Glenn Makes Two Predictions for Nevada

Echoing David Barton's sentiments that voters feel betrayed by the government, Glenn noted the palpable anger felt at rallies he attended in Nevada, particularly in Reno. Broadcasting from The Silver State, Glenn shared two predictions Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Prediction #1: The GOP is 100% Done in Nevada

Nevada, like the rest of the country, feels betrayed --- and angry. The citizens of The Silver State made their voices loud and clear during recent elections by winning the senate, their assembly and the governorship for Republicans. And what did the Grand Old Party do? They passed the largest tax increase in the state's history.

"This tax was so high, so huge, that the Democrats couldn't have ever done it themselves," Glenn said. "But because it came from the Republicans, they got the Republicans to join with the Democrats, exactly what happens in Washington."

Tonight, on the caucus ballot, Nevada voters will have a chance to repeal that tax.

Prediction #2: Donald Trump Will Win Big in Nevada

The citizens of Nevada are angry, and rightly so. They followed the proper procedures, they elected Republicans to represent them with conservative values, and they were let down. No wonder Trump is polling so well there.

"I would never want to vote for a politician," Glenn said. "I would just say, 'You know what, I don't care. The guy has a giant golden phallic symbol on the strip in Las Vegas. He's the first guy to add strippers into a casino. He's got his name up in lights. He's not really a nice guy. But, you know what, I can't take a politician anymore.'"

Hey Clueless GOP, Order a Domino's Pizza

Someone recently shared a story with Glenn about the CEO of Domino's Pizza turning the company around. How did he do it? By owning up to the company's problems, leveling with customers and fixing the problems. Domino's Pizza went from near failure to being the number one pizza delivery. That same CEO spoke to the GOP, warning they had the same kind of problem and recommending a solution.

"The leadership in the GOP got up and asked him, 'Well, that worked for you, but what do we do because we don't have a problem with our pizza? We don't have a problem with our delivery.' Are you out of your mind? That's delusional," Glenn said.

Common Sense Bottom Line

Politicians have completely lost touch with America. They live in a protected bubble that only benefits the political class and well-connected, unwilling to accept or listen to reason. The American people are fed up with their corruption and backdoor dealings. They no longer trust politicians who repeatedly make promises and fail to deliver.

And that's exactly why Donald Trump will likely crush it in Nevada tonight.

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: My prediction on what's going to happen tonight is it's going to be a huge win for Donald Trump. Because this is Donald Trump territory in some ways. And it's in this way: The G.O.P. is done in Nevada. Absolutely 100 percent done. And here's why: In Nevada, they did the same thing that the national G.O.P. has been doing to all of us, and that is: We have to have the senate. And they get the senate. We have to get the assembly, their house. And they get the assembly and the senate. Yeah, but we can't really do anything until we get the governor. They get the governor, the assembly, and the house, and what was the first thing they did? They passed the largest tax increase in the state's history.

Everyone felt betrayed by the G.O.P. Tonight, on the ballot at the -- at the caucus, they have a repeal going on as well to repeal this tax. This tax was so high, so huge, that the Democrats couldn't have ever done it themselves. If the Democrats would have tried to do this, it would have set the state on fire and divided everyone. And in no way the Democrats could pulled it off. But because it came from the Republicans, they got the Republicans to join with the Democrats, exactly what happens in Washington. The G.O.P. is finished.

So Donald Trump is playing into the anger. And last night, I arrived here in Reno. And we noticed something different in Reno from Vegas and Elko. And that is the people in Reno -- and it's happening in Vegas and in Elko. But it was different. It was easily diffused. In Reno last night, it was a great crowd. But I sensed a real anger. There was this anger right from the beginning that they were talking back to me as I was saying things. They were really talking back. And I could -- I could sense they really meant it. When they were saying, "We've been betrayed," they felt it. They know.

And Donald Trump -- and, quite honestly, with the way Marco Rubio is running his campaign where he won't talk about his own record, he is playing exactly the same record that Donald Trump does. Donald Trump is for Planned Parenthood. Well, Ted Cruz is trying to dismantle Planned Parenthood. What is Donald Trump doing? Donald Trump is out saying that Planned Parenthood does a lot of great things for women. Well, okay. So you're for Planned Parenthood? You're not for defunding Planned Parenthood. You're saying the same thing that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton says.

And what did he do at the debate? Liar, liar, liar, liar, lair. Wouldn't let Ted even explain.

