Glenn has a strong warning for anyone looking to Mike Huckabee for answers

Glenn has made no secret of his skepticism of Mike Huckabee. While presenting himself as a conservative, Huckabee has pushed for Common Core and big progressive government policies. But on radio this morning, a caller asked for Glenn to go in depth on his frustration with the former governor and cable news host. The answer?

"Mike Huckabee is a progressive from the get-go.  Anyone that is for the policies that the Obama administration had been for on even just the school lunches is a progressive.  Mike is a guy who believes the Constitution is great, but there are things that we have to do," Glenn said.

WATCH:

CALLER:  I have a question.  I have heard you several times make disparaging comments about Mike Huckabee.

GLENN:  Oh, no, no, no, I would never --

CALLER:  And he's not my guy.  Okay.

GLENN:  Hang on a second.

CALLER:  Can you be more specific, please?

GLENN:  Yes, I would not disparage Mike Huckabee.  I'll tell you the truth about Mike Huckabee.

Mike Huckabee is a progressive from the get-go.  Anyone that is for the policies that the Obama administration had been for on even just the school lunches is a progressive.  Mike is a guy who believes the Constitution is great, but there are things that we have to do.

And I could -- you know, we could -- we could, if I felt it was worth it, spend at least an hour --

STU:  Oh, we spent a lot more than that over the years on this.

GLENN:  Going through his policies.

PAT:  We have explained it.

GLENN:  Yeah, we have explained it.  I will tell you, however, that Mike Huckabee is not what he appears.  Mike Huckabee is one of the most disingenuous men I have ever, ever met.  And I have had several encounters with him and I know a lot of people really like him.  I am not one of them.  I think he's a very disingenuous man.  I think he's a political player, and I have less respect for people who invoke the name of God and then are politicians on top of it.  He's a politician from the get-go.

STU:  My favorite Mike Huckabee policy is the widespread release of dangerous criminals.  I think that's something we can really get on board with.

GLENN:  And why is that?  Why did he do that?

STU:  I believe everybody deserves a second chance, including rapists --

GLENN:  Because of his Christian faith.

STU:  His Christian faith, I guess, inspired that.

PAT:  How about the Common Core stand which is a reasoned policy of Mike Huckabee that everybody -- no, he doesn't support that anymore.  No.  What he supports is changing the name to something else, but keeping the policy into place.

GLENN:  No.  He is -- he is Jeb Bush hiding behind the cross.  He is.

STU:  Did you see -- did you see the letter that he wrote about Common Core?

GLENN:  No.

STU:  This is -- let me see if I can get it to load.

GLENN:  Wasn't he one of the architects?  Wasn't in charge of the governor's conference when this all started.  He was a big player.

STU:  Yeah.  Of course, obviously my computer is going into --

GLENN:  I will tell you that my dislike for him goes beyond his progressive -- he is a liar to your face.  He is a very disingenuous man.

STU:  Yeah, I can't speak -- I can only speak to the fact that his policies are a disaster for conservatives.

GLENN:  Yeah.

STU:  He speaks a game.

GLENN:  You were there.  You were there.

STU:  There's a lot --

GLENN:  You were there with me.

STU:  I don't think I was.

GLENN:  I think you were.  On a tarmac in Idaho.  Or, in --

STU:  I do remember the story, quite clearly.

GLENN:  -- in Iowa.

PAT:  He says that all the criticisms you might have about Common Core -- it says:  It's disturbing to me that there have been criticisms of these standards by other conservatives.  I've heard the arguments that these standards threaten local control of what's being taught in Oklahoma classrooms.

Speaking from one conservative to another, let me assure you, this simply is not true.  They're not something to be afraid of.  Indeed, they are something to embrace.

It goes on and on and says -- I can't find the exact quote that I was reading yesterday.  It was, you know, we must make sure that these standards don't go anywhere.

GLENN:  I can tell you that he is running interference, I believe, for the Republican party as well.  He's running interference for Ted Cruz to try to split the religious vote off of Ted Cruz.  I think that's what's happening.  Just as much as Mitt Romney is trying to run block and tackle for Jeb Bush.  Huckabee is running block and tackle for -- against Ted Cruz.  Being good little food shoulders.  I can guarantee you he doesn't like Ted Cruz's policy.  Guarantee it.

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.
