Glenn: This is probably the hardest thing I have ever asked of you

Glenn and TheBlaze have been covering the growing crisis at the southern border for a number of weeks now. With the situation further deteriorating, Glenn came before his audience on Monday morning with an interesting ask. In fact, Glenn described what he was about to say as “the hardest thing” he has ever asked for. But as he shared troubling new information about the humanitarian crisis at the border, Glenn asked his listeners to consider donating to Mercury One.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

I'm not going to tell you who is giving me this information because things down at the border are extraordinarily difficult and not what you are being told it is. The Administration – and I believe this also includes the progressives Republicans – are trying to keep the lid on the media right now. And the churches are the ones who are pulling people's feet out of the fire. Our state reps now have gone and toured the facilities that are happening in Laredo, Brownsville, Van Horn, McAllen, and all across the border. This one particular facility that I want to talk to you about holds 400 people but currently it has 1,200 kids in it. Some of them are toddlers. 1,200. 400 is what the max capacity is.

Let me ask you: How fast would the federal government or the state shut you down if you had anything that said maximum capacity 400, and you had 1,200 people if there? Three times the amount. Is anybody seeing a problem with this? The federal government is breaking their own laws and they are keeping this information from us.

I am told by people who have toured and work at this facility that when they open the doors to go in, the stench is so bad the politicians that were to go in gagged and backed out. One of the churches is planning on converting their entire church, the largest in the area, to become a holding facility because of how bad things are. Things are so desperate right now, hygiene and food are the number one problem. Clothes are further down the list. They need portable showers and Port-A-Johns. They have no way to wash their clothes. They need food and hygiene care right now. Many of them have not eaten in days. FEMA is supposed to be down there. They are not down there.

The more I get into it, the more angry I get. The more I see and the more I hear from both the Republicans and the Democrats, the more disgusted I am with them. And then we're sitting here in this situation to where we have to ask ourselves: Who are we? What is it we're going to do?

I have come to a place this weekend that I believe in the Constitution of the United States. I believe in the United States of America. And that is my citizenship. But that is my secondary citizenship. The Constitution of the United States of America was God-inspired and man tried to write. It guarantees some basic freedoms for us, and that's why it exists. But that is not where those freedoms come from. Our freedoms come from a higher citizenship. And now we have people who are in need. As I sit and I look at what's happening on the border and then I look at whose border it is, we've never seen a humanitarian crisis like this. We never had refugee camps in America that I know of unless we were the progressives that rounded the Japanese up or the Germans or the Italians. We've not done that. In America, we pride ourselves on the fact that we're the good guys, right?

That's who we are. We pull our wounded enemies off the battlefield and we treat them in our hospitals. We offer medical care to our prisoners – even those who have done the most heinous things, the worst of the worst, we still believe in treating them in humane ways. And it's because it's simple. It is really simple to Americans. And this is what makes us different. We believe humanity is a higher standard on the battlefield. We believe humanity is a higher stand than the rule of law. We believe helping people, being charitable, being good, is what makes us. We have a higher calling.

The same thing goes for our borders. Humanity, our humanness, is a higher standard than immigration. To consider the well-being of others is what makes us human. It's what makes us Americans.

I have to tell you, I am so mad at our politicians right now, I can't take it. I'm to the point now where I'm beyond mad. I beg them, please, please, for everything that is good and decent, secure our borders and fix our immigration policies. Please, don't you see the misery that is being caused all over the country? Please. Can you not hear, can you not smell what's happening on our borders? Please. But I have no faith in Washington anymore.

I still have, thank God, my faith in you. Now we have a choice. We can run down to the borders and secure it ourselves. Let's get our guns. Let's go down there and secure it ourselves. But that doesn't fix the humanitarian crisis. And we have to err on the side of humanity. If we're going to be Americans, a choice has to be made. And we always make the right choice. We really do. As people, we always do. We would rather extend ourselves and see the life of a child protected than err on the side of being silent or still and harm coming to a child while politicians do what politicians do nothing, debate meaningless words. That's what makes them politicians. Acting in a compassionate way is what makes us human. It's what makes us Americans.

I don't know what's going to happen on our border. I don't know what's going to happen with our politicians. I have a feeling I know. And I want no part of it. These people have to be sent home. They have to be sent home. But I can't sleep at night knowing that we know what's going on.

When I got that email, I reached out to Mercury One and asked them, can we send trucks? We just helped with a tornado up in Nebraska. We sent five tractor-trailers within hours. We had five tractor-trailers. This is going to take a lot more than five tractor-trailers. I want to be really clear. I am not for amnesty. I am not for open borders. The policies have to be debated. The laws have to be written. But we can't allow the suffering to happen on our side of the border and know about it.

If you don't want to know about it, you better turn off the radio. Well, oops, it's too late for that. You now know about it. It's like if we were in the hospital, and there was a sick child and they were an immigrant and they're sitting there, anybody, it doesn't matter. We always say, we didn't need universal health care. We know our system was broken. We got that. But we don't want it running through the government because it's going to make it worse. And they said, ‘Well, you can't let people just die of cancer in the streets.’ Nobody was dying of cancer in the streets. You and I both know that when people would go into the hospital, they would get treatment. You know that, and I know that. Because it's what Americans do.

