Glenn Beck: Does Congress read before voting?

GLENN: We're going to have to make sacrifices and choices now and so it's going to test the bands of social cohesion. We are in headed for trouble, but there's all kinds of and tonight on television I'm going this segment tonight on just the vice, the vice that is going to start squeezing all Americans, not left or right, all Americans. And so the pot is going to start to boil. It's going to get hotter and hotter and hotter and tensions are going to get rise higher and higher and higher. Got it? That's just the way it's going to be. One of those people in the vice is what's actually in this bill, what they've actually done. Here's one of them and Pat has the audio vault and explain set this up.

PAT: A reporter, a young guy walked into the halls of Congress, into the Capitol, and was walking down the hallway with Alan Grayson and was just introducing himself and being very friendly and talking about the health care bill and congratulating him on having such a big part of its passage. So, Grayson is warming up to him and starts to ask him about his favorite parts of the bill and the reporter asked Grayson what he liked best about it and Grayson starts telling him. And then he says, Well, what about these other provisions that are in the bill?



Why would Alan Grayson want to give your money over to Native American child molesters?

VOICE: What about the House, the house portion that provides funding for Native American child molesters and the Senate portion that provides

VOICE: (Inaudible.)

VOICE: that mandates no. This is the bill.

VOICE: It doesn't sound like it.

VOICE: This is in your bill that you voted for.

VOICE: Okay. Have a nice day.

VOICE: 1950 provides funding for Native American is this not in your bill? Do you not know what's in your own bill that you voted for?

GLENN: That is so great.

PAT: And then there's

VOICE: the Senate bill that says employers must mandate a break time for breast feeding. This is also in your bill.

VOICE: Get a life. What about getting a life?

GLENN: You're a Congressman, sir. Your life is to represent the people, not the Native American child molesters.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: And you notice they don't respond. They never do.

PAT: No.

GLENN: They never do.

PAT: And you notice was the response was, when he told him about the provision that is in the bill

GLENN: What? Are you crazy?

PAT: Are you a kook? Are you a kook for voting for this thing? I didn't put in it there. I didn't vote for it. You did.

GLENN: Can you that's video, right?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Not just audio?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Could you send that over to TV so we could show that video tonight? And let's put that in the free e mail newsletter today.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because that is the kind of stuff you need. That shows you a couple of things. One, the kind of pressure that is coming your way, because look what's in the bill. Look what's in the bill. Two, look at what they've done. They don't even know what's in the bill.

PAT: No. Of course they don't.

GLENN: They didn't read it.

PAT: They have no idea.

GLENN: And why is it bad to now ask the questions of what's in the bill, because that's what we were told by Nancy Pelosi, you have to wait until the fog clears, we have to pass it and then you'll see what's in the bill. Okay. So, now we're seeing it. You still don't want to answer questions about it? We're seeing it now.

And then the last thing you have to learn about this is: What have they done? As soon as you do ask, because that's what Nancy Pelosi told us to do, Wait until it's passed and then you'll be able to see it. We see it, we read it, and then we ask and they call us a kook! I mean, I never you know, I never related and I still don't think we can relate, but I could never relate to the founders on the Declaration of Independence, on that big, long list where they said, We've tried and we've tried and we've tried and we've tried, we've begged you, we've begged you, we've told you, please don't do this. Then we appealed to the British people and said, Please. That's the only thing that we haven't done yet, I guess, is appeal to the good Democrats. I have, but we haven't appealed to the good Democrats and say, Help us, please, help us. Help us. You love the country as much as we do. You're not in with these radicals. You're not come on. You are not for giving money for child molesters in Native American communities. You're not for that! Help us, please, please.

And I have a great faith, because I've seen it, I've seen it, and that's why they have to paint us as violent, because they cannot let anybody on the left peel off. They can't let anybody from the Democrats peel off and come over here. They've got to pulverize their base, they've got to make us into haters and racists, because you've seen it. I have friends, I have strong democratic friends who have said, Glenn, I can't do it anymore. I can't do it. I mean, I have I don't want to give names. Hang on just a second.

Okay. Do you know who she is?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. I just said to Pat the name of the person I'm talking about. Could you meet a stauncher liberal?

PAT: I don't think so.

Glenn: Okay.

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: This is a woman who, I mean, makes my head explode.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Her husband came in this week and said, Glenn, I just want you to know, she can't do it anymore. She can't do it anymore. The lies, the corruption, what they're doing, she's not with it. That's incredible. That is incredible. When you have people who are lifelong Democrats and liberals who say, I can't stand with these people, we must reach out to those people, we must find our way to those people. We must find our way to the reasonable Democrats. It cannot be about politics. It must be about values and principles. It must be about honor an integrity. It must be about those things, and that's the exact opposite direction of where they're going. Where they were campaigning and they wanted to make it about hope, now they're making it about fear. That is a losing hand. In the end it is a losing hand, but if God is with us, who could stand against us? Churches, boy, oh, boy, do we need you. Boy, does America need churches. Our faiths must come together, they must come together. We need a Christian coalition, but I think and I don't speak for Christians, by any stretch of the imagination, but I think the Christian coalition was used by politics and politicians. I think the Christian coalition, the problem with that thing is it became about politics and about a party. This has to be about principles. We need a Christian coalition that is about principles and not parties. We must come together again. We must. We must come together as neighbors and friends and Americans and put our parties last and our principles first.

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.
