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.”

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
