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.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

RELATED: Changes in technology can be cause for concern, but THIS is amazing

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

RELATED: Here's why Israel used lethal force during mass protests in Gaza yesterday

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
