The Yahoos at YAHOO Confirm Massive Security Breach

Thanks YAHOO. It's good to know protecting your valued user accounts was priority number one. According to Recode, a hacker named “Peace” hacked into at least 500 million user accounts bringing chaos to the internet giant just as its sale to Verizon is pending. Details including names, passwords, email addresses, phone numbers and security questions were stolen from the company’s network.

"But the good thing is they got this information out right away. And --- oh, wait --- no, this happened in 2014," Glenn said sarcastically on his radio program.

Take heart, though, YAHOO believes credit card and bank details were not included in the stolen data. They've been notifying affected users to change their passwords and invalidating security questions so they can’t be used to access accounts (but don't worry if you use those same security questions on other accounts because internet thieves never compile details from multiple sources).

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these risk-free questions:

• If you run YAHOO, should you feel like a yahoo?

• Did Alaska or Iowa hack into YAHOO?

• If Alaska is the state-sponsored hacker, will you get free salmon?

• Should you care if you don't have a YAHOO account?

• Is Google or Ask Jeeves next?

GLENN: Hey, no big deal. Yahoo has confirmed a massive hack that only affected between 200 and 500 million emails.

JEFFY: Eh.

STU: Yeah, I think their first guess was two, and then they were up to four. And then it's 500 million.

GLENN: So it's only half a billion email addresses.

JEFFY: How many emails do you have in your email address?

GLENN: Yeah, so no big deal. No. 200 million users was the first. We're now talking 500 million users affected nationwide. But the good thing is they got -- they got this information out right away. And -- oh, wait. No, this happened in 2012 -- '14. So they -- you know, they --

PAT: Well, it only took them two years.

GLENN: Yeah, they got it out as soon as --

PAT: You know.

GLENN: They believe this was a state that broke in.

PAT: What? Like Alaska?

STU: No. No, Pat. No.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Like Russia.

STU: Yeah, a hacker working on behalf of Russia or China or something.

PAT: Shoot.

STU: Pretty amazing.

PAT: I was scared there for a second. I thought Iowa --

JEFFY: Alaska broke into the Yahoo email?

PAT: Apparently, Iowa, somebody.

GLENN: But the good news is they emailed salmon to me.

STU: It's interesting.

GLENN: Yeah, it was crazy.

PAT: You know, they broke into Yahoo, but I didn't have a Yahoo account so I didn't care.

GLENN: And then they came --

PAT: And then they came to Google.

GLENN: And you didn't have a Google account.

PAT: I didn't have a Google account.

GLENN: Yeah, and didn't care?

PAT: And didn't care?

GLENN: Then they came for GlennBeck.com.

PAT: And I did have a GlennBeck.com.

STU: I think that would be further down the list of hacking.

GLENN: Right. Well, it might be.

JEFFY: It was too late then.

GLENN: Right. So I had an Ask Jeeves account, and I didn't have one. And so --

PAT: Yeah, Lycos, though. You got a Lycos account, right?

GLENN: Lycos, yeah. No, I don't.

JEFFY: If only someone would have stopped Alaska from the very beginning.

PAT: Right. That's what I was saying.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

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?
