Glenn Beck: Heading for prison?




Border Patrol Fundraiser Shirt


All of Glenn's proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be donated to a legal defense fund for Agents Ramos and Compean.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Stop the music for a second. Tara Setmayer. I don't -- Tara, for the love of Pete, I just find out that I've been saying your name wrong for how long? Over a year.

SETMAYER: No, it's quite already. It's --

GLENN: No, it's not. I feel horrible.

SETMAYER: Oh, you shouldn't. People make that mistake all the time but I'm not that easily offended. But I would be more offended if you called me Tara.

GLENN: Tara Setmayer. I'm going to have to retrain myself. How did this happen?

SETMAYER: Listen, you say it however you feel comfortable, Glenn. Listen, the German version is Set-Meyer, the American version is Set-Mayer. That's quite all right.

GLENN: Here's the thing. You went out -- well, tell us what you've been up to lately.

SETMAYER: Well, I just recently returned from my fourth visit to Ignacio Ramos in prison, the border agent, one of the border agents who was wrongly imprisoned and, you know, it's been really, really difficult for all of us. The waiting game since the December 3rd appeal was heard. No one ever expected the decision to take this long. But we have to wait patiently and --

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

SETMAYER: Sure.

GLENN: You think that's actually good news?

SETMAYER: I do. And the reason I do is because if the appellate judges were just going to uphold the decision, they would have done that by now. That's an easy thing to do. They could have turned it over and said, no, we're not going to overturn anything here. If they were simply going to get rid of the ten-year gun charge, they could have done that already. But I think that they are really taking a good, long, hard look at all of the legal questions, and there were many, from the immunity agreement to the inability to question the drug smuggler on the second drug load to jury instructions. There were a lot of very technical legal issues that needed to be reviewed and it looks as though they are taking the time necessary to do that.

GLENN: Okay. So you went out to the -- you went out to the prison and he has been in solitary confinement now 439, 443 days, I think?

SETMAYER: Roughly, yes.

GLENN: Okay. And he has been -- he has been there and there are two things that you said off the air that I want to talk to you about.

SETMAYER: Okay.

GLENN: Are you willing to talk about them?

SETMAYER: Sure.

GLENN: Okay. First one is that me and people like me are responsible for him being in solitary confinement?

SETMAYER: Yes. Since last year after Mr. Ramos was assaulted in prison, I actually sat in front of the director of the Bureau of Prisons, Harley Lapin, Walter Jones, Congressman Jones and Congressman Ted Poe. We had a meeting with Harley Lapin and we said, listen, what do we need to do to get these guys into a minimum security camp because obviously medium or low security they could not reasonably exist without being attacked. And they told us the reason why they would not move them into a minimum security camp was for two reasons. One, the gun charge, the ten-year mandatory minimum, disqualified them from going into a camp because it was considered a violent crime.

GLENN: Sure.

SETMAYER: And the length of term wouldn't allow them to do. The second thing was I said to the director, wait a minute, you have waiver authority. You can move them into any status you choose. And he said, well, the problem is that the media attention brought upon these two men has really put them at risk because every time their names and faces are in the media, that makes them more known. We cannot assimilate them. So we want to do it quietly but as long as you keep doing this, we can't move them.

GLENN: So in other words, if you just help us, we'll help you.

SETMAYER: Right.

GLENN: We're really there -- I mean, if you'll just stop bringing it up so they can spend a quiet ten years in prison instead of trying to overturn this, we can help. But --

SETMAYER: That's right. And that was a year ago and we obviously didn't accept that. And fast-forward to last week when Mr. Lapin visited Mr. Ramos, which was only because our office in conjunction with Congressman Hunter's office reinquired about that and he had no plans on visiting Ramos during his trip to the Phoenix facility until he made an inquiry about it.

GLENN: For anybody who doesn't know, Lapin is the director of the Bureau of Prisons.

SETMAYER: That's correct.

GLENN: And so he didn't want to come, but he did eventually come and it's my understanding that it wasn't real warm, wasn't cordial. It was kind of like, I'm here, what do you want, what's going on.

