Is the President safe? New revelations on Secret Service screw-up raises red flags

The Washington Post reported new details on the man who jumped the fence and rushed the White House earlier this month. It turns out he made it much further into the building than was originally reported. Omar Gonzalez was able to enter through an unlocked door and get all the way to the East Room before being detained by Secret Service. Couple this with revelations earlier this week regarding shots fired at the White House in 2011, and Glenn was left wondering just how safe the President really is.

"Don't worry, in the East Room, it's only where the president does all his press conferences," Glenn joked. "And that room just has national treasures in it. I wouldn't worry about it. So there's the president. There's the president's family. And, of course, there's national treasures, but I wouldn't worry about it"

Glenn's sarcasm really addressed a fundamental problem regarding presidential security in the modern world. These days, it's easy to smuggle an explosive device in something as small and portable as a backpack. What would have happened if Gonzalez had been carrying more than a knife?

"The other thing that's pretty disturbing is just being continually lied to," Pat said. "On this story, for instance. They told us the guy barely got through the door and they apprehended him."

The Washington Post also reported that the alarm had been muted at the request of the ushers.

"We don't need to get into all the details. We don't need people to know all these details. This is still under investigation. So we don't need to know that," Glenn joked.

"This guy was in the White House, and we didn't shoot him. Amazing," he added.

So what do we do now?

"Our Secret Service, I have to tell you, I'm President of the United States, before I take office, I have a long talk with the new Treasury Secretary and say, 'Look, here's the deal, dude, you and I are going to be doing a lot of things, but you and I are going to need the best Secret Service agents ever. You get this cleaned up because the entire government is at stake.'"

"Our system is at risk here and it seems to me they're having too many cocaine and hooker parties at the Secret Service. I want the best men. I want the most moral men. I want the most decent men. I want men -- and I hate to say this, I want men who are so close to being the best they can be that the spirit will motivate them. That they will -- yes, I am saying it, that they will have and they will obey those crazy hallucinations that religious people sometimes have, I like to call them promptings. They will listen to the spirit and they are worthy of hearing the spirit because we're dealing with the country. We're not just dealing with the first family's life. The President of the United States has no right to put himself in dangerous situations. He has no right to do that. There's way too much at stake. Can you imagine if this president was killed? Can you imagine what it would do to the country right now?"

"Our nation is at stake. The president's life is in danger, and I have been saying this since we were at CNN. Warning, this guy gets in and he's not everything he's promised, everyone will have a reason...By the way, just look it up. If you'll look up who the ones are that take on presidents of the United States in history, it has been radical, revolutionary, communists, leftists, and Palestinian supporters. So don't tell me about the radical right. Could it be? Yes. Could it be a racist? Yes. But odds are it is a radical revolutionary, communist, socialist, Palestinian supporter. Look it up. They are the angriest.""

"Every single time. Look it up. I have. Because I actually care about the president's life. I may not agree with him, but he's the President of the United States of America. His family. Three years ago, they shot at the White House. The Secret Service received phone calls from people saying, 'I see a guy with a gun firing at the White House.' They dismissed it. They found the bullet hole. Now, we find out about this three years later. What the hell is going on? Americans need to pay attention. We need to be on the front lines of making sure this president is safe."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
