Watch: Suspect in NYC Terrorist Attack Specifically Targeted Children

More details are emerging about the terrorist attack this week in New York City.

Terrorist suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov had reportedly been planning his attack for a year and used online resources to find his weapon of choice: a pickup truck from Home Depot. He then looked for the best spot for his attack, searching for “Halloween in New York City” and choosing a place where he would be likely to kill children.

On today’s show, Glenn warned that times have changed – terrorists can be radicalized and given instructions for carrying out attacks from anywhere in the world. Our tactics for fighting them need to evolve.

GLENN: The disturbing details of how Saipov, the Uzbek immigrant turned terrorist planned and executed his attack is becoming very clear. And it needs to become clear to all of us that times are changing. The narrative gives us a frightening look inside of the mind of a cold-blooded and calculated killer.

Saipov had been planning his attack on Manhattan, the West Side bike path for a year. We still don't know when and how long he had been radicalized. But for any new and aspiring ISIS recruit getting instruction from the caliphate is actually pretty easy. You just pull up an app on your phone and log into the internet. Both ISIS and al-Qaeda give instructions and directions online that act as some sort of demented University of Phoenix for terrorists. I hope we're monitoring that.

Several months ago, ISIS began telling their followers to stop coming to Syria and Iraq. They could be more effective by staying in their home countries. ISIS began directing their soldiers to use vehicles as weapons in order to stay off the radar of law enforcement.

Saipov took this instruction and made the decision around September to use a truck. On October 4th, he searched online for a Home Depot store in New Jersey. He noted a location that rented trucks and continued his preparation.

On the 18th of last month, he began looking for the best spot to execute his attack. He wanted to inflict the maximum amount of casualties. But not just on any people would do. He wanted to make a statement. He looked up Halloween in New York City. You can only imagine what he saw as he clicked through image after image of trick-or-treaters walking down the West Side path. He chose specifically this location with hopes that children would be killed.

He rented a practice truck on October 22nd. He began making his dry runs. On October 28th, he scoped the target location one last time. He was ready. He carried a stun gun. Three knives. Just in case he lived long enough to use them. He originally planned on hanging two ISIS flags on the front and the back of the truck, but changed his mind the last minute. He didn't want to risk attracting attention before entering the walkway. Inside the truck, police found a handwritten note, both Arabic and English. It read no God. But God and Muhammad as his prophet.

Islam will endure. We are entering a new era in the War on Terror. Where people can be radicalized, taught, and instructed from the comfort of their own home, anywhere in the world. They're smart, they're calculating, and they are devoted.

The terrorists have evolved. The question is, can we stop arguing with one another long enough to evolve to stop them?

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.
