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. 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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
