and methamphetamine is a nonviolent action, nonviolent. despite the fact that in 2013, last stats available, nearly 44,000 people died from drug overdoses in america. thousands more killed in automobile accidents. thousands more contracted aids and other diseases and are generally a huge drain on the american medical system all because people sell narcotics to make money. yet, those people, president obama puts forth deserve sympathetic treatment. of course, that is erroneous in the extreme. and many law enforcement agents are harshly critical of president obama's early release program. that will continue thousands more will be released. now, talking points knows the real reasons the president and other liberal americans do not want harsh punishment for drug-involved individuals. reason number one, the left firmly believes that police target african-americans more than whites in the
narcotics trade. therefore, the thinking goes the criminal justice system is racist. reason number two: many liberals want to legalize all drugs. they believe it's a personal choice and should not be punished by society. also president obama apparently thinks diverting drug involved individuals into rehab is a better solution than incarceration. the problem is rehab never works. unless the individual wants to get off drugs or alcohol. and many offenders, perhaps most do not. thus the whole exercise will accomplish little in the way of public safety. some convicts will inevident continually return to the drug life and they will cause a tremendous amount of damage. but here's the worst part of president obama's foolish policy. it sindz a message to young people to drug dealers, to drug users, that society doesn't believe this is a dangerous and immoral situation. when i was growing up in left town, new leavitt town, new
york, there was nothing worse than being a drug dealer. nothing worse. outcast in the neighborhood considered scum. now they are glorified in some places. the local dealer is considered are cool. the acceptance and promotion of addicted substances is a national disgrace. drug dealing is one of the lowest forms of human activity. it enslaves, kills, and harms people. yet, president obama is making it a priority to give folks who sell hard drugs leniency. awful. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from washington, charles krauthammer. and you say? >> well, i say the distinction has to be made first of all between hard drug -- between narcotics and selling marijuana, for example. also make distinction between users and dealers. and there is one other thing you have to take into
account, which is often when you get somebody saying well, he was just a user or pled guilty, they were pled down, they were dealing but the prosecutor decided either to get information to give them a plea bargain so it would look like it was only use. so i don't believe in blanket amnesty, blanket forgiveness for a whole class of people who are in jail. i do believe that if you want to do something like that and you think the laws passed in the 90's, incidentally under a democratic president are too democratic conian, a., you change them for the future and see whether your social experiment works or not, but, b, you do a case by case evaluation like parole. you might have gotten a the kid who got in the wrong gang who wasn't a dealer was a user or whatever, if there are good apples in there you release them but you have got to go -- i wouldn't release a whole class. >> okay, look, the stats in
federal prison less than 1% are in for use of any kind. less than 1%. >> i know. >> the stats in federal prison are hispanics are a greater proportion than blacks. so, a, this is driven by race with barack obama. i know it is i know it's race. the cops are hunting down inner city black dealers. they don't care about the white collar dealers. that's what's motivating this, charles. and you know it. >> unlike you i don't have the sense of psychiatric training and powers to i don't understand exactly why obama is doing it because i don't understand or i don't pretend to know i simply want to examineed relevant and the wisdom of the policy. if you want to reevaluate people for ho are in jail for crimes we now think should not have big mandatory sentences and that is the trend, then what you do is a case-by case examination. >> trend here. >> i agree with you about
the users and the plea bargainers are small numbers. in fact, we went over that last week and we agreed that the numbers that the left uses saying. >> totally bogus. >> kids just smoking weed. they weren't just smoking weed. >> are you going to tell me you don't think there is a racial element in this for president obama? are you really going to sit here and say that? >> i think some of the left makes that argument. i'm simply going to say when you tell me what's happening inside of obama's head, can i tell you that it's not a matter. it's what comes out of his mouth. >> in a room with people who who speak intimately and i still don't know. >> is drug dealing an evil thing in your opinion. >> absolutely. >> it's a decision to sell narcotics is, it not? is it not a decision. >> it's also a decision to purchase narcotics. >> that's true but the person who buys it i have plenty more sympathy for than the person who sells it. >> so do i krauthammer and
o'reilly believe it's evil act to sell narcotics and a decision to do so and decision made on profit. now, rehab, you are the psychiatrist although you are trying to put that in my ball. i would never be one. when you are in rehab you cannot be cured of anything no matter what rehab you are in unless you want to be, you are motivated; is that correct? >> well, did i treat quite a few methadone addicts when i was or heroin addicts we had on methadone that was the treatment of choice in those days. the odds of getting off are very small. the key indicators hough is going to succeed or not is who wants to do it. >> that's right. but sometimes the choice of incarceration or rehab such that it pushes some people into successful rehabilitation. >> well, that's why i think you have to have a case-by-case. you can't do blanket.
