Perry vs. Romney = 2012 depression

Watching Perry and Romney bicker over who said what in their books was not exactly the inspiring talk conservatives want to hear. It's petty but worse yet - it reveals that each have far too much in common with Barack Obama, leaving many conservatives feeling like it's prom and they don't have a date. How did Glenn react to the testy exchange?

"I watched the debate and I think to myself, Who is the next President of the United States? And I think there's a little something in me that says the same thing that may be the little thing that speaks inside of you, too, Barack Obama, because I so far don't see anyone that I can say with great confidence, Yep, here he is," Glenn said,

"Lord, help us, please," he added.

Why was Glenn so worried? Because last night more politicians than ever seemed to have more in common with Barack Obama than anyone else.

"The fact is it was a bad debate last night. It's a bad debate," Pat said.

How is Romney seeming like Obama? In his book, he tried to draw distinctions between Obamacare and Romneycare. Stu explains, "He's always been trying to draw a distinction between Obamacare and Romneycare. His initial distinction in the hard cover book was that there was a public option involved in Obamacare. In other words, people are trying to say they're the same plan. However, there were some big differences, quote, in particular, our plan did not include a public insurance option and he goes on to describe that. That's all removed. Now, in the real policy of Obamacare, that was removed, as well. So, I think his defense there would be, well, we didn't put the public option part in there because it wasn't -- it didn't wind up in the end bill."

Stu added that in the hardcover version of his book, Romney said that "we can accomplish the same thing for everyone in the country and it could be done without letting government take over healthcare," implying that Romneycare was NOT a government takeover of healthcare since it was a state issue. However, that line has been omitted from the softcover version of Romney's book.

On the other hand, Rick Perry revealed an almost progressive stand on immigration and the border:

"There's nobody on this stage who has spent more time working on border security than I have. For a decade I've been the governor of a state with a 1200-mile border with Mexico. We put $400 million of our taxpayer money into securing that border. We've got our Texas Ranger recon teams there now. I supported Arizona's immigration law by joining in that lawsuit to defend it. Every day I have Texans on that border that are doing their job, but if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state from no other reason than they've been brought there, by no fault of their own, I don't think you have a heart," Perry said.

Combined with Perry's comments on immigration, both frontrunners seem to be appearing more like Barack Obama-lite than strong conservative options.

"We're in a 14-month period here that if Barack Obama wins and listen to this carefully, because anybody who -- anybody who tells you differently does not understand the fight that we are up against now. If Barack Obama wins or another Democrat wins that is in the, you know, progressive vein, the country is over. If we have a progressive on the right win, I will tell you that the country will be over. May not be in that term, but things are going to be so bad in that term that if it's just -- if it's not a stark reserves all engines, we have no chance of survival because they will use that four-year period to obstruct and to destroy and to blame on the Republicans and then you've lost the country the next time because the next time the guy will be running on a socialist platform," Glenn warned

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
