GLENN: Now, let me talk about something else that is in the news. Jim Wallis in the Washington Post, which -- we've been busy this week on television and I think -- I think next week -- we've got some things on Andy Stern and Jim Wallis that I want to share with you, but in the Washington Post today, there is a story, a guest voice on views on faith and its impact on the news. What Glenn Beck Meant About Social Justice by Stu Burguiere. How did this come about? You wrote an editorial. How did this come about?

STU: Well, there was an interview going on with Jim Wallis about you, which is one of the 15 million he's done in the past three weeks.

GLENN: Strangely, most of them with the Washington Post.

STU: Many of them, yes, with the Washington Post.

GLENN: That seems strange, doesn't it?

STU: Yeah. And I felt it was important to show -- to just show how disingenuous he is because he absolutely knows what you are talking about.

GLENN: Oh, he does.

STU: 100% and he continues to act as if he's just mesmerized by how evil you are on this topic, so he can continue to get interviews. I mean, that's all he's doing. He's just promoting himself at this point.

GLENN: So, let me read it. I love this. In the Washington Post today, editorial from Stu Burguiere. Like everyone else in America, Glenn Beck thinks social justice, if it is defined as charitable outreach to the poor, is a good idea. He supports it. He believes in it. He does it. In fact, I do it at a much, much, much higher rate --

PAT: We've got to get into this.

GLENN: -- than President Obama and Joe Biden, much higher rate. Anyway, so, what's the problem? I mean, social justice seems to be an innocuous phrase, right? It paints the picture of fairness. I guess that's why father Charles Coughlin used it when naming his National Union For Social Justice and his publication Social Justice Weekly. Coughlin was an anti-Semitic religious broadcaster in the 1930's.

Wait a minute. A religious broadcaster. Huh. That was anti-Semitic.

He used the banner of social justice to attack capitalism, warn of Jewish plots against Christian civilization, and to promote his adoration for Italian Fascist Benito Mussolini. This is part of the information Glenn revealed that special TV show about the American extremism of the 20th century. In context of promoting that special, he began talking about how the far left was once again using this terminology to politicize churches. The specific example he named was reverend Jeremiah Wright. He told his listeners that if they were in a church that preaches -- that preaches Jeremiah Wright style social justice, they should leave or at least get educated on what it exactly means. It took him all of eight seconds to clarify the type of church he was speaking of but that was long enough for most of the media to end the transcript. Suddenly Glenn was accused of attacking the central tenants of the Bible because he supposedly believed to any church that wants to help the poor should immediately be evacuated. This absurd narrative is mainly the property of reverend Jim Wallis. To restate the obvious, some simply use the term social justice as a substitute for outreach to the poor. This is not the kind of social justice Glenn was talking about. The fact that this term has been utilized for purposes other than good Christian charity is well-documented. One scholar explained it quite clearly, quote, it is true that the term has been used by the right (scholar) and the left for all kinds of ideological purposes that aren't necessarily the purposes of Christ, end quote. The scholar, Jim Wallis. But for Wallis to continue getting attention, he must act as if he believes Glenn is against churches helping the poor. Any honest observer would realize that isn't the case. Is anyone on earth against charitable outreach to the poor? Certainly not Glenn.

In his book Arguing with Idiots, Glenn describes helping those less fortunate as an obligation. He wrote that capitalism will inevitably care if individuals stop caring about the welfare of others. He just believes? ( Not a government bureaucracy. When was the last time you felt charitable on April 15th? Of course, these attacks are just opportunistic politics. Jim Wallis and his politically motivated foe anger are now doing interviews about Glenn at the (Tiger Woods mistress. The left is taking a break from calling Glenn too religious to now call him not religious enough. But Wallis -- but Wallis's repeated attempts at becoming the victim are laughable. He wrote to Glenn, quote, I have no reason to attack you, end quote. Some would find that sentence questionable, considering he's a spiritual visor to President Obama. The New York Times reported that Wallis was one of the five pastors meeting with the Obama's for private prayer sessions and, quote, discussions on the role of religion in politics, end quote. The Times noted, quote, in contrast to the other four, his contact with the President has been focused more on policy than prayer, end quote. Time magazine notes, quote, he has the ear of the man in the oval office, end quote. During their reporting of Wallis's attacks on Glenn, both Time and the New York Times mysteriously forgot their own reporting on this topic. A report of religious news service says Wallis is one of a small group helping to, quote, shape decisions about the Iraq war, health care, reform, and the economy, end quote. It's up to Americans to decide whether this or any level of presidential access is appropriate for someone like Wallis. 13 days after 9/11, just 13 days after 9/11, he was already blaming the attacks on the sins of U.S. foreign policy, including global domination and militarism. He hoped 9/11 would become a teachable moment in which we could learn our role in creating desperation among the terrorists. Desperate people do desperate things, end quote. He explained later -- he later explained our foreign policy as, quote, dangerously Messianic, arrogant, and bordering on the idolatrous and blasphemous, end quote. Wallis is just as revealing when speaking about his current economic views. Quote, I'm not a liberal; I'm a radical, end quote. Asked if he was calling for the redistribution of wealth across society, he responded, quote, absolutely, without any hesitation. That's what the gospel is all about, end quote. This is a man that believes an affluent church is no less than, quote, an affront to the gospel, end quote. And he is talking about Glenn being divisive? But on the bright side, he has illuminated some common ground between Glenn and the President. While Wallis describes reverend Wright as mainstream -- that is in quotes -- both the President and Glenn believe that leaving churches like reverend Wright's is a good idea. The difference is Glenn just advised it and the President actually did it.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
