GLENN: What does this ACORN T‑shirt make you feel and why does it make you feel that way?

CALLER: Well, just, I was very, very surprised when I turned it on this morning and saw you wearing it because they're destroying our country and it just, you know, it breaks my heart.

PAT: You know what Bev needs is a behavioral psychologist.

GLENN: Some sort of behavioral ‑‑

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Hang on just a sec.

PAT: Someone who can sit with her in her living room.

GLENN: Oh, wait, wait, wait, I have one. From Washington representative Brian Baird introduced a bill yesterday, H.R. 3247 that will establish a social and behavioral science research program. What would the program do? It would be set up to identify and understand social and behavioral factors that influence energy consumption to promote the utilization of the results of social and behavioral research to improve the design, development and demonstration and application of energy technologies policies and programs, and it's going to create a director of social and behavioral research.

STU: That would be helpful.

GLENN: Wouldn't that be great?

STU: That would be great for us.

GLENN: Because then we can find out what's going on with Bev and the way we can get Bev to stop with the hatred of ACORN. Just because they're different than you, Bev.

CALLER: See, I don't believe anything I hear out of any of them.

STU: Stop screaming, Bev.

CALLER: I got an e‑mail from someone this morning and it had a newspaper article from Russia.

PAT: Please use your indoor voice, Bev.

CALLER: Oh, I'm sorry. I just get very heated when I talk about it.

GLENN: See, there's the anger we were talking about. I mean, you let these kooks like Bev talk and they immediately hang themselves.

STU: Sounds like a Bev problem.

GLENN: I mean, here she is. All right, go ahead, Bev, tell us about Russia.

CALLER: See, there's a newspaper article in Russia and it's verified by Snopes how they are making fun of the United States, how we're just letting our democracy slip away and not doing a thing about it and that's just ‑‑

GLENN: No, that ‑‑ Bev, can I tell you something?

CALLER: Sure.

GLENN: You know what article I'm talking about? How old is that article, Pat? Do you remember? That was when I was ‑‑ I gave that speech at the capitol, when was that?

PAT: About three months? Three months ago?

GLENN: That's ‑‑ Bev.

CALLER: Oh, that's old news?

GLENN: That's old news.

STU: Tired old arguments of the past.

GLENN: Why are you bringing up the tired old arguments of the past?

CALLER: I'm sorry, that's my mistake.

PAT: We're talking social justice now.

CALLER: See, I guess I'm a former drinker as well. So maybe I should have a beer and I'll feel better about everything.

GLENN: There we are. See, we ‑‑ if we all just have some beers, then it will all start making sense to us.

CALLER: Oh, there you go.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Bev.

CALLER: Thank you, Glenn. Have a good ‑‑

GLENN: You know what? Look, America, you have to learn this lesson. It's going to be very hard to become sane. See, you're insane right now. You're crazy. May I just quote Winston Smith writing in his diary? With the feeling that he was speaking to O'Brien, he was setting forth this axiom. He said freedom is the freedom to say that 2 plus 2 make 4. If that is granted, all else follows. And then later Winston, for his own good was being administered a therapy session and he's crying out and he says, how can I help it? How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? 2 and 2 are 4. And he starts to cry and then the person who's just there to help says, sometimes, with Winston, sometimes they're 5. Sometimes they're 3. Sometimes they're all of them at once. You must try harder. It's not easy to become sane. That's from the book 1984. We don't understand yet, you see. You're insane. Gee, where have I read that about me? Oh, in all of the media, especially any media owned by General Electric. That's weird. General Electric? Why would the media, why would the media arm of General Electric, CNBC, NBC, why would they try to paint me in any other way? Why would they do that? Sure, sure I am a big competitor but, wow, so are you saying that just for money a competitor will try to destroy, just for the small amount of money that GE would make if they took me off of Fox News? Is that enough money to make the system, from all of MSNBC yesterday and then the Today Show and the Tonight Show. What would be their motivation for doing that? Unless maybe GE is just an extension of this administration. Unless GE is just somehow or another a propaganda arm of this government. Only because they can't make a ‑‑ they will make a small amount of money destroying me, but if they're in bed with the federal government and the administration, well, my gosh, they're in aerospace. They can continue to get all these great contracts. They're in green energy. That's fantastic. They're in broadcast you know it's pretty dicey right now if you're in broadcast. Look at all of the great things that they can accomplish for the good of humanity, for the good of the collective. Oh, you know, I've been insane, I guess. I have been insane.

STU: Do you see what's happening here? He's starting to sound like Bev, the caller.

GLENN: No, I'm waking up. That's why I'm wearing the ACORN shirt.

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.
