Glenn Beck: Compean & Ramos Part Deux



Border Patrol Fundraiser Shirt


 ***All of Glenn's proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be donated to a legal defense fund for Agents Ramos and Compean.***

GLENN: Okay. So Edgar Israel Ortega Chavez was shot Tuesday night in his left buttocks and is in stable condition, you'll be relieved to hear, this according to a spokesperson for the hospital general in Tijuana who spoke on the condition of anonymity didn't want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. Ortega, 22, found by Mexican authorities on a dirt bank above the spot where the border crosses the dry concrete line Tijuana river basin, Tijuana police said in a news release yesterday, San Diego police said the shooter was a ten year border patrol veteran but they didn't release his name. Border patrol said the agent feared by getting struck by a rock but the shooting drew swift criticism from Mexican authorities. Oh, I bet it did. The incident is of grave concern to the government of Mexico. Under no circumstances would it be justified to shoot lethal or nonlethal objects to the Mexican side of the border. There are conflicting accounts about what happened. Police say they witnessed the shooting. They were on the Mexican side of the border. The Associated Press talked to those people. More than a dozen people gathered on Mexican soil to plan an illegal crossing into the U.S. They threw rocks to distract agents. The border patrol agents tried to disperse the crowd with pepper spray bullets. Jose Maria Martinez, how do you is that a woman or a man? Is Maria do I not understand the name thing?

STU: I think the first name is the most critical, and Jose would be identified potentially as a man.

GLENN: I would think so, too, but now I'm confused by Maria. Why is Pat suddenly so very quiet?

STU: He's very smart.

GLENN: Why

STU: Very intelligent man.

GLENN: Why are you so quiet?

GRAY: Well, I'm waiting for my time.

GLENN: You go ahead at any time. Go ahead. I mean, I'm ask you are living in Houston. I'd like to know.

GRAY: You're kind of going. I'm listening.

GLENN: Where is Jose, is it a man or a woman? Is Maria suddenly a unisex name? I mean, if somebody comes, you know, calls me up on the phone and I say, hey, Maria, you're on the Glenn Beck program and the other voice on the other end said, yeah, I just want to tell you something I was thinking, I'm a little confused.

GRAY: I got you. I feel your pain, I do. I feel your pain.

GLENN: You are not going to give me an answer on this.

GRAY: I don't know the answer, Glenn. I wish I did.

GLENN: Jose Maria Martinez who was with the group said one agent exchanged his pepper ball launcher for a rifle. The agent then fired three shots from a concrete post that marks the official border, Martinez says. Now, Martinez who again was part of the rock throwing part of the group, said the agent said, you want to fight? You want a war? Let's do it. And pow, he got him right away.

GRAY: Oh to humanity, oh, the brutality. How dare he shoot an illegal, throwing rocks, tried to kill him in the buttocks, how dare you do it. Here we go again. How much time?

GLENN: We should give him the chair. Not even, not even lethal injection. The chair. And they should you know what? If you are on if you are in the chair and you wear, like, some sort of a synthetic hat while you're in the electric chair, when they start pumping that juice through you, you are had. Your head is set on fire because of the synthetic material and it kind of melts over your face but you don't really die. So I think we should make I think we should not only give this border agent the chair, we should put him in synthetic clothing and a hat so his head catches on fire. And then we lower the juice just enough so it kills him but only after he's been burning and getting juice for about 20 minutes. That's how evil this border agent is.

GRAY: I got Mexico on the other line. They like it. They like it. They are taking it immediately to the Bush administration.

GLENN: That's good. If we could get that into the world court, we would be set.

GRAY: No, we're done. We're done.

GLENN: Odds wait a minute. Hang on a sec. When you say we're done, how did you mean that?

GRAY: In every way possible.

GLENN: Okay, good. Odds that this guy pat?

GRAY: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you just want to go

GRAY: I just sit back every day.

GLENN: You do?

GRAY: Every day. Just when you thought it gets bad as it possibly can.

GLENN: It gets worse. Every day I look at it and I say, you know, no way out. I mean, it's just, how do you how, without okay. Hey, hey, hey. Stu, Dan which, by the way, Dan, you are not eating.

STU: What's wrong with you, Dan? Are you okay?

DAN: I'm fine. I'm just waiting for my next wave of food to come in.

STU: This wasn't like the weight lifter who broke his elbow.

GLENN: There's food right in front of you.

STU: Oh, yeah, there's a hash brown right there. Should I bring it over to him?

