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.”

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
