Glenn Beck: Surprised Massachusetts Race Is Close?





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel

All eyes are on Massachusetts for the big election Tuesday. Who's going to fill Ted Kennedy's Senate seat? Oh, the suspense!

Everyone in the media seems shocked that a Republican is on the verge of winning in Massachusetts. It's weird — I mean, "Republican from Massachusetts" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. But not only are they shocked, but the media is horrified at the prospects of a Republican winning there:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

AMY ROBACH, 'THE TODAY SHOW': All right, well, we want to talk about a crisis potentially looming here at home. Massachusetts, the president is making a last-minute trip to Boston tomorrow to campaign for Democrat Martha Coakley.

DAVID SHUSTER, MSNBC: Has Democratic-leaning Massachusetts lost its mind?

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, MSNBC: With just four days to go in the race for Teddy Kennedy's Senate seat, a new poll is terrible news for Democrats. The 60th vote in the Senate; maybe health care hanging in the balance. Chuck, I'm interested now. NBCs deputy political director, Mark Murray, joins us now. This is bad.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

The media may be surprised, but I'm not. Because I think the days where people just vote Democrat or Republican no matter what are seeing the beginning of the end. For so long we've bought into the Republicans and Democrats' game; identified ourselves as one or the other, and put that label ahead of a much more important one: American.

Progressives have put their agenda into hyper-drive and it's so crystal clear that their final goal is anything but American:

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE BARACK OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

Both Republican and Democratic voters have snapped out of that slumber. Because if there is one thing that can unite people of all political persuasions, it's that we do not want to be like France. Even Michael Moore agrees with that.

It's an insult to the people of Massachusetts to react with shock because they put some actual thought into their vote. Maybe they are discovering who Martha Coakley is?

Just last week, a journalist was pushed to the ground while trying to ask her a question. Whether or not it was on purpose, who knows? But Coakley's response was telling. She claimed: "I'm not sure what happened. I know something occurred, but I'm not privy to the facts."

But she apparently knew enough "facts" to say that "Republican stalkers" caused it. Unfortunately for Coakley, one of those pesky photographers caught a photo of Coakley watching the incident take place.

Oops.

When talking about Catholics, Coakley said this:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

MARTHA COAKLEY, CANDIDATE FOR U.S. SENATE: You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn't work in the emergency room.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Coakley is yet another politician who made an "honest mistake" on finances. On her financial disclosures for her senate run, she claimed to have no personal assets. Turns out she was off by over $200,000 — oops.

And then there was Coakley's involvement in the Fells Acres Day Care Center preschool trial — a case that garnered national attention. Three daycare workers were convicted on very weak accusations of child abuse. Even when judges overturned convictions and the governor's board of pardons and paroles unanimously voted to commute Gerald Amirault, Coakley stuck by the story despite the lack of evidence. She's trying to look tough on crime.

But, there's one more: Coakley is the attorney general, the head law enforcement figure in the state. And not only does she fail to get the support of the State Police Association of Massachusetts and several police unions, she fails to get the support of the Cambridge Police Patrol Officers Union — her husband, is a retired Cambridge police officer. I mean, is her husband going to vote for her?

It's amazing the race is even close considering how bad of a candidate she is. Public Policy Polling has her trailing Scott Brown by a 51-46 percent margin. Suffolk has it at 50-46 percent — this is within the margin of error. With the progressives' dream of mandated health care possibly on the line, you can only imagine how ugly this thing will get if it's — God help us all — "too close to call." Coakley supporters have friends in high places.

If it's close enough for a recount, I don't want to see some idiot looking at a hanging chad trying to figure out the intent of the voter. I think that was the first time America was clued in to the fact our voting system had serious problems.

I was there in Florida during that re-count debacle in 2000 and I was in favor recounting the whole state. But Democrats thought that by cherry picking certain areas, by manipulating the system, they would have a better chance winning. Of course, that backfired and by all accounts if Democrats would have recounted the entire state, Gore would have pulled it out.

The loss was their own fault; they were so incompetent, they didn't even know how to cheat. But mention the 2000 election to someone on the left and it's still: "George W. Bush stole the election!"

Do you know who this is?

