The great Wile E. Coyote, ACME bomb scare of 2018

Nine suspicious packages and eight - well what do I call things - extremely ridiculous looking improvised explosive devices, or ERL IEDs, have been counted so far. The Clinton's, the Obama's, Eric Holder, John Brennan (care of CNN), Debbie Wasserman Schultz, George Soros, Maxine Waters and even Robert De Niro were all recipients of these ERL IEDs.

So first of all these "pipe bombs"... to get an accurate comparison you'd have to watch a few Warner Brothers Saturday morning cartoons to see anything even remotely close. Pipe bombs are usually made from steel piping, but these were constructed from PVC pipe. The reason steel is always used over PVC is because the entire purpose of the bomb is to utilize the steel shrapnel when it explodes. This attacker, who we'll give the codename of Wile E. Coyote, made his bomb out of... plastic! The devices also had protruding wires coming out of the PVC pipe with a big ridiculous looking digital timer taped to it. Again, this is not typical pipe bomb construction as all of the wires and the detonator are usually concealed inside the pipe.

So in other words, this device was the equivalent of Wile E. Coyote leaving eight overly large sticks of dynamite with a big alarm clock lashed to it with the words ACME bomb stamped on the side. Oh, and a big pile of bird seed next to it to attract the roadrunner.

And I didn't even mention the fact that a parody ISIS flag was taped to the device which is actually a right wing meme. And if you thought it couldn't get even more silly, the meme quotes Larry the Cable Guy.

None of these devices detonated. They had zero chance of ever making it through security screening, and Wile. E. Coyote must have known that. You think Hillary Clinton actually personally checks her mailbox everyday to see if her Amazon Prime order came in? You think George Soros does? Every person that has been sent one of these packages has mail screening, and these devices were designed not to kill, but to be detected, caught and seen. Wile E. Coyote wanted a media circus, and boy oh boy did he get one.

Now I'm not going to speculate who Wile E. really is. Is he a right wing nut or a left wing nut looking to change the narrative before the midterms… no one knows yet. But that's not stopping the left from jumping on this. No way… never let a crisis go to waste. By noon yesterday, Paul Waldman of the Washington Post already had an article out blaming Donald Trump:

Given what Trump has done and said, this was absolutely predictable. In fact, it's a wonder that it took this long. It's not just that Trump advocates violence against his political opponents — though he does. It's that everything about his rhetoric pushes his supporters in that direction…

When has the president actually called for violence? Calling the media Fake News is bad, but is that in any way equivalent to, oh I don't know, encouraging you're electorate to harass Republicans at their homes, restaurants or places of business? *Cough* Maxine Waters. Is it equivalent to declaring the end of civility? *Clears throat* Hillary Clinton. I could go on, but we all know the left's narrative that you heard yesterday, and will continue until the midterms, is complete bull.

And as far as the identity of Wile E. Coyote, for those of you in the mainstream media, it's best not to speculate.

And many of our friends in the left leaning main stream media were just utterly shocked that this kind of attack occurred. One person remarked how they'd never seen anything like this directed at one side of the spectrum. Seriously? I guess that's true if your memory doesn't go back as far as - oh I don't know - literally just a few weeks ago! Suspected ricin letters were just sent to the White House, James Mattis, FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson and Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson. Did they forget this just happened?!

And as far as the identity of Wile E. Coyote, for those of you in the mainstream media, it's best not to speculate. If you don't know… say you don't know. Do that and you might receive the unthinkable. Something you've lost long ago… a little credibility.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
