Rep. Gohmert calls current situation in Congress “discouraging”

Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) joined Glenn on radio this morning and candidly admitted how discouraged he is by recent events in Senate regarding the continuing resolution passed by the House of Representatives on Friday that defunded Obamacare.

Yesterday, following Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) 21-hour anti-Obamacare speech, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-UT) said the Senate will pass a spending measure that does not defund Obamacare and send it back to the House, at which point, the House Republicans will have to decide what their next steps will be. Rep. Gohmert explained that, at this point, anything that delays the implementation of Obamacare will be seen as a victory.

“What is the latest from Washington,” Glenn asked.

“It's so discouraging, I'm telling you, you know, we did a good thing when we voted to defund Obamacare permanentl… but by the end of the day our leadership was saying, ‘Now on the debt ceiling next week, we're going to, you know, just postpone it a year,’” Rep. Gohmert said. “We have so many incredible businessmen, people that have negotiated incredible deals, and how do you lose that knowledge of how you negotiate that you don't put your offer out there and before the other side can even consider it, you say, ‘Now, I'm backing off of that and I'm willing to take this small amount.’”

So is the GOP now backing off defunding Obamacare and raising the debt ceiling? Not quite.

“So now the GOP has not only backed off of universal healthcare, they're now saying we're not going to do anything about the debt ceiling too,” Glenn asked.

“Oh, no, no, we're going to postpone that a year, that's the proposal, but we're really not going to do much about ObamaCare,” he explained. “We may postpone it a year but not defund it for the year. So that it gives it a better chance to be in place stronger, you know, a year from now.

"No, postponing it would be better,” Glenn interjected. “Postponing it would be quite honestly I think a victory at this point.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

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?"
