Vince Flynn: American Assassin




American Assassin: A Thriller


by Vince Flynn

GLENN: Vince Flynn is one of the guys that I call on from time to time and I just say, Vince, what do we you know, what are we facing? Vince and I had dinner can you bring him up, please? Vince and I had dinner, what, about two or three weeks ago, Vince?

FLYNN: That's correct. How are you feeling, buddy?

GLENN: I'm feeling good. How are you feeling?

FLYNN: You know, I'm coming and going here. We're figuring some things out. So

GLENN: Vince and I are both we had we had dinner a couple of weeks ago and we were just talking about life and where the world is headed, where the country is headed, and if you think I'm spooky, you should talk to Vince Flynn.

FLYNN: Glenn, my favorite part is my 9 year old daughter that's almost 10 that we brought with us to New York for her birthday and two hours into it I mean, she's completely unimpressed by what I do for a living and you, as well, and two hours into it, she just put her head down on the table and said, Enough.

GLENN: She really did. She put her head down on the table. She started feigning illnesses. She's, like, I think I'm having a heart attack. I should go to the hospital, I think. (Laughter.) It was

FLYNN: She's, like, could you two get off the ledge? You're scaring me.

GLENN: At one point Vince did look at me, like, Shhh, my 10 year old is here. You're spooking here, Glenn. I'm, like, that's all right. She can jump.

FLYNN: That's when we started talking about our idol, George Soros, the great patriot.

GLENN: He's spooky, isn't it?

FLYNN: He absolutely is.

GLENN: He's spooky.

FLYNN: He's loved in Britain. He's a huge hit in Britain.


They just love him.

GLENN: Really, after he collapsed the economy there?

FLYNN: Oh, they just what a great guy, not only a guy who implodes the British sterling and then makes billions on it, you know.

GLENN: You know, he says that he's not giving any money this time around to the Democrats, but didn't he give the gift that keeps on giving? I mean, he's do you have the facts and figures, yet, Joe, on how much money he gave to or his Open Source Society? Is it Open Source or Open Open Society Institute? How much money did they give to the Tides foundation? Do you have that number? So many different Soros' we're doing a I'm doing a whole show on George Soros soon and you

FLYNN: Well, you know, when we were at a certain person's house about four years ago and I brought him up and I said, What is the deal with this guy? How does anybody look at this guy other than anything as an enemy of the state? There is you know, there are different ways to wage war on a country and it's not just with guns and bullets. You know, it can often be financially and that's this guy's modus operandi. He does not bet on an economy succeeding. He doesn't bet on economy expanding. He likes to play the game get people running in one direction and then pull the rug out from under them and profit by it. He's not a good person, period, in my opinion. I don't want to can I get sued for saying that?

GLENN: I think that maybe Vince Flynn is wrong and he should have a nanobot stuffed up his nose.

FLYNN: I would like to be quoted for the record that that is my opinion, it is not reflective of Mercury Radio or Glenn Beck. (Laughter.)

GLENN: So, Vince gives me this scary this scary e mail last week. Do you remember the guy called up and said, Glenn, I think you're being poisoned, I think you've got nano it was I think you've got nanobots.

FLYNN: I was driving the road. I was laughing because I could just imagine Pat and Stu in the background and the faces they were making, thinking, please, don't put any more thoughts in his head. He's

GLENN: No, no, no. Do you know what? And I think not only do I have nanobots in me, I'm not being poisoned, but then you write me.

FLYNN: Yeah.

GLENN: And you're, like, Glenn, don't laugh that off.

FLYNN: Well, because there is this wouldn't be the first time it's been tried. Let me just put that it way.

GLENN: This is this is the example of Vince Flynn having too many friends in the CIA and having too much information.

FLYNN: Well, this is a Russian deal. The Russians have done this before. They've been caught doing this. You know, we remember what happened in the

PAT: With nanobots, Vince?

FLYNN: No, not the nanobots.

STU: I'm just making sure.

FLYNN: Pat, I have one request for the rest of the hour, if you could do this, because it's my one of my great thrills in life if you could only speak like Al Gore for the rest of the hour, I will

GLENN: He went off for 20 minutes and did it the other day. Pat's Al Gore is so great. I just laughed so hard.

FLYNN: They should have you save they should have you come save Saturday Night Live.

PAT: I don't think there's any saving Saturday Night Live.

GLENN: I don't think so, either. Take it out back and shoot it like a horse.

FLYNN: and Pat to come save Saturday Night Live, but remember the guy who was running for the President of the Ukraine.

GLENN: Yeah. Victor Yushchenko.

FLYNN: Who was he's this handsome, 6 foot 3 guy, gorgeous wife. They give him

PAT: He had movie star looks.

FLYNN: He did. And they give him something and he looked like he crawled out of the, you know

GLENN: Can I tell you something? You know, if I start to look like Victor Yushchenko, I think maybe then I'll go to the nanobot thing, but until that time

FLYNN: I'm just saying, you know

PAT: But, Vince, what was it? What was it that they gave him?

FLYNN: I'm not sure, but I think it was a radiation of some sort.

GLENN: Remember the

PAT: I thought maybe it was just from driving his SUV. Is that what it was?

