Elections have consequences

"Alan Grayson is back in and Allen West is out," Glenn told listeners this morning.  "Elections have consequences."

Looking deeper into the results of yesterday's election, it's easy to say that may be an understatement. This morning on radio, Glenn shared some of the bleak results across some of the statewide elections that you may not have heard yet.

Washington (state), Maryland and Maine all passed gay marriage.

In California, they've decided that the three strike rule for violent crimes is too harsh.

In Minnesota, you will no longer have to produce a photo ID before voting.

Maryland passed the first-ever state-level DREAM Act, allowing in-state tuition for children of undocumented immigrants.

In Colorado and Washington (state) they've decided to legalize and tax marijuana -- not medical marijuana -- recreational. Colorado also voted to limit your ability to give to campaigns.

Massachusetts legalized medical marijuana, while Montana upheld theirs.

Florida failed to strike down the use of public funds for abortion.

Corporations in Montana are no longer entitled to Constitutional rights. (If you're a small businessman, that's you.)

"Elections have consequences," Glenn repeated, "and here they are: The dollar fell last night.  It fell against the Euro.  That's the place with Spain and Italy and Greece.  It is, of course, the chiseled monument to stability.  The Euro that they said would break up, possibly soon, the dollar fell against that.  Inflation is still on the rise.  Ben Bernanke, good night for him.  That's why the dollar fell:  Because your dollar is going to be worth less because Ben Bernanke is going to be printing more."

The fiscal cliff is staring us in the face now, and even right-wing cable news organizations were already caving, telling you to accept the financial cliff and compromise, because the election was "a mandate."

"Excuse me?  It was?  I'm sorry," Glenn commented. "What?  Have we even decided who won Florida yet?  It was too close to call when I went to bed.  Did you see the margins?"

"The financial cliff is coming," he added.  "It will gut many things, including the military."

Glenn also commented on the effect this election will have on our ally Israel, noting that those who believe that Barack Obama is a friend of Israel may find out that is not the case within the next four years.

"One of us will be proven wrong.  I was proven wrong last night.  Let's hope that trend continues," Glenn told listeners.

He added that healthcare costs are going to be more expensive, your medical decisions are going to be more limited, and there is going to be added strain on your employer. And many important health decisions will be given to a board or "panel" as many care calling it.

Glenn likened it to the ideals of the Fabian Society and George Bernard Shaw who said, "We all know somebody whose life isn't worth living anymore."

"Or as the president said, "You know, maybe it's best if somebody tells you, instead of that procedure, it's probably best just to take the pill."  Mmm‑hmmm.  I'm glad we're continuing to devalue life on both ends now:  Abortion and doctor‑assisted suicide," Glenn added.

Doctor-assisted suicide, by the way, nearly passed yesterday in the state of Massachusetts.

"Elections have consequences.  And when your friends say, "Wait, wait, what happened?  I mean, we were the pioneers of so many great things in medicine," you just point out to them that elections have consequences."

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
