When one moment changes history

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Last week, the eyes of the nation were firmly fixed on Senator Rand Paul as he spent more than twelve hours on the Senate Floor filibustering the nomination of CIA Director John Brennan. Sen. Paul made his stand in order to call attention to the claim by Attorney General Eric Holder that the President of the United States could, under the right circumstances, order a U.S. citizen assassinated on American soil without a trial. The filibuster prompted Holder to change his tune on the extent of the President’s powers, and Sen. Paul ended his filibuster shortly thereafter. And as important as the issues of rights, Presidential power, and drones on American soil are to the American people, Glenn focused his show Monday on something else he saw happening during Sen. Paul’s filibuster: the death of the GOP.

Last week, Glenn saw a turning point for the country. For the first time in decades, conservatives are on the brink of a solution to the cancer known as progressivism that has infected the GOP since Theodore Roosevelt. Through his actions on the Senate floor, Rand Paul stood up for the values and principles of freedom and united others who hold those values sacred. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, are just a few of the Senators, many of them elected to office through the efforts of the Tea Party, who stood with Sen. Paul for those twelve hours.

Perhaps more importantly, establishment GOP Senators like Lindsey Graham and John McCain spoke more in their absence than in anything else they could have done. While Sen. Paul was championing the Constitution until he could no longer speak, they dined with the President. And in the days that have followed, they have criticized Rand Paul, ridiculed his efforts, and mocked him at almost every opportunity.

The lines between the conservatives who stand for freedom and the progressives in the GOP has never been clearer.

Glenn compared it to the famous “Crime against Kansas” speech, a fiery condemnation of slavery, when anti-slavery Senator Charles Sumner was beaten on the floor of Congress. Sen. Sumner made the mistake of insulting another member of Congress, Sen. Butler, whose nephew proceeded to beat Sumner until his cane broke.

But despite predictions he would die, Sen. Sumner ended up returning to finish his anti-slavery speech three years later. That speech would help form the platform of the new Republican party.

While Glenn said that not everyone agreed with him that Sen. Graham’s and Sen. McCain’s insults were similar to the beating Sen. Sumner took for his speech, Glenn believed there were parallels.

Glenn explained that the new Republican party that emerged after Sumner’s speech not only helped end slavery, but within six years they controlled the branches of government. Sen. Sumner’s speech helped change the course of history.

Glenn said that America now has a unique opportunity to have a third party rise to prominence for the first time since the Republicans gained power so many years ago. But it must come from the bottom up, as individuals must continue to stand for their principles and values rooted in the Constitution and continue to support the candidates that share those values.

Senator Rand Paul’s speech could be the moment that changes history once again.

    During the German elections of the early 1930′s, Adolph Hitler and the Nazis never got more than 37 percent of the vote. There were several elections held and the Nazi’s topped out at 37 percent.
    So how did they come to power? Because the opposition split their vote amongst ten other parties. Against the Nazis, the Germans had the Social Democrats, and the Conservative Party, and the Communist Party, and the Farmers Party, etc. etc. 
    You can read about it here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_federal_election,_July_1932

    If the right wing in America wants to split their votes amongst the GOP, the Tea Party, the Libertarian Party, and whatever movement you dream up next week, then go right ahead. The Democrats are already planning to help fund the Tea Party in future elections because they see the value in splitting the right. You can read a little about that here:

    I for one cannot wait for it to happen, because I just don’t see the GOP attracting women voters, Latinos and Asians until the entire Glenn Beck/Tea Party wing is kicked out or leaves. Just one look at the crazy posts in the comments section of this web site shows what I am talking about.  So get behind Rand Paul,  see ya later, good riddance. Karl Rove and Johm McCain have got it right, the real reason the GOP lost the last election and the one before that, is that the GOP has become identified with The Crazy. Beck is a poster child for this, one week he declares the GOP dead, the next week he is interfering in GOP primaries like Lindsay Graham’s, like he still thinks he is a GOP kingpin or something even tho he stabbed the GOP in the back. Get off the fence and GTFO Glenn, you coward, and then do us all sane people left in the GOP a favor, keep your nose out of our primaries.

    It is a dire state of affairs when political parties are defined by the stuff and evils that people desire.

    If someone created a party called “The Right Thing”.  The party will be vilified, attacked from all angles and mocked, with the general consensus being: how do you define right, my right or your right or do you believe in fairy tales and some spooky white man in the clouds.  Even the name would be subject to ridicule as people would define “right” as a direction, forgetting the definition of “correct”, “proper” and “do what we should do”.

    Anyone who tries to do “the right thing” becomes a target for those swimming in manure to drag them back in with shouts of: “judgmental”, “self-righteous”, “holier-than-thou”, “bigot”, “hater” and so forth.

    Sad.

