CBS' Lara Logan calls out Washington for lies: "They [Islamic extremists] are as strong as ever."

Lara Logan has a note for America:

"They [the Taliban and other Islamic operatives] are as strong as ever."

CBS reporter Lara Logan is the war time journalist who endured a horrific ordeal in Egypt last summer when she was beaten and sexually assaulted by a mob of angry Egyptian men during the Arab Spring celebrations.

Logan gave a keynote address at the Better Government Association annual luncheon last Tuesday, delivering what the Chicago Sun Times called “a provocative speech” to some 1,100 movers in government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. She explained that the Taliban, al Qaeda and its proxies haven’t gone away and are re-energized and coming back in force.

The brave CBS reporter also informed the crowd that a “lie” is being propagated by the American government.

Here are some of her remarks:

“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated…” Logan announced. The lie is that the U.S. military has tamed the Taliban.

“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan began. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,“ who claim ”they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban.”

“It’s such nonsense!”

"She is a remarkable woman," Glenn said this morning. "If this isn't an indictment on Barack Obama, and everybody in Washington on both sides that are not telling the truth."

Logan went on to say that people have been duped into believing that the threat of radical Islam is merely a thing of the past, saying:

“You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think you write the script.”

Lara Logan seems to be one of the only reporters telling Americans the truth in the mainstream media. But is anyone listening?

"I've got to believe she's a little pissed," Glenn said. "She goes over [to Egypt] and all of her colleagues are saying, 'this is great.' And quite honestly, let's be real, we had an American woman, a journalist, raped in the streets by a mob, and our journalistic system completely broke down — there were stories here and there, but really? And you know what they used as an excuse? 'We don't want to hurt her anymore.' Really?"

The Sun Times reported:

Logan stepped way out of the “objective,” journalistic role. The audience was riveted as she told of plowing through reams of documents, and interviewing John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan; Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and a Taliban commander trained by al-Qaida. The Taliban and al-Qaida are teaming up and recruiting new terrorists to do us deadly harm, she reports. [...] She made a passionate case that our government is downplaying the strength of our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as a rationale of getting us out of the longest war.

Glenn pointed out that Lara Logan pointed to the lies coming out of Washington over the last two years — not the last four years.

"What happened two years ago?" Glenn asked.

Arab Spring.

Glenn backed up Logan's comments, noting that following the attack on our embassy in Libya, it was CNN, not an American national security team that went into compound and retrieved journals from the ambassador.

"The president knew. The White House knew. They rejected security. Then they came out and they blame it on the film."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

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.
