"Where's the outrage?" Glenn reacts to media coverage of Chris Lane murder

Over the weekend there was a disturbing report of a college student who was randomly shot dead by a gang of teens "just for the fun of it." We now know this young man to be 23-year-old, Australian student Chris Lane.

Lane was visiting the United States on a baseball scholarship. He was killed while jogging in a small Oklahoma town Friday night after visiting his girlfriend, Sarah Harper, of four years. Witnesses saw Lane stumble across the road and collapse, and one woman attempted CPR, but the Australian student never made it to the hospital. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The teens responsible for mercilessly gunning down Chris Harper are James Edwards - 15, Chancey Luna - 16, and Michael Jones - 17, one of which reportedly told police that they committed the ruthless act "for the fun of it."

Despite the reports that Lane was clearly targeted for an act of senseless violence, the media seems to lack outrage any outrage. (Well…most of the media. Piers Morgan did go on one of his typical anti-gun rants, despite the fact that all of the shooters were too young to legally purchase a firearm.)

Glenn highlighted the lack of outrage from the media this morning on radio, noting the hypocrisy between this and the Trayvon Martin coverage. He explained that when the story broke, he was discussing the media coverage with one of TheBlaze editors and noted that the media hasn't been talking about the killers who were so bold and shameless to say they killed Lane out of "boredom" or "for the fun of it."

Not that Glenn is really buying into the "boredom" comments. The social media activity of one of the suspected killers around the time of the murder describes how angry he was.

"It seems like such a senseless kill," Glenn said this morning. "What happened? What happened?  And the story was, is that three teenagers were out and they just decided to kill him for sport.  They just decided to kill him because they were bored.  That was the story.  And didn't have any names, didn't have any pictures, didn't have anything.  And so I sent it back and I said, "Something's missing here. Tell me anything about these kids other than they were just crazy teenagers. Tell me anything about them.  Can you?"  Well, I could find it.  I found the story.  Not in news, not in American news.  I found the story in Australia, and I sent it back to the editors and said, "Tell me about this one.  Does Australia have the story right?  And if so, why is no one reporting this story?"  Knowing the answer:  It doesn't fit the American news agenda."

"Authorities now have formally charged three teenagers yesterday afternoon for gunning down Australia student Chris Lane just for the fun of it.  James Edwards, 15; Chancey Luna 16, charged with first‑degree murder and face life in prison," Glenn continued. "They are being held without bond.  Michael Jones, 17, reportedly charged with using a vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a weapon, an accessory after the fact of murder in the first degree.  He reportedly said in court, "I pulled the trigger," but the judge told him to remain silent.  The boy cried and his bond was set at $1 million.  Three teens will be tried as adults.  A social networking page appeared ‑‑ appearing to belong to Edwards revealed a video of Edwards brandishing a gun, as well as multiple photos showing piles of cash that he says belongs to him."

"Has the president made a statement on this?" Pat asked after Glenn finished explaining the story. "Did he come out and say that if I had an illegitimate child with a white woman, he might have looked like Chris Lane? "

The unfortunate answer to that question is 'no'. But not only has the President not issued a statement, despite Lane being an international student and Australia showing outrage over the evil crime, the Obama White House apparently has no idea who Chris Lane is.

"Where is Al Sharpton?  Where is anybody else?  Where is anyone?  Where is the outrage on this?"

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
