Who is Ben Shapiro and why is he so feared and loathed by liberals?

You may know Ben Shapiro as the editor-in-chief of conservative news site, The Daily Wire, or as the controversial political speaker who unapologetically dismantles weak liberal arguments on college campuses nationwide and multiple media outlets. But who was Ben Shapiro before he became the outspoken voice of America’s young conservatives?

Ben joined Glenn Beck for a candid interview on today’s show. “I don’t know if the audience has ever really been introduced to you formally,” said Glenn, adding, “I don’t know what happened to you — I don’t know if you were bitten by a spider or something happened — but you are wicked smart.” Addressing Ben’s early graduation from high school, Glenn asked, “You were 16 years old going to UCLA, what was that like?”

“Well, it was fun, I mean, I hated high school. I was glad to get the hell out of there,” said Ben. “High school was garbage. I was two years younger than everybody else … when you’re 5 foot 2 and like 120 pounds, and smarter than most the kids in your class, and kind of obnoxious, things go real well for you in high school … yeah, going to college was great.”

Here are a few more interesting points discussed in today’s interview:

  • Ben graduated high school at age 16.
  • He graduated from UCLA [summa cum laude, of course] in 2004.
  • At age 17, he became the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the U.S.
  • Ben has written several bestsellers including: “Brainwashed: How Universities Indoctrinate America’s Youth” (WND Books, May 2004), “Porn Generation: How Social Liberalism Is Corrupting Our Future” (Regnery, June 2005), and “Project President: Bad Hair and Botox on the Road to the White House” (Thomas Nelson, 2008) and New York Times bestseller “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” (Simon & Schuster, 2012).
  • He graduated with honors from Harvard Law School in 2007.
  • He started his own legal consulting firm, Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting.
  • He was the editor-at-large at Breitbart until he resigned in March 2016.
  • Ben’s columns have been published numerous newspapers and websites, and he has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows around the country.
  • An Orthodox Jew, Ben has often spoken out against anti-Israel and anti-Semitic movements.
  • Now 34, Ben has been married for ten years and has two children.

How Bill O'Reilly Would've Handled the Hunter Biden Story | Ep 86

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly, dishes with Glenn about his time at Fox News. He explains why he believes he got labeled as "being difficult to work with," what happened when he asked executives if he could moderate a presidential debate, and what the first words he ever said to Glenn were (hint: It was typical O'Reilly). He also reveals how he would've handled the Hunter Biden email story if he were the editor of the New York Post, gives his predictions for the final debate (if it even happens), and imagines what Donald Trump will do if he doesn't win a second term. "He ain't gonna get down to Dallas and paint," O'Reilly says. "He'll probably buy the L.A. Lakers and fire LeBron James!"

NY Post editor speaks out after 'Big Tech' SILENCES bombshell story on Hunter Biden & Ukraine

NY Post Opinion Editor Sohrab Ahmari tried posting a link on Twitter to the bombshell story his newspaper broke about newly obtained emails between Hunter Biden and Burisma officials in Ukraine. But he was blocked. According to Twitter, the story was "potentially harmful." Yeah, harmful to the Joe Biden campaign… because this story — if verified to be true — is the "smoking gun" that threads ALL the pieces of the Biden, Ukraine saga together. But instead of allowing voters to make their own decisions in the upcoming election, it seems Big Tech is doing what it can to gate keep in new, dangerous ways.

How did a repair shop obtain Hunter Biden's alleged laptop?

This might be the craziest story of 2020 so far. So crazy, in fact, that Glenn and Stu have a hard time believing it's fully true. New, damning emails were just unveiled between a top businessman at energy company Burisma and Joe Biden's son, Hunter, discussing how he could "use [his] influence" on the company's behalf. But that's not the insane part...the emails were discovered on a laptop, possibly Hunter Biden's, that was mysteriously abandoned at a computer repair shop. So, is it fake news? The work of a foreign influence? Or did Hunter not think this through? Either way, the laptop is in the hands of a FBI investigation now, so the Biden family/Ukraine saga lives on...
