DENIAL: Colorado Dem blames recall loss on voter suppression

In the ultimate display of denial, recalled Democratic Colorado State Senator Angela Giron blamed her loss on “voter suppression” during an appearance on CNN yesterday. Earlier this week, Colorado residents voted to recall Giron and Democratic Senate President John Morse over a number of gun control laws they pushed through the State Legislature.

GIRON: We know what really happened here. Yes, we had the strong NRA and you have a person like Mr. Head, but what this story is really about, it’s about voter suppression. When Colorado has voted by mail, 70% of Coloradoans vote by mail. And we didn't have access to that mail ballot.

BROOKE BALDWIN: Okay, forgive me but I'm going to cut you off right there because if we talk voter suppression, I've read reports of lack of popularity on your behalf. Let's just not go there. Let's get to the meat of the story which is this gun control stance that they…

GIRON: That is the meat of it.

“That is so great,” Pat said. “‘Let's not go there. I've got reports of how unpopular you are. Can we not blame this on voter suppression?’ Because 5/6t of the money spent in this race was spent by [Giron, Morse] and their allies, the mayors against guns group. It's amazing.”

The CNN anchor went on to remind Giron that nearly $3.5 million dollars was poured into her campaign efforts, including at $350,000 personal donation from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, had promised to keep Giron and Morse in office. Comparatively, the National Rifle Associated donated $368,000 to support the recall effort, which pulled in only $500,000 total from the pro-gun lobby.

“I mean, that is incredible,” Glenn concluded.

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.
