Do YOU live in one of the 35 states that STILL has COVID-era voting laws?

Do YOU have faith in our electoral system? According to a recent glennbeck.com poll, 98 percent of respondents say they think that our electoral system is NOT reliable and does NOT elect the people's preferred candidate. This statistic is staggering and indicative of the impact the 2020 election has wrought on the nation's overall trust in this foundational institution of our republic.

On-air this week, Glenn and Stu discussed that states need to instill election integrity and credibility back into our electoral system by removing COVID-era absentee ballot laws that caused arguably the most contested election in US history. Regardless of your opinion regarding the integrity of the 2020 election outcome, states should not retain universal ballot laws that open the door to widespread voter fraud and distrust in the election outcome.

If there is any hope of reviving trust in our electoral system, these COVID-era absentee ballot laws HAVE to go...yet 35 of the states still have these laws. Seven states retain "all main elections" in which the government ships ballots to EVERY resident, regardless of whether or not they vote in person. 28 other states maintain "no excuse absentee ballot" laws, which have been proven to be problematic regarding election integrity.

If you live in one of the following 35 states, it’s time to call your representatives and demand that they remove these laws to re-establish election integrity.

RECAP: Top 6 most SHOCKING moments from Davos 2024

Bloomberg / Contributor, FABRICE COFFRINI / Contributor, Getty Images / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn's warnings about the World Economic Forum's globalist agenda continue to be validated with each Davos meeting that passes, and 2024 was no exception. While Davos 2023 introduced startling topics like digital IDs, complete "climate transformations," and more, Davos 2024 hinged on the theme of combatting "mis and disinformation," even if it means sacrificing individual rights and national sovereignty to do so. Here is a recap of the top 6 speakers who set the tone for Davos 2024.

Klaus Schwab, Chairman and Founder of the World Economic Forum

While attempting to appease fears that the World Economic Forum is not a "decision-making body," WEF founder Klaus Schwab admitted that participants are "trustees" of the world's future and make actionable commitments based on the topics discussed at Davos:

We must rediscover and embrace the narrative that has driven humanity since its inception: acting as trustees for a better future.
[...]
The Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum is not a collective decision-making body, but its impact stems from the new insights gained through dialogue and interaction, and more importantly, from the commitments made by each participant to contribute more significantly in their respective areas of responsibility to solving our most pressing global issues.

Bill Gates, Founder and Former CEO of Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Bill Gates made his annual debut at the World Economic Forum, and he never fails to leave a trail of questionable statements, leaving one feeling on the precipice of a bad remake of an Orwellian novel. Since 2020, Gates has been one of the most outspoken proponents of pandemic-era restrictions and COVID-19 vaccine mandates — how convenient that he heads the largest vaccine manufacturer in the world.

Now that the pandemic is over, Gates is positioning himself as a leader for "global equity," and it's as cringy as it sounds. Last week at Davos, Gates posited that the developed world should be compelled to pay a portion of its GDP to the developing world. This is the same jargon the Left always espouses — "The 1% has to pay their fair share" — except on a global scale.

"Those who have the most — whether it's countries, companies, or individuals — should be pushed to be more generous."

A common theme at Davos 2024 is the belief that the developed "global North's" contribution to the global climate crises, has caused mass displacement and migration in the "global South." Surely political and economic corruption in the region have nothing to do with it...

To pay for these "climate crimes," Bill Gates says the developed "global North" is obligated to pay retributions to the global "developing South."

Emmanuel Macron, President of France

President Macron echoed Bill Gates with similar globalist language. Macron made the bold claim that he, along with globalist leaders in the EU, have the authority to "circulate" the resources of the 27 member states towards projects and initiatives of their own determination:

Our continent has a lot of savings, but these savings are not circulating towards the right places, towards the right sectors. We can move forward, all 27 of us, we should.

Macron gives no credence to the national sovereignty of each of the 27 nations that comprise the EU. Rather, the EU globalist elites know how to distribute funds and resources better than the people in the nations themselves.

Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission

Ranking at the top of the EU globalist elites is Germany's Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission. During her Davos 2024 address, Von der Leyen pivoted from her typical climate alarmism talking points towards an even more pressing threat: "mis and disinformation."

For the global business community, the top concern for the next two years is not conflict or climate, it is disinformation and misinformation, followed closely by polarization within our societies.
[...]
Of course, like in all democracies, our freedom comes with risks. There will always be those who try to exploit our openness, both from inside and out. There will always be attempts to put us off track. For example, with disinformation and misinformation.

Disinformation and misinformation tackling this has been our focus since the very beginning of my mandate. With our Digital Services Act, we defined the responsibility of large internet platforms on the content they promote and propagate.

Apparently, the climate isn't the greatest existential threat facing civilization anymore. You are now the greatest existential threat if you dare speak your mind that's contrary to the globalists' narrative and "approved speech."

John Kerry, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate

Bloomberg / Contributor | Getty Images

John Kerry has become America's poster child for the World Economic Forum. His political wizardry has somehow landed him the title of "Climate Czar" while traveling on a private jet to lecture you and me about the climate.

