Glenn Beck: Introducing The Blaze



What is TheBlaze.com? Glenn explains...

GLENN: Now, this is from the front page of TheBlaze. It's about cellphones for illegals. Explain what this is.

PAT: These are two professors who have come up with a program. And first of all, they are talking about how we fixed the United States of America. And then the video goes into their little program here where they are installing these GPS chips in cellphones and handing them out to illegal aliens. This has been going on through the Mexican government for a while, but this is the first I've heard where our

GLENN: Our U.S. tax dollars are going into it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, I want you to listen to this audio and you can see the video at TheBlaze.com, which is my new news and opinion site that I hope you will make as a regular stop for news and opinion. It is it's the Huffington Post you know, it's a very it's a baby version of that at this point because they spent $56 million on that. But this is a baby version of that and what we hope to grow into the common sense version of the Huffington Post. If you are going to do the Huffington Post, you've got to have somebody that's standing up against it. And so that's what we have launched today as our first day up and running. So check it out please at TheBlaze.com. But here is this audio from the University of California San Diego. These first two voices that you will hear are professors, and they talk about the United States. And then they talk about what their plan is. Here it is.

PAT: And here, it's coming.

GLENN: Here it comes.

PAT: This is Mike (inaudible).

VOICE: I think the way to fix the country is to dissolve it. We could either give our land back to the indigenous people that we stole it from or we could just wait for the economic collapse and build community based alternatives and infrastructures to replace.

GLENN: There you go.

PAT: Okay. So there's your two options. You can either give it back to the people we stole it from, or we just wait for the collapse and then start all over again with the communist system.

STU: One of the two. Just pick either one. They are open minded. It's one of the two.

PAT: So it's not like they are offering options. We've got a choice.

STU: Pro choice.

PAT: They are all about choice. You can choose give it back or, you know, collapse it.

GLENN: Sounds crazy.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Sounds crazy but not in the world of academia.

PAT: Wow. This is Ricardo Dominguez.

DOMINGUEZ: and that is safe passage. And so the question is to move the kind of anchor of civil disobedience within the kind of overfetish sized notion of a single sovereignty, of a nation

GLENN: Overfetished sized.

DOMINGUEZ: or look at the larger transtrack, transsociety that is emerging and that also should have a type of global rights.

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, stop. So we're talking about global rights. And what was the global trans, what was it, TransAmerica?

PAT: The transtrack.

GLENN: No, the trans was it TransAmerica highway or something? Isn't that what

PAT: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Notice he is using that same language. That there is an emerging TransAmerica, trans, whatever, however he phrased that. But basically he's talking about, again, just like the other guy, he's saying dissolve sovereignty. It's just going to become one. And it's emerging and that's the direction that we're going. Now what is that next?

PAT: So now they talk about Dominguez and Cárdenas are offering cheap phones to include maps, water spots and a compass to help illegals to cross the border.

GLENN: And they are doing it with your tax dollars. These are two professors at the University of California San Diego.

PAT: Now, the first one talks about the program and then the second one talks about how they are funding this and it is unbelievable.

REPORTER: Downloaded into Motorola phones with GPS, an application meant to help illegal immigrants safely make their way into the U.S.

VOICE: It's really just designed for you to turn it on and the compass would show you where is the nearest safety site.

VOICE: The tool consists of an inexpensive cellphone with a global positioning satellite chip, a GPS chip, and a custom piece of software on which accesses the phone's ability to receive GPS information without need to send out data which may allow the user to be located and without needing phone service.

GLENN: I mean, that's amazing.

PAT: Now this is Professor Dominguez.

VOICE: Right, because I'm paid so much money. And so how much of that money

PAT: And he's about to brag about getting tenure through doing this program and using taxpayer funds.

VOICE: Which might be taxpayers' money is actually going, between 2007 and 2009 when I was when I earned tenure in part based on this project, it was given awards, it was, you know, performed as a legitimate condition of research.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: Jeez.

