Glenn Beck: A Burning Question for President Obama



Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

President Obama, apparently feeling like there's not very much on the country's "to-do list," is reportedly going to work on immigration reform later this year and hopes to create a path for the estimated 12 million illegal aliens in America to become legal.

What a sweet, sensitive guy he is.

But the one thing he's missing is that it would be a lot faster and easier to just set us all on fire at this point.

Let me show you what I mean:

$3.5 trillion budget; a budget where the only fat they cut out is national defense; growing Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid obligations where the best-case scenario is that we're on the hook for $53 trillion and the worst-case is that we're buried under $1.25 quadrillion in debt.

Overseas, Obama's apologizing to the Frenchy-French for American arrogance, bowing to Saudi Arabia's king and — I almost forgot — closing Gitmo and potentially letting terrorists onto the streets.

Also, on the island of Cuba, the Congressional Black Caucus met with Fidel Castro to try to fix U.S.-Cuban relations, something that would give their tourism industry a billion-dollar boost. And it's no wonder that Illinois Democrat Bobby Rush said about the meeting, "It was almost like listening to an old friend."

And what a friend he's been, especially to his own people. Under the Castro brothers, 93 percent of the Cuban labor force works for the state, with the average worker making a whopping $9 a month; there are also — according to the United Nations — seven abortions for every 10 babies born in Cuba. Sure sounds like a family vacation destination to me!

President Obama now also wants to legalize illegal aliens, at a time when the unemployment rate is 8.5 percent and the underemployment rate is 15.6 percent. It's hard enough for Americans to find a job, without being forced to compete with a whole new crop of workers.

And let's not forget the U.S. military report that Mexico is as likely to collapse as Pakistan. Between amnesty and chaos, clearly I'm crazy to think that anyone would run for the border.

President Obama, why don't you just set me on fire right now? At least we'd get it over with.

If I burned off my fingers, I might qualify for some aid. Now that is progressive thinking.

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."
