VOICE: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the two billion and seven parent of the year award pageant, honoring the biggest dirtbags in parenting, the PPI, Pathetic Parent Institute started as a parental education facility but once we found out most of these idiots had no hope whatsoever of being rehabilitated it, blossomed as a procreation of licenses, a sterilization clinic and the world's largest working incinerator gallery this side of Germany. And now the PPI presents two billion and seven parent of the year award. With your host, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Who my wife informed me last night I was a, not a positive potty role model. So I have to practice all day being very excited. "Pee in the potty." Sound genuine? So I'm just trying to be a more positive potty role model today and there are those who are much, much worse off in the potty role model department and the child rearing department. And let's start here in St. Louis.

VOICE: Category, parent of the year. Nominee, this dope.

GLENN: Police don't want to know why a 3-year-old boy was left alone in a suburban St. Louis shopping mall over the weekend. Where did I put my child? Gosh, I know I left him some place. Wish I had a little beeper on him so like, I could push the remote control and then the child, beep, beep, beep, that I could find him... oh, I left him under the couch. But I would always be losing the child remote control. You know the drill.

Monday the child's mother was still refusing to show up and talk with police. The boy was discovered by employees around 8:30 at the NASCAR speed park in St. Louis Mills mall in Hazelwood, not long before the mall was supposed to close. The boy's name apparently is Cortez. The officers determined that he was 3. His complete identity was unknown until 21 hours later. Police circulated his picture to the media. His aunt called authorities about 6:00 on Sunday. The aunt verified that she, the boy's mother and a group of children had been at the mall.

The aunt? Nobody counted how many -- I mean, how many kids were at the mall? You know, usually one of us will say, do we have everybody? And then we count. And especially with 3-year-olds. And I'm pretty sure that we would recognize that Raphe was missing for a full day, but is it me going out on a limb? I don't know. I'm just like that. You know, I'm just -- you know. "Soon after that the mother identified as 28-year-old Shameka Taylor phoned police." (Phone ringing). "Police." "Yeah, let's just say that the mom of that 3-year-old, let's call him Cortez, would call you up." "Uh-huh." "Would they be arrested?" "This doesn't happen to be the mom of Cortez, does it?" "No, I just -- this is a hypothetical question. I just -- you know." The officers told her they just had some questions for her. She still hasn't shown up.

You know what the police should get? I don't know if you've ever heard of this. Caller ID? If they could get something -- and I don't know if it's available in St. Louis. If the police could get caller ID, they would probably be able to find her, you know? Or star 69, you know? "No, I don't know what you're talking about." (Phone ringing). "Hello?" "Yeah, it's the police. We have some more questions for you." "I'm sorry. I'm not at home. Leave a message at the tone. Boop."

Okay. This isn't working. I mean, we just had the conversation with you.

VOICE: Category, parent of the year. Nominee, this guy (applause).

GLENN: By the way, police are saying it was just bad judgment on the mom's part. They believe it was accidental in the beginning but then there comes a time -- I'm quoting. But then there comes a time when you realize the boy's not there and you should do something about it. So --.

This is a lifetime achievement award. We don't hand these out just higgledy-piggledy. This one is -- I mean, it takes a truly monstrous parent to be able to do what this parent did. He apparently attached alligator clips to the ears of his sleeping wife and children and then zapped them with electricity. He also used to use a hammer to hit his 6-year-old daughter in the head and then he wasn't in a rage but he was really, he was miffed. He was really, really miffed at his family and he got the alligator clips out and electrocuted his family. So....

By the way, we gave him a lifetime achievement award because this happened in 1970 and he's still missing. They are still looking for him. So if you know a guy who, you know, you might suspect killed his whole family with alligator clips and an electrical cord, you might want to call police. (Phone ringing). "Hello, police." "Let's just say that I electrocuted my whole family with alligator clips. Would I be arrested?"

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."