    McCain is a Total Sellout, he does not represent what the Republican Party is about, he is a Democrat in Republican’s Clothing…  You may not agree with me, but if you support him then you are Selling Out America Too!  You are not looking at how he votes on the Senate Floor on  a regular basis, he does do some votes on the Republican Side but that is his Dog & Pony Show Antics to Fool You (and by your comments it has worked)…

    Glenn Beck once again is lying to his ignorant audience.
    Holden never claimed that the President could target US citizens on US soil.  Holder’s initial answer was incomplete, fueling the crazies like Beck to fill in their own answers, which turned out to be completely false accusations and assumptions.
    All Paul did was hold up real business in order to score a couple tea bagger points and score some tv time instead of trying to work on real problems on the hill.

    That being said, I hope that the crazy right starts up a third party in order to further split the right’s vote.  Glenn and his crazy followers have helped the Democrats make wonderful strides in regaining control of the House.  Keep up the good work.

    Well, this is what you have created, isn’t it? Beck has you stooges convinced there is another political party called “The Establishment Republican Party”.  It is no longer the same thing as whatfever this third party thing backstabbing Beck wants you to join one minute, or help him stab Republicans in the back in their own primaries in the next.  I voted for McCain numerous times because, unlike  Beck, who was snorting coke when other men his age were serving their country, John McCain is an example of the kind of man we need for president: a war hero who gave everything for his country short of his life, and a man willing to work with the other side without running around with his hair on fire shouting “Muslim!” and “Communist” and “FEMA CAMPS!”  every chance he got to make a fool of himself.  If you and Beck don’t want to be part of a political party that seeks to represent a broad group of people who wamt good fiscal management and a strong national defense, you need to join this new”Code Pink” party with Beck and anti-defense Paulbots.  The sooner you nuts GTFO of the GOP, the faster we can start re-buliding the GOP so it can appeal to women, Latinos and other minoritiies. We need to kick you hate-filled religious kooks the hell out.

    Your comment only exposes your personal ignorance of what Holder did actually say in a letter to Rand Paul. This letter was EXTREMELY ambiguous, and did in fact, appear to say that the President could use drone strikes on American citizens on American soil.

    After asking for clarification for over a month with no response, Paul’s actions were definitely justified. Additionally, the White House let this go on for nearly 13 hours, without a single word until the next day.

  • Anonymous

    Another left winger, blind and ignorant to the corruption and lies flowing from the White House. It wasn’t what Holder (not Holden) said, but what he wouldn’t say. It is the actions that have been taken by this administration via executive orders and power over reaching including, but not limited to the drone strikes already occuring outside the US. The refusal of this president and Eric Holder to say that an American could not be killed on American soil without a trial should be a wakeup call to all Americans, but not you obedient sheep. You have yet to figure out that they speak lies out of one side of their mouths, while progressing a communist agenda forcefully with every move they make. Take off the blinders and actually take a look at what has been done to this country in the last 5 years. Not that I think you actually will. I hear the deluded sheep everyday being interviewed quoting lies fed them about how bright and cheery things are and what a wonderful job the POTUS is doing. Especially dumb is Nancy Pelosi’s latest fawnings about how he’s been SO accomodating and respectful of Republicans since he’s been president and how he’s tried so very hard to work with them……?????I agree….she is existing in an alternate universe as are the rest of you. I just wish you’d go live in Cuba and enjoy your communist government and let us have our Republic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You’re completely and utterly clueless. If there was even an iota of truth in your belief, McCain or Romney would be President and not Obama. “The proof is in the pudding” as they say. It’s really amazing to me that you think Beck’s views are the problem, and completely disregard the FACT that the last 2 GOP Presidential candidates are the people you appear to support. THEY LOST! Let that sink in. A line has been drawn in the sand, people like you have a choice to make, riding the fence isn’t going to cut it anymore. Either you’re all-in collectivism, or you’re all-in constitutionally based individual liberty. Many of us have woken up to what’s going on, and we will no longer tolerate selling our liberty away for the latest fashionable collectivist idea.

    The women voters that I know…stand with Rand. We stand with freedom. We stand for freedom against big government that try to meddle in our lives and reduce our liberties. While I don’t always agree with Glenn Beck, he is right, we are not standing with McCain who isn’t standing for principles, but schmoozing with the President while ridiculing his colleagues. So, if anyone can do us a favor and quit screwing up our country..it’s people like Karl Rove. The new wave of minority and women voters for the Republican party will stand with Cruz, Rubio, and Rand. They aren’t the “crazy”. They see what this biased media and sell out administration is doing to our country and they’re standing for a change. Get a clue. Turn off MSNBC and take a stand for what is right.

