Self defense or Murder?



GLENN: Now I want to play some audio from a 911 call in Houston. To me this is very, very clear. To me there's no question, but I think this is going to hack a lot of people off, my point of view, especially in Texas, but that goes back to my theory that I think Texas is so disenfranchised. They are on the front lines of when is our government going to enforce our own laws. And I've been saying this for a while. When our government doesn't enforce their own laws, what happens is people decide to enforce it selectively themselves. When the Government says I'm going to force this one but not this one, this one and not this one, I'm going to put you away forever on this one but not on this one. When the Government sets that example, oh, people will follow that example as well. And when they don't think that they are going to get any help from the government, if they think that the government and law enforcement is on the side of the bad guys, look out. And I think that's what happened here. 61 year old guy. His neighbors go on vacation. They're gone, ask, "Can you watch our house for us." He says absolutely. Well, somebody broke into the neighbor's house, he happened to see it and so he calls 911. Listen to what happened.

CALLER: He's going out the window right in and out of. I've got to go, buddy. I'm sorry but he's coming out the window.

911 Operator: Don't go out the door. Mr. Horn?

CALLER: They just stole something. I'm going out the door. I ain't going to let them get away with this. They stole something. They got a bag of cash. I'm doing it.

911 Operator: Mr. Horn, do not go out of the house.

CALLER: This ain't right, buddy.

911 Operator: You are going to go outside the house if you go out the house with a gun. Stay in the house.

CALLER: They're getting away.

911 Operator: That's all right. Property's not worth killing someone over, okay?

CALLER: Damn it.

911 Operator: Don't go out the house, don't be shooting nobody. I know you're frustrated but don't do it.

CALLER: They got a bag of loot.

911 Operator: Okay. How big is the bag? They are carrying by hand -- they are walking out? Which way are they going?

CALLER: I can't -- I'm going outside. I'll find out.

911 Operator: I don't want you going outside, Mr. Horn.

CALLER: Well, here it goes, buddy. You hear the shotgun clicking and I'm going.

911 Operator: Don't go outside.

CALLER: Don't move, you're dead.


GLENN: That is amazing. You just heard what I believe is the murder of two, granted, scum bags. But you don't shoot people, especially over property. You're kidding me, right? Now, he says that this is weighing heavily on him. He's a 61 year old guy. From what I understand he's, you know, a decent human being. I don't know. I'm going to call Pat here in a second from KSEV. He's following this in Houston. A lot of people in Houston are very upset because this guy's being painted as a killer but I mean, maybe I don't have the facts and I got them from the newsroom here in New York, but that doesn't mean squat quite frankly because I know how the news business works but let me get it closer to the source but I've got to tell you, just on what I heard, this guy's a killer. He said, "I'm going to kill them."

Now, as a guy who believes in the right to carry a firearm, as a guy who, I'll shoot you dead, if you come into my house. I'm not going to shoot you for my television. You come into my house, if you break into my house because especially with the world that I live in, if you come into my house, I assume you're there to kill me or my family. So I don't ask any questions. You come into the house, get the hell out of my house. If you don't do it, I shoot you. Because if it's going to be me, my family or you, you're dead. And I don't shoot to wound, I don't shoot a warning shot. I may only have one shot because I don't know what you're carrying. So bye-bye. However, if I'm in bed at night and the alarms go off and I got my kids, I will tell you that police are just a couple of minutes away. As soon as that alarm goes off, bye-bye. You better pack that television, but if somebody is coming out of my house with that television, can I tell you something? If I see them and I'm standing on my balcony and I can see you taking the television, you're free to leave because I know by the time you get outside, cops are probably going to be there. So take the TV. And even if the cops, you know, don't catch you with a TV, again I'm okay with that because I've got my family. But I will tell you if you're in my house and you're downstairs, I make it very clear. You come up the stairs, I will take that as a threat to my family and it can only tell me and it can only tell me that you plan to harm me and my family. I am armed. If you come up the stairs, I will shoot to kill, end of story. Done. And you go ahead, throw me in prison all you want. If that's the way this country, if we've turned into that, where I can't protect myself and my family, well then, you know what, maybe prison is the only place that you can keep me, but I don't regret it at all. If someone is stealing something and I go out and they've got a bag of whatever it is, if it's not my kids, I don't shoot you. Nothing, nothing you can take of mine outside of my children makes any difference. Everything's replaceable. And even if you went in and took my photo albums and everything else, oh, well, not going to shoot you for it.

Here's where this story gets interesting. First of all, the guy was on the phone prior to what you just heard and he said, the laws here in Texas have changed. Is it the Castle doctrine? Castle doctrine, which basically means, hey, it's my castle. You come into my house, if I feel threatened at all, if I feel threatened, if anybody in my family feels threatened, if anybody in the house feels threatened, I can shoot you. You're on my property and I feel threatened, I can shoot you. Oh, well, enough said. And that's the way it should be.

However, this wasn't his castle and nobody felt threatened. This guy was angry, and I think this guy was angry, I'll get the update from Pat here in a sec. I think this guy was angry because he doesn't feel the laws are being enforced. He feels, "here it is, couple of scum bags coming in and nobody's going to do anything about it because we don't enforce our own laws anymore." These guys are both Hispanic or have Hispanic surnames. Nobody has revealed yet if they were illegals or not. I know that they are being portrayed in the press as good family men but, you know, what does that even mean anymore? You know, I don't know a lot of good family men that go rob houses. So don't try to make me feel bad for these guys who were robbing a house and say they were good family men. I don't even understand that. But I think this is part of the disenfranchisement movement that is going on, that I've been warning against, that I've been saying, look out. When people start to take law into their own hands, we're in trouble. But I think this, I think this is quite possibly, and again I'll have to get the read on the ground in Houston from Pat, but I believe this could be a flash point later down on the road because nobody will confirm or deny that these guys were illegals, at least not as of last night. Not that it makes a difference. You don't shoot citizens, you don't shoot noncitizens, but the reason why everybody thinks that they're illegals is because no one will confirm that they were American citizens. And why is that? I mean, that is the politically correct thing to do: "Well, we don't, I don't -- no comment." What do you mean no comment? Were the guys here legally or not? Again, doesn't justify shooting them. It goes to the disenfranchisement, and I think that's where this guy was coming from, and I'm not going to excuse this guy. With the information that I have now, I'm not going to excuse this guy by any stretch of the imagination, but I am going to hold him up as a warning, and a warning to our government: This is what happens when you sever yourself from your own laws and from your own people. This is what happens. And just like I won't excuse terrorists who say, well, it was caused by... I don't care who caused it. You don't kill people. Feel the same way about him. But we're not too far down this road yet, but we're getting there. And if this 61 year old guy turns out to be a good, fine upstanding guy, never had any problem, not, you know, a crazy man, et cetera, et cetera, and he was just tired of the government not enforcing their own laws, if that's who this guy turns out to be and they throw him in jail, which at this time is where I believe he should be, he could be a cause, he could be a symbol, and it's not the kind of movement that this country needs.

I have to tell you I think Texas is in real trouble and I think this country is in real trouble because there's nobody that understands the Republic better than Texas. There's nobody more American than Texas. There's nobody more common sense "Get the job done, get the hell out of my way, let's just be the people we're supposed to be, use some common sense, man" than Texas. And when Texans start to say, you know what, time to take my gun and grab my country back, we're in deep, deep trouble.


Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
