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."

Is your wallet ON FIRE? You can thank Bidenomics for that.

Biden has been touting the alleged success of his economic plan. But why are 61 percent of U.S. consumers living paycheck to paycheck? In Wednesday's Glenn TV episode, Glenn showed you all the ways that the Biden admin has been skewing economic figures in their favor to boost their PR campaign. But one thing is for certain: the Biden admin's reckless spending continues to drive up inflation. You feel this every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car with gas.

What's worse? The Biden admin doesn't even factor in groceries and gas into their inflation rate! Don't be fooled when they boast that they've brought interest rates down. The prices of products the average American consumes every day remain nearly doubled to what it was under the Trump admin.

See for yourself. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the most popular grocery items priced under the Trump admin and the Biden admin.

Cost of 1 Dozen Eggs

Price of 1lb. Ground Beef

Price of 1lb. Chicken

Price of 1 Gallon of Milk

Price of 1 Liter of Soda

Price of 1 Loaf of Bread

The residents of Lahaina are still reeling from enduring the deadliest wildfire in US history. 115 people have been confirmed dead. An estimated three 3,000 homes have been destroyed. Nearly 5,000 people are displaced. Hundreds, if not over a thousand residents are still missing, including many children.

How did such a horrendous tragedy occur? Hawaiian Electric is taking the brunt of the blame, but your blood will begin to boil when you hear of the MANY preventative measures that were NOT taken.

Hawaiian Electric refused to update their aging equipment, even though they knew it posed a severe wildfire threat. Why? Because they did not align with the government's woke climate agenda. Hawaii passed a 2015 law requiring Hawaii’s energy to be 100 percent renewable by 2045—the first U.S. state to make such a requirement. In 2017, Hawaiian Electric claimed that it would fulfill the mandate five years ahead of schedule. The green push from the leftist Hawaiian government disincentivized Hawaiian Electric to comply with the safety standards of its current equipment. This wildfire was absolutely avoidable.

The green push from the leftist Hawaiian government disincentivized Hawaiian Electric to comply with the safety standards.

In Wednesday's Glenn TV special, Glenn laid out ALL of the climate standards that jeopardized Hawaii's fire safety and the poor decisions that resulted in the deadliest wildfire in US history.

To make matters worse, property developers are preying upon the desperation of the Lahaina victims, proposing to buy their decimated properties at a dismal price before the victims have even been allowed to step back onto their land since the fires.

Campaign from JAIL? Here are the TOP 4 takeaways from Glenn's TRUMP interview

President Trump joined Glenn on-air yesterday on the Glenn Beck Program. In their 25 minutes together, Glenn asked Trump the burning questions that the American people want answered from one of the most controversial political figures in American history. Here are the key takeaways from the interview.

1. Will Trump "lock people up" if he becomes President?

When Trump first ran for President in 2020, he said that he wouldn't make any formal arrests, even though he was facing the blatant corruption of Hilary Clinton and the now-disproven Russian collusion conspiracies. Glenn asked Trump if he regrets refusing to hold these people legally responsible who are now using their same corrupt practices to put him in jail.

Trump said:

The answer is, you have no choice because they're doing it to us.

What do you think about Trump's indictments and the possibility of him holding his political opponents legally accountable?

2. Will Trump run a campaign from a jail cell?

The Left seems more determined than ever to prohibit Trump from re-election. They have weaponized both the government and the judicial system to hinder his campaign. If they succeed, is Trump willing and able to run his campaign from jail? Glenn asked Trump this pointed question during their interview.

Trump seemed confident that he will not serve jail time. He responded to Glenn:

I don't think [serving jail time] is ever happening. We have a great case. Every case [made against me] has been a scam.

Trump acknowledged the Deep State is comprised of "sick people" who are willing to do anything to stop his campaign. However, his remarks to Glenn indicated he is confident in the strength of his case to withstand his current onslaught of indictments.

3. A lot of people feel like the republic is over. How can we ensure we have a fair election if the GOP won't do anything?

Trump didn't have a very hopeful answer to this question. The former president remarked how the GOP is "not tough enough," especially when compared to the lengths the Democrats are willing to go to ensure their desired outcome of elections.

Trump said, "The Democrats are dirty payers. They lie, they cheat, what they do is unbelievable with ballots and every conceivable form of cheating." So how can the GOP stand up to the Democrats to ensure a free and fair election? Trump didn't say. But he seemed to have little confidence in election integrity as long as it's run by the Democrats.

4. Have you thought of Vice President Ramaswamy?

Could we have a Vice President Ramaswamy? It's definitely a possibility!

When Glenn asked what Trump thought of Vivek, he answered, "I think he's great. He's a young guy, he's got a lot of talent, he's a very intelligent person, he's got a lot of energy."

Vivek, a frequent guest on the Glenn Beck Program, has been a staunch Trump supporter and defender of Trump-era policies. Is he gunning for the VP role? If so, it seems to be working!
