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.

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.
