Weinergate: alleged Weiner pics hit the web

Are you ready for Weinergate? The other day, a picture of someone took a picture of their weiner and sent it to a co-ed in Seattle from Anthony Weiner’s Twitter account. Was it Anthony Weiner? Did someone hack his account? Or was someone playing a joke on him? If it wasn’t Weiner’s weiner, he’s sure doing an odd job trying to explain what happened. Glenn had all the developing details on Weinergate on radio this morning.

“Anthony Weiner, the guy who did an investigation, a hardcore ‑‑ now, see, this is bad again ‑‑ did an intense investigation of me last summer, had congressional hearings about how I was a man of ill repute and I said at the time, you know what?  Don't worry; these people will end up destroying themselves.  That is not happening here with Anthony Weiner,” Glenn joked.

“I'm going to take him at his word, that his Twitter account was hacked into over the weekend,” Glenn said.

“Which word are you going to take?  Are you going to take the fact that it was hacked into or that he was pranked?” Stu said, noting the strong difference between the two phrasings. Hacked would implicate much more sinister intent and consequences than a ‘prank’.

Pat pointed out that it didn’t seem like Weiner had contacted the police or the FBI, even though someone hacking a congressman’s account would seem to be a big sensitivity issue.

“For national security purposes, there should be an investigation,” Glenn said.

"8:00 he tweets out the weiner pic, okay?" Stu explained. "At 8:04 he's tweeting about a hockey game and doing it many times in a row.  So he's on Twitter at least four minutes later."

"Then four hours earlier, he tweets this.  He's 'heading to 30 Rock to chat with Rachel Maddow at 9:00 and then he hash tags it 'that's 5:45 in Seattle I think'."

"So before this he's obviously interacting with someone in Seattle and right after ‑‑ you know, after he tweets that, the girl in question also retweets his 5:45 in Seattle line."

And what does Weiner have to say?

“ If I were giving a speech to 45,000 people and someone in the back threw a pie or yelled out an insult, I would not spend the next two hours of my speech responding to that pie or that insult,” he told reporters – who weren’t happy with the answer.

Glenn, Pat, and Stu all wondered why he would not just say “No, I didn’t do it” rather than pretend like it’s a non-issue. “If someone asked you, is it your junk in the picture, that's an easy no,” Stu said.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Weiner "can't say with certitude" it is not his weiner in the weiner pic.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
