Israel's Deputy Speaker of the Knesset calls into radio

On the radio show this morning, Glenn spoke with Danny Danon, Deputy Speaker for the Knesset in Israel, about a wide range of topics including Iran's nuclear program, the Obama administration, and his new book Israel: The Will to Prevail.

Read the transcript of the interview below:

GLENN: Danny Danon, he is the deputy speaker of the Knesset and author of a brand‑new book that everybody should read called Israel: The Will to Prevail. The biggest problem we have in America is our will, do we have the will to do what we have to do to be able to survive and then thrive. The same question is being asked of Israel, and I will tell you, knowing the Israeli people, well, with the exception of a lot of people in Tel Aviv, knowing a lot of the Israelis, there is a will to survive, and they will.

Danny Danon is here with us now. Hi, Danny, how are you, sir?

DANON: Hi, Glenn, it's a pleasure to be on your show.

GLENN: Tell me the situation. Here we sit on September 11th, the eleventh anniversary. You probably have noticed but are probably polite enough not to point out that people in America are just kind of back to normal and we're not ‑‑ it's not like when you have a very important date in Israel where the city and the population stops to reflect. We've forgotten and now we're really not taking this threat from Iran seriously at all anymore.

DANON: Glenn, it is amazing. I meet a lot of people who tell me why should we bother about Israel? Why should we bother about the Middle East? It is not happening in our backyard. That is a mistake because if you ignore what's happening today in Israel, it will come to the shores of the United States of America. It happened eleven years ago and it will happen again. We are being attacked not because we conquered the land or we occupy the settlement. We are being attacked because of the values, because we are different. And just listen to their opinion. They say we will go after the Saturday people, the Jews, but they will go after the Sunday people, the Christians in the United States. So I think you better wake up because I think in Israel we woke up already, but over here, as you said, people are ignoring the reality.

GLENN: So why do you suppose it is? And people in your own country and Jews here in America shock me because they're different than Israelis. They don't take this, the threat, seriously about Iran, and most Americans don't. Why, why do you suppose that is?

DANON: I think that people look at the map and say, "Wow, it is so far away, why should I bother." But today with the globalization. Also the terrorists use technology. And you look at the connection and the deep relationship between Venezuela and Iran and Hezbollah. And you know, Glenn, what they have in common, all of them? And I'm writing a book about the weekly flies that fly every week from Iran to Venezuela in order to transfer (inaudible). They have in common the hatred to the USA, the hatred to Israel. And I think that you would continue to do so. So it is not so simple, if you're not somewhere far away, it can be here in South America and it can come to the shores of the United States.

GLENN: You invited me to speak at the Knesset which was one of the bigger honors of my life.

DANON: You have to come again, Glenn. It was amazing.

GLENN: Well, if President Obama wins, I will be there probably by the end of the year. And I might bring my bags with me.

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: But it was a great honor to speak and to stand with you and so many others, but I know you got a lot of heat for that. I'm not as popular over there even as I am here.

DANON: Well, I think that the majority support you and support people like you who stand with Israel, pray for Israel, but sometimes few elements in the media, especially the liberal part of media, do not like to fear support to Israel. They like to put fear in the heart of the Israelis telling us, "If you will not make a confession today, if you will not divide Jerusalem tomorrow, it will be horrible." I remember last year before the UN convention, people from the left told me, "If you will not build up a (inaudible) before September 2011, it will be a point of no return" and look what happened. Nothing happened. So we are not afraid, and I can tell that people love you and I think you should come again, no matter what will be the result in the upcoming elections because we need people like you who stand with Israel. And I know that many people in Israel are not aware between the difference of the White House or Washington to the great America. Some people see that President Obama is not pro Israel or he's not supportive of the Israeli people. I know it is not the case with the majority of the Americans who do support us.

GLENN: That's one thing that I wanted to talk to you about is the fact, I've seen a change in many Americans and Christians per se. They're not ‑‑ they're standing with Israel and the Israelis and the Jewish people not because they want to baptize or anything else. I mean, don't get me wrong. There are people that, you know, are like, "Hey, you'll come to Jesus." But mainly I am seeing people who are standing there because they know it's right. And there is a chance that at least in this country, there are millions of people that recognize the point in history that we're at and will stand with you. It has to be extraordinarily frustrating to see, do you ‑‑ let me ask you this way: Do you think it was a mistake or an oversight that President Obama and the Democratic National Committee left Jerusalem out and said, "Hey, we don't ‑‑ we can't really find the capital of Israel. We're not really sure where it is"?

