Glenn Beck: Let Detroit go bankrupt

Glenn Beck's The Christmas Sweater

VOICE: Glenn Beck's The Christmas Sweater is in stores everywhere. Critics are calling it the most emotional garment-based Christmas Story of the year but is one text tile Christmas-based story enough? Fans of Glenn Beck's novels will be thrilled with the latest announcement from the publishing world. Coming Christmas '09 it's The Christmas Boot. Glenn Beck's heartbreaking story of a young boy who was given boots for Christmas and then lost one of them. Live the story of his relentless quest to find that one lost boot. Coming to bookstores Christmas 2009.

GLENN: I think that's making fun of me. I'm not really -- hello, you sick twisted freak. From sunshiny, just sunshine and lollipops, the capital of happiness, Manhattan, New York. From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. Third most listened to show in all of America. Mitt Romney says let Detroit go bankrupt. Don't you think it would be great if he would have shown up, I mean earlier. You know what I mean? You know, I wonder when he was running if he would have actually said those words. I wonder if anyone would have said those words when you had to actually then get the votes of Michigan. You know what I mean? Can anybody actually tell the truth anymore? Very, very alarming how few people can actually tell the truth. Mitt Romney is telling the truth when he says let the big three go down. Let them go bankrupt. That is -- let me tell you something. General Motors you know is a sponsor of my program. I'm an ambassador of General Motors. I believe in the General Motors product. I believe in the people of General Motors. I have driven their hydrogen car. I believe in the future of General Motors, but you know what I don't believe in? Socialism, nationalized industries. And I know that all these big Three will say, well, we're just getting a bailout. Let me tell you what happened in the 1970s of another car company. It was called British Leland Motors. In fact, they are the people that made the really cool Mini? You know who makes the Mini now, right? The German car company, BMW. The Mini was a great car. Came from Leland Motors, Great Britain. What happened to it? Well, it got bogged down and got lost in big unions and socialist practices of their government, became just lumbering giant that just couldn't get out of its own way. So they asked for a bailout and they got a bailout. The government said, we'll lose too many jobs; we've got to have this industry, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and they failed them out and -- oh, did I -- I'm sorry. Did I forget to -- no, I think I did tell you. You know that cool Mini Cooper? Made in Germany by BMW. It's not a problem to go and get and declare bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is healthy. It's not a failure. It stops you from being a loser. What is a loser? A loser is somebody who gives up or a loser is somebody who just keeps trying the same thing over and over and over again and everybody's screaming at them saying, stop! And they are just such a loser, they just keep banging their head against the wall doing exactly the same thing, even if they know that it can't be done. And that's what -- what? Now? I'm sorry. I'm sorry. We have to pause for a message.

VOICE: Glenn Beck is proud to announce a followup fiction novel to the 2009 probable smash hit The Christmas Boot which, of course, was a followup to the original Christmas garment novel that started it all, The Christmas Sweater, and it's set to hit stores Christmas of 2010. It's the other Christmas Boot. The story of a set of boots in which one was lost and its owner kept searching for it and the related loneliness of the Other Christmas Boot, left in solitary confinement at the bottom of the closet. The Other Christmas Boot, available in bookstores everywhere Christmas 2010.

GLENN: Okay. So Mitt Romney is now coming out and saying let them go bankrupt because we all know -- look, what's the problem, guys? What is the problem with General Motors and Ford and Chrysler? Is it a problem for quality? Is it? Have you driven -- I mean, this is -- I've driven GM cars for the last, I don't even know, eight years, and I've driven them because I chose to drive them. I was an ambassador now for the last 18 months of General Motors. When they called up and said, would you do General Motors commercial? I said, yeah, I've got -- my cars in my garage are General Motors. I believe in them.

It's not quality. So what is it? Is it management? You know what, I have to tell you I sat at the table with the management of General Motors and I -- let's just say I poked them in the chest a few times. I'm really not somebody who tries to be popular. And I said, "Come on, guys, come on, how much technology have you guys buried? What's hidden in the basement?" And whew. Hydrogen, hydrogen, the fuel cell, you want to know about the hydrogen car? Yeah, we've been able to do the hydrogen car since the 1960s. I said, "Huh? What?" They said, haven't been able to do the fuel cell but we did the hydrogen car in the 1960s. We had that technology available. But you know what, Glenn? We can retool one time and we need some leadership in Washington, somebody in Washington that will say, "Hey, guys, this is the direction that we're going and, by the way, we're not going to screw you or let the environmentalists screw you, you know, five years down the road. We're not going to do to the car company what we've done to the nuclear power companies which, oh, by the way, that's the cleanest energy on Earth. We're not going to do that to you." That's what they've been begging for.

So it's now the government who is mandating all kinds of stuff: Make sure it's this, make sure it's that, it's got to be this. The only thing they haven't said is Mark sure it's only one color.

Is it the workers? Nope. I know American workers. American workers can create anything, but it is labor-related. It's the damn unions. It's the people who have said -- I mean, I couldn't believe it. I actually heard some of these people say on television just the last couple of days, they are saying, "Yeah, well, you know what, and they've got all of these pensions. I mean, what's going to happen to all of these pensions." Who thought they were going to get these pensions? Who actually thought you could continue to hit an industry and have them pay $78 an hour when your competitor is paying $48 an hour and the average American is making $24 an hour? You want to talk about hit the rich, hit the unions.

