MUST WATCH viral video of baby making crazy trick shots

You’ve seen trick shot videos on the internet before. Talented college kids chucking basketballs from the upper deck, rooftops, moving objects, and any other crazy spot you can dream up -- and get it right into the hoop. But what America hasn’t seen is a little kid trick shot video - until now.

Watch the video below:

Glenn interviewed the kid's dad, Joseph Ashby, on radio this morning:

Transcript of their interview is below:

GLENN: There is a ‑‑ there's a video that is absolutely unbelievable and it's got, like, I don't know, 3 1/2 million views now and it's been sweeping for a while and it is of this little 2‑year‑old kid that is shooting the basketball and, you know, you're like, okay, well, he's shooting the basketball. He's got a little teeny basketball and he's right up next to, you know, a little plastic basketball hoop. And as the video goes on, it gets more and more incredible, until he's on the basketball court, like 2, throwing a basketball and I mean, really amazing trick shots and everything else. And you think that there's no way this ‑‑ there's no way this kid is ‑‑ I mean, this has got to be ‑‑ how is this possible? Well, we found out earlier this week that the kid's dad is Joseph Ashby and he is the morning host on our affiliate in Wichita, Kansas, KQAM. And he's on the phone with us now. Joe, how are ya?

ASHBY: Doing really good. You picked the greatest time to have me on the air. We're about to go through a security checkpoint at LaGuardia.

GLENN: Oh, congratulations. Congratulations on that. Good luck. And you'll enjoy ‑‑

ASHBY: You know, I always wanted to meet ‑‑

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Do you have a cigarette? Because you're going to need one afterwards.

ASHBY: I don't.

GLENN: I'm glad ‑‑

ASHBY: I've always wanted to meet you, Glenn. I thought it would be under different circumstances. When I started hosting the KQAM morning show, I thought this is going to be great, Glenn Beck's going to hear me and he's going to ask me to guest host and it's going to be awesome. And now I'm meeting you because my 2‑year‑old son can make cool basketball shots. It's a little different than what I had in mind but it's cool.

GLENN: You'll have to come down and I'll pretend to be interested in you. But you'll have to come down and bring your son with a basketball hoop. We'll have to ‑‑

STU: (Laughing.)

GLENN: He's amazing. Did you ‑‑ where ‑‑ did he ‑‑ how did this happen?

ASHBY: Well, it was sort of an accident. It's funny to see everybody's reaction because he does it so much that we didn't ‑‑ you know, we like it but we didn't really think as much of it as everybody else does because he started when he was real young and he made, like you say, little baskets, close range with small balls and a big hoop and then it just blossomed from there. Now he can do fairly high hoops with proportionally size ball that looks pretty awesome.

GLENN: But he's like, he seems to also kind of understand physics.

PAT: (Laughing.)

GLENN: I mean ‑‑

PAT: Trick shots and all that.

GLENN: He's doing trick shots where he knows if I hit this one, it will go ‑‑ he's amazing.

ASHBY: Well, I'm an aerospace engineer by trade. So maybe I passed something along in the bloodstream in that respect.

GLENN: Now come on, are you being serious? No, you're not.

ASHBY: Here's the thing. My one regret for the video is that I didn't do it like four months ago because he could make all those shots again. And I could have said two things: Number one, that he was only 1 instead of 2; and he could have endorsed Mitt Romney and maybe turned the tide of the election.

PAT: Yeah, it would have been great.

GLENN: Would have been ‑‑ would have been great.

PAT: Nice.

GLENN: Can I ‑‑ by the way, the video is up on TheBlaze.com right at the front page at the top of the banner. It will just say see the video that was on the Glenn Beck morning show today. But you'll have to see this video. I mean, I'm ‑‑ you know, these trick shot videos are really amazing when you get somebody, you know ‑‑ you know, some college star or something and he's doing these amazing trick shots. This is incredible to see this little 2‑year‑old do this. Anyway, so Joe, let me ask you something. Should I call you, is it Joseph or Joe?

