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.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
