Glenn Beck: America's Path to Restoration

Hey, if you listen to the White House, there's nothing else to worry about — the worst is behind us!

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: We can stand here today and say, ‘We prevented another depression.’ We broke the back of the recession. The economy that was shrinking by six percent a year ago is now growing by six percent. So, the worst of the storm has passed.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Before we went on the air, I saw this on Drudge Report, “Obama’s science czar tells students: We can’t be #1 indefinitely...” Nothing to worry about here. Obama's multi trillion dollar health care plan has passed, the jobs should start pouring in any minute! The New York Times is also giddy about the economy — they ran this headline last week: 'Why So Glum? Numbers Point to a Recovery.'

Really? Has the Times even looked around their own newsroom? It's practically empty. They recently announced another 100 layoffs in the newsroom — which brings that total to what, New York Times? Probably explains why we're getting articles about how great the economy is. Jim from maintenence has taken over the business section at the Times. They also slashed salaries by five percent. Why so glum, New York Times? You've got former New York Times writers who are actually living now on the street. You should read the story about this guy — it’s amazing. He’s a panhandler now, and used to work for the Times.

Then the New York Times built a giant skyscraper. Two words for you New York Times: Government takeover. Every important economic indicator is showing tough times ahead — and it's becoming apparent that something more than just 'growth' will be needed to restore America and stop the bleeding.

Leading economists now say the slump is going to be around for at least two more years. Moody's says America is walking a tightrope and that 'preserving debt affordability at levels consistent with AAA ratings will invariably require fiscal adjustments of a magnitude that, in some cases, will test social cohesion.' Test social cohesion. That's incredible. They also added that 'the severity of the crisis will force governments to make painful choices that expose weaknesses in society.'

I guess Moody's doesn't subscribe to The New York Times. Former Congressional Budget Office head Doug Elmendorf said the nation's fiscal path is simply "unsustainable." Then you have Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, who said this last week:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BEN BERNANKE, FEDERAL RESERVE CHAIRMAN: To avoid large and unsustainable budget deficits, the nation will ultimately have to choose among higher taxes, modifications to entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, less spending on everything else from education to defense, or some combination of the above… unless we as a nation demonstrate a strong commitment to fiscal responsibility, in the longer run we will have neither financial stability nor healthy economic growth.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That's huge — the Chairman of the Fed telling Americans that they are about to face DRASTIC changes.

So what is Congress doing about it? Nothing. Normally Congress doing nothing is a good thing, because they can't screw up the country. But in this case, we need them to undo the damage they've inflicted on America. Instead, they jam health care through and hope for the best on the economy. They are actually set to miss the April 15 deadline for completing next year's budget —they aren't even considering a draft. They are skipping it to avoid unpopular votes around election time. Look at how stupid they think you are. 'Hey, if we just don't do a tax hike right around election time — we can do it later and nobody will remember!'

America, it's time to make a choice. You have to choose — who is right? Is it Barack 'the worst is behind us' Obama? The New York Times? Or is it the leading economists — Moody's, former CBO directors, and Chairman of the Fed Ben Bernanke who now tell us we are in trouble? But I remind you these are the same people who told us during the housing mess that we were fine. Are those guys right, or is your gut right? You know this is unsustainable and something has to be done. Even our own politicians will admit that they are incapable of doing anything — here is Congressman Tom Perriello:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. TOM PERRIELLO, D-VA.: The only way to keep them out of the cookie jar is to give them no choice. Which is why, whether its balanced budget acts or pay-as-you-go legislation or any of that—it's the only thing. If you don't tie our hands, we will keep stealing

(END VIDEO CLIP)

But this isn't just an American problem — this is a global problem. And what people won't tell you is that it's all about to come undone. We can get healthy; but we need common sense and a spine. All countries have been stealing from the cookie jar. All countries decided massive debt isn't a big deal. We've all pursued bigger government socialization programs. We've all been shipping our jobs to India and China.

I told you months ago to watch Europe. They are ahead of us — they've tried all the things we are embarking on. George Soros is warning that Europe could be on the verge of 'disintegrating' if they don't muster up the political will to survive. Except he's advocating for more bailouts. That’s like telling a cancer patient: 'Smoke some more.'

I also told you that a couple months ago that the far left and the far right — the fringes — are coming out of the woodwork and even gaining power. Greece is on the verge of collapse; billions in bailouts have only delayed the inevitable. The unrest there is growing, and the violence is too. Far left militant guerrilla groups have been launching bomb attacks and the unions have been rioting as well. The far right is gaining power after elections in Hungary. In South Africa, hundreds gave the Nazi salute and waved swastika flags at the funeral of a prominent white supremacist who was murdered.

