GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. I have to tell you now I'm starting to look like an optimist with some of the things that have been said now that capitalism just doesn't work, that capitalism is now going to fail, that our system has been discredited. Sarkozy has come out and said capitalism is not dead but capitalism as America understands it is dead. The states now will play a bigger role. Well, that is not capitalism. That is nationalism. That is nationalizing your industry. That's fascism. Remember when I said, what, four months ago we are marching towards fascism. "No, that's crazy." There is a new system that has been developed. It has been developed in China and it has been developed in Russia and that's what we're headed for. I should have known it. I should have known it.

I have a friend who was working at one of the big stock markets and he said he was on a plane and he had gone over to China and it was the time when Yao Ming was playing somebody and it was carried while he was over there on national television of China. And he said, my gosh, Glenn, it was such a market. It was 60 million people watching on just one channel and it was carried on four different channels. He's like, the NBA is over there. What a market. And I said, National Basketball Association. He said, what are you talking about? I said, it's not a market. This is our country, man. He's like, it's all going that direction. I should have known it. I should have known it that the people who are into finance, they don't see us this way anymore. They don't see they see it, "Well, it's all global, all going to be one." And when they saw a way to make money and they see a way for things to get done the way they want it to get done and that's the only way... capitalism in a democracy, it's ugly. It's brutal. A republic is ugly because you've got to convince everybody to do it.

The reason why, the reason why our country almost lost World War II was because you've got to convince people. We couldn't gear it up right away. You've got to convince people, you've got to bring them on board, you've got to do what we're doing now. What were we screaming at last weekend? What are we screaming at? Every time they make these on a weekend. They make these deals on a weekend, they keep us out of it. Whose country is this? Well, you are about to find out. Whose country is this? It is the global banks, it's the Fed, it's the central banks, it's the politicians. The country is fundamentally changing. German finance minister says the dollar is going to become relative to all other currencies. The Germans want it, the Chinese want it. The Chinese are talking about the Chinese are talking about one global currency, not the U.S. dollar. One global currency. Chinese yesterday said that their banks can no longer make any loans to the United States. The UN says one world finance. The UN also, several people at the UN this week said capitalism is dead, it doesn't work. What are you talking about it doesn't work? Greed doesn't work. Concentrated political power doesn't work. Fannie and Freddie doesn't work. Why did Fannie and Freddie not work? Because it is the hybrid between government and capitalism. It is taking political power and injecting money into it. That's why it didn't work. Socialism doesn't work. Marxism doesn't work. Fascism doesn't work. Capitalism works. Capitalism put a man on the moon. Chinese, they're trying to walk in space today. We've not only walked in space, we've had a picnic on the moon. Capitalism. Freedom.

You think Edison would have done what he did? You think Edison would have been able to do what he did in a country like China? Nope. Not free to think. Not free to fail. Edison changed the world in America. This country changed the world. This system changed the world and now they have been slowly but surely changing our system. They have been they have been doing it since 1914. They have been moving this direction. They have been moving step by step, piece by piece towards global government and now we're about to get a global financial system. We're about to get an America that we don't even begin to recognize. This is a hostile takeover of our country. And it's all done literally in the middle of the night. Where's the voice that says we shouldn't be doing this? Where's the voice? Do you hear anybody in congress? Where's the coverage of Ron Paul? This guy has predicted this every step of the way. Where's the coverage of Ron Paul? Where's the coverage, where's the coverage of DeMint? Why is that? How's that happening? Where is the spine of either one of these candidates to tell us, to step to the microphone and say this is what needs to be done? You know why? You know why we're not doing it? Because they don't know. They got people. This is how I'd kill for President Romney right now. A guy who could step to the microphone and explain it. And say, look, this is the deal. These are the things that we have to do. At least, at least he could be held accountable. These people are not going to be held accountable because they're not going to take a stand. Why aren't they going to take a stand? Because they don't truly understand it. They are being used. Their strings are being pulled.

These guys are calling in some of the biggest experts let me tell you something. Let me tell you something that I let me tell you something that I haven't seen in the press anywhere. I only have one source on this. So maybe it's it's a good no, it's a good source.

John McCain had a meeting. Some of the biggest, some of the biggest names, some of the biggest names in industry. Capitalism, big, big brains. It's my understanding that that meeting that was called was to last an hour and had 20 of the biggest people go into that meeting. Well, why haven't I heard about that meeting? Who were the people involved? And that's great, if you are doing that, that's great. But you had 20 people and it was going to last an hour? You give everybody two minutes to speak, you haven't solved a damn thing. That only leaves 20 minutes to come up with a solution and argue about it. What the hell is that? Besides a publicity stunt? But there was no publicity. Why did that happen? Did it happen? Did it happen? Who are the people advising these people? I know who Obama has. You know, he had Raines as his advisor, the guy who brought us, what was it, Fannie or Freddie? Made $90 million in salary. Cooked the books. That was his mortgage guy to give advice on, you know, the mortgage situation. You've got to be kidding me, right? I know Bob Rubin is advising Obama. I haven't agreed with anything that guy says. That guy, that guy is going to take you to a socialist place. And they're taking us there. Where is the coverage of any other voice? Where is any other option? We're going to get a deal. That's what the President says. We're going to get a deal. Well, how about presenting the options to us?

You notice that the President, he spoke. He explained the problem, kind of, and then he says we need a bailout. But it was where's somebody that will explain the charts? Where was somebody that will say, "Look, America, you've got a choice. America, we're on the verge of collapse. America, the rest of the world says capitalism doesn't work." Where is that in the news? Where is the leader that's going to stand up and say, bullcrap capitalism doesn't work. Greed doesn't work. Where is that?

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

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?
