Has Matt Drudge Left the Reservation?

Many anxious conservatives are awaiting the Trump administration's actions on Obamacare and other key Republican platform issues. Even diehard Trump support Matt Drudge recently tweeted about the delay in tax reform.

"Every single time, [Republicans] have got the executive and both of the legislative branches and they've got the majority and they've got all the power, they just squander it. And it looks like that's the road they're headed down again. And I'm going to be really pissed if that's what happens," Co-host Pat Gray said Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Let's pray Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Ryan (R-WI) don't ignore the will of the American people yet again.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

PAT: Drudge was upset by that and tweeted about it yesterday. And Sean Spicer was asked about it at the White House press conference.

VOICE: I noticed that Matt Drudge tweeted today that the Republican Party should be sued for fraud, basically upset about the lack of any legislation to repeal Obamacare or any tax cut legislation. So what's your message to him and anyone else who is worried about sort of the big push in the beginning and might be concerned that that momentum is stalling?

SEAN: I think it's hardly stalling. I think it's a mammoth thing to repeal and replace. I think there's no question the president's commitment to doing this. You've heard Speaker Ryan talk about how we should be able to have this wrapped up by the end of the year.

It's a big bill. It got jammed through, and it was very sweeping. We're talking about one-fifth of our economy. We can either do it quickly, as the Democrats did, and end up with a monstrosity, where premiums go up, access is limited. Or we can do it right.

And I think the president, while he wants to get this done as soon as possible and understand what's at stake, he wants to do it right. He understands how important health care is to American families and individuals. And so his goal is to get it done right and have an outcome that achieves the goals that it sets out to do. That's it, plain and simple.

STU: That's a good answer, right?

PAT: Okay. The problem with that though is, that's just pushing it down the road, which is what Republicans do every single time.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: Every single time, they've got the executive and both of the legislative branches and they've got the majority and they've got all the power, they just squander it. And it looks like that's the road they're headed down again. And I'm going to be really pissed if that's what happens.

STU: And the tax cuts were what Drudge specifically mentioned there. And I guess he maybe also hit Obamacare. But the tax cuts are interesting because you've heard at least talk about the Obamacare part of this. We've heard almost nothing about tax cuts.

PAT: About tax cuts.

STU: And, again, you have to look at this as you have two years here. Not four years. Two years.

PAT: Right.

STU: Because you don't know what's going to happen in 2018. Yes, the Senate is set up well for Republicans. But you have no idea what the context of those moments will be. You have no idea if you lose seats or you gain seats. You have no idea if the House goes or not. You have no idea what the economy, what shape it will be in. You better get these things passed now while you have momentum.

PAT: And the thing is, if it were the Democrats in this position with the executive branch and the House and the Senate --

STU: They did it. We don't need to speculate. They did it.

PAT: They did it. They do it every single time. Every single time.

STU: They did it with the stimulus. They did it with Dodd-Frank and Obamacare.

PAT: And Obamacare.

STU: They pushed three gigantic initiatives through, almost immediately. And that's what you have to do.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Because you can't predict what the status will be in a couple years.

PAT: The other thing that concerns me about this is if we do something fast, we'll wind up with a monstrosity. Which leads me to believe that they're putting together some massive government program to replace the massive government program, which is a huge concern.

STU: Yeah. And that's a little scare.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
