Somebody's Getting Played Here, and It's Not Chuck and Nancy

What happened?

President Donald Trump had dinner with Democrat leaders last night and chatted about tax reform, border security and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era program shielding around 800,000 people from deportation. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell were not there.

Trump said this morning that “no deal” had yet been reached and called for “massive border security” as part of any agreement.

Who’s happy?

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, according to a statement from their offices saying that Trump had agreed to “enshrine” DACA into law. “President and the leaders agreed to pair the bipartisan DREAM Act with some border security, excluding the wall,” a source familiar with the meeting told Politico.

Trump last week sponsored a Democrat plan to raise the debt ceiling with a bill to fund the government for three months along with a measure allocating $15 billion to hurricane relief, stunning Republicans.

Who’s really, really not happy?

Trump voters, immigration hawks and conservatives in general who want to ensure border security.

Glenn’s take:

Is bargaining with Democrats acceptable? Absolutely – if you use bipartisan bargaining to help keep your promises to American voters. Making a deal isn’t bad if you get something good out of it, but Trump hasn’t done that. Democrats will keep promising to work on border security, but Trump has no guarantee.

“Somebody’s getting played,” Glenn said. “It is not Chuck and it is not Nancy.”

GLENN: Well, Donald Trump promised that you would make deals, and that's exactly what he did last night. The president had dinner last night where he apparently struck a deal with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi again. There were no Republicans there.

His supporters are furious. Breitbart is furious. Drudge is furious.

The White House this morning is starting to walk it back. The deal reportedly shrines the protections of DACA into law quickly. And will work out a package of border security.

The -- the deal does not include any funding for the wall. So here's what happened: The Democrats have achieved their policy goal of turning DACA into law. And the Republicans, what do we get exactly?

Here's what we got. We got a commitment from Democrats to work on border security. Uh-huh.

On the positive side, if we are going to live by DACA, it is better that Congress passes it into law than being an executive program. That is the only positive I can find.

To the deal: Two things are true. One, making a deal is not bad, if you get something good out of it. Two, Trump got nothing good out of this deal, at least that we know of.

Because the Democrats are always going to promise, we're going to work on a border security package. We're going to work on a border security -- yeah, they never do. The Republicans never do.

We're expecting the Democrats to do it? A good deal would have included real immigration reforms, real border enforcement.

Look at this from the Democratic angle. If Trump reverses himself, they get to call him cruel and paint him as the bad guy trying to hurt these young adults affected by DACA. If he instead keeps his word, they get their policy goal. And the G.O.P. gets a promise to work together.

You need to know this. Somebody's getting played. I don't know who it is. But I know for sure it is not Chuck and it is not Nancy.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

WATCH: Glenn on Tucker: After Chauvin Verdict we CAN come together

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.

Glenn joined Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night to discuss a less political way forward.
