GLENN: All right, hang on, Lee. I want to explain this. Marcus Luttrell called me last week. I was on my way home and he was unlike I have heard Marcus. He was beside himself. He was just emotionally drained, and he had just gotten out of the hospital the weekend before because when Marcus, who is part of the Navy SEAL team that took on it was the biggest battle the Navy SEALs have ever been involved in in the history of the Navy SEALs. Three of his teammates died. He was the lone survivor. It happened in Afghanistan. He was eventually captured. After I think three, four days, he was captured and then he was taken by the Taliban and he was tortured beyond your wildest imagination. Because of that torture, he again has had yet another surgery. He'll never be right, but he had just gotten out of the hospital. He doesn't sleep anymore at night, as he said on television, and I'll have Marcus explain that. He doesn't do well at night anymore. So he sleeps during the daytime. In the middle of the night about 1:00 in the morning, he hears a gunshot. He grabs his gun and he goes outside. He lives on a big ranch about with his mom out in Texas. He takes care of his mom and he goes outside and he sees that somebody has just executed his dog. He had a golden lab. The name of the lab was Dasy, D A S Y. Each letter stood for a call sign, if you will, of each member of the SEAL team. So this dog was given to him as a puppy during his recovery. He named her Dasy to be able to remember his fallen comrades.

Dirtbags, four of them, two are just witnesses now. One is still on the lam and the other one is now in jail. Marcus had them. He took his gun, he leveled it right at one of them. He didn't pull the trigger because he has restraint, and they got into the car. They drove away. He chased them through four different counties. He finally runs one of them runs the car off the road and he's got them and he is ready I think if he would have had a clear shot, I don't know what he would have done. But they executed his dog. They are calling him all kinds of names. They are cowering now behind the car. He calls 911 and when he calls 911, the state troopers come or the Rangers, the Texas Rangers come. Don't mess with Rangers, and don't mess with Rangers and Marcus Luttrell. I mean, that's just a suicide pact.

*** UPDATE ***


According to Lt. Bryant Wells with the Texas Rangers, Michael Edmonds turned himself in to authorities. He was booked and was released on bond.

So the Rangers come, they grab the guys, they are putting them in zip cuffs and these when these guys start mouthing off to Marcus: Oh, yeah? Well, we're coming for you next. Not just your stupid little dog but we're coming for you next.

Well, the problem is these guys have killed dogs in these allegedly these guys have killed dogs in the counties. There's been a rash of people shooting dogs. We think we have one of the guys' FaceBook pages, the guy who's still on the lam. We're going to verify if it's him. If it is, you won't believe what's on his Facebook. But, you know, may I just stop for a public service announcement here real quick.

VOICE: Warning, don't kill dogs. Aside from the obvious reason that killing a dog is the murder of an innocent animal that people love, there are other reasons you should not kill dogs, including you might kill Marcus Luttrell's dog. Marcus makes Jack Bauer look like Screech from Saved by the Bell. If you are still alive when he is through with you, you will undoubtedly kill yourself just so he doesn't do it again. So take off your Michael Vick jersey and leave the dogs alone, you worthless sack of crap. Thank you.

GLENN: Public service announcement: Don't kill dogs, especially not Marcus's.

So Lee, when you first heard the story, what was your thought?

CALLER: To tell you the truth, I stood up against my radio and I started crying because I understand what it's like when you're a soldier and you have everything taken from you. I know that I wanted to reach out and just thank the man for his service. I wanted to say that I guess if I could have, I would have tried to embrace him and tell him I'm sorry that happened to you. You know, if people would have had respect, that wouldn't have happened. And it's because he has respect and probably a love for God and various other things that are stable things that have been taught to him in his life that helped him get through it, it made me so upset that somebody would just disrespect somebody like that. I was very upset. I just felt for him and I wanted to tell him thank you, thank you, thank you.

GLENN: Lee, thank you for your call. I appreciate it. You know, the amazing thing about Marcus is his strength. I mean, he's a guy don't get me wrong and I'll say this with him sitting here. He's a guy who struggles. I mean, he has had obviously some real trauma in his life, and he struggles. And he is struggling now, you know. You know, anybody who knows SEAL members or anybody who knows diehard core guys, they're all the same. You know, they want to be with their friends, they want to be with their buddies, they want to be over there, they want to be watching someone's back. This is what they do. And now that Marcus is so screwed up with, you know, physically that he can't do it anymore, it's tough. It's tough. And that's why I think, you know, here's a guy who has fought in your name and my name, and I wish you knew Marcus.

Here's a guy who has given everything he has for justice, everything he has for the American republic, and he comes home and he has a really hard time. He hates it when people call him a hero. He doesn't under he was just doing his job, and he doesn't understand, quite honestly. And I don't think I would, either: Why did I live and they died. So he's going through all of this, plus the man is in pain like you wouldn't believe all the time.

