Get organized: Ohio, Virginia critical

Some new polls came out today - Gallup is back up to a 5 point lead for Romney but they are still an outlier poll. Most polls have Romney up 50-47 fairly consistently. But how is he doing in the swing states? One new poll today showed Romney pulling even with Obama 48-48 in Wisconsin.What can you do and where can you do it in order to help push Romney over the finish line first?

"So last night it's about 11:00 and just got yelled at by my wife and she, you know, she's yelling at me about this interview that we did with this ‑‑ the father of slain Navy SEAL in Benghazi and I didn't respond quickly enough that the president and the vice president were dishonorable when I was asked, and I hesitated and she's like, the answer is yes! Dishonor!" I'm like, yes, dear. Yes, dear. So that, right after that I was thinking, I should leave the state. And I was thinking, "We should go to Ohio." Because as I'm looking at everything, this really is going to come down to Virginia and Ohio. And I can't figure the people in Ohio out. I can't. I don't know what ‑‑ but just like when you're watching the debate the other night, I'm in Texas and so I'm watching this from Texas and I'm thinking, "What are you doing?" Well action I'm surrounded by Texans. All of the Texans. We all had our guns out shooting at ‑‑ getting ready to shoot them in the air, you know? That debate wasn't made for us. That was made for, what, a couple of counties probably in Ohio. That's who they're talking to. Well, I'd like to talk to those people in Ohio. I'd like to know what's really going on, on the ground in Ohio," Glenn said.

"We went to Free PAC and I spoke there and there were 8,000 people and it was on fire. And people were working all day, they were going out door to door. So I wrote to Matt Kibbe yesterday and I said, what are you guys doing in Ohio? Can we come and cover any of this stuff in Ohio and maybe we'll do, you know, a rally or whatever, but I'd like to talk to the people in Ohio and I'd like to cover the people who are going door to door. I'd like to cover the 9/12 project. I'd like to cover the TEA Parties. I'd like to cover the people who are actually out on the streets and going door to door. I'd like to ‑‑ I'd like to find the people who are doing it and hold them up. And also encourage them, kind of being there ‑‑ I'd like to be there with a little cup of water as they run by to the next door just, 'Grab the water. Go.' Because it is going to come down to Ohio."

"Now, I don't know how many people are still out there that think, 'It doesn't make a difference' or 'I'm not sure if I'm going to vote' or, 'I don't know, if the weather's fine.' But this makes a huge difference. This makes a huge difference. And I want to speak directly to libertarians here. Don't make the mistake that people made in France after the turn of the century or the last century, you know, the century before, two centuries ago ‑‑ okay, the French Revolution. Don't make that mistake that Thomas Paine made. Revolutions or collapse is not a good thing."

"Now, I don't agree, as you know, I don't agree with everything Mitt Romney says, but I do know this: The guy prays on his knees and the guy is humble just like Abraham Lincoln. If you read the stuff on Abraham Lincoln, you read his first inaugural address, he ‑‑ I don't agree with everything Abraham Lincoln was saying in retrospect. He was like, 'You know, we can't really take this on, you know, but we have to keep the union together' and blah, blah‑blah. But he wasn't making it about slavery, even though he was trying to solve slavery. He believed in that. He just didn't believe in it this way and that wasn't his main priority. His main priority was to save the union. It wasn't until he fell to his knees and said, 'What do you want? What is it you want? You want me to ‑‑ you want me to free the slaves? Fine, I'll free the slaves. I'll make that the number one priority. Help us.' That's when everything changed. But you have to be humble and on your knees.

"And may I ask you, do you believe Barack Obama is either of those things? There is a huge difference. One is offering you free stuff and an easy life and free money and free Obama phones and free everything. The other is saying, 'Look, this is going to be tough, but it's worth it. We can do it. We can create jobs.' He didn't say 'Let's destroy the car industry. He didn't say that.' What he said was let's do this the right way. Let's have them go through a structured bankruptcy. Let's have them go through their books and see where they need to shed so they can restart and survive." You had Barack Obama give GM a short‑term fix. Long‑term GM does not survive unless it ‑‑ because it's going to go bankrupt again. And it will not survive. It can't be ‑‑ it has to go through the reset process so it can restart. We're going to go through some pain. Which do you want it? Do you want honor and integrity and merit? Do you want something that's lasting and real, or do you want a short‑term fix? There's a lot of Americans that want a short‑term fix. It is ‑‑ we have waited too long. All of us. All of us. Ronald Reagan talked about it, JFK talked about it, FDR talked about it. He said at some point, FDR said he thought it was going to be in the 1980s and he said it would be irresponsible, but they did it anyway. But he said, we're going to have to pay for these sins probably by the 1980s. It will collapse."

Well, we knew this. Our whole life I've heard, you know, 'This is not going to last. It's going to collapse. It's going to collapse. It's not going to last. You can't keep doing this stuff. And you're going to have to pay for it.' So we've known. Well, now is the time to pay for it, and every single day that goes by, it gets worse. And it's going to get harder. And we are going to end up like Greece if we go down the same path as Greece, which was... a giant federal bureaucracy where everybody was on the dole, there was no real work ethic anymore.

"Do you know in healthcare, do you know that Barack Obama in the healthcare bill has now described a full‑time workweek as how many hours? Thirty. Since when is it thirty‑hour workweek, France? When did that happen? That is now the official workweek according to the Barack Obama healthcare program. Thirty‑hour full‑time workweek. It's forty. This is the kind of stuff they did in Greece, and we'll end up like Greece."

"So I just want to ‑‑ I want to find out what ‑‑ who are these people in Ohio. I need to understand you. Because Ohio, we've always ‑‑ I've always understood you. You're good, decent, hard working people. What ‑‑ what kind of black spell has been cast on Ohio? I don't understand it. I really don't. And I want to understand it. I'd like to next week suggest ‑‑ and believe me when I wrote, you should see the e‑mail chain now that's going through the company. 'Oh, dear God. What?' But last night about 11:00 I wrote to the staff and I said, 'I'd like to be in Toledo, I'd like to be in Columbus and Cleveland and maybe Fort Wayne, Indiana and maybe Virginia next week. And I'd like to do the radio and television show and then maybe, you know, maybe something, some sort of a rally or something at night. But I want to meet the people who are actually out doing the work, and I want to understand what do you think is at stake and I want to understand what has happened in Ohio and then I want to ‑‑ I want to hand you that glass of water on your way."

Stu, however, wasn't as optimistic that Glenn would be in Ohio considering he just spent a lot of money on a special set for election night, not to mention the lack of notice for doing radio and television in a different state.

"So you want to put together something in Ohio with all of this notice of zero workdays?" he asked Glenn.

"Yes. I think it's a great idea," Glenn said.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
