Three Things You Need to Know - November 9, 2017

Screaming Helplessly at the Sky

You could hear the screams from a block away. The shrieks sounded desperate and filled with agony.

The screaming went on for what seemed like hours. But their cries for help would not be answered. Because there really was nothing to save them from.

These group of protesters were helplessly screaming at the sky.

Literally.

Last night activists gathered together on street corners in New York City, Chicago, and DC, to attend a Facebook event called “Scream helplessly at the sky on the anniversary of the election.”

People actually RSVPed and showed up in major cities to shout into the night sky about how much they hate Trump.

Sure, it’s a better way to relieve their frustration than trolling people on social media and typing nasty messages to those with different political views, but come on.

Do these people have jobs or families or anything better to do with their lives?

Were there no reruns of Friends or Golden Girls to watch last night?

Was there no fresh paint to watch dry?

That would be a better use of their time. If you’re a leftist activist at least take some sort of peaceful action or come up with a witty limerick to chant. You’re better than this.

Screaming helplessly at the sky just makes you look ridiculous and won’t eject Trump from office. But it will add a ton of unnecessary CO2 to the atmosphere. And you don’t want that, do you?

Racial Graffiti Hoax

What defines who you are?

In late September, five black students woke up to find a message written on the marker boards outside their dorm rooms. The messages read, “Go home n*****.” The students attend the Air Force Academy’s Prep School, hoping to become cadets at the Air Force Academy.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville and the NFL national anthem protests, these hate messages just threw gasoline on the fire of racial debate in America. How could racism like this exist at one of our nation’s most prestigious military academies?

The messages prompted Lieutenant General Jay Silveria to gather the entire Air Force Academy student body and staff for a forceful rebuke. He said, “If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect – then you need to get out.” Video of his rebuke was viewed over a million times on YouTube.

This week the Air Force Academy Prep School announced they have one less “cadet candidate” in their ranks. He has been expelled because he admitted to writing the racial slurs outside the dorm rooms of his black schoolmates.

It also turns out that this racist incident was a hoax because the perpetrator was actually one of the five black students.

Why did he do it? Apparently, it was a weird attempt to get out of trouble he was in for other misconduct at the academy. This sounds like an immature teen who made a terrible decision – one he’s already paying for now that he won’t have a chance to attend the Air Force Academy.

But this is not a time to gloat and say, “See? These alleged hate crimes are all hoaxes!” Some of them are hoaxes, but real hate crimes still happen in our country. Racism is still a cancer in our society.

This message obviously isn’t getting through to our youth, so I’ll repeat it – your skin color does not define you. Your background does not define you – it affects you, but it doesn’t define you. Unless you let it. What was it someone said?… something about being judged by the content of your character? Only you define you.

If we all spent a lot more time working on the content of our own character, we wouldn’t have time for racism, real or imagined.

Al Green's Deadline

Parlor tricks and sideshows. That’s what the Democrats are resorting to. Yesterday, Texas Democrat Al Green stood before the House and gave his colleagues a Christmas deadline to vote on impeaching President Trump.

This is hardly the first time he’s done this. Green actually unveiled formal articles of impeachment last month. Spoiler alert: it never made it to the floor for a vote. Now, I’m no law student or anything, but I’m just gonna go out on a limb here. Maybe you need evidence or a reason to impeach a sitting president? I know that sounds crazy… I mean, I’m just saying.

Even if Democrats DID have somewhat of a good reason to attempt an impeachment, it would never make it through the House. So what is Green doing?

Hardly anyone is talking about this, but the Democratic Party is in serious trouble. Eight years of Obama has left it bankrupt and even extorted by the Clinton campaign. Funding continues to be a disaster. The RNC raises over 3 times the amount of money as the DNC month after month. All the hoopla has been on the Virginia election, but Republicans still have governors in over 30 states. Over 20 states have GOP control in both the governorship AND the legislature.

It’s no surprise what we’re seeing now. Donna Brazile has declared open war on her party. Why? She’s clearly jumped on team Bernie, but - ultimately - she probably just wanted to sell books and make some money. Congressman Al Green knows there’s no shot his impeachment call goes forward. Why’s he doing it? For the same reason Brazille did what she did… to get some attention and raise some money.

Democrats are in serious trouble. They’re broke and they lack any cohesive unifying message. They’re not connecting with anyone. So what can we expect to see the next few months leading up to the midterms? Parlor tricks and sideshows.

MORE 3 THINGS

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
