VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Yes, that's right, comrade. The most difficult problem in the fight against terrorism is, of course, what? Education, right? Biggest reason so many young people in the Middle East are out in the front lines willing to blow themselves up is because either the lack of education or that Hamas is educating the kids in the school. "Well, we never have that problem here." I mean, they just don't know the difference between the crap that they're being fed by some nut job terrorist in their schools and the truth, so the battle of socialism is raging here in America and they are targeting our youth. Most people don't even know it. Don't believe me? Try this on for size. Students at a New Jersey elementary school just got a lesson in climate change and solar power from a solar panel manufacturer. Hmmm, I don't know if anybody's noticing the conflict of interest here, but it kind of sticks out at me. How would the school have reacted if I came in and pitched them with this one: Yeah, I'd like to bring in a representative from my company to talk about how our dependence on foreign oil is too high." Well, that sounds really great. "Yeah, and one way to reduce it is for our company to be allowed to start drilling here at home." "Well, what's your company?" "ExxonMobil. So is this a go? Because I've got to get back into my big Cadillac with the horns on the front."

Employees of the Sharp Electronics Corporation at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School in New Jersey recently were brought in to teach a lesson on climate change and renewable energy. The cartoon image of an ailing Earth with a thermometer sticking out of its mouth was the opening slide in their presentation. Quote: It turns out that the temperature of the Earth is actually rising, end quote. Really? How about that. Have you looked at a thermometer this year? I'm sorry, that's -- "You can't do that one day, one year." You're right. Let's look at it the last 10 years. Sharp began its solar academy program in the United States in October 2008. Wow, October. October, November -- whoa, right before Barack Obama was elected as president. "The initiative is based on a similar program in Japan that since 2007 has been presented at 700 schools and 50,000 students." Wow, 50,000 students just in Japan in 12 months. "There's a war raging, the war of ideas, and common sense is losing. It makes business sense," according to Stuart Mitchell, the chief strategy officer for Sharp, who started the American version of the program. Quote: The big picture is you really want to tie your focus on social responsibility as a company into your business models. Quoting: The more that students learn about climate change and the more they learn about the importance of renewable energy, it ties back to feeding into our business model of being in the solar business. Does anybody have a problem with this one? That's not community service. That's indoctrination, jack. But nice job of disguising it, you know, with the subtleness of a bad boon and the stealth of an elephant.

The renewable energy portion of the presentation mentions several technologies including hydro, wind and ocean power, but solar panels quickly become the focus. What a strange coincidence. The focus just somehow shifts to solar energy. Just part of the responsibility tying in with the business, right? I mean, that's the responsible thing to do. Students watched a short video about how solar panels work and then tried a hands-on activity in which they discovered how much work is required to power a 60-watt light bulb with hand cranks compared with using a small solar panel.

When's the last time you had to crank up the light bulbs for your house? "At the end of the class the students were given workbooks and a Sharp brand solar-powered calculator to take home with them." Wow, if solar power can power a calculator, surely it could power the world's biggest economy. Don Chiossi, another fifth grade science teacher, also gave the program two big thumbs-up. "We cover all forms of energy in our classroom but to have people come in from the community and talk about it helps even more." Plus -- quoting -- plus, the kids love calculators. Oh, well, the kids love calculators. Oh, let's not pay any attention to what's going on here. The kids love calculators.

"The students for their part did seem to enjoy the class, though they weren't without questions for the Sharp team." Quote, one student asked, "If you use only solar power, what would you use at nighttime?" See? At the end, at the end we always try to leave you with just a little hope.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

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?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

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.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
