Completely Friendless...Again

GLENN: By the way, I want you to know we're completely friendless. We've done it yet again. Do you know that?

STU: Do I know it? Yes, I know it. I listen to this program.

GLENN: We've done it again. We're not going to -- it doesn't matter. Romney could win. Have you noticed how Romney has -- what he's been saying lately?

STU: What about?

GLENN: About talk shows?



Glenn... Alone and friendless once again...

STU: No.

GLENN: Yeah. He's like, Rush Limbaugh is supporting me, is coming out for me; Laura Ingraham has been supporting me, Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity, Bill Bennett, Skippy Johanson.

STU: Well, you haven't endorsed anyone. You are not an endorser.

DAN: Yeah, to be fair, Glenn, they have called and asked if you were going to endorse and you have not. So --

GLENN: Has Rush Limbaugh endorsed Romney?

STU: I don't know if he's endorsed specifically.

GLENN: See, that's what I mean.

DAN: I haven't seen where he said that.

GLENN: I don't think he's endorsed. I think Hugh Hewitt has endorsed him.

STU: I know Hannity said something of the effect of if I had to vote for him today, I would vote for him.

DAN: I think Hannity was a little stronger than that.

GLENN: I'm changing. I'm not voting for Romney.

STU: Come on, shut up. If he sends you a gift basket, would that help?

GLENN: If he sent me a gift basket. Mitt, you send me a gift basket, I might go to the polls today. I'm going to probably stand there in Connecticut because I can't actually vote because I'm not a Republican, but I might stand there, along with all the Ron Paul supporters who are standing. They're everywhere in Connecticut. There are signs everywhere. There are no bed sheets left in Connecticut. They are all -- I don't know what anybody's sleeping on. I think I might have been the only person in Connecticut that actually slept on a bedsheet last night because they are all hanging over the freeway. It's nice. It's like, welcome to Connecticut, home of white trash. You know, it's like, do you remember when our mothers -- you guys are probably too young for this. Mom used to have the clothespins. Grandma used to have the clothespins and she would hang the sheets out in the backyard on the, you know, on the clothesline. That's what I feel like we're living in, except all of our sheets, instead of having Snoopy patterns or something like that, they all say revolution, but they do say love backwards, which is really cool.

STU: Yeah, Ron Paul not going to be a factor today unfortunately for his supporters.

GLENN: Don't count it out.

DAN: He is doing well in the Internet polls.

STU: He is doing well in internet polls. It doesn't seem to correlate for whatever reason but he did come in 2nd in Nevada but he is not going to challenge that in any state tonight. Unless the polls are all wrong. Maybe they are. They have shown that before.

DAN: You missed it here, Glenn, on this program. Ron Paul's, his piece for the Glenn Beck newsletter went out on Friday when you were not here. It was a very good piece on the economy but apparently not moving his votes.

GLENN: What did it -- how did it read?

DAN: Did very well. It was a good read. It was a good read.

STU: You seem a little out of sorts today, Glenn, I've got to say. Is everything okay?

GLENN: I'm fine. What do you mean I seem a little out of sorts?

STU: I don't know. You just seem a little -- I don't know. You just seem a little off kilter.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Is this the first break back?

GLENN: I did have a scope from my mouth to my ass yesterday. I mean, that might have --

STU: That's not necessary. No one needs to -- no one needs to know that. Can you not tell anyone ever again? Is that possible?

GLENN: I'm just saying that might have done it. Wouldn't it do it to you? You would be like, I don't know, I'm a little out of sorts.

STU: Well, maybe that's it.

GLENN: Had a camera and a little claw where they are just picking like --

STU: All right, all right, we got it. We got it. Thank you.

GLENN: Picking strawberries inside of me.

STU: All right. Thank you for that. No one --

GLENN: I'm just saying.

STU: You just lost three quarters of our audience.

GLENN: We don't have any audience left.

STU: Now we're down to two people.

GLENN: Here is the thing. Is that you or Dan and me?

STU: Well, Sarah's long gone.

GLENN: Yeah. Because I'm barely listening now anyway. Did you see what happened with Rush Limbaugh and the Washington Post this weekend? He said, quote, I believe the country will suffer with either Hillary, Obama or McCain. I would just as soon Democrats take the hit rather than Republicans causing the debacle.

Here's the key. This is exactly what I said two weeks ago on this program: I would prefer not to have conservative Republicans in congress paralyzed by having to support, out of party loyalty, a Republican President who's not a conservative. And that's the problem. You know what, I spoke to the young Republicans out in Idaho over the weekend. I have to tell you about an amazing -- I did this fundraiser for this family, the Clark family, something absolutely amazing. In fact, we have to try to get Ted Nugent on the phone today. Something amazing happened before this fundraiser started.

