GLENN: I want to talk to those people who have listened and you may not have moved on my words before. I talked to a woman yesterday. She said, Glenn, my husband and I have listened to you for a long time. She said, I was listening to you one day with three years ago when you said, please, if you're in the stock market, please get your money out; someone must have something remaining, please get your money out. She said, we listened to you then. She said, I heard it and I was going to talk to my husband. My husband came in the door and he said, honey, I need to talk to you, I just listened to Glenn Beck and he said get the money out and it just sounds right to me, we've got to get our money out. She said, you saved, you saved our money. Let me tell you something. I didn't. Because that call went out to millions of people and very few people actually acted on it. Those who did saved their money. I could be wrong. I'm not an economist, I'm not a I'm not an expert on society or religion. I'm not an expert on anything. I come to you as a, just a regular Schmo that quite honestly is an undereducated man. I'm a self educated man. I am an entertainer. No matter what the press wants to use that as a smear, that's who I am. That's what I've always done with my life. But I'm talking to you now as a citizen and as a dad.

I want to give you what I have told you in the last four years. When it comes to the economy, I told you that we weren't headed for a recession; we're headed for a depression, the ultimate depression. I have told you, be very careful with your money. I have told you, I don't know why anybody has their money in the stock market. It's bogus! I have told you and gotten so much heat for saying that the Dow would end up, if it was lucky, at 5,000. I have told you, make a decision on your home. I've told you that I've been trying to sell my home now for, what, two years? But I live in the Northeast in town where it's 95% Wall Street. I have friends who built, who built a $5 million home. That's what it cost them to build it, a $5 million home. They sold it for 1.5. Almost every home in my neighborhood is up for sale. I told you things weren't going to get better; buckle up. I told you that the rich are getting out.

Now let me give you the headlines from today. All of those things I have been hammered for. I told you these things three years ago. I've also told you I don't know the timing of things. I can see over the horizon on some things, I can see the general direction of where we're headed, but I don't know when it's going to happen. It could happen tomorrow, it could happen five years from now. I don't know. I also, I also don't have any idea why I have this ability to see over the horizon other than it's my job. We all have our job, and you in your job, no matter what it is, it's a calling. You have the ability to listen, if you want to be in California, to the universe, or listen to the word of God for your calling in your family in your personal life. Well, my calling is to be on the radio every day and comment about what's happening. And quite honestly if it hadn't have been for my bottoming out, if I hadn't lost everything, if I hadn't have lost my friends, my family, my fortune, my house, everything, if I hadn't have lost everything, and the most important thing was my good name, my ability to look a person in the eye and say, no, really, this is true, and have anybody believe me. If I hadn't have lost everything, I wouldn't have been to a place to where I said, I will never tell a lie because all I want is someone to believe me again when I say something that is true. When you do that, life becomes very easy because you no longer have to keep track of what you said, but extraordinarily hard. Because you say things that you don't want to say. You say things that are unpopular. Is there enough money in the world? Is there enough fame in the world for someone to put themselves in a position to where they know how they'll be remembered in history and it won't be good? Is there enough money? Is there enough fame? The answer to that is no. How evil and irresponsible would I be to have the platform that I have. What kind of monster would I have to be to have the platform that I have and say these things if I didn't believe them? How insane would I be? There are those within the sound of my voice that say, damn right, just as insane as I think you are. There is not enough money and fame for me to live the rest of my life with people like you saying that about me to my children! So maybe you're the one that might be a little misguided. Because it's those voice that have been telling you not to listen to me because the Dow at 5,000 is crazy, because a total collapse of our system is out of you've got to be out of your mind to believe that! We're America! That will never happen! That we're in a depression, we're headed for a depression, not a recession. "That's crazy talk! He's fear mongering!" Those are the voices that are controlling most of this country right now.

Here are the headlines today. Worries about recovery deepen. Hindenburg Omen, which you heard about on this program. Hindenburg Omen happened again last week. The Hindenburg Omen means that there's a 77% chance that the market will correct itself by at least 5%. The Hindenburg Omen, when it happens in September or October, has been the has been the crash of 19, what was it, 1989, the crash of 1929? Does October or September come to mind? It happened again last week. If it happens once, there's a 77% chance of a crash. If it happens twice, all bets are off, as I told you two weeks ago. It's happened twice, and it almost happened three times, in the last ten days.

Next headline: Investors are scattering to safety. Next one: Drop in home prices renew pricing fears. The largest drop in home prices the largest drop in home sales since LBJ. Next headline: Dow faces bouncy ride to 5,000! Next headline: CNBC, economy in depression, not recession.

Look , if you have listened before and haven't acted, maybe you have regretted that. If you have listened before and have reacted because you've seen the pattern, you've seen that I'm not right all the time, but I've got a pretty good track record. I have a much better track record than Joe Biden who says we're moving in the right direction. I beg of you, I beg of you, please, please, please listen to what I have to say today. Please.

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
