42 Days left until America decides

America has two very distinct choices this November the 6th on election day. One candidate believes all things flow from government while the other believes limited government intervention is the best way to go. Polar opposites. Which does America prefer? That was the question Glenn encouraged listeners across the country to ask themselves on radio this morning when he told the story of Duncan Hines, an American entrepreneur who managed to leave his mark on America without relying on the government.

"In forty-two days America will decide. Probably the most important thing that the America has decided in maybe a 150 years," Glenn said.

Glenn said that Americans have the choice in November to support a philosophy that holds redistribution as a core tenet. They can vote for a man who believes that government programs and institutions are essential to and indivisible from personal success. Or they can vote for someone who believes in individual success and small government, who thinks that solutions are found at home with families and with faith.

Glenn said that Americans need to remember great individuals who succeeded despite the personal challenges they faced. He recalled the story of Duncan Hines, whose mother died at a young age and whose lawyer father sent him to spend most of his childhood with his grandmother. It was with his grandmother that he learned to appreciate good cooking, and as an adult he travelled the country with his wife compiling lists of good places to eat.

"Well the list that he and (his wife) Florence had put together had become so popular and it was passed around so much, and they became inundated. And that's when they realized that nobody had compiled a list of places to eat in America. In 1936 he wrote a book called the " The Adventures in Good Eating". He wrote about all sorts of places including one in Kentucky a little coffee half a mile from Corbin. You could get fried chicken, potatoes, biscuits, vegetables, a drink. All that for a buck tops," Glenn explained.

That restaurant near Corbin, KY turned out to be the very first Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Hines's review was one factor in Col. Sanders's deciding to franchise the restaurant.

"In 1952 he introduced his own bread to the world. A year later he sold the rights to this bread. He made a fortune. And then he licensed his name to other food products because the country had grown to trust the man with the name that symbolized good food," Glenn continued.

"He was renowned food critic and author. He found a niche in America, a need that wasn't being fulfilled and he filled it. And in doing so, in finding that on his own he built something. He became wealthy through his own hard work and his dedication, and in his ingenuity."

"And we don't know him anymore, we just know Duncan Hines cake mix. In just a few days we're going to decide if Duncan Hines didn't build his cake mix, who did? Was it the government?"

"Soon we decide."

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.
