Barney Frank: Pot? What pot?

PAT: Barney Frank, it is now coming out Barney Frank was there when his partner was arrested for possession of pot. I guess they were growing, not necessarily they. It was the partner who was arrested. Barney Frank was standing on the front porch when police arrived and his partner was arrested. But he didn't, he didn't know it was pot because ‑‑ do we have that audio, Sarah? Let's play that. Because there was ‑‑ they were discussing this I believe on CNN with Wolf Blitzer yesterday, and apparently Barney had no idea what was going on. Do you have that sound?

VOICE: Favorite from our favorite quotation category. Here we go. Congressman Barney Frank says he would not be able to recognize a marijuana plant because, quote, he is not a great outdoorsman. So you ask why would a congressman bring that up? Well, it turns out the Massachusetts Democrat was on hand when his partner was arrested for pot possession back in 2007. "The Boston Globe" reports Frank was on the front porch of James Ready's home in Maine when police found marijuana plants in the backyard. Now, Frank says he did not see the plants and he wouldn't know what they were anyway. Who knew that only outdoorsy types know a marijuana plant when they see it. So would you know a marijuana plant when you saw one?

VOICE: I'm not sure I would, though. If I can smell it, I think I know what it would smell like but I'm not sure.

VOICE: How would you know?

VOICE: Let's check in with Lou Dobbs. He's got a lot coming up on this story at the top of the hour. You could smell a marijuana, Lou, but you probably wouldn't recognize a plant. Am I right or wrong?

DOBBS: Well, you are dead wrong. I would recognize it rather readily. I think that we've got to give Barney Frank great credit for ‑‑ I love the fact that he said he's not an outdoorsman. I mean, that's funny as it can be. Thanks a lot. By the way, you and Jessica bowed out of that just in time.

PAT: Jeez, I wouldn't know a marijuana plant. Marijuana? I thought that was just something I needed to put some roundup on. I thought that was some sort of weed. Wait, not a weed, no. That's not what I meant. I meant I thought that was a daisy or a daffodil or some Dieffenbachia or something. That's all I thought that was. I didn't know it. I don't even go out ‑‑ I've never been outside. I don't even know what outside is. I live only indoors. I'm an indoorsman. What a lame and pathetic excuse, I wouldn't know what it looked like because I'm not a great outdoorsman. If this was Glenn Beck and he was standing on, you know ‑‑ I mean, we're not partners. We're just, we're friends. But if he was standing on my front porch when I was arrested for pot possession, do you think that would be on the front page of every newspaper in America? I think so. I think the bloggers might have something to say about it. I think MSNBC might have "Worst person in the world" night after night after night. I think they might have something to say about that. But for Barney Frank I guess it's not a problem. He didn't know anything about it when his partner ‑‑ is this the same guy who was running the bordello out of Barney's house, out of his apartment? Or is this a different guy? I mean, what is it when Barney Frank and his felonious partners? I don't care who his partner is, but he's got bad taste in partners, it seems. You only date criminals? Is that what the deal is? What is going on with Barney Frank and his partner crime spree? "He was running a bordello out of my house? I had no idea. I never go to my house. I'm not a great indoorsman. I didn't know he was running a bordello out of my house. I'm not a great indoorsman. What do I know about that." Now it's pot. "I didn't he had pot. I'm not an outdoorsman. I don't know anything about outdoors. I've never been outdoors." I mean, come on. What does it take to launch at least an investigation into this guy and his dealings and his life? What does it take for the people of Massachusetts to vote him out of office? What do you need? You have to engrave his initials into the pot plants? "This is grown by Barney Frank. This is pot and then this is the Barney Frank line of snack. This is the Barney Frank line of cocaine. Jeez, I ‑‑ here's my initials on it, BF. Oh, that's not mine. I don't even know who did that. That must be Bill Fredericksonbergsteinsen." I don't know. I don't know what it takes. Confusing to me. We'll have more on that as well.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
