Why have Newt and Mitt risen to the top?

Despite the massive wave of Tea Party type people in America, the GOP candidates that have so far risen to the top are basically big government Republicans Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. How could these two jump out ahead of the pack while the others flounder? Glenn explains why people are gravitating back towards the establishment GOP.

After looking at recent comments form Ann Coulter where she said we need "to have an electable candidate" - Glenn pointed out that a major issue that the GOP is having right now is that they are simply settling for someone who might have best chance at beating Obama.

"I really respect Ann Coulter. I think she's really smart, and I like her. I like her because she's absolutely unafraid," Glenn said.

He did, however, disagree with her.

"Look, you think these problems are going to go away if Barack Obama is not in office? Look, I want Barack Obama out of office as much as anybody," Glenn said.

"I want somebody who understands the Constitution, can articulate the Constitution, can articulate what small government means, can articulate what business means, how it happens, can articulate what the responsibility of individuals are on charity and the responsibility to not engage on those things with the federal government because then it's a bloated government. I want somebody who can articulate those things but actually means them when they say it."

As for Gingrich's rise over Romney, Glenn believes the established GOP is backing Gingrich over Romney.

"You can't tell me that Mitt Romney is a big government guy and not tell me that about Newt Gingrich. I'm convinced that the established right is all for Newt Gingrich. They don't want Mitt Romney. They've made that determination. I think that the GOP will take Mitt Romney because I think he'll play ball, but there's problems with Mitt Romney, you know. He's a big Wall Street guy. He's flip‑flopped. You know, there's problems with Romney," Glenn said.

"Gingrich has all those problems times three," Stu added. "Honestly I think, I think a lot of people on the right are looking for an alternative to Romney because they don't like him and they are looking and they see Gingrich as the only other guy who performs well in debates."

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
