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

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
