Glenn goes to Washington


Pictures from Glenn's trip to DC...

GLENN: So then the President arrives. He is positively robotic. I watch him because, you know, I was seated waaaay off to the side, which I was actually thankful for. I didn't want to be anywhere near the center where it was nothing but NBC and GE employees.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, I don't know if they were the new halogen green lights but they were all lit up and everything. What a bunch of anyway, so I'm off to the side. So I could see the President and the first lady, you know, off to the side of the stage as they're getting ready, and we weren't that far away. I mean, it was probably from here to the other studios away from the President and, yeah, I could see him backstage with the secret service, and he wasn't necessarily smiling. They introduced him, and the minute he hit that light, big smile came on his face, and the minute he stepped out of those lights or they stopped the cameras, the smile went away. He was taking pictures with kids and he's like, Mr. President, you've got to take a picture of the winners and he would smile, and stop. I mean, he was robotic. He was very, very good at his speech. He's an effective speaker, he's a very good speaker. I thought he was funny.

STU: See, I haven't seen him perform the comedy too well, but who

GLENN: I thought he was for a President I thought he did very I thought he did very well.

STU: I thought the funniest part was when Wanda Sykes went into that whole routine about Malia and she just went wrecking the President's daughter and was talking about

GLENN: No, no, she did that to Sarah Palin's daughter. No, it wasn't the President's daughter.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: You might have been confused because remember she did the whole routine on Joe Biden's daughter. You know, that

STU: Ripped her, ripped her.

GLENN: No, no, wait, she didn't. No, no, she did it on Sarah Palin's daughter.

STU: But I thought the funny part was when he was like, you know who I want to just die of kidney failure?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Is Rachel Maddow. I mean, that stupid

GLENN: No, she no, she didn't do that, no, uh uh. She did that on Rush Limbaugh. I tell you, when she did because Todd Palin was there and was sitting at a table behind me.

STU: Classy, classy.

GLENN: Todd Palin came up. He was very nice. He's a normal human being. And I said, Todd, don't destroy this is before. Don't destroy your family, don't destroy your family. Are you guys strong enough as a family to weather this slime? And he said, "I think so. I think so." And I said, just be really careful, man. This is just bad, this is bad stuff here. And he said, "Oh, I know, I know." But he was very optimistic and he was a good guy. And normal, just normal. And when she started in on Sarah Palin and, you know, abstinence, I thought, what are you doing? What are you doing? Is this changing the dialogue in Washington that was so promised? Is that what it is? Because this is a change.

I had a couple that won't be named because there were reporters, but a couple of journalists come up to me afterwards and said, you came on an interesting year. And I said, did I? And he said, yeah, you witnessed a new low and a new standard. He said, never has this happened like this before. Imus had done stuff, but it was again against the President.

STU: Yeah, because that's the tradition.

GLENN: That's the tradition.

STU: You are always wrecking, and even Colbert was but it was wrecking the President. And even though some people thought it went over the line, it was still

GLENN: Kidney failure? Kidney failure? Really?

STU: Well, the thing is, though, it's a comedian and it's not like the President the President wasn't

GLENN: I was thrilled. If you saw because apparently I read a one reporter said that they cut to me and I was stone faced during that. I wasn't laughing. But somebody else, they saw me on C Span and they cut away and I was smiling, leaning over talking to my wife. I was smiling. I said, "These people are so stupid. They've just written my comedy tour."

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: If this is the standard, oh, oh, I can't wait to go on and do comedy on stage. If this is the standard. Wanda Sykes, boy, I mean, I'm torn because I'd love you to be able to stand by my side and defend me when I list the people that I'd like to see get kidney failure.

STU: That would be hilarious. And Barack Obama would be laughing the whole time because he loves those jokes.

GLENN: Well, he might not hear it because I believe Barack Obama may be the 20th hijacker! (Laughing).

STU: Oh, you, oh, you, don't you do oh, my. Oh, my God because you know what? Liberals love when you call Barack Obama a terrorist. They love it!

GLENN: He's the 20th hijacker! He didn't show up because he was too busy embezzling money with ACORN!

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). Oh, man, I hope Wanda Sykes gets kidney has kidney failure. So make sure you join us on our comedy tour, it's our Common Sense comedy tour. Tickets are still available. Be a lot of great jokes happening.

STU: (Laughing). That's unbelievable, how we were ever in a comedian that doesn't have a TV show anymore.

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."
