Freedom Connector: Get Organized

Glenn’s been talking about the left’s community organizing efforts, and he promised to reveal an alternative solution for the right and the Tea Party on Monday. That solution? Freedom Connector.

“A year ago a group sat in my office and a year ago the tea parties and the Freedom Works and the 9/12 project that they were fighting amongst themselves.  Not all of them.  I don't know if anybody remembers the show I did with the, all the leaders of the Tea Party and I said, is there problems?  Is there a problem?  And we actually, one member or one Tea Party group was disinvited because it was too contentious and they were also backing racists at the time.  And the point of that show was we must put our differences aside and grow up and be adults.  This isn't about power,” Glenn said.

“The problem has been that too many people, they get their own group and then they feel like, no, this is my group and we're going this way, and what I have tried to do with the idea of the 9/12 project was values and principles.  Let those be your guide, and we can argue about things.  For instance, Penn Jillette and I have not talked, have not spoken.  I mean, he haven't reached out to him and he hasn't reached out to me.  So it's not like we're not on speaking terms.  But he is a very antireligious guy.  I am a very pro religious guy.  I just don't believe in shoving religion down anybody's throat.  But I believe God is wildly important.  He does not.  I don't know how he feels about, you know, me and everything else.  I know that Penn Jillette and I who disagree vehemently, I have no problem with him.  I have no problem with him because he's not trying to control other people's lives.  He's not trying to go out and tell me that I can't go to church.  And I'm not telling him to go to church.  I'm going to force you, Penn, that's ridiculous.  That is the kind of connection that we need.  Freedom connection.”

“A year ago Freedom Works came into my office and I said, look, we have got to be able to connect and let the people connect.  They don't have to go through one organization or another.  We have to be able to have the 9/12 project and all the different tea parties and all of the different, you know, groups that believe in the Constitution.  And then you have to have a way for people who aren't in any group or don't want to be any group be able to see what everybody is doing.  It's taken them a year.  I had forgotten about it.  They called a meeting with me last week and they came into my office and they sat down and I said ‑‑ I didn't even know what the meeting was about and I said, guys, before you start, I have to ask you, please, please tell me that there is someone that has spent time and money studying Organizing For America, moveon.org, everything that Google is now doing.  Please tell me that somebody is seeing the way they are using the Internet in connection.  And they just smiled at me and they said, you don't remember our conversation a year ago?  And I said, no.  And you said, that's what you said to us a year ago:  Find a way to connect without any middleman.”

“ I'm not loyal to any one person.  I'm loyal to an idea.  And anyone that will connect with me on those ideas, I'm in.  I'm tired of waiting around for leaders, I am tired of people trying to tell us exactly what we're supposed to do, et cetera, et cetera.  The American people will figure it out.  But community organizing is going to change the world.  And last week I said to you, before I found out about the Freedom Connector, if you're not organized, you lose.”

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.
