CNN Defuses Clinton's Response After Weekend Terror Attacks

In the wake of this weekend's terror attacks, both major presidential candidates made comments. Naturally, the MSM couldn't wait to compare their responses.

Here's what the candidates said:

Clinton: "I have been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota. Obviously we need to do everything we can to support our first responders, also to pray for the victims. We have to let this investigation unfold. We have been in touch with various officials, including the mayor's office in New York, to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. And I will have more to say about it when we have some facts."

Trump: "Just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what's going on."

While both candidates used a variation of the word "bomb," Trump was lambasted while Hillary was praised for showing reserve. CNN reported that "Trump immediately said a bomb went off while Clinton called for support of first responders and letting the investigation unfold.

CNN went the extra mile by removing from audio the first sentence in Hillary's statement that used the word "bombings."

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

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

You know, I will tell you that CNN played a really interesting game over the weekend. Donald Trump came out right away and said it was a bombing. You know, the bombing in New York, instead of an explosion.

And the press immediately said, "Oh, what do you mean bombing? Bombing, you can't say bombing."

PAT: Controversy. Uh-huh.

GLENN: Yeah. I know. Stupid controversy. But what happened was Hillary Clinton was asked about Donald Trump's comments. How do you have this? You have the CNN or do you have the raw?

PAT: I have the raw.

GLENN: Okay. So I want you to hear this in its entirety. This is the raw comments Hillary Clinton made on her plane at about a quarter to midnight on Saturday.

HILLARY: I've been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota.

Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders. Also, to pray for the victims. We have to let this investigation unfold. We've been in touch with various officials, including the mayor's office in New York to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. And I'll have more to say about it when we actually know the facts.

VOICE: Secretary Clinton, do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump immediately upon taking the statement tonight called the explosion in New York a "bomb"?

GLENN: Okay. Stop. First question: Do you have any comment that Donald Trump called this a "bomb"?

STU: It's unbelievable.

PAT: By the way, 30 seconds after she called it "bombings."

STU: Bombings.

PAT: She did use the -ing though -- -ings. So...

GLENN: Yes. Okay. So you have that. Now, let me show you what CNN cut out.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Stop it when -- go ahead.

PAT: Okay.

HILLARY: I've been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota.

GLENN: Stop. That's what they edited out.

(laughter)

GLENN: But there's -- what?

PAT: So they took out the fact that she called them "bombings."

GLENN: They took out the fact that she called them "bombings."

PAT: And then she can bash Trump for calling them "bombings."

GLENN: Right.

JEFFY: Huh.

STU: Now, how is that the fascinating part of this story?

GLENN: Well, the other fascinating part of the story is that she also said we have to support our first responders, you know, the woman who is standing with Black Lives Matter.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Meeting with the heads of Black Lives Matter. That's different than saying, "Hey -- because I know what's coming my way -- hey, let's listen to the people, not the leaders. We know what the leaders want. We disagree with the leaders. But the people who might be caught up in it, let's listen to them."

She's meeting with the leaders of Black Lives Matter. We know what they want. Death to the police.

PAT: The leaders -- and Marxism.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

PAT: Communism. Their whole manifesto is about that.

GLENN: Yes.

JEFFY: Yes.

STU: Yes. I mean, it is straight-out communist.

GLENN: So what is your interesting part of this?

STU: Well, I mean, first of all, it's a terrorist -- ongoing terrorist event. And what does the news do but take it -- I mean, we just addressed this. It's not the most important thing here, the election results. But, again, to try to capture Donald Trump in some misstatement, they'd rather focus on that than focus on the actual attack.

GLENN: They have to. They have to.

STU: No, they don't. I promise they don't.

GLENN: No, no. No, no. And I don't mean it that way. I mean, they are playing for a team. So they have to.

STU: Yeah, I guess.

GLENN: You know, if we're -- by the way, anybody who thinks we're for Clinton, we wouldn't be bringing this up if we were playing for a team. We will do the same thing to Donald Trump that we'll do to her. When they're wrong, we'll point it out.

STU: What a crazy new approach to radio.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Wow, we're inventing a whole new format here.

GLENN: I know. They have to do this because they're playing for a team, and terror is going to work to Donald Trump's strange.

STU: You're right. So as a team member, they go and try to say, "Well, this is an example of Donald Trump being erratic. This is him acting without information. What a crazy person this guy is." Instead of talking about the fact that -- I mean, this is -- you know, terrorism in and of itself shouldn't help one or the other candidates. It's about how they react to it. And, you know, the idea that one of the main divisions in this election has been, "Should we let more people into the country from terrorism-ridden areas, like, I don't know, Afghanistan?" And Trump's position the entire time -- well, the entire time, Trump's position has covered people who would be born in areas such as Afghanistan. We all know it's morphed a few times. But the entire time, it would restrict immigration from those areas.

So I mean it's a pretty clear example of something that should work in Trump's favor. And you see the way the media is handling it. It's ridiculous.

GLENN: Oh, it's going to help Trump, the way the media is handling it. Because look, everybody knows -- everybody knows -- left and right, everybody knows, not all Muslims are terrorist. But almost all Muslims are terrorist. Currently, the way -- what we're fighting right now. That doesn't mean that there's not a terrorist from time to time at an abortion clinic that has been a Christian. Although, give me the number of those, Stu.

STU: Off the top of my head, I don't remember. But I think --

PAT: I think the number this year is zero.

STU: This year, it's zero.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Yeah. But since Roe vs. Wade, it's like six.

PAT: Yeah, literally.

GLENN: Yeah. So -- so occasionally, there are others that are terrorist. But it is wildly rare in comparison to what we're dealing with, coming from the Muslim community. And everybody knows that. Not all Muslims are terrorists. But almost all terrorists are Muslim currently. And to, A -- for the media to continue to deny that things are linked -- ISIS came out with the mall and immediately claimed responsibility for that. This is a soldier for ISIS.

We won't claim that it's even terror-related. Well, they're claiming it. And every time this happens -- and this is why this hurts Hillary Clinton. If they're trying to help, they're hurting her.

You know, fine with me. Do what you want. But the American people are not with the press. The American people both left and right know, "The country is in trouble because we are denying reality."

STU: Right. Because what did de Blasio call it? An intentional incident. Not terrorism, but an intentional incident, which is really a scary way to --

PAT: An intentional incident.

STU: Yes. It was intentional. It was an incident. I will give him both of those things.

GLENN: And I contend that nobody on the left -- very few on the left, except the political players and the media, actually say those kinds of things, believe those kinds of things. They know how bad ISIS is. They know we have terrorists in our own country. They know that not all mosques are bad, but there are bad mosques. Not all Muslims are bad, but there are bad Muslims. They know these things. And to continually deny them is what takes common sense people and pushes them over to somebody who will say, "Ban all Muslims."

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Well, no. No, that's not a good idea either. But if you have to choose between the two, most people will start to go, "You know what -- because they're afraid. And there's nobody that knows better than progressives what fear does.

STU: If there's a book written about that, that would be interesting.

GLENN: Oh, man. One that would show the lies that are based in fear.

STU: Right. Well, focusing on the people who make the lies, like, you know, the Liars.

PAT: Too bad there's nothing like that. Nobody would ever --

GLENN: No, wait. Guys, I wrote one. It's called Liars.

STU: Oh, really?

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Wow.

PAT: What a happy coincidence.

JEFFY: What, like 100 years ago?

GLENN: It is. It's amazing. It's almost like that was thought out in advance.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
