Ben Sasse is my new Spirit Animal

If someone were to ask you, "why do you vote Republican" what would your answer be? Would it be, "well anything's better than whomever the Democrats are rolling out" or "because I'm Alpha and you're Beta and RAWR!" If you're a Democrat listening to this show, first I want to congratulate you for probably being the only one out there, but I also want to extend the same question to you. Why do you vote Democrat? Is it purely opposition? Is it because you believe in identity politics or Democratic Socialism? Or maybe that's just the way the tide is rolling and your stuck?

The reason I ask is because all the identifiers I just attached to both parties, appear to be the long-term agendas for each. The GOP is turning into an opposition party, both to the Democrats and the media, and their principles are being boiled down to loyalty to whomever they have currently in office. Likewise, Democrats are a party of opposition to all things GOP, and they're hurtling towards cultural division and Democratic Socialism. What is the long-term vision for either party? What does the party leadership stand for?

On Saturday Senator Ben Sasse tweeted that he regularly considers dropping the GOP and going Independent. And oh did he anger the Republican and right-leaning twitterverse. "What a BETA!!! He should support the President!"

On Sunday Senator Sasse went on Jake Tapper to explain himself.

Umm, did Ben Sasse just become my Spirit Animal? I think he just did. In one paragraph he mentioned job disruption from technology, the future of war and cyberwar, civil unrest and how the media is feeding off of our outrage.

He's absolutely right, and it's refreshing to finally see someone have the balls to actually say it. We have massive problems. Some are already here now, and some will be here very soon. But no one in Washington is concerned with doing anything about it. They have no plan. All they care about is harnessing your anger due to their screw-ups over the past couple of decades. Think about that. They want us to get angry over the things they've done in order to give them (Republicans and Democrats) more power. Meanwhile, nothing ever changes. Nothing ever gets better.

Senator Sasse is right. The system was never meant to be a two party system.

Senator Sasse is right. The system was never meant to be a two party system. How many more Senators and Congressmen feel like Ben Sasse? Step out of the shadows. Start something new. Something based off of principle and values. The Republican Party was founded in 1854. Six years later they'd hold the White House. It can happen again.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
