Zuhdi Jasser: We Have to Stand by Our Constitutional Principles and Human Rights

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, contributor on TheBlaze and author of Battle For the Soul of Islam, joined Glenn on radio Friday to discuss his new website TakeIslamBack.com, launching next week. Dr. Jasser has been a leading voice against radical Islam.

"What is your life like, Zuhdi? Do you have a lot of threats on your life?" Glenn asked.

Most of the threats against Dr. Jasser come from radical Islamists and neo-Nazis who think he's an apologist and lying about Islam.

"But I have to tell you, I don't like to talk about it much because it pales in comparison to the real heroes in the prisons of Syria and Saudi Arabia, Iran, that truly have no freedom," Dr. Jasser said.

Recognizing full well the blessings of free speech in the United States, Dr. Jasser believes it's imperative for peace-loving Muslims in the West to speak up.

"Seventy percent of the world lives under some type of oppressive force. And you set aside China and Russia, the rest is all Islamists that are destroying the world's freedoms. And they're coming to the West if we don't begin to defend what we believe in our constitutional principles," Dr. Jasser said.

Germany, where migrant rapes and fascism are both on the rise, provides a perfect example of what festers when real issues are left unresolved --- and that worries Dr. Jasser.

"I was actually very happy about Brexit because the EU's disillusion of national identity was one of the reasons Islamism was taking such root in the immigrant communities there. And the opposite reaction to that was the neo-nation, you know, neo-fascism of many of the movements. And the only way to find a middle ground there is to support secular nationalism of Britain, of Germany, of Belgium, in a reestablishment of the ideas through classical liberalism and democracy that Europe was built on," Dr. Jasser said.

Just two days ago, a British citizen was given 12 months detention and community service after posting on Facebook that he didn't want Muslims coming into the country.

"If you can't write things publicly and have free speech to do that, the Brits are starting to buckle down like the Saudis. I mean, this is going to cause their country to bust at the seams, and we can't do that. We have to stand by our constitutional principles and human rights," Dr. Jasser said.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
