The Democrats

It is a month before the election. Democrats are doing everything in their power to hold on to power.

The media is circulating a flurry of stories about polls tightening, Democrats gaining momentum, Republicans not having the House of Representatives in the bag, etc. Guess what? In 1994, they ran the same stories.

Soon we will see a series of stories, just like in 1994, that proclaim a Republican victory disastrous for conservatives because so many moderates will be committee chairmen. That became the talking point when the media and the left, but I repeat myself, could no longer deny a Republican wave.

The Democrats have one final trick up their sleeve — the dirty trick. Take Georgia’s 8th Congressional District as just one of many examples.

In that district, Republican challenger Austin Scott is tied with or beating Democratic incumbent Jim Marshall. The district leans Republican. In the last two mid-term election cycles, Marshall has only beaten his Republican challenger by one percent. The Democrats, two weeks ago, released an “internal” poll that had Marshall ahead by twelve points. Nobody believes it. Marshall is running scared and running to the right.

Candidates running twelve points ahead of an upstart challenger with little name identification do not campaign the way Marshall is campaigning.

In fact, Marshall is running scared largely because he is hated by the left for abandoning Nancy Pelosi too frequently and hated by the right for voting for Pelosi as Speaker and for being a liberal who pretends to be a conservative. Full disclosure: Jim Marshall was my law school professor. He is decidedly liberal.

Seats like Marshall’s are the seats the Democrats must hang on to if they intend to keep the House. That the Democrats are going for a series of dirty tricks and October Surprises instead of issues gives the clearest indication yet of how scared they are.

Democrat blogger Amy Morton, who I know and whose husband is the 8th Congressional District Chairman for the Georgia Democratic Party, has filed suit in Tift County Superior Court, the court in Austin Scott’s home county, to unseal Austin Scott’s divorce records from his first wife.

Scott and his ex-wife mutually agreed to seal their divorce records when Scott entered politics to protect their child from his parents’ laundry being aired in a dirty campaign.

Superior Court Judge Melanie Cross has ordered a hearing to be held one week before the November election. One week — plenty of time for the media to report the salacious details of the hearing while dragging out the story in case the judge does not immediately unseal the records.

The kicker, of course, is that Judge Cross is not going to preside at the hearing even though she ensured the matter would be dealt with before the general election. Why?

Well, Judge Cross is a $1,000.00 donor to Congressman Jim Marshall. She donated in 2006 before becoming a judge. Cross cannot now give Marshall donations because of her status on the bench, but her husband gave Marshall another $1,000.00 earlier this year.

In other words, you have a Jim Marshall donor setting a hearing at a time designed to give maximum impact to the allegations and minimum time for defense at the request of the wife of a prominent Democratic Party official then handing the case over to a judge without a dog in the fight.

In addition to abusing the integrity of the judicial system, it is a Democrat dirty trick done in desperation.

Across the country Democrats are doing this. In Nevada, the Democrats have started a whisper campaign about Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle. In Wisconsin, Democrats are attacking Republican Sean Duffy for appearing on MTV’s “Real World” and circulating footage of Duffy from years ago on the show. In Pennsylvania, Democrats are trying to tie Pat Toomey to Wall Street using Toomey’s job from years ago in the financial sector.

Democrats are scared. Like cornered animals the Democrats are lashing out with everything they can — including abuses of the legal system — to fend off Republican challengers.

The stock market recently had its worst day since the early days of the pandemic and, just like in September 2008, many investors fear a dangerous chain reaction is starting on Wall Street. But that's just a small part of the bigger picture. The housing market is also taking a historic hit, grocery prices are out of control, energy prices are skyrocketing across Europe, and America is close behind.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck compared this year's stock market trends with what happened before the 2008 crash, detailed Europe’s bleak energy outlook, and explained why he believes they’re heading for economic "hell."

"Europe is about to go through hell," Glenn said. "A nightmare is about to hit. But, please, fear not. The heavens are engaged. Are you engaged with the heavens? You are not going to convince God to be on your side. We must be on his side. Realign everything in your life, now, so you can be on his side, and together we will weather all of these storms."

California Democrats are leading the way on green spending, but what do they have to show for it?

In this clip, Glenn discusses California's crippling energy shortage and pleas to its citizens to stop cooling their homes during the current heat wave. Elected officials want Californians to buy electric vehicles and stop charging them, leaving Glenn to deduce that California lawmakers want people to stay home.

California's grid is under such strain that it requires a power plant in Oakland that burns jet fuel to continue operating through the end of next year to keep the lights on. "That sounds green as crap, doesn't it?" Glenn snarked. Can Americans continue to shrug this off as only California’s problem? Well, between the 17 states who have bound themselves to California by law, how long will it be before the rest of America begins to feel the impact in their lives?

The average price for a gas-powered vehicle is approximately $48,000, while the average price for an electric car is more than $66,000. And according to a study from the Hoover Institution, California will have to double its grid to meet the EV demand.

Watch as Glenn walks through the challenges and the proposed "solutions" out of California.

After tense negotiations between Amtrak, its workers, and the White House, Biden has announced that they've reached a "tentative deal" to avoid a national rail strike.

Reuters reported:

U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak would resume normal operations Friday as it works to quickly restore canceled trains after a freight rail labor deal was announced, averting a rail shutdown.

"We're saved!" Glenn said on Thursday's radio program. Pay no attention to what was happening just a few months ago with this deal or the fact that it is nearing the midterms. Just stand in awe of the totally coherent Joe Biden and his unquestionable cognitive ability to intervene in negotiations with the union workers and save America.

"This is political theatre at its finest," Glenn said. In this video, Glenn performed a one-man political theater show and illustrated why some might be led to believe that the whole Amtrak debacle was strategically planned — and on International Democracy Day to boot.

San Francisco Chronicle reported that catalytic converter thieves targeted police vehicles earlier this week.

According to police, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, an SFPD officer discovered that a catalytic converter had been stolen off of a police truck in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. A spokesperson said the officer later noticed multiple police vehicles had been hit by thieves.

No arrests have been made. Multiple officer injuries have been reported in connection to catalytic converter theft incidents.

As San Francisco police were targeted by catalytic converter thieves, House Rep. Nancy Pelosi was in D.C., along with President Joe Biden, and told the American people about the totally successful and not at all disastrous Inflation Reduction Act. Glenn Beck covered the spectacle on his radio program and called the gathering "the worst propaganda ever devised."