During Davos 2023, Kerry set a high bar for cringe-worthy statements after calling himself and the other Davos attendees "extraterrestrial" for their endeavors to save the planet. However, at Davos 2024, Kerry crosses the line from cringy to tyrannical.

Kerry completely disregards the electoral system that holds the United States together by claiming that the 2024 election outcome won't reverse the U.S.'s climate goals:

The US won't reverse clean energy transition regardless of election outcome.

Climate policy is determined by an elected official whose power is derived from the consent of the governed. The climate, according to Kerry, is too important to be held up by trivial processes like U.S. Presidential elections.

Javier Milei, President of Argentina

FABRICE COFFRINI / Contributor | Getty Images

Argentina's new President Milei was a beacon of liberty and freedom amid the Davos sea of collectivist, global elites. He did not mince words in his pointed defense of liberty. Milei argued that the collectivism promoted by the World Economic Forum is the single greatest threat to the West and the prosperity we have enjoyed through it. The end of collectivism, Milei argues, is poverty, slavery, and tyranny.

Here are the opening words of his powerful speech:

Today I'm here to tell you that the Western world is in danger. And it is in danger because those who are supposed to have to defend the values of the West are co-opted by a vision of the world that inexorably leads to socialism and thereby to poverty.

Unfortunately, in recent decades, the main leaders of the Western world have abandoned the model of freedom for different versions of what we call collectivism. Some have been motivated by well-meaning individuals who are willing to help others, and others have been motivated by the wish to belong to a privileged caste.

We're here to tell you that collectivist experiments are never the solution to the problems that afflict the citizens of the world. Rather, they are the root cause. Do believe me: no one is in better place than us, Argentines, to testify to these two points.

Top 3 recent scandals proving the government LIES to you

Bloomberg / Contributor | Getty Images

We all know the government only wants what's best for us, right? They would never lie to us. That's why we trust them with all our tax dollars...

If you've been a long-time follower of Glenn—or have ever picked up a history textbook—you know that, unfortunately, governments tend to slide toward corruption and self-interest. That's why we have a Constitution that puts limits on the government's power through establishing checks and balances—if only the government would adhere to them. With the growing federal bureaucracy composed of thousands of unelected officials, our government is increasingly unaccountable to the Constitution, which means they can get away with more corruption while lying to the American people.

Our elected officials need to step up and bring these corrupt leaders under the accountability of the Constitution again. Here are the top three recent examples of the government getting away with blatantly lying to the American people to cover up their corruption.

The political establishment lied about COVID's origins

Throughout the pandemic, the CDC, NIH, political establishment, and mainstream media cracked down on any speech that didn't fit the approved narrative: that COVID-19 originated naturally from bats, that the NIH was not funding gain-of-function research, and that the draconian COVID mandates were helpful in "curbing the spread" of the virus.

Thousands of people were censored or lost their jobs, being forced to choose between complying with the government mandates and their personal convictions—or even putting food on the table when stimulus checks wouldn't cover their families' basic needs. For two years, we bore witness to how fragile our basic constitutional rights really are in the hands of our unelected, bureaucratic elites.

This past year, the establishment's lies came crumbling down.

In 2023, Congress obtained declassified emails showing the WIV was not only performing gain-of-function research, but it was funded by the Fauci-led NIH. These emails also suggest Fauci’s staff was aware of the potential risks of this research. During closed-door hearings, Fauci admitted to Congress that the COVID lab-leak theory was not a conspiracy theory and that the “6 feet apart” social distancing recommendation promoted by federal health officials during COVID-19 was likely not based on scientific data.

Will the elites whose policies resulted in the censorship and mass firing of thousands of Americans for holding these views be held accountable? Don't count on your government to do so.

The FBI knew their Trump-Russia investigation was a witch hunt.

For years, President Trump faced vigorous investigation and scrutiny over alleged collusion with the Russian government. This persecution lasted for years, until May of 2023 when the Durham report was finally completed. The report revealed that the FBI never had any real evidence against Trump and was seemingly prompted into action by Hillary Clinton and her campaign.

The Truth about the Biden crime family.

On October 14th, 2020 the New York Post published a bombshell article that exposed the damning evidence that then Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter were involved in illicit business dealings with foreign nations. But, within hours of publication, the article vanished into thin air. For years, we were left wondering what had happened until December 2022 when part seven of the Twitter Files revealed that the FBI had prompted Twitter executives to take down the article the day before the article was published.

With the emergence of the Hunter Biden laptop evidence came a whole new understanding of how crooked the Biden family really is. It has revealed that the family has had business dealings in several foreign countries, including Ukraine and Romania, with their dealings amassing several million dollars.

The Iowa Caucus confirmed what many had predicted: Trump is the GOP frontrunner, and Nikki Haley is the favorite amongst the "never-Trump" wing of the Republican party—to the ire of pro-Trump conservatives.

