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.

  • 4% of Active Cases are considered serious (requiring hospitalization) Steady from 4% Yesterday, and down from 19% in February
  • Note that 12% of US Confirmed Cases do currently require Hospitalization, but that number is expected to drop toward the international average as more people are diagnosed through testing.
  • US has 65,581 Confirmed cases and 1,036 Deaths, up from 54,941 cases and 784 Deaths yesterday
  • US has 428 total officially recovered, against 1,036 official deaths. Again, US numbers are expected to normalize toward international averages as more mild cases are diagnosed.

Brother, Can You Spare $2 Trillion? https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/25/coronavirus-stimulus-bill-updates-whats-in-the-2-trillion-relief-plan.html
  • US Senate Passes the largest economic stimulus bill in world history.
  • The Senate passes a roughly $2 trillion economic relief plan in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • It includes direct payments to Americans, strengthened unemployment insurance, loans to businesses small and large and increased health care resources for hospitals, states and municipalities.
  • Loans to small businesses are technically 'grants' covering payroll and rent payments. Grants do not have to be repaid.
  • It is unclear when the House will pass the legislation, though it aims to do so Friday.
Every American Will Get $1,200 in 2-3 Weeks, $2,400 plus up to 4 months Unemployment Benefits https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8152139/Every-American-four-months-unemployment-checks-earning-95-000.htm
  • Workers will get four months of unemployment pay plus additional $600 each.
  • Direct checks to Americans include 1,200 per adult making up to $75,000 a year before phasing out and ending altogether for those earning more than $99,000
  • That would result in $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, with an additional $500 per child for each household.
  • 'Our expectation is within three weeks we will have direct payments out,' Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said.
Cuomo Confirms What Introverts Have Long Known: Social Distancing Works https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/3077011/coronavirus-new-york-governor-andrew-cuomo-says-early-signs-show-social
  • Stringent density control measures may be working to contain the coronavirus in New York state, the epicenter of COVID-19 outbreak in the US, as the rate of hospitalization shows early signs of abating, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
  • New York, which has 19 million residents and nearly 31,000 infections, now accounts for 56 per cent of the confirmed cases in the country and more than 7 percent of the world's total.
  • Cuomo had ordered all but essential businesses to shutter by Sunday evening and residents to limit their outdoor activities and practice social distancing, effectively putting the state on pause.
  • On Tuesday, the number of hospitalized patients had doubled every 4.7 days, slowing from the rate of every 3.4 days on Monday and every two days on Sunday, Cuomo said at his daily coronavirus briefing.
  • "This is a very positive sign," he said. "The arrows are heading into the right direction."
Were the Beads Worth It? Mardi Gras Gets Blame for Big Easy Outbreak https://news.trust.org/item/20200325200808-oc1ie
  • "Mardi Gras was the perfect storm, it provided the perfect conditions for the spread of this virus," said Dr. Rebekah Gee, who heads up Louisiana State University's health care services division.
  • She noted that Fat Tuesday fell on Feb. 25, when the virus was already in the United States but before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and national leaders had raised the alarm with the American public.
  • "New Orleans had its normal level of celebration, which involved people congregating in large crowds and some 1.4 million tourists," Gee said. "We shared drink cups. We shared each other's space in the crowds. People were in close contact with catching beads. It is now clear that people also caught coronavirus."
