Another border agent railroaded by government?

Glenn interviewed the wife of now convicted border agent Jesus Diaz about the case that seems to bear resemblance to the Compean & Ramos ordeal. What'd Diaz do? He 'roughed up' a suspected drug runner who was caught with other illegals bringing 150 pounds of marijuana across the border from Mexico into the US. He claims his innocence and the suspect has no visible marks from the so-called 'rough handcuffing'. Even if he did - who cares?

"As The Blaze reported yesterday, our border patrols are in trouble again.  Jesus Diaz was sentenced to two years in prison for allegedly roughing up a suspect drug runner who was caught with other illegals bringing 150 pounds of marijuana across the border from Mexico into the U.S.  Joe Pags has spoken in great detail on this and spoken with his wife about the sentence.  Diaz contends that he did nothing wrong.  We wanted to get his wife Diana on the phone with us now and find out the whole story from her," Glenn explained.

"Diana, I'm sorry for what this government is doing to you and your family and your husband.  It's been done before, and I fear it will be done again.  Tell me your husband's story."

"My husband's story is unfortunately very common to Ramos and Compean, to Gary Brugman, Gilmer Hernandez.  It was your typical, I guess border patrol agent working the field, comes up on a group of undocumented aliens carrying narcotics.  To make a long story short, my husband comes on the scene, the illegal is on the ground on his stomach handcuffed behind his back.  He goes to pick him up.  He picks him up, he feels that the alien tensed up like he's going to run.  He lifts the cuffs and puts him back down on his stomach.  And from there it kind of just went downhill.  The agents that were in the area were all trainees.  So some of them felt that my husband was too rough with the illegal and that's pretty much it.  There was no ‑‑ he didn't hit him, he didn't kick him, he never went to the hospital, the guy didn't have any cuts or bruises.  He had nothing on him.  It was just the fact that he picked up the handcuffs to push him forward to put him back down on the ground," she explained.

"(The smuggler) had pain in his shoulders because he had strap marks where he was carrying marijuana, and you're talking, I mean, he weighed maybe about 100 pounds.  So he was carrying 60 to 65 pounds and you're that small, yeah, it's going to hurt," she added.

She added that the complaint escalated when the Mexican government insisted the border agent be prosecuted.

Meanwhile, the smuggler was released that night for being a juvenile and was released with the Mexican consulate. The smuggler was also granted full immunity to come back to the United States and testify against Diaz.

"The Internal Affairs and the Mexican consulate together found the illegal alien and they offered him immunity on everything.  The illegal entry, the drugs.  He was never charged with anything.  So if today he applies for a visa, if he's not here already, then he can get one, with no criminal record.  Yet my husband, when he gets out, he can't even get a job," Diaz explained.

The family and the agent are also getting no support from the local government or Texas governor Rick Perry.

"Mr. Rick Perry is doing nothing.  I wrote to Mr. Rick Perry earlier before even the bond hearing and I got a ‑‑ I wasn't even good enough to get a letter in the mail.  I got a PDF.  And he said that it was a federal issue and as a governor he couldn't do anything.  That's all I got from Mr. Perry," she added.

"I think it's just politics.  My husband is a scapegoat.  For some reason they felt that, you know, they could give one to Mexico, I guess, give a scout for unknown reasons," she said.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
