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

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
