The most historic meeting between two adversaries since the fall of the Soviet Union just happened in Singapore. If you were following the news coverage late last night, you were witnessing history. President Trump and Kim Jong Un have now left Singapore after a meeting that has been anticipated for 65 years.

First… the bad. It absolutely turned my stomach to see the North Korean flag standing side by side with Old Glory. One flag stands for liberty, peace and opportunity, while the other embodies slavery, hostility and a cultish following. From all the pomp and circumstance yesterday and the handshakes and photographs of roundtable discussions, if you were worried that a cult leader, mass murdering communist dictator would gain legitimacy… you saw your worries materialize. That's exactly what happened. If this had been President Obama, everyone on the right would be destroying him over this. Can we concede that much? John Kerry, Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes… we'd all be calling for their heads on a platter.

And I think it's important to look at this from that optic so that the current administration doesn't fall for the same mistakes that Obama did. We were right to criticize the Iran deal. The inspections were weak - they didn't include military facilities - the deal had a sunset clause, we gave them hundreds of millions of dollars in cash delivered in pallets on an Iranian tarmac, we didn't curb their ballistic missile program… I could go on and on. The deal was a disaster, but above all we assumed that Iran would pursue our interests. We thought we just scored an ally to fight ISIS. Now flash forward a few years and Iran has taken all those freshly unlocked billions and used it to sweep the entire Middle East. The deal between President Trump and Kim Jong Un can looking NOTHING like that.

In short, the Korean war was a diplomatic accident. It should have never happened. It's high time we ended it.

But now… the good. In 1950 Secretary of State Dean Acheson gave a speech to the National Press Club outlining the US defense perimeter following WW2. But during that speech, he mistakenly left off one key country: South Korea. Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong Un's grandfather, had been BEGGING Stalin to let him invade the South, but the Soviets were holding him in check. They didn't want to provoke a US response, but Acheson's speech provided an opening. It was immediately translated and rushed to Stalin's desk. Stalin called emergency meetings with both Mao and Kim. The attack order was given, and the rest is tragic history. Nearly forty thousand Americans would die in the next three years.

In short, the Korean war was a diplomatic accident. It should have never happened. It's high time we ended it. The President appears to have scored a huge opportunity here. Formally end the Korean war and denuclearize the North, but keep the legitimizing and complimenting of a mass murdering communist dictator of a slave state out of these discussions. This is his shot at making a good deal. Don't let us down.

UPDATE: Here's how the conversation went on radio. Watch the video below.

President Trump and Kim Jong Un meet in Singapore

Glenn discusses the most historic meeting between two adversaries since the fall of the Soviet Union.

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."
