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?

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
