Glenn Reacts to Horrific Tragedy in TX and Driver Being Charged: 'Hope He's Got Hangin' Judge'

In what appears to be a horrific and deadly case of human trafficking, at least nine people have died after being discovered in a sweltering semi-trailer truck parked at Walmart. Dozens more were taken to the hospital. The driver of the truck has been arrested and will likely face both federal and state charges.

"Hope he's got a hanging judge. Hope he's got a good ol' Texan that will teach him a thing or two about taking life lightly," Glenn said Monday on radio.

It's decision time in America --- either we have a border or we don't.

"This sanctuary city thing is a lure, and brings lots of money into people who will do this kind of thing with an empty semi. So which is it going to be? Are we going to incentivize those people, which will lead to more death and destruction or are we going to say we have a border, take it seriously?" Glenn asked.

GLENN: So glad that you have tuned in. There is a horrible tragedy that happened in San Ontonio this weekend. A semi tractor-trailer was found, and it was full of illegals. How many were dead?

PAT: Nine.

GLENN: We think there were probably 100 in there because some ran out as soon as they opened the doors. 17 are in the hospital. Nine are dead. And I have to tell you. The truck driver should get the death penalty. I really believe we need to send a very strong message to people who are acting as coyotes. You get the death penalty, man. If you are caught, and you are transporting people like cattle, and anyone dies --

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Death penalty. This is horrible. This happens -- you don't understand. Can you imagine how hot that truck was? 100-degree temperatures.

PAT: With dozens and dozens of people in it.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: And over 100?

JEFFY: The footage was showing cars coming earlier and picking up some humans and driving away.

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: So then we had the nine now dead, and the 17 or so in the hospital and I think they had others that they picked up that were not in the hospital. So we're just guessing; right? There's 40 or 50 that we have right now. Probably more. For sure more, but we just don't know how many.

GLENN: And, to me, it's --

PAT: No water provided.

JEFFY: Yeah, that's how they found out; right? The guy came into the Walmart asking for water and the employee saw that he was close to, you know, heatstroke dead.

PAT: Yeah. Horrible.

GLENN: I mean, he's -- they're going -- the truck driver is going --

JEFFY: In front of a judge today.

GLENN: Here in Texas; right?

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: Hope he's got a hanging judge. Hope he's got a good ol' Texan that will teach him a thing or two about the taking life lightly.

STU: Remember, though, the caring side of this argument is to let this continue. It's not to fight and secure the border. The caring part of this argument is to allow the process that has been going on for how many years.

PAT: Either that, or just open the border wide because they're calling this death by policy. I mean --

STU: That's ridiculous.

GLENN: So here's the thing.

PAT: Such insanity.

GLENN: So here's the thing. Wove to decide. That's the real problem here. Is it we are playing the middle ground. We either decide.

PAT: We have a border, and we enforce it, or we don't.

GLENN: Or we don't. You have to decide. This sanctuary city thing is a lure, and brings lots of money into people who will do this kind of thing with an empty semi. So which is it going to be? Are we going to incentivize those people, which will lead to more death and destruction? Or are we going to say we have a border, take it seriously. Personally for the driver of this truck who knew and allowed these people to die, Texas death penalty should be coming his way.

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."

Gov. Kristi Noem DEFENDS against claims she’s ‘CAVING’ to NCAA on Title IX

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem had a tense interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week over claims she caved to the NCAA. Rather than signing a bill banning transgender girls and women from competing against biological females in sports, Noem returned it to the legislature for 'style and form' changes, arguing to Carlson the current version 'wouldn't solve the problem.' Noem joins Glenn to defend her decision, saying conservatives must be 'strategic' in the fight to defend Title IX.
