Glenn Beck: Frog-gate




Did Glenn really throw a frog into a pot of boiling water?.... No.

GLENN: So last night I showed, you know, the fable, and it is a fable. In fact, it was in the original script before I threw the frog in, and I removed it and because I didn't want to telegraph that we knew. But it is a fable that you throw a frog into boiling water and it jumps out. That's not true. I don't know who did that experiment but maybe PETA should look into them. So we threw this fake frog, and we filmed it beforehand, and you'll see all the behind the scenes tonight. But we filmed it beforehand. We filmed the me reaching in to grab the live frog beforehand. And I'm telling you, Sarah, who is our director, she it was like Steven Spielberg last night. I actually, I actually walked over to open up the frog thing. Then they went to the videotape, the close up of my hands. I had then closed the thing and walked back towards the camera and I look up at the monitor and I see that my hand is still in the thing, you know, because of the videotape. I ran back to the thing and put my hands on that frog thing so when they went back to us, I was at that position and walked back.


STU: I was watching it on TV. I wasn't in the studio at the time.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Because I was in the meeting where we planned this thing.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And I was like, I hope he comes out and clarifies. It looked too real.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It did. It was seamless.

STU: I couldn't believe how real.

GLENN: It was really good. It was really good. She was Steven Spielberg last night. So I throw this fake frog. I say, you know, you throw it into the boiling water, and I have this little plastic frog, and we throw I throw it into the water and then for comedic effect I just pause and have that WKRP "I swear turkeys could fly" moment and I just said... "Okay, forget, bad example." And then I go back in and I say, forget about just like forget about the Republicans because many of them are fake, they're progressives. Forget about the Democrats because they're fake. I then say, the next line in the script was forget like the frog, forget about the frog because it was fake. I then also later say in that same segment that we knew that it was a we knew that was a fable, that they don't actually jump out, blah, blah blah, made a point. I come back, I fish the frog out. I didn't want to even take it out because I wanted the cameras to catch me fishing it out. I take the frog out, the rubber frog. I give it to John Bolton and I said, would you verify, ambassador, that that is a plastic frog. And he said, oh, yeah, it's plastic all right.&n bsp; So that's what happened. But even the Christian Science Monitor didn't do their homework. Their story is, if I may read the headline, Glenn Beck boils cute little frog to death.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: The story goes on to say conservative commentator was trying to illustrate a point on TV but it didn't work out for his point or for the poor little prop. Beck was trying to explain the size of President Obama's programs are so massive and coming so fast, the American people couldn't handle it, the American people are fighting back. How best to demonstrate this? Frogs. Beck likened the conservative uproar to Obama's initiatives to frogs that are thrown into boiling water, the experience is so shocking that frogs jump out. It's too much, too fast, he said, and the frogs, conservatives, aren't taking it. No, the American people aren't taking it. If the water was cooler, he says, it would gradually heat up and we would get the analogy, but it doesn't quite work. We know where he's going. Fail. The problem is his experiment failed.

STU: Did it?

GLENN: Beck had a pot of boiling water.

STU: Did it, media?

PAT: Idiots!

STU: Did it fail or are you proving it 100% correct?

GLENN: Beck had a pot of boiling water on his stage as well as a container of cute little jumpy frogs. He appeared to grab an unlucky one to begin the lesson, Barack Obama has galvanized the country, blah, blah blah, like, Beck tossed the little frog into the water. Oops. The problem is the frog stayed put.

STU: Oh, my gosh, did it?

PAT: Oh, no!

GLENN: So did we witness the senseless murder of an innocent frog, writes the Christian Science Monitor. Shame on you, media. Shame on you! Maybe you should watch tonight at 5:00. You want the truth, America? You can't go to the same old sources.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, Bill O'Reilly gave his latest take on the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and explained why he thinks House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is like "Alice in Wonderland."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
