Media grills Ted Cruz on Colorado attack while ignoring racist terror threat in Chicago

While the press tried to corner Ted Cruz to get him to place blame of the Colorado shooting this weekend, by a disturbed man (a terrorist), on the "rhetoric of the right," something else was happening.

The University of Chicago canceled classes on Monday after a threat promising to “execute approximately 16 white male students and or staff” was discovered on the Internet.

Here is what it said:

"This is my only warning. At 10AM Monday morning, I'm going to the campus quad of the University of Chicago. I will be armed with an M-4 carbine and two desert eagles, all fully loaded. I will execute approximately 16 white male students and or staff, which is the same number of time McDonald was killed. I will then die killing any number of white policeman in the process. This is not a joke. I am to do my part and rid the world of white devils. I expect you do the same."

This is not who we are! But let's play the media game:

Now where did this come from?

In 2004 a study was done that showed that this generation was the first to be truly color blind.

Where did all the race hate come from? How about the hatred for the police?

It came from the same place and many of the exact same people that spread this disease in the 1960s.

It is now being drilled into young adults heads by the constant brain washing on the university campus, classrooms, media, MSNBC, democratic socialists, occupy democrats and many in congress and this administration.

Don't even begin to talk to me about the rhetoric of anyone until you check your own luggage at the door.

Don't talk to me about how black lives matter until you talk about the 82 people that were shot just this last weekend in Chicago. 82 people!

Don't tell me about the three that were killed in Colorado unless you also talk to me about the 15 that were gunned down and killed in Chicago this last weekend.

Don't lecture the right about how this killer was a terrorist (which I am fine with) until you can call the killer in Fort Hood, for starts, a terrorist and not a workplace shooter.

Don't talk to me about rhetoric until you stop training people to hate "white devils," the rich, the Christian and those who believe in all of the amendments of the constitution.

The political class and mainstream media just don't get it. Stop treating people as if they were idiots. They are not. Stop talking down to them and assuming you are better than they are.

If you are in the media, they pay your salary. You are supposed to be on their side exposing the bad guys, not mocking those who you serve.

Same with politicians.

Good and bad alike we will all face the same fate. Look at the universities. You cannot wind people up and then expect to control them. They are eating you first.

I am tempted to cheer as they pick off these university know it alls one by one as it seems to

me that they are getting what they deserve but in the end we all lose.

Let's stop playing the game.

Please.

We must stand together on common sense, decency and integrity.

I have already asked America for forgiveness for the role I have played in the fraying of our civil discourse. I have soul searched and am trying to do my part now to bring people together and help those in real need.

Many in the media try to paint conservatives as haters and bigots. But how many in the media know that over 120,000 of my listeners and viewers have raised $12 million to help rescue refugees? Over 12,000 have offered up their own homes to provide shelter?

Can we not drop the accusations and police our own selves, self examine our "side", and come together to be the people we have always been when we come together?

United we are remarkable people that can accomplish anything and heal the wounds of the world. Divided we are nothing but a forgotten footnote.

Dare to believe we can be better than this and join me.

California Democrats are leading the way on green spending, but what do they have to show for it?

In this clip, Glenn discusses California's crippling energy shortage and pleas to its citizens to stop cooling their homes during the current heat wave. Elected officials want Californians to buy electric vehicles and stop charging them, leaving Glenn to deduce that California lawmakers want people to stay home.

California's grid is under such strain that it requires a power plant in Oakland that burns jet fuel to continue operating through the end of next year to keep the lights on. "That sounds green as crap, doesn't it?" Glenn snarked. Can Americans continue to shrug this off as only California’s problem? Well, between the 17 states who have bound themselves to California by law, how long will it be before the rest of America begins to feel the impact in their lives?

The average price for a gas-powered vehicle is approximately $48,000, while the average price for an electric car is more than $66,000. And according to a study from the Hoover Institution, California will have to double its grid to meet the EV demand.

Watch as Glenn walks through the challenges and the proposed "solutions" out of California.

After tense negotiations between Amtrak, its workers, and the White House, Biden has announced that they've reached a "tentative deal" to avoid a national rail strike.

Reuters reported:

U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak would resume normal operations Friday as it works to quickly restore canceled trains after a freight rail labor deal was announced, averting a rail shutdown.

"We're saved!" Glenn said on Thursday's radio program. Pay no attention to what was happening just a few months ago with this deal or the fact that it is nearing the midterms. Just stand in awe of the totally coherent Joe Biden and his unquestionable cognitive ability to intervene in negotiations with the union workers and save America.

"This is political theatre at its finest," Glenn said. In this video, Glenn performed a one-man political theater show and illustrated why some might be led to believe that the whole Amtrak debacle was strategically planned — and on International Democracy Day to boot.

San Francisco Chronicle reported that catalytic converter thieves targeted police vehicles earlier this week.

According to police, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, an SFPD officer discovered that a catalytic converter had been stolen off of a police truck in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. A spokesperson said the officer later noticed multiple police vehicles had been hit by thieves.

No arrests have been made. Multiple officer injuries have been reported in connection to catalytic converter theft incidents.

As San Francisco police were targeted by catalytic converter thieves, House Rep. Nancy Pelosi was in D.C., along with President Joe Biden, and told the American people about the totally successful and not at all disastrous Inflation Reduction Act. Glenn Beck covered the spectacle on his radio program and called the gathering "the worst propaganda ever devised."
