GLENN: The news is absolutely incredible, from the porn industry wanting a bailout which we'll get to in a second, and I don't think you can argue with them -- from the porn industry wanting a bailout to New York now wanting longer coverage for your kids on health insurance. Well, wait a minute, what does that mean? You can keep your kids on your health insurance a longer period of time. Well, that sounds fantastic. Wait a minute, doesn't that already cover through college? Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, no, your kids can stay under Mommy and Daddy's wing until they're 30. Get out of the house, deadbeat! Get a job and get some healthcare! 30, I'm about to snap. And then I read this one, and only in New York: A guy is having trouble with his relationship with his wife and she gets sick and they have been having problems and they're struggling and everything else, but she's sick. Until death do us part. She gets so sick, she needs a kidney. Her husband looks at her and says, "Honey, I've already given you my heart. I'll give you my kidney, too." He donates a kidney to his wife; she gets better and then she cheats on him. And he says, you've got to be kidding me, right? "What? You know how sexy that scar is there? Oh, yes." So now they're in divorce court. And only in the city where it snows up is he saying, "I want my damn kidney back."

Now, as crazy as that sounds, the judge's response was, "We don't think there's a court in the land that would do it." We don't think there's a court in the land that would do it? I mean, you know, possession is 9/10ths of the law. I think when it comes to the kidney, I think you keep the kidney. Stu disagrees with me? She's got to give the kidney back?

STU: You are a guy and you have -- you are a loyal, in a long-term relationship and your wife is nearing death. So you give her, you give her one of your most vital organs and she cheats on you? You get scissors and you pop the thing out.

GLENN: No, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I didn't know he could take it out himself. I may be on your side.

STU: I'm just sayin'.

GLENN: If legally the judge says, yes, but you have to take it out with this rusty spoon, then I might be on your side. No, look, here's the thing. When you give somebody something, especially a kidney, an organ, you give it to them. For instance, do you loan money to your family?

STU: I do not think that is a good idea.

GLENN: That wasn't the question. Do you loan money to your family?

STU: I'm trying to give you an accurate answer here. I would say no. I never would loan --

GLENN: You never have in nobody's ever asked you for money? You've never loaned money?

STU: I would never --

GLENN: Why are you so -- what have I caught you in?

STU: No, you can't --

GLENN: What kind of made-up scam are you in with your parents? Really, Mom, just invest more.

STU: What happens is I pay my mom and then my children will have to pay me later.

GLENN: Oh, so Uncle Sam, it's you. Okay.

STU: No, I would never -- the bottom line is -- and this is I think, I think this is universal: You never loan money to someone in your family and actually expect it back.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right. If you loan somebody in your family money, you just can't expect it back. They can promise, "I promise," uh-huh, whatever. Because if they don't, then your family life is wrecked with them forever because you are always seething about, "You never paid -- you just went out and you bought what? You've upgraded? You are now eating Alpo when you can eat the generic stuff?"

STU: That doesn't mean they don't pay it back. They should.

GLENN: You've got to let it go and you've just got to give it. When you are giving somebody an organ, see, I have to tell you. If you gave me an organ and then all of a sudden you thought you owned me, you don't even own my kidney.

STU: Whoa, whoa, whoa. That has nothing to do with owning. It's about respecting the vows.

GLENN: How do you know that's not his attitude?

STU: He wants the kidney back. He deserves the kidney back.

GLENN: If they are rich -- and this is the case they are making also is, I want the kidney back or I want the money. "

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you could make the case, they valued the kidney at, what is it, $1.5 million? You could make the -- yeah, $1.5 million. You could make the case that she has to pay you for the kidney.

STU: Legally I don't know that you have a case to reclaim the kidney, I will be honest. But I'm just saying in the real world, if you are that horrible a person that someone will give you one of their vital organs and you will still treat them like trash, you deserve to lose the kidney. He could just, he doesn't even have to use it. He doesn't have to put it back in. He can just put it on his mantel in a little glass box like it's a trophy and I'd be fine with it.

GLENN: It would be. If I got the kidney from my wife who cheated on me, I wouldn't want it back in me. I'd want it on my fireplace. I would. I'd want it on the mantel. I might use it, I might bronze it and use it as a doorstop.

STU: I might just wait until it's completely unusable and then mail it to her just so she -- you can have it; I just don't want it to work.

GLENN: You know what? I've changed my mind. Here's the kidney back. You are right. But see, that wasn't what Jesus would do. But then again, Jesus wasn't married, now, was he? Uh-huh, didn't marry Jesus, did ya? I want the kidney back.

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."
