Lead up to Iowa Caucus: Michele Bachmann

Glenn welcomed Congresswoman Michele Bachmann back to the radio show today as part of a series of interviewing profiling GOP candidates before the first primary in January.

“Coming up this week and on Caucus Day we have Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann. Suspiciously there's two people that are missing there. One is Newt Gingrich and one is Mitt Romney. The invitation has been made to both,” Glenn said.”

Glenn said that it had been a few years since Romney had been on, but that “he's a nice guy. I like him personally. I think he is a man of decency, but he has declined to be on the program.”

Glenn added that Newt had done his “tour of duty” after last week’s appearance.

Glenn welcomed the Congresswoman to the program and asked her whether or not she was getting frustrated with how many debates there have been so far.

“Actually I think they've been very good, to be honest with you. All kidding aside. Because what they've revealed is they've really pulled back the layers on who people are. And I think that's been a good thing because there's been a lot of surprises along the way. During the course of these debates people have learned things and it's affected people's views on the candidates,” she said.

“I think we've found people's demeanor and style and where they stand on issues and I think in this last one that we had this last weekend, we found that there's really not a dime's worth of difference between some of these candidates. They agree on almost everything and what's even scarier is they agree with Barack Obama,” she added.

Bachmann specifically addressed her “Newt Romney” comment, point out how similar to two candidates are to each other and to Barack Obama.

“Because if you look at their record and if you look at what they've stood for, both of them stand for the healthcare mandate. That's what the Supreme Court is taking up right now to determine constitutionality and Newt Gingrich has been a huge advocate for it for 20 years, including right up until this May. Conveniently just before he threw his hat in to run for president. And Governor Romney is the only governor in the history of the United States to only implement a healthcare mandate in his state.”

“Both of them are big government people,” she said.

Bachmann appealed to Tea Party supporters to do whatever they can to help her and her campaign over the next few weeks.

“Either come to Iowa, make phone calls from home or donate or get on your knees and say some prayers and we will turn the country around. We'll take the country back with a real Tea Partier with real Tea Party ideas,” she said.

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.

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."
