FBI Deputy Director cries victim in aftermath of his termination for lying under oath

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired over the weekend. He was set to receive top-tier retirement benefits by officially retiring on Sunday, but the ax came down just hours before.

Now, before I share with you McCabe’s official response, I think it’s beneficial to clarify the difference between a victim and someone who’s guilty of something. If someone robs a gas station, do we penalize the worker that just got robbed, or do we penalize the guy wearing the ski mask saying, “Your money or your life?” It’s pretty simple, but both McCabe and the media can’t seem to get this one right.

Here’s McCabe’s official response:

Here is the reality: I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey. The OIG's focus on me and this report became a part of an unprecedented effort by the Administration, driven by the President himself, to remove me from my position, destroy my reputation, and possibly strip me of a pension that I worked 21 years to earn.

Oh my goodness! He’s such a victim! The Department of Justice Inspector General is clearly a Trumpian stooge helping the President wage a war on the FBI. Trump’s hiding his collusion! Let’s get him!! That’s the only explanation here, right?

Well, hang on a second. First of all, McCabe isn’t the victim here. The Inspector General found evidence McCabe was leaking information to the press AND THEN he lied about it UNDER OATH. The OIG then contacted the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility, which is basically just a really fancy FBI term for HR, and informed them what McCabe had been doing.

To reiterate, the charges are: leaking information and lying under oath. Losing his job is the LEAST of McCabe’s worries. He might now be looking at perjury charges. So seriously... who is the victim here?

Trump had nothing to do with this investigation.

Yeah, but Trump’s Department of Justice clearly did this to fire some shots at the FBI right? COLLUSION! In actuality, Trump had nothing to do with this investigation by the Inspector General. In fact, it was actually requested during the Obama administration BY TWO DEMOCRATS.

Back then, the scandal wasn’t Russia, but who was leaking information on Hillary Clinton. Michael Horowitz was the DOJ Inspector General and an Obama appointee.

Democrats figured this was their ace in the hole to find out who was hurting Hillary. Well, now we know who was doing it, but Democrats and the media have somehow forgotten how this whole thing started and that they were absolutely thrilled when this investigation began.

Democrats HATED the FBI back when all this began, and they were looking for someone to blame. Now they LOVE the FBI, and are somehow trying to blame the President for an investigation they called for under the Obama administration --- and that is being conducted by an Obama appointee.

So again I have to ask. Who is the victim here? The person on the receiving end of a crime, or the former Deputy Director wearing the ski mask?

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
