The midterms proved at least one thing, voters couldn't care less about celebrity endorsements

The great, wonderful Beyoncé wants you to know that she can be whatever she wants, whenever she wants. Sure, she's a musician—and, if you count 22 Grammys and 63 Grammy nominations, it's fair to say that she is considered good—although, who's to say how much she actually writes or performs, besides singing and occasionally rapping. But Beyoncé wants you to know that she is so much more.

Beyoncé can also be an academic. No Ph.D. or prior research needed. If she wants to be an academic—voila!—it is done. A few years ago—around the time that she appeared on an award show in gilded lingerie in front of a sign that said FEMINIST—Beyonce wrote an academic paper titled "Gender Equality is a Myth!" (Yes, she included an exclamation point! Gasp!) Note that Beyoncé happens to be one of the most privileged people on the face of the earth. Which brings me to my point.

One of the many roles that Beyoncé has awarded herself is political activist. She prances around the world spouting off nonsense like she's a professor of political science or a longtime politician. And, believe me, her opinions matter more than yours—to her, at least, all of which is part of the reason a recent poll determined Beyoncé the "Most Divisive Celebrity in the Country."

Actors and musicians have always done this weird thing where they interpret their fame to be a malleable, god-like expertise. Because people, in their minds, worship them for their abilities as an actor or musician they assume that they possess unlimited knowledge and that their opinions matter more than anyone else's. We are all quite familiar with it.

Leading up to the midterms, Comedy Central poked fun at this:


#ShouldWeVote? youtu.be


The justice, now, is that people have come to see through the cloud of smugness coming from celebrities. This week's elections proved that people are no longer swayed by celebrities' endorsements. Taylor Swift's fawning over Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen wasn't enough to win him the spot. The same thing happened to candidates endorsed by Dave Chappelle, Oprah Winfrey, Will Ferrell, Rhianna, Puff Daddy, and the scores of Hollywood elite who championed Beto—yeah, it was a bit odd that so many Hollywood actors were fawning over a candidate in a Texas election.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News:

Last night, the American voters–once again—told Hollywood that they simply don't care what they think. All across the country, Hollywood darlings were rejected by the voters.

It's almost as if being a celebrity doesn't automatically instill you with the secrets of existence. I doubt the message will get through to celebrities, though. I'm sure you noticed: They tend to be a bit lacking in self-awareness and humility.

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."
