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."

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?
