Glenn interviews Bill O'Reilly




Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama


by Bill O'Reilly

GLENN: And Bill O'Reilly is joining us now. In case you don't know who Bill O'Reilly is, he does a cable show apparently at 8:00 p.m. on a network called the Fox News Channel. He is also the author of several number one books that are number one forever and ever and ever, and he is I mean, he will have to be destroyed. But that's something that we'll discuss after he leaves the phone. Bill O'Reilly, welcome to the program.

O'REILLY: Now, are you going to mention the book that's out today, Beck? Are you going to do that?

GLENN: Well, I was but now you are getting a little hostile. I don't know if I

O'REILLY: Well, I was. When? When were you?

GLENN: He is the author of Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama. Now, Bill, I'm judging a book by its cover. It's got a picture of you and Barack Obama on the cover.

O'REILLY: Correct.

GLENN: If I'm judging, if I'm trying to follow here first of all, it's a picture book. Second of all, one of you is the pinhead and one of you is the patriot.

O'REILLY: Well, wait a minute, Beck. I mean, when we go out on the Bold Fresh Tour, there are pictures of me and you. Is that the same thing?

GLENN: Well, no. That's called the Bold Fresh Tour, yes. One is bold, one is fresh.

O'REILLY: One is bold and one is fresh. One's a pinhead and one's a patriot.

GLENN: I would say you're implying that President Obama is a patriot.

O'REILLY: No, that's absolutely wrong. That's why you have to read the book.

GLENN: Really? Okay.

O'REILLY: Yeah, you've got to read the book to surmise. Then

GLENN: I'll know that

O'REILLY: Then you'll and, you know, on the Obama front

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: He can be both a patriot and a pinhead depending on what the issue is.

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: For example, today he's a patriot because he's telling school kids how to handle bullies, and he did it in a pretty good way. Yet, on the spending issue he's an unbelievable pinhead.

GLENN: Let me ask you this: Isn't he how would you classify him? Is it enough to say he's a pinhead when the way he's handling this mosque business? I mean, you've been following this mosque

O'REILLY: Oh, it's ridiculous. He's a major pinhead on the mosque, no doubt.

GLENN: Just a major pinhead?

O'REILLY: On the mosque issue absolutely. We broke the story last night, you know, in conjunction with the New York Post.

GLENN: I know.

O'REILLY: About this con, an assistant imam tied in with the 9/11 imam, the Ground Zero Imam Rauf, and his con's a 9/11 denier, a Truther. And now we find out that, you know, all of this benevolence that the Ground Zero mosque community center people pulling out was, you know, what about this guy? He's Rauf's close associate. He says Al Qaeda didn't attack us on 9/11.

So look. There's a lot of stuff in, but the interesting part of this book that you should read is that I compile

GLENN: Wait, wait. What makes you think I haven't read your book?

O'REILLY: Because you were with Sarah Palin hunting moose for the last few weeks, were you not?

GLENN: Okay, good. You are right, yes. Yes, I haven't read it. But it is on my list. I am going to read it. I'm starting to read it tonight.

O'REILLY: Because it's all facts. This book is no spin.

GLENN: Okay, wait a minute, wait a minute. It's all facts.

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: So that would mean that there's no opinion in it.

O'REILLY: No, it's light on opinions.

GLENN: It's like an encyclopedia?

O'REILLY: Well, no, no, let me amend that. When I deal with Obama who is the centerpiece of the book.

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: It's all facts. Fact, fact, facts, facts, facts.

GLENN: As opposed to

O'REILLY: And then you decide although I do call him a pinhead and a patriot on certain things, you know, when the facts are overwhelming. But there's a lot of it where the reader, I ask the reader: Okay, here are the facts; what do you say. But then there's a chapter on a whole bunch of people in history, presidents, movie stars, icons, people like Elvis, Marilyn Monroe.

GLENN: Tell me what you think

O'REILLY: I give you stuff you don't know about them and then I say, okay, make the call. And then I, of course, make it as well. So there is a lot

GLENN: Let me ask you this. Because I'm doing a special on George Soros.

