GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

STU: Hello, Mr. Mayor. How are you, sir? Very well. We had been getting calls --

GLENN: By the way, the reason I'm not speaking to the mayor is because we have to get permission. Get permission. Let me talk to him.

STU: No, I just wanted to ask you real quick, do you want to talk to Glenn on the air? He's here.

GLENN: I'm ready to give an apology.

STU: Okay. Do you want to -- he's right here.

GLENN: It's right now, right here.

STU: Hold on one second, okay?

GLENN: On what line? Mr. Mayor?

MAYOR: Hey, good morning, how are you? I'm doing fine.

GLENN: Good. I understand you are demanding an apology.

MAYOR: Well, I'm requesting an apology because I think that the people of Laredo felt a little bit insulted, you know, some of the comments that were made.

GLENN: Really? By me saying that we should send federal money and possibly troops not just into Laredo but to the border to make sure that our American citizens are safe? They were on demanded by that how exactly?

MAYOR: First of all, let me just say one thing, Mr. Beck, with all due respect. I spent five years in FBI in Mexico. I work with authorities. A lot of them risk their lives. I handled 21 kidnappings in Mexico of Americans.

GLENN: Yes. May and these officers, dedicated officers that were getting paid. Some of them were getting paid $300 or $400 a month.

GLENN: Mexicans, great. I'm talking about Americans. I understand that there is a few great -- May these are Americans, sir. These are Americans.

GLENN: Mayor, sir.

MAYOR: Yeah.

GLENN: I first of all never said anything wrong with anyone that is an American citizen. I also have no problem with the Mexican citizen. But are you trying to tell me that the drug cartels don't exist and there aren't some in the police force? Excuse me, sir, that the police force is incorrupt?

MAYOR: I invite you to come to Laredo. You are more than welcome. You can visit Laredo.

GLENN: I would love to. I would like to know -- I tell you what. Sir, I have a network break. I have a network break. I don't mean to be rude. I have a network break. I have to break for three minutes. But I would like to come back and I would like to know exactly what you would like me to apologize for when I said the American --

MAYOR: Why don't you come to Laredo and you can see the real picture.

GLENN: I tell you what, I'm more than willing to come to Laredo, I hear it's beautiful this time of year. What I would like to know, sir, is what you want me to apologize for and we'll do that in just a second. Hold on. The mayor of Laredo, Texas, who for some reason, and we'll find out why he's upset at me. All right. Are you there?

MAYOR: I'm hanging up, sir. I've got bigger things to do for the city.

GLENN: Just tell me what you're angry about. What do you want me to apologize for? Why do you want me to apologize?

MAYOR: I'm upset --

GLENN: Why do you want me to apologize for?

MAYOR: If you'll let me talk, sir.

GLENN: Then just tell me that, sir. I'm up against a break. Go ahead.

MAYOR: All I'm telling you, sir, is that the way Laredo, Texas was depicted is not fair, okay? And I think I have a right to stand up for my city.

GLENN: You do. Tell me the truth.

MAYOR: I'm telling you the truth.

GLENN: I understand. Tell me the truth. Tell me what I said was wrong.

MAYOR: You asked me to tell the truth. I'm not saying that you're lying to me. You're saying that I was lying. You're saying that I didn't tell the truth. I'm asking you to tell me the truth.

MAYOR: You know.

GLENN: Tell me the truth, sir. I'm not saying that you're lying. You're accusing me of misleading the American people. So tell me the truth about Laredo. What's happening there, sir, that I didn't --

MAYOR: Let's talk off the air and then we'll --

GLENN: No, sir, why do we have to do that? Why do we have to do that?

MAYOR: I have other things to do.

GLENN: Just tell me what did I get wrong.

MAYOR: Goodbye.

GLENN: What did I get wrong?

MAYOR: Nothing, nothing.

GLENN: Tell me, what I did wrong?

MAYOR: I've got to run. I've got business to take care of, okay? You're welcome to come to Laredo. Thank you, sir, bye.

GLENN: What did I say wrong?

MAYOR: Goodbye. Nothing, sir. You're perfect, okay? Goodbye.

GLENN: Stations, my apologies. We have never blown off this network break and I know we are screwing stations coast to coast. I apologize for that. What did I say wrong? What did I say wrong?

STU: You didn't say anything wrong.

GLENN: I want to know what I said wrong.

STU: I would like to know, too.

GLENN: Maybe he can write me. Maybe -- Stu, do me a favor.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Set up a time where he can talk to me. I'm not going to let him talk to me and lecture me off the air. I want to know what I said wrong. He can write it to us, he can point to the facts that I got wrong. I can tell you that there are so many loopholes, there are so many hoops that I have to jump through to be able to put facts like this on air. I can guarantee you he can't quote one that I got wrong. But go ahead. We'll talk about it. We're going to take a break. Stations, my apologies. Breaking now.

END TRANSCRIPT

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."
