likely -- unless he decides to leave office himself, is going to be there for 2020.

GLENN:  Oh, yeah.  Yeah.  2024.

STU:  But Sasse is young.  Yeah.  I mean, he's young.  He seems to gauge well on social media.  He's funny.  He's engaging.  I mean, he's really smart.

GLENN:  Remember when he was on The Daily Show and he hit it out of the park?  And I believe when he left, they were talking, on The Daily Show going, "That is the most dangerous conservative out there."  Because he was so likable.

PAT:  Yeah.

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."
