Strange bedfellows alert: Glenn agrees with border patrol union rep fighting for agents’ safety and rights

With the so-called humanitarian crisis at our southern border ever deteriorating, Glenn found himself in the company of a strange bedfellow on Tuesday. TheBlaze’s senior Washington correspondent Sara Carter has been reporting from the border town of McAllen, Texas for several days now, and her latest article details the violation of rights border patrol agents are facing. Shawn Moran, spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council – the union that represents Border Patrol agents – has spoken out against the violations, and Glenn found himself in agreement with Moran on radio this morning.

“We know that our borders are completely out of control… Reports came out this weekend from the border patrol union that MS-13 gang members… are pushing our border agents to the breaking point,” Glenn explained. “And our border patrol agents are under attack not only from MS-13 and the drug cartels but under attack from our government. This is a point where we can show a clear distinction, have a real demonstration that the truth makes strange bedfellows.”

If you are a longtime listener, you know Glenn typically does not see eye-to-eye with union brass from any industry, but he appreciates the warnings the border patrol union has been heeding for a number of years.

“If I were anti-union, I would dismiss this warning from the border patrol union. I haven't dismissed this warning for years,” Glenn said. “They have been crying out, ‘Will someone please listen to us.’ Because my agenda is truth, and I believe yours is too, we have to check the veracity of the truth involved here. And the truth is: After we checked it, the border patrol unions need to be heard.”

What is currently happening at our border and the danger these men and women face actually gets back to the root of why unions were formed in the first place – to protect the rights and safety of the worker. As Carter’s report chronicles, our border agents are in serious danger:

A U.S. Border Patrol manager in the Tucson, Arizona, sector has forbidden agents from bringing cellphones or any electronic devices to work after photographs were leaked several weeks ago showing some of the hundreds of children being housed at the overcrowded Nogales processing center. But according to a union representative, the manager’s actions violate established, collectively-bargained guidelines.

Only a month ago, the agents were allowed to carry their personal cellphones at work to make calls if radio communications went down.

Border Patrol agents in Nogales, Arizona, have also been banned from speaking to the media and have been advised by their manager to refer reporters to the department’s official representatives, an agent told TheBlaze on the condition of anonymity. Like in Arizona, Texas Border Patrol agents have also been told not to speak to the media after similar photos of overcrowded conditions at their facilities were made public. Agents across the country have been threatened with disciplinary action, termination and in one case, criminal charges for getting caught speaking to reporters.

In Nogales, it was the patrol agent in charge, Leslie Lawson, who issued the ban on electronic devices. But Shawn Moran, spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council — the union that represents Border Patrol agents — said a patrol agent in charge does not have the authority to circumvent the union-bargaining process on cellphone usage, and that the only person who can change that policy is a sector chief, and the collective bargaining process still applies.

“Your fellow union brothers and sisters are in trouble – serious, life-threatening, job-threatening, career-changing trouble,” Glenn said. “This isn't about their wage increases or their vacations. They have their life on the line. And their employer, in their arrogance, has no fear of anybody.”

Glenn proceeded to lambast other union leaders for not supporting the plight of the border patrol agents – especially given the threat illegal immigrants pose to union jobs.

“It's puzzling to me… because even without the life-threatening crisis, fellow union members, where are you,” Glenn asked. “Forget about the life saving. The unions used to be against illegals coming in because they would take jobs from the American workers.  Now, here's your border patrol, who has a union, saying… ‘We can't do anything. We can't protect ourselves.’ Nobody's listening to that.”

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
