Leftist hypocrisy explodes amid Trump tweet

President Trump appeared to admit yesterday that his son, Don Jr, met with Russians in Trump Tower with the intent of getting dirt on Hillary Clinton. He tweeted:

This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

This, of course, began to blow up the media all day yesterday because it contradicts what the administration said last year. Don Jr's statement regarding the meeting was this:

We primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children that was active and popular with American families years ago and was since ended by the Russian government, but it was not a campaign issue at the time and there was no follow up.

But was Trump's admission yesterday something we really didn't know already? We've seen the emails from Don Jr, accepting the meeting after they offered compromising information on Clinton. But it all went south when the only thing the Russians wanted to talk about was adoption and the Magnitsky Act. Whether the President actually knew about this meeting or not, we may never know. But, we know that high level members of his campaign, at least, wanted to collude… they just never got the chance. Again, as far as we know.

So really, there's nothing new here. But I did see a line in an NBC News story that got my attention. Directly after quoting the President's admission tweet, the article says this.

It is illegal for campaigns to accept help from a foreign government or from foreign nationals.

You see now that's interesting, because if that's true why haven't the senior members of the DNC, and even Hillary Clinton, been arrested yet? Because the DNC hired a foreign national, a former spy (Christopher Steele) for that matter, and that's not a problem? The Trump campaign wanted information from a foreign national (a Russian lawyer) but didn't get it. The Clinton campaign wanted information on Trump, hired a former spy from a foreign nation state, and then used that information to manipulate the FBI and the DoJ.

Out of those two scenarios, which one sounds worse? One candidate tried and failed, while the other was successful in getting compromising information - whether any of it is actually true or not is another issue - but she then used that information to try and swing the election, and the fallout is still affecting public opinion to this day.

No one's concentrating on the larger issue. How often does this kind of activity happen?

In the end, both sides were wrong. Team Trump was wrong for accepting the meeting under those conditions. Team Clinton was wrong for yet another crime that she'll inevitably never have to answer for. But no one's concentrating on the larger issue. How often does this kind of activity happen? How many foreign nationals are making money off of U.S. elections?

On the other hand, how many of our citizens are making money influencing elections in other countries? Tune in to TV tonight, only on TheBlaze, to see how wildly out of control this epidemic has become.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
