Hell has frozen over and light sprinkles of journalism have been spotted

Well, it happened. At least a small part of hell apparently froze over, because a member of the media actually admitted that he shouldn't have dismissed Juanita Broaddrick's accusation against Bill Clinton.

Columnist Richard Cohen, who has worked at The Washington Post since 1968, wrote an opinion piece titled "I thought Juanita Broaddrick wasn't credible. I was wrong."

Juanita Broaddrick is the woman who alleges that Bill Clinton raped her when he was running for Arkansas governor in 1978.

But since the #MeToo movement exploded over a year ago, there has been a tidal shift in the culture, culminating in the tug-of-war over allegations during the Kavanaugh hearings. And one of the biggest takeaways from those hearings, according to those on the Left, is that you always believe the victim. During the hearings, Anita Hill was once again in the spotlight, brought up over and over, and her accusations against Clarence Thomas universally believed in the media. Yet, somehow, some of Bill Clinton's accusers still haven't been extended the same sympathy as Dr. Blasey Ford and Anita Hill.

That's why it is so unusual to hear a Bill Clinton supporter admit he may have been wrong about Broaddrick. It's twenty years too late and obviously influenced by the #MeToo movement, but Cohen admits to dismissing Broaddrick's claims during Clinton's presidency as "just another wild accusation made by twisted Clinton haters."

NBC's Lisa Myers recently told Slate:

I tested her [Broaddrick's] story every way I could, again and again and again. And no detail ever changed – it never got better, it never got worse. It was always the same.

Cohen wonders why Monica Lewinsky is now totally characterized as a victim, while Broaddrick is ignored. He says it might have something to do with Broaddrick being a Trump supporter. Nah, that couldn't have anything to do with it.

Cohen writes:

I remember refusing to deal with Broaddrick's allegations because I simply chose to believe Clinton was not a rapist... My position has proved naïve.

Whether dealing with the Clinton or the Kavanaugh cases, all political camps should tread carefully in their certainty about the truth. And to do that requires a huge dose of something even more elusive than the truth… humility.

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."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.
