Glenn takes no prisoners at CPAC



Video: Glenn at CPAC

CALLER: Thanks, Glenn. You know what? Is that speech as CPAC, it was inspiring. I was cheering at home with my family. I mean, we were actually, I was giving you a standing ovation at times. It was the most amazing speech I've seen from CPAC since Ronald Reagan was there.

GLENN: Thank you, thank you. I what a compliment that is. You know, that was the other reason that I was so nervous about it is I'm a huge Reagan fan. No matter what was printed in USA Today Weekend, did you see this? That apparently I said to this reporter I can't imagine what context I said this in that Ronald Reagan wasn't even a Republican. Unless I said that in the context of, he wasn't a Republican like we know them, he wasn't a progressive Republican, I don't know what context I said that in. But, you know, for Ronald Reagan to give that speech twelve times and then for me to be asked to give it, it was, I don't know, I just felt a real sense of responsibility.

Here's some of the by the way, if you didn't see it, you can see it at GlennBeck.com. Here's some of the pieces. This is where I think William Bennett took umbrage to which was the morning in America. He said this was, this was disheartening, this was disheartening to describe Morning in America like this. Here it is.

GLENN: It is still Morning in America. It just happens to be kind of a head pounding, hung over vomiting for four hours kind of morning in America. And it's shaping up to be kind of a nasty day, but it's still Morning in America!

Now, the reason why I said that, the very next line was, so what made us down on our knees vomiting in the toilet bowl? What was it? What was the poison that made us feel this way? And it was tax and spend. Progressivism. Now, how is that, how is that a downer? That's called the truth. And if you would have watched the entire speech, I think you would have the ending, somebody told me, wow, what an inspiring speech, you know, I didn't get to see the last 15, 20 minutes. You didn't get to see the last 15, 20 minutes? That's the best part. That's where it all ties together.

Then I talked a little bit about Dick Cheney and what he said. Cut 2, please.

It's going to be a very good year, but it's not enough just to not suck as much as the other side. (Applause). I'm a I'm a recovering alcoholic. I'm a recovering alcoholic, and I screwed up my life six ways to Sunday, and I believe in redemption, but the first step to getting redemption is you've got to admit you've got a problem. (Amens). I have not heard people in the Republican Party yet admit they have a problem. And when they do say they have a problem, I don't know if I believe them. I haven't seen the "Come to Jesus" moment of the Republican Party yet. I voted Republican almost every time I've gone. I don't know what they even stand for anymore. And they've got to recognize that they have a problem. Hello! My name is the Republican Party and I got a problem! I'm addicted to spending and big government! (Applause)

GLENN: It I mean, it is strange the way the press is treating this speech. They either are ignoring it which, you know, that's fine, but I don't think that's for no reason because when it first happened, I saw all of the press right away and none of even the New York Times didn't have anything bad to say. And then it started to get buried. And I think that's because I mean, you'll notice MSNBC and CNN, A, didn't cover it, and I wouldn't probably, either, but they're not showing clips of it at all as something that should be said.

PAT: It's not like they shy away from clips if they could bash you with them.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: You know, I mean, we've seen that a thousand, a million times.

GLENN: NBC, I mean, all week.

PAT: But this thing was so well received. And that's why when we were on the way back, I said I'm going to be interested to see how MSNBC and CNN cover this. Well, they didn't. Because there was nothing to really take apart. And the reception at the convention was just so amazing. We were told before your speech that it was Mark Rubio everybody was talking about and you got five standing ovations.

GLENN: I heard eight.

PAT: You got twelve.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: You got twelve full standing ovations and then another six to eight partial, you know, where part of the audience stands.

GLENN: Yeah, it was a little like did anybody else feel like this? It was like the state of the union address.

GLENN: It was.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: People just kept standing up. And there were times when like half the audience was standing up. And I'm like, what are you, that's the progressive side. That's the progressive said.

STU: I said that's one of the annoying things, too, when half the audience stands up and you realize the clapping's not going to stop if you don't also stand up when you're in the crowd. You're like, that was a good line, I'm just going to clap sitting down. And then you realize everybody else is standing up and you go, all right, here we go.

PAT: I guess it was that good, I guess we'll stand up.

GLENN: Let me go for Cut 3 and then we'll take a break.

Not everybody gets a trophy. What is the point of competing for a trophy if everyone gets a trophy? (Applause). Please stop teaching my children that everyone will get a trophy just for participating. What is this, the Nobel Prize?

That was an ad lib.

STU: Very solid line.

PAT: That was some red meat right there.

STU: Which is difficult really.

GLENN: Not everybody gets a trophy. We should start correcting our children's work in red ink again. I mean, I'm tired, what are we? Spin the color wheel now? You corrected my child's work in red ink. "Yes, I did." Well, that's a little traumatic. You know what's even more traumatic? If little Johnny keeps getting these answers wrong when he goes out into the big bad world and he's eaten. That's worse. There is some sort of element of competition to life. "Oh, that's not natural." Really? Go watch the lions eat the weakest.

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."
