Great Conservative Minds and the 100-Year Plan

Barack Obama promised in 2008 to fundamentally transform the United States --- and he has. However, it didn't happen overnight. The foundation for his transformation was created one hundred years ago by early 20th century progressives. And in the 1980s, the Tides Foundation finished the job, gathering together activists who figured out how to change America from the inside out.

With his new book Liars coming out late summer, Glenn has been researching Woodrow Wilson and other progressives from this era.

"I'm looking at these guys, and I'm seeing them in a totally different light now. I'm really seeing the guys in the 1880s and the early 20th century as the new Founders. And last night, I wrote in my diary just that, "Where are these guys? Where are the thinkers now?" I mean, these were the biggest thinkers of the late 1800s and early 20th century. They were the college professors. They were the titans of philosophical thought at the time. They were the titans of governmental thought. Where are those guys? They put together a plan. And they knew where they were headed," Glenn said.

While progressives perfectly executed their 100-year plan, conservatives only seem to focus on the next four to eight years.

"We don't seem to have the patience that progressives do," Co-host Pat Gray said.

So what should conservatives do?

"You know, I've been saying this for years. And, you know, I'm not the guy to lead this, but I don't think there's anybody else stepping to the plate," Glenn said. "We have to get with the people who are the greatest thinkers in conservative Libertarian minds today. Get the people of faith, but not the old-line faith, not progressives, not the people who would vote for Donald Trump or who would endorse him today. The people who understand liberty. Get the people of faith. Get the Libertarians that understand that it's not all about weed; it's about the principles of freedom."

Glenn and his co-hosts tossed out a few names that would fit the bill, like Mary Matalin, Mark Levin, Robbie George, Erick Erickson, George Will and Jonah Goldberg.

"Put them together in a room and say, "Okay, guys, we need a 100-year plan," Glenn said. "What are we striving for in the next two years, four years, 10 years, 20 years, 50 years? Where are we going to be?"

A think tank of the best conservative minds would be a good place to begin turning the country around and return to our Founding Principles. Only liberty-loving, constitutional conservatives who've not sold their soul to an election or a party need apply.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
