Book Review: Our Lost Constitution

Utah Sen. Mike Lee is a nerd, and he fully embraces the moniker.

In his new book, Our Lost Constitution: The Willful Subversion of America's Founding Document, the senator geeks out, his love for the Constitution oozing off the page.

Ever the buttoned-up statesman, Lee gives us a peek at his youthful exploits in the introduction, which is not to be skipped. The elaborate story involves an 11- or 12-year-old Mike home alone with his sister, a busload of pro-choice protestors, the on/off switch for lawn sprinklers and a stash of illegal fireworks.

Growing up with a father who would become the U.S. Solicitor General and argue cases before the Supreme Court, Lee shares how his upbringing shaped him. Naturally, family disputes were settled by each party making their case. Lee would also learn to understand and revere the Constitution watching his Dad argue cases in the highest courts in the land.

From the outset of Our Lost Constitution, Lee is straightforward about taking a few liberties when imagining daily life for our Founders, especially at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. But he also found the true stories more dramatic than anything he could have imagined.

The book --- chock-full of details, unbridled passion and reverence for our nation's Founding document --- is masterfully written and makes you feel as if Lee himself is reading it to you. He weaves the story brilliantly throughout American history, from our nation's Founding to FDR's era to today.

It's not all sunshine and lollipops, though. Lee shines a light on the corruption and willful subversion of the Constitution today. Whether giving more power to the Executive Branch than the Founders intended or passing legislation so Americans can see what's in it, Lee shows the abuses our leaders have committed to amass more power.

He also makes the case that Americans can solve many of our problems with three words.

“All they need is the ability to recognize deprivations of the Constitution when they arise, and just as importantly, to be able to trigger three words: THIS IS WHY,” Lee said recently on The Glenn Beck Program. “This is why we have the Fourth Amendment. This is why we have the Legislative Powers Clause. This is why we have the Origination Clause.”

In the chapter titled, "The Compromise That Saved the Constitutional Convention," Lee examines the conversations and compromises required to pass the miracle we know as the Constitution, comparing their arguments to today's and showing that conversations and compromises can change the world.

“We can still win this. But we’ve got to win the conversation. We have to have the conversation in the first place,” Lee said. “That conversation hasn’t been taking place because our schools don’t teach civics anymore like they used to. They don’t teach the stories behind our Constitution.”

Lee might be a constitutional geek, a lawyer and a United States Senator, but the role he adds to his resume in Our Lost Constitution is that of storyteller, effortlessly embracing the opportunity to share his love for our nation's Founders and their work in crafting an unparalleled document.

Our Lost Constitution is a must-read for any constitutionalist and all freedom-loving people. Lee provides a compelling case for returning to the original principles and values our Founders laid out.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
