Jay Carney has no answer for James Rosen: “I know we are creating an exchange here for Fox”

We have all seen White House Press Secretary Jay Carney belittle any and every reporter who chooses to question the motives or actions of the Obama Administration, and yesterday was no different.

When Fox News reporter James Rosen asked Carney about the current congressional investigation into the September 11, 2012 Benghazi terror attack, Carney dismissed the findings, which indicate U.S. military posturing around the world was ‘poor’ on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, as a partisan attack on behalf of Republicans. Carney added Republicans have been politicizing the attack since it occurred.

CARNEY: The core statement is a reflection of an assessment made by Republicans who have, as you know attempted unfortunately to make this a partisan issue. And I would simply say when it comes to -- and I know that we're creating an exchange here for Fox, and I'm mindful of that. But allow me to suggest the questions about the posturing of defense forces are usually better addressed at the Pentagon.

ROSEN: My question to you, Jay, is first of all, what we're engaged in here is not for Fox. It's for the record. And the fact that the posturing was such that it made remedy or rescue in that situation impossible is not a conclusion solely of the house armed services committee or of Republicans. It's a self-evident fact. So all I'm trying to ask you is with respect to these meetings that the President had with key national security principals the day before those attacks, how is it possible that you can maintain that adequate steps were taken vis-a-vis force posture by the commander-in-chief and his aides when, in fact, the posture is now universally acknowledged to have been such that it made remedy or rescue impossible?

CARNEY: Again, James, I think I said very clearly that there was not adequate security --

“I can't take it,” Glenn said. “All I wanted you to hear was Jay Carney, again, isolating the person who asks in the room any tough question.”

In his dismissal of Rosen, Carney employs a tactic straight out of the Rules for Radicals playbook: Isolate.

“And he's done it before. Just last week didn't he say, you know, ‘Asking a question like that really, really brings into question your intelligence,’” Glenn explained. “But he never said that to the guy who was like, you know the 8-year-old question about Mommy. Who was that guy from Mediaite? Tommy Christopher. He never said, ‘You know, asking a question like that really brings into question your intelligence.’ Which, it does.”

Glenn is referring to the questions posed by Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher on Tuesday, in which Christopher asked Carney if there was a chance President Obama would be willing to delay Obamacare for a year if Republicans were to agree to delay heart attacks for a year?

Carney gave this horrendous question a legitimate response, but Rosen’s question, which relates to the death of four Americans, is dismissed.

“But asking a question on Benghazi, he immediately had to use Rules For Radicals,” Glenn said. “[He had to] go in and isolate and humiliate and say, ‘I question your intelligence, and any smart person here will do exactly the same.’ That's what Rules For Radicals really is.”

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
