Activate: How to turn the 2012 election from a close call to a mandate

 

Last night, Glenn focused on the importance of commitment. He was the first to admit, a lot of last night's show was something you had heard before - but it's important to start at the beginning and to make sure you know what you believe before you get put into action. And tonight, Glenn revealed ways for you to really get moving!

Tonight, the focus of the show was "Activate" - and it was all about the election and how you can make sure that one way or another - 2012 is a year for a mandate for or against the progressives. And if you think it doesn't matter just take a look at what is happening right now in Wisconsin. Progressives and unions are doing everything they can to make sure that Walker loses. It's a microcosm to what is happening around the country, and Glenn thought it was so important that he recapped it on tonight's show (in under three minutes!):

But why does it matter what is happening in Wisconsin? Because these elections are close, way closer than they should be when you consider the fact that Wisconsin has improved drastically under Scott Walker's leadership. They have lower unemployment than the national average; they've gone up in business and hiring rankings; Wisconsin is even on track for a surplus.

Nevertheless, the elections are still close. Why?

Because people are awake - but they are not activated.

Glenn revealed that there are huge percentages of people who donate to campaigns but aren't registered to vote, or are members of active constitutional and conservative groups that are not registered to vote. And even worse - Glenn said that 14% of people who think they are registered to vote are not actually signed up!

Which brings him to steps 1 and 2 of Activate - 1) Make sure you are registered to vote and help a friend figure out if they are registered to vote. 2) Register four people (or schlubs as Glenn called them) to vote.

"We cannot repeat the hanging chads. Remember that? People were staring at ballots and trying to figure out what the inent of the voter was. And you had dolts coming forward saying the meant to vote for gore but accidentally voted for Bush," Glenn said. "We're even more fractured now than we were after the 2000 election. We can't afford a repeat. If Wisconsin is close -- the DOJ says they'll step in and oversee it. Well, I feel so much better."

"Today we give you a tactile way to be involved that can flip these close numbers into a mandate. It can be done and you are the key. You just have to be commited and activated."

"It's absolutely critical that you get everyone in your circle of influence, who are of like mind, to register and vote. Adopt a schlub. And even if they are registered, remember to make sure they are going to vote. Did you know that of all the registered voters who fail to get out to the polls, the #1 reason why they don't is because they are 'too busy' to go? What could be more important than taking 15 minutes out of your day to go and vote?" Glenn asked.

Glenn then moved onto the third thing you can do to activate - be a part of the global freedom movement that starts at Restoring Love by attending FreePac or the Constitutional Conference. There are people acorss the globe begging Americans for help - you need to get educated and you need to be a part of the solution.

Finally, Glenn encouraged you to join a team of like-minded individuals like the 9/12 ProjectFreedomWorks, or a local Tea Party. They have already made huge strides in elections across the country and can help you in your quest to activate other.

"The election is five months away so this season's races are just heating up. It's not only about the presidential election, your vote counts in all races on a national, state and local level," he said.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
