Translating Harry Reid's Senile, Evil Lies

I can’t decide if Harry Reid is evil or just senile—so let’s just say he’s evnile.

How do I know this? He’s a lying liar who lies.

A couple weeks ago, Harry Reid posted an article called “The Facts About the Koch Brothers” on the front of his Senate site.

It’s no longer on the front of the Senate site because he had to hide it because it was likely a violation of Senate rules.

Of course given that it’s Harry Reid, it’s completely littered with lies.

We’re going to focus on just one sentence from his “facts” because it is my belief that every word is a lie, with the possible exception of pronouns.

Here’s the sentence: “The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads.”

That gives you a nice visual of Charles and David Koch writing a check for over $400 million dollars. However when you actually click on the source for Harry’s “fact” you’ll find this on really unbiased (sarcasm) “Republic Report.”

“Koch PAC specifically spent $4.9 million in disclosed contributions.”

Hmmm. So where did they get over 400 million?

“…But they also spent over $407 million on undisclosed campaign entities.”

You might ask yourself, if they were undisclosed how do you know about them?

You’ll be shocked to hear that Republic Report is not doing its own journalism on this story. It’s linking to a story on The Washington Post. And shockingly The Washington Post proves that every single thing they say is a lie. Here’s where they get the number: “Together, the 17 conservative groups that made up the network raised at least $407 million during the 2012 campaign.”

We should also note that only nine of the 17 groups filed taxes. Soon the other eight will file and Harry can further inflate his lie. Awesome!

Now that we have some information, let’s go and look at Harry’s claim, “The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads.”

Is every word in this sentence a lie?

First “The Kochs." It’s not “The Kochs", it’s a combination of 17 conservative groups that the Koch brothers are affiliated with in some way.

Two. The word "spent." That’s not what the sentence says at all. The network raised at least $407 million. It clearly says “raised.” Spent and raised are two different things.

Three. "$400 Million." The way they get to this number is so insulting to your intelligence you’re not going to believe it. They took every donation from every donor from all across America to all of these 17 organizations and credited them all to the Koch Brothers.

For example, one of these organizations is Americans for Prosperity. They alone have 90,000 donors. Harry Reid is giving credit for every dime donated by all donors to all these organizations to two people, the Koch Brothers.

To be fair, our unbiased source Republic Report notes that the Koch spending is Pac, individual, and outside spending. In this context, outside spending apparently means the spending of every single person in America who agrees with the Koch brothers.

Four. "Ads." Actually they didn’t spend all of this money on ads. Some of it went to salaries and overhead but also as The New York Times points out: “Americans for Prosperity spent tens of millions of dollars in political advertising….while investing equally large sums to build a national grass-roots organization.”

So if you can believe The New York Times, which I admit is a stretch, it’s probably around half or less that actually went to ads.

Number five. "Misleading attacks." Were those ads misleading attacks?

Congratulations you picked our video daily double. Here’s a sampling of ads that Koch related organizations ran during the election.

Certainly registering people to vote is not a misleading attack ad.

So, "Koch Brothers" is a lie. "Spent" is a lie. "$400 million" is a lie. "Misleading attacks" is a lie. "Ads" is a lie.

What’s left of this sentence is just “on.”

When we translate Harry’s original sentence from his native language of “Evnilian” to English it looks very different.

“The Kochs spent $400 million on misleading attack ads" is translated to “Seventeen conservative and or libertarian organizations that have similar beliefs to the Koch Brothers raised $407 million from hundreds of thousands of donors who have similar beliefs to the Koch Brothers of which they spent probably around half on ads some portion of which were attacking and an even smaller portion of which were misleading depending on your political views. Also the fact that I posted this is a violation of Senate Rules and I’m equal parts evil and senile. I am evnile.”

That sentence makes for a terrible attack website. But that’s what happens when you’re honest in translating Harry Reid’s Lies.

Harry Reid and Republic Report left out this little tidbit from the article they sourced: “The left has its own financial muscle, of course; unions plowed roughly $400 million into national, state and local elections in 2012.”

In his evnility, Harry must have also forgotten all about how the Koch Brothers donated to some of his close buddies like co-author of Obamacare, Max Baucus-Democrat, Mark Pryor-Democrat, John Dingell-Democrat, Tom Harkin-Democrat, Mary Landrieu-Democrat, Diane Feinstein-Democrat, Chuck Schumer-Democrat, Hillary Clinton-Democrat, Joe Biden-Democrat, Barack Obama—Democrat.

Remember Harry Reid is an evil, senile, evnile old man. Oh, and according to Pat Gray, he’s also the worst living human being on the planet.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
