Compean & Ramos update



GLENN: We're talking about the border and what the latest is. Some pretty massive news coming out today. Johnny Sutton has finally arrested the drug smuggler that was the key to putting Ramos and Compean behind bars. We find out today that there were two, two loads that came in of drugs and the federal government knew who this guy was for quite some time and they caught him twice doing, you know, another 750 kilos of dope and another large shipment as well before the trial but they kept all of that quiet and didn't arrest him. Meanwhile they gave him border passes, "Get out of jail free" cards basically. We're talking about that today. That's huge news. Something doesn't feel right. I don't know what it is yet. Can't put my finger on it but I just, it's not right. Something's not right here and the timing is sure suspicious. Here we are the week before Thanksgiving. They catch him on a Thursday night. Friday it's not in the papers yet. It will be in the papers on Saturday but nobody's reading it because not only is it Saturday, it is also the holiday weekend. So nobody's going to be able to talk about this or do anything for at least a week, maybe two weeks. So it kind of -- that's old news. Learn that from Hillary Clinton campaign, "Well, that's just old news. " So the timing is just wrong here.

Border Patrol Fundraiser Shirt

***All of Glenn's proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be donated to a legal defense fund for Agents Ramos and Compean.***

To quote Col. Nathan Jessep--Jack Nicholson's character from, A Few Good Men--"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns." That's true, and some of the men guarding our walls are U.S. Border Patrol Agents. Thing is…if one of those Border Agents tries to protect our walls with their guns, they might just end up in prison for the next 11 years. That's what happened to agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. You've heard me talk about the injustice done to these brave men, and you know that I'm outraged. I invite you to join me in showing both your anger and commitment to setting them free by wearing one of these t-shirts: "U.S. Border Patrol…To Protect And Serve Time." It's the least we can do for two men who have done the most…men with families who are unfairly paying the price for doing their duty, showing their bravery, and trying to keep all Americans safe.

But I want to -- I just want to speak, and I may be only speaking to 10 people, but I have to tell you that my gut has been telling me for a while something is really, really wrong and we are being -- I mean, listen to T. J. Bonner. I mean, here's the head of the union of the border patrol and he is saying "I don't trust my government, I don't trust my government on this." That's a mouthful. When we don't trust our government, we're in trouble. And you know what? I have to tell you, I don't trust the people in the government, either. I trust some of them, but I don't trust all of them, and I just think that there are -- you know, there are those secret combinations, there are things going on that don't bode well for the sovereignty and for the security of the United States of America, and I outlined some of them in the book that goes out on the bookshelves on Tuesday, "An Inconvenient Book" but let me speak specifically about -- and give you a warning of something that I feel those who are awake need to prepare for and to be a salve and to keep your wits about you and to watch what's going on.

I've been doing this now for 30 years. I have seen all kinds of things in radio. I have seen all -- I've lived all over the country. I have talked to listeners for years and years and years. I know with my gut and with my fingers on the pulse, I can tell you that I'm not the best judge of a lot of things, but my gut is very, very good on -- I don't know how to put my finger on it -- on sensing the mood of the country, and I am sensing that it -- and this is a very deep undercurrent but it is going to grow, and we must be aware of it. There are real people that are very disconnected from the government, and I understand it, but I am warning you that I think that some of these people -- and it's a very small minority -- they are hiding in different locations, they are calling themselves different things, but I'm telling you that a very small minority can make a very big difference in this country and I'm going to give you two examples of this and I'm not going to -- I'm not going to give you the -- I'm not going to give you the subject line of what they were talking about but these are two pieces of mail that have come in from vastly different people. This one came in. I want you to hear this: Thank you for your service, Mr. Beck, in destroying America. You've done a great job serving the elite. Please drop your pants down and bend over for the elite members to consensually rape you. Have it your way, traitor. When the dollar crashes, we will know who to pick off like an exterminator ridding the house of scurrying rats. You are a traitor who will face the justice when the time comes for propagandists that strive to kiss the establishment's ass and destroy America in the process. I hope the millions of dollars satisfy your hungry pang of greed to spew propaganda and vitriol. When the dollar crashes, your bank account will be worthless. Got it? That's from one kind of person that thinks that I am in on not pointing out that there is something afoot with the dollar, there's something going on, we're being sold out economically and this all ties again, I believe, to what's happening on the border. So there's one group that is telling me I want to say -- let me just say that again -- that I will be picked off, they will be like exterminators, and I am a traitor who will, quote, face justice when the time comes.

Then there's another one. Try this one on for size. Because at some point I have said that waterboarding is okay and I believe waterboarding probably is okay but I am also against torture like what happened in Abu Ghraib. I want you to listen to this threat: Torture is illegal, yet the TV threat is trying to teach America that we the people haven't spoken on this issue. I beg -- he's not talking to me. He's talking to others -- I beg, please fight back for humanity by not accepting a Zionist betrayal of God on this subject. TV celebrities -- like me -- are programming that waterboarding, head-slapping and the burning of no one people to death for treasonous Bush-ites Satanic pleasure is arguably in support of defending my dying America through assisting in the neocon's escape for 9/11. Death to the torturers of the innocent people. Death to the enemies of Christ in America.

I will tell you that I have not seen this kind of vitriol before and I have volumes of it. I have not seen it. This comes from us dividing -- not us but our political parties dividing us, making people believe that half the country hates America. Both sides have done it and so now the reasonable Americans no longer have any real power because we've been divided.

Gang, someday it may be my dying breath, but I am telling you we're in trouble, and I am telling you that we must unite. Republican, Democrat, independent, I don't -- you know, from the Ron Paul supporter to the Obama supporter to the Giuliani supporter, we have got to listen to each other and we have got to listen to reason because 50% of America does not hate America.

I believe there is probably between 5 and 10% of Americans that hate America and those people are very angry right now, and I hate to say it but in some ways you can make a case for some of the things that they are saying because we have been sold out and we're being sold out more and more every day. But unless the middle part of America, unless that 90% of America wakes up and corrects the problem in their own party, in their own politicians, the 10% are going to pull us apart and we are in for dangerous, dangerous times. Please, please, I'm begging of you, wake up, the people that will wake up because trouble is on the horizon.


In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:
