Glenn Beck: Obama thinks you are stupid

GLENN: I want to play a little bit of audio here from Barack Obama. What he said yesterday about the Tea Party movement. Not only does this guy stick a knife in your chest, but he can't ever resist twisting it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I've been a little amused over the last couple of days where people have been having these rallies about taxes. You would think they would be saying thank you.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Oh. (Screaming.)

GLENN: Here is a large portion of the United States. I mean, the Tea Parties are not perceived in a bad way on their message, although Tea Parties, may I make a suggestion? I think the -- I think what you need to stop -- what you need to stop doing is carrying the message of taxes and government. If you think about yourself, let's say you're going -- you're on the bus. You're going to work. You're sitting on the bus and somebody would say, Hey, I'm for lower taxes and less government and there you are on the bus with a bunch of people who don't really pay attention to an awful lot of stuff. What does that mean to them, especially when you know 47% of the population, they don't, they don't pay taxes. Lower taxes? No. I'm fine. I'm not paying any taxes. Less government? Yeah, I guess. But, I mean, I get stuff from them. We don't -- we shouldn't be saying less government, lower taxes. We should be saying more choices, more freedom, bigger paychecks, because that involves everybody. More freedom, more choices, bigger paychecks. That's what we're for, because that's what Barack Obama does. That's what the left does. They control the language. They watch their language very carefully. We're only talking to maybe 50% of the country when we say lower taxes. And he -- look at what he's saying. Look what seas saying. I've lowered taxes for 95% of the American people. Is there any way that's true?

PAT: No.

GLENN: I'm just trying to figure out how he can make that claim other than the press doesn't hold his feet to the fire for anything.

PAT: He lowered withholding and a lot of those people we found out weren't paying taxes, anyhow. So, I don't know how he lowered their taxes unless they actually paid no taxes and then got additional money at the end of the year, which is possible. I don't put anything past this administration, but what 15 million people found out yesterday was even the with holding scam that they were running cost them money this time.

GLENN: Right. And what about the taxes that are buried in the new health care bill?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The health care bill is burying taxes.

PAT: The cigarette tax.

GLENN: Cigarette tax.

PAT: They're pushing -- and thank you, Lindsey Graham, pushing a 15¢ gasoline tax, trying to start up the cap and tax again.

GLENN: Run from your church that talks about social justice in the way that Jeremiah Wright does and run from any candidate that talks like Lindsey Graham. Left, right, doesn't matter.

 

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."
