Glenn interviews Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach about immigration protest

On radio yesterday, Glenn shared the story of Kansas State Attorney General Kris Kobach who was targeted over the weekend by members of the pro-immigration reform group Sunflower Community Action Network.

Protestors marched on Kobach’s home on Saturday, leaving behind a pile of shoes “of the fathers he’s deported.” Kobach was targeted because he is considered the architect of Arizona’s immigration law.

This morning, Glenn interviewed Kobach about the incident.

“He is a very brave man and leading the way to stand against illegal immigration. Not against immigration. Against illegal immigration,” Glenn said of Kobach. “He is leading the way. Kansas is now the only state, I believe left, where you are forced to produce identification to go vote. This Supreme Court yesterday overturned the Arizona case. It's crazy. It is absolutely crazy.”

Fortunately for Kobach and his family, when the some 700 organized protestors descended on his home on Saturday, he was not home.

“I just really feel blessed we weren't home, because I've got four young daughters, aged 9 and younger, and they would have been absolutely terrified,” Kobach said. “This would have been sort of a scarring event in their lives, seeing people, a mob descend on our house with megaphones and signs.”

Like Glenn began to explain yesterday, Kobach reiterated that the Sunflower Community Action Network is a well-organized and well-funded group that has won grants from progressive foundations for its work for economic and social justice.

“Well, the organizers of the rally - first of all, they spent a lot of money on this, or the mob action, whatever you want to call it. They had four buses, presumably rented or purchased, they brought in a busload of people all the way from Wichita, about three hours from the Kansas City metro area,” he explained. “It's called the Sunflower Community Action Network, an organization that sprung up right as ACORN folded its tent in Kansas and it appears to have the same leadership and structure.”

While the media has largely ignored this story, the limited coverage has so far painted the perpetrators as innocent protestors.

“But I want to share something with your listeners,” Kobach said. “In the left wing media has, in response to this said, ‘Oh, there's nothing to worry about. These are just protesters.’ No, these aren't protesters. These are people who have an audience of one. If they were protesting, wanting to get exposure to the public media, they would be in front of my office building. But no, they went to a quiet suburban neighborhood, stood in front of my house. No one else had to hear them, except for a few neighbors. They were trying to intimidate.”

Just as with any immigration conversation, there is an important and necessary distinction to be made between those that choose to enter the United States legally and those that do so illegally.

“Think about the brazenness of what these members of this mob are doing. The ones who are illegal aliens, they are saying: let's break the law and enter the United States illegally, then let's trespass on this elected official's property and there are a number of other criminal threats that also apply, and then let's demand amnesty,” Kobach said. “So we'll break all kind of state and federal laws, then while standing on the front porch of an elected person's house, we are going to demand through a megaphone that we be given amnesty.”

Kobach made it clear that he will not back down from his position on illegal immigration, and he challenged other elected officials to also be steadfast in their convictions.

“Our whole system depends upon elected officials responding to the needs of their constituents and not being threatened as so often happens in a third world country,” he said. “This gets to the very core of what our American system depends on, and that is we don't have mobs, we don't have this kind of pressure put on decision-makers.”

“I appreciate your bravery, Kris, and I feel for your family and your children. I really do,” Glenn said. “I know what you are going through, and you just do all that you can do. Do all that you can do. It's worth it in the end.”

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
