De Niro at da Tony's gets obscenely political

I was just about to ask "who watched the Tony's last night?" but just playing the law of averages I kind of doubt the two people in America that actually did watch are reading this right now. But if you did, you might have been a little confused when Robert De Niro walked to the mic. De Niro walks out, you hear a couple cheers, then the audio goes completely dead. When the sound comes back up, De Niro is raising his fists in the air as the crowd commences to give a wild standing ovation.

Did De Niro just wow Radio City Music Hall with a masterful rendition of Henry V? Maybe he said this:

The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry "God for Harry, England, and Saint George!"

That surely would have brought the Broadway-loving crowd to their feet, but — yeah — that's not what he said. Want to know what he really said? It may not be in Shakespeare's unrhymed iambic pentameter, but this is the new poetry for the leftist tribe. It went something like this.

Quote:

"I'm going to say this, f*** Trump. It's no longer just down with Trump, it's f*** Trump."

Yep, that's what brought the crowd to their feet. So if you're one of the millions of people that voted for the president, do you switch off the TV, or were you not even watching to begin with? Apparently Robert De Niro — and all the other Broadway and Hollywood elites sitting in the theater — are so butt hurt that their friend, Hillary Clinton, lost the election that they could give a flying crap about half the country.

It really is amazing how these people can't figure out how arrogant and insulting they are to middle America.

Wasn't it brave that De Niro found the courage to stand up in front of that hostile crowd and boldly declare his defiance toward the president? What courage! Give me a break. It really is amazing how these people can't figure out how arrogant and insulting they are to middle America.

These award shows are always the same. It's a gathering of millionaires, who just left their $20 million homes, who can't wait to "high five" each other over how awesome they are while arrogantly insulting millions of hard working Americans. Factory workers, ranchers, farmers... I'm sure they'd LOVE to see a Broadway play, but who would go now?

I read a passage in Variety this morning describing last night's award show and it cracked me up. Quote:

Ostensibly a celebration of theater, the Tonys were an opportunity for Broadway to talk up the virtues of inclusion and diversity, while also drawing attention to gay rights, gun control, and the challenges facing immigrants.

Umm... yeah. And you wonder why no one watches these things anymore. Congratulations, Broadway and Hollywood. Pretty soon the only audience you'll have is two states out of fifty, your moms and dads and the rest of your colleagues.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
