Lovely: Greece elects commie as new PM

So, some pretty good times in Greece right now. The communist party just won elections there while the neo-Nazi party came in 3rd, despite campaigning from prison while awaiting court dates. As if that wasn’t bad enough, it appears the communists and the Nazis are joining together to fight austerity. What could possibly go wrong?

Thankfully, Glenn is here to explain:

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

GLENN: We were also talking in the break -- I showed the guys a picture of the new prime minister. He's far left, communist, far left prime minister of Greece. I told you that the old hatreds would rise again. I told you before the Golden Dawn party, that the Nazi party would rise again and the communists would rise again and you would see the conflicts of the 1930s. That was poo-pooed.

Then I went on to say that the left and the right, the communists and the fascists will work together in common goals to destroy the west. That was poo-pooed.

What happened this weekend is the Nazi party gained more seats in parliament, and the communists swept. So now the moderates are out in Greece. So the first thing that the prime minister does this weekend in Greece, and this is really important. What is the first thing he does if you are the prime minister of Greece? He goes an gets some flowers and goes to memorial, and he puts flowers down in this park at this memorial, where the Germans executed 200 Greeks during World War II.

Why is that significant? Because Germans are the ones that gave Greece their money. So when Greece needed a bailout, they went to the -- the Bundesbank and said we need to borrow some money. The German bank gave them the money, underwrote their economy and now they are controlled by the Germans.

PAT: And the Germans wanted them to cut back on spending.

GLENN: 'Look, you guys are living it up. I mean, it's irresponsible. You can't pay us back if you were continuing to spend the way you are spending, so you can't spend. And we are the ones that -- we gave you the money. Now be responsible with it.' And that's called austerity cutbacks.

Well, the Greek people did not want to do it, because it's hard. You are not living the same life you have been living, and it is going to get really hard. This is coming to America, by the way. It is going to get really tough.

So the Germans are like 'look, we aren't going to continue to fund this. You have to cut back.' So the first thing the new prime minister does is put flowers down at the place where they shot the Germans, as a shot across the bow to Germany saying 'we know who you are. You screwed us before, you shot and killed our people, and I want you to understand I know who you are and you're not going to do that to us again.'

It's a very dangerous symbol. He was there, by the way with a whole bunch of red flags behind him. It is a very dangerous time, which brings me to something else Pat and I talked about this weekend.

Pat and I have had decided that we are going to go, take our families to Europe this summer, and here's why.

I'm sharing this with you because of the conversation that we had this weekend. We are not going because 'hey, let's go live it up and go to Europe.' Pat and I truly believe that we are in the 1930s. I don't know where, but we are in the 1930s, and maybe it's '39 or '35, I don't know, but history is repeating itself.

If I would have said to you in 1935, 'hey, let's go to Europe,' you would have said well 'it's getting kind of dangerous there. I don't know.' 'Hey, let's go to Germany, let's go to France, let's see some of these places, because I

don't know what the world is going to look like.' If you missed your opportunity in the 1930s, the next time that you would have wanted to take a vacation and go to Europe would have been probably about 1950. You would have gone in 1950, but everything would have been under construction and everything would have been new. Germany no longer looked like Germany.

Because of what is happening, I believe London, France, Germany Greece, I believe these things could be destroyed in what is coming and especially because, remember who you are fighting against. You are fighting against Islamic extremists. The places that they will target will be places like the Cathedral of Notre Dame.

You could go back to France in 15 years from now and it might be free. It might not be. It might be free, but the Cathedral of Notre Dame may be gone. Whether that's from war or from terrorists.

We are in a time right now that the world is going to change. And Pat and I were talking about our kids. We would like our kids to see these things because in 15 years from now, I don't want to go when I'm 65 or 70 years old. I want to go now. I want to be able to enjoy it and see it and walk around with my kids, and I want my kids to see it, in case it's lost.

We're telling you this to give you some clue as to what time I think we are in. And the whole thing has been a stair step, and you can always turn around and go back down and walk down the stairs the other way, but the world is not doing it. And they're escalating.

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.
