CNN: Dorner ‘had a point’; rampage was ‘exciting’

Common sense would seem to dictate that the police pursuit that ended in the death of cop-killer Chris Dorner would be met with praise. But not if you watched CNN! They sympathized with Dorner, concluding that he ‘had a point’ with his grievance. One CNN commentator even called the pursuit ‘exciting’ because Dorner was a ‘real life super hero’ to many people. Glenn reacted to the news on radio this morning.

During an appearance on CNN, HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill said, “This has been an important conversation that we’ve had about police brutality, about police corruption, about state violence."

“As far as Dorner himself goes, he’s been like a real life superhero to many people,” Hill continued.

Hill also said that "when you read his manifesto, when you read the message that he left, he wasn’t entirely crazy."

“It’s almost like watching ‘Django Unchained’ in real life,” he explained. “It’s kind of exciting.”

Hill did pay lip service to the idea that the killing of innocent people was wrong, but his comments indicated that overall he was entertained by the whole tragedy.

"If this were happening and this guy, this cop, were not a leftist, you know what the coverage would have been last night?" Glenn asked. "The coverage last night would have been they finally got this guy and here's what he said in his manifesto. Listen to this crazy talk. Listen to what he said in his manifesto,"

"His manifesto is anti‑cop, anti‑government. His manifesto is the rantings of a madman. Now, who else is he connected to? Was he ever watching Fox? Was he ever listening to Rush Limbaugh? Because how many more of these guys are out there? And then they would have run all of the stories that they could possibly find about the violence from the right. They would have covered everything," Glenn said.

"But instead they are quoting a crazy killer's manifesto and saying he's making some ‑‑ he's making some good points," Glenn continued.

"The biggest, the number one problem in America is the indoctrination in America. All the way from Hollywood to the news. And you know what? When you're alone, when you're just a blogger, when you have just a few websites that are just mocked all the time, those few websites can't create enough momentum to keep a story alive. They can't. Because they're constantly being mocked and ridiculed. And the silence is deafening. And people, because they don't trust the news anymore, don't watch it. Instead they get it from Jon Stewart."

"At TheBlaze we've been ‑‑ we're working tirelessly to get it right, and sometimes we screw it up. But the things that we're working on that we're planning, we'll eventually shut these guys down. And they will run to the government, and they will try to limit people like me, places like TheBlaze, they will use the FCC and they will use new regulation, they will use scare tactics, bullying tactics. They will bully not only us as a business but they will bully any sponsors or anybody else."

Glenn predicted that as mainstream media outlets lose viewers and readers to online citizen journalists, they will eventually run to the federal government for a bailout and claim that it's important to keep these outdated news institutions alive.

"And believe me, the United States government will bail the journalists out. They will bail out the New York Times because it's the paper of record, you know. And they will bail them out and they will become even more Pravda‑like."

"They lose as long as we have the Internet. They lose as long as the Internet remains free. The bullies on the right and the bullies on the left lose, as long as you are free to speak your mind and tell the truth. It's going to get harder and harder to do that," Glenn said.

Glenn said despite the struggle ahead in the fight for freedom, the challenges will ultimately mold people who seek truth into something strong.

"How lucky we are to be able to be pushed and prodded. And to find what we really, truly mean, to find what we truly believe, to find what's worth fighting for," Glenn explained. "Soft times made us lazy, but hard times will make us who we really are."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
