The New Guard: Rising leaders bring Constitution new life

Optimism has been in short supply lately on the Glenn Beck Radio Program. But in light of Senator Rand Paul’s epic filibuster yesterday, Glenn was cautiously optimistic this morning.

“Let me give you some really good news,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Yesterday we had Rand Paul go in front of the Senate and do Jimmy Stewart. All of a sudden we saw a guy act out Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”

While Senators Lindsey Graham and John McCain were chowing down with the President, Senator Paul and a few of his friends stood in front of the world and proved that, at least for now, the Constitution has a fighting chance.

Glenn likened the state of today’s Republican Party to the state of the Democratic Party 10 years ago, when the leftists and progressives, like Cass Sunstein and Jan Schakowsky, were able to infiltrate the party once and for all.

“The Republicans could have gone down that same road and still might, where they just are, they'll just be adopted into this new progressive kind of Republican Party that's not really new,” Glenn said. But “Rand Paul stood… A new alliance was born last night of honest people that know that it is about individual rights and individual responsibilities. You have a responsibility to stand.”

And perhaps the most gratifying part of yesterday’s events was watching the people we elected take a stand for the freedoms we believe in. “If you wouldn't have had the TEA Party, you wouldn't have had those men stand,” Glenn observed. “Those are the people the TEA Party put in.”

Glenn explained that the TEA Party is not about parties but about individual rights and the Constitution, and yesterday helped to reiterate that the Constitution is more than an old dusty document.

“And last night there was an awakening. Don't let anybody tell you that you haven't made a difference. You made a difference last night. The ones that stood were the ones that the freedom movement brought in, the ones that were heralded and championed by the TEA Party. And libertarians, you were there first,” Glenn said.

Libertarians and TEA Party may disagree on a lot of things, but yesterday they came together for the greater good. “It was a great day yesterday. And it wouldn't have happened if you wouldn't have stood and fought in the last two elections,” he said. “You made a difference. A huge difference.”

“I think the Constitution may have taken a gasp last night and it may not have been its last gasp,” Glenn concluded. “But last night you could see it. The Constitution went... (gasping) because somebody gave it air.”

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
