Glenn Beck: Baio and Beck

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK is the phone number, and I have to we were just talking off the air about, I have Michael Bublé's new CD and it's fantastic and if you are a long time listener to the program, you know Michael's been on the program a few times, been on the television show with us, and he's a great guy. But I want to give him full permission to claim that we have never met. And even if we did meet at one point or we did, you know, we were seen together, he hates my guts because I think I'm poison now for people like Michael Bublé. God bless him. So remember, Michael, you met me he was crazy. He wasn't even making sense. I just, I just try to play long, just make him go away. Go ahead, I got it, I got it. Between you and me, his new CD is well worth the price. Download it on iTunes or grab it. It's really, really good.

So now this weekend I get a tweet from somebody who is retweeting something that Scott Baio had written. Somebody was saying something about him and he was like, you know, you shouldn't follow me because I'm a fan of Glenn Beck. And so I see these tweets going back and forth where they're starting to bash Scott Baio for saying that he likes me and I'm like, oh, boy. And so I decided to tweet, good job, Scott Baio. And then it got ugly. And so I wanted to get Scott on the phone. Hey, Scott, how are you?

BAIO: Good morning.

GLENN: How are things?

BAIO: Things are, things are well, Glenn. How are you? It's a pleasure to talk to you.

GLENN: Good talking to you. You know that's the way usually people start with after they've been seen with me or they've stuck up for me or something. You'll say, how are things? And they'll go, well, you know, things are pretty, you know, things are pretty good.

BAIO: I'm actually just half asleep in my bed. It's raining here. No, but I watched you. Was it CNN or MSNBC you were on before?

GLENN: Good God almighty it was CNN.

BAIO: I watched you there. So yeah, I've been a fan for a while.

GLENN: Did you what is your life like now that you have said that you're a fan? Because I've seen some of the some of the stuff that comes in to me, you know, from death threats, you know, all the way.

BAIO: Right.

GLENN: Did you expect the kind and are you, first of all, are you getting nasty tweets now about you?

BAIO: I get nasty tweets for saying nothing.

GLENN: Who's like on Twitter, I'm going to take Scott Baio down?

GLENN: I get nasty tweets and I do a show nobody likes. But no, it doesn't bother me. I've been doing this, Glenn, since I'm a little boy and people have been talking bad about me since I'm a little boy. And it's okay. It's part of the game that I'm in. And at a certain point, you know how's your daughter, by the way, Glenn?

GLENN: You know, really good. And I understand we have something in common. You have a daughter of special needs as well.

BAIO: No, I don't. But we have a our daughter was falsely diagnosed with a metabolic disorder when she was very young, but she's healthy and fine. And we started a foundation called the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation which deals with metabolic disorders. And anyway, so my life that stuff doesn't bother me. I speak my mind. I speak my mind at my work and it doesn't affect me. But what I wanted to tell you is that's when I knew you were a good guy and it didn't matter what people said about me in terms of me watching you, when you choked up on television talking about your daughter. And I just thought, oh, man. And I wouldn't have gotten that until I had my own daughter.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAIO: And I respected you for that and I know a lot of people probably said it was an easy play for you. I don't think so, to do that on air. But anyway

GLENN: You know, they actually say that I'm acting. Don't you think

BAIO: That's what I meant to say.

GLENN: Don't you think if I'm acting, don't you think I deserve an Emmy?

BAIO: Yeah, I thought you were really good.

GLENN: Seriously I said the other day, I demand a damn Emmy. Put your money where your mouth is. If I'm acting, then I deserve a damn Emmy.

BAIO: You were really good.

GLENN: No, I want it. I want the Emmy. That's fantastic. So

BAIO: But anyway, it doesn't bother me.

GLENN: How long have you been, if I may, how long have you been "Out" as a conservative?

BAIO: Well, my wife, I campaigned for Reagan, for Bush 41, and so as far back you know, I've been thinking this way since I can remember. This is how I was raised. This is the neighborhood I grew up in. There's certain beliefs that I have.

GLENN: Where do you live now?

BAIO: I'm sorry?

GLENN: Where do you live?

BAIO: I live in L.A.

GLENN: Good God almighty, what is wrong with you?

BAIO: Yeah, I know. It's pretty hairy out here.

GLENN: You ain't kidding.

BAIO: Where are you, Philly or New York?

GLENN: I'm in New York.

BAIO: I don't know which is worse. But and somebody said on the Twitter, why am I going against the grain in terms of my beliefs. And I said, I thought I was the grain. I thought the things that I believed in were the things that this country stood for. And there's very few things that I truly believe in and

GLENN: Hang on just a wait a minute. I've got to go back to that. Why would you go against the grain on what you believe in?

BAIO: No, no. They felt that what I believed was against the grain.

GLENN: Yeah, but what difference does the grain make if you believe in something?

BAIO: Well, I don't know. And my argument was I thought I was the grain.

GLENN: You are.

BAIO: I thought the way that I thought in terms of politics and country

GLENN: Yeah.