GLENN: Let's do this. I'm going to take a break. I'm going to give everybody a moment here, okay? Dan, I'll give you a moment. Stu and Pat, I'll give you a moment. When I come back, I want a positive way to get out of all of the messes that we're in, you know, the planet going to be bursting into flames soon, the no oil situation. No, let's not really work on actual energy sources that we understand at this point. The Georgia situation, the Iranian situation where, mark my words, Israel is going soon. The whole Islamic extremism thing, the economy, all of these things I'd like happy possibilities on how we get out of all of that. So who you guys work on that for a second and then I'm going to come back here in just a second after I tell you about our sponsor.

(Break)

GLENN: So my best friend Pat is on the phone and he just said a few minutes ago, he said, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, it gets worse. And we were talking about the, you know, how every day you get up, and maybe you don't. God bless you. God bless you. But every day I get up and I look at the news and I see and I think there's another log on the fire, there is another log on the fire. And I just can't figure out a way that, you know, if Americans don't start standing up and saying, wait a minute, I mean, here's the way to me here's the way out. The way out is to make sure that the people in congress and Senate, the President at this point, the people in congress and Senate are people of real integrity that see our Constitution as an ironclad document that is not something that flaps in the wind or evolves. We are a Republic. And then they demand fiscal responsibility and Draconian cuts in our spending, period. Then on the other side they also look at energy and they become to the environment Draconian and they do whatever they have to do to get that oil out of the ground, to get that shale into our gas tanks, get the coal into our gas tanks as much as we can, as fast as we can so we are energy independent. Plus, you go ahead and develop all your alternative energy but you've got to move quickly to become somewhat energy independent. Without that happening and that's going to take the Lord Jesus himself coming down to get that to happen, at least with these clowns in Washington. Give me the other solution. Stu, we start with you. Give me the other solution.

STU: I think there's other solutions.

GLENN: Tell me how it's going to just going to go away? Because usually these problems just go away.

STU: Well, they sometimes do. Like, you know, obviously the Georgia thing's all fired up right now and you've got the extremism thing going on but I mean basically, like the Russians will try to take over Georgia and then they will try to expand that and then they will probably go back to Afghanistan and then those extremists will get upset there, then it will start a war between extremists and the Russians. They will wipe each other out and then that will be available for us to take. We can take all the oil from there and that solves our economic problems. That's basic math.

GLENN: How does this work?

GRAY: I keep preaching the same thing over and over. It takes total vigilance on our part.

DAN: We don't have vigilance.

GRAY: If we're going to say, I voted, I did my part, then we're toast. There's no way out of it.

GLENN: So then we're toast. Doesn't that sound like hard work, Stu in

STU: That sounds really hard.

DAN: I have an answer for you, Glenn. Universal healthcare obviously coming, I think we take it to a more specific route and we go universal Ambien and we just, everyone gets Ambien and we just sleep through it all. We just kind of sleep it off.

GLENN: I like that because we're not spending money if we're sleeping.

DAN: And then when you're sleeping since it's a government program that puts you to sleep, you are going to need government assistance to pay your bills and all that. So you'll just live for free asleep until you die.

GLENN: You know what, the government will make better choices than we do.

STU: I understand that. I think there's a different route we can do. Georgia is obviously an emerging democracy. What do democracies produce, fast food restaurants. New innovations. They will ship the food back to us, create more cholesterol, then our doctors will solve the cholesterol will burn for fuel and we'll solve the economy.

DAN: We could just unilaterally invade the Bahamas and just live on the island for the rest of the

GLENN: Pat, I'm with that one. What do you say, the Bahamas?

GRAY: I'm good with Bahamas.

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

I can no longer relate to the modern pro-choice woman. I don’t want to shout my abortion. I want to pretend it never happened. Up until the SCOTUS leak, I had done a pretty good job of burying my 20-year secret. But the Roe v. Wade information earthquake triggered an eruption. I can no longer pretend to be ambivalent or leave it to blue-check pro-lifers to speak for me. My days of repeating the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra like a good, GenX libertarian feminist are over.

Some pro-abortion activists call their life-ending procedure “self-care,” like they just booked a hot stone massage or a facial at a spa. This is a polite euphemism many women tell themselves – not because we are cold-blooded killers, but because it’s how we survive. We HAVE to lie in order to justify what is actually taking place. Denial is a protective coating, a barrier from the truth. Remember, any woman born after Roe v. Wade has been programmed to believe that abortion is a natural-born right. “It’s legal; therefore it must not be evil. This is a medical procedure. Women do it every day.” Planned Parenthood has a nice way of describing abortion on its website: “A doctor uses a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus.” “Gently take the tissue out.” Benign euphemisms that wrap our hearts and minds in a suffocating cocoon. Benign euphemisms to keep us in line.