Of course you do: She was Florida's Republican secretary of state, Katherine Harris, who certified presidential theft! She committed a crime against American democracy! Even John Stewart parodied Harris:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JON STEWART, 'THE DAILY SHOW': Katherine Harris made it official by signing the certification papers. Then she passed the papers on to a second commissioner. Finally, they got the ultimate seal of approval signature from Lobster Boy.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

She was on "SNL" all the time.

Now, let me ask you: Do you recognize this face?

Of course you don't. Because Democrats don't consider it a crime against democracy when they win — like Al Franken's Minnesota senate race. He's Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie; an ACORN-supported guy — handpicked by the George Soros funded SOS Project. SOS is designed specifically to have control of the power in close elections. Lesson learned, apparently.

So if it's close in Massachusetts, William Francis Galvin will "decide" the election. But don't plan on seeing him called stupid or parodied on "SNL." Even thought Galvin has said that if Scott Brown wins, it will take "a while" to certify him. That's weird, because in 2007, as the Boston Herald points out, Representative Niki Tsongas was sworn in at the U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 18, 2007 — just two days after winning a special election.

I don't believe, as an American, regular Democrats or Republicans steal elections. But progressives do. It's practically a bylaw in any of their many manifestos.

Over the weekend, Ed Schultz said this:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

ED SCHULTZ, 'THE ED SCHULTZ SHOW': I tell you what, if I lived in Massachusetts I'd try to vote 10 times. I don't know if they'd let me or not, but I'd try to. Yeah, that's right. I'd cheat to keep these bastards out. I would.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Of course he would. His partner in crime also longed for some good old-fashioned cheating:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC: You know in the old days, maybe I shouldn't be harkening back to the old days, if the Democrats faced this kind of a disaster in the works, you'd go back to your ones, the people you were sure are going to vote Democrat, and you'd make sure they got to the polling place, you'd get them lunch, you'd get them a car. You'd make sure they got there.

And in some cases you'd be buying people to get them, not officially buying them, but getting them there as block secretaries, as block captains, you'd be getting them there with street money, legitimate but it's a little bit old school.

But I hear, talking to somebody, today there aren't people up there in Massachusetts like that anymore. There aren't those automatic Democrat votes out there, those ones anymore.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Oh, the horror! You mean they can't buy votes in Massachusetts anymore? What's next: ACORN won't allow underage prostitution?

It doesn't matter to them because they've been told it's OK by people like Saul Alinsky, a hero to the extreme left. How do I know he's a hero?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MATTHEWS: Well to reach back to one of our heroes from the past, from the '60s, Saul Alinsky...

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Saul Alinsky is the "ends justify the means" guy. Do what it takes, no matter what. And here's the most important thing to understand: It's not just about elections. It's about all of it:

• Steal $2.3 million from banks like Robert Creamer did? Hey, if you were spreading that wealth around to the poor then it's OK

• Health care reform: Behind closed doors, shady deals, bribing politicians, bankrupting America? Just get it done

• And remember those whale protestors who actually attacked and rammed into a Japanese whaling ship? (ADD moment, your honor: Whales? I mean, they're great and everything, but when you are risking life and limb to stop someone from catching a whale — wow. Who's daddy didn't love them?) Anyway, the boat that sunk the Japanese ship is from Paul Watson's organization.

Watson's a great guy — a progressive. He's the guy who was featured in that "Whale Wars" reality show, where he routinely resorts to physical violence against humans to save an animal. He has reportedly said that if you don't know an answer, a fact, a statistic, then... make it up on the spot. And "there's nothing wrong with being a terrorist, as long as you win. Then you write the history."

Attacking a civilian boat, ramming a bill through, voting 10 times in Massachusetts — they can spin it in the history books. They saved the whales. They achieved health care for all. They fundamentally transformed America.

Americans are starting to wake up to it, even Democrats — even Democrats in Kennedyville. They know something isn't right. And that something is the uber-left. The Van Jones, communist-loving radicals. The Chairman Mao admirers in the White House, like the Ron Blooms of the world, who says he agrees with Mao about power coming from the barrel of a gun.

I don't believe the majority of Americans think like these people do. But they don't care. If you don't believe these radicals think they are superior to you, that they will run you over if you get in the way of their do-gooding for greater good, then you don't understand history.

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.
