Head of World Health Organization Pulls Out All The Stops...But Fails to Name COVID-19 A Pandemic
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus ✔@DrTedros · 17hReplying to @DrTedros Leadership from the top: We call on country leaders to mobilize their plans, coordinating every part of the government, not just the health ministry – security, diplomacy, finance, commerce, transport, trade, information and more – the whole government should be involved. #COVID19
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus ✔@DrTedros We're concerned that in some countries the level of political commitment & the actions that demonstrate that commitment don't match the level of the threat we all face. This is
NOT a drill
NOT the time to give up
NOT a time for excuses
NOT the flu
This is a time for pulling out all the stops

Who Is the Real Jesus? | Dallas Jenkins | Ep 103

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. Glenn and Dallas break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is and paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.


Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

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.

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.
