Mickey Mouse Operation: Why Didn't the FBI Heed Disney's Warning?

Perhaps the biggest tragedy of the Orlando terrorist attack is that it could have been stopped. As usual, the warning signs were ignored.

"Did you hear that the Mouse Police had warned the FBI about the shooter? You know, he had been casing several places, including [Pulse], but he also was casing Disney. Now, Disney, can you imagine the security protocols that Disney has to make sure none of this has happened since 2001," Glenn asked. "I mean, you go in and you start shooting people at Disney World or Disneyland, and it's a totally different world. And they know it. So Disney police are good."

Yet even an April warning from Disney --- which followed previous warnings from the shooter's co-workers --- failed to alarm FBI officials enough to detain Mateen and stop the attack at Pulse.

"We have a problem with the FBI, and I don't think it's the local guys, I really don't. I think there has been a management change," Glenn said.

The FBI's report on the complaints against Mateen concluded that the people reporting on him were bigots and racists.

"So they did their investigation on him and came out and said, 'You know what, I'm sorry you have to deal with all these racists at work.' I personally think that this administration comes into it with that bias."

Has the Obama administration given a top-down order and tied the hands of FBI agents on the ground?

"You can't look at certain things, you can't say certain things, you can't be trained about certain things on Islam, I think there is such a bias against the people, in favor of a possible extremist," Glenn speculated.

The Obama administration has shown again and again they protect the rights of extremists and ideologists over regular American citizens.

"They're coming in with a bias against people who are calling and saying, "Hey, I think there's something suspicious," Glenn said.

"The problem with this whole conversation is we're not talking about what really matters: A, we've moved past the people who are still having surgery, like Tony, who is still in the, 'I got to fight. I got to live. I love my family, and God's got a plan for me' mode. We just blew by all of that, and we went to a narrative of, 'Is this anti-gay?'"

The shooter reportedly said 'Allahu Akbar' while carrying out the attack. The shooter reportedly called 911 during the attack and said, 'This is dedicated to ISIS.' The shooter reportedly posted to Facebook the day of the attack, pledging allegiance to the leader of ISIS and vowing more attacks.

"We're not really even having that conversation. We are actually talking about taking the rights away from law-abiding citizens. Donald Trump, 'our champion,' is saying that he's going to talk to the NRA and the NRA has got to compromise on the no-fly list," Glenn said.

The real conversation we should be having is about Islamic extremists --- and they're devotion to killing anyone that doesn't agree with them. Because it is about Islam.

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.