Today, I want to appeal to you. I want you to just think about this, please. The two citizenships that we hold. We will destroy our country if we only recognize the citizenship that we have in our country. If the Constitution of the United States of America is our god, then we are lost already. Our God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Our God demands certain things from us. He demands us to see each other. He demands that we help each other. He demands that we help the child. We help the suffering. We are the Good Samaritan.

There are some who are going to say, ‘I'm not going to help the people. They came across the border.’ Well, okay, but they're here now. They're on our border. Yes, some of them may be MS-13. That's a different argument. We can sort out who's who after we take care of people. That's for the government to do. I'm not talking about we're going to send them into our cities.

I'm saying can we please get them Port-a-Potties. Can we get them portable showers? Can we feed them? You want to show the world what it means to be an American? Then let's do that. Let's put the well being of others on the highest pedestal. I beg our politicians, please, stop seeing Rs and Ds. Stop seeing votes. Start seeing people. You got to get this one right. You can't swamp our cities. You can't swamp our churches. You can't swamp the American people. We're the only lifeboat out there. You want to help people? We have to be strong. You have to get this one right because the American people are charitable.

But the cause of charity, even though it's noble, is not a solution. It's just a means of closing the gap. You have to close the gap. You have to be strong and say, ‘Stop sending us your 3-year-olds. It's not right. It's dangerous for the 3-year-old. Please. Implore to people.’ They are just like you. What parent sends a 3-year-old across the border with a drug smuggler? I'll tell you what. Somebody who sees what's on the other side. Somebody who says there's nothing here. They'd be better off up there. I'll take the chance. What does that tell you? That tells you that things are so out of control in their country, that things are so lawless in their country, that their children don't even have a chance. Why in our wildest dreams would we try to help people in other countries by becoming lawless ourselves? The laws matter. It is up to the President, it is up to the Department of Justice, it is up to our Congress to actually stand by those laws and enforce those laws and if you don't like those laws, then change those laws. But until you do, you have to enforce them and until they do, we have to be charitable.

I don't know how you're going to react. I really don't. This is probably the hardest thing I've ever asked of you because I know how angry you are. I know what you feel on the border because I feel exactly the same way. But what makes us Americans is empathy. What makes us Americans is charity. When our game is divine, and everything that we do is noble, at least everything we strive for is noble, that's when we become America.

Could I ask you to donate to MercuryOne.org. I will promise you that every dollar – even if it is only a dollar – will go to help those in need. We will not stop helping those who are hit by a hurricane or hit by a tornado here in our own country. But now for the first time in my lifetime, we have a humanitarian crisis because the politicians have dropped the ball. Let's not drop the ball ourselves. Let's continue to be Americans.

'Like Hunter Biden without the hookers': Why did Nancy Pelosi's son REALLY join Taiwan trip?

Nearly everyone, from President Joe Biden to the head of the United Nations, agreed that California Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trip to Taiwan was dangerous. Even former President Barack Obama's ambassador to China, Max Baucus, said Pelosi's actions made Biden look even weaker than he already does — and that's really saying something.

So, why did Pelosi risk global war and go against her own party? If you listen to Politco, she's got a "decades-long" beef with China and just wanted to show support for the Asian nation, but the timing of her trip suggests there’s likely more to the story.

On "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposed the Pelosi family's (including her son) lucrative connections to Taiwanese companies and revealed how certain business deals directly related to their trip to Taiwan.

"Nancy Pelosi and her husband and their son ... they love money as a family. By the way, did you know her son went on that trip and was doing business with, oh, wow, some of the people she was meeting with? Did you know that?" Glenn asked. "Sounds a little like Hunter Biden without the hookers and the crack."

Glenn pointed out that when Pelosi was elected to Congress, "somewhere in the late 1700s," her net worth was about $3 million, but by 2008 her family's wealth had ballooned to $31 million. By the end of the Obama term, her wealth had doubled to $61 million, and just two years later it shot up to $114 million.

"Wow! That is not bad beans for a meager public servant. They [Pelosi and her husband] must be master investors and it just took getting elected to public office to truly unlock that secret," Glenn quipped. "Or they were privy to some sort of information that the rest of us don't have access to, kinda like the sale of $5 million in computer chip stock before Congress voted on a recent semiconductor bill," he continued.

"But, surely, Taiwan has nothing to do with their own little private cash machine, right? ... I'm sure it had nothing to do with her husband's stock trading of companies that make computer chips. And it has nothing to do with, at the same time, Nancy is working on a semiconductor bill. It surely has nothing to do with the fact that the largest semiconductor manufacturer, TSMC, is right there in Taiwan, right? I mean, surely, with all of this heat, Nancy Pelosi would be smart enough not to be seen anywhere near Taiwan's semiconductor manufacturers," Glenn said.

"I'm not saying this might double the Pelosis' millions again, but I'm not not saying that either, you know?" he added.



On the radio program, Glenn continued to break down the hushed business deals between the Pelosi family and Taiwanese companies and revealed how it all directly relates to their not-at-all suspicious trip to the Asian nation.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.
