Three Things You Need to Know - January 24, 2018

Vetting Fauxcahontas

Elizabeth Warren has a problem.

As 2020 approaches, the Democrats are trying to solve the mystery of her Native American heritage.

All her life, Warren has listed herself as Native American. She claimed she was a “minority” in the legal directory of the Association of American Law Schools.

She is listed as Native American in federal forms at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania.

She even contributed to the Native American cookbook “Pow Wow Chow” and listed her name as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee.”

But for some reason, Warren has not officially reported her Native American ethnicity to the Senate’s historian office.

And that reason is apparent to every person on planet Earth.

Elizabeth Warren isn’t really Native American.

She is the whitest white woman ever.

She claims family ties to Oklahoma going back to before it was a state, but that doesn’t mean she’s part Indian.

Warren says she grew up hearing tales from her mother’s side of the family that they had Cherokee and Delaware blood in them.

A thorough examination by genealogists has proved otherwise.

They poured over her family’s birth, marriage, and death records and could not find any conclusive proof of Native American ancestry.

Oopsie.

But does Elizabeth Warren lying about her heritage really matter to people anymore?

Can’t she simply get away with “self-identifying” as Native American? It seems like everyone else on Earth can claim they are something they’re not and we’ll go along with it, so why can’t she?

Or do we still value authenticity in a person?

I think we do, or else the democrats wouldn’t be so worried about her unsubstantiated Native American claims.

And that’s actually a really good sign.

The Oscar for Best Hypocritical Film goes to...

Call Me By Your Name is probably the most hypocritical movie ever nominated for Best Picture. And that’s no easy feat for Hollywood.

If you haven’t heard of this movie, you’re in good company because most of America hasn’t either. That’s what Hollywood hopes to change by nominating it for Best Picture yesterday.

Call Me By Your Name is a new-fashioned romantic weepy about a 17-year-old boy who is seduced by, and has a sexual relationship with, an older man who spends the summer with the boy’s family in Italy.

Critics are contractually obligated to love this movie. The LA Times calls it, “Ravishing filmmaking and piercing wisdom.”

Huffington Post says of the actors who play the lovers, “some of the richest chemistry I’ve ever witnessed in a movie. It’s sublime.”

Esquire says this movie has, “Some of the most emotional moments in film history.”

There are two major problems here. First, the plot romanticizes what would qualify as statutory rape in most of the U.S. But the movie is set in Italy, so I guess that makes it okay.

Besides that, just a few months after the #MeToo movement began, followed by the Roy Moore accusations, and the end of Kevin Spacey’s career, Hollywood is celebrating a story about an older man seducing a teenage boy. Yet, Hollywood literally deleted Kevin Spacey from the movie business because he seduced teenage boys.

We can generalize about the Hollywood community here because the whole Academy votes for Best Picture nominees, not just a small committee. Hollywood is not only excusing a movie about sex between an adult and a teenager, but praising it.

As a business community and a cultural force in this country, Hollywood has zero credibility. How do you type your hashtags and wear your black protest dresses and then nominate The Kevin Spacey Story for best picture?

Here’s the thing Hollywood – you can’t have your cake and eat it too. If #MeToo and #Time’s Up are really more than slogans or a fad to you, then you must prove it through your choices. Who you choose to work with. Your story content. And the movies you nominate for awards.

Right now, all we see is #Hypocrisy.

Reporting Live from Pyongyang

NBC News has been given rare access inside North Korea. A mainstream news outlet with a high profile anchor will FINALLY be able to show the truth about life inside the Hermit Kingdom. Let’s take a look at what they’re exposing:

Seriously? You get rare access into one of the most secretive countries on the planet, and you come back with a report on the “modern” ski resort and how beautifully colored the city is?

Is it beyond journalistic prowess to point out that you’re basically the ONLY person standing in that beautifully colored city? Maybe mention that you’re only allowed to go where your GUARDS ALLOW you to go. You know, anything at all that might actually expose the reality rather than regurgitating state narrative.

If you’re not willing to tell the truth, why even go and report on anything at all? At what point does your work become pure propaganda for a ruthless dictator? I mean, if there’s no follow up to this piece, all you’ve accomplished with this report is allow yourself to be used. Was it worth trading this “rare access” for your credibility?

Doing a stand up in North Korea must have sounded cool, but if NBC was that terrified of offending Kim Jong Un by doing their ACTUAL jobs, why didn’t they just stand Lester Holt in front of a green screen with some cool looking BRoll? At least then it wouldn’t have looked like the North Korean propaganda minister wasn’t directing their broadcast.

In 1944, Kurt Gerron was commissioned by the Nazis to fool the world into thinking that a concentration camp was actually a Jewish paradise. The movie he made was called The Fuhrer Gives a City to the Jews. It showed Jews laughing, playing and enjoying life, but when the cameras weren’t rolling they were all being tortured, murdered and shipped off to Auschwitz.

This NBC News report is dangerously close to Gerron’s movie. Evil exists when good men do nothing. Darkness reigns when people, and especially the media, fail to speak up.

MORE 3 THINGS

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
