‘A sham of a system’: What the released FISA docs really reveal

The Department of Justice released previously-classified documents Saturday relating to the FBI wiretapping of former Trump-campaign aide Carter Page, including the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court application for surveillance. Though heavily redacted, the 412 page document makes it clear that prior to applying for the FISA warrant, the FBI considered Page to be an "agent of a foreign power" based on information gathered and funded by the Democratic National Committee.

Here's what we know:

First, Russian intelligence agents infiltrated U.S. via political activists and social media to cause political chaos. But don't take our word for it, read the 37 page indictment for yourself here.

Second, Russian intelligence agents hacked the DNC and John Podesta, then released the information through websites such as Wikileaks in order to meddle with our election. However, the ultimate goal was not to elect a specific candidate, but to create social and political chaos. Again, no need to take anyone's word for it when you have access to the entire 29 page indictment here.

Thirdly, Christopher Steele, who compiled the 17 memos of the now-infamous "Steele dossier," was hired by Fusion GPS to gather "opposition research" that might be damaging to then-candidate Trump. We also know that the Steele dossier was paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Read the Republican memo here, and the Democrats' rebuttal here.

What we don't know:

According to Republicans, the newly released document shows that the FBI and DOJ relied on the Steele dossier (which was paid for by the DNC and the Clinton campaign) for their decision to surveil Page. At the same time, Democrats say the document is proof of criminal connections between the Trump campaign and Russia.

"The Steele dossier was the primary source for the FISA warrant, and the people that commissioned it were purposely concealing that from the court. The FBI and the DOJ look horrible here," said Glenn Beck on the show today. He added, "Something has to be done about this FISA court; it's out of control and a sham of a system … how many Americans are being surveilled right now on trumped-up charges like those on Carter Page? It's unconstitutional."

How is this allowed to happen in a system with checks and balances?

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

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?
