Glenn: The things that are going on in our country are impeachable offenses

The establishment-backed Thom Tillis emerged victorious in yesterday’s Republican primary in North Carolina. Glenn had favored the FreedomWorks and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) endorsed Greg Brannon in the race. Tillis will now face incumbent Senator Kay Hagen (D-NC) in the November’s general election. On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the establishment GOP’s victory in the state and reflected on the state of the Republican Party as it relates to congressional action and the future.

“So last night wouldn’t be exactly what I would call a banner night for the TEA Party,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “[Matt] Bevin [in Kentucky] is next. Now they’re going to target Bevin… You put money into the GOP. And what are they doing? ‘Mitch McConnell is the guy.’ Oh my gosh, I have never felt more betrayed in my life.”

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) appointed Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) to head a select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

“With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice,” Boehner said. “Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused and serious-minded as they come. His background as a federal prosecutor and his zeal for the truth make him the ideal person to lead this panel. I know he shares my commitment to get to the bottom of this tragedy and will not tolerate any stonewalling from the Obama Administration.”

Gowdy was first elected to Congress in 2010, and he has made a name for himself for not shying away from asking tough questions and getting to the bottom of the issues. For those who would truly like to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi that fateful night, Gowdy is a great pick. But Glenn believes that his selection could turn out to be a setup.

“I’m telling you, Trey Gowdy is in trouble. And here’s why I say this. Trey Gowdy was selected to run the Benghazi hearings for what reason? Why would John Boehner pick Trey Gowdy,” Glenn asked. “May I give you a hypothesis? I think John Boehner is doing it because it’s a win-win situation for John Boehner.”

The way Glenn sees it, these investigations will surely reveal crimes and cover ups that should come with severe punishment.

“The things that are going on in you’re country are impeachable offenses,” Glenn said. “This is not Monica Lewinsky… This is dangerous, impeachable stuff that we’re talking about… But nobody wants to do that… The American people don’t have the stomach for it… The people in Washington don’t have the stomach for it.”

So what will happen?

“Trey Gowdy is going to be the guy who’s leading this investigation, and he is going to go out like a pit bull, and he’s going to dig stuff up. And what did the White House already say? ‘This is an illegitimate investigation.’ ‘We’re totally fine with talking to somebody who’s reasonable, but he’s not even reasonable.’ Well, hang on just a second. Isn’t that what John McCain said about Ted Cruz [during the government shutdown],” Glenn asked. “The Republicans put Trey Gowdy in charge because… once this investigation starts to really dig things up, and the machinery turns on, and it needs somebody to grind, it won’t grind the GOP. It will grind the TEA Party. You mark my words: That’s what’s coming. That’s why [Boehner] did it.”

The GOP has proven it is not going to stand up for the TEA Party or the more conservative elements of the Republican Party. Glenn believes they have successfully painted the TEA Party into a corner, but this is not the time to compromise on principles.

“The GOP is not even standing for us. We’re alone… I’ve got to change my approach. We have to change our language. We have to go in a different direction because they’ve painted us in this corner, and they are very effective. We cannot compromise our principles. We cannot compromise what we believe in. But we can’t play the game that they have been playing,” Glenn concluded. “It only gets worse from here. I ask you to reflect. Think back in the last 18 months how many things have changed. How bad are things today compared to where they were 18 months ago… Where do you think we are in 18 months from now – especially if the GOP has the reins off them? Holy cow. Change your thinking. Change the world.”

    For a guy who stated he’s wasting his life on politics, Glenn seems to be more into it than ever. There are enough Obama haters in congress that would absolutely take a shot at any real chance for impeachment.

    Boehner picked Gowdy because Gowdy has the guts to go all the way with this. It was a GOOD pick; would Beck rather he have picked a RINO??

    I also think that Gowdy will garner a ton of name recognition from this, making him a force to be reckoned with outside the tea party. Isn’t this what we want? To get tea party pols into positions of power?

    Glenn, we can’t win them all. Tillis will be fine, and certainly 1000% better than Hagan. People we agree with 100% of the time are losing to people we agree with 85% of the time, and they will hopefully beat Democrats that we agree with 5% of the time. It’s not the end of the world if all Tea Party candidates do not win. Reid needs to be Minority Leader— PERIOD— so Pinochiobama cannot flood the courts with über-leftists on the courts the last two years.

    Hopefully Gowdy will get the truth our and the Tea Party will gain great credibility for being honest and wanting the truth going into the elections.

