Terrifying new report suggests that ISIS has forces just south of the United States

On Tuesday, TheBlaze reported on an Islamic State camp in Mexico just miles from the United States border. That report was made possible due to the work of Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog organization. According to the group, this camp is providing reconnoissance and thwarting efforts by law enforcement to protect the border. On Wednesday's 'Glenn Beck Program', Chris Farrell, Director of Investigations at Judicial Watch, joined the program to discuss the bombshell of a story.

Glenn: All right, I want to go to Chris Farrell. He’s the Director of Investigations at Judicial Watch. He is the guy which we worked with to post the article yesterday. These guys have been on this for a long, long, long time. They have confirmed with sources in Mexico that ISIS has established a base in Mexico just a few miles from the United States border. Chris, this is truly stunning, and I don’t hear the world—I don’t hear anybody in America really getting all up in arms about this.

Chris: I agree with you, Glenn. It’s important information, and it comes to us from two incredibly reliable sources that we’ve relied upon now for years, high quality reporting. One is a Mexican army field grade officer. The other is a Mexican federal police inspector, so that’s sort of the gravity or the depth of the source reporting that we have. And they engaged in a joint operation this past late Friday night into early Saturday morning in a neighborhood of Juarez called Anapra, which is kind of on the western edge of Juarez, with an effort to get at an ISIS operational element or cell that’s operating in Anapra. In the course of that, they recovered documents and other materials, and they made us aware of that. It’s a grave threat to the country, and no one should be surprised by it.

Glenn: Talk about the materials that you found, because you found in two different languages plans of one of our forts.

Chris: Fort Bliss, which is right in El Paso, Texas directly across from Juarez, it’s a sprawling—it’s a huge post. It’s home of the army’s First Army Division, the largest division in the army. They found plans of Fort Bliss among those documents, documents in both Arabic and Urdu. According to our sources, this cell, this operational element of ISIS that’s using the southern border or the region near El Paso to conduct reconnaissance in the United States, they’re looking at universities in the region.

Glenn: Okay, so let’s go over the reconnaissance because there’s a couple things going on. One, up in the mountains by New Mexico right on our border in New Mexico, we believe that ISIS is actually—they have scouts up there scouting to bring terrorists and some sort of equipment possibly across our border, and they’re in the New Mexico mountains. Is that correct?

Chris: That is correct. In fact, yesterday afternoon after we broke our story, I received contact from two other law enforcement officials who came back and confirmed to me our reporting was accurate and in fact there was grave concern about these spotters in the mountains to the northwest of El Paso and the fact that that spotting activity which covers border crossing, they can sort of be a very troublesome, very difficult problem for them because it’s a technique that precludes them from intercepting folks crossing the border.

Glenn: Explain that.

Chris: Well, you have spotters who are sitting on these mountainsides looking south, and they direct and guide border crossing operations coming into the United States. So, any efforts on the part of law enforcement to interdict their movement north, they’re either told to stop, change routes, delay, and so it thwarts our law enforcement efforts. And these spotters are sitting in these mountains. They’re armed. They have solar panels to recharge their radios and their phones, and they stay up there for weeks on end. In fact, about five, six years ago, I took Congressman Steve King to Arizona and showed him spotter locations in Arizona that already exist. They’re using the same technique but just one state over. This is old hat. This is stuff they’ve been doing for years.

Glenn: Okay, let’s go to they’re looking at the universities, regional universities, the White Sands missile range, government facilities, electrical power facilities. Why do we believe these things?

Chris: This is the information again from our Mexican intelligence and law enforcement officials telling us this is part of their take from the activities just this past weekend.

Glenn: When did you find out this information?

Chris: I started receiving information immediately very late Friday night that this activity was ongoing, and we came back and tried to sort of re-task or refocus additional questions because we had additional sort of burst of info to us that frankly just lead to more questions. It was so provocative. It was so compelling, the information we got, and so there was a couple of extra rounds of followup.

We’ve spent weeks in that region. I personally have spent weeks and weeks in the El Paso area interviewing law enforcement folks, ordinary civilians who live along in that area, and so this is an ongoing thing for us. We have a great deal of knowledge and depth with our own sensitive reporting network, and so based on the first information we got, we were compelled to go back and dig. We had to get more information, at the same time respecting the safety and security of our sources. We’re not going to get our sources killed. And so we have to be very careful.

Glenn: Here’s why I ask that question. You had this information on Friday. You release it this week. Now, I haven’t been watching the news all day, except for TheBlaze, but I’ve been on the different sites and been reading. I don’t see this burning up Facebook. I don’t see this burning up ABC, NBC. This is a stunning revelation. Have you at least been contacted by the federal government? Has anybody, Homeland Security, anybody contacted you and said, “Okay wait, what do you know?”

Chris: Yes, yes, they have. In fact, like I said, I got two phone calls late yesterday afternoon from law enforcement agencies seeking additional information and frankly confirming to us that our reporting was right on the money. There were techniques and tactics being used that law enforcement folks in that region were looking, that they were aware of, that they wanted more details on.

Glenn: Go ahead.

Chris: I was going to say they expressed very grave concern over the spotter issue we discussed a couple of moments ago.

Glenn: Okay. Do you have any idea how many people we might be talking about, how long they’ve been there?

Chris: I do not have a firm number on people. I know it’s several, but I can’t give you a hard number because there’s actually, there’s two cells in the area. There’s the one in Anapra which is just to the west of Juarez, and then there’s another one in Palomas which is across the border from Columbus and Deming, New Mexico. So, these two elements, in fact, they move back and forth between those two cities, those two towns. But they use that incredibly porous southern border to get into the United States.

Glenn: Chris, last question, the drug cartels are involved in this, right?

Chris: Absolutely. The coyotes who work for the cartels are facilitating this movement. It’s business for them. It’s money.

Glenn: Okay, thank you very much, Chris. I appreciate it. Pray for our border agents. We pray every night on our knees that those that wish to destroy the Constitution and wish to destroy the United States, whether they are here or abroad, that they are somehow or another miraculously thwarted and God doesn’t turn his face from us.

I will tell you this is extraordinarily concerning. This week, ISIS sent a message in English to the English-speaking peoples of the world, now’s the time to hit America. They are looking for another 9/11 here in America. Now, we find out they’ve been bringing people across our border because we’ve done nothing on our southern border.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
