GLENN: Let's see. Let me go to, let me go to Linda in Louisiana. Hello, Linda.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn.

GLENN: Hi.

CALLER: How are you today?

GLENN: Good, how are you?

CALLER: I'm good. That last call was a real... but anyway, that's not why I called.

GLENN: All right.

CALLER: You are not going to like this.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

CALLER: But I have written something and I actually came across it again this morning. So it's kind of something that's been around for a little while in my mind, and here goes. I hope you let me get through this whole thing.

GLENN: I'm very nerve I'm very nervous. Have you talked to our phone screener yet?

CALLER: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: All right. Go ahead.

CALLER: Yeah. Ten reasons why Glenn Beck should be president: One

GLENN: No.

GLENN: I'm making my list, Linda.

CALLER: Let me finish.

GLENN: I'm making a list. It's point/counterpoint.

CALLER: I'll send it to you. He understands the history of the country and what it means today. Number four, he understands the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and will hold to these.

Number six, he's a capitalist, and he believes in the free market system. Number seven, he knows failure and he knows what it means to fail. Number eight, he admits when he is wrong. Number nine, he believes in God and understands the role that this plays in our government. Number ten, he, like George Washington, doesn't want the job. And, when he's finished, he'll go home, plus has a great, great chalkboard.

PAT: (Laughing). That's a pretty good list. That's a pretty good list.

GLENN: I've got eight. I could only write eight. Now let me speak. Linda

CALLER: I don't like it, I know you don't like it, I'm sorry, Glenn, but it's the truth. I have looked for George Washington. I have looked for all of them. And I can't find them anywhere! And the only person that even sounds like it, even acts like it is you. And I'd love to know how many other people out there feel the same way I do. And if you can't do it, my husband has a request. Would you please write and put together your plan, the real plan for what this country needs to do and put it on the Internet, Glenn. Let everybody see it! Show people what we need to do! Write it all out! Put it out there! We need it!

GLENN: Okay. Linda.

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: I appreciate your feeling and I appreciate your passion. I really do. I am working as hard as I can and I'm working

CALLER: I understand, Glenn.

GLENN: I'm working as fast as I can.

CALLER: I know. I see how tired you are half the time. I can see it in your face. I can hear it in your voice. I know you're tired. But this is

GLENN: I know, I know. Linda, let me give you my list. Let me let me give you my list.

CALLER: Nero and how he was fiddling when Rome was burning. Well, guess what? The whole world seems to be on fire and what is the president doing? He's either dribbling or putting!

GLENN: All right, let me give you my list. First of all, reasons why I can't be the president of the United States: I'd actually use the nukes. Two, I have absolutely no political base. There is no one that would want me to be president of the United States as a the RNC, the DNC, it's just not going to happen. And with both of those machines against me in particular because of other things on the list, there's just not a chance of winning.

Three, there are much more qualified people out there. We just have to convince them. Anybody who anybody who has benefitted from this nation, it is time to go back even to our you know, one of the things I've been thinking about lately is you people who are retired, you're retired. Now, some people need to be retired at 65. Most do not. Get off the damn golf course! We need you. We need you to teach. We need you to teach our youth. For those people who have greatly benefitted and you are a former CEO or you're a former leader in anything, come back to work; we need you! Smarter people than me.

Four, my baggage of my life prior to this would disqualify me because of the way it would be used against me. The fact that there isn't an honest damn broker in the media, they will hold Jon Stewart up as a journalist, as a journalist and give him awards and they can somehow or another figure out when he's joking and when he's not joking but then everything I've ever said, most of which that gets me in trouble I've said as a joke in a Jon Stewart sort of fashion, that, of course, I mean realistically. There's not a chance.

Five, my wife and my family.

Six, my wife.

Seven, I came this close to losing my soul once before and I'm not going to lose my soul. And quite honestly, I just talked to a guy who was running for Senate. I spoke to him last night and I said, what makes you think you can go in there and not lose your soul? And he said, I'm not worried about it. And I said, then excuse me, sir, excuse me. You are exactly the kind that will because if you don't have a healthy dose of fear, you're going in against a machine. And quite honestly let me quote Ephesians: We are not battling flesh and blood. We are battling, I truly believe, the powers of darkness for our very souls, and it has nothing to do with Washington and it has everything to do with each of us.

And a selfish one at number eight: The president, the next president has to be a man that understands the patient has chemotherapy. This president that we have now and the people in office now will either convince you to do nothing, do little things, just eat better. Your heart has cancer. Just eat better, exercise. This president I think may in the end recommend that the heart is cut out because the heart is causing the problem. The next president has to convince the American people that they need chemotherapy. They need chemotherapy and it's going to hurt really, really badly. And I don't think I've tried. I've tried. I don't think I'm the guy that can convince them.

Linda, thanks for your call.

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.

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."
