The Strange Alliance Between Steve Bannon and Alex Jones

Word on the street is that Steve Bannon is leaking valid scoops to ridiculous media personalities like Alex Jones to give them more credibility.

"Apparently he is feeding Alex Jones --- and a guy who is even crazier than Alex Jones --- legitimate scoops to be able to prop up their conspiracy theories," Glenn said on radio Wednesday.

That slash-and-burn approach confuses the waters.

"If you can't believe anything, then you'll believe everything," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment beginning at mark 29:20 from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: But this is what people do. I mean, Jeffy is a good example of that. It's how people think. They will take 100 statements in a row they know are false. Look for one that has the slightest bit of truth and investigate it. It's so bizarre.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, that takes us right back to the White House. This is what Bannon is doing. Remember, Bannon is a burn it down. What's he want to burn down? The system. The best way to burn down the system is ruin your trust in everything.

If you can't believe anything, then you'll believe everything. It's just, who is the strongest up at the top of the hill? And he plans on being that guy.

So what is he doing?

STU: He is -- well, again, the reports are that he is leaking and other White House officials are leaking valid scoops to people who are generally would be considered a conspiracy theorist or crazy people. Like Alex Jones.

GLENN: Yeah, we're talking about the Alex Jones and worse.

STU: And worse. And the reason they're doing this is because they want people to believe there are more crazy things. So when -- you leak something to Alex Jones and he comes out with it and he turns out to be right, just like when the president during the campaign used the argument with National Enquirer, well, you know, Ted Cruz -- did his dad kill JFK? Or was he involved in some way? But they had the John Edwards thing right.

PAT: They got that right.

STU: So they used -- they had X, Y, and Z right. So you can give a couple examples, and that one is, I mean, really hard. You're talking about 30 years of the National Enquirer being wrong, and you can pull out three or four stories where they were right. Here, you know, these are people that most people are not at all -- are not at all familiar with.

GLENN: Alex Jones is wrong more times than the National Enquirer in one day.

PAT: Oh, I'll not have you disparage this man.

GLENN: He's wrong more times than the National Enquirer has been in 30 years.

STU: Well, you're valuing frequency over timeline, and I understand that. But either way --

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Listen to all the things this guy had right. Listen to them.

ALEX: And to feel what the children are feeling.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: He's feeling it.

ALEX: God Almighty.

STU: He's feeling the children.

GLENN: Don't do it, Pat. Here he goes. (crying).

ALEX: Folks -- folks, we got to get good people to stand up against these people. (crying).

(chuckling)

PAT: I probably shouldn't have done the show today.

ALEX: I probably shouldn't even have done this radio show today.

PAT: Or any day.

ALEX: Because I have this disgusted cover.

STU: Globalists.

ALEX: I just hate the globalists, but it's more than that.

STU: I love that.

(laughter)

ALEX: I just get flippant and angry, but it's because deep down, I can see what they're doing. And we have a responsibility.

PAT: Tell us why. Tell us why, Alex.

GLENN: Where are the men?

ALEX: To stop these globalists.

Where are the men in this country? Where are the men in this world? What the hell have we become? We just offer our children up to the system with the fluoride in the water and the GMO hurting them. And we let fat perverts grab them at the airport to train them for the pedophile government.

PAT: Right.

ALEX: And we've just got such a sick society.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: Earlier, I was going to say, no, his lawyer is lying. And he's not a performance artist. But that is such performance. I mean, there's no way that is real.

PAT: No, I think it is.

JEFFY: Oh, I don't know. We've watched enough clips --

PAT: I think it's real. I think it's real.

JEFFY: We've watched enough clips. If you start rolling into more and more Alex Jones clips, you get to the point where it's real.

PAT: Well, it's all like this. It's all some version of this.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: It's not all as hysterical, where he's crying and slobbering. But it's all, you know, screaming. And the intensity is always there.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: He's just -- that's him.

GLENN: What I know is real with him is when he takes his shirt off, he's -- something snaps in him.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Really dark snaps in him. And he takes his shirt off. And it's like a roid rage.

STU: Well, it's just because I've had some jalapeÒos. I've been eating some jalapenos.

PAT: I ate a steak last night. I ate a steak. A T-bone. Got a lot of testosterone. Lot of protein.

GLENN: I eat steak almost every day. You know, I have hamburger. I have meat of some sort from a cow.

PAT: Right. Me too. Me too.

GLENN: Almost every day. Never have that problem.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: My testosterone is very low. Don't have that problem.

(chuckling)

STU: Plenty of other problems. But not that.

GLENN: Not that.

JEFFY: Think of this though. That right there got custody of the kids, right?

PAT: Yeah, that's crazy. I mean, how did that happen?

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: How did that happen?

GLENN: So what does that mean about his wife? Do we know anything about his wife?

JEFFY: I don't know. I know.

GLENN: How does his wife lose custody?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: Oh. I would give -- I mean, if I could just take a vacation and just go down -- wouldn't that be the most entertaining vacation.

JEFFY: It would be so much fun.

PAT: Yeah, to be at that trial.

GLENN: Oh, to be at that trial and just sit there and watch that. That is -- I mean, I would bring popcorn. That's a movie.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: If you want to -- if you want to go down and you want to be the, you know, reporter for us and, you know, call in tomorrow, call us right now.

JEFFY: That would be great.

STU: That would be interesting to see.

PAT: That would be fun.

STU: I mean, there's a couple of reporters in there. I guess, day one, there was almost no one in the courtroom. And now --

GLENN: It's starting to get packed.

