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



How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
