Glenn Beck: Unexplained Missile Launch

GLENN: I want to play some audio also from

The Blaze. This is from a news

channel in San Diego, and the pictures are pretty telling. I just want you to

listen to this news and tell me that you've ever heard, you've ever heard

anything like this on television or seen these pictures on local news before.

Here it is.

VOICE: Carlo, we put in a lot of calls to the Navy and Air Force tonight about

this, an incredible missile launch off the coast of LA around 5:00 p.m. But so

far no one seems to know anything about this launch. So we showed the video to

ambassador Robert Ellsworth, a former deputy Secretary of Defense to get his


ELLSWORTH: And it's spectacular. It takes people's breath away.

REPORTER: Who launched this missile and why remain a mystery now.

ELLSWORTH: It is a big missile.

REPORTER: These magnificent images were captured from the KCBS News helicopter

in Los Angeles around sunset. The location of the missile, west of LA, north of

Catalina Island and approximately 35 miles out to sea.

VOICE: You are looking at the LA Harbor.

REPORTER: A Navy spokesperson tells News 8 it wasn't their missile. He says

there was no Navy activity reported in that part of the region.

VOICE: And we have liftoff.

REPORTER: On Friday night Vandenberg Air Force base launched this Delta II

rocket carrying the Kos moss SkyMed satellite but a sergeant at the base tells

news 8 there have been no launches since then.

VOICE: That's a pretty big contrail.

REPORTER: We showed the video to Robert Ellsworth, former U.S. ambassador to

NATO and a former Deputy Secretary of Defense.

ELLSWORTH: It's not a tomahawk.

REPORTER: He said we should wait for definitive answers to come from the

military but when we asked him what he thought it could be...

ELLSWORTH: Well, I'm just speculating.

REPORTER: Ellsworth said maybe, just maybe with President Obama in Asia this

could have been a show of our military muscle.

GLENN: This is ridiculous. Listen to this.

ELLSWORTH: It could be a test firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile

from a submarine, underwater submarine to demonstrate --

GLENN: Overwater submarine?

PAT: Yeah. The airborne submarines.

ELLSWORTH: -- to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we could do that.

PAT: Oh. To demonstrate that we could do that because --

GLENN: Stop. Because we've never done that for, what, 30 years, 40 years?

PAT: Fifty or sixty?

GLENN: Okay. So we know that -- everybody -- the world knows that. You know who

doesn't know that? You know what a more logical -- and I'm not saying this is

it. I cannot believe -- I mean, let's just go through the logical explanations.

There is a -- there was a secret missile that was launched? Why would you launch

a missile at 5:00 in the afternoon, rush hour? Off the coast of Los Angeles? You

don't think anybody's going to see that? So you're not launching secret

missiles. That doesn't make sense. The next thing is somebody spilled coffee on

the submarine missile launcher and they are mopping it up and they are like,

whoa, I just hit -- sorry, captain, I just launched a missile. I've got to

believe, but I don't know, I've got to believe it's a little more difficult to

launch a cruise missile than just accidentally falling asleep on the switch.

Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know. I'm not willing to rule that one out. However,

with the redundancy, with the fact that it has -- I've never seen this before in

my lifetime? I just, it doesn't make sense to me. And I know the military. They

don't -- schmo is not behind the button: Oh, gee, wah, wah. There goes schmo

again launching another missile. That doesn't happen.

STU: NBC News does have an on-record -- on-background quote from a senior

official that says it is possible that the incident was an accidental launch by

the military.

GLENN: It's possible.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: You know what? Let me ask you this: Does this sound more feasible? We're

crippling the world's economies. The president is going to go over and meet with

the president of China. Thirty miles off the coast of California, a submarine,

not an American submarine, launches a missile as a show of force. Hey, by the

way, we just want you to know we can get within 30 miles of your coastline and

launch a cruise missile.

PAT: Who would do that? Norway? Mexico?

STU: Probably Norway.

PAT: The Dutch, Swedes?

GLENN: I mean, doesn't that sound more logical?

STU: Well --

GLENN: It's a show of force. How are we going to explain it? They are not going

to tell us.

STU: Yeah, but wouldn't they lie about that just as easily as they would lie

about another missile test? Just say, no, it was our test.

GLENN: They wouldn't have known in advance. So when the news media started

calling, they would all say, I don't know, there's no missile. We didn't launch

a missile. We don't know. It would take a while to go all the way up the chain

of command before -- you wouldn't know who launched it. And then China would

just say, we should find out. Did any -- was there any kind of alert? Did

America go on any kind of alert on the West Coast within a few minutes of that


STU: Yeah. Show of force or a test sort of run.

GLENN: I mean, we have a missile 30 miles off the coast of California go up into

the sky? Did we scramble planes? Did we do anything? Did we do anything? What

should we have done?

STU: The only thing I will -- just looking at the, from just journalistic

patterns right now, there are a lot of people writing about this story and

almost no one has any information on it. They all refer back to the same report

you just played.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And they all refer to this one guy who said specifically don't listen to

what I'm about to say about the speculation, but here's the speculation.

GLENN: Well, his speculation is that the United States made a goof. Or that we

were showing --

STU: He's showing force, I bought.

GLENN: Yeah, that we're showing force.

STU: Right, but they --

GLENN: Why would we do that? They know we can do it. I've seen the pictures of


STU: Of course.

PAT: We've done it for 40 years or more.

STU: I'm just looking at the way these story are breaking with everyone writing

about nothing is that maybe we don't have an answer yet. They may have talked to

somebody quickly who didn't know and maybe we'll get more.

GLENN: I understand that.

STU: It looks like one of those stories.

GLENN: And I would imagine that we were going to get an answer. I'm just asking

you, he's speculating. I mean, I guess we --

STU: You are allowed to speculate, too.

GLENN: I'm speculating, which makes more sense? China does that off the coast as

a show of force, or we do it to China off our coast as a show of -- what?

STU: Those are risky games, though. China's going to come 30 miles? I mean,

you're talking about a possible international nuclear war by launching missiles

off of our coast. Who knows what that starts? Those are high level games. And

maybe they are confident enough to play that, but that's tough stuff.

GLENN: It doesn't necessarily have to be China.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Back to Norway again. We're back to Norway.

STU: All roads end --

PAT: Norwegians?

GLENN: Yah, sure.

PAT: I'm sick of their show of power. I get it. I get it. You guys were strong.

GLENN: It wasn't a missile. It was a Volvo. It was an Saab, shot out of the



Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
