Glenn Beck: Detroit, here we come!

GLENN: I'm so frustrated with these politicians, I'm so frustrated with our system that, you know, I was telling the Insiders that last night my dad writes me and says, did you know that Connecticut is trying to pass a law to make it so you can't homeschool your kids, and I just looked at him and I'm like, you have got to be kidding me. And so I sent the e-mail to one of the researchers of the show and I said, can you check into all of the details on this and find out if this is real. It turns out it's not. It's a thing that goes around all the time and it's not real, at least that's our initial impression. Let's just keep watching it. But I said to Tania, and I read that thing, I read it out loud to Tania and I said, this is it, Tania, this is it. I won't do it anymore. If this state passes a law that says I don't have control over my own children and I can't teach my own children, I'm out. I'm out. We're not moving to New York because New York will be -- we're out. We're going to move some place where the people aren't all insane. And we're going to be able to save what state we can save because New York, when you have 33% of people on Medicaid, 33% of the entire population of New York City is on Medicaid. Why? I already told you that last year, from last year to this year my healthcare for my company went up 47%. It's not like I'm hiring people riddled with cancer. How did it go up 47% in cost for my small business? Now, how does a small business survive that? Then on top of it my insurance guy calls up and says this new thing now, New York also needs this. Pardon me? How much is that going to cost? Well, you can get out of all of it if you just have the state cover it. No, my grandfather told me clearly and so did my dad. We do not take handouts from the state. I don't want the state involved. I'm not taking money from the state, period. But they are intentionally doing it, and city after city, state after state, the entire federal government now, it's almost like they're intentionally trying to make us all Detroit.

I've got a friend in Detroit. Is Dom on the phone? I have a friend in Detroit who is trying to sell his house. That must be fun, huh?

DOM: Yeah. You know, Michigan is a bubbling cauldron of sanity. So you talk about being set up with politicians that are insane.

GLENN: How are you doing it?

DOM: How am I selling the house?

GLENN: No. How are you staying sane? In Michigan of all places.

DOM: You and I talked about this before. I mean, this is home for me. I was born and raised here. It's a good thing I moved away and lived in a few other places and then came back because your view of the world changes and you do realize that the rest of the world is not this screwed up.

GLENN: How much are you selling your house for?

DOM: Right now $269,000.

GLENN: You have a really nice house, too. I mean, any place else in the country it would be way more than that.

DOM: Well, we didn't -- you know, that's actually more than what we paid for it, but I don't know that we're going to see that number anywhere near that number ultimately. But I don't have to -- the good news is I'm in a position where I don't have to sell it right now.

GLENN: So why are you selling it?

DOM: We're downsizing because I have other property up north and we just have too much property and --

GLENN: Oh, I hate when that happens.

DOM: Too much upkeep.

GLENN: Oh, I hate when that happens. I don't know how many people always say, I have too much property. Just -- so anyway, say hi to Lovie for me. How close are you? You are about 40 minutes out of the city, right?

DOM: Yeah, where I live it's an area called Waterford and it's a northwest suburb.

Detroit is lovely, especially this time of year...

GLENN: So I'm reading in the paper, and I had to read it, Stu, how many times? Four times? That the average home price in Detroit, the average home price is $22,000.

DOM: Well, that's within the actual city and that's probably accurate.

GLENN: That's a big city.

DOM: That's within the city of the Detroit. Now, what's bringing down a lot of the averages are the foreclosed homes and also the government auction homes. I was pointing Stu earlier to Waynecounty.gov which is the county site where you can buy some of the drug homes that are now being auctioned off.

GLENN: What do you mean the drug homes?

DOM: Former -- occupied by former drug dealers and so forth the government confiscated and is now auctioning off for nearly pocket change. I mean, you can pick up, you know, a house for $2,000, $3,000.

GLENN: That's a little pricey for Detroit.

DOM: It could be for those homes because you are talking about substantial fire damage, water damage. You know what I mean, there's all kinds of issues.

GLENN: So what is it -- yeah, Stu, go ahead.

STU: I've got the auction site up right now. There is an auction ending in two hours and 20 minutes in, let's see, in Detroit. Let's see. Flanders it's called.