    What we should be looking at for guidance is the numbers Ron Paul got in the last election. And the number of reg. Republicans who did not vote. Like others have said.We lost with what we or should say since I am an Ind. now. I checked out of the Rep. party when DHS was formed. Plus the spending Bush did was crazy in my view.

  • Anonymous

    I had this same view of McCain until this filibuster. I was angered to see McCain dining with the POTUS(lavishly on our $ with the sequester in effect) and not supporting R.Paul. We all know the president was blowing hot air up you-know-where and play acting, probably specifically to keep them from joinging the filibuster. He’ll stab them in the back in the end and tell the MSM that he attempted to work with Repulicans as he works around Congress to further his agenda.McCain has been corrupted. He could still come around but after this, I no longer trust him and many feel the same. We saw clearly where his loyalties were.

    Laughing,
    I don’t mean to be rude but it is clear that you are giving talking points and don’t know the story.The man’s name is not Holden it is Eric Holder. And he DID say “Under the right circumstances”He continued to dance around the question even when asked to clarify. And asked if he had the right with no imminent threat. He answered that he did though he couldn’t think of a reason he would. Then mentioned things like Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Bush did use it for 9/11 but that IS EXACTLY what imminent threat is. So he used a legal use as back up for an illegal use and made the president’s yes men (like you) say “see yes he can”.

    Get the votes, and if you can’t, have all your lying cronies run the polling centers and rig the votes in crucial states. Encourage casting multiple votes via bsentee ballots and voting for relatives including deceased ones.Crash the planes carrying all the military votes and what military votes do make it to the states, have same cronies hide or destroy the bags so those votes aren’t counted. Have voting machines default to Obama. When it’s brought up that there is corruption with the vote yell racism and call those saying anything ridiculous. Say things like “That is offensive” so they will be intimidated and back down.  Yeah, this potus won the election??? I think not.

    I have not seen a single prosecution, arrest or proof of anythng like what you allege. It seems what you really want is some way to explain to yourself that you lost. The real truth is, you lost. Obama won by five million votes,  and the reason had nothing to do wth voter fraud, and everything to do with the GOP being just too damned extreme.  The daily Talk Radio barrage against illegal immigrants, the stupid rape comments, Romney telling everyone he hated the “47%”, that’s what cost you the election. Get some comon sense, man.

    I’m sorry, but the peron I side with in this is John McCain, Once again, the President’s job is to protect the American people. If someone was building a bomb and therre was danger law enforcement personnel could be killed attacking the bomb building site, damned right the President should use drone. Cut all the pearl-clutching church lady paranoia, it’s just a plane without a guy in it, and there are circumstances where one might be used to save lives.

    Americans are killed by the government without a trial all the time in America, you idiot, and for the same reasons: if a police officer thinks his or other’s lives are in danger, he gets to kill you.

    If a terrorist in the US was in the act of committing an attack on US citizens, would it be OK for a cop to shoot to kill the terrorist?  How about an FBI agent?  A CIA agent?  How about an MP? An MP from a helicopter?  What about a drone?  Where do you draw the line?

    I don’t think Americans are concerned about being killed by drones.  I don’t even think terrorists are worried about getting killed by a drone in the US, especially when NOT committing terrorism like while having a cup of coffee.  Americans generally think the technology has been used to effectively to diminish a terrorist network abroad.  People that worry about being killed by drones while going about their day to day business are the same people that think the government planned 911 or is manipulating the media or any number of ideas based on cognitive biases that distorts judgment.  

    While the extent of use of drones is a fair question, Paul got to the bottom of a concern most people don’t have.

    bankrupt.  I actually blame the American people for what is happening
    in America.  They bought cheap goods from other countries and thus
    because America couldn’t compete the businesses just packed up, lock,
    stock and money and left America.  The people deserve to lose their jobs
    over this.  Ross  Perot told us.  Now that the jobs have left, we must
    resort to borrowing money from other countries.  When we can no
    longer pay our debts to them, they will come over here and take our
    land and homes.  !n the 1917 era of Weimer, Germany, they were in the
    exact same shape as America today and they had to use German
    soil and homes as collateral until they paid their debt back.  Could
    happen here.  Buy American.  Keep what jobs we have left.

     Cops shooting armed felons is legal response to an OBVIOUS immediate threat when they are shot at. Dropping bombs on someones house where you SUSPECT there are IEDs and bombs being made in the basement is far different. They have to have such proof of it which means have had access to the site to determine if in fact the alleged bomb building was going on – they could then have arrested the culprits – no need to bomb the family, and neighbors as collateral damage.

