Feminists to CDC on Drinking While Pregnant: Screw You

If there's one thing that'll rile a feminist, it's bossing around her uterus, especially if there's a baby in it. That is sacred territory (for the feminist, not the baby).

First of all, don't tell her what she can or can't have in her womb. If she wants to discard her fetal tissue, that's her business and hers alone. Secondly, if by chance her fetal tissue does turn into an actual baby, don't even think about telling her to avoid alcohol --- especially if you're the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

"Women [are] taking a strong feminist stand by saying "F you" to the CDC about drinking while pregnant," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Wednesday on radio.

The CDC recently recommended that women who could become pregnant should stop drinking to avoid fetal alcohol syndrome. Feminists were having none of it.

"We want the right to be able to get sloshed when we've got a kid inside," Stu joked.

What a great reason to launch a movement.

PAT: International Women's Day I guess is kind of like the Day Without An Immigrant. They're trying to give us a day without a woman to see how much we should appreciate -- I already appreciate women. I love women.

JEFFY: Me too.

PAT: I have one in my house, who is -- who I'm pretty fond of.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: In fact, there's four. Two of them are out on their own and out in their own houses now. I mean, the Day Without Immigrants should be renamed the Day Without Illegal Immigrants. Because that's a great day. We should do that every day. Let's -- let's have every day be the Day Without Illegal Immigrants, and then everything would be as it should be. The Day Without Immigrants, nobody wants that. I mean, I don't know what the point of -- almost everyone I know, literally everyone I know is for legal immigration. So they leave off the illegal part, but that's what it's really about with the Day Without An Immigrant thing.

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: And actually the Day Without An Immigrant thing just means less traffic in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

STU: I will say, I did not notice any reduction in traffic today.

PAT: You didn't? Oh, today. Yeah, no, today.

STU: Today. So I don't know if there's no women that work in Texas. Or maybe people in Texas think this is really dumb.

PAT: I hope so. I hope so.

STU: I guess is the second one. But, yeah, I was -- I did not notice. In fact, it seemed like there was more traffic than usual today. Maybe guys were like, you know what, I'm going to go in just because I don't think any of those women will be there. I mean, that's what sexist men are like, right?

PAT: Yes, yes.

STU: That's what I heard. No, it's sort of a really silly idea. Again -- there are people, a lot of them, looking to ban illegal immigration. I know of no one who is looking to ban women. I think there's a zero -- there's a 0 percent level for banning women in America.

PAT: Well, maybe not ban women, Stu. But there's certainly a war on them.

STU: Is there?

PAT: Yeah. And I guess today would be a cease-fire because they would be around to shoot at today. The perception is they make, what, 78 cents or 87 cents on the dollar for every man or whatever. And I don't know how many times that has to be debunked. Even the Washington Post has debunked that nonsense every year since 2012, when this first started to become such a big issue again. And Obama used the War on Women to try to bash Mitt Romney over the head with it.

And so, you know, when you compare apples to apples, instead of apples to oranges, men and women make about the same. And in some fields, women make more than men. But I think that's what this is about, the perception that they don't make as much, that they don't have the equal rights, all of those things.

STU: Is it? I kind of get the sense that it's just Trump-related. I get the sense that because Donald Trump has said a couple of offensive things about women and they're just taking -- despite the fact that, again, he's offered a 600 billion-dollar maternity leave.

PAT: Right. Right.

STU: By the way, something Barack Obama did not push hard. He did talk about it a couple of times. He's doing a lot of things in that realm as well. His daughter is obviously big on women's rights and likes these larger programs. So it seems as if at some point, some of that stuff could be reality, if women didn't -- I mean, constantly -- seemingly try to antagonize Donald Trump. You know, again, I understand that we are just on teams now.

JEFFY: Yeah.

STU: I think that's just where this comes from. They don't care what policies he's promoting. They just say, well, he's evil. The new health care plan does look like it would defund Planned Parenthood if passed as constructed at this point.

PAT: You mean a private agency might have to raise their own funds and not take mine and your money? What?

STU: Yeah. I know. It's crazy. It's crazy. That could be part of it I guess.

PAT: Yeah, it probably is.

STU: They're not going to like everything the guy does. But I think it's more about his personality more than anything else.

The women's pay thing -- remember, the Democrats had the House, the presidency, and a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and did nothing about this issue.

PAT: Super majority.