GLENN: Do you know where Flanders is?

DOM: Yeah, that's in a pretty rough part of down.

STU: There's only two hours left and the house is currently selling for $2600.

GLENN: Is it a nice house, Stu?

STU: Well, does have a boarded up front window and a broken top window but it says here it's a solid two-family brick home with -- you just get some income out of the rental income here.

GLENN: How much are the bricks worth? I wonder if we can just sell the bricks.

STU: It's got plaster walls, covered ceilings and archways, custom details including built-in bookcases in the mantle of the fireplace.

DOM: Some of those homes have been -- you know, people have been breaking into them and taking the plumbing because the copper is worth money and so they're taking some of the plumbing and such out of and electrical wiring out of the homes.

GLENN: I'm thinking about, for $2200 I'm thinking about just buying the house and taking out the plumbing and the copper wire and -- I mean, because it's got to be a money-making situation there for -- what's the cheapest you could buy a home for?

DOM: Well, there's some auction -- there's one, if you are looking at the same website, Stu, the one on Trestor for $101. That's the current bid.

GLENN: We've got to be able to get a toilet out of there that's worth more than $100.

DOM: There's twelve days left on the auction. So I have a feeling it will go higher. The ones that are about to expire today within, like, the next two or three hours, the lowest bid is the one on Flanders for $2600.

GLENN: I think that's too much money.

DOM: Probably for that home. I mean, you have a lot of gunfire in those neighborhoods, too, in order to get to the plumbing.

Dan's Home Find


3 Bed, 1 Bath, 1,245 Sq. Ft. - $3900 or just $18/month! The only catch is that the house is located in Detroit...

GLENN: Hang on. Dan's got a house for $3900.

DAN: I just went on Realtor.com and there's a nice looking house, it's got a second story, it's about 1300 square feet and the monthly payment is $18 a month at --

GLENN: $18 a month. We should buy a house and give it away.

DAN: How's Trinity Street?

GLENN: We should buy a house and give it away.

DAN: Got a nice tree in the yard, front porch.

GLENN: A summer house in Detroit.

STU: I love this idea.

GLENN: It's $18. You know what, I'll buy the house, we'll give it away. I want the title away from me as fast as possibly can go. Give you the title of the house. We'll sign it over to the winner. I mean, I'll pay your rent, for the love of Pete. It's $18. Wait a minute.

DOM: I don't think you want to be in that part of town.

GLENN: What?

DOM: I don't think you would want to be in that part of town.

GLENN: I'm not going to be there in that part. I'm giving away a house.

DOM: Why would anyone want that?

DAN: It looks quaint. You are telling me Trinity Street's not quaint?

DOM: It's a pretty rough part of town.

GLENN: It's only $18! It's a house. Hang on just a second. Dom, I mean, you've got to make some tradeoffs at some point.

DAN: And there's big trees in the front yard. I mean, you could probably duck behind that if bullets come.

GLENN: It's $18. How much does it cost, seriously how much does it cost for, like, an 8 by 10 sheet of Kevlar?

STU: Yeah. We could make the whole -- we could surround the whole house with calf letter.

GLENN: You know who would know this? Adam! Adam, ask Adam how much it would cost to put a wall and cover it in Kevlar, from where the bullets are? It's $18 a month!

STU: What if we buy the house and then we give it to the listeners as a timeshare, a Glenn Beck listener timeshare. No, we have to give it to a listener but we have to say, hey, this is only available to Insiders or listeners.

GLENN: Dom, you are in Detroit.

DOM: Until somebody gets shot and then what are we going to do?

GLENN: What are we going to do? Then what we're going to do is we've got a timeshare opening. It's $18. What?


 

Avenatti arrested: The lawyer now needs a lawyer

David McNew/Getty Images

At this point, I think there are about - oh - four thousand potential Democrats that may try and run for president in 2020. But we can probably take one off the list. "The creepy porn lawyer", also known by some as Michael Avenatti, was arrested yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles. And the reason why he was arrested kind of makes you think there's some kind of invisible force out there that's making sure either irony or maybe even karma is receiving it's daily offering. Michael Avenatti was just arrested for… Domestic Violence.

