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 Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

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?
