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.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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."
