How do you vet refugees? Glenn shares detailed plans for The Nazarene Fund

The Obama administration says it's going to take 12 to 18 months to vet Syrian refugees --- after they enter the country. Really? There's not a way to vet refugees before to ensure they're not terrorists bent on killing us? Yes, of course there is, and it's a simple solution: Take the government out of the equation.

Thanks to the generosity of Glenn's listeners, the Nazarene Fund has raised more than $12 million dollars --- $2 million above goal --- to save Christians in the Middle East. Just recently, $1.5 million of those funds was wired to Europe to begin the process.

Glenn shared on radio today how his team will work with long-standing pastors and priests in Iraq and Syria to thoroughly vet people and relocate them to safe-haven countries.

"The problem with the refugees is we just don't know who is coming in," Glenn said. "We'll have absolutely no idea who is coming in, until they get here."

He went on to describe how the president has said we're going to take 85,000 refugees in 2016 --- and State Department says it takes 12 to 18 months to vet people entering under these circumstances.

That being said, there actually is a way to effectively vet asylum-seeking Christians, Glenn went on to explain.

"It's really quite simple," Glenn said. "We go to the church in the area in Iraq or in Syria, and we go find the parish priest or the pastor, and we say, 'Who is in the most trouble?'"

Working with local parishioners, Glenn described how his team would be able to distinguish between families who were actually chased out of their home or had their business burned down because they were Christian and the pretenders.

"We're relying on the pastors or the priests to tell us. We're not taking anybody who, well, they, you know, showed up," Glenn said.

The key is relying on long-standing, trusted local resources.

Glenn went on to break down how the funds --- donated by 120,000 listeners, many of them churches doing bake sales --- will be used.

"Each family takes about $20,000," he said. "That's for the vetting. That's for the airfare. That is for getting their life in order. That's to set them up. That's to give them nine months of foreign language class."

He continued.

"So we set them up, we set them up in a community, a church so they have a fallback. They have some money for their apartment. We pay for their apartment for a little while. We try to set them up with a job," Glenn said. "I can guarantee you this is not what the federal government is doing. I can guarantee you, this is not what the UN is doing."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
