Three Things You Need to Know - November 10, 2017

What Really Happened With Rand Paul and His Neighbor?

What really happened between Rand Paul and his neighbor? It’s now been exactly one week since Paul was attacked in his front yard, but the story remains a mystery.

The inconsistencies are what’s so strange. It was initially reported that Paul’s injuries were minor. Just a few nicks and scratches on his face and a sore side. We now know that those injuries were severely under reported. Paul suffered SIX broken ribs and bruises on his lungs. Three of his broken ribs were displaced fractures which could have led to internal bleeding and even death. These are not quote “minor injuries” as was reported. There’s only one way to describe this: VICIOUS.

The next inconsistency was the motive. Initially it was said that the attack was the result of a long-running feud the two men had over leaves and lawn clippings. Paul’s neighbors are saying this is ridiculous. One neighbor said that two men hadn’t even spoken to each other in several years. This seems to back up the statement made by Senator Paul’s advisor, Doug Stafford, who said, “The first ‘conversation’ with the attacker happened when Sen. Paul’s ribs were broken. This was not a ‘fight,’ it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person.”

Another neighbor told reporters yesterday that the motive couldn’t have been about leaves or stray grass, saying the Paul’s had one of the most trim and tidy landscaped yards on the street.

An FBI investigation has begun to determine if the attack was motivated by politics. We know that the attacker hates Donald Trump, the GOP, follows Occupy Democrats social media, and makes anti-Republican posts on Facebook. The left is increasingly becoming more violent, and not only is it getting worse but it’s becoming more accepted. An unnamed person in Congress told a CNN reporter this about Paul:

“Can you imagine living next door to that guy? I’m pulling for the neighbor.”

Is this Congressman actually glorifying a possible politically motivated attack on a sitting Senator that resulted in 6 broken ribs and a bruised lung? Welcome to the new norm in violent US politics.

Pedohpile or Political Target?

Is Roy Moore a pedophile or a political target?

Yesterday, The Washington Post alleged that in 1979, when Moore was a single, 32-year-old prosecutor in Alabama, he invited a 14-year-old girl to his house where they had sexual contact, though not intercourse, according to the woman.

Moore is currently running against Democrat Doug Jones in a December 12 special election for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post interviewed four women who say they dated Moore in the late 1970s when they were teenagers and he was in his early thirties.

One of the women, Leigh Corfman, says Moore drove her to his house on two different occasions. Under Alabama law, the contact she says happened on the second visit would be considered a felony with a sentence of up to 10 years in prison. The age of consent at the time, and today is 16. Corfman never filed a police report or a civil suit, so the statute of limitations has long since expired.

The other three women were between the ages of 16-18 when they say Moore took them out on dates. All three say nothing more than occasional kissing ever occurred with Moore.

In 1985, Moore married Kayla Kisor. He was 38, she was 24. They are still married.

Moore has won elections in Alabama before and none of this ever came out. So why now? The special election is just one month away and the stakes are high – Democrats badly need this Senate seat. But, on the other hand, the culture has changed and perhaps these women are motivated by the idea that they are more likely to be believed.

Some are arguing this is a classic last-minute smear campaign. However, The Washington Post story is convincing. The reporters say they interviewed “more than 30 people” for the story, and there are a lot of details.

.

If Corfman’s allegation is true, it’s way beyond just creepy, its against the law, and Moore should drop out of the race. Donald Trump said the same on his trip to Asia.

One thing is clear – some of Moore’s supporters aren’t really helping his situation. Alabama State Auditor Jim Ziegler said, “…take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”

Uh… that case was just slightly different. He didn’t mention the virgin birth part.

Ziegler continued, “There’s just nothing immoral or illegal here. Maybe just a little bit unusual.”

If true, "unusual" is the least of his worries.

The Joke's On Him

Some people accomplish big things in life.

Comedian Louie CK is one of those people.

He has written jokes for the David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, Dana Carvey, and Chris Rock.

He has won six Emmy awards.

He has sold out Madison Square Garden...eight times.

And this week, his first film in sixteen years, was set to premiere.

But it was abruptly canceled due to “unexpected circumstances.”

That “unexpected circumstance” was an article published in the New York Times describing five women and their accusations against Louie CK’s sexual misconduct.

The accusations all detail similar behavior- basically he asked women if he could do things to himself in front of them.

But it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has ever listened to Louie CK’s standup.

Jokes about that sort of thing are a regular part of his stage show. In one bit, he even admits that he is a prisoner to his perverse thoughts and that it makes him into a moron.

He has been using the stage as a confessional for years—as most comedians do.

What Louis CK is accused of is gross and perplexing for a myriad of reasons.

Did he do these things? Louie CK hasn't commented yet, but these incidents have been rumored for a long time.

There are more questions than answers at this point.

Here's what we know:

We need to empower women to say no. We need to empower them to tell their stories at the time they happen, and know they will be taken seriously.

And we need to teach men to be men. To live up to a moral standard. To not give in to their animal instincts.

Oh. And also-- don't ask women if they want to see you do stuff to yourself. THEY DONT.

MORE 3 THINGS

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."
