Glenn Beck Reveals a Story He Has Not Been Able to Share for Over a Year

TheBlaze: Glenn Beck shared a story with viewers on Wednesday that he’s been keeping close to the vest since before the 2012 election, explaining that he’s been waiting for the right time to say what exactly happened, and what it means for the country.

It all began, Beck said, in what he believes was late August when he was getting ready to do a number of events with FreedomWorks.

“It’s about 4:00 in the afternoon and I get a call from the president of FreedomWorks, Matt Kibbe, and I can hear the distress in his voice,” Beck said.  “[Kibbe said], ‘Glenn, I’ve just been escorted out of my office by armed guards and told not to come back.’”

Kibbe added that he wasn’t the only one forcefully escorted out, and that they had been hijacked, so to speak, by the “old guard” GOP establishment.

“There was a coup during the election, and it was powerful,” Beck said.  “They were trying to get rid of the libertarian, Tea Party-minded power players, and first and foremost on that hit list was Matt Kibbe and his allies. They didn’t like the fact that FreedomWorks was cleaning house in the GOP…that they were targeting people like Orrin Hatch.  It didn’t sit well with the Karl Roves of the GOP world…”

Beck said that shortly thereafter he got a call from the man inside FreedomWorks who had “ordered the hit,” who explained how the whole situation was “really good” because now he was the face of FreedomWorks and people trust him.

“His face never saw the light of day on my program,” Beck said. “I hung up the phone with him, the next day I called board members of FreedomWorks…and we said we support the libertarian voice, and if you allow this coup to sit, we’re done and we’ll expose it.”

“It wasn’t even a week later the board took a vote and decided to reinstate Matt Kibbe as president,” Beck said. “All the libertarians that had been escorted out – reinstated all of them, and then escorted the leader of this coup and his cronies out the door for good.”

Beck spoke about the ramifications of the “coup” for the 2012 election, remarking: “So don’t tell me, GOP and John Cornyn and everybody else, about how FreedomWorks hurt the election.  You tied their hands during the last election.”

And now, Beck said, “the exact same thing – the same people really – are doing this” within the Republican Party at large — particularly in the United States Senate.

“Anyone in Congress or the Senate who associates with FreedomWorks, the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Tea Party, anybody, anybody is being targeted by the same class of establishment Republican progressives,” Beck said.  “They do not like it when you organize. They do not like it when you choose the candidates that you actually want.”

Beck added that it’s the same reason lawmakers are not truly pursuing the IRS’ targeting of small government groups, because progressives on both sides “want that tool in place…to come after people like you.”

But with the same struggle that occurred within FreedomWorks now gripping the Republican Party, Beck said that puts you in a position of immense power.

“You are the ones that can change the path.  So when I said to you last week, ‘defund the GOP,’ this is why I said it,” Beck explained.  “You are the board of directors…Luckily the board of directors actually believe in something.  And when they figured out they were being lied to, they didn’t want their money in it either. They didn’t want anything to do with it.”

Beck has said multiple times that he has no desire to see a third party, and just like FreedomWorks would have lost years of work and credibility had it given up and started over, so would conservatives if they attempt the same.

But that doesn’t mean that there can’t be an evolution of the Republican Party, Beck said, reminding viewers of how the party began.

“Before the GOP was in existence, it was a two party system – the Democrats and the Whigs,” Beck said.  “Charles Sumner was one of the most hated people by the Whigs and the Democrats…so much that he was literally beaten within an inch of his life on the House floor because no one stepped in to stop it.”

“Within four years,” he continued, “Sumner wasn’t the most hated anymore — he was the most beloved man in the Republican Party, and the Whigs were extinct…I’m telling you that’s what’s coming if we stand.”

Beck said men like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul may be the “Charles Sumner” of today, and he has no doubt they will be “the most beloved members of the new Republican Party, or whatever it’s called” in the near future.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
