Republicans lose debt ceiling debate… but Mitch McConnell got $2 billion for KY!

Needless to say, a lot of people aren’t trilled with the “deal” the Republicans in Congress agreed to. Basically, the Senate plan that was later approved by the House, kicks the can down the road and does not give the GOP a victory on much of anything… Except, of course, for the $2 billion Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) secured for his home state.

“Okay. Now, a lot of people are saying the GOP didn't get anything out of this deal. But you are wrong. Dead wrong,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Mitch McConnell got $2 billion. Yeah!  I have been saying, ‘Let's put the whole thing on the line for Mitch McConnell's reelection.’ I've been saying, ‘If we can just get a bribe for the state of Kentucky of $2 billion, I'd be set.’"

TheBlaze reports:

Included in the McConnell-Reid bill that would end the government shutdown, fund Obamacare and lift the debt ceiling, is apparently a roughly $2 billion increase in the authorization for the Olmsted Lock and Dam project in Kentucky, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home state.

However, there appears to be more to the story.

The alleged earmark package is being referred to as the “Kentucky Kickback” by the Senate Conservatives Fund as McConnell’s political opponents claim the dollars helped seal his support for the final McConnell-Reid bill. A spokesman for McConnell has flatly denied the claim.

Sen. McConnell’s office is insistent that they had nothing to do with package. Instead, it appears as though it was Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) who officially requested the provision be added.

“Now, you know what Mitch is saying here is, ‘I didn't have anything to do with that.’ You know what? He didn't. He didn't. It was Lamar Alexander. And that's how worthless Mitch McConnell is. He couldn't even get a works project done for his own state. He had to leave it to Lamar Alexander. And Lamar Alexander didn't even do it. You know who really did it,” Glenn asked. “Dianne Feinstein… Of course she's the one who did that. There was no deal going on here. Mitch McConnell didn't do anything. Mitch McConnell, come on! It was Tennessee. It was Lamar Alexander… He did not write in a $2 billion bribe for the citizens of Kentucky saying ‘Elect me because look what I can do.’ He did not do that.”

As TheBlaze reports, Sen. McConnell’s critics are skeptical that he had absolutely no say in the matter, as he is both the minority leader in the U.S. Senate and a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

“McConnell may try to blame someone else for this, but he wrote the bill and it’s not the first time he has sought funds for this project. He also requested $100 million for it in 2010,” the Senate Conservative Fund claims. “This is what’s wrong with Washington and it’s what’s wrong with Mitch McConnell.”

“He didn't work behind the scenes on this. He didn't have anything to do with it,” Glenn said sarcastically. “He was right there with the American people on ‘I want everybody. I don't want just special interests. I want everybody to have the right deal. I want everybody to not have to pay for fines or have their insurance so far out of whack that they won't be able to keep their doors open for their businesses.’ No. No. No.”

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
