TERRIFYING: FISA warrant targeting Carter Page highlights an out of control FBI

Remember the House Intelligence Committee's game of dueling partisan memos? The Republicans claimed that the FISA warrant to surveil Carter Page, Trump's former advisor, was obtained by using unverified information… the Steele Dossier. Democrats answered by rebuking the release of the Republican memo, claiming it endangered national security and by saying that the FISA application was based on several things, not just the Steele Dossier.

My reaction after seeing both memos was that there was no real way to know the truth until we got our hands on the original FISA application. That seemed like a pipe dream. But that all changed on Saturday after the Trump administration released the 400 plus page application with heavy redactions. For the first time in 40 years, we've been given access to the justification to authorize surveillance on an American citizen. One word describes it: Frightening.

We're supposed to be living under a system of checks and balances. For example, if a high ranking member of the DoJ or FBI has it in for you, there's supposed to be a check or balance in place to protect you. That's where the court comes in. After reading the Carter Page FISA application, the only thing I can see is an out of control FBI and DoJ, and a sham of a court system green lighting whatever comes across their desk.

The Republican memo appears to be exactly correct. This warrant was based almost entirely on the Steele Dossier. Besides the dossier, there were two other instances referenced as part of the FBI's case. The first was a five year old dead case where two Russian intelligence agents looked into using Page as a source.

They quite literally called him an idiot and moved on. The FBI didn't see Page as a threat then, but suddenly this was being brought up in a FISA court years later. The second thing used was a Yahoo News article, but guess who sourced the information to Yahoo News? Christopher Steele using information from his unverified Dossier. Oh yeah, and Steele was working for and getting paid by the FBI at this point. Talking about running your evidence in one giant circle.

The wording of the entire application appears built to deceive.

The wording of the entire application appears built to deceive. The words "opposition research" are never used. "Candidate one," is very obviously Donald Trump, but you never see the words "candidate two" or anything else that identifies Hillary Clinton or the DNC as having anything at all to do with commissioning this information. Seems kind of important doesn't it? Keep in mind, this is in October. The election was just weeks away.

Omitting information and writing words that make the material seem softer has only one purpose. To deceive. The FBI and DoJ were trying to deceive the FISA court. There's just no other way to explain it. But I don't even know if it really made a difference. The court looks like they just rubber stamp these cases. We've heard the rumor that FISA warrants are overwhelmingly approved rather than denied. But this is just ridiculous.

How many other Americans are being spied on — right this minute — based off of a political motivation, or screw it, maybe even a grudge from some pissed off FBI or DoJ employee? FISA needs an audit. We should all be demanding it right now.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
