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.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

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."
