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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
