Who's right? The cops or the woman videotaping?

The radio crew played a clip on radio this morning showing a woman being arrested while she was taping police officers doing a traffic stop. Were they abusing their power or were the officers within their rights?

Watch the clip below to see what Glenn saw before giving his reaction:

According to The Blaze, “It should be noted that the officer does cite some things that the woman allegedly said before she started recording as part of the reason he felt unsafe. In his words, the woman seemed ‘very anti-police.’”

The Blaze also notes that she has a history of conflict with police and was previously arrested trying to block a home from foreclosure.

The guys were torn on whether or not the police officer was right to arrest her. While Stu felt that he was justified as police officers need to be able to control the situation around the, Pat felt that the woman was being reasonable and didn’t seem to be presenting a danger.

“ First of all, it's pitch black at night. You can't see what she's doing. At any point she could be a threat. She's standing five feet away from an ongoing police action,” Stu countered.

Glenn said that this should be judged by someone who has all the facts, but its clearly not illegal to videotape police officers.

Glenn even brought in Joe, his right hand and counsel, for his input.

“ Joe, do the police have a right to tell you, you cannot videotape on your own property?” Glenn asked.

“Yes and no. I mean, they afford the law protects them to make judgments for themselves and if the police officers feel that the situation is becoming unsafe because someone is videotaping them, they have the right to say stop,” Joe said.

“I will never second guess a police officer when they feel unsafe. I don't second guess them when they've discharged their weapons. I let it go through the system. You're not the one standing there in danger. You're not the one who has to put a Kevlar vest on every day,” Glenn said.

“With that being said, the first thing you say to protect yourself in a legal world today correct me if I'm wrong, counselor is I feel unsafe. I feel threatened here. You say that immediately because if it's being if it's on tape, you automatically get a whole new range of leeway, correct?”

“You're exactly right and so when the police officers comes out and says, look, I feel threatened or I feel unsafe, he's basically triggering his range of options now. So he's elevated it from this threat level to this level and he has more leeway then to act,” Joe explained.

“And just to be fair here, she's doing the same thing. She keeps saying over and over again about, she keeps stating her rights over and over again, she keeps saying I'm on my own property. It doesn't appear that she is at the beginning. She knows all of her rights as a protestor. She knows all of her rights as you know, I'm adding this context because I think it's important. This is from the MSNBC story: I Team 10 has learned she's no stranger to police. She was arrested in March with a group of others who tried to block a home on Ravenwood avenue from foreclosure. She's seemingly a professional protestor,” Stu said.

Glenn said that while he always would side with a police officer, he does have concerns about this type of action leading to a slippery slope.

“Although I will say this, you know. Apart from the slippery slope that this seems to be, I'd be pissed off if a cop is telling me to get off my own lawn and telling me to go in my house,” Pat said.

“Now let's add six months or a year to the timeline of pensions and unions and civil unrest. And let's now see exactly what we're brewing here. We've got to be very clear on what rights you have. I am a huge supporter of the police. I will stand with my local police every step of the way, as long as they stand with the Constitution. And I they have. I have no problem with any of the activity that has happened so far, but the star field is rolling the other way,” Glenn said.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
