Former never-Trumper James Lindsay on why he just CAN'T vote for Joe Biden

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Is your wallet ON FIRE? You can thank Bidenomics for that.

Biden has been touting the alleged success of his economic plan. But why are 61 percent of U.S. consumers living paycheck to paycheck? In Wednesday's Glenn TV episode, Glenn showed you all the ways that the Biden admin has been skewing economic figures in their favor to boost their PR campaign. But one thing is for certain: the Biden admin's reckless spending continues to drive up inflation. You feel this every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car with gas.

What's worse? The Biden admin doesn't even factor in groceries and gas into their inflation rate! Don't be fooled when they boast that they've brought interest rates down. The prices of products the average American consumes every day remain nearly doubled to what it was under the Trump admin.

See for yourself. Here is a side-by-side comparison of the most popular grocery items priced under the Trump admin and the Biden admin.

Cost of 1 Dozen Eggs

Price of 1lb. Ground Beef

Price of 1lb. Chicken

Price of 1 Gallon of Milk

Price of 1 Liter of Soda

Price of 1 Loaf of Bread

The residents of Lahaina are still reeling from enduring the deadliest wildfire in US history. 115 people have been confirmed dead. An estimated three 3,000 homes have been destroyed. Nearly 5,000 people are displaced. Hundreds, if not over a thousand residents are still missing, including many children.

How did such a horrendous tragedy occur? Hawaiian Electric is taking the brunt of the blame, but your blood will begin to boil when you hear of the MANY preventative measures that were NOT taken.

Hawaiian Electric refused to update their aging equipment, even though they knew it posed a severe wildfire threat. Why? Because they did not align with the government's woke climate agenda. Hawaii passed a 2015 law requiring Hawaii’s energy to be 100 percent renewable by 2045—the first U.S. state to make such a requirement. In 2017, Hawaiian Electric claimed that it would fulfill the mandate five years ahead of schedule. The green push from the leftist Hawaiian government disincentivized Hawaiian Electric to comply with the safety standards of its current equipment. This wildfire was absolutely avoidable.

The green push from the leftist Hawaiian government disincentivized Hawaiian Electric to comply with the safety standards.

In Wednesday's Glenn TV special, Glenn laid out ALL of the climate standards that jeopardized Hawaii's fire safety and the poor decisions that resulted in the deadliest wildfire in US history.

To make matters worse, property developers are preying upon the desperation of the Lahaina victims, proposing to buy their decimated properties at a dismal price before the victims have even been allowed to step back onto their land since the fires.

Campaign from JAIL? Here are the TOP 4 takeaways from Glenn's TRUMP interview

President Trump joined Glenn on-air yesterday on the Glenn Beck Program. In their 25 minutes together, Glenn asked Trump the burning questions that the American people want answered from one of the most controversial political figures in American history. Here are the key takeaways from the interview.

1. Will Trump "lock people up" if he becomes President?

When Trump first ran for President in 2020, he said that he wouldn't make any formal arrests, even though he was facing the blatant corruption of Hilary Clinton and the now-disproven Russian collusion conspiracies. Glenn asked Trump if he regrets refusing to hold these people legally responsible who are now using their same corrupt practices to put him in jail.

Trump said:

The answer is, you have no choice because they're doing it to us.

What do you think about Trump's indictments and the possibility of him holding his political opponents legally accountable?

2. Will Trump run a campaign from a jail cell?

The Left seems more determined than ever to prohibit Trump from re-election. They have weaponized both the government and the judicial system to hinder his campaign. If they succeed, is Trump willing and able to run his campaign from jail? Glenn asked Trump this pointed question during their interview.

Trump seemed confident that he will not serve jail time. He responded to Glenn:

I don't think [serving jail time] is ever happening. We have a great case. Every case [made against me] has been a scam.

Trump acknowledged the Deep State is comprised of "sick people" who are willing to do anything to stop his campaign. However, his remarks to Glenn indicated he is confident in the strength of his case to withstand his current onslaught of indictments.

3. A lot of people feel like the republic is over. How can we ensure we have a fair election if the GOP won't do anything?

Trump didn't have a very hopeful answer to this question. The former president remarked how the GOP is "not tough enough," especially when compared to the lengths the Democrats are willing to go to ensure their desired outcome of elections.

Trump said, "The Democrats are dirty payers. They lie, they cheat, what they do is unbelievable with ballots and every conceivable form of cheating." So how can the GOP stand up to the Democrats to ensure a free and fair election? Trump didn't say. But he seemed to have little confidence in election integrity as long as it's run by the Democrats.

4. Have you thought of Vice President Ramaswamy?

Could we have a Vice President Ramaswamy? It's definitely a possibility!

When Glenn asked what Trump thought of Vivek, he answered, "I think he's great. He's a young guy, he's got a lot of talent, he's a very intelligent person, he's got a lot of energy."

Vivek, a frequent guest on the Glenn Beck Program, has been a staunch Trump supporter and defender of Trump-era policies. Is he gunning for the VP role? If so, it seems to be working!
