GLENN: Now, I want you to hear this audio. This is a mother crying about her son

PAT: Two of them. Two of them.

GLENN: It's sad. Now it's a double whammy. Now it's twice as sad.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Two children that did not have access to broadband. Here it is.

LOCKLEAR: My name is Rhonda Locklear. I'm from Pembroke, and I'm a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

PAT: Did you get that? She's a member of the Lumbee tribe of North Carolina.

GLENN: I love the Lumbee tribe.

LOCKLEAR: I have two children and like any mother, I want the best for my boys.

PAT: Like any mother.

GLENN: Don't make fun of her.

PAT: I'm sorry.

LOCKLEAR: Jacob, my oldest, is a transfer student to UNC Pembroke and Isaac is in the eighth grade at Pembroke middle school. Like most families across the state who either don't have access to high speed Internet or who can't afford it, we were stuck with dial up service.

GLENN: Oh, no! Stop it!

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: No, no!

PAT: Stuck with this, until just two months ago!

GLENN: No, I won't

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear.

PAT: Dial up!

GLENN: I will not hear of

PAT: In this country!

GLENN: In the richest country in the world!

PAT: Best, neatest, most amazing, not the best but the

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: Neatest?

GLENN: No, one that has made so many terrible mistakes.

PAT: Mostly crappy, technologically superior, though.

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: Not superior?

GLENN: Not superior.

PAT: To anyone wet.

GLENN: Only superior because we rape the rest of the world.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: But we don't we have somebody that has dial up. Hang on. It gets worse.

PAT: In this country.

GLENN: No, it goes no, listen.

PAT: Hang on.

LOCKLEAR: I feel that this has put my family, my sons in particular

PAT: Get this.

LOCKLEAR: at a severe disadvantage.

STU: No, no.

LOCKLEAR: Isaac depends on the Internet to complete his assignments for school. He often uses the internet to work on reports or often at times to just do research.

STU: Research, that's it!

LOCKLEAR: I watch him struggle with the dial up service and observed him get frustrated.

GLENN: Stop, stop! I watch him struggle with the dial up service!

PAT: As he tries to download the pages. Come on!

GLENN: I can't... take it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: Can I tell you something?

GLENN: Where is my grandfather?

PAT: You and I were together when we struggled with the pages downloading when we had 14.4 modem? Remember that?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: (Making staticy noises). And at that radio station, I think AOL was about the only thing going and you would start loading a page and you'd leave and you'd come back in 15 minutes when it's done.

GLENN: Now imagine, imagine trying to do

PAT: Imagine it now trying to do a project.

GLENN: Why are you making fun of her?

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm not.

GLENN: Yes, you are.

PAT: I'm trying to empathize with her. I can't even empathize.

STU: I can't even tell when it's the audio or when it's him, it's so

GLENN: I'm trying to just wonder where our grandparents went to. Did where our grandparents go?

STU: Well, they had DSL.

GLENN: No, no. No, no.

PAT: We're in library deserts now.

STU: At T3.

GLENN: I mean where did our grandparents go and they left us without a boot in the ass. Because there's a few people that need some of those boots in their ass. And you know what? Quite honestly she may be one of them.

PAT: May? I'm sorry. Did I hear the word "May" come out of your mouth?

GLENN: I mean, can you imagine? Can you imagine if you would have gone at least maybe my grandfather was different. If I would have gone to my grandfather and said, grandpa, I'm just struggling with this dial up service.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: He would have said

PAT: A guy who grew up in the Depression.

GLENN: "Get the hell away from me and go do your homework." That's what he would have said.

PAT: Pick up an encyclopedia. There are things called books.

GLENN: How about a library? I don't know how far she is from a library but how about a library?

PAT: She might be in a library desert.

STU: Or an Internet cafe desert.

PAT: Right.

STU: She could easily in an Internet cafe and you are making fun of her.

PAT: She could easily be in an Internet cafe desert.

GLENN: I don't think any of this is necessary.

PAT: You want to hear the rest?

GLENN: Yes, go ahead.

PAT: It's good. It will get even more horrific.