The alleged victim filed the complaint on Wednesday, but the incidents began on Tuesday. The woman involved is said to have bruising and swelling on her face and was kicked out of Avenatti's Los Angeles area apartment. Avenatti could be heard screaming, "This is BS, this is effing BS! She hit me first!"

RELATED: THIS spotlight hound masquerading as an attorney just got laughed out of court

Yeah, I don't think the whole "she hit me first" line is going to be a good strategy to use in court. He might want to revise that… I'm just saying.

You know, I wonder if the media - specifically CNN and MSNBC - are going to be doing any mea culpa's over the next 12 to 24 hours? They basically became Avenatti's PR wing over the past 8 months. From March to May, the two networks had Avenatti on the air over 100 times. He gave 147 interviews on both cable and network TV. MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell actually said quote, "Michael Avenatti is becoming my co-host. I've got to say."

And this was actually before he dragged Julie Swetnick into the limelight to attack Kavanaugh. You know I wonder, will this teach networks like CNN and MSNBC to maybe take a step back on over hyping and exposing every crazy, and even salacious, person or claim that comes out simply because it may be anti-Trump or GOP? Could this be a learning moment? Yeah… probably not, but one can dream.

And speaking of Kavanaugh, I've got to read this twitter exchange between one user and Avenatti on October 5th that said:

Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed, and it's Michael Avenatti's fault. Seriously.

And then Avenatti replied:

You are right. I should have turned my back on my client. Told her to "shut up" and stay quiet because people like you apparently believe assault victims are to blame. This line of thinking is disgusting and offensive to all survivors.

Well that was then and this is today. Here is Avenatti's statement last night.


Michael Avenatti: 'I Have Never Struck A Woman' | NBC News youtu.be

Umm, in the court of Avenatti, #metoo and public opinion now a days - by the standard that he helped create - is this statement not "disgusting and offensive to all survivors" as he tweeted back in October? Is he not immediately guilty as accused? I wonder if all the men and women screaming at Kavanaugh and GOP Senators in elevators can now see the pandora's box that they wanted opened.

The answer is no… he's NOT guilty as accused. Avenatti is innocent of this crime… UNTIL he's found guilty. We have to presume he's innocent until all evidence comes out proving he's not. That's how this works. Let's lead by example and do something radical here… let's actually wait for all the information and evidence to come out before we convict someone of a crime.

And that right there is the real irony here. Avenatti will get the due process that he deserves, but I doubt neither he - nor anyone screaming for Kavanaugh's head - will realize what happened.

It's been a busy week for former First Ladies, and for current First Lady Melania Trump. It has also been busy for one woman who, twenty-odd years ago, while working at the White House for then-President at the age of 21, shot to fame in the most embarrassing way possible.

Monica Lewinsky has released "The Clinton Affair," a docuseries that premieres this weekend on A&E;, a six-part series examining those cringe-inducing days and months surrounding her affair with Bill Clinton.

RELATED: The #MeToo movement proves to be too strong for the Clinton apologists

In an article for Vanity Fair early this year, she wrote:

Some closest to me asked why would I want to revisit the most painful and traumatic parts of my life — again. Publicly. On-camera. With no control of how it would be used. A bit of a head-scratcher, as my brother is fond of saying. Do I wish I could erase my years in D.C. from memory, 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' style? Well, is the sky blue? But I can't. And in order to move forward in the life I have, I must take risks — both professional and emotional…. An important part of moving forward is excavating, often painfully, what has gone before. When politicians are asked uncomfortable questions, they often duck and dodge by saying, 'That's old news. It's from the past.' Yes. That's exactly where we need to start to heal — with the past. But it's not easy.

She added:

Filming the documentary forced me to acknowledge to myself past behavior that I still regret and feel ashamed of," she explained. "There were many, many moments when I questioned not just the decision to participate, but my sanity itself. Despite all the ways I tried to protect my mental health, it was still challenging. During one therapy session, I told my therapist I was feeling especially depressed. She suggested that sometimes what we experience as depression is actually grief… Yes, it was grief. The process of this docuseries led me to new rooms of shame that I still needed to explore.

