Excuse No Violent Behavior

Today I bring you the story of someone we don't know a lot about yet.

He's a guy who was started software company in California and worked hard on it until his business went out of business. He was divorced; had no prospects for a job in California; was in New York but moved to Texas where he was living on his savings and apparently the news of the day drove him to the point of insanity.

Let me be clear: His acts today were the act of a madman.

What we know so far is that he wrote a manifesto, set his house on fire then got into an airplane and flew it into a building in Austin, Texas — a building that housed the IRS.

When I first saw the crash, I wondered if it was a mistake. It reminded me of Sept. 11. I was watching "The Today Show" when they said a plane flew into the World Trade Center. When I saw the gigantic hole, I realized it couldn't have been a mistake. No pilot would fly a plane into a building on a clear day.

The same was true today.

The pilot wrote a manifesto and when the authorities found it on the Web they took it down so they could look at it first.

He was quite appalled that government could bail out two entire industries — spending billions in days — while health care was unresolved.

He wrote that the tax code is so complicated that it holds the people accountable to a tax code that only an industry of lawyers and accountants can understand.

He wrote: "I am finally ready to stop this insanity. Well, Mr. Big Brother IRS man, let's try something different; take my pound of flesh and sleep well."

It was several pages of lunacy. He ended it with this: "The communist creed: From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. The capitalist creed: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed."

When you hear his anti-business and anti-capitalist ravings he sounds like parts of a Van Jones speech. When you listen to his anti-tax ravings he sounds like he is reading bumper stickers off the signs of a Tea Party.

At this hour, I have no idea if this guy is left or right, but here's the point: It doesn't matter. The guy is a killer.

On Sept. 11, we didn't know who orchestrated the attack. By Sept. 20, we knew it was Osama bin Laden. And soon, we started to see people come out and say, "Well, I don't agree with the tactics, but I see his point."

I don't! I don't see Timothy McVeigh's point either.

They're killers. And, as a society, we should condemn all of these guys.

I have told you before: When something bad happens — when someone grabs a gun or like today does something crazy — it does not help the republic, they hurt the republic.

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.
