The Blaze: Barney Frank’s Boyfriend Heckles GOP Opponent After Debate?

GLENN: The other person that I'm very interested in is Barney Frank's boyfriend. Now, I don't know, is this Barney Frank's current boyfriend or old boyfriend?

PAT: I believe current significant other, yeah.

GLENN: I have never seen in my lifetime, I have never seen a political candidate have his boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, ex wife, mistress, anybody go out and heckle the opponents. But that is exactly what has happened with Barney Frank's boyfriend.

BIELAT: You know, we can send you some.

GLENN: Here's this

READY: You've got to get used to it if you want to be a congressman. This is nothing.

BIELAT: You're with Barney, right?

READY: So?

BIELAT: Just, that's cool.

READY: It's a free country, isn't it?

BIELAT: It sure is, at least if we can get the congress back.

GLENN: Okay, stop for a second. Let me just set this up. This is the guy who is running against Barney Frank in Massachusetts and he's holding a press conference. He just left NPR or a PBS station and there's just, there's like five reporters in the hall. And Barney Frank's boyfriend is standing about, what would you say, five, eight feet away?

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: And he's just got his camera up to his face the whole time, doesn't move the camera. Just a still camera. And he's just taking pictures. And just interrupting: You know, you better get used to that if you want to be a congressman. And that's when the congressman says, you're with Barney Frank, aren't you? Barney Frank's boyfriend. Imagine if Laura Bush had done this, okay? Laura Bush is just standing can you imagine? If she was standing there, you know, in front of John Kerry and just had a camera up to her face the whole time, you know, like she's disguised. "No, I'm just a photographer." And she's taking pictures and John Kerry would say, "This administration..." "Yeah, well, you're going to have to get used to that if you're the president."

PAT: You're with George Bush, aren't you? You're with George W. Bush.

GLENN: Aren't you Laura Bush? It's so pathetic. I've never seen anything like it. So he goes on to heckle and listen to, listen to the candidate who looks eventually at all the other reporters like, are you guys seeing this? I mean, is anybody else? It's honestly, we are beginning to feel like at least I do beginning to feel like we're on another planet, that something has happened and everybody has been replaced by a pod person. And none of the reporters are saying things like, "But you're with Barney." "So free country, is it?" Yes, it's just highly unusual for the significant other to be heckling in a hallway trying to disguise themselves as a photographer. What are you doing with the pictures you're taking of me? What is that? What is that? And then he goes on and that's when the congressman, "Are you guys seeing?" Listen to the rest.

BIELAT: You know, we can send you some.

READY: You better get used to it, dude, if you want to be a congressman. This is nothing.

BIELAT: You're with Barney, right?

READY: So?

BIELAT: Just, that's cool.

READY: It's a free country, isn't it?

BIELAT: It sure is, at least if we can get the congress back.

READY: Quit the joke, dude. You're not funny at all.

BIELAT: Are you serious?

READY: That was not funny. You just tried two jokes and they weren't even funny.

BIELAT: You're really standing here and heckling me? Is that really what you're doing?

READY: You were talking to me first. Weren't you?

BIELAT: Do you guys believe this?

PAT: You guys believe this?

GLENN: I mean, are you really standing here and heckling me?

STU: He's actually criticizing his material?

GLENN: But listen to his material: It's like, you talked to me first.

PAT: Yeah. I know you are, but what am I?

GLENN: Who is that?

STU: Did he even doubt himself after he said that? Didn't he say, you talked to me first... didn't you? I don't think he was sure that that occurred. What a weird

GLENN: I have never seen such desperation. And this is in do you have a copy of Common Sense?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: See in the gerrymandering section. Is Barney Frank's district in there? I think one of them is Barney Frank's district. I know it was one of them that we considered. And it's incredible. It's almost like, okay, um, you, you are in my district but your husband is not.

STU: That does not look like Barney Frank made the final cut here.

GLENN: Oh, I mean, it's an amazing snake that goes that goes through Massachusetts. His district is, it is so gerrymandered, it is so pick and choose. For this guy to be within 50 points of losing should show you how bad things are. I mean, I can't believe did anybody report on this? Because I haven't watched the news at all this weekend. Is anybody reporting on Barney Frank's boyfriend heckling and pretending he's a reporter?

PAT: I don't know. You know

GLENN: Have you seen it anywhere?

STU: TheBlaze.com?

GLENN: I know I got TheBlaze.com. Is anybody else on this story? I find it incredible. And meanwhile, you have Barack Obama saying that, you know, the Republicans are just becoming desperate. They're just becoming desperate.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me. I mean, I don't even know. I'm not even paying attention to what the Republicans are doing because it's such a clown show on the Democratic side. It is an amazing clown show. Here, play Cut 514 for me. Here's Nancy Pelosi and why she won't debate her opponent.