>> okay. judges are taking and here in new york city a police officer was killed, murdered by an alleged dope dealer who was put into a rehab situation which he laughed at and went out and shot the cop. all right. i'm putting the rehab, forced rehab drug dealer thing at about 10%, 15% who really want to get off it. that's what i'm putting it at based upon police reporting and doctors that i know in the rehab business. i will give you the last word. >> well, that's a good reason to triage. that's a good reason to spend time, manpower, and energy not releasing on the basis of the law that was used to incarcerate but on the basis what are the odds this is a good apple or recidivist that will be back on the streets. if you do that i think it's worth of investment. >> the guy who shot the cop 28 arrests and the judge gives him rehab. 28 arrests. >> i think the wrong decision was made. >> yeah. but that's the way it's always going to be if this is the alternative. you go to prison, you go to
rehab. the liberal judge also take rehab all day long and have more dead cops and more dead people. >> but, bill, unless you are going to give life imprisonment. they are all going to get out am sont point. >> let them get out at 60 do less. >> you think we should have mandatory drug sentence any drug dealer gets out at 60? >> i would give them federal mandatories of so and up and depending on the weight of the drug. i feel the drug dealing is one of the worst crimes on this planet. that's what i believe. >> i agree with you on that but i don't agree with your prescription. >> my prescription. you take them off the street in every town that's happened to crime rate has gone down, including here in new york city. i have got to go. next on the rundown, factor investigation website taking money to smear americans. wait until you hear this. and later, factor exclusive, high school football coach suspended for praying after games. he will make his case in the no spin zone up ahead.

ms. simone made their statements on television, there were petitions on the net to have them fired those petitions can be found on change.org a for profit website that takes money, then posts and promotes actions against individuals like that. forbes magazine says it is pressuring p.e. politicians, corporations or others with a public shame campaign, unquote. just now from washington laura ingraham and here in new york city juan williams. it's come to this, juan. >> it's awful. >> websites taking money to destroy people's reputations they both put it in
another -- ms. simone as a kid there are rules you have to obey. we have this website petition signed more than 30,000 people they should be fired. you say? >> what was truly appalling to me was a racial aspect we need people on television who speak for the black perspective and not what white people want to hear or what might people are saying. these said to to me totally reasonable that the policeman's actions seem violent and they want top know more and cannot excuse someone not obeying the rules in school'. put in a position either you speak poor all black people. >> not speak for all black people. either you say what we want you to say you are a puppet. you are black and you didn't see anything wrong with it. you go, laura. >> there is no tolerance. change.org, it all sounds really noble and wow isn't that great, everyone has a voice.
supportive community and all be able to mobilize. all sounds great. the bottom line here it is fomenting without a doubt uninformed and judgment mental point of view before all the foockets are in. on behalf of the students in the room are interviewed and as you both know, we had had 100 students engaged in a walkout in support of the sheriff deputy who by all accounts is a fairly exemplary member of the community, a coach, someone that the students sought out when they had problems. there is a loft other things that were probably going on in the background here. i don't know the full story. but for them to seek out, to destroy don lemon and his co-host, this is just a typical left-wing. >> she was on "the view." >> haranging. >> raven simone. >> on "the view," exactly. >> this is where it is going, juan. freedom of speech in this country is under attack. it's under attack primarily from the left. and the facts are there. the left does not want to hear dissenting opinions and
if you put them out, they will try destroy you. they have tried to destroy me for 19 years. i know this firsthand. and it's the left. >> well, and let me just tell you something, the left has tried to destroy me. i am going to tell it you something. i think there are people who do direct mail just like this glowp direct mail isn't what we're talking about though. >> think will demonize anybody. guess what, then this change.org group, they said at the end of this email, contribute money. so we can continue to do it. >> we want money. >> not only do they take money upfront, you have got to give them money to get it on and they want more money. >> use your name to exploit this. >> all right, laura, go ahead. >> this is a left wing shaming interesting. seek to shut down dissenting opinions. we see it happening with the speech codes on college campuses with the changing of the pronouns. if you say something that is even slightly objectionable to one person, you are a hater, you are branded as disloi to the sense of community on campus.