He came over to my house about a month ago and he was with us. He was standing in my kitchen and I could just tell he was uncomfortable and he said, I didn't even know if I'd be able to make it here; I'm just, I'm just very uncomfortable. I'm in a lot of pain. What the Taliban did to him will live with him every single day of his life. And he comes home and he's welcomed home by a lot of people. I will tell you that it bothers him when people call him a hero, but I think he appreciates I know he does he appreciates when people remember his friends. He lives to make sure people don't forget those guys. The people of Texas know who he is and remember what he's done, better yet remember his friends and what they did. But when he called me up on the way home and he said, "Glenn, is there any justice. What has happened to us. Who are these guys. It's like I have been trained my whole life to live honorably and to go out and to get the bad guys, and the bad guys have always been some place else. And now the bad guys come to my house and they shoot my dog, and I have to stop because I'm no longer the guy that can exact justice on the bad guys." I mean, a remarkable story for people who don't believe that people with guns can behave themselves. Marcus Luttrell is exactly the kind of guy that needs a gun, somebody who can stop themselves.

Even though I'm guessing he didn't want to, I can't imagine the battle that he had in his head. As he called me up on the way home, he described, "My buddies have all died again." That dog kept them alive in his life. "My buddies have all been killed again." One of them is still on do we have the mug shots? I want to put the mug shots in the newsletter today and I want to put the phone number of the police department in case you see the guy who is out on the lam. These guys are psychos. I mean, it's clear these guys are I mean, you just don't kill dogs for the jollies.

STU: Yeah. What we believe is the MySpace page has pictures of him with, you know, not only little puppies which, I mean, so disturbing after thinking about what's happened but, you know, with guns and strung up animals and stuff. And none of that is necessarily bad in and of itself. But you just look at this story, as you look at it, and this isn't going to surprise anybody but how much better of a guy is Marcus Luttrell than you? Like the first thing that popped in my head is, man, I would not have been able to restrain myself. I would have just if they did something like that to my dog, I would have walked out and happily with a smile on my face shot them between the eyes.

GLENN: And especially in Texas.

STU: Because it would have been legal to kill them.

GLENN: Because if they were on his land and they had a gun and they had just shot the dog, I bet in Texas you could have shot them.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: At least one of them. You could have whoever had the gun, you could have shot them.

STU: I don't even know that I would have been conflicted about it. To be perfectly honest, I don't even think I would I mean, you would have that moment of just general human, do I want to do this. But it would seem in my head at the moment so incredibly justifiable.

GLENN: Right.

STU: That I don't think they would have any I would have had any chance of stopping myself. I mean, that's how good that's how I feel like such on another level a guy like Marcus Luttrell is, you know, and a lot of guys in the military.

GLENN: See, I don't think so. You know what, I have to tell you, I don't think so. I mean

STU: Really?

GLENN: For him because he is trained to, "Don't hesitate, pull, pull, pull. Threat, pull, pull." You know what I mean? That's what he's trained to do. So he's got extra in him to overcome. But everyone who's a gun owner, if you can't control your emotions on, "Oh, my gosh, what have you just done; boom." If you can't control yourself there, you shouldn't own a gun.

STU: That's an interesting point. You might be right. I don't know.

GLENN: No, I think it's clear on that. If you can't control

STU: If someone's on your property and has just murdered your animal, I don't know that's not justifiable.

GLENN: If you don't feel threatened.

STU: They've got a gun.

GLENN: If you feel threatened.

STU: Yeah, I'm not

GLENN: If you feel threatened, yes. But if you don't feel threatened, no. You just, if somebody shoots their dog and they've got their gun and they're like, yep, I did it, you can't just now shoot them. But if they've got their gun and they're brandishing it and you're feeling threatened, you bet you can shoot them.. But that is a that's a choice. That's not, "You just killed my dog! Boom!"

STU: Yeah, I see the line you're talking. Yes, obviously you'd definitely feel threatened in that.

GLENN: Yeah, if you feel threatened. But not because of anger, not because of rage, not because

STU: Right.

GLENN: I'm exacting justice.

STU: Yeah. To be a responsible gun owner, you're making logical, sober decisions not based on anger. You know, it's the whole coming in and seeing your wife with another man and shooting him in the head. He will feel justifiable but it doesn't mean it's right.

GLENN: For me here's where it gets complicated in this. This is where it shows character and that is Marcus just got out of the hospital. He's reliving what they did to him. He gets out of the hospital. He's in excruciating pain. His dog, who is his best friend, unconditional love from his dog, his dog is named after his other buddies. He is going through all of this again because he just got out of the hospital, and he walks out and they take it. I mean, you know, there's restraint for you. And that's something that we don't have anymore.

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
