Three Things You Need to Know – February 2, 2018

Is this the great Crypto-Crash of 2018?

Is this the start of the Great Crypto-Crash of 2018? All of the high value crypto-currencies have seen double digit percentage losses in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin has lost 2 thousand dollars since yesterday. That’s a total market value of 120 billion.

So what’s going on? The biggest theory right now is that futures traders are beginning to get worried about Asia launching a massive regulatory crackdown. It’s starting in Asia, but governments all over the world are looking to not only just regulate, but possibly even launch their own state cryptocurrency. South Korea and Russia have been the two most recent countries to mention plans on crypto regulation.

We knew this was coming eventually. The question now is whether cryptos like Bitcoin will be able to endure this bloodbath and recover. As Chancellor Palpatine said to Anakin Skywalker, “All those who gain power are afraid to lose it.” It’s not just losing the power, but the fear of who or what will replace them. Look at what cryptocurrency provides. It can’t be hacked, you’ll never wake up and find that someone stole your identity and emptied your bank account. Also, and this is the ultimate reason governments hate it, cryptos are not subject to a central bank. They can’t be manipulated.

It’s for these reasons that I think cryptocurrency will ultimately not only survive but rebound with a vengeance. The blockchain technology the powers crypto is going to revolutionize hundreds of industries, not just currency. The governments of the world will try and fight it, but I think - in the end - they’ll fail. We’re standing in the doorway of a technological revolution. Bitcoin is a small part of it. The transition period we’re going through will be painful, but EVERYTHING is about to change.

The gender-neutralization of 'O Cananda'

If progressivism is a disease, Canada is terminally ill with it. The U.S. prognosis is probably critical condition.

On Wednesday, Canada’s Senate approved changing a line in the English version of their national anthem, “O Canada,” to make it gender neutral. The second line of the anthem will now be “True patriot love in all of us command” rather than the oppressive, insanely offensive old version, “True patriot love in all thy sons command.”

Now that their anthem isn’t sexist anymore, Canadians can finally feel free to sing it again.

Somehow, I doubt the Canadian senators checked with the people because that’s not how progressives operate. I bet most Canadians would’ve preferred leaving the anthem alone. They’ve had the song that way for over a century and no one died of sexism because of it.

Canadian feminist author Margaret Atwood was one of the people behind this effort. She wrote the novel The Handmaid’s Tale. You can look that one up for insight into her feelings on tradition, faith, and conservatism. She’s real subtle.

This is the dark side of progressivism everywhere – it presumes to know what’s best for the people. But it’s always the agenda of a few, forced on the majority. Or sometimes the agenda, or feelings of just one individual. Progressivism thinks it is promoting more freedom, when often it is tyranny. So, you get things like Michelle Obama dictating to your local school what cafeteria food it can serve. Or one mother in Webster Parish, Louisiana who recently got student-led prayer banned at her daughter’s high school.

Respect for tradition as a stabilizing, enriching agent in society is one of the key diverging points of the Left and Right in the U.S. Decades of progressivism chipping away at things like religion, the flag, the Constitution, and patriotism in general, all the way to Obama’s apologizing tour of a presidency, has created an enormous backlash from heartland Americans. To the point that a whole section of Trump’s State of the Union speech was a lecture on respecting the flag, anthem, and motto. It’s just sad that we’ve sunk so low that the State of the Union has turned into a pep rally about who has more team spirit.

It’s easy to laugh at those Canadians for wimping out on their anthem. But progressivism is a persistent disease, so don’t think it can’t happen here.

You can hate Tom Brady because he's perfect, but not for this

It’s a kiss that made headlines this week…for all the wrong reasons.

The media is in a frenzy over a kiss between Tom Brady and his son.

In the documentary, “Tom vs. Time,” there is a scene showing his 11-year-old son asking Brady if he can check his Fantasy Football standings.

Brady replies, “What do I get?” and his son give him a quick kiss on the mouth. Brady complains “that was like a peck” and his son gives him another slightly longer kiss.

And the universe erupted in outrage.

People are criticizing Brady for the interaction—saying the kiss was “disturbing” and “uncomfortably long.”

Seriously?!

As a society, I think we have completely gone over the edge.

All I see here is a man who clearly loves his kids—the way any parent should.

By all accounts, Tom Brady appears to be a caring and attentive father; That’s the real shocker considering his insane fame and wealth.

Parenting styles are different and Tom Brady shouldn’t be shamed for expressing his completely normal affection for his children.

So, please media, stop trying to foolishly and desperately suggest that Tom Brady could be an incestual, homosexual pedophile.

Look, we all hate him because he’s perfect.

Let’s try to put jealousy aside and just enjoy the big game this weekend.

Plus, Brady has a 50/50 chance of losing—so hope for that instead of your ridiculous sexual predator narrative.

MORE 3 THINGS

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!"