  • Anonymous

    Enough already! The election’s over. There were 6 candidates running, each backed by different factions, and one of those won decisively (according to the current rules). It’s time to get behind him and defeat Hagen/Reid/Obama and that won’t happen if purists stay home and pout. NO Republican is as bad as ANY Obama Democrat. As for Gowdy, he’s a big boy, and it’s doubtful he’ll suffer the fate of Ken Starr. He’s a good pick for what’s going to be a bruising fight.

    It is not about the tea party at all; it is about a constitutional government; the constitution, the law of the land; the peoples law; the law that governs the Elected and those appointed by the elected; The peoples laws; are those that won these elections going to abide by and defend the peoples laws; we all ready know that the Dimcrats don’t and wont; another question which must be answered do the American people really care or want their laws to be honored and obeyed and defended; at this time I regret to say I don’t think so; I think the American people are sheep being lead down the road of serfdom, slavery. not all mind you just the majority; which will lead to war in America some of us will not submit to serfdom.

    I’m a Tea Party Member since day 1, and until The Tea Party became a Caucus, it was doing just fine bringing PATRIOTS! back to their country.
    The Tea Party, was never meant to be a; “PARTY” it was meant to take us back to the original idea of; “THE FOUNDERS” and “THE U.S. CONSTITUTION”.
    The Tea Party should not be a reason to follow any specific person, it’s a reason To be a “PATRIOTIC” force to bring The U.S.A. back to it’s original roots.
    I wouldn’t vote for someone, because the “TEA PARTY CAUCUS” endorses that person, I “VOTE” for U.S.A. FIRST!
    I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BEEN HI-JACKED BY THE SOCIALIST / COMMUNIST PARTY!!!………….

    Time to vote 3rd party. Voting for a republican you don’t believe in is the same as voting for a democrat you don’t believe in. I know, I know, everybody says voting 3rd party is a wasted vote, or voting third-party is a vote for a democrat/republican. I contend that a vote for an establishment republican IS a vote for a democrat. The difference is only semantic. The only way to waste your vote is to give it to someone you don’t believe will faithfully represent YOU!

    A senate run by the current minority leader will be little different that the current Senate if all we do is provided him establishment cronies to back his play. Not interested. A third party Senator can back which ever side he feels is right, and isn’t subject to rep/dem party pressure. Since the current Senator Hagan is a democrat, a third-party Senator still removes one seat from the democrat leadership, thus it is NOT a wasted vote.

    We lost 2012, because 3 million stubborn Republicans stayed home and didn’t vote, because their favorite Primary Republican Candidate, didn’t win.
    They decided that it would be better to give Obama the majority again.

    It does not matter who wins the November elections.

    I hope that the people of NC don’t complain when Tillis proves himself to be a progressive. One would THINK that they would vote for a Constitutional minded conservative. Nope….just vote for another RINO and expect different results. I would say that is the definition of insanity, but in this case, it’s pure STUPIDITY.

    Hoping and praying that the people of Kentucky vote that lizard fossil (aka McConnell) out of office. If they don’t, expect MORE loss of freedom.

    We lost 2012 not because 3 million Republicans stayed home, but because the Democrats voted multiple times, dead people voted, people registered and voted in multiple states. Some precincts across the country reported 112% of the registered voters participated and every vote was for obama. Not one Republican challenged the vote count. We lost good people like Allen West because of this. It is hopeless now. Hoard rice and beans and ammo.

    You’re buying into the GOP BS game. They’re lying to people making them think that we MUST vote for a GOP member or we’ll LOSE.

    I’ve been a registered independent before it was popular to be one, and I’ve always voted for the person, not the party. I didn’t stay home for the 2012 elections because local elections are just as important. I plugged my nose and voted for Romney. Romney leans a bit to the left, but he is more reasonable than obama and wouldn’t take us over the cliff as quickly.

    One election rule I’d like to see changed is the “winner take all”. Some states have proportional votes for their primary elections and I think that is the fairest system. It should apply for the presidential electoral votes too. I’m tired of having leftist states like NY and California being the deciding factor.

    Thank you. I keep seeing the phrase “People stayed home and we lost.” And obviously when they say “we” they mean the “Republican Party”. When I say “we” I mean “we the people”. I couldn’t give a flying crap about the corrupt GOP. How many times do they have to betray “we” before people get over the GOP. It’s not about the frickn’ GOP. They turned their backs on “we the people” quite some time ago and view “we the people” as pawns, as a means to an end. I for one am done with the GOP because I am not insane. I will not keep voting for the ‘R’, and throw my vote away just because it is an ‘R’; expecting to get different results. I’ll vote for the best person and preferably one who disassociates from either of the corrupt progressive parties of privileged recognition.

