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. “Put in the half of the staff – 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 move for the 2012 election, and said now is the right time to share the story because “the exact same thing – the same people really – are doing this now in the GOP.”

“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 said it’s the same reason why lawmakers are not truly pursuing the persecution by the IRS, because progressives on both sides “want that tool in place…to come after people like you.”

“This has never been about left and right,” Beck said.  “This is about freedom, freedom, and tyranny.”

Beck has said multiple times that he has no desire to see a third party, and reminded how the Republican Party began.

“Before the GOP was in existence, it was a two party system – the Democrats and the Whigs,” Beck said, noting that many Whigs and a fair number of Democrats were frustrated that both parties were offering much of the same.

“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,” Beck continued.  “Within four years, 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, Rand Paul may be the “Charles Sumner” of today, and he has no doubt that someday soon they will be “the most beloved members of the new Republican Party…”

I watched this on his program this afternoon. You know who the ring leader was - though Beck did not name him - Dick Armey. I never trusted Armey and wondered how he got so high up in FW in the first place.  HE was a Trojan Horse...

I have had personal experience with Mr. Armey and found him to be totally untrustworthy and a total snake in the grass!

I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him!

I hope FW is more careful who they associate with going forward.

Beck also said the big money GOP money is still really ticked at Rove for blowing a half billion of their dollars for zero return.

You are correct!!!!

Quote
On December 25, 2012, The Washington Post reported that Armey had escorted Matt Kibbe and FreedomWorks' vice president Adam Brandon out of the FreedomWorks offices with the help of an armed guard on September 4, 2012. Armey reportedly wanted FreedomWorks to support Todd Akin after his controversial "legitimate rape" comments.[21]

Yep... I remembered when this happened.  I think this could also be where some of the confusion about who supported Akin came from - Armey... who is a long time GOPe guy and never belonged at Freedom Works in the first place.  I can remember seeing him on Chris Matthews show during the Bush years and the guy is pure slime.

What's Beck's next big meteoric announcement?  Something that will shake the earth to its very core?

He traded in his addiction to alcohol for an addiction to being a total attention whore.

My first question is - "Why now?"

Why wait until now to release a year old story that was in the Washington Post?

I'm going to repeat my position on why I think Beck should not be doing this now.

For the first time in several years, I see the Republicans (most of them) united in defeating Obamacare.  I believe that defeating, stopping, slowing, defunding, or whatever can be done, is the most important thing they can be doing for the country.

And they need to have us united behind them in opposition to the horror of what this will do to destroy America.

Right now is the WRONG time to agitate for division within the Republican party.

I agree with sinkspur (to a degree), that the timing of this is for attention.  For Beck.

And I don't think it's for the betterment of this country.

Not now.

But it does create a stir and publicity for Beck, and he does seem to need that.

JMHO.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Music Lady they are not united.  The GOP e is being drug kicking and screaming through this and have already capitulated on Obamacare.  This was our chance to hold firm on principle, but the lobbyists are in control, not us.

I for one am thankful there is division still in the Republican Party, it means there is still hope.  You can’t say that about the Democrats.   Newly elected moderate Democrats who ran as a moderate quickly fall in line behind the Progressives or else. There is no dissension  in their ranks. You better fall in lock-step or your political career will be over and your personal life will be laid waste.

I know about the division, Rap.  I know who the elitists are.

But I also have heard Mitch McConnell in agreement with Rand Paul about fighting the Dems, and that is what I'm referring to.

You may believe they have capitulated, and all is lost, but the shut down is still going and more people are starting to realize that Obama is at fault.

I heard a series of interviews of students at the U of Colorado as I was coming home today, (listening to the Brian Fischer show), and they almost universally blamed Obama for the shutdown, and said it was because of the horror of Obamacare and his stubbornness.

In spite of everything the media and left is throwing at them, they have held firm against Obamacare, and frankly, I didn't think they had it in them.

I'm not giving up on the Republicans yet.  There are too many good guys to give up.

In fact, as soon as Glenn Beck says that the Republicans are "AS BAD AS" the Democrats, I turn his show off.

It's simply untrue, but he has found a way to get people to listen by playing the role he's playing on this.

I'm just not one of them.

I agree.  The division is a sign that there is thought. 

And right now, for now, the conservatives are winning the argument.

They just have to hold on.

You realize the Democratic Party is not the party for the little people, the poor and downtrodden?  It is now the party of big labor and cronism and they do what they can to keep the poor - poor - and dependent on THEM.  They want everyont to think they are our mommie and daddy and we have to do what they say and in return they will clothe and feed us.

I don't think there is an electable party for the poor and downtrodden. Also, like I said before, I don't support the Democrats.

More to the point......

LIBERALISM (which he espouses) does not help the downtrodden.

It's all a myth, which young'ns have chosen to swallow.

LIBERALISM only harms the poor, while pretending to help.

Conservatism helps the poor, by helping them out of poverty.

What our young spy espouses, keeps them downtrodden.
