GLENN: From, Astroturf and the act of professional interest groups designing campaigns that appear to be grassroots efforts but are not. It is what the left has accused the tea parties of doing, only more and more it looks like an anti tea party movement is truly Astroturfing. Writing on January 15th, 2010: Glenn Greenwald at Salon noted that Barack Obama's new head of office of information and regulatory affairs listen to that. The office of information and regulatory affairs, Cass Sunstein who I maintain is the most dangerous man in America because you never see this guy coming. According to Red State, Cass Sunstein had championed creating fake websites and using outside 501(c)(3) interest groups to act as alleged independent champions of government policy and to, quote, cognitively infiltrate, end quote, opposition websites.

Is this abuse of power yet? In other words, Cass Sunstein has favored the government using outside parties as government propaganda agents to paint their opposition as fringe and undermine their credibility, kind of like what's been happening with the tea party movement. Lots of SEIU members pretending to be tea party activists, causing violence in front of TV cameras.

Sunstein advocates that government stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into chat rooms, quoting, into chat rooms, online social networks or even real space groups, end quote. He also proposes that the government make secret payments to so called, quote, independent credible voices to bolster the government's message.

Is it abuse of power yet?

Considering Sunstein's recommendations, it is not far removed to speculate that the Obama administration is behind a new anti tea party website called The Other 25, which defends the government from tea party criticisms and attacks the tea party movement as a fringe. The website purports to be authentically grassroots, though one must wonder when the last time any grassroots activists took the time to defend the government. The designer is affiliated with and other leftwing websites. But the most notable is the donation page. You can make donations to Democracy in Action. Democracy in Action is not for individual activists to use. It is for small and medium size 501(c)(3) organizations and others on the left. Democracy in action? Its clients include ACORN, true majority, and the NAACP. Let's also remember that Center For American Progress led by Obama's transition team director John Podesta has a regular 8:00 a.m. phone call to coordinate activity on the left. It's a play out of Lenin's handbook. Forget Alinsky. To call authentic inauthentic and then create something inauthentic, demanding it be called authentic. From Red State.

Absolutely believe that. That is what Cass Sunstein this is what Cass Sunstein does. He nudges. He moves. He slides into position.

Some honest reporting for once from the Washington Post comes from Robert McCartney, yesterday: I went to the tea party rally at the Washington Monument on Thursday to check out just how reactionary and potentially violent the movement truly was. Answer? Not very. Based on what I saw and heard, tea party members are not seething. They are not ready to explode racists, as some liberal commentators have caricatured them. Some are extremists and bigots, sure. The crowd was almost entirely white. I differ strenuously with the protests on about 95% of them. So in other words, this writer doesn't agree. Nonetheless, on the whole they struck me as a passionate conservative voice dedicated to working within the system rather than the dangerous militia types or a revival of the KKK. Although shrinking government is their primary goal, many conceded the that the country should keep Medicare and even Social Security. None were clamoring for civil disobedience, much less armed revolt. Someone in the Revolutionary War fired bullets. This time we're firing politicians, said Clinton Lee, a wedding photographer from Tampa.

PAT: Subversive, clearly. Wedding photographer?

GLENN: You can't trust them.

PAT: Can't.

GLENN: Cass Sunstein, the information and regulatory guy? Yeah, you can trust him.

PAT: He's in the government. He's in the government.

GLENN: Not the wedding photographer.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Clinton Lee from Tampa. The rally estimated in the tens of thousands also displayed a wacky irreverent spirit that I found endearing. I can't help but smile when paunchy small business owners age 50 and older don three cornered hats and Don rattlesnake flags in exercising their First Amendment right to peacefully assemble. The mix of kookiness and mistrust of authority reminded me of anti Vietnam War demonstrations

PAT: How about that.

GLENN: in which I participated over four decades ago in the same spot.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Participants of the tea party were appalled when I made that comparison. They hastened to say they weren't modern day hippies. I found I heartily agreed with the tea partiers on what is perhaps America's biggest concern, that America's swelling debt seriously threatens our long term prosperity. I part ways with the tea party on how to solve the problem. They want to slash the government. I'd be willing to raise taxes as part of the deal, but those are conventional disagreements that citizens can have in a civil way. Judging by what some portrayals of the tea party, one would think they posed a threat to the community. I think this is unbelievable. I think this is the first honest reporter that I have seen that has said I disagree with these guys vehemently, but I wanted to go see them myself.

PAT: And his name is Robert McCartney.

GLENN: Write Robert McCartney from the Washington Post. It was in yesterday's Post. Find it online.

PAT: Appreciate some good, honest reporting.

GLENN: Thank you.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You don't agree, but thank you.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