Just because the establishment GOP claim them as theirs, he’s a grown and educated man, he can learn and form his own opinions. Don’t judge him too fast.

    Wrapped in the cloak of the corrupt political party masters to whom his registered, Yes, really. You actually think there would be a difference? Really? Do you think if the GOP ever retracted the affordable care act that they wouldn’t replace it with their own version of socialized medicine? Do you think the GOP is of a mind to enforce our immigration laws as opposed to offering amnesty? Do you think the GOP would ever be in favor of actual term limits? Do you think the GOP would actually stand against raising the debt ceiling? Do you think the GOP would defeat an unconstitutional bill, one that was doomed to eventually fail, by defunding the law, as would be within their power, after reassuring the members of their own party that they would? Because if history and the present is proof, I’m not seeing it.

    Well I can tell from your replies that you like to rely a lot on assumptions. You’ve implied I’m a democrat, while I am not. You claimed I’m not going to vote, which I am as I always do. You have claimed that I am discouraging people from voting, which I never have.

    You can’t seem to break your mind free of this two party prism. You think if it is not an ‘R’ or a ‘D’ that a person is not voting.

    I will vote. After I do, I, at least, will have the peace of mind on my conscience knowing I voted for someone because I consider them the best candidate, hopefully to work towards returning to an adherence to upholding and protecting the Constitution. I will have the peace of mind in knowing that I did not merely run a checklist of voting as a lemming for “one of the two” privileged parties. Only to get on the internet later on down the road and act surprised that they aren’t doing what they said they would do. Really?! Who’d a thunk it.
    So, I won’t cry, because I am no longer surprised by those who think only of party. It has been, and as it would seem, will continue to be our own demise.
    We’ll get another progressive Democrat or progressive Republican and the course of our country will remain predictably on the same course it has been.

    But one word comes to mind from our discussion. “Futility”

    That’s all well and good – please do – go out an take people to the polling place, talk to your neighbors and all that…. but the issue is we’re regaining these French Republicans again; how do you propone to steer them the right direction. When they win this election by stomping continuously on ANYONE that believes in our country’s core values…. what/who will be there to stop them? How do you stop an EO from becoming and its implementation? How are you going to fundamentally bend them to say the most ancient word in the known language; N-O?

    Yes, voting for a third party candidate, at this point in time, IS futile.

    But don’t worry. The adults who vote Republican in the general election will pick up your slack.

    Proportional is no solution because tge big states would still decide the election. The electoral college concept was actually quite brilliant. What I do think would help is limiting them to two consecutive terms. That could break the hold of money while skirting the 1st amendment issues of term limits. That and limiting their pay to the median income with oonly a 401k pension plan. Keith

    The more there are of us in the Rep party, the more we can bend it to our will. I don’t know if you remember when Reagan was in office, but a whole lot of the born again conservatives had had the Big RINO label on them the year before. That’s how RINOs are – malleable. They go which way the wind blows, which makes them useful (i.e., we can make them do our bidding, which we could not do if an evil Democrat held their seat.)

    A lot of the RINOs, like Boehner, were just struck dumb when Obama won, which made all Republicans, meaning conservatives, instant ‘racists,’ courtesy of Obama and Holder. RINOs want to be LIKED. Few are deep thinkers; all they want to do is go along to get along. Which plays into our hands when we have power.

    Always try to get a conservative elected, but if the RINO wins, vote for the dunce in the general election. RINOs can be manipulated, to OUR way of thinking (or at least voting.)

    If these are impeachable offenses let us go after them. Glenn Beck should understand that a third party right now means the loss for the Republicans in the next election. The tea party is a wonderful movement. But at this stage they can not get the white house. They will put Hillary in the white house.

    Until conservatives reject the Rove&Establishment’s criteria for candidates, we will continue to be told who our candidates are despite our best efforts. To Rove it is all about “who can raise the most money”. Tonight he was again on FOX pumping up Jeb Bush’s fundraising potential and how big donors have pulled away from Christie and are looking to another Bush. What Rove and the establishment don’t admit is that their fundraising criteria didn’t do us a twit of good during ’08 or ’12 when they hand picked McCain and Romney. All that money spent for naught. Flawed strategy.

    They are called the Democratic Party because their organization is called the Democratic National Committee. That’s their name.

    If you use google, you can do a search on “when did the democrat party become the democratic party” and it will auto-fill the field after the word “become”, if you have auto-fill settings enabled.

