Three Things You Need to Know - January 31, 2018

The Best Night of Trump's Presidency

“Americans are dreamers too.” That was one of the many great lines and moments from last night’s state of the union speech. It just might have been the most powerful night of President Trump’s political career.

It’s not every day that a political event can move you to tears, but it happened - not once - BUT THREE TIMES LAST NIGHT. Trump, rather than go all hellfire and brimstone on his more controversial topics, breathed humanity into political issues through three powerful stories. A family that had lost two daughters to MS 13 gang violence stood while the President told their story. The parents of Otto Warmbier stood sobbing while the entire building erupted in applause. A North Korean defector stood and triumphantly raised his crutches as the emotion swelled.

It was a powerful night, but maybe the most effective thing to happen for Republicans didn’t have anything to do with what the President actually said. Did the Democrats know that this speech was being televised? Did they know the entire country was watching them as they sat and refused to applaud issues that 99% of the country can all rally behind? Nancy Pelosi’s scowl was so intense, she’s lucky she didn't sprain a face muscle trying to hold it.

Democrats frowned and sat for: bonuses for employees, In God We Trust, the National Anthem, Jerusalem, and higher wages. The Congressional Black Caucus actually remained seated when it was announced that African American unemployment is the lowest it’s ever been… IN HISTORY. I mean, I don’t know, seems kind of like a big deal.

Many American Democrats care deeply about immigration issues. Trump just offered amnesty for 1.8 million illegal aliens! That nearly triples what Obama offered. Did the Democratic leadership show their approval for this obvious big win? Nope. I think Pelosi’s scowl got even colder. At one point, Luis Gutierrez actually stood up and stormed out of the room. Why? The chants of USA USA seemed to offend him.

The truth is, Democrats aren’t happy with Trump’s amnesty because THEY’RE not the ones delivering it. The only thing they’re concerned with is protecting their political racket.

If there was ever an opportunity to at least APPEAR to be bipartisan, this was it. Wittingly or not, Democrats showed the country their true colors last night. So by all means, keep sitting down.

The Out of Touch Democratic Response

White. Wealthy. Privileged.

That’s Joe Kennedy in three words.

To choose someone who so perfectly embodies those adjectives to deliver the Democratic response last night revealed that the left is wildly out of touch with reality.

Democrats continue to claim they are the party of diversity and the poor, but last night they showed the world how they really think of themselves.

It’s no surprise that Joe, the grandson of Robert Kennedy, was hand-picked by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi: two white, wealthy, and privileged people desperately clinging to the fading glory days of the Democratic party.

They are so blinded by their perception of the past that they refuse to address the Kennedy family history of deception, infidelity, sexual misconduct, and murder.

How is it that they thought it was ok to put a Kennedy on a pedestal during the MeToo Movement?

Does no one remember what Ted Kennedy did to Mary Jo Kopechne?

Does no one remember that he left her to die to cover up for his indiscretions and that his family helped him?

Mary Jo Kopechne was a former secretary of Joe Kennedy’s grandfather. Does he remember her?

Democrats, you are being left behind. If Trump’s election didn’t send a clear message that the American people are done with political dynasties, I don’t know what will.

You need to let go of the past. It wasn’t that great to begin with.

It's Probably Not a good Idea to Make a List of Jewish Enemies

Here’s a good general life tip – don’t make a list of Jewish enemies, or any other list based on ethnicity. Just a bad idea.

Yesterday, former Congressional candidate Paul Nehlen – the guy who lost overwhelmingly to Paul Ryan in the 2016 Wisconsin Republican primary – blamed Jews for attacking his “America First” positions. He used Twitter to post a spreadsheet of names, including whether the person is Jewish. He claims to have received 81 personal attacks on Twitter in the last month, which is shocking because everyone knows personal attacks never happen on Twitter.

Of those 81 Twitter attackers, he says 74 are Jewish, which can only mean one thing – a vast Jewish conspiracy to ruin the popularity Nehlen thinks he has.

Or it could be the fact that Nehlen hates Jews. By the way, Nehlen’s research sucks, as it turns out several people on his list aren’t actually Jewish.

He also posted charts with photos of people who work at CNN, NBC, New York Times, NPR, and Fox News, complete with Stars of David on the photos. He said Twitter made him delete those photos. So, Nehlen is also trying to portray himself as a victim of censorship and oppression.

There has always been people like Nehlen. The difference is now they have the megaphone of social media. So why engage with a guy like this? He’s spewing hate and people just can’t take it, so they want to fight back. But you can’t win an argument with a guy like him. Pointing out that he sounds just like a 1930s Nazi isn’t going to suddenly make Nehlen say, “Huh, you know, they’re right. I do sound like a Nazi. Maybe I should reevaluate my belief about Jews.”

Nehlen is a flame-out politician grasping for anything to help keep him afloat as he aims for Ryan’s House seat again this year. Helping him trend on Twitter just throws him a life preserver.

Nehlen is a former darling of Steve Bannon and Breitbart. He’s part of the whole psycho, alt-right, white nationalist fringe that guys like Bannon have been trying to bring under the wing of the Republican Party. These guys are crackpots, but the Left would love America to think those crackpots are part of mainstream conservatism.

The Republican Party cannot run fast enough from Paul Nehlen and the alt-right.

MORE 3 THINGS

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
