Keith Olbermann Is Retiring Because Trump Impeachment Is ‘Unavoidable’

Sports commentator Keith Olbermann is abandoning “The Resistance,” his political web series for GQ. What’s his rationale? The “seven different inevitable outcomes” for President Donald Trump are so certain that he will absolutely be impeached, so Olbermann no longer needs to keep fighting the resistance fight.

“He has dealt the Trump administration such a severe gut punch that he can now retire from political commentary for good,” Glenn said sarcastically on today’s show.

GLENN: Keith Olbermann has done it. Keith Olbermann has cracked the case. He has righted the ship. He has dealt the Trump administration such a severe gut punch that he can now retire from political commentary, for good.

Here he is. If you didn't know -- if you didn't know, Keith Olbermann actually has a job. He started something with GQ called The Resistance. And here is a piece of the last episode.

KEITH: So now that I think the outcomes that seven different inevitable outcomes are unavoidable, I'd like to go back and enjoy some of my life again, and I'm going to. No illness. No scandal. No firing. Just, I've said what I've had to say. It was as obvious as I made it seem. I give my work everything I can, so it's not like I can dial it back.

And I think even this dim-witted world of American political TV reporting, which is still calculating how to get Trump's idiot supporters to watch their networks and still waiting for Trump to pivot, even it can carry this the rest of the way. So I am retiring from political commentary in all media venues.

GLENN: And the crowd cheers. Apparently, the weight of a seven to ten-minute internet segment for GQ was just too much to carry. He couldn't go on with his life and carry that seven minutes for GQ. I have no idea how he endured such a heavy burden for so long. My God, man. It's been months. How much of a workload can a human body take?

Olbermann and the GQ resistance are apparently declaring victory. This was their version of the George W. Bush "mission accomplished" speech. Whereas Bush delivered his from an aircraft carrier dressed in a flight suit, Olbermann sat pretty in a trendy suit, in front of a perfectly covered GQ backdrop, that I think might have been done possibly by the elevators in the building.

So what's got the resistance so confident that Keith can now retire? Listen.

KEITH: I'm confident now, even more so than I have been throughout the last year, that this nightmare presidency of Donald John Trump will end prematurely and end soon. And I am, thus, also confident that this is the correct moment to end this series.

GLENN: Oh, wow. Now, so what's got him so confident about the president being impeached? Well, is it something -- a new revelation from the Mueller HEP investigation? Sure, he mentions Flynn and Mueller right off the bat. But then he mentions another way Trump could get fired. And then another. And then another one. He goes on to list seven-hare-brained theories ranging anywhere to Russia to obstruction of justice to Pence initiating the 25th Amendment.

So what's the ultimate coup de grâce here? Is it definitely one of the seven possible? Is it one of the above? Or none of the above?

I guess the better question here is what's the real reason for this video? He denies it. But was he actually fired. Maybe Keith is going back to ESPN. I don't know. But like they say on Sports Center or so I'm told, and I think everyone -- you know, I think I can speak for everyone, watch the video. Hey, Olbermann, come on, man!

WATCH: Jan. 6 FALLOUT: Biden's Domestic Terrorism Threat Is YOU

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

'They've taken away the symbol of the American flag': Restaurant owner speaks out after being FINED for flying flags on July 4

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."
