Senators now concerned about gov’t spying… because they found out they’re being spied on

Correction: This article and the Glenn Beck newsletter incorrectly listed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (R-CA) rather than (D-CA). Thank you to the readers and commenters who called attention to the mistake. To the citizens of California who felt a small glimmer of hope until they realize we made a boneheaded oversight...we hear Texas is pretty nice.

Last week, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the CIA improperly searched a computer network established for Congress during its investigation into potential CIA abuse during a Bush-era detention and interrogation program.

Sen. Feinstein said she has “grave concerns that the CIA’s search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the U.S. Constitution,” as she publicly aired an increasingly explosive dispute between Congress and the spy agency.

Furthermore, it looks like White House may have withheld about 9,400 documents (without invoking executive privilege) the from Senate investigators probing the interrogation tactics of terror suspects. This puts President Obama in the middle of the clash between the CIA and Senate Intelligence Committee.

On radio this morning, Glenn found himself aligning with strange bedfellows as he encouraged the audience to support Sen. Feinstein’s fight even if she is a “liberal lion”

“It is time to find yourself with strange bedfellows,” Glenn said. “This will just go away unless you call Feinstein's office and tell her, ‘We support you’; unless you start tweeting, ‘We support you.’ We're Americans. We're not Republicans, Democrats, or independents. We're Americans.”

It is easy to look at this situation and say, ‘Congress doesn’t care that the government is spying on the American people. Why should I care that Congress is being spied on?’ But Glenn warned against such an attitude. At the end of the day, this is a moment in which the Constitution is actually being held sacred and that behavior must be applauded.

“Don't waste your breath on, ‘I can't support those hypocrites. They didn't care when I was spied on.’ Yes, I know that. But at least this is a start at holding the Constitution sacred,” Glenn explained. “And may I just say, if they will spy on the Senate, if the intelligence community will spy on the people who are the bosses of the intelligence community, are you telling me they won't spy on you or your organization – whether that's PETA, whether it’s the ACLU or the ACLJ, whether it’s the TEA Party or Code Pink?”

Ultimately, Glenn believes we have reached a time where there is no excuse for inaction. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to fight for the Constitution and the values this country was founded on.

“We all have a decision to make. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. Not to stand is to stand… Each of us are going to be held responsible for what we do because this freedom does not belong to us. It belongs to our children and our children's children… And now is the time to reach out to people who you might have disagreed with,” Glenn concluded. “Don't slap Dianne across the face and say, ‘See, I told you’… Forget about that. What do you say we reach across and say: We may disagree on everything else, but on this topic we agree. How can we help you, Senator? How can we help you get to the bottom of it and how can we get you to stop it because somebody has got to stand for at least the balance of power, at least the checks and balances system.”

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
