On radio this morning, Glenn poignantly reflected on the transformation he has experienced and he asked the audience to consider the same.

Tonight at 5 o'clock is the five year anniversary of the 9/12 Project. I invite you to join us. We have asked for people to tell us: How has your life changed. Have you gotten married because of the 9/12 Project? Are there any kids that have come from the 9/12 Project? How are you a different person than you were? And I really want you to ask yourself that question: How have you changed in the last five years?

If you haven't changed, maybe you should look into that. Because I mean, really? All of these things in the world have been going on and you're still the same person? I will tell you that many of the people who voted for Barack Obama would say, ‘I'm the same person.’ The people who are going to lead the world in the next phase, are the ones who have dug down deep right now.

So how have you changed in the last five years? The TEA Party, I know has changed a lot of people and changed a lot of people politically. You've become more active but that wasn't really the main focus of the 9/12 Project. It was happenstance that the TEA Party went to Washington for the very first march on 9/12. That was the date that I issued five years ago next week. Five years ago next week, I said, ‘We're gonna meet again on 9/12. And I'm gonna tell you what I'm doing. And I want to see what you're doing.’

You showed me what you were doing. You went to Washington, D.C. That's what you were doing. I told you then we were going to Washington, D.C. for Restoring Honor because that's what I was doing. I was working on the 40 Days and 40 Nights Challenge. I was working on: Let's be Americans. You went and said, ‘I want my country back. I don't want to slide into socialism.’ You became politically active. You knew who you were. You started teaching your children. And the 9/12 Project was a big part of that.

But also the 9/12 Project was about more than just parties. It was about much more than, at least to me. It was about values and principles. What are those values and principles? Tonight, we are going to go over those again. And I'm going to do something else… At 8 o'clock tonight, I invite you and your family to gather around the TV and watch our first Blaze movie. We have never played a movie on the Blaze before. Tonight we're going to. Tonight, we're going to play an old Frank Capra movie. Frank Capra is the guy who did It's a Wonderful Life. If you liked It's a Wonderful Life you're going to love Meet John Doe.

[…]

This is such an amazing story, and a lost Frank Capra film that you need to see. Maybe you have already seen it. Watch it again. And I want you to watch it with new eyes tonight. I want you to watch this movie and realize where you were five years ago. You were at the beginning of this five years ago.

[…]

I want you to watch it not just as a history lesson, not just as a good movie, but I also really want you to watch the last scene because I'm going on vacation this next week. When I come back, we're gonna tell you about something. You know the phrase ‘let sleeping dogs lie’? They didn't. They didn't let a sleeping dog lie. They kicked the sleeping dog over and over and over again. Beware of dog. The dog is awake. The dog is on guard. And if we have each other, if we really understand the principles behind Meet John Doe, politics go into its rightful place. Politics is only a reflection. Done right, politics is only a reflection of the people.

What does that mean? That's why the 9/12 Project was about values and principles… We knew that somebody had to stand guard and say, this is the truth – for the record. Let history mark for the record this is what happened. We knew that TheBlaze had to exist because nobody was giving you the truth. I've seen the boardrooms from inside. I've seen the news and how it's made from all sides. And I knew there had to be someone.

Please, please watch this movie tonight. You will understand so much of what I have been cryptically saying to you for a long time. You will understand so much. I knew we had to start TheBlaze to tell the truth, but there is another component. It's not just the news. It's not just a political movement. It is cultural.

And so when I come back from vacation, after you have watched this movie tonight, I'm coming back with a new challenge to you. And you will understand in the next 6 months where we're going and what we're doing. Where I'm going, what I'm doing, I will make the same challenge to you. Except it won't be a 6-month challenge. This time it will be in one year. I will show you exactly where I'm going. You will know it. You show me what you've done. We win 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.
