President & Executive Director of ConSource

GLENN: Is that what it is? They are on sale now, bitter white man T-shirts at GlennBeck.com. Also, while you're there I'm asking you to buy Fusion magazine. And normally I don't make a hard sell on Fusion magazine. I just tell you what's in the upcoming issue but I would really like you to be a subscriber to Fusion magazine and it is a great, great issue. We have been working longer on this issue of Fusion magazine than anything else. I'm not kidding you. I was in the hospital at 3:00 in the morning. The deadline for the final adjustment was supposed to be the next morning. I'm there in the hospital at 3:00 in the morning with Joe and his laptop and we were still working on it. The doctor said, you can't work in the emergency room. I'm like, we have a deadline, I have a deadline I have to have. So we postponed the deadline for a couple of days, doctors orders. But the reason why I was doing that is because this is such a critical issue. This is our comparing John McCain and Barack Obama's policies to the words of the founding fathers, and Lorianne Updike is on phone. She is from the constitutional sources project and Lorianne, you guys have been instrumental in helping us put this together, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it and how great your service is. Tell me a little bit about what you guys do.

UPDIKE: Well, Glenn, we've created the first free fully annexed online library of constitutional sources. Essentially right now it's the founders' documents and how they relate to the Constitution. And we've done this so that everybody from the sixth grader to the Supreme Court justice can have access to our founders.

GLENN: Okay. And the amazing thing is if you are looking for -- because you can read and study the Constitution, you know, all you want but when you put it into context and you see the writings and the words of our founding fathers and what got them to write the actual words in the Constitution, it takes on a whole different flavor, doesn't it?

UPDIKE: That's right. You begin to see history unfolding before your eyes.

GLENN: So how do people use your service?

UPDIKE: Well, it's free. You go to www.consource.org. Anybody can get on. There's a couple of ways to get on. We've, of course, got a Google search. We've put things into collection for historians and we actually have a legal index for attorneys and those interested in making policy so that they can see every single clause of the Constitution and the documents that relate to it. Of course, you know, we have certain number of documents on the site and that's always growing.

GLENN: And your goal is to have everything the founding fathers ever did electronically available.

UPDIKE: Well, Glenn, it's not just the founding fathers. We're starting with article 1 and going all the way to amendment 27 which was passed in 1922. So our goal is to have all of the forces of the Constitution, reconstruction era amendments, you know, women's lib, right to vote, prohibition. But we also are starting to go back to antiquity. Some of our newest documents on this site are our constitutional precedents, things like the magna cart a, the may flower compact, the Articles of Confederation -- excuse me, the --

GLENN: Confederation?

UPDIKE: Confederation. One of the newest collections we're adding are drafts of the Constitution. Most people don't know but there was an internal publication of the Constitution on August 6th of 1787 during the Constitutional Convention and all of the delegates to the Constitution got drafts that they wrote their own notes on. There's one at the Library of Congress that Washington's written his own notes and the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia has Benjamin Franklin's and that's one of the reason why I think some of the importantness of this day and age of the Internet and Web 2.0 is that these things are everywhere. We found articles and manuscripts in Europe. There's hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of archives that have these documents and sometimes they're in attics. So it's only online that they can all be collected into one place.

GLENN: That's fantastic. Well, I so appreciate it, Lorianne. And you guys are actually writing kind of a summary of what each of these issues are for Fusion magazine, correct?

UPDIKE: That's correct, yes.

GLENN: And I can't tell you how much your staff and everybody involved in this month's Fusion has helped us out and how much it means to us and I think it really will make a difference and I thank you so much for it.

UPDIKE: Well, you're welcome. It's so wonderful to hear when I talk to your staff that they had already found consource on their own and it had been helpful.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:


Glenn and Justin’s new book, ‘The Great Reset: Joe Biden And The Rise Of 21st Century Fascism’ is available to order now.
