GLENN: This is, you know, this is an amazing day in American history and I will tell you that ‑‑ I'll be real honest with you.  I went through the same thing you are probably feeling today and that is, you've got to be kidding me.  You probably are feeling a little bit like I did over the weekend because I knew this was ‑‑ I knew this was coming over the, you know, oh, last few days, and I think most Americans did that they were not going to ‑‑ but we held out hope ‑‑ they were not going to stop.  This proves everything that we said on this program to be right and accurate.  I said after Scott Brown, they will triangulate if they're politicians.  If they are radical revolutionaries, they will press forward and they will step on the gas.  And Saul Alinsky tells them do everything you must do to win. The ends justify the means.  I told you that, that if they are politicians, they will slow down.  If they are revolutionaries, they will speed up.  And that's exactly what they've done.  Led by Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.  Rahm Emanuel wanted to slow down. The radical revolutionaries said "Go."  Well, I have news for them.  Thank you.  Thank you for proving me right.  Thank you for proving me right in a way that Americans now from coast to coast understand because they've seen it.


 


They call this a historic moment, and it is.  Because never in my life did I dream that this would happen in our country, that no matter what it took, bribery, corruption, collusion, threats, arm‑twisting, no matter what it took, they'd ram it through.  This is historic. What happened last night will be remembered as a black spot on this nation's history for all time.  It is a turning point.  It will ‑‑ it does not ‑‑ you tell me how it fits next to the moon landing.  You tell me how this fits anywhere near the people who would not get up from the counter.  You tell me.  You tell me how this is civil rights.  You tell me how this has honor or integrity.  It doesn't.  The fruit of this tree is extraordinarily evil.  The fruit of this tree is corrupt and poison.  This has nothing to do with our founders.  Nancy Pelosi couldn't even get it right last night.  She's like, "And this and the declaration of... it's... pursuit of happiness and now we can all be... healthier when we're pursuing our happiness."  Shut up, you!  But I want to thank them, I want to thank them from the core of my being because I will tell you I have heard from some powerful, powerful Democrats who have said, I can't, I ‑‑ I mean, what happened?  I will tell you what happened.  Exactly what I told you would happen when you put Michael Moore and his cottage cheese ass right next to Jimmy Carter.  You think, I said, you think you are using these radical socialist, communist progressives, but they are using you, and they will eat you.  You think he got that big by eating Cheetos?  He's eating the party.  The Democratic Party is dead.  As my grandparents and as you knew it and as many Democrats knew, it is dead.  There is no place in the Democratic Party.  You want to talk about a big tent:  Unless you went along with Nancy Pelosi, you are out and you will be destroyed.  That was the message.  There is no ‑‑ there's not even a, there's not one chair in the tent.  The Democratic Party is the progressive Socialist Party, period.  If you are a Democrat, you better get while you can.  Or you will be remembered.  You will be remembered as an enemy of the republic.  The progressives are an enemy to the Constitution.  Look it up.  No matter what they tell you now, just like Barack Obama said, "Oh, I've been clear in the past.  I'm not for universal healthcare."  Yes, he is.  Yes, he is.  And in five years you will see.  Because that's all we'll have.


 


I've got an amazing quote from Al Sharpton to play for you about socialism.  I have to thank the progressives for being true to who they are.  And now it is time for Americans to be true to who they are.  And it's happening.  May I just give just the opening, healthcare reform and the radicalization of Betsy and Robbie.  Tonight the House of Representatives passed historic legislation with President Obama's healthcare package and some pundits are saying the battle for healthcare is over.  But far from being over, writes the Huffington Post.  I'm afraid a deeply partisan battle, dare I say a war, is only beginning because of the manner in which this victory was won.  I say this because two friends of mine, Betsy and Robbie, formerly apolitical friends who have been radicalized by the experience of the last 15 months and if they are any indication of the mood of the country I believe they are, the Democratic Party is in for a political wake‑up call of historic proportions in November.


 


No, I got news for ya, and I want to thank the progressives.  Thank you, Jesus, for this miracle.  Because this is not a message that is just going to go to the Democratic Party.  Oh, no, my friends.  This is going to be a message that is going to go to the progressives of any party.  John McCain, Lindsey Graham, get the hell out of the way.  Get your hands off of the Constitution, my friend, because we're coming.  We're coming and we are coming ‑‑ see, you know what?  The people who have won, the people who have all of this, they are the people that have been looking for the handouts.  They are the people who are saying, "Oh, I can't do it on my own."  Look out, brother, because America's about to roll up her sleeves.  We're rolling up our sleeves.  The people who actually work our ass off for a living, we got nothing else better to do now than save our country.  Oh, sure, we have our families, we have our jobs, we have our business.  But you know what?  There seems to be an enemy of our family, our jobs, our schools, our business, our healthcare, our country.  So you know what?  We're going to put everything else on hold and we're going to do some old‑fashioned ass‑kicking come November.  So bring it on, progressives.  Bring it on!  Because you've just woken a sleeping giant. And while all of your buddies, all of your army is standing in line going, "I'd like more, please, please help me out, please, I'd like more, I don't have enough, I can't do it on our own," oh, we can.  We can do it as individuals, we can do it as a group.  We believe in the power of the individual.  We believe in the power of entrepreneurial spirit.  We believe in the power of our own mind!  We believe we can kick your ass down the street!  You need somebody else.  We don't.  Your bucket's about to have a hole in it and you ain't gonna buy no beer.  'Cause we ain't gonna pay for it very, very soon.


 

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!"
