WATCH: Glenn opens the radio show with remembrance of 9/11

On radio this morning, Glenn opened the show with the bone chilling audio of the 9/11 attacks that has become an annual tradition on the anniversary of the attacks on American soil. It’s hard to hear – but it’s necessary to help us remain vigilant and keep the promises we made to each other in the days after the attacks.

"I got dressed this morning and I thought, I'm a completely different man than I was in 2001," Glenn said through tears as the audio came to a close.

"I was lucky enough to have found God in '99. So my journey was a little easier."

"Every year when I hear 'It's Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and my name is Glenn Beck,' I remember saying those words, trying to be strong, project confidence, give people a sense that we were going to be okay. But I was freaking out just as much as the next guy."

"Somebody called me on the air that day and said, 'Who did this? What's happening?' I didn't have a single answer. But I promised that listener the same thing I promised God that night: I'll do my best. I'll find out what's going on and I'll alert. I won't go back to sleep. I'll be up to the task. I will finish the job. I will teach my children."

"I'm a different man. I'm sure you feel the same way, but there are many days that I think, 'It's too hard. I'm tired of being a pariah.' I held the hand of my son in Anchorage, Alaska. We had been talking about fishing and coming up bear hunting. It was a good boys weekend this last weekend. This lady accosted me in the street, started yelling at me, 'We don't want you in our town. Get out of our town. We don't want you here. You're a hater.'"

"I told you yesterday that I just turned to her and I said, 'I love you.' Boy, I didn't want to say that. But that's what came out, and it didn't ‑‑ believe me, I didn't think of it. I just kept repeating it, as she was screaming on the streets at me. I finally turned around and walked away."

"As I told you yesterday, my son had been whisked away by somebody. He doesn't really understand why we have security 24 hours a day. He's just starting to learn. He said, 'Why did that lady say those things, Dad?' Each of my children have asked that question, and I answer it each time the first time for each of them the same way: 'Your dad says things that he believes that a lot of people don't like and even more people don't want to hear, but I say them because I believe them to be true and that's the most important thing that we can do.'"

"It's our responsibility. It's our responsibility to our country, our God, our children and our neighbors. It's why it's written as our first right that the government can never take away. It's the most important thing. To be able to follow the dictates of your spirit, to worship the god of your understanding, and speak and stand with everything in you."

"I don't know what I did most of my life before September 11th, but I can tell you I'm amazed at what I have done since September 11th. I want you to take an inventory of what you've accomplished in the last eleven years and if it's not a huge, long list of how you've changed for the better, then maybe you should go back and evaluate, did you keep your promise that we all made that night, that we all made. Because we're all tired. But the good news is what I said on September 11th, 'Nothing will destroy us except for ourselves' remains true today. How are we doing on that front?"

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.