GLENN: Hang on just a hang on just a second. We're going to have to take a break. We'll be back with Vince Flynn. He is the author of America he is the Tom Clancy does this make you uncomfortable, Vince, when I when I say something like this?

FLYNN: It's no Overton Window. That's all I'm going to say.

GLENN: Yeah. I know. He is the Tom Clancy of this generation. I don't know who Tom Clancy was of his generation. I don't know what they used to say about him, but he is the thriller author and he's got a new book out called American Assassin that is incredible. So, if you if you're looking for something to do, you know, spend it, you know go ahead. Create new nightmares with Vince Flynn and American Assassin. All right. Back with him in just a second.

(Out at 11:19 a.m.)

GLENN: Vince Flynn is with us. He is the author of an explosive thriller, torn from the headlines, American Assassin. Vince, what do you think is coming?

FLYNN: Mumbai, that's what they're going to try. You know, I've been warning for years on this one that, you know, the eventually they were going to figure out that airplanes are not easy to get at and take down and we've got all the security built up at the airports just on the other side of security and so where we're most vulnerable is and, again shall I've been telling you this for three, four years we're the most vulnerable at check in, where you've got thousands of people lined up at any airport at 7:00 in the morning on the other side of security, where, if you're lucky, two police officers with 40 caliber Glocks and what's there's a way to prevent this, by the way, because the you know, what I've been worried about is if you take one van load of these guys and they pull up in an airport shuttle and six guys jump out with automatic weapons and they come in and they've got thousands of people trapped in those security lines, no one's stopping them, but the good news is after 9 11 before funded the heck out of every every county, every city. They all have great SWAT teams now and they need to start deploying these guys in front of airports on a daily basis, at least three or four

GLENN: What about this? What about if you can no longer drive to the airport and you have to go to the airport naked?

FLYNN: (Laughter.) No. That's a bad idea, but

GLENN: I'm throwing it out here. I'm just

FLYNN: We have to mix things up. We've got to do things to throw them off. I mean, you're in New York all the time. You saw what it was like during UN Head of Summit week. They have these surges. They do all these things to disrupt these guys, and that's the way you have to think is we're not sooner or later we're going to

GLENN: We have an administration that won't even admit that these guys even exist, that there's a problem!

FLYNN: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, I just don't you know, I don't understand it. Now, let me ask you this, Vince: Do you think's crazy to say that it's the best thing if our Al Qaeda, the best thing you can do is attack overseas because it allows the United States to feel the real ramifications but it also helps the Barack Obama administration go up in ratings because they'll be seen as magnanimous, you know, helping the poor Europeans. To, the approval ratings will go up. If they hit here, this guy's approval ratings go through the floor because everybody knows that we're not doing what we're supposed to. We weren't doing it under Bush, but we're 100 times worse than they were then.

FLYNN: Yeah, well. One of the things where Europe is vulnerable is because of all of the EU travel. There's not as many obstacles. Once you get into the EU, you can go anywhere all of these immigrants from Pakistan and other others over there that have come into the EU and they have passports and they can get away with it. It's a little bit trickier in the Unites States. You know, you and I have discussed it's a big concern, you know, when one of these groups realizes that they can just send guys through Mexico. You know, that's a very, very serious problem.

GLENN: All right.

FLYNN: You know, these guys pulling up to a restaurant in Washington DC. We all could name the restaurants where, you know, dozens of senators dine every day at lunch and, you know, they open fire. There's things that we have to start doing and I think Al Qaeda absolutely wants to do it. What you're going to see now, Glenn, is a shift in tactics. They weren't they figured out that the IED's are too tough. All right? They're really hard to make work. Our guys here in the states go through years of training in how to make bombs work. So, what they're going to switch to, which we learned at Fort Hood, was guns and bullets. They learned the same thing from Mumbai and I just I don't want to sound all doom and gloom, but it's going to be really hard to bat a thousand against an attack like that.

GLENN: Okay. So, Vince, how is your book selling?

FLYNN: Really well.

GLENN: Okay.

FLYNN: Not as well as Broke will sell, which, by the way, I loved. Here's why I love it. I'm dyslexic. I'm a picture guy. I love that you have the graphs in there.

GLENN: Yeah.

FLYNN: Because you need that.

GLENN: Yeah.

FLYNN: To get into these discussions about how to fix this country, you first have to come to grips with how poorly these guys have run it. It's the biggest Ponzi scheme in the history of mankind. And Broke gives you the lesson of how poorly they have handled our finances.

GLENN: I mean

FLYNN: It's a it's an important book and I'm not just saying that because you're a buddy. I've been waiting for somebody to write a book that would spell it out in clear terms so you could show somebody, Hey, look, here's what they've done. So, (inaudible) in a couple of weeks. For now I'm enjoying some success.

GLENN: I Vince's book is the same. I haven't read it yet. Vince's book is the same. It's it's an important book. I (Laughter.)

FLYNN: Do you know what, before you go on Hollywood on me

GLENN: I know. And I promised you, too, that I will read your book and I am reading it. I just got sidetracked on some medical stuff. So, I haven't had a chance to read it, but I will read it, Vince, and the name of the book is American Assassin. Vince is just one of the best thriller writers in America today, another Vince Flynn classic, American Assassin, available in book stores everywhere.


 

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."
