VIDEO: Congressman assaults student




Congressman Bob Etheridge

GLENN: America, if you are if you are anywhere but in your car right now, I want you to go to either Breitbart TV or the Drudge Report and I want you to click on the video, Congressman Assaults Student On Washington Sidewalk. You need to see this video. It is brand new. It has just been posted. I want you to see your future. I want you to see who is representing you. This is a Congressman. What is his name, from North Carolina.

PAT: Eldridge? Let's see.

GLENN: I've never heard of this guy.

PAT: I haven't, either, but it's a Democrat.

GLENN: This guy should be brought up on assault charges.

PAT: Bod, Bod Eldridge, unless they meant Bob Eldridge. Ethridge. Oh. It's Ethridge. He attended a fundraiser headlined by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and then he was asked some questions on the street.

GLENN: Now, we're going to play the audio for you and we'll show this to you tonight on TV, in case you're not going to be around to see it or you don't have a computer to see it, but it is I find this disturbing, deeply, deeply disturbing. It is a college student with a camera and there's obviously two people with a camera and a college student has a camera and he's in appears to be in a suit and tie and he respectfully says, do you support the Obama administration's agenda and the Congressman says, Who are you? Then he immediately slaps the camera out of this kid's hand. Then he the Congressman grabs the kid's arm and you can see him. He is squeezing, he is intimidating. He is really a bully.

PAT: It's out of control.

GLENN: Out of control.

PAT: Immediately out of control.

GLENN: And continues to we'll play the audio for you, continues to ask, but I want to describe the. He is pulling him in and you can see the whiteness of his knuckles as he squeezes harder on this kid's arm and the kid says, Let me go. Congressman, let me go, he then takes and continues to ask, Who are you? First of all, I don't have to identify myself to you. Who are you? The gestapo? The Congressman then puts him in a headlock. Who are you? Now, I don't know what this Congressman's excuse is, but I can't think of one that allows you to behave this way, not one.

STU: I can't think of one that would allow it to may have it did seem like he was instantly agitated, I was wondering if, perhaps, there was a history of these guys asking questions or doing something to him. That doesn't excuse his actions, but I just wondered why he would be annoyed immediately.

GLENN: Do you think anyone feels bad for the Hollywood starlets with the paparazzi? Do they excuse them when they do things that are less than this?

STU: Much less. I mean, you see the

GLENN: This is assault.

STU: The typical, you know, TMZ pictures of the guy slapping the camera out of the face. That's where he starts. It gets worse from there.

GLENN: You listen to the audio, now, the Congressman is just walking down the street. Then you hear the encounter with the college student. Here it is.

VOICE: Who are you? Who are you?

GLENN: He slaps it out of his hands.

PAT: Now he's about going berserk.

VOICE: Who are you? Who are you?

PAT: He's got him by the arm.

VOICE: We're just here for a project, sir.

VOICE: Tell me who you are.

VOICE: We're just here for a project.

GLENN: Now, that's when he's squeezing really hard.

VOICE: We're just students. That's all we are.

VOICE: I have a right to know who you are.

GLENN: No, you don't.

VOICE: Just students.

VOICE: Who are you? Who are you?

GLENN: Look at this.

PAT: He grabs him by the neck. Wow.

VOICE: Who are you?

GLENN: I've never seen anything like this before.

PAT: This is crazy.

GLENN: It is extraordinarily disturbing video. Yeah, here's why I find it uber disturbing. There is a move now in our country and you know that I am a big supporter of the police, I am a very big supporter of the police. There are bad cops but as a general rule, I could just let me stereotype less than the President does. As a general rule, the police do not act stupidly or racist. There are bad cops just like there are, you know, bad talk show hosts and, you know, bad bakers and bad journalists. There are there is racism. It is a human condition. There is corruption. It is a human condition. I am a supporter of the cops. However, I am really disturbed by the move now in three states and as many as 12 online to make it illegal to videotape a police officer in the line of duty. So, if a police officer comes up and is questioning you and you have somebody behind you with a videotape, they can go to jail. I'm sorry. Beg your pardon? I don't think so. Now, if you are obstructing justice, if you are if you are in the face of the cop and he is trying to do his job, then I support, absolutely, but I want the judge and a jury to see that videotape. I want to see the obstruction. Videotape sets you free. It doesn't it helps the cops. How many times have we seen the cops probably more it has helped the cops than it has hurt the cops, you know, those things on the dashboard cameras that they have, usually they help the cops

STU: Yeah. You've got to think that's one of the reasons they're there.

GLENN: It is the reason

STU: You know, so they could see the truth.

GLENN: Right. I don't like it when anybody tries to tell me I can't videotape. This kid could have gone and said, I was assaulted, I was assaulted by this Congressman. Well, who are you going to believe, America? A possibly I'm just making this up. I don't know who this kid is, possibly a republican college student that just hates Obama or the Congressman? You're going to believe the Congressman, most likely and we're getting to a point now where it depends on which side of the aisle you're on. People will believe the Congressman if they're a Democrat and for Obama, if that is a Democrat that's for Obama that was doing the assault. They can even see it on videotape and it won't change their mind. And the same would be in reverse if the parties were in reverse. We're getting to the point where the truth doesn't even matter. It does. It does.

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.