PAT: Also included on the

VOICE: In addition to the navigational capabilities is a tool, we have added another module to the software in order to shift the dialogue further towards one of hospitality. As the user walks with the tool after a given interval, a few lines of poetry will begin to play.

GLENN: Oh, dear God.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Oh, jeez. Oh, jeez!

PAT: Now, see, that seals the deal for me.

GLENN: Help! Help!

PAT: I didn't know that was included.

GLENN: Help!

STU: What's that, it reminds me of the Al Gore poem.

PAT: Almost.

GLENN: We have somehow or another slipped into an insane world. They are using taxpayer monies to help illegals come in to help collapse the system and they are doing it with poetry!

STU: It's always good when you can work not one but two C words into your poetry.

PAT: Yes, yes.

STU: One is not enough. We can know that.

PAT: That's just the talent of this writer, this particular professor who I

GLENN: He's tenured.

PAT: You know, he's tenured and I wonder if he is an English professor because that was a brilliant poem. And I think that will make the illegal aliens feel more hospitable once they sneak illegally into our country. And they are showing where the hot spots are and the safe spots and the water spots.

GLENN: Do you realize seriously do you realize what all of this means? I mean, our country is so far gone that it is going to take a true resetting of the system. It needs to be rebooted.

STU: You mean like you want it to collapse and we can either that or give it back to the people we stole it from?

GLENN: Well, I think it's going to collapse. It can't, it can't continue down this path. It can't. These systems are incompatible with each other. This is like running apple software, you know, on a Commodore 64 and then, you know, trying to jam a transistor radio into the little floppy disk drive. I mean, it doesn't none of the it doesn't work. They are not meant to go together. And you are going to destroy the entire thing. So, you know, this is why I've said, look, there's trouble coming. I mean, these people are intentionally trying to collapse the system and you are going to have to be a leader. We really, we really truly are

Somebody, I had dinner with somebody last night. My sister was in town and she brought a friend in and she said, you know, Glenn, I feel crazy. And I said, you do? She said, we live on a big farm and we're kind of secluded out in the middle of nowhere and she said, our friends have all started talking about, hey, if things happen, I have this skill and you have that skill and we should all get together because, you know, we have to put together a little community that would be able to survive. And I said, okay, tell me when the crazy part starts. She said, isn't that crazy? And I said, yeah. Yeah, it is nuts. It is nuts. Five years ago, two years ago. I think that's going to look completely sane in about a year. I think in a year from now you'll look at that and say, you know what, that's probably a good idea. I think you are still way ahead of the curve, and I hope you don't ever do it. I hope you don't ever need it. But is it insane to think how do we become self sufficient? How do we hold together our communities? No. No, not with people like this who are intentionally trying to collapse the system. No, I don't think so.

STU: Not to mention it's a good idea whether something bad happens.

GLENN: Or not.

STU: To be self sufficient is one of the defining American characteristics. Should be.

GLENN: You should be getting out of everything that you possibly can so you can be as self sufficient as you possibly can. The more control anyone has over your life, the harder it's going to be. That's just the way it is. That's just the way it is. You know, the more you and the more people you are going to be able to help.

Texas Democratic gubernatorial nominee Robert Francis "Beto" O’Rourke's disgusting and obviously-staged political stunt during a press conference about the Ross Elementary School massacre is just another of the many ways that prove the man is "human trash," Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere agreed on the radio program Thursday.

"Beto is human trash. He is scum. He is the scum of the earth, the lowest form of humanity our society can produce," Stu said in response to a video clip of O'Rourke heckling Gov. Greg Abbott in the middle of an update on the tragic mass killing in Uvalde. "This was obviously staged from the beginning ... clearly planned. Even CBS News pointed it out it was blatantly a staged event. And this guy [O'Rourke], because he wants more power and more money, decided that this event was about him. He wanted to make the [deaths] of 19 children and teachers all about Beto O'Rourke because he is human scum. He is the worst form of life imaginable on this Earth."

