The War on Moms

While the left continues to accuse the right of waging a “war on women,” the Obama Administration is implementing their own “war on women” by, as Glenn put it, “treating them like morons.”

Yesterday, Democratic talking head Hilary Rosen went on CNN and basically said that because Ann Romney was a stay at home mom, “she’s never worked a day in her life,” and therefore doesn’t have any credibility regarding economic issues.

Here is her statement from CNN last night:

“With respect to economic issues, I think, actually, Mitt Romney is right, that ultimately women care more about the economic well-being of their family, and the like. But he doesn't connect on that issue either. What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying my wife tells me what women really care about are economic issues. When I listen to my wife that's what I'm hearing. Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the economic issues that -- a majority of issues that women are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send to them to school, and how we worry about their future."

Glenn couldn’t help but point out that Ann Romney has not only raised five children, those children were all boys – not exactly an easy task.

Stu took note of how little attention has been paid to the second part of Rosen’s offensive comment. “She has never put thought into the economic future of her children.”

“That’s a shot at being rich,” Pat said, also questioning how anyone could not be aware that most everyone is concerned with the future of their children, regardless of their economic situation.

“I bet wealthy conservatives are more concerned about their children's economic future than liberals are,” Glenn said. “Because conservatives are more likely to say, pull yourself up by your bootstraps this is my money I made it. You go make it on your own. I'll help you, but you go make it on your own. You're not going to live off daddy. The Kennedys live off daddy, and granddaddy, and gran-gran-grandaddy. Limousine liberals, that's what it is. They pass it from generation to generation, and they just become these really dependent people.

This always seems to be how the left exposes who they really are. They point their finger at the right, and accuse them of exactly what they themselves are guilty of. “This is who Hilary Rosen, and people like her are,” said Pat.

For those that are thinking that this isn’t really relevant to the Obama campaign, he can’t control every talking head out supporting him on the campaign trail, they may want to consider Hilary Rosen’s connections to this administration, like the fact that she’s made multiple visits to the White House.

“She’s been to the White House numerous times,” Stu said. “In fact the White House logs, according to National Review, say that Hilary Rosen has visit the White House thirty-five times.”

Thirty-five White House visits may not seem like a lot for a President who has been in office for over three years, but compare that with General Petraeus, who is in charge of a war operation in Afghanistan that has been going on for about a decade, and you may notice a problem.

General Petraeus has been to the White House nine times.

“So Hilary Rosen has been to the White House 35 times, and General Petraeus has been there nine times,” Stu said. “Here's the guy who's bailed out this President [General Petraeus] when he was in a really tough spot. He came in and took one for the team, stepped up for his country and didn't care about politics – and bailed out this President in these wars. He gets nine visits, and Hilary Rosen, the “hey, the stay at moms don't work” lady gets 35.”

“Hey ladies, how are you feeling about ‘stay at home moms have never worked a day in their life?” Glenn asked.

Rosen’s comments fit the pattern of the left. Glenn pointed out that unless you see the world their way, you’re going to be demonized. The left will find something wrong with your lifestyle or ideology to make what you’re doing seem worthless - notice the deafening silence of groups like the National Organization for Women.

Ann Romney doesn't seem to need the defense of any organization. She quickly came out and defended herself yesterday by joining Twitter (@AnnDRomney) and releasing a statement saying, "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work." This started a firestorm on twitter, and had the left backpedaling so fast they couldn't help but trip all over each other.

“I think I like Ann more than I like Mitt,” Glenn said. “She’s a pretty strong woman.”

Glenn noted that she suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, something the liberal media would have quickly pointed out if a conservative had attack a mother of five for staying home and raising her children. Ann is also a breast cancer survivor.

“Will the press even do anything about it?” Glenn asked.

“Of course not,” Pat said.

“This is a bad one though,” Stu said. “As you're trying to pitch your sell to women across the United States, you're this insulting? This is the attitude they've carried throughout the campaign. They always demean the stay-at-home mom. It’s always a secondary choice and something they don’t like. And here it is, in it's most overt stance. And immediately the administration comes out and says, well this is just an advisor. We don't agree with these comments.’ Really?”

Stu pointed out the hypocrisy of this White House that didn’t seem to have any problem coming out and exploiting Romney’s advisor who made the ‘etch-a-sketch’ comment. However, when it is one of the Obama Administration’s advisors, the media backs off quietly.

This wasn’t a comment about one person running for President, this was a comment that belittled women all across this country doing the best they can to raise their kids and take care of their families.

“You want to talk about a war on women? Not only did they say this to Ann Romney. But they took everybody that works at home, and everybody who is home schooling,” Glenn said. “Every woman who is strong and stays at home, they're now adding on top of it the real war on women, which is the subtle war of the demeaning and the degrading of those women and their choices.”

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
