How did a former liberal become a conservative activist? Dana Loesch tells her story.

This morning on the radio show, Dana Loesch filled in for Glenn who is away on vacation. Many of you may know her from CNN, Breitbart news, or even her guest spots right here on GBTV, but Dana wasn't always the strong conservative that she is today. In fact, prior to September 11th, Dana was a pretty hardcore liberal.

"I'm a reformed liberal," Dana said this morning while introducing herself to the Glenn Beck radio audience.

She continued, explaining that she had her "come to Jesus moment" on 9/11 as she watched the towers falls on her television. She realized in that moment that the ideology which she had believed in doesn't work in reality - there are repercussions.

Dana, who grew up in a home of southern Democrats in Missouri, had already started her journey towards conservatism prior to 9/11 after being disenfranchised by the left's treatment of Hilary Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Having a background in journalism, she began writing for a couple of daily newspapers, did a few television spots here and there, and right before the 2008 election Dana got involved in radio.

Dana's radio show is where the St. Louis Tea Party was launched.

"Conservatives didn't take the streets and protest," Dana recalled.

She explained thinking, at that time, that no one would show up to their first Tea Party rally, which took place under the arch in St. Louis. It was a cold, bitter day, but people began flooding the city - nearly 2,000 people showed up that day in St. Louis, and even more in cities all across the country.

"It was inspiring," she said. "We felt that the odds were against us. We didn't really think that people were going to show up for this. We asked ourselves, 'are people upset enough to get involved? Are people going to want be involved as much as us?' But they did. And it took one person like me and many other one persons out there all across the country that made this happen."

And now, four years later, we are still seeing the same involvement across our country, Dana noted, looking to what occurred with Chick-fil-a just last week, and the bigger victories that have occurred over the last few years.

"We have come such a long way. We have amassed so many victories," Dana started. "You can't depend on mainstream media to report what we have accomplished. If you compare the new conservative movement. If you compare the grassroots movement to what the left has tried to copy from the 60s - the Occupy Movement. It shows that dedication, persistence, compassion, and passion are all going to pay off. We completely secured the Republican majority in the house. Were it not for the Tea Party there would be no Republican majority in the House. We wouldn't have enough in the Senate even to raise a fuss. Were it not for the Tea Party movement we wouldn't have victories like we did over the establishment in Indiana, we wouldn't have people like Chris Christie in New Jersey, we wouldn't have Marco Rubio in Florida, and we definitely wouldn't have Ted Cruz in Texas. This is a grass roots uprising and we have really racked up a lot of victories. And it's been because of people like you. Because of people like me. Everyone rolling up their shirt sleeves and saying, 'What can I do? Where can I get involved? I have this particular skill set. How can I use it to amplify the movement and conservatism?' and that's what I'm about."

"I hope when people hear what my background is that they are somehow motivated to get involved themselves."

Dana will also be guest hosting tonight on The Glenn Beck Program LIVE at 5pm ET (or on demand) on GBTV. Start a 14 day FREE trial today!

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
