Hilary Rosen: The worst PR person ever

Is there a war on women? If so who started the war on women? Well according to the now infamous (and 35x visitor to the White House) Hilary Rosen, the Republicans are spreading it around – duh!

This morning on radio Glenn took another look at Rosen’s most recent CNN comments that have caused such a stir across the country, and turned the focus to a portion of her statement that no one is paying attention to.

Before attacking Ann Romney, here is what Rosen said:

“Well, first, can we just get rid of this word, “war on women”? The Obama campaign does not use it, President Obama does not use it — this is something that the Republicans are accusing people of using, but they’re actually the ones spreading it.”

Jonah Goldberg, who Glenn describes as “one of the brightest guys he knows,” wrote an article on National Review that claims Rosen’s statements are not entirely accurate.

For example, a fundraising email from non-other than Nancy Pelosi says this:

“We're close to an incredible milestone in the campaign to stop extremism.  Contribute $3 before midnight. Together, we'll put an end to the Republicans unrelenting war on women, seniors and the middle class.”

“Sure, you can find one example,” Pat joked as Glenn started reading example number two.

"These guys are dangerous. They’ll do anything whether it’s waging a war on women or imploding our economy.’ That’s from James Carville," Glenn said.

Glenn reads another example from Goldberg’s National Review piece – this time from Donna Brazille:

"The right wing will do anything to destroy president Obama including waging war on women."

"Romney is the most radically anti-woman candidate in a generation," Glenn reads. "He supports banning all abortions, backs so called personhood, blah, blah, blah, wants to stop preventative services like cancer screenings for millions of women."

Where did that quote come from? It couldn’t be from anything associated with the White House, because, like Hilary Rosen told us, the ‘war on women’ is being spread by the Republicans. It’s just from the obscure website …BarackObama.com.

“But there is no war on women,” Pat said sarcastically. “It’s fabricated by the Republican Party.”

The logic is really astounding, as Glenn points out.  “The Republicans are scaring the American people by saying that the Democrats are saying there's a war on women that the Republicans are waging, because the Republicans want to stop all cancer treatments and screenings for women.” Got that?

“I don't understand that logic,” Glenn said ..and it’s hard to imagine that anyone else does either.

“You want to talk about conspiracy theory,” Glenn joked, “that's pretty deep.”

Stu pointed out that if anyone can pull off that kind of logic, it’s Hilary Rosen. After all, unlike Ann Romney, she had one of the most difficult jobs in the country – making sure that the healthcare law had a good image. Granted, she failed at that.

“Only 72% of people think it’s unconstitutional,” Stu said. “You’ll remember the wonderful job she did helping PR during the BP oil spill for BP, and BP did really well through that.”

“The Democrats hired the worst PR person ever,” Glenn said.

Of course we don’t know that the Hilary Rosen from the BP spill is the same Hilary Rosen in this situation. “To be fair, they know several Hilary Rosens,” Stu joked.

“I mean, she works for the DNC,” Glenn started, “and the DNC has issued a refrigerator magnet.  But what does it say?” he asked Stu.

“It says …stop the Republican war on women,” Stu answered.

To summarize the wisdom we've gotten from Hilary Rosen the last couple of days: Hilary Rosen says that Republicans are fabricating a war on women. Hilary Rosen does PR for the DNC. The DNC is selling a magnet that says "Stop the Republican War on Women." Hilary Rosen should probably stop telling Ann Romney how unqualified she is to speak on certain topics...

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:

Our police officers are called racists, killers, and murderers even if all the evidence suggests the opposite is true. With the bodycam footage and information we have so far, it looks like the Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant "is a hero," Glenn Beck said.

On the radio program, Glenn, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray discussed the fatal shooting of the 16-year-old who appeared to be about to stab another girl when the officer shot her. They agreed that the officer arrived at an extremely chaotic scene, and within seconds was able to identify the threat and react. But that hasn't prevented the Left from demonizing him — like LeBron James tweeting the officer's photo and saying "you're next."

Glenn went on to say it's time for the Fraternal Order of Police to stand with its officers and for Columbus police temporarily to walk from the job to show the Left and the media unity for the officer currently under investigation.

"I want you to either call or maybe you tweet today, 'Police we support you. I stand with the police. #Istandwiththepolice.' Our police are under attack," Glenn stated.

"And let me tell you something, police officers, if you are a racist and you're out shooting people, I will be the first to come and say, 'put that guy in prison' ... but the vast majority of police officers are good and competent," he continued. "And they're doing their best. And they're risking their lives for us. I stand with the police!"

"Make sure you let your local police officers know that," Glenn added. "And FOP, I'm telling you, you have to do a strike in some of these cities, and Columbus would be a really good place to do it. ... You have got to send a message to the media and everyone else. One day without police in one of these cities and you see what happens. You don't want the police? You want to 'reimagine' the police? Go ahead! Until the White House stops this nonsense, walk."

A shocking report from Yahoo News recently exposed a covert operation to track Americans' social media posts for "inflammatory" content — carried out by the U.S. Postal Service.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere broke down what we know about the USPS' surveillance effort, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (or iCOP), and the role it plays in providing other federal agencies with information on "right-wing leaning" accounts, among other data, and asked: Who exactly authorized the U.S. Postal Service to monitor the internet?

"It was found out yesterday and released in a story by Yahoo News, the United States Postal Service is apparently tracking social media posts as part of a clandestine program, searching for inflammatory messages," Glenn began. "Wait, the Postal Service has a clandestine operation going on?"

Glenn read highlights from the Yahoo report, noting that iCOP has quietly had analysts combing through various social media sites, particularly those considered "right-wing leaning," looking for "inflammatory" postings and then sharing information with other government agencies.

"The Postal Service is now spying on you. But no big deal, right?" Glenn added sarcastically.

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
