GLENN: People are beginning to see, wait a minute, this is congress, this is Washington. You need to wake people up with the facts. And, you know, there's one thing that we're doing in Fusion Magazine, I think it's next month. Subscribe to Fusion Magazine. We have worked longer on this issue, the July issue of Fusion Magazine, than any other issue we've ever done. It is all on the founding fathers and it's our voters guide and it has remember, I'm not for Barack Obama and I'm not for John McCain. I'm for America. So it is right down the middle. And we took their positions and then we compared them to the positions of our founding fathers and of Karl Marx. The question is, where are you? Are you closer to John McCain, Barack Obama, Karl Marx or the founding fathers? It is eye opening when you see how far both of these guys are from our founding fathers, and it is eye opening, I'll bet you, for 90% of the American population. When they read this, they will agree with the founding fathers and they will see how close our politicians are to Karl Marx and how far away they are from the founding fathers. It is staggering to see the actual opinions side by side. That's what we've done in next month's Fusion Magazine. You can subscribe now at 888 Glenn Beck or you can go online at GlennBeck.com. Right there on the front page you'll see the founding fathers holding court against Barack Obama and John McCain. Click on that and sign up for it. I think we're going to make this this issue is going to be absolutely this is a must have. If you've never wanted an issue of Fusion Magazine, this one is worth the price of the subscription. Like I said, we have worked on this one longer, about six months longer than any other issue we have done to get it right and it is I don't even think that I at least I haven't yet, I haven't written anything for this one except for the open to set the pace because and it's the only one that doesn't have my face on the cover because I don't want people to look at it and go, oh, well, it's Glenn Beck, it's propaganda. Because I had one of our biggest liberals, Liz Julis, she has been with me step by step and we've had the conversation over and over again. She looked at me and she said, okay, I want to show you this, what we've done, but remember this doesn't slant one way or another. And I said, that's fine. There is stuff in the founding fathers that they say, that disagree with my position on things. I don't want something that just regurgitates my position. I want the actual position of the founding fathers and you decide why you disagree and where you disagree or why you agree. Know our history and then spread the word. That is in Fusion Magazine. You can find it now at GlennBeck.com. It comes out next month in just a couple you know what, and it makes a great Father's Day gift as well.

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.
