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.”

 

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
