Here’s What You Should Know About ‘Fire and Fury’

In case you missed it

Michael Wolff’s bombshell book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” has dominated headlines and bestseller lists from the moment of its highly anticipated release. In response, President Trump has issued his own flurry of furious tweets and counterattacks, many directed at one of the book’s most salient characters: Steve Bannon.

Why Bannon?

In the book, Wolff describes Bannon as standing for economic nationalism, strong on borders, patriotic, and a global non-interventionist. Sound familiar? Wait, isn’t that describing the candidate millions of Americans voted for last November? Wolff’s book paints a picture of a helpless, incompetent Trump administration, while Bannon comes out looking like the true architect behind ‘Trumpism.’

“It practically feels like 90 percent of this book was ghostwritten by [Bannon,]” said Glenn on the show today. “In true Bannon fashion, all of his enemies are relentlessly made to look like fools, and that’s putting it lightly, they’re dang-near decimated.”

Glenn’s take:

Glenn was back at the chalkboard today to give us the lowdown on Wolff’s political tell-all.

“I tried to count the number of times that Bannon was either mentioned or quoted in this book, but I gave up after two chapters. You’d have an easier time counting the stair steps to the moon. Bannon’s presence and his fingerprints are all over this book from the first chapter until literally the final sentence, which begs the question: Are we really supposed to speculate on the rumors and innuendo in this book and attribute it to the author? Or is this book the narrative of what Steve Bannon wants you to think?”

SO MUCH FOR BUYING ELECTRIC: Mayor Pete wants to tax EVERY mile you drive

It's almost as if they WANT you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible. First, Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, (Mayor) Pete Buttigieg is heading up the Department of Transportation and floated the idea of taxing EVERY mile you drive. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump...

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century." He writes about it in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

Gov. Kristi Noem DEFENDS against claims she’s ‘CAVING’ to NCAA on Title IX

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem had a tense interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week over claims she caved to the NCAA. Rather than signing a bill banning transgender girls and women from competing against biological females in sports, Noem returned it to the legislature for 'style and form' changes, arguing to Carlson the current version 'wouldn't solve the problem.' Noem joins Glenn to defend her decision, saying conservatives must be 'strategic' in the fight to defend Title IX.
