'American Sniper' Chris Kyle killed at Texas gun range

Mercury One is now raising money to honor Kyle. You can go HERE to donate. One hundred percent of the funds raised will go to The Chris Kyle Memorial and The FITCO Fund, a non-profit started by Chris Kyle to help veterans overcome PTSD.

Original Story:

"Horrible tragedy happened this weekend," Glenn said as he started on radio today. "Chris Kyle, probably the greatest American sniper ever and a good, decent, decent man, he goes over and he is a Navy SEAL and he survives. He comes home, and he's helping another Serviceman. He's helping a guy who has PTSD and, you know, the best thing that you can do, when guys come home, a lot of our military, they're hunters and so they grow up in the culture of guns. And one of the best things that you can do is you get them back on the range, you get them back and put the positive spin on guns again and you put the hunting back into them. Well, we don't know all of the facts. I've heard stories this weekend but no need to get into them until we know that they're facts."

"Chris decides to help this guy out and he's on the range and he's helping him learn how to shoot, long‑range shoot. And he's down on the ground and apparently he looks up and that's when the guy he's trying to help opens fire and shoots him, on the range."

"I heard this this weekend and I ‑‑ I don't know what's happening to us. It is ‑‑ it is one of the strangest things on ‑‑ what was it, on Friday? Was it Thursday or Friday we had the DA here in Dallas shot and killed on the streets? It is so bizarre. To lose Chris Kyle, how many of our Servicemen and our Navy SEALs and our special forces are we going to have to lose? Over and over and over again they're traumatized."

"Our hearts go out to everybody who is involved, everybody. Our hearts go out to the military. And to Chris' family and quite honestly the shooter's family as well. They are going to try to make this into a "military is too dangerous to even have, you know, weapons, they're all psychos" and everything else. It is coming. Whether it happens this time or not. I'm surprised it hasn't already started to happen."

"But let's keep this into perspective on what is going on. The United States government is failing our military. We ask these guys to go out in our name and then it is an absolute nightmare to get any of the paperwork done. And to get the benefits and the paperwork done, what they're doing is they're telling all of our Service personnel, 'You know what you need to do? You need to just fill out ‑‑ just fill this out. Just say you have PTSD. Because it will make it so much easier.' So they're telling our military to say they have PTSD. And then what? And then what? We're not helping them."

"I talked to Rick Perry yesterday morning. I called up the governor of Texas and said, 'Okay, what happened? How did this happen? And what can we do?' And he said, 'Glenn, the State of Texas is ‑‑ we take care of our military.' He said we are ‑‑ he said, 'It is wrong that we have to write a check, but we're writing a check so we can get our veterans ‑‑ so they can get their benefits.' He said, 'The paperwork alone is an absolute nightmare.'"

"We'll get into it probably tomorrow. We have a couple of guests on tomorrow night's broadcast that we've been working on since we heard the news to tell you the story of what's happening to our military personnel. But our salute to Chris Kyle. Thank you, Chris. And to his family, we're sorry for your loss."

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
