New documentary seeks to tell the truth about the TEA Party

Glenn has been encouraging his audience to stop thinking and start acting when it comes to following through on various passions and projects. TheBlaze Radio Network’s Doc Thompson and Skip LaCombe personify that advice. On radio this morning, Doc and Skip joined Glenn to discuss their newly released documentary Intolerable: The Truth About the TEA Party.

“The reason I wanted to have you on is because you work for me… and I mean this sincerely: You are the quintessential employees. I shouldn't even say that. You're the quintessential partners in TheBlaze. You two have gone from coast to coast on your own dime… You guys found a lot of the candidates that now people are talking about way before anybody else. And you also decided to make this documentary,” Glenn explained. “All the time people come into my office and say, ‘Glenn, if I could just get some resources, I'd be able to do X, Y, Z.’ And we have decided, in my office, we're no longer taking appointments with anybody outside or inside that are saying, ‘I could do X, Y, or Z.’ In today's world, and you guys are proof it, you can do anything.”

Glenn asked Doc and Skip to talk a little bit about the purpose of the documentary.

“You know the misconceptions about the TEA Party that's been pushed out there. I got really frustrated after our tour, and I said, ‘Let's tell the truth about the TEA Party, so people can share it and save their friends and neighbors,’” Doc explained. “[That] is what it really is: It's good, hard working Americans that share your same values… You're going to watch this. You're going to get good information. And you're going leave feeling good. You've going to have some direction for the future.”

Doc and Skip teamed up with a friend of theirs, producer Matt Roman, for the film. They decided to make the documentary available for free via their Intolerable.us web page, but they are accepting donations.

“We offered it for free because we want as many people to see it as possible, but we're also capitalists,” Doc said. “And then from here, some of the donations we get, we're going to put the money toward a whole lot of other projects that we have rolling out. We have about 15 things we're going to do in the next couple of years… We’ve got a bunch of good stories.”

“We have ideas for books coming out – eBooks – and music,” Skip added. “We're following [Glenn’s] model here to try to create things to go after culture.”

While you are not guaranteed success, Glenn encouraged those listening who have an idea to seize the opportunities around them.

“Honestly, it is the people that are just doing it today, the people who see the opportunity, who are not trying to use the old system,” Glenn said. “You don't need systems anymore. You really don't. You seize the opportunity where you're at.”

“Glenn, over the years, I've had a bunch of ideas… and said, ‘I'm going to do this’ and I would hit a roadblock and move onto the next thing. And nothing would get done,” Doc explained. “Through a combination of us going on the tour and hearing the entrepreneurial spirit people had… and then hearing you talk about changing culture, I told Skip, ‘We're just going to go do this… If we don't do this now, we will never do it.’ So we started a company and said, ‘We're going to do all these things, [and] we'll just figure it out somehow.’ And that's kind of the mantra we have now.”

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.