ASHBY: Joe's fine.

GLENN: Joe, let me ask you ‑‑ first of all, let me thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I mean this sincerely, for sending us Sebelius. What the hell is wrong with you?

ASHBY: I don't know. I was ‑‑ now listen to me. Listen to me. This is not my fault. I took over this morning show last year in May and so Governor Brownback had already been elected. So I wasn't here to put my hand out and stop the course of history until then.

GLENN: Holy cow. How does a ‑‑ how does a state go from Kathleen Sebelius to Brownback? I mean, isn't that a little steep of a pendulum swing?

ASHBY: Basically she was sort of like the female version of John Kerry and instead of marrying into money, she married into politics. A famous Western, you know, political Kansas family, right? All these conservative rural voters love the name Sebelius and that was really a tide‑Turner in the election. Go figure.

GLENN: Unbelievable. So now Kansas is trying to ‑‑ I mean, looks like Brownback is trying to turn us into ‑‑ turn you into Texas which ‑‑

ASHBY: He said, in his state‑of‑the‑state address earlier in last month, I guess it is, he said look out, Texas, here comes Kansas. So you talk about people moving to Texas, which is totally cool that I'm trying to turn my state into Texas. So...

GLENN: Well, you know, some states actually have a chance of grabbing onto freedom and there's a few of them now that are starting to do it, and I'm glad to hear that Kansas is ‑‑ Kansas is doing it. Except you have Agenda 21 now in Kansas.

ASHBY: Well, yeah. The main ‑‑ Wichita is the biggest city in Kansas and the county that it's in, the county commissioner is like, yeah, we'll take the grants and there are a few strings attached but it's nothing out of the ordinary. And if they ever ‑‑ you know, if it ever gets hard, we can just drop it. If they ever ask us to do anything we want, we'll just stop taking grants.

GLENN: Right.

ASHBY: And I'm like, yeah, okay, because governments ‑‑ always say no to free money from the federal government.

GLENN: That's right. And when you take the free money and it's got the strings attached, it's so easy to cut yourself out of that. They don't mind.

ASHBY: It's so easy.

GLENN: They don't mind that they gave you all that money and now you're like, no, I'm not going to do that. They love that.

ASHBY: It's like the trick shot. You know, I keep getting these merchandise people. They're like, we want to send you our stuff. And I'm like, really? What for? And they are like, oh, I don't know, if you ever make another video, maybe you could use our basketball hoop in it. I'm just like, oh, I see how it is.

GLENN: So you've got all these basketball hoops coming, though, right? I mean, you're not turning down ‑‑

ASHBY: We'll probably have a houseful of them by the time we're done.

GLENN: You're not getting rid of that. Well, Joe, I'd love to meet you sometime. It's great talking to you and I guess keep up the ‑‑ well, I was going to say keep up the good work with your son but I mean, you're not really doing anything. You're just standing around watching him, taking a video.

ASHBY: I'm the choreographer. So you've got to give me a little bit of credit. He has my genes. You've got to give me a little credit for that, but it's mostly him.

GLENN: Does he watch basketball? Is he fascinated by it?

ASHBY: That's kind of the cute story is when he was, like, prewalking, early walking, he would kind of cuddle with me at night when I watched NBA League Path on my laptop and so as soon as he was able to walk with, you know, out help and whatever, he knew what to do with a basketball.

GLENN: That's really incredible. Thanks, Joe, I appreciate it. We'll talk to you again.

ASHBY: Hey, you know, I've got to get back. A lot of other countries have been giving me media requests and the deposed prince of Nigeria needs my help. He didn't mention the video but I figured I better do something for him. So I've got to go.

GLENN: All right. Well, you have fun in Nigeria. Thanks a lot, man. Bye‑bye.

See that video now at TheBlaze.com. Pretty ‑‑ pretty amazing.

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.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