O'REILLY: Pinhead. He's in the book.

GLENN: I know, I'm looking at it right

O'REILLY: Right.

GLENN: I mean, can we have just a conversation? Do you always have to be I mean, really

O'REILLY: Do I always what?

GLENN: You are always a little hostile.

O'REILLY: Hostile in the eye of the beholder, Beck.

GLENN: No, I think you are the only one

O'REILLY: I have to keep you in check now that you are the nation's guru. That's how I'm now describing you.

GLENN: Is that what it is? The nation's guru?

O'REILLY: You are the nation's guhu guru.

GLENN: Guhu?

O'REILLY: Guhu guru ru?

GLENN: Yes.

O'REILLY: That's you.

GLENN: That's me.

O'REILLY: Who else can get 300,000 people to go to Washington?

GLENN: 300? I don't know. We got probably 500 or 600.

O'REILLY: Well, I think it was two million. Who else could have done that? Right?

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: In August to go to D.C. but you?

GLENN: Right. Not a lot of people because

O'REILLY: No.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: The Maharishi couldn't have done it.

GLENN: No.

O'REILLY: No.

GLENN: So I'm not in the I'm not in the book?

O'REILLY: No, you are not in the book. Because, you know, you're my pal and I don't want to have to tell you the truth in the book.

GLENN: Well, I don't know if you're not see, I don't know if we are pals because like Chapter 8, loathing Obama.

O'REILLY: Right, loathing Obama.

GLENN: He's a socialist. He's a socialist. The Greek chorus cries.

O'REILLY: Oh, I get into that very deeply, Beck. You are going to love that chapter. I get into the socialistic thing.

GLENN: Wait, wait, you don't think he is.

O'REILLY: I just lay it out for you.

GLENN: You don't think he is a socialist?

O'REILLY: No, not as far as what a true socialist is.

GLENN: You are exactly right.

O'REILLY: I mean, you can make him socialist lite.

GLENN: He's more socialist lite?

O'REILLY: You know what he is? He is a socialist like gelato is ice cream. You know, it's not really ice cream but they call it ice cream.

GLENN: All right. So what would you say he is?

O'REILLY: I would say he is a far left guy committed to social justice and he's going to do whatever he can to impose it.

GLENN: Anticolonial kind of thing? Does that play a role? Did you read what's his name?

PAT: Dinesh D'Souza

GLENN: Dinesh D'Souza? The article in Forbes?

O'REILLY: Yeah, I have it right here in Forbes magazine.

GLENN: Have you read it?

O'REILLY: I've read part of it.

GLENN: You should read it. It is a really, really good case. I'd love to hear your opinion on it.

O'REILLY: Well, I will read it then. I mean, if you feel that strongly about it. I mean, I have it right in front of me. I was looking at it.

GLENN: You're reading I'm asking you to read, you know, a three page article in a magazine. I have to what is this? Holy cow, this is 240

O'REILLY: I'm the program that keeps America in check every day, you know?

GLENN: This is 242 pages. I tell you what, give me the best three pages of Pinheads and Patriots and then you read the three pages of and we'll call it even.

O'REILLY: Well, you read I want you to read the whole book of Pinheads and Patriots because you'll like the book.

GLENN: Then you have to read all of Forbes magazine.

O'REILLY: Because again this book is meticulously researched. The most fun part of the book is the chapter, the second to last chapter where I just go over all the people in history that you talk about

GLENN: Is Woodrow Wilson in there?

O'REILLY: No, he's too boring. But Lincoln, Washington, RFK, Eisenhower

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait. Wait, wait, wait, you've got Janis Joplin in there.

O'REILLY: Far out, man. Far out.

GLENN: Who is talking about you make fun of me saying nobody talks about Woodrow Wilson, nobody even knows. Janis Joplin, where is the big Janis Joplin outcry right now? How is she affecting our lives?

O'REILLY: Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, the whole Sixties thing, Beck, that you wouldn't understand because you're 27 years old.

GLENN: Well, I should, I should be

O'REILLY: There's a big message there for people on drugs. So that's why I put it in there and you know that. You are just being contentious this morning.