Liar. When did I ever say that?

Well, you said it --

Liar, liar.

That's the same thing Marco Rubio is doing when you talk to him about the Gang of Eight or any of his policies where he is -- I mean, look at the people who are supporting him. It is the establishment. Why is the establishment doing it? Why is he having to deny that Mitt Romney is supporting him? Because the Mitt Romney endorsement is the kiss of death.

But look at the people -- in Nevada, the people who are endorsing him, believe it or not, and he is embracing it, the governor, the people from the assembly, and the people from senate, who were the leaders of pushing this tax on the -- on the people of Nevada. It's crazy.

So I think -- and I don't know because I haven't seen any poll numbers or anything else, but I think that Ted Cruz is going to come in second. It will probably be close again. But a runaway for Donald Trump here.

And the people that I am talking to, it is connecting with them when I say, "We never make a good decision when we're angry. Never have I said, man, I'm sorry, I flew off the handle. I was so angry at the time. And that's why I made the greatest decision of my life. Instead, every apology starts with, I'm really sorry. I was angry. You never make a good decision when you're angry."

And what we're looking for is a strongman. Exactly -- without naming him because I didn't know who it would be. This is what I warned about when I was on Fox, when I said -- and I did the show on the pendulum. Somebody on the right will grab the pendulum. Some strongman because it will be top down, bottom up, inside out, and you'll be so frustrated that you will cry out for a strongman.

Donald Trump said yesterday that he is going to put Hillary Clinton -- he'll prosecute Hillary Clinton and put her in jail. I can guarantee you, the man who wanted Hillary Clinton at his wedding so much that he paid her to believe is not going to put Hillary Clinton in jail. Liar. That's just a fact. He will not do it.

But people are so -- when I say on the campaign trail, Bernie Sanders is connecting with the American people because he is talking about fairness. He wants fairness. Well, what does fairness mean? To a lot of people who aren't thinking in the Marxist sort of way, fairness means, I want an equal chance. I want an equal shot. Just because a guy owns a casino, he has all these connections, he has all this money, and he can pay people to show up at his wedding, he shouldn't have a better shot at things than you do. If I have a better idea, if I have a better work ethic, I should be able to start my own casino. He shouldn't be able to block me because of his money. That's what fairness means in America.

But it also means something else. Equal justice under the law. And that's what we have lost. You know and I know, if we did what Lois Lerner did at the IRS, we'd be in jail. Lois Lerner got her pension. She wasn't even fired. If you and I did what Hillary Clinton did, we would be in jail. And if you were in military, you might be facing execution. And that's a fact. But because Hillary Clinton did it, because her husband was the president of the United States, she has nothing to worry about.

If you are voting for Bernie Sanders, your guy most likely doesn't have a chance. Why is that? Because there's no such thing as equal justice. Bernie Sanders is probably going to lose, even though he's beating her or tying her everywhere. And she's not worried about it at all because she has all the superdelegates. That's not equal justice. That's not fair. That's not America. And that's what people are upset about on both sides of the aisle.

So the G.O.P. -- and they absolutely don't know it. I'm traveling with a few congressmen. And these are the good guys that you can actually trust in Congress. And they're saying to me, "Oh, the G.O.P. -- the Mitt -- they really think that they can get somebody like Marco Rubio that will make deals with them, as evidenced by the Gang of Eight, and make deals with them and continue this game down the road. They have no idea. They honestly don't see the trouble that is coming down the road. They think they're right.

I was told a story about how the guy who owned Domino's Pizza -- now, remember, Domino's Pizza went through a really hard time a few years back. And everybody -- their test scores -- you know, their ratings from their customers were bottom of the line. People didn't trust that the food would come on time. They thought the food tasted like cardboard. They just didn't like the product. They didn't like the service, and they didn't like the delivery. And Domino's Pizza was almost out of business. It was done.

So the new CEO comes in, and he conducts this survey. And he finds out how much trouble they're in. So he goes and he starts an ad that says, look, you thought our pizza tasted like cardboard. You didn't like our service. You didn't trust our delivery. We've screwed our company up. But that's why we've changed our menu. We've changed our policies. And we want to know when we screw it up because we're fixing it now. Try us again. Fresh start. Domino's Pizza.

Well, Domino's Pizza became the number one pizza. And the number one rated, not only in taste for fast pizza delivery, but also rated number one in customer service and delivery. People gave them another chance because that's what Americans do because they believe in fairness.

