GLENN: There's a Pew study out today, the Pew Commission called Red Ink Rising: A Call to Action to Stem the Mounting Federal Deb. This is, you know, the committee for a responsible federal budget. This is pretty frightening stuff. The looming fiscal crisis and the federal debt and the I mean, it goes on. It's, I don't even know how many pages this thing is. It's 30 pages. And basically what it says is even if we come out of the recession, it may not matter. And it won't matter for very long because you've got total destruction of wealth coming. Our children are going to be enslaved by what we are doing right now. It is the Cloward and Piven strategy. It's the final phase of the Cloward Piven strategy, which is collapse the system. When you collapse the system, what are you going to run to? Well, Cloward and Piven, they figured it out that you have to have the structure in place. You have to have something that the system collapses into and that's what we're building right now.

You know I said this on the air last night on television, I think it was, at least I was thinking it, that, do you remember if you are a radio listener of mine, do you remember when I was saying to you, when I first said they're going to come for a bailout of the banks. I think we were on that before it was announced because of some of my connections. I had a, who I've referred to now for years as deep throat call me and say bailout is coming. He said it's the only way, Glenn. Otherwise this thing flies into the side of a mountain. He had been walking from the Fed building, treasury building in Lower Manhattan the night before he got home and he called me. He had met with everyone from the Fed and the treasury and he said, I walked down the street and he said, I'm just looking at all the faces of the cars that are driving by me. And he said, they had no idea, nobody has any idea what's coming. He said, we need time. We need time so people can wake up and be prepared. I said, I'm trying to wake people up. Well, that's why the TARP idea, before it was named TARP or the bailout, before they put it into politics, before they actually started saying what it was, that's why I was for it. But that's not what it turned into. That's why in three or four days I was against it. Because I realized they are not going to use this. They are going to use this time to say and this money to say, see, we fixed it. And they haven't. They have only bought us time. Now, those who know, what are they doing? They are fundamentally transforming our system. That's what they're doing. They're putting things in place so when it does collapse, they will be there.

Now, have we done that? Have we done that ourselves in our own life, that when things collapse, do we have to run to someone? I told you, was it Monday? Is it Thursday today already? My gosh. Monday I told you on this program that I had heard from an adviser friend of mine, and he is not a guy who has ever said, Glenn, you're on the money, Glenn, you're he's a very measured man. Very well respected. Has advised presidents on both sides of the aisle. He's a he is a very respected, measured individual. He said, Glenn, look at history. There's a window of opportunity. And the very bad guys and the very good guys are going to use this time period right now. I can feel it that it is true and I think you can feel it as well. We are the fringes are going to become more and more important, and the fringes on the left and the right need to be avoided. We need to watch carefully the fringes.

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!"
