Glenn Beck: Time to die


The good people of Houston prepare for tropical storm Edouard...

GLENN: I give you our argument against idiots today. In fact, let me -- is Pat on the phone? Is he online? Pat, are you there?

GRAY: I'm here.

GLENN: We're going to give our arguments. Can you hang on with us for a few minutes? Because I want to talk to you about Medellin before we do the arguments against idiots.

GRAY: All right. You don't want to talk about Edouard and the unbelievable carnage that's sweeping through the Houston area?

GLENN: Not really.

GRAY: We've got reports. Some people have had to put their wipers on intermittent.

GLENN: Shut up.

GRAY: I'm serious. Not sustained winds but gusts up to 8 miles an hour in Houston area.

GLENN: Stu, see if we can get Stu out on the --

GRAY: You might want to.

GLENN: The Gulf of Mexico to see if he can give us a report out there.

GRAY: Been brutal, been brutal.

GLENN: And how do you pronounce the name of this hurricane?

GRAY: Edouard.

GLENN: Edouard?

GRAY: Edouard. If you want to roll in the back of your tongue.

GLENN: Edouard.

GRAY: Edouard.

GLENN: Hurricane Edouard.

GRAY: Kind of like you would say (inaudible), Edouard.

GLENN: Like I say what?

GRAY: (Inaudible). You know like if you were a news journalist and you spoke completely nonaccented English but you happened to be down in Nicaragua with a story and you wanted to show your --

GLENN: Prowess?

GRAY: Yeah, your prowess as a journalist, then you go... (inaudible).

GLENN: I didn't know that. You can't say that.

GRAY: No, it's a rule.

GLENN: Is that kind of like the -- is like the gutter? Remember when we changed, it was like -- what was it, Qatar?

GRAY: Yeah, gutter. All of a sudden our whole lives it's been Qatar. Now it's like gutter.

GLENN: You're like gutter, when did we start calling it gutter? But do the Nicaragua thing again?

GLENN: (Inaudible).

GLENN: When you say it like that, you're like, what the hell did I just say?

GRAY: Well, you've got to think about it.

GLENN: I understand. All right. So Edouard. Edouard is not really getting too dicey, huh?

GRAY: Kind of a nonevent again, yeah. But we're --

GLENN: So let me ask you this. Is there a chance that the power would go out and you can't, you know, soup up the electric chair tonight?

Mexican set for Texas execution

GRAY: No.

GLENN: No?

GRAY: Well, I mean, there is that chance but I've already offered to donate a baseball bat if that happened. So I think we're going to be okay.

GLENN: Why the hate? Why the hate from this -- why the hate for this misunderstood illegal alien that your state in Texas is just trying to kill for some reason?

GRAY: I know. Have you seen that Canadian website where he launched into his big explanation about how it was just an adolescent decision he made?

GLENN: An adolescent, didn't he brutally rape and kill and torture two girls?

GRAY: For over an hour, uh-huh, yeah.

GLENN: Sometimes -- can I tell you something? Pat, do you remember when we were adolescents? Do you remember when we were just like crazy, we were just like, what do you want to do. You're like, I don't know, maybe we just go torture a dog for a while, cut him open and stuff but keep him alive? Do you remember that?

GRAY: Yeah. Down at the old folks home? Remember that?

GLENN: That was so adolescent (laughing). Wait a minute, Pat, shouldn't we maybe get the old folks out of the nursing home and --

GRAY: Nah.

GLENN: No, we're adolescents. Let's burn them alive inside.

GRAY: You want to try to get out of there when they're watching (laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). That was so adolescent of us.

GRAY: Oh, those were the days.

GLENN: Why didn't we -- Pat, why were we burning down old folks homes? I mean, that was fun, don't get me wrong. Do you remember that old lady who was like, "Help me.

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: "Help me, don't let me burn to death." And I'm like, look, her white hair is on fire. We could have been scoring chicks and then carving them up.

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: What were we thinking?

GRAY: Well, we weren't, clearly we weren't.

GLENN: Those adolescent days (laughing).

GRAY: (Laughing).

GLENN: Okay. In case you don't understand what that adolescent did many years ago, why don't you tell me about what's his name?

GRAY: Jose Medellin.

GLENN: No, no, no. Say it, come on, like you're in Nicaragua.