Meanwhile, Bill Clinton—a man who has been accused of all sorts of terrible things, a close friend of Harvey Weinstein—recently admitted that he didn't feel the need to apologize to Lewinsky. Lewinsky disagrees.

I'm less disappointed by him, and more disappointed for him. He would be a better man for it… and we, in turn, a better society.

The #MeToo movement has been a wrecking ball to so many men, yet Bill Clinton, perhaps the most prolific of them all, has escaped unscathed.

One man undoes shocking climate change study because... math

Pierre Leverrier/Unsplash

The left cries "science" about anything they want to consider a settled matter. Those who disagree with the left's climate change narrative question this "science." So, the climate change crowd are branded hysterical tree-huggers, and the anti-climate change crowd are naïve hicks.

The truth about climate change, like the truth when it comes to many issues, probably falls somewhere between the two extremes. But when it comes to climate change, it's hard to have a conversation about the "science" when the scientists running the show are already convinced they're absolutely correct and they have the unquestioning major media to back them up.

RELATED: 🤣😂🤣: WaPo claims climate change is the real reason for migrant invasion

Just two weeks ago, a study published in the scientific journal Nature claimed that the oceans are warming much faster than anyone previously thought. Cue the panic and blame the President! It was a high-profile story splashed across major media outlets who were eager to promote more science that confirms one of the left's fundamental doctrines.

The study claimed ocean temperatures have risen around 60% higher than the estimate by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. But Nicholas Lewis, a British mathematician and climate-change critic quickly found a "major problem" with the study's conclusion.

Then yesterday, the two scientists who wrote the study admitted Lewis is right about the mistakes they made in their calculations. Now they say oceans aren't actually warming as fast as they reported. Climate scientist Ralph Keeling, who co-authored the report, says they miscalculated their margin of error – which is 10 to 70% – much larger than they originally thought.

Now they say oceans aren't actually warming as fast as they reported.

A 10 to 70 percent margin of error? I thought this climate change science was absolute. Imagine if your job had a margin of error that generous.

Keeling said:

Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that's going on in the ocean. We really muffed the error margins.

The whole incident is being laughed off as a minor error. But if it wasn't for some British dude poring over this research in his basement and willing to cry foul, this latest climate change "science" would continue to be broadcast as absolute truth. Just like it always is.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.


Ocean Warming Research “Mistake" youtu.be


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, from California, is doing everything she can to make sure she is re-elected in January to her spot as House Speaker.

Reasons Nancy Pelosi could give: Because she led the Democratic caucus for 16 years, and under her the House shifted hands. In fact, she was House Speaker for four years under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

RELATED: Sorry Nancy Pelosi, Apple's record-shattering buyback program is proof positive tax breaks work

Reason she actually gave: Because she's a woman.

During an interview on CBS Sunday, Pelosi said:

You cannot have the four leaders of Congress [and] the president of the United States, these five people, and not have the voice of women. Especially since women were the majority of the voters, the workers in campaigns, and now part of this glorious victory.

The pink wave, they're calling it. A rise in women politicians, supposedly in reaction to Donald Trump.

Here's the general argument, as described by Politico:

Push her out, and men may take over the party at a time when more than 100 women are heading to Capitol Hill and after female voters have been thoroughly alienated by President Donald Trump. Embrace her, and she'll prioritize legislation empowering women on issues ranging from equal pay to anti-harassment legislation.

Of course, she has a reason to use identity politics instead of merit: There's a concerted effort to have her un-seated.

At least nine representatives have come out and said that Pelosi will be out.

At least nine representatives have come out and said that Pelosi will be out. Filemon Vela said:

I am 100% confident we can forge new leadership.

Led by, Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), these are the representatives who have openly called for Pelosi's outing: Reps. Bill Foster (D-IL), Seth Moulton (DMA), Kathleen Rice (D-NY), Tim Ryan (D-OH), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Conor Lamb (D-PA), and Filemon Vela (D-TX). Campaign staff for incoming Reps. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) and Jason Crow (D-CO) have said they won't vote for Pelosi.

If they have a single ounce of dignity left, they won't, at least not just because she is a woman.
