Are America's leaders enabling chaos in Israel and the border?

There is a leader vacuum that is evident in every corner of America and the entire world, and you can see it manifesting itself in our news stories.

I want to start with Israel today. Yesterday we showed you some of the most gruesome pictures I have ever seen. They were shocking, the truth of what the enemies of mankind, the radical Islamists, are capable of. Now, their direct enemy, the enemy of truth, Hamas, is once again calling for the extermination of corrupt Jews. Look at this.

How do you possibly expect someone to sit down at a peace table where they are saying, “We will exterminate every single one of you” and then back it up with their Scriptures? It’s insanity.

A Hamas rocket misfired yesterday, landing in a hospital in Gaza, killing nine children. Who did Hamas say did it? They said Israel did. Israel’s cabinet is now warning that they are seeing the signs of the beginning of another Holocaust, but instead of believing that that is even possible, of course it is, listen to the words of the leaders. It’s like read Mein Kampf. How did you miss this?

It’s because you don’t want to look at that. The world chooses to believe terrorists. The world chooses to believe that they can’t possibly be that horrible. The Associated Press looked more like Gaza propaganda today. Earlier today this is what they said: “As much of world watches Gaza war in horror, members of Congress fall over each other to support Israel.” Excuse me? Did you see what we just played for you? That was Hamas.

They went on. The spin continued. They said the violence was Israel’s fault, “Senior Palestinian official offers 24 hour truce in Gaza, says he’s also speaking for Hamas.” Really? More, “A spokesman brushed aside the offer, saying until Israel hears from Hamas directly, it’s not serious.” Well, of course it’s not serious. The Associated Press views Hamas as the victim who just wants to give peace a chance, but they will dismiss the words that I just played for you, and they will conclude that it’s just these darn Israelis that just can’t, you know, can’t get along with everybody.

This Sunday, TheBlaze was one of the first to report through Sharona Schwartz, our reporter in Israel, she reported on the truth on Hamas. She showed the mega-attack that was being plotted and planned through the Gaza terror tunnels that was stopped.

And what the plan was is they were going to, Hamas was going to dress as Israeli soldiers, which, by the way, is against the Geneva Convention, and they had all of these uniforms that they had either stolen or had made. And they were going to go through the terror tunnels, and they were going to kidnap as many Jews as possible.

Leaders of the world are too afraid, too cowardice, or too bought and sold, they don’t even know who they are anymore, and they won’t stand boldly in the truth. Instead, we get John Kerry. Now, John Kerry, I don’t mean to be divisive here, you know how I feel about him, but this peace deal that he was offering to Israel was laughed off by everyone in the region, including the Palestinian Authority.

He has done something that nobody else has been able to do since the time of Abraham, and that is unite Jew and Arab and Palestinian alike, everybody together, unite them laughing at him. I don’t think that’s ever happened. Hamas was the only one who benefited from this offer, and even the Egyptians, they were mocking him openly. That’s leadership? And then we have something even worse, the people like the Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. Her father has got to be horrified by this. Her stance has just come out in a memo on Israel.

Her stance was to be determined by how much financial opportunity there is, so who’s going to give me more cash? Are the Jews going to give me more cash, the Palestinians, who? Because I’ll determine it largely on the level of support. It is disgusting. It is frustrating. It is un-American. It is un-American. I don’t know who we are anymore because we have lost our why. Why are we even a nation anymore?

The debate on illegal immigration, everybody’s rushing in to find a quick solution, let’s find a solution, got to find a solution. Could we just ask people, “Why are you here?” It’s a simple question. Ask them that simple question, “Why are you coming here?” If you do, you’ll find out because most will say Obama will take care of us. Those are quotes, “Obama will take care of us. He will grant us amnesty.”

Yesterday, illegal immigrants protested outside of the White House. If you are not afraid, if you are here illegally, and you’re protesting in front of the White House, and you notice, nobody’s face is being blurred here. Really? You’re completely unafraid of the law. There is no justice. It’s completely broken down.

A leader in Washington would tell people, “Stop coming.” We love you, we have compassion, we will find those who are really, truly needing asylum, but that’s it, stop coming here. It’s what I did on this network, but it’s what the president needs to do on every network. And because he doesn’t, there’s a vacuum, and people now are taking matters into their own hands.

I’m warning you, when justice fails, vengeance grows if we don’t grow mercy, and this is the end. We now have armed militias moving across Texas. This is different than the Minutemen. The Minutemen were unarmed and simply reporting illegal crossings. Now, I’m sure that most people in this militia have good intentions. Well, I don’t know, I don’t know. They’re being described as antigovernment, but I’m described as antigovernment, so I don’t know.

I know that if you are carrying guns down on the border, it’s not going to end well and especially if it is driven by anger. Even if it is righteous anger, it’s a recipe for disaster.

The world needs leaders, and as our founders proved, you don’t have to be some fancy CEO at the top of an organizational chart to lead. Anybody can do it. Anyone can do it. Perhaps it’s you.

Tonight, our guest is going to try to shore that up because the next great leader might just be you.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
