The future of the conservative movement

Tuesday night on The Glenn Beck Program, guest host Dana Loesch opened the show with this:

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."

A quote from Ronald Reagan's first inaugural address as governor that serves as an important reminder that freedom, liberty, and the understanding of tyranny is not genetic. Freedom and liberty have been taken for granted for a long time in this country, and the result has been a generation of apathetic 20-somethings that don't know what tyranny looks like.

Or so media would have you believe.

Dana was joined by a studio audience of people that the media would have you believe don't exist, young conservative activists, "the future of the conservative movement."

America is at a crossroads and young conservatives know what's at stake for them - the choice is clear. America as the founders envisioned it, with a small, limited government, or what you see at Occupy. A group of young Americans revolting because Uncle Sam didn't give them enough. A new class of citizens who don't understand that if you rob from the rich to give to the poor, no one is better off for it.

"One choices gives your freedom of government intervention in your speech, your religion, your assembly, your press. One grants you due process and doesn't impede petition for redress of your grievances," Dana said.

The other choice, she continued, looks more like Rahm Emanuel and other authority figures in our country who use intimidation to shutter businesses and shut down the freedom of thought and speech of anyone with an opposing viewpoint.

"A choice that removes your 4th Amendment right upon travel. A choice that demolishes the 10th Amendment's soft sovereignty of individual states. A choice that makes you financial responsible for your neighbor while denying you the decisions that effect your cost."

For years we've been told that the Democrat Party is the "party of the youth," and lately they've been trying to keep their boot on the neck of the youth by offering them cradle to grave care - "the ultimate nanny experience."

It has become socially acceptable for a 26-years-old to be on their parent's health insurance and still living at home with mom and dad - a description that used to be the description of a loser. Because of the growing nanny state, the nation's debt is growing out of control.

"Every child born is now born into servitude with a personal share of around $50,000 worth of national debt."

Despite this, every child in America is being told that they have to go to college to be successful. But not just any college, society is teaching young Americans that trade and tech schools just aren't good enough.

"So we go into debt to pay for an education that can't be used after graduation because no one is hiring. Why is no one hiring? Business can't plan ahead because Congress fights over whether or not they're going to increase taxes on job creators."

Dana went on to explain that the youth-loving Democrats pushed to artificially lower the interest rates of student loans for 1 year, something that would have to be subsidized by a decade of higher taxes on businesses that file as S-Corps. Sounds great, right? Except, when these students graduate they can't find jobs. Why? Businesses lack the capital to hire them - like the majority of businesses that file as S-Corps.

The Democrats have a different motive than the average young adult who is going to college, looking five years into the future at what they hope do with their education. No, the Democrats aren't worried about the future of these students looking at six-figures of debt. They're worried about how to hold onto their power and win the next election, so they're using the concept of "free education" as a sales campaign for the youth vote.

"This was the lens the Democrats attempted to reach the youth, with their faceless, composite freak, Julia," Dana said. "Julia is the Democrats dream woman - faceless creation with no mouth and no voice...Her entire existence was provided for by the government," Dana explained. "There is no freedom in that."

"Our generation, we crave freedom," she continued. "I've said it before, we are the true counter-culture. We are like salmon swimming upstream. We recognize the danger in seeding liberty for convenience. The hand that feeds you is the hand that holds you down. And instead of dedicating on cop cars in the street, we're taking the fight right to congresses doorstep. This is one of the reasons the media has tried so hard to pain the Tea Party and grass roots as old and out-of-touch. Their entire narrative is destroyed the moment the recognize how youth lead it truly is. We are living proof that liberty sells."

"We don't want to be the generation that loses that freedom, so we're giving it all we've got."

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.
