Romney Wins in Michigan

Despite the mainstream media’s claim that Romney won BIG in Michigan, he didn’t. Many would actually consider this a big statement from Santorum. Michigan is Mitt Romney’s home state—a state where his dad was the governor—and he won by a really small margin. Compare Romney’s win in Michigan with Rick Santorum’s thirty point lead in Pennsylvania, or Romney’s other victory last night in Arizona.

While Glenn is still trying to figure out what happened in the Arizona election, Pat (a Mormon) jokingly blamed the Mormons.

“There’s a large Mormon population there,” Pat said “In Utah Romney will win there big. Arizona, obviously, Nevada…” he continued.

“Listen to me,” Glenn said to the radio audience, “This should go for the Catholics as well. Don’t vote for the guy who holds the card for your church.”

Glenn went on to say don’t even vote for someone just because they are a Republican or a Democrat—principals not party affiliation. Stu added that even if religion did play a role in the way people were voting it couldn’t play a big enough roll to sway the vote one way or the other. “Fourteen percent of the vote in the primary was Mormon. Even if 100% voted, Romney still would have won by 6,” Stu said.

While Glenn does believe that Romney will most likely end up being the GOP presidential nominee, and last night’s wins were a big boost for Romney, he thinks the mainstream media has completely spun the narrative (as usual) of the Michigan win.

“You know what kills me,” Glenn said, “isn’t the media playing this as Santorum is out? Aren’t they saying that? What should be said about Michigan—now a blowout in Arizona. But, in Michigan they’re actually coming to the table saying ‘yeah, he won, and Rick Santorum lost…’ It was his home state, and he almost lost it. Three points? That’s crazy! With all the amount of money, the amount of time that Romney has spent there and it’s his home state. His dad was the governor. There is no way he should have lost that, and he came within three points.”

Glenn added, “If it was anybody else it would be—if it was Barack Obama, they would have said he won. This is a win for Rick Santorum. You know what I mean? And I bet you if he would have won by three points they would have still said, yeah, well , he only won by three points.”

Pat pointed out that in Santorum is up by a significant amount in his home state. “In Pennsylvania he’s up by 30,” he said, “His [Romney’s] home state should have looked like Arizona.”

The problem is, despite coming so close in Michigan, Santorum did lose. In order to become the nominee he needs to gain some momentum.

“What Santorum needs to do is to have upsets,” Stu said. Adding, “Santorum needs to win these close races, and I don’t think he did anything wrong. A lot of the people are blaming a couple of the comments he said for the reason that he lost. I don’t think it’s a horrible disaster. It’s a slight missed opportunity. If you’re a Santorum guy this could have been an opportunity to change the dynamic of the race, and it ended up not happening.”

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.
