Congressman: Conservatives want women pregnant and in the kitchen

Congressman Keith Ellison, Democrat-Minnesota, has come under fire for sexist remarks he made about conservative women. Ellison chose to single out fellow Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the process.

Ellison claims that conservatives “want to shrink government, to make them drown in a bathtub also want mom or ‑‑ to get back in the kitchen and take her shoes off and get pregnant.”

He then goes on to say that conservative men and women alike share these values, which is when he calls out Bachmann.

“They [conservatives] are offended by a strong, powerful women,” Ellison said. “And here's the sad part. Some of them are women themselves. Michele Bachmann being an example.”

Glenn and Pat had a good time poking fun at Ellison this morning on radio:

GLENN: Next thing you're going to be saying is take off your shoes, get in the kitchen.

PAT: Already said that. I've already said that. It's where my wife is right now. Shoeless, in the kitchen.

GLENN: Pregnant?

PAT: I hope so.

GLENN: (Laughing). I hope so? I hope so. Doesn't even matter with whose child.

PAT: Whatever. No.

In all seriousness though, Ellison’s comments are tasteless. The Blaze reported that Gretchen Carlson took offense to the Congressman’s remarks on Tuesday’s Fox and Friends saying, “That is offensive. How dare you say that about any woman. You don’t know what she wants. You don‘t know that she thinks it’s okay to be back in the kitchen pregnant. Are you kidding me?”

Ellison’s comments are inappropriate and unjustified regardless, but his remarks are especially out of line considering Bachmann’s education and accomplishments as both a congresswoman and attorney.

Women everywhere should take offense to the Congressman Ellison’s off color commentary, for the sexist and ideological dichotomy in this country is getting more and more out of hand every day.

California Democrats are leading the way on green spending, but what do they have to show for it?

In this clip, Glenn discusses California's crippling energy shortage and pleas to its citizens to stop cooling their homes during the current heat wave. Elected officials want Californians to buy electric vehicles and stop charging them, leaving Glenn to deduce that California lawmakers want people to stay home.

California's grid is under such strain that it requires a power plant in Oakland that burns jet fuel to continue operating through the end of next year to keep the lights on. "That sounds green as crap, doesn't it?" Glenn snarked. Can Americans continue to shrug this off as only California’s problem? Well, between the 17 states who have bound themselves to California by law, how long will it be before the rest of America begins to feel the impact in their lives?

The average price for a gas-powered vehicle is approximately $48,000, while the average price for an electric car is more than $66,000. And according to a study from the Hoover Institution, California will have to double its grid to meet the EV demand.

Watch as Glenn walks through the challenges and the proposed "solutions" out of California.

After tense negotiations between Amtrak, its workers, and the White House, Biden has announced that they've reached a "tentative deal" to avoid a national rail strike.

Reuters reported:

U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak would resume normal operations Friday as it works to quickly restore canceled trains after a freight rail labor deal was announced, averting a rail shutdown.

"We're saved!" Glenn said on Thursday's radio program. Pay no attention to what was happening just a few months ago with this deal or the fact that it is nearing the midterms. Just stand in awe of the totally coherent Joe Biden and his unquestionable cognitive ability to intervene in negotiations with the union workers and save America.

"This is political theatre at its finest," Glenn said. In this video, Glenn performed a one-man political theater show and illustrated why some might be led to believe that the whole Amtrak debacle was strategically planned — and on International Democracy Day to boot.

San Francisco Chronicle reported that catalytic converter thieves targeted police vehicles earlier this week.

According to police, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, an SFPD officer discovered that a catalytic converter had been stolen off of a police truck in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. A spokesperson said the officer later noticed multiple police vehicles had been hit by thieves.

No arrests have been made. Multiple officer injuries have been reported in connection to catalytic converter theft incidents.

As San Francisco police were targeted by catalytic converter thieves, House Rep. Nancy Pelosi was in D.C., along with President Joe Biden, and told the American people about the totally successful and not at all disastrous Inflation Reduction Act. Glenn Beck covered the spectacle on his radio program and called the gathering "the worst propaganda ever devised."
