Chris Kyle's killer found guilt - here's how Glenn reacted to the verdict

Eddie Ray Routh was found guilty Tuesday night of capital murder last night in the killing of 'American Sniper' Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. He will spend the rest of his life in prison. After reading the news, Glenn wondered if the sentence truly fit the crime.

Last night, as I was going to bed, my wife said to me, there's a verdict in the "American Sniper" trial. I held my breath for a second, waiting to hear what that might be, no longer really believing that justice in America exists. Guilty. Guilty. However, life in prison without parole may not be enough for Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield's killer, but at least it's not the tragedy of justice we saw go to the Kyle family in the Jesse Ventura case. Last night I wrote on Facebook that I was a little tired and a little grumpy and maybe I shouldn't be thinking out loud, but I want to know what the real motive of the killing really was. If he's insane, he should be hospitalized, not imprisoned, but I don't believe he suffered any kind of PTSD. He didn't see any action at all, and in fact, if he has PTSD, I have watched two seasons of the "Walking Dead". I might have it too. So why is it that he killed these guys?

The president could come out and say maybe it was workplace violence. I would just like the news occasionally to make sense and to tell us really what is happening in the world. I know that Hillary Clinton could come out and say what difference does it make. We've got two people dead now. What difference does it make if he was suffering from PTSD or maybe he was just a guy walking down the street that just decided to go kill some Americans. What difference does it make?

Maybe the president could come out and explain that Chris and Chad were just some random folks that were killed. I don't know what the jury knows. I accept their verdict. I have a feeling he's not going to do well in prison. I just wish somebody cared enough about our soldiers and their families and the truth to see that justice is really served and answers are finally had. Truth and justice used to be the American way. I'm not holding my breath. I know the president just hates to comment on local stories. I know he hates to comment on local shootings, you know, before a verdict comes out, but now that it's out, maybe, just maybe, the president could call the wife of one of America's greatest warriors and offer some sort of heartfelt thanks on behalf of a grateful nation. Maybe he could do that.

My guess is he's too busy today apologizing for something Americans have done, apologizing to the Muslim world, maybe he's going took busy today condemning Christians. I know he's got a full schedule of betraying Israel. He also has to take over the Internet sometime today, but maybe on the back nine at some point, he could pop a text message her way. After all, he did insist that he had his own private BlackBerry that we all spent a fortune securing, so he could do things like that.

One other note on this: Nobody has talked about the family of the killer either, and if we do admire the Amish and the way they handled things, we should also be praying for the family of the killer and thinking about them today, for the hell that they have gone through and pray for their healing as well. No one is left untouched by this awful thing called war that I don't even know what it's about anymore.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
