OUT OF CONTROL: Violence in Mexico is targeting journalists and politicians

The 3 am air is chilly and bitter as Pamela Terán leaves Bar Jardin, a restaurant and bar in the middle of town, then steps out into the empty plaza. The sun won't begin rising for about three hours, and Pamela is enjoying a festive night before the elections bring higher tensions. She's running for the town council as a member of the Institutional Revolutionary Party. She feels at home here in Juchitán, Mexico an indigenous town on the southwest corner of the country, a brief car ride from the ocean.

Pamela has black hair and a kindhearted smile. Bracelets adorn her arm and she wears a modest, hand-stitched dress with an elaborate and colorful design — a design you could only find right here. She's with her friend, photojournalist Maria del Sol, and a man, her bodyguard, who's also her driver.

The world around her is mostly quiet. Tree frogs whistle, croak, ribbit and grunt. In the distance, a spider monkey wails out its strange call. In the daylight, this place is paradise. Cornfields weave into forest. Ancestral homes sprawl to the railroad, past farms with cows and pigs and goats and chickens.

Last year, the region was struck by the worst earthquakes in Mexico for the last century. Pamela appeared on television, asking for volunteers. The video is eerie, with her standing in the dark, as floodlights shine onto rubble, people frantically searching for life or bodies, and she looks into the camera. "We need more people to help us," she said. "Please."

She was a doctor by profession, and an activist who ran two organizations for the dispossessed. Two years ago, she was a candidate for Mayor. Maybe she's thinking about all of it as she crosses the plaza to the car, unaware of the cloaked figures waiting in the darkness.

Inside the car, they pause, stung by a strange feeling, something ominous and sudden, but before they can react, the gunfire begins. The killers empty their clips, then shove in another. They make sure no one is left alive, then they vanish.

On Monday, military helicopters watched over the funeral. At least 1,000 people attended.

The details of Pamela's death are spare. Officials admit it "may have been gang-related, as her father, Juan Teran, has a criminal record and alleged relations with the Juchitán Cartel."

Presidential elections begin July 1st, and the drug gangs have been murdering their way into the race, from city halls upward.

But either way, her death is part of a far more ominous trend overtaking the country. Since last September, over 110 electoral candidates have been murdered throughout Mexico. In the 24 hours before Pamela's death alone, "armed civilians" murdered two women politicians a few hours northwest. The two women had been rammed into a ditch late at night and summarily executed. In the morning, police uncovered their bodies. The vehicle had been abandoned and nothing had been stolen from the women or the car, so police quickly realized that it wasn't robbery.

Presidential elections begin July 1st, and the drug gangs have been murdering their way into the race, from city halls upward. Crime bosses have implanted their own batch of politicians, people who can be paid enough to stay out of the way. Criminal gangs rove the country, eliminating any reformers or dissenters.

Journalists are dying at an alarming rate, a historical high, so it's often hard to know for sure what happens. People just vanish, in the dark, at night, but the warring drug cartels are getting bolder by the day, bringing their culture of death to every corner of the country.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
