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.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
