CA Dems are fired up over citizenship question in 2020 census — but not for the reason you’d think

The U.S. Department of Commerce announced Monday that the U.S. census will reinstate a question on citizenship status.

Within hours of the announcement, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra tweeted, “Filing suit against @realdonaldtrump’s Administration over the decision to add #citizenship question on #2020Census,” adding that, “the question is not just a bad idea — it is illegal.”

Though the Democrats would have us believe their concern lies solely in the welfare of illegal aliens and their elected representation, Glenn suspects that left-wing politicians fear losing seats if illegal aliens aren’t counted when congressional districts are drawn up.

“What this is really all about: power, voting power.”

“The real reason why California and all other progressive lawmakers are upset over this [is] because this seemingly benign question actually threatens something they’ve been building for over a decade,” explained Glenn on today’s show. “What this is really all about [is] power, voting power. The entire purpose of the census … is to determine how many representatives are allotted for each state.”

“They are scared to death that the citizenship question on the census might cause illegal immigrants to skip filling it out entirely, and what would that mean? It would mean that the state and local governments would lose representatives and funding from the United States Government in grant money. They’d lose the weaponized political power that they’ve been building for years.”

In farewell address, President Trump lists AMAZING accomplishments the left ignores

Joe Biden was sworn in as America's 46th president on Wednesday, but not without President Trump giving a farewell address from the White House first. Glenn and Stu play part of Trump's Tuesday night speech, during which he lists several amazing accomplishments achieved by his administration over the last four years. As Glenn and Stu remind us, many of his accomplishments the left will continue to ignore. So, this speech serves as a reminder that despite the media backlash and recent chaos, President Trump should be remembered as an effective and efficient leader.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Why Eric Weinstein Is Finally Talking to Glenn Beck | Ep 93

Eric Weinstein is not a conservative, but he talks to conservatives because he says, more often, they're the ones who let him speak his mind without branding him (a Jew) a Nazi. He tells Glenn why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast. In the aftermath of the U.S. Capitol riot and President Trump's second impeachment, Eric and Glenn probe the historical, economic, social, and even scientific reasons for the events of the last week. They also tackle some of the hardest questions our country faces: What do we do about a power-grabbing Big Tech, a dishonest media, Wokistan vs. MAGAstan, and the destruction of American culture? How do we restore civility between the Left and the Right? How do we save the UNITED States of America? In an honest conversation that will stretch your comfort zone, Glenn and Eric show us where to start.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

Dan Bongino details behind-the-scenes 'SMEAR' against Parler

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually VALUES 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 details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.
