The complete hypocrisy in the media's coverage of Hillary vs Republicans

How the media reacts to a story reveals a lot. When they don’t react, it speaks even louder. The day the Planned Parenthood video broke, no mainstream media outlet bothered to cover the story. It wasn’t until an entire day later that they begrudgingly began reporting on it. Now, from a media perspective, you’ve got shocking video. It’s undercover. There’s corruption. There’s murder. There’s no question that this has to be a must-cover story, but protecting the unborn isn’t high on the media’s priority list, so they ignored it.

But they wasted no my time leaping into action when Sandra Bland died in police custody after a routine traffic stop. That was labeled a suicide from the get-go, but the media refuse to accept that answer. Slate wrote about the history of the sheriff. USA Today wrote, “Sandra Bland laid to rest as questions arise.” Hillary Clinton blamed hard truths about race and justice. Listen.

Hillary Clinton: It’s heartbreaking to read about another death of a young woman, Sandra Bland, in Texas, another young African-American life cut short, and that’s why I think it is essential that we all stand up and say loudly and clearly yes, black lives matter. We all have a responsibility to face these hard truths about race injustice honestly and directly.

Oh yes, that’s what she’s all about, honestly and directly, whether it’s race injustice or her email or anything else. You know, the New York Times went deep into the history to try and prove a race narrative in the Sandra Bland case, “Texas County’s racial past is seen as a prelude to Sandra Bland’s death.” The research done here is notable. Significant staff and resources were assigned to the story. They had to further the media narrative that police are gunning down African-Americans for sport.

Immediately after the theater shooting in Louisiana, the media went into anti-Second Amendment mode right away. “Movie theater shooter’s mental problems didn’t stop gun buy.” NPR’s story, “Theater shooting highlights high rate of gun deaths in Louisiana.” Now, they wondered if a high rate of gun ownership was indeed the problem in the state. Oh yeah.

The next thing you know, the national media conversation morphed into a juvenile debate on should we have guns or not. I thought that debate had been settled since 1791, but these statists don’t want an armed citizenry, so naturally this is where the media angle veers towards after any shooting, even when there’s a much more compelling, significant storyline, like the tragic shooting in Chattanooga where four Marines and a sailor were senselessly murdered.

When the killer’s name was released, Mohammed Yousef Abdul Aziz, the media suddenly didn’t seem so vigorous in its research. There were no teams deployed, no extra staff digging into Mohammed’s life. There was a sort of aversion to labeling this a terrorist attack, an aversion that stretched all the way up to the White House.

The media found every opportunity to label him just a normal kid. The Washington Post said this wasn’t part of jihad but rather the work of an “aimless young man who came from a troubled home and struggled to hold down a job after college,” as if that isn’t the experience of millions of other American young American men who don’t shoot up military recruiting stations.

Federal investigators have dismissed the possibility of terrorism despite the fact that according to the New York Post, yep, not the Times or NPR, property records show the mosque Mohammed attended was affiliated with the same Islamic group as the mosques the Boston Marathon bombers went to and the hijackers who hit the Pentagon on 9/11.

The common link is the American Islamic Trust, who the DOJ named as a co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial. That led to several convictions of US-based Hamas terrorist leaders. Basically they were funneling money to terrorists in Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and radicalizing people here in the states. The evidence is ample. We’ll get into the details coming up in a few minutes.

They make media’s rush to settle for the troubled teen angle all the more head scratching. Equally head scratching is the media’s desire to coddle and protect Hillary Clinton. I mean, this is a woman who just roped off the media like cattle. You’d think they’d have an ax to grind. Apparently not. The media says Hillary’s email saga is too complex, and it’s really hard to understand. So, it’s basically not a scandal at all. For it to be a scandal, we need to make up catchy banners for it, and besides, we’re busy finding ways to get Donald Trump into the news cycle.

Then out of nowhere, the New York Times dropped a bombshell. They wandered, they strayed from the approved statist line and published an exclusive report about a potential criminal investigation into Hillary’s email account. They claim that two inspectors general had requested a criminal investigation into whether Hillary mishandled sensitive government information, and yes, emailing classifying info over your Yahoo or Gmail is definitely mishandling top-secret information.

So, it looked bad, and then Hillary Clinton’s team called up the New York Times and complained. And would you believe it, they gave in to every complaint and rewrote the article. Look, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that the only possible reason to have a private email account as Secretary of State on which you are conducting your Secretary of State business is to do exactly what Hillary is doing right now, avoid and stave off any inquiries or investigations into wrongdoing. I mean, it’s so blatant even Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC conceded as much.

VIDEO

W: Is it possible Andrea, that the media analysts and others have underestimated the impact of this email situation on Hillary Clinton’s campaign?

Andrea Mitchell: I think so. Look, you have two inspectors general, and they are referring this to the Justice Department. Now, you can try to confuse it, and there’s been a lot of misdirection. There’s been inaccurate reporting significantly on Thursday night by the New York Times. It’s not a criminal referral, not at this stage. It could become, and it could become nothing. What they are suggesting is that there were classified—four out of the forty randomly selected had classified information, and it was not information that was later upgraded to be classified. It was information that was classified as “secret,” which is a level of classification at the time.

She admitted it but is still sort of meh about the whole thing. No one seems to be pointing out the gravity of the situation. I mean, here you have highly sensitive information being put at risk. Four out of forty randomly selected emails from Hillary’s private account had classified information—10%. Imagine what’s in the rest of the tens of thousands of emails, including all the ones she deleted, by the way.

During my time in the CIA, we were constantly reminded over and over again about what’s at stake with the protection of this sort of information, and we knew that there were very serious sanctions if you failed to protect classified. But Hillary’s flippantly out there on GChat or whatever spilling this stuff on unsecured networks. The media should be incensed, but Hillary Clinton herself in March said this:

VIDEO

Hillary Clinton: I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material, so I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material.

Yes, that’s not true of, of course. That’s not true based on what we already know, but you see, if it’s not classified, it doesn’t mean that information is not classified. Classification is a process. The information has a sensitivity level, and that sensitivity level determines what the classification would be. So, if Hillary emails a pal what the nuclear codes are, even if she doesn’t write classified on it, it’s still classified. So, if she’s using her Gmail account to send all this stuff to people and not using any operational security whatsoever, just putting this out there on the open web, guess what, that information is still classified even if it doesn’t have a stamp that says top-secret at the top of it.

These are the sorts of inconsistencies that you would think would fuel the media skepticism on a story, and it might actually cause them to investigate it a little further. Look at the vigor with which the media went after other scandals involving very high-profile politicians. Chris Christie, how long have we had to deal with bridgegate? Scott Walker has a long-term investigation into those around him because of a convoluted series of allegations about how he’s moved money around and campaign coordination. Oh, they’ve got a name for this too, by the way, “Scott Walker’s dark money problem.” Ooh, spooky.

Rick Perry, of course, they opened an abuse of power investigation into him, but Hillary, when it comes to her, it’s complicated, depends on what your definition of classified is.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books.

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
