NYT finds the smoking gun: Kavanaugh... threw ice at someone!

You know, there's two sides of a coin for every benefit technology brings. Take social media and the internet. Before they existed, journalists had a stranglehold on the mass flow of information and opinion. If you wanted to have a voice, you had to go through your local paper, local news, or maybe even cable news or national publications like the New York Times. But social media has changed all that. If you've got a hot take or maybe just saw some breaking news, you can instantly self publish and blast that information out to the entire world.

RELATED: Let's stop pretending the accusation against Brett Kavanaugh is credible

But here's the flip side to that coin. If you work at a news outlet that's supposed to be impartial, anything you've ever blasted out on the interwebs is instantly available to check your impartial or biased bonafides. Take staff writer for the New York Times, Emily Bazelon. On July 9th she tweeted:

As a @YaleLawSch grad & lecturer, I strongly disassociate myself from tonight's praise of Brett Kavanaugh. With respect, he's a 5th vote for a hard-right turn on voting rights and so much more that will harm the democratic process & prevent a more equal society.

That was just three months ago exercising her ability, as we all share, to be an independent opinion maker on a social media platform. Well, yesterday afternoon, Emily exercised her other platform at the New York Times with a holy crap bombshell on Brett Kavanaugh. The allegations are straight horrifying. If you have small children in the room or in the car, you might want to hold their ears for a second. Here we go. Emily reported that in September of 1985, Brett Kavanaugh… THREW ICE AT SOMEONE!!!!

Yes, that's where we're at right now. The frigging New York Times is reporting on ice throwing. Oh but surely there were arrests made and charges filed right? Well… no. Neither of those things happened.

How did this story get through the Time's editorial staff?

So what the hell is this all about? It's quite obvious that this story doesn't, nor should it, live up to the editorial standards of the New York Times. Someone threw ice? I mean, are you kidding me? Emily Bazelon's tweets make it obvious that she's opinionated against Brett Kavanaugh. So now, the New York Times has been caught publishing a supposed "journalist" being an activist. And this is no mistake. How did this story get through the Time's editorial staff? Maybe because they're activists as well?

Get used to it America. We've got a full week of this as we get closer to the vote. I predict the ridiculousness escalates to full on clown show. A clown show in the media, leading up to a circus in the Senate. Get your peanuts, cotton candy and popcorn ready.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.



On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
