Sign language interpreter from Mandela service had extensive criminal record

The crazy story of the sign language interpreter from Nelson Mandela’s memorial service just got a little crazier. Not only was he communicating gibberish, he also has a criminal record which included murder charges dating back to 2003. How and why was this man allowed within arms reach of the President and other world leaders? Is our President safe?

“I want to share a story with you and tell you that there is definitely something wrong. This just broke from the Times of Israel. According to a South African news network, Thamsanqa Jantjie… faced a rape charge in 1994, theft in 1995, housebreaking charge in 1997, malicious damage to property in 1998, murder, attempted murder, and kidnapping charges in 2003,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It is unclear whether he ever served time in prison, but what is clear: ‘Many of the charges brought against him were dropped because he was found to be mentally unfit to stand trial.’ Even more bizarrely, it's not clear whether the murder charge against him in 2003 was ever properly resolved because the court file against him, quote, ‘is mysteriously empty.’”

It is still unclear who allowed Jantjie to be on stage in the first place, but perhaps the more important question is: Why was President Obama allowed to be on stage with this man in the first place?

Okay. Let me tell you something. Something is wrong here,” Glenn said. “And if our Secret Service is not mobilizing to, A, get to the bottom of this but, B, to put another dynamic ring around this President, it is the crime of this century and it will last for 100 years because something is wrong here.”

When you consider the facts of the situation (however sparse they may be), you can’t help but wonder who knew what in this situation and when they knew it.

The South African government has said they are investigating the situation, but the business that hired Jantjie “mysteriously disappeared.” Furthermore, while the files of Jantjie’s past crimes exist many of the documents do not. It is documented, however, that he has been found mentally unfit to stand trial.

“Now here's the other part: He said he was hallucinating while on stage. I believe him… This is exactly the kind of guy you hire to stand next to all of the world leaders at something like this, hoping that he will do something,” Glenn said. “I believe it is not unreasonable to check his bloodstream to find out if anybody jacked him on anything to have him hallucinate. And I'm not saying that our President was the target… He might have been, but it might have just been enough to say somebody caused some kind of problem at this for whatever the reason. But something is really wrong here. Really wrong.”

It may be easy to point fingers at the Secret Service in situations such as this, but Glenn had a theory as to why the President may have gone forth with his speech despite the uncertainty surrounding Jantjie:

Let me give you a plausible way that that happened… Forget about the idea that this guy was supposed to target our President… Now let's explain the Secret Service. On the way over, this whole thing has not been planned. As Dan Bongino said, there's no excuse for this. This should have been planned [in advance]. Everybody knew that he was sick. Everybody knew that he was going to die soon. How do you not have all of these plans in place… That's the way you do things. Everybody does that. They didn't.

So the President is on the way over with, you know, President Bush and all of the dignitaries from the United States… And the Secret Service comes in to you… and your advisors are all around you. Remember, these advisors are the same ones who are either so wildly Marxist and corrupt that they are intentionally tubing our country, or, they are so incompetent that they can't even build a website that can take your money. Okay? So that's who's surrounding this guy. And they're standing there with him. And the Secret Service comes in and says, “Mr. President, I'm sorry, but we just got the plan with the schedule. And I'm sorry, we don't know who's on the stage with you. We don't know who the interpreter is. They have him within arm's-length of you. We can't get any answers on that. We don't know how this is all coming out. It's wildly disorganized.” If I were the president, I would look at them and say, "What are you suggesting?" "Mr. President, unless we can get these things locked up, I suggest that you do not speak."

That's when the two advisors say, "Mr. President, please. The entire world is coming to this. All of the prime ministers, all of the world leaders, you cannot be the only one that says, ‘I'm sorry, but your security isn't good enough.’ It will be a slap in the face to all of South Africa, South African security, and quite frankly, Mr. President, they will take this and make you look like an egomaniac… that you're the only one that said, ‘No, I can't do it,’ while all of the other world leaders are there and they're fine. Mr. President, it will be absolute political suicide for you to do it.”

Secret Service responds: “Mr. President, I'm begging you, something's not right here. Don't do it.” He walks away and the political advisors say, "Mr. President… do you really think they're going to get through? It's not just Secret Service. SAS is here. Everybody is here. Everybody is here. Security is going to be fine, Mr. President.”

“That's how that happened. I would bet my life on it, that's what would happen,” Glenn concluded. “And unfortunately somebody is betting our President's life. I don't like this President, but I want this President to serve in health – in great health – until the day we take his junk and throw it out on the street the last day.”

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
