Glenn Beck: McCain's bold move

GLENN: Can you trust either of these guys to really do the job? We're going to see. At least one of them has the courage to actually stand up and go to Washington and be the -- and here's why I say courage. This is leadership. This is -- did slogan really fits John McCain Country First. If he were to be President, he may be the worst President of all time. But I will tell you this, the guy does have a backbone. The guy does have a spine. Because just war game this out for me, will you?

So he is going to Washington to do this bill. If he actually gets it -- well, let's take all the options. He goes, he meets with everybody, it falls through, there is no bill, the economy collapses. It's John McCain's fault. He couldn't get it done. If he passes a bill and it's got all kinds of stuff in it that, you know, I don't know, 75% of the country is against, John McCain has just done the tough thing but he's just brought us something that nobody wants. And there's no winner here because it's exactly like, "Hey, there hasn't been a terrorist attack since 2001." Well, you don't get credit for that. You only get blame for what didn't happen. So he's not going to get credit for it. He's going to get blamed for the biggest spending package twice the size of prescription drugs.

And the third option is he stands against it and it doesn't pass and then he's blamed -- because everything collapses. Then he's blamed because he couldn't get it done. So exactly how does John McCain win here? The answer is he doesn't. He doesn't win. This is on a suicide mission. This is a guy who really does put country first, or he's just the dumbest strategist of all time and I don't believe that. It's just finally somebody's standing up -- you know we always say how come we can't get anybody to be on the record, how come politicians are so smarmy? It's because when somebody actually puts their career at stake and does something you don't like, you don't vote for him.

Let me go to Mitch in Texas. Hello, Mitch, welcome to the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hey, Glenn, I've got a comment. I see Obama refuses to go to Washington to place an up or down vote on a stimulus plan. Sounds typical Barack Obama. Whereas we have McCain who is willing to say yes or no and come together to get us back on track. I think that speaks volumes.

GLENN: Yeah, I do, too. I will tell you that, Mitch, I am impressed with -- you know, I said two days ago and again yesterday, I said when I find out that neither one of these guys were planning on going back to the Senate and take a vote, I said where is the leadership out of these two. You guys don't even have -- you don't have the spine to go stand in the well of the Senate and help put this thing together and then say this is where I stand and I'm going on the record, if you don't have the spine to do that, you don't have the spine to be the President of the United States. And here is John McCain doing just that. I will tell you that it is typical John McCain. He is willing to go down with the ship to do what he believes is right and honorable, and there is something to be said about that.

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."
