The left has lost more than they gained in the midterms. Here's why.

It was the most expensive midterm election in modern history. Record amounts of cash poured in. From the very next day after the 2016 election, the left was out marching and hashtag resisting. They designed ridiculous-looking hats and even weaponized high school kids, plastering them all over cable news. And then later — because why not? — leading a march of their own on Washington, D.C. The Blue Wave was coming!

Aaaaand... then last night happened.

The Blue Wave ended up being a Blue... ripple. Yes, Democrats now control the House, but they actually lost seats in the Senate.

Is one step forward but one step backward what the left was hoping for? Is picking up around 20 seats in the House a Blue Wave? In the 2010 midterm elections, the GOP picked up 63 seats when they took over the House. That was a wave.

So what does all this mean? Well, for me, the biggest lesson from all this is not what Democrats have gained — the House — but rather what they've lost. The perceived narrative was that anyone who didn't agree with the left was instantly and permanently branded a fascist, a bigot, a racist and even a nazi.

If a Blue Wave would have actually happened, it would have justified their accusations — at least in their eyes. But half the country wasn't fazed by this. They stood their ground and boldly declared, "WE WON'T BE COWERED BY THAT! YOU CAN'T SCARE US WITH THIS ANY MORE!"

The media's headlines today highlight America's division, but I actually saw unity.

The media's headlines today highlight America's division, but I actually saw unity. And not only among the right-leaning voters, but also among the right-leaning media. Last night, something happened that I've been hoping to see since I started this little project... my company. I've been looking for those of us outside traditional media to stand together.

During our election coverage we had collaboration with CRTV, the Daily Wire, and the Daily Caller... it was amazing. We all shared content together.

So the left won the House, but they might just have lost their biggest tool — their ability to use shame, guilt and fear as a weapon. Democrats, you have the House. Why don't you use it to show us what you really stand for? Will it just be to launch petty investigations to continue whining about what you lost back in 2016, or will you actually try and get something done?

I mean, you got killed in the Senate, so you won't get anything done anyway — but still — show us if there's more substance to you than name-calling and division.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

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?