SETMAYER: That's right. And as a matter of fact, when I was talking to Ignacio on Tuesday he said they put him in this room and he said it's called the fish bowl and he felt like he was on display like an animal in the zoo, you know. He was very uncomfortable and they kept him handcuffed. When the director came in, as he was coming in, he could overhear him say to one of the guards, "Where's this guy I'm supposed to meet with." You know, you've got to be kidding me. This is how serious these guys take this? You know, it's very easy to legislate this from your ivory tower in Washington, D.C. but I wanted to make sure that Harley Lapin who is in the same room, sat across from Ignacio Ramos to look into the eyes of an innocent man that he has confined to solitary confinement for a year and he had no choice but to do that.

GLENN: And it's my understanding, I got word yesterday from somebody else that Ignacio listens to the program every day.

SETMAYER: Yes, he does. As a matter of fact, now he has radio in his cell. So he's able to listen to talk radio and have some interaction with the outside world because he doesn't have any other time. He'll hear this today.

GLENN: Okay, good. So he's listening, listening on KTAR, our affiliate there. Ignacio, let me tell you something, my friend. Nobody is going to forget you. We're never going to let people forget you. And here's the next step I would like to take. Tara, I'm working on a special that, it was easier to get the special on Islamic extremism done than for some reason this is. And I know I made a promise to my audience that I'm going to do a border special. Well, you wouldn't believe. It's just constantly, hmmm, we're getting to -- yes, we're getting right to it and just can't seem to move that machinery. But it is going to be done and what I'd like to do and I've been talking to people about this and again it just seems like it's darn near impossible to get done. And you told me last night it is. I would like to do an in-prison interview with Mr. Ramos and you said -- you told me last night -- I said, hey, can you help me out on that? You said it will never happen. Why?

SETMAYER: Well, it just shows you how highly politicized this issue is. I mean, this is coming straight from the White House and people don't -- I tell people this all the time, that every week that goes by and every ounce of my being that has been poured into this, I realize how I say this is not a game. This is coming directly from the White House and the powers that be are very entrenched in this. The politicization of the border is just unbelievable.

GLENN: Let me tell you something, Tara. You know and I know that when we get McCain or Obama or Clinton, it's only going to get worse.

SETMAYER: You're right.

GLENN: Anybody that thinks George Bush is bad, and I do, anyone who thinks he's bad on the border, it is only going to get much, much worse.

SETMAYER: I wish I could paint a rosier picture for you but you are 100% correct.

GLENN: Okay. So can you help me and would you help me brainstorm because I have to tell you, if there are obstacles in my way -- I mean, I see Dateline meeting with murderers, people who are on death row. I see people who are far, far worse sitting in front of 60 Minutes and their cameras in the prison. I certainly would like to know who's responsible for stopping us. We'll do all it -- if you'll just walk us through, help us do all of the right things to make sure we do it all right but then I'm going to create a paper trail to show exactly who's stopping us from doing it because it is an absolute outrage if somebody for political reasons is stopping us from interviewing somebody in prison where they give this to murderers and child molesters, they will allow that to happen.

SETMAYER: I can tell you that they will use the excuse because there is an ongoing investigation and the case is still under appeal. You know, my boss just really quickly, he's on a -- an investigation with Oklahoma City with any foreign connection and he's been trying to get an interview with Ramsey Yousef who was World Trade Center one mastermind. We found some very interesting circumstantial evidence that may have connected him with Terry Nichols and my boss would like to just go and interview him. The Justice Department has said no, you do not as a member of congress have a right to interview a federal prisoner because there's an ongoing investigation. He's been in jail for ten years. So I'm just warning you ahead of time what you're up against, but I will do everything in my power to assist you guys with that and I think they're probably going to -- they're waiting for the decision from the fifth circuit.

GLENN: Sure. I understand that, and we'll wait for the decision and maybe everything will go away but if it doesn't go away, I'm not going to go away.

SETMAYER: Nor should you.

GLENN: No, not going to. Thank you very much, Tara. And Ignacio, love you, man. There's a lot of people who know that you are in that little box. Nobody has forgotten you. Thanks a lot, Tara.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...
