Hillary Clinton Should Be in Prison, Here's Why

The Context

Former Secretary of State --- now presidential candidate --- Hillary Clinton set up a home-brewed email system for handling government business. That's a big no-no, and she should have known better (well, it's likely she did know better, but she's a Clinton so different rules apply, right?) The latest charge is that her team cut and pasted highly classified documents to remove the "top secret" classification.

Hillary Believes in Going Paperless

For over a year, Hillary has denied sending any classified information on her private server. She sent an estimated 30,000 emails (most of them, she says, about yoga and planning her daughter's wedding). Uh huh. Of those 30,000 emails, the Inspector General was only allowed to see 40. So, just 29,960 more to go. Of those 40 emails, four were found to contain classified information.

The Meaning of "Is"

Bill Clinton has taught Hillary well. She's playing the "definition of is" game from her husband's old sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky. Hillary says she never sent emails marked as classified without addressing the actual content of the emails. If she's the smartest woman in the room, she should know the difference between classified and non-classified content.

The Skiff of the Matter

There are three basic levels of classification for government documents --- Confidential, Secret and Top Secret. Compromised Top Secret information would be a devastating blow to our national security. Top Secret documents also have a coding system -- SI, TK and NOFORN. What do they mean? SI means Sensitive Information. TK means Talent Keyhole or information retrieved from spy satellites. NOFORN means No Foreign Government can see this info. Hillary's emails very likely contained intel from an NSA satellite program.

Glenn demonstrated Tuesday exactly what it would look like for Hillary's team to deliberately access secured documents and remove them without the security classification.

"The only way you can get Top Secret information is in a wildly secure and protected room called the SCIF [pronounced skiff]," Glenn said. "The only way you could get this stuff off site is to print out the classified document, scan it, memorize it --- then go copy and paste it."

Common Sense Bottom Line

Hillary Clinton broke federal laws and compromised the security of the United States of America. She should be behind bars.

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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