PELOSI: My priorities are to elect a Democratic congress. In order to do that is essential for me, time is money for me, is to move around this country, to amass the sources, put my candidates on TV.

PAT: Time is money.

GLENN: Time is money. So...

PAT: Can't debate my opponent. Time is money.

GLENN: Well, now at least we know what we're going to base our monetary system on. Time. Because they're not because money's not money anymore.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No. So we can just time is money.

And then you have Cut 456, here's Obama being heckled again, again by AIDS activists. I don't may I just ask: Has there been a bad spending cut on AIDS? Has something happened?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: I mean, George Bush went

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: George Bush spent more on AIDS than any other president. That's why Africa loves him so much because he spent so much money down there, and I haven't heard about the big AIDS crisis in money. I mean, I know there's a crisis in every bit of research, but I don't know why they're

PAT: Unless it's "Don't ask, don't tell" because he hasn't repealed that outright yet. Is that what keeps

GLENN: I don't

PAT: spurring them?

GLENN: I have no idea.

STU: He did make a lot of big promises and hasn't really seemed to follow those through and I think there's been some disappointment.

GLENN: Oh, please, AIDS activists, stand in line.

PAT: Yeah, there's a lot of that.

GLENN: I mean, really? He hasn't kept his promises? Jeez.

STU: They are not the only ones.

GLENN: There are about 300 million people in line there. Don't cut in line. Here he is being heckled.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: They want to roll back Wall Street reform so that taxpayers are on the hook for Wall Street bailouts.

GLENN: Excuse me. Excuse me, excuse me. Tea partyers want to roll back Wall Street reforms so that the taxpayers are on the hook for Wall Street.

STU: We didn't want the Wall Street bailouts! The entire movement is about anti Wall Street bailouts, yet he's trying to present the tea parties as pro Wall Street bailouts.

GLENN: It's

STU: That is so insulting to anyone's intelligence to pays attention to anything.

GLENN: You have to ask yourself, you have to ask yourself, which one is right? Because they're saying that Americans are misinformed, uninformed, angry. He said this weekend, "They're not even thinking right. They're just not even thinking clearly. They can't be expected to think clearly." Which one is right? Is he right? That Americans are just so stupid that they will fall for all of this? Or are we right? That Americans will never fall for this? Because the facts are clear. This isn't a matter of opinion anymore. This is just clear out and out lies.


 

William "Bill" Kelly is 95-year-old World War II veteran from Oregon. He lived through the Great Depression.
He served in the South Pacific during World War II. And now he has just fought the coronavirus -- and won.

Bill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to share his experience and a hopeful message about why the younger generations can overcome this crisis.

"I want to tell the people, it wasn't pleasant, but on the other hand, you know, if you do what you're supposed to do, and you have some loved ones around you, and do a lot of praying, why, you'll come through okay. We [American's] have been through a lot. We've been through Pearl Harbor. We've been through the Great Depression, and who knows what else. We're tough. We'll get through it. Hang in there," Bill said.

"You know, it's just -- it's in our American blood," he added. "We're that type of people. We take care of each other, and we are not going to break down. We're going to make it through, every time. Every time."

"There are people that don't think we are those people anymore. That it was the greatest generation -- your generation -- that did it, but now we're not the same people. Do you agree with that? Glenn asked.

"No," asserted Bill. "And the reason I say that is because I remember when I was a young kid, you know, and people, the older people, said 'all those young kids are soft' ... but when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor -- sneak attack, you know -- it's surprising how those so-called goofy kids turned into mighty fine fighting people. And they're very loyal. I have lots of faith in them ... no, I don't have any problems with this new generation. They'll take care of us. We're Americans."

