Obama: ‘U.S. persons’ are safe from surveillance

‘Evil will stand if good men do nothing’ Glenn gives rousing speech outside the Capitol

Conservatives were busy in the nation’s capital. Members of Congress and activists were holding two separate gatherings: One to protest the IRS’s targeting of conservatives, and the other to inform the country of the immigration reform bill sneaking it’s way through Congress. Glenn gave a rousing speech at the events — his first at such an event in the Capitol since Restoring Honor. And, in a way only Glenn could, he raised the level of discourse from the IRS to the bigger issue: Civil Rights. Check out photos, videos and Glenn’s full speech HERE.

Glenn remembers his good friend, author Vince Flynn

Obama: ‘U.S. persons’ are safe from surveillance

Yesterday, we told you how President Obama sat down with Charlie Rose and told the world his administration is tremendously ‘transparent’ when it comes to NSA surveillance techniques.

So what exactly is a ‘U.S. person’, Mr. President? Glenn reacts HERE.

A voicemail was allegedly left by a Capitol Hill Police Officer for a Tea Party organizer trying to block its rally-goers from attending a congressional press conference. Is this discrimination or was there a legitimate reason for the call? Get the details HERE.

The new Civil Rights fight: Protecting freedom of religion

Pastor Ken Hutcherson and Rabbi Daniel Lapin joined Glenn on the radio show this morning to talk about the new Civil Rights movement they see developing in America. For Hutcherson, who lived through the Civil Rights fight of the 1960s, the similarities he sees between then and now are staggering. Race may no longer be an issue, but our freedom of religion is under attack. It’s time to stand up! STORY

What is the message that can unite all Americans?

On Tuesday’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn made an argument that he has made many times before: history is repeating itself. In light of the ongoing immigration debate and the countless scandals plaguing the United States, it is easy to be discouraged. Instead of fixing the problems, Glenn explained that we are simply redefining them to make ourselves feel better. But there is hope. Find out the message that can unify America HERE.
