Three Things You Need to Know – February 8, 2018

Nazi About to Win GOP Nomination

The Republican Party must do more to distance itself from the alt-right. If it doesn’t, people like Congressional candidate Arthur Jones of Illinois are going to create some big headaches. Actually, Jones already is.

On Tuesday, the Chicago Sun Times headline read, “Holocaust denier poised to claim GOP nomination in Illinois race for Congress.”

Or this from Huffington Post: “An Actual Nazi is About to be the Only GOP Candidate in a Congressional Race.”

What do these headlines alone seem to be saying? Those Republican bigots – now they’re actually running Nazis for Congress!

It’s not that the headlines aren’t true. Seventy-year-old Arthur Jones is in fact a Nazi. He’s the former head of the American Nazi Party and now heads a group called the America First Committee. He has a section of his website claiming the Holocaust is a lie. However, the headlines are misleading because the Illinois Republican Party is not associating with Jones in any way. They issued a statement saying, “The Illinois Republican Party and our country have no place for Nazis like Arthur Jones. We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office."

The headache for Republicans is that no one has stepped up to run against Jones in the Republican primary for Illinois’ Third Congressional District. Jones has tried and failed five times before to win the nomination. Now he’s about to become the Republican nominee by default.

Jones doesn’t have any Republican challengers because no Republican has won the House seat from this Democrat-dominated district since 1975. But media coverage heading into the mid-term elections won’t reflect the nuances of this particular situation. Arthur Jones is about to gift the media nine months of Republican-bashing stories about how the evil GOP nominates Nazis.

Arthur Jones is an unashamed racist and Nazi who says he regrets voting for Trump because Trump has “surrounded himself with hordes of Jews.” Anyone with an ounce of common sense can easily see that this guy’s a nobody and a nut-job. But in our current climate, the left-wing media will have a field day tying Jones’ Nazi credentials to Republicans. Republicans better wake up and get ahead of this P.R. nightmare.

And for goodness sake, find a Republican to challenge this guy. It’ll be easy – all you have to do is run on an anti-Nazi platform.

The New Budget Deal

The National debt is over 20 trillion and rising. Now, see if this sounds fiscally responsible. Our annual GDP is 19 trillion, and the fiscal year budget is 4 trillion. That means we’re spending a quarter of the cash we bring in every year. For those of you that are small business owners, would your company survive that wasteful spending? Of course it wouldn’t.

The math simple. It’s the same for you and it’s the same for the United States government, but apparently Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer learned math on Common Core. Yesterday they agreed not to cut this out of control spending, BUT TO INCREASE IT BY 300 BILLION. If approved by the House, the budget would be locked in until 2020.

There’s not even an appearance anymore of anyone in the Senate even trying to APPEAR fiscally conservative. I’m curious, did the Senate Republican leadership all eat a Tide Pod? Is there some new virus that induces high fever and turns conservatives into liberals? This is money that we don’t have, will then have to borrow, and have no plan on paying back. But that sure didn’t stop Mitch McConnell from handing Democrats concession after concession like he was Oprah giving away free cars. You want that program funded? YOU GET A BILLION! Oh, you want that done too? YOU GET A BILLION!

The last time I checked, Republicans controlled every branch of government, so why are they acting like they’re playing this game with less players on the field? If this is the new norm, how bad is it going to get if Democrats take both the House AND Senate after the midterms?

The deal now goes to the House, and if something doesn’t happen to stop this thing we’re in for a dangerous downward spiral of spending that probably won’t ever stop. All eyes are on you Freedom Caucus. You might be our last and only hope. You might be the only remaining conservatives left on Capitol Hill.

Congratulations America. Last year you historically voted for Republicans in the House, Senate AND the Executive. With the inclusion of Amnesty, and now this dumpster fire of a budget, all we’re getting in return is a Republican majority with Democrat policies.

The Importance of the New Gerber Baby

140,000 photos of smiling babies.

All of them beautiful and full of wonder.

All of them unknowingly competing in a cut-throat contest to be the cutest.

Cortney didn’t think her son Lucas had a chance, but she submitted his picture anyway.

It took her five seconds to post his photo along with the contest hashtag.

And then she forgot about it.

A couple weeks later, a letter arrived in the mail informing Cortney and her husband Jason that Lucas had been chosen as Gerber’s Spokesbaby for 2018.

Not only had Lucas won the coveted position and $50,000, he also made history.

Lucas is the first child with Down Syndrome to become a Gerber baby.

The CEO of Gerber explained that “Lucas’ winning smile and joyful expression won our hearts this year, and we are all thrilled to name him our 2018 Spokesbaby.”

Bravo, Gerber. You have given me hope that humanity and compassion is still alive.

Gerber’s decision to recognize Lucas for who he is—a human being deserving of love, care, and a future—flies in stark contrast to how Iceland and the Netherlands treat people born with Down Syndrome.

Today, 100% of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted in Iceland.

The Dutch National Institute for Public Health calculated the cost of caring for what they callously call “a Downer” and publicly shamed a man with Down Syndrome on video because his life costs them almost 10 times the amount of someone without Down Syndrome.

Iceland and the Netherlands, you will be on the wrong side of history. My heart is filled with joy today for Lucas and his parents. Congratulations. I look forward to seeing a lot more of Lucas’ smiling face and bow tie collection this year.

MORE 3 THINGS

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
