Glenn Beck: Dems love Mexico, hate Arizona

PAT: I think we start with Wolf Blitzer. I think we start with

GLENN: Really?

PAT: I think we start with Wolf.

GLENN: That's the only happy news left in this thing. No, I want to start with Calderon. Because I want to give you some hope there's somebody actually out there. Here's the house floor.

VOICE: "I strongly disagree with your recently adopted lo in Arizona."

GLENN: Our lo.

PAT: It is a lo.

GLENN: I don't know what a lo is.

PAT: At this point the democrats in the chamber are standing, giving him a standing ovation. Other republicans applaud him.

GLENN: I don't think so.

VOICE: "It ignores the reality that cannot be erased by decree but also introduces a terrible idea using racial profiling as the basis for lo important."

PAT: For lo.

STU: For low levels of enforcement, I think is what he was saying there. It didn't make much sense in the sentence there.

GLENN: Racially profiling. And we're trying to correct something that cannot be corrected. It's a law of nature now. I guess that people are coming across the border to live in America, because you suck so much in your government that you can't clean up the corruption and you can't stop the drug runners that are actually controlling cities now. You can't even get the military to control your cities. So I understand that you suck so much that your people want to escape.

PAT: And these idiots, idiots in the house stand and applaud him. The Democrats. Can't wait to applaud someone bashing America or a state in America and our sovereignty at stake here, and they don't care. They just get up and applaud.

STU: He's specifically saying something that's untrue that it's based on racial profiling. They know it's in there specifically prohibited in the bill.

GLENN: Wait, let's let me show you a little beacon of sunshine, that there is a journalist out there. There is a journalist out there. One. Unfortunately, he's on at 5:00 clock and now nobody's watching him. And I feel bad that's why I want to play this. Because you should hear this. This is Wolf Blitzer, a guy who I contend is one of the only real journalists out there. He is a decent, decent human being. There are several things that have happened that I have personally witnessed with Wolf Blitzer off air where I believe he is a fair guy. He really, truly, tries to be a fair and decent man. May get it wrong sometimes. But we all do. But I really believe he's a decent man. Listen to the questions when he had Calderon on. Listen to the questions and the answer.

PAT: First of all, Wolf asks him what's wrong with Arizona protecting the border.

VOICE: "It's racial profiling criteria in order to enforce the law that it's against any sense of human rights. And, of course, it's provoking very disappointing things or very disappointing opinion in Mexico and around the world even here in America. To introduce these kind of elements, especially racial profiling aspects that are attempting

PAT: Blood is boiling.

VOICE: "What we consider human rights, which is the principle against the values of this great nation."

PAT: Unbelievable specifically prohibited.

GLENN: He said it over and over in the law. Are these lo values? Lo values?

PAT: Yeah. So then Wolf follows up, to his credit, Wolf Blitzer followed up and said: Okay. If they're coming from if they're coming from El Salvador or Manawa can they just come across your border?

VOICE: "No, they need to fulfill a form. They need to establish their right name. We analyze if they have not criminal precedence."

VOICE: "Do Mexican police go around asking for papers of people they expect are illegal? If someone sneaks in from Nicaragua some other country in Central America through the southern border of Mexico, they wind up in Mexico, they can get a job and go to work?"

VOICE: "No, if somebody comes in does that without permission, we send back them."

PAT: I know. You can't even

GLENN: "We send back them."

STU: The best audio I've ever heard in my life.

PAT: Because it's against their lo. So they send back them because it's against their lo.

GLENN: And really hurts the balues of that great nation.

PAT: But our lo, apparently, is racist.

STU: And he's even

GLENN: We cannot send back them if they come. Because we're racist.

STU: He even goes into the fact that police go and look for people who look like they might be illegal.

GLENN: And they ask papers. Papers.

PAT: Much further than Arizona's lo.

STU: It is.

PAT: I don't like their balues. Why can't their balues be different than our balues and it's okay for their lo to say certain things and send back them but we can't do things of that nature?

STU: Just enforce the lo that we already have.

PAT: Is that ask too much?

STU: That's what American balues are built on.

GLENN: Just a second.

PAT: Backward speak we should. Yes. Yes.

It's not just the Twitter mobs, the Leftist extremists and the flagrant fourth-wave feminists who want ICE abolished. As we've seen, there's a growing number of politicians who want to see it as well.

Cue Alejandro Alvarez, who in his 32 years has managed to cultivate his brand as a "serial immigration violator." Alejandro has been deported 11 times. Well, he's facing deportation once again, after allegedly "slashing his wife with a chainsaw." His wife is in recovery and is expected to survive.

RELATED: The cost of unchecked illegal immigration is very real, and very high

Around 3:00 pm last Wednesday, police arrived at Alejandro's. When they arrived, they found Alvarez's wife suffering from "traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw." The couple's three children were huddled in fear inside the home. Alejandro's wife was rushed to a nearby trauma center for an emergency surgery.

