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

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.
