GLENN: Here's the latest ad from the DNC on the Chamber of Commerce.

VOICE: Karl Rove, Ed Gillespie, they're Bush cronies. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is their shield for big business and they're stealing our democracy, spending millions to elect Republicans to do their bidding this Congress. It appears they've even taken secret foreign money to influence our elections. It's incredible

GLENN: It's incredible.

VOICE: from secret foreign money

GLENN: Foreign money.

VOICE: and the Chamber of Commerce to stop stealing our democracy.

PAT: Murder! Murder! Death and mayhem!

GLENN: It really is. It's, like, it's Colonel Mustard. He's in the library with a candle stick.

PAT: Stealing and murdering!

GLENN: It is really amazing. Theblaze.com is leading with one of the stories today, Glenn Beck calls for the largest day of fundraising for Chamber of Commerce. Look. I don't agree with everything on the Chamber of Commerce.

PAT: I don't agree with their murder!

(Laughter.)

GLENN: But do you know what? My father was a member of the Chamber of Commerce. It is they are made up in fact, do you know what? Let me bring on the executive vice president for government affairs, Bruce Josten. Bruce, are you there?

JOSTEN: I am.

GLENN: How are you?

JOSTEN: I'm great. Thank you for having me on today, and thank you for your contribution to the chamber today.

GLENN: You bet.

JOSTEN: You are doing great work. Our friendsoftheuschamber.com website has received in the past hour, Glenn, now, as a result of you, the single highest contribution we've ever received for an entire day and that's just for the first hour.

GLENN: Holy cow. Holy cow.

PAT: That's great.

GLENN: Well, we're not done yet, Bruce. You know, we would like to we would like to help you out. Now, I want to just talk to you a little bit about some things.

JOSTEN: Okay.

GLENN: This is something that just came to me today. I'm so sick and tired of the of Obama admission making you guys into the enemy of the state. First of all, most of your members are companies that are less than 100 employees, right?

JOSTEN: Correct.

GLENN: Can you give me any stats on this?

JOSTEN: Yeah. About 90% of our members have fewer than 100 employees. About 70 plus percent I think it's 73 or 74 percent of our members have fewer than 20 employees. Our membership is basically a reflection of the American economy, which is overwhelmingly dominated, as you well know, by Mom and Pop, Main Street U.S.A. businesses which is where most of the jobs come from in this country.

GLENN: 70% of jobs are created by small business in America. In hard times it's up to 80%. True or false?

JOSTEN: You're right. In fact, it's the newly formed businesses that actually help create a lot of jobs, according to the Calvin Foundation which has been studying this. So, what we've got to do is get people off their heels and moving forward in this country.

GLENN: Now, let me talk to you about

PAT: Murder. What are you stealing? You're receiving contributions from the KGB.

GLENN: Talk to me about all of your foreign donations that are shadowy.

JOSTEN: We have 115 American Chambers of Commerce abroad in 108 foreign countries. Their membership, they're formed by the American subsidiaries of multinational U.S. companies.

GLENN: Oh. Multinational U.S. companies.

JOSTEN: You're right. That's dangerous.

GLENN: Shadowy right there.

JOSTEN: Yeah. They're doing business on the ground, exporting and selling products and much like the 3,000 Chambers of Commerce here in the United States, they're formed to represent, share their interest concerns and problems and have a place for them to get together, try and resolve those issues and make recommendations and, in effect, advocate them to that foreign country. That's No. 1. That compromises around 100 some thousand dollars out of our $200 million budget.

GLENN: How many billions, though?

JOSTEN: I'm sorry?

GLENN: How many billions of dollars are coming from Exxon Mobil

JOSTEN: I wish. Maybe we can get there today. We hope.

GLENN: Yes.

JOSTEN: We also have, by the way, some bilateral business councils U.S. Brazil, U.S. India, U.S. South Korea, on and on. They come and go. Our members ask us interested in a trade. We host that. They determine, by the way, their completely unaffiliated with us, other than we let we provide them accounting support, management support, note taking support. They define their own program of work. They define their own budget. They assess themselves their own dues required to meet their objectives and we host them.

