Glenn Beck: Close Guantanamo Bay?




RELATED VIDEO

GLENN: Cut the music off for just a second. I want to set the tone here for this and I want you to know if you have children in the car with you that you should turn the radio off just for a few minutes because what you are about to hear is extraordinarily shocking. It is quite frankly makes me rethink my position. You know that I am a supporter of Guantanamo. I am somebody who supports not torture and, you know, hey, just everybody let's go torture people. But in a situation like you see on "24" where we think that there is a nuke in a city and we have some people that we think have some information and there is a time, a ticking clock. You know what? I have quite honestly, up until now, been for it. And then this video and audio is released. Can we put enough disclaimers on this in the newsletter today, Dan? I don't want to include this in the newsletter at GlennBeck.com unless it has explicit warnings.

DAN: Well, we can do the same thing we did, if you remember with the severed head photo that we -- we can do the similar setup of that.

GLENN: I want something that has a significant warning on this because this is describing what happened to one prisoner in Guantanamo. This is actual audio of the torture that was happening again. This is -- I am not making this up. This is a 21-year-old that went to Guantanamo at 16 because he threw a hand grenade and killed a U.S. soldier and this is the audio just released at Guantanamo. It is not for the fainthearted. I think I've given it enough warning. Here it is.

(Audio playing).

GLENN: Okay, stop for just a sec. Stu, can you translate here? What is he saying?

STU: He's saying, Dan, I think has the --

DAN: I don't think it's the exact transcript but basically what he's saying is he's lifting up his shirt and saying wounds he received in Afghanistan but he has not received medical and he's been asking for medical and he's just not getting the medical help. He's not healing well.

GLENN: I'm going to try to go back in and listen some more. Go ahead.

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Stop just a second. The voice there is of a foreigner. He's a Canadian and one of the damn people who are torturing this man relentlessly. As you now hear the victim received wounds in Afghanistan and has not received medical treatment. And you can see the nonopen, nonseemingly wounded man there with his shirt up. And then you hear the interrogator say, "I'm not a doctor, but it looks like you're doing fine." And then it continues.

(Audio plays.)

GLENN: He's crying. Do you hear him crying? Stop, stop, stop. Hear the Guantanamo victim. Thank God that those who are against Guantanamo have released this audio. By the way, that's important to know it's not our government releasing this audio. This is from a hidden camera. Thank goodness somebody took a hidden camera. Now, now we hear the victim say, I have no eyes, I've lost my eyes. And it gets worse from there.

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Stop. Stop, did you hear that? "I've lost my eyes. I've lost my feet.' We have poked this man's eyes out and cut off his feet. And what does the interrogator say?

(Audio plays).

GLENN: Stop, stop. Trying to make it sound like those eyes that are in his head are the eyes that he started with and the feet that he has weren't cut off, weren't some sort of governmental plastic feet but the actual feet that God gave him -- sorry, Allah gave him -- and what does he say? No, your feet are still there, your eyes are still there, only to hear the pore torture victim say, "No, no, they're not." How long is this going to continue. How do we live with our self? How do we tell people that they have eyes when they clearly know they don't have eyes? When we say, you've got feet. Look, I can see your feet, everybody can see the feet, look, it's going to be on the hidden video. You've got feet. Look at your feet. And they know they don't have feet. How much longer will this country tell people with feet that don't believe they have feet that they have feet! I hope somebody in the media, I hope, damn it, somebody in the media will cover this.

VOICE: Tonight on frontline you've heard the shocking allegations from Guantanamo Bay but you haven't heard them all. Frontline's latest investigation reveals the most shocking allegations yet, so shocking it will shock your body to the core and leave you in a state of... shock. Not only did guards on several occasions refuse to smile at the terrorist prisoners, they even gazed at them with apparent disdain. Nutrition is also being denied. Frontline interviews prisoners whose repeated requests for a large box of doughnut holes from the local Dunkin' Donuts fell on deaf ears even though the officers' records indicate they can hear just fine. Frontline learned that many times they even asked with a polite, "Pretty please." Perhaps the most shocking revelation of all is the fact that this blatant disregard for human rights is seeping out of Guantanamo Bay and dripping back into the United States. Frontline has exclusive videotape evidence of police officers in uniform and off duty not being overly friendly. That's right, some of the video clips even show these so-called protectors of peace not holding doors, failing to use a blinker signal and almost littering. It's all coming out.

Plus, more torture on the home front. How secret government covert agents are planning to torture tens of thousands of people in 350 movie theatres nationwide tomorrow. How will they do it? Hint: With a pasty wide loud mouth conservative talk host who boasts a proclivity for fatty foods and the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It's all tonight on Frontline.

GLENN: All right, you sick twisted freak. We are in the movie theatres tomorrow night, live performance, 350 theatres nationwide. You can grab your tickets online at GlennBeck.com. That, and then we're also in Dallas tomorrow night. That's where the live performance is happening and you'll see it in movie theatres. And then Friday you can see it live and in person in Houston and Saturday we wrap up the tour in the Columbia.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
