Hacked Email Shows What Dems Really Think About Black Lives Matter

The latest emails released by WikiLeaks include some from the personal computer of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Reportedly, a hack from Guccifer 2.0 uncovered damaging revelations about the Democratic Party and what its operatives really think about Black Lives Matter behind closed doors.

"This was hacked into and taken off of the computer of Nancy Pelosi. This is off of her personal computer. Think of what they have," Glenn said Thursday on his radio program.

RELATED: Leaked 2015 Memo Told Dems: ‘Don’t Offer Support’ For Black Lives Matter Policy Positions

The subject of the memo, addressed to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), was about Black Lives Matter and noted for internal use only. At the very top of the confidential memo was a warning in bold lettering: This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building. Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone.

Glenn read the contents of the memo on air:

Presidential candidates have struggled to respond to the tactics of Black Lives Matter movement. While there has been little engagement with House candidates, candidates and campaign staff should be prepared. This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building. Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings over the phone.

The memo goes on to describe Black Lives Matter as a radical movement which seeks to end anti-black racism.

Tactics: Democrats are told that invites to BLM attendees should be limited. The aim you should ask for personal or small group meetings. Do not offer any support for concrete policy positions.

Tactics: Meet with local activists. If BLM -- if approached by a BLM activist, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists. Invite BLM attendees should be limited. Aim for personal small group. Listen to their concerns. Do not offer any concrete policy positions.

The message: Do not say, "All lives matter," nor mention black-on-black crime. These are all viewed as red herring attacks. This response will garner additional media scrutiny and only anger the BLM activists. This is the worst response you can give.

Democrats are instructed to use the following talking point: A history of systematic racism continues to affront the daily lives of African-Americans.

"So Democrats are saying in internal memos that these guys are radical, not to really give them anything. You can meet with them and you can say these things, but they're radical, distance yourself from them and offer no solutions," Glenn said.

Does that sound like what Democrats, the party of oppressed black people, should be saying about a group that claims to be working for equal justice for black people? Shouldn't Democrats and Black Lives Matter be on the same page and have the same goals?

The memo made one thing very clear.

"You don't care. You speak the language that you need to speak, but you don't do anything about it," Glenn said. "Anybody with any sense knows how the Democrats actually feel about black people."

If Democrats cared about black people and not black votes, they would have put policies in place to solve problems facing the inner cities, which have been under Democratic rule for decades. Unemployment during The Great Depression was about 25 percent. Today, 85 percent of African-Americans under the age of 24 are unemployed, and its 45 to 85 percent for the entire black community.

"The artery in the black community is hemorrhaging," Glenn said. "If you really cared, wouldn't you make that the centerpiece of what you're doing?"

Clearly, Democrats either don't care or they're very foolish.

"Well, there's no punishment. There's no consequence," Co-host Stu Burguiere added.

Glenn agreed.

"When you have a group of people that vote 95 percent one way --- and Burgess Owens laid this out the other day --- what good does it do for a Democrat to come up with a real solution to a problem, when their lack of solution results in them getting 95 percent of the vote? They are getting rewarded over and over and over again for what they've done so far. And so there's no reason to change for them," Stu said.

Arguably, on the other side of the aisle, one could understand why Republicans don't reach out more to the black community.

"Again, we're talking Washington speak, why bother going to these communities, trying to reach out, when every time they do, what they get is 5 percent of the vote, even though they're providing solutions that have worked across the country in every other city," Stu said.

But giving up is not the answer.

"This is why we've missed the golden opportunity here," Glenn said. "Because the community is on such fire right now, that if you actually do the right thing -- not the political thing, you actually do the right thing -- you can make inground now," Glenn said.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.

The Hong Kong protesters flocking to the streets in opposition to the Chinese government have a new symbol to display their defiance: the Stars and Stripes. Upset over the looming threat to their freedom, the American flag symbolizes everything they cherish and are fighting to preserve.

But it seems our president isn't returning the love.

Trump recently doubled down on the United States' indifference to the conflict, after initially commenting that whatever happens is between Hong Kong and China alone. But he's wrong — what happens is crucial in spreading the liberal values that America wants to accompany us on the world stage. After all, "America First" doesn't mean merely focusing on our own domestic problems. It means supporting liberal democracy everywhere.

The protests have been raging on the streets since April, when the government of Hong Kong proposed an extradition bill that would have allowed them to send accused criminals to be tried in mainland China. Of course, when dealing with a communist regime, that's a terrifying prospect — and one that threatens the judicial independence of the city. Thankfully, the protesters succeeded in getting Hong Kong's leaders to suspend the bill from consideration. But everyone knew that the bill was a blatant attempt by the Chinese government to encroach on Hong Kong's autonomy. And now Hong Kong's people are demanding full-on democratic reforms to halt any similar moves in the future.

After a generation under the "one country, two systems" policy, the people of Hong Kong are accustomed to much greater political and economic freedom relative to the rest of China. For the protesters, it's about more than a single bill. Resisting Xi Jinping and the Communist Party means the survival of a liberal democracy within distance of China's totalitarian grasp — a goal that should be shared by the United States. Instead, President Trump has retreated to his administration's flawed "America First" mindset.

This is an ideal opportunity for the United States to assert our strength by supporting democratic values abroad. In his inaugural address, Trump said he wanted "friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world" while "understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their interests first." But at what point is respecting sovereignty enabling dictatorships? American interests are shaped by the principles of our founding: political freedom, free markets, and human rights. Conversely, the interests of China's Communist Party are the exact opposite. When these values come into conflict, as they have in Hong Kong, it's our responsibility to take a stand for freedom — even if those who need it aren't within our country's borders.

Of course, that's not a call for military action. Putting pressure on Hong Kong is a matter of rhetoric and positioning — vital tenets of effective diplomacy. When it comes to heavy-handed world powers, it's an approach that can really work. When the Solidarity movement began organizing against communism in Poland, President Reagan openly condemned the Soviet military's imposition of martial law. His administration's support for the pro-democracy movement helped the Polish people gain liberal reforms from the Soviet regime. Similarly, President Trump doesn't need to be overly cautious about retribution from Xi Jinping and the Chinese government. Open, strong support for democracy in Hong Kong not only advances America's governing principles, but also weakens China's brand of authoritarianism.

After creating a commission to study the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote last month that the principles of our Constitution are central "not only to Americans," but to the rest of the world. He was right — putting "America First" means being the first advocate for freedom across the globe. Nothing shows the strength of our country more than when, in crucial moments of their own history, other nations find inspiration in our flag.

Let's join the people of Hong Kong in their defiance of tyranny.
