"Remember, we're fighting for the future, we're fighting for history," Dana Loesch reminds FreePAC crowd

Did you miss GBTV’s coverage of FreePAC? The full event is available ON DEMAND on GBTV! Join Erick Stakelbeck, Andrew Wilkow, Star Parker, and Kevin Jackson as they cover all the speakers at the event.

Dana Loesch sure knows how to fire up a crowd. The talk radio host and frequent guest on GBTV is no stranger to controversy with the mainstream media - after all, calling out their false narratives and distortions of the truth is a big part of her job over at Breitbart.com. And tonight was no different. Dana delivered a rousing speech to the packed house at American Airlines arena that held the feet of the media to the fire.

Loesch didn't wait long to blast the media and their desire to ignore the truth to fit their own agenda. She blasted ABC's chief "investigative" corespondent Brian Ross for incorrectly connecting the "Dark Knight" shooter to the Tea Party last week.

"What I find absolutely reprehensible, is when we have what is supposed to be the watchdog for the people decide to make another new set of victims in its reporting - its reckless, it's malicious, slanderous reporting. And that's what happened, another set of victims was created after the Aurora shooting," Loesch said to massive crowd.

Ross's "craptastic" reporting, as she described it, wasn't the only one taken down by Mrs. Loesch on stage tonight. Loesch cited several examples where the media attempted to blame the Tea Party for violence. Examples like the shooting last year in Tuscan, AZ where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot, which resulted in the lives of Tea Party leaders being threatened. Other examples she used can be found here.

Dana also made sure to point out the acts of violence you didn't hear about, like the rapes and assaults that took place during Occupy Wall Street and the Occupier who opened fire on the White House.

"Did you hear about that in the media? No you didn't. Because they like the White House, Nancy Pelosi said 'bless them'."

Dana doesn't just know the facts though, she knows how to fight back and win the battle the media has waged against conservatives.

"I'm not a Nazi, I'm not a bigot, I'm not a racist - I'm a mother. I am a patriot, like you. And if the media doesn't want to give us column inches, we're going to take them. If the media doesn't want to report on the fact that here we have 14,000 people in this auditorium, who paid their way to be here to stand up for conservatism, we will. We don't need the mainstream media."

While the networks like ABC, NBC, etc. may have been around a long time, while conservatives may not have invented talk radio, Dana points out that we took it over.

She was met by loud applause as she pointed out, "that's [talk radio] ours now, that's ours. Yeah… we took over talk radio, we took over cable news. One of my favorite things - we took over your 'internets, liberals."

"So you won't report on us - we'll report on what we do. And we'll make you all look like clowns to the point where you have to cover us, because you're losing to us."

Dana, arguably one of the most active conservatives on twitter didn't need the mainstream media to get where she is today. She told the crowd at American Airlines arena that she studied journalism for awhile and saw what went on behind the scenes, which is why she spends so much time exploding the lies in the media.

"Today's headlines are tomorrow's history," she said.

She went on to remind the crowd, like Glenn often does, what we are doing right now is what our children and our grandchildren will be reading in their history books.

"Your grandchildren will grow up and will want to read about how grandma and grandpa fought back against the man to take back their country," she proclaimed. "We are the counterculture movement."

In closing, Dana boldly stated, "the media is supposed to be our watchdog, not Barack Obama's lapdog."

"Remember, we're fighting for the future, we're fighting for history," she continued. "This is our country, our media, we're going to make sure it's accurately reflected in the history books. It's going to take all of us to do it. Get connected. Get on Facebook. Get on Twitter. Get a blog. Read them, comment on them and support them. That's what it's going to take."

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.

5 SHOCKING crimes the border crisis is bringing to YOUR backyard

The crisis on the southern border has reached a boiling point following the controversial Supreme Court ruling that allowed the federal government to remove large portions of border security, triggering a movement of conservative governors defending Texas' right to protect its border.

We commonly hear about the border crisis through mainstream media as if it's an abstract issue that has little to no effect on our daily lives. However, for millions of Americans, the border crisis is in their backyard... literally... bringing crime up to their front doorstep—and it's coming to your doorstep soon.

These five stories paint a glimpse of the type of crime and cartel activity that is being enabled by the Biden administration's border policies.

Assault and robbery in Massachusetts

On January 15th, Lucas Vilaca Moreira Fontenelle was arrested in Milford, Massachusetts for armed robbery of a bodega along with two other illegals a few days earlier. This comes just one month after ICE detained Fontenelle for assault, but the city of Milford cut him free as part of their status as a sanctuary city.

Murder in New Your City

On January 6th, Moises Coronado chased down, beat, and fatally stabbed Dafren Canizalez while in a NYC shelter. Coronado illegally crossed the Texas border in November where he was detained before being released and making his way to New York.

Cartel trafficking in El Paso

Late last month U.S. Border Patrol agents operating in the El Paso region arrested a cartel "foot guide" that was responsible for trafficking dozens of illegal immigrants across the border. The foot guide is a member of the La Linea Cartel, an operation based out of Juarez, Mexico whose gang warfare contributed to the city's 1,000+ homicides in 2023 alone.

Human smuggling in Arizona

Last November, two teenagers were pulled over with five illegal immigrants in their car. The teens are being charged with human trafficking, and there is evidence that this was not their first trip. Authorities believe that these teens are the latest in a dangerous new trend of cartels using social media to pay teens to smuggle migrants across the border.

Cartel trespassing in Arizona

Late last December, an Arizona rancher reported that he has seen a disturbing rise of cartel activity on his land. According to the rancher, he has seen evidence of cartels fighting for control of routes that pass through his property. He has even seen cartel scouts and human smugglers several times.
