Terror attack in Toronto is further evidence THIS is the real cause of rising violence

10 people are dead and 15 others were seriously wounded in a vicious attack yesterday in Toronto. It happened around 1pm on a busy commercial street as pedestrians took advantage of the sunny spring weather.

The attacker accelerated to over 40 miles per hour and swerved up onto the sidewalk, methodically mowing down person after person. Witnesses saw the white Ryder rental van zigzagging back and forth, deliberately trying to hit everyone it could.

At the end of his killing spree, the driver jumped out of his vehicle and pointed what appeared to be a gun at law enforcement, yelling “KILL ME!” The Toronto Police took him into custody soon after, miraculously, without anyone else getting hurt.

We’ve had two attacks in North America in the past few days where multiple people have been killed. Can you guess what they had in common? I’ll give you a hint. It wasn’t the weapon they used. The Nashville attack involved a naked SHOOTER with a history of mental problems. The Toronto DRIVER ran over innocent pedestrians before attempting suicide by cop.

Everyone that knew him thought he was a recluse and weird, but they could never have guessed he’d do this. We now know that he made a Facebook post glorifying the Isla Vista, California killer who shot and killed 6 people back in 2014. His post said, “The Incel rebellion has begun! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger.”

Incel is a term meaning involuntarily celibate. It seems both the Isla Vista shooter and the Toronto driver were both 1. Sexually frustrated and 2. CRAZY.

Mental health is the common denominator in both recent attacks. In fact, it’s the common denominator in nearly 100 percent of mass casualty attacks, but that NEVER gets the publicity, other than the weapon used --- that is, if that weapon was a gun. Now, why is that? If a mentally unstable killer attacks people with a gun, it’s instantly, “BAN THE GUN!” But if a mentally unstable person kills with a vehicle it’s, “Sad day today... Ok, maybe just this once we’ll offer ‘thoughts and prayers.’”

Mental health is the common denominator in both recent attacks.

In the UK, gun attacks in both 1987 and 1996 led to a firearms ban. In Germany, gun attacks in 2002 and 2009 led to heavily restrictive firearms legislation. The attack in Australia in 1996 led to another firearms ban. That’s three countries that focused on the weapon and not the real problem.

A timeframe spanning 22 years in which 98 people were killed by mentally unstable people. Now, look at this statistic. In the past THREE YEARS ALONE, 140 people have been killed in both Europe and the EU from vehicle ramming attacks. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY PEOPLE IN ONLY THREE YEARS!

Vehicular-based attacks are rising at a rate higher than mass shootings, but has anyone AT ALL blamed the cars in these attacks? Of course they’re not. That’s just plain idiotic. But when it comes to guns, they’ll blame the firearm EVERY... SINGLE... TIME.

We’ve become a culture that is losing its respect for life at a rate equal to its deteriorating mental health. THAT’S the problem. How long will it take for us to realize it?

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
