The Argument Against Idiots: The Border: Part Deux...or is it Troi?

How to win the argument de jour with logic and facts



 


The issue:

'The Border: Part Deux...or is it Troi?'

What the liberal whiners say:

'Well it's nice to see that you right-wing racists have been silenced on the border finally! Even your own party knows the border is not a problem.'

'Thanks to the Democrat led Congress who got the "Merida Initiative" passed, we're sending $1.4 billion to Mexico to help them with their battle against the drug cartels. The first $500 million has already been sent'

'All of that violence is happening on the Mexican side of the border, we don't have those problems on the U.S. side'

'You right wing kooks are always talking about these scary "Zetas"...ooh! Some little group of what, 70 trained commandos, big deal!'

Your winning, logical, reasoned arguments

1. Yeah, I guess we got carried away just because there's been between 70-100 U.S. citizens kidnapped in Laredo alone...more than in all of Iraq. According to Laredo Sheriff Rick Flores, who is a DEMOCRAT...not ONE of those Americans has been returned or recovered.

2. Yes, that's right. The fabulous "Merida Initiative." The initiative Mexican President, Philipe Calderon spoke of so eloquently, when he told Congress..."I cannot accept any submission or subordination…Give it to me. And give it to me without conditions!" Merida has been GREAT so far. Two weeks ago, they found ELEVEN beheaded bodies in MERIDA, the very city where they signed the agreement, and a 12th beheaded body was found about 50 miles away. All 12 beheadings were attributed to the drug cartels. I wonder how many they would've found if we hadn't sent that initial half billion dollars?

3. I think the families of the kidnap victims, and the U.S. citizens who've been murdered by the cartels in Texas, Arizona and California would argue with that. You might want to watch the "History Channel" special Rusty Fleming just made (he's the same person who made the movie "Drug Wars"). In this upcoming History Channel special, Rusty interviews an 18 year old American citizen who's in prison for multiple murders. He was recruited by the Mexican drug cartel commandos, the Zetas, while he was at Laredo Junior High. Laredo Junior High is, of course, in Texas...which is in the United States of America. He was 13 when they recruited him. He admits to over 40 murders...the first, when he was just 13 years old. Many of his victims were on OUR side of the border. The Zetas are recruiting more and more American kids, tempting them with huge sums of money, because they speak English and can get past the border check points.

4. Unfortunately, the original 70 have now become THOUSANDS. Here's what the FBI said about them: "Los Zetas are not only holding off the Mexican army, federal and state police, but are now seen as "an emerging threat to the United States". They are heavily armed with military fire-power, have their own helicopters for air evacuation, their own private jets, their own hospitals, doctors and clinics. They have taken over the Gulf Cartel, infiltrated the Mexican military, the Mexican police, and have set up operations in at least 6 U.S. states...Texas, California, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. But I guess we shouldn't be worried, right?

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
