Jeffy’s mother-in-law has mob experience

Not the organized mob (that we know of), but rather angry mobs. While discussing the fruitlessness of violent mob tactics, Jeffy revealed his mother-in-law was the victim of an angry mob after the MLK assassination, describing a horrifying subway ride that resulted in a severe beating just because she was white.

GLENN: Okay. Let's talk a little bit about the riots.

PAT: They're blocking bridges. They're stopping people from going to work. This is starting to spread all over the country. Second night of protests.

GLENN: It's all right. This is Occupy Wall Street 2.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: That's all this is. They think they have a chance. America is not going to be with these radicals. They're not going to do it.

PAT: I hope that's true.

GLENN: It is.

PAT: I hope that the people who are protesting realize that this time, there's almost — there's bipartisan support here. There's biracial support here.

GLENN: It's important to say, we don't know what happened in the grand jury room.

PAT: They said it a hundred times yesterday.

GLENN: We don't know what happened in the grand jury room, and so you know, I don't know what they were instructed that they had to pay attention to. I don't know what the evidence was. I wasn't there. But that's — what I said yesterday is I would like to see — I mean, we need transparency here. They need to say — to the to the American people, what — why the grand jury didn't think this was wrong.

PAT: And they need to do that because we saw what happened with our own eyes.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: So —

GLENN: So it's they got it wrong and the system needs to be fixed or we don't know something that they know. Either way, we need to know that. When it comes to Michael Brown, we know that there were black eyewitnesses that did not come out in front of the American people because they were afraid for their own life and protection. But they went and they testified that, yes, the cop was right. And so that's what really set the Michael Brown thing up, was the testimony of African-Americans who went into the grand jury and said, no, Michael Brown was trying to harm the police officer. It was self-defense and it was — it was a righteous shooting. That wasn't — they weren't out in front of the press because they were afraid. But at least we know that. Here, we don't have anything but the videotape that shows this — these cops looking like they're out of control. So it's important, but you'll never get this, because de Blasio wants this kind of action on the street. So you're never going to get this. But it's important for the American people to see what happened. How was justice served in this? Tell us why that decision was made. It's important.

PAT: I think it is. You know, and here's the case where we agree with the sentiment. It looks to us to be a miscarriage of justice. But there's a right way to go about it and a wrong way to go about it and I think to punish commuters on their way to or from work is the wrong work.

GLENN: It's the wrong way.

PAT: It's just going piss people off.

GLENN: When you go back and look at the riots, the workers' world riots in the 1930s and you will see this is exactly the same kind of stuff with FDR. They set Oakland on fire. They set several cities on fire. They were beating people in the streets. I mean, it was bad. This has happened before.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh, when you talk about knowing your family history and what happened, over Thanksgiving I learned something new about my mother-in-law that I never knew before. She was here fresh in the United States from Ecuador in New York City on a subway the day of Martin Luther King —

GLENN: Hold on.

PAT: There's an important element here.

GLENN: Please tell me that somehow or another your family members here illegally and there's someway we can get you deported.

JEFFY: So anyway, the night that Martin Luther King was assassinated, she's on a subway and she was beaten almost to death for being — looking white. And the violence was just there. And a person who tried to break it up was eventually stabbed by this crowd and that was just for being on the subway and looking white.

PAT: Did he survive?

JEFFY: No, I don't think he did. She wasn't sure. She said she didn't think he didn't make it and she almost didn't make it. But at first —

GLENN: It meant a lot to her that somebody saved her life and died for her.

PAT: That's the nice way to turn this on —

GLENN: Right.

PAT: On the Jeffy clan.

GLENN: Meant so much she didn't even check to see if the guy lived.

PAT: Here he is making —

(overlapping speakers).

JEFFY: No, no.

GLENN: You're right. You're right. Those happen so rarely.

PAT: They happen so rarely.

GLENN: I didn't mean to — go ahead.

PAT: Go ahead.

GLENN: That is your moment to shine.

JEFFY: We're long gone done now.

GLENN: No, go ahead. Somebody in your family that people wanted to beat to death. What a surprise.

(laughing).

JEFFY: She wasn't part of my family then. I went out looking for people like that.

GLENN: They knew. Your daughter is going to marry somebody in the future and I know it and I got to beat you to death. So that's amazing. That's amazing.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

JEFFY: But it's just random. Doesn't matter. So that's when you stop traffic, you make people mad.

PAT: And it doesn't help the cause.

JEFFY: It doesn't help anything.

GLENN: This is what happens — honestly, this is the kind of stuff that happened with Gandhi.

PAT: And you've said it a million times, this is why MLK won because it was peaceful.

GLENN: And it's why Gandhi won. It's important to understand, Gandhi did not win because he was doing a hunger strike against England or against the oppressors. He didn't. He did a hunger strike on his own people. You want violence? You want to beat people in the streets? You want to bring a gun? You want to burn something down? I'm not with you. And he was so beloved. He said I will starve to death — I will not eat. I will starve to death before I will stand with you. And if you decide to disarm, if you decide to be peaceful, I'll eat. I'll have water. But until that time, no. Now, where is Jessie Jackson? Where is Al Sharpton? Can you imagine if anybody on that side would have so much credibility that they would stand and up say, until you come to the table, I will not eat. Not preaching — Gandhi was not preaching to the man. He was preaching to the people on the streets. That's the difference. That's the difference.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
