Glenn Beck: Navy Seal update...


Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10


by Marcus Luttrell

GLENN: Let me go to Marcus Luttrell. Hello, Marcus.

LUTTRELL: Hey, number 3.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

LUTTRELL: I'm doing all right.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Do we have Don West on? Hang on. Can you conference them real quick? Put Marcus on with Dawn. Dawn is in front of the Navy base in Virginia now.

DAWN: Yeah, I'm standing here with Josh. He is the one that created this on Facebook to show the support of the Navy SEALs. We're outside of the NOV base.

GLENN: What's happening? How many people do you have there?

DAWN: I would say there's 150 to 200 people. We've got the local helps, we've got the Hampton Roads tea party. Again Josh, he flew in on a plane last night all the way from Texas. We have folks from North Carolina, Texas, Vegas, the one five, Mr. McCabe, I guess it's Mc C A B E, he's showing support for his son. Yes, it's turned out to be pretty good here at the base.

GLENN: Hang on just a second, Dawn. We have Marcus on the other line. Marcus, can you explain to anybody who's not following this on what exactly is happening?

LUTTRELL: Right now we've got some Navy SEALs on trial for dereliction of duty.

GLENN: Hang on.

LUTTRELL: Hang on. Put her on hold.

LUTTRELL: You can't jump to conclusions. I mean

GLENN: Is there a chance, Marcus, that these guys deserve, deserve, that they are holding back information? I mean, I'm sure you've seen the reports. I had several reports come out this weekend. The Navy released some information. Did you get a chance to see any of the stuff from the special operations command?

LUTTRELL: Yes, sir.

GLENN: Is there, is there anything in here that you would read that you would say, well, hang on just a second; I mean, it's a little more than that; you know, he willfully failed the safeguarded detainee. Well, yeah, it's a dirt bag terrorist.

LUTTRELL: You know, none of that has anything to do with it. That's all crap. Yeah, whatever. The guy's a terrorist. It's our job to move one guy, you know, move him from one place to another but like I'm saying, you know, nobody knows what was going on inside that truck besides the guys that were in there. They can't Monday morning quarterback them. I think that's going on is the fact that when they were just, when the conversation came up like, hey, what happened to these guys, the frogs that were transporting him didn't come clean and say, hey, look, this is what happened, this, that and the other.

GLENN: No, no, here's the statement. Because I have the papers. You know, these are the papers they were charged with here. And one of them in fact, several of them made the statement, "I did not see anybody abuse or mistreat Mr.... and then the name is blocked out and redacted."

LUTTRELL: Yeah.

GLENN: Or words to that effect, where that statement is completely and totally false. It was known by the officer at that time to be false.

Well, I mean, there's a difference between, did somebody punch him in the face, and, did you see anybody abuse him. No.

LUTTRELL: Right.

GLENN: I saw my friend punch him in the face, but he deserved it.

LUTTRELL: Yeah, exactly. If you smack the crap out of somebody for acting up or whatever, then, you know

GLENN: That's not abusing.

LUTTRELL: If you are not there, then you don't know what's going on. So I mean, this is all I mean, this has blown way out, I mean, this has gone too far.

PAT: I mean, they were in the back of a truck, too. He could have the terrorist could have fallen into somebody's fist. He might have accidentally just bounced into somebody's fist.

LUTTRELL: And he's like, you know, hey, I remember you guys, didn't I drag one of your guys through the street and hang him up from a bridge and burn him? That guy would still have my fist permanently implanted into his face.

PAT: As well he should. He should, yeah.

LUTTRELL: You know, so I mean, this has dragged on from bringing these guys out of the field and then into the courtroom now is just absolutely stupid, you know. It's just dumb.

GLENN: Is there a possibility, Marcus? You know how these things work. I don't know how the military system works. You know how this works. Is there a possibility that we're going to find more about these guys that we didn't know?

LUTTRELL: Maybe inside the community itself.

GLENN: Okay.

LUTTRELL: It's not going to make it out, though.

GLENN: Is there a possibility that the Navy just backs down from this?

LUTTRELL: I'm not sure that it's the Navy that's doing all this.

