GLENN: Everything science, it's incredible. Meanwhile those conservatives just want to, you know, just beat science to death. Oh, science, it's such a nuisance. Anyway, apparently there's some sort of green machismo that is going on now that's some sort of a pride contest going on between residents in major cities over who has the greenest city. From the New York Times, the green blog, which is my favorite blog. Stu, have you read the green blog?

STU: All the time, Glenn.

GLENN: Oh, it's so great. Quote: I visited some friends in Oakland this weekend and I was impressed when they instructed me to dump my coffee grounds into a composting bin for the city to collect. That's greener than in New York, where the remains of my morning brew get scrapped with the trash. I wonder if you took a green jet to go visit his friends in Oakland. Oakland and New York. Right there on the cutting edge of green. When I think of clean and green, don't you think Oakland, California and New York City? Well, I do. New York obviously is so green. I mean, we're getting rid of our trash so much that it actually smells like trash all the time, and it's fantastic. But even Oakland, who is so green that they are composting coffee grounds, it looks like a coal plant when compared with Toronto. Toronto composts not just food scraps, yard trimmings and paper napkins like Oakland but also they've gone the extra step of dirty diapers, a nonstop source of waste for many families. Well, what to do with all the dirty diapers. Man, I bet Toronto smells great, especially this time of year. Toronto collects all of the dirty diapers.

May I just say there's a job that an American just won't do? I mean, I don't know how much you have to pay me to be the dirty diaper collector, but what they do is they take that and then they distribute them to farmland and parks. That's right. Canada's parks are full of dirty diapers. I mean, not just the parks but also the farmlands. Here's what it is. Canada's babies and toddlers are helping Canadian crops grow. Man, I wish I had some Canadian bacon right now. If you have some concern, and I mean, you know, it's crazy but just in case you happen to be concerned about, you know, taking baby crap and putting it all over your food crops, don't worry. It's a green program so you'll feel good about the baby crap all over your tomatoes. The Toronto program provides assurances that the process is completely sanitary and safe. And I know. I mean, I get it. You know, we do that with, you know, animal I mean, you know, that's what manure is. I mean, but still, who's scraping it out of the diaper? By the way, don't even think of spending an extra second thinking about this one. Just toss the diaper into the green bin and impress all of your green friends that your city is the only one that uses crap diapers to grow their food. I mean, do that. Oakland, they got coffee grounds. Really? Hey, you watch. When my youngest pushes a load out, we are going to be eating like kings by tonight.

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.