    Be careful what you stockpile, how you buy, and who you tell; if you’re right, I promise you, the prepper community is being documented and mapped for the supply caches they will become when UN blue-hats come to help us “keep the peace”.

    Do you remember the iconic scene in the original Red Dawn movie where the invading commander pries a gun from the hands of a dead man whose body was lying right behind a truck, upon whose bumper was a sticker that read, “You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands”?

    You’re right about everything else, imo.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Democrat in their district’s congressional race if the election were held today, while 37% would choose the Republican instead.”

    It appears to me that the established Republicans/RHINOS are no different than Democrats. Forget whether they are a Party or a Caucus, the established Republicans do not like them because the Tea Party folks want a Constitutional run government as we were founded to be and that our Forefathers and millions of other fought so bravely to establish and keep. Tea Party folks (generally) are people who love God and Country. The other parties only love themselves and are of the same progressive ideology.

    You will lose, it’s not the GOP that I’m listening to, IT’S THE NUMBERS!
    You have to admit that there are only TWO! strong parties, Republicans and Democrats, any other Party will only take the votes away from the stronger parties on either side.
    I’m sorry you don’t like that fact, (neither do I), but if you want to save your country, you had better understand that The Libertarian or even Independent can’t win, they are too new.
    The perfect example of that was RON PAUL, he was great and people loved him in both 2008 & 2012, but look back at how many votes he was able to get.
    His son who wears The Republican Brand, but is more like a Libertarian will do better than his father.
    Ron Paul was just stealing valuable votes needed to get our country back.

    Unfortunately I don’t think that there is any going back to that anytime soon. My personal opinion is that the USA is doomed. Georg Bushes presidency was probably the last chance to set things back into the right direction. George Bush only made things worse and was a complete failure. We have to many people now a days that are more concerned about safety nets, free phones and cheap labor.

    The nursing home in our precinct had 150 votes from them— all Obama. I am a republican clerk and was shocked that some one got in there— usually we have maybe 10 voters from the nursing home. I reported it and nothing was done. The absentee votes were tainted. We must have voter ID laws enforced and the states must cross check with other states and remove the duplicate voters. Obama got in with fraud.

  • TJB

    Agreed. If it’s all or nothing, we’ll probably get nothing. Let’s get the best we CAN and work from there.

    I understand your frustration, but not voting at all is the same as voting for a Democrat. I’m for what we can get, not what I want, and starting to work from there.

    I did vote for Greg Brannon…and am disappointed he lost.
    But come November…I will vote for Tillis.
    Romney wasn’t my heart’s desire..
    I’d have preferred someone more conservative..
    but frankly…Romney was the best of the bunch.
    and FAR more preferable to another Obama term..
    I figured that with Romney, at least we’d have another shot, and I do think Romney would have been better for the country.
    I doubt he could have been worst.
    I feared that with another O term, another shot wouldn’t be the case..
    The same applies to Tillis.
    Many Conservatives would not vote for Romney..and I’ll take this opportunity to Thank them for that…see what we got?
    Are you happy?
    Can’t help but mention the rampant voter fraud that also helped O stay in power…
    But where were the guts to call it?
    We’re in a street fight, folks, and you gather the gang you have willing to show up, and hold their feet to the fire..

    I think Tea Party supporters, if not all conservatives, should _not_ vote for establishment Republicans unless he is a strong conservative. Vote for judges, school board members, and other local positions, but _not_ these guys. Vote for no one, a third Party candidate you like (even if you know he won’t win), or just stay home. RINOs don’t deserve to win, period. To those who think a non-vote is essentially a vote for the Democrat (and I used to think that), I think the Republican Party will take to the same place as the Democrats will, maybe only slower.

    This diatribe does it, Glenn is off the wall. I love the Real News segment on The Blaze, as well as Wilkow and others, but I’ll pass on Glenn’s segments. I give him all credit for forming The Blaze and gathering the staff reporters. It is a good network on the whole. Glenn’s own segments, however, seem to have become limited to a narrow view.

    I support the Tea Party, in the original sense of the call for a new tea party by that fellow speaking off the cuff on the floor of the Chicago Exchange some years back. I also support the “establishment” Republicans. I was a “Rockefeller Republican” in my late twenties, but voted for Goldwater. We liked Rockefeller until he got his “Edifice Complex”.in Albany.

    I am atheist (not an Atheist), and am a bit annoyed (not offended) by Glenn’s attribution of all that is good to a belief in God. In a sense Glenn’s support of candidates is contrary to the very nature of our Constitution – the Federal system that recognizes the differences in the interests of the various states of this large Union. When I say Federal I don’t mean the current definition, the Federal Government, I mean the principle of a Federation of the individual states.

