Glenn Beck: Arizona mystery lights


Mystery lights reported over Phoenix

GLENN:  Okay.  Let's go to Larry Gaydos because there is another story out there.  We can talk about the gas prices, et cetera, et cetera, or the real important story, the aliens.  Larry is here from KTAR in Phoenix.  Larry.

GAYDOS:  Glenn.

GLENN:  Yesterday, a big election was going on and yet the Drudge Report led with a picture of the supposed alien ships that were above Phoenix.

GAYDOS:  Yeah, I'm totally moving out of Arizona.  This happens like every year and I'm freaking out over here.  I'm in a stinking bunker.  I don't even know who won Pennsylvania yesterday.  We've got red lights in the guy, Glenn Beck.  We have four red lights that were hovering over Phoenix.

GLENN:  Did you notice that it looked like a thumb and three fingertips?

GAYDOS:  I did not.

GLENN:  Look at the picture again.  It was like there was a thumb and three fingertips and I thought, you know, only Fred Flintstone has three fingers and a thumb, or aliens.

GAYDOS:  Listen.  I heard it was a trapezoid, it looked like a square, it looked like a diamond, it moved in the sky.  These red lights, they started disappearing one by one.  I do my radio show out in Phoenix.  All these people start calling me.  It's ridiculous.  It happens every month it seems like in Arizona.  We're like the epicenter for the aliens.

GLENN:  Okay.  So you are -- you were actually on the air and it was dark and they saw -- people started seeing these lights in the sky.

GAYDOS:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Did they hover and then move away or did they just hover?

GAYDOS:  All right, this is what I got because I was doing my show.  So I didn't see the lights.  All I knew is that, you know, our phones out in Phoenix at KTAR started completely blowing up.  People wanted to know what was going on.  I'm sitting on the air.  I was talking about Pennsylvania.  I had Hillary by 7.  I was a little bit off.  But apparently they were telling me there were red lights, there were four of them in the north Phoenix sky.  We had a couple of our reporters who called in first and said, hey, something's going on.  I thought they were boosting it up a little bit.  How did I know?  They said they were hovering and they changed shape and people were wondering what it was and that's kind of the information that we had.  I didn't know if it was a Klingon ship or what.  I didn't know.

GLENN:  They have the invisibility cloak.

GAYDOS:  That is true, they have the cloaking device.

GLENN:  Except for lights apparently.  So what are they now saying it is?

GAYDOS:  Well, no explanation from, like, the Deer Valley Airport, no explanation from Sky Harbor, there were no jets flying at Luke Air Force base, the FAA doesn't know what it is.  We got a report late last night, and you'll like this, Glenn.  One dude who lives in Phoenix, some witness, says it was his neighbor.  He says that his neighbor launched several helium balloons with all these flares and, you know, as the balloons get higher, the harder it is to tell what they are but most people don't know what's that it was.  There was no noise from these lights, they were very high in the sky and they are saying no way was this a weather balloon, that's at least one report.  So I have no idea.  We've got illegal aliens in Arizona and we've got little green men watching us in the sky.

GLENN:  Well, wait a minute.  Hang on just a second.  Let me ask you this.


GLENN:  Have you thought of the idea, because I know that where they are building the border fence, it is getting harder and harder to get across.

GAYDOS:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Has anyone considered the idea that just for a better life, small Mexican midgets had flares and a balloon so they could see where they were going and they were flying and floating over that wall and then they are like, oh, crap, the wind caught me; where am I now?  They lit the flare and they are like, oh, Phoenix.  Is that a possibility?

GAYDOS:  See, this is why you're syndicated.  This is why --

GLENN:  I mean, I'm a thinker.  I'm not a --

GAYDOS:  This is not bad, I will tell you.

GLENN:  I'm just saying.  I'm just saying.

GAYDOS:  You're saying that we have folks from Mexico that --

GLENN:  Isn't that more logical really than aliens?

GAYDOS:  I don't know.  I'm taken aback by how brilliant this is now.  This is my whole first few hours right now.

GLENN:  It is more, it is more believable, Larry, than somebody, you know, saying, yeah, I just took some flares, tied them to some balloons; I was having fun.  I mean, what kind of --

GAYDOS:  You know what?  Remember what happened 11 years ago in Phoenix because I've been here 12 years.  We had that Phoenix lights thing, all right?  And that was about, you know, 10 lights.  They were up in the air for three hours.

GLENN:  What do you really think it was, Larry?  What do you really think it was?

GAYDOS:  I have no idea.  I think your idea's probably the most feasible.  I think you're probably right.  I would hate to think that it's like Darth Vader coming to eat my brain.

GLENN:  Oh, come on, man.  Have you been watching -- you know why you think that way?  Because you haven't been watching the election.  You didn't see what -- you weren't following what was going on.  I welcome Darth Vader to come and eat my brain!

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
