#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."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.
