Glenn Beck: Big Brother and GPS

GLENN: And then we have this story, which I find absolutely incredible. How would you feel if I said the police can put a GPS device on your car and track you anywhere you go? They could legally let me go a step further. You're not even a suspect in anything. They just said, "You know what, I want to watch where Stu is going," and they just put a GPS tracking device on your car and can track you anywhere.

STU: And I'm not suspected of anything.

GLENN: You are not nope.

STU: So how did they get the warrant?

GLENN: They don't need a warrant. I mean, I'm living in fantasy land. They don't even need a warrant. They just do it.

STU: It seems like fantasy land.

GLENN: Right, right. Here's the story out of the Chicago Tribune today. Wisconsin court upholds GPS tracking by police. Wisconsin police, from Madison, Wisconsin, Wisconsin police can attach GPS to cars to secretly track anyone's movements without obtaining a search warrant. This according to appeals court in Madison, Mississippi. However, the District 4 court of appeals said it was more than a little troubled by that conclusion and asked Wisconsin lawmakers to regulate GPS use to protect it against abuse by police and private, and private individuals. As the law currently stands, the Court said police can mount GPS on cars to track people without violating their constitutional rights, even if the drivers aren't suspects. Officers do not need to get warrants beforehand because GPS tracking does not involve a search or a seizure.

STU: Well, hold on. Let me try this opinion out for the first time on national radio as I just thought about it 13 seconds ago, okay?

GLENN: Go ahead.

STU: Isn't this what we want from judges? They are not being activists. They are not they are analyzing the law, they are saying what it says and then they are saying you should change it because it's a bad idea.

GLENN: It's Madison, Wisconsin!

STU: Right, but isn't that

GLENN: Yes, you are exactly right, but do you think Madison, Wisconsin's going to do that?

STU: But they can't if they're analyzing the law

GLENN: Nope, I got it. I got it.

STU: We're not saying they did analyze the law correctly. I'm assuming that part of it. But if they did analyze the law correctly, that is their job as a judge. This is what we complain of.

GLENN: That is their job, yes, not to regulate from the bench.

STU: Right. So hopefully maybe we can celebrate the fact that the cop knows where to go at all times.

GLENN: Now we need the second part. For instance, if this were happening in Texas, I know that the Texas legislature would go, "What!" And they would fix that.

STU: Right. They will pass a law.

GLENN: But here's where it gets "Feel good." Stu, Lisa's being talked by an old boyfriend.

STU: She is?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: That's terrible.

GLENN: I know. She's been stalked. And the guy is everywhere she goes. She'll go out to her car and he'll be there in his car just waiting for her, hassling her, saying awful things to her. She's already filed a restraining order. She's called the police. The police can't do anything, unless they catch him. And they can't catch him.

STU: Because he is not doing anything that's apparently illegal.

GLENN: No, he's hassling her, she's put a restraining order and she can't prove that he's there. He says he's not even in town. Can't the police do something? You know what would be great? Is if the police could go to his house and as long as his car's parked out front, if it's in the garage, it's a different story. But as long as the police can come and just put a tracking device on his vehicle, they would be able to prove it. They would use that in court and he would go to jail. That's exactly why they did it. And it's exactly why it's gone to court.

STU: As bad as it is, though, it's not as bad as the private part which is that the stalker can go put it on the car and they can't do anything about it.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
