It Didn’t Take Long to Politicize the New York Attack

What’s going on?

As usual, both political “teams” are trying to spin the latest tragedy to fit their agenda. After the terrorist attack in New York City on Tuesday, President Donald Trump pointed at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for supporting the “diversity visa” program that reportedly allowed suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov to come into the country.

So what did Trump tweet this time?

“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this! The terrorist came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty,” Trump said in a pair of tweets on Tuesday.

Glenn’s take:

On today’s show, Glenn corrected the record on who officially gave us that immigration policy: a Republican president.

“It’s actually not a ‘Chuck Schumer beauty,’” Glenn fact-checked the tweet. “Do you know who signed that bill into law?” he asked. “George H.W. Bush.”

VOICE: You got kids in there? All right. Hold on.

GLENN: This is the sound yesterday in New York City, as an Islamic terrorist --

VOICE: Are you okay? Oh, my God. Are you okay? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

GLENN: -- slammed into the back of a school bus.

VOICE: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

GLENN: Two kids were hurt. One seriously -- critical condition today.

VOICE: Right here.

GLENN: So what are we talking about? I mean, it didn't take long to politicize the terrorist attack yesterday in New York City. It's in full swing. This time, it's our side: Donald Trump immediately took to Twitter to blame Senator Chuck Schumer for the attacker, Sighpov, for being in the country in the first place. Trump tweeted that the murderer came to our country through what was called the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, a Chuck Schumer beauty. It's actually not a Chuck Schumer beauty.

Listen. I'll give you the facts in a second. He went on to write, we're fighting hard for merit-based immigration. No more Democrat lottery systems. We have to get much tougher and much smarter. Schumer fired back with a tweet. I guess it's not too soon to politicize a tragedy. You've got to be kidding me, coming from Schumer. Stop it. Both sides, stop it.

Chuck Schumer, the king of politicizing. So please, I don't want to hear it from either of you. Can we be adults! Do you know who signed that bill into law? Chuck Schumer was just one of the cosponsors. You know who signed that into law? George H.W. Bush.

So it's not a Democratic thing. Both sides were involved in that. Instead of typing snarky comments to one another, why don't you start using your platform to talk about Ryan Nash?

Ryan Nash was the police officer, routine call when he was faced with an unimaginable situation. He came face-to-face with Sighpov. Twenty-eight-year-old officer knew what he had to do: stop the killing spree.

He shot him yesterday. Who knows what other atrocities would have occurred, if Nash had not stopped the attacker. Can we take a moment and just thank our police officers for being there? Can we be adults and stop the mind less tweeting and focus on what matters most?

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars."

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
