Three Things You Need to Know - October 26, 2017

Bush 41 --- Rear Patter.

War hero.

41st President of the United States.

Rear Patter.

George H. W. Bush is under attack for patting a woman’s behind in 2014. I can’t believe I just said that sentence. Yesterday, actress Heather Lind accused H.W. of patting her on the rear and making a joke.

Quote, “I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, he sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo. He didn’t shake my hand. He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side. He told me a dirty joke. And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again. Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say “not again.”

The alleged joke she is referring to goes like this, “Do you know who my favorite magician is? David Cop-a-Feel.”

That’s just a terrible joke. David Copperfield isn’t even relevant anymore!

Bush was forced to issue an official statement from his office on the matter that reads “At age 93, President Bush has been confined to a wheelchair for roughly five years, so his arm falls on the lower waist of people with whom he takes pictures. To try to put people at ease, the president routinely tells the same joke-and on occasion, he has patted women’s rears in what he intended to be a good-natured manner. Some have seen it as innocent; others clearly view it as I inappropriate. To anyone he has offended, President Bush apologizes sincerely.”

C’mon people, this is ridiculous. Bush is not a sexual predator.

You can’t group Bush 41 in with the likes of Harvey Weinstein.

It’s like apples and bananas. They’re not the same.

Why did Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch Stonewall Congress?

The Obama administration never intended for you to hear what’s about to become public.

An informant, undercover for five years, gathered information on Russia’s efforts to grow its atomic energy business, not in Siberia, but here in the United States. Not only were the Russian’s successful in controlling a large swath of American Uranium, but they did so by engaging in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering. In Russia, they probably call that business as usual, but in America, we have one word for that type of venture: ILLEGAL.

According to an article in The Hill last week, the FBI was aware of all this BEFORE the Obama administration approved the deal, and a big source of their evidence came from this undercover informant. Now up until just recently, all we heard on this was whispers and rumors, but last night the Department of Justice cleared the way for the informant to speak to Congress.

Now hang on a second. Why wasn’t this done years ago? This informant witnessed a slew of illegal activity by a hostile nation looking to control one of our strategic assets. That kinda sounds like it might be relevant. It’s been EIGHT YEARS since he went undercover with the FBI and Congress hasn’t heard a peep.

So why did both Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch stonewall Congress from hearing the informant’s testimony? He literally had a Department of Justice gag order, not to keep him from telling his girlfriend or neighbor about his super cool time as an FBI spy, but to keep the truth from the American people. Why would they do that?

Well, let’s see. According to The Hill, when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Russia routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, and Bill Clinton collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in Russian speaking fees. This was all allegedly part of Russian efforts to influence the U.S. government to approve the Uranium deal. The informant's attorney said that her client will be able to shed light on quote “what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”

Well then. That kind of puts this gag order in new context. Get your popcorn ready. This is about to get interesting.

Let’s all learn a lesson from 'Dudley Dough' pizza.

“Pizza with a purpose.”

That’s the motto of Boston area restaurant “Dudley Dough.”

They serve the usual fare. Pizza, coffee, and…economic justice.

Dudley Dough was opened in 2015 by the nonprofit organization Haley House to test out their ideas of economic justice and fair wages.

But sadly, just two years after opening, Dudley Dough is closing their doors. By all accounts, the pizza was delicious and fresh. It was their social justice inspired business model that was rotten.

The pizza joint started out with money (a $100,000 donation from the owner of the New England Patriots) but since they weren’t intent on really making any dough on their own, the business failed.

Look, Dudley Dough had some really nice ideas. They made sure they paid their employees more than minimum wage and donated pizza for daily tutoring sessions. That’s nice!

But what would really be nice, for the employees and clients, is if they were still open. Making money is not evil. It’s a fact that capitalist minded people and the businesses they start are better able to share their money and success with exponentially more people.

If Dudley Dough struck a good balance between taking care of their community and taking care of finances, they might still be in business.

Let’s all learn a lesson from Dudley Dough. Social justice is worse than anchovies on pizza.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
