A Moral, Dignified Man's Bridge Too Far

If you have been wondering where the truly great men are, America has found one. You want an example of bravery, courage and merit? Look no further than Senator Mike Lee.

To me, this is what warrants the Protection of Divine Providence.

Here is a man who was NOT in a firestorm, who knowingly walked into the fiery furnace. All he had to do was shut up, stay quiet and his life would be fine. He had no reason to do this. He is 30-plus points ahead of his challenger in Utah. He is at the top of the list to become the next Supreme Court justice!

Why would he do this!?!

There will be a ton of insipid accusations, votes, money, etc., but logic and reason will dismiss all of them. The only reason is because he believes in something: America is greater than we are allowing her to be.

This is what God and country over self looks like. This is what long-term vision looks like.

I don't know how it ends for him, but this is a man to whom I proudly stand next to and pledge my life, my fortune and my sacred honor.

This heroism and loyalty to God's most basic eternal principles is the seemingly impossible duty that Jeremiah had tasked the King: Accept your situation and trust in Me. This most basic loyalty to His principles is something most preachers refuse to give.

Mike Lee's declaration was the single greatest act of bravery I have witnessed in a very long time. If the GOP is worth saving, they will follow suit.

Don't get me wrong, Mike will fail in some way, just as I will falter and fail in someway. We are all human. But this act of bravery needs to be noted.

While I don't know Mike's future --- other than the hate, isolation and death threats --- I can guess the future of the once standard-bearing party. Lincoln would walk away and stand with United States Senator Mike Lee.

Every person, each of us, must decide what is a bridge too far. Mike Lee obviously reached that point, where the moral compromise his party asked him to make was simply beyond what is acceptable.

It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity. If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is, indeed, the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.

If she is elected, the world does not end. Once elected, Hillary can be fought. Her nominees can be blocked, her proposed laws voted down. Her tactics are blatant and juvenile. Battling her by means of political and procedural maneuvering --- through the media, through public marches and online articles --- all of that will be moral and worthy of a man of principle.

The alternative does not offer a moral person the same opportunity. If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness and depravity.

But as long as it's not her, it's okay, right?

No.

Lee's call for Trump to step down and withdraw from the race was respectful to him and to the process. Trump stepping down does not guarantee a Clinton win, but it does guarantee the Republican Party still stands for something.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