BAIO: Were things that I grew up with. I believe in the military. I believe in people doing for themselves, which is what I was taught as a boy. You provide for yourself; don't look for anybody. I believe in keeping what you make, or most of it. And I believe in killing bad guys.

GLENN: See, that's the problem. That is the grain of America. But too many people see dismiss those, depending on what their party says they're for. The parties mean nothing. The candidates mean nothing. It's the grain. And if the candidate is for the grain, then okay, that's my guy.

BAIO: Right. And my problem really is with both sides, Glenn, as it is yours. I had a problem with Bush. And I met him, and I agree with a lot of what he did and I disagree with a lot of what he did. But I don't want people telling me what I and I don't care which party you belong to, independent, Republican, Democrat, the kook party, it doesn't matter to me. As long as what you're telling me is real and it's the truth and it's something that I can say, you know what, I agree with this guy on you know, it's like buying a house. If you can get seven out of the ten things you want in a house, you buy it. And this is what you're going to get with politicians.

GLENN: Let me make a recommendation. If you're in Los Angeles, I don't care if you get eleven out of ten things, don't buy the house.

BAIO: (Laughing).

GLENN: Scott Baio, the name of your foundation is what again?

BAIO: Bailey Baio Angel Foundation. It's for children with metabolic disorders, which is a sort of small community, and we've had it for about a year or so. And it's just to bring awareness to metabolic to expanded newborn screening and to people with metabolic disorders. That's the short of it.

GLENN: Scott, best of luck to you, man. Sorry for the hassle and you'll learn your lesson. Don't tweet about me anymore.

Avenatti arrested: The lawyer now needs a lawyer

At this point, I think there are about - oh - four thousand potential Democrats that may try and run for president in 2020. But we can probably take one off the list. "The creepy porn lawyer", also known by some as Michael Avenatti, was arrested yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles. And the reason why he was arrested kind of makes you think there's some kind of invisible force out there that's making sure either irony or maybe even karma is receiving it's daily offering. Michael Avenatti was just arrested for… Domestic Violence.

The alleged victim filed the complaint on Wednesday, but the incidents began on Tuesday. The woman involved is said to have bruising and swelling on her face and was kicked out of Avenatti's Los Angeles area apartment. Avenatti could be heard screaming, "This is BS, this is effing BS! She hit me first!"

RELATED: THIS spotlight hound masquerading as an attorney just got laughed out of court

Yeah, I don't think the whole "she hit me first" line is going to be a good strategy to use in court. He might want to revise that… I'm just saying.

You know, I wonder if the media - specifically CNN and MSNBC - are going to be doing any mea culpa's over the next 12 to 24 hours? They basically became Avenatti's PR wing over the past 8 months. From March to May, the two networks had Avenatti on the air over 100 times. He gave 147 interviews on both cable and network TV. MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell actually said quote, "Michael Avenatti is becoming my co-host. I've got to say."

And this was actually before he dragged Julie Swetnick into the limelight to attack Kavanaugh. You know I wonder, will this teach networks like CNN and MSNBC to maybe take a step back on over hyping and exposing every crazy, and even salacious, person or claim that comes out simply because it may be anti-Trump or GOP? Could this be a learning moment? Yeah… probably not, but one can dream.

And speaking of Kavanaugh, I've got to read this twitter exchange between one user and Avenatti on October 5th that said:

Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed, and it's Michael Avenatti's fault. Seriously.

And then Avenatti replied:

You are right. I should have turned my back on my client. Told her to "shut up" and stay quiet because people like you apparently believe assault victims are to blame. This line of thinking is disgusting and offensive to all survivors.

Well that was then and this is today. Here is Avenatti's statement last night.


Michael Avenatti: 'I Have Never Struck A Woman' | NBC News youtu.be

Umm, in the court of Avenatti, #metoo and public opinion now a days - by the standard that he helped create - is this statement not "disgusting and offensive to all survivors" as he tweeted back in October? Is he not immediately guilty as accused? I wonder if all the men and women screaming at Kavanaugh and GOP Senators in elevators can now see the pandora's box that they wanted opened.

The answer is no… he's NOT guilty as accused. Avenatti is innocent of this crime… UNTIL he's found guilty. We have to presume he's innocent until all evidence comes out proving he's not. That's how this works. Let's lead by example and do something radical here… let's actually wait for all the information and evidence to come out before we convict someone of a crime.

And that right there is the real irony here. Avenatti will get the due process that he deserves, but I doubt neither he - nor anyone screaming for Kavanaugh's head - will realize what happened.

It's been a busy week for former First Ladies, and for current First Lady Melania Trump. It has also been busy for one woman who, twenty-odd years ago, while working at the White House for then-President at the age of 21, shot to fame in the most embarrassing way possible.

Monica Lewinsky has released "The Clinton Affair," a docuseries that premieres this weekend on A&E;, a six-part series examining those cringe-inducing days and months surrounding her affair with Bill Clinton.

