We are all Asia Bibi today

Imagine you were just listening to the sounds of an angry mob in Pakistan, ravenously demanding the execution of a Christian woman for blasphemy. If you are a Christian in the world today, welcome to the first century. I know some people are saying, "But Glenn this is in Pakistan!" I will tell you this, if we continue to have this blasé attitude, the ravenous calls for the death of anyone, simply for their religious beliefs, will spread like a raging out of control wildfire.

This morning, WE ARE ALL this Pakistani Christian woman.

How is it that we have come full circle, where the persecution that Jesus' apostles and the first Christians endured by the Romans is now — again — standard fare in places like the Middle East? But the cowardice I saw from our cousin in the United Kingdom over this situation has me truly horrified. It's rare to be witness to such a cowardly act that the British just committed, and it all centers around this young woman from Pakistan.

Asia Bibi was picking berries with a few other farmworkers in a remote Pakistani field back in 2009. But when a supervisor asked her to get some water, her life changed forever. Christians in Pakistan have always been on the receiving end of bigotry and persecution, so it probably wasn't a surprise to Asia when two muslim women began to fight with her, saying they wouldn't drink from anything that had been touched by a Christian. But it all spun out of control when the two muslim women claimed she had insulted Mohammad. A crime punishable by death. Despite the fact that no one else could verify this claim, Asia has been in prison ever since.

Pakistan's Supreme Court just acquitted Asia and set her free. Apparently it's kind of a bad precedent if you condemn a person to death based off of mere hearsay. But the mob didn't care. They wanted blood. They've been out in the streets demanding Asia's death. CRUCIFY HER!

The only chance for her and her family is to get the heck out of dodge before the mob takes "justice" into their own hands. You'd think an asylum claim would be an easy slam dunk. Europe has been taking in refugees by the millions. Quite literally by the millions.

But the UK has denied Asia and her family asylum. Why? Because they fear the quote "unrest" that might spring up in British streets from the country's swelling Muslim population. Are you kidding me? Where are the people that once said this, "we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER."

Where are those people? Where's the courage? Where's the decency?

The only chance for her and her family is to get the heck out of dodge before the mob takes "justice" into their own hands.

If you want to know what true manifested cowardice is, I give you the British Government. And — to the Women's Marchers and new wave feminists — if you want to know what a true war on women is and real bigotry, try being a woman and — God forbid — a Christian woman in places like Pakistan. And now, apparently, in places like the UK.

President Trump should grant this woman and her family immediate asylum here in the United States. Now is the time to lead and show the world our compassion and greatness.

For if we don't, no one — not even our supposed friends and allies — will do it in our absence.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
