Glenn explains why we are the ‘board of directors’ that ‘can change the path’ of the GOP

On last night’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn revealed a story that was over a year in the making. Just weeks before the 2012 election, Glenn announced on his radio program that he had learned of “the biggest news story is going on,” but he chose not to divulge the information in order to maintain peace ahead of the election.

So what was the story?

Around this time last year, the establishment GOP tried desperately to take the wind out of the sails of the conservative and libertarian movement, by going after FreedomWorks in what Glenn referred to as a “hostile takeover.” Last August, Glenn received a phone call from Matt Kibbe right after he had been forcibly removed from his office by armed guards. GOP operatives had influence within the FreedomWorks ranks and, once Kibbe had returned to FreedomWorks, it took several months to rid the organization of their power.

Glenn explains how the situation unfolded in the clip below:

On radio this morning, Glenn elaborated on why now was the time to tell this story. When you look at the in-fighting and corruption within the GOP between the establishment Republicans and the more conservative members of the party, a situation very similar to what happened at FreedomWorks last year begins to unfold.

“Now, I didn't say anything about it during the election because it took about a week to get [Kibbe] back in [FreedomWorks], maybe just a couple of days… And I didn't say anything because, quite honestly, I looked at my wife when I first heard it, and I said, ‘We're done.’ If they can do this, these guys can do anything. And it just took the wind out of my sails for about two weeks,” Glenn said. “And I didn't want to tell you because I didn't want you to be hammered because it was being fixed. But I told you on the air, there is something happening behind the scenes that I think is the most important political story to happen in the year. And it's happening right now and nobody knows about it. And someday I will tell you about it. That's what I said on the air, and I said it several times.”

In the lead up to the 2012 election, Glenn didn’t feel releasing the story served any purpose. Other outlets reported various versions of the story, but it didn’t gain much traction. Today, however, in the midst of stories about Republicans turning on one another and calling each other names, the incident takes on a whole new meaning.

“But I never said anything about it [then] because it didn't serve a purpose at that point,” Glenn said. “It does now because what is happening in the GOP, in the Senate to Ted Cruz and to Mike Lee, and in the House of Representatives to all of those who are standing up for the Constitution, and [it is] being done by people like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, John Cornyn, John Boehner, all of those guys. What's being done right now is what they tried to do to FreedomWorks.”

FreedomWorks was able to reclaim its identity and get itself back on track. Its board of directors elected to reinstate Matt Kibbe as CEO, and slowly but surely the non-conservative/libertarian elements of the group began to leave. The American people find themselves in a very similar situation. We are the board of directors, and it is our turn to make a decision about the future of the Republican Party.

“And you are the board of directors. You are the ones that can change the path. So, when I said to you last week, ‘Defund the GOP.’ This is why I said it. You are the board of directors. The board of directors opened their eyes to all of this, because they [knew], ‘We got nothing,’” Glenn said. “That's why I am coming to you, the board of directors, and saying, ‘Is the [GOP] ranchers in your cattle?’ Because that's the way they look at you. They don't want the choices coming from you. They want to give you the choices. They say, ‘This guy or this guy.’ And you say, ‘The lesser of two evils. I guess I'll take that guy.’ That's the way they want it. They don't like it that you picked somebody from the ranks that they don't have control over. And this is the end game. Just like it was with FreedomWorks.”

“If FreedomWorks would have lost that, it would have meant that we would have been destroyed. All of the work they had done, all of the work and a lot of the credibility that the Tea Party had and everything else would have all been destroyed, would have all been gone,” he continued. “Because it would have been then a GOP operative and we would have had to start all over again. And we would have lost years. Years. And I'm telling you, the same thing is happening now. But if the board of directors, you, stand up, and you know what's the going on, and you know who the bad guys are. And you know who they are. But they are trying to convince you that you have no power.”

The John Cornyns, the Lindsey Grahams, the Mitch McConnells, the John Boehners, have all worked years and years and years to gain their status and power and they are not about to go down without a fight. But many of them are up for re-election this year, and it is your turn to decide.

“They want you to feel like you are powerless. You can't do it. You will never make it. And if they win, it means that it will be just a GOP that goes against all of the Constitution. And we will lose years, if not lose the fight. This fight in Washington is not about the President. It is not even about the debt. It is about the Constitution,” Glenn said. “It's not even about fairness. It's about an equal shot. It's about everybody being free to be able to do and follow the desires of their heart… It's not about debt. It's about bottom up control. We the people, equal justice, and equal chance because all men are created equal. We just want the chance to be who we believe we can be.”

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.

DECODING the Democrats' EXTENSIVE ties to 'Big Tech'

The Democrats' ties to "Big Tech" and the entertainment industry have placed them in the perfect position to influence both public policy and our nation's culture. It's impossible to unweave the entire web of Democrat operatives and sleeper cells, but here are a few of the current ties between the Dems and an industry that arguably has more influence on our day-to-day lives than any other.
