Damning new House report could bring contempt charges for former IRS official Lois Lerner

On Tuesday, House Republicans released a scathing 144-page investigative report detailing former IRS official Lois Lerner’s involvement in the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. The latest developments could lead to contempt charges.

The report states Lerner “created unprecedented roadblocks for Tea Party organizations” and “worked surreptitiously to advance new Obama Administration regulations that curtail the activities of existing 501(c)(4) organizations.” It also expounds upon the coverup that occurred after Lerner and other top officials engaged in after learning of the targeting:

“Most damning of all, even when she found that the actions of subordinates had not adhered to a standard that could be defended as not ‘per se political,’ instead of immediately reporting this conduct to victims and appropriate authorities, Lerner engaged in efforts to cover it up," the report reads.

Contained in the report are dozens of emails between Lerner and her former colleagues that raise serious question about her knowledge of the targeting. For example, several emails show that Lerner received confidential taxpayer information on a non-agency computer system. It appears that she also used her personal email account for many of these exchanges.

On radio this morning, TheBlaze Radio Network's Doc Thompson and Skip LaCombe filled in for Glenn and further discussed the finer points of the report.

"You put these pieces of the puzzle together, I believe you can only come up with one conclusion," Doc said. "And that conclusion is the smoking gun that says, yes, they were targeting conservatives and they were doing it for political purposes."

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