this is all a big scam. we although it's going -- all know it's going on. they don't want real debate. they want it the way they want it that's what we have all come used to on college campuses. >> that is the beginning of totalitarian society. every totalitarian society started there all right, laura, juan, thank you. good segment. more trouble from the black lives matter crew. when there l. this group be accountable for its anarchy? and then glenn beck on the republican debate chaos. beck has a solution. and watters versus cornell university. it's getting kind of

factor follow up seeing'' tonight, black lives matter the radical political group is rooming around the country disrupting public events. >> black lives matter. >> yes they do. and i'm going to talk a lot about that in a minute. [ that was not the first time black lives matter has confronted hillary clinton. with with us former nba basketball star jalen rose author of the book "got to give the people what they want." mr. rose on espn and outspoken guy. all right. i have said that black lives matter crew is a hate group because of their -- not all
a of them but a number of them calling for violence against american police officers. that has not been repudiated by the black lives livment where am i wrong on that one. >> you are dead wrong on that one. it's not a black movement but a movement to inspire freedom and justice for black lives lost. did you know every 28 hours a black man, woman or child is murdered by police and/or vigilante law officials. this is a real glend where did that stat come from? >> it's an absolute fact. >> the stats that we have is that the african-americans killed by police are infans at the infan as it. less than 1% result in any violence.
so your stat and my stat are like the parting of the red sea here. all right? let's advance the story and say when you have a group that says dead -- we want dead police officers as this crew did in new york city i'm not justifying the owe bretion or killing can of anyone for that matter. i respect law officials. as a matter of fact, we should stop the world on its axis and pay emt, firefighters, teachers, double in a country that values sports and i know i work in the sports industry. these are the people that become the heart beat of what we do. so i'm not here to advocate violence but to bring awareness to so many lives that have been lost. >> then why can't people like you, other african-americans who are concerned about violence toward your community. why can't you do it in a peaceful way as dr. king promoted naacp, there is a lot of organizations that
are in business to promote justice for african-americans. they are not fringe violent organizations that you see interrupt political rallies and do pretty much what they want to do. >> dr. king actually said that. i'm glad you brought it up. a riot is the voice of the unheard. that sometimes when protests get taken too far. a lot of times they are majority peaceful. but when the camera is on is when they show the african-americans a lot of times acting unruly. >> well, i don't think that does the cause any good. so the like you jamie foxx the actor. tarantino the director said that police were murderers in a general statement here in new york city and here is what mr. fox said last night. go. >> quentin tarantino you are a boss. you ever absolutely amazing. keep speaking the truth and telling the truth and don't worry about none of the haters. i will let you know that right now. >> so tarantino, he is in a lot of trouble. all the police organization
os across the country are boycotting us and you think he should be in trouble. >> absolutely. because i do not agree with the fact that all police are murderers. i think will are some rogue individuals with guns and badges that have taken their job way too far. >> i think everybody would agree with that there is an an abusive element to every organization. in police you have a responsibility because you have a gun and you have power. >> absolutely. >> there are bad people and they should be dealt with. but when you have a guy than tarantino. jamie foxx is a big guy in the black community. he goes out there and says it's okay. call the cops murderers what do you think about that? >> jamie is a friend of mine. somebody that i really respect. just because he supports quentin that doesn't mean he is -- >> -- do you respect that statement. >> i don't agree with that statement. >> how can you respect a statement that is actually saying hey, you are the boss go, out and call cops murderers? i don't understand this. >> you know what i learned to do is judge people by true actions because sometimes your thoughts and words don't lead to your
actions. i believe comes out she is not taking questions which you do and that's what you respect. true stories and flagrant opinions from center court and i think it's very well you give different perspective and i appreciate what you do in your commentary. >> thank you. >> as the factor moves along this evening, glenn beck on the republican contenders revolting on the debate format. should they be doing that? watters has cornell university in an uproar. >> would you grant us permission to interview students if they grant us permission to do the interview? >> not on campus at this time. >> we hope you stay tuned to those reports. another day, and i'm still struggling with my diabetes. i do my best to manage.

