#FreeTahmooressi: Mike Slater shows how easy it is to accidentally cross into Mexico

TheBlaze has been following the story of Marine Corps Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi who was arrested in Mexico for weapons possession. Tahmooressi has said he took a wrong turn and didn't mean to cross the border, and now faces a sentence of six to 21 years in a Mexican prison for carrying his registered AR-15 rifle, .45-caliber pistol, and 12-gauge pump shotgun in his car across the border. Mike Slater, host of TheBlaze Radio Network's 'The Mike Slater Show', joined Glenn to describe how easy it is to cross into Mexico following Tahmooressi's path.

"It all goes so fast.  You’re driving south on the 5, and you’re going, you know, 75 miles per hour, and then you’re there.  First of all, you blow by that last exit, Exit 1A, and you’re right at the checkpoint.  It splits into six lanes.  There’s green lights for each lane, so obviously your instinct is to go," Slater said.

"He wasn’t like speeding away from the police once he got to the border.  They pulled him into secondary, as they would anyone who had a trunkload full of stuff, and there’s video that we hear, there’s surveillance video of him at the border, not belligerent at all.  He got out of his truck, pointed to the back of his truck," he added.

To prove how easy it was to make the same mistake Tahmooressi did, Slater made the drive himself, which you can see in the video below:

So what can you do?

Glenn said, "Well, you’re going to have to make some noise.  There is a hearing on May 28 where the Mexican border officials will give a statement to the judge handling Tahmooressi’s case.  We need to make as much of an uproar before this hearing.  Rallies have taken place all across the country today."

"Even sign the petition on the White House page.  They have to respond to it if it’s 100,000 people that are signing up.  Call your congressman.  Call your senator.  Call anybody that will listen.  Get your friends.  Maybe you could just do this, maybe you could just tweet a picture of yourself holding one of these."

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:
