Some Things Are More Important Than Winning

An Alabama woman has alleged that Roy Moore assaulted her when she was 16, grabbing her and trying to force her to perform oral sex on him. Beverly Young Nelson spoke to reporters in New York on Monday, saying that Moore had told her “no one will believe you” if she talked about the attack with anyone else.

Moore responded by saying that he doesn’t even know Nelson; as evidence, she had presented an old high school yearbook with what appears to be a note from him with a signature.

Four women told the Washington Post that Moore pursued relationships with them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers; the most disturbing account came from a woman who said she was only 14 when Moore attempted to seduce her.

Moore faces Alabama voters on Dec. 12 in a special election to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former Senate seat. On today’s show, Glenn called the Alabama election a “microcosm” of what the rest of the country is going through as countless people step forward with accounts of being sexually harassed and assaulted by powerful men.

GLENN: All right. It's not looking good for Roy Moore again today. Senate Republicans really don't want to get him elected, and neither do at least five women now.

Yesterday, Beverly Young Nelson announced at a news conference that Moore attacked her in his car when she was 16 and he was 30.

Nelson said Moore offered to drive her home one night after she was waitressing on her shift and it was over. Her boyfriend didn't show up. So he said, I'll take you home.

She said, they got into the car. And he drove her to the back of the restaurant, where he locked the doors. And then he groped her. He tried to take her skirt off, grabbed her neck, and tried to force her head towards his crotch.

She said, I thought he was going to rape me. After she struggled against his advances, she said that he dumped her out of the car in the parking lot and sped away.

She also said that Moore told her that he was the district attorney, and she was just a child and no one will ever believe you if she tried to report the incident.

Moore says this is all a witch hunt. But even if one of the allegations against him is even partially true, everybody in Washington is saying he should drop out of the race and check into therapy.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believes the woman and now wants Moore to drop out. Now Republicans are brainstorming ways to kick Moore out, even if he wins, in Alabama's special Senate election on December 12th. One option would be for Republicans to allow him to be seated in the US, the Senate. And then expel him.

Some are even considering a write-in candidate. That seems unrealistic this close to the election. But then again, no Democrat has ever won a Senate seat from Alabama in 25 years. So it may not be so farfetched.

This Alabama Senate election is a microcosm of America's current social and political quagmire. The flood of sexual assault and harassment accusations against powerful men and the willingness of voters on the right and the left to overlook serious character problems in candidates in order to win.

Some things are more important than winning. Will America rediscover them?

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century."

Gov. Kristi Noem DEFENDS against claims she’s ‘CAVING’ to NCAA on Title IX

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem had a tense interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week over claims she caved to the NCAA. Rather than signing a bill banning transgender girls and women from competing against biological females in sports, Noem returned it to the legislature for 'style and form' changes, arguing to Carlson the current version 'wouldn't solve the problem.' Noem joins Glenn to defend her decision, saying conservatives must be 'strategic' in the fight to defend Title IX.
