Are We on the Brink of a Charles Sumner Moment and Civil War?

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) crashed the sit-in pillow party orchestrated by House Democrats, offering up a dose of reality. The Dems continue to blame guns for the terrorist attack in Orlando, refusing to name the real culprit --- radical Islam.

Gohmert bravely confronted them with the truth, yelling "Radical Islam killed these people!" pointing to posters with photos of gun violence victims.

Things are reaching a fever pitch that Glenn has warned about for years.

"Who saw Louie Gohmert on the floor of the House yesterday and thought to themselves, 'Oh, my gosh, this is what Glenn Beck has been talking about is coming and the warning of that's right before we break apart?'" Glenn asked. "We are on the brink of civil war. We are on the brink of breaking apart."

Co-host Pat Gray agreed.

"We're on the brink of a Charles Sumner moment, where he got beaten with a cane over the expansion of slavery in the country," Pat said.

For those unfamiliar with this story from American history, Charles Sumner was a senator from Massachusetts who, as part of the Radical Republicans, fought to end slavery. His speeches admonishing slavery infuriated pro-slavery senators --- both Democrats and moderate Republicans. In 1856, Representative Preston Brooks, a democrat from South Carolina, beat Sumner severely on the head with a cane. Sumner, who became blinded by his own blood, staggered up the aisle of the senate chamber before collapsing and lapsing into unconsciousness. Brooks continued beating a motionless Sumner until his cane broke. Several other senators attempted to help Sumner, but were blocked by fellow South Carolinian, Laurence Keitt, who brandished a pistol and shouted, "Let them be!"

Glenn fears we're headed in the same direction.

"Mark my words. It will be someone like Ted Cruz or Louie Gohmert that gets the cane to the head. It will be a self-righteous progressive that will beat a liberty person almost to death. That's what happened in the 1800s," Glenn said.

During the mayhem yesterday when Gohmert bravely spoke the truth, another voice boomed out, trying to drown out the opposition.

Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun? Why do you want to protect terrorists from buying a gun? Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun? Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun?

"Does this make any sense? Does this make any sense at all? You've got the Democrats saying, 'Why would you want a terrorist to buy a gun? Why would you want a terrorist to buy a gun' The same people who cannot bring themselves to even identify terrorists," Glenn said.

As always, Democrats want it both ways to suit their agenda of the moment.

"They're the same people who would not say anything about Fort Hood. This is a game, guys. You're watching a play. Why do you want terrorists to buy guns? That's not the position of the left. Terrorists don't exist," Glenn said.

Had Democrats done their job and allowed the FBI to flag Mateen as a terrorist and place him on a watch list, had they not dismissed red flags raised by American citizens, including the owner of a gun shop, Omar Mateen would have never purchased a gun legally. Political correctness enforced by Democrats failed the American people and citizens at an Orlando nightclub, allowing a radicalized terrorist to kill 49 innocent people and wound scores more.

"Here's the problem: If he would have been on the terror watch list and if they were investigating him, if people had made these charges, they couldn't really go in and look at his computer. Yes, they can. It's called the NSA. I thought that's what we were doing. I thought that's what they were doing illegally against the Constitution. See, none of this makes sense. They are not fighting for life. And they are not fighting for civil rights.

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.
