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.

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.