     The tripe you believe was spewed was the twisted words of the media.  They gladly took parts of speech out of context and sadly the rape comment was not explained in the best way it could have been.  You can not base your decision on one Talk Radio barrage as you call it.  Of course, the arrests and charges were not filed – the democrats would not let that happen to darken their image. 
    Truly the democrats won because the GOP voters were outnumber by those that believe they are due entitlements for some reason and others who have been taught collective thinking and fail to question the true motives behind what someone says or does.  They listen only to certain people who promise them the rose garden and are so inept they cant see the thorns thrown at them by the very same people.
    The results of their non-thinking is coming soon within the hidden taxes, devaluation of the dollar, higher consumer prices and more imposed upon them and us by the “Great One” who promised Change.

    Glenn Beck doesn’t know what any ism is, let alone progressivism. Ron Wyden
    stood with Rand Paul during the filibuster. Senators Jeff Merkley, Pat
    Leahy and Bernie Sanders all voted against Brennan citing many of the
    same concerns raised by Paul. Van Jones praised his work. Progressives
    were the only group supporting the libertarian and it just goes to show
    how much neocons and neoliberals have in common.

    Another note, there isn’t anyone in the GOP with the integrity or mental fortitude of TR.

    Refer to the closures of city run hospitals: e.g.: NYC, Boston. When those treated in the city owned hospitals didn’t pay their bills, collection was done by a political bureau in city, or state, government. A lot of bills simply disappeared. Long term the city run / owned hospitals went bankrupt and the taxpayers were then liable. The Federal government is doing something similar today with the debt and deficit. However, the people won’t care until there is a real fiscal crisis that produces physical hardships. And there will be neither accountability nor responsibility, but the taxpayers will pick up the costs. No civil war, no throwing the rascals of either party out, only gradual grinding down of spirit by survival induced serfdom.

    Another stupid statement by a complete moron. Anti-defense Paulbots? So, you believe we should send our troops to other countries to protect their borders, but leave our borders open. That is EXACTLY what is happening, idiot. Our southern border is a joke, but we can put thousands of troops on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    The faster you can rebuild the GOP to appeal to women, latinos and other minorities? So, you kick out all the women and minorities to rebuild to appeal to women and minorities? You are a complete fool.

    Man, you are one dumb M F er. The NDAA is as communist as it gets, holding US citizens without Due Process. The difference that morons like you can not see is that an armed police officer has the ability to subdue a “suspect.” A drone can not do that, it can only kill a suspect. Police officers have rules about the use of their guns, a drone has no rules and only one outcome is possible. It is quite obvious that you lack critical thinking skills, so do everyone here a favor and just off yourself, dunce.

     Don’t forget that one district in Florida had 150% of registered voters vote – Obama taking the vote. …. and in some areas of other states – Philadelphia is one, where  95-100% of voters turned out (and voted for Obama) when usually it is 1/2 – 2/3?

     So William, since your post is not tagged onto one of mine, there is no way to determine what you are referring to.  If you want a reply, please tag  your question  to the related post.

    There is a thing called the bomb squad.  Also well trained military personnel.  I feel more sorry for the idiot trying to build the bomb.

    Police officers have to go through an extensive round of questioning by internal affairs, the local prosecutor, the captain of their precinct, the press, and a few other parties just for putting one bullet in into one person’s flesh.  They don’t get to run around shooting people at their own behest, but instead with their badge on the line every time they pull the trigger.  Stop trying so hard to sound smart.

    After seeing McCain and Graham’s reaction to Paul’s legitimate questions, I can clearly see why the GOP is so out of touch with us. They completely missed the point and looked like ignorant idiots. That isn’t too hard for them and a lot of other old line Republicans. Hopefully they and their progressive agenda will soon go the way of the dinosaurs. The Libertarian Party really is the future for those who love liberty.

    Your post is full of errors and HUBRIS.

    For one thing, you say: “Romney telling everyone he hated the “47%”…”  is a flat-out lie. YOU are the hateful one. Gov. Romney does NOT “hate” people–not even *******S like you.

    And for another thing:

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/gop-legally-barred-from-fighting-vote-fraud/

    Article quote:
    “Voting machines suspiciously defaulting to Barack Obama? Buses loaded
    with strangers appearing at polling stations? Even ballots turning out
    100 percent for one candidate in precinct reports?
    In short, suspicions of vote fraud?

    That’s too bad, because a race-based consent decree negotiated by
    Democrats against the Republican National Committee a generation ago
    still has tied the RNC’s hands, and GOP officials could be cited for
    contempt – or worse – if they try to make sure American elections are
    clean.”

    There are some people who just seem to be incurable ignoramuses It’s almost as if they pride themselves on drawing conclusions and forming opinions based on little or no facts and a lack of logic. This one is – well, you know… LOL

    Why should anybody listen to you or give your rants any credence, when all you do is insult people and you cannot spell worth a damn.

    P.S. That’s a rhetorical question (hence, no question mark at end.) Please don’t waste our time and energy “replying.”
