Glenn, a gun, and an airport



Arguing with Idiots: How to Stop Small Minds and Big Government


by Glenn Beck

GLENN: So I'm in the airport and, you know, I carry a gun from time to time and I go to whenever you go to the airport in New York, you know it's going to be a nightmare because they immediately, if you have a gun, you are immediately a killer. There's no reason. Most New Yorkers, especially those that work at the airport, most New Yorkers will think, you've got a gun? Why have a gun! Because, A, it's my right to carry one. And have you noticed all the dangerous freaks around? So I went to the airport and, well, the lady immediately when I put my gun box up on the counter, I said it's a gun, she was totally fine with it because she for some reason or another thought I was a cop and she said, okay, just fill this out. And she gave me a piece of paper I had never seen before. I didn't even know what it was. And I'm looking at it and I realize it was for law enforcement. And I said, oh, I'm sorry, I'm not a police officer. I mean, I swear to you she almost reached down below the counter to push the button, "Bzzzz, there's a killer, there's killer at my desk, killer here." They made me take the gun out, apart. I mean, it already didn't have the clip in it, it already had the bullets in a separate box, blah, blah blah, it was already locked, everything. Everything that you're supposed to do. It had to be in three separate boxes. The bullets, the clip and the gun. Three separate pieces of luggage. I said, no, it doesn't. Oh, don't make that mistake. The airline just lost the gun part. It was no big deal. When I got to the other side of, you know, my destination and I said all the way there, my gun's gone, my gun's gone, it's gone. It would have been safer for me to give it to a 4 year old child than to pass it over to the people at the airport. Lo and behold, I'm out West. My gun is in Canada. And I walked up to the counter and I said, "Hey, guess what's missing?" Now unfortunately for the people out West who had nothing to do with the people back east, they kind of got the wrath. They said, "Your luggage?" I said, no, no, my gun! You know, the thing that the people on the other end were so concerned about? You people lost my gun. Of course, then somebody on the, you know, behind the counter heard the word "Gun." "Bzzzz, there's a dangerous killer here, bzzzz." They finally tracked it and I swear to you he looked up and he said, "It's currently in Montreal." Canada? Canada! First of all, we don't necessarily have the most competent people working at the airport. They've kind of lost their vigilance. When George Bush changed their uniforms from white to blue shirts because people weren't respecting the TSA, and do you remember this? And so they change their uniforms and they changed them from white to blue, I thought to myself, that's not the reason we don't listen to them. That's not the reason why we don't respect them.

Now, as you have heard earlier, I do listen to them. I don't usually listen to me or anybody else, but I do usually listen to them because I know the power that they wield and I understand how miserable they can make my life. That's not all TSA agents by any stretch of the imagination and it's not all airports by any stretch of the imagination. But you don't need to change the uniforms. Let's use human intelligence, hmmm? And hire some humans from time to time that have some intelligence. Or use their eyes. And if you want to fix it, there's no more technology that we need. It is a right to fly on a private carrier I'm sorry, it's not a right to fly on a private carrier. It's a privilege. Let's have the private industry screen their own people like El Al does and you know what? Nobody's going to get on a plane with the underwear and a bomb in it. Call me crazy.

 

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. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

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:
