Three Things You Need to Know - January 26, 2018

The Obama/Farrakhan Connection Confirmed

White people are a “race of devils”...“Hitler was a very good man”... Judaism is a “gutter religion.” Who said those statements? Most people, right off the bat, would probably guess David Duke. He probably HAS said very similar things in the past, but that’s not who I’m referring to. These words were spoken by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. He’s absolutely one of the most racist people in America.

If any politician or public figure were caught schmoozing with Farrakhan it would be a big deal, and Barack Obama had been accused of such during the 2008 election. Hillary Clinton even called him out over it during a debate. She said that Farrakhan’s support for Obama needed to be addressed and denounced. Obama basically denied any contact and said that he couldn’t help who supported him. So basically, the exact reasons we rightfully condemned Donald Trump for failing to denounce David Duke’s support of him, AND the exact excuse Trump gave to us.

Yesterday, TalkingPointsMemo.com published a story that featured an interesting photo. There’s Obama, flashing that million dollar smile, with Louis Farrakhan. There’s absolutely NO WAY Obama didn't know who he was taking a picture with. Farrakhan didn’t slide in at the last minute with the mother of all photobombs. Obama knew exactly what he was doing, and palling around with one of the most racist men in America apparently didn't bother him one bit.

So why have we never seen this photo? This quite possibly could have torpedoed Obama’s first run for president. The answer is the media didn’t want this to get out. The photojournalist hid the picture because it would be quote “damaging politically” if it were released. How did the media never follow up on this? Obama and Farrakhan’s contacts was one of the worst kept and dirty secrets in Washington. Despite the rumors, no one pursued this photo.

If the situations would have been reversed - if there was a picture with a white nationalist and John McCain, Mitt Romney, or Donald Trump - this would have been blasted in every newspaper and on every cable news network all over the world. I can’t find it mentioned on any major news outlet this morning. Probably because it’s a glaring reminder that they were both incompetent and also just didn’t care. Every day we’re reminded with more evidence of just how far media has fallen. If it’s not incompetence it’s blatant partisanship. Something has got to change.

Two Minutes to Midnight

We’re all doomed.

Yesterday, The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists – which definitely sounds like a secret society – moved the Doomsday Clock 30 seconds ahead after its annual assessment of the state of the world.

That means it is now just two minutes ‘til midnight on the Doomsday Clock. It hasn’t been two minutes to midnight since 1953.

This is not some knockoff, Casio doomsday clock. This is the official Doomsday Clock, the one you should be freaked out about.

The board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists includes 15 Nobel Prize winners, so they know their way around a doomsday clock. They’ve been setting this thing for 71 years. One of the members said at the press conference, “Today, the danger of some sort of nuclear catastrophe is greater than it was during the Cold War and most people are blissfully unaware of this danger.”

To what does the organization owe its new alarm? “The failure of President Trump and other world leaders to deal with looming threats of nuclear war and climate change.” Ten years ago, the group said climate change is “nearly as dire” as the danger of nuclear weapons. Not quite sure how that can be true, but they’re the atomic scientists.

Trump and climate change – those are the ultimate bogeymen for the Left.

Another doomsday spokesman said the risk of nuclear weapons being used undoubtedly increased last year, which is why they decided to move the clock ahead 30 seconds. But they also said the danger is worse because of humanity’s inaction on climate change.

Reading between the lines, I guess that means the world is getting hotter because of climate change, which puts people in a worse mood, which makes them more likely to launch nuclear weapons?

Okay, maybe I’m being insensitive to the doomsday crowd. Nuclear weapons are no joke. But their argument loses a lot of its punch when you try to put climate change on the same danger level as nuclear weapons.

However, credit to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists – they also listed artificial intelligence among their other concerns. Not that nuclear war isn’t a serious threat, but we need a separate, larger, more urgent clock that counts us down to A.I. taking over the world. That is the doomsday clock we should be watching.

The NFL Just Committed Suicide

This year’s Super Bowl is going to be legendary.

No, not because the Philadelphia Eagles somehow managed to have a fantastic season and make the Championship game, but because I predict that it will be the last Super Bowl EVER.

The NFL is gone after this one.

Why?

Three words: Social. Justice. Committee.

The National Football League has officially established an owner-player "social justice committee" to create a "dialogue" to address issues of race relations.

The committee will "focus on education, economic development, community and police relations and the criminal justice system.”

And they’ve already started a program called “Let’s Listen Together” which will use social media to highlight NFL players working on “equality issues” off the field.

I don’t even care about football and this makes me want to throw up.

And we can all thank Colin Kaepernick for this disgusting mix of politics and sports.

I just don’t see how the NFL can survive this way. There is absolutely no justifiable reason for them to have a social justice committee. Zero.

Everyone involved in the NFL should be there to work on one thing: football. That’s it!

If players want to promote social justice outside of their day jobs, fine whatever. That’s their decision. But don’t make it something that the league has to do.

And frankly, I think the NFL already does a great job of bringing people of all backgrounds together. Football makes people of all walks of life feel connected to each other when they are rooting for their team. Every fan is equal and united when they’re on the bleachers. Just keep doing that and you’ll be a force for good in the world.

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
