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.”

 

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
