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

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