GLENN: No, that's you job. I'm the fresh part, you are the bold part.

O'REILLY: But the other part of the book that is really interesting is my interview with Obama in 2008.

GLENN: You are never going to inter

O'REILLY: And what he said to me and then what he's done.

GLENN: You are not implying

O'REILLY: It's all there.

GLENN: No, wait.

O'REILLY: This is what he said and this is what he's done.

GLENN: You are not implying that he's been less than honest, are you?

O'REILLY: Well, I mean, look. I'm not going to make that implication because I don't have to make it.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: The words are on the page.

GLENN: Right.

O'REILLY: Here's what he said, here's what he's done.

GLENN: You realize that you are never going to do another interview with him again?

O'REILLY: No, it's a fair book. He should like the book. Obama should like the book.

GLENN: Have you sent him a copy?

O'REILLY: I haven't sent it to him. He can buy it himself. Are you kidding me?

GLENN: Well, you are richer than he is.

O'REILLY: So what.

GLENN: You wouldn't even notice the money that he's going to take from you.

O'REILLY: It's not about the money. It's about saving the country, Beck. I'm on the same plane as you. You are the guru.

GLENN: Yeah.

O'REILLY: And I'm the hammer.

GLENN: I don't think a guru carries a hammer, does he?

O'REILLY: No, no, no. You are the kind of nice guy, and I'm the guy that's saying, hold it: When you've got to get the big hammer in, here I come.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I would just like everybody who is now working and being paid for by George Soros to understand I'm not the guy. You've got to go after Bill O'Reilly. Because he thinks you're a pinhead.

O'REILLY: Soros is the worst. And I'm glad you, I'm glad you are doing a big special on him.

GLENN: You think because people have asked me, and I know you lay out the facts because I just, you know, I'm looking at the facts here. People ask me all the time, you know, really is Obama I mean, what is where is the real, where's the real source of problem in politics right now, and I think it is George Soros.

O'REILLY: Well, he's bad. I mean, people have got to really understand what this guy is doing.

GLENN: Why is he doing it, Bill?

O'REILLY: Because he wants a socialistic nation. I mean, George Soros, the guy who makes money all the time manipulating currencies and buying up dubious investments and all of that but, you know, for whatever reason Soros wants a socialistic world, one world where everybody has the same except George Soros who has much more. That's what he wants. And he's used his billions of dollars to create these things like Media Matters and moveon.org that just assassinate people with whom he disagrees, verbally, innuendo, gutter sniping. I mean, it's awful. It's awful. And George Soros has been to the White House a lot since Obama's been president. That disturbs me.

GLENN: No, that's a different George Soros. That's... he's air conditioning mechanic, friend of Barack Obama. You're thinking of a different George Soros.

O'REILLY: It is. Just, I thought he might have been the exterminator with all those bugs that you pointed out. I don't think he wants them around.

GLENN: All right. The name of the book is Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama, by Bill O'Reilly. Number one New York Times best selling author. And thank you, Bill, for releasing this right before I release mine because now I don't have a

O'REILLY: Look, you know, you ever heard of the book of the month club? That's you, all right? You have a book every month. Anyway, read the book, Beck, because I'm going to talk to you about it on The Factor on Friday.

GLENN: You got it. Thanks a lot. Bill O'Reilly, Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama. Thanks, Bill, talk to you tonight.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

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


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."

Nancy Pelosi and her growing ensemble of radical leftists are making sure that 2021 will be just as terrible as 2020 — terrible, and forcefully gender-neutral. The 117th Congress convened on Sunday, and on Monday, they shifted the goalposts by approving a 45-pages rules package, "H. Res 7," in a 217 to 206 vote. The Rules Package is the brainchild of Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA).

Yesterday, in a speech to the House, Republican Rep. Tom Cole described the proposals as "some of the harshest and most cynical that I've experienced during my time in Congress." Congressman Steve Scalise accurately called it a "Soviet-Style rules package. ... designed to take away the voice of 48% of this chamber."

