Meet the 15-year-old working hard to make an impact in elections across the country

Voters in Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Oregon, and Pennsylvania head to the polls today, and Glenn is particularly interested in the Kentucky Republican primary Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Matt Bevin. On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to a remarkable 15-year-old Rhode Island student, Holly Fraser, who has been working tirelessly through her organization, Youth for Bevin, to raise awareness for Bevin’s campaign.

To begin, Glenn asked Holly the obvious question: What brought her from her home in Rhode Island to Kentucky?

Holly explained that she is a homeschool student has been involved in various political groups including Generation Joshua, which seeks to “raise up the next generation of Christian leaders and citizens, equipped to positively influence the political processes of today and tomorrow.” During her time with the organization, Holly campaigned for Ken Cuccinelli’s 2013 gubernatorial run in Virginia, and she was “so disappointed” when he lost.

Following Cuccinelli’s defeat, Holly began looking at other conservative candidates she could support.

“So after that was over, I was looking up other candidates that were going to be running this year because… I don't want this to happen to any other conservative candidates. I had to do something,” Holly said. “So I found Matt Bevin, and he just stood out to me. So the more I learned about him, the more I liked him. Once I began to listen to him, I knew he's one-of-a-kind candidate, and I wanted to do everything I could to help him win.”

That led Holly to found Youth for Bevin, “a national conservative student led grassroots movement for young Americans who stand with Matt Bevin.” According to the group’s website, they “believe young people have a duty to take action and shape the political culture of our nation.”

Holly has mobilized several dozen students from all over the country to make calls and spread the word about Bevin’s campaign. Holly and her mother, Elizabeth, have spent several weeks in Kentucky, and Glenn asked Elizabeth what she believes her daughter is gaining from her experiences on the campaign trail in several races.

“As a mom, what do you think you're teaching Holly by having her do this? Basically we'll back it up. She started this youth for Bevin in November 2013… As a mom, a home schooling mom, that's a wonderful thing to hear. I encouraged her. I said, ‘Go right ahead. We'll incorporate this into your home schooling,’” Elizabeth explained. “This is real life experience. This is changing not just Holly, but all of the students that have come. It's opening their eyes to what it's like to be actively involved, and I don't think a single one of these volunteers would ever become complacent when it comes to what's taking place in our country.”

When you consider everything that is happening with the American education system today, Glenn believes Holly’s story demonstrates the incredible opportunities that can come from homeschooling.

“Look, you may not want your kids going out and campaigning for somebody. You might want your kids to go out campaigning for Barack Obama. Homeschooling allows your kids to find their passion and follow it,” Glenn said. “You know your kids… Washington doesn't know that. Bill Gates doesn't know that… Everything that is being preached to us now as the way we have to do it is enslaving people, is dumbing people down, is putting them in a box, is medically unhealthy for them, spiritually detrimental. You use any label you want. None of it is good.”

“Teach your kids about freedom. Teach your kids to walk with the spirit, to listen to that inner voice, and pursue the things – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he concluded. “Pursuit of happiness kind of makes you think you're never really going to find it. You're never going to arrive there. It is all about the chase and the pursuit. That's what makes us great.”

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.
