Sam Harris says there was 'absolutely' a 'Left-wing conspiracy' against Trump 2020 — but here's why it was 'warranted'
Sam Harris, a neuroscientist, philosopher, New York Times bestselling author, and host of the reputedly non-partisan and intellectually honest "Making Sense" podcast, just destroyed his own credibility, if not his entire career, in less than two minutes by finally admitting what he really thinks about free speech and censorship.
On the YouTube show and podcast "TRIGGERnometry," with hosts Konstantin Kisin and Francis Foster, Harris addressed censorship of the New York Post's now-infamous Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of the November 2020 election.
“Hunter Biden literally could have had the corpses of children in his basement, I would not have cared,” Harris stated. "Whatever the scope of Joe Biden's corruption is ... — getting kickbacks from Hunter Biden's deals in Ukraine ... or China — it is infinitesimal compared to the corruption we know Donald Trump is involved in."

Harris goes on to admit that suppressing the information found on Hunter Biden's laptop until after the was "absolutely" a "Left-wing conspiracy to deny the presidency to Donald Trump," but argued that "it was warranted."
"I'm sorry ... but you've just said something I really struggle with there," Kisin interjected. "You're saying you are content with a Left-wing conspiracy to prevent somebody being democratically reelected as president?"
"It was a conspiracy out in the open, but it doesn't matter what part's conspiracy, what part's out in the open," Harris responded. He went on to justify the election-influencing "Left-wing conspiracy" by suggesting that President Donald Trump was the equivalent of "an asteroid hurtling toward Earth."
\u201cThe quiet part. He said it out loud. This is a document for the ages.\u201d— Alexandros Marinos (@Alexandros Marinos) 1660776992
\u201c"There's an algorithm I run more than most, called intellectual honesty".\n\nComing strong out the gate, Harris.\nhttps://t.co/seNg32jAAs\u201d— Alexandros Marinos (@Alexandros Marinos) 1660775795
\u201c@ellymelly These are the very same people that scream about "democracy!!". But yet, they'll do anything to destroy the democratic process, when they "believe it's the right thing to do."\u201d— Alexandra Marshall (@Alexandra Marshall) 1660818264
\u201cHistorically I have always liked and respected @SamHarrisOrg. I have no personal beef with him. We probably agree on 95% of issues. However, his Trump hatred is off-putting because it perfectly captures what happens to a parasitized mind infected with blind hatred. Rationality\u201d— Gad Saad (@Gad Saad) 1660829484
\u201cTrump has countless personal faults that are truly grotesque, in a democracy founded on deontological and non-violable first principles, we can NEVER set these aside for any reason. Tyrants have utilized the "existential urgency" argument to engage in horrifying acts throughout\u201d— Gad Saad (@Gad Saad) 1660829484
\u201cdemocracy; he did not institute martial law. Any logical and rational person would conclude that despite Trump's endless personality flaws, he instituted policies that both Sam and me would agree with. Yet Sam's pathological hatred of Trump causes him to lose any commitment to\u201d— Gad Saad (@Gad Saad) 1660829484
\u201cthe mainstream media's silencing of the Hunter Biden story because "it's too dangerous to allow Trump to win a second term." I'm astonished that someone of Sam's intellectual and moral abilities could have sunk to such a depraved level of consequentialism. To reiterate, I like\u201d— Gad Saad (@Gad Saad) 1660829484
On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.

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.”
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.

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."

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."
\u201cBye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won\u2019t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore.\n\u201d— Donald Trump Jr. (@Donald Trump Jr.) 1660702575
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.
\u201cDear #Trump\u2019sters: He\u2019s not your friend. Doesn\u2019t care about you. Doesn\u2019t like you. Doesn\u2019t even want you near his home. He just lies to you & uses you. @Liz_Cheney\u2019s been straight up w/you for years. Fought for you. She\u2019s a true conservative & patriot. And she deserves your vote!\u201d— Andy Ostroy (@Andy Ostroy) 1660574614
\u201cA supposed tweet from Donald Trump Jr. makes it appear he suggested Trump supporters aren\u2019t \u201cclean,\u201d but it was created by a parody account. https://t.co/Luntg5M9VT\u201d— PolitiFact (@PolitiFact) 1660607786
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.
