Mickey Mouse Operation: Why Didn't the FBI Heed Disney's Warning?

Perhaps the biggest tragedy of the Orlando terrorist attack is that it could have been stopped. As usual, the warning signs were ignored.

"Did you hear that the Mouse Police had warned the FBI about the shooter? You know, he had been casing several places, including [Pulse], but he also was casing Disney. Now, Disney, can you imagine the security protocols that Disney has to make sure none of this has happened since 2001," Glenn asked. "I mean, you go in and you start shooting people at Disney World or Disneyland, and it's a totally different world. And they know it. So Disney police are good."

Yet even an April warning from Disney --- which followed previous warnings from the shooter's co-workers --- failed to alarm FBI officials enough to detain Mateen and stop the attack at Pulse.

"We have a problem with the FBI, and I don't think it's the local guys, I really don't. I think there has been a management change," Glenn said.

The FBI's report on the complaints against Mateen concluded that the people reporting on him were bigots and racists.

"So they did their investigation on him and came out and said, 'You know what, I'm sorry you have to deal with all these racists at work.' I personally think that this administration comes into it with that bias."

Has the Obama administration given a top-down order and tied the hands of FBI agents on the ground?

"You can't look at certain things, you can't say certain things, you can't be trained about certain things on Islam, I think there is such a bias against the people, in favor of a possible extremist," Glenn speculated.

The Obama administration has shown again and again they protect the rights of extremists and ideologists over regular American citizens.

"They're coming in with a bias against people who are calling and saying, "Hey, I think there's something suspicious," Glenn said.

"The problem with this whole conversation is we're not talking about what really matters: A, we've moved past the people who are still having surgery, like Tony, who is still in the, 'I got to fight. I got to live. I love my family, and God's got a plan for me' mode. We just blew by all of that, and we went to a narrative of, 'Is this anti-gay?'"

The shooter reportedly said 'Allahu Akbar' while carrying out the attack. The shooter reportedly called 911 during the attack and said, 'This is dedicated to ISIS.' The shooter reportedly posted to Facebook the day of the attack, pledging allegiance to the leader of ISIS and vowing more attacks.

"We're not really even having that conversation. We are actually talking about taking the rights away from law-abiding citizens. Donald Trump, 'our champion,' is saying that he's going to talk to the NRA and the NRA has got to compromise on the no-fly list," Glenn said.

The real conversation we should be having is about Islamic extremists --- and they're devotion to killing anyone that doesn't agree with them. Because it is about Islam.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
