'We are under invasion': Louie Gohmert talks to Dana Loesch about his trip to the border

During a House Judiciary hearing earlier this week, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) voiced his concerns about the health threats that have accompanied the Obama Administration's immigration policy. Gohmert said Obama is "luring" children across the border by promising them a "free pass," and that has resulted in an H1N1 flu outbreak at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Additionally, there have been reports of lice and scabies outbreaks at various border patrol posts.

Gohmert is particularly familiar with what is currently transpiring at border towns in Texas after visiting McAllen, Texas last week. He joined guest host Dana Loesch on Thursday's Glenn Beck Program to discuss what he witnessed and what must be done to curb this crisis.

"We are under invasion, and this President will not protect our country," Gohmert said emphatically. "And he will not step in and enforce the law as it is."

Last week, Glenn reacted to a Los Angeles Times report that put the number of people crossing the border into frightening perspective. At the McAllen border patrol station alone, some 1,500 people daily are occupying a space that is meant to house 250 detainees. Likewise, other smaller stations in the area are housing two or three times their capacity. Gohmert confirmed that report.

"I showed up at the McAllen border patrol facility where they’ve got over 1,000 - maybe over 1,200 people. The facility is not supposed to have that many people," he said. "But the reason they have them is because of a law previously passed that says, 'Gee, if border patrol pick up children, then they immediately have to go to Health and Human Services.' Well, as you know, Health and Human Services is busy right now taking over everybody’s healthcare."

As a result, the situation on the ground at these border patrol facilities is truly disturbing. Those who are known to have lice or scabies are cordoned off by nothing more than "red crime scene tape." Meanwhile, Gohmert described seeing people "lying on the concrete floor" and "huddling" in the corner.

"It is a terrible situation," Gohmert said. "As one border patrolman said, 'I would be livid, I would be ballistic if my child were in this situation.' But the border patrol’s hands are tied because the law says Health and Human Services have to take them, and they’re not picking them up."

While border states like Texas are beginning to take matters into their own hands by stepping up drug enforcement efforts in an attempt to thwart the influx of drug cartels and gang members crossing the border, Gohmert reiterated that most people's hands are tied.

"And that’s why I say… there should not be any new immigration bill until the President enforces the law as it is," Gohmert concluded, "and our Department of 'Injustice' begins to be a Department of Justice."

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.