PAT: It's packed?

STU: They're bringing in a crowd now.

GLENN: No, it's a show. Come on, that's a show. That's a great thing.

On the Basis of Sex. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you probably didn't expect those five words to come out of me this morning. No, that's not my version of a clickbait headline to get you to pay attention — although that probably just happened — but this is the title to the new movie based on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Progressives and liberals have been hovering over YouTube like a pack of rabid wolves, anxiously awaiting the first trailer to drop. And — three days — they got their wish. Something in the last few seconds caught my ear. Watch:

Now my first thought after hearing that went something like this: The word "freedom" is literally the fifth frigging word in the first sentence of the First Amendment. It shows up for the second time just two sentences later. How do you screw that up? I always assumed that liberal Hollywood movie makers had never really read the Constitution, but this is just sad.

But my second thought was that maybe they don't consider the Bill of Rights actually part of the Constitution. However, according to the National Constitution Center, the Bill of Rights officially became part of the Constitution — not a separate document — when it was ratified in 1791. This is rather easy to fact check, so there's really no excuse here.

But then I had another thought. Either liberal Hollywood forgot that the Constitution changed in 1791, or they actually prefer the vaguer pre-1791 version of the Constitution where God-given rights can be excluded if the state so pleases. Think about it. The Bill of Rights is the single greatest roadblock to the radical Left's "progress." Do you hate the fact that private gun ownership encourages self reliance and personal freedom? Do you also hate the fact that dissenting views, opinions and speech can't be silenced and crushed? Then the Bill of Rights is a clear and present danger to your agenda. It's enemy number one.

The new Left that is radically moving toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791.

You see, the new Left that is radically moving further toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791. They wish it never happened. The Bill of Rights is a constant reminder that some FREEDOMS can't be given by the government, they're granted by GOD. And that thought — you being aware of that — scares the hell out of them.

Now, it's possible I thought too much into this. It's also possible the screen writer made a simple mistake and thought Ruth Bader Ginsburg was actually born before 1791, figuring it would be a nice tip of the hat to her longevity. I can actually see how you could make that mistake. But it's also possible that this is a sign of the times we live in.

The Bill of Rights is under attack, maybe more now than ever. It's never been more important to let the Constitution of 1791 be our guide, true north and lighthouse.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

How did this slip by?

The Left has been foaming at the mouth waiting for this movie to drop and when the trailer finally hit the interwebs, it ended with an embarrassing factual error about the Constitution.

What will happen when the Titan kneels?

You can tell that the NFL season is approaching because you can hear the whining from highly-paid athletes as they prepare their kneepads for some kneeling.

In May, the NFL instated a policy that penalizes players who take a knee during the national anthem.

"A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem," the statement said. "The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem."

Tennessee Titan's defensive end Jurrell Casey has decided that he will continue his whining and kneeling.

"I'm going to take my fine," Casey said in an interview. "It is what it is, I ain't going to let them stop me from doing what I want to do. If they want to have these battles between players and organizations, this is the way it's going to be."

Maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics.

He added that "At the end of the day, we got to do a job, but I will continue to use my platform to keep on speaking up."

Yes, he does have a job to do. And that job is playing football. His bosses have made it clear that political activism is not part of the job. Who knows, maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics. There's also Starbucks. They need a self-righteous CEO.

All anyone can talk about right now is Russia and collusion, and for good reason. Special Counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for cyber attacks and the hacking of cyber-systems in energy, nuclear, water, and manufacturing sectors which you can read about here.

The Trump-Russia scandal, in a word, is maniacal. There are many moving parts that are very hard to solve — or simply don't want to be solved. All of these are "mysteries wrapped in an enigma," asserted Glenn on Wednesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program."



From the curious case of Imran Awan to the hacking of DNC servers to "Russian" meddling in elections via social media, all of these deserve scrutiny.

On today's episode, Glenn examined seven scandals that make up the Russia connection:

  1. Russian operatives who used social media to divide Americans during the 2016 election.
  2. The meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
  3. The Fusion GPS Dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
  4. Voter fraud in Illinois.
  5. Hillary Clinton's emails.
  6. Imran Awan. Awan was an IT staffer for Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives who was part of a federal investigation and was arrested on bank fraud charges.
  7. Lastly, the 2016 DNC email leaks.

When it comes to Donald Trump, Glenn Beck argues that there are three tribes that categorize the way people examine him regarding his foreign and domestic policy.

Tribe one is the #Resistance. They are the ones who believe that everything President Trump does is bad. They're also the ones who call for impeachment and who label President Trump a "treasonous traitor" even before a summit with a foreign leader takes place.

Those, according to Glenn's analysis, include groups like Think Progress, who published an article suggesting that women's rights would be rolled back if the President's SCOTUS nominee is confirmed by the Senate. This tribe also includes progressive talking heads and far Left publications and politicians like The New York Times and Hillary Clinton.

Tribe two are those who defend the President and his actions at all costs. He can do no wrong. These are the people who deny the President's mistakes. They believe the President is a master chess player and everyone else is a pawn in Trump's game.

Both who operate in tribes one and two maintain a "win at all costs" mentality. They don't care what happens as long as their side wins. Glenn calls this a "cult of personality madness."

Tribe three are those who are "free thinkers." These people question the President with boldness and aim for intellectual honesty when evaluating the President's policies and behavior.

Glenn believes tribe one and tribe two are smaller than tribe three.

So, what do all these tribes have to do with Trump and the Russians? Find out in the clip below.
