Glenn's getting a hybrid?


Is Glenn really thinking about giving up his super stretched Escalade and buying a hybrid?

GLENN:  It's the humane thing to do, drill right through his head to get the oil.  I mean, we had John McCain on Friday and he was like, I can't -- I would just as soon drill in the Grand Canyon as in the ANWR.  Really?  Do we have oil in the Grand Canyon?  Because I'm with you on that.  Oh, you were being sarcastic.  I'm not.  I mean, people just don't understand we can't live without oil.  Maybe we can in 50 years.  Maybe we can in 20 years.  Maybe we can in 10 but that's like me saying, Oh, you know what?  I'm not going to buy a new car.  My car breaks down.  It's on its last legs.  There's no way I'm going to make it home and every mechanic has said, boy, you're in real trouble, you don't replace this car.  Don't worry about it.  I'm going to poop out a hybrid around 2:00 this afternoon.  "You're going to what?"  "Yeah, I think I ate enough fiber and everything, I think I can poop out some sort of a hybrid today that I'm going to take home."  "Okay.  Well, until you actually do that, you might want to go to the GM dealer and get yourself another car."  "No, no, I'm going to just keep on working on pooping out this hybrid."  That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard!  When you actually poop it out and we drive it around for a while, we know that it works, that's great.  Until that time, we should probably go to the automakers and get one.  What do you say?  Who's with me on that one?  Oh, yeah, I'm just going to -- you know what we're going to do, alternative energy.  Mmm-hmmm.  When we have it, you let me know.  But everything we ever come up with, with alternative energy:  "Oh, no, but not that one.  That one's bad.  That one's bad."  Okay, I'm down to a campfire.  "But you have smoke in the air and you're burning the forest."  It's a campfire!  I don't have anything left!  "Yeah, mmm-hmmm, I know, but we're going to work on some alternative energy."  Oh, these people drive me crazy.

By the way, you know I'm doing this -- these commercials for GM and this is not a commercial.  I do these commercials for GM and every couple of weeks they give me another vehicle to drive, et cetera, et cetera.  I drove their Tahoe hybrid for the last three or four days.  That thing is fantastic.  I just bought a Denali and a Escalade.  I have two GM cars not because -- I never got a special deal or anything else.  I buy them from a friend of mine down in Florida and love them.  Love them both.  I am ready to sell both of them.  They're less than a year old each.  This Tahoe, it's a hybrid, gets 8 miles more per gallon, gets 22 miles per gallon.  It's fantastic.  It's electric V-8/V-4.  The thing has -- what are you looking at me like that, Stu?

STU:  So it runs as a V-4, a V-8 and a hybrid separately?

GLENN:  Yeah, at some point it runs as a -- it's wild to drive.  At some point it is an electric, at some point it's just a V-4 and then when you need it, it's a V-8.  The thing has guts to it.  I mean, I hate to -- I hate to discredit government mandates, you know, and all those people who are forcing us to, you know, "Well, you've got to..." I hate to discredit that by saying, hey, here's a vehicle that I actually like, works really well.  I like it more than the Escalade and the Denali and it's great on fuel economy.  That's great.

STU:  So when did you get the letter from the Government that you had to buy it?

GLENN:  I didn't.  I didn't, uh-huh.

STU:  No, but how else would you understand to buy a product?

GLENN:  I don't, I know.  And you know the thing I really like about it?  I don't know if it's just because this is a test, this is a loaner thing that the, you know, Detroit sends this out to me with like this -- I don't know.  Have you ever seen them with the big hybrid sticker on them?  The Denali is made -- I mean, the Tahoe and the Yukon I think are the same thing hybrid but I'm having -- right now I'm driving the Tahoe.

STU:  But have you seen them with the big huge hybrid on the side?  Beck)

STU:  Says hybrid in big letters?

GLENN:  It's got to be, what is that, six inches?  Got to be six inches all across the said, says hybrid and then across the back window it says hybrid.  You've never driven in New York City in an SUV until you've had somebody pound on a -- "You don't need..."  I'm not kidding you, pound on your hood, "You don't need a car this big."  I rolled down the windows.  "Yes, I do.  I've got dead bodies of liberals in the back.  I need them as big as they come.  Want to see it?"  Until you've driven, you know, and people are pounding on your hoods, you know, I'll just take the pavement -- I'm thinking about just putting hybrid on the side of the car.

STU:  That was the goal of our stickers, the hybrid -- what was it, hydro?

GLENN:  Hydrocarbon.

STU:  Hydrocarbon powered eco vehicle?

GLENN:  Hydrocarbon powered eco vehicle.  It's fantastic, absolutely fantastic.  But anyway, it's the new hybrid from GM, not a commercial.

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."
