Let's save asylum for those who REALLY need it

There's been a lot of talk lately about refugees and asylum. The Left and the mainstream media have used it as one of their flagship torch bearing issues to criticize the Trump Administration's border policies. More specifically with what's going on with the caravans coming up from South America. The New York Times' "The Daily" podcast yesterday compared the plight of South American refugees to that of the Jews being turned away during WW2. They didn't mention it might have had something to do with progressives and FDR, but I wouldn't expect them to say that anyway. Even Beto O'Rourke wrote a piece on how he would deal with this situation. Oh - and put on your shocked faces - he's reportedly reconsidering his comment on not running for president… I know I know… major shocker.

But can you seriously compare what the Jews were facing in Nazi Germany to this migrant caravan? Can you compare them to Cubans escaping Castro, which the New York Times did as well. Filmmaker Ami Horowitz just released a video of his experience embedding with the caravan, and he asked them point blank why they had come. Every single one said they were coming for economic reasons or education. Now consider this. Mercury One and this audience helped relocate over fifteen thousand Christian refugees last year. You know how many of them got access to the United States? One - not one family - ONE PERSON! Where's the left and the mainstream media's outrage? Instead, they're directing it at migrants in South America that are trying to rush our border, assaulting the border patrol, and all because they want to go shopping in the United States.

We're not even talking about the plight of actual endangered refugees. People that need asylum as a matter of life and death. Did you know that over two million muslims are being detained in China right now in re-education concentration camps? 2 million! A member of the Chinese Muslim minority spoke in Washington yesterday to describe her experiences while in captivity. It is absolutely horrifying. Have you seen the movie V For Vendetta when Natalie Portman's character is tortured by the protagonist to show what the government's "re-education" experience looks like? This woman's account sounds almost as if the Chinese watched that scene and applied it in real life.

Have you heard this story anywhere in the media or from Democrats? Where is their outrage?

After her arrest, she had her head shaved and was interrogated for four straight days with no sleep. She was forced to abandon her native language, religion and cultural practices. Every day she was forced to memorize and sing songs praising the Communist Party. She was given electroshock treatment until she foamed at the mouth and passed out. The last phrase she heard before going unconscious was, "Being a Uigher is a crime." She was forced to take mysterious pills and white liquid that caused bleeding and disrupted menstruation. Were they forcibly sterilizing her? Keep in mind, over TWO MILLION people are enduring this… RIGHT NOW.

Have you heard this story anywhere in the media or from Democrats? Where is their outrage? Where's the oped from Beto O'Rourke? There are REAL people out there that need and deserve asylum. Mercury One is trying to help a lot of them. But the media and the Left don't appear to care or want to talk about it.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