GLENN: Okay. Now

JOSTEN: They get too big and move out of the chamber as independent organizations. Some stay. Not threatening to anybody, but, again, a problem solving council. We're two groups have and they have two meetings a year, one in the United States and one wherever it is abroad, to try and promote trade.

GLENN: That's a bilateral what?

JOSTEN: Business council.

GLENN: Okay. I'm just I want to help George Soros out here. Here's your next DNC ad. They are a part of a bilateral council which sounds like a trilateral

PAT: Commission.

GLENN: commission.

PAT: It does.

GLENN: Which is shadowy and spooky.

STU: It appears.

GLENN: It appears to be, to those who are into the shadow conspiracies and you heard it out of his own mouth. It sounds like trilateral. There you go. I just want to help them out.

Now, let me ask you a couple of tricky questions here because I just made a donation to you or have we made it yet?

JOSTEN: You have.

GLENN: We have?

JOSTEN: You made a significant donation.

GLENN: I've been trying to get online and it's been down, but I guess we Joe's made it. So, here is the

JOSTEN: It's friendsoftheuschamber.com. It's probably getting a little busy as a result of your promotion.

GLENN: What is it? Friends of the

JOSTEN: friendsoftheuschamber.com or smallbusinessnation.com, either one. If people are having trouble on one, they can go to the other site.

GLENN: Okay. Now, here's where we disagree. I disagree with the idea of open borders and everything else. I believe in the rule of law and enforce our own laws. I don't demonize those people who are here. They're people who have come here illegally and they really do want to I mean, if I were a family if I was a dad and I had a family in Mexico, damn right, if I saw America not enforcing their own laws and I could get out of a country that is spiralling out of control and closer and closer to a drug narco state, you bet I would get out of there. So, it's not about them. It's about us. We need to enforce our own laws, while we make the door of our country bigger and easier to bring people in legally so we know who's here.

JOSTEN: I would completely agree with what you just said, which is why we have consistently pointed out the Federal Government has a track record of abject failure here. They are in charge of the border. They are in charge of immigration policy. We have, for a long time, advocated reform of that system. Our borders clearly need to be protected. The safety of our border citizens, our national security are all important, as well as ensuring legitimate trade and travel between people. So, we are on the exact same page.

Now, our members also want a stable and a legal workforce and the uncertainty that surrounds this, in the past year well, actually in the first quarter of this year, 45 states, states, not the Federal Government, introduced nearly 1200 different pieces of legislation over this, again because of the failure of the Federal Government. So, we have a rather unresponsive Visa program. We have to correct our own problems. We can't be the only country in the world that doesn't have secure borders.

PAT: Exactly. So, it sounds like you're saying that I mean, are you are you saying that you support, you know, securing the border first and then working out the rest of it afterward or are you more along the lines of the Democrat proposal, which is this comprehensive immigration reform which really means that it's a path to citizenship, that it does nothing for the border, all of those things?

GLENN: It's the same thing that happened in the 1980's. Fool me once

JOSTEN: The reality is do we want comprehensive immigration reform? Absolutely, in part for the two points he just mentioned, but the reality politically is you're not going to get the comprehensive immigration reform until we address and secure the borders of this country.

GLENN: I don't think I disagree with you on that.

PAT: Only in that the comprehensive reform that we continually hear about is not the reform we're talking about.

GLENN: You're not as long as we have the borders secure, then I'm willing to talk

PAT: Then you talk about it, yeah.

GLENN: I'm willing to talk to you about anything.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But you've got to shut the water off first.

PAT: Exactly.

GLENN: That doesn't mean you go back to the back of the line

JOSTEN: and now deceased former senator Ted Kennedy to try and approach and result in a piece of legislation that would accomplish those types of objectives. We're going to have to continue to work on it.

