Glenn's Action Items and Plea to the Gay Community After Orlando

The media talks about the Orlando story as a mass shooting rather than a terror attack --- but their willful ignorance doesn't change the truth.

"We have to be really clear, the nation is at war. From 9/11 to the Boston Marathon, from Fort Hood to Chattanooga, from San Bernardino to Orlando, our nation is at war," Glenn said.

Aside from the obvious --- being at war with radical Islam --- we're also fighting a battle with the progressive left and their effort to divide us from each other and our principles.

"Before Obama's election, research showed that this was the first generation that did not see race. But because of politics, they now see race. That very generation now sees race," Glenn said.

So what can we do in the aftermath of Orlando to fight these battles and stand united as American citizens, irrespective of our differences?

"I will tell you this: I'm making a list of the things that I will do. I suggest you do the same," Glenn said.

What's on Glenn's list?

I will teach my children the truth in a more fervent fashion, with more urgency.

I will teach my children the difference between good and evil by speaking out against evil.

I will stand against evil, and I will stand for good.

I will listen. I will learn. I will try to stay away from divisive politics while holding firm to the truth.

I will unite with others on the truth.

I will not be divided from the truth, living in a dream world that will only cause more misery.

I will stand with the courageous mayor of Irving, Texas, who is standing up for the U.S. Constitution and laws of Texas.

I will carry a gun.

"Nobody's coming into my studios to slaughter. While audience members cannot come in with a gun, this is not a gun-free zone. The only reason why we don't let audience members come in with a gun is because we do live television and people would love to be famous. So no guns are allowed in the studio. But don't mistake that for a gun-free zone because we're not a sitting target. Somebody smuggles a gun into this building, we'll kill you, and we'll kill you fast," Glenn said.

Glenn vehemently disagrees with Jimmy Carter's notion about first responders.

"That term started with Jimmy Carter. He's the one that made that famous, that we all think that [the EMS and police are] the first responders. It's a lie. We are the first responders. And if somebody wants to come into my place of business and start screaming about how great Allah is and they start to even think that they are going to pull the trigger on me or someone else, I will pull the trigger on them. We're not calling the police and waiting for them. We will be the first responder," Glenn said.

As a law-abiding citizen, Glenn understands the great responsibility that comes with exercising his Second Amendment rights.

"You don't want guns on a dance floor where there's booze. There are some places like that you just don't want to carry a gun. But by God, I'll carry a gun wherever I can, and I'll avoid those places where I can't carry a gun," Glenn said.

The enemy in this war doesn't just target homosexuals --- they target Christians, Muslims who aren't Muslim enough, anyone who doesn't bow to Sharia law.

"I am begging you, I am begging you, if you're a member of the gay community, please, let's stand arm in arm. Please, let's stand together. We may not agree on everything. We may not agree on wedding cakes, but God Almighty, we agree on life," Glenn said. "And we agree on your right and my right to have a different lifestyle and to live the life that you want to live. We agree on equal rights, even though sometimes the rights of others piss us off."

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.
