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.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
