Glenn Beck reacts to Mattis’ resignation and US troops leaving Syria

Defense Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis stepped down from his post Thursday amid disagreements with President Donald Trump. In his letter of resignation, Mattis made it clear that he could not condone the president's decision to withdraw all U.S. forces from Syria.

On Friday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn sat down with former military intelligence officer and chief researcher Jason Buttrill to discuss Mattis' resignation and the future impact of removing American troops from Syria.

"Mattis ... is our Patton, our MacAurther, our Eisenhower," Glenn said. "He is the most respected military commander of our lifetime -- is he not?"

"He is. And not just under the U.S. military either," said Jason. "I've actually sat through briefings where he has briefed a coalition of nations together, and they look at him in awe ... everyone respects Mattis."

Speaking in reference to the withdrawal of troops from Syria, Jason said, "[People] keep saying that we can't be the policemen of the world ... I totally agree. But two thousand troops in this area is not being the policemen of the world."

"We're providing these troops specifically so we don't have to deploy a larger force. That's the point. We're enabling the Kurds and the SDF to do the brunt of the fighting. We're there just to insure that Turkey or Assad or Iran don't commit genocide. And that is exactly what is about to happen," he continued.

"We told these people to trust us -- again. This has happened to them since World War I," added Jason. "We told them to trust us and now they're going to get literally wiped off the face of the planet."

Two ATF agents and a state trooper recently showed up at the home of a man in Delaware, seemingly without a warrant and in tactical gear, asking to see his legally-purchased guns and log the serial numbers. Their request was caught on tape by a front door camera and posted online anonymously.

A reporter from National File shared the video on social media with the caption, "ATF agents and a #Delaware state cop show up warrantless at a man's home demanding to see his firearms."

In the video, an agent allegedly from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives said he was there to verify if the homeowner still had two recently purchased firearms.

“All I’m doing is verifying that you have it, you got two different purchases," the agent said, pointing to a document that presumably shows the purchases. "If you have them, I’m out of here. That’s how quick it is. Yeah. Do you have them with you by any chance?” the agent said.

“They’re in my safe,” the homeowner answered.

“If you can unload them and bring them out, we can go out to your foyer here, check them out, write the serial numbers and we’re out of here,” the agent said.

“It will take five seconds,” added the second agent.

At this point, a third person who appears to be a member of the Delaware state police explained, “the reason we’re out here is obviously gun violence is at an uptick. We want to make sure, we’ve been having a lot of issues with straw purchases. One of the things, indicators we get is someone making a large gun purchase, and then a lot of times, we’ve been there and ‘oh, those guns got taken.'”

“The idea is that when you purchase more than two guns at a time it generates a multiple sales report and it comes to us and we have to check them out. That’s all that is. You did nothing wrong – absolutely zero," the first agent said before adding, "I noticed you were stopped in Philly though with one of your guns?”

"I just – I didn’t expect –” the homeowner stammered.

“Oh no. It just came up. We came here, look, I’m telling you. There’s an email from the federal side saying can you make sure this guy’s got his guns. If you recently purchased a whole bunch of guns, if we can look at them and just scratch them off,” the agent continued.

“We can look at them and write which ones you just bought, so we can save a trip from coming back. We’ll confirm that you have them,” said the second agent.

When the homeowner went inside to retrieve the guns, the state trooper, who didn't seem to know they were on camera, observed, “He doesn’t believe we’re cops.”

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck showed the "stunning" video and he explained what to do if the same thing happens to you.

"Here's what you need to know, and tell your family this, if the ATF, FBI, anybody steps up and says, 'we just need to see your guns or we just need to verify that you have these guns,' say 'no, show me the warrant.'"

The Hunter Biden laptop scandal just got worse. But don’t be distracted by the salacious photos — we’re dealing with a national security threat.

America has seen plenty of bad scandals and corruption involving presidents and vice presidents before, but at least there were consequences and some measure of justice. People were forced to resign and several went to prison. Joe Biden, on the other hand, is at the center of what may be the biggest corruption scandal in presidential family history. And yet so far, he’s been given a free pass despite the mountain of clear evidence that he abused his position as vice president to enrich his family. He knew exactly what his son and brother were up to yet continues to lie to the American people about his knowledge.

