Three Things You Need to Know – February 28, 2018

Bringing a Gun to a Knife Fight

Dave watched from his window as his neighbors argued.

Expletives ripped through his thin apartment walls.

The fight escalated quickly.

Punches were thrown. Fists were flying.

Dave caught a glimmer of silver out of the corner of his eye.

One of the men had a knife and was about to use it.

Dave rushed to his bedroom and opened the bottom drawer, made his choice, and calmly walked outside.

Dave approached the men and just stood there.

His presence immediately caused the two men to forget all about their fight.

The knife-wielding man attempted to flee the scene but was caught by police moments later.

The other neighbor was rushed to the hospital for his stab wounds and is expected to make a full recovery.

All because Dave brought a gun to a knife fight.

As a certified firearms instructor, Dave had a collection of guns to choose from—but he grabbed his AR-15 because it’s just a bigger gun.

He believes that the “intimidation factor definitely played a part in stopping the fight.”

No shots were fired. That was never Dave’s intention.

He said, “The AR-15 is my weapon of choice for home protection. It's light, it's maneuverable. If you train and know how to use it properly, it's not dangerous. And this is just a perfect example of good guy with an AR-15 stopped a bad guy with a knife. And there were no lives taken, so, all in all, it was a good day."

Dave saved a life that day because he is a responsible gun owner.

There are people like Dave all over the country.

Let’s remember that the good guys with guns are the majority.

Michael Wolff Does Europe

Remember Michael Wolff? The “journalist” who hung out in the lobby of the White House until he gathered enough dirt to write “Fire and Fury”?

He’s been on an international tour to promote his book and, well, things haven’t gone quite as smoothly for him as they did here in the U.S.

During an interview with an Australian TV news show, Wolff was asked about his recent comment to Bill Maher, saying he was “absolutely sure” that President Trump is currently having an affair. Wolff was doing the interview from London and he suddenly claimed he couldn’t hear the Australian interviewer’s question because something was wrong with his audio connection. Oddly, he heard everything clearly up to that point of the interview. Later, the Australian news show posted footage from their London studio showing there were no audio problems.

When Wolff was on Bill Maher’s show, he encouraged the audience to “read between the lines” of a passage in Fire and Fury, where he includes suggestive language about Trump and U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley. When a British TV interviewer tried to clarify Wolff’s innuendo about Trump, Haley, and other possible affairs, Wolff said, “I assume. I assume because this is Donald Trump and I think that’s an absolutely fair assumption.”

I’m pretty sure that’s the first thing they teach in journalism school – do not assume anything. Even when it involves Donald Trump. Wolff stands by his own journalism though, saying there’s “no difference” between the journalism in Fire and Fury and books by Bob Woodward.

What is Michael Wolff hoping to accomplish here, besides racking up book sales?

After a rough few days of being asked uncomfortable questions by European journalists, Wolff has had enough of the heat. He canceled a BBC interview yesterday, saying, “the tour has taken its toll.”

You know what else is taking its toll? Assumptions, by the Left and the Right, about each other. We’ve pulled up the anchor of reason and we’re sailing straight into the choppy waters of accusation and innuendo. We’re more capable than this. We must stop assuming the worst about each other. We must work to fix reason back firmly in her seat. Yes, question with boldness, but pursue truth, instead of just a win for your team. We need a lot less Fire and Fury, and a lot more Honor and Humility.

Jared Kushner's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Jared Kushner and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Tuesday was not kind to the President’s son in law. Kushner must have felt as if he was living out in real time the day made famous in the popular Judith Viorst children’s book. Where as Alexander “went to sleep with gum in his mouth and woke up with gum in his hair,” Kushner went to sleep with a Top Secret clearance and woke up with it downgraded to Secret. That’s a pretty big deal considering he’s been tasked with “bringing peace to the Middle East” and reworking trade deals. Essentially this means that most of his high level work will now have to be put on hold.

But Kushner’s day was only just beginning to turn sour. Media reports began coming in stating that officials from four different countries had discussed ways that Jared Kushner might be manipulated. Sources told the Washington Post that these “ways of manipulation” included taking advantage of Kushner’s complex business arrangements and his family debt.

Ok, so that sounds bad. But let’s pump the brakes for a second. First of all, Kushner may STILL eventually get a Top Secret Clearance. He’s just been downgraded to Secret in the meantime. The process to obtain a Top Secret clearance can be quick or extremely long depending on how much information the investigators have to go through. The top two things that tie up a Top Secret clearance are: Meetings with foreign nationals and financial debt. Kushner has a lot of both. For anyone waving the “You see! He’s guilty!” flag, just remember that this process is normal. Waiting over a year for a Top Secret SCI clearance is not uncommon at all.

Secondly, I’m having a hard time understanding why the Washington Post ran their story that 4 countries had discussed ways that they might be able to manipulate the President’s son in law. Wait, do you mean to tell me that rival nations actually looked for ways to gain leverage over a member of the President's staff? NO WAY. I wish you could see my shocked face. This has probably happened in every presidential administration since 1776. This is not a story. Now IF, and only IF, those four countries actually tried to, or were successful, in manipulating Kushner would this be a story. But it just says they talked about it. Are you kidding me with this?

The only purpose of this story was to pile something on to the bad news of Kushner’s clearance being downgraded. It’s an irresponsible trick to manipulate people into drawing false conclusions, and it’s also a prime example for why so many people have had enough with the media. Can we stop inventing scandals? Is that too much to ask?

We may find out, eventually, that Kushner has some serious issues. I don’t know. But I know we can all empathize with his day yesterday. We’ve all had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

MORE 3 THINGS

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.
