Winners and losers of Democratic presidential debate according to Glenn

WINNERS:

1. Martin O'Malley. He looked presidential. He was well prepped and articulate. He used the camera well and made connection with the viewer. He seemed like a left Progressive, but mainstream enough in his presentation to win the country. He could grab O'Malley-progressive Republicans.

2. (Tied with 1) Bernie Sanders. Line of the night, unfortunately, "We are tired of your emails." Notice where Republicans would have divided, he united! Also, I figured him out tonight. I understand his appeal. No one else can do what he has done, and the Republicans, by not understanding how he is connecting, could lose to him. It is more than his policies. In fact, his policies actually would prevent him from a win in the general, but only if others discover what his real strength is. (I want to refine my explanation and will present on radio.)

3. Anderson Cooper and CNN. Neither the network or Anderson pitched softballs. They did not play favorites nor did they hold back on a single candidate. While they didn't cover the things I would have, they covered many of them and hit them as hard as I would have. The real sign will be the number of calls Jeff Zucker gets from the campaigns tomorrow telling him they were unfair.

LOSERS:

1. Jim Webb. Stop the whining. He just didn't belong. He was at his best when you forgot he was part of the debate.

2. Lincoln Chaffee. He looked clueless and like a small town mayor. His answer on the bank bailout was perhaps the worst answer I have ever heard any candidate give. He too was at his best when he was neither seen nor heard.

3. Hillary Clinton. She reminded America why her campaign and the DNC is fighting so hard not to have debates. She looks like a slimy flip-flopping politician. She is utterly unlikable and untrustworthy. I hope she wins the nomination because, other than Jim Webb and Lincoln Chaffee, she is the easiest to beat.

The thing that I worry most about: The country.

The Republicans are engaged in a clown show much of the time. They, unlike the Democrats, spend most of their time fighting each other. They come off to the average person as angry, small-minded and insincere.

The Democrats are Socialists, corrupt and insincere.

The country is in real trouble.

Most Americans understand that.

Bernie Sanders is the only one coming to the table with ground-shaking ideas and those ideas are 100 years old and discredited. But the old saying: "we have to do something" comes to mind. To many, his ideas are new and he seems sincere.

Our education system is churning out people that have no idea how to engage in critical thinking, the media is in the bag for big government, big political parties and big corporations.

We as a people not only do not see the same solutions, we don't even agree on the same set of problems. From climate change to All Lives Matter. We no longer can even agree that American culture is unique and good.

We are headed for real trouble.

The next president is going to face titanic-size problems. Perhaps Lincoln-style problems. Who is big enough to unite us and lead us? Who has the moral authority?

We need real statesmen, big thinkers that understand the possibilities of the tech of tomorrow along with the hatred and bigotry on all sides (race to wealth) of today.

There is one key that pulls everyone together and only ONE candidate tonight talked about it and it is why he is drawing huge crowds.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
