GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. You know, I wrote the words to this theme song this year and they are words that I believe to the core of my being. We just have to remember who we have and we will be the key. I'm going to post this on the free newsletter tonight at glennbeck.com, but I if you're watching on the Insider Extreme, Don, can you take Camera 2 here from behind and show what's on my screen?

This just came in from Phil Kerpen. It is the Obama way of subverting the Constitution. I mean, this is, this is his agenda. Look at this, Pat. This is his agenda. Go up a bit on 2, please. There you go. Thank you.

So, here's his agenda. Everything comes down from Obama at the top and you have cap and trade. The dotted lines are the way it's supposed to work, cap and trade. The dotted line goes to the House. It goes to the House. It fails in the Senate. Internet regulation, supposed to go to the House and Senate. It fails in both. Union card check, it passes in the House, fails in the Senate. Debt commission, fails in the Senate, never gets to the House. Healthcare, the Senator Brown victory should have sent a message but then it went to the House and the Senate. We don't know exactly what's going to happen. It passed in the Senate, but then if you pass he's blocked every step of the way. Phil Kerpen made this chart to show how he is subverting the process.

PAT: That is pretty interesting, yeah.

GLENN: Cap and trade, he goes around the House and Senate and he goes down to the EPA. Internet regulation, he goes past where it fails in the House and Senate, goes to the FCC. Union card check, he gets Craig Becker nominee. It doesn't it fails in the Senate and so he gives it possibly a recess appointment. Debt commission, it fails in the Senate. He issues an executive order. Healthcare, reconciliation. He has subverted the process, the legitimate process every step of the way. And nobody seems to have a problem with this. My thanks to Phil Kerpen for this. Phil, I you've got to show on this on television. It's unbelievable. It's just unbelievable. We'll include this in the free e mail newsletter today so you can see and because it's so clear. And when you look at it, you say to your friends, Okay. Show me how is this American? How is this the American process? I can't think of it. But this isn't it. I have a friend who will remain nameless who has a friend who will remain nameless. My friend, who will remain nameless, is not a progressive. His friend is. His friend said, You know what? You've got to see some of the things that are going on in Washington. And his friend knows who he is. He knows he's friends with me. And he said, Okay. He said, you ought to go a private, closed door progressive meeting in Washington, because some pretty big names are going to be there. He said, Okay. So, he goes down and he brings down his video camera and he goes in and they said, oh, you can't bring in your video camera. You can't video record this. He aid said, oh, okay. So, he left his video camera there. They didn't take away his cell phone. They didn't say he couldn't record the audio and he recorded the audio. I'm going to give you one piece of many, many things that were said that we will be exposing here in the next few days. This one is from Chuck Schumer. Chuck Schumer, not thinking that he's being recorded, is talking about a new process, you know, the Constitution see, I show you this chart from Phil Kerpen and you see how they are they're subverting everything, they're just going around everything. Well, Chuck Schumer, he has an idea, too, and he shared it in a room full of progressives, plus one. And here's what he said.

SCHUMER: This is something that people have looked at (inaudible.) So, you can't just rush it out. You have to really study it carefully and that's what the hearing (inaudible) and the rules committee who has jurisdiction over what this is intended to. There have been some very interesting papers written that said that the Constitutional right, for instance, of the Senate to make its own rules supercedes the two thirds that you can't change the rules but only when Congress writes new rules at the beginning of each Congress, every two year period where we reorganize ourselves. That's something we want to explore.

PAT: I'll bet you do.

GLENN: I'll bet you do. So, let me see. You've got to play by the rules that are set out in the Constitution. You've got to play by the rules and if you want to change those rules, you have to have two thirds vote to change those rules, unless an there's something we're exploring you just set out new rules at the beginning of the year. Excuse me?

PAT: Where does it say that in the Constitution? We can super seed the Constitution if we want to, if we decide to at the beginning of the session? What?

Glenn: Why would you have the whole two thirds thing? Why not just say, you want to set out your own rules at the beginning of the year. This is something we're exploring academically. We're just exploring this. Ways to get around, ways to oh, cap and trade, passed in the House, failed in the Senate. Give it to the EPA. Internet regulation, didn't pass in the House, didn't pass in the Senate. Give it to the FCCC. Union card check, passes in the House, not in the Senate, nominate some nominate somebody, Craig Becker. Oh, that didn't pass in the Senate? I'll just give it a recess appointment. Debt commission, doesn't go by the Senate. Just do an executive order. Healthcare? Doesn't look like you can do it the right way. Do it through reconciliation. And if that doesn't work, what is the new thing they're calling it now? The new word

PAT: The Slaughter rule.

GLENN: The Slaughter rule. Don't even vote on it. It's something they're exploring. I don't think I mean, if this is isn't a if this were a company, this company would be the most evil company on the planet. If you can you imagine having tape of one of its officers let's say it's Enron. Let's say it's Exxon and we had tape of one of its chief officers saying, You know what? Look. The law says this but we're exploring some other ways to get around the law. If we had on tape, how long do you think before that officer would be fired? If we had on tape as many pieces of evidence of corruption that we have in Washington, do you think any company would survive? No. Why? Because you would stop using them. You would stop giving them money. You would stop buying their products. You would boycott them! But, see, by law you must buy their products and they're about to give you more products, more products, that work as horribly as all the other products that don't work and they will force you to do it and then they're going to come into your business and they will tell you that you've got to run your business as they run their government. They will force you into corruption. Look. We can do this the easy way or we can do this the hard way. Holy cow. I'm glad that they're working on how to get around the laws and the rules, Chuck Schumer and those in Congress. You should ask yourself in today's world if anything is really ever not heard. You should ask yourself, do I what I'm saying right now do I mind coming out? You should ask yourself, is everything that I have, when it's written, is it is it is it really just between me and the receiver? Especially those who are in that meeting, you should ask yourself, what did I say? Because we know what you said and we're going to play what you said. We're just a little busy on healthcare right now. Gosh. I don't mean to drag out the agony. I don't mean to make you sweat. I hate to do that. You're so busy trying to make my life miserable and everybody else's life miserable. I hate to have you lose a second of sleep because you're wondering, what was it I said? I'm sure you said all honest things. Don't miss a second of the broadcast, radio and television, and don't miss tonight, our Insider Extreme live from Broadway. You don't want to miss it. It starts at 8:00, live on stage, The Future of History and then an honest, what, 40 minutes, an hour of questioning from you, the audience.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

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?

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.
