We must learn from the Great Depression and if we don't turn things around soon, there may not be a "return to normal" that we all crave. The economy is suffering. American workers are suffering. And small businesses are getting the short end stimulus. Relief websites are crashing, bankers can't access the systems needed to help, and April's government payouts will be gone by the time May rent is due. Small business owners can't pay their mortgage, and their low wage workers receiving unemployment benefits might not have an incentive to return to work when possible. Food prices are going up as factories experience production and distribution delays. It's all a mess, and President Trump must do everything he can to connect with Americans to encourage them back to work so we can salvage what American production we have left.
The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.
With Texas' recent elimination of state-mandated COVID regulations, Major League Baseball was back full swing in the Lone Star State; the Texas Rangers just held the first full-capacity sporting event since the start of the pandemic. In this clip, Stu details the non-strict 'mask police' that were at the game, and Pat makes an interesting prediction: could mask regulations for vaccinated Americans actually be phased out by Memorial Day?
Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?
On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.
"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.
"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