Democrats like O'Rourke have been quick to use the tragic deaths of 19 children to advance their own pro-gun law political agendas, particularly "red flag" laws that would empower courts to take guns away from "potentially dangerous" people

"You want a solution? Stop selling AR-15s in the state of Texas. You want a solution? Have universal background checks. We don't have them. You want a solution? Red flag laws or extreme risk protection orders, which stop a shooting before it happens," O'Rourke shouted after being escorted out of the press conference.

Glenn wasn't buying O'Rourke's "righteous indignation," especially as his own resurfaced writings qualify as the "ultimate red flag for any red flag law." As a teen, O'Rourke wrote about hacking, overthrowing the government, and, most disturbingly, murdering children by running over them with his car.

Glenn read an excerpt from a fiction O'Rourke wrote when he was 15 years old:

[O]ne day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.

As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.

"Dangerous, right? Nothing good's going to come of this. According to Reuters, those are the teenage writings of Beto O'Rourke," Glenn said. "The state of Texas should be very aware and not allow [O'Rourke] to buy a gun because of this. This guy, this guy, and his righteous indignation — give it a rest, bud. Give it a rest."

Texas AG Ken Paxton says gun laws are NOT the answer, urges schools to arm teachers

In the wake of the unspeakably grievous mass murder at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, many on the left are calling for increased gun control measures, but without specifying exactly what legislation could have prevented the horrifying event. Attorney General Ken Paxton says gun laws are not the answer. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail specific measures he believes could stop similar school atrocities in the future: arming teachers.

Paxton told Glenn that Texas has already put laws in place that allow schools to opt in to training and arming teachers as either a marshal or under the guardian program.

"We passed laws when I was in the Texas Senate, I think it was 2013, that would have helped greatly. There's no way that law enforcement can get to every location as fast as they would need to," Paxton said.

Glenn interjected, "I'll tell you, I went to a school where my son was playing football ... and there were signs all over. 'Beware. Teachers are armed. We take the Second Amendment and the protection of our students seriously.' It was so clear — not doing anything here. That's the way to do it."

"Yes," Paxton agreed. "I think that's the way it should be. I mean, these people [shooters], they know they're safe, at least until law enforcement gets there, to accomplish their goals. And we're going to keep seeing this happen until we decide as a state ... to protect these kids," he added.

"It's ridiculous for the Biden administration to suggest that this kid who decided to violate the murder laws would [think], 'Oh. Wait a minute, there's a gun law. I can't do this. I wouldn't violate gun laws.' It's law-abiding citizens that follow the law," Paxton continued. "Second, we have a fentanyl crisis that the Biden administration has presumably invited and we've had over 100, 000 people that overdosed and died from fentanyl. [...] Why isn't the Biden administration so concerned about the hundred and something thousand people that died from overdoses because they opened up the border and allowed fentanyl to come across?"

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

Glenn Beck addressed the incomprehensibly tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on the radio program Wednesday, saying it's time to stop with the politics, from both sides, and focus on healing a nation that is tearing itself apart.

"It pains me to think about the political garbage that has happened in the last 12 hours," Glenn began. "I believe that we are on the verge of losing our nation, and the reason why we're about to lose our nation is the same reason some kid walked into an elementary school and shot and killed people. It's not the guns ... it's our society."

Glenn called the tragedies plaguing our nation' —kids shooting kids, committing suicide, dying from fentanyl, joining gangs, and suffering from depression and loneliness — are symptoms of a greater sickness.

"Where's the value of human life? The hatred that is being poured down our throats, the class division, the racism — make no mistake, it is intentional," he stated. "The best way to destroy a nation is to cut it apart. ... In our society, where are the ethics? What are ethics? It's your truth versus my truth. There is no absolute truth. And in a world where there is no truth, who gets to be God? Well, it depends on which group you're in I guess."

Glenn said America’s underlying problem is "a rotting in our soul" and until we "live in a nation that is willing to even recognize that there is something bigger than the self, and it has nothing to do with government, we'll never fix this problem."

"Let's not make this about Democrats and Republicans. Let's just make this about what the hell is going on because everything in our society is falling apart," he said. "And until you're willing to have that conversation, the rest of it is bullcrap."
