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.

The Left and their lapdog media are STILL busy looking for anyone and anything to blame for January 6. Their goal is to make "extremists" out of half of America, and Christians are next in line.

Faith is now on trial in the media, which dramatically reports lies like “a rise in a white Christian nationalist movement,” “The GOP: A party of Christian nationalists,” “It’s a radically anti-democratic ideology,” “Stamp the entire Republican Party as fans of this white Christian nationalism,” and “When they envision ‘one nation under God,’ it is a White Christian Nation.”

WRONG.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck brings the definitive proof that America’s heritage is NOT “white Christian nationalism.” It’s important to understand – and be able to explain why – acknowledging the historical reality of America’s Christian heritage is NOT the same thing as “white Christian nationalism.”

The attacks to smear any recognition of Christian influence in America’s founding as a dangerous threat to democracy do not hold up to honest scrutiny. Do not accept this dangerous smear campaign, and share this fact-filled rebuttal with your friends.

After getting WALLOPED in Wyoming, Liz Cheney thinks she could win the White House in 2024

Wyoming Republicans have sent Rep. Liz Cheney — and the Republican Party — a "massive message" by voting her out of Congress, but it now looks like Cheney is trying to turn this into an Abraham Lincoln moment.

After seeming to compare herself to former President Abraham Lincoln, who "was defeated in elections for the Senate and the House before he won the most important election of all" during a speech Tuesday night, Cheney appeared on NBC's "TODAY" show Wednesday and told host Savannah Guthrie that she's "thinking about" a White House run.

Is it possible she didn't get the message?

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere marveled at Cheney's tone-deaf response to Tuesday's devastating defeat, which, surprisingly, was not even the weirdest thing about this election.

"I think a humiliating and devastating loss puts you right where you need to be to launch a presidential campaign. Don't you think?" Glenn asked.

"Let me ask Beto O'Rourke. Hold on one second. I'll get him on the phone," Stu joked. "I mean, really, what is the constituency for a Liz Cheney presidency? She basically runs the state of Wyoming, and her family runs the state of Wyoming, and she got 29% of the vote there. So what is the constituency, other than the possibility of running as an independent candidate to shave votes from Donald Trump?"

"She's going to be brave and she's going to take that stage with Donald Trump ... She's going to be the one that takes him on and she will last all of about 45 seconds," Glenn said. "He will pummel her."

'Bye bye Liz Cheney': Donald Trump Jr. EASILY triggers liberals​​​​​​ with just one silly tweet

Donald Trump Jr. celebrated Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney's humiliating defeat in her state's GOP primary by releasing a 30-second video that was clearly intended to trigger the Trump-hating liberals on Twitter — and, naturally, it worked like a charm.

Rep. Cheney was defeated by Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman on Tuesday in the Republican primary for Wyoming's at-large congressional district.

Don Jr. took to Twitter to poke fun at Cheney's loss by posting a video montage of his father, former President Donald Trump, dancing with the caption, "Bye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won’t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore."

Hoo boy, talk about kicking the hornets' nest. The reactions on Twitter were so predictably full of vulgarity, name-calling, and low-brow insults that we can't share most of them here, but you've seen it all before.

Don Jr. has had an interesting couple of days on Twitter. Just yesterday he was actually vindicated by fact-checkers (yes, you read that right) who called BS on a widely circulated but completely fabricated tweet that made it look like he was bashing his father's supporters.

Don Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to weigh in on the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid and explain why he believes the Justice Department targeted his father and pedaled lies to justify it. He also gave his advice on what conservatives can do to peacefully and lawfully stand up against a system that's ignoring their rights.

ATF agent caught taking photos of gun-buyer personal info — insists she's definitely NOT 'creating a registry'

Black Metal Firearms owner David Nagel originally recorded on video an ATF inspector taking pictures of his company’s documents to show what the gun industry is up against in the current political climate, but what he caught on camera has now gone viral.

Nagel joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to reveal exactly what happened the day he captured the shocking video, the threats made by that ATF inspector against his regular customers, and the insults she hurled toward all gun owners.

According to Nagel, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Industry Operations Inspector Pamela Scott began conducting a routine review, but things quickly went sideways when she started taking photos of the shop's detailed sales records — including the identities of every gun buyer.

Nagel said he confronted Scott and even asked if she was "creating a registry," by collecting the personal information of his customers.

"No, that would be illegal," she allegedly answered.

That's when Nagel decided it was time to capture Scott's actions on video.

"We had quite a bit of recording," he told Glenn. "But a lot of it, we were not able to share because there was personal information visible in it, you know, contact numbers and things of that sort. So, we didn't want to put [all of the video] on blast."

The little bit he did "blast" out on Instagram garnered tens of thousands of views and received a wide range of both outrage and support.

Nagel went on to explain how Scott responded when he told her his customers would not be comfortable with her collecting their information.

"She said, 'well, it sounds like your customers are just being paranoid. Maybe I should look into them a little bit more.' Which I thought was really creepy," Nagel said.

"That's a threat," Glenn stated.

"And she said, 'you have a few gun nuts in there.' And I politely corrected her. I prefer gun enthusiasts. And she said, 'no, they're nuts,'" Nagel told Glenn. "That was a kind of backhanded way of describing the average American. Because, if we're all nuts, then what are you governing us for?"
