Glenn interviews Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach about immigration protest

On radio yesterday, Glenn shared the story of Kansas State Attorney General Kris Kobach who was targeted over the weekend by members of the pro-immigration reform group Sunflower Community Action Network.

Protestors marched on Kobach’s home on Saturday, leaving behind a pile of shoes “of the fathers he’s deported.” Kobach was targeted because he is considered the architect of Arizona’s immigration law.

This morning, Glenn interviewed Kobach about the incident.

“He is a very brave man and leading the way to stand against illegal immigration. Not against immigration. Against illegal immigration,” Glenn said of Kobach. “He is leading the way. Kansas is now the only state, I believe left, where you are forced to produce identification to go vote. This Supreme Court yesterday overturned the Arizona case. It's crazy. It is absolutely crazy.”

Fortunately for Kobach and his family, when the some 700 organized protestors descended on his home on Saturday, he was not home.

“I just really feel blessed we weren't home, because I've got four young daughters, aged 9 and younger, and they would have been absolutely terrified,” Kobach said. “This would have been sort of a scarring event in their lives, seeing people, a mob descend on our house with megaphones and signs.”

Like Glenn began to explain yesterday, Kobach reiterated that the Sunflower Community Action Network is a well-organized and well-funded group that has won grants from progressive foundations for its work for economic and social justice.

“Well, the organizers of the rally - first of all, they spent a lot of money on this, or the mob action, whatever you want to call it. They had four buses, presumably rented or purchased, they brought in a busload of people all the way from Wichita, about three hours from the Kansas City metro area,” he explained. “It's called the Sunflower Community Action Network, an organization that sprung up right as ACORN folded its tent in Kansas and it appears to have the same leadership and structure.”

While the media has largely ignored this story, the limited coverage has so far painted the perpetrators as innocent protestors.

“But I want to share something with your listeners,” Kobach said. “In the left wing media has, in response to this said, ‘Oh, there's nothing to worry about. These are just protesters.’ No, these aren't protesters. These are people who have an audience of one. If they were protesting, wanting to get exposure to the public media, they would be in front of my office building. But no, they went to a quiet suburban neighborhood, stood in front of my house. No one else had to hear them, except for a few neighbors. They were trying to intimidate.”

Just as with any immigration conversation, there is an important and necessary distinction to be made between those that choose to enter the United States legally and those that do so illegally.

“Think about the brazenness of what these members of this mob are doing. The ones who are illegal aliens, they are saying: let's break the law and enter the United States illegally, then let's trespass on this elected official's property and there are a number of other criminal threats that also apply, and then let's demand amnesty,” Kobach said. “So we'll break all kind of state and federal laws, then while standing on the front porch of an elected person's house, we are going to demand through a megaphone that we be given amnesty.”

Kobach made it clear that he will not back down from his position on illegal immigration, and he challenged other elected officials to also be steadfast in their convictions.

“Our whole system depends upon elected officials responding to the needs of their constituents and not being threatened as so often happens in a third world country,” he said. “This gets to the very core of what our American system depends on, and that is we don't have mobs, we don't have this kind of pressure put on decision-makers.”

“I appreciate your bravery, Kris, and I feel for your family and your children. I really do,” Glenn said. “I know what you are going through, and you just do all that you can do. Do all that you can do. It's worth it in the end.”

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.
