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.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
