Voters Betrayed: GOP Establishment Pushes for Brokered Convention

Looking through the exit polls, they show at least 50 percent of GOP voters feel "betrayed" by their own party.

The craziest part is they still don't get it.

The rebellion in the DNC is being crushed by Hillary. But will those who feel disenfranchised stay with the party? They are more closely aligned with Donald Trump than Hillary. Had he not been friends with the Clintons he would have been an obvious Democrat nominee.

The establishment of the GOP is now gunning for a brokered convention. They have no idea how close they are to a beat-down as happened to Charles Sumner with the Whig party. Because the GOP establishment doesn't respond to the people and are living in their own Versailles, they are now responsible for the most liberal progressive Republican slip-in --- and use the people's anger to destroy the party (which has outlived its usefulness) --- but more importantly, the ruination of our conservative principles.

If Rubio would have stayed true to what he promised the people, he would have walked away with this, but he chose McCain, McConell and Romney.

Half of the voters already tonight say they will not be happy with Trump if he is the nominee. Why? Those who aren't voting for him are embarrassed by him, think he is unstable and most importantly, we actually believed in the things we marched for during the Tea Party movement.

Dave Bratt was their final wake up call. If they would have listened to the people then, they wouldn't be facing total destruction now. They slept while the people cried out. It is no surprise to me as I have warned them since 2004 that this and worse was coming.

I believe it may be too late for either party. I pray it is not too late for the republic.

The establishment is still pushing for Rubio even if it means a brokered convention, which would be a disaster and only make everyone angry.

Washington doesn't understand that we the people actually believe in principles. But now, as George Washington predicted in his farewell address, someone who seeks to benefit himself has slipped through the two parties fueled by a desire to punish, over principles.

We don't want Obama care or Trump care. We don't want special favors, but equal justice for all. Nixon should have gone to jail and so should Clinton.

Until these parties decide to fumigate their own house, this is only going to get worse, and now that Hillary will have her shot, look for another celebrity to run in four or eight years.

We have all been betrayed by those in DC. I pray this is not the last peaceful revolution at the ballot box. But if the person that becomes president allows cronyism and back-room deals, it just well may be and those who have formed the habit of saying "let them eat cake" will be facing the rage of a population that has taken it for far too long.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

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!"
