After all that testimony, it still comes down to who you believe

Finally, yesterday was the big day. After two weeks of sniping that felt like two months, the Senate Judiciary Committee finally heard testimony from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford.

After all the allegations, innuendos, exclusive interviews, and negotiations, Americans had the chance to make up their minds whether Brett Kavanaugh is worthy of being nominated to the Supreme Court, or whether he's a scumbag. Actually, people's minds were already made up before a single question was asked. And that was the frustrating part of the eight-hour-long charade – there is no way to discern the absolute truth about what allegedly happened 36 years ago.

It was a big moment for the nation yesterday, with no real upside. Nothing was really resolved, except to check the box that both the accused and the alleged victim had the opportunity to testify. It was really just a political show. And boy did we get a show. One highlight was Senator Cory Booker suddenly showing a love for the Declaration of Independence when he quoted, "our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor." Maybe he thinks that's a Spartacus quote.

Republicans tried to point out the political gamesmanship of Democrats in their desperation to block Kavanaugh. Democrats tried to convince America that Democrats have a monopoly on caring for women.

In the end, it was all very predictable.

In the end, it was all very predictable.

In their questioning of Ford, Democrats reiterated Ford's "heroism" in coming forward with her allegation. Ford received no tough questions from Democrats because they believe her story unconditionally. Now the trend is to believe survivors at all cost.

But it wasn't always that way. They conveniently forgot how the Left never believed Juanita Broaddrick's sexual assault allegation against Bill Clinton.

Democrats also repeatedly complained about the lack of an FBI investigation into Ford's story. But short of time-travel, it's hard to understand how they think the FBI would be able to discover anything conclusive about 36-year-old generalized allegations. And let's be honest, if these allegations against Kavanaugh have any merit, and the FBI never found a hint of them through multiple previous background checks, then the FBI is dangerously incompetent.

Judiciary Committee chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley, reminded the room of Kavanaugh's previous FBI background checks, but it doesn't matter, because minds were already made up.

The alternating format of the hearing, bouncing between Republican and Democratic senators made it impossible to truly examine Ford's claims. Every five minutes, serious questions from prosecutor Rachel Mitchell were interrupted by glowing tributes from Democrats about Ford's bravery and heroism. When it was Kavanaugh's turn, the hearing format provided relief from the SNL-like absurdity of Democrats grilling him about teenage inside jokes from his 1982 high school yearbook.

For his part, Kavanaugh was emphatic and surprisingly emotional during his opening statement.

For his part, Kavanaugh was emphatic and surprisingly emotional during his opening statement. He forcefully denied Ford's accusation. He was clearly annoyed by the Democrats' role in turning his confirmation hearing into a circus, and blamed them for ruining his family's life over the past two weeks.

Ford came off looking like a confused damsel in distress. She was often flustered and could barely answer a question without advice from her two lawyers. Still, she was mostly believable.

Kavanaugh came off looking understandably angry and rattled at times. His answers to all the questions about his high school beer consumption didn't do him any favors. Yet, he was also believable.

There was a lot of talk yesterday about what the hearing was not – that it wasn't a court trial, nor was it really a job interview for Kavanaugh. What it was, for the most part, was a complete joke.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.



Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
