GLENN: I want to ‑‑ we have to talk about the nuclear ‑‑ no use of nukes, whether they ‑‑ chemical, biological weapons, whatever, they start it, they do ‑‑ whatever.  We're never going to use nuclear weapons.  That's the most, that's the most dangerous thing I think I've ever heard a president say.  Stu is yelling at me.  Go ahead, Stu.  Come on. 

 

STU:  He didn't say that. 

 

GLENN:  Of course he didn't say that. 

 

STU:  I think it's one of the dumbest things I've ever heard in my entire life or worse but he did say there were uses for nuclear weapons. 

 

GLENN:  Yes, they are.  If they are capable of ‑‑ if it's Russia or China, yeah, then we'll use it.  Here's the president.  Here's the president's policy that, what the president's policy should be.  We're going to use everything that we have.  If you attack the United States, we'll get the job done.  We're not going to ‑‑ 

 

PAT:  That's always been our policy. 

 

GLENN:  Right.  We're not going to start with nuclear weapons, but nothing comes off the table, nothing, ever.  Why would I tie my hand? 

 

STU:  Even if this was his will policy and which you can make an argument for ‑‑ 

 

GLENN:  It is the policy. 

 

STU:  But what I'm saying is if it was his policy, that's fine, I guess.  I mean, you can have whatever policy you want as the president to use weapons, I guess.  But it's like, that should be ‑‑ we shouldn't be telling people. 

 

GLENN:  No. 

 

STU:  There's no benefit in that. 

 

GLENN:  I agree with you.  I agree with you.  The president of the United States can say to himself and to his staff members, guys, we're never using nuclear weapons, I don't care what you say, never, we're not using them.  That's good.  But you don't tell everybody that. 

 

STU:  The whole point of a nuclear arsenal is a deterrent.  You want people to believe that you will use them if you are attacked. 

 

GLENN:  This guy is ‑‑ this guy has put us in ‑‑ behind the eight ball unlike anybody I've ever seen:  "Well, it's time for us to make the world a safer place."  Tell me exactly what has happened in the last sixty years that has made the world such a dangerous place with nuclear weapons.  Tell me how we have been threatened by nuclear weapons that wasn't solved through strength. Show that policy to me.  They have had this since Truman.  We've had these policies since Truman.  What's the new information here that our president has that says that we need to change our policy?  What has been the problem?  The only time we're ever threatened with nuclear weapons is when we're weak:  North Korea and Iran.  We're weak.  We get into bed with them and we're like, okay, well, we're just going to talk it out, we're going to trust you.  Trust but verify.  Peace through strength.

 

My favorite bumper sticker is the bumper sticker with the peace symbol made out of a B‑52.  Have you ever seen that? 

 

PAT:  I don't think so. 

 

GLENN:  You haven't seen that?  Oh, I love this bumper sticker.  It's a peace symbol but it's a B‑52 bomber.  And it just says peace through strength.  There's nothing better than that.  We don't need to flex our muscles.  We don't need to, we don't need to be every place.  I'm not saying that I'm a guy who ‑‑ I used to be a guy who was like, let's go and wipe them off the face of the ‑‑ nope.  Nope, let's mind our own business.  Let's mind our own business.  We can learn from our mistakes of the past.  But I got news for ya.  If you hit the United States with a biological weapon, I am going to wipe you off the face of the Earth, if that's what it takes. 

 

PAT:  You are forgetting, though, who we're dealing with now.  That's the quintessential ingredient here is he's not Harry Truman, he's not Bill Clinton even, and he's certainly not that dummy George W. Bush.  He is the Chosen One, Barack Obama, and through the strength of his charisma, he will bring healing to the planet. 

 

GLENN:  Here's my question.  Here's my question. 

 

PAT:  You laugh. 

 

STU:  No. 

 

GLENN:  No, I did. 

 

PAT:  You were buying it? 

 

GLENN:  No, I did.  That's why I didn't comment on it. 

 

PAT:  Glenn took it absolutely seriously. 

 

GLENN:  That's true. 

 

STU:  A joke, a separate joke told in this room. 

 

GLENN:  Now here's the question that I have, and I mean this sincerely.  If you would put ‑‑ I wish I had the chalkboard here.  If you would put ‑‑ you know we have a chalkboard. 

 

PAT:  Go get it. 

 

GLENN:  It won't really work on radio.  If you put two timelines together or two ‑‑ put the Soviet Union and the United States, but you have them moving politically in the opposite directions.  We've always moved in the opposite directions.  You know they've always been bigger government; we've been smaller government.  Now our government has moved toward bigger government and they moved toward smaller government, okay?  Their fundamental transformation of the Soviet Union happened because of an economic collapse because they spent themselves into oblivion.  I mean, the parallels are shocking.  You have Osama Bin Laden.  You have a never ending war.  You have enemies that are spending them into oblivion.  You have the collapse of the Ruble.  You have all of it.  All of it.  And you also have, the enemies around the world knowing that it can't last.  I mean, that was Ronald Reagan's secret.  While we were sitting here complaining about our own debt, Ronald Reagan knew that we could take on more debt at that time because the Soviet Union couldn't.  When his advisors said, what are you doing with Star Wars; we don't even have Star Wars.  Shut your mouth.  Shut up.  Well, why are you using this as such a chip?  Why are you possibly saying Star Wars?  Shut up!  We want them to believe that we have this technology which will cause them to spend more money.  We're burying them in a mountain of debt.  We will collapse them through their economy.

 

Does this sound familiar at all?  Then comes Gorbachev, and Gorbachev starts something called Perestroika because he knew that the people of Russia weren't happy.  He knew that the system had corrupted itself.  It was a bad system.  But he thought, "Well, we'll just do a little bit of this."  Well, you don't open the door a little bit on freedom.  And all of the people said, you can't do that. You can't open it a little bit.  This system will fail if you open it up just a little bit.  "No, no, no, we'll be fine.  We'll be a nice hybrid."  What happened?  The enemies, us, put the added pressure on their system financially.  We also sowed the seeds of dissent inside their own country and rip them apart politically by going after people in Poland and everything else.  So what happened then?  Boris Yeltsin comes in.  This is before the Soviet Union collapses.  He makes a deal for the Russian federation. He goes out in the middle of the night into the middle of the woods and makes a deal for the Russian federation and says, look, guys, you know this is going to collapse and I know this is going to collapse.  They signed a deal, he went in front of the proletariat and said, "You've got an hour to decide.  There's going to be blood in the streets or you're going to okay this deal."  A Politburo, yeah.  You are going to take the ‑‑ you are going to take this deal or they're going to take any communist out and they are going to drag us into the streets and they are going to shoot us in the head, and that's just the way it is.  You can either change your uniform and move into a suit and we'll save what we've got, and many of you will become powerful and rich, or we'll have Civil War. Which is it?  You have an hour to decide.  They decided to transform the Soviet Union into a freer place.  It didn't work out for them.  I contend we're on the exact same trajectory.  I contend we are repeating the Soviet Union.  We're doing the same thing, and our arrogance, just like their arrogance said, no, no, no, we'll survive.  The question is, is Barack Obama Gorbachev or Yeltsin?  I think you could make the case that George Bush was Gorbachev.  Let's just open the door a little bit more on socialism.  Let's just open the door just a little bit on, I need to betray the free market, destroy the free market to save the free market.  That doesn't make any sense.  That's Gorbachev.  I need to retain ‑‑ to retain the Iron Curtain, I need to take the Iron Curtain down.  It doesn't work!  So is this president Gorbachev or is this president Yeltsin?  Or there is a third option:  I'm completely wrong.

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.
