Watch what happens when Trey Gowdy stands up against witness in IRS scandal that refuses to answer questions

The Democrats brought in an expert witness to weigh in on whether or not a special counsel needs to be appointed to investigate the IRS scandal, but he didn't make it very far once Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) started to question him. Gowdy pushed Professor Charles Tiefer to answer whether or not there was a conflict of interest at the Department of Justice when it came to the IRS scandal, and pretty soon there were fireworks. Why does this matter? Because the IRS is being weaponized, and the Obama administration and the Department of Justice seem to be perfectly fine with it.

Gowdy went after Prof. Tiefer for dodging questions about Obama's statements on the "The O'Reilly Factor", where he said he didn't think there was a "smidgen" of corruption at the IRS before the investigation had begun. Since the DOJ ultimately reports up to President Obama, Gowdy wanted to know if Tiefer thought that represented a clear conflict of interest.

"So you don’t think it matters that the chief law enforcement officer of this country, before there is an investigation, while there are emails missing, before he’s analyzed one scintilla of evidence, prejudges and says there’s not a scintilla of corruption. You don’t think that matters," Gowdy asked.

"You can't prejudge the outcome of an investigation that hasn't even started. You can't do that when you are the chief law enforcement officer of this country," Gowdy added.

"You want us to expect the outcome of this is going to have any validity or credibility?" he asked.

Gowdy also criticized ex-IRS official Lois Lerner's comments calling conservatives "assholes" and "crazies".

Watch:

Why does this matter? Glenn said that the administration is weaponizing the IRS against conservatives, a dangerous move that has happened before and will continue to happen until people stand up for their American values over their personal interests.

"Everybody in America should be cheering for Trey Gowdy," Glenn said. "What does our American value say about using the IRS as a weapon? Our American values say this is wrong. They used it against Martin Luther King. They were using the IRS against Martin Luther King. They were using the Justice Department and the FBI against Martin Luther King, and we all know that's wrong. It's wrong."

"Once that thing is weaponized, you're over. You are over as a nation. And they are weaponizing it. It's happened in the past. And what happened in the past? They stopped it, because people rose up and said this is wrong, and they stopped it, but now people in America, half of the country is not rising up."

Glenn said that right now, there are people in both parties who are likely perfectly fine with the IRS being used as a weapon. The Democrats are fine with it now because they are in power, and Republicans are thinking it will soon be their time and they will get some payback against anyone standing up against the GOP. That is why you don't see the Lindsey Graham's or the Mitch McConnell's of the world leading the charge of this.

"Same with the NSA, because they want that information, because when they have access to it and control of it, they will use it themselves, against me or against you. Doesn't matter. Anyone who stands against their power," Glenn said.

"I did it, I looked the other way. My principles should have told me there's no way you could do the PATRIOT Act. My principles should have told me no, we don't even have the discussion on torture, but what happened? We were Jack Bauer. What happens if we know there's a bomb?" Glenn asked. "No. Our values tell us we don't torture. And when we get to Jack Bauer, what happens?"

"My values should have set off alarm bells," he added. "No secret trials, no secret courts. You go to a judge and you work within the framework of the Constitution, period."

"Anything worth doing is hard, and the reason why we are in so much trouble as a nation is because no one knows what we stand for anymore. We don't even know what we stand for."

"What are our values? There's a few of them, torture is tough. There's a few of them that are easy. The IRS being weaponized, that's simple. Or at least it used to be for America. Stop paying attention to our political interests and start worrying about our values."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.
