GLENN: Scott Baker from Breitbart.TV is with me now and he's going to be the guy conducting the interview tonight and he is asking questions that we have asked you, the audience, to send in. How many questions did you get?

BAKER: You're audience is unnecessarily cruel. I had already read, like, 870 something. So, actually last night I wanted to have a clear head. So, I went to the gym, had a nice dinner. I came back. There were 500 new questions..

GLENN: Really?

BAKER: I was up until 3:30.

GLENN: Do you have the questions ready? I mean, I

BAKER: I was going to read a couple to you, but I forgot my reading glasses. So

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Give me generally speaking I don't want to know any of the questions in advance, obviously, just honest questions is all I ask. But give me a general idea where we're headed. What are they what do the Insiders you'll see this tonight. I said I'll do you know, I'm not afraid of I'm not afraid of answering questions. I just want somebody with an honest agenda, an agenda of just asking honest questions, not got you questions.

BAKER: Right..

Glenn: So, where are we going on this?

BAKER: There are a lot of substance questions. And, in fact, the way that you phrased it reflects a lot of the attitude which is where are we going. A lot of people want to know your insights about, you know, the economy and politics, things you might expect. There are some very specific questions. I think there are people that are mad at you about some stuff. I know you've said the and for the audience, honestly, I mean, nobody I've been walking around here. Nobody has, you know, directed me about this. I'm the only one that's seen the questions. In fact, Pat just asked me during the commercial break, Well, what are some of the tough ones? And Glenn was, like, I don't want to hear it, I don't want to hear it. And

GLENN: You saw that on the Insider Extreme.

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: You probably didn't hear it, but if you saw me put my hands up, I said, No, no. I don't want to know it. And

BAKER: I will also say that I got to be the first guest on the fourth hour yesterday.

PAT: That was exciting for you, wasn't it?

BAKER: Yeah. It was. And

GLENN: You know, I understand, though, that you guys I didn't hear it you guys were giving him

BAKER: Ideas.

GLENN: You can make a question really, really hard. Like, this one will make him cry. And I'm like, This one will make him cry? Every one will make me cry. That's not a challenge.

PAT: We realized it would be more challenging no to make you cry. So

BAKER: And the bar is now can I make you walk off stage? That's really where the bar is.

GLENN: Thank you.

BAKER: I actually heard that in the hallway, too.

GLENN: Because and correct me if I'm wrong, Scott.

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: The staff is my biggest enemy.

BAKER: Well, I was going to reveal that to you tonight. I don't think like, if I wondered around I created a new category of staff questions.

GLENN: Because I've heard this. Everybody is walking in the hay. I walk into their office. They're like, yeah, I think we can make you walk off the stage. I'm, like, wait a minute. Hold it. That shouldn't be your you're supposed to be on my side.

BAKER: But if you're nervous, I said this on the fourth hour, I said it might actually be more interesting if I just interview Pat about you. We might learn more.

PAT: Seriously, that would be you would be more.

GLENN: We're moving on now. So, this is for the Insider Extreme tonight. The first session is The Future of History and I'm going to tell you some stories that are just incredible, things that you just didn't know that I think will inspire and uplift and it will show you also where we're headed as a company and where my head is and where I'm headed and kind of give you the beginning look at where I think the country needs to go, where you need to go.

Now, when I say that, when I say you, I use a blanket statement. There are some of you that are listening to me now that are, you know, at moveon.com and that's a separate monolog on where you can go, but but then the second half is questions from you. Part of the Insider Extreme concept is extreme access. So, the idea was questions that I just wouldn't, you know, answer and things that we do now, we do and everybody does this you have parameters, usually, on interviews because I don't need an interview. I don't want an interview. I don't need an interview so, I'm not going into, you know, things about my family and everything else, but this one I said we'll do it for the insiders, Insider Extreme, because I can trust we can pick a journalist that is not in our pocket but does not have an agenda and I will answer the questions that the listener wants to wants to know and a journalist will say, now, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute. I don't think he answered the question or whatever.

BAKER: You said I can hold your feet to the fire on this. And we're I know I'm just being a masochist here, but I think people can still submit questions. I'll try to look at the ones this afternoon, you know, but if we get buried by another 500, I don't possibly

GLENN: Do you want to do the Twitter thing?

BAKER: Well, you know, we're talking about whether it will be Twitter or e mail mail or telepathic.

GLENN: All right. Sign up for this special one night only broadcast from Times Square on Broadway in the Nokia Theater here in New York City, The Future of History, tonight, the broadcast on Insider Extreme only. Access it now. Become a member at glennbeck.com.

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.
