Mayor Gun Control confronted over his armed entourage

As one of the most outspoken public figures on gun control, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not shy about expressing his opinion on what should be done about America's "gun problem". The Washington Post has even described Mayor Bloomberg as "America's most prominent and deep-pocketed advocate for gun control."

While Mayor Bloomberg may be quick to take away your guns, he has no problem with surrounding himself with a team of armed security officers. Why does Bloomberg get to defend himself when he thinks the majority of Americans shouldn't have the ability to purchase and carry firearms?

Investigative journalist Jason Mattera asked the Mayor in an explosive exchange yesterday: “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?” 

Watch the exchange here:

After being all but accosted by the Mayor's security team, Jason was continually followed down the street and questioned. His crime? Asking a question.

Glenn points out that obviously, no one is opposed to the Mayor of the city having armed protection if it's needed. The problem is the hypocrisy of the Mayor knowing that he needs to be armed or have armed security, but not allowing the average law-abiding American.

"I can't provide my own security in the city.  I have to hire New York City cops," Glenn explained. "I don't want a police officer proceeding me.  Nothing against police officers, but police officers are meant to do exactly what that guy did:  To go back and clean up, go back and attack.  They are not, they are not made to get the principal out.  It's a completely different philosophy.  It's not good for me to be protected by a police officer.  Because theirs is stand and shoot.  Stand and ‑‑ that's not what a protective detail does.  A protective detail makes sure it doesn't come in, which police officers can do, and if something happens, get out.  Get out.  The Secret Service gets you out.  They don't stand and fight.  And so it's a fundamental mind shift.  You don't want somebody that can't make that mind shift that fast."

Bloomberg isn't the only politician like this. Far too many live under the philosophy that they are somehow above the laws they set.

"We are truly living in the time of kings and lords and dukes and earls and ladies," Glenn said. "We are living in a time where titles mean something.  Titles didn't used to mean anything." 

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
