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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
