What about my diplomatic immunity? Jill Kelley’s bizarre 9-1-1 call


Jill Kelley, a woman at the center of the CIA/FBI/military sex scandal, sure sounds stable! She's $2 million in debt from throwing parties.  She has a crazy sister who Petraeus has testified was perfectly sane. She  has a guy in the FBI who likes to send her pictures of himself in various poses of undress. Once last thing (for today): She's a socialite who apparently also is an honorary consul general. All of this is absolutely, totally normal.

CNN reports:

Kelley, it turns out, is an “honorary consul” for the South Korean government, according to the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The official South Korean news agency Yonhap reports that Kelley had "good connections and network and a willingness to develop Korea-U.S. relations, including the free trade agreement between the two nations."

South Korean officials tell CNN that “an honorary consul can generally play a role of promoting trade and economic cooperation between the two countries.”

In a phone call to authorities to complain about news vans at her Tampa home, Kelley told police: "I am an honorary consul general… I have inviolability. They should not be on my property. I don't know if you want to get diplomatic, uh, protection involved as well. It's against the law to cross my property …".

Actually, it's probably not. Diplomatic immunity only applies to official diplomat's while they are abroad and the incident took place in Florida. Plus, she's not really an official diplomat.

"Now in case you don't know what inviolability is, I had to think for a second because I believe that goes back to King George..." Glenn joked. "That means that you can't be molested or disgraced or transgressed or dishonored."

"Honey, you've been dishonored long ago," Glenn said.

"So she's got a trespasser on her property.  So obviously that's against inviolability.  She can't be violated in that way," Pat added.

" You know what's really funny is she was asking, she had somebody on the front porch and she's seriously asking for diplomatic security," Glenn said. "From the same group of people?  Really?  That we had a guy who was inside the safe room of the safe house and he was calling and saying, 'Hey, could I maybe have some security' and they let him die?  Wow.  She's got a set on her ‑‑ no, I ‑‑ I'm an honorary."

"It's really sad. She's looking for something that we couldn't get with an actual ambassador. In an actual dangerous situation, we couldn't get it.  And she wants it because somebody's on her porch.  You're not even an ambassador."

The conversation then shifted gears into whether people should be suspicious that she hired PR and legal people who had previously been involved with high profile scandals. While Glenn thinks thought it should be a warning sign, Stu said that in his experience having a crisis PR person is just smart, not necessarily something suspicious.

They argued the PR point back and forth on radio:

STU: I'm a little bit hesitant on that one, too, because, you know, we have PR people and I used to ‑‑

GLENN: I'm Glenn Beck.

STU: I know, but I used to react the same way to all those stories. Whenever someone would get in trouble, they hire this, like, crisis person who would come in and, oh, man, they must have really did something.

GLENN: No, no. No, look.

STU: It's like a person like this isn't used to controlling a media firestorm that is now a global story.

GLENN: But you ‑‑ within a day you have the attorney that defended Bill Clinton and the Michael Vick crisis PR person? I'm Glenn Beck. I don't even though who the Michael Vick crisis PR person is. My wife, she's not going to be ‑‑ if something happened, she would say, "What could we do?" And I'd be like, "I don't know, maybe we should..." I mean, really? It's like the day ‑‑ you're the victim. You're the victim, right?

STU: Yeah, but I mean, she had to have known this was coming, right? This is not day one of this to her.

GLENN: I'm sorry.

STU: I mean, they've been looking at 20,000 pages of e‑mails from her? And like, she had to know this was going on before it came out. So I mean, you know ‑‑

GLENN: If there's nothing going on, why would you think that?

STU: Because you know an investigation's going on, right?

GLENN: Who would give you ‑‑ who would give you the indication of anything?

STU: I just think it doesn't indicate ‑‑ when you're in a story like this, I no longer believe it indicates guilt to go out and get people of PR in crisis situations.

GLENN: I don't, either. I don't, either.

STU: Especially as a regular citizen have no idea how to handle some of this.

GLENN: If it was today, fine. But it was like two days ago. And she's like, "Really?" We didn't even know who she was. We didn't know who she was, and she had these guys.

STU: Right. But she had to know we would know soon, right?

GLENN: She thinks she has diplomatic immunity.

STU: Well, that's a fair point.

Regardless of her level of involvement with the scandal, this will probably not be the last we hear of the Tampa socialite as the story unfolds.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
