Are We on the Brink of a Charles Sumner Moment and Civil War?

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) crashed the sit-in pillow party orchestrated by House Democrats, offering up a dose of reality. The Dems continue to blame guns for the terrorist attack in Orlando, refusing to name the real culprit --- radical Islam.

Gohmert bravely confronted them with the truth, yelling "Radical Islam killed these people!" pointing to posters with photos of gun violence victims.

Things are reaching a fever pitch that Glenn has warned about for years.

"Who saw Louie Gohmert on the floor of the House yesterday and thought to themselves, 'Oh, my gosh, this is what Glenn Beck has been talking about is coming and the warning of that's right before we break apart?'" Glenn asked. "We are on the brink of civil war. We are on the brink of breaking apart."

Co-host Pat Gray agreed.

"We're on the brink of a Charles Sumner moment, where he got beaten with a cane over the expansion of slavery in the country," Pat said.

For those unfamiliar with this story from American history, Charles Sumner was a senator from Massachusetts who, as part of the Radical Republicans, fought to end slavery. His speeches admonishing slavery infuriated pro-slavery senators --- both Democrats and moderate Republicans. In 1856, Representative Preston Brooks, a democrat from South Carolina, beat Sumner severely on the head with a cane. Sumner, who became blinded by his own blood, staggered up the aisle of the senate chamber before collapsing and lapsing into unconsciousness. Brooks continued beating a motionless Sumner until his cane broke. Several other senators attempted to help Sumner, but were blocked by fellow South Carolinian, Laurence Keitt, who brandished a pistol and shouted, "Let them be!"

Glenn fears we're headed in the same direction.

"Mark my words. It will be someone like Ted Cruz or Louie Gohmert that gets the cane to the head. It will be a self-righteous progressive that will beat a liberty person almost to death. That's what happened in the 1800s," Glenn said.

During the mayhem yesterday when Gohmert bravely spoke the truth, another voice boomed out, trying to drown out the opposition.

Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun? Why do you want to protect terrorists from buying a gun? Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun? Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun?

"Does this make any sense? Does this make any sense at all? You've got the Democrats saying, 'Why would you want a terrorist to buy a gun? Why would you want a terrorist to buy a gun' The same people who cannot bring themselves to even identify terrorists," Glenn said.

As always, Democrats want it both ways to suit their agenda of the moment.

"They're the same people who would not say anything about Fort Hood. This is a game, guys. You're watching a play. Why do you want terrorists to buy guns? That's not the position of the left. Terrorists don't exist," Glenn said.

Had Democrats done their job and allowed the FBI to flag Mateen as a terrorist and place him on a watch list, had they not dismissed red flags raised by American citizens, including the owner of a gun shop, Omar Mateen would have never purchased a gun legally. Political correctness enforced by Democrats failed the American people and citizens at an Orlando nightclub, allowing a radicalized terrorist to kill 49 innocent people and wound scores more.

"Here's the problem: If he would have been on the terror watch list and if they were investigating him, if people had made these charges, they couldn't really go in and look at his computer. Yes, they can. It's called the NSA. I thought that's what we were doing. I thought that's what they were doing illegally against the Constitution. See, none of this makes sense. They are not fighting for life. And they are not fighting for civil rights.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

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?
