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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
