Glenn's powerful message to Republican representatives

If you listened to yesterday's radio program, you are aware that Glenn is supporting Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) in his challenge against House Speaker John Boehner for the top spot in Congress.

Despite Glenn's strong feelings for Gohmert's ability to be successful in this role, the mainstream media has failed to agree with Glenn. At the beginning of his radio show, Glenn quoted a new Gallup poll that 60 percent of Republican GOP voters would like Boehner to leave his position. Glenn then decided to send a message to those House Representatives who would be participating in the vote today, saying "If you're putting your money behind John Boehner, you're backing the wrong horse. I don't mean politically speaking. I mean for the sake of the country. What are you there for? For politics or for the state of the country?"

Glenn took the time to say that he does, indeed, relate to the difficult decisions and pressure one in leadership faces on a daily basis. Glenn even listed some of the issues he has faced as a business owner dealing with financial pressures. Despite the pressure though, the key is to not compromise. For Glenn, the realization that he had compromised too much came from his children. Glenn said, "All my kids had to say to me was, 'Oh'. That was it. But it was a condemning, 'Oh'. It was an, 'Oh. You've turned into one of them.' They never said that. They didn't have to. I knew it."

Just as Glenn realized he had strayed from his goals based on his children's judgement of him, those in political power, or in any leadership role, need to take a step back and re-evaulate who they are and what they believe. In a desperate plea to those in Washington, D.C. Glenn left them with some powerful words to consider:

It's time to step back and say, okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Who am I really? What is it I really believe in?

See, what happens is, these guys go into Washington and they believe in something. Then they get there and they listen to these consultants. I'm telling you right now, defund the G.O.P. You know what the problem is? The damn consultants that the G.O.P. hires. They're the same people over and over and over and over again. And what happens is, the fresh blood goes in, and they don't know what the hell they're doing. They go in and sit around to all these experts that they've seen on TV forever. They say, listen, kid, you don't understand how this works. I do, I've been here for 25 years.

You need to have the spine in Washington to say, you know what you've been here for 25 years. What have you done for us?

Listen to the rest of Glenn's powerful monologue below:

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: You know, this is why -- you know what -- this is why we don't like talking politics. We've talked about these guys. We believe in these guys. Chris Stewart. I believe in him. Where is he? Jason Chaffetz. Where are you, dude? You're telling me that John Boehner is the future?

If you're putting your money behind John Boehner, you're backing the wrong horse. I don't mean politically speaking. I mean for the sake of the country. What are you there for? For politics or for the state of the country?

Let me tell you something: Let me give a message right directly to those Republicans who are waffling today. Those Republicans who have listened to the pressure.

I run a business. I know pressure. And I'm going to be real honest with you. Have you been to TheBlaze.com lately? TheBlaze.com in the last year has more garbage ads on it than I've ever seen. And I can't take them anymore. The pop-ups and the pop-behinds and everything else. I can't take them. We get complaints. We should get complaints. You should be pissed at those.

Now, here's what happened: Financial pressures start to come in. You start to say, well, we have to take this. Before, you know, you've comprised yourself into a position to where you look like crap. You become everything that you despise. So now you have to go and reset.

So here's the decision I had to make over the summer. I start to get well. I start looking at my company and everything we're doing. And I say, why are we doing this? Why is this happening. This goes against our principles. Why would we do these things? Well, because if we don't do that, then we'll have to do this. Then that will cause this. And that will cause this to happen. Before we know it, we'll be all out of control.

And, quite honestly, when I was not healthy, I was accepting that excuse. You know what changed me? And hear me clearly, Republicans. Because you don't have to be in my business. This is just my way of relating to it. I don't know what your way of relating it is, I bet you there's businesspeople and politicians and moms who find themselves in exactly the same situation, just different circumstance.

Here's what changed it: My children.

Well, dad, how come you're allowing that to happen?

Well, because if I don't do that, then this will happen and this will happen.

