Retrospective: my favorite Joy Behar lie

Joy Behar's show is going away at the end of the year on HLN.

 

---Your first question is probably--"who is Joy Behar?"  A: She, I think, was a comedian or something at one point, and she's also the craziest member of the View.

---Your second question is probably: "She had a show on HLN?"  A: Yes.

---Your 3rd question is probably: "How the hell did her show last this long?"  A: You can chalk that up to the fact that they had a great staff that was actually able to take her invisible talents and turn it into something that actually lasted for a couple of years.  A lot of them used to work with us when we were at HLN, and they were great.

Joy, however, is just not that bright.  And she lies a lot.  But, that's been documented a million times.  My favorite has to be her appearance on Leno a while back.  First, her justification for talking about Glenn on Leno:

JOY BEHAR: But um, he does, he talks about me. I'm on his list of 'I hate Glenn Beck.' It's like being on Nixon's enemies list. I loved it.

Hmmmm...I went back and checked to see if Glenn had ever mentioned Joy Behar on his Fox News show before this interview happened.  I couldn't find one mention.  Not one.  Maybe there was one somewhere, but couldn't find it.  What she was referring to was a list of people bashing Glenn that one of our producers put together, of which Joy occupied about three seconds.  It might surprise some, but Glenn isn't actually sitting in the edit room picking each individual clip of Glenn-bashers that airs on his show.   Regardless, here's how the conversation ended up:

JAY LENO: I heard Glenn Beck was talking about you on his show.

JOY BEHAR: Oh, yeah, Glenn Beck. ... (awful joke)...But um, he does, he talks about me. I'm on his list of 'I hate Glenn Beck.' It's like being on Nixon's enemies list. I loved it. But, I mean, I don't hate him. I don't hate him...I don't hate him and I want him to know that. Where is it?

LENO: Right there.

BEHAR: Over here? OK. Glenn, listen, I don't hate you. Sincerely, Glenn Beck, from the bottom of my heart, I don't hate you. I don't give a flying f--- about you.

You can still see the video here, if you wish.

Back when I heard that clip, I thought is was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard.  She seemed to me to be completely obsessed with Glenn.  I can't say I watched the show every night, or ever, but there did seem to be a decent amount of clips on the internet of her bashing Glenn.  Why would that be, if she didn't give a "flying f---" about him?

 

So, I off-handedly tasked an intern to see if she really was obsessing as much as I thought.  Alas, I was mistaken.  Joy really didn't give a "flying f---" about Glenn.  Which is why she only talked about him on a couple of shows, 9-27-09 and 9-30-09.

 

Well, and the shows on 10-7, 10-13, and 10-14-09.

 

And 10-21, 10-22, 11-11, 11-17, 11-18, 11-23, 11-25, 11-30, 12-1, and 12-23-09 .

 

Oh, and of course she showed her complete indifference to Glenn on 1-21, 1-25, 2-4, 2-23, 3-10, 3-11, 3-22, 3-25, 4-6, 4-13, 4-19, 4-21, 4-29, 4-30, 5-6, 5-10, 6-1, 6-7, 6-28, 6-29, 7-6, 7-21, 7-26, 7-28, 8-2, 9-3, 9-10, 9-13, 9-22, 9-27, 9-29, 10-4, 10-14, 10-16, 10-18, 11-1, 11-5, and 11-11-10.

 

It was at this point, I told our intern to stop bothering.  You get the point.  Glenn Beck should have received a restraining order against Joy Behar she talked about him so much.

If Joy Behar really didn't give a "flying f---" about Glenn, creepily obsessing about him on every other episode is a really strange way of showing it.

 

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
