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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
