Glenn Beck: This President is worse than Herbert Hoover!

America's March to Socialism: Why we're one step closer to giant missile parades

is now available as an audio book...

VOICE: In a way Obama's standing above the country, above the world. He's sort of God.

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: That is the editor of Newsweek magazine saying that on MSNBC.

Well, yesterday the unemployment rate, we talked about it, told you that it shot up to 9.4, already higher than the White House economic team's worst case scenario and according to the White House estimates, if we didn't pass the stimulus package, we would never have a lower unemployment rate, okay? At least the White House now is admitting overselling the stimulus. They said worst case scenario, 8% unemployment. Quote: At the time our forecast seemed reasonable. Joe Biden's top economic advisor Jared Bernstein said, explaining the White House underestimated the scope of the recession. Now looking back it was clearly too optimistic.

Wait a minute, can we then look back at all of the other things that you've based, you know, the spending on? Opposite, my bad. Sorry, got that one wrong. Well, thankfully it wasn't a big mistake. It was just 3/4 of a trillion dollar mistake. Happens all the time. Economy has shed 1.6 million since the stimulus measure was signed in February, far overshadowing White House announcements estimating the effort has saved 150,000 jobs. You know, I just heard an expert for the White House say this morning, "Well, you can't say that the stimulus... the stimulus isn't really into effect yet." Okay, all right. So you can't tear him down because we've lost 1.6 million jobs since the stimulus passed, we can't say that it's not working because it really hasn't had a chance yet. Okay, but it's had enough of a chance to create 150,000 jobs? I'm sorry, not create. Save 150,000 jobs? I'd just like to take a moment to do the obligatory, "Imagine that George W. Bush did this" observation. Remember John McCain was obliterated for saying fundamentals of the economy are still sound. Yet here's the president of the United States as the country is losing 1.6 million jobs since he passed the world saving stimulus and he can come out with a straight face while his wife is shopping in boutiques in Paris and say that he saved 150,000 jobs. That's great, Mr. President. That's still a net loss of 1.45 million jobs even if you you know, if I give you credit for the 150,000 created I'm sorry, saved, a number that even the associated press says is so murky, it can never be verified. What a surprise, from the administration that is the pinnacle of transparency. Also remember George W. Bush's first term. He came into office, dot com bubble burst, their huge scandals with Enron shook confidence in America. Then we had the 9/11 hit. Job losses hit $2.6 million, and the press was saying that he was the worst president since Herbert Hoover. Do you remember that? Since this president has come into office, he's lost 1.6 million I'm sorry, that's not even since he's been in office. That's since the stimulus package. Bush implemented massive tax cuts despite Democratic repeatedly cheering him and cheering him on to be the worst president since Herbert Hoover. He actually ended his first term with a net gain of 119,000 jobs. Highest unemployment rate was 6.4. Do you remember the media congratulating him on that? "Job well done. He could have lost so many more jobs." No, no, no. Now back to President Obama. Media's not pulling out the Herbert Hoover references. Isn't that weird? Paul Krugman who's been slurping down the Kool Aid for a while excused the massive job losses like this, quote: Things seem to be getting worse more slowly. Wow. There seems to be reason to think that we're stabilizing. Oh, well, that's great. Paul, thank you for pointing that. It's still getting worse but not as fast. That is good news.

President Obama told people not to worry because as the president says, quote: We're now in a position to accelerate, and we're going to create 600,000 new jobs by the end of summer. Again, I'm not a Nobel Prize winning economist like Paul Krugman but even if he does create or save 600,000 new jobs, that's still a net loss of jobs. How about you stop the job loss? How about that one, Mr. President? There is some actual hope. At least people don't appear to be as stupid as the media is. Disapproval numbers on Obama's handling of the economy have jumped from 30% to 42%. That is his negative ratings on the economy. Luckily, though, he's going to get everything he wants before enough people catch on and stop him. Remember, never waste a crisis.

VOICE: If you can't get enough socialism in your life, get Glenn's new audio book, America's March to Socialism, available at fine capitalist bookstores everywhere.

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!"
