On Sunday, Senator Rand Paul became the first Senator to test positive for COVID-19. So, as our elected officials continue to meet in Washington (why?!), what happens if the pandemic encompasses Capitol Hill, too? Who legislates when half of D.C. is sick? And what happens if our nation dissolves into civil unrest (or is attacked from an outside force) but there aren't any nations available to come to our aid? Newsweek published reports last weekend detailing secret military plans that prepares for all three scenarios. Hopefully the coronavirus crisis never reaches the level where martial law is needed. But in the meantime, state leaders should stop relying on the federal government and do everything they can (like deploying the national guard themselves!) to keep the power at the state level.
I have one simple rule for anyone who wants to restore our nation. We will not settle for private patriotism and public compliance. The tyranny ends with us. Anyone who believes in the truth, please join me.
Buckle up, this one is a wild ride. Author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and podcast host of "Your Welcome" Michael Malice wants to burn it all down, peacefully and with a smile. "My rights are NOT up for discussion," he tells Glenn. He explains why his version of America will save America. He and Glenn also discuss why corporate media is shrinking, why Boomers love Martin Luther King Jr., how Trump earned the spite vote, and why gun control is officially solved. But how does anarchism solve the China problem or potential nuclear threats? Somehow, he has the answer. He also tells Glenn how a concept like Blaze Media brought down the Soviet Union and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.
On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.
Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.
"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.
Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.
Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.
Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'
