    Brad Thor dropped a major bomb-shell on Glenn’s radio program Thursday, saying he’s committed to running for president of the United States. Glenn introduced his friend by reminding listeners about the author’s courage in the face of controversy. “I believe Brad is one of the most courageous people out there. Because — he is in business. You’re selling a book. And what you said — I shouldn’t say what you said — because what you said was not controversial,” Glenn said. Some may recall the flak Glenn received following Thor’s fiery remarks about Donald Trump in his previous interview on...

    So I just stopped by the Corner blog at National Review Online to see their reaction to Trump's speech today. To my surprise, there wasn't a single post commenting on it. The NR writers spent the day posting about Brexit, and about Rubio's senate run, and about a picture of Trump they don't like. But not a word about Trump's speech. If that isn't proof that Trump hit a home run today, I don't know what is.

    Realville, as Rush often says, is where he lives. That’s a place without blinkers or rose-colored glasses. That’s actually where we all live, though some of us prefer to deny it. That is, until reality bites. Then our wishful thinking or willful ignorance dashes upon the hard rock of unforgiving reality. The crackup always smarts. Thus is the case with the 2016 presidential election. There’s Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. In other words, there’s Column A and Column B. That’s the choice. Column C is fairyland. Come November, tens of millions of voters will flock to the polls to choose...

    Civility Two years ago, Stephen Henderson won a Pulitzer Prize. I’ll let you decide what you think that says about the state of journalism, especially as you consider what he wrote late last week. Henderson, the editorial page editor of the Detroit Free Press (and a Facebook friend of mine, at least as I type this), has become increasingly hysterical in the past year - seeing racism behind almost every perceived societal ill and ascribing to conservative policymakers not just mistaken thinking but, invariably, an intent to hurt people. But his column of this past Saturday took the cake. A...

    Beck’s entire post reads: This won’t happen, nor should it. The time to defeat trump was in the primary. I have said since the beginning, if the GOP changes the rules to allow some trick, on ANY candidate it will lead to the end of the party and possibly to the kindling of a civil war, God Forbid. This will only cause chaos and more hatred. There are no good answers now for many Americans. Maybe 50% of Americans don’t want either, but the time to let your voice be heard was during the primary. How you vote is your...

    Here is a sentence I never thought I’d type: After days of prayer, reflection, and serious study of the possibilities, I am not going to run as an independent candidate for president of the United States. I gave it serious thought — as a pretty darn obscure lawyer, writer, and veteran — only because we live in historic times. Never before have both parties failed so spectacularly, producing two dishonest, deceitful candidates who should be disqualified from running for town council, much less leader of the free world.

    There is much anger, hostility, and protests against Trump. But Trump's problems are much larger than a group of protesters on the left. He is facing a HUGE upward battle against the elites in power, who will keep him out of office at all costs. Donald Trump views on trade, a border wall with Mexico, America-first policies, and protectionist positions place him in direct opposition with the plan for a North American Union and ultimately the New World Order. Trump is a vocal proponent of "the Wall" and threatening to change trade relations with Mexico, which Trump has alleged have...

Rubio has indicated in various Twitter spats over the past week that he’s behind Trump by default because there are no other good options to take down Hillary Clinton. But that’s not good enough for Beck. He wrote, “Can you have any credibility when you said one thing on the campaign trail and then the opposite after. Were you lying to us then or now Marco?”

    Daily Caller editor-in-chief and Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson is not happy with how Glenn Beck acted at the Facebook meeting for conservatives this week. In an interview, Carlson blasted the radio and television host, saying he was sucking up to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. "I went to that meeting expecting Beck to cry, rend his garments while quoting James Madison, but that's not at all what happened. He began the most extended assiduous suck-up I think I've ever seen a grown man commit. He acted like he was auditioning to be Mark Zuckerberg's manservant — it was awe-inspiring,' Carlson...

    Surprising no-one, Glenn Beck, after joining the recent conservative delegation to Facebook, has defended the social network and its progressive CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, while attacking fellow conservatives for being too demanding of the company. It’s unclear if he’s gunning for a role in their PR department in the wake of The Blaze’s financial difficulties, but even if he isn’t, it’s hard to tell the difference. He’s written a post on Medium as well as his own personal website, given an interview to TIME, and appeared on his own syndicated talk radio show to defend the social network.

    What ever happened to Little Ben Shapiro? The Daily Wire’s Ben used to be one of my conservative idols, battling against the name-calling, irrational social justice warriors and dropping conservative truth bombs. I looked up to him and believed in what he was doing. Not any more! Anyone who follows internet drama as closely as I do will have seen the change in Ben’s behavior. He used to be cool and sassy. People my age could relate to him. But he seems to have joined the anti-Trump Establishment conservative ranks and lost so much of what made him special to...

    What do Glenn Beck, Carly Fiorina, S.E. Cupp, Dana Perino, Zac Moffett (Romney Campaign), and Arther Brooks have in common?

    Against the backlash from Facebook being exposed for controlling content based on ideological views, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced he was going to meet with “conservative voices” to discuss their concerns. Glenn Beck subsequently announced his participation in this upcoming meeting. –SEE HERE –It’s all smoke and mirrors folks.  This PR ruse is about the most insufferable damage control amid years of behind-the-scenes political consultation is, well, silly.The control of Facebook and other social media platforms to push political narratives is well documented, and extends far beyond non-traditional social media.  Matt Drudge was talking about it last year (see here).  And...
