GLENN: Now, let me give you now the latest stats on right track, wrong track. Now, this is something that I don't like. I don't like this poll because because it never really tells you

PAT: What does it mean?

GLENN: Barack Obama and I can both say we're on the wrong track. He wouldn't, because he could say that because he would be looking at the same conditions but look at the solutions differently. Say, yeah, well, we're on the wrong track because the Republicans are whatever and I could be saying that we're on the wrong track because we're too socialist and he's he might say we're on the wrong track because we’re not socialist enough. So, it's too nonspecific, but I want to give it to you because if you add another stat to it, it does take on meaning. Right track, wrong track is now at 80 percent wrong track?

PAT: Uh huh.

STU: Well, it depends on what group you're talking about. Rasmussen does a split of basically mainstream voters and the political class. You want the political you want the mainstream voters.

GLENN: Mainstream voters.

STU: Yeah. Mainstream voters 84% say that the country is going the wrong direction, off the track.

GLENN: Okay. 84%. Now, give me the political class and then give me the distance between each other. Now, what the political class is are those in Washington, those who are the ruling class.

STU: Right. The political class is saying 67% of them are saying that we're on the right track. So, the political

GLENN: Almost polar opposites from the people. The people who are in the political class, the ruling class, are almost polar opposite.

PAT: A little out of touch.

STU: Yeah. You've got a 51 point swing there between the two classes and

GLENN: No, no. A what?

PAT: 51 points

STU: 51 point swing. So, if you figure 67 I don't have all the breakouts here, but you figure it's 76, 33 in favor of it for the political class and 6 to 84

GLENN: No, no. You have the add the degree of swing. You have to add the 67 or 60 whatever and 84 to show the degree. You're going in the opposite direction, it's 180 degrees.

STU: Hum. I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for there. I mean, the typical way I would calculate a swing in the polls would be two groups and the difference between them in support which here would be 67 to 16a 51 point swing, which is about the largest swing I've ever seen on anything.

GLENN: No, no. Add these two add these two numbers together and you see your distance. If you add these two numbers, you will see the difference between us. 87% say we're going this direction

STU: 84, yeah.

GLENN: Whatever. And 67 are going the other direction.

PAT: Yes

STU: Yes.

PAT: I see. So

STU: There's probably something above my head there.

PAT: So you're saying we're going different directions on the same line. So, they're 67 points over here and you're 84 over there, you would add those together.

GLENN: This doesn't make any sense to you?

STU: Because it's the same question.

PAT: 148 is what you're going for. I'm not sure it works that way, but I see

GLENN: You're making fun of me. Our toying with me now, like a little mouse.

PAT: I'm just trying to figure out where you're going and I think that's it. Right? You're saying a linear line.

GLENN: Linear line. You're going

STU: This isn't working, no, it's not inches if you have two sides line. One says right direction and you use that for the politician elites and then the other says wrong direction.

GLENN: He's making fun of me.

PAT: Which is 84% of the people.

GLENN: He is absolutely making fun of me.

PAT: I'm trying to make it work for you. I'm trying to get to that 148 number that you want, and sadly

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: I don't think I can I helped you do it.

STU: If you say that the political class is a plus 34 on this question, which 67 to 33, say, and you say the mainstream is minus 68, add 84 to 16, then you can get to 102 point swing if you want to go that way.

PAT: Okay.

STU: I don't know why we want to go that way. That's just doubling the

PAT: If you take both ends of the tangent and you multiply it by pi

STU: Yeah. Exactly. Then you've got to go at least 9 digits.

PAT: Then you take X and you multiply it by relativity over Y

STU: And you put it in the pythagorean theorem.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: You've got work that in there.

PAT: Of course you do.

STU: Once you get that in

PAT: You carry the 2, bring down the 1.

STU: Divide by the upper tractor.

PAT: Then you get Glenn's number of 143 point swing.

STU: 143,000 point swing.

PAT: Yet, when you multiply that number by 100

STU: Thousand

PAT: Thousand

STU: Million, and then you're there.

PAT: And you're right there. It's just that easy. It's just that easy.

GLENN: You're just going to keep going, aren't you?

STU: We have some more time in the show.

GLENN: Just keep going,

STU: There's a gigantic swing there.

PAT: There's a gigantic swing there, no matter whether it's 51 points or 17,386 as Glenn would like it to be. It's big.

STU: Really big.

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."