All my kids had to say to me was, oh. That was it. But it was a condemning, oh. It was an, oh. You've turned into one of them.

They never said that. They didn't have to. I knew it.

You listen to me, Republicans, you either stand for something or you don't. And just like my situation with all these damn pop-up ads, it will take me a while to clear them all out. It will take me a while because I've made mistakes. Company has made mistakes. It will take a while to clear all this crap out.

Okay. So I take the next eight months, six months, whatever it is, clearing this crap out to reset it to get it right. Or I could just say, well, it will be too much problem. It will solve itself in some way magically, no, it won't. Are you going to be one of those people that are looking at the problems and say, well, I have to work within the system and I have to do -- the system is broken. The system is broken.

And whether that system is in your house, in your business or in Washington, DC, we all know it's broken.

So you're not going to be able to repair this anymore. There's too many patches on this tire. It's time for a new course. It's time to step back and say, okay, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Who am I really? What is it I really believe in?

See, what happens is, these guys go into Washington and they believe in something. Then they get there and they listen to these consultants. I'm telling you right now, defund the G.O.P. You know what the problem is? The damn consultants that the G.O.P. hires. They're the same people over and over and over and over again. And what happens is, the fresh blood goes in, and they don't know what the hell they're doing. They go in and sit around to all these experts that they've seen on TV forever. They say, listen, kid, you don't understand how this works. I do, I've been here for 25 years.

You need to have the spine in Washington to say, you know what you've been here for 25 years. What have you done for us?

Well, we've had a win -- when? Tell me the win for the Constitution. I can tell you the losses for the Constitution. I can tell you we're enslaving our children with this debt. I can tell you right now that there are Americans all across the country that can't afford health insurance anymore.

So don't tell me you've been here for 25 years. You tell me you've been here for 25 minutes. I'm starting to think that you're part of the problem.

I'm begging the people in Washington to hear me clearly.

You think about your children. And if you can explain your vote to your children and say, look, I know that John Boehner is a bad guy. I know he's standing against all the things we're for. I know he's spending us into oblivion. I know that he's not securing the border. I know that he's going against what I said I would do on Obamacare.

But, kids, you see, I have to do this. Because this is the way adults play these games. This is the way the system works.

If you can honestly look at your children and say that, and they don't look at you and say, oh, then you go ahead and vote.

But when your kids look at you, you understand that what you're teaching them is: Kids, sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing. Sometimes it's really right to sell out our principles and to sell out what I said I would do because I have to play the game.

Don't play the game. Don't play the game.

Do the right thing. Where is your faith? Where is your faith in the American people? The American people can handle it. They're big enough. We know it's coming. We don't know how bad it is. But believe me, if this is your first day in Congress, you will soon -- every single congressman I've ever met, every single politician I've ever met, they get into Congress and they tell me six months into it, man, I had no idea it was this bad.

Really? You were that naive? No, Glenn. Even you don't know how bad it is. Have you listened to my program? If it's worse than I say it is, then you have a responsibility to get on the air and say that.

Well, we can't. I mean, the American people might panic.

No, they won't. Have faith in the American people. Have faith in yourself. Have faith in the system. Have faith in the Constitution. Have faith in our founders. Be that standard-bearer.

George Washington said at the Constitutional Convention: George, what do we do? Do we comprise here?

Let us raise a standard that the wise and the honest can repair.

Well, it's time for the wise and honest to repair it. We know it won't be easy. I won't play the game.

I'm begging those in Washington: Stop playing the game. You know what the right thing to do is. Stop listening to the experts. The experts are the ones who got us here.

How many times would you use Google Maps if every time it took you to the wrong destination? How many times would you keep using Google Maps?

Oh, crap. It keeps taking me to the wrong house. Oh, crap, it keeps taking me to the wrong house. Yes, but we're the experts. You're taking me to the wrong house.

Stop using the experts. They're wrong.

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.
