Elijah Cummings passed away Thursday. Though he and Glenn Beck surely differed when it came to political ideology, the life legacy of Rep. Cummings was a tremendous one. He fought tirelessly for Civil Rights, and the country is worse-off without him here. But the media -- specifically, the Washington Post, chose to remember Cummings in the HEADLINE as a "Trump target." THAT is how you choose to remember this hero? THAT is ALL the media cares about? The mainstream media's hypocrisy is reaching all new levels, and the Cummings' story is just the beginning of it. Another example? Trump and his decision to pull troops from northern Syria where the Kurds reside (which then led to an invasion by Turkey). The media was completely supportive when President Obama wanted to remove all boots on the ground in the Middle East. But now that President Trump tries to do the same thing, he's a murderer. When will it end?
Glenn reads some of his favorite poetic works of Edgar Allen Poe—"The Raven" and "The Tell-Tale Heart"—stories he used to read to his kids every Halloween. He also tells the love story of Edgar Allan Poe and his wife, Virginia, whom he married when she was only 13 years old.
Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
