GriffinGate: Rest Easy, America, the Secret Service Is 'On It'

Jumping the fence at the White House? It happens. Walking through the president's front door? Whatever. Attending a state dinner uninvited? No problem. Bad art by a bad comedienne? Oh, no you didn't.

Alerted to the threat of attempted art by Kathy Griffin, the Secret Service tweeted this hard-hitting response:

"On it? On what? You can't even keep people out of the White House! How many people have busted into the White House with multiple administrations?" Doc Thompson asked Wednesday, filling in for Glenn on radio.

Kathy Griffin's heinous beheading stunt was in poor taste, not funny and void of intellectual creativity --- but a threat? No so much.

"The Secret Service, like most government agencies, has been a colossal failure. This is not a threat, folks. It's not," Doc said.

DOC: This was not a threat. For all the people saying that Secret Service has to be involved and contact Secret Service -- honestly, did you really think this is a threat?

BRAD: Probably not. But the Secret Service, they've already tweeted out that they've had to open up an investigation because they look at all threats.

DOC: Right. And that's fine. But this is what the Secret Service tweeted out after this -- they put -- and they didn't specifically mention Kathy Griffin or this picture link. It's just a bunch of people were going, hey, Secret Service. Hey, Secret Service. So they tweeted out, on it.

On it? On what? You can't even keep people out of the White House.

KRIS: Well, that's true.

DOC: How many people have busted into the White House with multiple administrations? They scale the fence. They open the front door. The Salehis attend a state dinner, for Pete's sake. They've got Secret Service agents picking up whores and doing blow in South America. And this is want just one case. Case after case after case of failures at the Secret Service, and you're on it? Well, I'm glad you're on a piece of art that was a bad joke. How about getting on the Secret Service agents to make sure that people aren't breaking into the White House?

BRAD: There's that, yeah.

DOC: We think we can take care of this one. It's a picture.

KRIS: Is that what it is?

DOC: I think so. We can take care of it or whatever. The Secret Service like most government agencies has been a colossal failure. This is not a threat, folks. It's not. And, by the way, I don't know why it's illegal -- maybe inappropriate -- but illegal to offer some sort of threat to the president anyway. I mean, if you're doing humor, satire or whatever, it certainly shouldn't be, even if it's not funny and even if it's inappropriate.

BRAD: Wouldn't they say that threats made against Secret Service protectees receive the highest priority of all of our investigations. #Protectionneverrests.

DOC: So you were on duty when the people -- you weren't resting?

BRAD: We weren't asleep. We were observing.

DOC: Wow. It is a colossal failure.

KRIS: I love the hashtag. That's a good hashtag.

DOC: Which one? Oh, protection never rests. Okay. Yeah. Secret Service. They said, on it. Secret Service has a robust protective intelligence division that monitors open source reporting and social media to evaluate threats.

So let me clarify. Let me clarify just a second. They have a division that monitors open source reporting and social media to evaluate threats. Meaning, while the guys were doing hookers and blow in South America, while people, multiple people scaling fences, running into the White House and all around the grounds, there were people going, "Hey, Hal, I got a tweet here. Guy calls the president an A-hole. You think this could be a threat?" I don't know. Hang on. Janet, come here. Can you look at this? He used three exclamations. It is more more than two. Maybe we should screen grab this. And, meanwhile, the guy is like, hello, you home? Obama? You here? Barry?

KRIS: He just opens the door. He doesn't even knock. This is the people's house. Let me get in there.

DOC: I'm going to make myself a sammich or something. This is a fail. If this is your concern, meanwhile, people are on the White House grounds, you're doing it wrong.

KRIS: Yeah. You forgot about the mystery shot at the White House. Somebody hot at the White House and it was only found because they were doing a sweep. And they're like, what's this? It looks like a bullet hole.

DOC: Hey, Bob, there's a hole right here. Was that here?

KRIS: Exactly. How long has that been here? Yes, that's the historic gunshot of 1915. Woodrow Wilson was president then.

BRAD: Of George Washington.

DOC: It was a different time. We just left it there for novelty's sake. Little sign pointing to it. Tells the story on the wall.

BRAD: You'll hear about it on the tour.

KRIS: Right. Yeah, they did. They found a bullet hole in one of the windows. Nobody ever knew.

BRAD: Hopefully it's bulletproof glass.

DOC: Now, I think they've actually replaced it and done some of that. They had to go through and retrofit this stuff.

KRIS: We should take that bulletproof glass.

DOC: Nah, nah. No, we've never had a problem with it. What's that hole? Oh, apparently, we've had had a problem with it. Colossal failure.

Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

COMING SATURDAY: The REAL Extremism Is NOT ‘Conservative’ | Benjamin Teitelbaum | Ep 102

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century." He writes about it in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent."