    The old phrase is “what is good for the goose is good for the gander”, that may apply to aquatic birds but it does not apply to the several states. I live in New Jersey, a state that has one of the highest population densities in the nation. But what is missed is that it also has some of the most empty areas in the nation. Teh population is concentrated in about a quarter of the land area of the state, the rest is farmland and wilderness. Governor Christie is doing a darned good job balancing the competing interests within the state – and reducing the increase in our taxes. He is not a RINO in this blue state, he is a defender of the interests of those of us who are for small government.

    But that doesn’t mean I’d support him for President, the President must also be the President for Montana.

    We have fifty states, and each is different. As conservatives we should support the candidates in each state that are the most in agreement with us but yet are electable in tha6 state. By advocating a strict list of qualifications for support the new Tea Party (the particular organizations using the name instead of the grass roots movement called a tea party) we deny the very nature of out Constitution – the difference in the interests of the states. The Progressives/Liberals have done that for many years, let us not fall into the same trap. The seventeenth Amendment was a killer, I’d be an activist for repeal if I were still mobile.

    After spending 40 years working in the main stream media, I retired and shed their left wing elitest ideology and started to base my views on facts, logic and common sense, all totally absent from the left. I have since worked on a couple of Republican congressional campaign staffs and volunteered my services for conservative causes. I am convinced that, once elected and getting a taste of the power and perks of their positions, nearly every politician’s main objective is to get re-elected at any cost. Term limits are the only answer.

    I think you’re mistaking this ‘progressive socialist fascist commie regime’ for a concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a very few. It’s called oligarchy, and technically, that’s what the U.S.A. has become… it’s not ‘progressive’ or ‘liberal’ or ‘socialist’… it’s PROFIT… When all of our elections go to the highest bidder, it no longer matters what WE THE PEOPLE want for our country, as ALL of our politicians are inherently corrupted. The MASSIVE amounts of money in our electoral system get us the best politicians money can buy… unfortunately, money can’t buy everything…

    Yeah, but they wrap themselves in the commonly valued perception of democracy as being justly equitable. Rather like a party implying divine endorsement by calling itself The Godly party.
    By calling the party of democrats the democrat paty, you strip them of the implication and reduce the term to just part of a title.
    It also infuriates the democrats no end.

    George Bush tried to keep The Middle East Terror at bay, and was doing well at it, he called it what it was; “EVIL” and Obama and his Administration opened the gate and let “EVIL” back out, while refusing to identify what “EVIL” looked like.
    While everyone was demonizing Bush, they weren’t paying attention to what Obama’s been up to.

    At times, I like the idea of infuriating them, I’ll admit ;)

    Still, I’m loathe to submit to the practice of theirs that I find most despicable: changing the names of things are ARE.

    While you may be right in all the things you’ve said, it may be of greater value (intellectually and politically, to say nothing of what younger generations learn from our practices) to focus on teaching what an ultimate democracy means, and why ‘republic’ (or democratic republic, or Jeffersonian Republic) is a refined form of democracy in which those who have something to lose have the chance to have a hand on the wheel, rather than essentially acknowledging that everyone should have a vote “because diversity of opinion is good”.

    After all, that central principle is one that (mis)guides our present immigration debate and much of radical racial politics already, and to cut it off at the root would be a clearly positive change, imo.

    Ignorance gets the wrong people elected. Little else. What is needed is a greater informed voter base that won’t sit home on primary days and a grassroots GOTV system to insure that those votes turn out!
    We also cannot fall prey to dividing our votes between two or more anti-establishment conservatives! This is a longstanding trick used to give the party’s insider choice the numerical advantage.
    Where there is a good candidate like a Greg Brannon, Libertarians need to register as Republicans in mass to vote for him. Independents need to do the same. Dont you think that even Democrats change their affiliation to vote for the most liberal candidate running on the GOP ticket and then vote Democrat in November? We cannot be divided and every vote counts!!!
    Yes, I know money is vitally needed by patriotic candidates for educational and organizational expenses. Another reason to focus our resources.

  • Krimsen King

    Yes, a more informed voter base would be nice… So would elections free from the MASSIVE CORRUPTING INFLUENCE OF MONEY… so would politicians that ACTUALLY REPRESENTED THEIR CONSTITUENTS rather than their highest contributors… Political party and ideology become IRRELEVANT when our elections are bought and sold. The money in our electoral system gets us the best politicians money can buy… unfortunately, money can’t buy everything ;)
