Listen: Cory Booker, Donald Trump And Kamala Harris discussed on Glenn Beck
"So what are the big stories last year? And what did we learn from them? What did we learn last year? What do you think the biggest story to take information from was an apply this year? They're tough one. Yeah. It's tough. I thought it was cavenaugh. That's mean that was probably the biggest story of the year the biggest single single-story dominated the news for at least what two months it felt like I thought it taught us a lot. And if I if I may I wanna break out some stories that happened last year and say what happened. And is there something that we can find useful to be able to decode the stories that are coming our way or to see what's happening politically. So let's start with Cavanaugh. I think that the cavenaugh story taught us many things, but most of them are revolve around twenty nine thousand nine is an election year. And it doesn't it doesn't matter. What happens what anyone says it's all positioning now for twenty twenty. That's all this is and that was really the start of the election year. It was it really why you saw people. I mean, the easiest examples are people like Cory Booker. I am Spartacus and the ridiculous Kamala Harris stuff, they're all trying to position themselves as I I am so against Donald Trump and the things he's doing that. I will even break the law to do it. Remember, Cory Booker. Yes. I'll break the law. I'm basically, this is my Spartak as moment, which brings me to one of the things specifically that we should learn from last year, and that is that Democrats have no stop on taxes mean. Sorry on tactics. No stops. No. They it does not matter anymore. Make use of a guy of gang rape with no evidence. Where do you go from there outside of actual physical violence, where do you go outside of that? But if you look at one of the other big stories of the year it was school shootings. Also, no stop. They had. No stop on that. So what do we take from that? Well, we take that. It's an election year that the Democrats will say or do anything to get elected. They will use any emergency at all. And they will actually stand in claim to be Spartacus when it makes no sense, which is leads me to what we should learn and that is. They don't work anymore. It doesn't really work anymore. And for a couple of reasons we have so unhinged from reality that people think of those tactics as a joke. When when you're shutting down the government, we know that the government's not going to default. We know that the government is still the airplanes are still gonna fly. We know all those things the scare tactics don't work anymore and people are at the end of their tolerance level for this kind of stuff the Cory booker's standing up. I am Spartacus doesn't work the making charges and allegations without any evidence to back it up. It doesn't work for a couple of reasons. One the Democrats have no stops. And so they overplay their hand that will continue and to the media isn't his powerful as it once was. Yeah. I think there's a time in which if you made a completely unsubstantiated argument and said Brad Kavanagh is a gang rapist. There was a time in which that probably does work so far out like you wouldn't say. That if it wasn't true or if you didn't have evidence. And now, I think the American people are at the point where yes, they will say that if there's no evidence we've seen them do it five hundred times. So I'm not going to believe it and what you're talking about. I think too when it comes to the election part is there is these guys are totally incentivize to make this worse when you are sitting there and your Elizabeth Warren, and and you're going against Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and Beddoe Aurora and all of these guys who have to get left wing activists to vote for them and donate money to them. They are just going to be a constant contest to flop over themselves and move left. It's going to get crazier, and this is going to be a fun year in that in that if you'd like if you like watching the nonsense it's going to be a fun year for it. The defects on the nation are a whole nother story. But it's going to be it's going to be wildly entertaining. So here's let let me give you kind of some predictions a foreshadowing of what? See coming and we're going to deal with actual predictions here in the next few days. But. One of the things that again, you get from cavenaugh, and you get even from the border wall thing is that politics is nothing more than a game period. And it is it is devolved into a game whose object is to piss the most amount of Americans off at the other side. Now, you saw this with cavenaugh, but you're seeing this with the border wall the government shutdown. What does this become about was this become about? Donald Trump is evil and wants to stop Mexicans from coming in the country. Right. And is now torturing federal employees to get to this evil goal. Right. And what are the Democrats talking about what they want to do with money? With the state five billion dollars. Or you're talking talking about the the Republicans are charging the Democrats are charging that their race the Republicans are racist. And the Republicans are saying look at Nancy Pelosi as on her list of things to do. And she's wanted she wants to shove this through, but she won't touch the border wall. This endless stuff going to Washington. Planned Parenthood abortion money overseas. Those are too hot buttons. The border and abortion. That's all this is this is to piss each side off period. It's not about actually doing anything. I go back to minimum wage. I don't believe in a national minimum wage. It's it's ridiculous. The minimum wage to live in New York. I don't even know what that should be fifty dollars an hour. What should it be the minimum wage in, you know, west in Idaho? Is probably seven bucks an hour. Vastly different. You can't do this. What you can do if you don't if you're if you don't think like a politician is you could say all right. Well, every area has to set their own, and I'm not suggesting this. I'm just saying so you don't ever have to deal with it again, if we're gonna have minimum wages area every area in every state has to set their own, and it is just fixed to the cost of living. So the cost of living goes up the minimum wage goes up. We don't have to have this argument every five years every three years every two years, whatever it is having it on the menu though. Correct. Why they they can fundraise off of it. They can get people angry they can xactly how evil the other side is because they rage increase. Exactly. We want to keep it on the table as an art as a hammer essentially to hit the other side with. So it is it's a political game just to piss you off. And nothing actually happens until the run up of the election and who benefits both parties do. I've seen this before. And it is the Orrin Hatch. Flag burning amendment conversation that we had with him. Years ago in the tea party movement. He said I can get these people to calm down. All I have to do is introduce a flag burning amendment and everybody will fall back in line. And I remembered you remember you're sitting there sitting there going this is insane. He really doesn't get it. As argument was essentially if we introduce a flag burning amendment than we can get people out to the polls they'll care about the flag burning amendment and the Bill Bill come vote for our candidates. It was it was like a using that to get people out to vote for the candidate. It wasn't a real belief in flag burning stuff. It was just a tool to get people to go out and vote, and I think those days are over and I don't think the Democrats or the Republicans. But especially the Democrats have learned that lesson. And what does that mean for the Democratic Party in the next eighteen months will tell you and also what what did we? Learn from Donald Trump this year. That is important to apply in two thousand nineteen. Never more than sixty seconds away from content on the show stand by for more feel the greens a product that is a real SuperFood.."
