Gov. Cuomo attacks "assault" weapons with seemingly no knowledge of what they are

Liberal New York Governor Andrew Cuomo delivered a fiery attack on against "assault" rifles during his State of the State address yesterday.

"I know, I know that the issue of gun control is hard.  I know it's political.  I know it's controversial, but we are proposing today common sense measures!  And I say to you forget the extremists.  It's simple!  No one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs…"

No one hunts with an assault rifle? Really, Gov. Cuomo? Someone clearly didn't do their research before delivering this address — that, or he thinks the citizens of New York State are too stupid to know better.

"Everyone who is a hunter, I would like you to verify and send a letter to this pinhead, the governor of New York, who has no clue what an assault rifle even is," Glenn said to his radio audience. "What is an assault rifle?  Let me tell you what an assault rifle is.  An assault rifle is something that if you spray paint it black, it looks spooky. If you spray paint it green and camouflage, it doesn't look spooky. If you remove the plastic black stock and you put a wood stock in it, it's a hunting rifle. It's a hunting rifle. If you have an AR‑15, you're damn right you go and shoot a deer with it. It's a rifle! Assault rifle? Who was it that started calling them assault rifles, do you suppose? It was the left that needed a term to call them."

Glenn continued to explain that if you go into a gun store you can get the exact same rifles in camo and in black. The camo rifle looks clearly like a hunting rifle, while the black one looks "scary".

All automatic rifles are being painted to look like mass murdering machine guns by politicians and the mainstream media.

"An AR‑15 is just a rifle unless it has a fully automatic switch on it and then it becomes a machine gun," Glenn explained. "But you can't buy that. You can't buy the new ones."

Stu also noted that the old ones (pre-1986) can only be purchased with a collectors license, or you have to be rich to get them. Their cost is insane due to their scarcity — nearly $20,000, maybe more.

"Make a promise to yourself that you will stop calling rifles assault weapons," Glenn asked of listeners. "Stop calling them assault weapons.  They are rifles.  That's all they are.  Rifles."

Assault rifles, rifles, whatever they're being called by the press, there is really no explanation why they're being discussed so heavily outside of opportunism. This giant gun debate really ramped up after Sandy Hook. The shooter at Sandy Hood did not use an assault rifle.

The point is, the term "assault" weapon is not only irrelevant to this case, but it's a game being used by progressives. If they change the language they can change the argument — they do it every time.

"It is a progressive game," Glenn said. "So stop using 'assault weapons'. I don't care if the State calls it an 'assault weapons' ban. It's not an assault weapons ban. It is an automatic weapons ban."

Did Biden just let slip that record-high gas prices were PLANNED?

President Joe Biden on Monday appeared to praise record-high gas prices, saying it's all part of an “incredible transition” that will make America and the world better off.

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden explained during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Tokyo.

Twitter wasn't buying Biden's most recent bunch of malarkey:





Glenn Beck has long been warning that progressive policies and regulations intended to cripple the fossil fuel industry would lead to skyrocketing oil and gas prices — and it's all by design. Back in 2008, President Barack Obama all but admitted as much when he said energy costs would "necessarily skyrocket” under his cap-and-trade plan.

On a recent episode of BlazeTV's "Glenn Beck Program," Glenn explained why he believes the current oil and gas catastrophe is all "part of the plan," as leftists continue to push their radical ESG agenda.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.