So he came out and spoke to the G.O.P. And he sat there and spoke to them and he said, "You guys have a problem, and I highly recommend that you do and take the course that Domino's Pizza just came and did." The leadership in the G.O.P. got up and asked him -- this was an honest question, "Well, that worked for you, but what do we do because we don't have a problem with our pizza? We don't have a problem with our delivery."

Are you out of your mind? Do you really think -- and the guys who were telling me this last night said they were completely embarrassed. Here's a guy who comes -- who doesn't need to come and spend his time talking to the G.O.P. And he's just offering his advice. And they look at him and say, "We don't have a problem." That's delusional. Delusional.

And because of that, they're putting their money and their -- and they're betting on Marco Rubio because he will make deals with them. It's insane. And it leads to revolution. Because Americans won't take another four years or another eight years of this. We're when you're out on the campaign trail, which, by the way, we should talk about. It is the worst. I mean, waking

up in a strange city. And waking up in a strange hotel every single day is just the worse. I don't know how these guys do it. The grind on you is absolutely phenomenal. And there's always somebody there trying to trip you up. There's always the press watching every single word you make.

After doing this for 12 hours a day and you're in five different cities a day and you're tired from doing for seven days a week -- and these guys have been doing it for months, the campaign hasn't even really started. I don't know how they do it. I really don't know how to do it. But that is making them better. Each of them are getting better. And they're learning something.

So what is it they're learning? Ted Cruz is learning how to deal with the press, and Ted Cruz is learning how to deal with his own staff. We'll go into what he did yesterday and make sure that he's holding their feet to the fire. And he's getting smarter. Much, much smarter. Donald Trump, for instance, is learning that just shouting liar -- and so is Marco Rubio -- just shouting liar and not actually having to answer any question is working for them.

Donald Trump, in particular, is learning the bigger the bully, the better I -- the better I do because people are angry. And there is -- you're right to be angry. You're right to feel betrayed. I feel betrayed. If I lived in Nevada, oh, my gosh, I would never -- and this is why Donald Trump is doing well. I would never want to vote for a politician. I would just say, "You know what, I don't care. The guy has a giant golden phallic HEP symbol on the strip in Las Vegas. He's the first guy to add strippers into a casino. He's got his name up in lights. He's not really a nice guy. But, you know what, I can't take a politician anymore. I can't take a politician anymore."

And they're right to feel that way. They're right to feel that way.

10 lessons on prepping from around the world

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

Prepping is a human condition practiced across the globe for thousands of years. Customs are influenced by geography, culture, politics, and threat. Here are ten applicable observations on preparedness from around the world.

1. Argentina: Get hard.

Fernando “Ferfal” Aguirre’s The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse is required reading for preppers, and it’s chock-full of real-life lessons from his experiences during Argentina's 2001 economic crisis. But the very first thing he starts with is preparing your body and your mind so you’re not a soft target. Stop being soft. Do difficult things to develop your body and your mind. Go camping. Hit the gym. Get in shape! It’ll do wonders for your health, survivability, and confidence.

Take home point: here’sa simple weightlifting plan that most able-bodied adults can perform. Learn to stand up straight and act confident. Get your dental and health problems fixed while you can—don’t put it off for after stuff hits the fan.

2. Netherlands: Involve the kids!

The motto of the Boy Scouts of America is “Be Prepared” and the organization has taught boys wilderness and practical skills for over 100 years. The Dutch have their own version of inculcating confidence in their children via a cultural tradition known as Dutch Dropping. Kids, starting around the age of 11-12, are dropped off in the forest alone or in small groups at night with minimal gear and instructed to find their way home or to the campsite with ZERO adult assistance. Some nights are tough and miserable, but overall, the practice instills independence, decision-making skills, and is widely practiced.

Take home point: instill grit and self-confidence in your children early.

3. Israel: Always be prepared.

Entire books could be dedicated to the 10/7 attack, but the key takeaway is this: no one saw it coming. The folks attending the Supernova music festival expected a fun party, and what they got instead was hell. Israel is a bit of a special case, but the reality is you never know when a mass shooter or other disaster will strike. Never get too intoxicated, never let your guard down too much, because you never know when your life will change forever.

Take home point: you don’t have to live on hyper-alert (that is grossly unhealthy) but keep your wits about you and have a plan if things go south.

4.Taiwan: Grassroots communities are the best.

