“That is flatly untrue.” Sen. Jeff Flake denies reports that he is pro gun control

On yesterday’s radio program, Glenn talked about the interesting policy decisions Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has made since being elected to the Senate. After joining the Gang of Eight to work on comprehensive immigration reform, there was buzz that Sen. Flake was considering giving into gun-control legislation too.

“I want to start the hour with a possible correction or at least benefit of the doubt at this point,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Yesterday we told you that there were words going around that Jeff Flake looked like he was willing to change his vote on Manchin/Toomey because of the Internet sales tax [legislation].We had some pretty good sources on that one, but [Sen. Flake] says that's absolutely not true.”

After the show yesterday, Sen. Flake’s office reached out with a comment to clarify his position on gun-control. “I want to read what his press person said, so give him the benefit of the doubt because Jeff Flake is a friend. I like him,” Glenn said. “I know him, I respect him, I was for him in his election, and I think he has been very, very good as a congressman. He's one that we really hoped would go in and change the tone of the Senate and be able to stand.”

Glenn read the statement he received from Sen. Flake’s press office:

Senator Flake has not changed his position on the Manchin/Toomey amendment. He remains opposed to it after voting against it last month. His position on background checks has not changed. There seems to be some confusion in the blogosphere particularly that Senator Flake would be willing to reverse his vote on Manchin/Toomey in exchange for no Internet sales tax. This is flatly untrue. The substance of this claim involves two separate bills and they in no way relate to one another. Senator Flake is not willing to make any concessions on the Manchin/Toomey amendment. He voted against it and voted instead for the Grassley/Cruz amendment. He wrote a short Facebook post about it last night:

It was reported by some media outlets today that I am changing my vote on Manchin/Toomey and that somehow I'm linking this to a vote on the vote on the Internet sales tax. Neither is true. I am not changing my vote on Manchin/Toomey. I voted against it. I voted against the Internet sales tax as well. There is no connection between these two votes.

“We just reported other reports,” Stu said in regards to the story Glenn reported yesterday.

Sen. Flake came on the radio program a couple weeks ago to talk about the Gang of Eight immigration reform, and Glenn asked him some pretty tough questions and demanded some pretty substantive answers, but Sen. Flake handled it with grace. Today, Glenn offered Sen. Flake an open invitation to come on the radio program and talk about the gun-control issue.

“Here's the thing,” Glenn said. “If we're not tough on these guys when they possibly start to lose their place, when they start to, you know, go towards Lindsey Graham and John McCain, we lose them and then they're there forever and we have to help them keep their souls, quite honestly. And so we'll lovingly reach out to him and lovingly ask him some questions because we don't want to lose him. Because he is a great, great advocate. He has a great history, and we'd like to see that continue.

“We'd like to help those who are good,” Glenn concluded. “We just want to make sure that we're not supporting anybody who has gone astray.”

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.
