Glenn Beck: $132,000 in 3 days



Ramos/Compean fundraiser


From Pat Gray's Blog...

 

The families of these border agent/political prisoners are struggling. Homes are in jeopardy, lives torn apart. So, we’re raising money for Monica Ramos and Patty Compean.

We’re asking that instead of one check, split your donation between the two: Make them out separately to Monica Ramos…AND…Patty Compean…and mail to:

Edd Henndee


Taste of Texas


10505 Katy Freeway


Houston, Texas 77024

GLENN: So yesterday Ed went down, a friend of ours, partner of yours, more of a friend of mine and partner of yours. You know what I'm saying?

GRAY: I know what you're saying.

GLENN: But he went down and he met with Nacio Ramos in prison.

GRAY: Yeah. This is, I think, the third time that he's met with him in prison, and just had a great talk with him because we've been doing the fundraiser obviously and so have you, and so he luckily we had this scheduled anyway and so he was able to tell him about the first couple of days and

GLENN: How long does it take Ed to get that schedule? It took us six months.

GRAY: You know, he goes through a local congressman that he's very close to.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Our congressman, not a lot of help.

GRAY: Not so much.

GLENN: Not so much, no.

GRAY: Yeah, it surprises me. In Connecticut? Huh.

GLENN: But we went and it was impossible to get in to see him. In fact, the first interview with both Compean and Ramos, the first in prison interview is in Fusion magazine. I couldn't bring a microphone or a camera in. I mean, you know, for their protection.

GRAY: For their protection.

GLENN: That's what it was.

GRAY: They thought you were going to beat him to death?

GLENN: No, it was for their protection, yeah.

GRAY: Uh huh, yeah, yeah.

GLENN: So I went in and interviewed and if you sign up for Fusion magazine, you'll get the first interview, first in prison interview with both Compean and Ramos in Fusion magazine. 888 Glenn Beck or GlennBeck.com. So he spoke with him yesterday and what happened?

GRAY: Here just an amazing story from Nacio because Nacio was talking about how, you know, just as the new verdict from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals started to sink in and I think he said in the last week or so and he said he started to realize, you know, he's going to he's going to be in prison now for a while.

GLENN: I think he's going to be in prison, unless something dramatic happens. I think these guys are going to be in prison for the term.

GRAY: I hope not.

GLENN: I hope not, either. It's going to have to something dramatic's going to have to happen.

GRAY: It is, it is. And, you know, obviously they are going to go unbunk and plead the case to the entire fifth circuit court which is 22 judges and if that doesn't work out, they will still take it to the supreme courts but, you know, that's a process of at least a year, at least a year. So, you know, that was all sinking in.

GLENN: Maybe if it gets to Justice Kennedy and the Supreme Court because Justice Kennedy believes there's an evolving sense of morality. So if it looks like the American people are starting to say, oh, wait a minute, we think this might be wrong, maybe justice Kennedy would have that evolving sense of justice and say, well, we're headed towards a place where it looks like this isn't wrong.


GRAY: Yeah, that gives is all just a glimmer of hope.

GLENN: It does, doesn't it? It wounds my heart.

GRAY: So as he's starting to realize how long he's going to be there and that his family's going to be without him and he can't support them for an even longer period of time, he just broke down. And at that point just ask Dodd, you're going to have to take care of my family because I just can't do it. Here, there's absolutely nothing I can do; please just see to my family. The next day he's listening to your show as he does every day and you've got his wife on and Patty Compean and me and we're talking about the fundraiser, and he had no idea it was coming. And he stopped right there dead in his tracks in the cell and just realized at that point and spoke it aloud: God, you've been here with me, you're here with me now and you've been here with me all along. And I get it now. I get it now. And so I realized at that point that, yeah, God is helping take care of his family.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

GRAY: Incredible, fantastic. You know, to get a small part in being a conduit and watching people just take off with this thing. In a time when we're told, you know, how bad the economy is. And yeah, it is. Everybody's struggling now to meet their bills and to just buy a tank of gas and you've got the mortgage crunch and you've got the uncertainty of the future and people stepping up like that? We've got $23,000 for these families in one day. This was before your listeners' donations started to get here. That's $46,000 on the first day. By day two it was $36,000 a piece for a total of $72,000. And then the listeners from all over the country from hearing your show

GLENN: This one time, we asked one time.

