Warning: This story contains graphic images

It is important to know what kind of monsters the world is dealing with. We must tell one another the truth. But one can never even find the truth without someone giving you the facts first. One of the most important facts in the news today comes from a photo of a young boy proudly holding severed head, tweeted by terrorist and ISIS member Khaled Sharrouf.

The photo was tweeted out with words "Thats my boy!"

When Glenn first saw this photo, he sent it around in an email to members of his staff with a note explaining why it was so important to keep sharing these images even though they are disturbing.

He wrote:

I believe it is important to know what kind of monsters the world is giving a pass to. Forget the talk of Islamic extremists. This is an age of barbarians. This is psychotic Islam. No ifs, ands, or buts. If you do not believe Israel, and the entire Judeo-Christian western world, is facing evil click on the link. Pass it to a friend and pray for Gods mercy. Pray for those families who are afraid of real monsters coming to get them tonight. Pray that He will guide us in what we can do. Ratcheting up the hate and war is not an answer, but neither is continuing to turn a blind eye.

We must tell one another the truth. But one can never even find the truth without someone giving you the facts first. Here is the beginning of the trail of facts on ISIS.

On radio, Glenn went into further detail on the importance of facts, truth, and preparing for what comes next.

"My job, as I see it, I search for truth," Glenn said. "That's different from searching for facts. The facts have to be put into place first. That's why we built The Blaze. We built The Blaze as a place that can gather the facts."

"They are involving children now in the beheadings. They are involving children in Iraq on killing and burying people alive. When do we tell our kids this?"

"And if you remember, when I was saying this then in 2006, I was talking principally about Iran and saying you cannot let them get into a position to where they are strong enough to cobble together a caliphate, strong enough to have or be on the edge of nuclear weapons. You can't let it happen. The time is now to squeeze them. The time is over to squeeze them. We don't have the power to squeeze them," Glenn explained. "If we get into a global war now, we will lose everything."

Glenn encouraged people to tune into his TV show Monday at 5pm ET for more on this story and what they need to be preparing for in the very near future.

"The one gift that I do have is to see over the horizon. You notice, while everyone else is freaking out about whatever it is today, I am warning you about what is coming tomorrow. I ask this audience, I beg this audience to do the hard thing, do not freak out about what is happening today. Heed my warning of what is coming tomorrow and correct that, because this is the last hurdle. If we face -- if we don't listen to this last warning, if this exit is missed, we are done. So please, please heed the warning of what comes."

More tonight at 5pm ET on TheBlaze TV.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

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.