DANON: Definitely it was an embarrassing moment for everybody and we felt awkward watching it at the center. And I have been to conventions but I haven't seen such a miserable act regarding Jerusalem and God. But I have to tell you what. I have many friends about Democrats, congressmen, senators. I think the main issue is the policy of President Obama. And you don't need to look at the platform. Look at the policy in the last three and a half years. He told us do not build in Jerusalem. Can you believe somebody who tell in the U.S. to Hispanics or to African‑Americans you are not allowed to build in this city or in this state? It is unbelievable. But President Obama said it very clearly: Jews should not build in certain parts of Jerusalem, the only capital. So no matter what will be the decision in any convention, Jerusalem will be the capital of the Jewish people. And I do feel that we ‑‑ it is so important for you to speak up because you support us, and people like yourself unconditionally. You don't tell. You ask. You will support Israel but you have to do 1, 2, and 3, or you have to divide the land. You support us no conditions and that is true love.

GLENN: Well, I mean, it's your business. It's your country, it's your business. I support you and your right to defend yourself. That doesn't mean I'm going to say, "Hey, we've all got to get troops on the ground," you know, because we are ‑‑ we've spent ourself into oblivion and we've spread ourselves so thin that, you know, we just can't be all over the world like we were. But I completely support your right to stand up for yourself.

How do you feel ‑‑ or do you have any comments on the United States just sending over a billion dollars now for the new Islamic regime in Egypt to purchase German U‑boats?

DANON: You know, you look at that and you do not believe it. You give billions of U.S. dollars to the UN, Ahmadinejad on a yearly base and now you fund the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. And it's not only money. It's the technology, weapons that eventually will be used against us. So I ask myself, aren't you thinking about what will happen in five years, ten years? The region is so dynamic, so fragile, and I think sometimes we cannot believe what's happening in terms of the mistakes. But sending troops, you know, the U.S. never sent troops to Israel. Only during the Gulf War there were a few patriotic people who operated the aircraft missiles. But never the U.S. had to send troops to Israel. We know how to defend ourselves, but we do need the moral support. We need the moral backing and that's what we expect from President Obama, to give us the moral backing.

GLENN: How do you feel, how do you feel about Mitt Romney's direction? Do you feel that there's support there for Israel?

DANON: I heard Governor Romney in Israel. I think he really means what he said about standing with Israel. And I think President Obama was unique because even in my book I compare President Obama not to President Bush. To President Clinton who was also a Democrat, where President Clinton tried to be a mediator and to mediate between us, Israelis, to the Palestinians. President Obama, he was a dictator. He tried to dictate our (inaudible) on us and he tried to bully our prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House. And that's not the way to achieve real peace. That's not the way to treat your ally.

GLENN: I don't think anybody really bullies Benjamin Netanyahu, at least effectively. Is there any concern about how the American people will react if you guys strike without saying anything, if you guys strike before the election?

DANON: Also, you know, we are following the elections very carefully but the timeline of Iran is different. They don't care about elections, don't care about what will happen here in November, and we are very worried about that. But I think we show that we don't have to get permission from anyone. When we have the nuclear reactor in Iraq in the early Eighties, Israel was condemned by the UN, by the U.S., but eventually it was a good decision. It was for the benefit of the American people. So I think also this time if you will act, serve in the long run, it will be for the benefit of the American people.

GLENN: Danny Danon, he is the deputy speaker of the Knesset and the author of Israel: The Will to Prevail. Danny, we'll see you again and thank you so much. God ‑‑

DANON: We'll see you next year in Jerusalem.

GLENN: You got it. God bless. The capital of Israel, by the way.

'Sanctuary city' Democrats upset over (a few 1000) migrants, meanwhile here's what's happening in border towns

New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) and Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) are in an uproar now over a few thousand illegal immigrants coming to their cities — even though both places claim to be "sanctuary cities" for illegal immigrants. Meanwhile, the number of illegal immigrants coming into border towns is expected to exceed 6 MILLION by the end of Biden's term if things continue at the current rate.

As the Democrats ask the Biden administration to declare a federal emergency, Glenn Beck took a few moments on the radio program to compare their immigration problems to the massive influx of illegal immigrants flooding our border towns.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) has come a long way since she told then-2020 presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke "Hell, no, you’re not" taking her guns in response to O'Rourke's viral "hell yes" comment about proposed firearm confiscation plans.

Now, we find out that Boebert was a stripper and a paid escort, had a "meth drug problem," nearly "killed her sister-in-law during a drunk driving" accident, and somehow had an abortion five or so months before giving birth to her son. Oh, wait, no. Those were all lies, and the guy who peddled them — American Muckrakers PAC co-founder David Wheeler — admitted to CNN that his "bombshell" exposé on Rep. Boebert was chock full of "inaccuracies."

Wheeler also offered to apologize to Boebert, but on "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday, the Republican congresswoman told Glenn that it looks like that was a lie too.

"I don't really mind that they hate me," Boebert said of her left-wing defamers. "It actually lets me know that I'm on the right track, because they cannot stand the truth ... [and] they hate anything that is good about America. So, whenever they come after me, I'm like, 'alright, we're doing good.'"

