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.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred.

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
