Delay, control, and interrogate: Hillary Clinton testifies on Benghazi

It's been four months since the 9/11 attacks in Libya that killed four Americans, including an Ambassador. Holding the hearings prior to the elections was viewed as too much of a "distraction", so Congress waiting. Then she was traveling, so Congress had to wait. Then Hillary had health problems, and again, Congress waited.

How long has Hillary Clinton known she was going to have to testify?

"Do you think she knew she'd be asked WHY Americans were misled about WHAT occurred leading up to the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi?" Glenn asked. "Remember, there are two questions. 'What happened?', but the more important question is 'Why?' Why did this happen?"

It's a fair assumption that Hillary not only knew what questions to expect — the GOP had been asking them on national news outlets for months — but, she was also thoroughly coached on her responses.

By the time Secretary of State Clinton took to the stand yesterday, she knew the tone, the emotions, and the words that she needed to express them in to shut down opposition and give the press their headlines.

"And so when the time came to perform, she did," Glenn said.

"No, you need to find out why, Madam Secretary," Glenn jabbed after quoting her emotional response yesterday.

Everything from Hillary Clinton's mannerisms to her glasses seemed planned and rehearsed. It's all about image with the mainstream media. Does she still look sick? Smart? Frail? Does she seem defensive and angry or poised and collected?

"Yesterday I told you when I just saw a little bit of the hearings that she had been coached by some very good handlers.  But I think these handlers are even better than I thought.  I think she's been coached by somebody in the intelligence community," Glenn told listeners.

Glenn explained that counterintelligence interrogator techniques are specific. There's a specific chapter that discusses how to spot and react to a source that is trying to deceive you. Essentially, if someone is trying to deceive you, how do you spot them: Delay, control, and interrogate.

"This is what the State Department and the military do for a living," Glenn said. "If you are a counterintelligence interrogator, you'll know clever sources will attempt to delay, control, and then interrogate the interrogator. You can never let them get the upper hand or they will win. Delay."

Control: "A clever source will control the topic by asking other questions and redirecting," Glenn continued. "Pretty soon the sources directing the interrogation are not the interrogator. This puts both the source in control and also delays."

And interrogate. The source fires back with a accusation to gain more control. Glenn gave the example from Senator Marco Rubio's questioning yesterday when he asked, "What have you done to ensure security at Benghazi before the attack?" Her answer was delayed and vague: "I'll have to get that information to you later, Senator."

Sen. Ron Johnson's questioning made headlines yesterday after he drilled Hillary on how the American people were misled to believe the attacks occurred as a reaction to an offensive video on YouTube.

"She immediately responds emotionally and with a flurry of questions. She's trying to take the control and the initiative away from Sen. Johnson", Glenn explained. "And her big question was, and probably the most rehearsed part of it, the question was probably deliberately designed to redirect and gain control."

"Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some Americans?"

She completely avoids the subject at hand, that the American people were lied to. She doesn't even go there. Now the question, is 'does that even matter now? What difference does that make?

"She changes the original question with one of her own," Glenn points out. "She changes the question to:  Why did the militants do this?  I don't know.  That wasn't the question.  But she has ‑‑ she has come and with outrage, she has come with tears, and she has turned it around on the interrogator.  And then she changes the question.  By the end you don't know what he said.  He's the bad guy."

There were at least one or two highlights to come out of yesterday's hearing. Senator Rand Paul grill the Secretary of State on the lack of accountability and leadership in the department, and he let her know exactly what he would have done after hearing the details of how the State Department handled the situation. He would have fired her.

A representative from Texas even asked the number one question — the question that defines why this event could even take place. Why was the ambassador in Benghazi and not at the embassy, under protection, in the first place? Why was he there — alone — on September 11th?

But time had run out. They moved right passed it.

Delay, control, and interrogate. Clinton did this time and time again yesterday. Clinton won.

"She was coached to deceive," Glenn said. "I bet my life on it. Too bad the senators and congressmen weren't coached to catch her deception."

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.
