Letter to Members of Parliament

Members of the Conservative Party,

Yesterday, Parliament experienced the largest rebellion from Tory Members since Prime Minister Cameron took office. Despite the potential of facing critical consequences for opposing the party line and pressure through the most stringent instructions from your party on how to vote, you stood your ground and insisted on voting in a way that represented your true beliefs on Britain’s decision to remain a part of the EU. I would like to congratulate you on an honest course of action and a truthful recognition of your obligation to stand by the people who elected you.

Many of the British people have suggested that Britain ought to hold a referendum on whether or not to remain a part of the European Union. In fact, a poll held by YouGov cited that over half of the British public wanted their Members of Parliament to vote in favor of this referendum on Europe—something that was promised, during the last parliament, by all three parties, and for Britain to ultimately leave the EU.

To ignore the will of the people for political interests and party politics would defy the purposes of democracy and betray the desires of millions of British citizens. Yesterday, the majority of Parliament did abandon their citizens, thanks to the other members of Cameron’s government and their support from the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats.

The media is branding the eighty-one Conservatives who defied the three-line whip as ‘rebels,’ their insubordination, a ‘mutiny.’ Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg described the members’ actions as “launching a smash and grab dawn raid on Brussels.” The real rebels, however, are those who are trying to make failed institutions even bigger without any accountability to common sense, fiscal reason, or holding those who are worsening the problems responsible.

The response from those at Tahrir Square, the Wall Street occupiers, and the protestors at St. Paul's cathedral in London will be that they want true democracy and the voice of people to be heard. And yet those who actually stand for the people and empower them are the ones being called rebels. But history has seen these scenes and the tyrants they give birth to time and time again. Know this: you're on the right side of history.

John Locke believed in a limited state and a powerful society. He believed that too powerful a state was “inconsistent with civil society, and so can be no form a civil government at all.” founders on this side of the Atlantic recognized this truth as well, which is why our two nations remain brothers. The actions of Cameron and the other Members of Parliament exemplify the opposite of John Locke’s vision for equality and democracy. You, on the other hand, the eighty- one ‘rebels,’, are risking grave consequences to return political power to the people and away from remote and bureaucratic powers in the U.N.

Those who wish to consolidate their power even further have united globally. It is time for freedom lovers to understand that tyranny and the 'spontaneous' movements around the globe are uniting.

As your ally in America, I am extending myself. We must unite. There are eighty-one of you who stood your ground. There are millions in America, the Tea Party, and all over the globe, that feel the same way and will not sit down when they know what is right.

When we begin to unite, we can work together to defeat those trying to destroy our institutions and proudly begin advancing the causes of liberty and freedom.

Let us know what we can do to help.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
