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.

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

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.

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.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?

Big Tech now censors the stories of WW2 VETS too?

Rishi Sharma, founder of Heroes of the Second World War, has spent years interviewing as many World War II veterans that he can. His life passion, he says, is making sure these heroes' stories are recorded and preserved so future generations will never forget their sacrifices. But — perhaps unsurprisingly — Big Tech now stands in the way. Rishi describes to Glenn alleged censorship he believes his YouTube page — which contains many of these WW2 vets' stories — has experienced in the last year. "Makeup tutorials get a billon views, but the men who fought for our freedom...why can't they get the same attention?"
