GLENN: Okay, all right. If you have high blood pressure. If you're anybody that, you know, is close to a heart attack or anything, turn the radio off right now because this gives me heart palpitations. Are you ready?

Congress just a few days ago, the house approved $200 million, the house just approved $200 million to buy three Gulf Stream jets to ferry top government officials and members of Congress around. I'm trying to remember, um, how much they praised the auto industry and the CEOs for being responsible with their time by flying in a private jet to come talk to Congress, and then after they excoriated the people in private jets then unbeknownst to you, most likely, they offered a tax credit for anybody who purchased a Gulf Stream or private jet. Did you know that?


Did you know that?

No, I don't think.

GLENN: Did you know that, Stu?

STU: No, I only lease my private jets.

GLENN: I found that out from a pilot who is having his companies that he works for completely destroyed, kind of like the people who are pilots kind of feel a little like I think the board of tourism in Vegas feel right now. Oh, my gosh, thank you so much for that. So they've done everything to badmouth anybody that rides on a private jet and yet, they offer tax breaks if you buy a new private jet. How is that?

What is that?

Is that an indulgence?

Is that what that is?

Is that so you can buy your way into forgiveness, I'm not sure. What is that?

STU: Important people need to get to important places, Glenn

GLENN: I'm glad to know that they're buying the new Gulf Stream 550 which is $65 million apiece.

STU: That's the southwest Air of the private jets.

GLENN: That's the nicest jet made. No, no, it's the nicest jet made.

STU: It doesn't have any options, though?

GLENN: It has all the options. You can buy a jet that's very nice, not quite this size but very close. You can buy one for $20 million. This one is $65 million.

STU: The problem, though

GLENN: You could buy a G5 and don't go for the upgrade of the G550 and you can get it for $55 million

STU: You're putting this crazy analogy together. With private jets, there's no way you can buy them used

GLENN: You can buy them used, in fact, Donald Trump, there's this huge area of the desert that has gigantic, 727s. You can buy a 727 for about, I think don't quote me on this, but I believe about $10 million. You have to renovate it. You probably have to put another $10 million in it to renovate it, but it's sitting right there. There's $20 million for a 727, or you could buy a Gulf Stream 550 for members of Congress at $65 million.

STU: You're, again, missing there's huge holes in your story here.

GLENN: Really?


Really?

STU: Yes, you can buy a $10 million jet but unfortunately there's nobody who is available to work and take a new job to work on a new project like that.

GLENN: No, there's lots of companies that would go ahead and the companies that are begging for business.

STU: You have full employment. There's no way anybody could take

GLENN: No, I don't know if you know this. For instance, I think it was in Ohio, they've been hiring or is it Wisconsin, where they've been hiring people with stimulus money and the jobs only last five days. How many?

Was that in Oregon?

Yeah, they last only five days and you know, the representatives in Oregon said nobody thought that you could get more than five days' worth of work for this money. Oh, you're right. Why would we create a job that would last more than five days?

If we could just create a job let's say we could create 100 people. We could create a job for 100 people. Hang on. We have cast Sustine as a czar. That sounded like a statement, but maybe that's an idea. How about we just create people?

Yeah, if we create people and then give them something to put in their engine that makes their engine not run, we could crush the old people, sell them as food to China. Voice: it's people. Soilent green is made out of people!

Soilent green is people!

GLENN: That's not a bad idea. Would somebody write that down for me?


Write that down. Let's just get people and send to Kass Sustine. He's the regulatory czar. I forget what czar he is. I love him. He's great. Anyway so what we do is we create jobs. In fact, we should create a bunch of new green jobs. If we could get new green jobs. Who do we know over the green jobs?

Voice: HO, HO, green job czar.

GLENN: We get Vann Jones, the devout communist, we get him to create a bunch of jobs that only last five days. Let's do this with 5,000 people. Five days, you lose your job and then create new jobs. We take those same thousand people and employ them for another five days and now we just created 2,000 jobs. If we did that once a week, new jobs every week, we could take the same thousand people and claim that we have created 52,000 jobs. That's fantastic.

PAT: Genius.

GLENN: Wait a minute. What if we say those thousand people are only working for one day. We could create 365,000 new jobs. My, my, I mean

VOICE: HO, HO, HO, green job czar!

GLENN: I'm thinking, okay. Next thing you know I will be working for the Obama administration, you know, making people into soilent green. What? That's an idea! Why the hate?

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."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
