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.

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."
