Glenn discusses the future of TheBlaze TV

With the big news hitting that TheBlaze was now going to be carried on traditional cable and satellite providers, starting with DISH Network, Glenn spent the opening moments of the radio show discussing what this means for the audience and his company.

"Today TheBlaze has announced and the New York Times front page of the business section has announced that TheBlaze TV is now officially a television network as well as an Internet television network. Today we are debuting on our first carrier, DISH. In fact, if you are at home in some parts of the country, it has started already," Glenn said.

TheBlaze can now be found on Channel 212 for DISH Network subscribers, as well as on TheBlaze.com/TV.

"Why is it conservatives can only have one choice?  You got Fox News and that's it," he said. " If you like Fox News, that's great.  But that's your only choice if you're a conservative.  We think that there should be more, more of a choice.  And I don't know why that, you know, anybody thinks that they get ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, CNN, and you get Fox.  What do you say WE surround them?"

Ever since Glenn left FOX News and launched TheBlaze TV, fans have wondered why he took the network to the internet rather than create a normal channel.

"We can explain finally today we did not want to go back on television until we could own our own network and not be beholden to anyone," he said.

"We want to be independent.  I am the, I believe, maybe the only person that doesn't owe a dime to anybody that has now their own cable channel."

Stu added, "Most people, most of these networks, they get on TV, they try to get some audience on TV and then they try to get a few extra eyeballs on the Internet and, you know, they ‑‑ it's a secondary thing.  For us it was the reverse.  We were able to build the entire foundation with the subscribers, well, and it's you guys.  We were able to build it that way.  So we have that foundation and there's no need to be beholden to anyone else because the foundation is the viewers."

Glenn then spent a few minutes diving into the future of the network, as well as the principles that are guiding it.

"We want you to know that TheBlaze and the network itself is entirely different, and we will be in Cincinnati to unveil the next step on this Saturday and that one revolves around an action center," he revealed. "I told you from the beginning we're not going to be a place where you watch the news and you get pissed off about it.  You don't watch the news and we're going to give you things that you can do about it.  This is not going to be some place to where you just don't have context and you don't have perspective and you don't have anything to do about it.  That's the difference."

"What's changing the world is the Tea Party.  What's changing the world is the 9/12 project.  What's changing the world are people online right now that are connecting with each other, Facebook, Twitter.  That's what's changing the world.  And we're not going to be somebody in an ivory tower that is pontificating.  We are going to do our best to link with as many people as we can that think like us, that understand the world is being redesigned.  And we're going to redesign it with you, not with some giant global corporation that doesn't give a flying crap about you or the country.  We have certain beliefs and standards, and our standards are, our beliefs are that America is good.  It is a force for good.  Our belief is in truth, not a party.  But a principle."

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.
