Why Don’t We Know a Motive for the Attack on Sen. Rand Paul?

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is recovering from some serious injuries after a neighbor allegedly attacked him on Nov. 3, leaving him with six broken ribs and cuts on his face.

He talked about the incident in his first interview since the assault, saying, “From my perspective, I’m not really too concerned about what someone’s motive is. I’m just concerned that I was attacked from the back and somebody broke six of my ribs and gave me a damaged lung where at least for now I have trouble speaking and breathing and now I’ve hurt for 10 days.”

On today’s show, Glenn wondered why this attack wasn’t a bigger story and what actually happened.

GLENN: Bernie Sanders was going out to recycle his -- his cans. And a neighbor attacked him last night and broke both of his legs.

Now, if I told you that story and it was true, that would be pretty outrageous, right? It would probably be the biggest thing that has happened. I mean, it would be everywhere. If I told you that Elizabeth Warren's arm was pulled out of her socket by an angry neighbor when she went to pick up her Amazon Prime box of presidential buttons, everyone would be really upset, and they should be. Why? Because you're human. You have feelings. No person should be viciously assaulted by another person. And at that point, your political opinions don't mean anything. But speaking of political views, you could just imagine how crazy the left would be over one of their own being treated so badly. But they would be livid, right? And calling for immediate criminal prosecution, if it was happening to one of theirs. Right?

Why is it we hear crickets when it comes to Rand Paul's attack? In his first interview since he was assaulted by his neighbor, Rand struggled to speak. He has six broken ribs and a damaged lung. Despite his injuries, he tried to explain that there was still no motive that he could imagine. Rand said, this was his first encounter with this neighbor when he was attacked. They never had words over anything.

Now, there have been this ridiculous story that his neighbor attacked the senator because of grass clippings. And then it came out that he had vitriolic feelings for the Republicans and he was very anti-Trump.

Now, Rand does have a record of siding with Trump, but he is by no means the president's cheerleader. There was also talk about the yard maintenance and the property line. But all of the neighbors have debunked that as a false narrative.

So what the hell is going on? A US senator was attacked. We know one thing for certain: Rand's neighbor who was charged with fourth degree assault.

How does that even work? He was released on Saturday, on a 7,500-dollar bail.

Isn't it time we all find some common ground and say, it doesn't matter if it's Bernie Sanders or Rand Paul? We have to make sure the attacker knows that his behavior is not acceptable, no matter what your political bent is.

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.

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."
