Dan Rather Once Excused Bill Clinton Assault Allegations; ‘It Happened a Long Time Ago’

Sexual harassment and assault allegations have been dominating the news since Harvey Weinstein was outed as a sexual predator. As politicians like Roy Moore and Sen. Al Franken field reports of their sexual misconduct, people on both sides of the aisle have wondered if it’s time to revisit allegations that Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick and other women.

Newsbusters recently dug up former news anchor Dan Rather’s comments on Broaddrick’s story back in 1999, and they have not aged well.

Rather said of the allegation “even if it does it turns out to be true, it happened a long time ago … maybe the American public has heard all they want to hear about this and are saying you know, ‘Next. Let’s move on to the next thing.’”

GLENN: All right. So I -- I want to -- I want to state the case, that it's okay if you say I don't believe these accusers. And I'm going to vote for Roy Moore. I really don't believe them. You could say, I -- I -- I kind of believe them, but it was 30 years ago. So it doesn't really matter. And vote for Roy Moore.

But the only way you can really be consistent is if you said that during the Clinton years. Because, remember, those were old too. Those were 20 years old. Does it matter? Why didn't they come out then? If it was so bad, why didn't they come out then? Well, because he was the attorney general and then the he was governor. He had a lot of power. It's almost the same story. He was the attorney general and then he became a senator and a judge. So who is going to believe you over him? So were you consistent?

Now, the media. The media is saying, this is really important, we have to know what happened 30 years ago. Was that where they stood at the time? Listen to Dan Rather at the time on Don Imus.

VOICE: This Juanita Broaddrick thing -- this interview that the people there at NBC News have been sitting on for some reason, who knows.

VOICE: Well, the reason is pretty obvious. They don't call me and tell me why they don't or do run these things. But it's pretty obvious they're nervous about, number one, whether this information is accurate, whether it's true or not. And then number two, even if it does turn out to be true, it happened a long time ago. And number three, they got to be figuring maybe just maybe the American public has heard all they want to hear about this.

GLENN: What? What?

VOICE: And they saying, let's move on to the next thing.

GLENN: What?

VOICE: Written either in TIME or Newsweek, that even the woman herself, Juanita Broaddrick, said she hoped that this thing went away this week. Even if she was sick about hearing about it, and it's her story.

VOICE: Well, let's hope she gets her way about that.

GLENN: Whoa.

STU: Wow.

VOICE: But somebody from NBC News told me that she wasn't clear about exactly when it happened, but then her son called me, and he's an attorney someplace. And I guess in Arkansas. And he wanted me to know why he called me, God knows. But wanted me to know, that was not the case. She knew exactly when it was. So there was some other reason he thought they were sitting on it.

VOICE: Well, you know, I know Newsweek magazine has accused me and others of sucking up to you. So here we go. The reason he called you is you're the fastest way in the country to get the news out on something like that. But I just don't know whether this is going anywhere.

You know, I'd have to bet to the moment, it probably isn't. Washington Post gave it a pretty good ride on Saturday. There wasn't much pickup from it. So unless there's some new and sensational information developed out of it. My guess is, it probably dribbles away. But as you know better than most, I've been so wrong about this story from the very beginning.

GLENN: Yeah. And others. Okay.

So that's Dan Rather back then. The story really doesn't have any legs because it was a long time ago. We all just hope they go away. Where are they now? That was an actual rape accusation. Where are you today?

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