I got up and, under doctor's orders, he said bed rest and go speak to the Republicans. So I did. I spoke to the Young Republicans at a university, and I think they expected -- I mean, quite honestly the leader of the young Republicans went... when I said, I'm voting for Hillary Clinton over John McCain. He went a little white but, you know, they kept asking me: What exactly do we do? How do we get back on track? What do we do? Here was my answer: You need to define what you are.

See, here's the problem with the Republicans right now. Nobody knows what they are. They don't know what they are. You can't -- you know what they are trying to do? They've got a bunch of machinery and they are not even sure what they're building. They think they're building a car but they are not really sure because nobody has gone back and looked at the plans and said, okay, here's how we're going to design it, here's how we're going to build it, here's how it's different, here's how we're going to make it faster or more fuel economic. They don't even know what they're doing. Somebody has to step back, and it's going to take the young Republicans because I think it's going to take a while for this to repair itself.

I'm going to make a prediction later on in the program on what I think's going to happen on Super Tuesday. I've got to think it through. Stu says I'm out of sorts. They were picking stuff out of my stomach.

STU: See, this is what I'm talking about. This is the part we don't need to know. I mean, people might be interested. People might be interested in your prediction about Super Tuesday.

GLENN: It's sitting in a jar some placements

STU: They are not interested in what's in a jar. None of them are. They all hate hearing about it, all of them.

GLENN: Doctor said could be cancer. Doctor said I don't -- could be -- I don't know, could be mushed up Special K. I'm not sure.

STU: This is terrible. Why are you breaking -- why are you talking about this? Can't you talk about -- there's a huge election going on today. That's what people are talking about.

GLENN: I'm trying to talk about it. You keep interrupting.

STU: I'm not interrupting. You --

GLENN: So here's the thing. So here's what I told them. They have got to go back and center themselves in values. What is everybody doing? Everybody's looking at John McCain. They are selling out their values because they are like, he can win, he can win. I don't want to win. I don't want to win if we're going to sell out everything we stand for. Guys, we won in 2004. Is that a good thing? Look what we've got. We've got prescription frickin' drugs. We've got a budget that's out of control. We've got a border that's out of control. We have border agents in jail. We've got a President who is actually supporting an illegal alien in the Supreme Court that could change all of our laws and make us bow down and worship the Hague. I don't know if that's a good thing. Well, mild there. I know that's a bad thing! We don't win to win, but that's what made us different, you know? I thought if our President was going to lie under oath, even if it was about sex, we would throw his ass out. We don't want him there. We stand for something. And the minute you stop standing for something, you lose in the end. You might win short-term but you're going to lose in the end. And here's the real problem. There's nobody as an example, there's nobody. The college Republicans are being beat over the head by their liberal professors. They are being beat over the head with socialism and incorrect principles. They are being beat over the head by the media. They are all now too young to really remember Ronald Reagan. They don't even know what conservatives stand for. They don't even know what it means. A Republican to them is what we've had for the last eight years. They barely remember the Newt Gingrich revolution.

It's time the Republicans find their soul. It's time the Republicans find their values. It's time the Republicans -- you know, what's crazy to me is conservatives are made to look like they're so far right. They're not. They're not. It's that the country has moved so far left. If you study history. If you go and read what our country was like just 100 years ago, there was a movement, a Progressive movement that is now fully flowering to move us away from the principles that we got started with. This isn't who America is. This is who we've allowed ourselves to become. And I don't want to be that person. I don't want to be that country. That's not who we are. We're not out of step with the mainstream. The mainstream has been duped. The mainstream doesn't know what it is anymore.

How do you think Ronald -- do you think we're really that different from when Ronald Reagan ran? We're not. Why is Obama winning right now? Why is Obama sweeping -- do you think Obama is sweeping up now because he's the most liberal senator in the Senate? Think of that. The most liberal senator in the Senate. Do you think he's cleaning house right now, at a time of war with no war experience, because of his record? He's cleaning house because he's exciting. He's cleaning house because he's a good speaker. He's cleaning house because "It says something about me that I voted for him."

I think it was in the New York Times today. This woman says, "I'm so excited. We win either way. It's either a woman or an African-American." What about the policies, America? I don't want John McCain in office. I don't want a Republican in office unless they truly understand Republican, what used to be Republican principles. If they don't understand real conservative principles and they have the cohones -- yes, I'm bilingual -- to actually implement them. Otherwise what difference does it make? What difference does it make? We all end up in the same place and we're running out of time, gang.

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!"
