Glenn goes to Washington

Pictures from Glenn's trip to DC...

GLENN: So then the President arrives. He is positively robotic. I watch him because, you know, I was seated waaaay off to the side, which I was actually thankful for. I didn't want to be anywhere near the center where it was nothing but NBC and GE employees.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, I don't know if they were the new halogen green lights but they were all lit up and everything. What a bunch of anyway, so I'm off to the side. So I could see the President and the first lady, you know, off to the side of the stage as they're getting ready, and we weren't that far away. I mean, it was probably from here to the other studios away from the President and, yeah, I could see him backstage with the secret service, and he wasn't necessarily smiling. They introduced him, and the minute he hit that light, big smile came on his face, and the minute he stepped out of those lights or they stopped the cameras, the smile went away. He was taking pictures with kids and he's like, Mr. President, you've got to take a picture of the winners and he would smile, and stop. I mean, he was robotic. He was very, very good at his speech. He's an effective speaker, he's a very good speaker. I thought he was funny.

STU: See, I haven't seen him perform the comedy too well, but who

GLENN: I thought he was for a President I thought he did very I thought he did very well.

STU: I thought the funniest part was when Wanda Sykes went into that whole routine about Malia and she just went wrecking the President's daughter and was talking about

GLENN: No, no, she did that to Sarah Palin's daughter. No, it wasn't the President's daughter.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: You might have been confused because remember she did the whole routine on Joe Biden's daughter. You know, that

STU: Ripped her, ripped her.

GLENN: No, no, wait, she didn't. No, no, she did it on Sarah Palin's daughter.

STU: But I thought the funny part was when he was like, you know who I want to just die of kidney failure?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Is Rachel Maddow. I mean, that stupid

GLENN: No, she no, she didn't do that, no, uh uh. She did that on Rush Limbaugh. I tell you, when she did because Todd Palin was there and was sitting at a table behind me.

STU: Classy, classy.

GLENN: Todd Palin came up. He was very nice. He's a normal human being. And I said, Todd, don't destroy this is before. Don't destroy your family, don't destroy your family. Are you guys strong enough as a family to weather this slime? And he said, "I think so. I think so." And I said, just be really careful, man. This is just bad, this is bad stuff here. And he said, "Oh, I know, I know." But he was very optimistic and he was a good guy. And normal, just normal. And when she started in on Sarah Palin and, you know, abstinence, I thought, what are you doing? What are you doing? Is this changing the dialogue in Washington that was so promised? Is that what it is? Because this is a change.

I had a couple that won't be named because there were reporters, but a couple of journalists come up to me afterwards and said, you came on an interesting year. And I said, did I? And he said, yeah, you witnessed a new low and a new standard. He said, never has this happened like this before. Imus had done stuff, but it was again against the President.

STU: Yeah, because that's the tradition.

GLENN: That's the tradition.

STU: You are always wrecking, and even Colbert was but it was wrecking the President. And even though some people thought it went over the line, it was still

GLENN: Kidney failure? Kidney failure? Really?

STU: Well, the thing is, though, it's a comedian and it's not like the President the President wasn't

GLENN: I was thrilled. If you saw because apparently I read a one reporter said that they cut to me and I was stone faced during that. I wasn't laughing. But somebody else, they saw me on C Span and they cut away and I was smiling, leaning over talking to my wife. I was smiling. I said, "These people are so stupid. They've just written my comedy tour."

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: If this is the standard, oh, oh, I can't wait to go on and do comedy on stage. If this is the standard. Wanda Sykes, boy, I mean, I'm torn because I'd love you to be able to stand by my side and defend me when I list the people that I'd like to see get kidney failure.

STU: That would be hilarious. And Barack Obama would be laughing the whole time because he loves those jokes.

GLENN: Well, he might not hear it because I believe Barack Obama may be the 20th hijacker! (Laughing).

STU: Oh, you, oh, you, don't you do oh, my. Oh, my God because you know what? Liberals love when you call Barack Obama a terrorist. They love it!

GLENN: He's the 20th hijacker! He didn't show up because he was too busy embezzling money with ACORN!

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: (Laughing). Oh, man, I hope Wanda Sykes gets kidney has kidney failure. So make sure you join us on our comedy tour, it's our Common Sense comedy tour. Tickets are still available. Be a lot of great jokes happening.

STU: Oh, it's going to be good, it's going to be really good.

Encore performance is happening on June 11th. June 4th we're going to be in over 450 movie theatres nationwide. Make sure you grab your tickets. Our Common Sense comedy tour. Be there. You know, unless you're wishing somebody was having kidney failure.

STU: (Laughing). That's unbelievable, how we were ever in a comedian that doesn't have a TV show anymore.

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.
