GLENN: Because see, I think they thought that, you know, Glenn Beck because I saw a lot of, Glenn Beck's going to be crying today." No, no, no. That was Patrick Kennedy. He was crying. He was on TV. Do we have that? I'm not crying. I'm actually kind of, I'm kind of sure, I'm disappointed because I really thought, I had this crazy idea that, you know, we the people still mattered to members of the Democratic Party but apparently not. Crazy, old fashioned idea.

But once I got past that, I'm like, good, good, good. Now Americans and I'm going to play the audio for you. Now Americans will know what I said is right. No, no. And you are just not going to shake people off of this now. And you are bringing more people there. You are bringing them! Barack Obama, you yourself said you couldn't govern with 51 votes. You couldn't govern. You didn't even get 51 votes! You had to go through all kinds of tricks. You couldn't even get it done the right way with 51 votes in the Senate! You couldn't do it. So you yourself say you can't govern. You're right. You are right. You are right. Which is weird because also, I think I said about a year ago the good news is these people are radical revolutionaries. They know how to create chaos but they don't know how to govern. Hmmm. Hmmm, that's interesting. It's almost like they don't know how to govern. Which means it's kind of a spooky thing for us which means they have to get more and more dangerous to us. They will reveal themselves because they will become more and more hostile. They will become more and more thug like, more and more dangerous to individuals that stand up. So stick your courage to the sticking place and stand up, jack. Now's the time to be counted. You an American, are you a mouse? Are you European? Is that what you are? I know that my forebearers came here for a reason and it wasn't to be more like Europe. It was to get away from Europe. We've been a different place. So have they turned you into a European, you know, mush mouth? I'm going to lay out some stuff tonight at Fox at 5:00. Yep, we'll see where I'm headed. I think you are going to want to join me. Could be wrong. If you are looking for Obama cash, you are going to have to go find another show. Because this one's not going to be looking for Obama cash. I just don't think you are, either.

Do you have just a quick taste of, just the part where he's crying.

VOICE: And this president stood by. I salute President Obama. He has been the president and even more than my father could have ever imagined. And this speaker that I've supported, Speaker Pelosi, worked hard. She's an unsung hero. Her ambition for children in this country, all of whom are going to get covered under this bill. And my hat is off to her. She's really provided moral and political leadership and worked, worked, worked.

GLENN: Oh, you know what's really great is when you could get your moral leadership from Nancy Pelosi and then get your praise of that moral leadership from a Kennedy, you know we're headed in the right direction.

(OUT 10:20)

GLENN: It's amazing what these people have, what they've done and the trap that they've laid for themselves. You've got all the old people who now are going to be losing their insurance through AARP. How AARP thinks they are going to survive this is beyond me. I mean, it's just, it's incredible. And, you know, it's bipartisan. Yes, the opposition was bipartisan. 34 Democrats joined every single Republican to say no. 34 Democrats. You are right, it is bipartisan. That was it. The rest of them were arm twisted or bought into bribery or they were part of that progressive movement. The only thing that was in lockstep are the Marxists and the progressives and the radicals. That's it. Those are the only ones. But they look good. It's not lockstep as much as goose step which is very, very nice, especially this time of year. Springtime in Hitler for Germany, that whole, that's a snappy number. Anyway, Stu, would you please play the prediction that I made before Scott Brown was elected? Here it is.

STU: This is, yes, this is right before the election, this is the Kennedy audio we're talking about.

GLENN: If you lose Ted Kennedy's seat at this time in history on this issue, how are the rest of the Democrats going to fare in the rest of the country? So if you are dealing with Democrats, here's what's going to happen? Democrats are going to say whoa, whoa, whoa, 1994, we need to triangulate, we need to go back and, you know, we need to be centrists, we need to back off all of this policies. But if they are Saul Alinsky, Marxists, Maoists, progressive revolutionaries, Saul Alinsky teaches step on the gas. He says when you're surrounded, when you're at this point, Saul Alinsky says that's when you accelerate. So let's see what they do. Do they in their actions, not their words, in their actions do they become moderates or do they become Marxists. Do they accelerate? Look at what we're looking at at this point. If Scott Brown wins, Nancy Pelosi has already said we're going to do it anyway. That means in a referendum on healthcare with the deciding vote, if they accelerate like Nancy Pelosi says, that means your voice, your vote doesn't matter.

Let's look at the record. Your voice doesn't matter if Nancy Pelosi accelerates. If they do it anyway, that means you're out of the picture. Now, what they did we're joining back live again. What they did was exactly that. But how did they get Stupak on board? They said just sign an executive order that will usurp the law. That's not the way executive orders work. And if this congress makes it so the president can change the law with a stroke of the pen, that an executive order can override what the law of the land is, congress has created a dictator. Oh, this is going to get fun.

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!"
