Gov. Abbott: Yes, Texas really can ARREST House Democrats when they return. Here's how.

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Which is more impeachable — former President Trump's phone call to Ukraine or President Biden's Afghanistan withdrawal, which destroyed relations with our allies, gave the Taliban tons of U.S. military equipment, and resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. service members?

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain why she's calling for President Biden to be impeached — but she's not stopping there.

"I have legislation that will be introduced to impeach both Biden and [Vice President Kamala] Harris. And Nancy Pelosi can follow them out the freaking door," she told Glenn.

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.
