Meet the former Secret Service agent running for Congress in Maryland

Last year, Glenn introduced his audience to former Secret Service agent and Maryland congressional candidate Dan Bongino. Bongino worked in the service for the Bush and Obama Administrations, but he ultimately left his job because he felt like “part of the problem, not part of the solution.” Bongino is running for Congress in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District, and he joined Glenn on radio this morning ahead of Tuesday’s primary.

Glenn began by offering a heartfelt characterization of Bongino as a person and candidate.

“In case you don't know who Dan Bongino is, Dan Bongino is an amazing Secret Service agent that I have just tremendous respect for. He's one of the best men I know. I would love to have him in Congress or in the Senate in service of our nation. He has protected Bushs and he protected the Obamas,” Glenn explained. “He got out because he started listening to our television program and radio program and… he woke up and realized, ‘Wow, I'm not hearing any of these values around people in Washington. And that's a problem.’”

“He went back to school and started studying von Mises and everything else. And now he is running for the 6th Congressional District in Maryland,” he continued. “He has put, you know, his heart, his soul, and really everything his family has up on the auction block to be able to afford to be able to do this. And I think he's one of the guys that could go in and not lose his soul.”

With all that is going on in the world today, Glenn asked Bongino to share his thoughts on immigration reform and what can be done to thwart the influx of people pouring over the border:

Listen, we're in a lot of trouble at the border. It's a sensitive issue for me. Obviously my wife being a first-generation immigrant who did it the legal way, it's just chaos. Chaos is not compassion. Putting out a kind of tacit message come here because I'm going to unconstitutionally reform some part of the DREAM Act… Drop your children off after the border and somehow they'll get a pass is not compassion. That's only liberal compassion where results don't matter.

And, ironically, what we’re seeing is partisan outrage against this. The President's approval ratings are in the tank but even in Baltimore City, a bastion of liberal values. Folks here say we're going to open up a Social Security Administration facility to warehouse people in there. Moving across the border illegally and the Baltimore City residents said absolutely no way. The President has shown less than zero leadership on this – as he's done most issues recently and it's showing in the polls.

During his time in the Secret Service, Bongino spent a lot of time in the Middle East, and he offered his opinion on the situation in Iraq:

This Sunni/Shi'a generational battle, I hate to say this, but there's no benefit for us right now to get involved in this. We have to start thinking short term. You know, we're nation building abroad. And right now we're struggling at home. Our military is being hollowed out. Our economy is struggling. But anybody can complain. What do you do?

When I was in the Secret Service traveling around engaging in these massive security operations, there was only one thing I found that had a positive short-term and long-term benefit for us. And frankly, it wasn't boots on the ground all the time. It was joint training exercises with their military. It was some degree of intelligence sharing. It doesn't have to be a robust operation, even a smaller operation.

I spent a lot of time in the Middle East. The people who believe you're the great Satan so to say… When people look you in the eye and they see who you really are, what Americans really are, and what they're really about, it's really hard to believe a lot of the propaganda… A lot of these kids have been indoctrinated since they're infants [that] we're the problem. America is the problem. It's very tough when you meet someone and you really see it.

I would say an intelligence footprint over there, a training footprint. But are we going to get involved on one side? We're reinforcing the Iranian regime on the Shi'a side and the other side we're reinforcing al-Qaeda. The answer is get out of it. I'm not sacrificing my daughter, your daughter, or anybody else's daughter for a sectarian war that we've shown no evidence of stopping throughout the generations.

“I love this guy and feel strongly that he is the kind of guy that we need off in office. If you would like to know more about him, you can go to Bongino.com. If you care to donate, you can do that as well,” Glenn concluded. “Maryland, tomorrow, 6th Congressional District. And it is just over the border from where the Brat miracle happened. Let's hope for another miracle tomorrow.”

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
