GLENN: I'd like to play the audio now of a Democratic senator picked up by a

microphone saying you know, talking about this, again, a Democratic senator

talking about the system that we now have.

BENNET: It's nothing about because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole

conversation is rigged, the conversation, the fact that we don't get to a

discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is

just rigged. This stuff's rigged.

PAT: I believe, I believe he uses the word "Rigged" either four or five times.

GLENN: And who he's talking to, another senator, is also saying, yes, yes.

PAT: Yes, it is, yes, is rigged. The situation is the agenda has been rigged by

the Democrats. And there's a Democrat, Michael Bennet, from Colorado saying it,

and just happened to be overheard with a live mic during a C Span broadcast.

GLENN: Now, this is after the voting of the Food Safety Act. With the Food

Safety Act.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, why would it possibly be rigged?

PAT: And he wanted, he wanted some discussion I think is all he wanted. He was

wondering why they weren't talking about it, why and they wouldn't because it's

already been rigged.

GLENN: Well, no, but that's ridiculous to say.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: Who would possibly rig something like that?

PAT: Well, we're conspiracy theorists for pointing out that he said it.

GLENN: I don't know why you have to point out that he said it. Who is this

mysterious "He" that you keep referring to?

PAT: Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado.

GLENN: Just like you to come up with a name like that.

PAT: I know. Just pull it out of thin air.

GLENN: Thin air. And then, you know, show the audio. Who could possibly rig it?

Who benefits from the Food Safety Act?

PAT: Hmmm. Where do you begin?

GLENN: Where do you begin?

PAT: Monsanto, I guess?

GLENN: Monsanto.

PAT: That would be a pretty good place to start.

GLENN: Who, who just upped their stock on Monsanto, and I believe it's now the

number one or number two investment of this individual?

PAT: Umm, gosh.

STU: It's probably somebody older? I feel like an older person?

PAT: You feel like not originally from America?

STU: Maybe not, maybe not.

GLENN: I don't know who you're talking about. I have no idea. You conspiracy

theorists are just because through the Tides Foundation which I fund the Apollo

Alliance was born and they wrote the stimulus package, I don't know what you're

talking about. Why would the Food Safety Act be written by any of my minions?

PAT: That's just conspiracy talk. That's all it is.

GLENN: That's all it is.

PAT: It's conspiracy talk.

GLENN: Well, no. I mean, it is conspiracy talk.

PAT: And anti Semitism.

GLENN: To come out and say that the system is rigged.

BENNET: It's nothing about because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole

conversation is rigged, the conversation, the fact that we don't get to a

discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is

just rigged. This stuff's rigged.

GLENN: Yeah, it's rigged, isn't it?

PAT: That is that is amazing. That is amazing. I wonder how often MSNBC will

probably hammer that today.

GLENN: I haven't seen that anywhere.

PAT: I bet they play that over and over.

GLENN: Have you seen that?

PAT: I haven't seen it yet but I'm sure they

GLENN: I haven't seen it.

PAT: They are probably just queueing up the tape right now.

STU: They are saving it up so they can run it all midday.

GLENN: Have you seen it on Fox?

PAT: Actually I haven't seen it on Fox, either.

STU: I haven't watched Fox this morning but I'm sure they

GLENN: You have a Senator on the floor talking about how the whole system is

rigged! That's not news to anyone?

PAT: No, and it wouldn't be, either, if Republicans were in the majority right

now in the Senate or we had a, let's say Republican president like George W.

Bush and they were saying that it was rigged, I'm sure that that wouldn't be a

news item, either. I'm sure if it was Lindsey Graham are or John Cornyn saying

this, I'm sure it wouldn't be a discussion.

STU: It seems like all he's asking for is a discussion about what would be

discussed during the lame duck session.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: That's not exactly a high standard he's looking for.

PAT: No, it's really not.

STU: It's really not.

PAT: It's really not, but they didn't even have that before they voted

apparently and so that's

STU: They needed to talk about Boise State, though. They needed to have Boise

State. Nevada won in that game, and the quarterback's tall and he can run

quickly.

PAT: Very, very, very fast.

STU: And he throws it a long ways.

PAT: A long ways according to Harry Reid.

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?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
