Glenn Beck: Shock video


[youtube http://www.youtube.com/v/L9ff5WFFB_M&rel=0&color1=0x3a3a3a&color2=0x999999&hl=en expand=1]

REPORTER:  Polk County sheriff's office released only a portion of the video.  Believe it or not, they say, it actually gets worse.  In all eight teenagers have been arrested ages 14 to 18 including two boys who allegedly acted as lookouts.  The victims suffered a concussion and damage to her left ear and eye.  Meanwhile Christina Garcia, the mother of one of the girls charged in the attack, says the incident is being overblown and that the victim deserves some of the blame.

GARCIA:  Don't waist your time on MySpace going back and forth talking, right, saying all these nasty things about people.

GLENN:  Stop.  First of all, could you alert Chris Brady?  I want to have this particular video and then the Matt Lauer interview posted on the front page of GlennBeck.com so you can find this.  Here's the mom.  Now, so you have some concept of this, in case you haven't seen it, you have to see the video.  It is one of the -- it will turn your stomach.  The rules have changed in the world.  Our children have changed and it's time we start punishing our children under the new rules that they have created.  And yet once again when you see this video, you will see this girl who does not fight back, you'll see her being shoved into a corner.  They beat her so hard on the couch that she actually went unconscious.  She goes unconscious and she then wakes up and they beat her some more.  For a half an hour they're beating on this girl and here's mom saying, well, maybe you shouldn't run your mouth?  What kind of horrible mom is this?

Do we have the interview now with Matt Lauer?  Matt Lauer this morning had the mother who said, you know, don't go running your mouth, she had her on television -- or he had her on television.  Now, I doubt that she'll go on television yet again because she knew she was in trouble from the very beginning with Matt Lauer.  Listen to the interview.

LAUER:  I just want to make sure I'm characterizing what you said correctly and correct me if I'm wrong.  You think that the police have mishandled this, somehow overblown this case and that the victim deserves some of the blame?  Is that accurate?

GARCIA:  Well, I need to make a correction.  First of all, I do have custody of my daughter, okay?  I want to make that very clear.

GLENN:  Oh, good.  That's very clear.  I'm glad she's cleared that up.

LAUER:  What about the actual, what about the actual beating on tape?  Do you think this has been overblown?

GARCIA:  I didn't say that.

GLENN:  Stop, stop.  Her silence says it all.  There is a delay, Stu?

STU:  Yeah, yeah, there was a delay throughout.  I mean, seemed like she paused even additionally to that delay but there is some delay.

GLENN:  Go ahead.

GARCIA:  I didn't say that.  Mercades, my daughter, warned this girl before she came into the house, the two girls that you have been running your mouth about over MySpace and threatening are in the house; please do not go in the house.  She told her, and there's an eyewitness right next door, an adult that actually heard my daughter tell this girl, please, do not go in the house.

GLENN:  She called the police.

LAUER:  Your daughter lured this young lady, the victim, to this house so that the beating could occur, you say that's absolutely not true?

GARCIA:  No, it's not.  It is not true.

LAUER:  And so how many times during this --

GLENN:  Stu, are you following this?  Is this the house, is this the house the girl who keeps saying don't hit the glass, don't hit the glass, don't hit the shelves, is that the girl?  Is this --

STU:  I think that's --

GLENN:  This mother's house?

STU:  I think so.  And the grandmother lives there as well.  Kind of what I'm getting from this.

GLENN:  So the only one that would say don't hit the shelf, don't hit the glass, don't wreck the shelves is this woman's girl.

STU:  I would think so, yes.

GLENN:  You would think so.  I mean, unless there's a really, really responsible teenager involved in this beating.

STU:  Right.  You're just like --

GLENN:  Hey, hey, let's respect somebody else's property.

STU:  Go ahead, break her eye socket but make sure -- there's nice crystal in there.

GLENN:  There's like a Hummel figurine in there.  Do you know whether or not those things are worth?  I only know because I get on eBay all the time.  When I'm not on FaceBook, I'm on eBay pricing out Hummel figurines.

STU:  It is possible.

GLENN:  It is possible.  I don't know.

STU:  The police will check into that, I'm sure.

GLENN:  If you don't know what we're talking about, in the beating we saw the raw videotape and we'll post that as well on GlennBeck.com.  The raw videotape.  You have to listen to what these kids are saying.  Can you freeze what you have there, Dan, and go to the raw videotape there or not?  You know, let's finish Matt Lauer first.  Then I want to go back to the raw videotape so you can hear what these kids are saying and you will hear what I believe is this woman's daughter saying, don't hit the shelf, don't break any glass.  She's trying to protect the house, not the kid.  And if her daughter was so great, why didn't she call police?  "My daughter tried to warn her."  Okay.  So now there's a beating, she goes unconscious for 30 minutes and then they beat her some more?  You don't call police?  You warn her but then you don't call police?  That doesn't make any sense.  And I have to tell you as I watched this video today, the three of us watched it together, Dan, Stu and I.  We stood there and watched it together and all of our reaction was exactly the same.  If this were my daughter involved, I would personally bring her down to the police department and say, she's all yours; there ain't nobody bailing her out.  I personally, because it obviously, you know, this kind of rage comes from some place, I probably would then be capable of kicking somebody's butt.  If anybody did bail my daughter out, I'd kick their butt.  Don't bail my daughter out, don't try her as a juvenile.  Throw the book at her.  When you see this, you will not believe what animals these children are.  I'm sorry.  It's a -- I'm sorry.  Don't mean to call them children.  What these young adults are.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
