Deputy PM Explains How Extreme Vetting Has Prevented Terrorist Attacks in Poland

Polish Deputy Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, joined Glenn on radio to discuss why Poland continues to refuse refugees from Islamic countries.

Poland and Hungary refused to cooperate with 2015 deal that proposed the allocation of 160,000 refugees to relieve several EU members including Greece and Italy and received heavy scrutiny for their decision.

“The European borders are not secure,” said Morawiecki. “Millions of refugees come every year to Europe and then you can see all those pictures of terror attacks all over the place, in particular, in France and Germany. Poland is safe. We don’t have it.”

Poland is one of the few European countries that have not experienced a terrorist attack since mass migration from Syria and North Africa began.

“This is because we treat security very seriously. We do not allow for the Islamic migrants and Islamic refugees to come without very thorough scrutiny … And this is the main reason,” said Morawiecki.

“And in many different ways, they are attacking our civilization. They hate Christianity. They hate Europe. So, I think that we have the right … We have the right and obligation to defend it for the next generations.”

GLENN: So the alt-left, Antifa, is growing here in the United States in Philadelphia. They just had a big meeting. They're going to eradicate 21st century slavery. What is that?

Well, they want a revolutionary abolitionist movement. They're raising funds now for an underground railroad to help people escape the state because, quote, the Civil War was never resolved. And the system of slavery just transitioned into the prison industrial complex.

So they're going to help, I guess, prisoners escape in an underground railroad. And they are basing themselves in Philadelphia because of Philadelphia's rich revolutionary tradition. They are -- they're calling now -- they had workshops. They're calling the police our enemies in blue.

They're seeking to abolish all gender. They're calling on members of Antifa to steal tools and lands so they can build their own state independent of the United States. And they plan to build local defense teams and councils.

They also are extolling the revolutionary movement in Syria. They say that they are going to build a worldwide movement towards communism. They are -- they -- they're dressed up in all black. They're carrying machine guns. The video is absolutely astounding. It looks like an ISIS video.

That's what the press says is fine. Antifa. That's going to come back and backfire on them. America is not a place that looks at communists and says, "Well, they're better than the Nazis. Or the Nazis, they're better than the communists." No, we made this decision a long time ago. For 50 years, we fought this war. First against the Nazis, then against the communists. They're both bad. And it seems like you can't get that message anywhere in the United States.

Instead, where is that message coming from? Places like Poland. Poland is more United States than the United States is. You don't believe me? I have the deputy prime minister of Poland on with us. And we begin, right now.

(music)

GLENN: Poland's deputy prime minister, Mateusz Jakub Morawiecki is with us.

Welcome, Prime Minister, how are you, sir? Do I call you Deputy Prime Minister? I'm not sure what the protocol is.

MATEUSZ: Both is okay. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me. I'm very fine.

How are you?

GLENN: Very good. We're glad you're here in the United States. I know you've been talking to key business leaders and political leaders in the United States. And I appreciate you taking some time out and talking to me.

I am impressed with the former Soviet republics. Because they know what's happening in the world.

Can you tell me your view from across the water on the things that you're seeing happening here in America -- and I don't want to make this about politics -- but what do you see that is growing up within our ranks that concerns you?

MATEUSZ: Sure. Even these days, very big military exercise starting done by Mr. Putin, which is indicating how dangerous and how aggressive Russia may be. And we should not forget about this Russian hacks on emails and all what they are doing in the (inaudible) unconventional war. And Ukraine is indicating that they -- they -- this is still their main way, how they do politics.

Like today, Poland is a safe country. We are a strong country. But we -- we need very close cooperation, like we have -- we have historically all the way from (inaudible), we have fought during the War of Independence. And then in -- our soldiers are in Iraq and in Afghanistan, together hand in hand with American soldiers.

And there are all the idealists who think maybe we should not think about the defense policy too much because everybody wants to live in a peaceful world. It's great. But this is not true.

And this is -- this is one aspect, how I think that proximity to Russia, we can explain how -- how difficult it is. And, you know, the proximity is really like, if there was between New Jersey and New York, we can feel the hot breath of Russia there on our neck.

GLENN: So tell me what that means. Talking to the deputy prime minister of Poland. Tell me what that means to you. Because here in America, we've been so isolated. And our universities have stopped teaching that -- well, I don't know if they ever did. But teaching that communism is bad and a -- a killer that is only surpassed by disease.

You lived through it. The people of Poland lived through it. Tell me what America should know about communists.

MATEUSZ: Of course, we lived through this. And, well, like I myself was imprisoned. And my father who was fighting in the solidarity times during the '80s, he was in prison for a long time.

And the transformation, which started in 1989, was by far not complete because the same -- I just give you an example. The same judges who have maybe passing sentences on the -- the fighters for freedom in the '80s, like my father or myself or many of my friends, the same judges are today judges in the Supreme Court.

This is what happens in -- if the -- if there is not real deep transformation in a system.

Which is -- which is -- which was okay because there was not any bloody revolution in 1989, 1990. But then I asked everybody to understand why we would like to have this second transformation today. And why we have the worst -- the worst judiciary system amongst all the 28 countries of the European Union, and we want to deeply reform this. And then the counterattack of all our enemies is -- is so visible. And who is among -- amongst those -- those attacking us? Of course, companies. And top companies are there because they feel very well in a system which is vague, which is not based on meritocracy, which is based on corporationism, as we call it in Poland. Lots of dependencies on different corporations, lawyers, judges, and so on.

