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

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
