Memo to Susan Collins: Susan Rice wants your job

When Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp voted "no" on ending the Kavanaugh confirmation debate in the Senate last week, she was praised for "voting her conscience," even though she's not expected to win reelection in North Dakota. Yet, Republican Senator Susan Collins was not praised for voting her conscience because she voted for Kavanaugh. The Left apparently thinks Collins' conscience is less virtuous than Heitkamp's.

Now, Senator Collins may have to deal with more political fallout than any of her Republican senate colleagues. Already, another female is floating the idea of challenging Collins for her Maine Senate seat in 2020 – former President Obama's national security adviser, Susan Rice.

On Sunday, Rice said she'll wait until after the midterm elections to decide whether to run for Collins' senate seat. Rice says Collins, "has betrayed women across this country" with her "yes" vote on Kavanaugh.

Rice says she is thinking about running because of her frustration that Collins "could in a very political fashion not just decide to vote for Kavanaugh but do it in a fashion that was quite dismissive of the concerns of many Americans and many Mainers."

You may be able to accuse Senator Collins of many things, but being "dismissive" of concerns about Kavanaugh is not one of them. Rice obviously didn't listen to Collins' 44-minute speech on Friday in which she thoroughly explained her decision.

Of course, there is one small snag for Susan Rice – the fact that she isn't really from Maine and doesn't live there now.

Of course, there is one small snag for Susan Rice – the fact that she isn't really from Maine and doesn't live there now. But she assured an audience in New York on Sunday that her ties to Maine "are long and deep." As in, she visited her grandparents there every year when she was growing up. And she owns property in Maine. In other words, she's totally qualified.

Rice's other major qualification is that she works for Netflix. Earlier this year, she was named to the Netflix board of directors, which makes perfect sense, because Rice is a video expert. Her main expertise is obscure YouTube videos that have been known to provoke groups of people, even groups of terrorists, to do completely random things out of innocent anger brought on by the YouTube video. You know, things like attacking consulates and killing Americans in places like Benghazi, Libya.

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."