Some of the many wild rule changes include a continuation of proxy voting during the coronavirus pandemic, a ban on lawmakers convicted of certain crimes from visiting the House floor, and of course what would Democrats be without their hatred for Donald Trump? With the rule changes, they've found a way to attack Trump even after he's left office. They've added provisions that allow them to send subpoenas to former Presidents, former VPs, and former White House staff long after their administration has left the White House.

They've added provisions that allow them to send subpoenas to former Presidents, former VPs, and former White House...

Pelosi called the plan a "visionary rules package" which "reflects the values of her diverse Democratic majority," framing the proposal as a departure from ignorance, with that elitist under-handed way of condescending to non-woke Americans. She called them "future-focused proposals," as if conservatives and Republicans aren't worried about the future. Democrats honestly believe this. Believe that we pray to God for the destruction of the future, whatever it means. Although, Democrats are certainly not the authority on prayer: They can't even say one without jamming it full of woke inanity. And "inanity" is the word for it. Because the Democrats have devolved into utter nonsense.

In the news cycle, stories get buried. It feels like we're all constantly putting out fires. Politicians love this: Just about every controversy vanishes quickly. Shady legislation goes unnoticed. The mainstream media isn't going to report on this, not with any semblance of honesty or critical thought. As always, they're more interested in attacking Donald Trump. So it's up to us to ask, "Wait a minute, you're doing what now?"

You may be thinking, "How do the rules for the House of Representatives affect me?" Because you can tell a lot about a person by the way they run their house, or in this case their workplace. If this is how they want to conduct their workplace, I'm terrified to see how they'll run the country. Because, even though it will require ethical breaches and severe overreach, that's exactly what they're about to do, including a rule that keeps the House Minority from amending legislation on the floor.

In true leftist fashion, Democrats have projected their own injustices on Republicans. Like how the bill refers to the new rules as "sweeping ethics reforms," the implication being that there were ethical violations that demanded reforming.

Yesterday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said it best, delivered a scathing rebuke of House Democrats. I recommend watching the whole thing. In particular, he took umbrage with the way the rules violate our freedom of speech, the most important right that we have as Americans.

He's right: This hatred for free speech began in academia. Specifically, from the Marxist radicals who promote and adhere to Critical Theory. We conservatives have spent so much time on Critical Race Theory, but we're missing the bigger picture. Critical Race Theory is just a wart on the looming monster known as Critical Theory. If you think the riots were bad, if you thought sports had become overrun by woke politics, if you thought colleges were bad already — you better get ready for the ideological tidal wave, because it's so about to be much worse. The whole thing is Critical Theory gone wild. I'll tell you why in a moment. First, let's look through the details.

Gender

The resolution aims to "make this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history," and opens by formally establishing the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. An entire department within the lower house of Congress devoted to bringing Critical Theory to life."Inclusion and diversity," two concepts entrenched in Critical Theory inanity. The left would call them "dog whistles," seemingly innocuous words that signal something evil. Apparently, inclusion and diversity are the reason House Democrats felt the need to change the name of the Office of the Whistleblower Ombudsman, "to the gender-neutral Office of the Whistleblower Ombuds."

Then they really lose it in subsection e: "Gender-Inclusive Language." This section "modernizes the use of pronouns, familial relationship terminology, and other references to gender in order to be inclusive of all members, delegates, resident commissioners, employees of the House, and their families."

In other words, the standing rules will now be gender-inclusive. ''Seamen'' will now be ''seafarers." ''Chairman'' is ''Chair." And one clause of House rules removed the terms father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother" — you get the idea.

The new rules also require "standing committees to include in their oversight plans a discussion of how committee work over the forthcoming Congress will address issues of inequities on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin; honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral."

Free Speech

One of the most egregious parts of the rules changes is the way they'll compromise free speech. Democrats want to protect free speech only if it's something they agree with. They've taken this to villainous extremes.

Deep Fake Media

●The Democrat rules package also made it an ethics violation for members to knowingly distribute "deep fake" media.

