Rep. John Conyers Accused of Groping Former Staffer

What happened?

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the longest-serving member in the House of Representatives, is still in the hot seat and under fire from another alleged victim. He agreed to step down as the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee after a BuzzFeed report revealed that he had settled with a former employee who said he propositioned her and then fired her when she refused his advances.

What’s the latest news?

Former staffer Deanna Maher, 77, said Conyers touched her inappropriately in at least three different incidents while she served as his deputy chief of staff from 1997 to 2005. She said she decided to come forward as part of the ethics investigation into Conyers’ behavior.

“There are so many victims that passed through Conyers, and he was so cruel,” Maher said in a statement reported by ABC News. “Everyone knew what was going on, but no one did anything.”

So many allegations …

Are you as overwhelmed as we are? On today’s show, Pat and Stu talked about Conyers and the flood of sexual harassment allegations against powerful figures that started with Harvey Weinstein. It’s difficult to keep up at this point.

“Strange stuff,” Pat said of Conyers. “He’s 88 years old!”

GLENN: Another day, another 335 people accused of sexual harassment. Might be on the low side. I'm just kind of guestimating.

STU: Well, it was 335 when you.

PAT: Obviously Matt Lauer fired today from The Today Show of sexual assault of some sort. Apparently, this stems from an incident in Rio when they were covering the Olympics. It's just coming to light now. Also, John Conyers has more accusers. And Cokie Roberts, who she is a reporter, she says it's pretty much common knowledge among reporters that he does this, that he's just a sexual -- a serial sexual harasser. Fascinating.

And another staffer -- another female staffer of his said, yeah, pretty much everyone has seen him in his underwear. The guy always strips down to his underwear. Invites women in. Walks around the office.

Strange stuff. He's 88 years old.

STU: Yeah. I don't even want to think about him having like underwear.

PAT: No.

STU: I think -- I would rather think of --

PAT: You don't want John Conyers and underwear in the same sentence.

STU: Just think of him fully clothed if you're going to think of him at all.

PAT: So, wow, that snowball continues to roll down the hill and gathers steam. Who knows where that will end?

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
