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.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
