No matter who is in power, the sneaky Cheshire Cats in the Republican Party or flip-flopping Mad Hatters in the Democrat Party, we don’t know who to trust or what to believe anymore. Everyone is running around in circles like they’re at a crazy tea party while all of us rational observers are watching through the looking glass trying to figure out what’s real and what’s an illusion.

As if the last administration’s belligerent Empire-building power grab wasn’t bad enough, just look at what the Democrats have had to say about national security over the years in Wonderland.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Alice: “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”

Bill Clinton: “The hard fact is that so long as Saddam remains in power, he threatens the well-being of his people, the peace of his region, the security of the world.” – December 1998

Alice: “I don’t believe there’s an atom of meaning in it.”

Bill Clinton: “I have repeatedly defended President Bush against the left on Iraq, even though I think he should have waited until the U.N. inspections were over.” – June 2004

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Joe Biden: “First, we can stick with the status quo and try to muddle through [it in Iraq]. I think that is a prescription for failure. It is not working now. And nothing leads me to believe that it can work. Second, we call it quits and withdraw: I think that would be a gigantic mistake... Or we can set a deadline for pulling out, which I fear will only encourage our enemies to wait us out, equally a mistake.” – June 2005

Alice: “I think I should understand that better, if I had it written down: But I can’t quite follow it as you say it.”

Joe Biden: “The only rational purpose for troops in Iraq now: Train Iraqis, prevent al-Qaeda from occupying large chunks of territory and we should begin to decentralize the government. That’s the underlying essence of what the language in this [war spending] bill is about. It says, though, start now to redeploy and have as a target to get out by April 1st the bulk of the combat troops. I strongly subscribe to that view.” – April 2007

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Nancy Pelosi: “Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.” – December 1998

Alice: “The question is whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

Nancy Pelosi: “The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence... He embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition.” – January 2004

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Hillary Clinton: “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members...” – October 2002

Hillary Clinton: “We don’t want to send a signal to insurgents, to the terrorists, that we are going to be out of here at some, you know, date certain.” – December 2005

Hillary Clinton: “I think it’s the height of irresponsibility and I really resent it — this was [Bush’s] decision to go to war, he went with an ill-conceived plan, an incompetently executed strategy, and we should expect him to extricate our country from this before he leaves office.” – January 2007

Alice: “Curiouser and curiouser!”

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Barack Obama: “[We’ve] got to make sure that we secure and execute the rebuilding and reconstruction process effectively and properly. And I don’t think we should have an artificial deadline when to do that.” – December 2004

Alice: “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!”

Barack Obama: “[As] commander-in-chief, I have determined that it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan. After 18 months, our troops will begin to come home.” – December 2009

Alice: “But I don’t want to go among mad people.”

 

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
