Establishment GOP totally hearts latest debt ceiling raise

In a 221-201 vote, House Republicans caved and passed a clean debt ceiling resolution yesterday. The vote allows President Obama’s and the Democrats to increase the government’s borrowing cap without any concessions from the White House. See a list of the 28 Republicans who voted ‘yay’ HERE.

While Senate leaders sought to eliminate the chance of a filibuster of the House-passed bill by allowing for a simple majority to approve the suspension of the debt limit until March 2015, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) refused to grant his consent. That forced a cloture vote. Unsurprisingly, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) sided with Democrats, and 10 more Republicans followed suit:

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY)

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN)

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ)

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

Sen. Mike Johanns (R-NE)

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL)

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)

Sen. John Thune (R-SD)

Sen. McConnell’s challenger in Kentucky, Matt Bevin, joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss the vote. Glenn first asked Bevin to describe the mood among Kentucky voters following Sen. McConnell’s maneuvering.

“There's a tremendous degree of disappointment and just plain confusion,” Bevin said. “He's a man who not only is out of touch with us, not only has done these types of things before, but had given us some hope that perhaps he might be seeing the light, if for no other reason than the fact that he was running for re-election in a tight race. But no, he just doesn't seem to care. And people are about fed up with it. They really are.”

Given the complicated nature of the debt ceiling and the potential impact on the 2014 elections, Glenn played devil’s advocate and explained what probably when down in the cloak rooms of the Capitol Building yesterday.

“Let me play devil's advocate because this is how it went down in the cloakroom,” Glenn said. “I can guarantee: The President… will use this. There won't be spending and this whole thing will be pinned on us and it will look bad for the Republicans. You want to lose the Senate again? We have a chance of winning. We just have to be smart about it.”

“I'd be willing to risk losing the Senate, if we could keep America. I really would,” Bevin said. “I'm a guy who is willing to lead. I'm a former active duty Army officer. I understand a little about leadership by example, and I am willing to be such a person. There's no perfect person, there's no one person who has all the answers, but our country is hungry for men and women who have the fortitude to step up and do the will of the people… This isn't about the nonsense that happens inside the beltway. It is about representing the will of the people, and I will be a person who does everything within my power to do exactly that.”

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
