Glenn the seditionist

GLENN: Let me go to Joe Klein from Time magazine. He said this with Chris Matthews on NBC.

KLEIN: And she said, un American. Now, she said it was just his policies, not him, but those words are license words. They're permission words, you know?


PARKER: They're...(unintelligible).

KLEIN: You know, I did I did a little bit of research just before the show, it's no this little napkin here. I looked up the definition of sedition, which is "conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of the state." And a lot of these statements, especially the ones coming from people like Glenn Beck, and to a certain extent Sarah Palin, rub right next right up close to being seditious.


HEILEMANN: Well, and this is and, you know, Joe's right, and I I'll name another person. You know, name Rush Limbaugh, you know, who uses this phrase constantly, talks about the Obama administration as a regime.

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop, stop. How many times did Time magazine call the Bush administration a regime?

PAT: I think it was 16 in all. They called the first time they called the Bush administration a regime was one month into his administration. One month.

GLENN: Time magazine?

PAT: Time magazine, we did that chart.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

PAT: You know, because Chris Matthews himself has said it, the New York Times has said it and I think Time said it the most. I think it was 16 times, his own publication.

GLENN: All right. So this is ridiculous. Now for someone to speak out is sedition. I would challenge you to find that in the words of our founders. In fact, I believe it's in the Declaration of Independence that when a people find the government to be oppressive, it is our duty, and I'm not even going here. It's our duty to shake it off and to reconstitute a new government.

PAT: This is something that Judge Napolitano talked about at the American Revival a lot is the Sedition Act of 1798 with John Adams. It's so dangerous because they have this threat, we thought, and I think it was legitimate from the French that they were going to overthrow our government. They got nervous about that and so they passed this alien and sedition act.

GLENN: And it's exactly where Thomas Jefferson and names I mean, and John Adams went awry. John Adams Thomas Jefferson, he doesn't even have president of the United States on his tombstone. He didn't want to be the president.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He did it because of the sedition act that said you can't do this, you cannot do this. I mean, that's what the king that's why when the Declaration of Independence said, they are all going to die.

PAT: A lot of people think Adams was kind of pushed into this by a lot of his advisors and the people of his administration but the fact is he signed it into law and so for, what, four years until Jefferson was able to overturn it, it was really a blight in American history. And now they are trying to you know, they continually talk about the other thing Clinton was talking about was returning to the free speech of our founders? Well

GLENN: The free speech of our founders?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Then what is the Internet that they want to regulate?

PAT: Exactly.

GLENN: What is the Internet? The Internet is the modern day printing press. It is what Thomas Paine would be using today. I mean, and did you notice that Bill Clinton and, see, this is why this sedition act and everything else is a ruse. Why would you go out you are not going to go out and you are going to take really? You are going to take out Fox News, without an event, you are going to take out Fox News, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, you are going to do that? Really? Are you? No. They are not the target is not me or Rush or Fox. It's not. The target is you. If you notice, if you play back what the president said, the former president said on Friday, what he talked about was talk radio and the Internet. He talked about control of the Internet. Now, is it, is it just happenstance that we're setting up for an emergency and control of the Internet when Net neutrality has just been deemed unconstitutional by the courts and Obama says we'll do it one way or another, we'll do it through the FCC, we'll just make the Internet a utility. And then a week later Bill Clinton, speaking at the Center For American Progress, the Soros group, which is a big supporter of Internet neutrality, now all of a sudden he comes out and says this?

By the way, a month ago Bill Clinton came out and said that the tea partiers were the same kind of movement as the Contract For America in the Revolution of 1994, the Republican revolution. Well, which is it now, Bill, and what changed your mind? What makes the tea party the Republican Revolution in 1994 and now today makes it Timothy McVeigh? Did you have a conversation with someone? Did it happen to be at the Center For American Progress? What changed your mind on that, Mr. Clinton? Could you help us?

The target is not me. It's not Rush. It is you. You can silence our voices but as long as you can speak out. And look what they're doing now. We told you on Friday, there was a court case where they say you have no reason to expect privacy on your cellphone, in your Internet, Internet mail. They can, without a warrant they can go and check your e mail. That's what they are fighting for now in the court. Now federal security workers can snoop through more than your, you know, just your luggage. Now if you are deemed near a border, they can actually open up your computer and go through all of your computer. They can go through your phones, they can read your e mails, they can do everything. A digital seizure. Excuse me? Now if you are within 100 miles from Canada or Mexico, if you are traveling between Los Angeles and Phoenix, you can be stopped by the Department of Homeland Security and literally asked for your papers, drug dogs could be brought into the back of your vehicle without any reason. Doesn't the Fourth Amendment guarantee the right of Americans to be secure in their persons, their houses, their papers and their effects? It doesn't mean just papers. It means digital as well. But see, if they can say that you don't have a right to security on online, security in your e mail, security on your cellphone, they even are making the case now that you, because your cellphone can you triangulate, they don't need a warrant to say, where's Glenn Beck now? You don't have a reasonable right to privacy of location, the government is making this case now. Are you kidding me? If they can scare you into silence, they will. If they can use an emergency to take away your voice, they will. If they can do it legally, they will. If the court stops them, they will just change one way or another and Barack Obama said this over and over again. They will get it done.

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.
