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.

In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

I promise: We're on it."

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.
