Don’t sell out, don’t sit down, and don’t shut up

by Sara J.

Tea Party: a little over a year ago, you had the establishment freaking out. You were taking hits from every mainstream media outlet on both sides of the aisle, but it didn’t slow you down. You took out GOP establishment incumbents one by one in primaries, and you didn’t stop there: you went on to take back the House by a landslide; in fact, if was one of the biggest wins in American history.

With all that under your belt, I’m trying to figure why the Tea Party has decided to throw in the towel. Is that really all you’ve got? What ever happened to perseverance? Do progressives really have that much more endurance than you? Don’t you remember how it felt not just to beat the left, not just to beat the establishment on the right, but to get real leaders of character in office? I thought you were the group of Americans with values and principles? I thought is was your conviction that man’s rights are given to him by God, not government. I guess I was wrong. The Constitution, limited government, and real freedom must have just seemed like a good idea, because you don’t just lower the bar on convictions. The Tea Party didn’t choose from the options passed down by the establishment in November 2010. You went out, found real leaders, and won. In fact you got the most epic gloat fest of all time, when it was all said and done.

This election should be one where the Tea Party takes everything the mainstream media says and tosses it out the window. Unfortunately, that’s not what’s happening. We’ve been thrown into this ridiculous argument of who is and isn’t “electable.” After everything that has happened in the last three years: the Healthcare law, finance reform, countless DOJ scandals, establishment GOP ganging up on the Tea Party, you’re going to buy into the mainstream media’s argument of whom the best candidates are? Are we ever going to find a perfect candidate? No. Can we find one that shares our core values? Yes.

For conservatives, this entire election has been positioned around the repeal of Obamacare. How is it that the two highest polling candidates are Newt Gingrich, who supports an individual mandate, or did for 20+ years until it became unpopular, and Mitt Romney, who implemented government run healthcare in his own state while he was the governor? How has one of these candidates lifted to the top of the polls for grassroots conservatives? Is the Tea Party really buying into the establishment's argument about who is the most “electable?” And are these candidates actually the most electable? How are their policies going to fly in a debate against Barack Obama?

Moderator: Mr. President, you implemented an individual mandate in your healthcare plan that is now being challenge by the Supreme Court. Is or isn’t an individual mandate for healthcare reform constitutional?

Barack Obama: I don’t know, I got the idea from Newt Gingrich, then we designed the rest of the bill around Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts healthcare plan.

I’m sure that will appeal to the voters that are on the fence… What could a moderator throw at a candidate like Michele Bachmann or Rick Santorum in a debate that would hurt them—traditional marriage, their faith, no instances of adultery, “MSNBC says your crazy”? Oh the horror of a clean record! If we are going to have a discussion about who is and isn’t electable in an election, can we at least look at the big picture?

If I remember correctly, Senator John McCain was a “moderate” conservative in the last election. We were sold this same argument about who could and could not win the election on a national scale. That worked out really well didn’t it? John McCain didn’t rise in the polls until an unknown conservative, Governor Sarah Palin, entered the race. And despite the disgusting attacks on her from the media, she is still the number one choice for many of you. How do you go from supporting Sarah Palin to Newt Gingrich, a guy who has been saying FDR is the greatest president of the 19th century for years and says Andy Stern is a “forward looking leader”?

This week, a friend of mine told me that in order to get independents and moderates to vote against Obama, we have to choose one of the more moderate candidates. I completely reject this argument. If you want to change someone’s mind, if you want to provide a better option for Americans that are on the fence and feel disenfranchised by both parties, give them a candidate who actually believes in what they’re running for. Give them a candidate that they may not agree with on all of the issues, but still respects for walking their talk. We want a choice this election—hot or cold, up or down, left or right, conservative or liberal. In 2008 we had a Republican candidate that was pro-choice, for gun control, and wasn’t going to protect our border. We now have a Democrat president that is pro-choice, for gun control and still doesn’t protect our border. Why are we repeating these mistakes? Or, do you actually believe in the progressive policies of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney?

Tea Party, don’t sell out, don’t sit down, and don’t shut up. You fought hard for candidates like Michele Bachmann last November. She was Nancy Pelosi’s number one target in the last election, and she won. Why are you giving up on her and other candidates who want to restore the founding values and principals of America? Because the media tells you it’s the only way to win? Since when do members of the mainstream media know what winning looks like? They have to lie, cheat, and cover up the truth to get the candidates they want elected into office. Newsflash: the media is losing. Please remember how shocked they all were last November when Tea Party candidates were knocking off Republicans and Democrats one by one.

A true conservative with moral authority over their own life will be the final blow to the agenda of the mainstream media and a huge loss of power to the establishment in Washington D.C. Kill two birds with one stone, and stand up for what you believe in this election. If you don’t stand by your convictions regardless of the outcome, then it is a waste of time to have them in the first place. Don’t throw the last three years of organizing, fund raising, meetings, and withstanding attacks from all sides away. You can beat the establishment, but first you have to support a candidate that represents your values. You aren’t stuck with a progressive Republican yet, so stop acting like you are. This is why we have primary elections. Now stand up, square your shoulders, and support a candidate that will stand firm on the principals of the Constitution.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
