Where does Glenn stand on Herman Cain?

Glenn is torn on what to think about the Herman Cain allegations. Glenn has met Cain several times and really likes him -- but is he a closet dirtbag? Is there truth to any of the allegations or is this a hit job? Why does Herman Cain have the worst campaign manager of all time? Glenn explores some of these questions and more -- the answers are important because unlike the left, Glenn is consistent. Character matters - if Cain doesn't have it, then he's got to go.

"I want to talk a little bit about Cain and how we as a show and his people are going to judge this because we're never going to know the truth. Never going to know the truth. We have to come to a decision. If we think the guy is guilty or if there's a good chance of being guilty, then you can't vote for him. Because character does matter," Glenn said.

"I can't vote for a guy without character," Glenn said.

Glenn explained that a lot of candidates won't come on his show because he will ask tough questions and be clear on points where he disagrees with a candidate.

"I will tell you this, that a lot of these guys, they won't come on. Cain is a guy who I met with several times. I like him. He's been on the show. However, we have been trying to get him for the last week. He won't come on this broadcast. He won't come on GBTV. And that's totally fine. That's totally fine. It may be that we're too small and it doesn't matter to him."

"They never know where I'm coming from. They never know. You get into a conversation with me; I can turn on you fast."

"I'm not going to tell you I agree on everything. And if I think you're a dirtbag, I'm going to call you out."

"I'm not going to play gotcha. That's the one thing I won't do that everybody else will. I won't play gotcha. I don't care about the ratings, much to everybody's chagrin. I don't care about the ratings. It's not about that. I actually believe the country is in trouble. I really want the best guy. I'm not going to play gotcha to get, you know, headlines or whatever. I don't really care. So sit down with him."

"So how do you judge him? How do you judge this scenario? Well, the first thing is we have to find out about these people. I would also like to be able to sit down with these women. I'd like to be able to have a fair ‑‑ I'm not going to try again gotcha on them. I could go either way. I don't know who to believe. I find it really fascinating that ‑‑ I find it fascinating a couple of things. One, that all these people are coming out right now. It doesn't make sense to me. It doesn't make sense to me. Two, I'd like to hear Herman Cain's wife on this."

"But anyway, we as people are going to have to decide unfortunately. And let's not let the press decide for us because haven't we been dealt enough lies? Don't we ‑‑ what have they given us before that is true? What have they given us lately that's true? Why should we listen to them now?

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
