Starbucks - 1, Mike Bloomberg - 0 UPDATED

Another one of Mayor Bloomberg's big government bans is about to go into effect. Starting tomorrow, resident's of America's largest city will no longer be able to purchase "sugary" drinks larger than 16oz. All restaurants and stores that receive a letter grade from the health department will face

Here's what Mike Bloomberg had to say about the new regulations on Face the Nation with CBS's Bob Schieffer this weekend:

"And all we're doing in New York is reminding you that it's not in your interest to have too many empty calories.  You're going to have some.  If you want to have 32 ounces, just by two 16‑ounce cups, take them back to your sink.  You want a 64 ounces, take four cups back.  But what's likely to happen here is you'll take one and probably not come back for the second.  But it's totally your choice.  We're not banning anything.  It's called portion control."

"Anybody get the key phrase there from Michael Bloomberg, mayor McFascist?" Pat asked after hearing the audio clip.

"It's not in your best interest."

Does "Great and Powerful" Bloomberg really not think fining businesses, eliminating options for customers, and making businesses small and large throw thousands of dollars of products out the window is "restricting"? Nope. According to the Mayor banning that certain size of beverages be sold isn't "banning", it's just "portion control".

"You remind people about something by, what, posting a sign?  Not restricting their choices," Stu noted.

"I just…I don't know how he's not impeached," Pat said.

(Neither does this Atlanta born New Yorker…but then again, I come from the birthplace of Coca-Cola where this would never fly.)

"New York gets everything…everything they deserve," Glenn emphasized.

It's true. This is exactly what New Yorkers voted for -- 3x. Mike Bloomberg didn't wake up this year and turn into Captain Regulation. He's been re-elected twice — yes, TWICE. In fact, he changed the term limit laws to allow his 3rd term run and was STILL re-elected.

And while New Yorkers may not rise up to make their voices heard, Starbucks is. They've taken the city of New York to court.

"If Starbucks gets it overturned, great," Glenn said. "But if they don't, Starbucks should send the message: 'New York is not that important to us'."

Glenn explained that because of the way the Supreme Courts rules on legislation, these types of regulations always that progressives continues to push and push and push, spread nationally.

"The reason why they [progressives] are doing this is because they will then come back and say common sense states, like Colorado, are already doing this.  And the Supreme Court is already saying that they go and they look at international law and what the states are doing," Glenn explained to listeners.

Pat added that if food chains like McDonalds, Burger King, and Wendy's banded together to pulled out of these states [like New York], or simply put the pressure on that they would pull out of these cities, the law would change.

But if they don't, and the law expands to more than just New York, their menus are going to change nationwide and this law is going to impact you — not just New York.

"I think that's the design of Bloomberg," Stu added. "That's why he loves his job so much."

**Update**

Lucky for sugary drink lovers (and lovers of making their own decisions), as of 3:16pm ET, TheBlaze.com is reporting that a judge has overturned New York City's proposed ban on all sugary drinks larger than 16oz.

The judge said on Monday that Mayor Michael Bloomberg's attempts at "portion control" were both "arbitrary" and "capricious".

New Yorkers should probably assume that, while this method may not have worked, Bloomberg's efforts won't be stopped just yet.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

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.

*Warning: graphic content*

"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!"
