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.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.
