Glenn: This is a repudiation of all those who claim we are not exceptional

As Glenn prepares for his trip to the border this weekend, he offered an impassioned monologue about what the immigration crisis says about our nation. For all of those – President Obama included – who try to downplay American exceptionalism and the role of this country as a beacon of hope for the rest of the world, this crisis should serve as a wakeup call.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

America has always been the beacon of hope for the rest of the world. Always. If it weren't so, people would not risk their lives and the lives of their children just to gain a foothold on our solid ground.

Think of this: There are thousands of children that now being sent by loving parents, who have not only put their children on death trains, but some of them have paid up to $7,000 to smuggle their children to the United States of America. That amounts to a year's salary for some of these parents. The fact that is happening should be seen for what it is: A repudiation – a strong repudiation of all those that claim we are not exceptional land and we are not an exceptional country and people.

Think of this. There are mineral-rich lands everywhere. There are beautiful vistas everywhere. But what we have always had is a rule of law based on some fundamental principles that have shaped this nation into what it's always been known for. We are the nation that doesn't leave men behind on the battlefield, or at least we used to. We're the first responders when someone needs aid. Even if it's an enemy on the battlefield, we'll a patch you back up. We led the drive for food in Ethiopia and Haiti. Our dollars, our churches, even the Peace Corps are a beacon of light in the world's darkest and most dangerous places. Even in war, we do not just kill our enemy and go home when the war is over because we always had the Judeo-Christian ethic of hate the sin and not the sinner. We heal the people and their land.

Even when we dealt with the Nazis, some of the worst scum ever to walk or crawl on their bellies on the earth, we didn't drag their bodies through the streets, as some nations do. We found the leaders, and we gave them an open and fair trail for all the world to see. Meanwhile, we airlifted food to the starving Germans, then we helped rebuild their cities. We are an exceptional people. This is what we are. This is what made America great. Perhaps after a decade or more now of war, we have been begun to forget what being good feels like.

Do we even remember September 11th? When we think of those days, the fear and the rage of September 11th, we fail to teach the lessons of that day. But, more importantly, we have completely forgotten the joy, the peace, and the simple kindness to total strangers on 9/12. We stood arm in arm with those who we thought actually were our enemies. We recognized on that day what truly made us American was our brotherhood in a higher purpose. America is great because America is good.

Man, I am really pissed off at everything happening in Washington. It's been happening for years. I am really upset about what's happening on our borders. They are fundamentally transforming the United States of America, and this is something I cautioned while Bush was still in office. I continued to caution we couldn't have two sets of laws, a set of laws for those in power or would be granted special exception, and then another set for others.

I, for one, love immigrants. I believe they renew us, make us stronger through naturalization. Our front door should be made wider by fixing the visa program, so those who want to stay here, those who have a job, those who will make us stronger can stay here. But I also believe, at the same time, we have to close all the windows and the side doors. No country in the world allows this to happen, and no country in the history of the with this kind of a problem has ever survived.

The families down on the borders need to be sent home. And quite honestly, their countries need to be held responsible for it. With that being said, the children – and yes, some of the bad guys that are there, too – instead of shipping them deeper into our nation, we need to gather them together and then we need to gather together and help those American towns and cities that are dealing with this crisis first-hand. The churches are overwhelmed, the public systems are overwhelmed, and our government doesn't seem interested at all in doing anything to make it better. They're just playing politics.

This government believes that with every crisis there's an opportunity to win in politics. I believe every crisis there is an opportunity just beneath the surface. It is not at political opportunity, but rather an American opportunity – one of service and kindness. One that reflects the true meaning of our nation, of what it means to be an American.

My charitable organization, Mercury One, has a goal this week of raising $1 million by this Saturday to help bring shoes and clothing and water and food and teddy bears and soccer balls to these children, who find themselves, through no fault of their own, in the middle of a political hurricane. As of today, we have already raised just over $700,000 from you.These are not corporate donations. These are denotions coming in, nickels, dimes, and dollars. That's a hard road to plow – $1 million coming in in $20 increments. It's even harder when you realize that most of all of my viewers and listeners feel exactly the same way I do: We're pissed off.

Most of us have done everything we can to ensure this wouldn't happen. We asked. We begged. We even marched. We were mocked. We were ridiculed and called racist. My listeners are nothing of the sort. In fact, my listeners and viewers are in a category all by themselves, I believe. They are the people in America that are willing to stand against the wind. They are willing to stand against the tide and be beaten up against the rocks. They will even stand against those who they share political ties with, even if their principles dictate otherwise. These are people who want to be better neighbors. These are people looking for anyone who will put principles over parties to join them with strong backs and strong arms. They are not rich. They are not powerful. They are just Americans. They're people who still believe in doing the right thing. As I said, the average donation is under $20, and many who have nothing left have volunteered their time or volunteered their prayers. They're loving, God-fearing Americans who still believe we are a special place – not because of who is in or who is out of Congress or the White House. But because we are still in charge of our house.

‘We, the people,’ in that big fancy script, doesn't mean anything anymore, I don't think. ‘We the people’ is so overdone. It is almost a joke. But when you get down to it, ‘we the people’ can and do make all the difference in the world. That's what sets us apart. A president or a congress, no matter which side, can't dictate that we need to be good to each other. No one can force you to love your neighbor, and no law called ever change your heart from hate to love. These things come from the free will and the free choice of service and the practice of those higher laws that has always set us apart as a people – those laws of faith, hope and charity.

I would ask: Will you help us change the world? I talked to Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)on Friday. Ted Cruz has to speak in Denver. He's trying to find a way to get a plane to get him down to feed the kids, and then back up to Denver to not miss his speaking engagement. When I called him on Friday and spoke to him, he understood exactly what was going on. He sees it the same way I do.

We are going to fight fiercely, but we are also going to be the only ones standing up, bringing food. It's one thing for the president to feed some people. He's not doing it. It's another for those of us who have been called the haters and the racists to go and try to heal and to hold and to feed. How do you explain that? How does the left possibly explain that?

The truth sets us free. Judge us by the fruit of the tree, the fruit of our labors. You talk a good game all up. You could talk about loving people, caring about people, but judge us by the fruit of our tree. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is going to be there. Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) is going to be there. They all understand we are not allowed to talk about politics.We aren't going to talk about politics. The following Monday, that's when you talk about politics. You go back to Washington and say, ‘I have been there. I'll bring you the stories.’

I'm going to go to places no one's been allowed to go into. It's amazing what happens when you bring a quarter of a million dollars worth of shoes to children. The doors that opens. I'll bring my camera. I will show you what I see, and I will tell you the stories that I have seen –good and bad. But we will love first, then we will argue about policy.

Just maybe we'll have a better seat at the table. Maybe we'll be the ones to call everybody to the table because we are the ones that will know the situation. We'll be the ones who ever actually provided actual compassion – not compassion through tax dollars. I don't know about you, but on April 15th, I have never felt compassionate. I have never felt charitable. But when I actually reach in and do it myself, that's when my heart changes, and that's when the world changes.

If you would like to support us, you can go to MercuryOne.org. You can click on the Children and Family Border Relief Fund. If you don't want to give to that, you can give for the VA. We are also raising money to help our veterans. We are also helping Israel. You can help support the people who are being bombed now in Israel. You can help us build schools and help us build hospitals here in America. You choose. But we'd sure love your help and your support. Go to MercuryOne.org.

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

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.
