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.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