They get all of these benefits and these packages and you can't fire them and you can't do anything and you can't -- they've got to have this health coverage and this kind of pension plan and it can start at this age. There's no way a company can survive. But here's the good news, gang. The unions have gained their strength. Even FDR said that he didn't like unions in the government. He didn't think that government should have union involvement there. That would just be wrong. Again what's good for the goose isn't always good for the gander. And so the unions now are going to be able to open up and we're going to have a government that is unionized, strong government unions. That's fantastic. Think of all the blessings that are going to come from that.

So being a loser means that you stop trying or that you don't believe that you can do it or that you just keep doing the same thing over and over and over again and you just refuse to listen. That's a loser. Failures only make us stronger. Can you imagine if Edison -- he failed 6,000 times -- if he would have just, every time he failed, kept saying, I need more money, I need to borrow money from the government, I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, but then didn't change the filaments that he was trying out, just kept doing it the same way. He didn't. Bailouts aren't going to work. Bailouts are only going to lead us to a bigger hole, in your pocket.

This is what I talked about, when we first got into this bailout system and we have just opened this up for Henry Paulson. And whoever the next treasury secretary is. They can just do whatever they want. There's no oversight here. And they have taken $700 billion and turned that into a $5 trillion promise, $5 trillion. Since we started talking about the bailouts, that's what they've done. And there's no oversight. Do you know what they've promised? They've spent your money. When I started saying at the very beginning of this is they are not going to stop. And if they don't, there's not going to be anything left. The idea is to have something left to restart. Well, that's what a bankruptcy does. A bankruptcy puts it into protection so you can start renegotiating all of those outlandish contracts. Do you know how cheap it is to live in Detroit?

Look, this is going to cause pain but so does surgery. Would you ever, would you ever advise any of your friends who had cancer and they were damn near terminal. If they don't act now, they would be terminal. Would you ever say to them, "No, you don't want to have your breasts removed. That will be painful and then the scars and everything would..." are you kidding me? Go in and have your breasts removed! Go in and have your leg removed! You're going to die if you don't. There's pain. There's going to be pain. But it's only the pain that honestly should have been coming a long time ago. We have continued to build bubbles. How is it we've never heard of bubbles before until the Fed started to just keep manipulating these bubbles. We had, first it was the dot-com bubble. Then that burst. And then, of course, then we had the housing bubble and then that burst. We have right now another bubble. It is called the money bubble. We are creating a bubble. We are just creating money and just spending money and thinking that it's going to last forever. Did we not learn from! It doesn't last! What congress is suggesting is the of money!

I so believe in General Motors, I so believe in the people of Detroit, I so believe in the product that they have that I want to see them last. I'm not against them. I'm a spokesperson for them. But I can't -- because I want them to last, I'm sorry, I have to be the doctor who is removed from the situation that says, "I'm sorry, guys, you don't have a choice. You're going to have to have that removed, but you'll make it and it will be okay. This is going to hurt a lot and it's going to hurt you more than it hurts me, but in the end it's the right thing to do." And in this particular case the doctor can say, "And in the end we'll both be better off because of it." It's not experimental surgery. Bankruptcy works. Experimental surgery, you know, that newfangled thing that has absolutely no evidence of it working, no evidence -- hang on. What? Again? Hang on. We have to break for this commercial message.

VOICE: By now you know 2008's The Christmas Sweater, 2009's The Christmas Boot and 2009's The Other Christmas Boot. But coming Christmas 2011, it's the Christmas Speedo. The Christmas Speedo is the inspirational story of a young fairly hairy boy with German heritage who inexplicably loves to wear a Speedo in public even during the freezing cold of the holidays and his subsequent numerous arrests, available in bookstores everywhere Christmas 2011.

GLENN: I don't think the garment thing is really what I was going -- anyway, the experimental surgery, if you were facing life and death and you had something that had been tested over and over and over and over again and it works; or something else that has been tried over and over and over again, especially in the recent, you're in a hospital and like this is being tried on everybody and there's absolutely no sign that it has worked, not even once has changed the situation, they all seem to be getting sicker, would you go to the hospital and go, "Yeah, I'm going to try that experimental." You take the damn bankruptcy because you know it works. It's going to cause pain but it's going to work. Our -- again? Another sponsor.

VOICE: Just when you thought there weren't any garments left to write a book about, Glenn Beck is proud to announce the Christmas bra, part of the Christmas Sweater, boot, other boot, and Speedo series. The Christmas bra is an inspirational true tale about what a young boy was really wearing underneath his Christmas Sweater. Available in bookstores everywhere 2011.

GLENN: Today is the day we find out at 5:30. I'll let you know tomorrow. Today is the day that Stephen King may have to look just behind him and go, I feel the hot breath of Satan's mentally challenged younger brother who actually believes that the troops can read. That's right, Stephen, we're coming for you. We are, the Children of the -- well, not the corn but the children of the people who live in the part of the country that grow all the corn.

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.


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.

Watch how the conversation went on radio HERE:

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

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'

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.


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.


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.

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.