●The wording is vague, and could easily encompass conservative media. What do they mean by fake media? Memes? Articles? Jokes? Op-eds? "regulations addressing the dissemination by electronic means of any image, video, or audio file that has been distorted or manipulated with the intent to mislead the public.

●It applies not only to Representatives' official accounts but also to their personal accounts, a clear violation of free speech. "They would penalize any member who shares news or views that liberals and their allies in the media deem 'fake.' They actually make it an ethics violation, which is usually reserved for such unbecoming conduct as bribery and corruption."

Pay As You Go (PayGo) Exemptions

●The new rules also weaken PayGo, a budgetary-control measure that limits "Tax and Spend" policies and requires Congress to offset spending on bills that would increase the deficit.

●They are the payment rules on legislation related to the virus and climate change that previously required lawmakers to identify new revenue sources or spending cuts to fund their priorities.

●Democrats will now be able to force through any legislation regardless of the cost, and for legislation like the Green New Deal. Yet AOC actually had a problem with this caveat, but of course, her reason for opposing it is as asinine as you'd expect.

The Motion to Recommit (MTR)

Congress is a majoritarian institution. They govern themselves, as long as it doesn't violate the Constitution. Since Democrats regained the majority two years ago, they have treaded that line and I would say that they've been downright unconstitutional. For those entire two years, they boasted that in 2020 they'd sweep Congress, all of it, but especially The House of Representatives. They were wrong, and now they have the slimmest majority in years. And I'm positive that their hubris is largely responsible.

They were wrong, and now they have the slimmest majority in years.

Since the creation of the modern party system shortly before the Civil War, there have been 18 House majority changes, with Democrats in power the most.

●The motion to recommit provides one final opportunity for the House to debate and amend a measure, typically after the engrossment and third reading of the bill, before the Speaker orders the vote on final passage. ... The motion does not delay or kill the bill. MTR gives the Minority, and by extension their constituents, a voice by denying them the chance to debate a bill on the floor.

●It's been around since the House was founded, and in its present form since 1909. In 1919, Rep. Abraham Garrett said that "The Motion to Recommit is regarded as so sacred, it's one of the few rules protected against the Committee on Rules by the General Rules of the House."

●When Pelosi was in the Minority, she described the MTR as grounded in the Free Speech guaranteed by our constitution. Anytime the Republicans had the majority, they never even considered cutting off MTR.

Democrats shifted the goalposts by redefining words, by degrading the current meanings, and by trying to convince us that we are fundamentally immoral. It's textbook Critical Theory: attack our sense of reality, our understanding of knowledge, our guiding beliefs, and, now, our most fundamental rights.

We've entered the era of Critical Theory. Wokeness is the new law.

Literally.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy. They're still not saying the quiet part aloud. Critical Theory allows for this. Saddle up to the new normal. The new authoritarianism. Just like how nobody took 20 seconds to hop on Wikipedia and check the etymology of "amen", none of the Democrats have really thought out their plan.

Article I, Section 8 of The Constitution delineates the powers granted to the Congress, one of which is "to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel Invasions."

Well, lately, America has been overrun by insurrections and invasions and Congress can't do much about it because they're in on the insurrection. Significant factions within the legislative branch have encouraged these insurrections, they have validated the invasive radicals who threaten to destroy our country. And they've done it under the auspices of furtherance. Of being progressive. Of not being racist, or transphobic, or whatever insult is trendy on woke Twitter.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy.

They're saying, "surrender some of your rights, some of your luxuries, some of your privileges — you have so many, you don't deserve them — and you'll make the world a smidge better." It's the kind of ideology that shreds through people like they're nothing and it is swallowing America whole. Once they change the rules and they change the words, you're living a real-life version of Orwell's 1984. What we need in a moment like this are strong people willing to face the wrath of a Leftist establishment that is all too happy to watch the world burn.

McCarthy talked about how people were feeling this indignation. Well, Kevin, I want you to know, it's not just you. I feel it. I think more than 70 million Americans feel it.

It's not going away any time soon.

And today, I ask that you just prepare mentally, for a rough road ahead. But one that we win in, in the end. And I can say it with confidence because I know the truth, will always set people free.

The truth will always prevail.