COVID-19 Now Killing Victims Who Don't Have COVID-19 https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/coronavirus-nyc-emts-stop-taking-cardiac-arrest-patients-to-hospitals/
  • EMTs in New York have been given a directive not to transport heart-attack victims to hospitals if they cannot be revived at the scene.
  • Prior cardiac arrest victims would have been transported to hospitals for further life-saving procedures, but with hospitals being overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, heart attack victims are solely in the hands of local EMTs. If EMTs cannot restore a pulse at the scene, victims are to be left there to die.
  • "Artificial ventilation and/or compressions must not be delayed," the memo states, adding that chest "compressions must begin as soon as it is determined the patient does not have a pulse."
  • But the guidelines change if the patient cannot be revived before arriving at a hospital.
  • "In the event a resuscitation is terminated, and the body is in public view, the body can be left in the custody of the NYPD."
China Lied, People Died Trending on Social Media https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-01/china-concealed-extent-of-virus-outbreak-u-s-intelligence-says
  • US Intelligence Services has concluded what the Internet has known since January: The Chinese Communist Party lied about total infected and total deaths due to Coronavirus.
  • Citing a report provided to the White House last week, officials confirmed that US Intelligence concludes 'gross' underreporting of total cases and total deaths, especially from Hubei Province.
  • Many have speculated that numbers coming out of China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and other totalitarian countries have been dramatically underreported, by as much as a factor of 10 according to official British Intelligence reports.
  • The early misrepresentation of data by the CCP may have lead some Western Politicians and epidemiologists to underestimate the seriousness of COVID-19 and delayed response in Italy, Spain, the UK and the US.
  • Though why anybody would have believed anything the Chinese Communist Party had to say remains an open question...
Italy's Death Toll Far Higher Than Reported https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/italys-coronavirus-death-toll-is-far-higher-than-reported/ar-BB122vvc
  • In the town of Coccaglio, an hour's drive east of here, the local nursing home lost over a third of its residents in March. None of the 24 people who died there were tested for the new coronavirus. Nor were the 38 people who died in another nursing home in the nearby town of Lodi.
  • These aren't isolated incidents. Italy's official death toll from the virus stands at 13,155, the most of any country in the world. But that number tells only part of the story because many people who die from the virus don't make it to the hospital and are never tested, therefore they aren't included in official numbers.
  • "They were all sick, they all had flu-like symptoms and difficulty breathing," stated a nurse from one of the nursing homes. "We had no ambulance to get them to Milan."
  • In the areas worst hit by the pandemic, Italy is undercounting thousands of deaths caused by the virus, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows, indicating that the pandemic's human toll may end up being much greater, and infections far more widespread, than official data indicate.
  • As stretched and sometimes overwhelmed hospitals fight to save their patients, many other people die unseen and uncounted, including elderly people in out-of-the-way locations.
  • In addition, the health-care crisis can lead to a surge of deaths from other causes that would normally be treatable.
  • "There are many more dead from the virus than are officially declared... People died and they were never tested because time and resources are limited," Eugenio Fossati, deputy mayor of Coccaglio, says of deaths caused by the virus.
More Numbers Hard to Trust as Bodies Left On The Streets in Ecuador https://www.scmp.com/news/world/americas/article/3078077/coronavirus-bodies-are-being-left-streets-ecuador
  • Coronavirus: bodies are being left on the streets in Ecuador.
  • 'They fall in front of hospitals or in back street alleys, or in small villages…no one wants to recover them,' says the mayor of Ecuador's largest city.
  • The army is placing unclaimed bodies in refrigerated cargo containers at the port while authorities pursue plans for a new cemetery.
  • The corpses have been overwhelming Guayaquil, a port city of 2.8 million at the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in Ecuador.
  • Over the last few days, several were wrapped in plastic and left on the streets. Others have lain unclaimed in hospitals and clinics that have been overwhelmed by infections. The city morgue is full.
  • The majority of the dead are believed to be victims of the virus, but nobody can say for sure how many. There has been little testing.
  • The country has confirmed 2,700 infections and 93 deaths - 60 of them in Guayaquil and its immediate surroundings. But municipal officials there said they have recovered at least 400 bodies in the last 3 days.
  • Mayor Cynthia Viteri, who announced that she has also tested positive for the virus, said the national government should be responsible for collecting the corpses.
  • "They're leaving them in the villages, they are stacked in front of hospitals," she said in a Twitter video message to residents late last week.
  • Many local villages in Ecuador are simply burying the dead in unmarked graves, which will make official counting of COVID-19 victims impossible in the weeks ahead.
50% of Viral Spread Comes from People With No Symptoms https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/01/health/us-coronavirus-updates-wednesday/index.html
  • Researchers in Iceland have confirmed earlier reports from Hong Kong that a significant amount of viral spread is caused by carriers who have no symptoms.
  • In the US, Doctors at the CDC have confirmed asymptomatic spread, but estimate a number of about 25%.
  • If true, then the case for all persons to wear masks, even those who don't have symptoms, becomes much stronger.
  • To prevent further spread, the top infectious disease expert in the US says health officials are reconsidering guidance on face masks.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would "lean towards" recommending that the general public wear face masks "if we do not have the problem of taking away masks from the health care workers who need them. The public can stay home to avoid infection, but health care workers cannot," he said.
  • "We're not there yet, but I think we're close to coming to some determination," Fauci said.
Ship vs Train... Ship Wins https://abc7.com/usns-mercy-coronavirus-train-crash-derailment/6069395/
  • A Locomotive Engineer in Los Angeles has been charged with 1 Count of "Train Wrecking", a Class A Felony under Federal Law, after purposely derailing his freight train while attempting to sink the US Hospital ship Mercy.
  • Eduardo Moreno, 44, intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"
  • Moreno admitted to crashing the train intentionally but said he did not plan it out in advance. It is believed that he acted alone.
  • He allegedly made statements to a CHP officer that included "You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."
  • Officials say video from inside the train's cab shows Moreno holding a lighted flare during the incident.
Biggest Issue With COVID-19 in Malaysia: Nagging Wives https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825051317/dont-nag-your-husband-during-lock-down-malaysias-government-advises-women
  • Malaysia has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with more than 2,900 and counting.
  • This week, Malaysia's government also had a serious public relations issue after an ill-conceived plan went online.
  • Malaysia's Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development issued a series of online posters on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WomenPreventCOVID19. It advised the nation's women to help with the country's partial lockdown by not nagging their husbands.
  • The ministry also advised women to refrain from being "sarcastic" if they asked for help with household chores.
  • Additionally, the Ministry urged women working from home to dress up and wear makeup.
  • After some negative response on social media, the public service messages have been removed from the Ministry's Facebook page.

MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell was lambasted by the left and mainstream media after he announced at a White House press briefing on Monday that his company will start making tens of thousands of masks to fight against the spread of coronavirus. Lindell also thanked God for President Donald Trump and encouraged Americans to turn back to God in this time of crisis.

Read the details here.

Whether it was his support for President Trump or strong religious beliefs, no one has lit up the media quite like Mike Lindell. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to talk about the president, the 'horrible, crazy media' and how he's not afraid to keep speaking out about his faith.

"I think people are going to quit being brainwashed by this horrible, crazy media -- they know who they are -- and the public is going to see the amazing job that our president is doing," Lindell said. "I've done interview after interview today. I'm taking all the bad ones on -- I think I'm going on 'The View' tomorrow I love it. I want to go right into the hurricane. Finally, I get to speak out for Jesus like I want to."

News broke that German Finance Minister Thomas Schaefer reportedly committed suicide on Saturday due to the stress from the economic climate during the coronavirus crisis. Unfortunately, this headline may become more common place. Concerns are far beyond those of just hand washing, finding toilet paper and the latest White House briefings. There may be a secondary crisis growing — mental health and suicide.

Messages fill my inbox daily from parents worried about their teens showing signs of risk of suicidal ideation. Spouses concerned about the toil recent layoffs will have on their partners. Elderly family members are also vulnerable.

Last week, news a father of three dying by suicide made me want to scream to the world – "LISTEN!" We are losing too many of our human family. And I am afraid with COVID-19 on the scene, we are going to lose more than ever.

During the past six years — following the suicide of my 40-year-old sister — my mission has been to bring awareness and help prevent suicide. Everyone is exposed to suicide. You either struggle with depression/anxiety, you love someone that struggles, or like me, you have already lost someone to suicide. That is literally everyone on the planet. Bigger numbers than even the virus.

Little known fact. Springtime is a peak season for suicides. Even compared to the holidays.

Little known fact. Springtime is a peak season for suicides. Even compared to the holidays.

So, pile on the constant stream of news, stats about COVID-19 deaths and a lock down on social distancing, even the most emotionally skilled individual may be drowning in vulnerability and at risk.

What can be done?

Social distancing, not isolation

Even though we are standing 6ft apart in the grocery stores, and no longer going to church together, humans need connection to survive.

Free communication apps like Marco Polo are a great way to not hide behind a text. Whether it is on video chat or old fashion letter writing, making connection a priority is crucial for our survival.

Emotional check-in

The new normal seems to be changing by the hour. It is hard to keep up, recalibrating with all the change. Just like the importance of taking temperature to check for virus symptoms, we need to monitor our emotional temp. Try the one word check-in, at dinner time, simply by asking, "How am I feeling today?" It can be a great barometer.

Naming our feelings keep them tamed.

It's Ok to not be Ok

It is crucial to our survival to frame this crisis with a mental health back drop. Suicide, depression and anxiety concerns should be at the top of the STAY HOME and STAY SAFE list. If you find yourself feeling helpless or having thoughts of self-harm, please reach out for additional support. Therapists are using online formats to serve their clients. Call your doctor or one of the many 1-800 numbers.

No one is an extra, disposable member of our human family.

If you are reading this and struggling. Please remember, we will never be better without you. No one is an extra, disposable member of our human family. We will make it thru this COVID-19 crisis stronger and closer than before. No longer will we take hugging our neighbor for granted.

And maybe, just maybe we will someday find the vaccine that stops suicide virus from spreading.