I was raised in the Bible Belt and to believe that sex before marriage was the gravest of sins. You’d be better off robbing a store by pistol than to be caught fornicating with a boy. And yet I did fornicate with a boy. No boy I’d ever be proud to bring around to my parents. I never gave him the option to talk me out of it. I just demanded he pay half for the procedure and never speak of it again. I told myself it would be easier to survive the hidden shame of the abortion than wear the shame of my sin on my belly for the next nine months.

...the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job.

I took the so-called “easy” way out at six weeks along and swallowed a pill I got from some abortionist who gave me the creeps. He was no medical saint like the one portrayed in “The Cider House Rules,” nobly saving women from coat-hanger abortions. The doctor in my story made a quick buck at the expense of terrified “good girls.” Years later I would learn he kept aborted fetuses in buckets and was under investigation for shady medical practices. I couldn’t leave his clinic fast enough, but at least I wouldn’t have to miss work or skip my college classes. I could finish my degree and still make my parents proud. How convenient. But the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job. Now I had to see a real obstetrician, get an ultrasound, and deal with the aftermath.

This doctor’s office was nicer. It had bright lights and pink walls. Although my doctor was professional, I still felt the quiet judgment in her voice. I refused to look at the image of my tortured fetus on the screen. I knew what it would mean if I did – my feminist career ambitions would lose the battle to my soul if I looked at that baby. The doctor told me the fetus was still viable but likely mentally damaged. The “kinder” thing to do would be to finish the job at an in-clinic abortion. End the fetus’ suffering and end my own self-torture. I woke up from anesthesia to learn the abortion was complete. It’s over so quickly, but the internal conflict hangs. And hangs.

You find weird ways to cope. Not long after, I discovered an abandoned robin’s egg, still perfectly intact. I wrapped it in a sock and carried it with me for over a decade. If I couldn’t do right by my own child, maybe I could keep this unhatched egg safe. Eventually, I had to come to terms with the fact that the bird egg was dead, and I got therapy. He was a good New York psychologist. Secular, liberal, tolerant. He helped me to forgive myself, but I always knew who I really needed to ask for forgiveness …

It’s easy for a young woman with all those stockpiled eggs in her ovaries to be pro-choice. She can toss away the miracle of life like a rotten banana or a bruised apple because it is easily replaced. It wasn’t until I was forced to confront the mortality of my own fertility that I felt the full force of my regret.

But I do not write this letter to achieve redemption or to be the new face of the pro-life movement. You will not see me pleading with women outside an abortion clinic. You will not see me protesting with a cutesy, homemade sign at the March for Life. You will not see me sparring on Twitter, confronting baby-killers with cold, hard facts. For now, you will not even know my name. I suppose this is not very brave, but my story is not complete and God’s work in me is in an active state. Mine is a modest mission: Maybe if I’m honest about my own wounds, I can help other women like me to heal. Maybe I can love the terrified, knocked-up woman in the Bible Belt who believes the best worst lies our society has ever told, better than any conservative talk show host ever could.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound. It’s naive to think we will fix this mess for the unborn overnight and deprogram men and women plugged into 50 years of slick, well-packaged lies. Slavery was legal in the U.S. for over 200 years before we fought a war to end it. And it was another 100 years before we ended state-sanctioned racism.

When it comes to the issue of defending innocent life, I know it’s hard to be patient. This is a clear battle of good vs. evil for many on the right, but you need allies like me – the former “safe, legal, and rare” pro-choicers who are afraid to come out of the shadows. Afraid to become a political prop in the culture wars, but willing to do the quiet missionary work in our back yards.

I hope for the day future progressives look back in horror at today’s progressives fighting to keep abortion on demand. I hope for the day the New York Times publishes the pro-life version of the 1619 Project. Maybe they’ll call it the “1973 Project,” “whose mission is to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of abortion and the contribution of the pro-life movement at the very center of our national narrative.”

Until that day, I want to help these women to be braver than me. To see beyond their impossible tomorrow. If I had allowed someone the chance to help me be brave, I might not have had the same successful career, but I would have a 20-year-old son or daughter in whom to invest this unexplained overflow in my heart.
