Harry Reid has officially lost it: Claims ‘the border is secure’

Whether you agree with Pat that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is the “worst living human being on the planet” or Stu that he is not just senile or evil but “evnile,” there is no question Reid’s behavior has become increasingly erratic. His most recent claims about the border seem to further solidify the fear that Reid may be losing it.

“I'm concerned for our country. There is something wrong with the man. There is something deeply wrong with the man that goes way beyond politics,” Glenn said. “No man can actually get away with saying this that doesn't need serious psychological examination.”

After the Senate Democrats’ weekly policy lunch on Tuesday, which included a briefing from Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NV), Reid steadfastly declared the southern border is “secure.”

“The border is secure,” Reid said. “[Sen.] Martin Heinrich talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”

According to The Hill, Reid then added Congress should worry less about securing the border and more on approving President Obama’s $3.7 billion request to deal with the current immigration crisis.

Glenn is not the only one questioning Reid’s mental state. As TheBlaze reported, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer debated the topic during an appearance on Fox News.

“When you hear Harry Reid saying the border is secure, you got to wonder, you know, whether he’s on his medication or not,” Krauthammer said. “That is so detached from reality.”

Reid’s comments follow those of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who visited a Border Patrol facility housing illegal immigrants last month.

During a press conference in Brownsville, Texas, Pelosi called the recent influx of Central Americans across the U.S. border an “opportunity” rather than a “crisis” before adding that wished she could take some of the 60,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children home with her.

“I wish I could take all those children home with me,” Pelosi said.

Below are Pelosi’s full remarks (applicable video begins around the 6-minute mark):

“Nancy Pelosi has come out and said she wishes that she could take all of the immigrant children home with her. I invite her to do so,” Glenn said. “She's got more than enough money to adopt all kinds of children. She could set up her own shelter.”

In fact, Glenn believes all the politicians who have said the bussing of these illegal immigrants to cities around the U.S. is no big deal should have to open up their own communities to these individuals.

“I want all of these illegal immigrants shipped right directly to [Rep.] John Lewis' (D-GA) home district. I want them all going to San Francisco… I want them all to go to Boston,” Glenn said. “Ship every single one of them. Because liberals [apparently] understand some things that conservatives don't. Liberals [think] that they can make this work. That this isn't going to affect your community in any negative way. ‘It is a blessing’… The minute we start shipping these people to their towns is the minute they will all have a problem.”

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
