Three Things You Need to Know - October 25, 2017

Clinton campaign and DNC colluded on Trump dossier.

Get ready to put on your ultimate shocked face. We finally know who funded Fusion GPS and the infamous Trump Dossier. What used to be thought of as just “unknown Hillary Clinton supporters” is now known AS... the actual Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. I’ll give you a few seconds to recover from the shock. I’m sure no one in America actually suspected the Democratic leadership was behind this thing.

The truth is that those involved in funding this thing have been lying about it for over a year. We STILL wouldn’t know today if weren't for a federal subpoena for Fusion GPS’ bank records. The law firm retained by the Clinton Campaign and the DNC released Fusion from their client-confidentiality obligation yesterday. So now we know.

The timeline is starting to become clear. A Republican client, whose identity is still unknown, hired Fusion GPS to dig up information on Trump during the primaries. Apparently, there was nothing worth using so the contract ended. Around April 2016 the law firm representing the Clinton Campaign and the DNC picked up the payments to Fusion so they could keep digging. It was then that Christopher Steele, the former British MI6 agent, was hired and began compiling the Trump Dossier. The dossier began circulating around Washington soon after.

Steele’s dossier eventually made its way to the FBI, and it’s been reported that the information within helped kick off the Trump/Russia investigation. Did the FBI use that to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on the Trump Campaign? These questions have new meaning now that we know who was giving the orders and cutting the checks.

But wait, this gets worse. Fusion GPS was also hired by another law firm back in 2013 who was representing Natalia Veselnitskaya. Remember her? She’s the Russian lawyer that met with Don Jr. in Trump Tower. Veselnitskaya and Fusion GPS were helping the Russians get the Magnitsky Act overturned.

So let’s get this straight. Fusion GPS has been employed directly or indirectly by: the Russian’s, the Clinton Campaign, the DNC, and was almost given money by the FBI. The latter of which may have based some of their Russia collusion investigation off of information given to them by a firm that was employed not too long ago by agents of the Kremlin.

How’s that Russia collusion investigation looking now? Are they even looking at the right people?

We can’t afford to trade a Flake for a bigger flake.

Regret.

It’s a complicated and torturous emotion.

Yesterday, regret about the state of affairs in the White House led Arizona Senator Jeff Flake to not seek re-election.

Jeff Flake’s speech wasn’t a thinly veiled criticism of the President. It was an outright condemnation.

There’s an element of bravery in speaking out, however, let’s not overstate how brave it is to look at the polls, see yourself down by 30, and quit. Still, as an elected representative, it’s his responsibility to speak out like he did yesterday, if he believes he must.

I know I worry about the nastiness, the belittling, and division coming from our own elected officials, too.

I have definitely had my differences with Jeff Flake in the past as you might know. Conservatives had great hope for him, and he’s been an incredible disappointment.

Let’s remember that this is a guy who refused to fight to defund Obamacare in 2013. He joined the ‘Gang of Eight’ and took a pro-amnesty position. Flake voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general.

He was for raising the debt ceiling without spending cuts.

He has consistently advanced gun control legislation, funding for Planned Parenthood and was for the Iran nuclear deal.

Do not laud him as the conservative knight in shining armor. The truth is Flake was in a difficult position. He was facing a tough primary challenge from Kelli Ward, a populist candidate backed by Steve Bannon, and instead of facing a loss, Flake pulled a legacy move.

Personally, I’m happy Flake is out. But, who we replace him with is important. We don’t want another John McCain - but we also don’t need a Bannon mouthpiece.We can’t afford to trade a Flake for a bigger flake.

The unmasking of Hollywood scum continues.

“You can run, but you can’t hide!”

His maniacal threat echoed through her body and sent her adrenaline into overdrive.

She was running as fast as she could, but he was still trailing her in his town car.

Aspiring actress Stephanie Kearns will always remember that night filmmaker James Toback assaulted her in Central Park.

“It was like a horror movie,” she said.

Unfortunately, Kearns experience with Toback is shared by hundreds, you heard that right, hundreds of women according to a new bombshell investigative report by the LA Times.

Today Show anchor Natalie Morales and veteran actress Julianne Moore have spoken up about their creepy encounters with Toback.

The majority of the accounts are not verified yet, but most of the women accusing the filmmaker of misconduct follow a similar script. He approached them on the streets on Manhattan, offered them a part in an upcoming movie, and made unwanted sexual advances on them.

Toback, 72, denies the allegations. He claims that it has been “biologically impossible” for him to engage in the behavior described by his accusers for the last two decades.

Whether that is true or not, time will tell.

Look, there have always been creeps in the movie business ready to take advantage of women and leverage power over them.

But Hollywood is learning a hard lesson right now in light of Harvey Weinstein.

This kind of behavior cannot be enabled anymore. The degradation of women in the film industry is unacceptable and Hollywood’s silence for the past few decades won’t soon be forgotten or forgiven.

MORE 3 THINGS

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
