So, What Can You Actually Do About the Deep State?

Continuing this week’s chalkboard series about the Deep State, (find clips from earlier episodes here, here, and here,) Glenn kicked off today’s episode by addressing the belief that — if there really is a deep state here in America — there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.

“I mean, if the president and congress can’t do anything to stand up to the Deep State, how can the average citizen hope to be able to stop it?” said Glenn. “Well, this is actually true in countries like Turkey that have a ‘monolithic deep state,’ but that’s not the kind of state we have here. We have a bureaucratic deep state. So the good news is, we do have the power to change all this, but it’s going to be hard.”

So, what can you do about the Deep State?

In this short clip from the full episode, Glenn took to the chalkboard to explain the three main things to push for in order to stop the overgrown bureaucratic machine we call deep state:

    1. Limit secrecy and encourage transparency
    2. Re-focus the media
    3. Scale back the bureaucracy

Limit secrecy

Foreseeing the growing threat of an out-of-control bureaucracy, President John F. Kennedy gave a speech to the American Newspaper Publishing Association in 1961. He made two important points:

The first warned against the dangers of secrecy within the government:

“We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.” ~ John F. Kennedy. 1961

The second was a call to re-focus the media:

“Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed and no republic can survive … and that is why our press was protected by the First Amendment — the only business in America specifically protected by the Constitution — not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the sentimental, not simply to give the public what it wants — but to inform, to arouse, to reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities. To indicate our crises and our choices, to lead, mold, educate and sometimes to anger public opinion.” ~ John F. Kennedy. 1961

“Can you imagine a president saying that today?” asked Glenn, “He was actually challenging the media to call him out on his mistakes …. Wow, that is the job of the media, right?”

But the media doesn’t seem to have been doing their job in recent years — at least not according to public opinion. According to a recent Gallup poll, only 32 percent of today’s Americans say they trust the media. This is an all-time low in Gallup polling history.

“Without a media, how do we get answers? Who do we trust?” Glenn asked. “We must demand more from the media.”

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
