Glenn Beck: Al-Qaeda on the ropes?

If right-wing extremist John McCain is elected America could lose yet another Hollywood celebrity to the profiteering, oil rich nation of Canada...

GLENN: Susan Sarandon says if John McCain gets elected, she's going to move to Italy or Canada. Maybe I'll move up with her. I mean, Susan Sarandon. John McCain's not even good enough for -- who do you think she's for? She can be for Hillary Clinton. She's got to be -- well, she's got to be a conundrum. She's really between a rock and a hard place because she's such a feminist that she's going to have to admit that she's either racist or sexist. Which do you think she picks, Stu? Is she a sexist or a racist?

STU: Oh, gee. I think she's probably going to be a sexist.

GLENN: I think she's going to be a sexist as well.

STU: You know why? Because you can always -- she's part of the sex. So she can say, well, I'm a woman; of course I'm not sexist.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

STU: She wants to get away from the racist part of it.

GLENN: Well, I can see why she wants to move out, especially with John McCain because the world will be a much more dangerous place with John -- oh, wait a minute. Hang on just a second. The one thing I can give John McCain credit for is he seems to have been right on the Iraq war because as soon as we started doing what he said we should be doing, gosh, casualties are down now this month from last year, down 83%? The CIA has come out today -- I love this one. The CIA director has come out and said not only we scored big gains against Al-Qaeda, they're almost out of business. We've almost put them out of business and we have put them out of business in Iraq. They have left Iraq and decided, they've stopped all recruiting in Iraq. It's just not working there. So I can see, the fighting didn't make it safer, it only made the world more dangerous and we're not getting -- and there's this quagmire, too. Quagmire.

STU: The surge won't work.

GLENN: We should pull our troops out right now. Stu the surge has failed.

GLENN: It has failed?

STU: It has failed.

GLENN: I thought it was getting better.

STU: Well, it's failed for them because they wanted it to get worse.

GLENN: You know what, Stu? You know what it really is? It's not that the surge -- the surge may have worked and casualties may be down 83% year to year but you know what? There hasn't really been any political change there, you know? There's not -- you know, they haven't come up with a political solution at all. The government still failed over there.

STU: So that's where we are now? I just want to make sure I know where the line is.

GLENN: That's where we are now. No, the government has. Forget about in 1791, you know, we're still struggling for our Constitution, you know, back in the 1780s -- 1776, great. Then we put the government together and our government fails until 1791. So don't worry about that. Government, once you change them and fundamentally change them from the core, you just turn the key. It's a turnkey operation. A lot like McDonald's. Countries are like franchises. You set them up, put the menu in front of people, you open up the doors and you're done. Maybe they forgot the playland but instead of putting balls in the playland they put like square cubes and that just didn't -- I'm not sure.

STU: It would seem to me that, what, we're 232 years old at this point? And we're not exactly running perfectly, either. We're still having our own political issues here and there.

GLENN: Uh-uh, no. Well, we are. I was going to say we're having those problems, but France is perfect.

STU: Right, obviously France.

GLENN: Well, France was perfect until a conservative took over. Now France is an abomination. You know, as soon as he started building and forcing them to have 80% of their power from nuclear energy, do you remember when he was elected last year and then he built all of those nuclear power plants and immediately went on 80% nuclear energy?

STU: Actually, no, that's been happening there for a long time.

GLENN: What?

STU: Yeah. They've had that way before Sarkozy.

GLENN: Well, it's not France but it's Italy. Italy is perfect. Italy is perfect. You know, the whole -- I mean, they've got healthcare, you know, right now. And, you know, -- sure, they're finally saying that healthcare's not going to work because illegal immigrants are coming in. But they say, hey, illegal immigrants, hey, they can have that healthcare for free, too, because we're not racist and hate mongers like --

STU: No, that's not what's happening.

GLENN: They are taking it away from illegal immigrants?

STU: Yeah, they're not allowed to --

GLENN: Even if they are going to emergency rooms, they can't get healthcare for free?

STU: You are not --

GLENN: Over in enlightened Europe?

STU: -- describing the policy differently. It's totally different.

GLENN: Well, I'm with Susan Sarandon. I think we move to Italy or Canada, if John McCain wins.

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.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
