Glenn Beck: America Heading Toward the Wrong Tracks





Watch "Glenn Beck" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel

I want to talk to you about Goldman Sachs, the Supreme Court justice nominee and freedom of speech. And I want to start with what the founder of the Daily Kos said:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MARKOS MOULITSAS, DAILY KOS: I mean, this is what the people voted for. And it's one thing to oppose it on policy. It's another thing to use the kind of exterminationist, eliminationist rhetoric that they are using in appealing to violence and that sort of thing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Extermination talk? I haven't heard any of that. Why would he say that? How could he paint the right like Nazis?

When he says that people on the right don't mind Bush because he's "their guy," he's right, if you are part of the progressive movement. And he makes my point on the railroad tracks, let me show this to you again.

In Europe, it's been kings and rulers, fascists and communists are the left and right of the European train. Those are not the rails of America. In 1791, we diverged from those tracks.

But I forgot something: the ties. What ties those two rails together? Socialism.

How do you build a railroad track? You have to put down the ties first. Once you get the ties down then you lay the rails. Laying the rails is the easy part. You have to get the foundation right first. And that's why it's taken us a hundred years, because our railroad ties were different a hundred years ago. And we have purposely neglected them, been told to neglect them, been told to dismiss them so they would fall in disrepair.

What is the engine that runs on this track? The free market — that's where progress comes from.

It wasn't a government that invented the light bulb. It wasn't the government that came up with the assembly line. It wasn't the government that came up with the potbelly stove. It's the free market. Actually, no: It's people tied together on these principles — these railroad ties — using the Constitution and equal justice, holding it together on the right road that allows that engine to push forward create whatever it is you want to create.

So you can build the light bulb, the automobile or if you are on the communist side? Gulags. If you are on the Nazi side? Death camps. This engine will take you anywhere. It's what you are tied to.

What happened to the free market? People will say the free market is evil, the free market is bad. No, the free market just is. If it's running on railroad ties that have been disassembled and are in disrepair. And so the rails are crooked and they are not running right and they've brought this train back down to the European railroad ties and rails, which is socialism.

That's the tie: socialism. On the right in Europe, it's Nazism and fascism. In Europe on the left rail, it's communism. And what ties them together and allows both of them to run? Big government socialized structure.

What are the ties in America? Faith, hope, charity, self-reliance, personal responsibility, accountability, honesty, integrity. They are the values and principles. Those are the ties. And they have been disintegrating. We haven't been updating them. We haven't been refreshing them. We haven't been shoring them up. We've been taking them apart.

And what are the rails?

The first rail is the Constitution and the second rail is equal justice under the law. Washington said we're a nation of laws, not of men. Meaning Timothy Geithner, pay your damn taxes; I have to. Meaning, you know and I know that if I did what Goldman Sachs did or any of these other weasels that are not being pointed out, I wouldn't be getting bailed out. I'd go to jail; so would you. Equal justice.

It's what Martin Luther King fought for and has been perverted. He didn't say I want more justice. He said I want equal justice. Martin Luther King said, I have a dream. Where white children and black children can play together, can be together. That you will judge a man of the content of character, not the color of his skin.

We're now talking about appointing a Supreme Court justice on diversity. Diversity? We should have uniformity: character! Do they have character? Character is a railroad tie and we were told a decade ago that character doesn't matter. Yes, it does.

Character doesn't matter in the European style of system. If you have socialism, character doesn't matter. Position matters. Power matters. Character doesn't matter.

We cannot fix the free market system, because it's not broken. The railroad ties are. This is why faith, hope and charity are the answer. You've got to fix you.

Coming up I'm going to show you the IMF and how there's a push for a global tax. The answer isn't more government — it lies closest to you. You make the difference in your own life. Commit yourself today. I will be honest in all of my business dealings. I will be honest in everything I do. No matter what that truth is, I will seek the truth. Knowing that is a never ending journey.

I read a great quote last night: "Trust people who are seeking the truth. Question people who say they've found it."

Our understanding of the truth is ever expanding. The truth never changes, but our understanding does, because the truth is so gigantic, you can't get your arms around it. You'll spend the rest of eternity trying to get your arms around the ultimate truth. You are going to spend your whole life trying to find out and figure out the truth of who you are and the power that you have as the individual. I can tell you that there are certain things that I believe. I can tell you that I think we're on the truth. I don't know what the truth is, but we're pursuing it.

Thank God for our Founding Fathers, because it's my right to pursue it because it makes me happy to pursue the truth. And that pursuit is going to cause tension. Because many Americans want to continue to live the lie that you can have everything, that character doesn't matter, that you can rack up debt and it doesn't matter. Getting them out of that lie is going to be uncomfortable. But tension — struggle — is good. Violence is bad.

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."
