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 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?
During a campaign stop in Aurora, Colorado recently, a woman named Lauren Boebert confronted Beto O'Rourke about his recent statement that "hell yes" certain guns — like the AR 15 — would be confiscated during his presidency. Boebert said "Hell No," then explained to Beto why a gun confiscation will done nothing good for the safety of America.
Never forget the lives lost on September 11th, 2001. We give tribute to the nearly three thousand people murdered on 9/11 -- whether inside the World Trade Center, the brave men and women who ran towards the danger, or aboard the four planes. And we remember the millions of Americans who stood together in the days after.
