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 the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