city. why the sudden angst? you are doing this eight years and audit will sudden at the end of the season they hit you, why? >> it came from a compliment that somebody came and watched our game for the first time beginning of the year and they said it was really awesome and that we were doing a good thing and they wanted to know is this even legal now? >> where did that comment come from? is it in the paper. >> came from one of the administrators that saw the game and went to our high school principal. so. >> an administrator from another school. >> they wouldn't tell me who it was. >> discussing what you did after the game? >> before this you didn't have any problem with the school district or your own principal? >> no. none whatsoever. >> you don't prost will pros wil he advertise. >> they show up. and one of the things that the other teams actually our

sure. if you pray, we are going to fire you. that's just explicit religious discrimination it violates the first amendment. it violates federal employment laws. this is a good guy. this is the kind of coach you don't want to get rid of. loves young men. does incredible job inexplicable what's happened. >> when you say it's inexprick cable. there must inexplicable. mr. must have been a reason what watt the reason. >> they think this is the reason. >> the school board. >> the district from the superintendent. they said that he is not allowed to ever visibly show any religion or he will be fired. so they said. >> so you can't wear a cross around your neck? >> that's exactly what it would mean. it would mean a jewish teacher couldn't wear a i don't mean i don't mean can couldn't wear -- you have all kinds of violations from what they are saying. >> in case law this has been proven to be a loser for
this school district, right? >> i think so. they are mixing up when a coach takes position and orders the kids to pray or leads prayer. >> you can't coerce. >> and that's what they're missing. >> and you can't favor one religion over another. you are not saying christian you have to be episcopal. >> i don't even mention the word god actually. they won't sit down and talk with us. i think we can settle this and take care of this. >> well, when the legal bills start to mount, then they will. >> i hope so. >> so you guys are going to file, right? >> they are not going to give us any choice it doesn't look like. my hope is that somebody on the school board is going to say this is nonsense. let's get this thing taken care of. >> keep us posted guys, thank you for coming in. >> thank you, sir. >> glenn beck on republican presidential ♪song: "that's life"

rare. >> anderson cooper forgot all about foreign policy so i wasn't that jazzed about that debated. i think the republicans should pull back a little bit and say, look we want a fair forum. and if it isn't fair, we are going to make that known. cnbc got destroyed on this. >> absolutely destroyed. >> big winner was the fox business network. >> whatever. they come up tuesday and it will be obviously a much more thoughtful debate than the cnbc thing. i don't like when candidates complain about hard questions, beck. >> i don't either. i don't think they were hard questions. one of the questions was fantasy football for the love of pete. >> they got mocked asking those things. >> i know. >> and they should have. >> why waste that time? we wrote a lettery from "the blaze" today offering to do the ninth debate in february. we would like to do it in a
very, very different way. first of all we are all almost digital. this would be one that would appeal to the millennials. it would go, you know, all digital all online. we also have network, radio, and television that we could cover. but what i want to do is i want to bring people and i say like because i haven't asked him but people like peter teal or eloan musk to ask questions people you glenn beck would moderate it and i hope you get it. >> bring people that are going to ask intelligent questions. >> i will come in disguise wild bill hitchcock. >> there is this phil. >> from long island. >> you got the little snow thing going down. it isn't snowing yet, beck, it's november 2ened.
>> in texas, it's crazy. >> it's not snow. that's a fraud right there right in the back. totally fraudulent. >> absolutely real, bill. >> no, it's fraudulent. >> look, you don't need that gimmick to sell the book. it's a good book. >> you don't need the gimmick to sell the book. go down to miami and get your shorts, you could sell a book that way. good book. you don't need the phony snow and the church. you don't need it it. >> change the background, please. >> tell me why you wrote this book. >> i wrote this boocket, actually, partly because of you, bill. every year you do the war on christmas and you talk about how bad it's getting and about four years ago my kids were -- they only wanted to talk about that stupid elf on the shelf. and santa claus over the christ child. and our christmas concerts have become winter concerts and santa it has become completely about the mall. i thought i either could become a grumpy old man like bill o'reilly or i could -- or i could do something different and go at a
different direction and say how can i -- how can i refashion santa and make him a messenger of christ that points to christ? and so this is kind of almost a little way like a ben herr. it covers the birth and death of the christ child. it covers the real saint nicklaus but my santa character is unlike any other santa character that you have ever met. how does he become immorality and what does it mean? >> so what i'm getting of that is that you have santa in a chariot like ben herr with the whip, whipping around the roman. >> you don't have to read it now, bill. >> damn. >> i like the book, beck. i read a little of it today. the immorality nic -- nicholas. beautiful cover when it's winter out, beck.
