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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