GRAY: One time. One time, and it kicked up the donations. The first day we got donations from around the country, went up to $66,000 per family. So in three days over $132,000 for the Ramos and Compean family.

GLENN: And that is again I just want to say some of that money is locally from Pat. That is this audience. One day, one mention. One mention. And it's nontax deductible. I mean, that is it's absolutely incredible.

GRAY: Nothing in it for anybody.

GLENN: Anybody. Nothing in it for anybody.

GRAY: Except the eternal principle we talked about when we were on my show today, that when you look outside yourself, you know, blessings will come to you as well. Your life is going to be happier, it's going to be better. And the amazing thing is, you know, our listeners get that. They understand that.

GLENN: You know, I said to you on your show, because you brought me on this morning and you told me this news and it came as just a, just it was a blessing to me to hear. And I shared a story that a very good friend of mine who has been just, he has had a horrible, horrible, tough life. We used to have to, when I was 15, 16, 17 years old, we would go down to the bar and we would have to go down and get his stepfather and pull him out of the bar drunk. And we you know, and he would just be, you know, typical drunk and we, as kids, would pull them out and take him home and put him into bed. And his father he saw kill himself and he just, had just his life has just been one tragedy right after another. And he's been an atheist or on good days an agnostic. And he came out to visit me and we spent a week together and we were sitting here in a hotel having dinner right after the new year and he said, I'm just miserable, Glenn and I'm having a hard time with money and I can't, I can't do it anymore. And I said, you know, I know you don't believe in God but just try two principles. The first one is you're worried about money? Give it away. Give it away. Just know that by giving it away, more will come back to you. Worry about somebody else and give that money away, just 10%. You're going to struggle with that 10%. Just give it away and more will come back.

Then the other one is serve other people. Stop worrying about yourself. Just serve other people and everything will be okay. He called me last week. He said, Glenn, I can't believe it. Not only am I happy, not only am I by serving other people am I finding such peace and comfort, he said, but I've been giving money away. He said, an aunt of mine who just died I didn't even know I had left me a huge sum of money and on the same day, the day that the day before I was saying, I don't have any money, what am I going to do because I've, you know, been living these principles, he said, and I also got another check that I wasn't even expecting. And they were large sums of money. He said, I couldn't believe it. And he said, I've got to go start going to church. What are the rest of those principles? I called him yesterday. He went to church for the very first time in I think his life. He went to church on Sunday. Called him yesterday. Here's a lifelong friend who's been miserable his whole life and he said to me I said, how was it? How are things? He said, Glenn, I went to church on Sunday. He said, you know me. I'm not a God guy. He said, but I just just going to church that Sunday, just listening to some of that stuff and just trying to apply some of these principles, he said, these are the two happiest days of my life. Boy, if we just get outside of ourself, miracles happen.

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a transgender activist called for a "Supreme Court Assassination Challenge" on Twitter, according to screenshots captured of the now-deleted tweet.

Activist Eli Erlick, a founding member of Trans Student Educational Resources (TSER) and creator of the controversial "gender identity" teaching tool for children called the "Gender Unicorn," tweeted and later deleted the disturbing remark on Friday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) also caught a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

"The unhinged radical left is calling for the assassination of our Supreme Court Justices. That's not the way to disagree with a decision in America. It is unacceptable, and Biden’s DOJ must immediately act," Blackburn responded on Twitter.

Erlich then tried to play off her call to assassinate Supreme Court justices as a hilarious joke only Gen Z and Millennials would understand, apparently not understanding the seriousness of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just three weeks ago.

Erlick isn't the only Left-winger to make incendiary calls since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Here are just a few examples:

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on people to “defy" the Supreme Court.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called for people to get “into the streets” alongside radical communist leader who wants to 'overthrow' the American system.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) yelled "F*** Clarence Thomas" on a public stage for all to see and hear.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
  • And of course, "TheView" host Whoopi Goldberg issued a disgusting racist threat toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program, BlazeTV hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere took a look at these and other stunning examples of leftist lunacy over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

Build up or tear down.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
