Police Officers are Being Targeted, Executed and Assassinated

Our prayers are with police officers.

Again, yesterday, we lost another police officer. The one in Kansas City. Today, two cops were targeted in New York. These are assassinations. How many people have to die? How many people have to die?

You know, I said years ago, "1968 is coming, and if you want to fully repeat history, all that is lacking is the assassinations." And here they are. These officers are being targeted, executed, assassinated. Can we just think here for a minute about the families? And not the ones who have died, but the families who today, at the breakfast table, had to say goodbye to their husband or their mother or their child.

Imagine what those children are hearing on the playgrounds. You know they're hearing it on the playgrounds. You know they're seeing it on the news. You know they're hearing the whispered tension between mom and dad. And you know mom and dad have said to them, "Don't worry."

Imagine what all of the children of all of our police officers are going through every night. Imagine the nightmares that they are having, that their dad is not coming home tonight. And this is only gonna get worse.

Imagine the tension in the homes. Imagine the tension -- you know cops are just -- most of them are just like military. They're not going to leave their brethren out there. They're watching their backs. They want to be their for their brothers. And imagine the wives who are saying, "You got to quit, honey. You got to quit."

"I can't quit, honey. If I quit, who is going to stand the line?"

And the fathers who have to look at their children, hearing their wife beg them, "Please, retire, get out, do something else." Looking at their children who are trying to hide their fear that they're not going to see dad and then going out on the streets and people treating them like garbage. Turning on television and seeing the president of the United States say what he said. Seeing Hillary Clinton at the DNC hold up a guy who the left has held up as a hero, when all of the cops have been cleared of any wrongdoing. And they're bringing mom in to speak at the DNC?

What do you feel like if you're a cop today? What do you feel like if you're a spouse of a cop?

I know my children --- and I don't face any of this --- I know my children: "Dad, stop. Stop doing it. Stop." I don't face this. These guys are being assassinated. They really, honestly don't know . . . they're walking down the street, they get out of their car, they go to buy a cup of coffee, they go to stop somebody, they're called for assistance. We don't have anybody really, truly leading the charge on this.

It's despicable what our president is doing. And, quite honestly, it's despicable what the media is doing. Are there problems in the black communities? Are there problems in the white communities? Yes. Are there problems in government and media? Yes. Are there problems in the police department? Yes. But is nobody in the media willing to stand up and say, "We can't have any kind of conversation, no conversation if you can't say, enough with the violence?

Can you imagine if the Tea Party Tea Party would have said any of the stuff that Black Lives Matter has said. The leaders of it. Can you imagine if we would have said just one line that has been said by the Black Panthers, one line that was said by Louis Farrakhan? Can you imagine? And then if the Koch brothers would have funded that movement, where the leaders were saying that thing, like George Soros has funded Black Lives Matter. Can you imagine one police officer being killed? One. Like white on rice.

Now, this has nothing to do with the double standard of politics; this has everything to do with the double standard of humanity. Where is your humanity? You people in the media, you politicians, shame on you. These are the guys that protect your ass every day. These are the guys that will get shot before you get shot. And you don't have the balls to stand up and say, "This is obscene?"

Shame on you.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
