Al Gore: Hit the streets!

GLENN: Now let's go to Al Gore, who would like you to take to the streets because our government has failed us entirely.

PAT: Yeah. Well, we heard that last week from him that the government has failed us entirely? You remember that?

GORE: I want to call you to action, but I have to begin by telling you what you know. In all candor the United States government in its entirety, largely because of the opposition in the United States Senate to taking action on clean energy and a solution to the climate crisis, has failed us. America is capable of great things. We always have been and we still are. We have a history of great leadership from our earliest days. The United States Senate has failed to meet the challenge of the climate crisis.

PAT: And, of course, the government has failed in its entirety. So on his blog post he linked the Australian wire service report that tens of thousands of protestors have taken to the streets across Australia to protest on climate change and then he said, across the world, when politicians fail to take action to solve the climate crisis, people are taking action. He added, after excerpting the news reports, it is my hope we see activism like this here in the United States.

GLENN: I wish I could do that.

PAT: So he's calling for people to, tens of thousands of people, I guess, to take to the streets of the United States and start protesting because their government has failed in its entirety.

GLENN: This goes back to Van Jones and ACORN and the unions and everybody else. They are encouraging people to get out into the streets and hold up their signs and be really angry and march and sit down and don't move and all of these things. They are encouraging them, while at the same time tea parties are gathering. And they're demonizing that, except the left has a tendency of getting violent and we've already seen it. That's why it is important that you, as an American citizen, are different. You must stand out. You must be different. This is why I say do not bring any signs to 8/28. Don't bring them. And if you see people with signs, ask them to put them down. And if they won't, I believe they're infiltrators. I'm not expecting infiltrators, quite honestly. I mean, there's enough, believe me. Believe me. There's enough that will

GLENN: Now, with Al Gore, he wants to save the planet and the government has fundamentally failed you. But that's good stuff.

PAT: Yeah, because of the climate crisis, the government has failed you.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Climate crisis?

PAT: Yeah, there's a climate crisis.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: On the other hand we just heard, what, 45 minutes ago from Barack Obama that there's no Social Security crisis.

GLENN: I think they have a hard time defining crisis.

PAT: I think they do. Crisis means a little something to them.

GLENN: No financial, no Social Security crisis.

PAT: Right. But there is a climate crisis.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Because the climate in 100 years will be out of control?

PAT: Or 1,000, whatever.

GLENN: Between 100 and 1,000 years, the climate will be out of control. But within five to ten, Social Security will be out of control.

PAT: But that's not a crisis.

GLENN: That's not a crisis?

PAT: No.

GLENN: I don't understand the word the way they are using it. -- I don't think they know what it means. May I just give you this? Do you know what the fiscal year 2009 agency financial report is called for the Department of Energy? Do you know what they called the report in 2009?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Department of Energy. This is actually from a book that we're releasing here soon. I'm just doing the final edits on it today. The Department of Energy, their annual report called working to save the planet.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's the Department of Energy. Is that a little strange? That's their new goal?

PAT: Because the climate is in crisis, Glenn. The planet, because of our SUVs, the planet is in crisis.

GLENN: Do you drive an SUV?

PAT: Of course, but that's because I have to get from Point A to Point B to save the planet.

GLENN: Yeah, but if I can't get to Point A to point B in order to

PAT: You can walk because you're not you're not fighting to save the planet. You simply are focused on destroying the planet.

GLENN: Okay. But you just take the SUV then and you don't burn up like a bunch of jet fuel to go places, do you?

PAT: Well, I plant trees in Indonesia.

GLENN: You what?

PAT: I plant trees in Indonesia.

GLENN: You plant trees?

PAT: Trees.

GLENN: Okay, that's good.

PAT: That offsets the planet killing carbon dioxide that's coming out of my SUVs.

GLENN: That offsets?

PAT: That offsets the SUVs.

GLENN: Why don't you just stop using the plane?

PAT: Because I must, as I said if you'd listen to me, I must get from Point A to Point B to save the planet.

GLENN: How about using just technology? For instance, I mean, there's like video conferencing.

PAT: Do you know how much CO2 computers use?

GLENN: There's holographic images now that you can put in. It's like you're in the room.

PAT: Again you're expending energy.

GLENN: I understand that, but you're expending much less energy than you would on the Gulfstream.

PAT: That's why I plant the trees in Indonesia.

GLENN: Instead of planting the trees, because I think you have to use computers to be able to transfer funds to Indonesia.

PAT: Well, that's what I'm saying. I must, I must save the planet. And see, in all of my efforts to save the planet, I have to expend some energy. That's why I can't, I can't abide these hypocrites like yourself who drives around in his SUV just to get his fat but from Point A to Point B.

GLENN: But see, that doesn't make me a hypocrite because I don't believe in global warming.

PAT: But you are telling me I shouldn't be using my SUV.

GLENN: Well, because you are telling me I shouldn't use my SUV.

PAT: That's because you're not saving the planet. The Earth has a fever, Glenn.

GLENN: Does it seem like this might be a circular argument?

PAT: It does.

GLENN: Just a little bit?

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."