  • New Orleans is on track to become the next coronavirus epicenter in the United States, dimming hopes that less densely populated and warmer-climate cities would escape the worst of the pandemic, and that summer month could see it wane.
  • Authorities have warned the number of cases in New Orleans could overwhelm its hospitals by April 4.
  • New Orleans is the biggest city in Louisiana, the state with the third-highest caseload of coronavirus in the United States on a per capita basis.
  • The growth rate in Louisiana tops all others, according to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette analysis of global data, with the number of cases rising by 30% in the 24 hours before noon on Wednesday.
  • On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump issued a major federal disaster declaration for the state, freeing federal funds and resources.
US Military Officially On No-Travel Lockdown https://news.trust.org/item/20200325203242-zgoc4
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper has issued a "stop all movement" order to the U.S. military halting travel and movement abroad for up to 60 days in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus through the ranks.
  • The measure is by far the Defense Department's most sweeping to date and will affect forces around the world.
  • Esper said in an interview that the order applied to all U.S. troops, civilian personnel and families, but noted that there would be some exceptions.
  • "The purpose is to make sure that we're not bringing the virus back home, infecting others, that we're not spreading it around the military," Esper said.
  • The order does include personnel who were to have been scheduled to be formally discharged from the Military in April or May.
  • Esper said one exception to the order would be the drawdown underway in Afghanistan, which will continue.
For The Best Darn Facemask In The Whole Wide World... https://www.foxnews.com/us/mypillow-other-us-companies-making-face-masks-to-meet-coronavirus-shortages
  • In Minnesota, the MyPillow company is refocusing 75 percent of its production to face masks for health care workers.
  • "We have the capacity to make a lot of things at big rates and we're going to be going hopefully from 10,000 units a day to 50,000 units a day in a very short period of time," CEO Mike Lindell told FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
  • The masks will go to hospitals in Minnesota as well as other states, he said. "Whatever it takes."
  • MyPillow worked with the Trump administration to get the proper design, Lindell told local Fox News 9.
  • Lindell joins literally hundreds of other companies in the US who have heeded the call of the Trump Administration to covert production to respirators, masks, ventilators, gowns and other needed medical equipment.
Further Evidence that COVID-19 Is Seasonal and May Spread Less in Summer Months https://news.yahoo.com/coronavirus-could-become-seasonal-top-us-scientist-001146451.html
  • There is a strong chance the new coronavirus could return in seasonal cycles, a senior US scientist said Wednesday, underscoring the urgent need to find a vaccine and effective treatments.
  • Anthony Fauci, who leads research into infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told a briefing the virus was beginning to take root in the southern hemisphere, where winter is on its way.
  • "What we're starting to see now... in southern Africa and in the southern hemisphere countries, is that we're having cases that are appearing as they go into their winter season," he said.
  • "And if, in fact, they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we'll get a cycle around the second time," Fauci said, referring to a 2nd cycle in the US late next fall in November or December.
  • "It totally emphasizes the need to do what we're doing in developing a vaccine, testing it quickly and trying to get it ready so that we'll have a vaccine available for that next cycle."
  • Fauci's comments suggesting the virus does better in colder weather than it does in hot and humid conditions follows a recent Chinese research paper -- still preliminary and awaiting peer-review -- that reached the same conclusion.

