Obama Wants China, Russia and Iran to Have a Say in Your First Amendment Rights

What would economic expert Milton Friedman have said about handing over control of the internet to an international body? One thing's for sure, it would have been a major red flag to him.

"I was talking to a friend of mine the other day who was good friends with Milton Friedman and spent a lot of time learning from him and talking to him and picking his brain," Glenn said Thursday on his radio program.

One question his friend asked Friedman had to do with whether or not he ever felt depressed about the direction the country was going since people didn't really understand totalitarianism. Friedman answered "no."

Why? Because he never felt anyone was trying to burn books. Only when the opposition is trying to be silenced is there real trouble, Friedman advised his friend.

According to Friedman's reasoning, real trouble has arrived.

"I don't know why we're not paying attention to what's happening with the internet. This president is giving away the internet. Now, this is our invention. This is us. This is America. America developed the internet," Glenn said.

Obama has made significant inroads in handing over control of the internet --- without approval from Congress or the American people. More than two years ago, he began the process of transferring control to an international organization called Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers Congress (ICANN), which is accountable to governments like China, Russia and Iran.

"It belongs to us. Now we're giving it away. And who will be in charge of the internet? China and Russia will have major seats at the table. China and Russia? Both places that stifle freedom of speech, both places that kill their reporters if they say something against the regime? Are we out of our ever loving minds?" Glenn said.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is leading the charge to stop the Obama administration, and recently released an ad to inform the American public:

"I don't care to see the full force of a global government. And no matter what I might say about Barack Obama's government or Hillary Clinton's government or Donald Trump's government, it's still better than Russia and China. And I don't want the internet to go to Russia and China, but we are not paying attention to what's happening," Glenn said.

He continued.

"You will not be able to find the truth. If they have control of things, you will not be able to find the truth. Now, what they're saying to you is Well, there are a lot of things that happen on the internet that are bad. Yes, there are. But has your life on the total gotten better or worse because of the internet?" Glenn asked.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
