Compassion Fatigue or Federal Scam?

According to executive director of the National Coalition for the Homeless Neil Donovan, “compassion fatigue” is the cause for the new ordinances being passed in cities across the United States outlawing homeless people from living on the streets, anti-food-sharing laws, and anti-camping laws.

But are Americans really growing tired of the homeless? Are we so tired of the less fortunate we want big government to step in and take care of the “problem”? Hardly.

Americans are tired of people living off of our taxes. Americans are tired of being demonized for making money. Americans are tired of the government telling the most charitable among us that they are evil, elitist, greedy and heartless, while they watch their children’s futures are destroyed by their big bloated programs that do nothing but worsen our problems. Americans are quite frankly exhausted of the nanny state causing their children to think they are entitled to everything around them and those that need a hand up becoming sponges of the system who expect a hand out. That’s what Americans are tired of.

Americans are not tired of helping those who need it. Americans are not tired of feeding the hungry or seeing the homeless. They’re tired of the homeless and hungry being used as a weapon by the federal government.

USA Today released an article over the weekend that discussed how cities all over the country are making it harder to be homeless.

Philadelphia recently banned outdoor feeding of people in city parks. Denver has begun enforcing a ban on eating and sleeping on property without permission. And this month, lawmakers in Ashland, Ore., will consider strengthening the town's ban on camping and making noise in public.

And the list goes on: Atlanta, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, Oklahoma City and more than 50 other cities have previously adopted some kind of anti-camping or anti-food-sharing laws, according to the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty.

The ordinances are pitting city officials against homeless advocates. City leaders say they want to improve the lives of homeless people and ensure public safety, while supporters of the homeless argue that such regulations criminalize homelessness and make it harder to live on the nation's streets.

Not only are these cities making it harder to be homeless, they’re making it a crime to be – and they’re doing the same thing to the private organizations and individuals who try to help them. These laws are attempting to sweet the homeless away, hidden from the public so that the American people don’t see them anymore.

Compassion fatigue? No – more like a federal scam. ‘Out of sight, out of mind.”

Last week Glenn announced Mercury One’s Restoring Love National Food Drive – this is why. Big government in many respects is the failure of man to be charitable, to be self-reliant, and to be responsible with their God-given rights. As Americans are waking up to this and changing course, government is using every weapon in their arsenal to fight back and keep power.

They won’t win – not in America.

At a time when there is increasing homelessness and hunger, why are city governments across the country making it increasingly difficult for you, your neighbors, churches and synagogues to feed the hungry? Why, when we have a record number of kids going hungry in America, are our politicians trying to restrict acts of charity?

Because we have something they don’t have – something that government can’t have; compassion – the ability to feed their heart and their hunger.

Mercury One launched their food drive with the goal of filling 11 food trucks to send to 11 cities. Within one hour of Glenn’s announcement that goal was met. Now Mercury One has expanded to many more cities with more trucks. As of last Friday enough food for over 1 million meals had been donated.

How’s that for “compassion fatigue”?

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."
