Vote YES to Remove Grover Norquist From NRA Board

Glenn is urging all NRA members to vote "YES" to recall Grover Norquist from the NRA board of directors. This is a chance for responsible gun owners to make an immediate impact.

Grover Norquist, founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform and co-founder of the Islamic Free Market Institute, came under the spotlight thanks in part to Glenn raising concerns Norquist's associations with known radical Islamists. Mr. Norquist “voluntarily” suspended himself from the NRA board In April of 2015.

Norquist's longtime history with and connections to Islamic radicals spurred members of the NRA to submit a petition to recall and remove him from the NRA board. Voting is open to all NRA members and ballots will be arriving in the mail.

NRA Members have until May 1, 2016 to submit their votes.

In March of 2015, Glenn had a on-air, hour-long interview with Mr. Norquist and came to the following conclusion: Norquist was lying.

“That guy is very dangerous and needs to be removed from the NRA," Glenn said on radio Friday. "So when you get your ballot, if you're an NRA member, make sure you vote 'YES' on the recall of Grover Norquist from the board. Yes, you want him removed from the board of directors from the NRA. Enough infiltration."

Glenn went on to say while he loves Norquist's flat tax ideas, his connections to dangerous people on the Islamist side is frightening.

"It needs to end," Glenn said.

Here are details from the petition:

THE RECALL PETITION AND MR. WEBER'S PRESENTATION

The Petition asserts that Mr. Norquist's presence on the NRA Board of Directors (the ''NRA Board") has "become a confusing distraction to the NRA's mission" of defending the Second Amendment. Mr. Weber (the Petitioner) believes that Mr. Norquist's "statements and known associations" with radical Islamists and Muslims, as claimed in a book called "Agent of Influence," have caused serious disruption in the NRA. As a result, Mr. Weber asks that Mr. Norquist be removed from the NRA Board. "Agent of Influence" presents information concerning Islam 's threat to the security of the United States and says that certain "associates" of Mr. Norquist were involved. These charges include:

• Mr. Norquist's alleged role in a purported seditious meeting at his offices in Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001, after the attacks;

• A $ 10,000 contribution from Abdul Rahman Al-Amoudi to a group that Mr. Norquist helped start --- the Islamic Free Market Institute (IFMI);

• Mr. Norquist's outreach to Muslim American voters during the 2000 Bush Presidential Campaign; and,

• Mr. Norquist's opposition to the use of secret evidence in the trials of suspected Muslim terrorists.

GROVER NORQUIST'S RESPONSE TO THE REMOVAL PETITION

Mr. Norquist testified under oath for most of the hearing methodically rebutting multiple charges made in "Agent of Influence." He firmly stated that he was a loyal American who has never been, and would never be, involved in activities harmful to the United States and has been a loyal member of the NRA and the NRA Board, who has engaged in significant efforts in support of the Second Amendment. He firmly defended saying that he had no real ties to the Muslim "bad actors" cited by the Petitioner and that those Muslims he did have ties to were not "bad actors."

With respect to the key charges:

• 9/11/01 Allegations: Mr. Norquist testified he was in San Diego the night before, making a speech, took a red eye flight back to BWI (Baltimore) airport, and never went to his Washington, D.C. office on 9/11. He was supported by written statements from a number of his employees who were in the office that day.

• Mr. Norquist stated that IFMI was a legitimate business policy organization with no ties to terrorism, that he did not solicit the money, and that Mr. Al-Amoudi had no role or influence at IFMI whatsoever.

• Mr. Norquist testified that his 2000 election Muslim voter turnout efforts were critical to President Bush's victory and unrelated to any terrorist activities.

• Mr. Norquist pointed out that his opposition to the use of secret evidence was legitimate and shared by numerous loyal and well-respected Americans.

Again, NRA members have until May 1, 2016 to submit their votes.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
