What’s Really Going on With Rand Paul?

What we know

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was mowing his lawn Sunday when his 59-year-old neighbor, Rene Boucher, tackled him.

What we’ve heard

It was initially reported that Paul’s injuries were minor. However the stories soon changed, revealing that the Senator suffered six broken ribs and bruised lungs.

The attacker’s motive has, according to reports, morphed from a personal dispute over landscaping to undisclosed political motives, which will likely result in “federal charges.”

Glenn’s take

“Something isn’t right. The inconsistencies are just bizarre,” said Glenn on today’s show. He later added, “Welcome to the new norm in violent US politics.”

GLENN: Okay. What the heck happened with Rand Paul and his neighbor? Because this story is -- it's been a week now since Rand Paul was attacked in his front yard, but the story remains a mystery. And something isn't right.

The inconsistencies are just bizarre. First, 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 all of those injuries were severely underreported. Paul suffered six, we were told at first. Well, third. Five broken ribs. Now it's six broken ribs. Bruises on his lungs. Three of the broken ribs were displaced fractures which could have led to internal bleeding and even death. These are not, quote, minor injuries.

There's only one way to describe this, and that is a vicious attack. The next inconsistency was the motive. Initially it was said the attack was a result of a long-running feud the two men had over leaves and lawn clippings. Well, that makes sense, maybe, in an upside down world, if he had minor knicks and scrapes. But one neighbor now said, the two men haven't spoken to each other in several years, which seems to back up a statement made my Senator Paul's adviser, Doug Stafford who said, the first conversation with the attacker happened when Senator Paul's ribs were broken. This was not a fight. It was a blind side, violent attack by a disturbed person. End quote.

Another neighbor told reporters yesterday that the motive couldn't have been about leaves and stray grass, saying that Paul 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 G.O.P., follows Occupy Democrats and social media. Makes anti-Republican posts on Facebook. And we also know the left is becoming increasingly more violent. And not only is it getting worse, but it's becoming more accepted.

Try this: An unnamed person in Congress told a CNN reporter, quote, can you mangle living next door to that guy? I'm pulling for the neighbor, end quote.

Is this congressman actually glorifying a possible politically motivated attack on a sitting senator that resulted in six broken ribs with a bruised lung.

Isn't this what happened before the Civil War? Welcome to the new norm in violent US politics.

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."