GLENN: Well, who is doing it? Special operations command. Central command. Is that Tampa or is that

LUTTRELL: Yeah, that's just not frogs in general. That has that's SOCOM itself. That's all special forces meaning, you know, Army, MARINE, everybody.

GLENN: So who's doing this? Is that who's doing this, do you think?

LUTTRELL: Like you said, it's SOCOM itself. I couldn't exactly tell you who's heading up the, you know, who's

GLENN: Is there a possibility this comes from Washington?

LUTTRELL: Everything comes from Washington.

GLENN: Not good things.

LUTTRELL: Yeah. I mean, where do you think? I mean

PAT: Is there a possibility it comes from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington?

GLENN: No, what I'm asking is

PAT: No, that's

GLENN: No, what I'm asking is this, you know, what are your thoughts on that this is real, that there was something to look at that would have been looking at by any president who, you know, it should be looked at? And how much

LUTTRELL: It's nuts. It's really stupid. That's what it is.

GLENN: Because that's what it feels like but, you know, I want to give Washington the benefit of the doubt here that, you know, that they are still, you know, on the right side of things. But I can't see it here. So that's what I'm trying to get to you get from you is, please tell me that there's something here that gives you a ray of sunshine that, no, we're not just selling our Navy SEALs out and throwing them into a meat grinder while we're putting all of our other soldier and airmen and naval officers through a meat grinder over in the Middle East.

PAT: And like what we did with the Pendleton Eight Marines, threw them under the bus and they were all exonerated.

LUTTRELL: I mean, this is obviously my opinion, you know, but, one, if it was something other than punching that guy, if this happens to be something other than, you know, slapping that terrorist around, then that's different.

GLENN: Yeah.

LUTTRELL: And also making this thing a public spectacle like it is, you know, and dragging this out into the public, you know, Navy SEALs, you know, you shouldn't even have known. Like I said earlier, we're the ones that grabbed this guy. It shouldn't have made front page, you know, paper that Navy SEALs did anything, much less dragging us, you know, across the mud into the courtroom and all that crap because that trickles down to other military forces like SEALs through the mud. If they can't do something, you know, we definitely can't do hardly anything. You can't even walk out in the streets anymore. And I think there's a protocol out there that says you can't even engage the enemy unless you are absolutely engaged by them. You can't do that unless you get shot at, unless they are shooting directly at you. You can't take the preinitiative to take those guys out.

GLENN: You tell me what the difference is between what we're doing to the Navy SEALs and what we've been doing to the CIA. I don't see it. I don't see a difference.

LUTTRELL: Yeah, no difference now.

GLENN: I mean, this is we're just taking anybody who actually stands up for us, anybody who is doing the hard work, we're just taking them out one by one, just clubbing them in the knees. This is administration is the Tonya Harding of military presidents. I mean, he's just taking the military and just clubbing them.

LUTTRELL: Yeah, I mean, you know, if you are not going to let us do our job, like I mean, and the funny thing is like nobody everyone's so interested in what's going on over there. And I've said it before. Like, if you want to know every little minute detail, grab a rifle and come over and help fight. Otherwise, you know, worry about the economy. Worry about, you know, whatever's going on over here. That's, you know, that's the big picture kind of thing. But if you are going to get in our business and make judgments and stuff like that when you don't have any idea what's going on or weren't exactly there, then you need to pull us back out of the water. I mean, there doesn't need to be any troops over there at all. You can't have it both ways. You know what I mean?

GLENN: Yes. And that's why I have that's why I've recently come back and said pull our troops out. Because these people are going to try to have it both ways, and it's going to get people like you killed.

LUTTRELL: Yeah, I mean

GLENN: It's not right. Or, you know, it will get people like you in jail for doing what they asked you to do.

LUTTRELL: Right.

GLENN: It's not right.

LUTTRELL: I'd really, I'd rather be over in the battlefield and be killed over there than be in the court system here.

GLENN: Marcus, how are you feeling today?

LUTTRELL: I'm good, hanging in there.

GLENN: Good. I love you, man. I'll talk to you soon.

LUTTRELL: Love y'all.

GLENN: All right, bye bye. Marcus Luttrell.

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.
