The top 20 Benghazi lies

As the Benghazi lies keep unfolding, Glenn felt it important to highlight the most important and revealing falsehoods that have been fed to the American people so far. Sadly there were so many to choose from he could only narrow it down to 20.

Here are the top 20 Benghazi lies…

#1. "Our current best assessment based on the information we have at present is that in fact what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated, response to what had transpired in Cairo." — Susan Rice

The testimony now proves that the administration knew in advance.

#2. "What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests." — President Obama

#3. "But the entire reason that this has become the, you know, political topic it is is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan." — Stephanie Cutter (Obama's campaign spokesperson)

#4. "That is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video, sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world." — President Obama

Important because the President's defense has been 'we corrected it' and called Benghazi an act of terror two days later. This was after that.

#5. "I know there are some who ask, why don't we just ban such a video.  The answer is enshrined in our laws.  Our Constitution protects the right to practice free speech." — President Obama

So it's still the "video" and claiming people are calling for speech to be limited.

#6. "Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior along with the protest that took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet." — Hillary Clinton

…how many times did they try to go down this road?

#7. "We can all condemn this reprehensible video." — Victoria Nuland

That's 3 members of the State Department…1 political operative…and the President.

#8. "Find the video that has been so offensive to Muslims to be disgusting and reprehensible." — Jay Carney

Seriously?

#9. "To address the video circulating on the Internet that has led to these protests." — Hillary Clinton

Wow.

#10. "Was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful video." — Susan Rice

Well, if nothing else, she is persistent.

#11. "And it is in response, not to United States policy, not to obviously the administration, not to the American people.  It is in response to a video." -

Jay Carney

…sigh.

#12. "Now we do not yet have indication that it was preplanned or premeditated." - Jay Carney

Really? Because we actually know that you had information that the attack was premeditated days before the attack took place. One of the people in Benghazi called the State Department with concerns warning of the attack.

Oops.

#13. Reporter: "And CBS has learned that the U.S. mission in Libya reportedly ‑‑ repeatedly asked for better security before last month's attack on the American consulate in Benghazi.  A State Department officer says there were 13 confirmed security threats in the six months before the attack.  Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed three weeks ago."

"Well, we weren't told they wanted more security and we did not know they wanted more security again." — Joe Biden

That's cute, Joe.

#14. "The White House and State Department have made clear that the single adjustment that was made to those talking points by either of those two ‑‑ of these two institutions were changing the word consulate to diplomatic facility because consulate was inaccurate." — Jay Carney

…odds Jay Carney has this job a year from now?

#15. "And make no mistake:  We will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people." — President Obama

Well…the video guy is in prison — no terrorists from this attack yet though.

#16. "You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who is extremely offensive video directed at Mohammed and Islam.  We had nothing to do with the video." — President Obama

The video? Again? Come on guys…

#17. "It's not a matter of blaming, that's just the facts.  Sometimes intelligence has to catch up with the reality on the ground.  This was one of those cases." — David Axelrod

Doesn't the intelligence normally come from information on the ground? Throwing the CIA under the bus is never the smart choice, David.

#18. "First I pretty the faux outrage from the RNC and the Republican Party." — Stephanie Cutter

Somehow this is one of the masterminds behind Obama's re-election.

#19. "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some Americans?" — Hillary Clinton

Something tells us it's starting to make a difference to Hillary (and her 2016 presidential hopes).

#20. "Let's be clear: These protests were in reaction to a video that had spread to the region." - Jay Carney

Seriously, what do we think — a week? a month? How much longer does Carney have as Press Secretary?

So what's the truth? Glenn gives a full rundown of where we stand and what we know about the Benghazi attacks HERE.

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.
