Halliburton Rape

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: All right. Now, just to show you how fair and biased I am because I am biased, I'm a conservative but I try to be fair. And to be fair we've got to talk about another story that's coming out of Houston, Texas. Let me get my friend Pat Gray on, does mornings at KSEV. Pat, this is an outrageous story with Halliburton.

GRAY: Yeah. Oh, it's incredible, incredible. First of all, I'm a little surprised that you are besmirching bloggers. Are you aware of what you need to do to become a blogger?

GLENN: Yeah.

GRAY: You have to have a computer and a keyboard and Internet access. So I'm a little surprised at your attitude.

GLENN: Well, not everybody has Internet access and if we could get somebody like Hillary Clinton in, everybody would.

GRAY: See, that's the thing.

GLENN: It's a basic human right.

GRAY: The KBR situation is unbelievable. There's a young woman from Houston who went with -- this was when Halliburton and KBR were part of the same company. They've divested themselves of each other since. But she went as a contractor to Iraq and the first or second day, I mean, it was right after she got into the green zone, she was brutally raped. First of all, she was drugged.

GLENN: Yeah, she was drugged. And when she woke up, she had bruises all over her, she had been --

GRAY: She was bleeding.

GLENN: Yes, she was vaginally and anally raped and apparently by several men for an extended period of time.

GRAY: Yeah. So she actually, she went to the doctor and got a rape kit done and right after coming out of that, they apprehended her and put her in a shipping container with a bed and had 24-hour watch on her and would not let her leave, would not let her make a phone call back to the States. So finally one of the guys that was guarding her, one of the employees loaned her his cell phone and she called her dad back home in Houston and, you know, she said, Dad, I've been raped; I don't know what to do; I'm in a container, they are holding me here, I'm not able to leave, I'm a prisoner. He immediately, of course, went nuts as any dad would and contacted his congressman who happens to be Ted Poe.

GLENN: Great guy, one of the -- yeah, I've got to tell you Ted Poe is one of the best guys in congress. You want justice, you can go to Ted Poe. You want to know a straight -- you want to know the straight story, you go to Ted Poe. I like Ted.

GRAY: We were kind of marveling. Any story that is really relevant and critically important to the United States right now, Ted Poe is kind of on the leading edge on and he's there on this one. And so we had him on our show today and we asked him about whether or not, you know, I mean, are the facts, do they seem to be real? Does her story pan out.

GLENN: Yeah, the only thing that concerns me, and I'm -- you know, I don't want to judge her because it seems like everybody involved backs her up. But the only thing that concerns me is she did sell the rights to her story to a movie company.

GRAY: She did. She sold the screenplay, but that wasn't until I think September of this year, August or September or something. And so she had waited. I mean, what we thought, I knew the story happened a long time ago because Halliburton and KBR haven't been together. They divested. They divested a while ago. It's been six, eight months. So I knew it was quite a while ago. So I asked Ted Poe about it and he said, oh, yeah, this happened two and a half years ago. And we were shocked that in two and a half years, there's been no arrest, there's been no investigation apparently.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. No investigation, no investigation?

GRAY: He went to the State Department, he went to -- and since they couldn't get anything done with the State Department, they went to the Justice Department and nobody's done anything. If they have, Ted Poe said they certainly haven't made him or her family aware of it. There's been seemingly apparently absolutely no movement on this case in two years. Now she has sold it off to the screenplay. That is kind of a red flag, I agree, but she waited two years. I mean, in fairness it was over two years before she told her story and before she went to the media.

GLENN: I have to tell you, Dan, let's get Ted Poe on tomorrow's broadcast and let's have him tell this at a whole story before I rush to judgment here. But this plays right in to me, at least, with Gonzales, with Johnny Sutton. I mean, I'm not saying that he was involved in this. I'm just saying it is that culture of corruption. There is, again -- and look what it comes down to. Big business. And cronies, friends. It's bad news. It is bad news. When you've got the United States government unwilling to look at something -- I mean, these were all Americans are right? The ones who raped her, were they Americans?

GRAY: We don't even know that. We don't know that part of the story, whether they were Iraqis or Americans. My suspicion is they were Americans, which is why this is being kind of covered up so strongly.

GLENN: I've got to tell you if they were -- well, I don't care who they were, but if they're Americans, they should be in jail for the rest of their lives.

GRAY: Absolutely.

GLENN: And anyone involved in the coverup, and I mean the President as well, in jail for the rest of their lives.

GRAY: Nobody wakes up in the morning thinking, I can't trust my government, I can't trust the Justice Department, I can't trust the State Department. Nobody wants to wake up in the morning with that thought in their head. So when you come to the realization that there's a real issue of trust there, there's a real problem, it's really hard to face. And that's why it's so important to have a guy like Ted Poe who's willing to go out there on a limb for us.

GLENN: She said, I woke the next morning in the barracks and I found my naked body battered and bruised. I was still groggy from whatever had been put in my drink. I was bleeding from my legs and my breasts were severely disfigured. I found out later my attackers tore my pectoral muscles due to the brutality of the attack. One of the men who raped me was brazen enough to be lying at the bottom of the bunk of my assigned bunk bed. After getting to the clinic and having a rape kit performed and pictures taken of my bruising, I was locked in a container with no food, no way to call my parents and I was placed under armed guard by Halliburton. I didn't have access to soap, toiletries, a toothbrush or any of my belongings. I was unable to leave, therefore I was imprisoned. After some time one of the guards allowed me to use his cell phone out of sympathy. I called my father back in Houston who quickly contacted Congressman Ted Poe who then initiated a congressional inquiry out of Baghdad. At this point I was still in a state of shock, severely traumatized and I was scared more my life. They said to her, "You'll never work again, you'll never come back to Baghdad, you'll never come back to work for Halliburton." Are you kidding me, you'll never come back to work for Halliburton? Wait a minute. Your employees that did this to me, I don't think I want to work for Halliburton. What kind of threat is that? That one kind of stuck out to me.

GRAY: The whole thing is mind boggling. To think that this could happen. I mean, I don't care if it's an American citizen or an Iraqi citizen. The problem is here, and we've talked about it before, there seems to be more justice for noncitizens than citizens of this country who are abiding by the law, who are doing good things, rebuilding a country or over there defending the country.

GLENN: We've lost the sense of right and wrong.

GRAY: Yes, absolutely.

GLENN: We've lost the sense of right and wrong. This is what Romney was talking about last week. I had a call on it. Said, you know, without a religious and moral country, you cannot have freedom without religion. You cannot have religion without freedom. This is part of it. When you have divorced yourself from God, when you become a country that says, no, God's not important to us, there is no absolutely right and wrong, God didn't send down rules that we can all understand, just the basic Ten Commandments, that we are going to be held responsible, that we have to serve our fellow man. When you divorced yourself from this -- and these aren't my words. These are the words of the founding fathers. You lose your way. There's no way to do it. There's no way to hold the center and, you know, you wonder why we're having shootings in Colorado. You wonder why we're having shootings in Omaha. You wonder why this kind of stuff is going on because no one has their core. No one has something bigger than them. It's all about business or power and that's going to be the end of us. 

END TRANSCRIPT

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

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?
