Three Things You Need to Know - December 1, 2017

The Verdict Is In for Kate Steinle's Killer

Kate Steinle’s murderer has been declared not guilty. The multiple felon and five time deportee killed the 32 year old woman over two years ago, but her family will never see justice for it.

The California state government has made a complete mockery of the justice system on MULTIPLE levels. Answer me this San Francisco… and help me out here because I just can’t wrap my brain around this: How can a man fire a gun into a group of people, kill a woman, then throw the murder weapon into the ocean, get caught fleeing the scene, then get off scot free?

What the hell was the prosecution doing during this case? The killer admitted he fired the gun. The only case the defense had was that this was an accident. The old Comey/Hillary Clinton defense of “no ill intent… no harm no foul.” I’m sorry but that’s not good enough. At the VERY LEAST they could have gotten the killer on involuntary manslaughter. Did the prosecution not care or were they really that incompetent?

If you live in these Sanctuary Cities in California, how can you ever feel safe? You’re already mostly forbidden from protecting yourself. The gun laws are among the strictest in the country. But not only that, the government of California has now shown that they can’t protect you either. ICE has declared they’ll deport this murderer yet again, but we all know that won’t actually matter. He’ll come right back, and the state of California not only won’t do a thing about it but they’ll welcome him with open arms.

The killer didn’t get off completely unscathed. They did actually nail him for something. It wasn’t murder, it wasn’t manslaughter, it wasn’t illegally being in the country. The new crime on his wrap sheet is… illegal possession of a firearm. If that doesn’t say it all, I don’t know what does. For the leftists, blaming the criminal always runs second to the gun. The killer is innocent and the gun is guilty.

One final question for the justice system in California. If the shooter would have been a white person and the victim an immigrant… legal or illegal. Would you have shown the same mercy?

Trump's Week That Might Have Been

Why won’t President Trump get out of his own way?

This week there was positive economic news that most past presidents would have shouted from the rooftops. Like the fact that the U.S. economy has exceeded its potential output for the first time in a decade.

The third quarter of 2017 is the strongest in three years. Yesterday, the Dow closed above 24,000 – an all-time record. And how about this one – the unemployment rate is the lowest in 17 years.

Those are things that really resonate with people.

The Republican tax reform bill is also inching its way through Congress this week. It’s looking more likely to pass, which would be a much-needed win for the President – his only significant legislative accomplishment of the year.

This should have been a slower week of positive vibes and fluff pieces on the White House Christmas decorations that were unveiled Monday. Instead, Trump hijacked any good press he might have enjoyed, mainly through Twitter: he said Time magazine called to say he was probably going to be named Man of the Year for the second year in a row (which Time denied); he said we should have a fake news competition for the TV networks with a trophy prize; he shared anti-Muslim videos from a racist British group, infuriating Prime Minister Theresa May; and for good measure, he implied Joe Scarborough should be investigated for murder.

All that drama was on top of his “Pocahontas” comment fiasco at an event to honor Navajo World War II veterans.

Trump seems to want positive media coverage about him, yet he feeds the media constant negative fodder with his tweets.

Here’s a strategy the president hasn’t tried – total Twitter silence, for at least a week, maybe two. If he wouldn’t give the media wacky things to be distracted with, surely they’d be forced to find something else to talk about. In theory. At this point, he has set such a precedent with his tweets that the stories would probably be all about why the president isn’t tweeting.

Michigan AG Vows to Not 'Sexually Harrass Her Staff'

Michigan Attorney General Candidate Dana Nessel wants you to know something.

She does not have a penis.

Dana does have a point. It’s not anatomically possible for her to do a lot of the things the Weinstein’s and Conyers of the world are alleged to have done. That’s a promise she can absolutely keep to her constituents.

But as we saw with the Presidential election of 2016, running solely on gender doesn’t really work.

Plus, it’s unfair and sexist to imply that there is a risk of a potted plant or bathrobe incident if any man holds a position of power simply because he is a man.

All of the allegations about sexual misconduct are throwing a much-needed light on that fact that our societal ideas about manhood have been completely decimated.

We must remember that REAL men don’t do this kind of crap.

They don’t get their confidence or ego from asking women to look at or touch their junk.

Real men elevate their coworkers and acquaintances, regardless of gender, to be their best self.

It might not seem like it right now with two months of nonstop allegations coming out every day, but there are good men out there who don’t keep bags of sex toys at the office. Those men do exist and guess what? They are the majority.

MORE 3 THINGS

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