Glenn says that Nikki Haley has drawn so much criticism from the rest of the Republican party because her campaign stances are "out of step with where conservatives are right now." Conservatives are tired of sending their taxpayer dollars to foreign wars. Haley has taken a strong stance in support of ongoing aid to Ukraine. Conservatives are yearning for leaders who take a strong stance against the establishment. Haley seems to embody the establishment that conservatives want to do away with. These are just a few of many qualms that hardline conservatives have with the former ambassador to the UN.

However, there are supporters of Nikki Haley, and one of them left an anonymous letter on Glenn's desk defending her candidacy. Curious as to what's going on in the mind of a Nikki Haley fan? Here are the "confessions" of an underground Nikki Haley supporter:

I'm writing this from a secure and heavily guarded location. I am under 24/7 monitoring and protection, kind of like Epstein, but I'm actually being cared for. There's a lot of debate within the Conservative Party, but unlike the Democratic Party, the Republican Party typically opens differing ideas. Unless you're a Nikki Haley supporter, apparently, then it's straight to the gulag with you.

I am writing this anonymously to save my family from embarrassment and ridicule. My name is John Doe, and I am a Nikki Haley Supporter. Let me explain before you dox me.

People say Nikki Haley is a Democrat. Do you know who else was a Democrat up until 5 minutes ago? The right's favorite loudmouth, Vivek Ramaswamy. Donald Trump was notorious around the Democrat circle before switching over to the right. Iconic Republican president RONALD REAGAN was on the left side as well. So, Nikki Haley is in good company.

When it comes to general election electability, I don't think anybody has a better shot than Haley. Trump may very well be thrown into a jail cell. Vivek will probably slap a cop to get himself thrown in a jail cell in some weird show of solidarity, while Ron DeSantis will continue just existing in his lifted cowboy boots. Nikki is soft-spoken—unless your name is Vivek. Then the gloves come off. She likely won't make any memorable tweets like "Covfefe" or "I love Hispanics" to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, but I'm willing to sacrifice those.

Being a Nikki Haley supporter is like being a Dallas Cowboys fan. Everybody hates her for every reason imaginable. You get hate from every side. You KNOW what she's capable of, but she won't DO IT. I know what you can be, Nikki, and I want people to see you how I see you. But you don't help yourself when you appear wishy-washy on abortion and transgenderism in children. You have a successful track record, just like Ron DeSantis does. You started this campaign off strong, just like the Cowboys. But you're choking in the playoffs, Nikki. You had a decent showing in the Iowa Caucus. New Hampshire and South Carolina are yours for the taking with DeSantis out, just don't say anything stupid! Please don't disappoint me. I've been disappointed enough this year already.

Top 5 ways the Iowa Caucus will shape the 2024 Presidential election

Historically, the Iowa Caucus has been a strong indicator of who will win the Presidential Nomination, and this week's results have confirmed the Left's greatest fears: Trump is the clear GOP frontrunner. Winning 98 out of Iowa's 99 counties, Trump finished with a nearly 30 percent lead over Ron DeSantis and a 32 percent lead over Nikki Haley.

Here are the 5 biggest takeaways from the Iowa Caucus that impact rest of the 2024 Presidential election.

Border security was a leading issue among Iowa Caucus-goers.

Iowans, like all Americans, are feeling the effects of the crisis on the Southern Border and are tired of the inaction of current leaders in Washington. The strength and clarity of the 2024 candidates' plans to secure the border will likely make or break their campaign.

43 percent of GOP Iowa Caucus-goers who support Nikki Haley would vote for Biden over Trump.

It is clear that Nikki Haley is emerging as the star candidate amongst the "never Trump" faction of the GOP. However, Haley's performance in the Iowa Caucus indicates that her anti-Trump stance is hindering the larger performance of her campaign, even though she is the favorite amongst the "never Trumpers."

Trump, DeSantis and Haley would each beat Biden according to new poll.

According to a new poll, President Biden would lose a head-to-head, primary campaign against Trump, DeSantis, or Haley. Will the Democrats keep Biden in the race?

61 percent of GOP Iowa Caucus-goers said they would still support Trump even if he was convicted of a crime.

The Left is betting that Trump will cave under the onslaught of criminal charges as a part of their attempt to crush his credibility as a candidate. Their plan, according to the Iowa caucus, is failing. In fact, the continued barrage of indictments is only fueling GOP support for Trump. 61 percent of GOP Iowa Caucus-goers said that they would stand by the former President even if he was convicted of a crime and 35 percent said that a conviction would actually increase their support.

Biden's approval rating has dropped to 33 percent.

While Trump's support is growing, Biden's is rapidly falling. Only one-third of Americans think Biden is doing a good job, a record low during his presidency and the worst rating of any U.S. president within the past 15 years. It's becoming increasingly clear that Biden is a losing horse on the Democrats' ticket, and that terrifies the Left, especially if Biden is pitted against Trump. Will the Democrats keep Biden as their unchallenged candidate? Glenn thinks they are preparing a new candidate, and if they succeed, we may just have another President Obama.
