The 'New America' No Longer Cares About Politics on This One Issue

What’s happening?

Over the weekend, a former Hillary Clinton campaign adviser and the RNC finance chair were both in the headlines over allegations of sexual harassment.

Give me the short version:

  • Clinton personally requested that faith adviser Burns Strider be kept on her 2008 presidential campaign despite accusations that he sexually harassed a young subordinate, the New York Times reported. Five years later, he was fired from a pro-Clinton independent group for allegedly harassing a young female aide.
  • Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn stepped down as RNC finance chair after the Wall Street Journal reported that he had been sexually harassing women for “decades” and in some cases, paying out million-dollar settlements.

Glenn’s take:

We seem to be in a brave new world where allegations are enough to take down anyone, regardless of political affiliations. Republican or Democrat; it doesn’t matter. Is that a good thing, or are we hypercorrecting by deciding people are guilty based on accusations?

“Everybody deserves to be heard,” Glenn said. “Everyone deserves to make their case, and then common sense needs to take hold.’

GLENN: In 2018, sexual assault accusations have become a daily, maybe even hourly, occurrence.

This is our new reality.

So, it’s no surprise that over the weekend we learned about allegations against both a Republican and a Democrat.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn resigned as national finance chairman of the Republican National Committee amid dozens of sexual misconduct accusations published by the Wall Street Journal.

The worst of these accusations claims Wynn pressured a married manicurist into sex and then paid her a $7.5 million settlement, according to people familiar with the matter.

Wynn denied all allegations, citing that these accusations are the result of his ex-wife—who is trying to resettle the terms of their divorce.

Burns Strider, on the other hand, does not deny the claims against him.

Strider was the Clinton campaign faith adviser. Female colleagues have complained about him going back to 2007.

He is accused of kissing female peers on the nose or forehead, trying to plan commuting times with them, and sending late night emails that expressed loneliness and poor judgment rather than X-rated material.

Strider’s accusations don’t even begin to approach Steve Wynn level allegations, but nevertheless, people are angry that Hillary Clinton didn’t immediately fire him and that he continues to work in Democratic politics.

Whether you’re Steve Wynn or Burns Strider, in the eyes of the new America—you’re guilty the second someone, anyone, claims you’re guilty. You’re immediately a sexual predator no matter how insignificant or outrageous the accusation may be.

Everyone deserves to be believed, but let’s allow common sense back in our world.

Burns Strider is not Steve Wynn—if, of course, the allegations against Steve Wynn are true.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
