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

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn break it down:

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
