Here’s a revolutionary idea to fight big government overregulation

Charles Murray believes the country as we know it is over. We live in an increasingly lawless country, where only people with money have access to the courts and even those with money are burdened by countless regulations that handcuff them from doing any real business.

"The Constitution is broken. We could have nine Antonin Scalias or nine Clarence Thomases on the court. They could not reverse a handful of decisions from 1937 to 1943, because if they did, they would be saying about 90% of what the federal government does is unconstitutional. No president would enforce such a Supreme Court decision. The legitimacy of the Supreme Court would be shattered. It can’t happen," Charles said.

"Point number two, we live under an increasingly lawless legal system," Charles said. "If I can’t afford to enter the court system when I have a legitimate grievance that I know I would win if I had enough money, but if I can’t afford to get into it because I can’t afford either the fees or the time that it’s going to take to litigate it, in what sense am I protected by the rule of law?"

Even worse is the legal system created by the regulatory state.

"We have a large extralegal system called the administrative state which lies outside the ordinary rule of law," Charles said. "If the OSHA comes after you, you don’t go to an ordinary court. You go to an administrative court in which the judge works for the Department of Labor or OSHA. The prosecutor works for OSHA."

Charles continued, "The due process of law is in many cases not available to you. You don’t have to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, just a preponderance of the evidence, and guess what, if you’re found guilty and you appeal it, the people on the Court of Appeals work for OSHA. This violates a foundational principle of American law, which is legislation is supposed to be administered by—it’s supposed to be created by the legislature, and an independent judiciary is supposed to adjudicate things. But the entire regulatory state violates all that."

So how do we fight back? Charles thinks you can overwhelm the regulatory state by having people guilty of small infractions fight the battles in court.

"I talked about earlier about somebody coming out of nowhere and providing legal support to ordinary people, but let’s do it on a big scale. I call one version of it the Madison Fund, and it would be a couple hundred million bucks. I’m talking big money. The purpose of it would not be to defend the innocent. It would be to defend the guilty, people who are guilty of violating stupid, pointless regulations. And the idea is to overload the enforcement capacity of the regulatory agencies," Charles explained.

"I want to have an incentive for the bureaucrats to back off, or as one of my friends put it, I want to pour sugar into the government’s gas tank. Once you establish that principle, here’s your endpoint. I want the regulatory agencies to act like state troopers on interstate highways. So, you know and I know that if the speed limit is 65, the flow of traffic on most interstates is about 72, okay? A majority of the American citizens are engaged in civil disobedience because the state troopers can’t stop everybody, so they stop people who are going crazy fast, people who are driving erratically," he continued.

"That’s what I want for the entire regulatory agencies so that they don’t go after us when we have a trivial violation that hasn’t harmed anybody. They reserve their enforcement capability for people who have caused some damage. That would be a big improvement. It doesn’t get laws off the books, okay? It doesn’t get regulations off the books. It changes the way they’re enforced to something that’s a lot more reasonable. No harm, no foul," Charles concluded.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
