Glenn’s son Raphe has a plan for a lightning gun

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

So on radio this morning Glenn told a story from his trip to New York that ended with his son Raphe in the bathroom talking about building a lightning gun that he would sell back to the United States in a get-rich-quick scheme. Seriously. Apparently, Glenn was letting his eight year old in on some upcoming projects, and those stories inspired Raphe to explain in detail his plans to create a gun that would create and fire projectile lightning bolts. During a bathroom break, Raphe told his brother-in-law that he and his dad would sell the lightning gun to Barack Obama for (drumroll)…$8,000!!! The young Mr. Beck claimed they would be set for life! When pressed for details on how the whole lightning gun thing would actually work, Raphe only responded: “Dad knows how to do it.” Upon exiting the bathroom, concerned fellow diners asked Raphe who his dad was and what he did for a living, and were apparently relieved to find out that he was only a radio and television host, not a reclusive mad scientist working in a dark cabin somewhere on a doomsday father/son project.

Don’t miss Raphe’s big debut on the Christmas Special this Thursday at 8pm ET. DETAILS

    Cute one Glenn, nice story. 

    Given the viciousness of your enemies in the media and otherwise, I wonder if any of them who listen to your show will try to twist this into a “Glenn Beck: mad scientist and international arms dealer” moment.

    Raphe’s plan to build a lightning gun would create more jobs than this current administration. :-)

    I have been on nuke subs, and have had some former shipmates chased by plazma balls from electrical cabinets due to a short. The plans would coincide with a railgun type of system.

    This has already been built.  Sorry Raphe.  Just check Popular Mechanics from a few months ago.

    Spiritual souls formed in the image of God are inhabiting fleshly bodies here on Planet Earth. The DNA/genes of humankind have been contaminated by the “sins” of ancestors, and each person alive today was birthed imperfectly. Therefore, we all have a propensity to rebel against natural/universal “laws” until we are made “aware” of “truth” and what we must do to “redeem” ourselves. Reconciliation with the Master of Life, Lord Jesus Christ, can only be done when we become mentally capable of using “faith” and “freewill” to seek “forgiveness” for our “transgressions” – hereditary or conscious choices – through submissive, humble “repentance” before Almighty God. The “One” omnipotent “Creator” of all things is a “Spirit” who has revealed Himself to everyone with “hearts” to recognize His reality. All other “gods” are cheap imitations and substitutes which must be rejected. There is only “one way” to peace, joy, contentment and eternal life; Jesus Christ is the “way” for each of us who seek to dwell within His magnificent Kingdom. It is our duty as children of God to overcome evil by separating ourselves from things of this world. Although persecution and death might be required of us as we disengage from corrupt systems, we should never compromise with enemies of God. We should strive to “see no evil, hear no evil or speak no evil” while moving forward to cleanse ourselves from corrupting influences. Take no thought for things of this world, but focus upon the Beauty of purity found only in the Spiritual Domain of Jehovah God.
