Will Britain Leave the European Union?

While American's are caught up in choosing their next president, Great Britain is fighting for its sovereignty and the future of the European Union.

European Union Parliament member, Daniel Hannan, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to discuss what has become known as The Brexit - or Britain's exit from the European Union.

"We have a referendum on the 23rd of June," Hannan said. "It's exactly as you say. It's on whether the UK leaves the European Union. I am, as you correctly guessed, campaigning to leave. That would mean that my job disappears. I would be giving up a comfortable and well-remunerated position as a Member of the European Parliament because there wouldn't be any more British Members of the European Parliament."

Just like in America, the issue seems to come down to money. Big business wants to stay in and the people want out.

"I think it is fair to say I think both sides would acknowledge this, that the elites tend to be overwhelmingly for staying in --- big business, the mega banks, the politicians, the civil servants. The campaign to stay in is being bankrolled by Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan and a couple of big multinationals," Hannan said.

One thing that will not help the elites is enlisting the aid of America's 'Elitist in Chief.'

"I think the prime minister called in a favor and invited your president to come over and help him. And last week, Barack Obama made a speech saying, 'If you guys leave the European Union, you'll be at the back of the queue for a trade deal with us,'" Hannan said.

Being told what to do by a foreign government typically doesn't go over too well, and it comes as no surprise to Glenn.

"You guys never get involved in our politics," Glenn said. "And honestly, when a leader does tell us what to do, we're like, 'Screw you.' So I imagine it was the same effect over in England."

Ted Cruz had a much different reaction than Obama's.

"There was another much less widely reported intervention because it was much more polite," Hannan said. "This morning, in the London Times, there was an article by Ted Cruz where he said, 'Look, of course, it's for you guys to decide. I'm not going to suggest which way you vote.' In other words, he didn't do an Obama. But he said, 'If you do decide to leave, you would be first in the line for a trade deal because you guys are our friends. And it's up to you to exercise your sovereignty however you wish.'"

In addition to Ted Cruz respecting national sovereignty, it was a breath of fresh air for an outsider to appreciate the the U.S. Constitution.

"Yeah. I've become really obsessed with [the U.S. Constitution] because it applies so uncannily to our present debate about the EU. You know, there's that great line about destroying our free system of English laws. There's a line about taking over the power to control the naturalization of foreigners. Even --- this is where it gets really weird --- there's even a really eerie anticipation of the fact that my parliament, the European Parliament, every month shuffles between Brussels and Strasbourg. It's a huge expense and a great inconvenience," Hannan said.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