Alejandro fled the scene of the crime, but was eventually hauled in by police and booked under "suspicion of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto."

Sounds like the kind of guy who should be in our country illegally, right?

ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley noted that "Immigration officers have lodged a detainer against Alvarez, requesting that local authorities notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement before his release to allow them to take the man into custody."

This is the new reality.

This is the new reality. The immigration agency has to ask for permission, to file requests, to have illegal immigrants who are guilty of crimes dealt with. Luckily for Alejandro, Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, so maybe he'll get another pass and be back on the streets in no time.

The Purple Heart is reserved for those wounded or killed during battle. Awarded by the President, the medal has George Washington's image right there on the front of it. Make no mistake, it is reserved for heroes. True heroes. Men and women who've faced death and still persevered. Soldiers who fought in battle at the cost of their limbs, their lives, or their inner peace. John F. Kennedy earned a Purple Heart for his heroism as a gunboat pilot in 1944. John McCain received one for, well, we all know his horrific story. Colin Powell. Roughly one million Purple Heart medals have been awarded to veterans, all of whom were determined to have fought valiantly, with courage and heart.

So it was a bit of a head-scratcher to hear comments from Democratic Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee and self-appointed "Leader in Effort to #ImpeachTrump." During a House Oversight Committee hearing questioning Peter Strzok, Cohen said, perplexingly, that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart. You know, because he's injured by all those mean text messages that HE sent?

As we've seen, other than Cohen's fanboy praise, Strzok hasn't gotten off easy. Thankfully. The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General wrote: "We did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the [Anthony] Weiner laptop was free from bias."

Lack of confidence. I believe that's one of the criteria for a different medal. Not a Purple Heart, though. Sorry, Strzok, you'll have to get your trophy elsewhere.

Time mgazine is back at it again, reporting the real news, doing the proper journalism. One of their latest articles is sure to earn them a Pulitzer. Surely. The article is titled, "Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court."

Here's how the article opens:

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn't need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn't sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway.

RELATED: Observations of an Irishman: Lessons from the abortion referendum

I like that the article sets up Kennedy's retirement as an apocalyptic event. A recurring theme in the mainstream media, now that I think of it, especially lately. Here's the gist of it:

Across the country, Americans are stockpiling emergency contraception in light of Justice Kennedy's retirement and President Donald Trump's Monday nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The nation's highest court is on its way to having a conservative majority, making threats against Roe v. Wade seem more dire than ever.

A good article includes backstory. History. The context. Here's what Time had to say about the sudden influx—some would say panic—in birth control:

To understand the interest in buying up Plan B, you need to brush up on Roe v. Wade. Some background: The court handed down the 7-2 decision in 1973, confirming that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy is covered by the Fourteenth Amendment. Progress has been rocky since then.

Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies.

Ah, yes. Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies. At this point, it's impossible for those inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome, to have a civil conversation. They certainly aren't going to budge in their opinion. Our main goal, obviously, is to connect to them as fellow human beings, living in the same chaotic world, and, hey, maybe along the way they'll admit that, maybe, they're a little more biased and deranged than they previously realized.

If all you knew about American politics came from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, or MSNBC, you'd think that a "Blue wave" is about to swamp the country, with hip, millennial geniuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surfing the crest of the wave. In fact, you would already think Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest hope for America since Barack Obama.

America is a very large country, and reality is usually more complex than the media lets on. But, since the media already has their narrative and superstar Ocasio-Cortez set for this November, there's no room for another young, minority, female, child of immigrants, political outsider, from the ultimate blue-wave state of California, named Elizabeth Heng. Well, there probably would be room for a story like that, except that she's a conservative.

RELATED: Democratic Socialism spun as 'innovative, millennial-friendly' — here's the reality

Thirty-two-year-old Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress against Democrat Jim Costa, in California's 16th district. It's been 40 years since a Republican won in that district.

In the early 1980s, Heng's parents fled the violence in Cambodia and immigrated to the U.S. In 2008, after graduating from Stanford where she was student-body president, Heng opened several cell-phone stores with her brothers in the central San Joaquin Valley. Running her own business and managing 75 employees opened her eyes to a not-so-dirty secret about capitalism trying to survive the virus of progressivism. She says, "I saw firsthand how government regulations impacted businesses negatively. I constantly felt that from Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they were saying that I was everything wrong with our country, when all I was doing was creating jobs."

That's when she decided to venture to Washington, D.C., where she worked for six years learning the ins and outs of legislation and campaigning. She ended up working as a director for President Trump's inauguration ceremony, a job she managed while also finishing her MBA at Yale.

Fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone.

One of the biggest lessons she learned working in Washington became the platform she is now running for office on: fiscal responsibility. She says, "In a family or a business, we don't suddenly act surprised when a budget comes up for the year. We get it done."

What a concept.

Still, fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone. So, don't expect Elizabeth Heng to replace Ocasio-Cortez as the media darling anytime soon.
