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 last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
