Gut Check

GLENN: Now I want to switch gears and I need your counsel on something quite honestly. Yesterday on the radio show, I had Sara Carter on. She's the writer from the Washington Times. She came on and I thought, you know, she did a story on how there are these 60 Al-Qaeda members or terrorists from Afghanistan and from Iraq that have been smuggled through our southern border through tunnels. They had received ammunition and guns and weapons, pretty high-powered weapons that had already been smuggled into the United States and they were targeting one of our critical intel bases in Arizona. She detailed that she wasn't sure how many of them had actually gotten through before we got onto it but there was word that several of them were in safehouses here in the United States and that's what her story was. She also said in her story that one of the sources was very credible. Another source was a drug source from a cartel. He was trying to cut himself a deal. So he said this information. So you can't really necessarily trust him. However I find it ironic that the Government doesn't trust this guy because he's a member of a cartel, yet they trust the member of a cartel to put Compean and Ramos behind bars for 11 years.

So I told you this story yesterday. Last night right before we went on air, we did our own -- because we check all of our sources. We want to make sure everything is accurate. So we call the Department of Homeland Security and they say, story's not true. Really? Story's not true? We call Sara Carter back. Department of Homeland Security says it's not true. Well, they've got their facts wrong because it is, and here are the documents, X, Y and Z. We call somebody else: Okay, can you help us out, did you check this story? Yeah, yeah, don't pay attention to that story, that's old news. I thought, what, are you working for the Clinton campaign? They always use that, old news. What does that mean, it's old news? So I had a decision. Everybody came down. We actually stopped production on this show and -- which we never do, and everybody came down on the floor and they said, Glenn, before we start, you know, what are you going to do? Are you going to run with this story or not run with this story? And I said, well, hang on just a second; let me ask the people who just work on the crew. I don't want to ask the journalists. I want to ask the crew. Which one do you believe? Do you believe that the woman who is a reporter who has been on the border, has been down to Laredo, is the thorn in the side of the administration, she's been reporting on this and reporting on these stories over and over and over again. This is her beat, the border. Do you believe her or do you believe the Department of Homeland Security? I got my answer from the crew. I'm not going to tell you what it was. I got my answer from the crew and so here's what I did. I presented the story last night in probably the most frank way that anybody else would report. Most people would just not do the story or they would do the story and be married to it. Instead I said, I don't know what the truth is anymore and how sad is that? I don't know what the truth is. I've got congressmen telling me this is happening and this is true. I've got congressmen telling me there's more to this story. I've got a congressman, and we had him on television last night, I have a congressman who says that we were training Iraqi intelligence officers at this base and they just disappeared. They knew everything that we have at the base, you know, they could have made maps of the base and they just disappear. Now, I've got that from a congressman under sworn testimony.

So what's the truth? So I'm going to ask you the same question. Here's an update from last night. I talked to another source in the Government and this source said to me, "I was very disappointed in your show last night." I said, what are you talking about? "I can't believe that you bought into it." And I said, again, what are you talking about? This source tells me that this particular reporter -- and I know her history. She's been on this forever -- is truly a thorn in the side of the administration and of Homeland Security and everybody else because she never gives up and so my source tells me that there is an effort to discredit her.

Well, from what I've gone through and what I've seen and how smarmy everybody is if you are standing up against any kind of security, I tend to believe that. I tend to believe that we have forces in our own government that would discredit those people because that's what they've done to you. You stand up for the border, you're a racist. Are you really a racist? I'm not a racist. I'm for immigration. You know Pat Buchanan comes out and says we've got to stop all immigration. I don't say that. I want immigrants here. I want immigrants here. I just want them to know who they are and I want to be able to pick them. I want to be able to say, yeah, you've got a valuable service to provide; you've got skills that we need; come on. I want immigrants here, all shapes, sizes, I don't care, colors, doesn't matter, religions, okay as long as you are not trying to behead anybody. I'm good with it. Yet they've smeared you, they've smeared me, they've smeared everybody who's on the side standing up for homeland security as racists and hate mongers. So why wouldn't they do that to a reporter, somebody who's really trying to lead the charge? So my question to you is who do you believe? I have really credible sources saying this is not true from the Department of Homeland Security, really credible journalists who say not true. Didn't happen, old story. Really credible journalists on the other side saying absolutely true. Congressmen saying yes, hello, and there's more to it. So who do you believe?


There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