GLENN: Okay. Well, I just wanted to get you on the phone. I'm glad that just in the first hour, it's the biggest fundraising day ever. We wanted to make it your biggest of the day. This just came to me about an hour ago and

JOSTEN: We're glad, as well, and again we thank you because with what's taking place, demonizing and vilifying people that have an opposing viewpoint from a President who ran, as you well know, on a platform of changing the tone and hope and change.

GLENN: He's changed it.

JOSTEN: He changed it for the worse at this point.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And the interesting thing about that is that on the one hand they're demonizing you. Then two days ago he used your organization to try to promote his own agenda.

JOSTEN: Right.

PAT: He used you as an example of something you guys are supporting that it's amazing, the hypocrisy.

GLENN: In the history of the country, because there's something that nobody reports on and, that is, I have four advisors, direct advisors to the President of the United States, four of them, doing four different campaigns to try to boycott and destroy my business. It's never been done before in American history. No one will report on it. You notice you've never read that.

JOSTEN: Right.

GLENN: That's quite a claim to make. If that were not true, you would think you would read: Glenn Beck lies again. I've said that now for over a year on radio, television. Not one word has been printed on that.

JOSTEN: Yeah.

GLENN: It's never happened before in American history. Can you tell me, in the history of the chamber, has there ever been a coordinated attack like this on the chamber ever done by anybody in government like this?

JOSTEN: Nothing like this. Now, we've had some spats and tough times with different administrations, both Republicans and Democrats, yes. I kind of view any administration is going to do something with the business community and the chamber, some things for the business community and some things to it, but never such an avalanche of a continuous broadside attack of misleading inferences and allegations and, by the way, from somebody whose, I believe, president graduated from Harvard Law, taught law, and has turned the principle of innocent until proven guilty on its head. It's now guilty until proven innocent.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I've never heard anything like it. What was it that Joe Biden said? Do you have that article from Joe Biden, Stu? What was it that Joe Biden said, where he said, Prove to us, prove to us that this isn't happening. Where does that come from?

JOSTEN: He also, a few days ago in a public speech, when defining their accomplishments said, It's too hard to explain.

GLENN: Yeah. (Laughter.) Well, it is hard to explain. I will give you that.

JOSTEN: We would like to debate policy. The ads we have up right now draw a distinction, for example, on the basis of protection and affordable care act which we oppose. We are more than willing to debate anybody on policy grounds, but we are not going to stoop to name calling and outlandish allegations and I think people would like to distract and divert our attention because that's exactly what they are trying to do, divert attention away from their policies. So, I would like to and this organization are going to stay focused on what's important to the American people, which is our economy and their jobs and their livelihoods and their families and turning this thing around.

GLENN: Small businesses America, if you get one thing, get this: Small businesses create 80% of all jobs, not government, not giant corporations, small businesses, people like you saying, I've got an idea, and you hire two people. 80% of all jobs in a recession are created by small business people. The people that are protecting the small business people and I don't agree with them on everything is the Chamber of Commerce. The other thing you need to understand, this government has targeted the chamber unlike anybody that I have seen, except maybe us and FOX News. They are targeting the chamber. I can tell you one thing from experience. If this administration targets you as hard as they have the chamber, it means you're a threat to them and they're you're making a difference.

I put my money where my mouth is. I made a donation today myself. I urge you to do the same. You can find the link at glennbeck.com or you can go to give me the direct link.

JOSTEN: Well, you can go to friendsoftheuschamber.com, uschambersmallbusinessnation.com, or if those two are overloaded, as they have been, my staff just told me they are blocked right now because of your listeners, to simply go to uschamber.com and from there you can link there will be a place for them to click.

GLENN: Okay. Thank you very much, Bruce. I appreciate it.

JOSTEN: Thank you.

GLENN: You bet. Even if it's $10, you can disagree with some of the things but if we don't stand united, they're not going to be small businesses to be able to stand.

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'

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

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.

The time for metaphors is over; the House of Representatives just instituted wokeness into policy.

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.
