Glenn Beck: More Violence on the Border

GLENN: Let's go to Phoenix and Darrell Ankarlo who is at our sister station or our affiliate, KTAR in Phoenix, Arizona, and he's doing a lot on the border. You got a new book out that really shows the border unlike anything, anything else I've ever read, Darrell.

ANKARLO: Thank you for that. By the way, hope you're feeling better, hope you don't snap and I hope I'm somewhat intelligent on the Closed Line Friday.

GLENN: Not really. Okay. So Darrell, tell me what happened because I'm reading these reports that Mexican military invaded a home in Phoenix, Arizona. True or false?

ANKARLO: Shaky details. Let me tell you what happened. On last Sunday night about 11:00, seven or eight guys burst into a home almost like Scarface. If you remember the end of that movie, it was like a Scarface kind of a scene. Seven or eight guys with fully automatic weapons, just blow the place to smithereens. Inside the house happens to be, you know, a guy who sells drugs. I mean, one of our upstanding members of society. It was a drug house and it was a place where they would routinely sell the marijuana. Apparently drug fight breaks out, they blow this guy to smithereens. The cops are saying 100 bullets. An inside cop source that I talked to last night said it was double that. So then they take off because the cops arrive. Three of these guys go into an alley, Glenn, and they get out of their vehicle because the cops now have helicopters and vehicles surrounding the place and they put down their weapons and as they're being arrested, one of the arresting officers to talked to me yesterday on this personally said as he was arresting the guy he said, you know, what is your background. You know, debriefing him. And the guy says, well, I have a military background. Now, some in town are suggesting that it was Mexican military background but what I'm understanding is the cops are still trying to figure it out.

Here's what we know. The three who were arrested, two of them definitely illegal immigrants. The third said that he was a U.S. citizen but now as of last night I was told he, too, was illegal. All three have been arrested here. All three have had major criminal problems in America. All three were deported, so they come back. But here's the kicker. As the arresting officer is putting the cuffs on him, the guy whispers. He says, you're lucky we didn't have the ammo, or something to that effect. And the cop says, well, what are you talking about. He said, our goal was to ambush you in this alley. Our goal was to kill you in this alley. And the cop says, and why would you do that? And he said, because this is our country and we want you to know we're taking it back. All happened in this town.

Here's the problem. Remember I said it was seven or eight guys who broke in. The other guys took off in another vehicle. We have no idea where they are. All we know is according to officers they had enough ammo to wipe out a small town. Where they are --

GLENN: Wait, wait.

ANKARLO: -- we don't know.

GLENN: So how reliable is your source that the guy said that to the police officer? Because that's pretty --

ANKARLO: He was one of the arresting officers. We vetted him before we put him on the air and we backed this up with another source within the police department. The guy is who -- you know, my source, Glenn, is who he claimed to be on the show yesterday. And I had the head of the police union on the show for an hour and a half yesterday. I mean, this turned into a major war on the air on the show because the police trying to downplay this and I said, you know what, here's the deal. Let's take Mexican out of it, Mexican military out of it. Let's remove that completely. Let's just all agree, and everybody agreed this was the drug cartel that you've been talking about for months on your show, but instead of Yuma, Arizona or instead of a Texas border town, this is in Phoenix, Arizona, the fifth largest city in the United States of America. And according to the police department they have seen much more of this kind of violence, these kinds of fights in the last five months than they've ever seen. And, of course, they're saying it won't be tolerated, we're going to stop it. The issue is the drug cartel is now moving up to the big cities and are pulling out the big guns and it's like, screw you, we can kill at will in Mexico, we'll do the same thing in America; what are you going to do to us.

GLENN: So Darrell, what is happening? What is the police, what are they protecting? Why are they keeping this down? Why is this not again playing all across the country?

ANKARLO: Yeah.

GLENN: Because I don't see this everywhere, and every time -- there's a story that I have, and we're still checking it out and you know what, I don't even feel comfortable enough. It looks like it's accurate, but I'm not sure yet. So I don't even want to carry it on the air. But there is a possibility that someone who is very high ranking in the United States government with Homeland Security has had a family member kidnapped down on the border and they're sending messages. Now, if this indeed turns out to be true -- first of all, why isn't that story everywhere? Why aren't the stories of the 70 missing Americans or the heads, the actual heads that are being put on fence posts just across our border, why aren't those stories getting out there?

ANKARLO: By the way, Glenn, the heads that you're talking about, I saw some of those on your website. When my son, Adam, came home from Fallujah, and this was the big fight, this was the major fight, he brought pictures back that equaled what you show on your website except that was in a time of war in Fallujah, Iraq. The stuff you show on your website comes from dog gone Mexico, two hours from where I live. But here's the answer. If you've got a city and you need convention business and you need businesses to move to town and you need commerce to grow, the last thing in the world you can afford is to have people know that you've got drug cartels running crazy and/or Mexican military out of control. So you are going to quell it.

Let me give you another stat. The number one kidnapping capital in the United States of America according to law enforcement is a little town that you've lived in called Phoenix, Arizona. Nobody talked about that, either. And let's go back to Mexico for a minute, Glenn. What goes on in Mexico on a daily basis literally. I need 5,000 bucks, I kidnap you, I call the family, they say okay, we'll give you the money and they drop me off at a corner sometime that night. They are bringing this crap to our country, and you are right. They are trying to keep this stuff down.

Let me hit you, and I know you're running, you know, real late today, but black boots, black BDUs, that's your tactical gear, they had Phoenix police raid shirts. Nobody knows where these guys got those. Handguns, AR-15s, aim point sights. Those are the sights my son, a sniper in Fallujah used. Body armor, ballistic helmets, thigh holsters. These are what these guys were wearing when they went into this house. I mean, these guys were military, they were commando, if anything they were drug cartel, and the details get buried. And you are right, nobody wants to talk about it. And when I do, I'm a hater and I'm a racist and how dare you bring this up at the forefront.

GLENN: I know. Darrell, I have to commend you on what you have done already. You've got a book out. It's called Another Man's Sombrero and it details your trip across the border, how easy it is, stuff that I have never read any place else. It's in the book, Another Man's Sombrero and it is in bookstores everywhere. Now, Darrell, we'll talk to you again, my friend. Stay safe in Phoenix, Arizona.

ANKARLO: Hope you feel better, man.

GLENN: Thanks. By the way, we will have the blog on this. Darrell has outlined this whole thing. You'll be able to read about it in great detail. We'll include it in our free e-mail newsletter today at GlennBeck.com. You can sign up for it. It's on the upper right-hand corner of GlennBeck.com.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
