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.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"
