The 'Kim Summit' finally happened, just not the one you were thinking of

The 'Kim Summit' finally happened! Ok, maybe it's not who we expected, but there was a Kim at the White House yesterday and policy was being discussed! I'm talking of course about Kim Kardashian and her meeting with the president regarding prison reform. That just might have been the hardest sentence I've ever had to say while keeping a straight face.

Is this ridiculous? Um, yeah… pretty much. We just had a reality TV star sit down in the Oval Office to have a serious conversation on prison reform policy… I'm talking about Kim not the president of course. She's the reality TV star I was referring to… OK so technically two reality TV stars sat down to talk policy, but you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, every president in the history of the United States executive office just rolled over in their graves… probably several times.

But I will say this. Sure this is ridiculous, but Kardashian's cause was admirable. Kim first got interested in prison reform after hearing about Alice Marie Johnson. The 63 year old grandmother was imprisoned for acting as an intermediary for drug pushers. There was no violence involved, but her sentence was brutal. She was given life in prison. This nonviolent grandma was handed the same sentence given to murderers and terrorists. Sure, she broke the law, but this hardly seems fair.

It's easy to see the humor in Kim Kardashian going to Washington (that's not a Frank Capra movie) but it's also legitimate to recognize the cause that brought her there.

Yesterday was just full of laughs. As I was trying to wrap my brain around this meeting, CNN's Jim Acosta wasn't having any of it. Acosta was irritated at Sarah Sanders for not answering one of his questions, so he went on with CNN's Brooke Baldwin to spew his own Kim Kardashian hot take. He said quote:

“Forget about the fact that Kim Kardashian is here at the White House today and what planet that is anything resembling normal because it's not. She shouldn't be here talking about prison reform."

Hmm, that's interesting. Isn't this the network that gives airtime - seemingly daily - to sixteen and seventeen year olds to talk about gun policy? Does that quote “resemble normal" to CNN and Jim Acosta? It never would have been in the past, but now I guess it's ok. What about the time CNN interviewed Stormy Daniels' lawyer 59 times in less than two months? Does that “resemble normal"?

We've come to expect the abnormal and unorthodox in this new era of politics. Nothing is predictable. The only institution in the country lately that's actually delivering anything predictable is the media. Week after week, day after day, the only thing predictable is their complete lack of consistency.

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

The Kim Summit shows media hypocrisy

Kim Kardashian went to the White House to discuss prison reform with President Trump.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
