Rapper Ice-T narrates new pro-gun documentary

On radio this morning, Glenn played a clip from a new pro-gun documentary, Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire, that seeks to change the public perception of gun ownership. It couldn’t come at a better time considering Glenn went on to share a few other stories that demonstrate the sorry state of America. One town has gone so far as to implement a gun-buyback program – for toy guns.

“We have the exclusive details on a movie called Assaulted that looks really good. And it is a documentary that is coming out and could change the minds and the hearts of a lot of people on gun control and what this really means to you,” Glenn explained.

TheBlaze obtained an exclusive clip from the documentary, which is narrated by rapper Ice-T and comes out June 20, in addition to an interview with the film’s director, Kris Koenig. In the clip, 67-year-old New Orleans resident Patricia Konie has her pocket pistol forcibly seized by the police in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Watch the clip below:

Despite the fact that Konie notified the officers at her door that she had a sufficient amount of food and water and did not want to leave her home, the police forcibly entered and seized her gun.

“They push her up against the wall,” Glenn explained.

“They smash her into like a sideboard sort of thing that's holding a bunch of dishes to grab her gun. She's got this unloaded little gun that she's showing them and so they jump all over her, knock her into the wall. They break her shoulder in I think three places. They knock out a tooth. She's all roughed up,” Pat continued. “I mean, she's like 80-years-old and they wrestle her down and take the gun from her. Just an unbelievable situation.”

In other truly mind-boggling news, a California elementary school, Strobridge Elementary, has decided to hold a toy gun exchange next Saturday, where the students of the Hayward, California school turn in a gun and receive a book and a raffle ticket to win one of four bicycles.

So basically it's a gun exchange program… for toy guns!

“Enough is enough. Really enough is enough,” Glenn said. “And you have to start demanding an end to this nonsense.”

Finally, TheBlaze reported on a story out of New Jersey that will now involve individuals involved in car crashed to turn over their license, registration… and cell phone.

According to the New Jersey Star-Ledger, this new law would assist in accident investigations – allowing police to see if a hand-held phone was a contributing factor. It is already illegal to use a hand-held phone while operating a vehicle in the state.

“License, registration and cellphone. No warrant,” Glenn said. “I know there will be people saying, ‘Well, yeah, but if they were on the cellphone…’ Provide a warrant. Provide a warrant.”

Similar to what Mayor Michael Bloomberg has done in New York City, small and seemingly harmless nudges like handing over your cell phone don’t appear to be a problem until we wake up one day and realize we have slowly given up many of our rights and freedom.

“Look, this is why I've been saying for a while: You are the new leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. This is a Civil Rights Movement. And the sooner you wrap your arms around that, the easier it will become,” Glenn concluded. “None of us want to see ourselves as that, none of us know how to do it, and nobody wants to put ourselves in a position to where we're civil rights leaders? What? Because we know what that means and we know, we know the giants that have gone before. But they weren't giants when they sat their course. Neither are we. But if we do it right, maybe someday at least our children can be proud of us.”

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.
