The left has lost more than they gained in the midterms. Here's why.

It was the most expensive midterm election in modern history. Record amounts of cash poured in. From the very next day after the 2016 election, the left was out marching and hashtag resisting. They designed ridiculous-looking hats and even weaponized high school kids, plastering them all over cable news. And then later — because why not? — leading a march of their own on Washington, D.C. The Blue Wave was coming!

Aaaaand... then last night happened.

The Blue Wave ended up being a Blue... ripple. Yes, Democrats now control the House, but they actually lost seats in the Senate.

Is one step forward but one step backward what the left was hoping for? Is picking up around 20 seats in the House a Blue Wave? In the 2010 midterm elections, the GOP picked up 63 seats when they took over the House. That was a wave.

So what does all this mean? Well, for me, the biggest lesson from all this is not what Democrats have gained — the House — but rather what they've lost. The perceived narrative was that anyone who didn't agree with the left was instantly and permanently branded a fascist, a bigot, a racist and even a nazi.

If a Blue Wave would have actually happened, it would have justified their accusations — at least in their eyes. But half the country wasn't fazed by this. They stood their ground and boldly declared, "WE WON'T BE COWERED BY THAT! YOU CAN'T SCARE US WITH THIS ANY MORE!"

The media's headlines today highlight America's division, but I actually saw unity.

The media's headlines today highlight America's division, but I actually saw unity. And not only among the right-leaning voters, but also among the right-leaning media. Last night, something happened that I've been hoping to see since I started this little project... my company. I've been looking for those of us outside traditional media to stand together.

During our election coverage we had collaboration with CRTV, the Daily Wire, and the Daily Caller... it was amazing. We all shared content together.

So the left won the House, but they might just have lost their biggest tool — their ability to use shame, guilt and fear as a weapon. Democrats, you have the House. Why don't you use it to show us what you really stand for? Will it just be to launch petty investigations to continue whining about what you lost back in 2016, or will you actually try and get something done?

I mean, you got killed in the Senate, so you won't get anything done anyway — but still — show us if there's more substance to you than name-calling and division.

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."
