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?

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.

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.

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.
