Glenn Beck: Easter meaning

GLENN: On Good Friday just want to spend a few minutes with you just talking about the meaning of Good Friday. Doesn't matter if you're a Christian or not. The meaning is universal truth and I guess I started it with pain that you've got to have the pain. You have to go through the pain and it's what you do with the pain. You've got to have the pain and then stop and recognize it, and everybody always asks me on Friday, on Good Friday why that piece that we played at the beginning of the hour ends at the crucifixion and the death. Well, because the resurrection comes later. Focus on the pain for a minute and recognize the pain. And then I took you to the story about Virl Osmond, the pain of somebody that can't hear. He and his brother couldn't hear, but it's what they did with the pain. Instead of focusing just on the pain, instead of taking that pain, they recognized it. I'm sure that family cried themselves to sleep 100 nights if not 1,000 nights over that. But instead they turned it around and used it as propellant for something good. They recognized it, they walked through it and turned it into something positive.


 I can't get into detail because it's personal in my family, but this has been one of the hardest years for me. This has been a very difficult year for me and my family and many nights in the last two months have not ended until 2:00 in the morning with my family around the kitchen table. And just this week one of my children said something, as all teenagers do, that was hurtful and I said, you know what, this stops, this stops and this stops right here until you figure out what to do with what just happened.


 Well, it took her a few days but she came to me and in about 20 minutes she hemmed and hawed and I didn't say a word. I just let her talk. And she did everything but say "I'm sorry," but I knew she wanted to and I knew if I just shut up long enough, she would say it, and she did. Took 20 minutes. She finally stopped and she said, "I'm really sorry, Dad." I got up and hugged her and she immediately burst out into tears. And what was so shocking to me was her response. As she was crying, she said, "It can't be this easy." I said, "Honey, you've made it so hard. It hasn't been easy, but it is this easy." In all of life, all it requires is recognizing the problem, recognizing the pain, recognizing the frustration, working through it. And as you make mistakes along the way just stopping and honestly saying, "I'm sorry." And that's really what Easter is all about, much more important than Christmas. That's about the birth. But if it didn't happen, what happened this weekend, if that didn't happen, the birth would just be another baby. It's about the death and about the resurrection and about what that means, and what that means is, oh, my gosh, it's so easy. We make it so tough. We make it so hard. We wallow in our pain or we ignore our pain when all we have to really do is just sincerely say, "I'm sorry," really mean it and it all goes away.

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
