GLENN: And then, of course, we have this report from CNN. Listen, listen to this report from CNN. There is an anchor. She is walking up to a guy who's this clean‑cut regular Schmo, standing there with his 2‑year‑old daughter. Now, the people around, you don't have any idea. Like last night when I was doing the television show, I was doing interviews, et cetera, et cetera. You can't hear. And when people are shouting, you know, "USA, USA," it's very, it's difficult to do if you're a professional like me. If you are a nervous per son that's not used to being on television and people are screaming and shouting things all around, it's very hard to be able to have a conversation with somebody because you're very distracted by what's going on, okay? She didn't even give this guy a chance. Listen to the way this interview went.

VOICE: Okay, let's see. You're here with your 2‑year‑old and you're already in debt. Why are you here today, sir?

VOICE: Because I hear a president say that he believed in what Lincoln stood for. Lincoln's primary thing was he believed that people had the right to liberty and had the right ‑‑

VOICE: Sir, what does this have to do with taxes? What does this have to do with your taxes? Do you realize that you are eligible for a $400 credit ‑‑

VOICE: Let me finish my point. Lincoln ‑‑ Lincoln believed that people had the right to share in the fruits of their own labor and that government should not take it, and we have clearly gotten to that point.

VOICE: Wait. Did you know that ‑‑ did you know that the State of Lincoln gets $50 billion out of this stimulus? That's $50 billion for this state, sir.

VOICE: Ma'am. Ma'am, ma'am, I ‑‑ can you stop this, sir? Hold on.

VOICE: Okay, well, we'll move on over here. I think you get the general tenor of this. It's anti‑government, anti‑CNN, since this is highly promoted by the rightwing conservative network Fox. And since I can't really hear much more and I think this is not really family viewing, toss it back to you.

GLENN: This isn't family viewing. I mean, I can't believe this. This isn't family ‑‑ he's standing there with his 2‑year‑old. I mean, what is that? Unbelievable. I would like to take this from the beginning but I want to stop and start this. I want to take this apart. Go ahead.

VOICE: Okay. Let's see. You are here with your 2‑year‑old and you are already in debt. Why are you here, sir?

VOICE: Because I heard the president say he believed in what Lincoln stood for. Link even's primary thing was he believed that people had the right to liberty and had the right ‑‑

VOICE: Sir, what does this have to do with taxes?

GLENN: Stop, stop.

GLENN: This shows the ignorance of this reporter. She doesn't have any clue as to what this man is talking about. What this man is talking about is Abraham Lincoln saying it is immoral to pull down the house of one to build another house for someone else. You can't do that. He thought it was immoral, he thought it was unconstitutional. You do not take the fruits of the labor of one person and give them to someone else. He was very clear. But she didn't even know where he was going with this because she clearly doesn't understand and she's like, well, what does this even have to do with taxes? That was the point of Abraham Lincoln! You cannot take and tear down the house of one to build a house for another. That has everything to do with taxes. That is the point that Abraham Lincoln was trying to make.

STU: What's that got to do with taxes? He's talking about houses. It doesn't make any sense. It's not family‑friendly at all.

GLENN: I know, I know. Well, we're just, what is it, apoplectic brainiacs. So what do we know. Okay. So go ahead. Lynn to what she has in response.

VOICE: Sir, what does this have to do with taxes? What does this have to do with your taxes? Do you realize that you're eligible ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop.

GLENN: Now remember, I'm not a journalist. They always make fun of me: Glenn Beck, he's a pseudojournalist. No, I'm not a journalist. I never claimed to be a journalist. I am an opinion person. Listen to what she did. She moved now clearly not just in the way she was handling everything but by what she just did, from journalist to opinion maker. What she did is she said, "What does this have to do with taxes?" Question, period. What does this have to do with taxes. Well, let me explain: Abraham Lincoln said you can't tear down the house of one person to build another, okay? That's what it has to do with taxes. But she wasn't interested in the actual answer. She wanted to make her point. That's what an opinion maker does, not a journalist. Listen to what she says on her point: What does this have to do with taxes?

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

VOICE: What does this have to do with your taxes? Do you realize that you're he eligible for a $400 credit ‑‑

VOICE: Let me finish my point.

GLENN: Stop, stop.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: Do you realize you're eligible for a $400 tax credit. Okay, she's shilling the DNC talking points. She is selling. She's now moved from opinion maker to saleswoman. She is now selling something that they are again so clueless, they don't understand who we are. We didn't want the eligibility for a tax rebate when Bush gave it to us. We don't want tax breaks. We want lower taxes. We want lower spending. But see, the DNC, CNN, all of these leftwingers, you can buy them. We're not for sale. They are. When you say to somebody, you know, on the left, "Hey, all you have to do is sell out your values and you'll get this in exchange," they'll do it. Some rightwingers will do it as well. The people who gathered on the streets yesterday won't. Their credibility, their Constitution is not for sale. This is why I said you've got to make it about principles and values because she's now trying to sell you on, "Get out, get out." But wait. There's more.

VOICE: Lincoln, Lincoln believed that people had the right to share in the fruits of their own labor and that government should not take it, and we have clearly gotten to that point.

VOICE: Wait, did you know that ‑‑ did you know that the State of Lincoln gets $50 billion out of this stimulus? That's $50 billion for this state, sir.

VOICE: Ma'am. Ma'am, ma'am.

GLENN: I mean, I can't believe it. The only thing she could tie to Lincoln and the State of Illinois and the only reason she could do that is because it's on a license plate. I mean, this woman is amazing to me. "Did you know that it's not only you are eligible for this, but wait, there's more. Now how much would you pay for that Constitution?" It's really, truly incredible. I don't think we need to go all the way to the end of, "It's an anti‑CNN rally." No, it's not. There are a lot of good people there and unfortunately that are too many like this there that have absolute contempt for you, absolute contempt for what you believe, I believe contempt for the American dream as our founders saw it.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
