You know the world is upside down when Kanye makes sense

The Fourth of July came early yesterday. Well, if you were on Twitter, that is. The Twitter Left was all ablaze at the thought of one of their own defecting to the other side. THE BETRAYAL!!

Kanye West --- yes I’m actually talking about a rapper (this is still Glenn Beck) --- but Kanye West has been making waves in the Twitterverse the past few days by showing support for President Trump, and also --- and this one might have been the biggest sin of all --- actually challenging the narrative that African Americans ALWAYS have to toe the Democrat line.

It all started a few days ago when Kanye tweeted support for Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens. With just a seven-word tweet, the Left went into mega meltdown mode. Kanye tweeted, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks.” Instantly, the Left began calling West a tool for the far right. Never mind that there’s absolutely NOTHING far right with Candace Owens, but the liberal mudslinging piled on.

If you’re curious about the kinds of things Candace says that had the Left in such an uproar, she likes to make points like... if Black Lives Matter REALLY cared about black lives, they’d help stop Planned Parenthood from killing African American babies.

Shocking right? No? Well, to the Left that language is tantamount to an unforgivable sin.

As the Left tried to bully Kanye into submission, as per their standard operating procedure, he didn’t back down. Here are just a few of his HERETICAL tweets:

“there was a time when slavery was the trend and apparently that time is still upon us. But now it's a mentality. Self-victimization is a disease.”

Here’s another:

“Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.”

That one really sent the Left into a tailspin.

Look, I don’t know a whole lot about Kanye West. Everything he’s doing right now could just be an elaborate promotion tour for his next album. Who knows? But even if that’s the case, I love how he has --- wittingly or unwittingly --- made this point regarding the American political climate.

Freedom of thought is dangerous to hardliners on both the Left and the Right.

How ironic was it that literally within SECONDS of tweeting this: “The thought police want to suppress freedom of thought” --- the liberal thought police went into action trying to smear Kanye and everyone else he was supporting.

You see, freedom of thought is dangerous to hardliners on both the Left and the Right. Freedom of thought is THE unforgivable sin. If you dare to listen to someone with an opposing view, or --- heaven forbid --- challenge the narrative, you’re beaten into submission.

It doesn’t have to be this way! Promotional stunt or not, I applaud Kanye West for bringing this to light.

I might have to start paying attention to Kanye a little more from now on. Anyone know where the rap section is in the record store?

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
