White House closing border patrol stations in four states

Glenn took some time this morning to talk about disturbing news from the U.S./Mexico border: the White House plans to shut down several Border Patrol stations in four different states. With violence on the border on the rise, Glenn saw this as a huge mistake.

Fox News reported:

The Obama administration is moving to shut down nine Border Patrol stations across four states, triggering a backlash from local law enforcement, members of Congress and Border Patrol agents themselves.

Critics of the move warn the closures will undercut efforts to intercept drug and human traffickers in well-traveled corridors north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Though the affected stations are scattered throughout northern and central Texas, and three other states, the coverage areas still see plenty of illegal immigrant activity -- one soon-to-be-shuttered station in Amarillo, Texas, is right in the middle of the I-40 corridor; another in Riverside, Calif., is outside Los Angeles.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it's closing the stations in order to reassign agents to high-priority areas closer to the border.

In response to the news, Glenn pulled out his new book Cowards which has a whole section dedicated to the violence on the border.

Glenn focused specifically on "spillover violence" (p.113), and how people cannot agree on how much violence is actually happening because it is a battle between statistics and anecdotal evidence. Glenn pointed out that there isn't even a universal definition for spillover violence, and the one used by Homeland Security ignores any crimes in the U.S. that fall under the category of trafficker-on-trafficker violence. This means criminal on criminal border crime is ignored. Glenn used the example that if one cartel member beheads another cartel member in Seattle, they won't count that as spillover crime from the border.

"Napolitano has manipulated statistics to say that the overall crime is down 30% at the border. That's only true if you look at big city border," Glenn said. "Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security are cowards because they hide behind the dire numbers instead of acknowledging how dire the numbers are."

Glenn cautioned that he was not anti-immigration, but that he was only anti-illegal immigration.

"Einstein was an immigrant. It's good. It's all good. It's good for them. It's good for us. And that's how we should frame this topic from here on out," Glenn said.

"Yes we want immigrants to legally immigrate. That's our stance," he added. "We are for legal immigration. They make us better. That's the winning target. Stop letting them paint you in a corner. They're a joke. They're over. The left has been exposed. The progressive movement has been exposed."

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.

Bank of America SIDESTEPS the Constitution for Paris Climate Agreement

Bank of America sent out a news release announcing its plans to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions through its financing — meaning it's now putting policies into place that'll make it hard for people to do business if they don't support the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

"It is critical that we leverage all parts of our business – beyond our direct operations – in order to accelerate the transition to a net zero global economy," said Bank of America Vice Chairman, Anne Finucane.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explains how its new policies are an end-run around the U.S. Constitution and another example of the coming "Great Reset." He also exposes Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan's close connections to the World Economic Forum and the push for stakeholder capitalism.

And this is just the beginning.
