Who really should have been named Person of the Year? Here are some much better options...

On radio today, Glenn lamented how political correctness has ruined what was already a ridiculous feature, the TIME Person of the Year issue. Now it’s never an actual single person, it’s always a particular group. Glenn had a couple nominations of his own - Constitutional Lawyer Jonathan Turley was one and perhaps more surprisingly, Michael Brown was the other.

"If you look at Michael Brown, I think that he is a candidate for person of the year because he has dominated the news. His act of illegal activity in the first place is being excused. And that's where society is going. He then turned on a cop. Threatened a cop. Was in a scuffle with a cop. Gets killed. Nobody pays attention. Because of him, we now have protests, but we also know that there were African-Americans that came up to the grand jury to testify, but those African-Americans were too afraid of their own community. Just about every story you need to tell in America can be told with the Michael Brown story," Glenn explained.

"You tell the Michael Brown story, and depending on how you tell it, on what part you focus on, you know, you can tell the lies that America is the most racist place in the world."

Pat made a strong case for Jonathan Turley, the lawyer for the Republicans in their suit against President Obama which claims Obamacare is being implemented illegally. The catch? He's a self-proclaimed liberal.

Pat explained, "How about Jonathan Turley? A constitutional lawyer. A guy who voted for Obama. But a man who puts the Constitution above partisan politics and is now the lead attorney for Republicans in their suit against the president right now because of his unconstitutional activities. So he's a guy who respects the Constitution, defends the Constitution. There aren't very me of those who will put all of that ahead of politics."

More nominations came in from callers during the show.

Franklin Graham

"My recommendation for person of the year is somebody that's a real renaissance man and a real warrior. He goes -- a lot of his work is done under the covers. But the biggest thing that he's done for us as a nation is that he's sat at the gates and looked Ebola in the face and said no. Those Ebola doctors, they answer to him."

Benjamin Netanyahu

"And my nomination for person of the year would be Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel. What he did is very, very bold and shows great character. And it's hard to be a leader in these times. And, you know, he should be really recognized for what he did and still standing up and standing alone as a lone wolf against Hamas and pretty much the whole Middle East, as everyone else in the world has abandoned him."

Barack Obama

"Yes, I think Barack Obama should be listed because he's got Putin talking to himself. He just can't believe that he got man of the year because Obama has destroyed the country by destroying our Constitution and Putin couldn't get it done."

Dave Barton

"I'd like to nominate Dave Barton for his work in Common Core. Because if we lose our kids, we lose everything."

Chris Paronto

"He was one of the operatives in Benghazi. He's one of the three that has written the book, Thirteen Hours. He's the most outspoken. It seems the more they throw at him, the more he stands firm. And he says, oh, no. This is what happened."

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.
