Glenn talks with Darrell Ankarlo about his new book



Illegals: The Unacceptable Cost of America's Failure to Control Its Borders


by Darrell Ankarlo

GLENN: You know, I'm just I just got a copy of Darrell Ankarlo's book, Illegals, The Unacceptable Cost Of America's Failure To Control Its Borders. A very wise man says on the cover, "A real and raw look at our increasingly lawless southern border."

PAT: A wise man said that?

GLENN: Okay. I said that.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: But Darrell Ankarlo is a dear, dear friend of mine and is the author of Illegals, available in book store everywhere.

Hello, Darrell, how are you?

ANKARLO: Hey, Glenn, I am great. Good to talk to you and, yes, thank you for the wisdom on the cover of the book. I appreciate it, brother.

GLENN: See, wise. He's just confirmed it, Pat. So, we were just talking in the break and I was telling Pat that in the book, I mean, you've got the rape tree and photos that go along with it which is explain what the rape tree is.

ANKARLO: You know, most Americans aren't aware of this and all these people who call Americans who are angry about the illegal immigration issue, they call them haters and bigots and racists, all you have to do is stop and look at this one issue and you'll realize what a huge issue this is. Most this is the majority, Glenn, of people who come in from Mexico, women, they know they're either going to have to give up sex as a right of passage or they will be raped. Most of the time when they're raped, their underwear are taken off their body and hung from trees as kind of, you know, a word of warning to those who follow, this is what will wait for you. So, when people talk about human rights violations, which, you know, I sort of get, we have to stop and look at this and say, Why aren't you going to the streets and protesting this? Not a word is said.

PAT: Now, Darrell, a lot of people on the left call that an urban legend, that there are no rape trees. You've actually been there, seen them, photographed them, right?

ANKARLO: Yes. Been there, seen them. You'll find pictures in the book of the rape tree.

PAT: And if you talk to and if you talk to law enforcement, border arguments and county sheriffs, they will tell you the same thing, they exist, it's real.

ANKARLO: Hey, Pat. I didn't believe it when I was first told. I was actually out in an area in the desert and I did not believe it at all and so I did not go on the air on my radio show with it at the time and I went to different border patrol agents and I wanted to find out from them personally.

PAT: Yeah.

ANKARLO: So, I just asked, what is a rape tree, and they all said the exact same thing. Yet, no one in the news is talking about it.

GLENN: Here's the I don't know if you can pick this up on the web cam, but there's a picture of the rape tree there and on the next page is

PAT: Underwear all in it.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: Hear is Darrell standing out, you know, taking the underwear off the tree with a stick, and demonstrating. You were on the border for how long, Darrell?

ANKARLO: We spent about nine days. We went into Mexico and, of course, they just say, where are you from? You say America and they say come on in and we spent several days inside of Mexico talking to the various people and I wanted to know, you know, the lay of the land, why are you wanting so badly to come into America. And when I got into the heart and the soul of the Mexican people, you know, those who were earning any kind of a living said, look, I'm happy where I am. Those who were earning the 4 or $5 a day for a 16 hour day said because you're the land of opportunity. And, you know, Glenn and Pat, when I stop and think about this, I spend more on a big Mack and, you know, a No. 1 special at McDonald's than the average Mexican makes in a day. So, they do look over and they say, you know, why can't I have a piece of that dream?

GLENN: Especially since the Mexicans were here long before the founders ever came or those pill grips, we found out from last week that the President informed us that even when the Pilgrim's were just thinking about coming over here, the Mexicans had been here for a long time.

PAT: Uh huh, uh huh.

ANKARLO: It's very important that we have people in the know. This same President said today that just throwing money at, you know, our problems in public schools, you know, it's not going to change very much and I stop and I say, well, wait a minute. In Texas listen to this, guys in 1 in 3 third graders in Texas is either an illegal immigrant or the child of an illegal I am grant and you say, well, that's Texas. It's a border state. Nationwide the average is 1 in 4. Now, if you stop and think about that, that's a ton of extra teachers, extra education that's required to bring these people in from a foreign country.

PAT: That's a figure that's I mean, that's astounding.

ANKARLO: Yeah.

PAT: Nationwide it's 1 in 4?

ANKARLO: 1 in 4 nationwide, 1 in 4 in Texas alone. And here in Arizona, get these these are actual I swear to God, these are actual signs that are up and, Glenn, I'm sure on your TV show you probably mention it. One is and I quote active drug and human smuggling area, end quote. The other is armed criminals in smuggling vehicles traveling at high rates of speed. These are not just five minutes from Mexico. These are about 25 minutes south of Phoenix, Arizona.

GLENN: Do you have pictures of those?

ANKARLO: I don't have those pictures with me, no. I can get pictures.

GLENN: Yeah.

ANKARLO: I can send them to you.

GLENN: Get some pictures.

ANKARLO: Absolutely. I would be more than happy to.

GLENN: I tell you, Darrell, you have done an awful lot of work on this. This has been your issue for years and years and years and it's just getting worse and worse. I'm concerned that the next two years are the most dangerous two years in the history of the republic because of all of the mounting pressures and all of the things and our border being wide open. When you were doing your research for this book, did you see anything that shows that we have nefarious people that are more politically nefarious coming across the border, either Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, or even those from Venezuela that are coming across and wishing us ill?

ANKARLO: Well, if you go down to Venezuela, you know, if you go down to Mexico's southern border, take a look at Mexico's laws and in the first chapter of the book, that's all the first chapter is about. It talks about SB 1070, which is the Arizona law that everybody says is so wrong. That's why we've got 21 states that have now said we're going to adopt the same law or something similar and then I compared to the Federal law, which is almost identical. The problem, identical law that is put together by politicians in Washington is not being taken care of at all. Nobody is enforcing it. Then I look at Mexican law. Southern border of Mexico, if you come over, you're arrested, you're thrown into a Mexican prison, or in many cases, you are shot and that's not urban legend. That's fact. When I was coming back into America and my team was with me, one we ran into a drug car tell situation and my son Adam was a Marine at the time and he got us through that situation because I had no clue what was happening but the second time, when I was actually coming into America within a with inside of a border patrol area, we had Mexican military stop us, AK 47's pointed straight at us, and I sent you guys a copy of a video and this is it's not for publication. It's what we called B roll for TV, but you'll see us trying to get through a town called El Sasabe and what the Mexican military had done was slow us down so the drug cartels could stop us in El Sasabe and execute us and thank God, we were A, in a Jeep and, B, we had, you know, military people in the car who said, look, we've got to get back to the American side or we are, you know, dead in the water. So, when you talk about nefarious, Glenn, there is no doubt that there are several different hostile people who can come through the Mexican border and we will not have a clue who they are because they blend in so well. And I talk about that in one of the chapters of the book Illegals.

GLENN: Yeah. In the chapter with the rape tree you show a house that is it's sealed so nobody can escape. You show blood stained jeans and the different things that you found in these houses. America, if you care about what's happening on our border and you're wanting the truth action you're not getting the truth, there are no journalists that are going down there. I mean, somebody wants to win a Pulitzer, you did what Darrell did and you go down and you look at the truth of what's happening on the border and then you tell America the truth as Darrell did. The name of the book is Illegals, the unacceptable cost of America's failure to control its borders. It is in book stores everywhere now and you can find it at Amazon.com. Grab it from a great friend of mine and a guy who has been studying this for a very, very long time, Darrell Ankarlo, Illegals. Darrell, we'll talk to you again, my friend.

ANKARLO: Absolutely, Glenn. Thanks a lot.

GLENN: God bless you. Bye bye.


 

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
