Obama FM

GLENN: You know, I'm beginning to think that just based on the Drudge headline that was earlier today, "Ten in a row," it's ten in a row, Obama, he's like a radio station. He's like a really crappy top 40 radio station that really doesn't -- do you remember those songs -- well, Shannon was one of them. I never knew that was about a dead dog. I had no idea it was about a dead dog. You know, I was like, (humming), no idea. Do you ever listen to the words of songs and you're like, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait a minute, what does that one say? You have no idea? You just like the song? That's Obama. He's one of those songs that you love but then you listen to the lyrics and you're like, uh-oh, that's not good. That's what he is... "Ten in a row."

So I say we start listening to his lyrics. Dan, did you finish the station? Because I think we should build a whole Obama station. Did you finish the sweeper? You know, go ahead. Play it. Here it is.

VOICE: Ten in a row. This is your ten in a row superstation. Superstation, Obama FM. Hi, you're on Obama FM in Atlanta. Hello, Dan. Dan? See, now -- Dan? He's there. He's just -- you know what he's doing? He's listening to the radio. It's like a 12 second delay. Hello?

CALLER: Hello?

GLENN: Yes, Dan, go ahead, caller, you're on.

CALLER: Glenn, I'm trying to talk you down off the ledge here.

GLENN: Can't be done. Can't be done.

CALLER: I mean, come on, Glenn. It's February, for crying out loud, February.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

CALLER: Okay? Barack Obama is not going to carry Texas in the general election. He's just not. And as far as the early voting coming in right now, I heard a couple of callers last week on Rush saying that they were from Texas and that they were going to -- they were Republicans and they were going to cross over and vote for Obama to (inaudible).

GLENN: That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Obama is not the guy to beat. Anybody -- I hope Rush said this -- that anybody who says they're going to cross over and vote for Obama is a moron. The one that is beatable out of the two is Hillary Clinton, for the love of Pete. And even -- you know what? Let me ask you. Which one would you rather vote for as a conservative? Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama? If you answer Barack Obama, you're just on that change of hope. That's all that's happening. You're just, you're on -- I'm on the hope train: That's me. I'm on the hope train. I haven't listened to a word he said. Turn the lyrics up and listen to the lyrics. Do your homework and read a little bit about it. I'm sorry but I -- you know what? Unless this country -- here's the caveat. Unless this country pays attention to what the man's policies are, which, come on. Really. I know you'll pay attention. I'll pay attention. Do you see the dope in the car next to you? Look at them. Look at them right now. Speed up. Look at them. Look at their face. Do you think they're going to pay attention? Right now they're in their car right now just thinking either stupid thoughts or they're in their car and they're just (humming), and they're just belting it out at the top of their lungs because they don't think anybody's looking. Like all of a sudden I'm invisible, in my car. We can see you, dummy. Do you think they're going to pay attention?

If people pay attention to what this man is suggesting, he won't be President of the United States. You can't talk me off of that ledge. I just don't think that one's going to happen.

VOICE: When the lyrics don't seem to have any substance to you, but your kids love it anyway, this is Obama FM. Obama FM.

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?

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.
