GLENN: We have a guy named Roly on the phone. And Roly, is that your real name?

CALLER: Sorry?

GLENN: Is that your real name, Roly?

CALLER: Yeah, it's Roly.

GLENN: Okay, Roly, what's your last name?

CALLER: Roly (inaudible). That's why I keep it short.

GLENN: Now, Roly, here's the thing. You sent me a tweet, what was this, last week?

CALLER: Yeah, about four days, five days ago.

GLENN: And people ask me all the time, do you actually read the tweets? Yes, I read as many as I possibly can. And actually I read most of them and then I also get I have researchers looking for tips from all of the people that are tweeting. So if you are tweeting a story to me, a researcher looks at that absolutely and usually I'm the first one to see them. But you sent a song to me and I was laying in bed with my wife and we were just kind of laughing at some of the tweets. We don't I mean, there's a lot of laughing that happens in my bedroom but that's a different story. And you sent a song that you had done and I want to play just a little bit of it. Now, you've got to understand, America, that this is something that he did, you know, and recorded it on the Internet and then sent it to me. But here's a little clip of it.

VOICE: Sharp teeth and greedy grins, knock knock, is there anybody in? Either I'm a fool or you've got no answers. I press my voice against a megaphone. I want the truth and I know that I'm not alone. But no one is home, only cotton candy coated TVs. Some give you truth that's nice and sweet. Some give you truth that's caffeine free. Some give you pills that paralyze so you don't open up your eyes. I don't need no thought control. My tired ears are bruised and sore. The only thing my eyes can see are seven fathers on a lonely road.

GLENN: I want to make sure the seven fathers on the road, they are not like Satan, Stalin, Lenin, the seven explain the seven fathers.

CALLER: Seven fathers? Ben Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, James Madison, John J, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton. It's said to be a lot more than them, but those are the original seven.

GLENN: I love this song. I think this is absolutely fantastic. I want to introduce somebody who else, somebody else who is on the phone that I sent this song to this morning. Eric Chase, are you there?

CHASE: Yeah, I'm here.

GLENN: Okay. Roly, I don't know if you've ever heard of Eric Chase but Eric is part of my company. We have a sound design company through Eric and Eric is a guy who Lucas Sound I believe has actually approached you, Eric, and tried to get you to go to Lucas Sound. He is one of the best sound designers, one of the best producers in the country and I mean, I think anybody who has ever heard of Eric or heard of his talent, people line up to intern for this guy. And what I'd like to do is send you to his studio because he has a studio down in Florida. You are in Florida, right, Roly?

CALLER: Yeah, I'm in South Florida, Miami right now.

GLENN: Would you mind, what you'd like to do is have Eric produce this and really do this song right, have you sing it and play it and everything else but he can help do it with your permission and I'd like to see if we could get this to be a hit because I think this is an absolute hit.

CALLER: Yeah, and I would be very flattered if that happened.

GLENN: Okay. So are you cool with that, Eric? You heard the song

CHASE: It's a great song. I think it could be very powerful, you know, both in terms of the song and of the lyrics and also it could be kind of Sonically powerful in a very, you know, in a kind of a rocking fall out boyish kind of mode, you know. I mean, a lot of people in famous band or whatever, they just kind of go through the motions and even though they sing about love or they sing about whatever the case may be, they don't really sound like they're feeling what they are singing. I mean, and I think it's important in our generation that we connect with the youth.

GLENN: How old are you? How old are you?

CALLER: I'm 30 years old.

GLENN: You are 30 years old? You don't look 30 years old on YouTube. It's absolutely fantastic. And you are exactly right that we do. And if I may just say, dawg, a little pitchy in parts. But I think this is a hit and I think if we don't connect with the youth, we're in deep trouble, in deep trouble.

Paula?

PAT (Paula voice): I like his stage presence. I thought he was his eyes looked a little Sullen but I like that look because it adds a little grungy feel to it. You're wonderful.

GLENN: Good.

PAT (Paula voice): I'd also like to date you.

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT (Paula voice): Is it possible?

GLENN: All right. Roly, it's or Roly, it's great. Now, wait a minute. There was something else. Stu told me about today. I haven't heard this yet. Stu told me about that you did a song with the listeners? What is this?

CALLER: So listen. Four years ago I wrote the song, I sent it to you, you posted a link on your Twitter account and then all of a sudden later here I am with 7,000 hits on the page and everybody's leaving these beautiful comments on YouTube. So I was mentioning to them live on Rolyomusic.com. I would like to thank you but I didn't know how to do it and they are like, well, let's come up with a creative way; you can write a song. And I go, I'll write a song if you guys help me write it. So I had a few people e mail me lyrics and then I would take lyrics from everybody's e mail and piece it together and to make the

GLENN: We'll play a little bit of we'll play a little bit of that next. Stand by.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