Asked by Glenn about Wheeler's absolutely outrageous lies, many of which went viral on Twitter last month, Boebert said, "They cannot attack me personally enough ... they've always stretched it too far and now they just completely make it up. They completely fabricate it. There were lies saying [she had] two terminated pregnancies, I was an escort, a stripper, an addict, all sorts of things. And, you know, people get tired of it ... it really discredits anything they're trying to do because it's so out of touch. But that's all right. We'll have my lawyers handle that one."

After CNN called the Democratic super PAC co-founder out on his "inaccuracies," Wheeler "conceded:

[T]he super PAC was wrong when it insisted a photo of another woman posing on a bed is a photo of Boebert, was wrong when it claimed Boebert initially failed to disclose a campaign contribution from Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, was wrong to suggest Cruz had made big contributions to Boebert's campaign immediately after she started running in her first primary, was wrong about the date of a Boebert vehicle accident, and was wrong when it published a claim that Boebert had an abortion "in the fall of 2004'"- at most six months before she gave birth to a son in March 2005.

Wheeler also told CNN that he would be willing to apologize, but according to Boebert, "he doubles down on a daily basis."

"[Wheeler] stands by his claims [and] stands by his anonymous sources," she said. "This is not something that he's backing down from, and frankly, neither am I."

CEO says TWO-THIRDS of ammunition deliveries have gone MISSING with UPS

Patrick Collins, CEO of TheGunFood.com, says he's "lost" thousands of dollars worth of ammunition. Why? Because customers’ orders don’t always seem to make it to their doors — especially when delivering with UPS. In fact, he says out of 18,000 rounds of ammunition shipped through UPS, only a third were actually delivered. That's a lot of ammo to go missing. So, where is it?

Collins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail the issue, the lengths his company has gone to work with the delivery service, and the lack of detailed response or explanation from UPS.

Collins said UPS blames the packaging even though his company has always "met and exceeded" all available packaging protocols.

"I have pictures of how the packages are packed (and) within the packages," he explained. "And I have all of that information. In fact, we changed our protocol here at TheGunFood.com to have our drivers, when they drop off the packages at the centers, they have to actually take a picture of it on the conveyor belt when UPS takes possession of our packages."

Collins also told Glenn his company isn't the only one to have ammunition go missing during delivery. "I know quite a few other folks, that have had well over $300,000 of ammunition gone missing. And it's really changed the way we have to do our business," he said.

"The Glenn Beck Program" reached out to UPS to ask why ammunition and gun sellers might be having these issues, but the shipping company didn't exactly answer the question.

"Dear Glenn Beck Program ... Regarding your question about shipping ammunition, as a common carrier, UPS transports ammunition that constitutes cartridges and small arms as defined in federal regulations. UPS has safety protocols to help ensure the safe transport of ammunition in our network. We work with our customers to address their concerns including those with packaging. You can find out more about how to ship your ammunition on UPS.com," Glenn read.

"To [UPS], it's just a write-off. However, it's becoming a very expensive write-off. I would like to thank you for bringing a lot of attention to this because it really is a big deal," Collins said to Glenn. "It impacts people on multiple levels, more than your average citizen would think. Imagine if the police department doesn't receive the ammunition that they need to serve their civic duties."

"Well, imagine if you got sloppy with ammunition and you were just kind of losing some from time to time. What would they accuse you of?" Glenn replied. "There's no excuse. It's either theft from their own employees or it is part of a hidden policy that is disrupting the flow of ammunition ... and their stonewalling here bothers me, because there should be an answer. What happened to it?"

For the first time in its 67-year history, Disneyland omitted Walt Disney's iconic opening day speech from its anniversary celebration, leaving fans to wonder how the company could have gone so "woke" that they would even erase Walt Disney from Disneyland.

But Glenn Beck thinks the reason is actually easy to spot if you listen carefully to what Walt Disney was really saying back in 1955:

To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world. Thank you.

"Do you hear what they deleted? And can you understand why they deleted it? To all those who enter here, greetings. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, and the hard facts, that created America. To send them fourth as a source of courage and inspiration throughout the world [...] They're not only cutting Walt, the founder, out of Disney, but they're also cutting America out," said Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Program" Tuesday.

"The America that we all grew up in, the America that we thought we knew, is gone. But it's only on hold. And it's on hold, because it is in each of us — those of us who lived it, who know its truth, who know its promise, who have received its inspiration — it should now give us courage to continue to stand up, because we know what it was. Our kids don't. But I want you to know that it has only been put in a closet for a while, and it is our job to open that door and take it back out of the closet. It's only on hiatus if we choose, otherwise it is gone," he warned.

Glenn said he believes Walt Disney created Disneyland to be the exact opposite of what Disney now is. The original mission statement was about who we are as Americans, and who we can still be. But we must recognize that times have changed. We're not living in the same country anymore, and we're not playing by the same rules.
