Mike Slater discusses recall effort against San Diego Mayor under slew of sexual harassment allegations

Glenn's in San Diego today and happened to swing by City Hall. Above the door it reads, "Good government demands the intelligent interest of every citizen." To get a better Mayor it's going to take an informed and active electorate. Consider Bob Filner San Diego's wakeup call. Hopefully they take it.

Glenn's in San Diego today, one of the very, VERY few conservative places in California and, unfortunately, home of disgraced Mayor Bob Filner.

Filner, who has recently undergone a slew of sexual harassment allegations, announced he that despite the claims of kissing, groping, and assaulting women in the workplace, he will not be resigning from office.

TheBlaze.com reports,

"Filner apologized to voters, his staff and the women he allegedly harassed, but added: “Words alone are not enough. I am responsible for my conduct. And I must take responsibly for my conduct.”

The allegations resulted in widespread calls for him to resign, plunging the nation’s eighth-largest city into political turmoil.

When the allegations surfaced, Filner apologized for disrespecting women and said he needed help. But soon after, he said he was innocent of sexual harassment and resisted calls to leave office.

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee called on Filner to resign as did leaders of the San Diego Democratic party.

The former congressman was San Diego’s first Democratic mayor in 20 years."

Not a good start for San Diego's first Democrat mayor in 20 years. Hopefully the voters won't make the same mistake again. But as horrible as Filner already sounds from the reports, he's worse. And the Democrats holding him up right now aren't much better.

It's rare for conservatives to side with Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, but when it comes to this dirtbag, they do. The DNC Chairwoman called for Filner to step down, calling his behavior "reprehensible and indefensible".

Filner is less than eight months into his four-year-term, has refused to discuss the allegations and doesn't seem to see the need to step down. Instead, he will undergo therapy.

That's not sitting well with many in San Diego, who are working to gather signatures to recall the mayor. Among those leading the charge is radio personality and friend of TheBlaze, KFMB's Mike Slater. Mike joined Glenn on air in San Diego this morning to discuss not only the effort to recall Filner, but to explain to the national radio audience just how bad this guy really is.

"For 20 years he was a Congressman and was able to get away with this stuff," Slater explained. "No one paid attention to him.  He's been mayor eight months and acquisitions from my high-profile women at a dean, a -- top-notch women saying he would grab around their necks, pull them closer and try to, quote, stick his tongue down their throat. You would work better without your panties on at work tomorrow. Awful stuff."

"Did anyone file assault charges?" Glenn asked.

"Not until now," Slater answered. "We have been approaching that question a lot of different ways and we talked to a lot of women. 'If you have ever been assaulted, why didn't you come forward?' And a lot of genuine reasons. Worried for their jobs or didn't want to be branded as a "woman that Bob Filner assaulted". That's not what they wanted to be known as. And this is all about a lust for power. Eliot Spitzer, Weiner, those are lusts for sexual gratification. Bob Filner has a lust for power. Every woman he did this to, he had a position of strength over them, whether they wanted an endorsement from him or they wanted some come bane contribution organization whatever."

"A sick pig like that at the head of that city that's unbelievable," Pat interjected.

Two make matters worse, there are two women on the city council who have claimed to stand for women's rights their entire careers standing by Filner's side.

"Is there a chance this guy — this is the death of shame. We thought we lost it in the '90s.  You are seeing it in New York, which is you kind of expected; but you are seeing in San Diego, California. This is a — one of the only conservative places in California," Glenn explained.

"It's about an eight-month long recall effort to recall this man and we'll send an a message to the entire country," Slater said. "We're going to do better than this."

"Democrats are standing by him because of the progressive agenda," Glenn added. "It is a power of the collective over the individual."

'I REGRET every single step': De-transitioned teen exposes HEARTBREAKING truth of 'gender-affirming care'

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

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.
