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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
