Last Night, the Man Became the President

The truth is that Presidential speeches to joint sessions of Congress are quickly forgotten. Within a week, the nation will be on to other topics. But while the speeches are forgotten, the impressions they leave will live on. Last night, Mr. Trump finally became President Trump. That should scare the crap out of Democrats.

President Trump’s speech was, frankly, a conventional speech to a crowd that favors convention. He sounded the part. He hit the right notes. His remarks on Ryan Owens and having Mrs. Owens there were electric and unifying. It was a moment of non-partisanship in a hyper-partisan age. That moment allowed all but the most cynical partisans to be American, not partisan. The President put the nation ahead of the tribe. That matters.

When Glenn Beck asked his audience to "give until it hurts" to get Christians and other refugees out of Afghanistan, he thought it was an "impossible goal." Two days later, that goal was surpassed with rescue efforts already under way. This miracle was only possible because of God and all who donated, Glenn said on the radio program.

"I told you there's no way this happens unless God is present. If this happens, it is because God has opened up doors," Glenn began. "Everyone would tell us it can't be done. It can be done. And if we serve others, if we keep our eyes and our hearts open to suffering of others and get out of our suffering, we will solve problems that people will say can't be solved. You will see miracles in your lifetime ... it will be a Moses-style miracle and it happened because of you. Don't you dare give up hope," he added.

"Out of all of the principles that we have as a nation, the one that makes us so noble is we never leave people behind," Glenn went on to say. "Don't let that go out of your heart. Don't close your heart. I don't know why I'm telling you this ... your heart is more open than I thought, and your heart is more open than mine. Thank you for giving me my hope in the future back."

The United States and Great Britain have enjoyed an alliance since World War I, but President Joe Biden's failure to coordinate his Afghanistan withdrawal with allies like the U.K. has devastated America's overseas reputation, argues Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage.

Farage joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday with the latest on how America's diplomatic relations with its allies may look for the rest of Biden's presidency, and perhaps much further into the foreseeable future.

"You know, I've spent 40 years working for American companies and businesses, being allies, politically, with Donald Trump and many friends of the Republican Party. There's nobody this side of the pond who is more pro-American, more pro-respectful relationship than I am," Farage told Glenn. "And it hurts me to say this, but for Biden to unconditionally withdraw from the military mission after 20 years, without any planning or any foresight as to how we get our nationals out in the case of a Taliban advance, and to do it without even consulting the British prime minister, and refusing to answer his phone call for almost 48 hours, sends a message to us. And the message is, we cannot trust America.

"Despite being our closest partner for over 100 years, we cannot trust America with this man in charge. And it's a sad realization, but it's true. And I think it's even further than the relationship with the UK and the USA. I think NATO, frankly, ceases to function. So the damage that Biden has done to America's international reputation could not be greater," he added.

Glenn and Farage also agreed that, while the corporate media accused former President Donald Trump of wrecking the NATO alliance, Nigel explained why it's Biden who has truly thrown that relationship into turmoil.

"The way the international mainstream media wanted to portray the Trump movement, just as they did with the Brexit movement, [was] 'Trump is going to destroy NATO.' No, no, no, what Trump did, he turned up at the NATO HQ of Brussels and said ... that we cannot go on with a NATO where major countries like Germany are only paying half the membership fee," Farage explained. "The NATO rules are actually very fair. Regardless of the size of a country, you must spend 2% of GDP on defense. And the Germans were spending one [percent.]. So actually, in many ways, what Trump was doing was trying to make NATO fair. But it was willfully, willfully misportrayed.

"What Biden has done, is to say, 'Look, we're the big guys in NATO. But, hey, we just do stuff without consulting, despite the fact that you, too, have had many hundreds of people killed in Afghanistan, and put big money into Afghanistan. But without even the compliment of a conversation, we've decided that, effectively, the NATO mission is over.' So, yeah, the special relationship with Britain is completely in tatters. NATO, I'm not even sure it could possibly survive what it's just gone through," he continued.

"And, of course, when you look at those photographs today, of Taliban soldiers now dressed in American military equipment with $85 billion worth of U.S. military hardware now in the hands of these people, with the giant lithium reserves that exist in Afghanistan now completely open to exploitation with Communist China, and warnings coming in the UK today that our terrorism threat is now going up directly as a result of what has happened in Afghanistan ... believe me, Glenn, this is on every level a disaster."

President Joe Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan has been criticized from both sides of the political aisle as an utter disaster. But Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to share the one piece of "good news" that he believes has come from this failure: "Biden's DONE."

"There is good news in this story," O'Reilly stated. "The good news is Biden's done. All right, even though he's going to be there physically, in the White House, he's finished. His credibility is shot. He's not coming back. He doesn't have the energy to come back, or the creativity to come back, or the vision to come back," he added.

"From the beginning of this incredible screwup in Afghanistan, the administration under Joe Biden has not done one thing that has worked. Keep that in mind. Nothing has worked. Because they didn't plan it. There wasn't anybody in charge who really knew the country. And so, when you have that level of incompetence, you're going to go down. Now, every American knows that. And the ones that do play slight attention, know the [southern] border is a catastrophe. They know the woke culture is a catastrophe. They know the progressive left, the socialists, are a catastrophe. And you add it up, and what has the man done well?"

Bill and Glenn went on to discuss the absurdity of President Biden's threat to hunt down the ISIS-K terrorists following the attacks that killed and wounded U.S. service members and Afghan civilians in Kabul on Thursday.
