Three Things You Need to Know - December 6, 2017

Recognizing Jerusalem

When is your capital, not really your capital?

If you’re the nation of Israel this isn’t a ridiculous question.

Even though their capital is Jerusalem, most of the world just acts like it’s not. Why? Well, we wouldn’t want to make terrorists angry, would we?

Today President Trump is expected to announce his decision about whether or not to keep the American Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Trump’s intention is to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and relocate the embassy there.

Logistically, it’s a move that makes sense. It's also conveniently the truth. Now, symbolically, it’s going to piss off a bunch of terrorists who hate the Jews. But, guess what? We don’t base our policy on the wishes of terrorists that hate Jews. Or at least, we don’t anymore.

I’m glad Trump is finally standing up to the decades of bullying.

By recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the United States is sending a clear message that threats of violence by the Palestinians and others in this area will no longer be tolerated.

It’s also sending the message that official US policy should not be ignored.

Let’s go back to a time when Bill Clinton was in office for a second.

In 1995, Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act that required the American embassy to relocate from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Let me say that again * REQUIRED * the embassy to relocate to Jerusalem. In that act, it states that Jerusalem should be undivided and recognized as the capital of Israel.

Oh, and just a side note, that act passed 93-5 in the Senate and 374-37 in the House. The move can only be canceled if we overtly stop it every 6 months. And we’ve done just that, every 6 months, for 22 years.

It’s a law that is 22 years late in being enacted. It’s embarrassing that it has taken this long and it's a slap in the face to our trusted ally.

It needed to be implemented then, and should certainly be implemented now.

If Trump actually follows through on this, it’s a brave move that he deserves a lot of credit for.

And if he does, Israel will finally be able to let everyone know that their capital is really their capital.

Russia Banned From the Olympics

Each night during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Dr. R waited for delivery of the list. The list contained names of Russian athletes so elite and on top of their sport, that they had to cheat by taking steroids.

Just after midnight, a secret signal told Dr. R it was time to go to Room 124, the secret room built by the Russians attached to Room 125 – the gold room. Not where the Olympic gold medals were stored. This room held liquid gold. This was the Olympics’ urine sample lab.

Once Dr. R was in place, another Russian official in the gold room passed urine samples through a secret hole in the wall. He had to have good aim, but once he calibrated, a steady stream of urine – samples mind you – flowed through the hole in the wall to Dr. R. Then, because these were special, Swiss-engineered urine sample bottles, Dr. R passed them to a Russian F.S.B. agent who wizzed – I mean, whisked them to a secret building nearby where the tamper-proof bottle caps were completely tampered with.

A few hours later, the bottles were returned to Dr. R, with the caps magically loosened. Now Dr. R got to work, emptying the bottles, cleaning them, and replacing them with non-steroid urine. Then the bottles were slipped back through the hole in the wall to Room 125, and voila, Vladimir Putin got to have his cake and eat it too – hosting the Olympics and winning 33 medals – a third of which were won by Russian athletes who were part of the government’s elaborate doping program.

It was all fun and games, until two whistle-blowers – one of whom was Dr. R – blew the tamper-proof lid off Russia’s doping scheme. Yesterday, for the first time in its history, the International Olympic Committee banned Russia from participating in the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Vladimir Putin says this is just a U.S. conspiracy in retaliation for alleged Russian interference in our presidential election last year. Yeah, I don’t think America cares that much about the Winter Olympics, but nice thought.

If I were the International Olympic Committee members, I’d look into joining the witness protection program, like Dr. R already has. He is currently living in an undisclosed location in the U.S.

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up. Russia can. But you can’t.

Time Person of the Year

Time just announced their Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers.

It sounds like a band name for a boy band, but I digress.

The Silence Breakers are the men and women who have finally come forward to talk about the sexual misconduct or assault they experienced at the hands of powerful people.

By speaking up about their assaults at the hands of Harvey Weinstein and others like him, Time claims that these victims have humbled and humanized Hollywood. They write, “Movie stars are supposedly nothing like you and me. They're svelte, glamorous, self-­possessed. They wear dresses we can't afford and live in houses we can only dream of. Yet it turns out that—in the most painful and personal ways—movie stars are more like you and me than we ever knew.”

It's a fitting homage by Time given the past three months of nonstop allegations. But I have one problem with it.

Juanita Broderick and Paula Jones are never mentioned by name in Time’s article.

Does that mean you’re only a silence breaker only if you claimed sexual assault in the past three months?

Woman have been speaking out for years against the powerful people who have abused them. It’s only now that we’re actually believing them.

There are many lessons to be learned from the Silence Breakers.

You are not alone. Even movie stars experience the ugly parts of life. Don’t be afraid to speak out.

If you experience assault of any kind, there is no shame in going to the Police immediately. It’s the most powerful thing you can do.

And as we’ve seen recently, the court of public opinion is a very dangerous place. An allegation doesn’t immediately make you guilty. Let’s continue to hold up due process and ensure justice prevails for everyone.

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:


Glenn and Justin’s new book, ‘The Great Reset: Joe Biden And The Rise Of 21st Century Fascism’ is available to order now.
