President Obama got a little angry with Congress yesterday over gun control

The Senate successfully blocked (or 'failed to pass', depending on what side of the argument your on) new gun regulations yesterday, including expanded background checks.

60 votes were needed to pass the Amendments proposed, all 9 failed to meet that mark. The major spotlight was on the Manchin-Toomey background check amendment, which was defeated in a vote of 54 (aye) to 46 (nay). Democrat Senators Harry Reid, Baucus, Begich, Heitkamp, and Pryor voted no alongside 90% of GOP Senators. Republican Senators John McCain, Collins, Kirk and Toomey voted in favor of the legislation.

TheBlaze.com breaks down all of yesterday's votes HERE.

After the votes took place a visibly angry President Obama took to the podium to lambast Congress. Or as Pat put it, "he was pissed."

While some…well, most Americans might think three days after a terrorist attack is a time for the President to show resolve, an ability to agree to disagree is times of struggle, and, quite frankly, an attitude fitting of a man who can't get everything he wants, Barack Obama does not.

Surrounded by families of victims of the Newtown, CT massacre President Obama declared it a "shameful day for Washington" after 46 senators successfully blocked an amendment to expand background checks for gun-buyers, vowing that it was "just round one."

The allegedly "bi-partisan", "common sense" gun legislation failed to get votes from all 52 Democrat Senators. In fact, more Democrats voted against the "common sense" gun reform than vote FOR the President's very own budget.

See the President's full remarks below:

Assuming the President understands that even if this legislation had passed in the Senate, it would have been struck down by the GOP controlled House, his livid appearance during yesterday's speech seems much more tied to his inability to secure votes from his own party and his ego than to the actual legislation.

Glenn was literally speechless in his response to the President's attitude yesterday.

"I don't even know what to say," he stated this morning. "We are in such a dangerous situation right now. Our country is in a dangerous a precarious situation."

Regardless of where the Democrats, Republicans, the President, or even the average American stand on gun reform, the American people are in a situation where they need leadership. Three days ago, two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, killing 3 and severely injuring over 170. Letters laced with ricin poison were sent to the President and members of Congress within the last 48 hours. And, after the President's speech, a massive explosion rocked West, Texas last night, killing multiple people, wounding hundreds, and nearly wiping the small town off the map. The terrorists from the Boston attack are yet to have been caught, and the details of the investigation are fuzzy.

Needless to say, Americans are on edge, distraught, and a little scared. That said, Americans are coming together to support each other and pull through the current challenges. Meanwhile, our president is yelling at Congress on a global stage.

After 9/11, Rudy Guiliano was asked about how he was able to keep his composure during such a frightening and uncertain situation. He explained:

"The hallmark of the fully mature, fully functioning, self-actualizing personality is the ability to be objective and unemotional when caught up in the inevitable storms of daily life. The superior person has the ability to continue talking to himself in a positive and optimistic way, keeping his mind calm, clear and completely under control. The mature personality is more relaxed and aware and capable of interpreting events more realistically and less emotionally than is the immature personality. As a result, the mature person exerts a far greater sense of control and influence over his environment, and is far less likely to be angry, upset, or distracted. My father used to say to me, 'Whenever you get into a jam, whenever you get into a crisis or an emergency . . .become the calmest person in the room and you’ll be able to figure your way out of it'."

That's the sign of leadership. If the president isn't going to act like a leader, maybe he should follow the example being set by the first responders and the American people who are resiliently finding a way to rise above the current struggles of this week.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.

A judge has banned Texas father Jeff Younger from speaking about his son, James, who was taken from him by our courts after he refused to call his son a girl. But Jeff said he'd rather go to jail than comply: "I'll appear in handcuffs ... but I'm not taking this tyranny."

Jeff joined Glenn Beck on "Targets of Tyranny" to tell James' story and explain the biggest lessons he's learned while battling our legal system.

"This interview is illegal in the state of Texas," Jeff told Glenn. "I was banned from publishing any blog posts, social media post, publishing a newspaper article, doing any writing at all about my situation. I was also permanently banned from doing interviews, doing podcasts, appearing on television interviews, and these are all specifically laid out," he explained.

"I was also banned from speaking on three political topics. I'm not allowed to talk about anything about transgender issues, gender expansiveness, or whether my son is a boy or a girl. And I have told this judge — and I tell this judge every time I do an interview — I will never follow your illegal and unconstitutional order. I have contempt for her as a judge issuing the order. I have maximum contempt for the tyrannical language of the order, and I will never follow the order," Jeff continued.

"I'm guilty of maximum criminal contempt in the 301st District Court of the state of Texas, and [the judge] is obligated to put me in jail for the maximum sentence, which is 180 days in the jail in Dallas County. Four days later, I'll be in the jail library with the writ of habeas corpus that I've already prepared. We will go to the 5th District, and we will see who's right. I'll appear in handcuffs, her in the judge's robe, but I'm not taking this tyranny. And I'm not going to stop speaking out about my son."

Here's how deep Amazon's ties to the government REALLY go — and why it matters to YOU

The world knows Amazon is an extraordinarily powerful company, but one family’s terrifying story demonstrates just how dark, dominant, and dishonorable the monopolistic corporation truly is. Amy Nelson’s husband, Carl, was accused of an unspecific crime by Amazon — his former employer — in 2020. Even though Carl was never charged with that crime, Amazon still seized nearly all the funds Amy and Carl had spent years acquiring. Everything was taken directly from their bank accounts via civil asset forfeiture. But the dangers of Amazon go even further.

Amy joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail just how menacing the relationship between Amazon and our federal government — specifically the DOJ — truly is.