STU: They did a giant zilch. What did they pass? The Lilly Ledbetter Act or something. Remember that thing? And they bragged about that for years.

PAT: We passed the Lilly Ledbetter Act. Oh, I don't know what that is, but nice job. That's really good.

STU: Yeah. Is that a Pearl Jam song?

PAT: Yes. Yes.

STU: Okay. So I get that -- that they're going to -- you know, I think the standard response to any Republican in the way that we have our politics right now is just to protest anything that they do.

PAT: Lilly Ledbetter was passed.

Remember that song? That was really good.

STU: I do. I do. I'm actually really interested in the -- the new symbol of international of feminist protest that I hope you guys are on top of. It is -- it's basically the diagram of a woman's lady parts.

PAT: Oh.

STU: And then it's flipping you off.

JEFFY: Nice!

PAT: Really?

STU: I don't know how to describe it. Jeffy, how would you describe this exactly?

PAT: Yes. The hoo-ha. And part of the hoo-ha has . . the fallopian tube just comes up and flips you off.

JEFFY: That's fantastic.

PAT: Nice. That's very classy.

STU: First of all, there's a site writing about this. It says how Jezebel -- the website -- unknowingly created an international symbol of feminist protest. The author of the article Jezebel.

So they've now said that they created this. And it's an international symbol. But I love this because the reason they created it is because they wanted women to take a stand I guess. And they were discussing how women were taking a strong feminist stand by saying F you to the CDC about drinking while pregnant.

They will not live under your guidelines about staying away from alcohol while pregnant. Darn you.

PAT: What?

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: And if you try to squash a woman's right by not allowing her to get plastered in the eighth month or the third month or the fifth month --

JEFFY: Whatever month, Stu.

STU: -- right, whatever month! Then you are a monster. And a horrible, horrible violation of women's rights.

JEFFY: That is amazing.

STU: What a great story to launch a movement on. We want the right to be able to get sloshed when we've got a kid inside.

PAT: Which, by the way, they have. It's just that most women care about their babies inside the womb and don't.

STU: Yeah. Yeah.

PAT: But there's no law that says you can't drink when you're pregnant.

STU: Right. That's why you have the signs everywhere. Guys -- we would request that if you're pregnant, you don't have nine shots of tequila every evening in ever restaurant. Because I go to classy restaurants obviously.

But they do have that all the time. Like the warning for alcohol. One of the main ones they would post or put on a bottle of alcohol is pregnant women should not consume this product because of, you know, some side effects. It's not necessarily a good thing for the baby.

You know, there are obviously parts of -- there's lines to that. But it's still an amazing thing that you launch an international symbol of women's protest on the back of an article about how you should be able to say F you to the CDC while trying to stop you from drinking while pregnant.

PAT: I don't even recognize our dimension anymore.

(laughter)

We've slipped into a new dimension. It must be one of the 28 different dimensions that Neil Patrick Warren matches people on eHarmony.com. I don't recognize it. I really don't. It's unbelievable. You know what we should do is organize an international day without white men. And every white man just stay home. Let's get some appreciation there.

FEC's Twitter/Hunter Biden ruling was RIGHT? Conservative FEC Commissioner explains

Remember when Twitter blocked the New York Post's Hunter Biden laptop story from being shared right before the 2020 election? The FEC ruled that Twitter did NOT violate election laws by doing so. But while many on the right questioned if this was the right call, Glenn has a talk with conservative FEC Commissioner Trey Trainor, who explains why he personally disagrees with Twitter's decision to block the story, but agrees with the FEC's final ruling: "Everybody on the right would have gotten a complaint filed against them immediately if we would have found that Twitter violated campaign finance rules."

WATCH: Weaponizing Crisis: Exposing the Hidden Hand After January 6

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below:

‘Both miraculous and horrendous’: Glenn Beck gives emotional update on Afghanistan rescue

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Economic TAILSPIN? THIS may be why The Fed stopped publishing GDP reports

Branches of The Federal Reserve Bank recently announced — while nobody was paying attention — their decisions to stop publishing GDP forecast reports that the financial industry 'has used forever,' Glenn says. But now new updates from the Atlanta Fed may provide clues as to why these reports have been suspended. Those clues hint at a coming 'economic tailspin,' Glenn says. And, 'When you know something is going to cause the economy to go into a tailspin,' Glenn explains, 'you can either just say, well, that's the truth…or you can just hide it. You can just not publish it.'
