Three Things You Need to Know - November 16, 2017

Even Moore Accusers.

“He didn’t pinch it. He grabbed it.”

That’s a new allegation from another woman accusing the Senate hopeful Roy Moore of sexual misconduct.

In the first accusation that happened after Moore was already married, Tina Johnson claims that Moore grabbed her behind when she was at his office seeking his legal help with child custody in 1991.

Tina Johnson wasn’t the only person to come forward yesterday with new accusations against Moore.

Twenty-two years prior, Gena Richardson recalled a 30-year-old Moore regularly stalking the mall she worked at. Gena recounts that Moore would often come by her section of Sears and talk to her. On more than one occasion her asked the 18-year-old out. She would usually tell him no and that her dad was a pastor and very strict. But according to Gena, Moore wouldn’t take no for an answer. She was in trigonometry class at Gadsden High when she was summoned to the principal’s office over the intercom in her classroom. She had a phone call.

It was Roy Moore and he had called the high school to ask her out on a date again.

She eventually said yes and they went to the movie theatre at the mall where she worked.

It was a normal date until Moore drove Gena to her car after the movie and forcefully kissed her.

After that, she never wanted to see him again.

Moore’s campaign responded to the new allegations with this statement:

“If you are a liberal and hate Judge Moore, apparently he groped you. If you are a conservative and love Judge Moore, you know these allegations are a political farce.”

It is hard to tell what it true and what’s not here. What’s political cannon fodder and what’s real emotional and physical trauma that’s been hidden away for so long? These women should be believed at face value and their accusations should be looked into.

As for Roy Moore, whether these allegations are true or not, he needs to understand that his campaign is in a death spiral and that the best thing for him to do is to get out.

Mnuchin PR Masterpiece

Republicans are now within striking distance of two BIG objectives: tax reform and FINALLY putting a big dent in Obamacare. The GOP is set to approve their tax-reform measure, which includes a repeal of the individual mandate, sometime later today. The margin of error, however, is small. Just yesterday, Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin announced he would be the first Republican to break off and vote NO. Will anyone else follow his lead?

The hours leading up to the vote are crucial. You could almost hear the gears churning over at the White House communications department from all across the country. How could they improve their image, become a little more relatable, and - in the process- improve their chances of scoring a big win on the Senate floor?

The answer was so obvious! Deploy the Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and his smoking hot actress wife for a super hot selfie with a bunch of sheets of cash! The public would never know what hit them. It would be a PR coup the likes of which would make even Mugabe recoil in fear.

So that’s what they did. Mnuchin held up a giant sheet of crisp dollar bills that were the first to bear his signature. His wife, standing next to him, gave a smoldering gaze at the camera. Dressed uncannily like Kylo Ren, she looked ready to explode into a dark side fueled lightsaber frenzy. Hope Kicks must have sat back in her chair, propped up her feet, and enjoyed this masterful work of communications art. The tax-reform and individual mandate vote were as good as won. The administration hadn’t looked this slick since the President launched paper towel packages at a gathering of Hurricane victims.

The only thing that could have made this look better… MAYBE… is if Mnuchin made it rain with those dollar bills while a hard base hitting pop song rocked the house. Anyway, a win’s a win. Let’s give the Communications Department their props. You crushed it. Game, Set, Match.

Kids Are Bad for the Earth?

Kids are messy, right? But messy is only half the story. Your kids are actually destroying the planet.

I wish I was joking, but earth death is no laughing matter. Our gases and factory fumes are bad enough for the atmosphere. Co2 emissions? Child’s play compared to the havoc your toddler is wreaking on the earth. Okay bad choice of words to call it “child’s play.”

NBC News posted a story yesterday, a think piece if you will, titled “Science proves kids are bad for Earth. Morality suggests we stop having them.”

The author says, “We need to stop pretending kids don’t have environmental and ethical consequences.” I agree – you bring a newborn home and it’s going to mess with your environment in a big way. I mean the noise alone, and at night when you’re trying to sleep? Totally wrecks the home environment.

And the ethical consequences… the baby wakes you up in the middle of the night again. Do you pretend to stay asleep and hope your spouse deals with it? Or what about this one – the baby needs a diaper change. Do you pretend not to notice until another family member takes care of it? So many ethical dilemmas with children.

Okay, I don’t think that’s exactly the kind of “environmental and ethical consequences” he’s talking about, but I’m bending over backward to find any common ground here because this is absurd. The author goes on to say that “having a child is a major contributor to climate change” and even better, that “having a child… is one of the worst things you can do for the environment.”

The Left ridicules people on the Right for not taking climate change seriously. Here’s a helpful tip: a lot of times it’s because of ridiculous articles like this one. This author seems very sincere – a research scholar at the Berman Institute of Bioethics. But all over the world, right now, children are starving to death, ravaged by disease, and sold into slavery, yet the premise of his article is that it’s morally wrong to have children because they leave too big of a carbon footprint.

Actually, it’s morally wrong to have children and not take care of them. So until we get that problem solved, you may want to re-think your understanding of “moral responsibility.”

Perspective and priorities – two things the Left really struggles with.

MORE 3 THINGS

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