The world is on the edge, and I believe because of the George Soros' of the world, we are being pushed farther off that edge. There are profound changes coming right around the corner, and the world is about to make the same mistakes that were made in the 1930s.

In the 1960s, we had mutually assured destruction. It was to stop us from bombing each other. We were all afraid of nuclear war. We were afraid the missiles from Russia were going to come over the pole and kill us, and we would have to send our missiles over there, and we’d vaporize each other. Caroll Quigley said in his book that in 1962 the tragedy was global war and the hope was that it would never happen again. What he announced in this book was that they tied all of our economies together, so now if one country was destroyed or would destroy another, they would all collapse. They’d all go down the toilet, and so they would have motivation to stop anybody. And he said in 1962, You’ll never see a world war again. You’ll never see one country go in and obliterate another. It won’t happen.

Gee, think of all the wars that have been fought by us since 1962. Is there any doubt in your mind that we could have finished in Pakistan, we could have finished in Iraq had we unleashed the full might and power of America? Ask yourself the question: 'Why didn't we?' Because we’re all tied together economically.

We are in the eye of the storm — we've just been battered around, and now it's calm — but there is more coming! And the weathermen are telling everyone it's OK to go outside.

The only way to have real hope is to have the truth. When you go to the doctor and he tells you that you have cancer, the doctor doesn't hate you. You have cancer. Don't confuse the truth with hate speech. If you don't believe that doctor, go find another one who engages in the truth. If they want to save you they will tell you the same thing. A correct diagnosis gives you a chance at survival. It's the same thing with the country — radical steps need to be taken.

Will people be willing to sacrifice? Give up entitlements? I don't know. But the good news is, we've done it once before. After America's first bout with progressivism in the early 20th century, we had chemotherapy and we rooted it out. How? Well, there's three ways to fix the mess we are currently in: We can cut spending, raise taxes or print money (which is inflation).

So far all we've tried is tax hikes and inflation. And we've done the complete opposite of cutting spending: We've spent even more. What needs to happen is this: Significant tax cuts, massive budget cuts across the board, and we have to stop devaluing the dollar.

Right now, some viewers are saying, 'Thank God this idiot isn't president — he'd destroy us.' The rest of you are cheering. I just want to warn those of you who are cheering: You may be cheering now, but there is a good chance you won't be when you see this plan we are laying out this week. One thing said about socialism is that everyone's against it until they get some sort of handout from it. Right now about 70 percent of America gets more money in benefits from the government than they pay in. That has to stop. This plan has no sacred cows. Everything is on the table — it's not just the turtle tunnels. Pills for grandma, bombs for defense, you name it.

All week we are going to design a budget unlike anything done in recent memory by government. We'll look at the budget like a business would. Did you know that the GAO is only now figuring out the the Post Office is not a viable business model? A private business would have noticed the billions lost every year a little bit sooner than our government has. And they would attack the problem by making drastic changes, or eliminating it altogether. We are going to look at every budget item, every department, every expense, and start hacking away until we are left with nothing but the bare essentials. This is what businesses and families do during tough times. They look at these three things. We'll be talking to Art Laffer to explain why you can't raise taxes. You'd have to cut the budget. That's what we are going to do this week.

When faced with the option of drastically cutting budgets or drastically raising taxes: Which do you think our current Congress and president will be more likely to do? Gee, I wonder. In the 1930s, as we all know, we were in deep trouble. FDR's idea was massive taxes. At first, he raised it to 63 percent. By the end of the 1930s it was up to 79 percent. He actually tried to get 100 percent of everything above $25,000, but had to settle at 94 percent in 1945.You've got to get the full story on our history at Insider Extreme at Glennbeck.com. Check out our mini documentaries on the progressives. It'll blow your mind.

A recent study by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center found that to reduce the federal budget deficit to a sustainable three percent of gross domestic product, top rates would have to go from the current 33 percent and 35 percent to 72.4 percent and 76.8 percent..

We know the president isn't exactly a 'fiscal conservative,' so don't hold your breath on massive budget cuts. Instead, the president will say 'this was worse than we thought,' and Joe Biden will encourage the rich to do their patriotic duty and pay up.

As New Jersey found out, when you jack up the taxes, the real wealth leaves. They lost $70 billion in four years. The same will happen to America. We should be doing the exact opposite. We should make America a safe haven for that money. If we do something this dramatic, it will signal to the rest of the world that we want your business here. If we build it, they will come; and all of that money will jumpstart America, and we'll jumpstart the world.

If we don't do it. Someone else will. Anyone who dares to report on this will tell you that this would be risky, unheard of, can't be done — and at best it can't be done politically. Let me spell that out - It can be done, everything can be done in America, if we choose! It can't be done politically because we've been expecting Washington to lead us to sensible answers. It's time for us to lead them to what you would do in your life.

— Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

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'

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.

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.
