Trump Teams Up With Democrats to Write Sequel to the 'Art of the Deal'

The Senate voted 80-17 Thursday in favor of a plan proposed by Democrat leaders and endorsed by President Donald Trump to keep the government funded for three months. The bill includes a measure for more than $15 billion in funding for hurricane relief efforts.

“The debt ceiling has become meaningless,” Glenn said on radio Friday.

Earlier this week, Trump shocked Republican leadership by striking a deal with “Chuck and Nancy,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), for the bill increasing the spending limit. Republican leaders wanted to fund the government for 18 months, taking them through the 2018 midterms, while Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) proposed plans that would pay for hurricane relief funding and scale back on spending, respectively.

“What if the deal included automatic spending cuts if the budget is upside-down?” Glenn proposed. He pointed out why government spending is out of control: “Call me crazy, but maybe if they had to actually have to have a budget in place in the first place.”

GLENN: You know, perhaps The Art of the Deal needs a sequel. The chance to make a real positive difference. It turns out the deal Trump cut with Schumer, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to increase the debt ceiling for three months wasn't the only deal he was working on. Trump and Schumer also discussed developing a plan that would no longer require Congress to routinely raise the debt ceiling.

What it would do is get rid of the federal limit on government borrowing, so they would never, ever have to discuss the debt ever again.

First reaction is, wow, that's a little irresponsible, maybe of the highest order. And, of course, that's completely true. However, the second reaction, maybe this presents us with a sort of weird, unique opportunity.

The debt ceiling has become meaningless. It doesn't mean anything to people anymore. And it just -- what? We're not going to pay our bills? No, that's a complete and total lie.

So maybe we do look at this as an opportunity. What if the deal included automatic spending cuts if the budget is upside down? Yeah, I know. It never happened.

But call me crazy, but maybe, if they had to actually have to have a budget in place in the first place. I know. I know. Having a budget. That's too much to ask, don't you think? Or a two-thirds supermajority to exceed the budgeted spending levels.

The principle of this sort of a deal would be to force Congress to prioritize its spending. Because they're spending too much. And I'm sorry, there's no place to cut. Turtle tunnels comes to mind. That's no big deal.

Then cut the turtle tunnels. The only thing we take less seriously than our border is our debt ceiling. And both of them will be the death of us.

I like the fact that Washington every so often has to squirm. They have to feel the weight of their own failure and figure out another debt ceiling increase. I like that.

The only way that it should go away is if you can actually pass something meaningful to restrain spending. Not to continue this Kabuki theater that is the debt ceiling.

If the president can pull that off, I think he'll sell a hell of a lot of copies of The Art of The Deal, Part Two.

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
