Op-Ed: Exposing the real ‘TRAY-VESTY’

By Meg Storm

TRAY-VESTY. That was the quippy headline plastered on the front cover of the New York Post on Sunday morning. Meanwhile, so-called journalists and legal experts flooded the airwaves using words like “stunning,” “shocking,” and “surprising” to describe the jury’s decision to acquit George Zimmerman.

But the most “stunning,” “shocking,” and “surprising” aspect of this sensationalized trial is not that Zimmerman is now a free man (though it’s safe to say his life has been irreparably changed). The most “stunning,” “shocking,” and “surprising” aspect of this trial is the overwhelming hypocrisy of the media and the leaders of the black community when it comes to race and justice.

The disturbing trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, was almost completely ignored by the mainstream media because it was considered a “local crime story.”

Forget about the fact that Gosnell was primarily murdering minority babies. Forget about the fact that Gosnell operated two separate offices – one for wealthy clients, who were primarily white, and one for poorer clients, who were primarily not white. It took weeks of horrid testimony for “news” outlets like ABC, CBS, and NBC to even acknowledge the trial existed.

Likewise, we never heard a peep from President Obama about the Gosnell trial. Instead, Press Secretary Jay Carney told us, "The president does not and cannot take a position on an ongoing trial, so I won't as well.”


I could speculate for days about why the media and the president didn’t want to comment on a story that exposed the underbelly of abortion. Heaven forbid they appear to be waging a “war on women” – but that is another story for another day.

One thing, however, is certain. The “local crime story” and “the president can’t comment on an ongoing trial” logic was not extended to the George Zimmerman trial.

"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon,” President Obama said earlier this year. "I think [Trayvon's parents] are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened."

Yes, if President Obama had a son, he could look like Martin. But as President of the United States, he was out-of-line to insert himself into the national conversation.

So-called leaders of the black community, like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, were already rallying in the streets, demanding justice for a young black male killed at the hands of a middle-aged man of mixed ethnicity, and all the president did was add fuel to that fire. President Obama should have known better.

Looking specifically at the actions of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson in the aftermath of Trayvon Martin’s death, one cannot help but be discouraged by the state of racial politics.

“I think that this is an atrocity… It is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen,” Sharpton said Saturday night. “What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime... and be killed and someone can claim self-defense... we had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when he's exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted.”

He went on to add that Saturday was "a sad day in the country" and "a slap in the face to those that believe in justice in this country."

Jackson sang a similar tune. In an interview with KPNX he said, “[Zimmerman] pursued him. Police told him to not. He did it over their objections. Ultimately he killed him. Now he walks away free… Here’s an unarmed young man going home, attending his business. Zimmerman assumes he should not be in the neighborhood. He actually lives there – that’s what racial profiling is… I would think there might be a civil suit filed, no doubt. There will be justice department intervention, no doubt. So this case really is… is not over.”

As a country, we have come a long way from the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and ‘60s. While tragedies like this expose that we still have a long way to go, we must be able to trust that our media will be able to provide an objective account of what is otherwise an emotional issue. And we must also be able to trust that our federal government will not insert itself into cases for political gain.

In the case of the George Zimmerman trial, this was simply not true.

One can only hope we learn from these mistakes.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