Post-COVID and especially after the start of the Russia-Ukraine War, prepping has exploded in Taiwan. Fearing an imminent blockade and invasion, the Taiwanese have recognized their precarious position. Prepper groups have sprung up across the island and vary in their focus from all-hazards to gear geeks to weaponized resistance forces training with airsoft guns. Skills taught are varied; examples include building an emergency kit, learning first aid, and basic survival proficiencies.

However, some groups go much further and provide instruction on military simulations. Participants run the political gamut and are highly varied in their professions, reflecting a massive cross-section of the island. One common theme that appears across these groups is the adage that disaster can happen at any moment and can consist of assorted hazards. The April 2024 severe earthquake is proof positive of this understanding.

Take home point: community resilience is vital!

5. Bosnia: Get your ham radio license.

During the Bosnian War of the early 1990s, ham radio operators like Himzo Devedzija helped separated families stay in touch via radio. These days, the ubiquity of the internet and smartphones has made ham radio seem obsolete, but radio has a key advantage over more modern and user-friendly tech: it requires practically no infrastructure. Hook a radio up to a battery connected to a solar panel, throw a wire over a tree, and you’re in business. Master digital modes like Winlink and you can even send email over the air. The downside is the equipment is expensive, and you need to take tests with the FCC to obtain the necessary licenses. Your best bet is to contact yournearest ham radio club, who can help prepare you for the tests and recommend the best equipment for your area. But you can do a lot of interesting things even without a license, like listen to worldwide HF transmissions and learn how to track down radio transmitters through foxhunting.

Take home point: pick up a hobby, even if it’s not ham and make it FUN!

6. Russia: Plant a garden.

While the leadership of Russia is commonly maligned, the Russian people are damn tough. They’ve survived Genghis Khan, famines, a communist revolution, and total government collapse. One secret to Russian resiliency? Dacha gardens, which the Russian people have maintained for over 1,000 years. These small backyard gardens account for 3% of Russia’s land but provide over 50% of the country’s food, including 92% of potatoes, 77% of vegetables, 87% of fruit, 59% of meat, and 49% of milk. You don’t have to grow everything overnight, but simply starting with a single raised bed of lettuce and maybe a handful of chickens will give you invaluable real-world experience you can scale when the chips are down.

Take home point: build your resilience in bite-sized (pun intended) chunks.

7. Cyprus: Diversification saves.

During the 2013 financial crisis in Cyprus, Germany agreed to bail out the island, but with some characteristic German austerity: a tax of 6.75 percent from insured deposits up to €100,000 and a 9.9 percent from uninsured amounts over €100,000. People panicked, and Cyprus had to shut down banks for two weeks to avoid a run. Ultimately, depositors lost nearlyhalf of their savings. The crisis in Cyprussparked Bitcoin’s meteoric rise from obscure nerd money to a financial titan as the savvy rich realized that they couldn’t trust the banks. Of course, there are alternative places to store wealth other than a bank, but as for your liquid capital, it pays to diversify. Keep some in cash, Bitcoin, and precious metals.

Take home point: your mother was right, don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

8.Japan: Government CAN be helpful.

KAZUHIRO NOGI / Contributor | Getty Images

Japan overall, and Tokyo specifically, take disaster preparedness quite seriously. The 2024 New Years Day earthquake hammered that point home, yet again. At the national level, the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Force is habitually prepared to respond to calamity; everything from earthquakes to typhoons to tsunamis.

As a country, September 1st is nationally designated as Disaster Prevention Day, commemorating the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake which claimed 140,000 lives. School children, businesses, theme parks, and members of the national government participate annually. At the municipal level, Tokyo publishes a very thorough and thoughtful pamphlet on preparedness for its residents (English link here:https://www.metro.tokyo.lg.jp/english/guide/bosai/index.html). Tokyo also boasts the massive Rinkai Disaster Prevention Park, near downtown, that is used both as a tourist attraction and an actual disaster response site.

Take home point: remembrance, codified in national action and tribute, contributes to a culture of preparedness.

9. Finland, Switzerland, Israel: Bunkers aren't mainstream, but the concept is widespread.

You would really have to be a tinfoil hat wearing loon to invest in a bunker, right? Wrong. Switzerland mandates either a personal bunker or a tax for a space in a public bunker. In 2023, Finland ascertained it had over 50,000 bunkers, enough to shelter nearly 90% of its population. For these countries, the shelters are due to nuclear fears. Israeli law stipulates residential homes should possess a Merkhav Mugan (translation: protected space) to protect from conventional rocket and mortar attacks. Some countries and some areas are at higher risk for conventional or nuclear attack. It is folly to ignore this.

