Ocasio-Cortez and her band of progressive 'Super Friends' want to 'MAGA' FDR style

Be careful what you wish for. That should be one of the fundamental principles of politics. Yet, no one in the history of politics anywhere on the planet seems to grasp this concept before it's too late for them and their side.

The street-brawl politics of President Trump may garner some wins along the way, but in the process, it's helping create a monster on the Left. I warned about this. And now it's happening.

At the annual Netroots Nation conference last weekend, a gathering of over 3,000 progressive activists projected a clear message that they won't support a moderate Democrat to take on President Trump in 2020. They're going all-in on the crazy Left. That's why Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were all assembled for this conference – the Socialist Avengers.

Even though they have data from reports within their own party about a large, moderate Democrat base in the middle of the country that feels ignored and alienated by the radical takeover of the Democratic Party, the socialists in the party are plowing ahead. Their far-Left agenda includes universal health care, abolishing ICE, legalizing marijuana, and reversing the effects of global warming. You know, the important stuff.

Ocasio-Cortez told CNN that they want to "come home" to ideas proposed by their favorite American socialist hero, Franklin D. Roosevelt. She said, "We are picking up where we left off when we were at our most powerful, when we were at our greatest."

She's pining for the good ol' days when the closest we've ever come to a dictator ran roughshod over America.

Wait a minute, read that again – "when we were at our most powerful, when we were at our greatest." She's not talking about everyday Americans there. She's pining for the good ol' days when the closest we've ever come to a dictator ran roughshod over America.

I thought the Left hated the "Make America Great Again" thing because it supposedly tries to drag the country back into the past. But looking back to FDR as your model for greatness is a cutting-edge approach?

Apparently so. The Socialist Avengers assembled more of their retro plan for American excellence that would warm FDR's heart, including expanding Social Security, free college tuition, a student debt-bailout, and a federal jobs guarantee.

All those freebies remind me of another old saying that people rarely apply to politics – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
