#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."

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
