Let's all stop and listen to the advice of the former stripper turned rapper

Twitter stopped convulsing long enough yesterday to adjust their Trump Outrage from hamburgers to former-strippers. Yes, with the help of a news media desperate to outwit President Trump, the outrage machine tossed their fury about Trump serving McDonald's at the White House. Within minutes, that space was filled by the incoherent ramblings of a woman whose claim to fame is that she raps shallow, outlandish things and rarely wears actual clothing. If you just woke up from a coma, none of that will make any sense to you, but I'm afraid this is the world you've returned to. I'll explain more here in a minute.

If you turned on the news yesterday, you probably saw the same three or four stories on repeat. The government shutdown, of course. Something about the Mueller probe, of course. But you were also treated to scathing political opinions of a cultural bigwig. Was it Noam Chomsky? The Pope?

RELATED: Kanye is right

Nope. Think lower down the pyramid of insightfulness and merit.

Beto O'Rourke?

Lower.

A convict?

Still lower, actually.

Hillary Clinton?

You're moving in the right direction, but, if you can believe it, still lower.

Cardi B, the former-stripper-turned-mostly-unintelligible rapper who has taken the throne as the Queen of Rap, a position which actually has really high turnover rate. Her music brings joy to many people. That's wonderful. Why should we stop everything to hear what she has to say about politics?

Why was Cardi B front and center on CNN and MSNBC? How did her 4th-grade-reading-level rant send Twitter into a tailspin? Why do we need to know her opinion on the government shutdown?

If you want to see a rapper with courage, look to the astonishingly unpredictable Kanye West.

For some reason, our televisions swarmed with the rude, sassy, finger-snapping routine of a highly-privileged rapper. Instantly, it became clear that she clearly spent more time jamming bright-green eye shadow into her face than she did actually thinking about the validity of her words. The political equivalent of a broken toilet plunger expressed a widely-held Liberal opinion of President Trump (She was so passionate though!), and even took it a step further—as the Left seems fond of doing lately—and called half of the country racist or ignorant or something. And everything I just said is way more articulate and coherent than anything that Cardi B has or will ever say.

Most of all, her rant was nothing close to the courageous battle that MSM and Twitter have portrayed. If you want to see a rapper with courage, look to the astonishingly unpredictable Kanye West. Say what you want about the guy, it takes a lot of guts for him to put on the Trump hat. That's courage. That's conviction. Although, I have to say, I'd rather get my political opinions from people who actually know what they're saying.

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."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