Take home point: the need for a nuclear bunker at home should not be a top prepping priority, but many areas of the US could greatly benefit from a reinforced room (e.g. panic room, tornado, or hurricane shelter) to mitigate threats.

10. United Kingdom, Canada, Australia: International preparedness is growing.

Although the tide is turning (slowly), one negative export from America on prepping, especially to the Western World, is that prepping is fringe and even anti-social, if not downright dangerous. Fortunately, things are changing for the better. The United Kingdom is, at least anecdotally, seeing an uptick in interest. The reality series Alone Australia, a spin-off of the American show where survivalists test their wits in nature, is a hit. A December 2023 survey of Canadians found 7% considered themselves preppers with British Columbia reporting the highest levels. Given wildfires, home prices, and general angst regarding a host of potential crises, it’s not hard to see why many are changing their views regarding preparedness.

Take home point: prepping has been a human staple for millennia; the world is rediscovering this and taking action.

5 Christian denominations that have EMBRACED LGBTQ+

New York Daily News Archive / Contributor | Getty Images

The United Methodist Church (UMC) just lost one million members overnight, and they're on their way to losing another 1.5 million in the coming weeks.

Early this May, the UMC, which has been succumbing to the pressures of the progressive mob for years, made one of its biggest concessions to date. At the UMC's general conference meeting in Charlotte, they voted to allow LGBTQ-practicing clergy and reversed their ban on same-sex marriage. For the leaders of the United Methodist Church of Ivory Coast (EMCUI), this was the straw that broke the camel's back, and they voted to withdraw from the United Methodist Church. This was a massive blow to the Church, which has been losing U.S. congregations over the last few years.

The EMCUI's decision to stand up against pressures from the progressive wing of the Church and defend its core values is being reflected in other churches within the UMC. The 1.5 million-member-strong Korean Methodist Church may soon be on its way out of the UMC before long. The controversy stemming from the general conference meeting provoked the following response from the conservative faction within the Korean Methodist Church: "Homosexuality cannot be accepted until the Lord returns. This is not an emotional issue but a matter of unchangeable truth. Homosexuality is clearly a sin."

But the UMC is not alone. There has been a continuing trend of denominations across America changing their stance on LGBTQ matters and condoning gay clergy and gay marriages.

Here are FIVE examples of Christian denominations that have embraced the pride movement:

United Methodist Church (UMC)

The chargeable offenses for clergy being found to be "self-avowed practicing homosexual" or for presiding at a same-sex marriage or union ceremony are deleted.

Rev. Burton Edwards

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A)

The [Presbyterian Church U.S.A] apologizes for the church’s previous unwelcoming stance on LGBTQ parishioners, celebrates LGBTQ church pioneers, and states the church will welcome, lift up, and fight for the human rights of all people created in the eyes of God.

Overture 11-13: "On Celebrating the Gifts of People of Diverse Sexual Orientations and Gender Identities in the Life of the Church"

The Episcopal Church

Ordination and the offices of bishop, priest, and deacon are open to all without discrimination. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.

The Episcopal Church's statement on "LGBTQ+ in the Church"

United Church of Christ (UCC)

LGBTQIA+ siblings know intimately the nature of being deemed an outcast. The clarion call for LGBTQIA+ advocacy is reverberating from state capitol rotundas, family dinner tables, city streets, and church pews.

The UCC's Love is Louder Campaign

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)

We give thanks for the gifts, wisdom, leadership and faith of our LGBTQIA+ neighbors and siblings in Christ. We ask the Spirit to embolden us in advocating for social, institutional and legislative change that reflects justice, total inclusion and God’s boundless love for humanity in all its diversity.

Trump's conviction: Press on for the sake of the republic

The Washington Post / Contributor | Getty Images

Editor's note: This article was originally published on TheBlaze.com.

In today's world, everyone seems to get a trophy, which makes the trophy absolutely worthless. Unless it’s fought for, unless it’s earned and struggled for, the trophy doesn’t belong to you. The same goes for freedom. I’ve never earned the freedom we enjoy in America. I fear I spent too much of my life squandering it. And for what? Ease? Money? Just to go along to get along? A trophy that everybody gets but was never earned?

We must not accept defeat. If we do, we are not worthy of the freedom that is worth fighting for.