GRAY: Jose Medellin. Jose Medellin.

GLENN: Jose Medellin, he was just an adolescent.

GRAY: Just an adolescent. He was 18 years old, by the way, misunderstood, here from Mexico. Very proud, and he writes on the blog of the Canadian antigun penalty website about how proud of Mexico he was. But anyway --

GLENN: I bet they are proud of him, too.

GRAY: Of course they are.

GLENN: Sure.

GRAY: And trying to keep him alive desperately, I'll tell you that.

GLENN: Sure.

GRAY: So he and his group of animals were out one night on a gang initiation and these two 15 and 14-year-old -- one was 15, one was 14. They were a little late getting home from a party and they were scared and they tried to cut across TC Jester Park which is not a great area of town and it's down the railroad tracks. They thought they would save 10 minutes on their way home. And unfortunately they stumbled across this gang initiation rite that Jose Medellin and his thugs were performing at the time. And Medellin grabbed them and threw them on the ground and Elizabeth Pena turned around to help her friend, Jennifer Ertman. And then she was grabbed and the horror began for the two of them over the next hour where they were repeatedly raped. They were tortured. They wrapped a belt around their necks and pulled so tight that it broke the belt. Then they took their shoelaces and strangled them. Then just for good measure, they stomped on their throats to crush them to death after having their way with them. So --

GLENN: And I mean, I don't think you need to make this more brutal, but when you say having your way with them, you can't even begin to imagine -- we read this stuff so you don't have to. You can't even imagine how many ways they had their ways with them.

GRAY: Jose, Jose bragged in jail about how the two were virgins, and the story has just been heartbreaking for 15 years.

GLENN: 15 years.

GRAY: Every time it comes back up and Mexico throws some other stall tactic, it puts the families of these two girls through the whole thing all over again, over and over and over. It is the most unbelievable horrific situation I think I've ever encountered.

GLENN: Okay. So you know, I talked to your governor, Rick Perry, when I was down in Dallas. He came to the comedy show and he was standing backstage. Mainly I think the crowd made him afraid a little bit, but he was standing backstage and we were talking before I went on and I said, "Are you gonna make sure this guy's executed?" And he said, you know what, Glenn? He said, "It's not my job to judge, it is not my job to forgive." He said, "That's the Lord's job. The Lord can forgive and the Lord can judge." My job as the governor of Texas is to arrange the meeting between Medellin and Jesus.

GRAY: That's so great.

GLENN: And I said, will you look me in the eye right now and tell me that on your watch you will arrange that meeting, that meeting will happen? And he got out his cell phone and he said, yep, hang on just a second. I'm going to give you the exact date when that meeting's going to happen. And he gave me this date and he said, "This is it and it will happen." Now today Ban Ki-moon, who is the, you know, the leader of the world, the UN.

GRAY: Uh-huh.

GLENN: How would you say that if you were in Nicaragua?

GRAY: (Inaudible).

GLENN: Okay. So anyway, he said that he was --

GRAY: It's hard without the R.

GLENN: Yeah. He said that the United States should obey the decisions of the International Criminal Court and make sure the scheduled execution of a Mexican prisoner in Texas does not take place today. I talked to your governor again last night and he said, "Uh-huh, gonna happen, gonna happen."

GRAY: All systems are go supposedly. And you --

GLENN: If, if Edouard doesn't get in the way.

GRAY: Yes, right. Well, then that's where my baseball bat comes in. But as you notice, our governor is not that popular because of the decisions he's made since the last election.

GLENN: Yes.

GRAY: But this, I've got to take my hat off to him because he's been great on this. He's shown a spine on this and he's doing exactly the right thing.

GLENN: What time is it scheduled for? What time is it scheduled for?

GRAY: 5:30.

GLENN: 5:30, you'll be able to have dinner and go, hey, that execution thing, that was pretty sweet, huh? All right. We will continue -- we'll continue to follow the story and we'll bring you up to speed tonight on TV on this. And also we'll bring you up to speed on tomorrow's broadcast. Will you join us again for that as well tomorrow?

GRAY: Sure.

GLENN: All right. And I just appreciate tomorrow, Pat, if you could, if you could just do it live from Nicaragua.

GRAY: No problem.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
