Glenn: I’m a liberal...

Don’t panic, Glenn has not pulled an Arlen Specter and flipped ideologies. However, Glenn feels most Americans can identify with one political label not in use much these days: classic liberal. When someone says they’ve been a classic liberal and they voted for JFK back in the day, chances are they are nothing like the progressive liberals of today.

"If you look at the field, you can't say this about Jeb Bush, but Rand Paul. Rand Paul should be the choice of the real left. He should be the choice of the -- I shouldn't say the left. The classic Libertarian. We have to -- you know we put Progressive back into the lexicon for knowing what it was. We got people to stop calling liberals Liberals and started calling them Progressives. I really think we have to start calling ourselves classic Liberals. It is the secret, it is what we're missing. Because most Americans agree. You can't spy on me. We shouldn't have these never -- you know, these never-ending wars. You can't just throw me in jail. You can't kill me without a trial. All of these things. Those are the positions of the classic Liberal. Classic liberalism is what makes America unique. It is what makes us -- it is the reason why the Progressives took that. They took it for a reason. They took that title away for a reason. Why? Because that can't be a choice. That is the choice. That is the choice that unites most of us. That's the one where we all come down together and say look, we can live with each other. Classic liberalism. We need to be classic Liberals. I'm not a conservative, I'm a classic liberal."

"Once you understand what a Progressive is you start calling them that, you've got to take the word liberal back and let them be and wallow in their Progressiveness."

Pat seemed pretty skeptical about the idea of suddenly taking on the mantle of "liberal", but Glenn said that it's what Libertarians need to do in order to bring in people who would never align with conservatives.

"But to me, and I know you don't feel this way, there's nothing wrong with a Conservative title. I don't mind it. I like it. I'm fine with it. I'm conservative. I am. I'm a constitutional Conservative. So I don't have a problem with that title. So I do have a problem with liberalism so it's kind of a -- it's a leap too far for me," Pat argued.

"And here's your thing. You're going to miss about 20% of classic Liberals on the left that just cannot go to the conservative. I don't want to go to the conservative. I can't call it because it's -- it's the GOP.

That's Jeb Bush. You'll never get them. So we're just going to accept that? Or are we going to be the bigger ones to say, look, you can call me whatever you want. I know that classic liberal, I know that I can talk about classic liberalism and I can get the people who think like we do, they may not agree on everything, but they think like we do," Glenn said.

Watch the debate unfold below:

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.
