REPORT: Dept. of Education to monitor chatter, Facebook

So apparently the government now wants principles and teachers to police their students outside of school. Don’t worry, they won’t be showing up at your home – at first – they want to watch your kids on Facebook and Twitter.

Glenn said, “We have a report now from the Department of Education. Officials are, quote, threatening school principals are lawsuits if they fail to monitor and curb students' lunchtime chats. They're worried about bullying. And lunchtime chats need to monitored now. So your children need to listened to by the schools so they can understand what your children are saying to each other. Well, that's good. We will monitor the children, yeah. We will hear what the children are saying. They're threatening principals with lawsuits if they don't monitor that, and they're going a step further.”

“They now have to listen not only to the lunchtime chats but also anytime, not at school time, anytime the children are on Facebook or Twitter. If there is anything harassing or racist or anything else that the school or the school's principal is concerned with and doesn't want to get sued by the federal government, well, the principal needs to call that student in.”

According to the story, Facebook is said to be thrilled to be working with White House officials “to foster government oversight of teens' online activities” as Pat put it.

Facebook won’t work with parents but they’ll work with The White House.

“The DOE has issued new guidelines in a Dear Colleague letter in October. The site sums up that they are saying the federal officials have reinterpreted the civil rights laws that require school principals to curb physical bullying as well as racist and sexist speech that take place within school boundaries. Now it is on or off school grounds,” Glenn read.

“Harassing conduct may take many forms, including verbal acts and name calling, graphic and written statements which may be in the use of cellphones or on the Internet. It does not have to include intent to harm, be directed at a specific target, or involve repeated incidents but creates a hostile environment which can limit a student's ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities and opportunities offered by a school,” he continued.

“That's great. So it could be almost anything the school wants it to. That's awesome,” Pat said.

But that’s not the worst part.

“The DOE is also saying that when the principal reports it, then the bureaucrats will decide whether or not the student, the student and the parents, or the community need to go through some sort of class so the harassment or the sexual harassment or the comments can stop,” Glenn said.

Glenn didn’t like this one bit. “Let me tell you something. You monitor and you have a principal come to my child and say we saw what you wrote on the Internet at 8:52 from your bedroom last night, don't you dare come to my kids. You come to me and I will deal with it. Don't you dare come to my children when they are not in school and tell them jack. Don't you dare come to me and tell me I need some sort of sensitivity training because my kid did something,” he declared.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