I do not accept, nor do I want that trophy. I want one that means something, and that means standing up for something.

Defeat is not an outcome. Defeat is a choice.

We were given an opportunity on Thursday to stand for something: our republic. The weaponization of our government to snuff out Donald Trump’s campaign represents a greater attack against the foundational freedoms that forged our republic: the right to a fair and impartial trial, the right to free and fair elections, the right to defend yourselves against your accusers. Will you stand for it?

Now is the time to decide, and our decision may very well determine whether our republic is heading toward victory or defeat.

I will never say we are finished. I will never utter the words, “We have lost!” Because defeat is not an outcome. Defeat is a choice. It is the choice of the person who is pushed down and refuses to get back up. It is the choice of the person who backs down when pitted against seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The posture of defeat is the one who backs down when things get hard. Will you take that posture? Or will you stand for freedom and rise to the occasion that our republic demands?

It always sucks before you get to the summit. The question is: As you're driving your wagon train over the Rocky Mountains, do you press on? Do you actually have an unwavering belief in our republic? Do you really even know the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, or the Constitution? Do you know why we fight? Because if you don't know, you will lose.

Will enough of us call upon that unyielding spirit that has always been inside us? Will you stand for those values that we’ve been told our whole lives are self-evident? Apparently, they are not self-evident any more, according to our ruling elites.

Our country forged the greatest mission statement the world has ever witnessed, that all people are "endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," where justice and freedom can be had by all.

That is the summit of the mountain we now face, and it is a summit worth pressing forward to reach. We are still on the side of the mountain. We have a long way to go, and last Thursday, they tried to knock us back down. We must ask ourselves today: Do we just go back down? Is this as far as we go? Or do we just say, "Press on, America."

We must press on. We must not accept defeat. If we do, we are not worthy of the freedom that is worth fighting for.

FOUR takeaways from Fauci's hearing

ALLISON BAILEY / Contributor | Getty Images

Did Dr. Anthony Fauci answer for the mismanagement of the Covid pandemic?

On Monday, Fauci sat before the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability to answer lingering questions about how the pandemic was handled. Many of us, Glenn included, have serious concerns, such as:

  • Why did he lie about gain-of-function research?
  • Why did he try to cover up all the chatter among scientists that the virus DID come from a lab?
  • Did he know the U.S. government cut a deal with Moderna on vaccines before the pandemic?

While some of these questions were partially answered, Fauci's lack of credibility and Congress's lack of direct questioning left much to be desired. The American people deserve the truth, but it's being kept from us.

That’s why BlazeTV teamed up with Free the People to release The Coverup, a docuseries available NOW for BlazeTV subscribers. You can watch the series now and get $30 off your BlazeTV annual subscription by using the code FAUCILIED.

Here are the top FIVE takeaways from Fauci's hearing:

Social distancing was BUNK

Mario Tama / Staff | Getty Images

After a closed-door hearing in January where Fauci admitted that the 6-foot social distancing rule imposed on all Americans allegedly for our safety "wasn’t based on data," Fauci tried to distance himself from the controversial edict. Fauci shifted the blame to the CDC, claiming that he had little to nothing to do with the order.

Fauci is "open" to Covid origin possibilities

HECTOR RETAMAL / Contributor | Getty Images

For YEARS we were told COVID-19 originated from bats in China, and anyone who dared to offer any other suggestions—like the theory that COVID-19 leaked from the massive virology lab that worked on Coronaviruses and happened to be in the same city the pandemic originated in—was ridiculed as a conspiracy theorist. Now that the lab leak theory has been all but confirmed, Fauci is singing a different tune. On Monday, Fauci claimed he has always kept an "open mind" about the origin of the virus.

Deleted emails and FOIA evasions

BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI / Contributor | Getty Images

A series of emails released by the House Oversight Committee indicate that some NIH officials, including Fauci, were attempting to avoid public record laws by deleting emails and sending information to personal email addresses. In one such released email sent to Fauci from Dr. David Morens suggested they use personal emails so “there is no worry about FOIAs” [Freedom of Information Act].

MTG outburst

ALLISON BAILEY / Contributor | Getty Images

The infamous Georgia congresswoman was arguably the star of the hearing, taking the opportunity to make her criticisms of Fauci known. Rep. Greene called for Fauci's medical license to be revoked and to throw him in jail. Throughout her time on the microphone, Greene refused to refer to Fauci as "doctor," instead calling him "Mr. Fauci."