In an article for Vanity Fair early this year, she wrote:

Some closest to me asked why would I want to revisit the most painful and traumatic parts of my life — again. Publicly. On-camera. With no control of how it would be used. A bit of a head-scratcher, as my brother is fond of saying. Do I wish I could erase my years in D.C. from memory, 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' style? Well, is the sky blue? But I can't. And in order to move forward in the life I have, I must take risks — both professional and emotional…. An important part of moving forward is excavating, often painfully, what has gone before. When politicians are asked uncomfortable questions, they often duck and dodge by saying, 'That's old news. It's from the past.' Yes. That's exactly where we need to start to heal — with the past. But it's not easy.

She added:

Filming the documentary forced me to acknowledge to myself past behavior that I still regret and feel ashamed of," she explained. "There were many, many moments when I questioned not just the decision to participate, but my sanity itself. Despite all the ways I tried to protect my mental health, it was still challenging. During one therapy session, I told my therapist I was feeling especially depressed. She suggested that sometimes what we experience as depression is actually grief… Yes, it was grief. The process of this docuseries led me to new rooms of shame that I still needed to explore.

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton—a man who has been accused of all sorts of terrible things, a close friend of Harvey Weinstein—recently admitted that he didn't feel the need to apologize to Lewinsky. Lewinsky disagrees.

I'm less disappointed by him, and more disappointed for him. He would be a better man for it… and we, in turn, a better society.

The #MeToo movement has been a wrecking ball to so many men, yet Bill Clinton, perhaps the most prolific of them all, has escaped unscathed.

One man undoes shocking climate change study because... math

Pierre Leverrier/Unsplash

The left cries "science" about anything they want to consider a settled matter. Those who disagree with the left's climate change narrative question this "science." So, the climate change crowd are branded hysterical tree-huggers, and the anti-climate change crowd are naïve hicks.

The truth about climate change, like the truth when it comes to many issues, probably falls somewhere between the two extremes. But when it comes to climate change, it's hard to have a conversation about the "science" when the scientists running the show are already convinced they're absolutely correct and they have the unquestioning major media to back them up.

RELATED: 🤣😂🤣: WaPo claims climate change is the real reason for migrant invasion

Just two weeks ago, a study published in the scientific journal Nature claimed that the oceans are warming much faster than anyone previously thought. Cue the panic and blame the President! It was a high-profile story splashed across major media outlets who were eager to promote more science that confirms one of the left's fundamental doctrines.

The study claimed ocean temperatures have risen around 60% higher than the estimate by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But Nicholas Lewis, a British mathematician and climate-change critic quickly found a "major problem" with the study's conclusion.

Then yesterday, the two scientists who wrote the study admitted Lewis is right about the mistakes they made in their calculations. Now they say oceans aren't actually warming as fast as they reported. Climate scientist Ralph Keeling, who co-authored the report, says they miscalculated their margin of error – which is 10 to 70% – much larger than they originally thought.

Now they say oceans aren't actually warming as fast as they reported.

A 10 to 70 percent margin of error? I thought this climate change science was absolute. Imagine if your job had a margin of error that generous.

Keeling said:

Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that's going on in the ocean. We really muffed the error margins.

The whole incident is being laughed off as a minor error. But if it wasn't for some British dude poring over this research in his basement and willing to cry foul, this latest climate change "science" would continue to be broadcast as absolute truth. Just like it always is.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.


Ocean Warming Research “Mistake" youtu.be


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, from California, is doing everything she can to make sure she is re-elected in January to her spot as House Speaker.

Reasons Nancy Pelosi could give: Because she led the Democratic caucus for 16 years, and under her the House shifted hands. In fact, she was House Speaker for four years under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

RELATED: Sorry Nancy Pelosi, Apple's record-shattering buyback program is proof positive tax breaks work

Reason she actually gave: Because she's a woman.

During an interview on CBS Sunday, Pelosi said:

You cannot have the four leaders of Congress [and] the president of the United States, these five people, and not have the voice of women. Especially since women were the majority of the voters, the workers in campaigns, and now part of this glorious victory.

The pink wave, they're calling it. A rise in women politicians, supposedly in reaction to Donald Trump.

Here's the general argument, as described by Politico:

Push her out, and men may take over the party at a time when more than 100 women are heading to Capitol Hill and after female voters have been thoroughly alienated by President Donald Trump. Embrace her, and she'll prioritize legislation empowering women on issues ranging from equal pay to anti-harassment legislation.

Of course, she has a reason to use identity politics instead of merit: There's a concerted effort to have her un-seated.

At least nine representatives have come out and said that Pelosi will be out.

At least nine representatives have come out and said that Pelosi will be out. Filemon Vela said:

I am 100% confident we can forge new leadership.

Led by, Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), these are the representatives who have openly called for Pelosi's outing: Reps. Bill Foster (D-IL), Seth Moulton (DMA), Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Tim Ryan (D-OH), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Conor Lamb (D-PA), and Filemon Vela (D-TX). Campaign staff for incoming Reps. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) and Jason Crow (D-CO) have said they won't vote for Pelosi.

If they have a single ounce of dignity left, they won't, at least not just because she is a woman.