There are so many questions, red flags, and conflicts of interest surrounding the Biden family’s business activities that it’s hard to keep track. And it all raises legitimate questions about Joe Biden’s actions now as president. The Justice Department has been investigating Hunter Biden’s financial activity for over two years and still nothing has happened. Why not?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argues Attorney General Merrick Garland owes Americans a status update on this investigation. The mainstream media wants you to think that any discussion of the Bidens’ corruption is just a right-wing witch hunt or cruel harassment of Joe Biden’s troubled son. Wrong. Glenn explains why this scandal can no longer be ignored and why every American, Republican or Democrat, should care about this corrupt abuse of power. Joe Biden’s free pass ends tonight on Glenn TV.

'How RIDICULOUS do we look?': World leaders are openly mocking America — and it's really no wonder why

World leaders are openly mocking America in response to a photo of Biden’s deputy assistant Nuclear Energy Secretary Sam Brinton and Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine at French ambassador Philippe Etienne’s home that went viral last week.

“Week 4 On The Job: Champagne and Celebration with the French Ambassador in his residence for Bastille Day. (But also the amazing opportunity to connect with one of the only other transgender government officials, Admiral Levine – not gonna lie, it felt great to commiserate with a fellow trans person facing the hate.)” Brinton captioned the now made-private post on Instagram.

Russia's United Nations diplomat Dmitry Polyanskiy posted a screenshot of Brinton's post with the caption: "Keep going that way, our dear American ex-partners! I don’t think we even need any long-term strategies to counter your malicious role in the world - you are doing the right thing yourselves! And let the whole world see WhoYouAre!"

Maria Zakharova, a Russian foreign affairs communications official, also posted the image with a caption that translates to: "US transgender Admiral Rachel Levine and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Nuclear Energy Sam Brinton at the French Embassy at a Bastille Day reception. Answer the question honestly for yourself: are these the values that you are ready to instill in your children? Or do we still fight for our own?"

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray asked why, at a time when Europe is having record inflation, food shortages, and is on the eve of possible war over oil, we would send these two to represent the United States?

"What are we doing? How ridiculous do we look?" Glenn said. "[French President Emmanuel] Macron has come out and said to the people, 'Do not drink any of the poison that is coming from America.' They're making fun of us because we're too crazy ... we're too crazy for the French!"

"We're just gorging on ourselves on nonsense and whatever makes us feel good. America should be ashamed of itself, and I think many of us are," he added.

Texas power grid RIDICULED as Tesla warns state of 'green' energy blackouts

Tesla is now asking its customers in Texas to avoid charging their electric cars during peak hours to avoid stressing the power grid to the point of rolling blackouts. The warning comes as the Electric Reliability Council of Texas is calling on residents to conserve electricity during the recent heatwave.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration continues its march toward so-called "clean energy" by forcing the nation off coal and other fossil fuels before we have a viable replacement. Instead of switching to reliable nuclear and hydropower, our delusional leaders are betting on wind power, but the wind doesn't provide power when it doesn’t blow. Wind accounts for about 30% of Texas’ power supply, according to the Wall Street Journal.

After some Tesla customers in Texas reported the in-car alerts, the Twitter crowd reacted with their predictable penchant for mockery and ridicule.

"I just want to remind people that rolling blackouts — that is something in the past. That is also something that you see in emerging countries or third world countries, not in America. And certainly, not in Texas," Glenn Beck said on the radio program.

"We're not California. We have all of the resources that we need to be able to have the power that we need. It's the only one that is not on an industrialized grid. Texas is on its own electrical grid. We don't sell energy to anybody else. We don't ask for energy from anybody else. We're on our own grid, and it's never been a problem. In fact, it's been something that we've heralded for a long time. That's why our energy was so dependable, but now we're going back. And the reason why we're going back is they put so much money into wind power. And they're turning other plants down. And that wind power is not dependable. Why, as Americans, are we allowing this?"

"It doesn't make any sense ... and we also have the largest nuclear power plant in the country here in south Texas," Pat Gray added. "If we could build more nuclear plants, you could power this country forever ... It just goes to show that that's not really the goal. Sustainable energy is not really the goal for [the Biden administration.] Their goal is to bring everybody down to ... a third-world nation. Then we have equality."