And we don't like -- we want the system to be more republican, more democratic. And this is why we have so many incomprehensions around us and misunderstandings.

GLENN: Are you concerned at all, deputy prime minister of Poland, are you concerned at all about the rise of heritage groups, as they're calling themselves? You know, the Javax (phonetic) Party or Golden Dawn here in the United States, the Nazi Party? We've got extremists on both sides. And it's in some ways starting to look like the 1930s or 1920s in Europe all around the world. Are you concerned about the rise on both sides?

MATEUSZ: I am concerned about the rise on both sides. And in Europe, it's -- it's particularly visible on the left side. But there is also some examples on the right, like Marine Le Pen in France.

Therefore, first prerequisite for safe Poland, safe Europe, safe world is to prevent terrorist attacks and to really deal with the mass migration and policy like Australia did or like America did. Australia has managed to stop the flow by securing its own borders. And the European borders resident secure. Millions of refugees come every -- every year to -- to Europe. And then you can see all those pictures of terror attacks all over the place, particularly in France or Germany. Poland is safe. We don't have it.

GLENN: Right. Why is Poland -- if I'm not mistaken, you're the only main country in Europe that has not been hit by a terrorist attack. Why?

MATEUSZ: Yeah, yeah, that's correct. Absolutely. Recently in Spain, in Barcelona. Before that, in the UK in many places, in France, and in Italy, and Germany. So we are the only of the six countries, which did not experience terror.

GLENN: Why?

MATEUSZ: This is because we -- we treat security with -- very seriously. We do not allow for the Islamic migrants and Islamic refugees to come without very thorough scrutiny by our -- by our social security and so on. Sorry about -- secret service and our special services for those activities. And this is -- and this is the main reason: Germans and French, our friends and partners, they have allowed virtually millions of those refugees. And most of them, there are many decent people, good people. But unfortunately, there are many not-so-decent people, very bad people.

And they are -- they are attacking in all sorts -- in many different ways. They're attacking our civilization. They hate Christianity. They hate Europe.

So I think that we have the right -- we are the -- the heart of the Christian civilization. And we have the right and obligation to defend it for the next generation. So we can allow for -- for -- of course, for migrants. And, for instance, in Europe -- sorry, in Poland, we do our job too. Because we -- we have accommodated one and a half million Ukrainian population. Many of them are refugees from eastern part of Ukraine, where there is war. Because Ukraine was attacked by Russia. So we are doing our part. We contribute to calming down the situation. And we go the middle road. We try to persuade our partners in Brussels, that this -- the refugee policy is very dangerous for -- for the whole of Europe. And we have to preserve our borders. We have to have safe countries.

GLENN: I'm talking to the deputy prime minister of Poland. How concerned are you that if the world doesn't wake up, we are going to be reaping the seeds that are being sown right now. And perhaps that ends in yet another global conflict.

MATEUSZ: Well, this is -- probably to your opening remarks, the situation is probably not that bad as it was in the '30s with Hitler and Stalin and the weak democracies and so on. But I am concerned that the situation might go in the wrong direction.

GLENN: Yeah.

MATEUSZ: Therefore, there is this old Latin saying (foreign language), which is, you know, we have to be well-armed and well-equipped. And we have to contribute to military spending. And, by the way, Poland is not amongst the five richest countries in NATO. But we make sure to be one of the five who comply with the two percentage points of GDP military spending rule, which was -- which was actually realized by President Trump when he was in Warsaw just two months ago. And we are a very, very reliable ally. And I think Article V of the Washington treaty is a very important element of the whole architecture of peace going forward.

Another one is also dealing with the security of our own borders, like America does, like Australia does.

But in Europe, many countries are not doing their part. So our advice to our European friends is to really concentrate on our own security and to eliminate all those extremes from the left and from the right.

Some of them, they have to be brought to the table. And persuaded in a civilized way. But some of them who are really extremists in France and in German, some Islamic parties and so on, they should be taken under a microscope and should be so -- we should be so vigilant about them as never before.

GLENN: Poland's Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Thank you so much, sir. I appreciate it.

MATEUSZ: If I could just add one sentence, on behalf of the government of the Republic of Poland, I would like to express my sincere condolences on the terrible tragedy caused by the Hurricane Harvey. So we are very sad about this. And if the government of Poland could do anything to help our American friends, our -- the people from America, we could -- we could do everything possible at our -- at our end.

GLENN: Gosh, that's nice to hear. Thank you so much. We appreciate that.

MATEUSZ: Thank you.

GLENN: We can tell that was heartfelt.

MATEUSZ: Thanks for having me.

PAT: He's a class act.

GLENN: Yeah. And I think you can hear, you know, why is he over here in America? What are they doing? Obviously, they are worried about the bear. Obviously, they are worried about what is coming on their own border. And they are looking to find some allies in America. They are more America today than we are. And they're looking for some allies in America who is going to say, "Hey, is anybody going to help us stand?" Because the big, bad wolf -- or in this case, the big, bad bear is coming back.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"Who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger. That doesn't make sense, why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [the Democrats] will have evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
