Glenn Beck: Mexico out of control

Another Man's Sombrero

by Darrell Ankarlo

GLENN: We go to Darrell Ankarlo now who is in Phoenix with a couple of updates for us on the border now in Mexico. Things are completely out of control. On Meet the Press yesterday Gates said, you know what, we might start doing some joint military action.

ANKARLO: Isn't this nice? Hey, Glenn, how are you doing, man?

GLENN: Okay, I want to talk to you quickly about two things because we have the returning hostages that were held by FARC for so long, we have them in the studio and we want to get to them real quick.

ANKARLO: Oh, very cool.

GLENN: But I wanted to talk to you a little bit about a couple of things. First of all, who is organizing the protests in Phoenix this weekend, you know, saying stop cracking down on illegal aliens?

ANKARLO: Yeah, they would like to say that they're a hodgepodge of just American citizens, but there's no doubt that La Raza was definitely involved in this. And by the way, one of the signs -- the guy got arrested, by the way -- one of the signs said death to our pile equals freedom for America, yeah, that's what we need. By the way, these peaceful protestors, a couple of thousand of them through the streets on Saturday, several of them were taken into custody for guns, having dye packs, having fake police badges. You know, it's just a friendly protest in the streets.

GLENN: Yeah, the guy who had the gun that I read about this morning, he had a Los Angeles police badge.

ANKARLO: It looked like one, yes.

GLENN: They said he was taken away for the gun to see if he had a permit for it. I wanted to know was the badge real. Because he doesn't need a permit if he's got a badge.

ANKARLO: Right. It was not a real badge. It turned out, Glenn, to be a money clip of all things. But obviously he wanted to make it look that way. And there was another guy with a gun. He was not arrested, but they did take his gun away from him. So, you know, the peaceful just want to work here in America, protests apparently not quite as peaceful, I Bess.

GLENN: Darrell, I have to ask you this because this really bothered me. As you know, because we're friends and we've talked for a long time, there's nobody that has a bigger love for our military and our police and our sheriffs than me. I respect these guys. I think they're on the front lines. I don't think that they get the credit they deserve. I know in many cases they don't get the pay they deserve. They really are on the front lines of anything that could come our way. They were on the front lines on September 11th. But I have to tell you, the police -- I had a sergeant on the TV show last week and he was talking about the 300 and, what is it, 46 people that have been kidnapped that we know of that have been reported and he got on television and he got on television and he actually tried to make the case that, oh, well, that's -- you know, those are just illegal aliens.

ANKARLO: Right, right, yeah.

GLENN: So are they less than people because they're illegal aliens and if you would stop the illegal aliens from coming in, you wouldn't have the illegal alien problem where you have to have a special task force to stop the kidnapping and killing.

ANKARLO: The fun part of it, Glenn, is you get it, I get it. Janet Napolitano, our new Homeland Security director did not get it the whole time she was the top dog here in Arizona and she and Joe Arpaio, our sheriff, they have not seen eye to eye. So the fact that she's opening up investigations into Sheriff Joe, very intriguing to me. But what I told you a couple of weeks ago still stands true in this story. For every one that we know about, there's at least two to three behind the scenes that we don't know about. In San Diego a businessman's daughter gets kidnapped from a mall. She's taken down to Mexico and then they start asking for ransom and they said, "Look, here's the deal. We've got her in another country, you're not going to get your kid back unless you pay up the money." So what I've said all along is if this is left unabated, then we're going to have the collateral damage of just regular joes getting kidnapped off the streets. And we've had kidnappings in malls here, by schools here, by churches here and I don't care if they are illegals or not, eventually it's going to be Glenn or Darrell or somebody that they know.

GLENN: I don't even understand, I don't even understand the thinking. Is it just that, who's -- Darrell.

ANKARLO: Yeah.

GLENN: Who is at the top of this food chain that's the problem here? Because I can't believe the guys with the badges are like, "Oh, well, they're just illegals. So I'm just going to go fight the illegals now and I'm not really worried about, you know, kidnapping." That doesn't make any sense. It's making your whole community unsafe.

ANKARLO: You take a look at Los Angeles. It is a safety city, sanctuary city. San Francisco probably the worst in the country. New York, a sanctuary city. Phoenix up until about a year ago I would have called a sanctuary city. Now, the city moved in, the cops moved in, the sheriff moved in and made some moves that made it a little, a little, Glenn, more difficult for illegals to make their way around Phoenix proper. As a result we started to ratchet it up and we've had less illegal immigrants in the last year than we've had for years and years and years and years. So something is working. What frightens me is if we don't take this at its face value, then we're going to start seeing these people come back in and with them will be the riffraff. The coyotes are coming in, the cartels are definitely already here. You saw that on 60 Minutes last night. They did a great piece on America and if we don't stop the cartels now, we are in big time trouble. So all of that's playing around here in Phoenix, and finally people are starting to wake up to it.

GLENN: All right. Thanks, Darrell, I appreciate it.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