America Loses 500,000 Millionaires to COVID-19 - Bernie Sanders Elated https://www.msn.com/en-us/finance/markets/america-e2-80-99s-millionaire-ranks-shrink-by-500000-in-record-time/ar-BB11DrqN
  • At the close of 2019, there were an unprecedented 11 million American millionaires, a reflection of the longest bull market in history thanks to ultra-low interest rates and tax cuts.
  • Fast forward just a few months and it's a starkly different picture. The number of households in the U.S. above that threshold has dropped by at least 500,000 as of Friday, according to research firm Spectrem Group.
  • The tandem financial and health crises wrought by COVID-19 have disproportionately eroded the fortunes of the wealthy, who are more likely to own equities than the overall population.
  • At the end of 2019, the top 1% of households owned 53.5% of equities and mutual fund shares, according to Federal Reserve statistics.
  • The losses affected the rich at every level, from the mass affluent to those worth more than $25 million, according to the report. The wealth destruction at the very top has been especially steep, with the top 1% of households losing over $7.9 Trillion in wealth so far in 2020.
50% of Americans Living Under Shelter In Place or Home Quarantine Orders https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/more-than-half-of-us-population-will-be-under-orders-to-stay-home-by-midweek

  • A total of 13 states and at least 16 municipalities have enacted measures to keep residents inside their homes to prevent the spread of the virus, according to CNN.
  • That number, which amounts to 148,577,262 people, or 45% of the population, is expected to grow this week as five more states and nine more municipalities institute additional measures.
  • After the new orders go into effect, a total of 176,385,537 people, or 54% of the population, will be asked to stay home.
  • Many states and cities have not named a specific date, although some, such as LA County and the State of New York, have identified April 19th as the target 'end' of the at-home quarantine orders.
Uniformed Military Personnel Set Up Make-shift Morgue Outside NYC Hospital https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/makeshift-morgue-for-coronavirus-victims-set-up-outside-nyc-hospital/
  • In a scene reminiscent of Hollywood disaster movies (and more recently China, Italy and Spain), US Military personnel have set up a tent-based morgue outside of Bellvue Hospital in NYC.
  • Two refrigerated trailers were trucked to the site at 30th Street and the FDR Drive, along with a customized RV with a printed sign labeled: "MOBILE COMMAND CENTER — MEDICAL EXAMINER."
  • A team of men wearing camouflage fatigues and face masks set up a series of white tents that form a tunnel to a larger, white tent.
  • Other men wearing jackets that identified them as members of the NYPD and the city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner were also at the scene.
  • A source familiar with the operation said that additional refrigerated trailers would be brought to the site and that similar set-ups would be built up outside other hospitals.
  • "The plan is for them to be there and throughout the city," the source said, with as many as 6 temporary morgue locations near hospitals in New York City.
UV Rays Proven to Destroy SARS-Cov-2 Virus https://www.accuweather.com/en/health-wellness/what-infection-rates-in-iceland-and-australia-may-reveal-about-how-covid-19-could-spread-in-the-us/707057
  • The infection rate for COVID-19 is 22 times higher in Iceland as compared to Australia.
  • The research comes as scientists in Hong Kong demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is easily destroyed with UV light, just like all other known Coronaviruses.
  • "Direct exposure to UV light breaks down the membrane that houses the RNA of the virus," Dr Lon Kiang, lead researcher of the study said. Without the membrane, the virus cannot attach itself to healthy cells in the human body.
  • "This was expected, but is still certainly good news," he said.
  • Researchers said the findings may indicate that the virus will have a harder time spreading during warmer summer months, when more UV light strikes surfaces, including clothing and human skin, which may contain viral particles.
  • Scientists warned against directly and intentionally exposing skin to UV lights, which can cause burns and carries other risks, such as Cancer.

The mainstream media and the left are eager to report anything negative about President Donald Trump, even if it turns out to be Chinese Communist Party propaganda and disinformation.

On "GlennTV," Glenn uncovered some of the lies China's Communist Party is peddling to its own people and the rest of the world.

Diagnosed with pneumonia and coronavirus, Rio Giardinieri, 52, was admitted to the ICU at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. After more than a week without showing any improvement, doctors told him there was nothing more they could do. Desperately ill, Giardinieri started saying his "goodbyes" to family and friends.

That's when a friend told him there was a potential "cure" for coronavirus, an anti-malaria drug called hydroxycloroquine. Though doctors at the hospital said they couldn't prescribe hydroxycloroquine, they put Giardinieri in touch with an infectious disease doctor who authorized the use. The next morning, he says he woke up feeling "absolutely perfect."

Giardinieri joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to share his remarkable story and to weigh in on why he thinks information about this promising treatment for COVID-19 isn't being made more readily available.

"I'm not a scientist. I'm not a doctor. I can just tell you how I feel. And I know that I was not doing well. In my mind, I didn't believe I was going to be here by the morning," Giardinieri said. "I don't know what else to attribute [for recovery] but that medicine ... and it's not just me that it's worked for. There're many people this has worked for. So, you know, I certainly understand the hospital's position. They may not be too happy me telling the story. But the facts are the facts."