LOCKLEAR: Because he cannot move around on the Web like he likes.

GLENN: No, not like he likes.

STU: He likes to go around on the Web quickly and he could not do that.

PAT: He could not surf the porn sites that he likes to surf.

LOCKLEAR: Seemingly easy assignments took him hours to complete.

GLENN: Hours.

STU: Pictures of Megan Fox took him hours to download.

PAT: One naked lady took him an hour and a half to have it load on the Web.

GLENN: I don't think this is necessary.

LOCKLEAR: It is hard to watch. Isaac got very upset.

PAT: When all he could see was her forehead.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

PAT: And he was waiting and waiting for the chestal area to appear.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: And it took hours at a time for that Web to download it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: I wept as I watched him try to drool as those pictures would not load onto that page. I love it when people can make

GLENN: Do not, please

PAT: five syllables out of a monosyllabic work.

GLENN: Do not encourage him. This is not helpful.

STU: You are right. I'm sorry.

GLENN: I'm putting it

PAT: Once it started loading her feet from the bottom up and he waited four and a half days until the knees appeared. By the time it got to her hips, he realized she was in a miniskirt and he was so upset, he wept as I did as well.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."

Dr. Anthony Fauci's arrogance is out of control and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is one of the only members of Congress calling him out to his face. Last week, Glenn Beck exposed the truth about what happened leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic, who the top players in government and science were, and what their real response was in the first days of the pandemic during a live special, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie." Sen. Paul joined Glenn on the radio program to review some of the facts uncovered during the special and to explain his next steps moving forward in Congress.

Paul said it's "amazing" that so few on the opposite side of the political aisle seem to care about the dangers gain-of-function research poses to the world. COVID-19 has a 1% mortality rate yet it still managed to cause massive destruction around the world, he said. So, what if the next mistake results in a leaked virus with a 50% mortality rate? Because scientists are researching viruses as dangerous as that, Sen. Paul explained, and some — including Fauci — believe the risks are worth it.

"It is kind of amazing, particularly that no one from the opposite side of the aisle seems to care at all about the dangerousness of this virus and that it might have come from a lab, and in all likelihood did come from a lab," Paul said. "Not one Democrat is curious at all. You know, you would think that Democrats have at least some sensibilities about the danger of things. They tend to be the ones who want to regulate away the things that could be dangerous in the workplace. Yet they don't seem to care about something that could kill millions and likely did kill millions of people. This virus has a 1% mortality and killed 5 million people so far, around the world. Can you imagine if the next one that comes out of the lab has 15% or 50% mortality? And they are doing experiments, as we speak, with viruses that have 50% mortality, and Fauci seems to have no problem with this. He says we weigh the risks verses the benefits of the research, and he comes down on the side that the risks are worth it."

"All of humanity could be wiped out if they make [another] tragic error," Glenn responded. "This is not something that the elites should be the ones making the decision. We should all be involved in these decisions. There's no bigger decision to make than, 'should we be playing around with things that don't exist necessarily in nature that have jumped to humans?' Should we be playing around with these things, making [dangerous viruses], so in case it jumps to humans, we can kill it with a vaccine? This is insanity. Insanity. Especially with arrogance coupled to it."

Sen. Paul went on to point out the additional dangers of allowing any one person to have too much authority, particularly, as in the case of Dr. Fauci, a person with casual disregard for both science and individual liberty.

"Fauci not only has a casual disregard for science, but also for individual liberty. You combine the two — ignoring the science, and then having no regard at all for individual liberty — and you have a really dangerous situation. But it's also dangerous because we've centralized the authority," Paul explained.

"Look, I have opinions on where the virus came from. I have opinions on how to treat it. But they're my opinions, you don't have to take them. If you agree with me, you can listen to my opinions. With Dr. Fauci, it's not the same. He has opinions, but he wants you to be forced to do as he says. So it is the difference between coercion and freedom. And in freedom, there are many choices. But the real danger is, as we centralize authority, ultimately you get authoritarianism. And I think that he could easily be a medical dictator, if he were allowed to be."

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.
